Greenway is up and running, or cycling or walking!

In a few days time, Saturday 25th March to be exact, the much anticipated Waterford Greenway will be officially opened. Encompassing Waterford City, in the East, to

Dungarvan Town, in the West, along the full 46 kilometre route. The use of this old, decommissioned railway line has been in planning for many, many a year and a number of sections have been accessible for some time now.

Saturday marks the opening of the “Full Monty” - a 46km coastal/inland route, which will simply blow your socks off, sharing some stunning vistas of sea, mountains, hills and glens.

Some parts of this coastline have for far too long been hidden gems, known only to a select few locals, quietly spoken about in the corners of bars and coffee shops. Now we can ALL shout

Renowned for quality fashion and individual customer service, patrons have travelled from far and wide over the years and will be sad to hear that well known owners Tommy and Breda Cummins are retiring from business.

Made of Waterford – Thank you Luke!

In two days time we will ALL be out watching the St Patrick’s Day parade in our local parish. Some may even be lucky enough to be participating. Many will be looking for friends and family, to shout “Well Boy”, or “Well Girl” to. What’s guaranteed is that locally, regionally, nationally and internationally, the world will quite literally be turned green on Friday 17th March. A unique access to the world even if it is “Just for one day!”

That is of course, unless you live in the good old US of A. Where for some reason, they have adopted this festival as their own and renamed it “St Patty’s Day”! Just who the hell is “St Patty” and he certainly wasn’t around when Luke first thought of and dreamed up

How might a serious illness impact my financial well-being?

If you were suddenly affected by a serious illness like cancer, heart attack or stroke, it would have a significant bearing on your ability to maintain your lifestyle and provide for your dependants. Apart from the shock and confusion on diagnosis, a serious illness may affect your ability to work again or you may have to reduce your work hours significantly, leading to a substantial drop in income. This drop in income could in turn impact on your ability to continue meeting your day to day expenses and overheads, such as mortgage and other loan repayments.

If you are an employee and pay PRSI, the social welfare Illness Benefit or Invalidity Pension may replace part of this lost income. However, the benefits are low and if you are self-employed you

New research conducted by Peter McVerry Trust, the homeless and housing charity, shows that 62% of people are in favour of a tax on empty homes. The charity, which has had a long running campaign on empty homes, derelict sites and underused spaces is now urging the Government to bring forward legislation to introduce an empty homes tax in Ireland.

Pat Doyle, CEO of Peter McVerry Trust, said “Peter McVerry Trust welcomes the results of the poll which shows 62% of people, a clear majority, are in favour of an empty homes tax being applied.”

“We strongly believe in the merits of an empty homes tax because it will encourage the owners of empty homes to either take up existing grant schemes or place their properties on the market. Ultimately, an empty homes tax will result in an increased number of homes

A flag worth flying, but few know from where!

Last weekend, Waterford City hosted the annual 1848

Tricolour Celebration - a weekend event which commemorates the first ever raising of the Irish Flag, by Thomas Francis Meagher, at 33 The Mall.

The actual date that TF Meagher raised the tricolour was the 7th March 1848.

Meagher had a colourful history which is well documented in our Bishop’s Palace museum. He was born in what is now the Granville Hotel, educated in England, sent to Tasmania by the “Empire”, fought on the winning side in the American Civil War and is attributed with “Founding” the 69th Brigade. A pallbearer at

Lincoln’s funeral, involved in politics in Montana, he mysteriously disappeared after “Falling off” a steamboat into the Missouri River and his body was never recovered. It is these

Traditionally, those in rented accommodation have been less likely to insure their home contents, than those in owned homes. However, the lack of housing supply in certain areas of the country currently means that for many, buying their own home now seems like an unachievable aspiration. As a result, many families are creating a home for themselves in rented accommodation and amassing all the furniture, fittings and personal effects that come with making a family home.

Because of this, experts at http://www.insuremyhouse.ie say that it’s more important than ever for tenants, particularly those that are past the student or young adult stage, to consider putting appropriate financial protections in place to protect themselves against risk. The home insurance experts believe that as much as 50% of renters may not be insured.
