Better Fairer WayA national demonstration, organised by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions (ICTU), as part of its A Better, Fairer Way campaign, is taking place from 12:00 – 15:00 on Saturday, the 27th November in Dublin.

The ICTU invites everyone to join in making the people’s voice heard before Budget day in Ireland.

The IPSG applauds the ICTU’s decision to organise this demonstration and we urge our members to march in solidarity with the ICTU on November 27th.

IPSG Galway Film Fleadh Social

30th June 2010

The 2010 Galway Film Fleadh is nearly upon us!

With the many events, films and lashings of craic the Fleadh is a fun festival, yet during the ruaille buaille it can be easy to miss colleagues and friends too.

To remedy that the Guild is organising a social gathering for our members in McSwiggans Bar on Woodquay in Galway on Friday, 9th of July from 5pm onward. You’ll be within a roar of the Town Hall Theatre and on the route to the Omniplex or the Radisson Hotel.

Drop in and have a drink with your fellow Guild members, discuss the films you’ve been enjoying so far and meet new people. Feel free to bring along any actor or director chums – even producers (if they’ll take your call!).

Please either drop us a note to info (at) or RSVP us on our Facebook event page so we can get an indication of numbers. We don’t mind if it’s 5 or 50 of you there, but the pub would like an estimate.

Both Cliona Ruiseil and Maura McHugh from the Guild will be in situ to keep the conversation flowing, so don’t be afraid to turn up on your own either.

We hope to see you on Friday, 9th of July in McSwiggans.
