Independent councillor Mícheál Choilm Mac Giolla Easbuig has urged the government and Donegal County Council to review the level of funding for the Donegal Islands. Last August, €359,000 had been allocated to all the Donegal Islands, a reduction of 25% in funding levels to the year prior.Speaking to Donegal Daily after visiting residents on Gola Island, Mícheál Cholm said serious investment and support was needed for the islands before it was too late. “The islands are very important to the county and I have spent a lot of time and focus over the last five years on them,” he said“For me, they are very important and I hold them close to my heart and they have been neglected by successive governments and councils in Donegal, which isn’t right or fair to the people who spend their lives there.“And the vast majority of our councillors don’t bother with the islands because they see it as politically irrelevant, that’s the truth of the matter.”Cllr Mícheál Choilm on Gola Island on Sunday“It is about treating people equally right across Donegal and those islands have a massive influence on our culture and history. “Walking through Gola (Island) on Sunday you could see clearly the lack of investment and not just on the infrastructure but into the people themselves who have been neglected for generations.“But what excites me now is the new group of young people that are starting a return to the island and see themselves, just like their ancestors before them, as islanders.“So, the powers at be, need to be supporting these young people at every opportunity and, we as a council and as a state, need to be doing far more than is being done at present.”Urgent funding required for ‘politically irrelevant’ Donegal Islands – Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig was last modified: March 25th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:gola island
13 January 2005Citizen reporting has taken off in South Africa with the launch of reporter.co.za – the first website in the country to allow ordinary people to write the news as they see it.With the slogan “for the people, by the people”, reporter.co.za has already signed up some 800 contributors of all ages, races and occupations to write for the site, which produced its first edition on Monday.According to online encyclopedia Wikipedia, citizen journalism allows ordinary people to “play an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analysing and disseminating news and information.“The intent of this participation is to provide independent, reliable, accurate, wide-ranging and relevant information that a democracy requires.”Citizen journalism also allows people to provide their own footage of events, taken with their camera or camera phone. The BBC has eyewitness photos, taken with cellphones, of the London bombings in July last year and the 2004 tsunami in Asia. In South Africa earlier this year, a schoolchild used his cellphone in class to capture an attack on his teacher by another pupil.Reporter.co.za has been made possible by both the digital revolution and South Africa’s economic boom, which have brought the internet, cellphones and digital cameras to millions of ordinary people. In South Africa, one in 12 people have access to the internet and over 18-million have cellphones. In Africa as a whole, there are 82-million cellphone users, according to World Wide Worx and Vodafone.Vincent Maher, director of the New Media Lab at Rhodes University’s School of Journalism and Media Studies, describes the website as “the most progressive move by a South African media company in the past two years”.Produced by Johnnic Communications, Reporter.co.za is modelled on the Korean website ohmynews.com, which has over 39 000 grassroots reporters covering news, leisure and sport.“The newsroom with 20 journalists, who are all skilled in different areas, will mentor and assist the reporter, before we publish,” Juliette Saunders, editor of reporter.co.za, told the Mail & Guardian. “The public will tell us what the news is.“On reporter.co.za people can do what they want,” Saunders added. “We don’t have any control over the product. And if people start sending in stories about what happened on their street corner, that would be fabulous.“If you have a passionate interest in baseball, but there is not one newspaper that wants to publish your story, we are the platform,” Saunders said. “I am not afraid that no one will read those stories because people won’t write stories to bore other people.”Reporter.co.za is a platform for any story written by anyone, as long as they get the facts right. To ensure credibility, the 20 professional journalists both check facts and train the amateurs in newsroom essentials.The reporters are paid a nominal fee for their work, starting from R25. If the story makes it into Johnnic’s conventional publications, which include the Sunday Times, Sowetan, Sunday World and Daily Dispatch, professional rates are paid.“Today I might be reporting about a crime that happened across the street, and tomorrow about a car accident. I’ll report about everything that is newsworthy,” Dolpy Rakgoale (27), a security officer working in downtown Johannesburg, told the Mail & Guardian.“I have been waiting for such a thing to happen since I was young. I always wanted to be a reporter,” Rakgoale said. “I like investigating things, and an investigative story will one day make me famous.”SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo material

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say West Ham boss Pellegrini on Brighton draw: Absolute frustrationby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveWest Ham boss Manuel Pellegrini admitted frustration after their 2-2 draw with Brighton.The Irons came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 thanks to Marko Arnautovic’s brace.Pellegrini said, “I’m absolutely frustrated. “The most important way that Brighton scores is from set pieces, they had seven goals form corners, and we allowed them to score two goals this way. I don’t remember any other chances for them, but we didn’t create in the first 45 minutes.”
