Blogging about a New Ireland

And so I tentatively take my first steps into the blogosphere. I intend to use this space as a means of explaining and promoting a view of Ireland today and how we can build a New Ireland and restore the All-Ireland Republic promised by the proclamation of 1916. A real Republic shaped by the Irish people themselves rather than an act of Westminster or the IMF or the ECB for that matter. We hear calls for a New Republic and an alternative to the failed politics and economics of the present entity in the 26 Counties. That state is a parody of a true Republic and unworthy of the name. But enough for now. I am about to head to a launch in Naas of a book dealing with the history of Kildare during - what some in my opinion wrongly- call the civil war in 1922/23.
More of that anon.

Slan leat.


  1. Maith an fear Des. Keep up the good work. Im looking forward to hearing more from you.

  2. Des look forward to following the blog. Could you keep us posted about that book. I have a friend whose grand-uncle was executed along with six of his comrades by the Staters in Kildare during the counter revolution. I would like to source a copy of the book. Go raibh maith agat.
