Cost of a Rainbow Crossing would house Homeless Person for 2 Years

Over the coming years , Rainbow Pedestrian Crossings dedicated to the LGBT community will become a common feature of Irish Towns and Cities . Arklow Municipal District installed the first such crossing in December , an idea proposed by local LGBT activist and filmmaker Dave Thomas and backed by local Councillor Peir Leonard .

The Motion was put forward by Councillor Francis Timmons and seconded by Councillor Peter Kavanagh of the green party . Meanwhile in Wexford , a motion put forward by Sinn Féin councillor Tom Forde will see a number of Rainbow

Letters : Arklow Rainbow Crossing - Is it "Equal" to give more importance to one group over another

It was interesting to hear the reason given by Arklow Council to install Ireland's first ever Rainbow Crossing . A Spokesperson for Arklow Council said : - "We hope that this project will highlight to those passing through the main street that the community in Arklow and its environs is an inclusive one where everyone is treated equally . Arklow Municipal District is delighted to be setting an example on a national level in this regard and we hope that this project will lead the way for other local authorities and communities to follow " . The question is this . Is it 'equal' to give

Genuine Question about Rainbow Flag

My local Cafe has a permanent rainbow flag over the sales counter . Out of curiosity I asked them in an email the reason for the flag but got no response of yet . Usually , the reason given is - "to make LGBT people feel 'welcome' and 'included'" here's the thing .... 1) Who says they dont already feel welcome and included without the Flag ???? 2) Why do you need a flag in order to feel welcome , thats the big question ???? What about all the different nationalities currently living in Ireland . Should all our Shops and Buildings put up

Letters : Nursing Homes denying residents access to family over Vax Certs are breaching guidelines

Are you being refused access to your Nursing Home relative over your Vaccination status . If so , you are not alone and in a similar position to myself and others ... and believe it or not , such a refusal is a breach of the HSE Guidelines in relation to exemptions on Vaccine Certs . The HSE Guidelines issued to Nursing Homes in November - "COVID-19: Normalising Visiting in Long Term Residential Care Facilities (LTRCFs) " contain a list of exemptions in Appendix 1 and not only do these exemptions give Nursing Home Staff discretion around Covid Cert requirements but they specificly state that a resident who

Fingal Candidate Gemma O'Doherty blasts Grand Hotel Malahide for shunning pro life group
Independent Fingal Candidate Gemma O'Doherty has called on people to boycott Grand Hotel Malahide over its decision to cancel the meeting of local christian pro life group 'Fingal Witness' which was booked for Wednesday Night.

Ms O'Doherty said the Hotel cancelled the meeting publicly on its twitter account without informing the organisers first . The hotel is reported to have received phone calls from people opposed to the meeting taking place. 

Ms O'Doherty explained via her Facebook : 

when I first announced my candidacy in Fingal i was approached by a number of pro life groups in the area because I'm probably the only pro life candidate and the only candidate coming from a christian heritage approach . 

The local christian pro life group in malahide [fingal witness] contacted me and we're very keen to meet with me . This organisation Fingal Witness said lets hold a meeting . It was booked , they were reassured and credit card details were taken . The hotel contacted Fingal witness and said that they had got phone calls but they had not made any decision to cancel . I read online that it had been cancelled and I rang the organiser and he said no the hotel didn't tell me that so then I went onto the hotels twitter account and they had announced it publicly. Did not even have the decency to ring the organiser . How could you ever step foot in a hotel like that again . I'm asking every one of you to boycott that corrupt hotel . The grand hotel in Malahide . 
  
Ms O'Doherty added that the Meeting will now take place outside the Hotel .

from what i understand , fingal witness are doing great work , to think that any Hotel would shun people because of their beliefs in this day and age is quite disturbing to say the least
^
worse than the black and tans these hotels . this is why its so important we protect freedom of speech .
^
the iron curtain strikes again . we already know of the cosy relationship that exists between the gov and hotel owners . direct provision being one of them . this is censorship plain and simple .

just emailed my local councillors in South Dublin about this asking them to justify the spending given the homeless crisis and for their evidence to support the claim that lgbt people need rainbow crossings in order to feel supported . who says they dont already feel supported without the rainbow crossings , and what about support for homeless these are all questions we need to put to our councillors , treat everyone the same means no special treatment for one sexuality over another or no p

its shocking to think that a homeless person could be housed for 2 years with the money spent on a single Rainbow crossing .

a discussion on all of these issues is long overdue . a mature conversation needs to happen . we used to have good debates in Ireland up to about 20 years ago , until debating an issue became a crime almost , a thought crime anyway.
