Independent TD Noel Grealish stands over controversial remarks he made about 'economic migrants' from Africa coming to Ireland to 'sponge off the system', according to one of his politi

TD Grealish 'stands over' remarks about African migrants

Looks like the gluttony guy from Seven

He is 100% correct, rest of the cowardly politicians won’t go there

Stand by your remarks MR Grealish you are 100% right.

DarkhairGael Finally, a politician with a spine in this country.

Why is he being called a racist if the facts are there to show he’s right in what he’s saying... 🤔

Transgender healthcare activists hold Dublin rally (13)

The Government continues to fail to provide proper healthcare for transgender and non-binary people, a rally outside the Dáil heard today.

The Govt continues to fail to provide proper healthcare for transgender and non-binary people, a rally outside the Dáil heard today

Get real, the whole country is on a waiting list for Healthcare and when they get it it falls short. Basic rehab physio post surgery not available reducing patient outcomes. The needs of a few cannot and must never outweigh the needs of the many.



No point reading as I assume it’s another biased RTÉ propaganda piece.

A dog is a dog, no matter the breed! It doesn't matter if you 'Think' there are 500 made up genders! Those of us still holding on to reality are fully aware - Male, Female! That's it! BEING TRANSGENDER IS BEING HUMAN AND TREATMENT SHOULD BE NO DIFFERENT!! Thats YOUR ignorance!

A Million people on the waiting list and these people think they should be special treatment.

tconnellyRTE jackiefox_ Taxpayer filled trough more likely. Who set the table at the EU banquet of greed? How has it been possible for pigs to gorge themselves on grossly inflated pay packages and heaping financial options while the average Irishperson struggles to make do with their leftovers?

Climate change accelerating in past five years - WMO (12)

Climate change is accelerating, with carbon dioxide levels increasing, sea levels rising and ice sheets melting faster than ever, experts have warned.

In a new report, the World Meteorological Organisation says climate change is accelerating, with carbon dioxide levels increasing, sea levels rising and ice sheets melting faster than ever before

Climate change has and always will be a cyclical thing.

This are figures from the NOAA in the US....

“Sea levels have been rising by an average of 5mm a year in the past five years, compared to 3.2mm a year on average since 1993, with much of the rise coming from glaciers and ice sheets that are melting ever more quickly.” = climate change is accelerating! Not slowing down.

All the climate deniers feeling threatened by the fact that the world is moving to be more sustainable. So funny how small minded some people can be.

Tis shockin altogether.😄

Juncker: No-deal Brexit would mean Irish border checks (12)

There will have to be border checks in Ireland if there is a no-deal Brexit in order to preserve the interests of the European Union, Jean-Claude Juncker has reiterated.

The EU will NEVER be to blame for a hard Brexit This is completely at the doorstep of The UK......

g2do Lol AndyBelfast

Like the bankers weren't really to blame

Ireland is just a pawn for the Eu elite empire.

I want the six-county’s to be a free-port!

Former Justice Minister Alan Shatter is demanding an apology on behalf of the State from Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, the Sunday Independent can reveal.

Shatter demands full State apology from Taoiseach

Oh offer him a state funeral just to shut him up! Shatter has always been his own worst enemy, his arrogance alienated his admirers as well as those who could never stand him.

Doesn’t half hold a grudge 😳 jeez

Like any good Merchant of Venice, he demands his pound of flesh.

Is he still around 🙄

Oyy vey! 🙄

Jump in support for Sinn Féin, but Fianna Fáil remains most popular party (8)

That’s according to the latest opinion poll.

Jump in support for Sinn Féin, but Fianna Fáil remains most popular party, according to latest opinion poll

People obviously desire more misery failure and debt as is the Fianna Fáil way. Sinn Féin up by 6 points. Sounds like a brain hemorrhage style event. Who are these pollsters and what are they on? Or off?

What a country when the choice is essentially between the FG fascists and the FF scum that destroyed the economy

In most other countries FF and FG would be the same party, will we ever be rid of that silly divide?

Voters must be finally feeling the benefit of that fateful Summer day when Sinn Féin's economics eggheads singlehandedly repaired the insurance market by asking some hard-hitting maths questions in that Dáil committee.

Who the fuck would vote for Fianna Fail? It's just fails me. They wrecked the place

All will be revealed on 8 October.

Just over two weeks out from the Budget, what can we expect?

Private sector Tax payers to get well shafted again and again we pay for everything and get nothing. And a totally crap over paid over privilege civil service who generate no wealth and do little or nothing for there cost for society most of their work should be contracted out

Another pay rise for tds while the rest of us get bent over

A tub of Vaseline and a ‘ Guide to touching your toes’

A shafting no doubt.

Probably the most boring nothing-budget for a generation - not necessarily a bad thing

Judge criticises lawyers and doctors as fraudulent claim case is dismissed by court - Independent.ie (7)

A High Court judge has been highly critical of a Limerick solicitor, a senior counsel and a consultant physician in a judgment in a case in which he dismissed one claim as fraudulent an

Judge criticises lawyers and doctors as fraudulent claim case is dismissed by court

Law society should take action Or A branch of DPP should be set up to target these colaborators

I hope those in legal circles and medical profession take note. Not the first time judges have criticised solicitors for pursuing fraudulent claims.

Good on you Judge. It's time that fraudulent claims are stopped. The people making these should have to cover the cost even if their means are limited

At last a Judge with some common sense. Anyone who brings a false claim should face prosecution including the so called professionals. There are no consequences!

Tip of the cap Judge👍
