Fresh from the UK, Australian and US tours of his award-winning show, Selfie (“Dangerously funny”- 0nstageblog.com, New York )

Pat Shortt returns with a brand new show, How’s Tings.

In his inimitable high energy anarchic style of performance Pat brings his unique comic look at every day Irish characters and turns the normal to abnormal. In How’s Tings, Pat introduces us to a variety of new characters. Such as Eugene, the chairman of the local drama committee and every other committee in the parish who shares with us his mundane insight into parish politics and Sr Eucharia with her hilarious look at religious life in small town Ireland.

Minister of State for Training, Skills and Innovation John Halligan T.D. has defended WIT President Willie Donnelly’s reputation of ‘having the interests of Waterford and the Institute at heart’.

Reacting to concerns expressed at the Dáil’s Public Accounts Committee last week regarding possible potential conflicts of interest surrounding the development and sale of spin-out software company FeedHenry, Minister Halligan also warned that any incorrect suggestions of impropriety could have a ‘seriously destabilising effect’ on the Institute at a critical point in its campaign for Technological University status:

“Professor Donnelly’s impact on WIT has been tremendous and his reputation speaks for it itself. Enterprise Ireland (EI), back in 2013, acknowledged that there was then a software industry in Waterford which could not possibly have existed without the exceptional work of the Telecommunications Software & Systems Group (TSSG), under Professor Donnelly.

“Indeed WIT was described

Alternative or complementary?

It’s now over 30 years since I completed my training as a nurse in Jervis St Hospital in Dublin. Back then - we are talking about the mid-eighties - traditional medicine ruled supreme, and there were very few other therapies on offer.

I have the greatest of respect for orthodox medicine, but over time working as a nurse in the health service, I came to realise that it did not have all the answers. It was that realisation - and my own dissatisfaction with the treatments I was receiving for depression in my twenties - that led me to look at alternative therapies. I use the term “alternative” but in the course of my healing journey, I

Following the Minister for Health’s publication of the Health Products Regulatory Authority’s (HPRA) report ‘Cannabis for Medical Use – A Scientific Review’ on 10 February and his announcement that he will establish a Cannabis Access Programme for cannabis-based treatments for qualifying patients, Minister Simon Harris today announces a pivotal step in the progress towards operationalising this initiative.

The HPRA review concluded that a cannabis access programme could include access to cannabis-based therapies for the treatment of patients with:

- Spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis resistant to all standard therapies and interventions whilst under expert medical supervision;

- Intractable nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy, despite the use of standard anti-emetic regimes whilst under expert medical supervision;

- As noted by the HPRA in their review, there is an absence of scientific data demonstrating the effectiveness of cannabis products and the safety of cannabis as

A public meeting to be held in the Granville Hotel on next Thursday 13th April will be addressed by Gino Kenny TD of People Before Profit on his Bill to make medicinal cannabis available for use in treating conditions such as Cancer, Epilepsy, MS and chronic Pain.

The meeting, to be chaired by Una Dunphy of PBP, will also hear from Vera Twomey who recently walked the 260km from her home to the Dáil as a protest against decisions to restrict access to the drug for her daughter Ava, who has a rare form of epilepsy called Dravet’s syndrome, and suffered up to 300 seizures a day before Vera started using a cannabis extract as a medicine for her. Health Minister Simon Harris has refused to authorise access for Ava and continues to criminalise other child and adult patients using cannabis-based

A baby’s temperature range can vary quite widely over time as the part of the brain that controls temperature isn’t fully developed in children. This means their temperature is more likely to go up or down very quickly.

Like so many things, when it comes to a ‘normal’ temperature, every child is different, but generally any temperature above 37.5°C is classed as a fever. However it’s not unusual for children to get a mild fever, but if they have got one, there are lots of ways you can help them feel better.

What causes a high temperature?

A temperature in your child can be caused by the simplest things, even wearing too many layers on a hot day.

When your little one is suffering from a fever, it can be a sign that their body is fighting an infection such as a cold or
