I deliver trainings about cyberbullying to parents through schools and libraries. I know it's an issue of great concern to parents. Remember that all of the social networks have Safety Centres in their Help section, where you can access lots of information about keeping your kids safe online. One of the critical elements to combatting cyberbullying is peer leadership among young people. Here's a great example from 13-year-old Limerick filmmaker/vlogger Luke Culhane – a new video highlighting the need to ‪#‎CreateNoHate‬ on social media in a stand against ‪#‎cyberbullying‬

Jonah Lomu was one of my favourite rugby players and one of the greatest talents ever to grace a rugby pitch. His blend of pace, power and size was unrivalled in the game.

Here are some of his greatest international tries from 1995 to 2002. #RIPJonah   #JonahLomu

The film 'Room' wins People’s Choice Prize at the Toronto Film Festival.  Well done to Irish director @lennyabrahamson! #TIFF2015   #Toronto   #filmmaking  
I had hoped to avoid anything more than a passing mention of awards season for a month or so, but when news came in that Lenny Abrahamson's Room had won the People's Choice Prize at the Toronto Film Festival we were forced to abandon that resolution. That award — voted for by, yes, the “people” ...

It can be difficult to pull off a crowdfunding campaign successfully and today, I interview Ruth of The Stormy Teacup. With 9 days left to g

I have had the pleasure of working with Gerry Duffy on video productions on several occasions. He is an outstanding Video Producer. He is always incredibly organised which ensures that everything runs smoothly and every eventuality pre-empted. He is very calm on the video shoot, which puts everyone at ease, especially those in front of the camera. So whether you need a once-in-a-lifetime event - e.g. your wedding - filmed, or a corporate video with special effects like greenscreen, you’ll be putting the video in safe hands by hiring Gerry!
