N. Chomsky on the likelihood of a USA attack on Iran: "They're desperate. Everything they touch is in ruins. They're even in danger of losing control over Middle Eastern oil.

Labour in the West of Ireland appears to be in serious trouble. The latest high profile member to resign from the party is the sole Labour councillor on Galway County Council, Clr Colm Keavney. Taking into consideration the resignations in Leitrim, Sligo and Galway City in the recent past it looks like the Labour Party West of the Shannon is in meltdown. read full story / add a comment

After our successful hijacking of the opening of the Woodie's DIY store in Limerick last week, the Limerick and Galway branches of the IPSC again combined forces, this time for an eight hour stint outside the boarded up Taffe's Sweater Shop in Shop Street yesterday. Fortunately, or unfortunately there was a coachload or two of Israeli tourists in town and a serious tranche of them were trigger happy and wanton with their spleen and denial when they chanced upon our Israeli Blood Diamonds petition/info table. read full story / add a comment

ILLEGAL Guns on sale OPENLY at the Galway Races while Bertie bets on the horses.

Illegal firearms in the form of pellet guns with plastic bullets were on sale openly today at the Galway Races. Up to 15 stalls were observed selling three different types of guns from Handgun size to Rifle starting at 15 euro. Others including children were observed selling the illegal items from the back of vans.

‘These guns will no doubt be used to slaughter innocent cats, dogs and birds. The plastic orange bullets could also take a child’s eye out. We are disgusted at the Race organisers who obviously are turning a blind eye to this activity, along with a total disregard for the growing number of cruelty cases and deaths involved in Horse Racing.

The Galway Alliance Against War is organising a “99 Red Balloon Peace Event” at Galway’s Spanish Arch at noon on Sunday 24th June, the same day as the Salthill Air Show. Last year the Galway peace group ran a similar event, which ended in controversy when the Gardaí burst most of the red balloons. At the time the authorities claimed that the warplanes would be endangered if the balloons “collided” with them. Such claims were greeted with incredulity and the Gardaí were left with what resembled egg on their faces. read full story / add a comment

Outraged but not surprised at, what amounts to a mainstream media/political parties cosy conspirancy not to make Ireland's aiding and abetting of the attack on Iraq an electoral issue, two anti-war activists, early today, took to Galway's streets to say our piece through paint brushes and the ad-busting of Ahern's election placards.
