  • Change Company Law- 7 Year itch
    In June 2015 430 Clerys workers were told at 5:30pm on a Friday that there jobs were gone and the company was insolvent leaving no money for redundancies yet a "flaw" in company law allowed the previous separation of assets leave the owners with millions. Its been 7 years since Clerys and Debenhams workers were affected by this "flaw" in company law also. The flaw is still there and it could happen to any of workplace. This needs to end. We need the Protection Of Employees Collective Redundancies Bill of 2017 implemented NOW!! Its at committee stage at the Dail since then. Its time to stand up and fight so no other workers will have the same fate as Clerys or Debenhams. Will you join the fight? ***Update*** It has been brought to my attention that this Bill fell when the last Dail finished. Sinn Fein have re introduced it and are waiting at Second Stage to go before the Dail. Please share far and wide and lets get this moving again

  • Support Independent Booksellers across Ireland
    Independent booksellers across Ireland are the backbone to our communities. They enable us to discover, learn, play and escape. We all cherish the feeling of holding a fresh book in your hands and getting lost in the back of a bookshop, discovering hidden gems. The benefit of local booksellers to Irish communities extend far beyond trade - they are hubs of politico, socio-cultural importance. Increasingly, the existence of independent bookshops is threatened by massive profit-making online bookshops like Amazon. As another independent bookshop is forced to shut its doors, we show solidarity by supporting independent booksellers and bookshops.

  • Save Dylan from Eviction
    Dylan Mooney has lived in Sallynoggin for 27 years. He has strong links with the local area and community and two children in local schools. His neighbours want him to continue living in the community. A few years ago, Dylan moved out of the council house where he had lived with his mother, Margret Mooney, his whole life and was taken off the rent book. A year later he moved back in and applied to be re-registered as a resident. The application was submitted although due to the impact of Covid there was a delay getting hold of one official document. The council was notified of this delay (although they are now refusing to accept this). Sadly during this time Margaret passed away. At that point the council decided he could not be added to the rent book because his family member was no longer living there and that his application was ineligible. This would not have been an issue if they had shown any form of decency or consideration for the extremely difficult circumstances Dylan was facing. The council is now taking legal action to try to get Dylan evicted. If this is allowed to happen it will have a massive negative impact on Dylan and his children. He will be forced to register as homeless and apply to the council for support finding alternative housing. This is also an enormous waste of money, both the cost of the council taking legal action and because Dylan will most likely have to register for the Housing Assistance Payment if he is evicted. All this emotional hardship and these extra financial costs could all be saved if Dylan is allowed to remain in his home. The council should be helping to solve homelessness, not causing it! This eviction cannot be allowed to happen. Dylan is asking for a strong show of community support in order to pressure the council to allow him to remain in his home. Please sign and share this petition to show your support.

  • Keep Ireland LNG Free
    Keep Ireland LNG Free Petition Renewable energy is the future and Ireland has taken major steps towards a cleaner, greener future by banning fracking and new offshore drilling licences for fossil fuels. As thousands of communities around the world, scientists and our own government agree, it doesn’t make sense to support major new oil and gas infrastructure which could lock us into fossil energy for 30 - 40 years and damage our ability to fulfil our climate action commitments. But right now, ignoring public sentiment and government resolve [1], fossil fuel companies are planning to build multiple Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) terminals, a particularly climate-damaging fossil fuel, on the Irish coast, including in Kerry [2], Cork, Mayo and Louth [3]. These companies will continue to seek ways to side step and undermine our national efforts for a fossil free future [4]. We need to stop them once and for all by passing legislation against LNG infrastructure, the new LNG Free Bill. When we take action together, we take leaps towards a healthy planet. Working in solidarity achieved a nationwide ban on offshore drilling - let's do it again and Keep Ireland LNG free! What is LNG and why is it so dangerous? Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is fossil gas which has been turned into a liquid to be transported around the world on tankers. At every stage of its production it leaks methane, making it hugely climate-damaging [5]. On a full life-cycle basis, it is as devastating for the climate as coal or oil [6]. LNG is often obtained by fracking, which we banned in Ireland because of its appalling environmental and health impacts - including birth defects, respiratory disease and increased cancer rates in local communities [7]. However, if LNG infrastructure was developed in Ireland, we would be unable to control whether gas arriving in Ireland is fracked or not. LNG terminals could also cause significant health impacts and even risk to life for Irish communities due to air pollution and potential gas leaks and explosions [8]. Increasing our nation’s reliance on LNG fossil fuel energy will further expose us to energy insecurity and price rises, deepening the cost of living crisis. The most secure source of energy for the future is indigenous renewables supported by storage [9]. Renewables are already cheaper than fossil fuels [10] and LNG would threaten investment in renewables by flooding the market with dirty energy [11]. Take action - Keep Ireland LNG Free! Sign the petition to Taoiseach Micheál Martin asking him to pass the LNG Free Bill.

  • Make Integrated Education A Priority
    It's been 40 years since the first integrated school was started here, but in 2022 only 7.5% of schools here are integrated schools - bringing together children from all backgrounds - Catholic, Protestant and other. But there is overwhelming demand: 71% of people here believe our children should be educated together. Stormont has commissioned a new Independent Review of Education that could change everything - but we need you to tell them integrated education matters to you so that they make recommendations to promote integrated education! Now's your chance to speak up! Email the panel members now and tell them that you want to live in a future where all our children are educated together, promoting reconciliation.

  • Play more Irish music and artists on the radio
    Radio plays an important role in introducing listeners to new music and artists. Each licensed station should be required to devote a minimum 20% percent of its weekly music broadcasting to Irish artists. Both Canada & France have policies in place to ensure their homegrown talent is given their fair share of airplay. Let's do the same for our own amazing artists! "Just do it, every fourth song has to be from an Irish act. It wouldn’t kill people and it wouldn’t make people turn off." Dave Fanning. “Irish radio will not play enough Irish records and I just don’t understand it. How can we break a new act if our own radio stations won’t play our own acts?" Louis Walsh. Canadian content requirements for music on Canadian radio: https://crtc.gc.ca/Eng/cancon/r_cdn.htm

  • Accommodate Immunocompromised Students in IADT
    At the beginning of the year these students signed up to third level education and paid their student contribution fees with the understanding that they could safely and effectively complete their studies for this academic year. The change in accommodation mid-year is discriminatory towards students whos disabilities and illnesses mean they cannot risk in-person attendance while COVID-19 is still a factor.
