Via Sadhbh:

‘A chairde,

‘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. I have shed many a tear since the news especially when reading this week’s comments. I really hope you can reform bigger and better and as many have already said in the last few days, fupp the begrudgers and the trolls!! I hope to see your next incarnation soon, you are badly needed.

‘Mile buíochas ó bhun mo chroí.

‘Beir Bua agus beannacht,

    I wasn’t expecting that guy’s so I suppose it’d be rude not to comment now, I forgot to mention all the gorgeous sunrise and sunset shots of Ireland. Wonderful. Thanks again guys and all the commentators esp soq. Go n-éirí go geal libh go léir.❤️ .
