THE Annual Manchester Martyrs Commemoration Weekend, which takes place this year from November 26th to 28th, has become an important date in the calendar for republicans in west Cork and further afield.

Torture victims put British Government in the dock

28 October 2010


HUNDREDS of nationalists imprisoned by the British Government during the years of internment without trial between 1971 and 1975 may yet get their day in court.
A campaign spearheaded by Coiste na nIarchimí, the republican ex-prisoners’ support network, is trying to get the British Government into court to answer for the wrongs inflicted on the more than... Free article

Hello, caller. You’re on the Connolly Line

28 October 2010

FIRST OFF, let’s get the health warning out of the way.
Joe Duffy as a broadcaster is an immense talent. In another, better world, Tubbers would be just a Gerry Ryan radio jock clone and Duffy would be anchoring The Late Late Show. Duffy would have remembered that he was once a student radical and would have turned his innate grasp of populist outrage at any number of targets and... Free article

An Ghaeilge faoi ionsaí - mar is gnách!

28 October 2010

MÁ luaitear an Ghaeilge mar phríomhtheanga an stáit i mBunreacht na Sé Chontaetha Fichead, tá’s againn nach mar sin atá in aigne an lucht rachmais.  Dóibhsean is bac í an Ghaeilge ar bhóthar an Eorpachais, agus is cur amú aon airgead a chaitear leí.
Orthu siúd is mó a léiríonn dímheas don Ghaeilge tá Ed Walsh, iar-uachtarán Ollscoil Luimnigh, agus, dar leis féin, intleachtóir an... Free article

Tory mythology and the ConDem Coalition’s cuts


“WE’RE the radicals now,” British Prime Minister David Cameron announced to a buoyant Conservative Party conference last month. On the cover of the latest edition of the Economist magazine, Cameron is depicted sporting a red, white and blue ‘Mohican’ hairstyle, the classic punk symbol of rebellion utilised to... Free article

Letter to the Taoiseach

28 October 2010

I WAS addressing Leaving Cert students from Drogheda in Room 375 of Stormont Parliament Buildings in the last couple of weeks. Actually, it’s more an Assembly than a Parliament because, as you know, Taoiseach, that is in Kildare Street. Anyway, it was great to see the students up in Stormont and both myself and Mervin Storey of the DUP made a stab at interpreting the history of... Free article

Briseann nádúr...

28 October 2010

BHÍ mé sa Bhriotáin le déanaí nuair a thosaigh na stailceanna in aghaidh cinneadh aois an phinsin a ardú ó 60 go 62.
Sa sráidbhaile ina raibh mé bíonn margadh gach Máirt. Cé go bhfuil an samhradh thart, bíonn go leor daoine go fóill ag dul timpeall ag ceannach a gcuid glasraí, cáise, iasc agus eile. Timpeall a deich, thar thorann an mhargaidh féin bhí gleo eile le cluinsint, glór... Free article

Stieg in the tale

IT WAS ONLY when comments from friends and colleagues that they were either “doing the Millennium” or “I had to stay up and finish Millennium” got to double figures that I realised something was up and maybe I was missing important stuff. It was a bit like those teenage years when schoolfriends were re-reading Lord Of the Rings and I had barely finished The... Free article

My plank for the Presidency

28 October 2010

YOU THINK you’re angry, do you? Reading the paper, watching Brian Cowen on TV, seeing the bankers, developers and financial gurus who got us into this mess get off scot-free while everyone else gets it in the neck makes you a little mad? Peeved perhaps?
I’m so mad I’ve started randomly setting things on fire.
I stand outside Brian Lenihan’s house in the pouring rain, just watching... Free article

Child homelessness up 60% in 3 years

28 October 2010

THE revelation that child homelessness in the 26 Counties has increased by 60% over the last three years has been described by Sinn Féin deputy leader Mary Lou McDonald as “horrific”. The Dublin Central Sinn Féin representative said:
