l "Current legislation and insurance claims practice protects serial claimants and pseudo thieves over law-abiding businesses and motorists"

l 212 awards made in Waterford by Personal Injuries Assessment Board in 1 year

In support of small businesses and motorists all over Ireland that are suffering from spiralling insurance premiums coupled with crippling claims costs insurance experts at the CFM Group are calling on Financial Services Minister Eoghan Murphy to speed up the establishment of the insurance claims register to out what they describe as "Trip & Trick claimants" and other professional fraudsters.

CFM group, one of Ireland’s largest general insurance brokers, and the company behind the Insuremyshop.ie, Insuremyhouse.ie, Insuremyvan.ie and Coverinclick.ie brands, says it intends to campaign for a register which it believes will go a long way to curbing the activities of "professional insurance claimants", who, they believe, are making a substantial living from

"Golden Circles" everywhere!

May's so called "Dementia Tax", ensured that thousands of

traditional bedrock Tory voters would jump ship, for fear of

losing their homes, farms or property. This, along with many other "Stupid" manifesto promises, well and truly put several nails in her coffin.

In the meantime, that wily old fox that is Jeremy Corbyn, promised young and old voters, the earth, moon and the stars. In terms of what he would deliver, for FREE, if he and his Labour party were given the mandate to govern the UK. Let us not forget that it is always easier in opposition at election, time to guarantee voting nirvana, when you don't actually have to make the books of Government balance. The same, back of a fag packet economics, goes on at the moment with FF, SF and the so called

Tributes from all sides of the political spectrum have flooded in after the annoucement of the death of former Fine Gael T.D. and Minister for Agriculture Austin Deasy. Mr. Deasy died following a short illness at the age of 80.

A dominant figure in Waterford and national political life for several decades Austin Deasy was first elected to the Dungarvan District Council in 1967.

From there he was elected to national office as a T.D. in 1977.

Mr. Deasy first entered Cabinet life in 1982 when he was appointed Minister for Agriculture, a time noted for his deft negotiations with the European Union in securing a better deal for Irish farmers within the union.

Mr. Deasy held this position until the fall of the Government in 1987.

Austin Deasy resigned from politics in 1988 but returned to front bench life after the success of John

The Great Search for Yield

The Great Rift Valley in Eastern Kenya provides the setting for the world's greatest wildlife spectacle - the 1.5 million wildebeest migration.

From the vast Serengeti plains to the hills of Kenya's Masai Mara over 1.4 million wildebeest and 200,000 zebra and gazelle, relentlessly tracked by Africa's great predators, migrate in a clockwise fashion over 1,800 miles each year in search of rain ripened grass.

Since 2008, the investment world has been in turmoil and we have witnessed a similar migration of investors seeking a return on their money.

For high risk investors, there has been a significant recovery in equities but for cautious investors it has been a different story.

Initially, banks, in an effort to stabilise their balance sheets, offered depositors rates of up to 5% for placing money on deposit for 5 years.

A national survey commissioned by the Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU), found that 25% of adults are living in homes that no longer suit their needs, but are prevented from moving due to the current property market.

Over a quarter (28%) of 18 to 34 year olds said they were living in unsuitable homes but could not afford to move out. Perhaps surprisingly, a quarter of those in the older age group of 35-54 year olds (26%) also felt this way. The survey, which also looked into home improvement and DIY trends in Irish households, found that almost a fifth are forking out to extend their home, either with an attic/garage conversion - or a built-on extension. Again this trend underlines the finding that a significant proportion of people are living in homes unsuitable for their needs. Overall, the survey

For the love of (insert your Deity here)!!!

I spent nine wonderful years working in London during the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. During that time I earned and lost heaps of money. Bought property and got weighed down with massive negative equity debt. Had some great jobs and was lucky enough to work with some great bosses.

I worked with and for Jews, Sikhs, Hindus, Protestants, Catholics, Jehovah’s, born again Christians, Rastafarians, Islamists, to name but a very few. I lived in areas predominantly populated by Jews, Indians, Pakistanis, North Londoners and Cockneys. Whilst living in these areas I deliberately mixed, went out of my way to become part of the community and

“That cheeky Scotsman”, “Sweaty Sock”, “Jock”.

I was even in the City of London, with two friends, celebrating something to do with Japan, in a Japanese multi-national’s karaoke basement

How might Trump’s policies affect ethical investing?

Many people have ethical concerns about President Trump, so should investors worry about ethical approaches to investing?

Research in 2016 found sin stocks, which include companies in the gambling, tobacco, alcohol, and weapons industries, generated higher returns under Republican presidencies and congresses. This linked the phenomenon to greater political donations from vice sectors to Republicans, despite the broader market being stronger under Democratic control.

No president has been as aggressive as Donald Trump in seeking to roll back regulations and environmental protections. This suggests environmental, social and governance (ESG) and socially responsible investment (SRI) strategies may suffer on a relative basis under his administration.

Much focus has been on Trump’s environmental policies including his enthusiasm for the coal industry and his moves to loosen restrictions on drilling for oil and gas. There are good

Ní Riada Sinn Féin MEP Liadh N' Riada has said that banks here are still refusing to learn from the mistakes of the past.

The Ireland South MEP was speaking after Bank of Ireland was handed a €3m fine for failing to adequately adhere to regulations introduced in 2010 as a result of the banking collapse.

The decision follows similar fines that were handed out to Ulster Bank and AIB in recent months.

“The Irish banking system has seemingly learned nothing following years of bad practices and light regulation which left Irish citizens saddled with €64bn of private banking debt,” she said.

“Bank of Ireland's actions were a blatant defiance of very clear legislation which was put in place to protect Ireland’s reputation, taxpayers and banking system. It is eerily reminiscent of the horrendous banking practices we saw in the years leading up to

Michael Garland,

bizBoost Chair,

It is official – Summer’s here!!!

The June Bank Holiday weekend is once again just around the corner. Boy does this come around quicker each year, or am I just getting older?

This of course means that we can forget for a few days at least, our woes, the political bickering of the FG leadership campaign, the effects of Brexit, the shenanigans surrounding the funding of our SDZ, our missing catheterization laboratory, our representatives’ empty promises and so on. As the City Centre will be buzzing with all manner of musical delights and a not insignificant hint of colour, over this June Bank Holiday weekend.

Returning to our streets will be the annual “City in Bloom”. A collaborative project between Waterford Council and Waterford Business Group (WBG), which has made a noteworthy contribution to additional Tidy Town points for the City.

    Paradise papersOne of the most surprising things about the release of the copious amounts of tax details of some of the richest people on the planet wasn't the names of the people involved but the fact that three of them were actors from Mrs. Brown's Boys. Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
