I made a decision in setting up this blog that all posts about Irish politics or related matters would be made to another blog, the "Jaded Isle" that my friends have heard about for so long.
It is now online at http://jadedisle.ie
The wry meaning behind the name should hopefully be clear (a play on Emerald Isle).
The reasoning behind a separate blog for this material is not quite so obvious.
Essentially, the reasons are three-fold:
- to collect all political material in one place that it might eventually have some identity and "brand recognition" in and of itself
- to isolate the vitriol from the rest of the content here
- that others might contribute to the site, which would be rather strange on a site bearing my name directly.
