As part of this CA for Media, Discourse & Analysis – we as a group are required to create a video about a current issue in Ireland. The video may contain archive content under fair usage, such as images, audio and video. The video must also contain original footage shot by ourselves, as well as all content in the video being edited by ourselves. The piece must reflect on what we have discussed in the module over the course of this semester.

The curent issue in Ireland we are considering basing this video on, is the current discussion about the introduction of water charges. As such, we are carrying out research on the topic and familiarizing ourselves with the debate and what kind of news stories have all ready been presented on it. The following are a collection of articles and videos we are currently studying:
