‘As a long time reader of your site I’m so sorry to see you shut down. I loved the lost bikes, Things That Looked Like Ireland, John Moyne’s Limericks, bringing DOB to task and many more important issues, then I stepped back from online activity and I left the site for a while but returned in 2020.
‘Thanks for being a breath of fresh air and a bastion of truth and a contrast to the narrative. It was very reassuring to know I was not alone. A sad day for journalism indeed.
‘I’ve never commented on the site but learnt so much from all sides of many a debate, and cannot understand my sorry state since you posted it the other day.
