Working in the Community, Working for the Community

imageAt 2pm today we march in Clonmel not just against the water charges but we march for change.


We march for the Right to:


– Have a health service which is fit for purpose.


– Education, including the restoration and increased provision of SNA’s, and an education which is truly free.


– Have gainful and decent employment which would provide dignity, respect and a living wage.


– Democratic Reform where citizens are at the heart of decision making.


– Housing, and to end homelessness and clearing of social housing waiting lists.


– Sustainable Energy, fighting climate change is not a ‘cost’ – it is a necessary strategy for human survival.


– Natural Resources. The assets of our nation were declared in the 1916 Proclamation as belonging to the citizens of Ireland, a Proclamation which
also pledged to cherish all the citizens of the state equally. The Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) is one of the biggest threats to people’s ability to provide labour, social, and environmental protection and represents a proposed transfer of economic and political sovereignty from the Irish citizens to multi-national corporations.


– Equality, the right to equality encompasses social and economic rights which are implied and un-enumerated rights in our Constitution. These rights should be protected in legislation which will address the issues of poverty.


– Debt Justice, as past recklessness of financial speculation is imposing an intolerable burden on people’s future.


Just us at the Main Guard, Clonmel at 2pm.

Wednesday September 19th has been designated as Mouth Cancer Awareness Day here in Ireland.

Members of the public are encouraged to visit their local participating dentist or Cork University Dental School and Hospital for a FREE mouth cancer examination.

Over 300 cases of cancer of the mouth (oral cavity and pharynx) are detected in Ireland each year.  If detected early these cancers are easily treated.  A mouth cancer exam is painless and quick, takes only minutes and could save your life.

Hey Everyone,


President Higgins launched ‘Being Young and Irish’, a consultation process with young people aged 17 – 26, earlier this summer. The consultation process includes a series of Regional Workshops as well as the opportunity to make online submissions, culminating in a National Seminar in November of this year. This is the first in a series of seminars, aimed at shaping Ireland’s shared future that will take place during this Presidency.



The President and his team have asked An Gaisce to provide volunteers for the four Regional Workshops and the National Seminar of the ‘Being Young and Irish’ initiative, the precise dates and locations of which are listed below. We need SIX people at each Regional Workshop and six at the national seminar. Please aim to pick a location which is closest to you. We will be especially needing people outside of the Dublin area so if you do live in Munster or Connaught please strongly consider volunteering there. Travel costs will be reimbursed by Gaisce where necessary and when deemed appropriate.
