Nasdaq and ICE firm up NYSE Euronext bid

first_imgTuesday 19 April 2011 4:17 pm whatsapp Tags: NULL whatsapp Nasdaq OMX and Intercontinental Exchange have promised to pay a $350m (£215m) fee to NYSE Euronext if regulators knock down their takeover offer, in a bid to get NYSE to start deal talks.Nasdaq and ICE also said they had secured committed financing from banks to back their $11.1bn bid for NYSE, and expected US antitrust regulators to start a review of their bid soon. A merged Nasdaq and NYSE would have a virtual stranglehold on US stock listings.The announcement was designed to address two key concerns raised by NYSE’s board: antitrust risk and strategic fit. NYSE had unanimously rejected Nasdaq and ICE’s bid in favor of a $9.8bn deal with Germany’s Deutsche Boerse. NYSE said it will review the revised bid submitted by Nasdaq and ICE. But the $350m reverse breakup fee offered by Nasdaq and ICE falls far short of the $1bn or more that sources have said NYSE would likely want. “I don’t know that it moves the needle,” said Patrick O’Shaughnessy, an equity research analyst with Raymond James. “The only real change to deal terms is the breakup fee, and I am not sure that it is large enough to sway the NYSE board.”Another analyst said the breakup fee “incrementally communicates” Nasdaq and ICE’s belief that their deal would pass regulatory muster.The fee is about the same as the €250m that NYSE would have to pay Deutsche Boerse if it opts to go with the Nasdaq bid. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStorySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediaLuxury SUVs | Search AdsThese Cars Are So Loaded It’s Hard to Believe They’re So CheapLuxury SUVs | Search AdsBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen Heraldautooverload.comDeclassified Vietnam War Photos The Public Wasn’t Meant To Seeautooverload.com Read This NextRicky Schroder Calls Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl ‘Ignorant Punk’ forThe WrapCNN’s Brian Stelter Draws Criticism for Asking Jen Psaki: ‘What Does theThe WrapPink Floyd’s Roger Waters Denies Zuckerberg’s Request to Use Song in Ad:The WrapDid Donald Trump Wear His Pants Backwards?

Fear a ‘dead cat bounce’? I’d avoid this dirt-cheap FTSE 250 stock

first_img See all posts by Paul Summers Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” A ‘dead cat bounce’ can be defined as a temporary recovery in share prices before another swift bout of heavy selling takes place. Whether that’s what we’re seeing in the markets right now is, of course, anyone’s guess.Should markets quickly give up the positive momentum seen over the last couple of days, however, there’s one stock I definitely won’t be interested in buying, regardless of how cheap it becomes.  5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Off-screen dramaSince a trip to the movies involves sitting for hours in an enclosed space with popcorn-munching strangers, it’s no surprise the share price of cinema operator Cineworld (LSE: CINE) has been hit hard following the coronavirus outbreak. Yesterday, the stock closed at 140p — roughly 20% less than a month ago.It’s certainly possible things could get worse before they get better. A decision by the UK government to restrict ‘public gatherings’ in the event of a huge rise in those testing positive would be extremely negative for the company. Closing cinemas would surely be required, as it was in China.  Even if it doesn’t come to this, the ongoing disruption to the cinematic calendar is likely to impact earnings in the short term. Yesterday, it was announced the release date for the new James Bond film (No Time to Die) has now been put back from April to November. A couple of weeks ago, filming of the latest Mission Impossible installment was brought to an abrupt halt in Italy.Temporary or otherwise, I’d still be reluctant to snap up Cineworld’s shares for another three reasons.Loaded with debtFirst, the amount of debt the company now carries as a result of its decision to buy US operator Regal and Canadian business Cineplex remains significantly more than the current value of Cineworld itself! Bar a few exceptions, I’m not a fan of debt-laden companies at the best of times, let alone when markets are this fragile. Second, the popularity of streaming services, such as Netflix and Amazon Prime, shows no signs of falling (and is likely to soar if we’re all forced into self-isolation).  The arrival of Disney’s ‘Plus’ offering later this month will mean yet more competition for consumers’ eyeballs. Monthly subscriptions costing far less than a single trip to the cinema and offering a huge variety of content leave the FTSE 250 company looking very vulnerable, at least in my opinion.Third — and arguably as a result everything mentioned so far — Cineworld continues to attract significant attention from short sellers (those who bet on a company’s share price falling). Right now, it’s the third most shorted stock on the London Stock Exchange, according to shorttracker.co.uk.Highly-researched short sellers aren’t always right, but anyone owning stocks they target must be very sure of their reasons for staying positive. Worth a punt?Full-year numbers from Cineworld are expected on 12 March. Since these will relate to trading in 2019 only, it’s inevitable investors will be more focused on comments from management regarding the company’s outlook, in light of the coronavirus crisis.At a little less than six times forecast earnings, you might argue a lot of negativity is already priced in. With everything so up in the air, however, I think Cineworld looks a classic value trap. Image source: Getty Images. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

Why this battered FTSE 250 share interests me right now

first_img FTSE 250 constituent easyJet (LSE:EZJ) has seen two major developments in recent days and weeks. As a result, I’m wondering whether EZJ is a worthy investment candidate today.Make no mistake, easyJet is under heavy pressure. With government travel restrictions in place and ever changing, travel operators have seen operations affected. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…FTSE 250 stalwartThe low-cost airline group covers over 1,000 routes across Europe and beyond, but has seen its usual level of demand decimated due to the pandemic. The first interesting development is that of a substantial insider share purchase. According to a filing by EZJ on 4 August, deputy chairman Charles Gurassa purchased over 90,000 shares at a price just over 550p per share. This equates to almost £500,000 in total. Gurassa is a seasoned travel sector insider who’s seen the industry during good times and bad. Prior to his current role with EZJ, he served as CEO of Thomson Travel Group. Gurassa also had stints at TUI Northern Europe and British Airways. A substantial trade by such an insider suggests confidence in EZJ’s investment viability moving forward.And the second development? Well, I wasn’t surprised when the firm said it would be closing three of its bases in the UK. This would result in the loss of close to 700 jobs as the pandemic continues to squeeze the travel industry. Back in May, EZJ had already said it would need to axe 4,500 jobs across Europe to prepare for a smaller travel market.Recent performanceWhen the market crashed and the FTSE was decimated, EZJ lost close to 70% of its value. Its share price tumbled from over 1,550p per share, down to its lowest point of 475p. EZJ is currently trading at close to 550p, which is still very low. I feel this cheap price could be viewed as an opportunity.Back at the beginning of August EZJ released a Q3 trading update. Although the figures weren’t expected to make great reading, for me they were even worse. It confirmed that the number of flights, aircrafts in operation and passengers flown were down by over 96% compared to the same period last year. Revenue was down by over 99% compared to the same period too. The only silver lining I saw in the update was the massively reduced costs as most of EZJ’s fleet was grounded.There’s a huge amount of uncertainty associated with Covid-19 and UK shares, and the travel industry has been one of the hardest hit. But these recent developments at EZJ tell contradictory stories: weak results and a director confident enough to commit substantial cash to a bet that the firm can bounce back. easyJet is a share I’m interested in as people will be itching to get away on holiday in the months and years ahead.VerdictThat being said, I wouldn’t rush to buy the shares just yet. Although EZJ’s share price is dirt-cheap in my opinion, the travel sector represents too much of a risk. Will customer demand ever reach pre-Covid levels? The fact that fuel costs are rising doesn’t help matters either. There are better FTSE shares out there in my opinion. I always point towards stocks with defensive qualities during a market crash. Unfortunately in the current market downturn, EZJ lacks these qualities, in my opinion.  Why this battered FTSE 250 share interests me right now Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Jabran Khan | Tuesday, 18th August, 2020 | More on: EZJ Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you.

A popular FTSE 100 stock: would I buy shares in this company today?

first_img Enter Your Email Address Renowned stock-picker Mark Rogers and his analyst team at The Motley Fool UK have named 6 shares that they believe UK investors should consider buying NOW.So if you’re looking for more stock ideas to try and best position your portfolio today, then it might be a good day for you. Because we’re offering a full 33% off your first year of membership to our flagship share-tipping service, backed by our ‘no quibbles’ 30-day subscription fee refund guarantee. Image source: Getty Images. Group revenue in Q3 rose 22.5% and the company volunteered to pay its business rates in FY21, costing around £80m. And it also awarded around 30,000 store and distribution colleagues an extra week’s wages in recognition of their considerable efforts. The FTSE 100 company paid out dividends of £500m in 2020, including a special dividend so shareholders could reap the benefits from its successful year.The group expects FY21 group adjusted 2021 earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, and amortisation (EBITDA) to be within the range of £540m to £570m. Analyst estimates pitch it at £544m. Results are due at the end of March.Lacking an online presenceI find it strange and somewhat random that B&M has a website filled with products to browse but not to buy. However, it has another website for sheds and garden storage that can be purchased online.I imagine it would be a lot more profitable with an online presence, from which we could purchase its regular products. However, it seems its low prices mean margins are tight. Therefore, there’s little wiggle room for the additional expense created by home delivery. The larger products probably come with wider margins and are more cost effective to deliver.Operating physical stores means it also faces rising business rates and wages. And it somewhat depends on the luck of the draw when it comes to its locations. Some will naturally be more successful than others.I don’t plan on buying shares of B&M as it’s quite an expensive FTSE 100 stock, and there are cheaper stocks I prefer. But I think it operates a good business model and I can see why many investors would consider it a sensible addition to a long-term Stocks and Shares ISA.

The high-calibre small-cap stock flying under the City’s radar Adventurous investors like you won’t want to miss out on what could be a truly astonishing opportunity…You see, over the past three years, this AIM-listed company has been quietly powering ahead… rewarding its shareholders with generous share price growth thanks to a carefully orchestrated ‘buy and build’ strategy.And with a first-class management team at the helm, a proven, well-executed business model, plus market-leading positions in high-margin, niche products… our analysts believe there’s still plenty more potential growth in the pipeline.Here’s your chance to discover exactly what has got our Motley Fool UK investment team all hot-under-the-collar about this tiny £350+ million enterprise… inside a specially prepared free investment report.But here’s the really exciting part… right now, we believe many UK investors have quite simply never heard of this company before! FTSE 100 company B&M European Value Retail (LSE:BME) operates physical stores filled with a massive range of merchandise from stationery to garden furniture, hot tubs, and DIY goods. Its unique selling point is simply that its products are very cheap. It sells quality branded goods, but at knock-down prices and consumers can’t get enough.A FTSE 100 stock showing resilienceWhile retail has suffered in the pandemic’s wake, this type of business model is proving resilient. People love a bargain, and with little in the way of services and entertainment on offer, consumers are treating themselves to products instead. The group has not been badly affected by UK lockdowns because it has been allowed to remain open. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…B&M now operates 673 UK stores and is on track to open up to 45 new stores during this financial year. It has a price-to-earnings ratio (P/E) of 60, earnings per share (EPS) are 9p, and its dividend yield is 1.5%. The B&M share price has risen over 50% in a year and the company has a market cap of £5.4bn. It’s clearly an expensive stock, but the company remains profitable with clear potential for further growth. That’s very attractive when UK retail is on a downward trend.center_img See all posts by Kirsteen Mackay Click here to claim your copy of this special investment report — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top Small-Cap Stock… free of charge!

Du Preez explains thought process after dominating prop in tip tackle that went wrong

first_imgWednesday Apr 21, 2021 Du Preez explains thought process after dominating prop in tip tackle that went wrong Sale Sharks flyhalf Robert Du Preez was red carded for a dangerous tackle against Gloucester this past weekend, leading to a citing and subsequent suspension. Last night he faced an independent disciplinary panel to learn his fate. ADVERTISEMENTDu Preez, formerly of the Sharks in Durban, got in a good position to effect a dominant tackle but unfortunately tipped big prop Val Rapava-Ruskin, resulting in the Gloucester front rower landing badly with his face in the turf.Referee Adam Leal had little option but to issue a straight red card and Sale were left to play the remaining 57 minutes or so with just 14 men.The tip tackle contravened World Rugby Law 9.18 and after accepting the charge, Du Preez was given a three-week suspension.In an articulate latter, he explained his view of the incident, stating that he put a lot of force in the tackle but didn’t expect to be so dominant.“The incident itself was entirely unintentional and I certainly did not intend to cause any harm to Val,” he explained.“I saw Val had stolen the ball at the breakdown and had a significant run up before I could get in a position to tackle him. I was also aware of his size and knew I would need to tackle him as hard as I could in order to attempt to bring him down. As I engaged in the tackle I was genuinely surprised at how easily I was able to put force through him.ADVERTISEMENT“Unfortunately as I lifted his legs in the tackle I wasn’t able to control the balance of the tackle and his legs went above the horizontal. I recognised I wouldn’t be able to bring him down safely so I bailed out of the tackle in an attempt to not drive him into the ground.“I immediately apologised to Val following the incident and sought him out again after being shown the red on the pitch to issue a further apology.”The capped Springbok will miss Gallagher Premiership Rugby fixtures against Worcester Warriors, Leicester Tigers and Bath.You can see the incident from other angles in the highlights belowADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 8 WEEKS AGO Prop suspended for 3 weeks after flying shoulder… 8 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Aaron Smith’s captain’s referral turned… 9 WEEKS AGO WATCH: 19-year-old is barely a speed bump… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

It’s time for a GLOBAL MAY DAY STRIKE

first_imgWorkers World Party on why the time has comeThe May Day general strike should raise all the demands of the movements of the workers and oppressed against all the mounting attacks of capitalism. These include, for example, demands against union busting and those that speak to the struggle of low-wage workers, including the demand for a global minimum wage.However, the May Day global general strike’s sharpest focus must be against all that Trump has come to represent — racism, white supremacy, neofascism, Islamophobia, attacks on immigrants, attacks on women and LGBTQ people, and a drive toward imperialist war. What’s more, the May Day global strike must be against the whole system of capitalism and imperialism and for socialism. Forging a united front among the most militant and revolutionary forces can help this happen.Can it be done?Whether or not the masses are willing to join such a global general strike at this moment is a question that can only be answered if there exist, on the part of enough forces, the will and commitment to fight for it.  What is beyond question is the objective political necessity of a global mobilization of the masses on a new level of militancy and higher political level. The global general strike, more than an end in itself, should mark the beginning of a wider, escalating struggle of the workers and the oppressed across the planet, whose ultimate goal must be nothing less than socialist revolution.Why a global general strike?While many struggles tend to have a local character, it is no longer possible for the workers and the oppressed to conduct the struggle against neofascism, capitalism and imperialism on a solely local basis. The changes in global capitalism have made it both necessary and far more possible for the struggle to be waged on a globally coordinated scale.The masses can ‘shut it down!’Militants have wisely expanded the conception of the general strike. The capacity of organized workers to leave work, wherever they can, remains a critical part of a strike.  Today, however, more advanced conceptions of the general strike allow for the wider participation of the masses no matter if they are in unions, have a job or, like so many workers, are forced to take low-wage, part-time or temporary jobs.  Students and youths all over the world are walking out of schools. Women are now planning a March 8 global strike, reportedly in 30 countries. The masses have discovered that by their numbers and militancy, they can bring much of society and the economy to a halt or “Shut It Down!”Organize people’s assemblies to build for a May Day global general strikeWe believe that convening local people’s assemblies around the world to help prepare for a May Day global general strike is an organizing tactic that should be used widely. Such assemblies can take many forms, including people’s and workers’ assemblies, women’s assemblies, LGBTQ assemblies, student and youth assemblies, etc. These assemblies could facilitate bringing tens of thousands of organizers into general strike-building, as well as providing the opportunity for militants and activists to issue their own calls for the general strike that reflect local demands, as well as the demands of diverse sections of the workers and oppressed.First task: Defend the oppressedIn building for a global May Day, it’s important to understand that the first need is to rally to the political and physical defense of the most oppressed  who are the first targets of Trump. Some on the left have mistakenly dismissed the movements for Black Lives Matter, immigrants and Muslims, Latinx and Indigenous rights, which Standing Rock represents, and all the struggles of the most oppressed, including women, LGBTQ communities and people with disabilities, as “identity politics.”This mistake can only serve to further marginalize and demonize the most oppressed sections of the working class, who are already the first targets of neofascism. This mistake also ruptures the necessary solidarity between the workers and the oppressed. When we talk about the working class, we are talking about the oppressed. This is why the workers’ movement changed the slogan “Workers of the world unite” to “Workers and oppressed peoples of the world unite.” Our view is that it is the oppressed who are in the leadership of the entire working class.Trump does not represent the beginning of attacks on the oppressed.  Capitalism’s war on the oppressed has been going on for a long time. Trump has only unmasked it.As part of the task of defending the oppressed, we advocate for the establishment of local defense committees whose first priority is to defend the oppressed against attacks from both the state and reactionary, white- supremacist and neofascist elements.Trumpism is a desperate attempt to save capitalism by dividing the workers and oppressed The election of billionaire, white supremacist and neofascist Donald Trump in the United States, together with the ascendency of neofascists in other parts of the world, has opened up a new phase of the world struggle between global capitalism and imperialism and the workers and the oppressed. The crisis that produced Trump is the crisis of a dying capitalist system. The goal of Trump and his neofascist, global counterparts is to divert the global uprising against a dying capitalist system into a global war against the most oppressed by destroying the revolutionary objective of solidarity between the workers and the oppressed.Capitalist parties cannot lead the fight against TrumpWe must not allow the liberal (actually neoliberal) wing of the imperialist ruling class, represented by the Democratic Party in the U.S. and by pro-capitalist, social-democratic parties elsewhere, to lead the struggle against Trumpism. This camp of the global capitalist class has been the main servants of capitalism, charged with preventing the working class from becoming independent of capitalist political parties.  This camp of world imperialism has thrown the entire working class under the bus, paving the way for the Trumps and Le Pens of the world.We welcome the mass protests against Trump. It is a sign that millions are becoming radicalized. The protest movement must not be usurped by any capitalist party, but instead channeled toward independent revolutionary resistance and uprising. It is up to the workers and the oppressed of the planet, including all genuinely independent progressive forces, to commence now the final struggle to rid humanity of the malignancy of capitalism once and for all.A revolutionary united front against neofascism, racism, war, capitalism and imperialist warThis crisis has opened the biggest opportunity for a regroupment of the revolutionary, anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist left on a global scale in a lifetime. We appeal to all anti-capitalist forces — whether communist, socialist, anarchist, etc., and especially those belonging to oppressed peoples, nations, communities, the labor movement and the working class — to embark on a new road to a global, revolutionary, united front.Among other things, such a revolutionary front would be an ally of the militant youth, who all too often have come to view most of the left as wanting to put a brake on their militancy.It is not necessary for anyone to give up their principled political differences in order to forge a revolutionary united front. However, especially now, anti-capitalist forces cannot allow differences to become a barrier to forging such a front. We are not opposed to a broader front on a temporary basis. Genuine revolutionaries must set aside sectarian habits. We also understand the need for different tactics that address the whole working class and its many different layers of political consciousness.To repeat, we understand the need to be able to work with broader forces on a temporary basis. If, however, revolutionaries are not able to forge a higher level of unity, it will only make it easier for the Democratic Party and other pro-capitalist parties to resuscitate themselves by posing as the opponents of Trump.On to the May Day Global General Strike!  Shut It Down!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Two Mile Inn Hotel to close

first_imgTHE Two Mile Inn Hotel is to close its doors on September 9, with a warning from Michael Vaughan, chairman of the Irish Hotel Federation, that others in the region could suffer a similar fate.The Two Mile Inn, originally built by the late Tom Ryan, was later taken over by Brendan Dunne, after Mr Ryan developed the nearby Limerick Inn, now the Radisson.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up It had in its time been one of the most successful hotels in the Limerick-Clare area, hosting many major events, including Limerick area finals of the Rose of Tralee. It was also hugely popular with tour operators.A staff member confirmed to the Limerick Post that closure was set for September 9.The Two Mile Inn was an Ennis Road landmark and its pyramid top won architectural recognition.Limerick is still one of the most “over hoteled” in the region and needs a comprehensive plan for survival, warns Clare’s Michael Vaughan, chairman of the Irish Hotel Federation (IHF).The knock-on effects of the decision taken by Bank of Scotland to quit Ireland were already being felt, said Mr Vaughan, whose views have been supported by a Limerick hotelier, who claims that up to 150 hotels have substantial loans with Bank of Scotland and are dependant on them for survival.The Two Mile Inn closure is not related to the decision taken by Bank of Scotland.The local hotelier, who asked not to be identified, pointed out that hotels had mushroomed in the region in the Celtic Tiger years, and in the main were driven by investors in search of generous tax breaks.Mr Vaughan revealed that the bank holds 40% of loans for newly built hotels.“This is a worrying time for the sector as no details of the wind down have been released.“The Limerick/Shannon area is well exposed to loans with the bank. Hotels rely on long term relationships with banks as they often wait 15 to 20 years for return on investments.“In the short term this change will see ripple effects because, as well as long term loans, Bank of Scotland provide working capital, i.e. upfront cash for the day-to-day running of the business”.Mr Vaughan also said that the bank had provided overdrafts to help hotels survive the quieter winter months.“These overdrafts are generally cleared by May or June but in recent years hotels often don’t manage to clear them and would look to Bank of Scotland to help out.“No other banks will touch the sector so now we have no where to turn”.

Pic: Ken ColemanSINN Fein councillor Séighin Ó Ceallaigh is calling on the Council to produce ‘magic money’ from the same pot that saw a statue erected to Terry Wogan in the city to honour Cranberries singer Dolores O’Riordan.The City East representative, who is from O’Riordan’s native Ballybricken, had previously made calls for the local authority to reveal the source of the money used to build the statue for the late Terry Wogan, which was unveiled at Poorman’s Kilkee last June.Ó Ceallaigh said “the same magic money that appeared to build the Terry Wogan statue must now re-appear to honour Dolores O’Riordan”.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “I have no problem with the statue to Terry Wogan, only the fact it doesn’t look like Terry Wogan. But what I do have a problem with is that councillors were shown no designs, and did not give approval for money to be spent on the statue. I have asked many times where the money came from, and nobody seems to want to answer that question,” he claimed.“So, I have come to the conclusion that this is magic money. Sure it would hardly be the case that taxpayers’ money was used to build a statue that had no council approval, and had no accountability. So now that we have seen the untimely passing of such a worldwide inspiration from my own parish of Ballybricken, I think the magic money needs to appear again.”Ó Ceallaigh takes the view that the Council must remember the Cranberries frontwoman; in the same way it has remembered other Limerick celebrities who have died.“I am not saying whether it should be for a statue or for a concert or for a music festival, all I’m saying is that Dolores O’Riordan needs to be remembered by the council. I would appeal again for public accountability in terms of money spent, and would welcome any clarifications which may come in the near future.”Responding to Cllr Ó Ceallaigh’s comments this week, a spokesman for the Council said: “As part of the actions to deliver the Limerick Cultural Strategy, a Public Art Policy for Limerick City and County Council is being developed. This policy will take on board the interrelationship between the artist and the artwork, the context (location – site, social, geographical aspects) and the public.“There is a need to pursue a co-ordinated policy on public art that identifies and brings together the resources available with Limerick City and County Council to create a vision for a public art programme with the clear artistic aims and objectives and a clear commissioning process. All future public art will be developed in line with this policy.”by Alan [email protected]last_img read more
