One of the latest examples is the announcement of Michelle O’Neill as the new leader of Sinn Féin in the North while Martin McGuinness deals with a serious illness. Free article

Tá stoirm ag teacht

13 February 2017

D’FHREASTAL mé ar chruinniú ar 7 Eanair, i gCumann na Meirleach, Bóthar na bhFál. Cúige Uladh Plus a bhí ann agus thart ar 500 againn i lathair. Ní chruinniú fuarasta a bhí againn os rud é go raibh go leor fearg sa seomra. Is dócha gur meascán de neart gnéithe den straitéis s’againn le roinnt blianta anuas a ba chúis leis an fhearg.

Out of sight, out of mind

13 February 2017

SEÁN BYERS AND I were part of an Irish Congress of Trade Unions delegation to “The Jungle” refugee camp in Calais in September.

“An Gaoltacht”

13 February 2017

LABHAIR iar-phroisiúnaigh a bhí páirteach sa “Gaoltacht” – an leasainm a thugtar ar an phobal lán-Ghaeilge a d’eascair sna príosúin i rith thréimhse na coimhlinte – mar gheall ar an seal a chaitheadar ann.
