  • SEAFOOD FUNDING NOT ENOUGH TO SUPPORT THRIVING INDUSTRY – Thomas Pringle TD
    seven years We have been allocated this funding from the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund EMFF to do us until 2020 and we are somehow supposed to be grateful when in reality this amount is not enough to adequately sustain the industry for that amount of time In the last round of funding back in 2007 we were allocated around 70m however while this most recent allocation is obviously an increase it started from a very low base in the first instance and so I don t believe it to be the massive success that the Minister appears to think it is When you look at other countries like Spain that got over 1 100m which in fact represents over 20 of the total allocation it puts our success into perspective As a native of Donegal and a member of the Oireachtas fisheries committee I understand the importance of ensuring a strong fishing industry supporting coastal communities as well as creating jobs in the industry and making financing more accessible But in my mind 148m for seven years won t live up to the task at hand For too long we have been neglected by the Common Fisheries Policy and taken advantage of by other member states While I do welcome that there has been an increase in the funding it will take a lot more to make up for the continuance of our fishermen and the overall industry being left in the wilderness for the last few decades stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story PRINGLE CALLS FOR IFI TO STEP BACK IN PERMIT ISSUE Next Story PRINGLE WELCOMES PRESCRIPTION REFUND FOR LTI MEDICAL CARD HOLDERS About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880 thomas pringle oir ie Latest News

  • PRINGLE CALLS FOR IFI TO STEP BACK IN PERMIT ISSUE – Thomas Pringle TD
    for Inland Fisheries Ireland IFI to take a step back following a heated altercation which took place at Gweebarra River last weekend between IFI officials and local anglers This incident is reflective of the bad feeling over a number of years between the Donegal Game Angling Federation DGAF and the IFI regarding the dispute over 50 per day IFI permits which are the subject of an ongoing dispute in the courts After a morning spent fishing on the Mayo Pool last Sunday members of the Fintown Angling Club and the Rosses Angling Club under the umbrella of the DGAF were confronted by IFI staff and asked to produce the IFI permits The situation then escalated requiring involvement by the Gardaí I would call on the IFI to respectfully back away while the issue of the permits is before the courts This situation escalated when those fishing were asked to produce the permits which are the subject of an ongoing dispute in the courts but as this is an issue before the courts it is the courts that should make the decision and no one else Heavy handed tactics such as those displayed over the weekend will only ensure that someone gets hurt Any intimidation against people going about their daily business is most unwelcome and I am calling for an end to the approach taken by the IFI on this matter stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story PRINGLE CONGRATULATES ELECTION OF CLLR CAMPBELL AS MAYOR Next Story SEAFOOD FUNDING NOT ENOUGH TO SUPPORT THRIVING INDUSTRY 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

  • RAPE CRISIS CENTRES NEED LONG-TERM FUNDING – Thomas Pringle TD
    a contract has been agreed to secure its future to the end of 2014 While I welcome today s announcement between the RCNI and Tusla the Child and Family Agency this will have little impact on the overall funding crisis there and the closures of centres that we have been hearing about recently This contract will ensure that the network will survive until the end of the year only but what is needed is long term funding to give security to the network and allow it to function sufficiently something I raised in the Dáil earlier this year with Minister Fitzgerald By the end of next year this State is required to comply with the EU Victims Directive to provide adequate support services for victims of sexual violence When I asked Minister Fitzgerald about this it seemed she was quite confident Ireland would be fully compliant by then but with funding down and demand up for these services I wouldn t be as confident unless big changes are made Ireland is now recognised at EU level as a unique and lead country in the capacity to collect analyse and present data on Gender Based Violence including sexual violence crimes against children But this work is unsustainable without a dedicated annual funding intervention Again I do welcome that a contract has been agreed to see the RCNI to the end of the year but long term funding is what is ultimately needed for such a vital service and I am calling on the government to provide this stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story DISCRETIONARY MEDICAL CARD FIASCO MUST BE ADDRESSED ADEQUATELY Next Story LETTERMACAWARD POST OFFICE CONTRACT OPEN About admin Contact Info Killybegs Constituency Office Connolly House Bridge Street Killybegs Co Donegal 074 97 41880 thomas pringle oir ie Latest

  • DISCRETIONARY MEDICAL CARD FIASCO MUST BE ADDRESSED ADEQUATELY – Thomas Pringle TD
    that the thousands of people that have already lost their discretionary cards will not have them restored This week in the Dáil I raised the problems with the medical card system the removal of discretionary medical cards and the withdrawal of medical cards from seriously ill children and children with life limiting disabilities Myself and others have been raising these issues in the Dáil continuously in the past year and a half but the government wouldn t listen and look where we are now The government s decision to suspend the review of discretionary medical cards is not going to solve the problem any time soon because those who have already had them taken away and we have all heard these heart breaking stories will not see justice being served for them These people are were granted these cards due to having considerable medical needs and now they re being left in the dark which is very sad indeed The entire assessment process for medical cards needs to be reformed and if this government intends to change the system and make it more responsive I believe it could be done easily When an application is received rather than starting with assessment of means it should be assessed on medical grounds initially to ensure that if somebody has a medical need they do not need to go through a means test and the card can be awarded The problem is that applications are being dealt with in such a way that people are prevented from getting their entitlements If this government is serious about rolling back on the discretionary card fiasco they would not just suspend the review they would reverse it and that s what needs to be done now stated Pringle Be Sociable Share Previous Story BIOMASS PROSPECTS MUST
