Limerick Senator has beef with meat industry RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Print Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Facebook TAGSMinister for Finance Michael NoonanpoliticsRichard Boyd BarrettWealth taxWillie O’Dea TD Enterprise Support Grant should include older self-employed people WhatsApp FINANCE Minister Michael Noonan has ruled out the introduction of a wealth tax, claiming that families with an income of more than €100,000 a year are struggling to make ends meet.Responding to People Before Profit TD Richard Boyd Barrett’s calls to introduce a wealth tax on incomes over €100,000, the Limerick Minister said households with such an income were not wealthy.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Speaking in the Dáil last week Minister Noonan added: “They’re barely getting the kids up in the morning and out to school, paying the bills, paying the mortgage, and keeping the car on the road. And if you think a gross income for a couple at €100,000 is wealth, you’re not meeting the real people.”However, Limerick Fianna Fáil TD Willie O’Dea noted that families earning €100,000 a year are “a hell of a lot more wealthy than families with an income of €20,000, who the Government has hit repeatedly”.He told Limerick Post: “If you take a young person aged 25 or 26, before the payments were cut their total income was about €9,500 a year, now, depending on their age category it’s gone underneath that.“Let’s face it, everything is relative, but people on over €100,000 have suffered a lot less under this Government than people earning a lot less. All independent commentators have said that our budgets are regressive and that they are taking more from the poor than from the wealthy.” Advertisement Linkedin Previous articleWriters on the lookout for Limerick’s oldest ladyNext articleUL working to develop safer structures John Keoghhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Twitter Email NewsFamilies on €100 000 are “struggling”By John Keogh – July 11, 2014 836 Jenny Blake | #WeAreLimerick episode 46 Restart Grant Plus will help more Limerick businesses to reopen Rape Crisis welcomes publication of O’Malley report

Villa were unable to stop United clinching the title with a 3-0 win last Monday, a result that left Lambert’s side only three points above the relegation zone having played a game more than 18th-placed Wigan. But it was only a second defeat in their last six matches and a haul of 10 points during that run has generated some much-needed optimism. An extra incentive for Villa is the knowledge that victory on Monday will draw the club level with Sunderland, who have pulled themselves away from the bottom three. Lambert said: “We have to win. The next four games are massive games but we also know if we win on Monday then you pull Sunderland right back in as well.” Press Association The Scot went on: “There’s only three points in it. We’re at home. We’d rather be at home than going away, that’s for sure. You’ll have the crowd behind you, you’ll have everything behind you. “The thing for myself is we’re playing well enough, we’re creating chances. It would be different if I was going into that game and we weren’t playing well or creating, then it becomes a big thing.” All Villa’s remaining games are likely to be huge for both teams, with Norwich, who are not yet out of danger, and Champions League-chasing Chelsea to come before a potentially decisive final-day clash with Wigan at the DW Stadium. Last Monday was arguably a less than ideal time to visit Old Trafford but Lambert had no complaints, his only regret being their failure to prevent United scoring three times inside 33 minutes. The Scot said: “I don’t think it mattered when we went there or what happened between Tottenham and Manchester City. It was always going to be tough, regardless of what the occasion was going to be. “I think the only difference was the crowd came with that vibrancy knowing that if they could beat us then (they would win the title), that gave them a lift, but it was always going to be tough going there. We were up against the champions elect. One thing going to Old Trafford is you have to try to stay in the game as long as you can and try and create chances. “We created chances to score, it never materialised, but sometimes you have to hold your hand up – the second goal was fabulous, you could have had three goalkeepers in there and they wouldn’t have saved that.” Paul Lambert is taking encouragement from Aston Villa’s showing against Manchester United as they prepare for Monday’s crunch Barclays Premier League clash with Sunderland.
