I had the pleasure of working with Drogheda Credit Union on their annual report. This 51st annual report is a mile stone in the history of credit unions with the amalgamation of Drogheda, Bettystown, Trim and Dunleer Parish Credit Unions. This 44 page document was printed x 50,000 and distributed to credit union members.
“The biggest change in the primary educational system in Drogheda in decades will see the amalgamation of St Brigid’s and St Patrick’s girls and boys schools at Bothar Brugha into one school. New plans will also result in the introduction of a junior infants to sixth class model in both St Joseph’s CBS and the Presentation NS on the Ballymakenny Road. And parents wishing to send their children to the schools – including St Oliver’s NS, whose process remains unchanged – will now have to apply under a common application enrolment form. ‘The common application system makes provision for families to apply for enrolment in St Peter’s Parish schools and will provide a wider choice of school type for children of the parish with greater availability of access to the co-educational model,’ Archbishop Eamon Martin added in a statement this week.”
The Augustinian Garden of Remembrance designed by landscape architect Aideen Morrissey is where people can sit and reflect on their lives or remember loved ones who have passed away. Inspiration for the Garden has grown out of the Augustinian community’s the association with organisations such as SOSAD, the National Roads Authority, and the Emergency Services through the annual Masses in memory of those who have been lost through suicide, road traffic accidents and other tragic circumstances.
When buying printed materials it’s vital to check that you’re not overpaying VAT. There are four different rates (0%, 9%, 13.5% or 23%). Not all print products have the same VAT rate. For VAT registered clients it’s not an issue as they simply reclaim the VAT however for unregistered clients it can make a big difference.
So, if VAT is a cost for your business, be sure that you’re not overpaying it.
Below are a sample of different VAT rates on printed products, taken directly from the Revenue website.
