Ferriter resigns from NLI board

One I missed - Professor Diarmaid Ferriter resigned at the end of last week from the board of the National Library of Ireland. Amongst reasons given for the departure are the funding cuts that will lead to the merger of the NLI and the National Archives of Ireland, and the constant "offensive and disingenuous doublespeak" from the Irish government.

The Irish Times has the story at www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/ireland/2012/0524/1224316609948.html
