DCAL and Nationalist Culture

Sinn Fein’s Barry McElduff has demanded that DCAL (Dept. Culture, Arts and Leisure) step in to work with the Irish government to purchase important historical items and artefacts relating to the Easter Rising and Tan War soon to be auctioned. He points to the setting aside of thousands of pounds by the then DCAL Minister, Michael McGimpsey, for the British Queen’s Jubilee celebrations, and calls for the Department to show awareness and respect for “Irish nationalist consciousness” through acting on his demand.

Donate to keep Slugger lit!

For over 20 years, Slugger has been an independent place for debate and new ideas. We have published over 40,000 posts and over one and a half million comments on the site. Each month we have over 70,000 readers. All this we have accomplished with only volunteers we have never had any paid staff.

Slugger does not receive any funding, and we respect our readers, so we will never run intrusive ads or sponsored posts. Instead, we are reader-supported. Help us keep Slugger independent by becoming a friend of Slugger.

While we run a tight ship and no one gets paid to write, we need money to help us cover our costs.

If you like what we do, we are asking you to consider giving a monthly donation of any amount, or you can give a one-off donation. Any amount is appreciated.
