Psst.. Wanna buy a fort?

“Built in 1810 as a defence against a possible French invasion of Ireland.” If I had €500000 to spend.. I’d be seriously tempted.. better pictures here.. and the sales brochure [pdf] *ahem* Nice quote from the Belfast Telegraph article – “It would suit someone who likes old buildings and pieces of history, and who doesn’t mind doing a bit of work to the property.”

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
