€13.11 Million approved for Dublin Street Regeneration Project

Minister for Housing, Local Government and Heritage Mr Darragh O’Brien this morning (8th March) announced that €13.11 million has been awarded to the Dublin Street Regeneration project under the Urban Regeneration Development Fund (URDF).

Warmly welcoming the Government’s funding announcement of €13.11 million for the Dublin Street Regeneration Project in Monaghan town, Chief Executive of Monaghan County Council, Mr Eamonn O’Sullivan said “This project will revitalise Monaghan Town, in regenerating this area we will bring renewed energy into the town and will make it a great place to live, work and visit.”


The Dublin Street Regeneration project aims to regenerate a large brownfield site in the core of Monaghan Town. The proposal includes the creation of new linkages between land-locked brownfield lands and the existing town street network, and the creation of new public spaces. The project will deliver the infrastructure works and development of suitable, serviced and accessible development lands, creating the physical environment for the development of new buildings for mixed-use purposes.

The proposal involves two sub-projects:

  • Dublin Street South – creation of new, high quality linkages between the core retail area of the town, the new shopping centre and existing civic uses.
  • Dublin Street North – development of a Masterplan for the area, to include the provision of three new development block areas and areas of opportunity for reuse/adaptation and infill development in the town. The Masterplan will define a new urban quarter.

The proposal has the potential to be a transformative place-making intervention in the core of the town.

The €13.11 million in approved funding is in addition to €1.29 million in approved URDF funding for the Dublin Street Regeneration project (a ‘Call 1’ project).  Total URDF funding approved to date: €14.40 million

Message from HSE: COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

Public Health Measures

Ireland is at level 5 restrictions.

You can see the measures in place here.


COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

The vaccination programme continues to be rolled out nationwide, and more than 446,474 vaccines have been administered as of the 1st March 2021. As we move into next week, vaccination of Group 3 continues, with people aged 80 and over being invited for their vaccines by GPs. When this group is complete, we’ll move on to the next age-group, those aged 75 and over, then 70 and over. We expect to have this group vaccinated, with both doses, by the middle of May.


The HSE is also starting to make arrangements to vaccinate people with certain health conditions that put them at very high risk if they get COVID-19. This is being organised initially through hospital teams who are caring for people in this new Group 4, and will start with some patients from the week of March 8th also. It will take a little extra time to identify and invite all of the people in these groups, but we will move forward as quickly as possible.


Who is included in this group?

You can see a detailed list of who is included in this group here on the website.


What do I need to do?

As with Group 3, people do not need to register in advance or take any action at this time. Your hospital or healthcare team will contact you when it’s your turn to be vaccinated.


Which vaccine will be given?

This new Group 4 will be offered the AstraZeneca vaccine. The National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) advised any of the approved vaccines are suitable for use for patients in this group and that the priority was to offer an effective vaccine as quickly as possible.


The immune system of some of the people in Group 4, for example people with cancer or kidney failure, may not always work as well as most other people’s immune system. For this reason, NIAC advised that there might be a stronger immune response in those people if they got the mRNA vaccine. NIAC also said that if those patients would have to wait 3 weeks or more to get the mRNA vaccine, it was better to give them an available vaccine now. This is because all of the vaccines are showing huge benefit in preventing severe disease so the sooner people are vaccinated, the better.


The available deliveries of mRNA vaccine for the next few weeks are committed to the group of people aged 70 years and older (Group 3). It would take weeks before there was mRNA vaccine available for patients in Group 4. The AstraZeneca vaccine is available from next week. Given the risk of catching COVID-19 while waiting for the mRNA vaccine we consider that it is far safer give people in Group 4 the AstraZeneca vaccine as soon as possible rather than wait to offer them an mRNA vaccine later. This also fits with the advice from NIAC to avoid a long delay.


How effective is this vaccine?

The AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines all provide a very high level of excellent protection against severe disease and hospitalisation. The initial research study of the AstraZeneca vaccine initially showed infection protection of about 60%, but most recent studies showed protection above 80% with two doses.


What should I do now?

Your hospital or healthcare team will get in touch with you over the coming weeks when it’s your turn to have the vaccine.


You can find the patient information leaflet from AstraZeneca here on the HSE website, and this is also being produced in a range of languages, and in Easy-Read format.


Where to find COVID-19 Vaccination Information

We encourage everyone to read about the COVID-19 vaccine and to get their information from a factual, trusted source – here are the links to the pages with information on the vaccine:

New Infection Prevention and Control and Antimicrobial Stewardship (IPC and AMS) eLearning Foundation Programme

There is now a new HSE funded infection prevention and control and antimicrobial stewardship (IPC and AMS) eLearning foundation programme available at no charge, and each of the learning modules is accredited with continuing education points from the RCPI.


The programme has been developed by the HSE’s national Antimicrobial Resistance and Infection Control Team (AMRIC), and is accessible free of charge to staff, individuals and non HSE organisations who provide health and social care services.


The programme has been designed to support all health and social care staff to protect themselves, the people they care for and their colleagues from the spread of infection by promoting best practice with respect to Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) and Antimicrobial Prescribing, Management and Stewardship in line with the 2020 HSE Interim Guidance on Infection Prevention and Control.


The programme contains an introductory overview of Infection Prevention and Control followed by 7 key topics (each module takes between 20 – 40 minutes) in line with the Interim Guidance:


-Basics of Infection Prevention and Control

-Standard and Transmission-based Precautions

-Hand Hygiene

-Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

-Respiratory and Cough Etiquette

-Aseptic Technique

-Antimicrobial Stewardship


How to access the course

You can access the course here on HSeLand then by following the AMRIC Resist logo on the HSeLanD homepage, by searching for ‘IPC’ in the search box or by visiting the Clinical Courses catalogue.  You will then be asked to register or sign in.


The courses can be used by any organisation and are accredited; they are a useful training tool and can be accessed at any time. Online training is an important part of supporting staff during the COVID-19 pandemic as face to face training is not required to complete the courses.


Learners are awarded 1 CEU from NMBI and 2 CPD credits from RCPI for each completed module in the AMRIC programme. Staff can dip in and out of the courses at any time.


If you have any queries in relation to the course you can contact the AMRIC team

“TikTok Mic Drop” Road Safety competition: Create a Road Safety song to be in with a chance of winning €1,000!

Create a road safety song to be in with a chance of winning €1,000!


Monaghan County Council together with ten other County Councils across the North East, Midlands and North West of the country have joined forces with iRadio to launch their “TikTok Mic Drop” Road Safety competition with a total prize fund of over €5,000!


The competition is asking participants to create their own song or rap based on sharing the road safely.  Entrants should focus their message on the importance of sharing the road with other road users, be they cyclists, drivers, motorcyclists or pedestrians.


Adrian O’Sullivan, Road Safety Officer with Monaghan County Council, wants to see as many entries as possible from the county. “Despite there being less traffic on the road last year, unfortunately there was a rise in the number of pedestrians killed on Irish roads, up 19% since 2019. The number of cyclist and motorcyclist fatalities, also increased by 25% and 6% respectively. This campaign wants to change this trend.”


There are four individual prizes the best entries and two prizes for the best entries submitted by a school, sports team, club, or community group. (All group entries must adhere to Covid19 guidelines at the time of recording).


Adrian added “The ‘TikTok Mic Drop’ video competition is a great opportunity to engage all age groups from primary and secondary school pupils, college students and all members of our society who use TikTok and with an interest in promoting the important road safety message in County Monaghan”.


iRadio CEO Mark Cunning said “We’re delighted to be involved with Monaghan County Council together with the other County Councils in our region who are participating. Over the years we’ve had to air far too many stories on iRadio about the loss of young lives on our roads.  Our aim is to educate though entertainment and interaction, I’m really looking forward to seeing you, the user, generate content from this initiative.’


Entries to this competition are via TikTok.  Videos should be shared on the entrants own platform and tag/mention @Thisisiradio and #Monaghan. Full details are available at Entries can be submitted from Monday 8th March and the closing date is Wednesday 24th March.

Message from HSE: COVID-19 vaccination is underway

We all know that COVID-19 is a highly infectious disease which can cause serious illness, hospitalisation and even death.

The COVID-19 vaccine will offer you protection from COVID-19. If you do catch COVID-19 after vaccination, you should be protected from the serious illness the virus can sometimes cause. Over 350,000 doses of the vaccine have been administered in Ireland.

Who is being vaccinated now?

Supplies of the vaccine are limited at the moment, so people who are most at risk from COVID-19 are being vaccinated first.

This means people living in long-term care, frontline healthcare workers, and people aged 70 and over. We’re currently vaccinating people aged 85 and over, and people aged 80 and over will be next.

People don’t need to register in advance at the moment – we’ll let you know when it’s your turn to be offered the vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine is free. It will not be available privately.

Our aim in offering the vaccine to the population is to protect people and reduce the illness and deaths caused by this virus.

More Information

We encourage everyone to find answers to their questions from a trusted source, like the HSE website, our official social media channels, or the HSE’s HSElive information service on 1850 24 1850.

You can also ask your doctor, pharmacist or healthcare team about the vaccine.

Sheol an tUachtarán Seachtain na Gaeilge 2021, le hóráid speisialta

Sheol an tUachtarán Seachtain na Gaeilge 2021, le hóráid speisialta.

Speech  Video le haighaidh tuillead eolas lean na nasc seo


Is féile idirnáisiúnta Ghaeilge í Seachtain na Gaeilge, atá ar an gceiliúradh is mó dár dteanga agus dár gcultúr dúchais a bhíonn ar siúl in Éirinn agus in go leor tíortha eile gach bliain.


Tá a théarma oifige úsáidte ag an Uachtarán Ó hUigínn chun an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn. I rith a shaol gairmiúil, thacaigh an tUachtarán Ó hUigínn leis an nGaeilge agus bhí sé ar dhuine de thiománaithe taobh thiar de bhunú Teilifís na Gaeilge, TG4 mar atá anois.


Dúirt an tUachtarán Ó hUigínn gur Uachtaránacht Smaointe a bheadh aige, uachtaránacht báúil don teanga, do choincheapa agus do thoimhdí neamhráite. Ó shin, léirigh sé áit lárnach na Gaeilge inár stair agus inár gcultúr go minic, agus spreag sé daoine go leanúnach chun an teanga a labhairt, fiú mura bhfuil acu ach ‘cúpla focal’.


Cé go bhfuil sé tábhachtach an teanga a chaomhnú, spreagann an tUachtarán an dátheangachas agus ‘Gaeltachtaí’ praiticiúla a chruthú – i dtithe, scoileanna agus i measc cairde.


Ina óráid in 2016 ‘Gaeilge sa Ghairdín’, dúirt an tUachtarán go bhfuair ceannairí Éirí Amach 1916 inspioráid ó fhís Éire neamhspleách a raibh a teanga á labhairt agus á scríobh, agus go raibh cúigear den seachtar a shínigh an Forógra gníomhach i gConradh na Gaeilge.


Ina aitheasc ag Ard Fheis Chonradh na Gaeilge 2016, d’aithin an tUachtarán Ó hUigínn na deacrachtaí a bhaineann le cur chun cinn na Gaeilge, ach léirigh sé an dul chun cinn atá á dhéanamh agus an fás sa suim atá ag daoine sa teanga.


Ina óráid ag ceiliúradh comóradh 20 bliain de TG4, thug an tUachtarán aitheantas don stáisiún teilifíse mar mhodh chun naisc a chothú idir na pobail scaipthe a úsáideann an Ghaeilge.


President Higgins launched Seachtain na Gaeilge 2021 on the 1st of March.

Click on the Speech or Video tabs for more information.


Seachtain na Gaeilge (Irish Language Week) is an international Irish language festival and one of the biggest celebrations of our native language and culture, that takes place each year in Ireland and in many other countries.

President Higgins has used his term in office to promote the Irish language. Throughout his career, President Higgins has championed the Irish language and he was one of the driving forces behind the establishment of Teilifís na Gaeilge, now TG4.

In his first term in office, President Higgins said that he aimed for his Presidency to be one of Ideas, and one sensitive to language, concepts and unspoken assumptions. Since then, he has on many occasions highlighted the central place of the Irish language in our history and culture, consistently encouraging people to speak the language, even if they only have the ‘cúpla focail.’

In his 2016 ‘Ghaeilge sa Ghairdín’ speech, the President highlighted that the leaders of the 1916 Rising were inspired by a vision of an independent Ireland whose language was spoken and written, and that five of the seven who signed the Proclamation were active in the Irish Language League.

In his address to the 2016 Conradh na Gaeilge Ard Fheis, President Higgins recognised the difficulties involved in the promotion of Irish, but highlighted the progress being made and the growth of interest in the language.

In his speech at the celebrations of TG4’s 20th anniversary, the President paid tribute to the television station as a means to foster links between the dispersed communities that use Irish.

Imelda May, Declan Hannon & Bláthnaid Tracey fógartha mar ambasadóirí ar fhéile Seachtain na Gaeilge le Energia 2021

Imelda May, Declan Hannon & Bláthnaid Tracey fógartha mar ambasadóirí ar fhéile Seachtain na Gaeilge le Energia 2021
Beidh an fhéile idirnáisiúnta ar siúl ón 1 – 17 Márta

Seachtain na Gaeilge le Energia 2021

Tá an ceoltóir Imelda May, captaen fhoireann iomána Luimnigh Declan Hannon agus an craoltóir Bláthnaid Treacy ag teacht le chéile mar ambasadóirí teanga d’fhéile na bliana seo. Tá sé mar aidhm ag an bhfeachtas seo daoine ar leibhéil éagsúla Gaeilge a spreagadh chun a bheith páirteach in imeachtaí dírithe ar an teanga. Bíonn an fhéile idirnáisiúnta bhliantúil ar siúl ón 1 Márta go dtí an 17 Márta le clár imeachtaí Gaeilge arna eagrú ag grúpaí pobail, scoileanna, grúpaí cultúrtha agus spóirt in Éirinn agus go hidirnáisiúnta.

D’fhógair Seachtain na Gaeilge le Energia a n-ambasadóirí d’fhéile na bliana seo agus iad ag súil le clár d’imeachtaí tarraingteacha a sheoladh atá curtha le chéile chun ár dteanga dhúchais a cheiliúradh sa bhaile agus ar fud na cruinne. Rinneadh an fógra beo ar an aer ar RTÉ 2FM mar chuid de sheó dátheangach StaidAir atá dírithe ar mhic léinn na hArdteiste.

Dúirt Bláthnaid Treacy, ambasadóir Sheachtain na Gaeilge le Energia: 
“Tá ríméad orm a bheith mar ambasadóir do Sheachtain na Gaeilge le Energia i mbliana! Táim sona sásta mo chuid dualgas a roinnt leis an dá ambasadóir eile, Declan agus Imelda, atá mar eiseamláirí ina gcuid réimsí. Is mór an onóir a bheith in ann an Ghaeilge a chur chun cinn agus bhí mé an-bhródúil asam féin nuair a d’fhógair mé ambasadóirí na bliana seo ar mo chlár ar RTÉ 2fm, StaidAir. Táim ag tnúth go mór leis an bhféile agus tá súil agam go mbeidh níos mó daoine ag úsáid a gcúpla focal!”

Dúirt Conchubhair Mac Lochlainn, cathaoirleach Sheachtain na Gaeilge le Energia: 
“I mbliana beidh go leor imeachtaí ar siúl ar líne, mar sin tá níos mó deiseanna ná riamh ann do dhaoine páirt a ghlacadh san fhéile, is cuma cá bhfuil siad. Molaim d’éinne, is cuma cén leibhéal Gaeilge atá acu, páirt a ghlacadh in imeachtaí i mbliana. Ó dhaoine ag tosú ar a dturas teanga, iad siúd atá ag foghlaim arís agus daoine atá líofa ach nach bhfaigheann an deis a gcuid Gaeilge a úsáid chomh minic agus ba mhaith leo, tá ócáid ann do gach duine.”

Dúirt Amy O’Shaughnessy, Bainisteoir Urraíochta Energia:
“Tá ríméad orainn go bhfuil Imelda May, Declan Hannon agus Bláthnaid Treacy linn mar ambasadóirí d’fhéile Sheachtain na Gaeilge le Energia i mbliana. Is comhlacht Éireannach muid agus mar gheall air sin ba mhaith linn go gcuirfidh daoine a gcroí isteach sa chultúr Éireannach agus spreagadh a thabhairt do gach éinne a gcuid cúpla focal a úsáid le linn fhéile na bliana seo. Tá réimse leathan imeachtaí ar siúl do dhaoine ag gach aon leibhéal Gaeilge agus is deis iontach í le snas a chur ar ár gcuid Gaeilge agus sinn ar fad sa bhaile mar gheall ar an dianghlasáil.”

Is í an fhéile bhliantúil Seachtain na Gaeilge le Energia an fhéile idirnáisiúnta Gaeilge is mó agus bíonn sí ar siúl gach bliain i mí an Mhárta. Beidh féile na bliana seo ar siúl ón 1 – 17 Márta agus na mílte gníomhaíocht ar siúl ar fud an domhain chun teanga dhúchais na hÉireann a cheiliúradh. Is féidir liosta iomlán d’imeachtaí agus de ghníomhaíochtaí Sheachtain na Gaeilge le Energia a fháil ó:

Tá an fhéile eagraithe ag Conradh na Gaeilge ó 1902 agus táimid buíoch den tacaíocht ó Fhoras na Gaeilge agus Energia.
