• Keep the Munster Rugby Choir
    The Munster Rugby Supporters Club Choir has been a regular fixture at matches for more than a decade, but they're now disbanding after Munster Rugby said there's appetite for "new match day entertainment on the pitch". We call on Munster Rugby to reverse this decision and to bring back the choir.

  • Save Newpark Music Academy
    The Newpark Academy of Music has been providing musical experience and education for neigh on 45yrs.  Young and old have stepped across its doors to plunge into a world of nuanced musical expression. Newpark - though it's many guises of individual classical and jazz lessons, choirs, orchestra, quartets - has provided a locus of community involvement for its students and their families. The mental health benefits accued from being involved with musical expression is well documented. In a post covid era where many of us are struggling to move our children and ourselves away from screen based activites, the loss of Newpark Academy of Music is the loss of something indefinable and vitally important to the students who have crossed its threshold.  Music feeds our soul.  To have a school providing high quality teaching in the suburbs, indeed on the doorstep of many students homes is an exceptional resource, one to be cherished and protected. The loss of Newpark Academy of Music to the area of Blackrock and Stillorgan will be enormous. This resource is too important to let slip away.

  • We Have Brigid's Day, let's Sign Brigid's Way
    Brigid as the Celtic Goddess of Spring and the Matron Saint of Ireland has been revered for generations yet her 9 day Pilgrimage route from her birthplace in Faughart, Co. Louth through Co. Meath and the Hill of Tara to her monastic community in Kildare is not waymarked. We wish to help encourage the County Councils, Ireland's Ancient East, Fáilte Ireland Tourism Agency, Tourism Ireland and the Dept of Rural & Community Development to provide funding and commission a feasibility study to create signage along the route with an App and a Map. Then Brigid's Way may join her 12 brother Pilgrimages who have been signed for many years (St Kevin's Way, St Declan's Way, Croagh Patrick etc)  Please sign your name and write your location. Spread the word - the more people who sign the quicker anyone can walk this 9 day Pilgrimage themselves similar to the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Currently a group of volunteers lead groups once a year and 1 day walks twice a year. We want to make this accessible for everyone.  Dr Karen Ward, on behalf of the Brigid's Way volunteers https://www.uplift.ie/wp-content/uploads/2024/05/image.png

  • We are boycotting Eurovision 2024
    BBC and RTÉ are member sof the European Broadcasting Union (EBU), which runs Eurovision. Even though the bosses of the BBC and RTÉ, Tim Davie and Kevin Bakhurst, have the power to put pressure on the EBU to expel Israel, neither have taken any action. Unlike the BBC and RTÉ, we will not let Israel artwash genocide by boycotting this year's event. Sign the petition and join our boycott today!

  • Twin Cork City with Gaza City
    What greater act of solidarity would it be than for Cork to twin with Gaza City? Gaza was a beautiful and vibrant city before the repeated, violent Israeli attacks. Both Cork City and Gaza City have suffered from acts of vengeance. “The people of Cork have been on the streets ever since October. The solidarity has been heartwarming for me as someone who was born in Gaza and who has many friends and family still there suffering unimaginable hardship. It would be the greatest honor for them if our two great cities were to be connected by ‘twinning’. ” Nasser Al Swirki. A son of Gaza living in Cork UCC links: Gaza is a University City. All of Gaza’s universities now lie in ruins. The Gaza City university has developed partnerships with 142 higher education institutions around the world. Let’s make UCC one of those partners! CUH links? Al-Shifa Hospital was the largest medical complex and central hospital in the Gaza. We will need medical partners. Environmental Links? Now destroyed. Wadi Gaza: In 2023 the Gaza Strip’s only wetland was slowly coming back to life.

  • Enact the Occupied Territories Bill
    At this stage in the genocide it is unbelievable that Ireland has a powerful bill, that could help the people of Palestine, waiting in the wings to be enacted since 2018. It took immense effort from many political, academic and legal minds to get it passed through our legislature. There is no legal excuse for stalling it any longer. To quote Sen. Frances Black “... it’s not a legal issue, it’s a question of political will. The weight of legal advice makes it clear that we can pursue this if we’re willing to be brave about it – we need to stand up and show leadership”. (Irish times, 13 Jun 2020.) Something has to begin the process of turning the tide on the genocide in Palestine, especially Gaza. The OTB has been identified by multiple organisations nationally and internationally as the single most important and effective action that Ireland as a nation can take, at this time in April 2024. Enacting the OTB can without doubt have a ripple effect throughout the world. Let's throw the pebble in the ocean of support for Palestine and see it do the work it was always intended to achieve.

  • Name The Phibsborough/Glasnevin Metro Stop After The Brian Boru Pub
    The Brian Boru Pub has been situated on the banks of the Royal Canal and has traded as a public house for over a decade. Such is its place in the collective consciousness of Dubliners, it has featured in the prominent works of James Joyce (Ulysses) and James Plunkett (Strumpet City). The pub is to be replaced with a station on Metro North and we believe that the calls, heretofore, for the new Metro Station to be named in accordance with the pub are entirely apt. Please sign so that we can afford our built heritage the respect it duly deserves.

  • Rename Docklands to 'Dublin Markievicz'
    Whilst many stations around the country are named after leaders of the revolutionary period, none are named after female revolutionaries. This is a sad reflection on the historical lack of importance attached the gender equality in the public realm. Constance Markievicz was a trailblazer in many ways: she was the first women to be elected to Westminster, the first female cabinet minister in Europe in the first Dáil, a suffragette, socialist and feminist. It is time we began to recognise the contribution of such women to our nation, and this would be a fine way to recognise her.

  • Stop the greedy gambling corporations
    Gambling addiction has the highest suicide rate of any addiction and problem gambling is on a sharp rise in Ireland. With gambling corporations constantly advertising their products and hiring data scientists and psychology experts to make their apps more addictive, we are in desperate need of proper regulation. Currently, the gambling industry in Ireland self-regulates. The Programme for Government in 2020 promised to establish an official gambling regulator but it still hasn't happened.
