FORECASTERS now believe Donegal will have dry sunny weather right through the weekend – and it could get warmer!Earlier this week they were predicting showers and rain by Friday.But it now seems Donegal will escape the rain and we could see temperatures reaching 19C on Saturday and Sunday. With another bank holiday weekend coming up, the unexpected warm weather is good news for the tourism industry – as well as children off school.Long term forecasts are showing a dip in temperatures towards the end of next week, but these forecasts are too far off to be totally accurate.MORE FINE WEATHER ON THE WAY – AND IT WILL GET WARMER! was last modified: April 26th, 2011 by gregShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:bundorandonegal weathersunny
Donegal County Council is inviting submissions from members of the public on proposals to vary the basic rate of Local Property Tax in Donegal in 2016.The Council is keen to hear the views and opinions on any proposal to vary the rate of Local Property Tax and in particular, on the potential effects on households, individuals, businesses and indeed on Council services.Local Property Tax is an annual tax charged on all residential properties in Ireland and came into effect in 2013. In accordance with the Finance (Local Property Tax) Act 2012 as amended, local authorities may vary the basic rate of Local Property Tax within its own area by a maximum of 15%.This means that Donegal County Council can either increase or decrease the rate of Local Property Tax in Donegal in 2016 by a maximum of 15% of the 2015 baseline rate. For example, if a house is valued under €100,000, the Local Property Tax in 2015 would have been €90. If the Local Property Tax rate is increased by 15%, this house owner will pay €103.50 in 2016 and if the Local Property Tax rate is reduced by 15%, then this house owner will pay €76.50 in 2016 and so on.The money collected under the Local Property Tax contributes towards the cost of providing a range of local Council services including libraries, public lighting, road maintenance, housing services, fire services, dealing with illegal dumping and littering, community initiatives, beach management and tourism development initiatives.An adjustment in the rate of Local Property Tax will have an impact on the Council’s capacity to deliver these services.For instance, if the rate is reduced and if funding is not available to replace this reduction, then the income available to the Council will be reduced which will in turn limit the range and extent of services and supports that can be provided in 2016. If the rate is increased then an increased level of income available to the Council will increase the capacity to deliver services and supports in 2016.Having considered a range of issues, the Council could also decide not to vary the rate and to the leave the rate the same as in 2015.Donegal County Council is keen to hear the views and opinions on any proposal to increase or decrease the rate of Local Property Tax in Donegal in 2016. In particular, the Council would like to find out more about the potential effects of varying the basic rate of Local Property Tax on households, on individuals, on businesses and indeed on Council services.Further information, including a list of frequently asked questions is available on http://www.donegalcoco.ie/services/financepublications/local%20property%20tax%20adjustment%20factor/The deadline date for all submissions is the 21 August 2015 and submissions should be made in writing and e-mailed to [email protected] or posted to Donegal County Council, LPT Submissions, County House, Lifford, Co. Donegal. Feedback from the public will be considered by the elected members of Donegal County Council as part of the decision making process at a meeting in late September 2015 when a final decision will be made on varying the rate of Local Property Tax in Donegal.PUBLIC INVITED TO HAVE THEIR SAY ON PROPERTY TAX IN DONEGAL was last modified: July 13th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:county councildonegalproperty tax
Fenerbahce apparently turned down the chance to sign Riyad Mahrez from Leicester last summer – instead opting to take Liverpool flop Lazar Markovic on loan.The Serbian has failed to make an impression for the Istanbul side, having managed just a single goal in 16 appearances for the Turkish club this season, who are are unlikely to make his loan deal permanent.And Fenerbahce fans will be left wondering what might have been after it has now emerged the club ignored the chance to buy Mahrez for £8m.According to Fanatik, Claudio Ranieri was ready to sell the Algerian when he took charge at the King Power last summer but Fenerbahce opted for the cheaper option in Markovic.Mahrez has gone on to score 16 goals for the Premier League leaders this season and has been nominated for the PFA Player of the Year gong. The Algerian is expected to be the subject of a number of bids in the upcoming transfer market, but any club interested in landing the playmaker will have to stump up at least £25m rather than the £8m he was available for last summer. 1 Riyad Mahrez in action for Leicester City
