Irish pork is being widely recalled because a percent of it was found dioxin contaminated. Governments acknowledge the harms and dangers of dioxin...a by-product of industrial chlorine.
But other far more dangerous sources of dioxin, namely typical chlorine-contaminated cigarettes, are being ignored. read full story / add a comment

Shell announced second quarter profits of $8,000,000,000 today. The company is currently exploiting Irish Natural gas off the west coast for which it is liable for zero royalties. While tax may be charged at some point in the future on Shell Ireland's profits, the Anglo-Dutch company has shown itself to be skilled in avoiding tax when it can.

Irish gas bills for domestic users are set to raise by 20% in September, with another 20% rise expected in the new year.
The Irish state owns no stake in the Corrib field.
New licences on the same giveaway terms are currently being issued for Irish offshore blocks in the Rockall Basin. http://www.dcenr.gov.ie/Natural/Petroleum+Affairs+Divis...d.htm read full story / add a comment

Irish women are often starved in labour despite there being significant benefits to eating - and significant risks to being starved.

Why hasn't Irish medical care caught up with the 21st Century?

Should women eat and drink freely in labour ?

It's amazing that an active politician, albeit of the right, has found himself in the privileged
position of both funding and financing a hate crime movie. The man know the laws of
his country and is an elected official thus we can all presume that the only reason that
he made it was for ego-indulgence. Lots of politicos do that- its called abuse of office.

How far we have come from being privileged to study the word and poetry of Islam?
Sufism provided many international writers with an area of study and cross-cultural
pollination that has benefited Western art and literature in the poetry of Hughes and
the writing of Lessing , to name two. Westergaard got an injunction to have his
image removed- it was opposed to fanaticism, not Islam.

Below is a letter that I recently sent to about 120 newspapers. A small number have got back to me to say they are featurising the story. Others are publishing it as a letter. The Sunday Business Post got in contact to see if it was sent to anyone else (I haven't heard from them since I said it was; my personal thought it that if it's not their scoop, they're not interested). It has also been sent to Tesco (without a reply, yet!).

The Irish language name for Smithfield Square in Dublin is Margadh na Feirme, which reflects the fact that the area has been a market for a very long time. Cattle were once driven in from Meath and sold on the square, as well as poultry and other livestock. Horses have always been traded here.
