Máirtín Ó Muilleoir finds time to applaud the Brilliant Masses [all 8,762 of them] who score a little victory every day.. when they buy a copy of the Daily Ireland. Interestingly, he claims to have attracted seven-figure support from investors after a “second funding round” – How is that petition going?. He also claims that the Daily Ireland team’s response, to the countless brickbats, has been “to stay in the only gear they know — forward.”.. apart from that slight hiccup back in June.. obviously. Evidence of its success is “the growth in family notices since our first issue on February 1; the steady rise in advertising revenue (last week was the best to date); and the consolidation of our sales performance.” Not a levelling off or a decline, Mick! The Broom manages to keep a straight face.. just.
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.
