Kilkenny was the first to successfully oppose a Direct Provision centre  that the Bertie Ahern FF government planned to build here at Leggetsrath in  the millennium year of 2000 AD.  The campaign, which included seeking a High Court injunction, was led by Council staff officer Mike O’Brien, a band musician and popular local radio host as well.

That campaign was supported by Phil Hogan TD. who  was vociferous against  any idea of a Direct Provision centre being built anywhere in Kilkenny. Most other local politicians here opposed it too. In fact the temporary centre for immigrants at John’s Green was closed down as well, once the government had taken the temperature of the local populace in Kilkenny.

It is well known that the government won’t place a Direct provision centre in Dublin 4 or in the wealthier parts of  south County Dublin and Dun Laoghaire. So how can lefties and liberals both in government, media and lefty/liberal parties expect the people of rural Ireland to welcome such centres when they refused them in their own localities?

There were no ‘far right’ or even ‘right wing’ personalities involved in that successful Kilkenny campaign, unless you consider Phil Hogan or  Mike O’Brien to be right wing. There was also a successful campaign against a Direct provision centre the Fianna Fail government wanted to build at Rosslare back then.

Just as there are no right wing parties involved in Oughterard either, despite the Times efforts to create a Hitlerian Munich in Connemara.

Fears in Oughterard existed before everybody, Right, Left and Centre, started tweeting. The far-right have not become involved. For instance Justin Barrett and his National Party have failed to become involved.  So have Identity Ireland and Irexit., And despite efforts to try and drag her over to Oughterard from her campaign at Google in Dublin, Gemma O’Doherty has not been involved either in Oughterard. No neo-Nazis are involved as Hitler backed Islam as his ally in the Middle East in WW2, welcoming The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem to a grand State Visit to Germany with an SS honour guard thrown in!

Since then, however,  a few anti-immigration campaigners have attempted to steer the debate itself and exploit the resulting publicity. With some success, it must be said. It’s a democracy and people are fully entitled to voice their opposition to such centres- just as we did successfully here in Kilkenny back in 2000, and most recently to the mosque, successfully as well.

It has become a familiar pattern in rural towns. Local rumours of a centre spread quickly. A lack of information from the Government creates a vacuum. That vacuum is quickly filled by  online traffic, that is not all of the far right, as the Times tries to make out. As I explain, not a single far right party has been involved.

“Videos and other content is quickly created, and shared widely – not just to influence the local debate, but the national one, too. It is difficult to gauge how successful these tactics are,” the Times accuses – why, do they want to silence everybody online?

‘Asylum industry’

Initially, some in Oughterard, including one of the main organisers, Patrick Curran appeared to welcome outside anti-immigration voices. Now they want to exclude them, fearing that they will be tarred by association.

One of the main agitators travelling to towns earmarked for direct provision or asylum housing is Gearóid Murphy, a Cork man, who has visited Oughterard, Lismore, Lisdoonvarna and Roosky.

Murphy , who is not involved in any right wing party, frequently promotes far-right talking points on social media, particularly a theory claiming the aim of western governments is to replace native populations with immigrants for economic or other reasons.

In a now-deleted tweet, Murphy describes his political views as “probably somewhere between libertarianism and national socialism with a touch of Christian ethos”. but he is not a member of any political party or grouping, and never has as far as we can make out.

In 2017 he posted a series of tweets expressing sympathy for white nationalists marching in Charlottesville in the US, the time they provoked riots by determining to blow up Robert E. Lee’s statue.
Following the march, the Times accuses that Murphy posted: “I can’t imagine how surreal and frankly terrifying it felt for WNs in Charlottesville. And while I obviously don’t condone the car attack…”” .
– We only have their word for that, we don’t know, except we do know that Murphy is not and never has been a member of any right wing party. The Times are really struggling to try and prove their far right allegations.

The opposite is fact. Oughterard took the far right in Ireland by total surprise! And they are not geared to react as far away as over on the Atlantic seaboard 20 miles west of Galway city.

The Times alleges that  “a two-hour YouTube video from Murphy criticising the Government and the “asylum industry” was widely shared in Oughterard and praised by some as “a one-stop shop” for information about direct provision. The funny thing is that nobody on the right in Ireland seems to know this Murphy!

Such towns, he says, should “identify and marginalise” Government-connected moles, subverters and intimidators within their ranks “who are lurking among you”, the Times continues.

Advising locals to engage in Machiavellian thinking, he states: “They can have no part in this discussion about your community. And they certainly should not be representing you and speaking for you.”

Well, whether he said all that or not, it is the precise advice that a solicitor would give.

Public meetings are useful, too, to drum up support, especially if they are video-taped, and shared online. His advice, he says, was given in Rooskey, and it worked. Again, that’s only common sense. The Times seem to want to make a one-man Johnny Rambo out of this mysterious Murphy chap.

Patrick Curran, a businessman who helps lead the “Oughterard says No to inhumane direct provision centres” campaign initially praised the video which he called, in a Facebook post, “extremely factual and well put together”.

Murphy filmed the Oughterard meeting, capturing Independent TD Noel Grealish’s declaration that African asylum seekers are sponging “off the system here”.Oughterard


Climate changeSchoolgirls out protesting against climate change who we interviewed at the town hall in Kilkenny couldn’t care less about the science.

I have never encountered such ignorance about the subject that they are protesting against as I did amongst the 150 girls protesting at Kilkenny town hall.

They actually told me that they don’t care about the science, that they were there to support Greta – who hasn’t a clue about the science of climate change either.

But RTE treated such girls that they interviewed as all-knowing heroines. This is a repeat of the phoney RTE interviewing technique of promoting ignorance as bliss so as to mislead the public. Even worse the RTE interviewing journalists hadn’t a clue about how climate change works either.

The interviews were shallow  with both interviewer and guest ignorant of the subject they were supposed to be seriously discussing – it was a pure propaganda exercise!

It was deliberately misleading as public service broadcasting, not that any of the newspapers are going to pull them up over it – they probably know as much anyway!

They were all totally ignorant and couldn’t care less. They simply enjoyed the limelight despite their ignorance of the issue under protest.

RTE bear most of the blame for these youngsters out on the streets of Ireland, it’s child abuse on a massive scale, getting the kids out to do their dirty work for them!

Meanwhile this bright morning, RTE starts another day of high drama in their news programmes about  these phoney climate change marches arranged throughout the world yesterday of mostly frenetic young girls. They would teach Dr. Goebbels. They performed much the same art in the same sex and abortion referenda in recent years and now RTE are perfecting their technique of the mass persuasion that they call news. It’s no more than bad theatre.

Climate Change by Carbon is the Hoax of the 21st Century!

WE NEED A SOLAR PARTY! by Michael McGrath


To combat all the misinformation about climate change being put out by the media and the green parties , we need to form a Solar party to represent the truth that all climate change is based on the periodicity of sunspot activity on the surface of the Sun.

A full political party, it would have members worldwide to oppose the Hoax of the Century – climate change falsely based on carbon dioxide content,

I have no quarrel with maintaining a clean environment, I have no problem with keeping plastics down. As a photographer I especially hate the way they use plastic in the manufacture of cameras today. It’s ugly and cheap. But none of that causes climate change.

We need to form a party with the principal objects of educating people, of abolishing carbon taxes,  to follow the brave lead of President Trump and lead our people out of the fraudulent Con Job called the Paris accord.

The sheer hypocrisy of it all – if, as they maintain carbon dioxide causes climate change why then have they been busy importing a million extra people into Ireland, because people produce carbon dioxide in bucketfuls!

The entire presentation of the carbon-based climate change argument is based on lies and  hypocrisy, big lies by big media and big political parties.  We need our own party to challenge this head on in a scientific and professional manner. What say you? Anybody interested in starting such a movement please get in touch.

It need not contest elections, not for a start at any rate, but simply and honestly present the truth and the facts about climate change to the voter and get them to change their minds and see and vote for candidates who represent our reality.

We could start with a meeting here in medieval Kilkenny of all those interested in setting up The Solar Party to create the right environment.  We need to agitate for the closure of the phoney government climate change Department and its even more idiotic ministerial post in government.

We need to agitate for RTE in Ireland to tell the other side of the story, we need as our motto “An Fhirinne in Aghaidh an Domhain” , the Truth against the World, the slogan of our ancient wise Druids who were acknowledged experts on climate, on solar, lunar and planetary cycles.

We need to show that the world is now in the grip of a solar Maunder Minimum that in fact is reversing the global temperature as it does periodically throughout time.  We need to show and to teach people the real science of climate change based on solar periodicity, and we need to get started right now.

We need to do this by tackling parties and candidates right there on the doorsteps as they canvass during elections and we don’t need any candidates, not at the start anyway, to do this and tell people the truth on their own doorsteps while the Greens and the big parties are trying to tell them more lies. We need to expose the fraud of little kids like Greta Turnberg being used in propaganda exercises to fool the people even further.

We’d have our own posters and leaflets explaining the grand Hoax of  carbon-based climate change directly to the people bang on at election time, while we could take the advantage to tell them about other evils such as mass immigration too – that actually increases carbon dioxide on a massive scale in the country. We would no longer have to sit idly by during elections but we would be able to get out there, contradict the party liars on the doorsteps and show the people the best way to save our country and preserve the Nation into the future.


by Michael McGrath, Ard Drui Teamhair ‘Is Eire.

The Archdruid of Dublin, Anrai O’Raghallaigh of the Liberties, insisted as far back as 1994, a quarter of a century ago on the Hill of tara, that Druidry is the religion of the Irish people, as well as having pure Welsh and Gaulish components in the present age.

The Druids were always an intellectual Irish elite here.

Not only that, but Druidry is celebrated far and wide throughout England, Scotland, New Zealand, Australia , the USA and Canada as a belief system for the majority white inhabitants of those far-off lands today.

In Wales the Druid Order there is avowedly Welsh and does not take members of any other nationality. Here we have an account of a recent 21st century installation of n Archbishop of Canterbury as a white Welsh Druid:

Archbishop named ‘white druid’

ST. DAVID’S, Wales — The newly nominated archbishop of Canterbury was installed Monday as an honorary white druid, alarming some conservative clergy in the Church of England.

Rowan Williams, currently archbishop of Wales, was inducted into the Gorsedd of Bards, an organization that promotes Welsh language and culture and is not a religion.

Druids, who were both priests and judges, were a ruling class in ancient Celtic society.

“I think the Archbishop of Canterbury-designate needs to consider what other people, non-Welsh members of the Anglican communion, think he is doing,” said the Rev. Angus Macleay of the Evangelical Reform Group.

Williams said that he was “very saddened that some people have reached the wrong conclusion about the ceremony.”

“If people had actually looked at the words of the hymns and text used, they would have seen a very Christian service,” said Williams.

The archbishop wore a white robe for the ceremony and chose the bardic name of ap Aneurin. That was a tribute both to a sixth-century Welsh poet and to Aneurin Bevan, a postwar Labor Party politician remembered as the founder of the National Health Service.

Elfyn Llwyd, a politician from Wales’ Plaid Cymru party and a member of the Gorsedd, said the ceremony was a “quaint induction” and the group was entirely dedicated to developing the Welsh language and culture.

“It is clearly not a pagan organization — I would not be a member of it if it were, and nor would many other people of all religious persuasions who are members,” Llwyd said.

“It is an old form of induction, there is no worshipping of any pagan gods of the kind. It is simply a rather quaint induction,” Llwyd said.

“From there on it’s a vehicle for assisting the development of the Welsh language and culture and nothing can be wrong with that.”

The ceremony was part of the National Eisteddfod, a celebration of Welsh culture.

Although the Gorsedd of Bards calls its members druids, the organization dates only as far back as 1792 — the brainchild of Welsh scholar Iolo Morganwg.

Past members included the actor Richard Burton and Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

The Archdruid of Tara and Ireland has declared to the world on the Hill of Tara that the Irish Druid Order is for native Irish people only, as well as the diaspora of course. Archdruid O’Raghaillaigh of Dublin is on record as stating clearly that Druidry in Ireland is for the irish only and that one must be native Irish to qualify as an Irish druid here.

So Druidry is now the only white native Irish religion in Ireland and Irish druids proclaim Druidry as their heritage and belonging only to us here in Ireland and not to any of the Incomers.

There can be exceptions and in the case of the Irish Druid Order  there was such an honourable exception when the late Druid Michael Poynder, Druid author, was made an Honoured Druid of the Irish Order.

At least the Irish still have our own native religion/belief system left when all else is done and gone.Beyo
