We launch Slugger O’Toole’s ‘live blogging’ of the 2005 election with a press panel event at the Institute of Governance at Queens next week. Rather than hear the politicians again, we’re bringing together some of Northern Ireland’s top political correspondents and commentators to give their views on what they see as the significant issues. Then we’ll take questions from the floor! I’ll be in the chair.The panel includes writers whose work appears regularly on Slugger: Dan McGinn (Ireland Political Editor PA), Chris Thornton (Belfast Telegraph), Brian Feeney (Irish News) and Alex Kane (The Newsletter).
If we can get the technology to work, we also hope to blog ‘live’ from the Institute. Afterwards, all are invited to a glass of wine and some nibbles and to hang around and chat for a while.
Institute of Governance, Public Policy and Social Research, Queens University, 63 University Road, Belfast.
Wednesday 27th April at 7.30pm
Admission is free, but seats are limited.
