Conversion therapy ban and civil liberties

Conversion therapy ban and civil liberties

Conversion therapy is a form of therapy available to same sex attracted people who want to be heterosexual and to transgender people who want to be cisgender. The therapy usually involves participants undergoing counselling and talk sessions with the intent of changing their thinking . Four countries in the world ban the practice . These are Brazil, Ecuador, Germany and Malta . To a large extent the ban in these countries was due to the type of therapy being offered . Ireland would become only the Fifth Country in the world to ban the practice should a Bill before the Seanad become Law . The

Should women walk behind their men

Should women walk behind their men

I live quite close to a Direct Provision centre in Dublin and I get to see a lot of the new arrivals out and about .

They both stopped

Planning System needs to change , more input from councillors needed

The planning system in Ireland is not a fair system and is deeply flawed . Planning Applications are decided on by a tiny number of people working in Local Authorities and An Bord Pleanala . At Local Authority level , just two civil servants called planning officers can sign off on a planning application . There could be a third person in the form of a manager involved but I'm not certain about this . But thats still only 3 people who can grant planning permission to a property developer for something that may have devastating consequences on peoples communities . At An Bord Pleanala level it gets

Vintage Leather Travel Case

that was to be a shabby chic antique bought at an auction in Oldtown during the Celtic Tiger years. Never found a location best suited to display it. I'm looking to do a swap as I would like to do a DIY project. Either some wooden kitchen chairs in good condition that need to be painted or a broken down American style 60/70s fridge to convert as storage. Examples added below. Please only respond if you have pictures of chairs or fridge that you can show me.
