I’ve been remiss, I know, in not writing more about the Free State election. The major reason for this is that I’m thoroughly browned off hearing about Bertiegate and stamp duty, which may be preoccupying the O’Reilly press but are of relatively little interest to me. There will be a few more posts, I promise, over the next couple of weeks.
Meanwhile, as an aficionado of trenchant leftist writing, I’m pleased to see that Socialist Democracy have relaunched their election blog. Their writing style may be a bit dour for some tastes, but the blog is actually a little bit lighter than the main SD site. Anyway, it may appeal to the many people who find this blog too flippant.
And of course, more detailed ongoing coverage at the always readable Cedar Lounge. And allow me to make an appeal here – there aren’t many Irish left blogs, but if I’m missing any please let me know in the comments box.
