Depth of investigation combined with the atmosphere of an informal meeting. More enjoyable than academic conferences - more productive than aimless small-talk.

Open communication in school:
If communication happens between members of different status groups: how does their position impinge on the communication?
How do hierarchies, formal and informal, influence communication?
How does the institutionalisation of education influence the communication that goes on in schools?
How does the professionalisation of education in schools influence communication?
How do different cultural backgrounds influence communication in schools?
What does all that mean for a concept of open communication? read full story / add a comment

Ever wanted to know more about the Children's Rights Referendum and amendment 42a? Read on to find out.

Pat & Sharon Mullen of Ballymote, Co. Sligo are in a dispute with the Electricity Supply Board, the E.S.B. want to put three 123 foot high electricity pylons on their land carrying 220,000 volt cables. Pat & Sharon are refusing E.S.B. staff entry to their land to install five overhead lines. On the grounds that they have the potential to have adverse effects on their health, their children and communities health and that of their livestock. Furthermore, they are concerned about the almost certain devaluation of four sites on their picturesque land by the erection of these massive 123 foothigh pylons and the subsequent impact on their children’s inheritance. They want the E.S.B. to place the power lines under ground. A simple request! read full story / add a comment

The Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign (IPSC) launched its new Northwest Branch at a public meeting in Sligo on Saturday 26 September in the Glasshouse Hotel.

Around 40 people attended the inaugural meeting of the Northwest IPSC. Addressing the meeting was the IPSC Boycott Officer Anne Kennedy, Fintan Lane of the Free Gaza Movement and the IPSC and Fiachra O Luain. Both Fiachra and Fintan were part of the Gaza Freedom Flotilla that was attacked on May 31 in International waters by Israel, resulting in the murder of nine pro-Palestinian activists and the wounding of many more, some of whom remain in a serious condition.
