THE Dominican order is to leave Waterford after almost 800 years in the city.

Negotiations about the future of the church and priory at Bridge Street, Waterford, are “underway with a number of parties”, the order said.

Waterford fine Gael Senator John Cummins has described the progress which has been made on the purchase of the former Waterford Crystal site for use by the new South east technological University as an “important milestone”. the department of Public expenditure has been engaged in discussions over the 36-acre site on the Cork road where 1,000 people were once em ployed by the glass company. It has been proposed as a site for student accommodation, after Higher Education Minister Simon Harriss said expanding the footprint of the university in Waterford was a priority for the Government.SenatorCummins said: “the government have been categoric in their commitment to expand ing the footprint of the South east technological University campus in Waterford city and I have had extensive dialogue with both the tánaiste Leo Varadkar and Minister Harris on this matter for a considerable period of time.

Harvesting the Festival crowds

He referred to the “joyful exuberance of Jack’s short life,” and said Jack was full of the joy of living.

Waterford Council has granted planning approval for an affordable and social Housing scheme in farrangarret, ardmore.thisis located on Waterford Council land beside ardmore fire Station and the local school. It will consist of a mix of 31 houses, 25% of which will be social. the balance will be privately owned houses. the scheme will be a mix of 2/3/4 bedroom private and social houses, for full-time, local residents. Waterford Council will soon make a public request to qualifying persons, seeking them to formally register their interest in acquiring a home on this development..

“The market traders enjoyed swift trade and the food events at restaurants across the city were booked up.

AT the most recent meeting of Waterford City and County Council, local Fianna Fail Councillor Eamon Quinlan criticised energy providers, urging the council to combat what he called the ‘ridiculous price increases’ that will hit consumers.CllrQuinlan pointed to the fact that all local authorities apply commercial rates on the physical infrastructure of energy companies within their county boundaries.

“He loved the tractor, the cattle, the ponies and the horses.”according to fr fitzgerald, Jack was “into race riding, rugby, Gaelic, swimming, diving, and especially driving. every day for him [was] a joyous adventure in living. the all-embracing experience of his life can be expressed in one word — ‘love’.”

He added: “I cannot overstate the importance of this site from both a practical and symbolic perspective.“Notonly will it future-proof the growth of the university in Waterford, it will also give an enormous lift to the people of Waterford to know that a site which once employed thou sands of people will be repur posed to educate and accom modate the next generation of young workers.”

Henry de Bromhead took over the stables from his father Harry and has been a very successful trainer and was a Grand National winner in 2021, and the winner of two Cheltenham Gold Cups at the festivals there in 2021 and 2022.

Senator Cummins said it was an “important milestone” for the wider community of Waterford as it meant confirmation of “ringfenced funding” for the purchase.

the Waterford Crystal plant was built in the early 1970s and was left vacant after operations came to a halt in 2009. Builder Noel frisby bought it in 2013, with close to €500,000 spent on the three-storey block to ready it for redevelopment.

“I am glad to report [today] that Minister Harris has con firmed to me that he has ‘re served funding capacity for such an expansion and this is a very clear and tangible sign of that priority and commitment’,” he continued..

Senator Cummins added that the redevelopment of the plant would “give an enormous lift to the people of Waterford to know that a site which once employed thousands of people will be re purposed to educate and accom modate the next generation of young workers”.

the plant once employed more than 3,000 people and was a flagship industry for the area.

DESPITE the orange weather warning forcing the closure of the Harvest Festival on the Sunday, tens of thousands of festivalgoers flocked to the city to revel in the atmosphere on Friday and Saturday.Festival director Shona Dubois said: “We are thrilled to have experienced absolutely huge support for the Harvest Festival over the weekend, there were visitors

Pat Davitt, iPAV Chief Executive, said however, that there was a noticeable change

iPAV’s barometer records prices actually achieved by auctioneers rather than asking prices, for three and fourbedroom semi-detached homes and two-bedroom apartments. in the three-bedroom category among the highest increases were Galway City (12.9%), Clare (11.52%) Carlow (10.98%) then Waterford (10.77%).inthefour-bedroom category the top increases took place in Roscommon (10.42%); Wicklow (10.28%); Clare 9.81%) and Limerick (9.79%).

Property prices rise but rate hikes will curb growth

He said it was disappointing to see last week’s CSO data showing the residential sector reduce its volume of output by 2.9% on a seasonally adjusted basis between Quarter 1 2022 and Quarter 2 2022.

Of the 74,000 visitors who visited the museums in 2022, 57% of those were international visitors, 16% were day trippers from ireland and the remaining 27% were irish holidaymakers.

“Today is an historic day for the arts in Ireland and a significant change to the way Ireland recognises and supports her artists,” said arts Minister Catherine Martin, as 2,000 artists, including 33 from Waterford, were approved for the new Basic Income for the arts pilot scheme. over 9,000 applications were made under the scheme with over 8,200 assessed

THE Waterford Treasures collection of museums is fast becoming Waterford’s most popular visitor attraction, as visitor numbers grew by 63%. by the beginning of September 2022, the museums had attracted some 74,000 visitors since opening on January 1st 2022, representing an increase of 47,009 visitors on 2021.

Minister butler added: “The bus service, its drivers and staff are all deeply embedded in the communities which they facilitate. They are very well-known and liked by the many patrons of their services from young schoolgoers and college students to older people travelling into Waterford for medical appointments and other business. i am also very sorry to hear of the redundancies the company has had to make in the wake of this decision.”

However, applicants are being encouraged to get in touch with SETU directly to discuss their options before applying to make sure they are making the correct choices.Potential applicants and people considering CAO offers can be confident in their course decision by reading course pages thoroughly, taking a virtual tour, or asking questions.

Every electronic transaction has the potential for fraud.

But that’s OK so long as I have a choice.

I was there recently, enjoy ing what is Ireland’s last great strand meeting.

The sun shone on happy race goers of all ages, from infants in buggies to ancients in wheel chairs, and everyone seemed to be having a great time.

It’s not that the punters were incapable of paying by other means.Most of them, I’d guess, had debit or credit cards in their wallets.Many of them would have had Revolut accounts.

I don’t like rooting a card from my wallet when there are strangers pressing all around me and paying via an app has the additional hazard that your phone could be out of range or out of battery.

As I said, there’s a time and a place for everything.

But the many small transac tions between bookmakers and punters were nearly all made

Because I am also old enough to remember a time when trad ers operated under the slogan that ‘the customer is always right’. And not just at Laytown races.

These racegoers laid their bets and bought their drinks with cash not because they are antediluvians who can’t master modern payment systems, but simply because, in the circum stances, cash was more conve nient.

T

It is often convenient to pay with a quick tap but, on the downside, that makes it harder to keep a track of spending and increases the risk of fraud.

I am an older person. Older than ATMs, older than mobile phones, older than debit cards, older than online credit trans fers.Ican’t see how any of these payment systems present par ticular problems for old people and I am happy to use them all ...Whatsometimes.Iwant is a choice.

in cash. Some of the bookies did accept payment by card, an innovation for Laytown, as did some of the food and drink stalls.Butalmost all the exchanges I witnessed involved cash.

If banks get their way, I won’t. It is beside the point, but much of the comment on the move to a cashless society suggests that it will be particularly hard on older people.

So, like nearly everyone else at Laytown races, I chose to pay with cash.

That’s what the banks that are trying to push us towards a cashless society fail to un

Why I won’t be putting my money on a cashless society

In the days before Covid I made about two such transac tions a week, when I drew my spending money from an ATM. Now I make two a day.

opinion&comment

It’s not relevant to the races, but most would have done some online shopping and paid bills by credit transfer.

I understand the argument but I don’t think it is true.

derstand. We are, most of us most of the time, quite happy to pay by electronic means, but it doesn’t always suit us and we want the cash option.

Michael Wolsey

When you are standing in line to pay a trackside bookie, sur rounded by a milling crowd of punters, it is easier and safer to pull a few quid from your pock et or purse, and a lot quicker, since bookies will complete the transaction in half the time it takes them to operate an elec tronic payment device.

Card and phone transactions now account for more than 60% of all payments made in Ireland.Idon’t think the switch was entirely voluntary – during the Covid crisis many traders gave us no choice but to pay by card. The habit has stuck and some of them still insist on it.

The same goes for paying at a busy food stall.

There’s not a lot of serious betting at Laytown, since pre dicting the outcome of a race run on sand is about as random as picking the winner of the Aintree Grand National.

HERE’S a time and a place for everything, they say. And the time for spending real cash money is at the races, particularly when the place is that most unusual of venues, the beach at Laytown in Co Meath.

She’s been flighty since her parents died, but this time - or so says her hastily written note - she’s gone for good.

Former model Lady V presumes Molly’s just off taking drugs and sleeping with strangers - which is fine by her. Cousin Anne, tired of living in Molly’s shadow, is keeping quiet, and cousin Bobby is distracted by his own issues.

hIS new comedy thriller, with Daisy May Cooper and Selin hizli, revolved around a budding friendship. Nic is grieving a loss that she can’t share with anyone whilst stuck in a depressing marriage. Only her son, Ollie who she adores, keeps her going. But when Jen arrives in town her life is lit up with laughter and through this kindred soul her dark secret starts to bubble up. “Female friendship at its naughtiest and most intoxicating. That is until everything unravels. A twisted comedy thriller about two mums, marital angst, maternal paranoia and a dead cat.” Sounds fun.
