NewsHealthPoliticsCall for free sanitary products in Council buildingsBy Alan Jacques – November 26, 2019 242 Previous articleLynch announced as Independent Director of the Federation of Irish SportNext articleRestoration of Kilmallock West Wall shortlisted for three awards Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Advertisement Facebook Email WhatsApp Print Twitter Cllr Elisa O’Donovan, Social Democrats. Photo: Cian ReinhardtSOCIAL Democrats councillor Elisa O’Donovan has called on the local authority to explore the provision of free sanitary products in all Limerick Council buildings, including community centres, swimming pools and libraries.At Monday’s meeting of the local authority, the City West representative said that women have an average of 507 periods in their menstrual lifetime at a cost of around €10,000 per person.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Cllr O’Donovan also explained that 50 per cent of menstruating people aged 12 to 19 say they have experienced issues in paying for sanitary products.“The monthly burden of purchasing sanitary products falls on half of the Limerick population and is an issue of both equality and dignity. It is easy to understand why period poverty is a very real problem issue for low-income households and young people in our city and county,” she commented.“I am calling on Limerick Council to provide a range of free, adequate, safe and suitable sanitary products to be distributed through all public buildings. To start off with this would be in Council-owned buildings, swimming pools, libraries and community centres so as to tackle period poverty and de-stigmatise and normalise menstruation. I urge that we undergo a pilot project for this to start on International Women’s Day next year.”Sinn Féin councillor Sharon Benson, who supported the motion, called for an amendment to be made to include emergency accommodation and homeless shelters.Labour Party councillor Conor Sheehan pointed out that Limerick TD Jan O’Sullivan has done a lot of work on this issue at national level.Fianna Fáil councillor Eddie Ryan wanted to know how the proposal would be funded.“We’ve already had our budget,” he pointed out.Cllr Kevin Sheahan (FF) was also keen to comment on the matter.“I have no problem with this. It shows a maturing process to be thinking this way. I welcome that,” he said.A Council spokesman explained that the issue of the provision of free sanitary products in public buildings was debated in the Oireachtas earlier this year when the Government committed to bringing forward a series of measures to address the matter.“The Council will proceed with implementing the outcome of this process upon its completion at national level,” he said.

Press Association Russell, competing in the S12 class, beat her own world record by 1.5 seconds as she touched the wall in 1 minute 6.15 seconds to win gold in a faster time than any qualification for the IPC Swimming World Championships. Firth, in the S14 class, took two seconds off the previous standard to finish in 1:04.70 to secure silver. Hannah Russell and Bethany Firth both set new world records in their classes in the 100 metres backstroke at the British Para-Swimming International Meet in Glasgow on Saturday. Russell said: “I wanted to swim quicker than my PB or to deliver a PB but to be quite honest I felt strong in my warm up so I was hoping for a performance like that and to have Bethany beside me was great. We broke the world record together.” Firth added: “I’m really happy with all of my swims but I really don’t think that I would have been able to swim that if Hannah Russell hadn’t been beside me breaking her world record as well. “The Backstroke is one that is special to my heart I really enjoy swimming it so I am so glad to have gone and done that there. “I really wasn’t expecting that. It was a massive PB for me and I was feeling a bit sluggish this morning after all the races but my coach really picked me up and told me to just go for it and with Hannah swimming beside me it really helped.” Chloe Davies (S14) won bronze after touching in 1:08.05.
