The aim of the Iverk Show when first started in 1826 by the 4th Earl of Bessborough was to encourage everyone involved in food production to up their game and produce better quality products.

That aim was achieved quickly as it is reported that few people in the Barony of Iverk lost their lives to the famine.

Now in 2017 the committee have the same aims – to encourage everyone involved from ‘Field to Fork’ produce the best they can. When you visit this year’s show you can experience the whole food production chain.

When you enter the show grounds you will see the fruit and vegetable classes. Some of the exhibits are amazing – the length of the carrots and parsnips, the long straight runner beans, the beautiful potatoes and fruit and the perfectly presented peas and marrows. These have been lovingly

Fianna Fáil TD for Waterford, Mary Butler has said that the people of Waterford have been let down by Minister Simon Harris’ failure to address the chronic waiting times for basic ENT and orthopaedic appointments and procedures.

Deputy Butler was commenting after receiving new information from the HSE that shows that 680 patients are on UHW’s inpatient and day case waiting list for ear, nose or throat procedures.

"This is, in and of itself, a terrible example of Fine Gael’s failure in health, but the fact that nearly one in four. 150 people, of these patients are waiting over 12 months should shock Minister Harris into action now.

“I am very concerned that the HSE believes that hitting a 15 month maximum waiting time for inpatient day case patients is an acceptable timeframe.

“Many of those who are waiting inordinate amounts of times for

Una Dunphy of People Before Profit has condemned the 'corporate trick' to hike up bin charges.

From September, the Government plans to allow waste disposal companies to charge by weight. They claim this will increase the use of recycling facilities but the real reason is to increase private profits. The new charges have not been announced yet but they are only going one way, and that is up. The government compromise with Fianna Fáil will not stop the price hikes.

In a statement Ms Dunphy said:

Waste disposal is best achieved through local councils. We favour public collections paid for out of progressive taxation. This would be less costly, more efficient and better for the environment.

Privatisation has been a disaster. It has meant ever-increasing costs, with some companies increasing their charges on an annual basis. Last year the government lifted a ban on
