Is this a eucalyptus?




If this is a eucalyptus then Vincent Carmody might have discovered why it is bare of leaves in the height of summer.

Vincent writes:

“In your blog of 31/6 you had a photograph of a bare tree in the Towm Park and posed the question, why is it bare ? Is it a eucalyptus tree? if so, the answer is on page 1 of today’s Irish Examiner Farming section.

This contains an article on Beetle pest, part of which states,

“It is the first leaf beetle of its kind to become established in Europe, and was initially discovered damaging foliage crops in Kerry in 2007. It is now commonly found in many areas of Co. Cork.Predictions of the pattern of spread suggest that it only a matter of time before it is established throughout the island, posing a bio-security risk also to the U.K. and mainland Europe. The colourful beetle defoliates eucalyptus trees and even small amounts of damage renders renders eucalyptus foliage crops unmarketable.” 

So now you know, if it is a eucalyptus tree…. if not, one can learn something new everyday !!!”

Department
of Finance
Description: http://nai.adlibhosting.com/images/plus.gif

Administrative
History/Biography

Past
responsibilities of the Department of Finance have included fiscal, budgetary
and economic policy; taxation (from 1923); the preparation and auditing of
the national accounts and the annual budget, the collection of revenue and
expenditure by government agencies, exchequer accounts and payrolls; the
management of the Civil Service including recruitment, staffing,
establishment, promotion, remuneration and conditions, pensions, conciliation
and arbitration; the preparation and examination of Bills; economic
forecasting, planning and development (from 1959); European Union policy
co-ordination and the European Union budget and funds. It was allocated
responsibility in January and April 1922 for the control of a wide number of
agencies taken over from the previous administration and is currently directly
responsible for overseeing the administration of the Revenue Commissioners,
the Office of Public Works, the Civil Service Commission, the Valuation
Office, the Ordnance Survey, the State Laboratory and the Office of the
Ombudsman and Information Commissioner. The initial official designation of
the Department under the Provisional Government (1922) was ´Finance and
General´, but the title never seems to have been used. Before April 1922, the
non-official titles employed were ‘Treasury’ or ‘Ministry of Finance’ [or
Aireacht Airgid in Irish]. From 1 April 1922 by order of the Executive
Council [the Cabinet], its official title became the ‘Ministry of Finance’.
The term ´Treasury´ persisted less formally, and references to ´Finance
Department´ also occur in Executive Council minutes. Official titles of
offices were not formally settled until the Ministers and Secretaries Act
1924, when the title the Department of Finance [or An Roinn Airgid in Irish]
was established. The Department can also trace part of its provenance to the
Dáil Éireann Department of Finance.

the Valuation Office, the Ordnance Survey, the State Laboratory and the
Office of the Ombudsman and Information Commissioner. The initial official
designation of the Department under the Provisional Government (1922) was
´Finance and General´, but the title never seems to have been used. Before
April 1922, the non-official titles employed were ‘Treasury’ or ‘Ministry
of Finance’ [or Aireacht Airgid in Irish]. From 1 April 1922 by order of
the Executive Council [the Cabinet], its official title became the
‘Ministry of Finance’. The term ´Treasury´ persisted less formally, and
references to ´Finance Department´ also occur in Executive Council minutes.
Official titles of offices were not formally settled until the Ministers
and Secretaries Act 1924, when the title the Department of Finance [or An
Roinn Airgid in Irish] was established. The Department can also trace part of
its provenance to the Dáil Éireann Department of Finance.

A Little something for the weekend




class photos, Lucozade and Gabriel Byrne

In case anyone missed this in The Advertiser. …

Sorry about the very poor quality.

While I was in Scoil Realts na Maidine to vote I spotted some class photos on the walls. I took a few snaps and I’ll let you have a look over the next few days. Here is the first one;

Mr. Kenny’s class 1997/98

Aah!

Leo Finucane launched his video celebration of Paddy and Mick Finucane in St. John’s on Friday night. Jer. took his camera and recorded friends and neighbours of the Finucane family enjoying the night out. Leo’s DVD is available in local shops, priced €10.
