Samaritans Longest Night

On Monday, 21st December we’re asking businesses to illuminate green in support of Samaritans.

Longest Night 2020 is a day where Samaritan volunteers raise awareness of the emotional support services available to those in need.

This year, in such extraordinary times, we need your help. By going green you’ll help raise awareness of Samaritans and the wonderful service our volunteers provide 24/7 365 days per year.

For the past few years we have marked this night to show people that we are there for them during their darkest hours, especially during the Christmas period. We have previously had candlelight vigils around Waterford and engaged with people by handing out awareness materials.

Waterford City and County Council are lighting up 35 The Mall, Waterford and the Devonshire Bridge in Dungarvan.

Managing the safety risks of employee intoxicant use (defined as drugs and alcohol)

Part 1 will take place for 3 hours on Thursday 28th January from 10am to 1 pm and Part 2 will take place on Thursday 4th February from 10am to 1pm.

Compliance – Workers legal responsibility

Under Section 13(1) b the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 all employees must ensure that   they are not under the influence of an intoxicant (defined as drugs and alcohol) to the extent that he or she is in such a state as to endanger his or her own safety, health or welfare at work or that of any other person. Compliance – Employers legal responsibility
Information given by the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) is that from a health and safety perspective, employers need to be confident that employees are not a risk to themselves or others. If managers perceive that there is a risk action should be taken to remove the employee from the risk.

Those who drive company vehicles or their own car, the so called 'grey fleet drivers' are now considered high risk to their own personal safety and that of other road users.

Presenter: Maurice Quinlan, Director EAP Institute, Ireland

Theatre Royal Omega3

Omega Three Live From Your Living Room

Omega Three’s set-list has been described as ‘country blues meets folk meets jazz’. The Munster Express’s Liam Murphy said ‘This is a band with musical heft’. Liam went on to describe an Omega Three gig as ‘Easy listening to a quartet of seasoned musicians fronted by Francie White, who has an amazing country blues voice, with the sort of 'chops' that reminded me fondly of George Melly.

Along with Francie, Bass player Mickey Dower and the two Gerrys, Power on guitar and Madden on Mandolin are Omega Three.

Friday 4th December

Starts @ 8 p.m. Tickets: €10 from Box Office,051 874 402 or

Theatre Royal Happy Prince


The Happy Prince and The Selfish Giant are probably the best loved and most enduringly popular of all Oscar Wilde’s stories. The former is the bittersweet tale of a gregarious swallow who befriends a melancholy statue while en route to Egypt. The bird helps the Prince to alleviate the suffering of his poor citizens and in doing so learns profound truths about the nature of love and suffering. Michael James Ford’s highly energised and physical performance has been acclaimed as a virtuoso piece of storytelling and has travelled widely. 

It is now paired with a new production of The Selfish Giant devised and performed by well-known actress Bairbre Ni Chaoimh and Michael James Ford and three endearing puppet children, created by master puppeteer, Martin Cahill. Together they inhabit Wilde’s wonderful fairytale in which a grumpy giant is changed forever through the innocence and friendship of children. 

Both stories are underscored with haunting live violin music arranged and performed by Philip Dodd and adapted from the orchestral works of Sergei Prokofiev and Camille Saint-Saëns. 

Sunday 6th December 

Starts @ 3 p.m. Tickets: €10 from Box Office,051 874 402 or
