The Council can get to work on jobs such as widening doors, fitting wheelchair accessible bathrooms, and installing chairlifts, all small things which can make a huge difference,” said Cllr Leddin.“These essential works make the difference between living at home or becoming a long term patient in hospital. At a time when the housing budget is stretched to capacity, it is especially welcome that this money has been prioritised for this usage,” he added.Cllr Leddin also went on to urge Limerick City and County Council, where possible, to prioritise the services of local tradespeople in carrying out these new adaptions, so that the whole county can benefit from this cash announcement.Limerick Fine Gael TD, Dan Neville, also welcomed the funding.“Where new houses can’t be identified for tenants with disabilities, we must do everything we can to ensure that their houses are easier to live in and that is what this funding is intended to do”, said Deputy Neville.

Limerick invention could help solve global water crisis

first_imgEmail Professor Michael Zaworotko at work in the University of Limerick’s Bernal Institute.Photo: Sean CurtinA new material developed at the University of Limerick could help solve the global water crisis by producing water from air.The material has favourable properties for absorbing and releasing water from the atmosphere with the potential to provide water in drought-hit regions.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Professor Michael Zaworotko, Research Professor at University of Limerick’s Bernal Institute, has developed the crystalline material after decades of research.It has been developed as a commercially viable nanomaterial by Molecule RND, an international incubator fund established at UL to work in collaboration with Prof Zaworotko.Molecule already has orders for the first available commercial units, with a prototype water generator delivering water with low purity without any filtration.Stating that the material could replace the silica traditionally used in dehumidification systems in buildings, Prof Zaworotko said that it would require substantially less energy to maintain air quality in buildings around the world,”The material could also capture water from the atmosphere in arid regions.“Even in zones of very low humidity, there is still some water in the atmosphere. This material could be applied to capture the water from the air, meaning you could potentially grow crops there.“Without water, there is no life. About one-third of the world’s population does not have access to pure water and this technology helps to solve that problem,” he added.

Photo: Cian ReinhardtLIMERICK’S Mayor has given the thumbs up to a proposed €8,000 pay rise for local councillors.Mayor Michael Sheahan (FG) a veteran of local politics, told the Limerick Post he hopes that if the proposal is passed it will encourage more young people and more women to take the political road.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “If there was some sort of attractive remuneration, it might encourage more people to become involved in politics,” he explained.“It might encourage young people and particularly women, who may be put off by the financial implications of taking time out of work at a time in their careers when finances can be tough, to get involved.”The government is shortly to get an independent review of the remuneration offered to local representatives.Currently, councillors are paid a basic salary of around €17,000, with unvouched expenses up to €2,667 and vouched expenses of €5,000.Mayor Sheahan said that while people elected to the council don’t do the job for the money “it would be good if there was a better financial incentive to get a wider representation.“This is a fair proposal and it has been carefully and fully researched by someone with no political axe to grind.“We were lucky to get a good influx of new young councillors but the questions is, will they stay? They bring a fantastic new perspective to the work we do and councillors do work long hard hours.”Councillors who  work in the public service are given paid time off to attend monthly meetings but those working in the private sector have to do so mostly on their own time.center_img Email Facebook Print WhatsApplast_img read more
