Save Saint Luke’s Cancer Hospital Campaign Leaflet September 10, 2010


A recent leaflet issued by the Save Saint Luke’s Cancer Hospital Campaign.
Minister Harney announced in 2005 that St James’ Hospital would be the southside centre of excellence with the consequence that down the line St Luke’s would close.
In 2006, St Luke’s patient Joe Guilfoyle started a national campaign to save St Luke’s which quickly gathered members all over Ireland.
Supporters of the campaign are encouraged to meet their local Fianna Fail or Green TD to discuss the issue.
At Present St Luke’s is due to be wound down and closed in 2014.
The campaign is not affiliated to any political party.

Enid O’Dowd -Green Alliance -Pembroke 1985 Local Elections February 24, 2010

Enid O’Dowd polled well but with the likes of well established community activist Carmencita Hederman on the ballot paper it was unlikely she would get in. The Green Party won a seat in Pembroke in the 1991 local Elections through Claire Wheeler.
More recently Enid O’Dowd has been doing some great work on Oireachtas expenses with a number of articles in the Irish Times and an appearance on Liveline.
