At the start of the pandemic in March we took the decision to make online access to our news free of charge by taking down our paywall. At a time where accurate information about Covid-19 was vital to our community, this was the right decision – even though it meant a drop in our income. In order to help safeguard the future of our journalism, the time has now come to reinstate our paywall, However, rest assured that access to all Covid related news will still remain free.

To access all other news will require a subscription, as it did pre-pandemic. The good news is that for the whole of December we will be running a special discounted offer to get 3 months access for the price of one month. Thank you for supporting us during this incredibly challenging time.

We value our content and access to our full site is only available with a  subscription. Your subscription entitles you to 7-day-a-week access to our website, plus a full digital copy of that week’s paper to read on your pc/mac or mobile device.  In addition, your subscription includes access to digital archive copies from 2006 onwards.

Just want to read one issue? No problem you can subscribe for just one week (or longer if you wish).

Thank you to everyone who has taken the time so far to fill out our survey canvasing public opinion on the importance of the Ganavan area. The hills and woodlands, the cycle path and shinty pitch are all part of a spectacular natural amphitheatre surrounding the beautiful beach. We want to protect it.

The survey is still live via our Friends of Ganavan Facebook page and every response we receive counts. We believe that together we can influence a decision that will shape Ganavan for generations to come and keep it green.

In one month alone, we had 1,809 individuals complete the survey which was a staggering result showing just how much people care. Out of those 1,809 responses, 1,737 of them said using Ganavan’s green recreation space for a housing development would be a negative move.

More and more people are taking part as the survey continues – if you haven’t already responded – please do now.

The community response, and responses from out-of-town visitors and holidaymakers, has been massive – proving beyond any doubt that people identify Ganavan as a ‘destination’.

Let’s all work together to make sure we keep it that way and keep Ganavan green.
