Irish Corruption blog

As no doubt most seeing this post already know, Gavin Sheridan of Gavin's blog has started a new weblog, Irish Corruption to document coverage of scandals in the Republic.

Both the Irish Times and Phoenix magazine charge for access to their archives (and Vincent Browne's Village magazine has only a minimal Web presence) so this effort is very much welcome within the Irish blogosphere (such as it is). I would wish him well, and recommend others to blogroll this important initiative.

p.s. Eamonn Fitzgerald has been posting an interesting transcript of an interview with Gavin about this project. Catch it here, here and here.

About me

  • An early-thirties male Irish technologist living and working in Dublin, I'm a former (recovering) member of both Fianna Fáil and the Roman Catholic Church.

    I'm not a member of any political party these days, but my opinions can be broadly categorised as 'lefty' and republican. I am also a former member of the Irish Defence Forces.

    Please feel free to check out the FI Fie Foe Fum group blog, where I was once a regular contributor, and the Cedar Lounge Revolution, where I can usually be found in the comments.

    (This blog and its contents reflect only my own personal opinions as a private citizen, and not those of any other person or organisation.)
