New blogger: an introduction

As I have joined the Slugger team I thought I should introduce myself. Otherwise, this post is of no particular account.

So, I am the latest addition to the Slugger team. My name is Jason Walsh and I am a freelance journalist based in Dublin. As a jobbing journalist of no particular account, I have contributed to the Irish Times, Irish Examiner, Daily Ireland, the Sunday Business Post, the Sunday Times, the Guardian, the CS Monitor (Boston) and the Independent of London, some of which has been tracked by journalisted.

I contribute regularly to spiked, Comment is Free and, in my spare time, edit my own little project called forth.

Areas that I plan on covering for Slugger include economic affairs and my contention that politics is collapsing into identity.
