  • 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.

  • Call for the resignation of Dara Calleary and others who did not follow guidelines
    We need public representatives who lead by example, particularly in these difficult times. It is unacceptable that there is one rule for them and another for the general public. It's not like it was an essential event either.

  • Stop the abuses of Meat Plant workers
    The Covid crisis has shown how weak protections are for all workers in this country. The scandal in the meat plants is just one blatant example. Failure to act now and give these workers greater protections and workplace rights will mean huge health risks for all workers and communities affected in the future

  • 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.

  • Stop the closure of St. Mary's Home in Merrion
    35 blind and visually-impaired ladies have lived here some for over six decades. The proposal is to close the centre and transfer these people to other locations. They have been friends for years; they know the layout of their environment; now they are to be separated and sent to different places. It is difficult enough when you are blind to get to know a new place but when you are an elderly prson it is much more difficult.

  • Prevent Old age Pension entitlement age from increasing
    Having reached 62 ( any being a cancer survivor this last 5 years) With a Husband who is 65 still working but with a thyroid condition, I am very conscious about how different our bodies and minds are coming into later life and how difficult it is for may people to be able to work effectively as age progresses. My personal view is that the original age of 65 was introduced for this reason and should not have been changed. We have paid our taxes and social welfare payments for the past 45-50 years in good faith that when our time came we could reap our reward (despite it being at a very basic level) The government knew we were coming and should have provided for us as we have carried this country through these years. The argument that people are living longer simply sucks. Yes some do (thanks to improved medical services etc. ) I agree, but many do not and we should not be forced to continue to drag our weary bodies around the workplace for a further 5 years until we are sure almost dead. Can the government not see that instead of having the older population on OAP, they are simply going to have to sustain them on medical /disability basis. Lets face it we have by the age of 65/66 paid our dues and should be entitled to enjoy what remains of our lives in freedom and peace. Perhaps some of us do live longer, but how many of these end up in Nursing Homes where they have to hand over their homes via Fair deal schemes plus their old age pension to cover the cost of their care. (Incidentally this system only allows them keep c.€40 per week for personal items including Prescription costs so families usually have to supplement this.) In my view the younger generation should be giving this matter greater consideration and support than they are,They should begin to realise that their time will come sooner than they expect. Unfortunately, though many of the young believe themselves infallible and do not realise how fast old age comes upon us.
