The ‘Green Tide’ surges forward

IT IS A MEASURE of the sense of political urgency with which the Sinn Féin leadership views the economic crisis in Ireland (and particularly the 26 Counties) that we decided to stand Martin McGuinness in the Presidential election.
To borrow a phrase first used by the same political establishment which institutionalised the corrupt and gombeen... Free article

History writing thrives on eve of ‘decade of centenaries’

5 December 2011



WITHOUT QUESTION, the publishing highlight of the year 2011 for Irish republicans had to be the launch of Ruán O’Donnell’s Special Category – The IRA in English Prisons, which is covered elsewhere in this paper. I was at the launch in Kilmainham Jail and, thinking about it afterwards, it was a landmark event with the testimony of... Free article

Ní mór claontachas a ruaigeadh amach as gach chuid de RTÉ

5 December 2011

Más maith is mithid go bhfuil an ceathrar is mó a bhfuil freagarthacht orthu as an ionsaí suarach leabhalach a rinne RTÉ ar an tAthair Kevin Reynolds ag “seasamh ar leataobh.”
Is díol trua í ag an am céanna gur go drogallach a tarraingíodh RTÉ go dtí an pointe seo, agus gach rud atá déanta ag RTÉ faoin scéal go dtí seo thabharfadh sé le fios nach bhfuil a leithscéal ró-ionraic is... Free article

Fine Gael making an honest show of Labour

5 December 2011

YOU’D ALMOST feel sorry for the Labour Party. Almost. Individually, they’re not bad people – I’d count a number of them among my friends and there are, hidden here and there within it, a few remaining Labour politicians of genuine conviction and principle

The writings of the respected... Free article
