Of this footage of Sinn Féin MEP Liadh Ní Riada highlighting Irish Language derogation in the the European Parliament while on language strike in Brussels, Munkifisht writes:

…there’s something lovely and ironic about Irish (an official language of the EU since its founding for basic texts and an official language of the European Parliament since 2007 and is supposed to be translated) being unofficially unrecognised at the almost centenary celebration of the events which led to independence. I do not think any of the other 24 official languages would ever be treated with such a lack of respect or disregard.

(The official languages are Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Dutch, English, Estonian, Finnish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Irish, Italian, Latvian,   Lithuanian, Maltese, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish and Swedish)

So RTÉ’s mojocon are running this competition where you have to do a news-report using exclusively a mobile device.I thought I’d send something in, I call it: “The News, in Selfies.”.I strongly believe selfie sticks should be used by journalists. So in that regard, I’d be really interested in hearing what you think.

Be nice.
