McDowell versus Connolly…

It’s beginning to grip the Irish blogosphere, and throws up some serious new talent: Three Monkeys believes its all overblown; Balrog says McDowell must go; Dossing Times notes hypocritical contradictions in McDowell’s detractors; Mamam Poulet sees the Minister’s behaviour as treading on the rights of citizens to ask questions of government; Sarah is hopping mad with the Minister; Fiona believes it cuts both ways; and Gavin has transcribed a radio interview that might prove worthy of return in future. This Columbia Three story is not one that’s been told straight at any point in the past. The Minister has serious questions to answer. But he is not the only one.

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.
