• Ask Irish retailers to make their "own brand" food packaging plastic free!
    Our addiction to oil-based plastic is destroying the natural world and has become an existential threat to many species, including our own. Every day, around 8 million pieces of plastic drift into the world's oceans. There, they are often fatally ingested by marine animals, including sea turtles, whales, seals and seabirds. Around 100,000 marine animals and a million seabirds die annually from plastic pollution. Many of these species are now facing extinction due to human activity. Musgrave Group and Dunnes Stores, Ireland's two largest domestic retailers, can make a small but significant contribution to changing this narrative by refusing to use plastic packaging for their "own brand" food products. We call on them to do so for the long-term benefit of our communities, the natural environment and future generations.

  • Ban Hunting with dogs in Northern Ireland
    Currently Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK which has NOT outlawed hunting with dogs. 61% of people think it has already been banned. Hunting with dogs was banned in Scotland through the Protection of Wild Mammals (Scotland) Act in 2002 and in England and Wales in 2005 under the Hunting Act. People here feel strongly about this issue. In 2016 an Ipsos MORI poll commissioned by the League against Cruel Sports said fewer than one in five people supported fox hunting remaining legal.

  • 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

  • Rid our food chain of Single Use Plastics
    Single use plastics are damaging to the environment, non-recyclable and are a by product of the oil industry. With rocketing co2 levels and extreme weather events now a reality, we need to divest.

  • Limit chain stores to preserve small business and the heritage of Galway
    Galway is becoming a carbon copy city and losing what makes it special. It is becoming uniform, full of multinational chains instead of the beautiful independent businesses it once had and is famous for.

  • I support Martin Kenny TD and stand against intimidation of supporters of asylum seekers.
    Free speech should not provoke fear of retribution by intimidation and acts of violence. People who support the rights of asylum seekers should not be silenced through fear. Our society must not be silenced by inarticulate bullies.

  • Fermoy needs Bus Shelters
    These two bus stops are the most used bus stops in Fermoy of which hundreds of commuters used daily to travel to their desired destinations. In the winter, with reoccurring storms and heavy downfall of precipitation, people waiting to board their bus at these bus stops have no shelter in harsh weather conditions. As the buses are frequently late upon arrival, commuters are subjected to the harsh elements of winter in Ireland. It is of severe importance that Fermoy, Co. Cork is developed to a standard that is similar to that of other major commuting towns of Ireland. Hence, these bus stop shelters for commuters to use are essential during the harsh weather of irish winters.

  • Insurance Referendum
    The cost of insurance is ruining the country causing all sorts of disruption to business and leisure activity. A referendum would allow us to move onto the same system as the rest of the EU (ex UK) where awards are determined by Government and not the Courts.
