Print Condell Road housing development, Pat O’Neill pictured at the proposed site by Limerick City and County Council for 43 Housing Units. Picture: Keith WisemanA standalone housing scheme on the outskirts of Limerick city with “no proper infrastructure and no facilities” will not work.That’s according to community activist Pat O’Neill who says there has been a huge outcry over the proposed housing scheme development on the Condell Road with 50 objections lodged, including one from Clonmacken Residents Association.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Pat, who represents the residents’ group, has coordinated meetings between residents and councillors following local concern over the proposed development.One of the main objections from the people of the Northside to this 43-unit social housing scheme, he explained, is the location of the development.He claims there are no facilities convenient to the proposed site and that it is “isolated and situated on a flood plain with no metropolitan bus stop nearby and no provision for one either as part of the proposal”.“We rallied together to challenge this knee-jerk idea of the council officials. If history tells us anything is that a sole housing scheme with no proper infrastructure and no facilities will not work.“Everything is wrong with this proposed development. We want to learn from the mistakes of the past. We welcome a new housing scheme for the area but not as a knee-jerk reaction to the current housing crisis. Let’s do it right and proper so that everyone stands to benefit,” he declared.A spokesman for Limerick City and County Council said it was incorrect to say that the houses would be built in a flood zone as the planned location was not subject to flooding.The site of the proposed development is located approximately 800 metres, around a ten-minute walk to the Jetland retail hub area, which is serviced by public transport.“The Council believes it is important to ensure that the future residents of this development have adequate social and community infrastructure within a reasonable walking distance of their homes.“The general area is a location of planned future development with an existing permission on adjoining lands for around 400 new housing units to be developed by commercial entities. New bus routes tend to follow demand, and as the population in this area increases, public transport links to the city may be developed by Bus Eireann,” the spokesman added.

Comments are closed. GuruOn 1 Jul 2003 in Personnel Today This week’s guruGuru: the thinking-man’s GuevaraDisciples, admirers and fully paid-up members of the Guru fan club couldnever accuse their hero of arrogance. Even Guru himself once believed he was wrong, but soon found he wasmistaken. With these humble inclinations, Guru was shocked to hear that al-SaadiGaddafi, son of the Libyan dictator, has started trials with Italian Serie Afootball club Perugia. Previously, Gaddafi was captain and striker of Tripoli football clubal-Ittihad, and the evidence seems to point to a talented and successfulfootballer. However, the truth is a little different. Apparently, 30-year-old Gaddafi had a habit of awarding his team with medalsand trophies regardless of whether they had played any games, let alone won anytournaments. As chairman of the Libyan Football Association, he sacked the Libyan coachwho dropped him from the national team, despite the team seeing a dramatic risein fortune after he was sidelined. His strike rate is attributed to opposition players running away rather thantackling their president’s son. To Guru, this has strange echoes of Ugandan dictator and all-round nutcase,Idi Amin, who among other things called himself ‘Conqueror of the BritishEmpire in Africa’, ‘King of Scotland’ and ‘Lord of All the Beasts on the Land,and Fish in the Sea’. Such flagrant exploitation of position must be stopped. Guru wants to hearabout your colleagues and superiors and their abuses of power. All replies willbe kept anonymous. Guru: one man’s terrorist; another man’s freedom fighter A fate far worse than European… To join Europe, or not to join Europe; that is the question. Or so youthought. The issue has been settled. Guru has found that the British worker isquickly becoming… (clap of thunder)… a European. Surely not, you cry. Well let’s look at the evidence. A survey by the CIPDhas found a third of British companies have sacked staff for misusing e-mail.The chief abuse: sending porn. That will be the Dutch influence then. Furthermore, research has established that 63 per cent of staff pulling asickie admit hang-overs are the main reason for absence. Here, it is clear theGermans are asserting their culture on us, as their workers are the laziest inEurope and take an average of 43 days holiday a year. What about new findings that say 60-90 minute ‘power-naps’ couldconsiderably enhance your performance? As soon as the Spanish get to work, they take time out for a snooze in orderto prepare for the arduous siestas ahead. So, viva Britannia! Finally, somehow scientists have discovered that moaning staff may besuffering from post-traumatic embitterment disorder (PTED). This illness makes staff feel helpless and aggressive and affects dailyperformance. Could this be due to pressure from Italy, allegedly the unhappiestnation on Earth? Then again, perhaps not. Judging by the amount of whingers around, PTED (or‘dramatic inability to accept our own shortcomings and responsibilities’),could have much more sinister ramifications. We might not be turning into Europeans after all; we could be changing into…(more claps of thunder followed by lightening, plagues, and flooding ofbiblical proportions)É Americans. Telly icon goes West …and as if that wasn’t bad enough, another cultural icon has gone Stateside.Bob the Builder has left for the lucrative industry across the pond underthe guise of ‘Bob the Construction Worker’. Guru feels something has been lost in the translation and wonders whetherthe job description has changed. Moreover, are Bob’s vehicles going to have tochange to left-hand drive? He has clearly taken on a voice coach too, as he will soon sound far morelike Harrison Ford than Neil Morissey. Robert (as he’s known to his mother) seems to be going the same way as suchclassics as the Lion, the Witch and the Closet, and Dickens’Cross-Denominational Inclusive Wintertime Carol.

The Floyd Mayweather Jr. versus Conor McGregor fight on Saturday may not have lived up to the hype as the greatest fight in combat sports history, but it provided four valuable marketing lessons. Focus on the end game.Professional sports entertains an audience, showcases the amazing potential of the human body, motivates us slobs to get up off the sofa and move, and provides lessons about how to behave in victory and defeat. But the reality is that all professional sporting events have only one purpose: to generate a profit. In boxing, that end game is especially clear, because there aren’t any seasons or regularly scheduled events. Boxing matches are entirely driven by demand, which is driven by profit. While this fight didn’t live up to its competitive hype, it absolutely embodied its other nickname: The Money Fight. Mayweather-McGregor broke records for live gate revenues, pay-per-view and live streaming, and could reach a whopping $1 billion in total revenue after all the income streams are tallied, including those 50-0 hats that went on sale as soon as the final bell rung. Yes, the fight was well publicized, but what made the card a revenue winner was that the fighters are currently the two most popular in the world, generate the most revenue and have already gone down in history as some of the best ever in their respective arenas. And, the promoters took advantage of UFC’s livestreaming, expanding the fight beyond cable pay-per-view to more than 200 countries around the world. Make it intriguing.Mayweather-McGregor wasn’t just about two great fighters facing off. That was the story two years ago, when Mayweather fought Manny Pacquiao, a match so hyped it seemed impossible to top. But this fight eclipsed the last thanks to the extra story of boxing vs. UFC, pitting fans of different sports against each other to settle a long running debate. Instead of one fighter versus another, this match posed questions like, “do boxers really punch harder than UFC fighters?” “Could the best UFC fighter in history beat the greatest boxer of his generation with only his fists?” And, at age 40, Mayweather also faced the question, “is he too old?” After all, Mayweather had retired from the sport after the Pacquiao fight, and he had come back from retirement in 2007 to fight Pacquiao. Of course, he’s announced his retirement again, but since he still holds the title belt, there’s always a chance he could fight another day. Especially if he’s guaranteed another $100 million minimum payout. Who among us wouldn’t take a punch in the face for $100 million? Expand your market.UFC popularity has exploded over the last 20 years; at the same time, interest in boxing has waned. And, surveys show a racial divide, too. UFC is most popular with white Americans, while boxing is most popular among African Americans and Hispanics. Mayweather-McGregor exposed both audiences to each respective sport in one of the greatest cross marketing promotions of all time. The hype leading up to the fight featured video clips of each fighter’s greatest moments, which was free advertising for each sport. Put on a good show.In retrospect, McGregor didn’t have a chance, and it’s no wonder. Boxing and mixed martial arts are different disciplines, and asking McGregor to fight using only one of his weapons is like asking someone to fight with one hand tied behind their back. Most people would argue that Mayweather purposely got off to a slow start to make sure fans got their money’s worth. Had he come out strong and knocked McGregor out in 38 seconds like Mike Tyson, it would have turned off UFC fans and eliminated the only logical conclusion: a profitable rematch. 107SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Heather Anderson Heather Anderson is co-founder of OmniChannel Communications, a marketing company that serves fintech and asset/liability management firms.
