• Equal rights, proper pay and national job discription for Health Care Assistants and carers
    As I am both a health care assistant and help my partner with her parents who need full time care, she only gets €109 a week which is shambolic for all she does and saves the country like all other carers who look after their children, parents, and young adults with disabilities, they need more support as medication, treatment and other outgoings are very expensive and it is unrealistic to expect these people to live on such a small allowance.

  • Require Employers to Allow Working from Home
    Currently there is no legislation to stop employers from requiring employees to attend offices in person. This means employers are allowed to ask employees to come in if they decide creating a hot spot for virus transmission.

  • Minimum wage should be a living wage.
    It raises quality of life for everyone; with more adequate living standards for the many people that are now barely surviving on a very unjust minimum wage that puts 'gross' profit before human individuals, families and communities whose welfare is the very cornerstone of our society in the first place.

  • Dunshaughlin - Plastic Free Shopping in Aldi
    Plastic packaging in supermarkets is one of the largely uneccesary uses for plastic in Ireland. We once got by perfectly without it, and that's what we need to do now. If we can support Aldi in bringing in a new zero-waste aisle, there could be a whole village-load less of plastic pollution coming from Dunshaughlin.

  • Rid our food chain of Single Use Plastics
    Single use plastics are damaging to the environment, non-recyclable and are a by product of the oil industry. With rocketing co2 levels and extreme weather events now a reality, we need to divest.

  • Limit chain stores to preserve small business and the heritage of Galway
    Galway is becoming a carbon copy city and losing what makes it special. It is becoming uniform, full of multinational chains instead of the beautiful independent businesses it once had and is famous for.

  • Strengthen laws on greyhound racing after RTE investigates programme
    It's important because Ireland as a country and a people have a reputation of been caring towards animals a reputation that the RTE investigates programme seriously questions. Secondly because the irish taxpayer is giving this industry 16.5million euro every year which equates to a quarter of a billion since the early 2000's and as such the animals in question deserve proper treatment and care and if the bodies who control the sport don't want to then the taxpayer who funds it should hold them to account. Thirdly because precedent has been set Sports Ireland withdrew 3 million of funding from FAI over strange financial practices and a loan from its CEO to the organisation yet the Irish Greyhound Board gets 16.5 million to allow the practices highlighted in Wednesday RTE Investigates programme which for me it just as bad if not worse than what FAI were doing

  • An Honest Reply from Axa
    I abhor the human rights abuses that are taking place in Palestine. I cannot be a customer of a company that supports, whether directly or indirectly, the occupation of Palestinian territories by Israel and the ensuing human suffering that it inflicts. International human rights group SumOfUs suggests that the insurer is violating international law by financing the arms maker Elbit Systems. SumOfUs has accused AXA of contributing to the suffering of the Palestinian people by having a financial interest in Elbit Systems and three Israeli banks that “finance Israel’s illegal settlement expansion.” SumOfUs’ campaign comes after the International Federation of Human Rights allegedly found that several French financial groups, including AXA, are directly or indirectly linked with Israeli businesses involved in settlement activities in the occupied Palestinian territory. In reply, AXA has said "Our investments in the Israeli banks targeted by this campaign represent around 0.004% of the Group’s assets under management and are mainly assets managed for third party clients of our asset management subsidiaries." What I would like know is, are AXA still involved in these investments, and how much in real monetary terms 0.004% accounts for? If it such a small amount, as they suggest, why don't they just drop it?

  • Introduce legislation to regulate the use of the word “Institute” in Ireland
    The word ‘Institute’ conveys a sense of learning, gravitas and professionalism. Any organization that wishes to be called an institute should be required to comply with a set of national standards to ensure the public are not mislead by the term in that organizations title. We strictly regulate the domain name .ie to ensure a high set of standards are complied with. We should consider this to be no less important.
