Large areas of Leitrim and Clare are under options licenses for onshore Shale Gas extraction using destructive and invasive technology, including hydraulic fracturing.

What is less well known is that large areas of Sligo, Leitrim and Roscommon are also licensed for Lignite extraction, which in simple terms is Coal Bed Methane/Coal Seam Gasification, with an even greater environmental and human health impact than shale gas extraction. read full story / add a comment

The 8th Wise Woman Weekend will take place in Leitrim on 25th - 27th May 2012. It has a new website, web address and email contact, reflecting the decision of the organisers to register as a charity. This move will ensure the survival of the annual gathering, which is a friendly festival that offers a profound experience for women of all ages. The event is run purely on volunteer energy and offers twelve diverse workshops from poetry to Energy Healing. Included in the programme is the Friday night opening ceremony and bring-and-share meal, the Saturday night Vegetarian Dinner and Social and the Sunday afternoon Elder Talk and Closing Bealtaine Ritual. The cost of the weekend pass has been reduced to €125. read full story / add a comment

Over 60 people attended a meeting of those opposed to proposed gas fracking in the north-west at the Mayflower in Drumshambo, Co. Leitrim on the night of July 12th. The major concerns raised at the meeting were organisational, with the –still nameless- group agreeing to the formation of a ‘core group which isn’t called a core group’.

Editor: Fracking is technology used for extracting natural gas trapped in rocks underground and is the process of forcing liquids and solids into the rock and forcing it to crack and thereby releasing the gas. Fracking liquids can cause pollution and the process of cracking the rock can significantly drop the water table and dry out huge areas.It has many other problems including exponential fall-off in production from year 1. read full story / add a comment

An Taisce and The Frackers. See the coast that area reaches over to. See the sketched pipe on map one. If it wasn't so sick it would be funny. Fracking + Shell + Renewable energy biznizz. One big clusterfuck coming to Drumshambo and parts surrounding.

In an article in the "Sunday Tribune" on 25th July 2010, Conor McMorrow wrote about the "parachute candidate". The question that can now be asked is what the future holds and what is going to happen to the Labour Party in Sligo/N Leitrim, now that the general public and the dogs in the street, are aware that all is not well within the local party.? what a way to start an election campaign.
What if anything is going to happen?
there are some interesting comments attached to the web link below.

"Unabashed leftist", Studs Terkel who was blacklisted during the McCarthy has died. Born in 1912 to Russian Jewish parents, he got the nickname Studs as a young man from the character Studs Lonigan, the protagonist of James T Farrell's trilogy of novels about an Irish-American youth from Chicago's south side ... Born in New York, Terkel became synonymous with Chicago, the city where he moved at age 10 and rarely left. His parents ran a boarding house and a men's hotel during the Great Depression, giving the young Terkel a steady diet of the struggles of ordinary people whose stories became his life's work" http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/breaking/2008/1101/...3.htm read full story / add a comment

In his latest, 14 Sept 2006, column for the New Statesman, John Pilger describes how the obvious becomes invisible in today's mainstream news agenda and such powerful denunciations of Israeli policy against the Palestinians and war criminals; Bush and Blair goes relatively unreported, e.g.
