Nothing new under the Sun

We see in the latest edition of the excellent History Ireland that they're about to put all their archives online. Given some of the very questionable posts we've seen recently on the Easter Rising, John Redmond etc., this will no doubt become a very welcome resource on the Internet for reference purposes.

While perusing the existing HI website, we espied a number of online sample articles. Of particular interest is a piece covering a previous occasion when the 'Free Market' ideology so fashionable these days was put to the test right here in Ireland. We appear to have missed the Open Republic/Freedom Institute coverage of this case study, curiously enough.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.
