This blog is a new version of A Note from the Next Door Neighbours, the column Andy Pollak wrote every month for seven years (2006-2013) during his final period as director of the Centre for Cross Border Studies in Armagh. Now that he is a free agent, with no managerial or financial accountability to anybody but himself, he hopes this blog will be able to range more widely, while remaining faithful to his core belief in good neighbourliness as the first essential step towards people of all political and cultural traditions on the island of Ireland becoming partners and friends.

    Dear Andy,
    I just discovered your blog and must say: BRAVO !! It is so good to see your intellectual voice continuing – we need more “CBC guns for hire” – also in Continental Europe!!!
