Tá scamaill sa spéir

Beidh dráma aon-ghnímh leis an bhfile agus drámadóir clúiteach Biddy Jenkinson don teideal Mise, Subhó agus Maccó á léiriú sa New Theatre, Barra an Teampaill, Baile Átha Cliath, ar an 25ú/26ú/27ú de Mheán Fómhair.

Dúirt Áine Moynihan:

“Tá dian-obair curtha isteach ag foireann an dráma seo chun caighdeán ard léirithe a bhaint amach agus cé nach bhfuilimid mar chuid oifigiúil den bhFéile Drámaíochta is mian linn ár gcuid a dhéanamh chun cur le drámaíocht na Gaeilge sa chathair le linn na Féile. Tá ábhar an dráma seo tráthúil mar gheall ar an ngéarchéim a bhaineann le heaspa dídine na laethanta seo, go háirithe i mBaile Átha Cliath agus ba mhaith linn cabhrú chun áird a tharraingt ar an bhfulaingt a bhaineann leis.”

Ticéidí ar fáil ag 01 6703361 nó ag an doras ar €12/10.

Faiseanta!

“Spotted this in Rathmines today. It serves to highlight the growing issue of shortages in student accommodation in the Dublin area. This, in addition to Dublin Institute of Technology’s recently-issued Student Cost of Living Guide, means that students attending third level this year may face a number of challenges outside of the lecture hall. With the Leaving Cert results out next week, and CAO offers out soon thereafter, potential students should avail of the resources provided by Students’ Unions and Student Accommodation Services as soon as possible.

Moyross Estate in Limerick

 

A Paris-based international human rights body [International Federation for Human Rights] lodged claims on behalf of 130,000 residents in estates in inner city Dublin and Limerick over sewage problems, persistent leaks, harmful damp and mould after charities at home did not take up the cause

The complaint also focuses on crime and anti-social behaviour and accuses the State of a strategy of deliberate neglect to further run down already dilapidated flat complexes which sit on prime development land.

The report also targeted the €3bn Limerick Regeneration scheme for failing to complete promised work in estates such as Moyross, Southill, St Mary’s Park, and Ballinacurra Weston. It states only €116m has been spent.

The FIDH complaint accuses local authorities of a conflict of interest as councils act as landlords and also enforce regulations.
