When checking the blog stats yesterday I noticed that we had had a sudden and unexplained influx of hits, well over 400. I therefore wondered how this had come about so I checked the detailed blog stats so I could ascertain where this sudden influx had originated. To my great suprise I found that it had come from a website called Rte, the Irish equivalent of the BBC! So it was to BUCF’s distinct amusement that we found ourselves being quoted alongside the BBC, The New York Times, The Daily Telegraph and the Times of London on the issue of the Irish rejecting the EU Lisbon Treaty. Maybe they got wind we left the Guild hey?! Anyway full details of our international claim to fame can be found here.
