Time For A Recycling Rebate? – A great many cities across Europe have some form of recycling rebate – often as low as 5cents – for plastic and glass bottles which are returned. Is it time that some Irish councils looked at doing similar? I think so: http://catherinenoone.ie/2015/02/10/recycling-rebate-dublin/

Regional Action Plan For Jobs – This week I welcomed Minister Bruton on today’s launch of the government’s new Regional Action Plan for Jobs. Many have argued that the economic recovery is a Dublin-only phenomenon which is exactly we need this new strategy – http://catherinenoone.ie/2015/02/11/regional-action-plan-for-jobs/
