    as saying that we do not have a bonus culture in Irish Water and I m very pleased to see that the independent report that reviewed the pay model in Ervia clearly says that there is not a bonus culture in Irish Water I stand over everything I said Jennings So what BAI said that it was of the view that the word was accurate and reasonable given the common understood meaning of the word do you accept that McNicholas I as I ve said from the beginning I take the view that Irish Water s pay model and Ervia s pay model is a performance based pay model that has been vindicated by the independent report which looked independently at the pay model and it says clearly absolutely unequivocally that there is not a bonus culture in Irish Water Jennings Do you accept the committee s judgement that it was fair for RTE to use the word bonuses McNicholas We re running around in circles here so let s be very clear You yourself is in a company which has just Talk over each other Jennings Do you accept it McNicholas I have always maintained that we do not have a bonus culture in Irish Water Jennings That s not what I asked you I asked whether you accepted the committee s ruling that it was fair for RTE to use the phrase bonus McNicholas The committee is entitled to make whatever judgement it makes I stand over everything I ve said about the pay model in Ervia and Irish Water Meanwhile

    you say it s the Regulator so that basically means like that nobody can be giving out to you Arnett Well no what I m saying in relation to the Regulator is that they ve imposed cost reduction targets on us and reducing staff numbers is one of those aspects that we would look at Reducing all of our costs across the board is what we have to focus on and year on year Finucane And so can I ask you about this thing about not to fill positions in the water utility without the oversight of this consultative group and the consultative group is composed of civil servants council officials and up to 10 representatives Arnett So in normal Finucane Is that Arnett That s absolutely correct so in normal industrial relations you d have management and unions represented Just to be very clear the number of staff that we agree at the start of the year is the ceiling in terms of the staff it s not the floor So we can t go above this certain level of staff But in during the year and you could imagine with a staffing level of almost 4 000 you would have people leaving and you would have people retiring and you can t leave frontline services unattended You cannot leave frontline services not delivered Finucane So they will be replaced Arnett Of course you would Finucane And that will be done by this IWCG Arnett It can be done within the local authorities themselves but it s to the end of the year and then we agree a new staffing level for the next year Finucane Right Arnett The central point is staff are down 10 so the story just isn t true Finucane Well no you can t say the story isn t true You ve just said that that is actually true so interpretated and I have noticed your skill when asked before why we have to give our PPS numbers you said in order to get your allowance but you never explained why a PPS number should be necessary in order to get an allowance Arnett Well PPS numbers are off the table so I won t go back over that territory Finucane It s a question of how the information is delivered is what I m really saying Meanwhile yesterday s Sunday Business Post reported New documents have provided further evidence of the secret deal with unions to fill vacancies among the council staff working for Irish Water It comes despite attempts by Irish Water and the Department of the Environment to downplay the existence of the deal when it was revealed by The Sunday Business Post last week The agreement provided for the filling of vacancies to maintain the agreed headcount figure of 4 300 council staff positions in the water services sector last year And it states that planned retirements of water service staff during the year will be automatically replaced Irish Water managing director John Tierney confirmed the existence of this agreement in an interview with The Sunday Business Post There could be an internal transfer in the local authority itself there could be a temporary filling up to the end of the year or it could be a post that is definitively required long term and you might fill it on a permanent basis he said Listen back to Marian Finucane interview in full here Sam Boal Photocall Ireland Posted in Misc and tagged Elizabeth

elected to the party s youth executive alongside Leo Varadkar and Lucinda Creighton My role was organiser with the youth wing meant I had canvassed in 25 constituencies with three different Fine Gael leaders I was on the Youth of the European People s Party conference circuit with Leo and Lucinda My involvement was obsessive The initial motivation to join was probably influenced by my grand uncle a member of the Michael Collins 12 apostles There was a trajectory I was 25 and needed to make a decision between politics or a professional career Enda Kenny was the guest of honour at the youth wing s national conference dinner held in Ennis in 2003 A leading member of the organisation rose to give the after dinner speech He got carried away with the moment and revealed to his audience the membership of a secret committee he had established subsequent to the hammering Fine Gael received at the 2002 election The committee consisted of his drinking mates who followed the same football club but had only a peripheral involvement in Young Fine Gael Lucinda was sitting opposite me and it was the first she had heard of it as well That incident crystallised a pattern of exclusion inequity and misogyny we had both felt If the ethos of YFG is built on a secret rejuvenation committee based on exclusivity by a group of young men I am asking you as leader of Fine Gael if I decide to commit my life to the vocation of politics will it be tone where the young boys club simply matures into an old boys club I wrote in my letter to Enda He rang me about it a couple of times He was

give them to homeless unemployed for free This drives up the price of other private apartments people might be saving to buy from what little savings they have as they are burdened with taxes paying for council houses they don t get to live in Thats fair Reply scottser September 16 2015 at 11 12 pm Because councils can defer or refuse you an offer of social housing on estate management grounds The council must provide emergency accommodation under the 1988 housing act Thats why Reply ahjayzis September 15 2015 at 11 06 pm The Dinny angle aside this isn t basically a prefab it s a prefabricated modular home They re not damp dank cheap things they meet building regs and are constructed to high standards The only real difference between them is they are constructed in a factory environment so in many ways are of higher quality than some bodge job masonry work where the contractor smuggled half the drylining for another job If you ve stayed in a hotel room recently it was most likely built in the same manner hotel rooms are often basically prefabs craned into place I really hope public ignorance doesn t stand in the way of these coming in they re a brilliant answer to

all seen The Dublin City Architect was on the Last Word this evening and covered this You don t just plop it down like a mobile home it s context specifically designed like any estate fits in with planning foundations are dug services are run surrounds are landscaped just like a traditional build but the big win is that while you re doing all that groundwork the house is being built at the same time Reply Steve September 15 2015 at 11 26 pm I wouldn t be surprised if the Dublin City Architect lived in a semi D in Knocklyon Reply ahjayzis September 15 2015 at 11 29 pm what o Anne September 15

I m all for people who need a safe warm place to live getting that I don t think modular homes are the answer Too many vested interests in this country who don t want to fix the supply issue with housing Modular homes are an insult to people You re going to create a subclass erecting these I don t care how they re sold to us how warm they are and how they re just like a building They re not decent homes for people Not long term And 100k is too high a price tag for a supposed temporary solution ahjayzis September 16 2015 at 12 03 am The DCA made that exact point they re for short term transitionary housing between being homeless and getting housed McVerry and others were very impressed with them They re meant to replace hotel accommodation so people have their own warm high spec safe homes and actual family autonomy around cooking etc while they wait for actual homes A bit of dignity That s a part of the supply chain that s missing along with actual permanent housing I mean the alternative is continued mangy hotel use with the inability to cook for your kids curfews and trying to hide from the paying guests what s your better plan Anne September 16 2015 at 12 09 am I don t think shacking people up in these will give them much dignity 100k is too much for a temporary solution Build proper homes How about that for an idea Frilly Keane September 16 2015 at 11 09 am Pikey

finally the government attempt to do something people still moaning like fupp If I was one of the real homeless not the I want a free house so I ll pretend homeless I d love a prefab Reply Anne

there were homes available to buy When credit is impossible to get unless you re tenured up to your eyeballs when first time buyers suddenly need a 20 deposit and so have to continue to save and crucially rent which gluts up the rental property turnover which reduces supply which sends rents skyrocketing beyond a capped rent supplement for the very poor you get homeless people people above them paying through the absolute nose on rent and people above them unable to find a buyer with the new 20 deposit bank clearance for a mortgage to buy for their house so they can buy their second That s a housing crisis Reply Anne September 16 2015 at 12 14 am Agree with all that Just on the first time buyers For first time buyers banks will be able to lend 90 per cent up to a value of 220 000 Above that the 80 per cent limit will apply Reply Anomanomanom September 16 2015 at 8 24 am I got my mortgage in 2008 Aib wanted 17 5 deposit of me because I was only 22 at the time So I gave 17 5 and that was on 215 000 So I can t see your point in the first time buyer argument I also rented at the hight of the boom When a one bed was ridiculously priced in rent So iv no sympathy for and yes there is loafs the fake homeless A family living in hotel although not on the street are homeless Someone on the housing list is not automatically homeless Reply Anomanomanom September 16 2015 at 8 25 am loafs Loads Reply Anne September 16 2015 at 9 04 am So you didn t have any problems coming up with a deposit for a house or paying high rent so you ve no sympathy for others who can t is that the gist
