Fewer people presented as homeless or potentially homeless to Kilkenny County Council during almost every month last year, when compared to the year before.

Figures for both years have been released by the council’s Chief Executive.

The latest statistics from Kilkenny County Council show that the only two months in 2017 when there were more presentations than in 2016, were March and July.

July was also the busiest month out of them all last year when 34 people came to the council for assistance, compared with 31 the year before.

The busiest month the year before was January when 37 people presented.

All in all, a total of 349 people sought help from the council’s homelessness services in 2016, and 319 did so last year.

By the end of December just gone, there were 49 people in emergency accommodation in Kilkenny.

And the council says there were no people found rough sleeping in Kilkenny City and Environs on the night of the Official Rough Sleepers Count carried out on the 28th – into the 29th – of December.

Legislation to pave the way for a Technological University for the South East is in its final stages.

That’s according to the Education Minister Richard Bruton who is in IT Carlow today for a special education forum.

It had been hoped the legislation would have been passed by the end of 2017 but the Minister says it’s very close to being finalised now.

Speaking to KCLR Live this morning Minister Bruton said while some of the new Technological Universities should be up and running later this year, the merger between Carlow and Waterford is not quite there yet.

However, he says he knows how vitally important it is to the region.

“Under-funded, under-staffed and under-pressure”.

That’s how Fianna Fail Deputy John McGuinness described the Department of Psychiatry at St Lukes hospital in the Dáil last night.

He outlined how 51 patients were being cared for in a 44- bed unit on Monday saying some of the patients are in an inappropriate setting as they are forced to wait 3-6 months for counselling services.

And he questioned Minister Finian McGrath about what he plans to do to address the crisis there.

Deputy McGuinness also pointed out that people are being referred for counselling to local suicide prevention service Teac Tom.

He says its unfair as the HSE is not funding that service.

All of the members of Kilkenny county council now have the power to grant a Civic Honour.

Members were split down the middle when it came to a vote on the matter at yesterday’s monthly meeting.

So it was down to the Cathaoirleach David Fitzgerald’s casting vote to carry the proposal.

He told KCLR afterwards what it will mean:

“We adopted a protocal to allow people in the Piltown Electoral District and people in the Castlecomer Electoral District to be granted Civic Honours.

“It’s an important decision but I have to say that I was very surprised that four members – two from the Castlecomer District and two from the Piltown District – actually voted against it.”

With eight Kilkenny GP’s due to retire in the next five years concerns are being raised over who might replace them.

Ronan Fawsitt says there are already not enough doctors to meet demand in the county.

However, he says that with the impending retirements and the number of young doctors leaving it’s not a good recipe for the future.

And he says surgeries will close because of it.

There were no fines given out to people in Kilkenny or Carlow last year for dog fouling.

Across the country only one local authority managed to get a fine handed over.

While both counties didn’t issue any fines last year, there were problems reported in both counties with dog poo on footpaths and on other public areas.

Anti-dog fouling campaigns have been happening with the Green Dog Walker Programme in Kilkenny running up until 2016 with another one last year focusing on the potential health impacts it can have on people.

In Carlow they mounted a big campaign which featured children and those in wheelchairs on what happens when they come in contact with it.

The last fines issued in Kilkenny were in 2015 when two were handed out and there were four in 2014.

Legislation is being discussed at government level at the moment to increase powers to environmental officers.

The controversy over the new Tenants Handbook in Kilkenny rolls on.

It has prompted a special meeting of members after the matter came up at yesterday’s monthly council meeting.

The updated handbook was delivered to local authority tenants in recent weeks but some tenants had expressed concerns over changes to their responsibilities.

Councillor Andrew McGuinness chairs the Housing Strategic Policy Committee – he says any policy changes would have to be passed at that committee.

He has called for the emergency meeting.
