Carlow Kilkenny #ge11 RTE roadtrip meetup on Friday afternoon

Apologies for the multiple posts on this one. We’ve finalised the venue now for the final leg of our roadtrip on Friday. If you’re anywhere near the Lyrath Estate Hotel in Kilkenny, myself and Peter will be there to hear what you’ve got to say. It’s another interesting one because Fianna Fail’s dissenter in chief, former Minister of State John McGuinness is standing. Not cut and dried that he will win.

In Mary White it has one of the few Green candidates with an albeit very slim chance. Labour and Fine Gael are also set to make a gain of one seat each.

And just so this is not just Internet folk talking to other Internet folk, if you are coming we also ask that you bring along an older friend or relative who does not ‘do’ Facebook, Twitter or blogs.

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.
