To mark the occasion of the canonisation of John Henry Newman on Sunday 13 October, Irish Messenger Publications issued a compact life of the English saint, written by Dublin diocesan priest Michael Collins. Newman: A short biography » serves as a fine introduction to Newman’s milieu and the culture of London, Oxford, Birmingham, and the other places which played a role in his life. Newman’s development from his early-life Anglicanism (with a strongly evangelical flavour) to his High-Church years in Oxford and then to his eventual Catholicism are well described.

Formed on 1 January 2005, the HSE is responsible for the provision of health and social services, with public funds, for everyone living in Ireland. The greatest change in the Irish population structure in the past decade has been the the proportion and number of persons in the 65+ age cohort. Life expectancy has increased by almost two and a half years since 2005 mainly attributable to decreasing mortality rates among individuals in the older age groups and an indication of greater effectiveness in the prevention and treatment of disease.

The HSE has a budget of €17.4 billion in 2020, an increase of €1.4 billion (6.3%) over 2019. The HSE is the largest employer in the State, with more than 67,000 direct employees, and a further 35,000 employed by agencies funded by the HSE.

Sláintecare is the ten-year programme intended to transform our health and social care services through a universal single tier health service. It is the roadmap for building a world-class health and social care service for the Irish people.
