What a farce - Minister Dempsey appropiated the Proclamation of 1916, Shackelton the explorer, JFK, Oscar Wilde et al to support his treatise that the sons of destiny are visionaries!
He managed to waffle his way talking about the past instead of 'managing the future' as the MacGill Summer School is titled.
The Joe Mulholland, the chair, allowed him to frantically scribble notes while numerous people posed their questions - then the Minister just waffled a few replies and kept harking back to 1916 - as if the people in 1916 would have sold out the West!
Various speakers from Rossport posed questions which he didn't answer and the local Donegal people were disgusted at him talking about the gret economy we have when there is so much unemployment in Donegal and heckling ensued - at which point the chair was going to put an end to the proceedings - then Pearse Doherty pointed out that there are exploration licenses pending Donegal which should be rethought in the face read full story / add a comment

Before coming to Ireland, I was warned not to have any romantic notions about the ‘Emerald Isle’. My Irish friend had travelled to my home country of Canada and was aware that many Canadians, especially those of Irish ancestry, have notions of Ireland that are based on commercial hype about leprechauns and beer and on the nostalgic laments of The Chieftains and the Irish Tenors about rolling hills and a glorious past. He cautioned that Ireland was changing and that the nation is manifesting the most unfortunate symptoms of economic success. I shrugged off the warning because my hopes for Ireland went much further than commercial stereotypes and, admittedly, because I really wanted to believe. After all, I endured eighteen years in a North American suburb. read full story / add a comment
donegal / environment / press release Friday March 05, 2004 13:19 by R
Below is a press release sent to 10 local media outlets, covering Donegal's 130,000+ population. The Tara issue, the Corrib gas field and many other assaults on Irish life continue to be ignored by the national media.

Local media is usually quite stale but very open to alternative news, so long as it has a local slant. Politicians are great users of local media but activists are often to busy lambasting Fox news to notice. You can localise easily by (a) keeping it simple (b) making it easy on the journo (email it etc) and vitally (c) puttting a local slant on it.... / this applies of all issues - war, environment etc. And remember, local elections around the corner - they don't like their names in the paper! read full story / add a comment
