We have been asked by Billy Kelly to post this information on


The next Speakers Corner session takes place on Monday of next week - 31st May at 9pm.

Titled - 'Apartheid healthcare in unfair times - is there any way out?'
Sara Burke - journalist, broadcaster, policy analyst and author of the much acclaimed “Irish Apartheid - Healthcare Inequality in Ireland” (New Ireland 2009) will be the lead speaker at the Speakers Corner on Monday evening 31st May at 9pm, in the White House, O'Connell Street, Limerick.

If you care about the state of the Health Service this is your opportunity to hear and talk about this topical issue with a leading commentator in the field.

Sara will discuss the impact of recent ‘emergency’ budgetary measures on the health system, the increased privatisation of health care and should public funds be used to buttress private medicine.

For the first time in the history of the State, all opposition political parties are in favour of universal health care – is this just a veiled promise or is there any reason for hope?

Past Speakers
The Moyross Monks (officially known as the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal) were our lead speakers on Monday 17th May. I would like to thank Br. Shawn, Br. Cyril and Fr. Paulus for taking the time to share their experience & views with us. A lively discussion was had on the night.
