Waterford ICSA is renewing its appeal for farmers with any surplus fodder to make it available to those in need.

Munster and Waterford ICSA chair John Halley said, "At this stage everything helps, so even someone with three or four bales to spare would be doing a great service for a farmer in dire need. No one foresaw the fodder shortage lasting this long and we must continue to do what we can to help those struggling to feed their livestock."

Waterford farmer and chair of the ICSA beef committee, Edmond Phelan, said, "The farming community of Waterford must come together until the weather picks up and this crisis is behind us. Many farmers have already made whatever they can spare available to neighbours and it is important that we keep that effort going while the shortage continues."

Any ICSA member who needs

Fine Gael TD for Waterford, Paudie Coffey, has welcomed the news that Helping Hands Adoption Mediation Agency (HHAMA) has been awarded a licence to facilitate adoptions from Vietnam for Irish applicants.

"This is great news for Waterford families who have been involved in the adoption process for a number of years now. Since taking office two years ago, the Minister for Children, Frances Fitzgerald, has made reforming the adoption process in this country a major priority of her Ministry. We are seeing real progress in this area which will hopefully lead to a positive conclusion for all involved.

"Helping Hands has been facilitating adoption in this country for many years, allowing couples to start or expand their families through adoption. Over the last number of years,

Three members of Waterford City Council have called for their fellow councillors to put an end to the unjust situation that a man who has served 34 years on a council has never been honoured with the opportunity to be Mayor. Councillors Dick Roche, Sean Reinhard and John Hearne have said that because Councillor Gary Wyse decided to leave the pact recently it means that Fine Gael and Labour are no longer the leaders of a majority voting pact and for the first time in years the Mayoral Election in June is not a foregone conclusion. The three councillors believe that the candidate that Fine Gael and labour will put forward will be someone who is for the amalgamation of Waterford City and County Council and that the majority of Councillors on the Council are very much opposed to the

Last year, the committee of Portlaw Community Alert Group produced an information card listing contact numbers for emergency services in the area, including a mobile number for our local Gardaí.

In recent times due to changes in the Garda structures of the area, there is a possibility that the mobile contact number may occasionally not be answered.

At a recent Community Alert Committee meeting, these concerns were brought to the attention of senior Gardaí who were in attendance. It was agreed that the best option now is to call Tramore Garda Station at 051 391620 or 051 381333 as Tramore Garda Station is manned 24 hours. People can of course still call 999 or 112 also. The Gardaí in Tramore will then be able to contact whoever is on duty in this area and advise them accordingly.

The committee would like to thank
