TASC Lunchtime Seminar: Seamus Dooley, 'The media in crisis: why we should be worried'.

16 March 2017 - 12:45 PM to 02:15 PM


On Thursday 16th March, Seamus Dooley, National Union of Journalists, delivered a talk entitled: 'The media in crisis: why we should be worried'.

With the growth of social media threatening mainstream quality journalism on one hand, the growing threat of false news and the power of media barons, there is a real crisis. Good journalism is essential to ensure a working democracy and Seamus is an authoritative voice on behalf of Irish journalists (and indeed in the UK too where is he acting NUJ General Secretary).

The seminar will take place in TASC's offices in Castleriver House, 14-15 Parliament Street, Dublin 2. (Entrance on Essex Street East).

The event, which is free of charge, will run from 12.45 tea/coffee/ with the seminar starting at 13.00 and ending at 14.15 sharp.

The idea of the lunchtime seminars is that you are free to bring your own 'brown bag' lunch to eat. Complimentary tea and coffee will be available.
