Observer Week in Review: 3-7 October 2011

Alleged site of class rep training.

Maynooth News:

  • Maynooth news this week has been dominated by the revelation that the SU will spend in the region of €5000 on a class rep training junket in an as yet unnamed hotel. Shane and Paudi covered the revelation here.
  • Boards.ie has been the source of much of the opposition to this junket. See the thread here.
  • A protest against the junket has been organised for Monday. See the event page on Facebook here
  • Student Eoin Griffin sent us an open letter to the SU addressing his own concerns about the junket here.
  • SU President sent us his response on Saturday. Read that here

 

National News:

  • The week started off with Vincent Browne hosting TV3’s Big Presidential Debate. Dave wrote a review of it here.
  • In other Presidential news, Dana is evidently going to save us all from Europe by fucking off to the States.
  • ….and Sean Gallagher, one of only two candidates left intact by Vincent Browne, may have landed himself in it
  • Latest polling reflects the implosion of David Norris.
  • A new poll shows Sinn Féin to be the second most popular political party in Ireland
