A Fair Cop

In a similar manner in which the Irish people are supposed to think that there is a real difference between Fianna Fail and Fine Gael we are now supposed to think that there is a real and substantive difference between the two contenders for the Fine Gael leadership.

If you are the sort of person who likes to get into heated debates over the number of angels that can dance on the head of a pin then you might be interested in trying to find out the real differences between the two men who are vying for the just vacated role of head of Fine Gael and the putative head of the country, a race which will be finished in just over a weeks time. The reason why there are such little differences between the two men is that

The callous and inhumane bombing of young children and adults at a music festival in Manchester on Monday evening has created revulsion amongst people throughout the world. The police have arrested a man in connection with the terrorist incident. There are many connections between the people of Waterford and the people of Manchester, not least the huge support base the Man Utd. and Man. City soccer teams have in Waterford. There is also a huge Irish presence in the city of Manchester.

As we go to Press it is not known if any Irish victims are among the dead or injured. However, this incident coming in the aftermath of recent terrorist incidents in Germany and France is another indication of the ruthless and indiscriminate nature of the terrorists who don’t care who they kill or maim in furtherance of their objectives.

Minister John Halligan confirmed that the deployment order for the mobile lab has been signed by Minister for Health Simon Harris, effectively giving the formal green light for the unit:

"I have heard the mobile cath lab described as a 'sticking plaster' and I want to be clear that I am not for one minute suggesting that this is the solution to the problems with cardiac services. The proposal of a mobile cath lab to tackle the stagnant day-to-day waiting lists came not from me but from consultants at UHW as an interim measure, while we continue to fight for improved services at UHW.

"I continue to believe that the Herity Review is fundamentally flawed and that is why we need this second review referred to by Minister Harris, whilst the mobile unit is in place, to assess the need for a

A Fair Cop

Who would be involved in the running of policing these days? If you are American then you'll just be after receiving a very curt notice of dismissal followed up by a flurry of tweets by your boss. If you are in Ireland then you'll be said to be behind a 'conveyor belt of scandals' and have your every move scrutinised, picked over and criticised by nearly every politician in the land, not to mention what the newspapers have to say about everything that is going on. The worst part of it for Nóirín O'Sullivan is that a lot of what is going on goes back to a time when she wasn't really in any position of authority in the police force and therefore can't really be said to be ultimately responsible.

What is understandable is that she is being

This Eastender's spin off has received so much pre-publicity that there is probably no one in the country who doesn't know that it was mainly filmed in Dunmore East and Passage East in County Waterford. Anybody who has been to either of those destinations can fully appreciate why they were picked to film in. There are a host of reasons why, but the main one remains that there are just some of the most scenic spots in the country and also considering their size they offer a large amount of varied shooting spots. The show was filmed last year and given the great weather that everyone enjoyed both Dunmore and Passage will be shown at their very best. Of course there will, hopefully, be tourist spin-offs but for the moment just lets enjoy sharing some of the most beautiful areas

Blasphemy and religious belief

Dear editor

I agree that blasphemy should not be a criminal offence and that we should have the freedom to poke fun at religions if we so desire. However, I also believe that it is better, having secured this freedom of expression, to show respect to the religious beliefs of others than to subject them to ridicule and contempt.

Atheists and materialists make much of the fact that one cannot prove the existence of God. They tend to get quite carried away with this fact, forgetting all too often that neither can one disprove the existence of a creator or ultimate originator of the universe.

Sure we all know that it started with the Big Bang they insist. Scientists theorize that about 13.7 billion years ago, before the theoretical Big Bang, all the matter in the Universe was compressed into

A Robbery occurred at Jay Bees Shop, Callahane, Dunmore Road, Waterford last week when two males entered the shop. Both produced knives and demanded money from staff. Some cash was handed over and the culprits left in a blue ford focus. Thankfully nobody was injured in the shop.

Later at 14.45 Gardai noticed the vehicle on The Mall, Waterford and moved to intercept this vehicle which failed to stop and as it turned into Catherine Street, collided into another vehicle on the Junction. The occupants of the car, two youths, fled the scene. Other units of Gardai were quickly on the scene and both culprits were arrested nearby. The driver of the other vehicle was taken to WUH as a precaution and was found to have suffered no serious injuries.

Both males 25yrs and 18 yrs are presently detained under Section 4

Snap

Election

In an age where nearly every piece of news is telegraphed way in advance, British Prime Minister Theresa May caught everyone by surprise when she announced that she was going to have a general election at the start of June. She firmly said that the reason for this snap election was the fact that she wanted a strong mandate going into talks with the European Union over Brexit and that the only way of doing this was go to the country and seeking their backing for her plans.

There is a certain amount of inevitability that the Tories will win this election, effectively it is theirs to lose, and it really does look like it’s just a case of how big a margin they will win by.

There is effectively no opposition in Britain at the moment as Labour are too busy
