Sunderland Football Club seeks bloggers

Sunderland Football club is looking for Sunderland fans in Ireland to become resident bloggers here on

The interest in Sunderland from Ireland has escalated in recent months, for obvious reasons.

Chairman Niall Quinn heads a consortium of predominantly Irish businessmen, Roy Keane, from Cork, is the club's manager and his squad features many Irish players.

Everyday Sunderland is on TV, radio and in the papers in Ireland.

Safc has had a stream of emails in recent weeks - from Dublin to Donegal - from fans wanting to know how they can set up an official Irish branch of the Sunderland Supporters' Association. The interest is huge.

To help with this initiative, safc wants some more blogging. Applications to safc
