(Friday, December 20)“The Minister for Health Simon Harris, has made it clear that existing reconfiguration plans are superseded by Slaintecare and that any health service reform or reconfiguration will now only take place within the implementation of the Slaintecare plan for regional health areas.“He also confirmed there will be no decisions made which would reduce capacity in the health service at a time when there is clearly high demand and pressure on Emergency Departments around the country.”Minister Flanagan highlighted the need for ongoing investment at MRHP, while acknowledging the opening of the €8 million facility this year in the shape of the Medical Assessment Unit and Day Ward unit opened in January of this year.This development was funded with a €7 million capital investment and additional revenue for medical and nursing staff.Link corridor ‘Hospital Street’ (from AMAU to Emergency Department) with an investment of €900,000 was also opened.Urgent priorities such as the improved and enhanced entrance to the Hospital and the conversion of the former Chapel for administration use must be advanced, he said.Minister Flanagan also stressed that the budget for MRHP continues to grow having increased by 44% since 2012 to €65m. Similarly, the growth in staff numbers continues as there are now 752 positions – an increase of 35% in five years.“I am pleased that Minister Harris confirmed that he is proceeding with a consultation process on Portlaoise Hospital in order to provide an opportunity to patients, clinicians, staff and the local community to give their views on service configuration in Portlaoise.“This is an important step to move on from the uncertainty which has hung over the hospital and to allow the voices of the people who are closest to the service to be heard.”SEE ALSO – LISTEN: Minister Charlie Flanagan on the latest LaoisToday Talking Politics Podcast Facebook GAA Pinterest GAA TAGSMinister Charlie FlanaganPortlaoise Hospital RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Home News Community Positive vibes as Minister Flanagan meets Simon Harris in relation to Portlaoise… NewsCommunityPolitics Positive vibes as Minister Flanagan meets Simon Harris in relation to Portlaoise Hospital Twitter WhatsApp Here are all of Wednesday’s Laois GAA results Facebook Previous articleNew lease of life on the cards for Laois waterwaysNext articleTusla-Child and Family Agency reaching out to Laois families for urgent foster care LaoisToday Reporter 2020 U-15 ‘B’ glory for Ballyroan-Abbey following six point win over Killeshin By LaoisToday Reporter – 20th December 2019 GAA Pinterestlast_img read more

Let’s hope whoever represents Kildare South after February 8 feels the same.Obviously we are all fighting a similar battle.A battle for servicesA battle for assessmentA battle for supportA battle for equal educationI have used my voice as a public representative to highlight issues for people with disability.I am also an auntie to my nephew Tomás who has spastic quadriplegia and I know the difficulties and battle faced by both him and his parents on a daily basis. You can follow Tomás journey here. I have been an advocate and board member for Sensational Kids highlighting these work that they do for children with autism and other learning needs off waiting lists for Speech and Language, Occupational Therapy and other services.I worked for Cerebral Palsy Ireland and was tasked with managing the national rebranding to Enable Ireland and ensured that at all times the voice of our service users was front and centre in the rebranding of the organisation.I was a founder member of the South Kildare Educate Together (SKET) campaign for a new school to address the need for additional school places including the need for ASD classrooms for children with autism.I wish to publicly give my support to The Disability Action Coalition and commit to ensuring that their asks are included in the next Programme for Government.They are looking to:Reverse the €20m cut which the HSE is planning to make to the 2020 disability budget, which will hit services severelyResolve the problem of deficits being faced by Section 39-funded disability services – this will cost €20m a year.Restore pay fully to Section 39 disability service providers.Implement the important recommendations of the Independent Review Group chaired by Dr Catherine Day, which called for a new way of working with and funding organisations like these.The Coalition is made up of nine disability service providers who together employ 9000 staff and provide services to tens of  thousands of people with disability, all across the country.The organisations involved are: Irish Wheelchair Association, Enable Ireland, National Council for the Blind in Ireland, MS Ireland, the Rehab Group, Cheshire Ireland, Chime, Headway and Acquired Brain Injury Ireland. These organisations are now in crisis, because of underfunding – this much change.So both my heart and mind are with people with disabilities.

Perhaps Fianna Fáil and Fine Gael can bring that up with them in Government talks,” she fired across the chamber to Cllr Aird.“The owners of the bog are Bord na Móna. They have a right to open the bogs,” Cllr Aird responded.“Are you suggesting they break the law,” came back Cllr Dwane-Stanley repeatedly. “Your Government will be in talks with the Greens.”Cllr Aird hit back saying Cllr Dwane-Stanley “was typical of Sinn Féin” and that “you don’t represent the people that want to be cutting turf”.Cllr Aird had earlier said that the “single biggest issue at the moment” was the bogs not being open due to the current Coronavirus restrictions.“It’s one of the best years we’ve ever had weather wise and only private plots can be saved. There’s no sod of turf turned. There’s five or six hundred people in this area alone that are affected by it.“People are very annoyed about this. Families are going to the bog going back six, seven, eight generations and I consider all people going to the bog for generations as custodians of the bog.“Bord na Móna are rubbing their noses in it. There is no point in giving it the green light in August – people want to be on it now.”“It’s really regrettable what’s happening,” added Cllr Fitzgerald.“With all the goodwill in the community and people pulling together, this is a ridiculous policy.“Families are on to me – and people are only too willing to go to the bog.“Bord na Móna as a company have made an incredible contribution to Irish life going back to Sean Lemass’s time – but they have to act quickly on this.”“I had about six calls about it this morning before 10am,” added chairman of the Portlaoise Municipal District John Joe Fennelly.“There is loads of people willing to do the work, all local families. The whole of Laois is affected by this. Maybe we can email Bord na Móna, I’m certainly prepared to go and meet them,” he said.Cllr Mary Sweeney said they all had worked on the bog in their younger days.“We enjoyed it and we hated it,” she laughed.“There are a huge number of people for whom turf is their only method of fuel.”Laois Sinn Féin TD Brian Stanley also issued a statement on it.“This whole situation is outrageous in that Green policy is denying Midlands communities work and source of fuel for homes, in many cases the only fuel that is available to them,” he said.“I am calling on Fianna Fail and Fine Gael to now ensure that the programme for Government they are negotiating with the Green party, contains an explicit commitment to allow the cutting of turf to continue for domestic fuel on Bord na Mona bogs.“There is now a direct onus on Fianna Fail and Fine Gael TDs and Councillors to make sure this happens.”SEE ALSO – Laois County Council urged to think differently to help businesses in ‘new normal’ TAGSBord na MonaLaois County CouncilPortlaoise Municipal District Bizarre situation as Ben Brennan breaks up Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael arrangement to take Graiguecullen-Portarlington vice-chair role Electric Picnic RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

first_imgCricket Fans Urged to Purchase Tickets Through Official Channels UncategorizedFebruary 12, 2007 RelatedCricket Fans Urged to Purchase Tickets Through Official Channels Advertisements RelatedCricket Fans Urged to Purchase Tickets Through Official Channelscenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Cricket fans are being encouraged to purchase their tickets for the ICC Cricket World Cup (CWC) 2007 through the official channels, or risk being denied entry to match venues.Tickets are available upon application to www.cricketworldcup.com and at the official ICC CWC 2007 ticket offices in all host venue countries. In Jamaica, the office is located at Shops 51 and 52 in Kingston Mall downtown.“If you buy the ticket through official sources, you will not have any problem,” said Derek Jones, Senior Legal Counsel for the ICC CWC 2007 Inc.Indeed, the ICC CWC 2007 Inc. has been cracking down on scalpers, some of whom have advertised tickets for sale on eBay. “If you buy a ticket on the eBay website, you run a real risk that when you come to the ground for a match they [authorities] may actually know that you bought that ticket on eBay and you may have the privilege of going back home to watch the game on television,” he pointed out.Furthermore, he added, “you may not find the eBay man to get back the money spent”.In early January, some 200 tickets for the event, including some for top matches, were made null and void, when persons tried to resell them on auction websites, which is contrary to the Ticketing Terms and Conditions.The event organizers also made the decision not to offer any refunds as a means of sending a strong message to would be scalpers. “You do not want the event to get the reputation that people are being gorged for tickets and therefore one of the mechanisms that you use to control that is you only have official authorized persons selling tickets and that is the ICC CWC organization,” Mr. Jones emphasized.He also warned fans not to purchase tickets from unscrupulous persons, who hang around venues, because of the likelihood that they would not be allowed to enter the venue after having purchased the ticket. “We do not want that to happen,” he implored.For the person, who purchases tickets and is unable to attend the matches due to sickness among other causes, and decides to pass on the tickets to other persons, Mr. Jones said that this would not be a problem.”We decided to take a slightly different approach from FIFA World Cup Football, whereby the buyer’s name had to be on the ticket. In our case, in the opening phase, you could purchase up to eight tickets and take anybody,” he told JIS News.“But, if there are people buying large pools of tickets under some of the packages offered, we will know that people’s generosity only goes so far,”Mr. Jones said.He acknowledged that the ICC CWC 2007 was still trying to find a balance between preventing outright commercial transactions and persons making genuine purchases on behalf of family members and friends.Ticket prices range from US$10 to $40 for each of the four warm-up matches at the Trelawny Multipurpose Stadium, while US$15 to US$100 for the group stage matches. For the semi-final, prices are as low as US$50 and as high as $130. For the final in Barbados, prices are between US$100 and $300.

first_imgFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Persons in Montego Bay and its environs seeking legal information are being encouraged to attend a Legal Aid Day on Saturday, September 25, at the Montego Bay Civic Centre Dome, commencing at noon.Executive Director of the Legal Aid Council, Hugh Faulkner, explained that while indepth advice will not be available, persons will get information on a variety of subjects during the two-hour event.“We are inviting members of the public to come for free legal information, so persons who have questions, for example, on land matters, that is, persons who occupy land and are without the requisite title can come and get information as to the steps they can take to regularise their holdings. There will also be attorneys giving information on commencing child custody and child maintenance matters,” Mr. Faulkner noted.The event, which is being organised by the Council, which falls under the Ministry of Justice, will feature presentations from the newly appointed Head of Independent Commission of Investigations, Terrence Williams and a number of organisations. These include the National Housing Trust (NHT), Land Administration and Management Programme (LAMP), Dispute Resolution Foundation, the Jamaica Intellectual Property Office (JIPO) and the Administrator General’s Department. A question and answer session will follow the presentations.The legal disciplines to be covered include employment, criminal law, restorative justice, landlord-tenant relationship, domestic violence and personal injury.Mr. Faulkner told JIS News that he is expecting a large turnout, as there will be no cost.“We are hoping that persons who had been hesitant to approach lawyers because of the cost involved will take this opportunity to access information that will be available. Sometimes when people take the legal route, you minimise disputes and conflicts. When people know what to do, problems that seem insurmountable you will find that there are legal remedies available to you. This is an attempt for the man in the street to come in and get information,” he said.The Legal Aid Council is the body established by the Legal Aid Act, to administer and supervise legal aid across the island.

Ryan Zinke, a former Republican state legislator from Whitefish, announced his candidacy for the U.S. House on Monday, taking aim at a seat currently occupied by GOP Rep. Steve Daines.Zinke grew up in Whitefish but made the announcement in Billings, drawing on his family’s eastern Montana roots and his longtime Flathead Valley tenancy as a trope for the statesmanship he’ll bring to Congress.“All too often we’ve seen our government divided, just look at the recent government shutdown and the impasse between Republicans and Democrats,” Zinke said. “Montana needs someone in Washington who can help to unite the parties, work towards common-sense solutions, and restore our fundamental value of American exceptionalism.”Having expressed interest in Montana’s lone House seat for months, Zinke’s formal announcement did not come as a surprise. Daines is expected to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Max Baucus but has not declared candidacy.In addition to Zinke, three Republicans have indicated they will run for the House seat if Daines decides to run for Senate – former Secretary of State Brad Johnson, of Helena; Sen. Matt Rosendale, of Glendive; and former state senator Corey Stapleton, of Billings.Still, all eyes are on Daines, the first-term congressman who recently said he’ll wait until 2014 to announce whether he’ll run for the Senate seat being vacated by Baucus, the six-term incumbent who decided to retire in April.Daines finished the third quarter of the year with $1.14 million in his campaign account, ostensibly as 2014 re-election fund for the U.S. House race.Zinke, a third-generation Montanan, served as a U.S. Navy SEAL from 1985 to 2008, retiring with the rank of Commander. During his career as a SEAL, he served as a member of the United States Naval Special Warfare Development Group, better known as SEAL Team Six. He served as a state senator representing Whitefish from 2009 to 2011, and was the lieutenant governor candidate on Neil Livingstone’s unsuccessful bid for governor in 2012.“I look forward to the opportunity to continue to engage Montana citizens in a discussion about the future of our great country,” Zinke said.last_img read more
