On Tuesday 18th July Waterford Micro Business Network and Waterford Walls came together for a wonderful blend of business and art. The exciting event, The Art of Business, started in the Parlour Vintage Tearoom, with Sarah Jane Hatton, Visual Media & Event Management at Waterford Walls speaking about their success and how they are bringing vibrancy, colour, and beauty to the city. Walking shoes were required as Sarah Jane took MBN members on a guided art trail which was not only a source of inspiration but an opportunity for networking.

Waterford Walls has brought some much needed colour to Waterford and since its launch in 2015 it has rejuvenated the city. “The majority of funding we raise is due to the hard work of our team as well as the support of

An airport runway is not the typical place to find runners but for a brief time on Saturday September 16th, the runway at Waterford Airport will be teeming with precisely such people for The Dara Fitzpatrick Memorial Run. The run is a 5k run for charity on the runway used by Dara for ten years while based with Rescue 117 at Waterford Airport.

Many people in Waterford and the Southeast Region fondly remember Dara, so we couldn't think of a better way to honour her memory as well as doing something very positive for charity. Dara made a big impact on this community and we want to make sure her memory lives on. The two charities are Touching Hearts and South Eastern Mountain Rescue Association.

Speaking at the launch and opening of registration for the run, one of the event's organisers Ray

David Cullinane, Sinn Féin TD for Waterford, said today that there has been a 57% rise in emergency ambulance calls since 2014, yet health services in the south east continue to be understaffed.

Deputy Cullinane said:

"Figures released to me by the HSE show that the number of serious ambulance responses in the south east has gone from 15,494 in 2014 to 24,290 in 2016.

"This is an increase of 8,796, or 24 a day in two years."

"The lack of funding to match the increased demand is reflected in the drop in response times.

"In 2014 around 61% of life-threatening calls had an ambulance at the scene within 19 minutes. In 2016 that figure was 56%.

"For serious, non-life threatening calls, the figure dropped from 62% to 54%.

"This is at a time when the HSE is pursuing a policy for University Hospital Waterford that does

The Waterford based Coast Guard Helicopter R117 has located and recovered two casualties from an overturned recreational vessel approximately 165 miles West SouthWest of Mizen Head, County Cork. The incident was co-ordinated by the Coast Guard Rescue Coordination Centre in Valentia. The alarm was raised by the activation of an EPIRB (Emergency Position Indicating Radio Beacon). The two casualties were successfully airlifted on board Rescue 117 earlier this afternoon and are being transferred to Tralee Hospital.

Speaking about the rescue Coast Guard's SAR Manager Gerard O'Flynn: “It highlights that if you can raise the alarm and stay afloat then you stand a very good chance of being rescued. I also want to compliment the Helicopter crew and Valentia on a very successful operation and thank the Air Corps for their support.”

It is believed the casualties had been trying to row across

David Cullinane, Sinn Féin TD for Waterford, said that the proposed move by management at Waterford Airport to cut staff cover for emergency and search and rescue should not be allowed to happen.

Deputy Cullinane said:

"I have received information that Waterford airport is to lay off four fire-fighters and security personnel, a move that will have a significant impact on search and rescue for the south east.

"It will also have significant implications for emergency cover at the airport itself.

"According to some sources within the airport, the management are proposing to 'step in' to fire-fighter roles in order to keep the service staffed at minimum standards.

"If this turns out to be the case it will be completely unacceptable.

"The government subsidises the emergency helicopter at Waterford airport so this is not simply a matter for the airport's management but for the Minister as

Jutting out to sea at the tip of the Hook Peninsula on the corner of Ireland’s Ancient East, there is there is no better place to take in the vast seascapes and glorious colours of Ireland’s Celtic Sea according to the lighthouse manager Ann Waters. “Watching the sun go down at the tip of the Hook Peninsula is a memorable experience.

Mount Melleray Abbey on the sunny slopes of Knockmealdown is recognised, to quote Dungarvan poet and songstress, Mai O’Higgins as a ‘Little Heaven of the Mountains’. And so it is, peaceful, quiet, contemplative and, season after season, consistently colourful and inspiring.

Through its mountain terrain, woods, fields, lawns, buildings and the imposing and historic Monastery itself, there is an endless stream of inspiration to be tapped. So much so, that a local photographer has decided to capture all of those colours, all of those moods and as much of the serenity and solitude as she could and has published the result in four magnificent volumes.

So, Mount Melleray Abbey is proud to announce the publication of that set of four books collectively entitled ‘In Search of Beauty’ depicting in pictures and words ‘The Four Seasons of Mt. Melleray’.

They will be displayed to
