Very cool! You will of course be providing an OPML file of all feeds for inclusion in the Open Irish Directory? :)

[...] A while back I created feeds for every TD in the country. Well, now myself and the amazingRob Synnott have created a handy aggregator for all these details. It’s called Politics In Ireland. It updates twice a day. Maybe it’ll update more frequently the closer it gets to the election. I hope this compliments the already great politics sites that are out there. [...]

Ryan, unfortunately if that is done then it will probably only pick up the chatter on the publications that use the formal titles. Most blogs wouldn't stick in the TD name. What could be done though is add a filtering system to a feed aggregator that removes any mention of talk show hosts or civil war leaders or astronauts etc who have the same names as TDs. All you need to do is build an aggregator and a filtering plugin.

Good work, but would it be helpful to add "TD" to the search query? For example the search for "John Gormley" throws up more results for a Canadian talk radio host than for the Green TD.

Shane McEntee (FG) won the seat in the 2005 by-election - you have a feed for him.

Odd, Bruton is still down on the Oireachtas website. Who got his seat?

Good work - Some of them through up some interesting things - Although no longer a TD, John Brutons feed throws up a few blogs on the Bilderburg grouping.
