facilities in South East

As the National Traveller Accommodation Consultative Committee (NTACC) convenes in Waterford on today Wednesday, 22nd February to meet with representatives of its local counterparts (LTACCs) in the area, five local Traveller groups are organising a small protest outside Waterford City Hall to highlight the ongoing Traveller accommodation crisis in the five counties of the South-East.

The current structures for delivery – with its 5-year Traveller Accommodation Programmes (TAPs) - have been in place since the late 90s, following the passing of the Housing (Traveller Accommodation) Act, 1998. Over the past 18 years these structures have failed to deliver on badly needed Traveller accommodation. The reality is one of measly implementation of TAPs, with insufficient targets for accommodation provision to start with. While detailed needs assessments, leading to proper accommodation

Payers Get Important Advice from Revenue

Revenue’s compliance programme is carried out under the “Code of Practice for Revenue Audit and other Compliance Interventions” (the Code). There are changes to this Code, so we are writing to all self-assessed taxpayers who filed their 2015 Income Tax Return, to make sure they know how to correct errors or omissions in any tax return they have filed. These letters will issue over the next week or so.

Revenue routinely conducts a wide range of checks to ensure that returns are filed, and that they are correct, and, in fact, most tax returns are correct and complete. If taxpayers’ returns are correct, they do not need to take any action.

However, if a taxpayer needs to make a correction, it is important to remember that there are very significant advantages available if they take action before

The Report of the Boundary Review Committee to the Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government has recommended that the

Minister should extend the Boundary of Waterford City and County Council into County Kilkenny by including the entire Electoral area of Kilculliheen and those parts of the Electoral Area of Aglish and Dunkitt contained within the Area of Interest that lie south of the N25 bypass.

This would mean a population of 4,500 would be incorporated into the Waterford area and would likely lead to an increase of one councillor in Waterford Metropolitan

District and a reduction of two councillors in the Piltown Municipal District of Kilkenny County Council. This would lead to a reconfiguration of all of the Municipal Districts within Kilkenny County.

The Report has been greeted warmly by

South East Patient Advocacy Group is calling on Fianna Fáil to gather cross party support for Private Member’s Motion to implement 24/7 cardiac care at UHW

The South East Patient Advocacy Group (SEPAG) has officially called on Fianna Fáil to put down a Private Member's Motion to fulfil their pre-election promise to deliver 24/7 cardiac care at University Hospital Waterford (UHW).

The Group is demanding that this be done without any further political posturing or delaying tactics. SEPAG understands Fianna Fáil has the power to do this and they understand that, with cross-party support, this would almost certainly guarantee the delivery of this crucial life-saving service to the 500,000 people in the South East.

SEPAG says it cannot allow the calls
