But it is not a fair recovery. It’s a two-tier recovery that benefits the wealthy elite, not the majority of hard working families struggling to survive,” the West Limerick politician claimed.He said he believes that a fair recovery is possible and that cronyism and greed can be replaced with fairness and hope.“The type of country I want is based on the right to decent work with decent pay, access to first class public services, affordable childcare, abolition of water charges, a fair tax system and advancing the all Ireland economy for all our benefit.“Sinn Féin has a vision for rural Ireland. It is a vision to make it a sustainable place to live and work. A place where the quality of life is matched by the quality of public services, a place where young educated graduates have the opportunity to stay and build their future and a place that welcomes back emigrants forced to leave over recent years.” Advertisement Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live
BUENOS AIRES plans to call bids later this year for a 9 km addition to the Subte metro. Expected to cost US$360 to US$450m, Line H would improve connections between the predominantly east-west routes, running under Avenida Jujuy and Avenida Pueyrredón before heading up Avenida Córdoba to the Cid Campeador monument. French consultancy Systra has been hired to undertake feasibility studies.Subte concessionaire Metrovías had earlier suggested a 10 km expansion package. This comprised extension of Line A from Primera Junta to Flores for US$100m and a new north-south Line F costing around US$500m. A combination of state, city and Metrovías funding was envisaged by Managing Director Roberto Macías.The city is currently funding extension of Line D from Carranza to Monroe, with stations at Virrey del Pinos and Juramento due to be finished in 1997 and 1998 respectively. Negotiations have begun for a further extension across the city limits to Vicente López, where the local authority plans to invest US$25m in a bus-metro interchange. At the end of last year, Metrovías was finalising a US$200m finance package for 80 new metro cars for use on Line A. The Argentinian government has agreed to invest US$100m from a World Bank loan on infrastructure modernisation for the line. The remainder will go on construction of 20 bus-rail interchanges and elimination of 20 level crossings on suburban lines; the rail concessionaires are to remove another 30 crossings at their own expense. o
Cork put in a much better display in the second-half and goals from Katrina Mackey and Niamh McCarthy helped them to a five-point victory.Tipperary’s next match is away to Wexford on Sunday week, March 12th. Brian Boyle’s side went down 2-14 to 1-12 in a match played at Carrignore WIT.The Premier led 1-9 to 0-7 at the break, thanks, in part, to Megan Ryan’s 12th minute.Tipp could have been further ahead if Róisín Howard’s effort shortly after the green flag was raised for the first time during the game had gone under rather than just over the crossbar.
