• Keep Michael in Ireland - from Carlow College, St. Patrick's
    Michael has been resident in Ireland for five years. In those years he has consistently striven towards completing his education, entirely on the merit of his own hard work. Never once has he claimed assistance from the state, and has worked for the entirety of his time in Ireland. The grounds for his deportation were the result of failing to produce documents confirming his attendance at Carlow College; this was an impossibility for the simple reason that his acceptance had yet to be confirmed. Michael intends to use his degree in Social Political and Community studies to become a community worker, allowing him to better serve in whatever community he comes to reside. Upon achieving his degree, he intends to return to his native Malawi, having completed his education without any financial assistance from the Irish state. The situation in which he finds himself could befall anybody in similar circumstances, and the ends to which intends to turn his degree are supremely noble. By allowing him to complete his degree we are helping Michael to help others. The students stand with Michael. Carlow College stands with Michael. We need you to stand with Michael too. #CarlowWithMichael

  • Gorey Central School’s pupil enrollment into Gorey Community School
    Recent changes to Gorey Community School (GCS) enrolment policy mean that we at Gorey Central School have gone from a priority feeder school since our inception to one of 16 schools in a lottery. The ratified changes will come into effect for enrollment from September 2019. When parents chose Gorey Central School many did so on the understanding they were prioritized for enrollment in Gorey Community School. We are currently second in proximity to Gorey Community school and now our families face the real possibility they may have to look outside Gorey town for a place in a secondary School. We have always held strong links with Gorey Community School and feel our history, proximity and pre-existing links should be respected and honored. We wish for you to show your support for the children and families enrolled Gorey Central School currently and for generations to come.

  • TJ Fighting for Special Needs Education
    My 14 year old son, TJ, has autism. He's been without education, a school place or respite for over a year, which is simply unacceptable. They claim that every child deserves education but unfortunately, that doesn't seem to apply to special needs children. My son is not the only special needs child without a school place, there are many whose needs are also being ignored. The Department of Education does not check on the special needs children without a school place. Every child, including those with special needs, deserves a right to education. Something needs to be done and together, a great change can be achieved. Let's be their voice. Please sign this petition to help bring about the change. Thank you.

  • Clean up the site of the derelict houses at Palmer Avenue, Rush
    These houses are in shameful condition and this is now Health and Safety concern to the whole community. The derelict houses are being are attracting anti social behaviour and locals are afraid to let their children play in the Park. It is just a matter of time that something more serious or life-threatening will happen. Not to mention that these are about 200 meters from a local Primary School thus school children walking through the Park to and from school are in danger of being mistreated. It is high time this issue to be taken seriously.

  • Fund Muscular Dystrophy Ireland (MDI) in the Midwest region
    I have Muscular Dystrophy myself and have had to fight so hard, as have thousands of others, for the most basic things, From an accessible shower to basic walking aids. In fact I had to buy my own walker, as I was told there was a huge waiting list. This piece of equipment is vital for me to get around safely and now one of the wheels is not working on it. I and others want to have access to paid part-time work locally. Many among us are Hons Degree recent graduates.That is Level 8 and don't need other courses. It is very hard anyway to get into Level 9 courses locally full-time especially teaching as we find it next to impossible to find access to teaching practice in wide enough classrooms. Sadly that was my experience anyway in certain educational sectors.

  • Stop The unfair trading practices of PHECC
    pre hospital emergency care council will be the only accreditation body for first aid in the workplace. They are preventing qualified instructors from advertising this service. PHECC instructors are nurses , fire fighters , medical technicians and paramedics but Now PHECC are forcing them out of the market to the benefit of a select few larger companies. First aid instructors help us to save lives and PHECC wants to force us into unfair contracts without agreeing payment structures and without any rights as employees such as holiday pay or sick pay. Higher costs for life saving training will cost lives and will harm the public as a whole. Please sign our petition- we need life saving training of the highest standard available and accessible to all people not just the privileged few.

  • Recognise Catalonia as an Independant state
    Catalonia are being robbed financially and culturally and the majority want independence from Spain. Spain is divided up into 17 communes and each should pay 5.88% tax but Catalonia pay over 20%.Their infrasture has not been invested in with road charges going straight to Madrid while most of the rest of Spain enjoy no tolls on their roads. Their trains are over 40 years old as the rest of Spains trains have been updated while their system is falling apart. Catalonia are forbidden to create flights to the USA therefore American businesses set up in Madrid instead. Catalonia are not allowed to use renewable energies in such a sunny climate as this would affect profits for electricity suppliers based in Madrid. An agreement that Spain would reimburse Catalonia with 769 million euro was reneged upon.Spain also are trying to wipe out the Catalan language by not funding schools to teach it. There are 50 corruption cases opened with no sign of anyone been held responsible. Catalonians want a Republic like ours and not a dictatorship and I think Ireland should stand behind them.

  • Save Donaghmede Library
    Dublin City Council have confirmed that they are actively considering moving Donaghmede Library out of Donaghmede Shopping Centre and potentially relocating it outside of Donaghmede altogether. For over 30 years, Donaghmede Library has provided an essential resource to all age groups and backgrounds living in Donaghmede and in the wider community. The community are very much opposed to this potential relocation. It is essential that Dublin City Council commit to renewing their lease when it expires in June 2019.

  • Against Birdhill, Kilcomenty and Newport moving to the Limerick City Constituency
    This is important because these three areas are in the county of Tipperary and that is where all locals have voted previously. This is a decision that they were not consulted on and which has left many people infuriated. All three areas will now be left in a situation where they will vote in Tipperary in local elections and in Limerick City for Dáil Éireann elections. This leaves all areas in a precarious situation. The economic interests of all areas are best suited in Tipperary, where local and national politicians can work together in the best interest of the areas.
