first_imgWell-known TV Presenter Joe Mahon will be on hand on Thursday morning next at the launch of the new Donegal Coastal Experience WebApp in Letterkenny Public Service Centre.Joe Mahon is best known for his incredibly successful and long-running television series, Lesser Spotted Journeys.Leas Chathaoirleach of Donegal County Council Cllr. Noel Jordan believes that Joe Mahon is the ideal person to have on hand on Thursday morning to launch what is essentially a new way of telling a yarn, sharing stories and capturing the value of intangible cultural heritage from along our stunning coastline. He said “This WebApp story map is something that will appeal to many people not just those visiting our coastline but for local people who want to share photos and the oral history of their own local communities and I am delighted that Joe Mahon will be there on Thursday morning as we launch this app.“One of the most appealing aspects of social media is its ability to allow us to share special moments with a wider audience including our circle of family and friends. This WebApp has been specially designed to allow the user to upload this information using mapping technology and this information will then be used by our own Planning Team to allow them to capture and manage this data which would otherwise be impossible to capture.”This innovative WebApp is being launched by Donegal County Council and has been developed by the in-house GIS Team as part of the Interreg Europe funded Hericoast project which aims to improve the management and preservation of coastal heritage and landscapes.Project Officer Aideen Quinn said some aspects of our coastal heritage are intangible. She added “For example you could meet someone such as a guide at a specific location and enjoy their stories – this information cannot be readily put on paper but could be uploaded on the App via a photograph or comment and that would engage a wider audience in sharing the experience as well as provide us with meaningful information that could help inform best practice in terms of managing and preserving our unique coastal heritage and landscapes”.The WebApp is does not need to be downloaded which means it will not take up memory on a device.It will work on any device or platform including Android, Windows and Apple.It will not go out of date as it is accessible at all times through the website and designed to be promoted on social media. The WebApp will be available at http://arcg.is/2qlVZZH or on the Councils website at www.donegalcoco.ie .• The Hericoast Project is funded through Interreg Europe where the Council will examine on an international learning platform and through the experiences of the partner countries, informed and innovative measures to manage the cultural, environmental, built and natural landscape along the coast of Donegal.• Claire Mc Callan, Conservation Architect and Alana Green, Executive Planner are joint project managers. • Further information on the project can be obtained at www.interregeurope/hericoast/.Well-known TV presenter Joe to launch Donegal Coastal Experience App was last modified: January 23rd, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Donegal Coastal Experiencejoe mahonWeblast_img read more

Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “I’ve known him since 2005 when he was coming out of Alabama,” Wilson added. “He knows that we’re going to win, he knows that we have the type of players in the locker room that can help him be successful as well and he brings something to the table as far as helping us on the offensive side of the ball.”That winning culture is something that Wilson sees as a direct factor in the team’s recent acquisitions.“A lot of the guys that are coming in now, they see those 35 wins over three years and that’s enticing to a lot of players,” Wilson said. “At the end of the day, players just want to win.”Another factor in that has been general manager Steve Keim, who Wilson called a top-3 GM in the NFL.Cardinals fans were quick to be reminded of Wilson’s presence around the team back in January, when the man they call A-Dub was the first person to get to Larry Fitzgerald and celebrate after the receiver’s game-winning touchdown against the Green Bay Packers.
