Camilo CienfuegosWednesday 20th October

ON our second morning in Santiago de Cuba we began the day with a visit to Moncada Barracks. This was the location of the first action of Fidel Castro’s revolution and it was at this site on 26th July 1963 that young men from all over Cuba were shot dead by the Batista Government. It was also the site of torture of many of the revolutionaries. The museum... Free article

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.

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
