Look out for elderly neighbours

Dear Madam, - As wintry weather grips Northern Ireland with a significant drop in temperatures, can I again urge everyone to look out for elderly neighbours who find this particular time of year particularly challenging in terms of keeping warm and heating costs.

Help is still needed for the homeless and hungry

Dear Madam, - I, as a volunteer of the Fr. McVerry Homeless and Food Trust, on his behalf, would wish to express sincerest gratitude to Fr. Michael King PP and the generous donations from the good people of Galloon Parish who subscribed to my church gate collection at St. Mary’s and St Patrick’s Donagh on 9 November.

Disastrous decision must be stopped at all costs

Dear Madam, - I am disgusted by the decision of the Education Minister John O’Dowd to terminate the Collegiate Grammar School and Portora Royal School and subsequently spiral post-primary education in Fermanagh into indefinite uncertainty.

Should we allow Enniskillen to become gridlocked?

Dear Madam, - The fact that Enniskillen is just about coping with the traffic that needs to cross daily from one side of Lough Erne to the other has not even been considered by the government body who have pushed their proposal through without any care or consideration for all the people of Fermanagh as a whole.

Why should SDLP stand by and allow absentee MP to be elected?

Dear Madam, - We read with some interest the contribution from a ‘Nationalist voter’ last week suggesting that the SDLP will be punished for refusing to engage in sectarian politics to get an absentee MP re-elected.

Say it isn’t so that farmers will be penalised

Dear Madam, - I was shocked and disgusted at hearing that DARD are now refusing to permit land that was part of the “Planting Native Trees” environment scheme to be eligible for Single Farm Payment. This sounds bizarre and scarcely believable.

Galileo and the unity candidate

SDLP could play into hands of those who wish to turn clock back

Dear Madam, - The SDLP leader, Alasdair Mc Donnell said last week that they reject a call for a single Pro-Agreement candidate in next year’s Westminster election, to do so would be based on sectarianism and selfish interests.

Farcical legislation disastrous to farmers

Dear Madam, - Just when I thought DARD couldn’t be more out of touch with reality, they sink to new lows of farcical legislation.

Views asserted that I don’t hold

Dear Madam, - I was greatly amused to discover from the letters page last week that one reader (I have one!) read my column proposing more integrated education and put me down as some sort of Ku Klux Klansman.

Rapid desegregation of the education system should commence

Dear Madam, - I read Warren Little’s Comment (06.11/14) and I had some strange sense of deja vu. It reminded me of the Southern States of America during the 1960s and the arguments over segregated education there, the same arguments and similar language is being expressed here, typified by Mr. Little’s column.

Use of language

Dear Madam, - I wholeheartedly agree with Shona Morrison’s insight into the changing attitudes to the practice and use of language (Impartial Reporter, 6/11/14) and I am glad to learn that I am not alone in missing obvious language mistakes when self-editing.
