    Default Who is Diarmaid Cadhla?

    Can anyone provide me with a potted history?

    All I know about him is from this:

    thefuture Initiative

    Anyone care to help me fill in the blanks?

    The stuff on that site is very vague.

    Thanks!

    There's enough on the site to glean that he
    a) Is not much of a government fan
    b) Is not a fan of any political pary -liars all
    d) Probably for Irish unity in some form
    e) Probably speaks Irish
    f) Blames the EU/IMF/troika/liars
    g) Seems to like rebel songs
    h) Wants to Do the Time Warp again

    Think he attended a Regional Technical College. Involved in USI at the time of Brendan Doris' presidency in the early/mid-1980's. Was either a Maoist (like Doris) or a fellow traveler (with Doris). The web site of the National Convention indicated that they kept in touch.

    So CPPC is the originalists DDI?

    And there's bad blood between the two?

    Is that correct?

    Brendan Doris! Now, there's a blast from the past. He must have stayed in Bolton Street for about 20 years to ensure the continued dominance of the Communist Party of Ireland (Marxist-Leninist) of the students union.

    I met him once when I, foolishly, led a strike of apprentices for the right to join a trade union. We had to go to Bolton Street once a week for technical stuff so I planned a walk-out for a day when apprentices from all over Dublin would be there. We requested support from the students and I had an 'interview' with Comrade Doris, who attempted to persuade me of the genius of Enver Hoxha! None of the students came out with us and only two other apprentices joined me. That was the end of my career as a welder. Thanks be to Jaysus

    Coming from a country with no real communist anything it's so odd to see actual communists roaming around... kinda cute...

    CPI (ML) were very exotic. When Hoxha died they were disconsolate and organised a Book of Condolances outside the GPO! Some of them have done very well for themselves since abandoning the true path.
