A charter of rights for the island?

Next Tuesday we begin a two week online debate designed to explore the possibility of establishing an island-wide Charter of Rights, as suggested in the Belfast Agreement. And you don’t have to be coralled on the inside of an English castle to take part!

It’s jointly sponsored by University College Cork, University of Leeds and the British Council in Dublin. It straddles a real time seminar in Cork on Saturday 2nd October.

In the meantime, I’m in Dublin tomorrow, so blogging will be slow to moderate. On Monday we should have a short report on tomorrow night’s contest between Eammon McCann, Steven King and the Dublin audience!

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
