Pól Ó Lorcáin
Paul Larkin

Chroniclers are privileged to enter where they list, to come and go through keyholes, to ride upon the wind, to overcome in their soarings up and down, all obstacles of distance, time and place.
Charles Dickens - Barnaby Rudge, Chapter The Ninth

For May Day 2010

Lá na n-oibrithe ar fud an domhain. A day for workers - en todo el mundo.

No to Fascism. No to Capitalism.

Ní neart go cur le cheile
El pueblo unido jamas sera vencido
The people united will never be defeated

Remember Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, the cowardice of the Catholic Heirarchy, RTÉ and the Irish Times. Remember that our leading writers and journalists censored news from the North. They are part of the problem not the solution. They are the sick bourgeoisie.


Remember the dark winter of 1979 and the fact that we fought back and will always fight back. The spirit of freedom is everywhere - in Ireland, in England, Palestine, even in Israel.

Listen to Tom Robinson sing the Winter of 79 and be inspired:

THE WINTER OF 79 - Tom Robinson

All you kids that just sit and whine
You should have been there back in '79
You say we're giving you a real hard time
You boys are really breaking my heart
Spurs beat Arsenal, what a game
The blood was running in the drains
Intercity took the trains
And really took the place apart
That was the year Nan Harris died
And Charlie Jones committed suicide
The world we knew busted open wide
In the winter of '79

I'd been working on and off
A pint of beer was still ten bob
My brand new Bonneville got ripped off
I more or less give up trying
They stopped the Social in the spring
And quite a few communists got run in
And National Service come back in
In the winter of '79
When Marco's caff went up in flames
The Vambo boys took the blame
The SAS come and took our names
In the winter of '79

It was us poor bastards took the chop
When the tubes gone up and the buses stopped
The top people still come out on top
The government never resigned
The Carib Club got petrol bombed
The National Front was getting awful strong
They done in Dave and Dagenham Ron
In the winter of '79
When all the gay geezers got put inside
And coloured kids was getting crucified
A few fought back and a few folks died
In the winter of '79

Yes a few of us fought
And a few of us died
In the winter of '79


Tiocfaidh ár mbláth
Let a million Communist flowers bloom

(real Communism this time - by the people, of the people,for the people)
