Pact could favour Labour mayor

first_imgNewsLocal NewsPact could favour Labour mayorBy admin – June 9, 2011 522 Twitter Email THE dealmaking process is in full swing among the political parties for the next mayoralty of Limerick, with a pact between Labour and Fine Gael a distinct possibility.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Among the favoured candidates on Monday, June 27, is Labour’s Gerry McLoughlin, who has yet to hold the honour.Fine Gael hold eight seats, Labour four, Independent three, Sinn Fein and Fianna Fail one each.However, should Cllr Kevin Kiely, who quit the FG party to become an Independent, decide to row in behind his former party members, it would put them in a very strong position with nine votes, against a combined total of eight from the others.Cllr Joe Leddin has confirmed to the Limerick Post of a likelihood of a pact arrangement emerging between Labour and Fine Gael.“With their eight votes and our four, that would give us a majority of 12, and we would be putting forward Cllr Gerry McLoughlin for the mayoralty,” he said.Cllr Jim Long is still the nominated FG candidate, and according to Kiely, the mayoralty is still very much up for grabs.“More so this year than ever, other groupings are being formed -it won’t be a foregone conclusion,”: he said..A Fine Gael contact told the Limerick Post: “If we agreed to give Kevin Kiely deputy Mayor this time, he will want something else the next year. Jim Long is willing to give him deputy Mayor in 2012, but it is not in his gift to do so – that’s a party decision”.The same source commented: “Fine Gael and Labour will be meeting shortly – Labour is looking for a lot – the mayoralty this year,   representation on the Shannon Foynes Port Company and the City Development Board and other memberships – there’s an unprecedented level of talks going on across the parties and I can tell you that there’s more voices in Fine Gael looking for alternatives, than was thought”.

FIVE projects led by community leaders have been selected by Limerick City and County Council as part of a programme to re-imagine Limerick’s Georgian Laneways.As part of Limerick City and County Council’s EU project +CityxChange (Positive City Exchange) we are hoping to create a new community to drive innovation and fight climate change by working towards a positive energy city!Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up This is a community of individuals, groups, businesses and agencies who are looking at ways to develop smarter cities that are open and accessible for all.We are all about the positives working together to solve problems or to create a new vision all through citizen engagement.The overarching aim is to develop a series of demonstration projects on how to become a smart positive energy city for everyone.Following a series of workshops, five groups have now been selected to develop their projects based around different themes for Limerick’ s Georgian Laneway seeing how they can be best utilised for the benefit of the city and those who live and work here.Welcoming the selection Mayor of the City and County of Limerick Cllr Michael Collins said: “It is great to see such interest in revitalising our Georgian Laneways. They can be used for so many things, as highlighted by the range of projects selected.“It is so important that we all work together on projects like these and that they are community/ group driven. It gives people ownership. Georgian Limerick is one of our great assets and we need to develop and enhance them in a sympathetic yet innovative way, and the +CityxChange project is helping to do that.” he said.Dr Mihai Bilauca, Head of Digital Services and Leader of the +CityxChange project in Limerick City and County Council said: “+CityxChange is about finding innovative solutions to how we meet our energy consumption. Sometimes it isn’t just about new technology but we need to think about how we use energy and work to change our behaviour.“Working closely with communities and fostering the resulting innovation is at the heart of this project. Having an open invitation for groups to collaborate and innovate we can co-create a place we can all share and enjoy. Often described as placemaking – we want to work together to define the place they want to live, work and play.“Limerick’s Georgian quarter with its network of laneways creates an ideal opportunity to reimagine this extraordinary city asset into a collection of wonderful spaces. We want to capture the imagination of local community groups to start the transformation of Georgian laneways and use physical interventions such as new planting, improved streetscape and decoration supported by advanced technologies such as air quality and noise sensors.” Mihai added.Claire Flynn from Limerick Mental Health Association said: “We are always looking for projects that bring people together and give us an opportunity to break down the stigma surrounding mental health.“Bringing people from different communities together to work on a project really helps to foster cultural and community relationships.  For the community that lives and works around Jesuit Lane it gives an opportunity to get to know each other, to create a safe and welcoming space close to home and work. For everyone else, it will draw people to walk the laneway, enjoy the art and flora.” she explained.Ciarán O’Mara from Deepseek AI is involved in the Streetseek project: “Streetseek is a pilot programme by Deepseek AI & The University of Limerick, to measure the heartbeat of Limerick city.“Innovative technology has been developed to gather deeper insights into how people engage with public spaces in our city. This is achieved with personal privacy as a priority. We use thermal cameras which are based on temperature readings, in contrast to conventional visual cameras.“The goal of Streetseek, is to provide in depth detail into how our city is used, to facilitate smart planning and decision making into the future.” he concluded.The five projects are: Green Museum 2Limerick Mental Health AssociationCollaborators: Hunt Museum, Women’s Group and Men’s ShedJesuit LaneThis project will bring the Museum to the laneway, with CO2 absorbing plants -as a service to the environment.

Ho, ho—’oh no!’

first_imgSome aspects of the company holiday party can be anything but festive.“ ‘Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, the party was roaring, and most folks were soused. Employees danced on the tables with flair, and mistletoe kisses were shared everywhere.”Hopefully this doesn’t describe your credit union’s holiday party, but it aptly portrays some of the corporate revelry that takes place each December. When the “spirit” of the season is the kind that comes from a bottle, the party cleanup crew sometimes includes lawyers.There are many great reasons to end the calendar year with a celebration. An event that has been carefully planned promotes team-building, goodwill, and enthusiasm. Most people love a good party—but some do not.For starters, make it clear the occasion isn’t obligatory. Employees who choose not to attend shouldn’t be made to feel they’ll suffer consequences because of their choice.Because holiday parties often involve references to Christmas, and music and decorations that may express Christian beliefs, you might need to issue a reminder that the dominant religion in our country isn’t the only one. continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

David Moyes sacked by Real Sociedad after a year in charge

first_imgDavid Moyes has been sacked as Real Sociedad manager after a 2-0 defeat at second-bottom Las Palmas that left the side level on points with the final relegation place.The favourite to replace him is Eusebio Sacristán, a former head coach at Celta and former B team coach at Barcelona.When Moyes took over last November, having been sacked by Manchester United, Real Sociedad were 16th, having won only twice in 11 games last season. A year later the team are in virtually the same position, the improvement of the second half of last season long forgotten.They finished it in 12th place, on 46 points, but now they are 16th again and have won twice in 10 games. Those victories have been away to the bottom two, Levante and Granada, and they are yet to win at home.The belief in San Sebastián is that the squad should be competing for a place in Europe but that is 10 points off and the latest defeat provoked fears that la Real could be dragged into a relegation battle instead, despite spending €16m on Asier Illarramendi and €7.6m on the striker Jonathas in the summer.With Sevilla, Barcelona, Villarreal and Real Madrid still to play before the turn of the year, there was little optimism that results will improve quickly. Moyes has been in charge for la Real for 38 games, the equivalent of a full league season, during which time they have picked up 46 points, with only 11 wins. Last season they finished 12th, 11 points clear of the relegation zone. Now only goal difference separates them from the bottom three.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
