1) This is an important report from @EPAIreland

The EPA is one of #IrishWater's regulators. Its job is to ensure IW does its job and provides us with clean, safe water

But after the Leixlip debacle it says it wants stronger enforcement powers

This report warns that...

2) …Ireland’s river water is deteriorating badly.

Only 53% (and declining) is now deemed “satisfactory”.

Groundwater is FAR better – 92% (and improving) is “good”.

Yet, despite plentiful groundwater nearby, Dublin gets 99% of its water from RIVERS.

And #IrishWater’s plan?
3) #IrishWater cd develop some of the groundwater (wells) on Dublin’s doorstep and give Dublin some vital DIVERSIFICATION

Instead it wants to pump yet more RIVER water from the Shannon, making Dublin even MORE exposed to rivers than it already is

Does this make sense?

One thing that would have helped me come out sooner was having access to language. I didn't know about non binary, genderfluid, agender, etc. My whole understanding of transgender was a boy who wants to be a girl or a girl who wants to be a boy. #SolidariT
I think it was being 'born in the wrong body'. I knew I was bisexual since I was 12 because I read the word bisexual in a magazine and something clicked inside me. Imagine if I had read the word non-binary, what kind of teenhood I could have had? #SolidariT
I came out after I finished secondary school because I was already bullied for being 'weird' and 'different'. My reasoning was I didn't want to give them another reason to bully me. There was only about 3 out people in my year, none of them were trans. #SolidariT

"The best-case scenario about the Maurice McCabe shambles seems to the State is capable of accidentally creating the worst false allegations possible and destroying completely the life of a whistleblower. That's the best case.
"That in Ireland someone can be branded by the State a child-rapist by mistake.

If such a thing is possible, that's terrifying. And the alternative – that the State deliberately set out to completely destroy Sergeant McCabe – is even worse."
