Money ‘still there’ for new-look city WATERFORD Council is looking for a new developer for the North Quays regeneration project. The huge construction scheme has gone back on the market after the original developer, Falcon Real Estate, was unable to meet funding requirements. The council says it is fully committed to completing the project and Government sources are insisting that money is still on the table for the  wider development which would link both sides of the city with a new bridge and replace Plunkett Station with a new transport hub. But, while everyone remains hopeful, there is no doubt that a blow has been dealt to the ambitious development, which was to have  included a 15-storey hotel and conference centre, twin blocks of offices, 300 apartments and an open public space. Falcon had committed €400m to the project  but was unable to meet funding conditions  by the deadline of  May 15. The council said the deadline had already been extended

and it now needed to move forward and find another developer. Falcon can re-enter the process if it secures the necessary funding,  said council chief executive Michael Walsh.  The council has received assurances from Government that the €110m in State funding pledged last November is still on the table. and a spokesperson for the Department of Housing said the approval remains in place. Senator John Cummins said terminating the contract with Falcon Real Estate would not stop the North Quays project. The Fine Gael senator, who has been involved with the project from its outset, said some people may feel the last few years have been wasted “but that is absolutely not the case”. “The reality is much of that time has been spent assembling the site and resolving title which is only recently in full ownership of Waterford council and this is now an exceptionally valuable asset for our city,” he said.

Waterford Institute of Technology and Letterkenny IT have been named as Basketball Ireland Centres of Excellence.

THE new manager of Waterford FC plans to dip into the transfer market to get his club off the bottom of the Airtricity League premier division. Marc Bircham says he has been promised summer transfer funds to steer the Blues away from relegation. He watched the side lose his first two games in charge, going down 0-1 to Derry and 1-2 to Finn Harps who won with two lates goals at the RSC.

It wasn’t the start he wanted but strong performances lifted some of the gloom of recent weeks when Covid fears forced them to forfeit one match and field a youth team in another. Former Millwall and Queens Park Rangers player Bircham (43) is Waterford’s fourth manager in a year. He was born in London but qualified to play for Canada. He was first-team coach at QPR from 2016 to 2018 and assistant manager at Arizona United, Chicago

Fire and Millwall. He will be unable to buy players until the international transfer window opens in July. “There will be investment in the team to bring in new players, which I’ve been promised in the July transfer window,” he said. “We just have to get as many points as we can before that, which is the most important thing..” Picture: Waterford’s Eric Molloy foils Derry’s Ronan Boyce.

Money is ‘still there’ for new city

<<From front page

special meeting of Waterford City and County Council. Mr Walsh told  councillors that contracts were not signed in time by Falcon Real Estate Development and they would be going “back to the marketplace” to seek new developers. He explained that documentation was provided to the council from a Falcon representative, which was supposed to provide evidence of funding.  But the council’s legal team concluded that  the documentation did not pass the test of a binding agreement. Both the North Quays and Michael Street lands will now be put back on the market. The council, in a statement, said it has been “working in the background to undertake a fundamental reappraisal of the North Quays Scheme ”. “We will be proposing to engage with the marketplace on a revised proposal in the coming week,” it said.

Debenham staff accept deal but hit at union FORMER staff of Debenhams in Waterford, who had been protesting since the store closed more than a year ago, have ended their fight for a better redunadancy payment. They have accepted a Government offer of a €3 million training fund, plus statutory redundancy. Staff from Debenhams stores across the country voted to accept the training, intended to help them find other work and to encourage business startups. They voted against the offer in January but accepted it by 319 votes to 102, after clarification from their union, Mandate. Some 400 members did not vote. Gerry Light, Mandate General Secretary, paid tribute to the campaigners . “The ballot outcome is testament to the strong will and resilience of our striking members,” he said. But shop stewards for the workers were highly critical of Mandate. “Once Mandate saw our willingness to fight they should have thrown their full weight behind us and pressured ICTU to do likewise,” the shop stewards said in a statement. They said Mandate “at official level consistently adopted a passive minimalist approach living in fear of the threat of

injunctions and the Industrial Relations Act which, by design, is intended to make industrial struggle weak and ineffective.” The shop stewards also criticised the Government. “On three separate occasions the government parties voted in the Dáil against proposals which would have helped resolve our dispute or aided workers who may find themselves in a similar situation in the future,” they said. “Furthermore the Taoiseach and Táinaiste had ample opportunity to confirm, when it was put to them numerous times by opposition deputies, that KPMG ought not to attempt to grab stock during the Level Five lockdown, but they refused to do so. They were as instrumental as the courts and the gardaí in facilitating the scabbing operations of recent weeks.” The Waterford workers organised a farewell get-together on Saturday for supporters of their 406-day campaign. Shop steward Michelle Gavin thanked those who had supported them. The event closed with the symbolic dismantling of the strikers’ makeshift hut. They said signed placards and banners would be saved as a reminder of their struggle.

Dental waiting lists now ‘at crisis point’ DENTAL servcies in Waterford are at “crisis point”, a TD has claimed. David Cullinane, who is Sinn Féin’s health spokesperson, said the dental wait times for public patients in Waterford and the South East are exceptionally long, with a 43% drop in dentists signed up to the Dental Treatment Services Scheme. “The number of dentists signed up to the scheme in Waterford has reduced from 56 to 32 in the last five years,” he said. “This is one of the highest declines in the state. “This crisis is underlined in the collapse in spending on dental treatment from a high of

€60m to just over €40m.” Mr Cullinane said medical card patients were waiting longer for treatment because fewer dentists were signed up to the scheme. “The burden of this disproportionately falls on lower income groups, especially those who rely on medical cards,” he said. Mr Cullinane called for “significant additional investment” in public dental capacity. “We need root and branch reform if we are to stand any chance of improving care and reducing wait times,” he said. He said a record number of children were waiting for dental treatment under general anaesthetic.

Cyber attack causes chaos at hospital STAFF at University Hospital Waterford have managed to maintain a service in the emergency department despite the loss of its IT system caused by cyber criminals. However, there have been long delays and chaos at the hospital with appointments cancelled and many nonemergency services closed completely. Management at UHW and at Kilcreene Regional Orthopaedic Hospital have announced the clsoure of all outpatient clinics, and all diagnostics including x-ray, CT scans, MRI appointments and cardiac investigations, all elective inpatient and day case procedures and all endoscopy services. Patients will be contacted directly if any of these services

can go ahead for them. UHW, in a statement, says it would “like to remind the public that the Emergency Department is for emergency services only”. Updates on all HSE services are being posted at: https://www2.hse.ie/ health-service-disruptions/ Most community healthcare appointments - health centres, home help, mental health clinics, therapists and support workers from disability services - are being maintained. Updates for these services in the South East are being being posted at www.twitter.com/ SouthEastCH There has been no disruption to the HSE’s Covid 19 vaccination centre in Waterford. People can continue to register for and will receive vaccine appointments for the centre at the WIT arena.

Waterford’s walk-in testing centre is also operating fully. Sinn Féin’s spokesperson on Health, the Waterford TD David Cullinane, has said that the cyberattacks on the Department of Health and the HSE make it imperative that the IT modernisation programme is stepped up and completed rapidly. He said the health IT infrastructure has not been fit for purpose for more than a decade, “Most of the Department of Health and HSE’s computers run on an operating system which is no longer supported, from a security perspective, by its developer,” said Mr Cullinane. “Integral radiology equipment runs on software so old that the HSE has not upgraded its operating systems.”

Coffee Lane on new path

THREE Waterford producers have won contracts to supply Aldi’s 145 stores. Coffee House Lane will supply three of its coffees. Frothing Ferments will supply its Lemon and Lime Water Kefir and Iasc Seafood Bar will supply its Iasc Abhaile Tartar Sauce. They are part of the Grow with Aldi programme which this year received its highest number of entrants. “Being part of the Grow With Aldi programme has

been fantastic for our business during these unprecedented times,” said Mark Bergin of Coffee House Lane (pictured). “The mentoring provided by the team has been exceptional and hugely appreciated. Having our products on Aldi shelves nationwide is a very proud moment for all of us here at Coffee House Lane.” SuperValu, meanwhile, has announced that two Waterford producers have successfully completed its Food Academy programme and their

Ports urged to unite for Brexit bypass

WATERFORD Council is backing a call for the ports of Belview and Rosslare to operate a joint approach to provide business with a Brexit bypass to the European mainland. The City and County Council unanimously passed motions calling on the Government, “in light of Brexit and other market influences’’, to recognise the strategic value of the ports. They called for expansion of Rosslare Europort and the advance construction of Rosslare Europort Harbour Access Road. The motions urged “amalgamation of the ports’ structure and governance to create a Tier 1 port as a combined entity”. The motions arose from a meeting of the South East First Citizens Forum They coincided with the announcement of a new freight train service linking Belview with Ballina Inland Port in Mayo. The new rail service – which begins from the end of June -  has the potential to replace as many as 5,000 truck movements a year..

Humble Hawthorn – Magnificent Mayflower

My favourite Hawthorn tree near Newcastle (Photo: JC Ivory) Over the last couple of weeks the countryside has become adorned and lit up with an exuberance of snowy white blossoms. Hedgerows, field boundaries and trees seem to be dressed as for a wedding or a communion. What is responsible for this resplendent erumpent display? It is the Hawthorn (Crataegus monogyna). This native, deciduous tree, which in winter looks so stark, bleak, gnarly and tough with vicious thorns, in May breaks into wonderous blossom. The timing of its’ flowering gives rise to its more common name the Mayflower. It is the white blossom of the Hawthorn that Shakespeare refers to as “the darling buds of May” in one of his most famous sonnets – Sonnet No. 18: Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and more temperate: Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,

the woman in the window Netflix now

THIS tragicomic tale of a thirtysomething mother with a terrible secret serves as a keeneyed portrait of modern Ireland,’ wrote one reviwer across the water in the UK. Feeney has published three acclaimed collections of poetry before turning to her first novel, in which a mother of three in her late 30s is admitted to hospital after suddenly collapsing. It’s eight months since she was diagnosed with terminal cancer, but she has put off telling her husband (and sons) and instead Googles drugs and cures alongside the mundane business of her daily life.

ON June 22, 1921, King George V and Queen Mary arrived in Belfast for the official opening of the first Northern Ireland parliament. The visit was the culmination of three centuries of history — and three years of political brinkmanship and brutal communal violence. The occasion marked the creation of the new state of Northern Ireland. A line had been drawn on the map – a new border that separated the north and south of the island. One hundred years on, this is the incredible story of the dramatic events that led to the partition of Ireland.

ANY thriller with ‘window’ in its title inevitably has to compete with Hitchcock’s Rear Window (and a 1944 movie of the same name), in which a photographer is confined to a wheelchair in his apartment in Greenwich Village, Manhattan after an accident and witnesses a brutal crime through his rear window. In The Woman in the Window, confined by her agoraphobia, Anna Fox (Amy Adams) finds herself keeping tabs on the new family across the street through the windows of her NYC home only to witness a brutal crime. Confusing but nevertheless nerve-shredding watch.

Andy Warhol and Keith Haring Gormley’s, South Frederick Street, Dublin

WITH summer (sometimes) upon us, thoughts turn to all things Med, particularly since we can’t go anywhere near the Med for the forseeable future. But you can alway bring (some) of the Med to you, and what better way than a scrumptious bottle of Italian wine. Spuervalu’s Italian wine sale now features 5060 wines on offer, including 12 ‘guest’ wines — wines from outside its normal range. So there really is no excuse. Our pick is the Corte alle Mine Vino Nobile di Montepulciano 2016, €15 (down from €19.99). You can actually sing that name, out loud, in the garden, as the rain falls and dream of the Med.

ART lovers have a unique opportunity to see works by two of the world’s most loved pop artists — Andy Warhol and Keith Haring — at a new exhibition in Dublin, at Gormleys Fine Art, running until June 13. It includes 20 important works spanning both artists’ careers - from Warhol’s 1960’s Icons series to Haring’s famed 1986-89 Pop Shop works. James Gormley (pictured) said of the exhibition: “This is a rare opportunity to see both artists’ work showcased together, and we have never had a substantial Haring exhibition in Ireland before.” Go before it’s gone!

nailbomber: manhunt Netflix now NAIL Bomber: Manhunt is a documentary that analyses the crimes of David Copeland, a farright extremist who murdered three people and injured hundreds more using homemade nail bombs in his attacks on London back in 1999. Copeland’s targets were mostly LGBTQ+ people, as well as London’s black and Bangladeshi communities. This riveting documentary not only details Copeland’s motivations and crimes but also interviews members of the Brick Lane, Brixton and Soho neighbourhoods who came together in the face of these atrocities.

app of the week

The Darling Buds of May (Photo: JC Ivory) The Hawthorn is known by many names – Mayflower, Maybush, Quickthorn, Hagthorn, Haw, Maythorn, May, Mayblossom, Bread and Cheese Tree and the Fairy Tree. The Hawthorn has long been associated with the fairy folk in Irish folklore. Fairy rings and Hawthorn trees seem to go hand in hand. To this day you will see many a field with isolated Hawthorn trees and an untouched circle around it where the farmer dare not touch it for fear of incurring the wrath of the fairy folk. The Hawthorn’s genus name Crataegus comes from the Greek kratos, which means strength and refers to the hardness of the Hawthorn’s wood.

In Loving Memory

Acknowledgement and 1st Anniversary ANN LEAHY

Unseen and unheard but always near, So loved, so missed, so very dear

4th Anniversary ENA CONNOLLY

26th Anniversary Pauline Butler

3rd Anniversary PAT POWER

39th Anniversary WILLIAM (BILLY) FLYNN

In Memory of Joe “Maxi” Mc Donald who died on May 23rd, 2018. The day you left and gained your wings, My heart just broke in two, I wish you could stay with me, But heaven needed you. You left with the memories, And I love you dearly still, No matter how much time goes by, You know I al;ways will, You were a very special person, With kindness in your heart, And the love we had together, Grows stronger we’re apart. I know I can’ t bring you back, Although I wish it every day, But a piece of me went with you, The day you went away. - Sadly missed by your loving wife Kathleen I cried when you passed away, I still cry today, Although I loved you dearly, I couldn’t make you stay. Your golden heart stopped beating, Hard-working hands at rest, God broke my heart to prove to me, He only takes the best. The world has many heroes, Some you’d know by name, They give their best of what they do, And they deserve their fame. But among of all the heroes, This world has ever had, There is no one I admired more, The one we called our Dad. - Sadly missed by your sons Ian, Daryl, Damien, Stuart and your daughter Sinead, your Daughter in law Vera, and all your grandchildren & greatgrandchildren. Craig, Bradley, Jordan, Dylan, Ian Junior, Scott, Jayden, Kelsey, Keeva, Thomas, and Great Grandchild Darla

6th Anniversary Kate Healy

Ann Leahy, late of Meadowbrook, Tramore, Co. Waterford who died on 25th May 2020.

In loving memory of Ellen (Nellie) O’Neill, late of Pearse Park who died on 24th May 2019. How do I write on paper, the feeling I have inside, How can I hide the heartache that’s with me since you died, And now it’s your anniversary, I would like to let you know, How much I love and miss you and wish you could come home, I know all my life I will miss you for you meant the world to me, I have such precious memories that others cannot see, They are mine to keep forever from which I’ll never part, I’ll hold them very close to me locked within my heart, In heaven one day I will find you and all the hurt will go, I’ll put my arms around you and say ‘Nellie, I love you so’. - Sadly missed, your loving husband Michael xxx. Mam, No more will we hear you call our names, or hear you say those old refrains, And when old times we do recall, that’s when we miss you most of all, Memories we keep one by one, things you have said, songs you have sung, They bring back a smile and often a tear, and always a wish that you were still here, We hold you close within our hearts and there you shall remain, To walk with us throughout our lives, until wee meet again. - Always remembered and loved, your daughters Joan, Liz and Helen, sons Paddy, John and Michael, grandkids, great grandkids and great great grandkids xxxxx.

Empty arguments: How our TDs squander €25,000 a day

S

o what Covid restriction will you be most happy to abandon? Masks, many people will say. And I guess that if I had to wear one all day, while working in a surgery or school, I might agree. But popping on a mask before going into a shop or onto a train is not a hardship. In some Asian countries masks are routinely worn in public places as a precaution against ordinary colds and flus. I can’t see that happening in Ireland, but if there was some way the restriction could be organised, it would have my support. What I would particularly like to see ended are group meetings held on Zoom and the like. By the same token, I will be delighted when television and radio stations abandon the prac-

Michael Wolsey

tice of remote interviewing. I am tired of questions that never get answered by politicians posing in front of pretentiously stocked bookcases. Has anyone thought of producing fake covers to turn a collection of bestsellers into a display of intellectual strength? Maybe they have, and are in business already, converting chick lit into War and Peace and covering soft porn with The Complete Works of John Paul Sartre. A cover of My Fight for Irish Freedom would come in handy for younger Sinn Féin deputies who have never heard of Dan Breen and the lads and lassies of the left would find it a lot easier to attach a cover of Das Kapital than to struggle through Karl Marx’s tortuous logic. There is one Covid restriction our politicians are not planning to abandon just yet and it is the most pointless one of all: holding Dáil debates in the Conven-

tion Centre. The centre is still being used, at a cost of €25,000 a day, to enforce social distancing because, apparently, there is not enough room in Leinster House for a Covid-safe debate. Have you ever visited the Dáil or watched a Dáil debate on television? Well, I don’t blame you. But the few brave enough to give it a try will be well aware that, with the exception of Budget day and votes of confidence, Dáil debates usually take place in a near-empty chamber. Standing Orders insist that at least 20 TDs must be present when business is conducted in the Dáil ... unless it happens to be meeting in the morning. No kidding. TDs aren’t keen on early rising, so the quorum is 10 for debates before noon. In general, though, the figure is 20. That’s 20 out of 160. Yet the Ceann Comhairle sometimes has difficulty rounding up the quorum and it is rarely ex-

ceeded by more than a handful. Most Dáil debates could be socially distanced in my house, never mind Leinster House. This is a particular bugbear of mine. TDs claim they work in their offices during debates and keep an eye on matters on closed circuit screens. Maybe they do. But to me it seems disrespectful, and quite simply wrong, that affairs of State should be conducted in this way; that a TD, raising a matter of importance to his constituency, should be heard by only a scattering of deputies and a boredlooking minister who reads the reply a civil servant has written. Then there are the show rows when Mattie McGrath or Richard Boyd Barrett fly into a rage, gesticulating and hyperventilating to a point where you expect steam will soon rise from their ears. There are shouts of assent and

dissent in the chamber but when the camera pans out you realise these are coming from a couple of colleagues, on one side, and a few mates of the minister on the opposite rows. Other than those, Mattie and Richard are playing to an empty house. And to the gallery, of course, although there is no gallery at the Convention Centre. This sort of playacting breeds cynicism among the electorate in general and young voters in particular. They have sent representatives to Dáil Eireann. They would like to see them there. So, as we roll back the restrictions of Covid, there are two things I want. For the sake of the exchequer, TDs should get back to Leinster House. And for the sake of democracy, a new quorum of 40 should be agreed and enforced. A quarter-full chamber is not a lot to ask.
