Geography and the Media
The Geographical Society of Ireland is keen to promote the discipline of Geography, the work of Geographers and our potential contribution to addressing major societal challenges. We believe that Geography can provide a unique and integrating perspective that moves beyond the traditional disciplinary ‘silos’ that typify academic endeavour. Here are links to some recent news articles by geographers across Ireland. If you would like a link included please email us the details and we will be delighted to add them.
