Bank on a real welcome in Corbally’s Shannon Banks

first_imgNewsLocal NewsBank on a real welcome in Corbally’s Shannon BanksBy admin – April 10, 2009 650 Email Advertisement Linkedin Twitter RESIDENTS in the Shannon Banks estate are demanding to be put on the tourist’ trail.According to Labour Councillor Pascal Fitzgerald, they are to put pressure on Clare County Council to erect a sign stating ‘Welcome to Shannon Banks’.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up  There is no prominent sign recognising the estate and motorists can drive past not realising that they have missed their destination.Situated on the River Shannon and bordering on Limerick city, the estate is located on the main Limerick/Killaloe road.Said Cllr. Fitzgerald: “there is a green space fronting the road that would be ideal for such a sign that could be nicely designed and set in the ground”.He added that residents also want all the driveways in the estate signposted.“The Council said this would be done, but so far nothing has happened. This request was made some years ago, and I again spoke to the Director of Services only last week and he said the signs would definitely be replaced.“Its unfair for people coming in looking for an address and there are no names on the driveways. They have to drive around and ask for directions.“I would like to point out that the Council has put up a sign opposite the Shannon Banks estate pointing people to Limerick and Killaloe, which I found amusing – surely people living in the estate know which direction is Limerick and which is Killaloe. This signpost was put up in recent weeks.“Residents are asking how this can be done so fast and their request for proper street signs has so far been ignored”, he added.Local candidates for the upcoming elections have been extremely active in the general Corbally area of late, and has resulted in many improvements.center_img Facebook WhatsApp Print Previous articleTwo detained following pub shootingNext articleArt Gallery ideal for polling -Leddin adminlast_img read more

One authority to govern Limerick-city and county

first_imgWhatsApp NewsLocal NewsOne authority to govern Limerick-city and countyBy admin – September 9, 2010 650 Advertisement Email Twitter City is dead…airport is dying, warns BrosnanA NEW unified Limerick local authority to administer the city and service a population of almost 190,000 people, has been recommended to the government by the Limerick Local Government Committee, whose chairman, Denis Brosnan, did not mince his words when, briefing the media on details of the report, he said: “Limerick needs a regeneration of its city centre more than the four housing estates involved.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Limerick needs a new authority with a new mandate to look after the social issues and that of regeneration, which doesn’t know if its mandate will be renewed in two years.“The city is dead, the airport is dying and so is the region – we are trying to turn it into a region that is going again”.The report estimates that an extension of the city boundary into the city’s suburbs in County Clare and County Limerick would create an administrative area serving 187,000 people, which would make Limerick the third biggest city in the country.Upwards of €20million per annum would be achieved in cost savings through the merging of staffing and administrative structures of both councils and the elimination of duplication and these savings would be used to support the city centre’s business environment by harmonising rates in the city centre and suburbs.The report calls for a new management structure for the Limerick Authority and the acquisition of skills and expertise required to meet Limerick’s challenges.It also stipulates that the new authority will have the resources of the third largest city in the country and service a population of 187,000, and the committee recommends that the mayor of the new authority should be elected for a five year term.Throughout the report the stark reality of the city’s deterioration is highlighted.“The relative deprivation of the city has steadily increased over the past 15 years – it is not surprising that the urban core of Limerick performs poorly in other respects as the increases in levels of deprivation occurred during the latter years of the most sustained period of economic growth that the State has experienced”.Following a continuous decline in the population within the city boundary, it now stands at approximately 52,000. All of the areas of severe deprivation are within the boundary, but, as the report points out, the population of the metropolitan area is approximately 100,000 and contains many affluent suburbs (outside the city boundary).“The exclusion of many of Limerick’s suburbs distorts the city’s statistical profile and this has a damaging impact on Limerick’s reputation and lessens the likelihood of potential investment,”  Mr Brosnan asserts.The issue of the suburbs of Shannon Banks and Westbury being included in the boundary extension, is not a stumbling block, he says.“There is no question of a plebiscite being held in Shannon Banks on this – the housing is built in Limerick city. Nobody can tell me that Shannon Banks is in Clare.“We couldn’t put 97,000 people into the city from Clare but yes, we can do so with the 3,000 in Corbally”.The report recommends that pending the 2014 elections, following the establishment of the new Limerick Authority, a mayor should be elected from the 46 members to serve until the 2014 local elections.Supporting the report’s recommendations, Limerick Chamber president, Kieran MacSweeney, said their one priority is that any changes to the local government structure will deliver a city of sufficient scale to allow it reach its full potential to become a driver of growth throughout the region.“We believe the report delivers this and while we were concerned that combining both authorities would take years, we have been assured that this could happen very quickly if it gets the support of the people and the key stakeholders”.center_img Linkedin Facebook Print Previous articleBoost for small firms in tendering processNext articleHSE and INMO clash on hospital cuts adminlast_img read more

Shannon Airport workers were ‘sold a pup’

first_imgShannon Airport turns €1.3 million profitShannon Airport traffic continues to growby Kathy [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up UNIONS and management at Shannon Airport held discussions this week about seeking voluntary redundancies at the Shannon Group.It is believed that the Group is seeking up to 40 voluntary redundancies.The news comes just days after the airport reported a five per cent increase in passenger numbers this May, and an 18 per cent increase in inbound visitors from its US routesLimerick TD Willie O’Dea says the Government was misleading the public when it promised there would be no job losses ahead of the establishment of the Shannon Group, which merged Shannon Development with the airport.“Clear promises and commitments on jobs were made and now they lie in tatters. Not only were we told there would be no job losses under the Shannon restructuring, we were promised thousands of new jobs,” he said.Deputy O’Dea pointed out that in December 2012, Clare Fine Gael Deputy Joe Carey said the plans for Shannon Airport and Shannon Development had “huge job creation potential”.At the time, Deputy Carey said that “at least 850 jobs will be created at the new international aviation services centre” and that up to 3,500 direct jobs would be created and maintained by the Shannon Aviation Development Task Force.Deputy O’Dea also said that Shannon Group chairman Rose Hynes had declared there was no intention to reduce the number of jobs at the airport.He concluded: “It’s clear now that we were sold a pup by this Government. Passenger numbers are up, growth is up and still there is a plan to target the workforce for redundancies. When the new Shannon Group structure was put in place its costs base was well known. It was very clear from the outset where things stood in relation to the staff, the costs associated with the amalgamation and we were told everything was hunky-dory.”Fianna Fáil Transport Spokesperson Timmy Dooley said the talk of redundancies was “disappointing to say the least”.“At the time of the creation of the new Shannon Group the cost base was well studied. There are serious questions that the Government must answer.  Were these job losses always expected? Have they secretly been in the planning for months? The one thing we can be sure of is that these job losses were not planned overnight.”Meanwhile, Finance Minister Michael Noonan has defended the decision of Shannon Group to seek voluntary redundancies and the rate of job creation at Shannon Airport.He also said he is satisfied with the progress made so far in terms of job creation.The current staff levels of about 280 employees at Shannon Airport are based on traffic levels of four million passengers a year.However, the airport recorded passenger numbers of just 1.7 million last year.

Measles cases on the rise

first_imgPrint NewsHealthMeasles cases on the riseBy Staff Reporter – April 5, 2018 1840 Previous articleLimerick groups The Ukeladies and Zion to feature in charity concertNext articleMore arrests as Garda Operation Thor targets burglars Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Facebook Advertisement Joint Easter message on Covid 19 from Limerick City and County Council, HSE, UL Hospitals and An Garda Síochána Vicky calls for right to die with dignity Thefts of catalytic converters on the rise #crimeprevention MeaslesTHE NUMBER of cases of Measles in the Mid West is still rising with 27 cases confirmed since the beginning of the year and ha;f of these have had to be hospitalised.People at risk are being urged to get their free vaccination, and this includes adults under the age of 40, who haven’t had or are unsure of they have ad, the jab.The majority of cases are in Limerick City and one is in Clare but linked to Limerick. Almost two thirds of cases are aged between 15 and 40 years demonstrating that measles is not just an illness of childhood.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A free HSE MMR vaccination clinic (no appointment needed) is being held in Barrack View Primary Care Centre, Edward Street, Limerick today (April 5)  and on next Thursday April 12, at 3-4pm.And for the duration of this outbreak MMR vaccination is free of charge to the public from GPs as the HSE is paying for the vaccine and for the GPs to give the vaccine“Measles is a serious public health issue. It is so contagious that if one person has it, 90 per cent of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected.,” a HSE spokesman said.“It is spread easily through coughing and sneezing. Measles can lead to serious complications such as pneumonia and inflammation of the brain and can, in rare cases, lead to a fatal disease of the brain which develops years after the infection. The mortality rate from measles infection is 1-2 per 1,000 cases.“This measles outbreak is continuing because we do not have herd immunity – i.e. the proportion of the population immune to measles is less than 95 per cent”.Medical experts advise that the only effective protection against measles is two doses of the MMR vaccine. Anyone who has not had two doses of MMR is at high risk of getting measles if they come in contact with someone who has it.Many adults in the at-risk age group also have young children, which means they are more likely to be exposed to measles and may in turn expose their babies and young children to measles if they get it, according to the HSE.The following groups, in particular, should check if they have had two doses of MMR and if not, visit their GP to get immunised as soon as possible. If people do not have a medical record of their vaccination it is not harmful to have extra doses to be on the safe side.·         Parents under the age of 40 who have never had measles or haven’t had the full course of MMR vaccine·         Adults under the age of 40 who work with the public. Some jobs pose more of a risk than others e.g. people who work with children, people who work in healthcare, those who work in education, those working in public offices or services and those who work in retail premises. Measles is very infectious and as this outbreak continues the risk of exposure continues.·         Couples under the age of 40 who may be planning a family. This is as once a woman is pregnant she is unable to get the MMR vaccine until after the baby arrives. Measles increases the risk of miscarriage and still birth. There is no treatment available which reduces this risk.·         Adults and young people under the age of 40 who plan to travel abroad in the coming months. There are a number of large outbreaks of measles in Europe (the UK, France, Italy, Germany and Romania) and across the world currently. Measles can be transmitted easily within the confined space of an airplane to people who are non-immune.Measles vaccine was introduced in Ireland in 1985 and MMR in 1988 which means that most of those aged over 40 are immune to measles due to natural infection but under 40’s  may have missed the vaccination window.Those aged 30 – 34 may have received 1 dose of MMR, while those aged under age 30 years would have had the opportunity to get two doses of MMR but uptake was less than 70% for some age groups.The HSE is advising that It is also important that parents of children in the region to check if their children have had the vaccines appropriate for their age (1st one at 1 year, 2nd one in Junior Infants in primary school).“Parents whose children are sitting exams may wish to prioritise this due to the potential disruption to their exams an infection could cause. It is also especially important in those who are planning to bring their children abroad”.“People who cannot get the MMR vaccine i.e. young infants, pregnant women and those whose immune systems are weakened (cancer patients etc.) are relying on the people around them who can get the MMR vaccine to help protect them”.As part of the outbreak control measures MMR is also being provided free through GPs. The HSE is paying for the vaccine and for the GPs to give the vaccine. Anyone who doesn’t have a medical card will need to give their PPSN.The HSE advises people who have symptoms of measles infection (rash, fever, cough, temperature) to:Stay at home from work. Children should not attend school or crèche.Call the Department of Public Health at 061 – 483338 to advise that you think you/your child may have measles.Telephone your GP so that they can see you at a time/place when no one else is there (to avoid infecting others).A GP may organise a test to confirm the diagnosis – this is usually done by using a small swab that takes a sample of the oral fluid from the mouth.“Patients with symptoms of measles should avoid presenting to the emergency department where possible. If it is necessary to seek urgent care, it is important to inform the ambulance service or emergency department that you have symptoms consistent with measles beforehand so that the appropriate precautions can be taken. Similarly, if you have been in contact with a confirmed case of measles and are seeking medical attention, please inform the healthcare provider before attending,” the spokesman said.An Outbreak Control Team made up of representatives from the HSE is involved in managing the outbreak in an effort to prevent further spread. This involves following up on every case of measles or suspected measles, arranging vaccination for people who have been in contact with someone who is infected, running immunisation clinics and outbreak communications.

The Minister totally misjudged the situation.Deputy Collins said that from day one, “I have called for a meal voucher scheme to be set up for farmers affected.“Teagasc has been advising farmers to prioritise the feeding of meal concentrates to plug the gap. As it’s a grain based product, there is no shortage of supply and it would reduce the demand for fodder.“However, the Minister’s short-sighted scheme completely ignored this, focusing solely on fodder transportation, therefore driving up the demand, and the price of hay and silage bales nationwide.“Minister Creed must step up to the mark and realise that farmers are genuinely struggling. This government’s anti-rural attitude cannot be allowed to persist”, Deputy Collins added.See more news here Email Advertisement Linkedinlast_img read more
