Old Dublin Society Press Release

As part of the National Heritage Week, the Old Dublin Society will present a talk on Watson?s Nursery 1884-1967: From Clontarf to Killiney on Wednesday, August 23rd in Dublin City?s Library & Archive, 138 Pearse Street, Dublin 2 at 6pm. The talk will be given by Mrs. Bernardine Ruddy, President of the Old Dublin Society - the premier history society for Dublin and Dubliners established in 1934. Booking is strongly recommended: dublinstudies@dublincity.ie or telephone: 01 6744999

Till its closure in 1967, Watson?s Nursery had a high profile in the world of horticulture. It was synonymous with quality and reliability with shops in Nassau Street and enjoyed an extensive mail order business at home and abroad. The move from Clontarf was due to being landlocked by the railway line and open sea. And so the move to Killiney was accomplished by 1920 and enabled them to enlarge their business. Now the Watson family name is perpetuated in the naming of the roads and avenues in Killiney, Co. Dublin forever more.

The Old Dublin Society holds Spring and Autumn public talks on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays in Pearse Street Library & Archive at 6pm. More details are available at www.olddublinsociety.ie or contact olddublinsociety@gmail.com or text/voicemail: 086 3049706

Stop Irish Greyhounds from being sent by the IGB to china.
This demonstration today is to call for a BOYCOTT of goods from China and to appeal to the Ireland-Chinese Business Association to condemn all barbarity to dogs including Irish Greyhounds in China.We ask them to speak out on behalf of the tortured souls who are not protected by any Chinese legislation as none exists.We need their help to support change.This cannot be ignored any longer by businesses trying to entice Irish-Chinese trade links. Stop turning a blind eye to unacceptable practices that have been exposed. Many Irish people are horrified by how dogs are treated.

Many Ex- Racing dogs have been shipped from Ireland to China, a country where dogs are routinely being boiled alive. The Irish Government have stood idly by as the IGB condone the export of ex- racing dogs. Many of the Irish dogs are ultimately at risk of being boiled alive in China for the meat trade. The Chinese don't care, the Irish Government don't care, The IGB couldnt care less either or they would not be allowing this.

We urge a boycott of all travel to China and ask the Irish people to shun all Chinese goods and services until this injustice is stopped.

Shale Gas Bulletin - Issue No. 107 - July 1, 2017
Ireland has become the fourth European country to ban hydraulic fracturing (after France, Bulgaria and Germany). On June 28, the Petroleum and Other Minerals Development (Prohibition of Onshore Hydraulic Fracturing) Bill passed the final legislative stages in the Seanad.

The session included the committee, report, and final stages that took place in the Seanad chamber, where the gallery was full of supporters of the ban. It now requires only the signature of President Michael D. Higgins to become law. This is expected in the coming days.
