I am a journalist with The Impartial Reporter newspaper in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh and regularly discuss my news stories on radio and television.

PEOPLE living in Border areas of Fermanagh are “increasingly vulnerable” due to the closure of banking institutions, Viscount Brookeborough has told the House of Lords. Raising the issue of vulnerability the Fermanagh peer spoke of isolation facing many in the area. Last year the Bank of Ireland closed its branch in Belleek sparking much controversy on both sides of the Border. “The banks have literally all come back from the Border. Societies in those villages are increasingly vulnerable.
DROPPING from an altitude of up to 15,000 feet over Australia, Sean Paul Curry’s charitable sky dive in memory of a friend he lost to suicide last year was an “unforgettable experience.” The Enniskillen man had Shauna Reilly in mind as he jumped out of a plane, free falling at over 200 kilometres an hour over sparkling white sand beaches and unspoilt hinterland.
A disused customs control point sits boarded-up at the border between Northern Ireland and Ireland, near Dundalk in Ireland. When it comes to Brexit, worry about jobs, not guns: that’s the message from a former Irish Republican Army man jailed for his part in the violence that racked Northern Ireland for almost three decades. Now 65, Tommy McKearney was imprisoned in 1976 for killing a part-time soldier.
"We remain committed to full power-sharing in the North, to shared democratic institutions, to achieving an agreement on the basis of respect, equality and integrity... when agreements previously entered into are honoured," @MaryLouMcDonald tells #SFAF17 in Dublin. https://t.co/uWJO4iQmby
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
