first_imgNewsWater charge boycott is winning says PrendivilleBy John Keogh – July 2, 2015 761 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Linkedin Facebook  CITY North councillor Cian Prendiville urged those attending the We Won’t Pay campaign’s Water Bill Bonfire on Saturday to hold off on paying their water bills as the water charges boycott is “winning”.Speaking at the event, which saw about 200 members of the public burn their Irish Water bills at City Hall, the Anti-Austerity Alliance councillor advised anyone considering paying the charge to “hold off, as any money handed over before the general election could be money down the drain if we succeed in getting these charges abolished”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Despite all the Government’s threats and legislation, it is still the case that there are no penalties, late payment fees or interest before the general election. If the boycott that has been established holds firm, it will force the abolition of these charges in that election, just like happened in Limerick in the 1991 local elections, and nationally in the run up to the 1997 general election.“For those considering paying they should remember that on both those occasions, when the charges were abolished then, no refunds were issued. The money paid was lost – money down the drain. I’d advise everyone therefore to hold firm, and don’t give Irish Water any money. Even those who paid the first bill shouldn’t send good money after bad – they should join the boycott now as the second bills go out,” continued Cllr Prendiville.Cllr Prendiville assured that “everyone can safely boycott at least until the general election, piling the pressure on all the parties and independents in that election”.He concluded: “There will be non-payment candidates standing across the country in those elections too, and I’d encourage non-payers to only support those parties that support non-payment.” WhatsApp Print Email Limerick customers to benefit from extension of Irish Water’s First Fix free scheme to tackle leaks center_img TAGS’We Won’t Pay’Anti Austerity Alliancecity hallCllr Cian PrendivilleIrish WaterlimerickWater Charges Update: Works underway to resolve discolouration of water in Raheen area Abbeyfeale water supply gets the all clear Twitter Previous articleSuspect further detained as 80 gardai investigate shootingNext articleCamogie – Limerick face Wexford in game three of Championship John Keoghhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Irish Water to replace old water mains on St Nessan’s Road Pictures reveal damage caused by wipes being flushed down Limerick’s loos Irish Water defers introduction of new business charges during the Covid 19 emergency last_img read more

While unable to pull away a win they were two very good games.The 7th Grade Lady Cards had a final score of 36-17. At the half we pulled back from 6-11 to 11-13. We got in a bit of foul trouble leading us to have to play more cautious the second half which in return drew their lead from us.The Lady Cards hustled and worked very hard. Scoring for the Lady Cards were Megan Bauer with 8pts, Ella Smith with 6pts, and Megan Raab with 3pts. Summer Ratcliffe, Anna Wanstrath, and Alys Cochran were doing a great job hustling for the ball to get a steal or rebound. Nice job ladies.The 8th Grade Lady Cards had a final score of 22-21. This was such a great game to watch and coach. While we may not have come out with the win there were many things that led up to the final score.Scoring for SLS were Emma Weberding with 8pts, Ava Allen with 6pts, Kate Voegele with 4pts, Aylssa Wanstrath with 2pts, and Lilly Wonnell with 1pts. We did a great job of shooting free throws and hustling. We did a great job pressing, breaking a press, and running our defense and offense. Heads held high because a lot was done right but out of our control.Courtesy of Cardinals Coach Erin Trenkamp.last_img read more
