Debt Advice Meeting


The Insolvency Service of Ireland, the independent government body set up to help tackle problem debt is hosting free debt advice meetings in the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel on Saturday, 8th October from 10am-4pm.


On the day a selection of Personal Insolvency Practitioners and Approved Intermediaries - the qualified debt experts regulated by the ISI - will hold free one-to-one, private, meetings with people who are in serious financial difficulty to discuss their financial circumstances and debt solution options. There is a debt solution for every situation. Anyone wishing to register for a meeting at this event can do so by clicking here, free text ISI EVENT to 50015 for a callback or phone the ISI's information line on 076 106 4200. Alternatively they can contact one of the Personal Insolvency Practitioners listed below.


The ISI’s solutions are unique in that:

  • a Personal  Insolvency Practitioner will deal with all of a person’s creditors to work out a long-term solution to their debt problems and while this is happening, the person will get a Protective Certificate which means that  their creditors cannot contact them.  Informal solutions being offered by lenders or debt advisors that are not regulated by the ISI cannot offer this protection.
  • the  ISI's solutions are legally binding. This means the terms cannot be changed without the agreement of both parties so there will be no surprise changes or amendments to the terms along the way.
  • At the end of a solution, the person will be solvent.

Waterford PARKing Day


PARKing Day Waterford 1


What is PARKing Day?

  • PARKing Day is an annual, worldwide, open sourceexperiment in reclaiming public space.
  • It is a simple and fun concept where on streets car parking spaces in cities around the world are transformed into mini imaginative public spaces for everyone to enjoy for one day.
  • PARK(ing) Day is a way to create awareness, to engage with the public, promote sustainability, innovation and commerciality in the city.


How it all started

  • The original parklet was designed by Rebar in San Francisco in 2005 when a single metered parking space was transformed into a mini park.
  • They simply paid the meter and instead of parking a car rolled out grass, set up a bench and a tree, transforming the carpark into a mini park! It has since become a worldwide phenomenon.


Waterford’s first ever PARKing Day!

  • PARKing Day is coming to Waterford for the first time this coming September. The event is supported by Waterford City & County Council and is being run as part of European Mobility Week.
  • On the 17th of September 2016 ten to fifteen car parking spaces througout the city will be transformed by artists, designers, architects, students and locals into mini pop up public spaces.
  • It is a non-profit event organised and run by Aislinn Cunningham and Sorca Duffy.
  • The PARKing Day event hopes to bring together a diversity of groups interested in awareness, urbanism, social change and creativity.


Getting Involved!

  • We’re looking for people who get involved to transform parking spaces for the day be it into mini parks, installations, games spaces etc.
  • The aim is to create more space for people in our city so put your thinking caps on and come up with some fun, innovative and creative ideas!
  • It’s an excellent opportunity to let your creative side shine, advertise your firm, test out new design concepts and simply have fun!
  • There’s no brief for the interventions so you’d be free to design and install whatever you wish!
