GOVERNMENT reassurance is now needed over €18 million in funding for two State-run Limerick nursing homes.Fianna Fáil councillor James Collins warned that any shortfall in the €14.95 million funding approved for St Camillus’ Community Hospital in the city and the €3.09 million approved for St Ita’s in Newcastle West will affect more than 160 families who have elderly relatives in these State-run nursing homes.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Huge cost overruns in the Government plan to upgrade State-run nursing homes show the programme which was estimated to cost €385 million is now likely to cost €700 million. I’m concerned that St Camillus’ Community Hospital in the city and St Ita’s in Newcastle West could be caught up in this latest episode of cost overruns on major projects,” Cllr Collins said.Limerick Metropolitan District Cathaoirleach James Collins.Photo: Cian Reinhardt“The overall budget for nursing home improvements nationwide is 81 per cent over budget. We need clarity from the Department of Health and the HSE that St Camillus’ Community Hospital and St Ita’s will not be downgraded or delayed in any way. A new unit for 20 elderly residents at St Ita’s has already been delayed until 2021.“This Government has a well-earned reputation for mismanaging public funds and we now know that the €385 million plan to upgrade 90 State-run nursing homes is 80 per cent over budget and now likely to cost €700 million,” he said.There was no response from the Department of Health at the time of going to print.

Andy Mossey and Steph Whatton know how to road trip. The couple does it for a living. Mossey and Whatton are a traveling trainer team for Subaru and Leave No Trace, driving across the Eastern U.S., educating schools, camps, and the general public about Leave No Trace principles. They live year round in an Outback and spent 250 nights camping last year. “The best part of living in your car, is you have everything you need to adventure all the time,” says Mossey. “If we have a couple of hours of free time, and we’re in a spot with incredible climbing or trail running, we’re ready to go.” After a year on the road, Mossey and Whatton have dialed in their road trip gear and system. Here, they outline their favorite pieces of road trip gear.Taxa TigerMoth ($12,900)AM: We recently put a trailer on the Subaru. It only weighs 900 pounds, but has a queen sized bed and a pull out kitchen. There’s tons of storage room…it’s amazing. It’s designed to give you every piece of living equipment, as if you’re living in a basecamp.Big Agnes Double Z ($110)SW: I couldn’t do this job without that thing. Getting a good night’s sleep is crucial, and this insulated sleeping pad is more comfortable than the mattress in my last apartment.Thule Sonic XL ($659)AM: This roof box is our gear closet. It has a super rigid design, with tons of room for all of our climbing gear. Says Whatton, “It’s so sturdy, and unbelievably durable for all weather conditions. I don’t know what we’d do without it.”ENO Hammock ($60)SW: We have our ENOs with us at all times—a DoubleNest and a SingleNest. I really like the new strap system, the Helios, made from Dyneema. They’re really lightweight but also user friendly. The SingleNest is key if we want to have our own space. We’re together all the time, so sometimes that’s nice.Camp Chef Everest Stove ($125)AM: We’re big foodies, making food every day, twice a day. It’s a two-burner stove that’s incredibly reliable You can cook anything on this stove. Our go-to meal is vegetable stir fry, with curry rice.Rinse Kit ($90)This little tub of sanitation holds and pressurizes two gallons of water so you can get clean and hit the town immediately after that trail run, ride or climb.Mazama Sidestream Hydration Pack ($39) The Sidestream provides a smooth, bounce-free run and an easy, one-handed drink motion that doesn’t interrupt your stride. Just pull the hose to your mouth and drink.SOL Urban Survivor Kit ($80)This grab-and-go emergency backpack filled with all the necessary essentials to survive when a disaster strikes, including water, food, survival tools, and first aid.Yakima Streamline $199-towers, $119-crossbarsYakima reinvented rack Streamline features towers that can adjust to most car shapes, and new cross bars that are more aerodynamic, but also stronger than their predecessors.
