Anthony McIntyre is a very welcome addition to the still tiny Irish political blogosphere. Whether you agree with his views or not, his work has brought respect from a range of opinion, albeit some of it grudging. It’s no coincidence that his strapline is a no doubt carefully chosen quote from Carl Jung: there is no coming to consciousness without pain. To which I might add, an appropriately Republican twist: long live Northern Ireland’s Dissenters… There’s just a couple of previously published articles on their at the moment, but hopefully he’ll take this mention as a nudge in the right direction! H/T Perci!!
