MLA Attends Ordinary Meeting of Cooley Environmental and Health Group

The January meeting of Cooley Environmental and Health Group approved final plans for its winter workshop on "Organisation and Health" (see "Events" on this site) and dealt with one or two other ongoing matters.

Mr Dominic Bradley MLA (SDLP) attended a special meeting of Cooley Environmental and Health Group which took place on Sunday 9 January in The Strand, Omeath starting at 11.30 a.m. sharp.

He mentioned the name of Dr Seamus McAteer who raised the "cancer" issue in the 1970s. He also said that dealing with the effluent from diesel "laundering" was an expensive problem in his electoral area. Fly-tipping, and the dumping of dead animals around the area of Slieve Gullion were other problems he mentioned.

The meeting also discussed how much it cost the group to publish the report by Dr Dennis Pringle "Cancer Mortality and Morbidity in County Louth." Mr Bradley was the first person to purchase a copy of the report which is priced 5 or Stg. 3.50.

Speaking about the winter workshop "Organisation and Health" which the group has organised to take place in The Strand on Saturday 29 January starting at 2.00 p.m. Sean Crudden who is to facilitate the workshop said: "If everything goes according to plan the workshop should be worthwhile and diverting. Lets hope and pray that the weather is reasonable and that a winter bug or something does not strike to spoil our plans."

Discussion of a possible handball project was postponed. The matter, it was decided, would be dealt with informally until the next ordinary meeting of the group which was fixed for Sunday 13 February 2005 commencing at 11.30 a.m. sharp in The Strand, Omeath.

What happened to the rest of the island on that map. Even BBC stopped doin that years ago. What idiot is resposible for disfiguring the nation ?

Given that the cover uses a map which only includes the 'Free State' I think we have to assume that Cooley Environmental and Health Group are pro-partitionist.

This is a very serious subject, and Im not taking it lightly at all about what is happening in Cooley. But that cover will seriously annoy a lot of people on both sides of the border, its actually offensive. A shame that such a serious subject will end up annoying the wrong people. Poorly thought out presentation.

Barry, I am not sure what you are talking about - I think "our" Bradley is a different Bradley altogether.

You know, it might have something to do with the fact that scientific data by a particular researcher, university or whatever was available for 26 counties only? like if you had detailed census, they would not include the North as they have a different census and therefore different questions.

Nope Sean its the same one Im afraid.

As for someone telling me to grow up, all they had to was draw the rest of the amp. They didnt have to include census bloody figures from the north. Wasnt hard to do, and would avoid annoying people which that cover will surely do.

All the best with your work anyway Sean.

They could have used the standard two-colour solution .....

This would have acknowledged the de facto partition of jurisdictions while preserving the geographical integrity of the wee isle ....

A far more elegant solution than chopping off the north-eastern corner .....

Barry is not derailing the thread, he is probably keeping it going! Symbolism like maps, flags, etc. are genuinely very important to a lot of people.

But to get back to the original topic, how many copies of the report have been printed? did the producers have a distribution plan? How was the report financed?
The subject of the report is not a very cheerful one, so who are the target audience?
Health professionals? - if so are you aiming for national distribution among that group?
Policy makers? - generally these people receive free copies of reports on a continuous basis either from lobbyists who produce such reports, or they would get them free if the reports are financed by statutory bodies. So I'm wondering how well thought out this whole thing is. Is the target audience only being considered now?

Have they sold the second copy yet?

author by Seanpublication date Fri Jan 21, 2005 22:37author address author phone Report this post to the editors

I accept what you say about Mr Bradley, Barry. The fact that the six counties are cut off on the cover of the report does produce an effect like looking at someone with a gap in their front teeth but 'tis there now and it's done. As I already pointed out elsewhere on indymedia at the start of the new year there were approximately 100 copies printed in total. The report is strictly about cancer statistics and not about politics - certainly not about the politics of partition - although I admit the cover gives the impression that it is pregnant with some kind of political symbolism. The report is not specially aimed at doctors or the like. It could be read and understood by a reasonably well-schooled 16 year old, I think.

The url given below will lead you to the original article I wrote about Dr Pringle's report which should give you a clearer idea of what is involved.
