• CETA Free Zone: Dublin Says No To Corporate Courts
    Investor Court System (ICS) is a dispute settlement tribunal where foreign investors and corporations can take a case against Ireland for 'perceived' breaches in CETA’s investment protection standards. It allows investors to go straight to these special tribunals and sideline domestic courts and those of the European Union. Once CETA is ratified, investor court decisions cannot be challenged by either the State or the EU - this is the equivalent of handing corporations a blank cheque! Local communities and businesses across Ireland are fighting back. Together we are showing government parties and politicians that this form of corporate takeover is going to cost them dearly in the next election. And we need our local politicians to stand with us by supporting this.

  • A glow in the dark section for New Ross to Waterford Greenway.
    With the excellent Waterford Greenway on our doorstep, we feel that we need to see an unrivaled offering on this Greenway. The addition of such an environmentally friendly segment, capable of emitting fluorescent light for 10 hours in the dark after absorbing sunlight all day long would be the first of its type in Ireland and would be sheer pleasure to walk or cycle over. (Imagine the Fáilte Ireland drone shots or how good this would be for the ‘darkness in to light’ walk.) Poland has one! Now let’s bring one to Ireland’s sunny south East. Please sign this petition and help make this a reality. https://www.sustainability-times.com/clean-cities/a-sun-powered-bicycle-path-glows-in-the-dark-in-poland/ WATCH: https://youtu.be/jmSs7ZBnUso

  • Environmental Bus Shelter @ the Community Hall
    It is important as over 30 children between primary & secondary school use this in the morning time & with our climate many mornings they are going into school saturated from the rain when waiting on the bus. We would like to provide shelter for them and have an eco approach to our strucure by creating a grass roof for biodiversity and the structure would include bird feeders and a bug hotel in the back of the structure .

  • Reform the Arterial Drainage Act
    The Office of Public Works (OPW) is mandated under the Arterial Drainage Act 1945 to 'maintain' over 11,000km of river channel in Ireland - something that has resulted in the destruction of whole river systems. We need a new law that is fit to address the biodiversity and climate crisis and that works with - and for - people and nature.

  • Support an ambitious Climate Change Act for Northern Ireland #ClimateActNow
    Over ten years has passed since the UK Climate Change Act was passed and there is still no Northern Ireland specific Climate Change legislation. Northern Ireland is lagging behind, urgent and ambitious action is now required. As proposed in the cross-party Private Members Bill, we demand that a Northern Ireland Climate Act must include: - an overarching target to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions in Northern Ireland by 2045 - interim emissions reduction targets - a duty on government to bring forward a Climate Action Plan with sectoral targets and relevant policies/programmes and clear carbon budgets for each sector (to be laid before the NI Assembly within three years) - a duty on government to establish an independent monitoring and oversight body

  • Provide any survivor or victim of Mother & Baby Home with a physical copy of the report
    The victims need access to the report in physical form for various reason including age and access to a computer. This should have been considered long before this as the victims now have to listen to all manner of commentators discuss their experiences without having access to the report.

  • Upgrade Windows and Doors on the Tailteann and Dunloe Estates.
    Having a warm home is a basic human right. Windows and doors installed during construction of the estate are not fit for purpose and it is impossible to keep our homes warm. Residents are forced to burn fossil fuels to heat our homes. It is not good for the environment. We'd like council to engage in a replacement programme and install modern windows and doors.
