Minister for Training, Skills and Innovation John Halligan T.D. has urged Tesco to enter meaningful negotiations with Mandate to find a resolution to the escalating industrial action at its stores all over the country, after it emerged that workers at the Poleberry, Waterford store received a warning of disciplinary action yesterday.

The eight workers are pre-1996 employees, according to Minister Halligan, who began travelling to support picketing workers at Tesco, Bray after strike action was rejected by a narrow margin at Tesco Poleberry last week:

“Last night, some received a registered letter warning that their absence from work was unauthorised and the company is to conduct a disciplinary investigation. These workers were told in the letter that there could be sanctions up to and including dismissal, which is a deeply upsetting message for any worker to receive.

“Having met union leaders Gerry Light

Following remedial works undertaken by Irish Water and the recording of satisfactory results by the HSE, the boil water notice for 372 customers using the Kilmacthomas water supply has now been lifted with immediate effect. The boil water notice was put in place as a precautionary measure due to potential contamination issues as a result of agricultural runoff. All customers were temporarily switched to a neighbouring supply, while the reservoir and mains supply pipes were thoroughly cleaned and flushed out.

Customers can now resume the normal use of their water for drinking, food preparation and brushing teeth.

Welcoming the lifting of the Boil Water Notice, Regional Operations Manager, Katherine Walshe said,

“Irish Water would like to thank customers for their patience while we worked to address the causes behind this boil water notice. We greatly regret any inconvience caused during this time. Irish

An estimate 12,173,606 pancakes were devoured in Ireland on Shrove Tuesday despite one third of the population (33%) not knowing the meaning of the day, according to new research commissioned by Siúcra. The findings have been released to coincide with the tastiest day in the culinary calendar as Siúcra encouraged the nation to get their pans out and whip up a batch from scratch.

The age-old tradition of eating pancakes on Shrove Tuesday, commonly known as Pancake Tuesday, has been celebrated for centuries as a way of using forbidden foods before the fasting period of Lent. The survey revealed that a lack of awareness of the real meaning behind the feast day didn’t stop the majority (67%) of the population marking the occasion, with the average person enjoying 2.55 pancakes.

An impressive 70% of the population made their pancakes from scratch with

Importing a car into Ireland

Question

What are the rules about buying a car in the UK and bringing it back to Ireland?

Answer

In general, all vehicles brought into Ireland are subject to Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT) and must be registered. If you have imported a vehicle, you must pay VRT and receive the vehicle's registration certificate showing that you have paid VRT.

If you live abroad and are moving to live in Ireland, you may be eligible for a VRT exemption. Even if you are not required to pay VRT, you must still register your vehicle when you move to Ireland. In certain cases, foreign-registered vehicles may be imported into Ireland temporarily by a non-resident without the requirement to pay VRT or register the vehicle.

You register the car and pay the VRT at a National Car Testing Service (NCTS) centre. You can get
