Love In The Wild is a new play written by Lisa Walsh, and opens next month at the Axis theatre in Ballymun. Lisa is a member of Fórsa and a social worker in child protection services. We met last week to talk about her inspiration for the play, its development from page to stage, and her desire to challenge the stigma of addiction.
Fórsa has called on the Government to allocate funds to hire up to 125 additional driver testers to deal with an inevitable surge in demand for driving tests on foot of proposed new sanctions on car owners who allow their vehicles to be used by unaccompanied learner drivers.
The Public Service Pay Commission (PSPC) says it has received a large number of submissions from unions on the issue of civil and public service recruitment and retention issues. These include submissions from Fórsa on problems in the civil service and among health and social care professionals.
