On Tuesday 24th January 2017 at 6.30pm in The Grandville Hotel, Waterford an open evening will be held for the re-establishment of the Waterford branch of Network Ireland.

2017 looks set to be another busy year for Tramore-based Senator Grace O’Sullivan. The Green Party politician, who was elected to the Seanad last April, has been working hard since taking up her new position.

“It’s been non-stop, but as a mother, carer, environmentalist and lifelong activist I’m used to having a busy life. It’s a real honour to be where I am now though, I’m doing everything within my power to highlight social, environmental and other important issues, and to be a voice for the people of Waterford, the region, and indeed the country.”

Grace will be continuing to work both individually and as part of the Seanad’s Civil Engagement Group, in which she joins a number of other like- minded Senators whose primary focus is the most vulnerable in society. She will be working with all parties, the government and

SEPAG's Response To John Halligan's Statement

Responding to John Halligan’s statement regarding the implementation of a mobile Cath Lab. the South East Patient’s Advocacy Group has issued the following response:

John Halligan has stated in the Examiner newspaper on Friday 6th January, that there is talk of a mobile cath lab unit to be implemented at UHW which will “placate his constituents."

Unfortunately, a mobile cath lab is not going to “placate" us ... whilst it may help reduce the waiting lists for routine cardiology procedures at UHW we were promised the implementation of a 24/7 Cardiac Care Service like every other regional hospital in this country has and we won't be “placated" until that is what we get!

A mobile unit is only a temporary solution to a permanent

Minister for Training, Skills and Innovation John Halligan TD has rejected accusations that he is attempting to ‘fudge’ the need for a second cath lab at University Hospital Waterford by proposing a mobile cath lab on the grounds of the hospital. In a statement to the media, Minister Halligan said it was actually consultants in the south east, and not he, who had come up with the proposal, in a bid to urgently address the stagnant waiting lists at UHW.

“This proposal was devised by cardiac consultants in the south east as a counter-proposal to the HSE’s solution to address the waiting lists – which was to outsource patients to Cork. These consultants, who are based in Waterford, Wexford and South Tipperary, presented this option to Minister for Health Simon Harris themselves at a meeting in November and the Minister agreed

Senator O’Sullivan said today: “The EPA’s air quality monitoring service has classed air quality in Waterford City as poor for the last few days. This coincides with the cold weather we’ve been having this week. The EPA advises that people with lung or heart problems should reduce strenuous physical activity, particularly outdoors, and especially if they are experiencing deteriorating symptoms.

Minister for Training, Skills and Innovation John Halligan TD has praised Waterford’s ‘innovators of the future’ who are taking part in the BT Young Scientist and Technology Exhibition at the RDS this week.

Thirteen projects from Waterford’s Our Lady of Mercy Secondary School, De La Salle College, Gaelcholáiste Phort Láirge, Árdscoil Na Mara, Newtown School and Blackwater Community College are being showcased at this year’s event, which Minister Halligan described as a ‘fantastic platform for breaking down the perception amongst teenagers that STEM is too difficult’.

“From climate change at Bunmahon beach, to the impact of mobile phone withdrawal from a group of local teenagers, to an app that will combat social anxiety and stress, the Waterford projects are interesting, they’re accessible and they’re very relative to the world around our local teenagers", the Minister noted.
