Irish Law Blogs – Blawging it up in Ireland

I’m not a fan of the term “blawg” which is used to refer to Law Blogs but still, I thought I’d make a list of ambulance chasers legal folk who blog in Ireland.

Well, the first crowd I noticed way back when were Fergal and Simon over on the Tuppenceworth Blog. Not soley a law blog as it has a great mix of other things too, but a great stop on your law blog travels and I think it was the first one I encountered when I first started looking at blogs.

Then there’s also the mostly dead blog of Fiona de Londras though she reappeared in a guest starring role over here recently. Come back Fiona!

Karole Cuddihy‘s blog is also near-dead as well, which is another great shame. Some great essays on that blog and maybe we’ll see a few more.

The blog for McGarr Solicitors is great and they’re involved in some very interesting cases. When I grow up I want to fight their good fights.

Irish Law Updates. Managed by Darius Whelan. Nice resource, as are many other online projects from Darius and UCC.

TJ McIntyre‘s IT Law in Ireland blog. A fantastic resource for anyone working in tech. Well worth subscribing to. TJ is also the chair of Digital Rights Ireland who are currently suing the Government for being too like Big Brother..

Two very good blogs that have been posting quality stuff quite a lot in recent times are the relatively new blog from Dr. Eoin O’Dell called Well worth checking out and adding to your Google Reader or Bloglines. The coverage of the Trocaire debacle was fantastic. I just realised I don’t have Eoin in my links. Apologies, Eoin. Might actually add an Irish Law Blogs section altogether. And by the power of Greyskull, I have.

The other blog I’m reading on a daily basis is from Daithí Mac Síthigh. Daithí is writing a PhD on the regulation of ‘Web media’. Quite a fan of Daithí’s writing and he gives great insights into media, tech and the web.

I’m in no doubt that I’m missing some very good blogs, so let me know which ones in the comments.

Lastly, I’d hate to have an argument with any of the above, they’d kick my ass. Not physically though, I could take them all, apart from O’Dell, we know about your ninja past Eoin. 🙂

    Hi Damien,

    Of course, I was deeply wounded that you had excluded me from your blogroll before now, and mortally offended that it took you so long to notice! But now that I’ve dusted myself down after missing that last ambulance, all I can say is: my ninja [UCC] past is pre-YouTube, so I can deny, deny, deny!!! (he, he, he …).

    More seriously: great blog, fantastic blogroll, thanks for the link.

    Thanks for the kind comment Damien; you are a trailblazer among Irish bloggers. Keep up the good work.
