The Guild had a poignant talk on Monday 13th February from Ruth Murray a quilter with Hearts Creations in Butlerstown on the Bonnets Project which was set up in

memory of 304 women convicts from Waterford who were transported to

Tasmania in the 17 - 18th Century.

Each bonnet was embroidered with the woman’s name and the name of the

transportation ship and they are part of a bigger project called Roses from the Heart which started in Tasmania. We were given the details of age and occupation of the women we were remembering as well as the reason for their sentencing. It was going back on a time in history which was very harsh and a lot of discussion took place at the meetings.

The bonnets are now part of the exhibition in the Central Library in Waterford. A talk in the Granville Hotel

The phony election

Although everyone in the country knows that there is to be an election between Leo Varadkar and Simon Coveney for the position of leader of Fine Gael, and de facto Taoiseach, as soon as the present incumbent Enda Kenny announces the date of his departure, we are supposed to believe that there is no active campaigning going on at this present moment in time. That is according to Simon Coveney who has repeatedly said that since the Taoiseach has not announced his resignation he is not campaigning for the job and is solely focused on the work that he has as the Minister for Housing.

Exactly how gullible does the man think that the people of Ireland are? Campaigning for this job has been going on for a long time and it is only now that we are finally

It is beginning to look increasingly likely that there will be an all-out bus strike across the country as the workers and management of Bus Eireann cannot come to any agreement over the future direction over the company. Talks have just broken down at the Work Place Relations Committee between the two sides and unless there is some sort of last minute breakthrough it seems as if the workers in the company will be out on strike in the very near future. SIPTU has already said that they have ordered their strike posters and banners for the action. No specific date has been given as yet so there will, it seems, be some time for commuters to plan alternate arrangements.

However for those who do not have any alternatives other than public transport the forthcoming strike will be a difficult time

The Long Goodbye!

Political obituaries are usually written after the body has taken it's last breath. However, with Taoiseach Enda Kenny it seems that his political career was just about breathing long before his colleagues had him dead and buried. Although no one, least of all the Taoiseach himself, has come and said it yet, Enda Kenny's premiership ended last week with a truly awful performance in the Dáil where some members of the Opposition were calling for his head while his own party seemed to be wondering what on earth was going on. The one thing that was clear after his performance regarding what he did or didn't know and when he did or didn't known know about the Garda Whistleblower's case, was that he had effectively ended his own political career. It was such an inept performance of classic

The proposed inclusion of an extra 4,500 people from South Kilkenny into the Waterford area seems to have upset quite a lot of people and no doubt it will continue to do so for quite some time. There is one thing that should be clear to nearly every person who is concerned about this is that if it is to happen it will not happen for a very very long time. If at all. There are so many proposals from various bodies and institutions, whether on the recommendation of independent or vested interests, each and every day here in this country that never are put into practice that you sometimes wonder how anything gets done at all in Ireland. And with this particular recommendation you just get the feeling it is going to go the same way. Rivalry between our

Search for surviving D Day veterans for Remembrance tour to Normandy

Dear Editor,

I am Head of Travel for the travel arm of the Royal British Legion, Remembrance Travel, and I'm currently on a mission to find every single surviving D Day veteran. The Treasury is enabling a series of free-of-charge tours for D Day veterans to return to Normandy and pay their respects to their fallen comrades. The tours are being funded by the Treasury from LIBOR fines, and will enable a D Day veteran to return with a family member and carer on a six-night tour.

The 2017 tours will take place in March, April, May and September and will give Normandy veterans - now mostly in their 90s - the chance to revisit the Normandy beaches, cemeteries and memorials. The tours will be accompanied by a medic and a guide

A County Waterford man has been appointed to the board of Foras na Gaeilge, the key funding body for the Irish language sector. Conor McGuinness, who lives in the Waterford Gaeltacht, is from Dungarvan and was appointed to the all-Ireland body at a recent meeting of the North South Ministerial Council.

Conor McGuinness said: “It is a great honour and a privilege to be appointed to such an important body. Foras na Gaeilge is the statutory organisation tasked with promoting the Irish language throughout the whole island of Ireland, and is the key funder for the Irish language sector.

“The Irish language and the Irish language community is at a crossroads in many respects. On one hand it is growing and strengthening. Recent surveys show public attitudes to the language remain overwhelmingly positive, and more and more parents are seeking to educate

Travel chaos as strike likely to go ahead

With the Bus Eireann strike for February 20th looking as if it will go ahead it seems that the workers in that particular section of the C.I.E. company will get the overwhelming support from their co-workers in Bus Eireann and Irish Rail. This will mean that public transport in the country will effectively come to a standstill next week. Considering that some bus stations share the same facilities between Bus Eireann and Dublin Bus it is understandable that some people would be loathe to pass a picket that is being manned by people that they work alongside day by day.

The situation in regards to school buses coming out on strike is also up in the air at the moment but it looks that publicly operated school buses will eventually also come out on

There will be many flippant comments about the Government's decision to go ahead with the introduction of medicinal cannabis for use in certain circumstances but that will not diminish the real benefit that it will have for many people. Unlike regular cannabis, medicinal cannabis is manufactured so that it does not give a high but works on pain alone and is also particularly good for treating those with severe epilepsy. It will be some time before medicinal cannabis is available in Ireland but the fact that it is coming can only be good news.
