Story ideas for Tuesday 14th October 2014

October 13, 2014 Posted in : Budget15, Failte Ireland, Galzacs, Galzacs Guide, MABS

Story Idea: Budget 2015- Analysis of the tourism sector
Expert: Alex Connolly (Expert in Tourism and Hospitality Industry) Head of Communications and Tourism, Fáilte Ireland.

Story Idea: Light at the end of the Tunnel – Life after a Debt Relief Notice (DRN)
Expert: Michael Culloty (Expert in Debt Advice and Consumer Debt Issues) National Social Policy and Communications Officer, MABS.
The Hook: MABS welcomes the announcement by the Insolvency Service of Ireland of the suspension of application fees for the new insolvency options. The fees were one factor, which was preventing many potentially eligible people from applying. Despite their best efforts, too many people remain unable to pay their personal debts. For over 20 years MABS has supported people to work with their creditors to reach realistic sustainable payment agreements.  In many cases this works very well and people get back on track. However, for many this is simply not possible. DRNs can be the solution for people on a low income, with little or no assets and very little deposable income available to repay personal debts under €20,000. Under a DRN it is possible to have all qualifying debt written off. For more on this, please contact Michael Culloty of MABS.
