The Waterford Country Market has been in existence for over 50 years. As time has gone by we have had to move premises occasionally but since the 1970s we have opened every Friday at St. Olaf's Hall behind City Square just down from the Friary between 8am-1pm.

Over the years many producers have come and gone but we still have two that have been with us almost all that time. Mrs. Dunphy (who is now 90 years old) still comes every week with her fresh laid duck and chicken eggs as does Mrs. Power, who although not quite so advanced in years, still comes with her freshly baked breads and cakes. Both of these ladies are rightly proud of their produce and enjoy meeting their regular customers as well as any new faces that come through the door.

Not all our producers

Sunday working

Question: I am currently unemployed and getting Jobseeker's Benefit. I work in a bar on Sundays and I don't work any other days. I hear that the rules about working on a Sunday are changing. What is the change?

Answer: Since 20 February 2013 Sunday working is taken into account when calculating the amount of Jobseeker's Benefit or Jobseeker's Allowance to be paid. Any work on Sunday was previously ignored when looking at your pattern of employment and people who worked only on Sundays were considered to be fully unemployed. That is no longer the case.

To get either Jobseeker's Benefit or Jobseeker's Allowance you must be unemployed. However, you do not have to be fully unemployed. You can work for some days (although you may not work for a part of any day for which you are claiming a jobseeker's

Mitchell to bow out in 2014

Fine Gael MEP Gay Mitchell has said the constant travelling between Dublin, Brussels and Strasbourg was a big factor his decision not to stand for re-election in next year's European Parliament elections.

However the 61-year-old Dublin MEP has insisted that he is not retiring from working life and that he will definitely keep contributing in either a voluntary capacity or in public service after June 2014.

"I want people to know that I will continue to work hard for my country and my community. I'd like to give something back, maybe by working as a volunteer," he said.

Mr Mitchell will leave the European Parliament next year after ten years as an MEP, before which he served as Dublin TD for 26 years.

"I believe this is a good time to allow new candidates to emerge, and I'm making

Crystal bowl designed by ex-Waterford Crystal master engraver presented to U.S. President Obama by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD

It was a proud moment in Waterford's esteemed history of glass manufacturing as, this year, the traditional bowl of shamrock presented to the US President on St. Patrick's Day originated in the Crystal County.

Sean Egan of Sean Egan Art Glass had the great honour of designing and crafting the stunning piece, entitled the "Gathering Bowl", which was presented to Barack Obama by An Taoiseach Enda Kenny TD on Tuesday, March 19th, following the traditional St. Patrick's Day celebrations.

The first presentation of a bowl of shamrock to a U.S. President took place in 1953, when President Eisenhower accepted the gift from Ambassador Hearne. The first Taoiseach to present shamrock

Q. What's the toughest instrument to play in anybody's orchestra? Let's hope you're "first water" enough to know.

A. "Second fiddle," quipped famed conductor and composer Leonard Bernstein, says Anu Garg in "A Word a Day." In an orchestra, the concertmaster is the "first chair violinist who sounds the notes from which all the others tune their instruments and take their cues when playing without a conductor. So the second violin (second fiddle) occupies a subordinate position. Obviously, Garg explains, Bernstein wasn't "commenting on the skill required to strum second violin in an orchestra but on the difficulty for most of us to be in the secondary role."

Such "ordinal language," as Garg terms it, expresses "the deep human need to arrange things in order, to sort, classify and enumerate them." Here are a few other

preventing flea problems. Fleas are a common parasite affecting domestic pets such as dogs, cats and rabbits, but like some parasites, they are easier to prevent than to get rid of. Fleas are highly adapted, and can survive away from their host animal for up to 4 months. They actually spend the majority of their life cycle away from their host, and can jump on to your pet, feed on their blood after biting them, and jump off again to lay their eggs in the pet's environment, i.e. in their bedding, on carpets

Therapie Clinic Athlone has told us that the waiting list for their fat freezing treatment has reached new lengths after TV3's Xpose showed their interest! Lisa Cannon visited the flagship Therapie Clinic in Dublin last week and did a story on the treatment, sending demand soaring!

If you haven't already heard about this breakthrough new treatment, it's called Cooltec. It's non-invasive and works by freezing and breaking down fat cells which are then naturally eliminated by the body.

Belly fat, back fat, abdominal fat, and/or stubborn fat on the thighs, hips or buttocks can be reduced by up to 40% after just 1 treatment.

Cooltec is particularly effective at shaping and contouring the waist, giving a lean, toned look. Results can be seen in as little as 15 days after treatment and the fat cell reduction continues for an amazing 3 months.

One client,
