• Reallocate Road Space to Walking and Cycling in Limerick City #WeNeedSpace
    Limerick Cycling Campaign, the Limerick Cycle Bus and the Irish Pedestrian Network are launching the #WeNeedSpace campaign calling on Limerick Council to provide safe, usable space across the city for people to shop, exercise and commute by walking and cycling during the current crisis. Research published by Sports Ireland on the 30th April shows an additional 500,000 regular walkers, 450,000 runners and 220,000 cyclists. These numbers show a huge increase in people using public space to move around and exercise. This positive cultural change in how we use our streets should be further encouraged by making more space for people to get out and stay healthy during these difficult times. It’s very difficult for young families in the city to get fresh air and exercise while trips to parks and beaches are off-limits. We need to facilitate safe segregated cycle routes in the city to encourage family and more cautious cyclists to come out and get some exercise. A circular segregated cycle would open up the city to young people to get their exercise in a safe way. These temporary actions in response to the current emergency, would be strategic in creating a positive cultural change to make our towns and cities more liveable and contributing to a much needed boost in footfall required to aid the economic recovery when we move beyond the current crisis. Please support this campaign by signing and sharing on social media using the hashtag #WeNeedSpace and read our letter to the Council on the Limerick Cycling website.

  • Change the FAI Crest
    It's not important. There are far more important things going on in the World. We know that. However, this is something that Irish football fans might feel strongly about. The current crest used by the FAI is awful. If you ask any Irish football fan they will tell you. We would like the FAI to consider changing the current crest and go back to a design similar to those used at Italia '90 or USA '94. The current crest is just a template crest which is also used by Israel and a number of football clubs. There is nothing unique about it. The older crests give fans a sense of history and pride. Next year will be the FAI's centenary year and a perfect opportunity to change the crest. So, we ask the FAI to please change the crest to something similar to the ones used in the early to mid nineties. Please follow our facebook page too >>> https://www.facebook.com/Change-the-Crest-115497503470609

  • Nursing homes need to use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
    Clusters of COVID-19 are emerging in Nursing homes across the country putting very vulnerable people at risk. In order to protect residents and to cut down on the number of infections, staff in Nursing homes need to use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) at all times irrespective of whether or not they themselves are symptomatic.

  • Support Palestine, Continue Support for the Occupied Territories Bill
    This Bill provides the Irish government with an opportunity to uphold international law and ban the import of goods and services from any illegal settlements. This would establish a framework to hold offending governments accountable for human rights violations, which is currently not the case. It is imperative that this legislation is passed, to promote trade justice for any marginalised people suffering the oppressive impacts of illegal settlements.

  • Demand Randox release Covid-19 tests
    Randox received £23 million in public funds through Invest NI in 2018, and benefited from a research partnership with our two universities QUB and UU. Now they are selling at an extortionate price (£120 per test) at a time when people are worried about food and job security and how they'll keep a roof over their heads. Meanwhile our NHS is struggling as they don't have enough tests so that key healthcare professionals can continue to do their vital work on the frontline of the fight against this global pandemic. Demand that Randox releases the Covid-19 tests free of charge to the NHS and stops profiteering from this crisis.

  • Let Democracy Speak
    Democracy is the lynch pin of Irish society and by refusing to allow duly elected candidates to take their seats, the outgoing government is denying the people their vote. Regardless of your politics or which party you support, the very right to vote for the candidate of our choosing is being taken away by the outgoing government and this is not acceptable.
