THE MATT TREACY COLUMN - Local rivalry draws large crowds

26 January 2006

It has been a while since Parnell Park was full to bursting point in January. The official attendance last Sunday for the O'Byrne Cup semi-final between Dublin and Meath was over 8,000, but with children admitted free, and clearly in abundance, the true figure was closer to 12,000. Free article

A triumph of substance over style

26 January 2006

The repeatedly made similarities between the reception Professor Noam Chomsky got in Dublin last week and that of a rock star were reinforced as we filed out of the RDS last week. Chomsky and his wife were getting into their car as we passed and a clutch of teenage girls in front of us starting calling 'We love you Noam'. Not bad for a man two years short of eighty.

Bin these rags - By Jon O' Brien

26 January 2006

The Irish media is, as we know, dominated by anti-national and pro-British elements, who espouse neo-unionism and use their domination of public discussion to suppress opinions contrary to their own, and particularly to suppress opinions that might challenge the privilege and wealth of those who own the media.

Cúlchaint...le Seán ó Donaile - Ca bhfuil na Volunteers?

26 January 2006

De réir suirbhe atá déanta ag Fianna Fáil le deanaí léiríonn sé go bhfuil laghdú an mhór ar obair dheonach a bhí traidisiúnta i measc na gcumainn áitiúla. Ní h-iad Fianna Fáil an t-aon phairtí go bhfuil an fhadhb seo acu, is cosúil go bhfuil seo ag cur as do na páirtithe poilitíochta eile chomh maith. Free article

26 January 2006

Tá formhór daoine, gan amhras, ar son athbhreithniú a dhéanamh ar mhúineadh na Gaeilge, idir iad siúd atá tiomnaithe do leas an teanga agus iad siúd atá frith-Ghaelach.
