Deputy Cullinane said: "The HSE has confirmed to me that 10 Inpatient beds were closed in January this year at University Hospital, Waterford’s due to management's inability to recruit sufficient Nursing staff. These bed closures commenced at the end of October,2016.

"Once again we see problems with capacity at University Hospital Waterford linked to either a failure or refusal to hire staff. It is hard not to surmise at this stage

There was big disappointment in Waterford city and county council circles at the decision by An Bord Pleanala to defer a decision on the granting of planning permission to a major commercial development in the Michael Street area of Waterford. The multi-million pound development was set to rejuvenate this part of the city which has a large derelict appearance in the middle of its location. The decision was appealed to An Board Pleanala when Waterford City and County Council granted planning permission subject to conditions.

Former Mayor of Waterford Cllr. John Cummins has said he is very disappointed that An Bord Pleanala have deferred a decision on a major retail development in the heart of Waterford City until 28th February.

“Today I have resigned my position as chairperson of the Board of Management of Holy Cross National School, Tramore, Co Waterford. I have been involved in the running and welfare of the school for over thirty years.

I have made my decision bearing in mind the wishes, and indeed the distress, of the victims of my nephew Bill Kenneally.

Due to a serious illness, I have been housebound for the last three months and I was in hospital in December to undergo an operation. However, when I am in a position to do so, I would very much wish to meet with the victims to hear their views, and to share with them all that I know of events of the past. It is my deep hope that I may be reconciled with them in their immense suffering.

Minister for Training, Skills and Innovation John Halligan T.D. has asked Housing Minister Simon Coveney to re-examine why the new rent pressure zones, limiting annual rent increases to 4%, have not been extended to Waterford.

“I am disappointed – and somewhat surprised – that the Housing Agency, based on data from the Residential Tenancies Board, did not recommend parts of Waterford to be designated as a rent pressure zone”, the Independent Alliance TD commented. “Whilst the scheme is in no way the answer to our rental crisis, it would have at least restricted landlords from making more of the massive rent hikes we have seen in previous years.”

Acknowledging that not all areas in Waterford would have met the criteria of rents being above the national average and annual rent inflation of at least 7per cent for four of the last six
