Water pipes broken under the marlton Road

Water pipes seem to be broken under this streach of the Marlton Road

Thomas,

We have tested this water and there is no chlorine present so it must be surface water coming up through the road.

This often happens where the land is higher than the road.

Thanks again for letting us know as it is always worth checking.

Regards,

Declan Marnane,

Wicklow Area Engineer,

Wicklow towns roads

Wicklow County Council has been given €850,000 to maintain its roads in 2010. With three weeks gone in the year and 49 weeks to go, I estimate that between €500,000 and €600,000 of that annual fund has been spent already. One of today’s newspapers reported that approximately €150 million – I imagine that was an educated guess – is needed to repair the damage done to this country’s roads in recent times. That equates to an average of approximately €4 million for each affected local authority. It is encouraging that the Minister of State from the capital city is present in the Chamber. It seems that his senior colleague, the Minister for the Environment, Heritage and Local Government, who represents a neighbouring constituency, did not take this crisis seriously until it started to affect the city. As my colleagues have said, road infrastructure is the key to road safety. It is also the key to attracting investment, business and tourism. It is right that the road from the hotel in Glendalough to the upper lake car park was repaired last Sunday to make the road passable. However, another section of road not too far away, which is used for access by a milk lorry, was not repaired. If something positive is to come out of all of this, it is that local employment will have to be created as money is spent locally to repair our roads. If this is not addressed, we will have no road infrastructure in 12 months’ time.

 

Nice one Andrew, However I would argue that the roads in the town’s would need to be given priority as the car repair business is booming and workers cannot afford the constant repairs .This week alone I had to fork out 550 Euros for wheel Barings and the garage man tells me it was because of the various pot holes in and around the Abby street and Marlton road junction in Wicklow Town

Collecting my children from school is lethal as the potholes are getting bigger and bigger (near the Wicklow Montessori school) also outside the Abby National school

The whole road needs to be urgently resurfaced (Dublin Road & Abby Road ,Wicklow Town)

Irish Live Register: The seasonally adjusted Live Register total increased from 423,400 in November to 426,700 in December, an increase of 3,300, according to the CSO.  In 2009 there was an unadjusted increase in the Live Register of 133,577(+46.1%). This compares with an increase of 119,642 (+70.2%) in 2008. The unemployment rate still set to peak in summer 2010.
 
January of this year has represented the spike in claimant increases in any month, with a record 33,000, or 11.3%, rise – – 26,700 additions in February, 20,000 in March; 15,800 in April; 13,500 in May; 11,400 in June; 10,500 in July; 5,400 in August and 600 in September.

The total fell 3,000 in October. and rose 900 in November.

There was an annual increase of 88,273 (+45.4%) in the number of males on the Live Register in 2009 and a corresponding increase of 45,304 (+47.5%) in the number of females.

I have being unemployed since January last year 2009

I was told at the Dole office as I was self-employed for the past few years I was not entitled to any state benefits, no Jobseekers allowance, and I did not need to register every week.

so go and don’t bother us again attitude !

Since I do not qualify for the jobseekers allowance, it would appear that I do not show up as unemployed in the CSO stats.

So now extrapolate this fact to the approximately 65, 000 thousand or so other X self-employed people. Who lost their self support means they had.

These would be chippies, electricians, brick layers and people who have lost their own businesses

And you begin to get the real unemployment figures.

Like every other government in the world this government is fiddling the real figures

I would estimate the real unemployment figures are close to 536,000 Thousand.

The greatest scam is that I paid all my taxes and paid into the PRSI, I also paid all taxes for my staff and I end up with no entitlements!

The lesson here is don’t set up yourself in Business in Ireland

Just go out and try to get a job in the public service

There are approximately 360,000 thousand lucky people already looked after for life.

But if you take in the now subsidized financial sector, and the thousands of guanos and advisers

We must be looking at 600.000 thousand plus.

Every time you here someone talking about the good job the government is doing just ask the question who is paying their salaries, inevitably it is the taxpayers!

Nothing is going to change for the Unemployed unless they get out on to the streets and take action themselves

Join the union for the unemployed

Demand jobs now and not empty promises

Join the CAB to-day

Sign  up and demand an emergency jobs creation and up-skilling program for the unemployed to-day!

 


An open letter to all the TD’s of Ireland


This latest attempt to bypass earlier supreme court’s judgment on this matter is an abuse of the process of the court and no ordinary member of the public could have even dreamed of getting away with this typical stroke,
that could have being dreamed up in the back rooms of the Fiannia Fall mafia ridden lenster house!

Since Mr. Liam Carroll has now got the right decision (the one he wants) from the courts there is now a good chance that we the taxpayers in the country will have to foot the bill for his debts!

there has never being a better example of one law for the rich in this country and one law for the poor ,the people that have lost their homes during this week and all that will lose their homes in the months to come

We the ordinary people must not let this corrupt system walk all over us

This decision makes a mockery of the rule of law and questions the whole notion of equality within the Irish legal system, and the Irish regulation of its financial system!

 It is no better that a binNAMA republic!

Common sense please!

Local Wicklow Business need your support !

In the current climate all around the country the local authorities muss become more user friendly and business friendly

People putting their money down to create business activity must be helped and not hindered

Enterprise is the way forward and the penal rates must now be looked at again in fact I maintain that there is an onus now on the local authorities to refund local business up to 50 %

As business are struggling to meet their costs and cannot compete with the large shopping centres like Dumdum

We need to hold on to local commerce and taxing them out of existence is not the way forward

A bit of common sense is called for Ladies and Gentleman!
