What’s happening in the Hub?
Dingle Literary Festival takes place from 20-22 November; we’re delighted to be hosting this virtual festival, acting as the main control centre from which online workshops and events will be run, with authors and audience worldwide.
Now in its second year, Dingle Lit has a fantastic programme, with something for everyone, kicking off with a Peaky Blinders Cocktail Class on Thursday evening, followed by an eclectic mix of English and Irish events and workshops throughout the weekend, closing with Never Mind the B#ll*cks Here’s the Science: Professor Luke O’Neill, interviewed by Deanna O’Connor. Authors and speakers include Gabriel Byrne, Mary Kennedy, Abi Daré, Caelainn Hogan, John Creedon, Manchán Magan, Beo ar Éigean (with Dingle’s own Sinead Ní Uallacháin, Siún Ní Dhuinn and Áine Ní Bhreaslai), and Doireann Ní Ghríofa, to name a few. Workshops include How to Self-Publish Your Book with Siobhan Prendergast, Poetry workshop led by Eileen Sheehan and Nicholas McLachlan and Workshops and Flash Fiction Workshop with Splonk.

Míle buíochas do gach dalta a d’oibrigh ar an Seift Aeráide i rith Seachtain na hEolaíochta an tseachtain seo caite. Tá áthas orainn a rá go raibh bua ag an bhfoireann ó Mheánscoil Nua an Leith-Triúigh i gCaisleán Ghriaire sa chomórtas i gCiarraí agus tionscadal iontach ar siúl acu chun éiceapháirc a thógáil in aice na scoile – maith sibh! Buíochas freisin do na múinteoirí ó MSLT agus PCD don tacaíocht a thug siad do dhaltaí na leithinise chun a bheith páirteach ann. Beidh na postaeirí ar fáil ar www.corcadhuibhne2030.com
Many thanks to all of the students who took part in the Science Week Climate Hack last week. We’re delighted that the winning team for the Kerry Competition are from Meanscoil Nua an Leith-Triúigh, Castlegregory where they are working on a wonderful project to build an Eco Park near the school – well done! Thanks also to the MSLT and PCD teachers who gave such great support to their students to take part in this. The posters will be available to view on www.dinglepeninsula2030.com
The SEAI and MaREI hosted an online Armchair Chat as part of Science Week where some of the people involved in the Dingle Peninsula 2030 initiative had an opportunity to share our experiences to date with a broader audience. For those who would like to learn more about how this initiative evolved over the past three years, a recording of the webinar can be found on www.dinglepeninsula2030.com
A reminder that Level 5 restrictions means that the Dingle Hub is closed to all except those who are dependent on broadband connectivity to provide essential services for the duration of the Level 5 restrictions. We look forward to welcoming everyone back in the near future when possible and in the interim we will continue to work online to support our remote working and learning community on the Peninsula. It is in all our power to change the course of this virus so if we can double down, keep our distance and stay vigilant on sanitisation measures then hopefully we can all return to a more flexible level of restrictions in the near future.
Have you recently started working from here? Are you considering a part-time or permanent move to the Dingle Peninsula? Are you self-employed, remote working or a start-up business? Perhaps you are in a position within your business to bring remote working opportunities with you and build a team from here? We want to hear from you!! Please connect with us at firstname.lastname@example.org and help us build a vibrant, diverse and dynamic community and network. It’s not necessary to need a physical desk or office space (and indeed we can’t offer this for the duration of Level 5 restriction) in the hub to be part of this wider community. We’d also love you to connect with us on social media platforms – Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Facebook.
Fánaigí slán, sábháilte.
Stay safe and well everyone.
