Gaeltacht Minister urged to visit stranded Gaoth Dobhair family

first_imgThe Minister of State for the Gaeltacht is being called upon to visit flood-hit families in Gaoth Dobhair who lost a bridge to their homes.The extended O Duibhir families from Bunbeg have been relying on a temporary footbridge to access their houses after their original bridge was swept away by the River Clady in August.But the replacement bridge is so unsuitable that an ambulance was unable to access the home of one ill family member, who is 79 years old, and paramedics were forced to wheel him to the road. Mr O Duibhir at the ambulance.Local councillor Michael Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig is now calling on the Gaeltacht Minister of State, Sean Kyne TD, to visit the O Duibir homes when he visits the area next week.“It is very difficult for the families to get on with their lives when they cannot get their bridge rebuilt. The council’s response is that this is a private bridge, but if you look at LIS roads, they are all private roads funded through the State. So why wouldn’t this bridge be funded?,” Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig said.“Myself and Pat the Cope Gallagher TD have been fighting for these families. As a councillor I appreciate that this is a private bridge, but at the same time the State should look after the wellbeing of all its citizens.”The homes of three families in Gweedore including a wheelchair bound resident who are trapped after flooding demolished the bridge into their homes. (North West Newspix)Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig said he hopes that Mr Kyne TD could find a way of identifying funding sources if he saw the reality of the family’s circumstances. He said: “The Minister will be in Gaoth Dobhair on the 26th, a half a mile from where the families live, and I have invited him to meet the family and see how the situation affects them.“The family has been left in limbo. One man had to get the ambulance called twice since the bridge collapsed and every time he has to be carted from his house. This is not acceptable. It’s very difficult for families to get on with their lives, the oil lorry can’t even reach them.“Next week is a great opportunity for the Minister to meet the family and to help them.”  Gaeltacht Minister urged to visit stranded Gaoth Dobhair family was last modified: November 19th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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)last_img read more

Minister Shaw Urges Community Tourism Stakeholders to Embrace Airbnb

first_img Minister of Industry, Commerce, Agriculture and Fisheries, Hon. Audley Shaw, has called for the increased integration of Airbnb operations into community tourism offerings.He noted that the Airbnb concept is being embraced in places like Trench Town in St. Andrew, and “we want to see it accelerated” in order to expand offerings in the tourism sector and bring more visitors to Jamaica’s shores.Minister Shaw was speaking at the International Community Tourism Conference on Tuesday (November 13), at the Mona Visitors’ Lodge in St. Andrew, where he urged local stakeholders to “open up the doors of the tourism product for expansion”.Airbnb is an online marketplace and hospitality service, which is accessible via its websites and mobile apps. Members can use the service to arrange or offer lodging, primarily home stays, or tourism experiences.Airbnb hosts in Kingston earned approximately US$2.4 million in 2017.Mr. Shaw said that Airbnb should not be seen as some form of “inherent competitor to our community tourism,” but should instead be “integrated and personalised as a “Jamaican experience”.“Airbnb has an international platform. It already has a mechanism for information; embrace it, because that is a platform to reach the world, and to introduce and bring tourists into our communities,” he added.Minister Shaw further urged community tourism stakeholders to accept their role in ensuring that the industry continues to grow and strive.“When we open up the doors, we must understand that there is a mutuality of responsibility that we have. When the tourists come to our communities, we must collectively gather around them, and protect them,” he said.The four-day conference, which started on Monday (November 12), is organised by the International Institute of Peace through Tourism (IIPT) under the theme ‘Building Communities as Businesses’.It includes exploring community tourism case studies from Jamaica and the wider Caribbean, and countries in Africa.Several outstanding entities and persons will be honoured during the event.
