The Donegal Youth Service, Beyond Borders Project in partnership with the Milford Community Youth Project and funded by the International Fund For Ireland Community Bridges program are working with young people from Milford and Carrickmore to stage MOXEGEN a non alcoholic community event for all ages.MOXEGEN takes place on Saturday the 7th of July. The event will take place from 3pm to 10pm at Moyleview Park in Milford. Young people from both North and South of the border have taken part in the planning, running and execution of this event, with help from Beyond Borders workers to ensure that it is a day not to be missed. There is a jam packed set of activities, including Glamorous Grannies, Bonny Babies, Bouncy Castles, Rodeo bulls, local bands, dancers, a disco, a BBQ, and a music concert, featuring young people from Omagh, Milford, Falcarragh and Letterkenny. There will also be much more to do on site, and we guarantee that its fun from ages 8 to 80.Music in the Marquee will feature performers from all over Donegal such as Jason McClafferty, Rosie Carney, Andrea Logue, the Phat Kidz, the Murray twins, Apollo 6, The Matthew Trainor Experience, Epic Solution and many more. The music will be presented in co-operation with Goof’s Gaf Live; a free original music promotion channel which allows local artists to exhibit their talent.Moxegen was planned with young people from Milford and Carrickmore in Omagh. They took part in a residential at the Ulster American Folk Park in Omagh. The residential got young people together from different backgrounds and gave them an opportunity to socialise and have fun in a safe environment. One of the main aims of the residential was to get young people planning or thinking about what to do at their community event, and these pictures give some idea of what went on during in their residential.Said a spokesman: “When you’re older, people will ask you where were you on the 7th of July, when MOXEGEN was taking place, don’t be a fool, tell them you were right in the middle of it.” FORGET OXEGEN – MILFORD HAS MOXEGEN! was last modified: June 26th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:FORGET OXEGEN – MILFORD HAS MOXEGEN!
zoom Tsuneishi Shipbuilding is said to be planning to venture into the construction of cruise ships at its Chinese yard based in Zhejiang Province, Nikkei reports.The construction of its first cruise ship is reportedly planned for early 2020.As informed, the cruise ship would be above 200 meters in length and have the capacity for up to 800 passengers, and it would be built for an affiliate of the Tsuinesihi Holdings group.This would be the first step in luring Chinese cruise companies to order ships domestically instead of turning to European yards which have dominated the sector so far.The shipbuilder hopes to secure orders for larger ships with the capacity to accommodate several thousands of passengers.According to Nikkei, in order to prepare for the project, the company is launching activities at the Zhejiang shipyard to boost its infrastructural capacity.The move is being strategically planned as cruise shipping is experiencing an ever-growing popularity in Asia and China in particular.In 2017, 66 cruise ships are being deployed in Asian waters, a 53 percent growth since 2013 when only 43 ships were cruising in Asia, a new report released by the Cruise Lines International Association (CLIA) finds.A total of 3.1 million Asians took cruises in 2016, 55 percent more than in 2015, the report reads.However, the growth in popularity of the emerging market needs to be accompanied by the equivalent development of various other supporting segments of the industry, including construction of cruise ships, which is currently in its infancy in China.Development of local shipbuilding capabilities in the region has been singled out as a strategic investment opportunity and has seen various major industry players tap into the market’s potential.For example, Italian shipbuilder Fincantieri has teamed up China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) for the construction of two cruise ships, the first cruise ships to be built in China.The ships, which were announced at the beginning of this year, would be built for cruise liner giant Carnival.They will be built for the Chinese market at the SWS yard, a facility of CSSC Group, with the first delivery expected in 2023.The deal came on the back of a joint venture agreed between Fincantieri and China’s shipbuilding conglomerate CSSC aimed at developing and supporting the growth of the Chinese cruise industry.World Maritime News Staff
