TRoseann Brennan's son Jake was only six-years-old when he was knocked down outside his home in a housing estate in Kilkenny. Roseann is now campaigning to have a maximum speed limit of 20kph enacted in all housing estates in the country. The dedicated mother recently held a vigil outside the Dail to highlight her cause. I hope she succeeds in this necessary campaign.
o We often hear how hard politicians work to stay on top of their brief - all the long hours, the meetings, the calls etc. Many of us don't believe it. How refreshing then to read of the work of Michelle Mulherin, who has paid a further €1,295 for calls she made from Leinster House to an advisor in Kenya. She paid back €2,000 for calls last January. Now that's work.
