In support of the sovereignty of the people

Fianna TD and former rugby international Jim Glennon welcomes Trevor Ringland’s recent op ed on the need for healthy political competition between Unionists and Republicans. He quotes De Valera in the Seanad in 1939:

I always held that the people who differ from me held their views as tenaciously as I hold mine and that, if force is ruled out, I must try to meet them half way.” His words are today more relevant than ever.

We are reader supported. 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.
