Did no garda in Galway check what people were reported missing around that time, and was no garda in Limerick aware of a body being found in Galway? I’m not satisfied,” added the deceased’s heartbroken Denis Walsh snr.The family have sought permission to exhume Mr Walsh’s remains and lay him to rest finally in his native Limerick.Many other families of missing persons have now been left pondering whether their missing loved one’s remains have been buried or are they still be held in storage.In a statement today, Deputy Duncan Smith said: “In Ireland, there are 823 missing persons files open. However, there is no record of how many remains have been interred in cemeteries, or remain in morgues, as the current rules regulating coroners does not compel them to report unidentified remains to a central system.““There is no one individual or authority with responsibility for collating all the unidentified remains that have been found in this country. We literally do not know how many unidentified remains have been interred in cemeteries or remain in morgues as rules regulating coroners does not compel them to report unidentified remains to a central repository.”“This is set against a total of 823 current missing persons files currently open, the oldest dating back to 1951.“Deputy Smith said coroners “are not compelled“ to report how many unidentified bodies are in the country, “which has led to the perverse situation where families of missing persons must go to individual coroners’ and graveyards to seek information relating to their loved one”.“One family described this process as like going to 40 lost and found desks. At a time of horrendous heartbreak, it’s simply unacceptable that families of missing persons would be treated this way by the State,” he said.“I am calling on the Minister for Justice to right this wrong for families. If coroners cannot find out the ‘how’, they certainly don’t have to find out the who.”“The Corners must be compelled to keep records of unidentified bodies, identifying the cause of their death and opening a system that would reunite the remains of these people with their family and loved ones.““The media has gone above the call of duty for many of these families, searching for answers to these harrowing stories of loss. Instead of having families turn to journalists and the media to solve the mystery of missing persons, the State must play an active role in trying to solve these cases and bring truth to families after the headlines have moved on.” Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Twitter Facebook LimerickNewsAudit of coroners and cemeteries sought to establish number of unidentified remains, in order to help bring closure for families of missing personsBy David Raleigh – March 6, 2021 107 Print Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live last_img read more

Bakers face tighter laws on gluten-free labelling

first_imgNew EU regulations on products labelled as gluten-free, brought into force, mean bakeries are now subject to far tighter controls.As of 1 January, gluten-free products, which are produced for people with coeliac disease or gluten intolerance, must contain less than 20 parts of gluten per million (ppm), in order to be labelled as ’gluten-free’ 10 times less than the previous limit of 200ppm. The legislation also states businesses will be allowed to label products as ’very low gluten’ if they contain less than 100ppm.Walkers has removed the label ’suitable for coeliacs’ from several of its flavours of crisps in response to the new legislation, because its gluten levels don’t fall within the new legal limits.Gluten-free bakery Livwell said the legislation had not affected its business because, like many other gluten-free bakers, its products already contained less gluten than the new limits.Likewise, the founder of gluten-free brand Genius, Lucinda Bruce-Gardyne, said its products had always contained less than 10ppm of gluten because it had never used products containing wheat. She added that the company was planning to double its product range in 2012, following strong sales.Sarah Sleet, chief executive of Coeliac UK, said the new regulations were a positive move. “It provides real reassurance to consumers that, when manufacturers put a gluten-free label on their products, it really does mean something, because it is backed up by law.”Data from Mintel shows the free-from market encompassing nut, dairy, wheat and gluten-free is worth an estimated £195m in annual sales. The market is growing faster than nearly any other food category and it calculates annual sales will hit £519m by 2016. Gluten-free represents the largest section. Mintel’s free-from market data shows that free-from annual sales have grown 300% in the last decade. The gluten-free catering market is estimated to be worth £100m up 15.7% year on year.last_img read more
