So what's it all about?
We wish to tell the stories of the people, with a view to improving what that story might be.
Media typically answers to the old saying…
“ He Who Pays the Piper Calls the Tune ”
The result is that if you have wealth you are listened to, you have influence; otherwise your voice is not heard.
Most families don’t deal with media, and most don’t deal with politicians of any type; they chat among themselves, living life as best they can, and their story is never told.
Not everyone has either the time nor the ability to tell a story, we think we have some talent to do so, that is what we hope to do with CobhView and thefuture.ie
This site is run by Diarmaid Ó Cadhla (a former Council member in the Cobh Area) with the assistance of some volunteers – and it depends on the public to alert us to any particular question.
The editor has continued to be involved with Cobh since finishing as a Council member in 2019.
The area, and its people, are very much neglected and important issues face the community, not least of which are the efforts of Port of Cork Company to privatise the public’s Right of Way on Deepwater Quay / Five Foot Way.
Diarmaid is also editor of THE PEOPLE’S PAPER, published monthly, he is contactable here, more detail on Diarmaid can be seen here.
We hope you find it worthwhile, go raibh maith agaibh.
