I thought I should troll on over to the website of the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht to see if they had anything to say about the budget.
I looked straight away at the News & Recent Publications section on the front page. But I was taken aback to see that the department has not had anything to say since 15 May 2012, which is the date of the most recent addition to the section. Using the menu on the left, I find that the ministers have made no speech since October 2011 (not that I’m complaining, of course). There have been press releases, but the most recent consultation ended in March 2012.
It really is a god-awful website. DAHG needs to hire a couple of twenty-year-old interns who have some idea about tinterweb.
