This website is an ongoing effort to organise and filter the volume of allegations and reports concerning corruption coming out of Ireland. It was set up as a result of disenchantment with the failure of successive Irish governments to deal adequately with corruption.
Public Inquiry is an entirely pro bono project, receiving no funding whatever from any source, besides that of running it’s website – a cost met by it’s founders. It is operated by concerned citizens who receive no money for their effort, citizens who simply wish to create a valuable resource for the Irish public. We aim to foster debate and discourse both on and offline.
The people writing are not members of any politcal party, nor do they have any party affiliation. This website is not about political views or agendas, it is about understanding and discussing the corruption that appears to be pervasive in our society.
If you have any question in relation to the content, or have any information about an issue you are concerned about feel free to contact. However, there are some rules to emailing and commenting, to borrow from Dan Drezner:
The feedback policy is simple:
1) Every e-mail sent about the blog and every comment posted on the blog is read.
2) We won’t necessarily reply to every e-mail message or respond to every posted query.
3) We’re truly sorry for the non-responses.
4) Unless otherwise indicated, we will not attribute any quote from any email on the blog.
5) When it comes to the comments feature, remember that we control the horizontal and the vertical. Moderation is in
operation because of previous abuse of the feature. We will delete comments that we think are personally insulting, completely off-topic from the post, or so incoherent as to pass all understanding. Our space, our rules.
6) When you’re posting your comments, bear in mind that people are watching. Libel rules apply.
