NAMA secures permission to move against Grehan brothers

Kyne, Cannon, and Higgins - Are they Galway’s rising political stars

The dust has settled; the new Government has come through its first 100 days; Britain’s Queen Elizabeth and US president Barack Obama have been and gone; Garrett the Good, Declan Costello, and Brian Lenihan - three icons of Irish politics - have passed to their eternal reward. What a first six months of 2011 this has been.

Tales from the Upper House

The GAA is a fine example of an organisation not afraid of change; not afraid to invest in a world class stadium; brave to modify some of their historical tenets to reflect a changed world. The club and county structure provide a fantastic means to relay back to HQ what is happening on the ground. If rules of the game need to be changed, after proposals, discussion and a vote, they are changed, the sport no less engaging. Politics should pay heed.

A bleak week in Irish headlines

This week the country has been rocked by how much more than originally estimated it is actually going to cost the taxpayer to bail out Anglo Irish Bank. The National Asset Management Agency has started taking over toxic loans for half their original value. Quinn Insurance is under financial investigation and the company have warned that 5,500 Irish jobs are being threatened by the appointment of administrators, and the numbers on the live register crept up again in March after a slight fall in February. On a brighter note, public sector management and unions have reached an agreement in relation to public sector pay cuts with no further cuts promised until after 2014 provided certain cost-saving measures are met. Actually, it’s not so bright after all because teaching unions, and more than likely a few others, look set to reject the deal. Imagine the mess the country would be in if private sector workers had the same mechanisms to reject pay cuts which were thrust upon them. They took it on the chin and realised they were lucky to have a job when friends and colleagues were being made redundant.

Some political commentators have adjudged last week’s budget was a success because it avoided on-street protests. The October budget got pensioners and students out with placards. The February public sector income levy resulted in a large Dublin march. Politicians say the public response to the latest budget has been silence. This should be even more scary to Government backbenchers.
