• Save Citizen Information services in Killaloe Ballina
    It’s with alarming concert that we the community of killaloe & Ballina hear that the local weekly citizens advice service had been suspended due to unforeseen circumstances. The community of killaloe & Ballina have a population of over 4,500 residents and the service had been in situ for well over 10 years providing free information advice support and Advocacy. We the community of Killaloe & Ballina value that weekly citizens information (CIC) service and wish to emphasise the importance of it, in supporting and addressing our complex queries. We have sign this petition to highlight the importance of keeping this service open in Killaloe to meet the needs of our community and to especially provide a face to face service to those that are marginalised and unable to get to Limerick or Nenagh Citizens information centers offices.

  • 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

  • Rekindle TRUST in Irish Politics
    Because we, Irish people, are getting a bad deal. We will get better results from a new system of government. We need TRANSPARANCY, ACCOUNTABILITY and RESPONSIBILITY from politicians who should be limited to serving ONE term in office. The current system permits/encourages poor decisions by politicians. A truly TRANSPARENT system will attract and deliver honest politics from honest politicians ... and will not appeal to others.

  • Put 'The Northern Irish Hard Boarder' between Scotland and England
    It would allow for a peaceful resolution if May was actually willing to agree to it, and even if (or I suspect when) it was rejected out of hand it would do good for the relationship between reasonable Ulster Unionist political factions and our Republic.

  • Reduce The Cost Of Children’s Hospital
    It’s time the Irish people's voice is heard so we are asking you to sign this petition requesting Simon Harris to go back to the drawing board and negotiate a better deal, change design, or look for new contractors, whatever it takes to stop such a despicable waste of hard working tax payers money. This is gross mismanagement, and incompetence of government to deliver a service within a reasonable budget. Other desperately needed health facilities across the country will not go a head or will be dramatically delayed for up to 10 years. That means in your local area you will not have adequate facilities such as MRI scanning and adequate orthopaedic facilities to name just a few. Please share your voice.

  • Taxpayers should NOT be funding the Popes security costs
    We have suffered untold trauma at the behest of the church and convents, mother and baby homes, illegal adoption, clerical abuse, etc., etc. The Roman Catholic church are the Richest bank in the world and can pay for whatever costs this trip will incur. Enough is enough!

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
