April Fool in Dundalk

It looks like the April Fool gambit of the blogger (formerly known as “Dermot Ahern”) pulled in Sunday Times reporter Derbhail McDonald. Mr (or Mrs, Miss, or Ms) El Paso has protected his/her annonymity from the start, and has created some major waves in the process. The blog has been known to ruffle feathers amongst organisations as diverse as Vodafone and Sinn Fein. Though it has started the stem of a conversation on the double edged nature of that kind of blogging sting.

  • Fair play to El Paso for this ingeniously engineered stunt!
    A blogger has taken on the mainstream media and resoundingly beaten them at their own game. So much for D. McDonald’s supposed scoop of “making Irish legal history”. David has efectively hammered Goliath in his own backyard!
