Sarkozy knows his Freud well. For, it was that old fakir himself who stated " Only the Irish are immune to psychotherapy" - meaning, the Irish cannot be manipulated by kikes, nor anyone for that matter. Sarkozy had best butt out of Irish politics, he is incapable of understanding the nature of it.

So not only do the EU ignore our democratic wishes, they proceed to view us as 'fools' who 'stuff our faces' and they feel that they can push ahead with their plans by backing us into a corner.

Any attempt to foist a repeat referendum upon us must surely now be opposed by Irish people as a matter of principle. They are an utterly monstrous bunch.

And so it will be. Sarkozy and the rest of the bunch would do well to study the long history of the Irish; they would re-think trying to force Ireland into any such agreement.

Default Weaknesses highlighted in teaching Irish

Tuesday, 15 July 2008 15:26

An examination of the Irish language in primary schools has found significant weaknesses in the way it is taught and learned.

The report, compiled by inspectors from the Department of Education, found the standard of teaching and learning was 'fair to poor' in half of all classes observed.

It observed significant difficulties in 8% of classes.

The inspectors described the findings as disquieting.

The report also says it is worrying that almost a quarter of teachers had weaknesses in their own language competency and 9% had significant deficiencies.

The study also found that formal teaching of listening skills was weak or fair in more than half of classrooms evaluated.

It criticised a lack of variety and purpose in listening activities and says the reading material used presents very little challenge.

The report also highlights the fact that in almost one-third of classrooms, pupils are still being taught Irish through English.

Inspectors based their findings on an evaluation of teaching and learning in 159 classrooms across 40 mainstream schools.

Their report, Irish in the Primary School, is one of two reports into the teaching of the Irish language published today by the Department of Education.

Default Top archaeologists urge protection of iconic Tara

By Paul Melia

Tuesday July 15 2008

THE World Archaeological Congress (WAC) has urged the Government to ensure that no large commercial or residential development is allowed along the route of the controversial M3 motorway.

And the forum, made up of practising archaeologists, has said that excavations carried out along the motorway route in Co Meath -- which runs near the hill of Tara -- were performed to the "highest professional standards".

Last week it was claimed that archaeologists were told to alter their reports to minimise the importance of ancient sites found during excavations, a claim denied by the National Roads Authority (NRA). Yesterday the WAC said it would carry out a report to "sift out" any "misinformation" in relation to the controversial road project.

In a statement issued yesterday, following a week-long gathering at UCD, the organisation said it was opposed to any further development along the stretch of motorway in the Tara/Skryne Valley, and called on the Government to develop protection measures for the site.

"Tara has significance far beyond Ireland itself," President of the WAC, Professor Claire Smith said.

"Its iconic significance derives from its unique cultural character . . . The WAC strongly encourages the Irish Government to instigate formal protection measures for this area and to consider nominating Tara for inscription as a World Heritage Site.

"Prior to the holding of the sixth World Archaeological Congress we sent two senior representatives to look at the issue of the motorway.

"They found that all the archaeological work has been done to the highest professional standards."

A stakeholders' meeting held to discuss the motorway heard "competing and often contradictory claims", and the WAC had decided to commission a report on the Tara discussions so that lessons could be learned.

Default DUP refuses to budge on Irish language Act

GERRY MORIARTY, Northern Editor

THE DUP has again insisted that it will block any attempt by Sinn Féin to introduce an Irish language Act in the Northern Assembly, although it is prepared to countenance a "strategy" for the language.

Senior Sinn Féin and DUP politicians have been meeting in recent weeks to try to reach agreement on a wide range of contentious issues, including an Irish language Act, that have been stalling political movement and slowing down the work of the Executive.

Some progress is reported on the key issue of how and when policing and justice powers would be transferred from British direct-rule ministers to the Northern Executive. One of the main proposals here is that an Alliance minister would have responsibility for justice.

DUP First Minister Peter Robinson and Sinn Féin Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness are also attempting to find some common ground on issues such as a replacement for the 11-plus educational transfer test and the proposed stadium at the old Maze prison site.

But the DUP is refusing to budge on the Irish language Act, which is a key demand of Sinn Féin and in particular of Gerry Adams, a language enthusiast.

The absence of progress also appears to be having an impact on the Northern Executive, which hasn't met since the middle of June, shortly after Mr Robinson replaced the Rev Ian Paisley as First Minister. There is no meeting scheduled for this week, while there is no certainty that a meeting scheduled for next week will take place, according to senior political sources. Ministerial holiday arrangements could result in further cancellations through late July and August.

The British and Irish governments and the parties so far appear satisfied that the absence of agreement and the failure of the Executive to meet is not going to escalate into a new political crisis. The lack of normal collective ministerial responsibility, as expressed through regular cabinet meetings, must be causing concern, however.

Northern Secretary Shaun Woodward has appealed to Sinn Féin and the DUP to resolve their differences over issues such as education, the Maze and policing and justice. He also urged the parties to reduce the tensions over the Irish language.

There has been speculation that if politicians in the North can't resolve the stand-off over the Irish language Act, that the British government would go over the heads of the politicians and introduce the Act at Westminster.

Mr Woodward, however, has said the Irish language issue is a devolved matter and must be resolved by the North's politicians.

A senior DUP source speaking to The Irish Times was adamant that the DUP would never sign up to an Irish language Act. "It's not going to happen," he said. The same source, however, said that there could be movement around the Northern Executive agreeing a "strategy for the Irish language".

Default Pro-immigration Group to lodge a claim against Kevin Myers

The Immigrant Council of Ireland (ICI) is to make an official complaint to the Garda Síochána today about the publication of what it considers to be a racially offensive article that appeared in the Irish Independent last week.

The ICI said it believed the publication of the article, “ Africa is giving nothing to anyone – apart from AIDS ”, which was written by columnist Kevin Myers and published last Thursday, breached Section 2 of the Prohibition of Incitement to Hatred Act 1989.

Section 2 of the Act says it is an offence to publish or distribute written material if it is threatening, abusive or insulting and intended to, or having regarding to all of the circumstances, is likely to, stir up hatred.

In the article, Mr Myers questioned whether it was moral to save an Ethiopian child from starvation, given that it could grow up to face poverty, hunger, violence and possible sexual abuse.

He also described Africa as “almost an entire continent of sexually hyperactive indigents, with tens of millions of people who only survive because of help from the outside world.”

The ICI said it also intends to lodge an official complaint about the article with the National Consultative Committee on Racism and Interculturalism.

“We believe the published article does not just overstep the boundary of common decency – it triple jumps right past that – but it also crosses the legal boundaries,” said the council’s chief executive, Denise Charlton.

Default Conradh na Gaeilge call for a new approach to teach Irish

A NEW approach to teaching Irish in the classroom is needed to raise standards, according to Irish language promotion organisation Conradh na Gaeilge.

The call comes in the wake of a report that shows almost a quarter of primary school pupils are being taught by teachers with a poor command of Irish.

Conradh is seeking a meeting with the Education Minister to discuss the new approach based on an increased emphasis on spoken Irish and the teaching of certain subjects like PE and drama entirely through Irish.

"We strongly feel that children need to be immersed more in the Irish language at the primary school stage," said Daithi MacCarthaigh, president of Conradh na Gaeilge.

"I think the standard of teaching Irish in teacher training colleges also has to be looked at. The fact that such a large number of pupils are being taught Irish through English is worrying," he added.

The Department of Education report states, "almost one-third of classrooms, pupils were taught Irish through the English language. These pupils had few opportunities to experience Irish being spoken as a living language."

Default Gilmore snubs Sarkozy... and Kenny may too

By Mary Regan, Political Reporter

LABOUR leader Eamon Gilmore has turned down an invitation to meet French President Nicolas Sarkozy during his four-hour visit to Dublin on Monday, while Fine Gael’s Enda Kenny is considering a similar snub.

Both were told by the French embassy they would share an hour-long meeting with about 15 organisations.

Mr Gilmore said last night: “It is unclear what, if anything, such a meeting could actually achieve. The time allowed would not permit any real engagement on the issues.

“In all probability such a meeting would become a re-enactment of the Lisbon debate. That debate is over and the referendum has delivered a result. No purpose is served now by a short sound bite-type rerun of the debate. It is clear to me the format proposed is not one that can elicit the diverse views of the Irish public on this complex matter,” he said.

Mr Gilmore received an invitation from the French embassy on Thursday while Fine Gael received its invitation yesterday. But both opposition parties said they had difficulty getting clarity from the embassy about what the meeting will entail.

A Fine Gael spokesman said the party would send a representative but had not decided if that would be party leader Enda Kenny.

He said there was “complete confusion” over the meeting, which is scheduled to clash with a press conference with Mr Sarkozy outside Government Buildings at 3pm.

Mr Gilmore said: “Ireland has a responsibility to contribute to the solution to the present impasse, but this is a European problem as well as an Irish one.

“In this context, and as president of the European Council, Mr Sarkozy is welcome to Ireland and I wish his visit well,” said Mr Gilmore. “The Labour Party is committed to contributing to a full and frank discussion, both here and at European level, as to how this matter can be progressed. Monday’s meeting, as proposed, does not fulfil that objective.”

Ireland need not have it's head turned by the angry fawning attentions of this jew from France. I am thinking to risk a visit back home very soon to help to organise an action against allowing the kike back on Irish Soil. It's bad enough tha we have the jews' representative British government and military occupying Ireland,

He probably thinks that as a member of the 'Chosen race' he is entitled to be Ireland's monarch-cum-ruler as well as France's titular ruler (as well as an asset directly reporting to the Mossad; although he may have ego issues and start a fight with the Israelis behind the scenes as he now perceives himself to be all powerful [the jewish secular 'Messiah' in other words]). Perhaps the one thing I loathe about jews more than any other; with the exception of their not taking any negative responsibility for anything, is the fact that they believe that they are fit to rule over all other beings in the universe.

I hope the Irish re-unite Ireland and/or expel the jew from the Emerald Isle.

Preferably both of course (especially since the British have a great many jews wandering around up in Stormont); but I'd settle for the latter.

Default SF says Sarkozy must engage meaningfully

Saturday July 19 2008

Sinn Fein says the French President is fooling himself if he thinks Irish voters will change their minds about the Lisbon Treaty.

In an interview with today's Irish Times, Nicolas Sarkozy says the purpose of his visit here on Monday is to understand why Ireland rejected Lisbon.

However, Sinn Fein says it will be difficult for him to gain any insight during his short, four-hour trip.

Councillor Padraig MacLochlainn says President Sarkozy must be prepared to engage fully with the Irish people and address their concerns.

Default New referendum 'counter-productive', Sarkozy told

Visiting French president Nicolas Sarkozy has been told by opposition leaders Enda Kenny and Eamon Gilmore that holding a second Lisbon referendum in advance of next summer’s European elections would be counter-productive.

Each of the meetings, both of which took place at Government Buildings in Dublin, lasted 10 or 15 minutes. Speaking to reporters afterwards, Mr Kenny said the discussion was “straightforward”.

“I made the point to him that the question as put and decided upon, that question is over and you don’t put the same question again,” the Fine Gael leader said.

“I did make the point to him that, in a political sense, to have a second referendum, if that were to be a decision of government, sometime before the European elections in 2009, would not lead to a clear mandate because of the political difficulties that that would bring about.”

The Labour Party leader, speaking after his own meeting with the French president said: “We had a very frank exchange of views and some straight talking [was] done.

“I told President Sarkozy that, in my view, this is not just an Irish problem, this is a European problem and that the start to resolving it has to be a start based on a European solution and that, as President of the European Council, he has a particular responsibility in that regard.

“Obviously we in Ireland have to contribute to that solution but it is not as simple as the 26 other member-states ratifying and then turning around to Ireland and asking us to think about it again,” Mr Gilmore added.

“I told him bluntly that a second referendum – which I know is being floated – if it were put this minute would be defeated again and that there isn’t a great deal of point in that.”

For his part, Mr Sarkozy emphasised, according to Mr Gilmore, that there was “a certain time-limit and time-pressure” because certain changes were required for the election of the European Parliament in June 2009.

“I expressed the view to him that I didn’t see how the matter could be resolved between now and then,” Mr Gilmore said, “that there is a process under way where the Government have to assess the totality of the reasons why Ireland vote the way it did.”

President Sarkozy met earlier with Taoiseach Brian Cowen and in a joint statement afterwards they said: “The President emphasised that he had wished his first visit within the union, in his role as President in office of the European Council, to be to Ireland, and the Taoiseach expressed his welcome for such a visit.”

“The two leaders discussed the Lisbon Treaty and the recent Irish referendum. The Taoiseach explained the Irish Government’s aim to develop a fuller understanding of the concerns that affected the outcome of the referendum as a necessary step before deciding how best to respond.

“The Taoiseach also explained that intensive consultations would take place, both domestically and with EU partners, in advance of the October meeting of the European Council,” the statement added.

“The President confirmed that he respected the outcome of the Irish referendum, but welcomed the fact the ratification process is continuing in other member states and expressed his commitment to the Lisbon Treaty. The two leaders undertook to work closely together in seeking a way forward for the union,” the statement said.

There were protests outside Government Buildings by the Irish Farmers’ Association, and by fishermen and and a variety of anti-Lisbon campaigning groups. Two eggs were thrown at the president’s cavalcade and a man was arrested by gardai.”

Default Garda spent €3 million on interpreters last year

10 August 2008 By Susan Mitchell

The Garda Siochána spent almost €3 million on interpreters last year, as the number of immigrants requiring translators continued to grow.

The Garda deals with over 200 languages and dialects on a regular basis. Between 30 and 40 companies provided interpretation services to the Garda last year, a spokesman said.

The Garda recently issued a tender for the contract, which is the biggest public sector interpreting contract in the state.

‘‘We are in the process of awarding tenders at the moment, which are at the valuation stage, and these contracts are expected to be awarded by the end of the year,” said a spokesman.

However, the Irish Translators and Interpreters Association (ITIA) said it was hugely concerned at the quality of the service being provided to major state bodies.

Mary Phelan, secretary of the ITIA, claimed that the quality of interpretation work being carried out for major public sector bodies was often inadequate.

A number of agencies rejected charges regarding the quality of interpreting services provided to the state. They claimed they provided extensive and ongoing training, and regularly monitored satisfaction levels.

‘‘There are no controls in place to ensure a quality service is being delivered. There is an assumption that anyone who is bilingual can interpret. That is not the case, and specialised vocabulary is often needed, particularly in a courtroom setting,” said Phelan.

The contracts to translate for the Health Service Executive (HSE), the Courts Service and the Garda are the biggest public sector translation contracts in the country.

Together, the three bodies had an annual bill of about €5.75 million in 2007.

The HSE spent €750,000 on interpreting in 2007. It has a list of preferred providers that it issues to hospitals and other healthcare facilities.

The Courts Service has a contract with Lionbridge, a multinational company with an office in Dublin. The Courts Service spent more than €2 million on interpreting last year, and expects to spend €2.5 million this year.

Phelan said many translators, some of whom have degrees in translation, were not prepared to work for the low rates in Ireland.

The sector is awaiting the results of a €100,000 study on interpreters for the public service, carried out by consultants Farrell Grant Sparks.

Default 39% of people recieving rent supplement are foreigners

5 August 2008

THE State is spending around €150m a year hosting a "United Nations" of nationalities in rented properties, according to new figures.

People from 161 different countries, ranging from Afghanistan to Zimbabwe, are in receipt of the free rental allowance.

They account for 39pc of the 63,000 people on the means-tested scheme, which costs a total of €390m annually and is generally open only to those who are unemployed.

Although 61pc of people on the scheme are Irish, the numbers of immigrants on rent allowance has been increasing steadily.

There are more than 3,000 from Nigeria, 3,000 from the UK, 1,950 from Poland and 1,130 from Romania. Small countries like the Bahamas, Chile, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, Grenada and Honduras have just one citizen each on the scheme.

Those also claiming rent supplement include 15 people from Cuba, 22 from Burma, 27 from Chechnya, 29 from Uzbekistan, 49 from Eritrea, 130 from Zimbabwe and 132 from Estonia.

Default Bebo kills off racist Irish quiz

The Irish arm of social networking site Bebo, has been accused of racism and 'glorifying terrorism.'

Calls for a controversial quiz to be removed from the site came this week when Northern Ireland's Culture Minister described its content as "offensive."

Constructed by one of the sites users, the quiz was aimed at determining users' levels of Irish nationalism.

Bebo has since removed the 'How Irish Are You?' questionnaire which had been taken by over 50,000 users since it was originally posted on the networking site.

Default ‘TaraWatch to Oppose Ministers Plan For UNESCO Inscription of Hill of Tara Landscape’



TaraWatch has decided to oppose Minister for the Environment, John Gormley’s plan to make Tara a UNESCO World Heritage Site, after attending the UNESCO World Heritage Convention in Quebec, and consulting with legal and heritage experts. Minister Gormley announced in April 2008 that he has retained a member of the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), the official Advisory Body to UNESCO, to assist with the UNESCO nomination.
The reasons for opposing the plan are as follows:

1. Although the Hill of Tara cultural and natural landscape is undoubtedly a site of ‘outstanding universal value’, worthy of inscription, the M3 motorway will drastically diminish the integrity and value of the site.

2. Ireland has been in breach of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, since it signed the Convention in 1992, by failing to nominate Tara before now. A UN report have shows Ireland failed to use its national inventory to nominate sites.

3. UNESCO may require that the M3 is moved, once Tara is inscribed, like they did at Stonehenge, where the British Government is now facing a billion Pound bill to alter the adjacent roads.

TaraWatch will oppose the Ministers plan, in the following ways:

1. Lobby UNESCO and ICOMOS to intervene in the situation now, and require a re-routing of the M3 before inscribing the site. Otherwise it is likely the will inscribe the site, and then require the M3 to be moved, like they did at Stonehenge.

2. Rally international support, from organisations such as the World Monuments Fund, the World Archaeological Congress, the European Association of Archaeologists, and the Archaeological Institute of America, who have already issued statements on the current plan.

3. Take further legal advice, in relation to the matter, with a view to obtaining a declaration that the Ministers actions are in breach of Irish and international law.

4. Commission consultants reports to prove that the M3, combined with UNESCO inscription, would have a severely detrimental effect on the site, due to associated commercial development.

5. Hold public events in Ireland. Plans will be discussed in detail at a TaraWatch public meeting, to mark the beginning of Heritage Week, to be held at the United Arts Club, 3 Upper Fitzwilliam Street, Dublin 2, beginning at 6:00pm on Monday 25 August. A discussion will be followed by music and poetry by musician and RTE radio personality, Melanie O’Reilly and friends.

Vincent Salafia of TaraWatch said:

“Gormley’s plan is likely to cost the taxpayer another half a billion Euro, because once UNESCO inscribes the site it is very likely they will then require the M3 to moved, like they did at Stonehenge.

“He is walking the taxpayers into a money pit.

“We are going to take every possible action, with international support, to oppose the Ministers plan.

“UNESCO have stated that they cannot act until Minister Gormley makes an official nomination, and he is clearly waiting until the M3 is a fait accompli.

NOTE TO EDITORS

Heritage Week will take place in Ireland, 24-31 August. A number of events will take place on the Hill of Tara. Heritage Week is part of European Heritage Days ”Once a year, citizens in 49 countries celebrate Europe’s cultural heritage. This initiative of the European Heritage Days, launched by the Council of Europe in 1991, has been since 1999 a joint action of the Council of Europe and the European Commission.”

Default Racial discrimination up 100%

The number of cases of racial discrimination in the workplace referred to the Equality Tribunal reached 307 last year, an increase of over 100% on the previous year.

The tribunal's annual report published today also shows a 65% increase in the number of cases of discrimination against those with a disability in accessing services compared to 2006.

Default We need tougher immigration law

By Glanmire, Co Cork
Saturday August 16 2008


I completely agree with Kevin Myers (Irish Independent, August 15) when he writes about the number of foreign nationals who are claiming state benefits for housing.

For far too long, people have tiptoed around this issue in case they offend someone or are accused of being racist.

Every EU national is entitled to state housing or state benefits, just as as an Irish person would be if they were in another EU country; but what really astounds me is the number of Nigerians who are claiming benefit and the amount of them who do not contribute to our economy like our other nations.

If you were afraid for your life and for your family, why in God's name would you fly over 15 countries to seek sanctuary in Ireland? Under the Geneva Convention you are supposed to go to the nearest, safe country.

We cannot allow ourselves to continue to be seen as a soft touch and we must get tougher with our immigration laws.

DARREN SCULLY
