Re: Canoe.ie missing all its pages?

It's a bit strange alright! I know Mick was the man who looked after the website when working in the office but I'm sure this is nothing to do with the site currently being empty of content. The entire site is still in Google Cache I have tried to re construct and down load the site from the cache b...

Re: River Alerts on Twitter ...again

Ken,

A simple way of doing it would be for people just to settle on a #hah tag like #avonmorelevel or what ever adn include it in an tweet relating to the rivers current level and anyone can pick it up that way.

All you would have to do is decide on a set of hash tags everyone would use.

Re: FW: Response to ICU statement

Wouldn't a better course of action have been to acknowledge fault on all sides, impose pay cuts if deemed appropriate, and allow everyone to focus on developing the sport of canoeing in Ireland?
