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

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

    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 …
