Politics in Ireland Competition – Win Barack Obama’s latest book

In an effort to make Politics in Ireland more useful I’m running a bloggers only competition to seek suggestions on how to improve the service. Sorry but this competition is only available to bloggers. Anyone that blogs ways to improve the site will be entered into a draw to win the new book from Barack Obama called The Audacity of Hope. (I listened to the audio version of his first book and was quite impressed.)

In case you are unaware of what Politics In Ireland does, it is an Irish Politics aggregator. It monitors the net for any blog posts or webpages that mention a TD’s name and then displays it on the main page as well as individual pages for the TD, their constituency and their party.


  1. Any and all suggestions on how to improve PoliticsInIreland.com will be entered into the draw.
  2. Suggestions are to be posted in public on your own blog. Suggestions via email or phone or carrier pigeon are most welcome but will not be entered into the draw.
  3. Every entrants name will be put into a hat (possibly a baseball hat I own) and the first one taken out is the winner.
  4. Post the link to your blog post in the comments here.
  5. If you don’t want the book I’ll send you a €15 euro voucher for Waterstones.
  6. Competition is open for two weeks.

    to get some ideas on e-paper before others have them written (Ken has already penned some) here are some:

    Well I’ve submitted some ideas above.
    On a side note do you think that you should remove “now censored by Google” considering that your post has re-appeared in Google?

  4. […] A while back Damien Mulley requested suggestions for his Politics In Ireland site and luckily enough for giving some suggestions I won the Barack Obama book “The Audacity Of Hope”. The book arrived today and it is a large, very stylish hardback which should be quite interesting considering the rumours surrounding Barack’s possible bid for the presidency. […]
