School children to be introduced to gambling and animal abuse.
Who would have thought the school curriculum in Ireland would be introducing children to Gambling and animal abuse?
The Irish Greyhound Board, the IGB, are now offering students and teachers tours of Greyhound stadia around the country. These same racing tracks allow children to bet their pocket money as no age limit applies to anyone placing bets. The IGB, synonymous with trying to export Greyhounds to China and with cruel treatment towards unwanted hounds are using school tours to indoctrinate children into gambling.

You don't need to be a financial wizard to recognise that the global economy is struggling. For many businesses, this presents serious challenges to their very survival and sustainability.
However, a Galway-based businessman Geoffrey Canacan has created a unique formula for dealing those challenges that, he claims, can dramatically change results by supporting the individuals within an organisation as they learn to think and act in a more positive and affirming way. read full story / add a comment

The REPUBLICAN NETWORK for UNITY extends New Year’s greetings to our activists and supporters across the thirty-two counties of Ireland and abroad, to all allied Republican organisations or independent Republicans, who work separately from RNU, but on shared principles to achieve our common political objectives, and to all Republicans who today remain faithful to the sovereign and indefeasible right to national freedom enshrined in the 1916 Easter Proclamation. We particularly wish to remember all Irish Republican political prisoners, whether in Maghaberry, or Portlaoise or beyond, and especially their families, who are at all times in our hearts and thoughts but most especially as they endure the pain and hardship of separation from loved ones during the Christmas season and the advent of the New Year. read full story / add a comment
