  • School Books - Lack of Rental Scheme - Marie Casserly
    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 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

  • Rural Crime - Marie Casserly
    100 of the population putting 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 Sligo reported 5 6 crimes per 100 of the population It was the 47th highest station nationally The only stations recording higher crime than any of these across all of Ulster and Connacht were Letterkenny Ballinasloe and Galway In addition Bundoran Sligo and Carrick on Shannon all record the highest incidence of crime of any towns in their respective counties Not only does the closure of Garda stations across rural Ireland mean that people feel less safe in their homes it also means we see statistics like this which see three of the top six highest crime hotspots in Connacht and Ulster located in Sligo Leitrim said Marie There are entire counties including Mayo Monaghan and Roscommon with lower crime rates than recorded in Bundoran Sligo or Carrick on Shannon and the message to the Minister for Justice and Garda Commissioner is that the level of crime in rural towns must be reduced she added Between 2013 and 2015 ten Garda stations in counties Sligo and Leitrim were closed and Councillor Casserly said that rural policing must become a priority for the next government Any increase in crime in rural towns and cities cannot be tolerated While much is made of falling crime statistics nationally the fact is that some of the most serious crimes continue to increase including burglary theft and assaults Effective policing tagging of alleged offenders while on bail and strong co operation from the community can all help in the fight against crime she added Full details of The Times National Crime Survey 2015 can be found

  • Poor Mobile Signals - Marie Casserly
    s common to all networks and not just confined to remote areas I know of several people on the outskirts of large towns who can only make and receive calls in one corner of a room in their home She said that she had a complaint this week from an elderly woman only three miles from Sligo town who has to go out to her back garden to receive a call from her son or to send a text message This is not good enough Over 46 years ago in 1969 long before the computer age men landed on the moon and were able to send instant pictures and sound back to earth Yet in 2015 we are expected to put up with this situation Cllr Casserly said She said customers are paying for a service they are not getting Often they find themselves locked into a 24 month contract and are unable to switch to another service provider who might have a stronger signal in their particular area However if justice were to prevail the company should not be allowed to compel people to pay if they cannot or will not provide the service She said she is aware of cases where people spend up to half an hour trying to make a case to Customer Service most of which is spent holding on or talking to a machine Eventually they get through to somebody who tries to fob them off with false promises of efforts to improve the signal She said that if the mobile phone companies are not prepared to deal with the issue the Government should ask the Commission for Communications Regulation ComReg to intervene She said the issue of poor or no broadband coverage in rural areas is rightly highlighted on a regular basis but
