INISHOWEN COUNCILLOR PLEADS WITH PEOPLE TO SHOP LOCALLY

first_imgBuncrana Town Councillor Ciaran McLaughlin has pleaded with Inishowen people to shop locally.In the run-up to Christmas, the Sinn Fein politician said he is asking the public to consider the jobs dependent on those spending money locally.“I would like to ask everyone where possible to shop local this Christmas. Support local shops,restaurants, pubs and in doing so help secure jobs. The more money spent in Buncrana and local towns in Inishowen, the more jobs we can keep and create. “Businesses pay rates that pays for local amenities such as roads, footpaths, the library and our green areas and parks. I would urge the public to support our local businesses this christmas in our local towns and villages in Inishowen,” he said.He added that small businesses have been badly squeezed and are struggling to keep their doors open.“Let’s also be conscious and where possible choose local, regional and Irish produce and goods which we are lucky to have in abundance.“I know times are tough and money is scarce for many families but let’s support our local businesses,and as the money is spent locally that can only be good for the local economy.”  INISHOWEN COUNCILLOR PLEADS WITH PEOPLE TO SHOP LOCALLY was last modified: December 7th, 2013 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:buncranaCHristmasCllr Ciaran McLaughlinInishowenshop locallylast_img read more

Nintendo Switch Mini case leak suggests smaller handheld is real

first_imgFor a while, rumours have abounded that Nintendo is planning a smaller version of the Nintendo Switch for later this year, and now a slew of matching leaked designs seem to confirm the whispers of a new model for the holidays. The latest Nintendo Switch Mini leak comes from WinFuture’s Roland Quandt, via “a reliable source.” Rather than being a look at the product itself, it’s a case from a third-party manufacturer, Big Ben.As previous rumours suggested, you’re looking at a Nintendo Switch that is considerably smaller than the one you can buy today, while not losing much screen real estate thanks to the smaller bezels. The Joy-Cons, as previously rumoured, are fixed to the body to cut down on production costs, and the system will apparently ship without a dock. It is apparently still dock-compatible, but without removable Joy-Cons, you’d need a separate controller, of course.  Related: Best Nintendo Switch gamesThis seems to match quite neatly with another leak from accesory-maker Honson, which showed an almost identical design with a D-Pad replacing the four buttons on the left-hand side. This was turned into the render below by LetsGoDigital which went even further and shifted the right analogue stick up a bit – but that doesn’t feel right to me. While it’s true that an affixed Joy-Con means that players won’t have to worry about having the analogue stick on the left when removed, I can’t imagine Nintendo wanting the hassle of having to rewrite in-game instructions to match a slightly modified layout. Far easier to keep things as they are.In any case, we should find out soon enough. Recent rumours suggest that the Switch Mini will launch this autumn, in time for it to be the must-have Christmas gift all over again. It’ll be like 2017 all over again – or that’s Nintendo’s hope anyway.Do you like the look of the Switch Mini, or are detachable Joy Cons the whole point?
