Surely not coincidental that it's happening around the same time that he started receiving solicitors letters.

very sorry to read this

if there's anything that us ordinary joes can do (e.g. kickstarter or the donate link on the nwl hmepage, make use of the considerable legal expertise of Pinsters, etc.) perhaps it could be made known to us here or on NWL?

Depressing,seems to me he has been silenced.

Fair play to him for all the really excellent work,its a pity there aren't more like him.

Back to relying on the Irish mainstream journalism for :( our investigative reporting

If true then how much more disgusting can this shithole dump of a country get.
What a great voluntary service this man has done for the last few years.
It's been an informative,fascinating and funny read at times.

Very sad to hear this (depressing really).
I take solace in the fact that there will more NWLs.
I don't spend much time reading the old media - it is in run-off.

I'm always surprised the old media journalists don't do NWLs themselves.
But that would involve being able to do analysis and the courage to report based on it.

Thank god for people like NWL and the Internet for the freedom it gives them.
I'm sure the NWL model with evolve to handle the Irish oligarchs and their politicians.
I would be very happy to subscribe to that service.

That's a disaster for everybody.
I'm surprised - but probably shouldn't be.

Wonder if he has a book in him ... or would one of the broadsheets offer him a column even .....

Gutted. Truly gutted. Really sad.

Whoever NWL was, he/she made an enormous contribution to keeping us all informed.

Sure I suppose the journal.ie might be able to squeeze in a few hard hitting pieces in between articles about the '20 cutest pictures of cats on the internet' or appeals to find some teenager whos stayed out 5 minutes past her curfew. XX

I'm sure our hard hitting economists like Brian Lucey, Gurdiev, and that other bellend will stop twittering for a bit and pick up the slack.


Seriously though, a great contribution from a private citizen.

An entirely predictable and dismal outcome once the solicitors letters started arriving. How dare anyone attempt to shine some light onto the inner workings of our dark rainsoaked shithole.

The property bubble was Ireland's biggest ever fuckup, but it also presented a magnificent opportunity. It's unbelievable that the debts have all been foisted onto the gobshite taxpayers and the various Seans are still living it large in gated mansions, be they in Greenwich or Greystones.

Ireland is left a broken disgrace, and the 300,000 mostly young people who emigrated in the last four years are the living proof of it.

His blog is the best piece of journalism in this country. The country will be worse off in its absence.
