This is a small piece of the story of Ireland, taken on its own it is a local issue but it is being echoed right now all across the country and it raises many other issues in its wake; housing, development, local democracy, accountability, sustainability. All important and interesting but to cover all of them would make a long article so this concentrates on just one – Water, because that’s something I’m passionate about and something that is too much taken for granted in this water rich country. I trust that readers are intelligent enough to make the links. read full story / add a comment

Professor Enda McDonagh, the Chairman of the Governing Body of UCC, has announced the identity and remit of the "external and independent" person to review allegations of "corruption", financial mismanagement and bullying at the university. In a move that seems destined to delay rather than supplant a formal enquiry, the remit is to exclude all issues that have already been put before the Governing Body and to include input from Professor Michael Shattock, a co-author of the OECD Report on Higher Education in Ireland that is central to UCC's own restructuring plans (http://www.ucc.ie/en/restructuring/). The oversight of the review process by the very people either involved in, or investigating, the excluded allegations would appear to generate the potential for significant conflicts of interest. read full story / add a comment
