Something brown and smelly is coming from the kitchen tap

He turned on his tap around midday and was overwhelmed by the “rancid” stink and pigmentation of the water.“This is not a joke. It happened last Thursday as well and about two months before that too. It is happening far too often. Something needs to be done about it.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “You should see the water in my tank in the attic. It is like brown shite. I also took a picture of a glass of water as it was coming out of the tap and it was filled with sediment. The stink off it was unbearable. It is just sickening. I certainly wouldn’t drink the water coming out of the taps.“I let the tap run for about ten minutes and the yellow colour eventually ran out of the water. I had clothes in the washing machine at the time and they were destroyed. The smell was disgusting. I had to put more washing powder in the machine and wash them all over again.Mr Mulcahy, who is opposed to water charges, said he didn’t call Irish Water to register his complaint as he feared this would be misconstrued as him signing up for the utility’s services.“I definitely have no intention of paying water charges. I am totally against them. The water up here is undrinkable and people are sick of the shite that is coming through the taps. It has to be a serious health hazard,”  he suggests.Anti Austerity Alliance councillor Cian Prendiville is now urging anyone having difficulties with Irish Water, but who do not want to contact them directly, to get in touch with him.“I have contacted Irish Water and it seems that repairs were being carried out on the network in Kennedy Park that resulted in the water being contaminated. However, if water works leave the water undrinkable, the residents should at least be warned about this. It is not good enough for people to turn on their taps and find undrinkable, contaminated water,” he said.A statement from Irish Water said that they try to resolve all customer issues in a timely and efficient manner.“However, if we are not made aware of issues it makes investigating them difficult. Customers with any issues in relation to their water supply should contact our contact centre on 1890 278 278.“We are undertaking a national investment programme to address the acknowledged deficiencies in the country’s water infrastructure. €340 million was invested in improving water and wastewater services in 2014 and over €363 million during 2015,” the statement concluded.

A regional meeting of the leading partners of the international development program Via Dinarica was held

first_imgA regional meeting of leading partners of the international development program Via Dinarica was held on 19 and 20 May 2018 in the newly renovated visitor center Laškovica in the Krka National Park, which was dedicated to stakeholders from Šibenik-Knin and Zadar counties on the second day.The two-day event and the occasional exhibition on Via Dinarica were organized by the Via Dinarica Croatia Association in cooperation with the Krka National Park Public Institution, with the support of the Ministry of Tourism. The meeting was attended by representatives of the Regional Development Agency Zeleni kras from Slovenia, the United Nations Development Program and the Terra Dinarica Association from Bosnia and Herzegovina and representatives of Šibenik-Knin County, Public Institution “Krka National Park”, Public Institution “Paklenica National Park”, Public Institutions Priroda of Šibenik-Knin County, Zadar Mountain Guide Station, PD Belveder, HPK Sveti Mihovil and HGSS Šibenik Station.The two-day regional workshop on the strategic development of mountain tourism aimed to connect, exchange information and involve local development stakeholders as well as strengthen regional cooperation, for which purpose a regional coordination body of the Via Dinarica program was established, involving Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina. As part of the event, an exhibition on Via Dinarica in Croatia was organized.Via Dinarica program UNDP – United Nations Development Program has started in Croatia, and the activities of the project team continue through the Association Via Dinarica Croatia, specializing in the sustainable development of mountain and rural tourism and social partnership in the Dinarides. The program is implemented with the support of the Ministry of Tourism of the Republic of Croatia and is the leading project for the development of mountain tourism in Croatia. In cooperation with the Croatian Tourist Board and county and local tourist boards, the Croatian Mountaineering Association, the Croatian Mountain Rescue Service, mountaineering guide stations, the Croatian Chamber of Commerce and public institutions for the management of protected areas, numerous partners – entrepreneurs in the Dinarides.Via Dinarica mountain trailVia Dinarica is a longitudinal route for hikers, cyclists and other lovers of active holidays. It stretches from Slovenia to Albania, with about 40% of the road leading through Croatia. In Croatia, Via Dinarica has a total of 57 stages, and includes six national parks, four nature parks, two strict reserves and numerous attractive Croatian landscapes. Respectable tourist magazine “Outdoor” declared Via Dinarica the best new hiking trail in the world, “Active Traveler”, “National Geographic” and “Geo” ranked it among the 10 most beautiful trails in the world, and the trail is one of the best new destinations in presented to the world on numerous tourist portals. One of the basic goals of Via Dinarica is to promote the local economy and thus bring tourists closer to local food, accommodation and various services. To this end, last year Via Dinarica was presented with an exhibition and conference at the European Parliament in Brussels, and the mountain beauties of Croatia were also presented at Via Dinarica at several prestigious tourism fairs abroad. Regional partners are focused on the implementation of targeted development projects since in addition to all existing attractions and infrastructure, on the Via Dinarica there are many investment needs to ensure everything needed for quality visits, as well as the development of mountainous and rural areas.Several dozen mountaineers from developed European countries and from the USA and Canada have already passed the Via Dinarica along its entire length, and these days Croatian mountaineers Kristijan Karlušić and Ante Rosić are crossing the white line of the Via Dinarica. Krka National Park is located on the blue and white lines of Via Dinarica, providing a unique link between the coast and the mountainous hinterland. Via Dinarica is especially important for the development of tourist potentials of the Krka National Park and the wider Šibenik-Knin County precisely because the Krka River springs just below the highest Croatian mountain Dinara (1831 m), which gave its name to the entire Dinaric Mountains and Via Dinarica program.Related news:NEW VISITORS CENTER OPENED IN LAŠKOVICA, NEW STARTING POINT FOR ACTIVE VISITING TO KRKA NPNATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELER NAMED VIA DINARICA THE BEST DESTINATION IN THE WORLD FOR 2017last_img read more

Klopp: Sterling abusers must be punished but racists don’t deserve to be discussed

first_imgHe was strong enough to walk away from the incident without reacting, but the issue of racism in sport and across British society has risen to the fore once more.Klopp is pleased to see offenders being singled out and punished and has hailed Sterling’s handling of a situation that has thrust him back under a media spotlight.The German coach told reporters: “I watched the game and I think I saw the situation where he went for the corner and a few guys where shouting.“I didn’t hear, I don’t know if it was possible to, but I thought his reaction was just brilliant. You saw his face. He gave the right response not to react to these people.“They don’t deserve any reaction, they don’t deserve any respect. I am obviously not surprised that these things still happen and they will not stop only because we talk about them, but I like the fact that we put the finger on it and say ‘you cannot say what you want’.“We had similar situations in Germany and other countries, Italy with [Kevin Prince] Boateng when he stopped the game because of the things people shouted from the stands.“There need to be punishments for things like this. As long as people are silly enough to do this, they need to be punished for it, that’s how it is.“What I like is, I am sure 95 per cent of people are not like this so we should try to find the right amount of attention for them. Punish them but do not talk too much about them because they do not deserve that we talk about them.”Sterling has received widespread support on the back of the abuse he received in west London, both for his reaction at the time and for his willingness to raise awareness of the issues he has to put up with. He posted on social media in the aftermath of the incident, while referencing the coverage City team-mates Tosin Adarabioyo and Phil Foden have received for recent property purchases – with the former having it pointed out that he has “never started a Premier League match” while latter is described as having “set up a future” when buying a house for his mother.“You have two young players starting out their careers – both play for the same team, both have done the right thing, which is buy a new house for their mothers who have put in a lot of time and love into helping them get where they are. Jurgen Klopp has offered his support to the cause of former Liverpool star Raheem Sterling, with the Manchester City winger having been subjected to alleged racist abuse during a clash with Chelsea.The England international found himself targeted by a group of Blues supporters during a Premier League fixture at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. Getty/Goal composite “But look at how the newspapers get their message across for the young black player and then for the young white player.“I think this is unacceptable, both innocent, have not done a thing wrong but just by the way it has been worded, this young black kid is looked at in a bad light, which helps fuel racism and aggressive behaviour.”Leading figures from across the sporting world, both inside the Kick It Out campaign and from further afield, have aired their support for Sterling and condemned those who continue to make racism a subject of social debate in the 21st century.last_img read more
