It Only Encourages Them, is written by Paul Duggan. The name for the blog is taken from the old political quote “Don’t vote – it only encourages them”. This website is a sideways and humorous look at Irish current affairs and politics.
I am a socially liberal curmudgeon, rogue and Cork boy. Prone to the odd bouts of humour, I am the creator and author of Irish Shades of Grey. All profits from Irish Shades of Grey go to Console Ireland, the suicide prevention charity.
