When blather.net was spawned back in 1997, Dave Walsh, Damien DeBarra and Barry Kavanagh exhumed the lofty manifesto of the original Blather, founded in 1934 by Flann OBrien. It would also be a publication of the gutter achieving entirely new levels in everything which is contemptible, despicable and unspeakable in contemporary journalism. Blather.net would have no principles, no honour, no shame. It would support the fostering of graft and corruption in public life, the encouragement of humbug and hysteria, and the glorification of greed and gombeenism. Over ten years later comes A Load of Blather, gathering together the best of the best reports on paranormal events, superstitions, mysterious happenings, conspiracy theories, the hordes of rampaging kangaroos in the Dublin hills, and the previously untold story of General Michael Collins' forays into outer space. Look no further - this is Blather.
