    and none see his vision and outlook as something which has and continues to make the world a better place I am delighted that Sligo is the first county in Ireland to issue an official invite for Pope Francis to visit should he attend the World Meeting of Families in Dublin in 2018 This would be only the second time a Pope has visited Ireland and anyone old enough to remember the visit of John Paul II in 1979 will remember the profound impact he had across the country As well as the various beauty spots across Sligo Innishmurray is one of Europe s oldest surviving monastic settlements and as fine an example of our Christian heritage as you ll see anywhere Last time the Pope made it as far North as Knock hopefully this time he ll make it up the N4 to Sligo she added The invite will be issued to the Pope via the Papal Nuncio in Dublin Archbishop Charles Brown Pope Francis recently attended the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia when it was announced that the next meeting would take place in Dublin in 2018 The Pope is expected to attend that event which will see him make the 2 500km trip from Rome to Dublin By Marie On 6 December 2015 In News share tweet 1 0 Childcare Cost Among Highest in EU For the many parents who attempt to juggle both work and family commitments in Ireland a significant hurdle that needs to be overcome is access to quality affordable childcare According to the OECD the average cost of childcare across its member countries is equivalent to 12 of a family s income if only this were true in the Irish context where average cost of childcare represents a massive 35 of a family s income Even for higher earners the percentage is 24 still double the OECD average As a percentage of wages net childcare costs in Ireland are the highest in the EU Childcare costs can represent the equivalent of a second mortgage for families and can make it uneconomic for both parents to work And where does that leave those on low incomes or single parent families for whom the relative cost of childcare is even higher 40 of average income for a single parent on an average income This is particularly pertinent in Ireland where over 25 of all families with children are one parent families with 87 of them headed by women Clearly these high costs represent a natural barrier deterrent for those parents seeking to leave the live register and re enter employment Last year as part of the European Commission s analysis of the Irish economy and the structural challenges which must be addressed if Ireland s economic recovery is to be sustained access to affordable childcare was identified as a priority issue in particular for women and for low income families 6 months ago the Commission published it s Country Report on Ireland and again made the point that the limited availability and high cost of childcare remains a significant barrier to increased female labour market participation Women s employment rate at 61 remains 10 lower than men s The report concluded that No progress was made in improving access to more affordable and full time childcare This contributes to Ireland having one of the highest proportions of people living in households with low work intensity in the EU increasing the risk of social exclusion and child poverty A recent survey carried out by a national newspaper shows that it costs up to 1 150 a month for a creche place for a baby And for both a baby and toddler the cost can rise as high as 2 035 per month But to meet that monthly expense for two children a mother would need to earn 30 000 a year which after tax would leave her with 2 071 a month or virtually nothing once the childcare costs were paid The average price of a creche place in the survey was 888 for a baby and 1 596 for two children so you d need to earn 22 000 a year just to break even on work as that salary leaves you with just 1 611 a month after tax And despite stagnant wages parents have also been hit with rises in childcare costs in the last year with Central Statistic Office figures showing a 2 4pc increase A recent survey found 63pc were struggling to meet their childcare costs while 84pc of stay at home mothers wanted to work in some capacity but felt trapped by childcare costs Childcare providers also have huge overheads and costs to meet Most qualified childcare workers are just earning the minimum wage and are finding it hard to make ends meet This is a huge issue for parents childcare providers and society in general and one that has failed to be tackled by previous and present governments By Marie On 2 December 2015 In News share tweet 1 0 School Books Lack of Rental Scheme School book rental schemes remove the need for parents to purchase new textbooks and are also considered as a viable alternative to annual second hand book sales Schools with established schemes indicated an average saving to parents of almost eighty per cent of the cost of buying new books School principals and boards of management not currently providing access to the book rental scheme are being urged to do so for the sake of hard pressed families The scheme currently being run in 90 of primary schools allows pupils to pay a lower amount for the books they need provided they are returned at the end of the year At second level the scheme is operated over three years and requires a deposit Independent County Councillor and Guidance Counsellor at St Mary s College in Ballisodare Marie Casserly says that unfortunately the uptake in secondary schools is much lower at just 64

the scheme is operated over three years and requires a deposit Independent County Councillor and Guidance Counsellor at St Mary s College in Ballisodare Marie Casserly says that unfortunately the uptake in secondary schools is much lower at just 64 According to Ms Casserly the scheme is excellent as it cuts out the hassle of buying books in August dramatically cuts down on costs for parents and reduces waste A survey has found that parents will spend an average of almost 400 per child on uniforms and books this September A study by the Irish League of Credit Unions found that almost a third of parents find themselves in debt covering back to school costs The survey found that uniforms can cost an average of 166 for primary school children and 258 for secondary school students School books for primary school children cost an average of 106 and 213 for secondary school students Over two thirds of those surveyed said the costs will impact their ability to pay household bills or afford a holiday The survey found that 20 of parents surveyed said they will need to borrow to meet the costs of going back to school It is unfair that not all parents have and students have access to it It is an extremely costly time of year for parents having to pay for buses school uniforms art supplies and equipment for different subjects not to mention voluntary contributions to schools and school insurance By Marie On 2 December 2015 In News share tweet 1 0 Rural Crime Casserly alarmed at rural crime figures for Sligo Leitrim South Donegal Speaking this week Independent Councillor and Dáil candidate Marie Casserly expressed alarm that three of the top six highest areas for recorded crime last year in Connacht and Ulster were located in the Sligo Leitrim constituency The statistics

it 15th on the national index Carrick on Shannon station recorded 6 1 crimes per 100 of the population placing it in 35th position nationally The third highest station for crime in the constituency

Letterkenny Ballinasloe and Galway In addition Bundoran Sligo and Carrick on Shannon all record the highest incidence of crime of any

  • Lack of Transparency - Waste & Recycling Industries - Marie Casserly
    on my consultations with the executive of the local authority it has become apparent that there is no control over the companies that run the waste collection services in each county While the companies must be registered with the NWCPO National Waste Collection Permit Office there is no control over the costs charged to the users both domestic and commercial In the last 5 years the costs of collection have increased steadily The most significant increase has been in the standing charges levied by the companies which have increased by over 400 Given that householders are obliged to have an account with a waste provider it is absolutely necessary that the sector is regulated and that some independent body would have the power to review and impose limits on any increase that is proposed by the companies The number of providers in county Sligo and the surrounding counties and areas is limited which leads to the possibility that collusion between providers in relation to price My proposal that the Minister appoint an ombudsman would provide consumers with a service in which to raise issues and lodge complaints in relation to the service provided and the price charged Previous Employment Regulation
