The Expo will take Health and Wellbeing to the next level by bringing the information directly to the community, providing FREE access to practical information, support services, influential guest speakers and much more that will offer people a real chance to start off the year on the right note.

The event, which is in association with Clonmel Healthcare aims to educate, motivate and encourage the people of Tipperary and its surrounds to lead a more healthy and active lifestyle as well as boosting their overall wellbeing. Speakers on the day include much loved sports pundit Brent Pope who will talk about achieving Positive Mental Health, Tipperary native, Professor Eamon O’Shea, Director of the Centre for Economic and Social Research on Dementia at NUI Galway will  advise on how to live well with dementia, Social Media and Digital Content Officer for the University of Limerick and mental health campaigner, Tony Sheridan will share his experience on how to balance social media in your life and Michael O’Doherty, a pioneer in the field of healthcare and best-selling author with over 26 year’s experience in guiding people back to good health will discuss the topic, what you think is as important as what you eat .

Martin Gallagher, Director of Marketing, Business Development & Licensing at Clonmel Healthcare said “We at Clonmel Healthcare are delighted to be associated with this health and wellness initiative. Particularly as it is aimed at Tipperary natives. Clonmel Healthcare has been based in the town of Clonmel since 1970. From its small beginnings it is now one of the largest supplier of medicine in terms of volume into the Irish market.

There is not a home in Ireland that doesn’t have a Clonmel Healthcare product in its medicine cabinet, for example Paralief and Easofen from its Analgesic range to Caldesene Powder from its baby product range, all available in pharmacies.  As part of the Wellbeing Expo the company are offering some free health checks on its stand, and we are looking forward to meeting as many people as possible in order to encourage better health”, he continued.

Commenting on the Health and Wellbeing Expo, Tipp FM’s Exhibition Organiser Jenny Foley said “We felt it was an ideal time to encourage people to start thinking about doing something really positive for themselves in the coming year. This has been in the planning now for several months and the response has been amazing. We will also have practical workshops on the day and they’ll include an introduction to wellness with Health & Fitness Ireland, back to health – back care with Neil Dennehy. In addition to all this there will be more than 30 exhibition stands and free health screening on the day for cholesterol, diabetes and hearing as well as free exercise classes. We are encouraging everyone to come along on the day, there really is something to suit everyone of all ages”.

Exchequer Returns Continue to Support Case for Significant Growth in Capital Expenditure

  

Commenting on the release of yesterday’s (3rd January 2018) Fiscal Monitor, Ian Talbot, Chief Executive of Chambers Ireland said,

“The strong taxation performance recorded for the year of 2017 is a welcome indicator of continued economic growth and stability.

Reflecting on these results, the case to increase investment in infrastructure and public services remains very strong.

This would consolidate Ireland’s current business environment as we evolve our economic strategy to enable us to continue to grow strongly even as we face future uncertainties."

The Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation

 has announced a new round of the tariff suspension/quota schemes and is calling for applications from manufacturers in the chemicals, microelectronic and related sectors. The tariff suspension scheme offers the possibility for such companies to import raw materials, components or intermediate products from outside the European Union free from tariff duty, if the item cannot be sourced in the EU. The tariff quota scheme is designed to address shortages in the availability of required materials within the EU and can be applied for in the same way as suspensions. 


Closing date and time for the receipt of the next round of applications is 5.30p.m. on Friday, 26 January 2018. Applications should be sent by e-mail to tariffschemes@dbei.gov.ie and posted to the Department. Please note that late or incomplete applications will not be accepted.  


The suspension of duties on these applications, if they are successful, will come into effect 12 months after the application is made.
