Eircom.net email service – 29 March 2020
eir had planned to introduce a €5.99 per month charge for its eircom.net email service from the end of March 2020. In view of the current Covid-19 outbreak, eir has put that decision on hold – see statement below from their website.
eir has taken the decision to put the subscription charge for the eircom.net email service on hold for the foreseeable future. This means there will be no changes to how eircom.net email customers access their emails – our priority during these challenging times is the maintenance of essential communication services for all eir customers.
Information with regard to the eircom Superannuation Funds, issued on behalf of:
Brian Duncan, Chairman of the Trustees of the eircom Superannuation Fund and Ray Lawlor, Chairman of the Trustees of the eircom No 2 Superannuation Fund.

As we now know, Coronavirus (COVID-19) is a serious illness and we, because of our age profile, may be at greater risk than others if we catch it. For many of us, we would have been the ones who volunteered in the past to help our community when needed. On this occasion, the greatest contribution we can make is to minimise social contact and avoid contracting the virus.
It is advisable to have your GPs name, phone number and address readily to hand and to keep in regular contact with family/friends.
If you have access to the internet, there are some services (such as orchestras) which are providing free access to their content at the moment. Some are listed on the attached. Doubtless there are many more – these are just a sample.
IMPORTANT NOTICE ATTENTION ALL MEMBERS - AGM POSTPONED
PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF THE RCPSA, SCHEDULED TO TAKE PLACE ON 21 MAY 2020, HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Notwithstanding the provisions of Rule 8(e), that the AGM shall be held before 31st May in each year, in the light of the extraordinary national circumstances currently prevailing, the Officers of the Council, in consultation with the Trustees and the Standing Orders Committee, have decided that it is in the best interests of members to cancel the arrangements for 21 May 2020 and to reschedule the AGM at a future date to be announced in due course.
In these exceptional circumstances, the current Council, Trustees and Standing Orders Committee will remain in place in an acting capacity after 21 May 2020, until the Association can hold an AGM. As soon as the restrictions imposed by the current emergency are lifted, the Council will organise an AGM as soon as is practicable.
