New site opening tomorrow…

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.

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.
