  • Get Bins for Clerihan Village!
    There has been no bins in Clerihan Village for a long time now. The community have organised many clean-ups, but they will never be as effective as bins. Without bins the children, adults, elderly and biodiversity of Clerihan are suffering. The village has become disgusting due to the lack of proper disposal areas. WE NEED BINS!

  • Stop the Closure of the Aughagad Link Road
    This road provides a safer turning point for all residents turning onto the N15 going to Grange and to Sligo Town. The council gave very little notice of the road closure to those of us living in the area. They have made claims of increasing safety by implementing a right hand turning lane but this has not yet been done. How can they make this claim and close a road prior to their so-called better safety measures being implemented. Please sign this petition!

  • 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.

  • General election needed for 2021
    We the Irish people who pay the salaries of the give every have the right to decide who governs our nation. We are now faced with a government who have shown lack of compassion and care towards the Irish people as a whole. They have proved they are not trustworthy or capable of governing this country. We the Irish people voted for change in February 2020 and this has been denied by the current cabinet. We deserve the change that was voted for. Our health system is at its knees, our housing is in a state of emergency and in need of a sensible but compassionate approach. Our elderly are being robbed of what they worked all their lives to earn, those who refuse to work are being rewarded heavily through social welfare. A reform of the entire system is needed. Our rural communities are at their knees, almost at the point of extinction. Crime is at an all time high in this country and the Garda are without the powers to enforce the rule of law.

  • Change Light sequence at Plunkett roundabout. Stop Vehicles Blocking roundabout
    I propose the sequence is changed to allow the lights to go red, to stop vehicles coming from Kilkenny and blocking the roundabout, every couple of minutes. This will give the people travelling from the New ross side, wexford and ferrybank side a chance, to turn onto the roundabout/ bridge. In the Morning It currently takes us 25 minutes to go 1.5 miles over the bridge from ross side. It is a disgrace. Lets's change this

  • CALLING ON THE IRISH GOVERNMENT TO INVEST MORE IN SCIENCE!!
    According to the World Health Organization, approximately 1 billion cases and millions of deaths each year can be traced back to diseases originating from animal populations. In the past three decades, researchers have found more than 30 bacteria or viruses that are capable of infecting humans. Over three quarters of those are believed to have come from animal populations. And while the current pandemic may feel like a very rare happening, scientists say the pace of these pandemics is accelerating dramatically thanks to humans' ever-encroaching proximity to wildlife. "The time between these outbreaks is getting shorter and shorter," said Dr. Tracey McNamara, a professor of pathology at Western University of Health Sciences College of Veterinary Medicine. And it's becoming increasingly clear that these viruses aren't just a threat to our health -- they're also a threat to the global economy. "We are only able to sustain an outbreak maybe once every decade," said Dr. Peter Daszak, president of EcoHealth Alliance. "The rate we are going is not sustainable." As our population continues to expand, the interactions between humans and wildlife grow closer and closer. Cutting down forests and altering habitats push animals out of their own homes and deeper into human communities. Poorly developed hygiene and sanitation systems can make it more likely for germs to build up. With humans and animals living in such close proximity, bacteria and viruses can easily jump from one species to another. Once people become infected, the increasing interconnectedness of our world makes the spread of the disease easier. People and domestic animals are able to traverse the globe in a matter of hours. Illegal trade of exotic animals can move across borders undetected, carrying with them deadly bacteria and viruses.

  • Brown Bin Collection in Newtowncashel
    Currently I put all food waste in my black bin which costs me a lot of money but this cost would greatly decrease if a brown bin was available in our area as it only costs €2 per collection for a food waste caddy bin. It would also benefit our environment if our food waste was being disposed of correctly.
