Warning of spike in asthma hospital admissions

The Asthma Society of Ireland is to hold a free, back-to-school, asthma clinic in Castlebar next month and is warning parents and teachers ahead of an expected spike in hospital admissions for children with the condition at this time of year.

Emergency hospital admissions for children with asthma more than triple in the month of September, according to the society.

In response to this, the society is visiting Ballyvary National School on the morning of September 18 and also providing a free training and support clinic in Mayo between 2pm and 5pm in Hobans Car Park, Castlebar, on the same day.

Do we want reform or do we just not care?

So, the Seanad survived the chop, the people have spoken or to be more exact around 40 per cent of them have. The right to vote and shape the future of our country is something that was struggled for for hundreds of years, but when two questions to shape the future direction of democracy and the legal setup of the nation was asked, 60 per cent of the people didn't even bother to show up and have their say.
