Dr Jerry Cowley today outlined a number of initiatives set out in Labour’s policy programme that he believes will assist Mayo small businesses and enterprises. In a week where Údarás released figures which showed that in 2010 there was a net loss of 132 jobs in the Mayo Gaeltacht, and other major businesses are threatened by lack of credit, Dr Cowley has said it is time to look to Labour for solutions.
Tom Welby is not among those who think that Independents candidates will be an irrelevancy at Election 2011. He feels Independents could have a significant role in the next Dáil, and in leading the way in reforming the Irish political system.
Labour Party TD Willie Penrose has said this week’s Budget is bereft of hope for people who have lost their jobs. “With well over 400,000 people in Ireland looking for work, surely the number one priority for this budget should have been job creation?

According to research presented this week at the Retirement Planning Council of Ireland Conference at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin, four out of 10 people coming up to retirement have now expressed a desire to continue working after they leave their current job, whether for money or as volunteers. RPCI CEO John Higgins has now called for a new way to define the concept of retirement in terms, not just of economic gain, but also for social gain.
Sinn Fein county councillor Gerry Murray has described as extraordinary the admission by the Government that it does not know how many schools across the State are using prefabs. Last week the Department of Education confirmed that it does not have a complete list of all primary and secondary schools using prefab buildings; it just has data collected from a sample survey of 900 schools. Shockingly there are more than 2,605 prefab units being used in the 900 schools surveyed.
