New web forum set up for unemployed people
A new forum-orientated social networking website has been set up for unemployed people.
Halfaloaf.ie aims to help people who have been made redundant cope with their new way of life.
The website's founder, Tom O'Mahoney, says many people find it difficult to adapt when they lose their jobs.
Some find they have too much time on their hands, while others may miss having people around to talk to.
Halfaloaf.ie aims to provide information on social activities, as well as facilitating the discussion of business ideas and networking for job-seekers.
