We’ve been putting the finishing touches to a new website, Britain and Ireland. It’s a direct collaboration with the excellent River Path Associates (who’ve designed, built and techno-bankrolled Slugger for the last three years) and the British Council, Ireland. It’s a monthly e-magazine which explores a different issue each month. Tomorrow we kick off (where else) at Croke Park, with a Sporting Lives special featuring: an interview with Niall Quinn; a think piece from Professor Mike Cronin of Boston College; and dispatches piece from Irish Times journalist Keith Duggan. And those guys from Langerland have something cooked.
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.
