    every session and have sent nominees in their place in the past The Minister s lack of understanding of agricultural matters has been exposed in his pursuit to change the workings of this programme but I am glad that he has now finally seen sense This will allow spouses siblings or children who have an interest in or work on the farm to part take in the Knowledge Transfer sessions and bring back the information they learn to the farmer and farm read more Ó Cuív calls on Minister to clarify future of Rural Social Scheme by Christina Nic Dhonnacha Nov 10 2015 Press Releases Fianna Fáil TD for Galway West Éamon Ó Cuív has called on the Minister for State at the Department of Social Protection Kevin Humphreys to outline whether the Rural Social Scheme will continue to exist in its current form Officials from the Department recently indicated that the programme could be amalgamated with the TÚS Scheme the CE Scheme and the Gateway Scheme Following questions from Deputy Ó Cuív in the Dáil earlier this month Minister Humphreys said that while no plans are in place to amalgamate the Rural Social Scheme with others however he conceded that this could change in line with rationalisation and resource commitments Deputy Ó Cuív explained Minster Humphreys needs to make it clear that he understands that the Rural Social Scheme is not an activation scheme It is a support programme for low income farmers who are willing to give a valuable contribution to their communities in return for a modest payment Its flexibility is conducive to farm work and has been key to the success of the scheme providing long term financial and social stability for recipients However it would appear that the Minister and his Department do not fully understand to workings of the scheme which they appear to categorise as a training programme for people to get back into full time employment Farmers who qualify for the Rural Social Scheme are already employed on their farms and are not seeking another full time job I am urging the Minister to protect this scheme and ensure that it remains as a stand alone programme which will continue to operate under the values on which it was founded read more Minister Coveney leaves farmers behind with long delays in direct payments Minister Coveney leaves farmers behind with long delays in direct payments Éamon Ó Cuív by Christina Nic Dhonnacha Nov 10 2015 Press Releases October returns show Minister s department 100m behind target 75 increase in delay issuing direct payments is another hit on farmers Fianna Fáil Agriculture Spokesperson Éamon Ó Cuív has slammed Minister Simon Coveney for the huge drop off in expenditure in his Department this year He has also hit out at the increased delays in CAP payments for farmers Deputy Ó Cuív explained The monthly exchequer returns for October show that gross expenditure in the Department of Agriculture is nearly 100 million behind target for the

    Port of regional significance which will not be in the in the interest of the development of the Port However I put down an amendment to the bill to delete this section but it was defeated The Minister has been adamant that he is going to proceed with this section of the Bill However the Minister in response to Deputy John O Mahony did state that he would not commence this section for 18 months I welcome this very much as it will give the people of Galway a chance to voice their opinion on this proposal in the forthcoming election and to reject outright the denial of national port status to Galway Galway Port Company has major plans for the development of the port but it would be absolutely vital for the success of these plans that the status of the Port would be retained as a National Port If the Minister s proposals goes through and if the status of Galway Port is changed there will be no National Port from south of Limerick around the very long western coast to Derry This would leave all of the national ports in the country between Dublin and Foynes with the west coast left bereft of a national port Once again Connaught is being treated as the Cinderella province The potential for Galway Port is immense with the opportunities to both export materials through Galway Port and import necessary raw materials through the port as well as an enormous possibility of developing the cruise trade to Galway The plan for the port was to relocate it outwards into the harbour freeing up the inner harbour area for redevelopment for commercial residential recreation and cultural use which is centrepiece of the inner harbour being used for marine leisure Share this Facebook
