The Best of the Irish Blogs

Richard Waghorne runs a blog in Dublin called Sicilian Notes. It occurred to me yesterday that his was the only Irish blog I ever looked at, so I asked to recommend a few more. Here are his recommendations...

Atlantic Blog
Disillusioned Lefty
Karole Cuddihy, 'Fallibilist'
IE Politics Reality Check
Dot IE
Irish Eagle
Slugger O'Toole (definitive on Northern Ireland)
Damien Mulley (not so political, but a great blog and a real centre of gravity online in Ireland)
Gavin Sheridan (less political than before, but widely read and excellent)
Eamonn Fitzgerald (Irish, but often writes from abroad)

If there are others you know of, and would like to recommend, please use the Comments section.

Ah I was wondering why I was getting traffic from this part of the world. Thanks for the link.

Though they may not be your cup of tea, you ought to check out Bernie Goldbach and Tom Raftery.

http://backseatdrivers.blogspot.com/ would be another good Irish blog but on the liberal side of the spectrum and there's always IrishElection.com

but on the liberal side of the spectrum

Didn't some tosser recently label Dick O'Brien as "shrill and derivative"? I cannot for the life of me remember at this moment just who that was...

You seem to have missed the award winning "Irish Blogger of the year" Twenty Major. A must read if you want cutting edge grass root politics

Why, he's a British blogger, surely. After all, didn't Worstall put him in his book?

that's a very strange, political-loaded map of ireland you've used there, iain

a smaller blog , and more sensible than the title would suggest the Unionist ' we perish if we yield '
is always worth a look.

Try "The Dreaming Armadillo" - http://thelonglane.blogspot.com - although based in London it regularly covers Irish issues.

Dossing Times. Might as well shamelessly plug myself ass no one else win. :)

But on another note Irish Election is a good one to follow for the election.

A very odd map. It appears to be the European parliament constituencies, but seven years out of date.

How rather odd of you to choose a map of Ireland showing the European parliament constituencies.

Political to the bone I guess Iain!
