the Irish for rights

Would you recognise the signs of elder abuse? Attend a free Age Action workshop this Spring. | Age Action Ireland

Age Action is organising a series of workshops for the public in the coming weeks to help raise awareness about elder abuse.

The workshops will take place between March 28 and April 8 at venues in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Athy, Co. Kildare.  They aim to raise awareness about what elder abuse is, the warning signs of abuse, the supports available if a person is being abused, and how to access them.

The workshops, which are funded by the HSE, will take place as follows:

Dublin: Wynn’s Hotel, Lower Abbey Street, Dublin 1,  Monday, March 28 (9.45am to 12 noon);

Athy: Carlton Abbey Hotel, Athy, Friday, April 1 (1.45pm to 4pm);

Galway: Croi na Gaillimhe Resource Centre, Mills Street, Galway, Monday, April 4 (9.15am to 11.30am);

Cork: Imperial Hotel, South Mall, Cork, Friday, April 8 (1.45pm to 4pm).

If you are interested in attending any of the workshops, or are part of a group that might benefit from attending one, please contact us to register.  Pre-registration is necessary as each workshop is limited to 40 people.

To register your place at one of the workshops: phone 01-4756989; email info@ageaction.ie or write to Age Action, 30/31 Lower Camden Street, Dublin 2. If writing or emailing, please state which venue you wish to attend.

Me in a hatHi there! Thanks for dropping by. I'm Eoin O'Dell, and this is my blog: Cearta.ie - the Irish for rights.

"Cearta" really is the Irish word for rights, so the title provides a good sense of the scope of this blog.

In general, I write here about private law, free speech, and cyber law; and, in particular, I write about Irish law and education policy.

Blogroll (or, really, a non-blogroll)

What I'd like for here is a simple widget that takes the list of feeds from my existing RSS reader and displays it here as a blogroll. Nothing fancy. I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

I had built a blogroll here on my Google Reader RSS subscriptions. Google Reader produced a line of html for each RSS subscription category, each of which I pasted here. So I had a list of my subscriptions as my blogroll, organised by category, which updated whenever I edited Google Reader. Easy peasy. However, with the sad and unnecessary demise of that product, so also went this blogroll. Please take a moment to mourn Google Reader. If there's an RSS reader which provides a line of html for the list of subscriptions, or for each RSS subscription category as Google Reader did, I'd happily use that. So, as I've already begged, I'd love a recommendation, if you have one.

Meanwhile, please bear with me until I find a new RSS+Blogroll solution
