Fianna Fáil TD for Waterford, Mary Butler has called on older people and those eligible for the Winter Fuel Allowance to consider applying for a lump sum payment instead of the normal weekly payment.

At present, eligible recipients received €22.50 per week from the Department of Social Protection from October to April when they collect their pension or other social welfare payment.

“As part of changes to the scheme, following lobbying by a variety of older persons’ organisations, the payment can be received in two lump sums, €292.50 in October and the remaining €292.50 in January.

“This is a very positive development as it will allow people bulk buy fuel and receive discounts associated with bulk buying.

“Equally, it will allow people with oil heating to purchase a large supply in advance of winter and take some of the pressure off in terms of

Waterford's Unpaid Carers

The Irish Red Cross is calling for Waterford to celebrate its unpaid Carers by nominating them for the 2017 Irish Red Cross Carer of the Year Award. The award is open to any member of the public currently providing voluntary care.

Trade union Unite, which organises English Language Teachers, today (Thursday 3 August) challenged Marketing English in Ireland, the body representing English Language Schools, to defend the low wages paid to teachers. The call follows an analysis of the Institute’s own data revealing that many workers in the sector end up earning less than the Living Wage of €11.70 per hour.

Commenting, Unite Regional Organiser Roy Hassey said:

“Unite has long argued that the English Language Teaching sector is thriving on the backs of workers, and now we find that the industry body, Marketing English in Ireland, has essentially admitted poverty pay rates.

“According to MEI’s own figures published in March, the sector employs 1,000 teachers and 550 administrative staff on a full time basis, increasing to 2,000 teachers and 1,000 administrative staff during the summer months, while the total gross wage bill is

Cllr Eddie Mulligan is at pains to point out that the City’s future development is not just down to one individual Councillor’s “Solo run!”

He was commenting after hearing Cllr John Cummins speak about the proposed growth of the City on North Quays SDZ.

According to Cllr Mulligan, “We are told that a figure of €61,500,000 is required from Government and this is currently being finalised. Cllr Cummins, who from listening to last week, is giving the distinct impression that he has a greater inside track with the Executive on the North Quay’s than the other 31 Councillors. We are ALL working together to make this happen!

He then went on to speak about all the necessary infrastructural works required within the immediate vicinity of the North Quays SDZ. There was absolutely no mention of the fundamental need for a sustainable, residential and

Cllr Joe Kelly commenting about the launch of the first ever Public Consultation on Public Sector Reform said “over the years many people and groups have complained about the standard of public service, about how the agencies of the state work or often times how they do not work. Most people agree with the idea of public service reform, but the question is what kind of reform, what do people really want. There is now an opportunity for everyone to feed into this consultation process and air their views.”

2. Innovating for the Future

3. Developing People and Organisations

    Paradise papersOne of the most surprising things about the release of the copious amounts of tax details of some of the richest people on the planet wasn't the names of the people involved but the fact that three of them were actors from Mrs. Brown's Boys. Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
