The Week: Boil notice lifted for 33,000 homes, Covid Jabs, EU Digital Certs, World Championship Rowing and more

You’re reading The Week on KCLR, highlighting some of the stories you may have missed on-air and online.

Today we look into the Covid-19 jab and the debate over whether to get it or not. The EU Digital cert is part of that too and if you don’t have it you might not be able to dine indoors and do other things.

We talk to a Carlow woman rowing for Ireland at the World Championships, and thank god, a boil water notice for Carlow Town and surrounds is lifted.

EU Digital Cert Issues

On Wednesday, we heard from Joseph Kavanagh who received the incorrect EU Digital Certificate in the mail despite it being addressed to him.

Apparently, this has been happening to numerous people as the government gets to grips with the rolling out of the certificate.

Here is what happened when Joseph spoke to Eimear on KCLR live, see below.

To Jab or not to Jab

Listener Tommy Roche joined Eimear in the studio to discuss his concerns with regard to mandatory vaccination.

Tommy does not wish to be vaccinated and feels that vaccine passports amount to Government discrimination.

Retired GP Dr. John Cuddihy, who has been involved with the vaccine rollout at Cillín Hill, adds his voice to the debate.

Carlow Boil Water Notice is lifted

The HSE lifted a boil water notice in Carlow town and all across the north of the county on Wednesday.

The outage had affected 33,000 Carlow residents and was out in place for the Tullow and Rathvilly public supplies since the previous Thursday.

Irish Water tested the water quality over a few days and the HSE agreed to lift the boil water notice, just in time for the nice weather.

There’s plenty more from across the week here on KCLR.
