I raised the issue of ongoing overcrowding at University of Limerick with Taoiseach Micheál Martin today.
In the Dáil today, I called for ‘temporary extraordinary measures’ to tackle a backlog in apprenticeships across the country. The Taoiseach said he would be open to seeing ‘what more we can do to accelerate without diluting the quality’.
Without announcing a sustainable transport alternative, the Government’s decision to abandon the second phase of the Limerick Northern Distributor Road is short-sighted.
Restrictions on burning turf, coal and briquettes will only work if people have an affordable alternative, but the Government is not providing such an alternative.
