In this paper we describe our system, experiments and re- sults from our participation in the Blog Track at TREC 2008. Dublin City University participated in the adhoc re- trieval, opinion finding and polarised opinion finding tasks. For opinion finding, we used a fusion of approaches based on lexicon features, surface features and syntactic features. Our experiments evaluated the relative usefulness of each of the feature sets and achieved a significant improvement on the baseline.
