  • Raphoe Diocese Audit will re-open wounds for victims – Thomas Pringle TD
    It Updated 1st December 2011 Independent TD Thomas Pringle reacting to the audit report of the Raphoe Diocese has said the publication of the audit of the diocese of Raphoe into the handling of child abuse by the diocese will be a stark reminder of the abuse for the many victims that are still suffering in our communities The view that the systems are now in place to ensure that the diocese reacts appropriately to future allegations will only prove true through the test of time This is another reminder of how the corporate body of the church put the needs of the church ahead of the victims of horrific abuse Apologies will be hollow for the victims that have had their lives ruined and we all need to be confident that this type of cover up will never happen again continued Pringle The church has to make sure that the current code of practice is always followed and has to welcome scrutiny to ensure that it is It is only then that confidence can be rebuilt Unfortunately it is too late for the victims and I would ask anyone that has been affected by this publication to contact the HSE helpline and talk to trained counsellors to help them through this difficult time The helpline number is 1800 303 529 Be Sociable Share Previous Story High Level Report light on detail Pringle Next Story The Closure of Garda Stations in Rural Area s 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 12 59 pm DONEGAL NOW Donegal TD reveals Minister Lynch will not meet with Save Our St Joseph s Campaign February 11

  • High Level Report light on detail- Pringle – Thomas Pringle TD
    over the coming years as grand aid is rolled out and are not on the ground at the moment continued Pringle The report was quietly launched by Minister Coveney in Dublin last Wednesday evening On receiving the report on Thursday I read it with a sense of anticipation but unfortunately it did not last There is scant detail in the report and the actions required are not significant The main recommendation appears to be that a port manager be appointed that would have responsibility to develop the business of the port Given that the report has to be implemented on a cost neutral basis it is hard to see how the manager can be appointed and work independently to ensure that the port develops appropriately stated Pringle The target job numbers for each of the actions do not show where or how they will be created and the lack of detail is disappointing However we all hope in Killybegs that they are achieved and more but it is difficult to see how they will be verifiable jobs Previously when there was talk of efficiencies in the processing sector it has meant job losses for many people in the town said Pringle The bringing together of the stakeholders that were involved in the drawing up of the report is the one real positive that can be taken from it added Pringle I believe this process should be continued By bringing the stakeholders together it should create a greater understanding of each other s role and be able to fast track developments that should help create jobs We need all the stake holders working together and the full implementation of the four reports that have now been drawn up on the future and development potential of the port to create jobs in

  • Minister puts off the moving of BIM into the Department. – Thomas Pringle TD
    off the moving of BIM into the Department Minister puts off the moving of BIM into the Department By admin Tweet Pin It Updated 27th November 2011 Speaking in the Dail on Wednesday the Minister for Agriculture Marine and Food Simon Coveney stated that he has delayed the integration of BIM into his Department while a review of the decision takes place This review is due to be completed in the spring time Speaking afterwards Independent T D Thomas Pringle welcomed the decision I hope this review is not just a delaying tactic and that the review will look objectively at the role that BIM can play I know that BIM has had some critics within the fishing community but I think that the future development of our fishing communities needs an independent development body The seafood sector contributes over 700 million to the economy and this has the potential to grow significantly over the coming years If BIM is swallowed into the behemoth of the Department of Agriculture I would doubt that it could be in any way effective There is so much emphasis on safety at sea and of food that there is plenty scope for their work to continue Be Sociable Share Previous Story Pringle condemns the closure of the Killybegs Library Next Story High Level Report light on detail Pringle 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 12 59 pm DONEGAL NOW Donegal TD reveals Minister Lynch will not meet with Save Our St Joseph s Campaign February 11 2016 11 24 am DONEGAL NOW Calls on Burton to provide additional funding for community services programmes February 11 2016

  • Pringle condemns the closure of the Killybegs Library. – Thomas Pringle TD
    to apply for an exemption except in situations where public safety is threatened The loss of this community facility will affect a great many people particularly when the library has become busier and busier as the recession has bitten deeper said Pringle During the 1980 s libraries were closed in Pettigo and Rathmullan and they have never been restored Now we see that Killybegs and other libraries are closing and if they are lost now they will never be replaced What will be left of our communities and society after another three years of continuous austerity asks Pringle Donegal County Council have to immediately apply to the Department of the Environment for an exemption to reopen Killybegs and keep the other libraries open It should go without question that providing library services is a vital public service from the council said Pringle The people of Donegal deserve the full services of the council and should call on Fine Gael and Labour to stand up for the people and tell Europe and the Troika that they will no longer destroy Irish society to bailout German and French banks concludes Pringle ENDS Be Sociable Share Previous Story Can t Pay Won t Pay Group Next Story Minister puts off the moving of BIM into the Department 2 Comments Charlie Garratt 24th November 2011 at 3 45 pm How can a decision to close a service be based on a member of staff leaving Surely it should be on the basis of need and then resources juggled to ensure that services are maintained where they are required Libraries perform an important function in communities especially in relation to education where children and adults can t afford to be buying books all the time Please keep pressing for the maintenance of this service admin

  • Deputy Thomas Pringle will Protect Children’s Rights in Donegal – Thomas Pringle TD
    that the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child celebrates its 22nd anniversary Deputy Pringle representing Donegal South West says Each and every childhood counts and I m delighted to pledge my support to the Alliance and to their work to secure a referendum to strengthen children s rights in the Constitution We need our Constitution to be the best it can be to reflect our views on childhood today rather than in the time that it was written in 1937 when children were to be seen and not heard We need a Constitution that will protect our children and guide the courts to make decisions that keep families together and that are in the child s best interests I know the people of Donegal would welcome the opportunity to say yes we value childhood and yes Ireland values all children and their rights Senator Jillian van Turnhout outgoing Chief Executive of the Alliance says D eputy Thomas Pringle is a true champion for children in Donegal in the Oireachtas and Ireland itself Over recent years high profile cases of extreme neglect and horrific exploitation of children have brought into sharp focus our need to do something to change how Ireland treats its children This requires our Constitution to be updated because as it stands children are almost invisible within the Constitution and when children find themselves in dangerous or difficult situations the Constitution makes it impossible to give the same level of protection to each child This situation must change and we are grateful for Deputy Pringle s support Further details about the need to hold a referendum on children s rights can be found on the Alliance web site at www childrensrights ie or by downloading this leaflet click here Thomas Pringle T D Be Sociable Share
