Well, what can I say? This is an Irish blog. And it isn’t just an Irish blog because it’s written by an Irish (at least I think the author’s an Irish), or because the subtitles say, “despatches from the west coast of Ireland”. Topics discussed ranged from Irish television, to Irish weather issues, and Irish politics. The content may get a bit too heavy at times (especially if you know nothing about Ireland), but the sardonic wit present in the writing improves the readability and makes you smirk in agreement to the writer’s jokes (IF you catch them, anyway).
Most of the entries are written in a slightly informal report style, albeit it can get a little stiff at times. The writing is very smooth, and the entries have almost perfect spelling. The layout of the blog is very clean and simple. There are few pictures included within the posts themselves, but there are links to various galleries exhibiting several scenic areas around Ireland.
Though the blog is updated on a regular basis, it is recommended that you do not attempt to read everything in one go. This is because as fluent as the entries can be, they tend to get really dense and dry after a while, even more so if you are not familiar with the subjects that the writer is writing about. Thus, unless you are from Ireland, or are extremely interested in the going-ons within the country, this blog might not work out very well for you.
