O'Shea stars as Mayo lay down a marker

image preview

Mayo continued their dominance over fiercest Connacht rivals Galway with a hard fought four point win in Salthill last Sunday.

It advertised for men willing “to face a tough and dangerous task”. These were the Black and Tans. A further campaign was launched to recruit former army officers who were specifically formed into counter insurgency units known as the Auxiliaries or ‘The Auxies’.

A look at gifts and inheritance tax

image preview

The issue of inheritance and gift tax (CAT) is becoming more important to many people because of the reduction in the amount an individual can receive tax free. When an individual decides to transfer his/her assets to another person, either by gift or on their death, assets over a certain value will attract CAT. The current rate of tax is 25 per cent, there is speculation that it will increase in the upcoming budget. It is important that individuals plan the transfer of assets in a tax efficient manner, as many people may be forced to sell assets they have been gifted or left on an individual's death in an attempt to pay the CAT liability.
