Planning, roads and environment go hand in hand and now it’s been made more difficult for people from the County by carving them up,” said Cllr Keary.“It’s disgraceful that there isn’t even a public toilet for customers at the new Council office in Patrick Street. Ye talk about putting people first, but ye are putting them last,” he said.The Fine Gael councillor also stated that he had “major difficulty” that promises made by the Council executive 18 months ago, before the merger, to bring all services under the one roof in Rathkeale, had not been honoured.“We were told it would be like a mini County Hall, but the office hasn’t changed,” said Cllr Keary.Cllr Richard O’Donoghue (FF) seconded Cllr Keary’s motion to have the three planning departments reinstated in County Hall. The first-time councillor reminded the Council executive that it was tasked with serving the people of County Limerick and not just the city.“The County has looked after the City long enough. You’ve made it harder now for people in the country to get to ye. The system that was in place in Dooradoyle was perfect and its time to put it back the way it was,” he said.Cllr Ciara McMahon (SF) agreed that all the local authority offices were based in the City and did not serve those living in rural areas.“A return journey from Ballyhahill into the city is 74 miles. What happens if I don’t drive and need to conduct business with the planning department?” she asked.Council director of finance and director of the new municipal district of Adare-Rathkeale, Tom Gilligan told councillors that he was “disappointed” to hear their comments. He said that the newly merged local authority was at the “birth stage” and insisted that “putting people first” was at its core.Cathaoirleach of Limerick City and County Council, Cllr Kevin Sheahan (FF), told council members that there was nothing said at the historic first meeting that he didn’t disagree with. He also predicted that teething problems within the newly merged local authority would “come right eventually”.Newly elected Cathaoirleach of the Adare-Rathkeale municipal district, Cllr Tom Neville (FG), said it was vitally important that all services were retained in the area.

Auburn to Honor Charles Barkley with Statue Outside Arena

? | It’s official, former @AuburnMBB great Charles Barkley will be honored by #Auburn with his own statue.His reaction⬇️#WarEagle pic.twitter.com/GgkW8RIYqg— Auburn Tigers (@AuburnTigers) October 22, 2016Barkley played at Auburn from 1981-84 and went on to win All-American honors on his way to becoming an Olympic gold medal winner, AuburnTigers.com reports. He began his career in the NBA as a first-round draft pick by the Philadelphia 76ers in 1984. Barkley became a Hall of Fame hooper and was later named as one of the NBA’s 50 greatest players during the league’s 50th anniversary season.Auburn officials said the new statue will recognize the former athlete’s many accomplishments during his time at the university and beyond. The school retired Barkley’s jersey in 2001.“It’s more than about what Charles Barkley accomplished here at Auburn, which is certainly historic, but it has been about his life’s work and contribution,” said Auburn basketball coach Bruce Pearl. “We want to recognize one of the most respected, philanthropic NBA legends, Hall of Famer, for his lifetime achievements.“Our Auburn Family is so blessed to have an Auburn man like Charles Barkley in the public eye representing us,” Pearl continued. “A statue and a symbol like this serves to bring attention to that and will stand the test of time.”According to the Washington Post, Barkley averaged 14.1 points and 9.6 rebounds for Auburn as 1983-84 SEC player of the year, which earned him the nickname “The Round Mound of Rebound” for his unusual physique. Barkley has since gained notoriety as an entertaining, and oftentimes sharp-tongued sports commentator for TNT.“More than anything, Charles Barkley has become a global icon and this award honors the contributions he has given to Auburn both on and off the floor,” said Chuck Person, Auburn basketball’s associate head coach who played with Barkley at the university. “What an honor, and Auburn couldn’t have done this for a better man, my friend, Charles Barkley.” Charles Barkley. Photo by Brett Davis, USA TODAY Sports.Retired basketball star Charles Barkley is set to receive a statue outside Auburn Arena — making him the first former athlete who wasn’t a football player to be immortalized on the university’s campus.According to the Washington Post, the school announced plans to a erect a statue in Barkley’s name during Auburn’s 56-3 win over the University of Arkansas Razorbacks on Saturday. The retired basketballer will be the fourth former Auburn athlete to have a statue built in his honor, joining the Tigers’ Heisman Trophy winners Bo Jackson, Pat Sullivan and Cam Newton.“It just means a great deal to me,” Barkley told AuburnTigers.com. “Being a kid from Alabama, going to Auburn. I think everybody knows what Auburn means to me. It’s going to be pretty cool.”Watch as Charles Barkley learns he’ll soon have a statue at Auburn Arena (from @BoJackson on video board), then Bo appears in Groves jersey. pic.twitter.com/ESRTl81b8J— Jeff Shearer (@jeff_shearer) October 22, 2016 read more
