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.
