Two public protests will take place in West Cork in January as part of the West Cork Fluoride Free Campaign. The first protest will be held on The Fair Green in Macroom on Saturday, January 18 followed by one at Emmet Square in Clonakilty Town on Sunday, January 19. Both protests are at 1pm.

These events represent a significant development, as part of the West Cork Fluoride Free Campaign, whose mission is to have West Cork declared Ireland’s first Fluoride Free region assisted by six West Cork Towns serving clean, safe and healthy Fluoride Free water to the Public. The other objective of the campaign is to increase public backing for ‘The Girl Against Fluoride’ nationwide awareness campaign who’s team have brought awareness of the health risks posed to the public through the ingestion of fluoride to the whole country including the heart of the Government whose team made a presentation to Dail Eireann in 2013. This team in 2014 will also be initiating legal proceedings against the Irish State on behalf of the Irish people to have Ireland’s mandatory water fluoridation policy reversed.

Both of the upcoming public protests in Clonakilty and Macroom have huge local support and public endorsement from each of their respective town councils who in 2013 unanimously voted calling for the immediate cessation of water fluoridation in Ireland. The Campaign to end Water Fluoridation in Ireland also enjoys huge national support as well as backing from dozens of other cross party political representatives in West Cork and around the country.

Both events will also have public addresses delivered by a local Town Councillor and Aisling Fitzgibbon, AKA ‘The Girl Against Fluoride’.

People in the Macroom and Clonakilty areas are asked to come out and support these local West Cork Fluoride Free Events. Those around the country wishing to actively support the campaign to end Ireland’s mandatory water fluoridation policy can purchase ‘The Girl Against Fluoride’ naked calendar 2014 at www.thegirlagainstfluoride.com, all proceeds from which go directly towards funding the upcoming legal case being taken on behalf of the Irish People to have the mandatory water fluoridation policy reversed.

Submarines, American Sailors, and the Underwater War in Irish Waters, 1917-1918
by Dr John Borgonovo in The Parish Centre, Clonakilty
on Thursday Oct 26 2017 at 8.30 pm

In 1917, unrestricted submarine warfare by German U-boats brought the United States into WWI and created a crisis in Britain. To defeat the submarine menace, an American naval fleet was dispatched to County Cork, bringing about 10,000 sailors with it. This talk will explain the circumstances of this extraordinary event, and how Cork residents dealt with their unexpected American guests.

Dr John Borgonovo is a lecturer in the School of History at UCC. His publications include Spies, Informers, and the 'Anti-Sinn Féin' Society: The Intelligence War in Cork City, 1920-1921; The Dynamics of War and Revolution: Cork City, 1916-1918; Exercising a close vigilance over their daughters: Cork women, American sailors, and Catholic vigilantes, 1917-18; Something in the Nature of a Massacre: The Bandon Valley Killings Revisited (with Andy Bielenberg). His latest publication (with co-authors John Crowley, Donal Ó Drisceoil and Mike Murphy) is the highly acclaimed and magnificient Atlas of the Irish Revolution. In July of this year, he organised a very successful conference on Winning the Western Approaches - Unrestricted Submarine Warfare and the US Navy in Ireland 1917-1918.
