Based at Power Tower in Dublin, the Paddy Power Blog is part of Paddy Power’s Online Sportsbook department. We bring you sports and betting news, insight and mischief. The Paddy Power Editorial team has won ‘Best Blog’ at the Social Buzz Awards in London (2012, 2013 and 2014), as well as ‘best gambling blog’ at the Football Blogging Awards in Manchester (2013 and 2014). 

On the blog we discuss hot topics, preview major events, praise those who deserve to be praised, take shots at sacred cows, and try not to take life too seriously. Also, we use a network of international mischief makers and tipsters, so you don’t just have to take our word on things.

Below is how to contact us, but if you’re going to give out, or if you have a betting-related issue, please direct your attention to our lovely customer services team.
