Éire go Brágh

How many more scandals?

Welcome to 2014, not much has changed I’m afraid, the scandals continue. On January 1st our water services were handed over to Irish Water, we are to be charged for it from October next.  John Tierney, CEO has said that anyone who doesn’t pay will have their supply “disrupted“, whatever that means. We hear that […]

A MODEST PROPOSAL – Jonathan Swift

Published in 1729, learn about this work of satire on Wiki. For preventing the children of poor people in Ireland, from being a burden on their parents or country, and for making them beneficial to the publick. by Dr. Jonathan Swift It is a melancholy object to those, who walk through this great town, or travel […]

Austerity in the Interests of Paying Gamblers!

The issue with the policy of austerity, household taxes, water charges, reduced services etc. is that this is NOT the preferred policy of the Irish people – the evidence says that the opposite is true. Austerity is simply to pay for the bailout of Europe’s banking system and currency.  Even though Ireland only represents 1% […]

Is there No End to this Crisis?

This weeks’ discussion on the question of water meters, and the revelation that there will be problems applying it to one third of households, tells its own story.  It was the same with the household and septic tank charges, there is a blinkered haste to impose this policy. The point is that this policy is […]

Bréagadóirí ar fad atá sna Páirtithe Polaitiúla – gach duine acu!

Is deacair a chreidiúint go bhfuil bliain imithe ón lá a síneadh an conradh fealltach sin leis an Troika – an IMF/ECB/EU, an ‘bailout’ mar a ghlaotar air go minic.  Rinneadh an conradh sin idir an Taoiseach, an tAire Airgeadais agus an Troika ar son muintir na hÉireann – ní raibh aon réamheolais, fiú ag […]

Shameful neglect of ‘Special Needs’ highlighted

A packed meeting last week heard upsetting stories from hard pressed parents, teachers and Special Needs Assistants (SNA).  These normally silent and voiceless people suffer from services withdrawn by the previous government and again by the current FG/Labour coalition. The effect of these cuts has been to deprive children of their rights as equal citizens. […]

More on welfare ‘Fraud’, the values are bogus.

Social Welfare Fraud

She has quoted millions of […]
