Phillip Schofield story shows us gay people can live happy with opposite sex

Yesterday it was reported , he was converting the wifes garage into a Bachelor Pad and would remain in the family home which is worth some 2.6 million . The Scholfield story shows us that while gay people might be sexually attracted to the same sex , physical attraction and love are two

Letter to Editor 12 Sept 2020 Every day in Ireland , the overall total of confirmed Covid-19 cases and Deaths is read out in our daily news Bulletins . Many people are wrongly led to believe that this is the number of people who currently have the Virus right now but actually it is the number of people who tested positive for the virus since the very start of the pandemic at the end of March and many of these people have since recovered and no longer have the virus . Unfortunately , the number of people who have the Virus "right now" is NOT KNOWN because

The Fiona Gregg story - The sad story of a Mother whos children were taken from her by a failed system

The Fiona Gregg story - The sad story of a Mother whos children were taken from her by a failed system

In November 2013 , Gardai issued a nationwide alert for a missing Roscommon woman and her three children . They were later found safe and well in Fermanagh . The Woman's name was Fiona Gregg . This is the last time Fiona would be together with her children as a family . Here is Fiona's full story in her own words . I moved to county Roscommon in 2008 as a lone parent with two of my children. I qualified as an EMT but shortly after that I got ill with gallstones. When the doctor advised me I'd need to have my gall bladder removed, I

Elderly in Nursing homes "the forgotten people" says pro life campaign

Latest figures show the number of Coronavirus Clusters in Nursing homes jumped from 25 to 200 clusters in the space of just 4 weeks (a cluster is 3 or more cases within a 72 hour period) resulting in the deaths of some 200 nursing home residents . 

Commenting on the tragedy , Pro Life Campaign spokewoman Maeve O'Hanlon said it is a 'terrible indictment of our society that our elderly and most vulnerable citizens became the forgotten people when they should have been a top priority.'

The fact that almost half of all deaths to date from Covid-19 in Ireland have occurred in nursing and residential homes is a devastating statistic. It was always going to be an immensely difficult challenge to protect the elderly and most vulnerable once the virus took hold, but a clear picture is starting to emerge that protecting residents of nursing homes was not given the priority it deserved when the HSE and others were planning their response to this crisis.
 

There was the baffling HSE decision on 10th March to relax restrictions on visiting nursing homes, undoing the restrictions put in place by nursing home managers, followed by a clinical directive from the HSE to nursing home staff not to wear PPE equipment.
 

The claim from nursing home representatives that the HSE were also actively poaching frontline staff from nursing homes to reassign to hospital settings as the Covid-19 crisis started, is very troubling

it is a futile exercise to indulge in a blame game now, but it is not a pointless exercise to highlight the shortcomings in order to salvage what can be salvaged in the coming months to protect the most vulnerable. The Government and National Public Health Emergency Team (NPHET) must be held more accountable for their actions. And that accountability needs to happen immediately. With each passing day more and more lives are being lost.

No stone should be left unturned to assemble the expertise needed to protect the lives of our beautiful and beloved elder and dependent citizens, who deserve nothing but the very best care and protection from this State
  
 
Maeve O'Hanlon , Pro Life Campaign spokeswoman
  
 
Meanwhile , two healthcare workers at St Luke's Hospital in Kilkenny have died after testing positive for Covid-19 . A spokesperson for the Ireland East Hospital Group said the healthcare workers were employed as support staff at St Luke’s  .. "We wish to give our sincere condolences to their family, friends and colleagues," .

Hi Rose,

Sadly, this is but the start!, this same government is designing a chart of vulnerabilities within OUR fellow country men, women and children!.

To assist in deciding if one should get priority OR NOT! due to lack of availability of medical breathing equipment.

Giving huge concern to Parents, siblings and carers of the Disabled.

Fears (for example) that Downs syndrome sufferers, may be pushed down the line due to their short life expectancy!!.

BUT BE ASSURED the Abortion tablet WILL of course be AVAILABLE!

SHAMEFUL!
^
Great job Charlie!

It's a bloody disgrace that our elderly have, are and continue to be, Victims of government indecision and outright stupidity!.

The management of the care homes, to their credit had carefully considered the situation and designed care plans to meet individual and collective needs to deal with Covid-19 within their homes.

Sadly the government decided not to listen to experts at the coalface, and over turned perfectly constructed plans!.

Which has now proved an absolute disaster! And has and will continue to take the lives of Irish Men and Women of advanced age!

The decisions made AGAINST the wishes and better judgement of managers & Staff within the homes is a criminal act leading to the death/s of others.

May God bless each and every one and give strength to their families and loved ones in this most dreadful time.

i'd say in many cases it was nursing home staff that passed the virus onto the residents because most nursing homes haven't allowed any visitors since the whole thing kicked off in early march
