EIRCOM: 500 DONEGAL HOMES STILL WITHOUT SERVICE

first_imgEircom says that fault levels in Donegal remain high as a result of the continued adverse weather conditions.There are currently over 500 customers without service, and this number could rise as the volume of reported faults continues to increase due to the unprecedented level of sustained severe weather during the past three weeks. Specifically, damage in the region has been caused by hurricane force high winds, lightning storms and flooding. Customers are encouraged to report faults as soon as possible. Due to exceptionally high fault volumes in Donegal it could to be three to four days before all existing faults across the county are repaired.The worst affected areas include coastal areas of the Southeast (Carlow, Kilkenny, Waterford, Wexford), the South and Southwest (Cork, Kerry, Limerick, Clare), the West and Northwest (Galway, Mayo, Sligo, Roscommon, Donegal).The sustained severe weather over the past two weeks has been unprecedented. During the past fortnight, eircom has restored service to more than 17,000 customers. However, they have received 9,000 new fault reports this past week and 22,000 faults in the past 14 days.A spokesman said: “Eircom would like to reassure all customers who are currently experiencing a disruption to their telephone and broadband service that we are working as hard as possible to restore service. “All available technicians have been diverted onto fault repairs.”eircom currently has 700 repair crews deployed throughout the country, with a plan to mobilise staff from the eastern half of the country to the west to assist with the worst impacted areas.All available technicians with repair skills have been mobilised to work on individual fault localisation and repair, as well as crews to deal with specific structural damage (cabling and poling).Customers should log faults on the “Log a Fault” section of our website (www.eircom.ie) or through our automated customer service line 1901.

In Pictures: Tunnel Tigers memorial a ‘fitting tribute’ to Donegal workers

first_imgAn impressive memorial was unveiled this week in honour of the legendary Donegal Tunnel Tigers who died overseas.Situated in the grounds of St. Crona’s Church Dungloe, the bespoke monument has been described as a fitting tribute to the men who were killed as a result of their work on tunnel projects in the UK and further afield.The names of 77 men feature on the facade. The structure is dedicated to those men who died in work accidents and to the hundreds, if not thousands, more who died of tunnelling-related illnesses. Donegal Tunnel Tigers memorial in Dungloe.

What we’ve got ties it all together.“It’s very important to people who worked in the mines and I think it will bring people to Dungloe.“We are very grateful to the people and to the chapel for offering sites. It is in an ideal place for access and parking. I was just down recently and there were 15 people saying the rosary around it.“People came from America, Scotland and England to the unveiling. It means a lot to a lot of people.”Unveiling of Donegal Tunnel Tigers memorial in Dungloe.

After Effects 101: Wiggle Expression

first_imgGet started with AE expressions! Wiggle is one of the fundamental AE expressions and can be used to quickly add random movement to your After Effects animations.After Effects expressions can be intimidating. After all, we’re video editors and motion designers – not coders. In reality though, many AE expressions can be broken down simply. Applying expressions in your AE project can add some really dynamic features (random motion, auto animating to sound, etc), so it’s worthwhile to give them a shot. You can also use expressions to speed up your workflow, sparing you from having to keyframe all the animation in your project. So where do you start? With wiggle.Wiggle is one of the more versatile After Effects expressions. You can apply it to a layer in your AE project to add movement to position, rotation and scale. By modifying the parameters in the expression you can set limits on the magnitude and frequency of the animation.The video tutorial below, by motion designer Jens Uttikal, provides a nice overall tutorial on the capabilities of Wiggle and how to integrate it into your After Effects project. It’s a worthwhile 6 minute viewing for all AE users.If you’d rather read than watch, check out our previous article “Using Wiggle to Create Random Movement in Adobe After Effects” or this post which several wiggle expressions written out (copy and paste them into your project).Don’t be intimidated. Start with wiggle and give After Effects expressions a try. If have any questions or thoughts please leave them in the comments below!last_img read more
