    Will Emigrants come #HometoVote ? – I’m  in The Irish Times


    I definitely wasn’t expecting this. The Irish Times contacted me this week, they had read something on my blog. They asked if I would be interested in writing about why I said I was going home to vote in the General Election on February 26th.

    I wrote a piece and it appeared online and it also was printed in today’s issue of the newspaper. I can’t wait to get home to get my mitts on a copy.

    You can read the full feature, which also has contributions from other Irish emigrants here:

  • Thesis ready to hand in!

    thesisFinally, after a lot of work, my thesis is ready to hand in. I can’t say that it was hard work as I enjoyed doing it so much. I think the worse bit was transcribing all the interviews. With my title ‘The Roll out of Digital Audio Broadcasting in Ireland and Explorations into the Future Radio Landscape’, I think I’ve achieved what I wanted to.

    Once the analogue television switch over happens, this will leave a lot of frequencies open for the potential to terrestrially broadcast digitally using DAB or DAB+.

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people from within the radio industry in Ireland and the U.K. for their time and patience with all my questions. I’ve enjoyed getting to know you all and hopefully we shall chat again soon. Also thanks to my supervisors, see I told you I could do it!

    Anyway to the radio professionals I spoke to, thank you
