HRinI Longlisted for the 2010 Irish Blog Awards

February 21, 2010

We were delighted yesterday to see that HRinI features seven times in the long-list nominations for the 2010 Irish Blog Awards, sponsored by all of these wonderful and generous people and the brain child of the unstoppable Damien Mulley. We would like to thank anyone who nominated us, and welcome people coming here for the first time from the nominations site. We hope you enjoy reading the blog. As a team we also want to congratulate Máiréad Enright for her post on the Hijab (nominated for best post) and a guest contributor Tom Hickey for his post on religious patronage, republicanism and Irish primary schools.

HRinI has been nominated in the following categories:

  1. Best Political/News Blog
  2. Best Group Blog
  3. Best Political Blog
  4. Best Specialist Blog
  5. Best Newcomer
  6. Best Blog Post: Guest Contribution—Hickey on Religious Patronage of Irish Primary Schools and Republicanism
  7. Best Blog Post: Primer on the Hijab Debate 2009 (by Máiréad Enright)

If you are visiting for the first time you might want to click here to see the first post on the blog, posted on 31 August 2009. Since then there have been 400 posts (incl. tens of guest posts catalogued here), over 50,000 visitors and some changes in the core contributors team as people’s ‘offline’ commitments overtook the time available to them to write for HRinI. The fundamental idea of the blog, however, remains the same: to provide a place where human rights lawyers with a connection to Ireland can reflect on the legal dimensions of human rights controversies in Ireland (primarily) or elsewhere.

Happy reading, and congratulations to all the nominees!

Addition: The Awards are seeking judges to convert the raw long-list into a short-list.  You can apply here.
