I am a member of the National Unionists of Journalists in Dublin and edit a site on why Scotland can never be independent with their attitude to inward investors.
My Xmas present from my much loved ex (Brian that is) is membership of the Irish Writers Centre in Dublin. I can’t wait to get started on Nuala again this summer (2019).
The local newsdesk and sindicate will be launched officially after the Freelance Forum Workshop in Dublin in October.
I spent some years as an equestrian journalist for Scottish Equestrian, Welsh Breeds News and other equestrian magazines.
I wrote for the Northern Scot in Aberdeen but never got paid!
Publications I have written for:
- Welsh Breeds News
- Scottish and Northern Equestrian
- Native Pony magazine
- In Harness
- John o Groats Journal (Scotland)
- Euro Weekly news (Spain)
- The Lady
- Market Place – local magazine in Nerja, Spain
- Grapevine – local magazine in Competa, Spain
- New Panorama – local magazine in Nerja, Spain
I am currently researching the NC500 and the adverse impact on the local crofting communities and the local population. I am also lobbying Westminster to scrutinise the public service wastage in Scotland.
Being a keen environmentalist, and having a Post Graduate Diploma in Environmental Economics, Policy and Risk, I am very concerned about the proposed extension to the NC500 out to the precious Peatlands.
