Brexit Anniversary

It is now nearly one year since the United Kingdom voted to leave the EU and since then there has been a lot of speculation but very little leg work done on what exact shape Brexit is going to take. There was a time, when Brexit first became a word, (one that even a four year old could hold a conversation about now), that the whole issue of the U.K. leaving the EU was one that very few people could envisage. Now that it has come to pass, people know what it might entail, but very few people actually know what it will actually entail other than some amorphous idea about the U.K. leaving the EU.

Brexit has generated a lot of hot air but no one actually knows what it will mean. We think we know what it might

The death of Thomas Power, Bellelake, Woodstown who died from a cardiac arrest in the back of an ambulance last Sunday afternoon was avoidable. The lack of 24/7 cardiac care which has been promised and pledged for the past number of years, is proof positive that if the facilities had been available his life could have been saved. Thomas admitted himself to UHW’s Emergency Department just before midday and by 12.154 he was being rushed by ambulance to Cork. At about 12.47 just outside Dungarvan Thomas went into Cardia arrest. Depite the valiant efforts of the medial team, he could not be revived and was pronounced dead on arrival at Cork University H ospital.

His sister Catherine rang RTE’s Liveline on Monday afternoon last to convey the deep anger and frustration of her family about her brother’s death. She said "If

2016 Census continues to confirm damning Waterford figures!

Dear editor

As the 2016 Census results continue to trickle through, from the Central Statistics Office (CSO), we still have a huge void and focused action is urgently needed just to get parity with the national averages. I’m wondering just what our elected Government representatives have been doing. In terms of creating an environment whereby the people of Waterford have a chance of real, meaningful, well paid employment.

The latest CSO, 2016 Census update quantifies that at the time of the survey, County Waterford had an unemployment rate of 15.4%, compared to a national average of 12.9%. In addition, when the Census was taken, Waterford had 53,918 people employed, or a labour force participation rate of 58.8%. This compares to 61.4% for the State overall. It is also interesting to note that in the subsequent

The death of a young Waterford farmer, Thomas Power, Bellelake, Woodstown, Co. Waterford who went into a fatal cardiac arrest in an ambulance bringing him to Cork University Hospital on Sunday last has caused widespread sadness and outrage throughout the South East.

It is understood that Mr. Power drove himself to Waterford University Hospital while undergoing a cardiac arrest. As it was a weekend and no 24/7 cardiology care is available over the weekend a decision was taken to take him by ambulance to Cork University Hospital. It is understood that outside Dungarvan Mr. Power took a turn for the worse and despite the best efforts of medical personnel in the ambulance he passed away.

His sister was on RTE’s Liveline on Monday afternoon and blamed the HSE for the lack of a 24/7 cath lab in University Hospital Waterford for his

David Cullinane, Sinn Féin TD for Waterford, said that the HSE has questions to answer over primary PCI at University Hospital Waterford and its refusal to accept the reality of the South East population figures and travel times to Cork.

Deputy Cullinane said:

"First of all, let me convey my condolences to the family of Thomas Power, a young man who died in an ambulance on the way to Cork because the cardiac unit in Waterford was closed.

"It is sad and shocking but unfortunately we knew that something like this was going to happen once the HSE took the decision to effectively shelve the Higgins Report and treat Waterford as an adjunct of Cork.

"Half a million people are not an adjunct.

"The sleight of hand and playing with numbers that we saw with the Herity Report was always going to cost lives.

"We need

Another Fine Mess

It had always seemed as if Leo Varadkar was going to be the winner of the race to lead Fine Gale but until all the votes are counted and everything is all present and correct you can never be sure of anything.

But on Friday eventing all was revealed and Leo Varadkar stepped up onto the podium a winner. He didn't lead the race in all of the different categories and in one of the most surprising turn ups he did significantly worse than his opponent. In the section where the ordinary members of the party got to vote Leo Varadkar only got a small minority of the vote. It seems at least that he is not the firm favourite when it comes to the ordinary members of the party whereas as Simon Coveney obviously was. But the new

It seems that the only time that you hear about charities these days is when there is another crisis or scandal within the whole industry and another group has to come out and try and deal with whatever is happening this week. It the St. John of God's Charity that seems to be in trouble this week and this time it is over pensions. There is some toing and froing over whether the payments they made were right or wrong but the real upshot is that the charity sector in Ireland is taking another battering. Those trying to collect much needed money for this particular group have already said that it is just getting harder and harder to put a case before the public as to why they should donate much needed money. It seems that the public have reached

    Paradise papersOne of the most surprising things about the release of the copious amounts of tax details of some of the richest people on the planet wasn't the names of the people involved but the fact that three of them were actors from Mrs. Brown's Boys. Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
