The Mary Nelis Column

1 April 2010

It all looks so frightenly familiar. Just when the hope that some vestige of truth might emerge on the sordid dealings of collusion in Britain's dirty war of the past 30-odd years, the goalposts have been moved yet again. The ghosts of Stalker/Sampson, have been stalking the corridors of the headquarters of the Historical Enquiries Team and Commander Dave Cox, the British import overseeing the investigations into some 3,000 so-called cold cases, would have been looking over his shoulder at his business acquaintances, lest he suffer the same fate as John Stalker.

The Haitian Model

1 April 2010

If you required a metaphor to explain the devastation let loose on Haiti in the aftermath of the 12 January earthquake, you need look no further than the story of the medical school that was opened at the University of Tabarre, Port-au-Prince, in December 2003.

Here in the Phoblacht bunker it's unclear. Actually, you've probably never heard of Andrew Doyle - unless you're from Wicklow, in which case you probably have but, being from Wicklow, have problems sufficient unto the day to be worrying about. Andrew is a member of Fine Gael, which some of you might remember means 'United Ireland' in our native tongue. Technically that's Fine Gael's official name though it's not clear whether it's just them being ironic or whether they think Fine Gael means 'right-wing anti-worker bastards with a lengthy history of flirting with fascism'. Some of them have very poor Irish. Free article

Remembering the Past: The Proclamation

1 April 2010

The 1916 Proclamation stands as probably the single most important document in Irish history and one of the most significant documents in the history of progressive movements all over the world. In choosing to set out not only their motivation for an armed revolt against British rule but also the rights on which the Irish Republic would be based, the authors of the Proclamation left a lasting legacy.
