In writing your letter, we ask you to keep in mind the following guidelines. These are the factors we consider when choosing which letters to publish.
1. Are the comments sincere and well argued?;
2. Are the points made succinctly and in logical order?;
3. All emotions and tones are welcome, including humour, anger, sadness, joy and the merely curious;
4. Letters that are personally abusive or (to our knowledge) inaccurate will not be published;
5. If your letter references an Irish Examiner article, please provide a link to that article. If hand-writing a letter, please include the headline and date of publication.
We have no minimum length, but it’s rare for us to publish a letter longer than 400 words.
We publish about 10 letters each day and aim to be a platform for as many different voices as possible. If we get a lot of letters from one individual in quick succession, we will not publish all, or possibly any, of these.
