  • Pringle, Cllr MacGiollaEasbuig Call for Restoration of Bunbeg Cliff Rescue Service – Thomas Pringle TD
    value for money review by the Department of Transport However since its closure the decision has continued to raise considerable concern locally Thomas Pringle Independent TD for Donegal says that while the number of call outs may have been low when the review was carried out it did not take into account the potential for a successful adventure tourism industry to develop locally especially now with the Wild Atlantic Way established There is concern that the cessation of the cliff rescue in Bunbeg could impact on the tourism potential of the area New adventure tourism businesses are concerned that the lack of availability of a rescue service could impact on people s decisions whether to book a holiday or event in this part of Donegal continues Pringle Cllr Micheál Cholm Mac Giolla Easbuig who has been campaigning on the issue says the importance of the service and the need to have the cliff rescue service restored cannot be understated We have to think in terms of safety for the local people and for visitors to this part of Donegal It would also mean a significant boost in confidence in the area Thomas Pringle TD and Cllr Mac Giolla Easbuig have written to the Minister calling on him to give serious consideration to restarting the cliff rescue training in Bunbeg Be Sociable Share Previous Story Donegal Has Second Highest Number of Farm Assist in the Country Next Story Pringle Calls on Minister to Address Unfair Fishing Penalty Point System Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880 thomas pringle oir ie Latest News Look out for my General Election 2016 newsletter February

  • Donegal Has Second Highest Number of Farm Assist in the Country – Thomas Pringle TD
    Mayo having the highest with 1 614 Pringle had tabled the series of questions seeking a commitment from Minister Burton to increase Farm Assist supports back to pre Budget 2012 levels before significant cuts were made to income disregards and other secondary supports It is very important that Farm Assist is kept on the Government s agenda in the lead up to the Budget this year and especially with General Elections looming Considering the high number of part time farmers in Donegal the Government should be clear in its commitment to fund Farm Assist and its secondary supports and recognise the importance this payment has to farmers in Donegal The high number is also an indication of the existence of seasonal work patterns unique to Donegal Ultimately this is about income security for people who engage in part time farming and other seasonal work throughout the year explains Pringle Pringle asked the Minister how much it would cost the state to align income disregards for farm assist recipients to pre Budget 2012 levels the reply was 10m a year That s very little in comparison to the Department of Social Protection s yearly budget of 20 billion says Pringle So far the only commitment I am getting from the Minister is that the scheme will be kept under ongoing review but that there are no plans to change the current scheme criteria I take that to mean part time farmers are not priority despite rural development being the buzz word coming from the Government concludes Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story Pringle Calls on People to Attend NowDoc Protest in Letterkenny Next Story Pringle Cllr MacGiollaEasbuig Call for Restoration of Bunbeg Cliff Rescue Service Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked

  • Pringle Calls on People to Attend NowDoc Protest in Letterkenny – Thomas Pringle TD
    decision to hold a protest was made at a meeting in Gweedore last night to discuss the NowDoc services and the plans to implement a two week trial of a new arrangement to be implemented from the end of August Over 200 people were there visibly angry at what they see as another withdrawal of services from their communities explains Pringle The people want to show their opposition to the HSE and CAREDOC s decision to live test the proposed reduced NowDoc services over the next number of weeks because they are clearly not listening to their concerns says Pringle The meeting also heard concerns about government policy and rural Ireland Threats to rural post offices and now GP services paint a clear picture that the Government s policy has been to cut services in rural Ireland without having regard to the particular vulnerability of isolated communities in the first place Only two doctors will service the entire northern region of Donegal under the new system This is unacceptable so I urge people not only to come out in protest on Friday August 7 th but to contact their local GP to let them know they don t want cuts to the NowDoc service to happen as it is ultimately the GP s decision if this change takes place concludes Pringle To listen to Thomas Pringle s Highland Radio Interview press on the link below Highland Radio Interview on NowDoc Be Sociable Share Previous Story Pringle Takes Part in TD Scientist Pairing Scheme with Prof Andrew Wheeler Next Story Donegal Has Second Highest Number of Farm Assist in the Country Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge

  • Pringle Takes Part in TD/Scientist Pairing Scheme with Prof Andrew Wheeler – Thomas Pringle TD
    Andrew Wheeler and recently met with him in UCC to discuss aspects of his marine research My recent visit to Professor Wheeler was very educational We discussed his research on hydrocarbons oil gas and seabed mapping Then we took a picture by a 900 million year old rock brought down to Cork from Cashelard in Donegal The pairing scheme intends to bring awareness to TDs of the untapped resource science can offer them as part of their roles as representatives The initiative aims to introduce the potential that evidence based research can have on policy making And for the scientist involved the scheme intends to bring awareness of how politics works in Ireland The visit really helped me understand the processes involved in scientific research and how resourceful it can be to politicians There has been little investment in creating ties between the political and science sectors and I think this is reflected in bad policy decisions made in the past when evidence based research was not sought after or understood I think it is important that politicians continue to learn and develop as representatives and so I am glad to take part in this new scheme explains Pringle Professor Wheeler will be visiting me in the Dáil this September to gain some perspective on the workings of Leinster House I hope it will be equally insightful for him as a scientist concludes Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story Positive Meeting Held With Minister Lynch and Cleary Centre Delegates Next Story Pringle Calls on People to Attend NowDoc Protest in Letterkenny Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880 thomas pringle

  • IMF Made €2 Billion Profit from Irish Loan Repayments – Thomas Pringle TD
    tune of 2 billion over a period of 4 years In response to a question tabled by Independent TD Thomas Pringle the Minister confirmed that the IMF had loaned in total 22 5 billion which was provided in a series of twelve different payments Ireland currently has an outstanding loan of approximately 4 3 billion According to the Minister s reply Ireland will have to pay back approximately 3 billion in 2021 1 36 in 2022 with another 450m in 2023 And we will still have to pay interest on these loans in the future How much more is the IMF going to profit from us asks Pringle Ireland s early re payment of just over 18 billion between December 2014 and March 2015 was hailed by Minister Noonan at the time as a strategic move saving the country 1 5 billion in interest rates But looking at these figures today it seems we lose any money saved by the early repayment while the IMF profits at the end of the day says Pringle Just think what 2 billion could do for our public services and the struggle communities have had after numerous budget cuts This is big banks profiting off austerity and I would urge the public to vote for a Government in the next General Election who won t allow this to continue concludes Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story Thomas Speaks on Home Care Motion Next Story Immigration Claims a Play on Numbers Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880 thomas pringle oir ie Latest News Look out for my General Election 2016 newsletter February 11 2016
