John Harris had an excellent point in a review of Kerry Hudson?s book Lowborn – on her early life and how poverty characterised this. Yet Harris notes: If the book has a flaw, it is not in the telling of the story, but some aspects of the way Hudson and her experiences are framed. In […]A

I can?t entirely disagree with Seamus Mallon in the following: ?We made that mistake a hundred years ago when Northern Ireland was set up on the basis of a head count,? he says. ?A premature Border poll may deliver a narrow and completely unworkable majority for unity.? He adds that in the event of unity […]A

A bit of a mixed debate – far too many candidates and odd the cutaway ten or so minutes in to the one’s who didn’t make the final line-up. Good to hear so many people pushing back against Fine Gael and Fianna Fáil sounded on the defensive. Any thoughts?A

So, CLRers, it’s Friday, and you’re in the polling station marking your ballot paper. In this case, I’m going to use the Dublin European Parliament paper for the question I want to ask. There are four seats (three now and whoever is fourth will take their seat when Brexit is implemented). You’ve voted 1,2,3,4 for […]A

I?ve mixed feelings reading this from RTÉ where they discuss the results of a survey by Amárach for Young Social Innovators of 500 Generation Z?ers. That is people who arrived on the planet between 1995 and 2009. A publicity puff piece for YSI? Why yes, and hardly surprisingly it leads with he finding that: many […]A

…the potential for this character to be elected to the European Parliament. And for all is faux working class rhetoric see who is helping him out… …a senior executive of the conservative US thinktank the Middle East Forum…rightwing Canadian website Rebel Media…which said this week that it had paid for the Israeli-Australian commentator Avi Yemini […]A

Anyone catch the debate last night on RTÉ with the Ireland South candidates, and what did people make of it. A good report here, but here’s a question, how much – if at all – do such debates shape voters votes?A

Coveney claimed last week the CTA ?underpins the [Belfast] Good Friday Agreement in all its parts.?This is as exaggerated as as claims that Brexit undermines the agreement, but the fact so many people believe otherwise shows political momentum at work. That will continue as Brexit and the agreement inevitably throw up more complications the CTA […]A
