forth is an English language Irish Internet magazine focusing on Irish politics, culture and society. It was founded in October 2009 and claimed almost 40,000 readers as of 31 October 2009.[1]

Editors and contributors

forth is edited by Irish journalist Jason Walsh. Walsh has contributed to the Irish Times, the Irish Examiner, the Sunday Business Post, the Guardian, the Sunday Times, The Independent, the Christian Science Monitor, Magill, Village, Business and Finance, Wired, Mute, Rising East and the Dubliner.[2][3]

Contributors come from across the political spectrum and include journalists Lenny Antonelli and Brendan O'Neill, artist Daniel Jewesbury, curator Finbar Rosato free software activist Richard Stallman,[4] economist Stephen Kinsella, former Sinn Féin councillor Domhnall Ó Cobhthaigh, psychiatrist Stephen Ginn [1]. and professors Gerard Casey and Andrew Calcutt. The magazine has also republished several articles by Mark Ames.[2]

Politics

forth takes a partisan left-libertarian stance[5] on current affairs that has been described as "sometimes offbeat, often original" by Irish journalist Gerard Cunnigham[6] and quotes philosopher Gerard Casey saying it is "a welcome addition is Forth to the normally turgid world of Irish journalism" in its publicity material.[7] The magazine supports absolute free speech and has criticised the 'lynching' of Jan Moir, a stance that was noted by The Guardian and criticised by The Independent newspapers.[8][9] The magazine has also criticised Ireland's trade unions as timid and in decline[10][11] and argued, controversially, that Trinity College Dublin should be demolished,[12] prompting a response from Senator David Norris.[13]

Regular features

Alongside its traditional material, forth publishes series of correspondences on various subjects called 'Back and Forth'.
