SOMETHING BIG IS coming this Friday, 25 May.

And we’re not talking about the referendum on the Eighth Amendment to the Constitution (although that is definitely still happening, don’t worry).

The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR to you and me – will finally come into force in four days time, after two years of a lead-in.

It’s the biggest such regulation the Union has seen for 30 years. It brings massive fines for businesses who haven’t got their house in order, and myriad other things.

It particularly affects the individual, to a huge extent.

But what exactly does it mean for me, you may ask?

Well, we’ll be holding a Facebook Live Q&A  tomorrow afternoon at 2.30pm with Graham Doyle, head of communications with the Data Protection Commissioner, in an effort to answer that question.

So, if you’ve any questions on the subject at all, stick them in the comments section, email them to, or keep an eye out for the Facebook Live tomorrow from 2.30pm and get your questions in on the Facebook page.
