Letter to Editor – Seanad: why voting No is wise choice

Dear Sir   No one has argued convincingly why a two-house system is best, or why keeping and fixing the Seanad and Dáil is essential for our prosperity and wellbeing.   A two-house system is the best parliamentary system yet devised. It derives from human nature itself. The simple principle on which a two-house system […]

Letter to Editor – Referendum Smokescreen

Dear Sir, I write to express some points which I feel are absent from the debate for the retention of the Seanad.

SPORT OR . . .

By Mattie Lennon. “ Money spent on sport . . . it’s better than putting it into hospitals, into Consultants, into Doctors . . .”  (Michael Ring, on Liveline 13th August.)

Governments housing policy is failing the people of North Tipperary – Morris

Over the last few months I have askedNorthTipperaryCountycouncil a series of questions related to housing policy in the constituency. The answers that I have received have confirmed to me that this Governments policy of forcing our housing applicants into private rented accommodation is not working for either tenant of landlord. This Government have continued the […]

Irish water is yet another source of income for the ECB to pay off the bondholders and banksters – Morris

The recent announcement of the creation of a new Irish Water company and the handing over of this vital resource which sustains all life to An Bord Gais without any due diligence is more about raising more revenue for our E C B controlled Government than actually preserving water. Those that are promising a bonanza […]
