Indymedia had a pretty good write up recently which I enjoyed on the history of Irelands social centre’s and radical bookshops of which I don’t think there are enough of these days. The topic itself was titled 'A Hidden History of Social Centre’s In Ireland' (http://www.indymedia.ie/article/87044) and of course the North West once again seemed to have slipped peoples minds, apologies Darren. read full story / add a comment

This morning, the St Patrick's flag flutters in front of Limavady Orange hall in Co. Derry. The Irish flag of St Patrick, not often seen even in northern Irish Unionist districts, is a diagonal red cross against a white background. When combined with the English Cross of St George (a red cross against a white background, often seen at English football matches and on nationalist rallies in Georgia in eastern Europe) and the Scottish Cross of St Andrew (a diagonal white cross against a blue background) you get the British Union Flag, known colloquially as the "Union Jack". read full story / add a comment
