1. Let Us Play
The University Challenge Society of the University of Dublin are seeking to convince Granada Studios to allow Trinity College to compete in the television gameshow 'University Challenge'. Trinity competed relatively successfully in this competition until about 30 years ago when interest for it lapsed.
In the last couple of years, interest has emerged once again and contact was made with Granada studios about admitting Trinity. This application was rejected on the basis that we are not a UK university, even though we were founded under Royal Charter and have competed in the past.
This year we want to have another crack at gaining entry and are thus asking for support to launch our "Let Us Play" campaign.
Please sign our petition and help us reach our goal of securing a permanent home for Bray Cancer Support Centre.
We urgently need to secure funding for a new home as we are finding it increasingly difficult to cater for the 5,500 people who use our centre on an annual basis.
WHO ARE WE?
The Bray Cancer Support Centre is a registered charity based in Bray, Co. Wicklow, Ireland (number 12589). We were the first and are now the largest community based cancer support centre in Ireland.
In 2009, the Centre provided over 13,800 free client support services to people throughout the Bray, Wicklow & South Dublin areas, availing of emotional support, practical help, counselling, complimentary therapies as well as other classes. Bereavement counselling and support groups are also an integrated part of our centres services.
We are to the forefront in providing cancer support services and facilities free of charge to people affected by cancer in the greater Bray, Wicklow, South Dublin and Leinster areas.
This Petition Is To Try To Get The Singer Taylor Swift To Come To Ireland, She Has Never Come Here On Tour And We Would Love If She Did.
We are a group of parents who have come together to establish an Educate Together national school in the Tallaght/Citywest area of South-West Dublin, Ireland.
In the majority of state-funded schools in Ireland, the Patron is a religious leader or clergyman. As Patron, Educate Together guarantees equality of access and esteem to children irrespective of their social, cultural or religious backgrounds. The schools are also parent-initiated, usually being established by parents who want this unique ethos available in their locality. As a result, there is a high level of parental participation in the operation of the schools.
We wish to provide an option for our children to receive their primary education in such a school. In our area, we want to have a school that is multi-denominational,
co-educational, child centered and democratically run. A school that adequately reflects the growing multi-denominational nature of the Tallaght/Citywest area.
However, we were recently informed that the Department of Education and Science would not be recognizing a new school in the area in 2009. We feel this is unfair to the large number of parents who have indicated that the Educate Together ethos is their preferred option for their children. If you agree, please sign our petition.
The current conditions in which Hammer and Discus throwers are expected to throw at Santry Stadium Dublin are unsafe for both the throws competitiors and the competitors on the track.
The "new" circle is the result of shody workmanship and it is highly unfair to ask athletes to throw in such dangrous conditions. Athletes have commented that they feel they are "signing a death warrent every time you went into it."
As well as it being unfair to ask athletes to throw from such conditions, it is even more unfair to ask them to throw in a manner that will be safe to track competitors. Throwers have complained about the difficulties in keeping control of the emplements they are throwing due to the conditions and unless this is rectified it WILL lead too an injury, either to a thrower or someone on the track.
The angle at which the cage is now set up also means that, on top of the highly dangrous and unpredictable conditions of the circle, it is highly possible for a 16lb hammer to land on the track. The AAI attempted to rectify this by abruptly changeing the direction of the sector line at 60m. This is something that a wayward hammer will not take into consideration when it is heading towards the track. And the AAI does not want to know what kind of damage a 16lb ball traveling at that speed can do to a track! Unless these conditions are taken into consideration, I can see the closeing of lanes due to damage as well as injury to athletes.
There has been outcry by members of the throwing community since the "new" circle was put down and various demands for the establishment of petitions. As well as being extremly angry at the conditions we are expected to perform in we do not wish to see clamp downs on our events due to somebody on the track being injured.
Irish Throwers have just as much a right to compete in safety as do the other athletes. It is the duty of the AAI to provide safe conditions for the athletes of this country to take part in. The conditions at Santry are safe for neither thrower nor athletes useing the track.
We respectfully ask that the circle be fixed or that the Irish Championships and other events due to be held at Santry be moved to a new location which provides proper and safe conditions for holding a competition.
My brother Niall is 16 years old as a result of an accident 10 years ago he is wheelchair bound. Niall is a character and his biggest love is GAA and his beloved 'Tyrone'. I can safely say the Tyrone Team are Niall's Heroes.
This is my reason for raising this petition, Niall cannot talk, but if you seen his eyes and a facial expressions at match - he is cheering with the rest of us inside. I want to see the facilities in Croke Park improved and in all other stadiums throughout Ireland, so that Niall and all fellow Gaels can continue to enjoy Gaelic Games and to have the proper facilities while doing so.
Croke Park in Dublin has 68,000 seats in its main arena of which there are ONLY 127 disabled seats!
Most of the seats are located at the back of the Cusack stand where viewing is often restricted, toilet facilities are inadequate with one disabled toilet on the Cusack stand for 127 disabled people, there are 2 more disabled toilets on the Canal end of the stadium.
The toilet facilities are highly inadequate, on one recent visit to Croke Park my brother Niall who is disabled had to be taken back to the car (parked almost 1 mile from the stadium) to be changed as he has to be laid on the ground (we bring a blanket) the toilet floor was covered in urine and faeces - Disgusting and Appalling!
The stewards should be trained how to relate to people with disabilities and should be on hand to monitor the toilet facilities.
People with disablities pay the same money as able bodied people and they should recieve the same value for it - the problem we are now highlighting is that 'when you are able bodied you don't realise there is anything wrong!'
This Petition is being brought forward because of Anti-Social Behaviour of some elderly people living in "Old Folks" Flats in our community. Some of us have lived here for over 20 years with no problems. Last year, a new tenant was moved into the "flats" and since then there has been verbal abuse and pictures being taken of children playing outside their homes, threatening gestures with a cane, verbal abuse to anyone with a dog, and property damage to a vehicle.
Another tenant was moved in recently and same anti-social behaviour is taken place, including threatening a dog with an axe in the prescence of children. There is also a "nun" who routinely calls the "guards" (police)if she hears children playing outside.
Now the reason these flats were built within a community is so the elderly can feel like they are in a community with families, and they are not sent to nursing homes to feel instituionalized or forgotten. These people forget that if children are outside playing, then the likelihood of them being robbed (which has happened on more than one occassion when there were no children or a dog outside)is decreased.
It seems that these elderly people who have a problem with children, people and animals should be institutionalized because they are a threat to themselves as well as the community.
I like many others had to travel to Dublin which was our nearest venue to see the great Avril Lavigne in concert. I of course didn't have a problem with this but some people who are as far north as me were quite ruffled. I would be very happy to travel to Dublin again to see Avril in her upcoming tour but I would also love to see Avril play in the Odyssey Arena in Belfast. Avril has a huge fan base in Northern Ireland and also in Dublin and I'm sure Dubliners would also jump at the chance of seeing her twice, this time around. So please weither you're from Ireland Norhtern Ireland, America, england scotland whatever! sign it!!!!
On Sunday the 20th January 2002 the SRC proposed to split the Dublin Football Team into two seperate teams (Northside and Southside). This will only weaken the team and make winning an All Ireland or even a leinster title more remote.
