The Sea-Fisheries Protection Authority (SFPA), the independent regulator for the sea-fishing and seafood sectors, is hosting a special Fishing Industry Information Breakfast for fishermen, processors and shellfish producers based in the south west areas on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 as part of a series of information events being held around the country over the coming months. Inspection requirements, landing obligations and technical measures are among the many topics that will be covered at the event, which is free to attend.

The SFPA will be joined by representatives from a wide range of organisations including: the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine; Air Corps; BIM; FSAI; Marine Institute; Naval Service; Inland Fisheries Ireland; National Parks and Wildlife Service and the Workplace Relations Commission amongst others. They will provide information and help with queries on the latest developments and regulations as well as day-to-day matters relating to the industry including quota management, food safety and trade.

The SFPA Information Breakfast is taking place on Wednesday, October 12, 2016 from 8am to 12pm at the Maritime Hotel in Bantry. Places are limited and anyone interested in attending is asked to register by emailing events@sfpa.ie by Friday, October 7, 2016.

These events are a one-stop opportunity for fishermen, processors and producers to learn more about these changes and have their queries on these or other important issues relating to the industry answered personally by experts from the relevant organisations.”

The Cast of Harold Pinter’s ‘No Man’s Land’ are on their way to the All-Ireland finals, having won 26 awards, including five best of Festivals, at the Amateur Drama League of Ireland annual three act festivals. The play ‘No Man’s Land, by Harold Pinter, the Nobel Prize Winning Author is directed by Jennifer Williams.

One last opportunity to view this multi award winning play at Skibbereen Town Hall, on Saturday 14th of April, before the finals.

Having met by chance in a pub, two aging writers continue a long night of drinking and reminiscing in a stately London home. As the night wears on, their conversation wanders through memories long forgotten or invented. Is their encounter real or a delusion? Are they strangers or do they share a past history? When unexpected guests intrude upon an increasingly surreal evening, the atmosphere quickly changes from friendly to threatening, and the encounter becomes a game of survival.

Tickets may be purchased at the door or in advance by emailing schulldramagroup@gmail.com
