Here's what An Caorthann set out to be:
An Caorthann (The Rowan Tree) is a quarterly magazine of information and discussion for the Irish Green Party / Comhaontas Glas and the wider green and alternative movement. We are trying to work towards a green response to contemporary events, issues and ideas, to encourage discussion and debate among Greens and to develop long-range thinking about aims and actions on the basis of an informed and critical awareness of ourselves and our natural and social environment. We are doing this on the basis of a non-dogmatic definition of "green", wide enough to cover anything which may contribute to the greening of Irish society: a better definition can only come from the interaction of ideas and practices within the movement. Instead of being "the voice of the Greens", we aim to provide a space for "the voices of the Greens", welcoming involvement from any quarter of the green movement and from sympathetic outsiders.
And here are the results:
