Following an application for disclosure made before the three judge non jury court, the trial of Thomas McMahon, 32, with an address at Ros Fearna, Murroe and Noel Noonan, 35, of North Claughaun Road, Garryowen was halted as evidence was due outlining that both are alleged members of the IRA, On February 7, 2013, both men were arrested in County Tipperary during an operation where Gardai were investigating dissident republicans.The legal teams for both accused men asked the court for disclosure from An Garda Siochana as to whether or not conversations their clients had with lawyers were recorded. Defence counsels, Isobel Kennedy SC and Anthony Sammon SC, outlined that the accused men had phone conversations with solicitors before garda interviews.

Discussing these small and achievable behavioural changes with our own kids can go a long way towards instilling a sense of personal interest and responsibility for the planet.”“To tackle climate change, we need drastic action globally from every single pocket of society including governments, businesses, communities and schools. This includes educating kids across all age groups and levels of schooling to prepare them to be able to live more sustainable lives.” Fiona O’Malley, Director of Communications at World Vision Ireland, said.“Education can play a key role in innovation and investments in environmentally-sound technologies and infrastructure, sustainable livelihoods and lifestyle choices. Schools play a pivotal role in teaching students how to be environmentally responsible. “Today’s children are tomorrow’s business leaders, decision makers and politicians. They will be the ones shaping the future of the country, our economy, and our transport; so it’s important that they are equipped with the knowledge of the impact of global warming, and how to tackle it. We can only ever be the holders of today.“Our children are the finders of tomorrow and it’s our job to shape and mould them to make sure that is a better tomorrow. We believe this essay competition is a great way to start the climate change conversations in schools across the country, in a positive and creative way.“It is important for the youth to understand the astronomical damage global warming is doing to our planet, and the positive actions we need to take at a rapid rate, like planting million and millions of trees. It can be a heavy subject for children to take on but there can be positive feelings when they take active steps to be part of the solution, like tree-planting.“If parents and teachers are lucky enough to be able to travel, consider taking the children to see places and things that you can turn into a climate discussion. Few things can teach or explain the magnitude and power of the ocean better than seeing it – and with the waters lapping against the shore, a quick discussion of sea-level rise may feel more concrete and more real.“It’s important to balance the negative issues we face with positive actions that children can take. Children today will have to deal with the impacts of climate change – more than any previous generation. As a parent, guardian, teacher, or caregiver, we all have a responsibility to do our best to make sure they’re ready.”For further information on how to enter the climate change essay competition go to – WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick PostRyan Tubridyworld vision Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Print WhatsApp Previous articleStone Roses frontman Ian Brown to play Live at Big Top in LimerickNext articleWater levels continue to rise on River Shannon Meghann Scully Facebooklast_img read more
