@Toibin1⁩ asking our Taoiseach ⁦@MichealMartinTD⁩ about what it meant that a small number of women receiving “continuous care” following delays affecting 4,088 women - I emailed the Taoiseach last week yet he doesn’t seem to know - what’s going on #cervicalcheck

FINANCE Minister Paschal Donohoe has admitted it is 'difficult' to defend his decision to ease restrictions on pay and bonuses for staff at banks bailed out by the taxpayer. #bankers #HowIrelandWorks

It’s not difficult because it’s indefensible. It was a dirty, rotten move that shows he doesn’t give a shit about ordinary citizens. Paschal Donohoe favours the rich and isn’t even trying to hide it. Shocking when you think that he is a TD for low socio economic areas.

Taoiseach refuses to estimate children's hospital bill but confirms the building will be listed as the most expensive human structure ever built by the Guiness Book of Records.

I see Dan, the ultimate 'graph boy', has produced a chart which shows the average household has 30k in savings. Dan doesn't mention that the median is 9k for house owners, 2k for renters, and that in reality 580,000 people are living in poverty, 164,000 are children.

It is a devastating picture Stephen and one that needs no words. Thanks for all of your kind energy. Stay healthy 👍

There was a shelf above the engine at the back of our VW where my Dan Armstrong Plexi bass guitar and Tony’s Gibson 335 rested. Even now, over 47 years later, whenever I see a picture of the wreckage, I instinctively search, in vain, for even the tiniest piece of our instruments.

100% we do need to keep history mandatory. The irony & lack of self awareness of a Fianna Failer accusing others of trying to rewrite history though 🤣 even better a Fine Gaeler in the comments doing likewise who's every tweet/comment rewrites history 🤣🤣🤣🤣
Please, please keep History as a mandatory subject @NormaFoleyTD1 We badly need it clearly.

Aye that's a weird take. The man might not have "making money" as his long term goal.. That doesn't meant that this country doesn't have to pay peanuts and value the important work he does. But ye lets facilitate the area that caused a massive recession again..that makes sense

I never could understand bankers pay. Nurses who are responsible for peoples lives are grossly undervalued & struggle on low pay & no bonuses while bankers are revered and over rewarded for their efforts. Society has priorities all wrong

The job you do is a hell of a lot more challenging and intellectually demanding too. They have it easy and giving them bonuses is a very bad idea. They should be rewarded for diligence not risk-taking. The only reason they can claim bigger salaries is because they deal with €.

With full support from @FineGael @fiannafailparty and @greenparty_ie too. None of whom have lifted a finger to help PhDs in any meaningful way.

Seems odd to “urge NI’s parties to work together and bring back the Executive and Assembly” when Sinn Féin, Alliance, and the UUP would go back to work tonight. There is no Stormont government because of the DUP blocking devolution over the protocol, and what has followed.🤷🏻‍♀️
The people of Northern Ireland want their elected representatives to get back to work for them. I hope the Northern Ireland (Executive Formation etc) Bill will help accomplish this and again urge NI’s parties to work together and bring back the Executive and Assembly.

@roinnslainte @DonnellyStephen Is this what happened to the minutes of our #cervicalcheck meeting when I reported wrongdoing officially - there are serious questions that still need answering #looktheotherway @MichealMartinTD @LeoVaradkar @CMOIreland @SimonHarrisTD @Toibin1
At one stage, when the Health Service was going to break the rules to keep €30,000,000, that it should have handed back to the public purse, we were told in a meeting that we were going to look the other way. We were told that there was to be no record of it.

Funny how pay issues affecting recruitment get addressed faster depending on who you are. 900 consultant posts vacant. #CareCantWait

Honest, decent man with integrity and principles. Lifelong fighter for the poor and vulnerable and a more equal society. Brought down by the Establishment's lies and smear campaign. He's a legend.
