Lucky escape for children as tree collapses CHILDREN in a Northside estate had a lucky escape last week when a massive tree crashed to the ground in their local park.

Miraculously, no one was injured when the horse chestnut tree collapsed at approximately 8.30pm last Tuesday (April 5) at Mask Green, Artane, just minutes after the children had finished playing for the evening. The giant tree, which was ripped from its roots, was located in a popular green space that is used as a main thoroughfare through the Mask estate. Dublin City Council staff visited the scene early on Wednesday morning (April 6) to deal with the incident. Shocked locals were left counting their blessings that a major tragedy did not occur. A local resident breathed a

by Aoibhinn Twomey sigh of relief when his teenage son, who had been walking through the green at the time, escaped unscathed in the dramatic incident. “My son had only gone out the door five minutes earlier when I heard this big bang from the tree hitting the ground,� the relieved father told Northside People. “Thankfully he had been walking on the path around the green at the time. “It was an absolute miracle that no one was killed or injured by the tree.

Anxious wait for group opposed to prison plan AN end to a six-year battle is in sight for the north Dublin residents who have campaigned tirelessly for the Thornton Hall ‘super prison’ plan to be scrapped. A Government appointed committee, which was last week set up to examine the issue, will make a final decision on the Continued page 2 project by July 1.

“I have no doubt that we would be talking about a major tragedy had the tree fallen any earlier in the day or in the morning when children walk through the green on their way to school or crèche.â€? The resident said they had concerns about the condition of the tree and claimed these were reported to Dublin City Council some time ago. “The roots were rotten and there was a hole at the end of the trunk,â€? he added. “The council were called out to examine the condition of the tree around two years ago and they said they’d keep an eye on it.â€? A spokesperson for the Mask Estate Residents’ Association echoed her neighbour’s sentiments that it was a miracle no one was killed. “The green is full of kids playing and socialising all the time,â€? she explained. “We did as much as we could do to protect the public by notifying the council of the rotten condition of the tree two to three years ago.â€?

Anxious wait for group opposed to prison plan

Lobby group Rolestown St Margaret’s Action Group (RSMAG), which has fought tooth and nail for the plan to be abolished, will have an anxious wait over the next four months.

While the pressure group welcomed the establishment of the committee, they were disappointed that they were not given a place on the board. Teresa McDonnell, a

spokesperson for the group, believes that a representative from RSMAG should have been included on the committee given the level of expertise and knowledge they have built up in relation to the

by Aoibhinn Twomey project over the last six years. “We are of course very pleased that a committee has been set up,” she explained. “And while we respect the members of the committee, we are disappointed about the notable absences from the board such as ourselves and the Jesuits, for example. “While we have no doubt that we will be consulted with, we do feel that it would have been very beneficial for all involved if we had been given a place at that table. “We worked very hard over the last six years and have built up an enormous amount of expertise on the project.

“We trust and hope that the committee will see what we see and scrap that project.” She added: “For six years we have argued that the proposal to build a super prison there is wrong - socially, environmentally and morally.” Minister for Justice Alan Shatter (FG) said he was delivering on the programme for Government by appointing the board to review the viability of the project and “consider alternatives, if any, to avoid the costs yet to be incurred by the State in building such a new prison”. “This review will be expeditious and cost effective and I intend to publish this review once it has been completed,” he stated.

The Minister appointed former Supreme Court judge and Law Reform Commission president Catherine McGuinness, Irish Prison Service director general Brian Purcell, his special adviser Tom Cooney and Brendan Murtagh of auditing firm LHM Casey McGrath to the review committee. According to Minister Shatter, the committee members were chosen as “they bring a diverse range of experience to the process at minimum cost to the taxpayer”. The committee has been directed to take into account current and future prisoner numbers of both men and women; the potential alternatives to custody; the relevance of Thornton to the

existing prison structure; and any significant changes in circumstances since previous decisions were made on the development. The 140-acre greenfield site where the 2,200-bed prison was to be located as part of the plan was bought by the FF/PD Government for almost €30 million in 2002. Other fees for professional, consultancy and site works have added a further €15 million to the taxpayers’ bill. Last summer the then Minister for Justice, Dermot Ahern, revealed that the new prison would be delivered on a phased basis with 400 “high-grade” cells accommodating 700 prisoners, opening by 2014.

Student designer sees red for competition

A YOUNG Northside woman is hoping that her passion for fashion will lead to her winning a prestigious award that carries a top prize of €10,000. Aisling Richards-Scully (22), from Donaghmede, is one of eight finalists in the Persil Xpose Fashion Awards 2011.

clothes, toys and blankets for us, which led to her teaching quilt making at the local community hall.” Aisling said that as the youngest she used to tag along so she could learn more from her and other women who attended. “So from an early age I started to think of the technical side of how garments and patterns were constructed,” she stated.

Currently in its 12th year, the hotly contested award is the largest fashion design competition in Ireland. It is a once in a lifetime opportunity for young fashion design students hoping to make their mark in today’s competitive market, and with a first prize of €10,000 is a great boost to their budding careers.

Fascinated

Showcase The eight students are looking forward to showcasing their outfits in the grand final on TV3’s Xpose at the end of April. The outfits will also be showcased in selected Irish Marks & Spencer stores during April and May. This year’s theme is ‘Red Alert’, Persil’s colour. The brief required students to design in red machine washable fabric for spring summer 2011. Students were asked to design whatever they felt fashionable Irish women would like to wear, using a variety of shades of red and textures of fabric.

mum sewing at the kitchen table, making a costume for her eldest sister for a show. “She made the entire costume by laying down a similar dress, cutting out the shape and sewing up the seams,” she said. “This was a person who never got taught the ins and outs of the craft of sewing. She simply picked it up.

“I think that my mum played a big part in my love of fashion and design. That’s where my interest in fashion and textiles came from; I would sit and watch her sew up tiny dolls’ clothes, little tartan dresses with lace sleeves and the tiniest buttons down the front for detail. “She would also sew

“I think also being an Irish dancer made me want to pursue it more. When I went to my dressmaker for fittings for new costumes, I would be fascinated with the design aspect. “I loved the noise of the machines working, the rows of fabrics laid out by colour and the smell of the irons pressing seams.” Aisling said she is pursuing fashion as a career as it has influenced her from an early age. “I love working with my hands and seeing my designs turn out the way I see them in my head,” she added. “I enjoy coming up with new designs, drawing them and bringing them to life and I hope my designs show people who I am as a designer.”

A community unites after sea tragedy

A NORTH county Dublin community united in grief and strength last week after two local fishermen went missing at sea.

by Aoibhinn Twomey

! Naval divers depart from Skerries Harbour to search for the missing fishermen. PHOTO BY DARREN KINSELLA

Ronan Browne (26), from Skerries, and David Gilsenan (41), from Rush, sparked an unprecedented effort by the local community, the RNLI and the authorities after their 17-foot open lobster boat was found five miles off Clogherhead on Saturday, April 2. They had gone out fishing the previous day and the alarm was raised when they failed to return. An estimated 10,000 people supported the families of the men in a ‘walk of solidarity’ last Wednesday (April 6). The event was also aimed at raising funds to fuel the boats that had taken to the sea every day since the fishermen went missing. The show of strength and unity in the Skerries, Loughshinny and Rush communities was never so evident and poignant when thousands of people, young and old, took to the streets to offer support to the search teams. A team of naval divers had backed up the search by local fishermen along with the Garda underwater dive team, as well as the Skerries RNLI and the Irish Coast Guard. The Navy's LE Emer was also drafted in last week to co-or-

dinate the massive search. Eddie Gilsenan, David’s first cousin, said: “The family and the entire community are just completely numbed. “It just goes to show that when push comes to shove the community comes together, no matter what.” Mr Gilsenan, who described his first cousin as a “grafter and a character”, said the family was utterly devastated but consoled by the support they’ve received from the local community. “David lived for the sea and he would have cut off his right

arm to help anyone else,” he added. Seasoned fisherman Ivan Wilde, one of the last people to see Ronan and David before they set out to sea that fateful day, stated: “You couldn’t have met two better guys. “I saw them getting ready to go out that day. It’s just totally shocking.” Throughout last week, Mr Wilde had his trawlers ‘The Syracuse’ and ‘The Nausica’ searching the coastline for the popular fishermen. “It’s terribly devastating for

any family to have to go through this,” said Mr Wilde, who lost a brother to the sea some years ago. Meanwhile, Skerries local Caroline McAllister said the past week had brought home to many people just how danger-

ous the sea can be. “I can’t imagine what the families are going through,” she stated. “It really makes you think that this could happen to any of these fishermen. What more can you say?”

Sutton author over the moon with new book

DONAGHMEDE SHOPPING CENTRE

NORTHSIDE author Anna Kelly celebrated the publication of her second novel last week with a book launch in Malahide. ‘Broken Moon’, published by Poolbeg, is the second book by the Sutton author who only took up writing seriously after she went through major health problems some years ago. Speaking to Northside People, Anna says experiencing a life-threatening illness made her change her priorities and decide to apply herself to writing. “It gave me good shake up and I realised that you’ve only got one shot, so you should get out there and do it,” she states. Although Anna had been writing bits and pieces for herself ever since she was child, she never thought she’d get a book published until Poolbeg accepted her first novel ‘Daniel’s

by Jessica Magee Daughter’.

Dream “I used to dream of being on the Late Late Show with Gay Byrne with a book, but I never pursued it until I recovered from my illness,” she explains. ‘Daniel’s Daughter’ was widely acclaimed by critics and readers alike. It was described in various reviews as “wonderful,” “tremendous,” “a fastpaced page turner” and “a gripping read.” Anna’s latest book, ‘Broken Moon’, has an entirely different storyline but promises to be just as gripping. It tells the story of widower Myles Nugent, who finds unexpected love on the Aran Islands. His daughter Sophie is not a fan of her father’s paramour, and threatens to deprive him of his beloved granddaughter Izzie. When Izzie disappears without warning in the middle of the night, the family is thrown into a living nightmare as they wait for a ransom note that never comes. The finger of blame is pointed at Myles’ new girlfriend, until an astonishing development plunges the family into an even deeper mystery. Despite our best efforts, Anna refused to give away the ending, so Northside People readers will just have to buy the book to find out how the plot thickens. In the meantime, Anna has begun work on her third novel, to complete her three-book deal with Poolbeg.

Saturday r e East

“I can’t say a lot about the third book because it’s mostly in my head at this stage,” she says. “It stays there until I’m fairly sure how it’s going to go; it’s surprising how much writing I do in my head.” Anna does not write on a strict timetable, but prefers to sit down whenever the urge comes over her. “I like to get a certain amount of words done a week, but whether I do it all in one go or over five days doesn’t matter,” she adds. As long as it’s flowing I’m happy to write into the small hours. Once the third book is published, Anna hopes to keeping writing more. “Writing is my escape hatch. I get lost in it and forget all my worries, so why wouldn’t I keep it up, and if people keep buying it all the better!” ‘Broken Moon’ is published by Poolbeg and is available in Easons, Tescos, Dunnes and other bookshops nationwide.

13 APRIL 2011. NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST

People with disabilities urged to register their housing needs THE Clontarf-based Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) recently launched a new and innovative housing initiative to promote the benefits and importance of registering for accessible, affordable, social housing. The campaign, known as Operation Sign Up, was initiated in light of the triennial housing needs assessment which all city and county councils were asked to carry out by the Department of the Environment in March. According to the IWA, historically, the housing requirements of people with disabilities has been underrepresented. The organisation believes that the results of the triennial housing needs assessment have not demonstrated the real demand for social housing amongst people with disabilities. Operation Sign Up aims to encourage as many individuals as possible to register their need for accessible, affordable and appropriate accommodation with their local council. The IWA housing initiative includes a new housing website

www.iwa.ie/house which provides a step-by-step guide to applying for social housing. IWA has broken down the 10 steps involved in the application process and has also listed all other relevant information an individual will require during the application process such as contact details for local councils, information links to local health centres and tax offices, and also details of all local IWA centres. Kathleen McLoughlin, chief executive of the Irish Wheelchair Association, acknowledged the work that city and county councils have done in the past to address the housing needs of individuals already registered on their lists. “However, the demand for affordable and accessible homes has significantly risen over the past three years,” said Ms McLoughlin. “The number of people

Hockey club congratulated on victory DUBLIN North TD Brendan Ryan (Lab) has congratulated Portrane Hockey Club on their resounding win in the Irish Challenge Cup Final, beating Kilkenny 6-2. “The success of Adrian Henchy and his team, bringing the Challenge Cup to Portrane for the first time in the club’s history, is a wonderful achievement for the club,” said Deputy Ryan. “With a new playing facility under construction in Donabate, the future looks very bright for Portrane Hockey Club. “I wish the management, players and supporters every success as they move the club forward and I’m sure the Challenge Cup win will act as a springboard for the club to return to the upper echelons of Leinster Hockey.”

! EXPERT: Expert Hardware will be opening in Raheny at the end of April.

Raheny gets a new Hardware store JOHN Byrne, Raheny native and businessman, is to open a Hardware shop at 437B Howth Road, Raheny, adjacent to the library and Tully’s Pharmacy. Expert Hardware is due to open towards the end of April and will cater for Key Cutting, Paint, Gardening, Electrical, Plumbing and General Hardware and Houseware. The shop will be a much needed replacement for the hardware that disappeared some years ago, and will serve as a competitive local alternative to the larger, and often more expensive providers in the area. Enthusiasm from passers by, and from local residents, has been extremely high, and encouragement from suppliers

equally so. The business will be open seven days a week, with at least one late opening day. The shop is a part of the fast growing ‘Expert Hardware’ group and friendly advice will be freely available, along with numerous special offers which will be on hand from day one. Any products not initially stocked will be speedily sourced to comply with demand. Orders can be placed in advance of opening from Monday, April 18, phone (01) 8512596.

with disabilities currently on council housing lists does not reflect the true demand for accessible, affordable homes. “The curtailed fiscal climate has meant that less people can afford to purchase their own homes. “Organisations such as IWA have a responsibility to address the needs of their members, and we are urging our members and other people with disabilities to log on to www.iwa.ie/house to learn more about the housing options that are available to them.”

Participants sought for Darkness into Light race PIETA House, the Suicide Crisis Centre, has launched its annual Darkness into Light fundraising event and is calling on walkers, joggers and runners to take part. The event will take place in six counties including Dublin (Phoenix Park) and is supported by some of Ireland’s well known personalities including former GAA commentator Micheál O’Muircheartaigh, Operation Transformation guru Kathryn Thomas and Ireland's wellknown tailor Louis Copeland. The event will take place on May 7 and will see participants begin the five-kilometre course at 4am in darkness, and finish while

the dawn is breaking. Entrants can walk or jog the course at their own pace and for those who enjoy a challenge, there will be a special running lane available. The route in the Phoenix Park will start at the Papal Cross car park, turn left onto Chesterfield Avenue, left onto Furze Road, left onto Upper Glen Road, left onto Acres Road before finishing at the Papal Cross car park at the single bollard on the pedestrian path.

Micheál O’Muircheartaigh said he was a huge supporter of Pieta House and the work that they do. “Darkness into Light is a wonderful event and I would encourage both young and old to get involved,” he stated. “What a beautiful way to start your day as the sun comes up, and at the same time raise much needed funds for an extremely worthwhile cause.” Darkness into Light 2011 will raise funds for Pieta House, a voluntary organisation providing professional and therapeutic services to those who may be contem-

plating suicide or self-harming. Joan Freeman, chief executive of Pieta House, said: ‘We are so dependent on the generosity of the public to keep our doors open to those in crisis, that we implore all those fit and able to please support us in this event. “The theme of walking into the light is in line with the work which Pieta House does - providing a service to those in crisis and helping them through their darkest time.

It’s not just paint. It’s personal Planning a neutral nursery for our new baby

Q: I am expecting my first child in June and we haven’t found out the sex of the baby because we want it to be a surprise. I really want to start getting the nursery ready but I am unsure what colours to use that would work for both a girl and a boy. What would you recommend? A: Congratulations! This is an incredibly exciting time for you and I can imagine all the options you are thinking of trying out in your nursery. I will try to make it a little easier for you and recommend a design that’s

long lasting, until your child is ready to make some of their own decorating choices. First things first, as pinks and blues are out you’ll need to decide on a gender-neutral colour scheme. I always think

it’s a good idea to shy away from the traditional pink and blue shades in a nursery anyway as there are so many other shades available that will help you create a wonderful, calming environment for your new baby. Colour is so important for children at a young age and it’s important to select shades that will soothe and aid sleep. Colours should not be aggressive as your baby will find it very hard to sleep and may not get the best rest possible. Think about soft yellows, warm creams and soft greens when decorating your nursery. Take a look at a selection of Crown Paints colour cards. They

in association with

have a wealth of colours in this spectrum for you to choose from that will look beautiful in your nursery. Shades such as Gentle Yellow, Sunrise and Just Lemon are bright, warm and sunny colours that will work well for both genders. Softer blues and greens will work really well too. Take a look at the Crown Classic Collection at shades such as Elegant Scent, Elegant Gown and Elegant Chiffon which are calming and subtle shades of duck egg blue that will create a relaxing area for you and your baby. Make sure you use soft to mid tones and that the colours you choose work together to complement and create a nice atmosphere in the room. If you prefer to keep the walls completely neutral and introduce patterns and shades through your soft furnishing then the Classic Collection from Crown is the perfect place to find a classic neutral shade. Classic Neutral, Classic Umber, Organic Silk or Organic Buff are just a few shades from the collection that will create the perfect balance of comfort and freshness. I would advise using paint

from the Easyclean range as it is the perfect paint to use on nursery walls where marks and stains simply wipe off without leaving any shiny patches. I suggest placing a wooden floor in your nursery as it will be the easiest to keep clean. Flooring is a very important aspect of a nursery as plenty of spills and splatters are unavoidable. You can always place a cosy rug on the floor to add a little warmth to the room. Alternatively, a deep pile carpet in a

pale, neutral shade will add a lovely sense of cosiness to the room. For furniture options, select pieces with natural tones in the wood. I would invest in a chest of drawers that could be used as a changing table for now and then can still be used in the future. There are some wonderful affordable storage options available from wicker baskets to storage benches in home department stores such as IKEA. These are useful for keeping

all the baby essentials together and can then be used for holding all your child’s toys when their collection grows. A rocking chair or comfortable armchair would be a fantastic addition and will also be useful when you are nursing your child. Soft lighting is a must in a baby’s room and a dimmer switch would be perfect to allow you to regulate how bright the room is. A nice side lamp would also fit well into the room. There are some beautiful soft furnishings for babies available at the moment so you’ll have an array of choice. Look for colours that will complement the existing wall, floor and furniture tones and of course when you know the sex of your child you can add accessories in the appropriate gender colours. With these decorating tips I hope you can create a special room for the new addition to your family.

are determined not to be beaten by a job when, in truth, they need more knowledge, the right tools and someone to help. Other common accidents are down to children or pets causing distractions, dodgy electrics, bogey plumbing and collapsing shelves and other structures. Employers have to ensure the safety of their staff and provide proper training and wellmaintained tools but the DIY enthusiast is left to protect him or herself – not good for those with inflated ideas of their abilities. It’s important to follow some guidelines when starting a DIY project. Here’s our top tips for home safety. ! Plan the job and have all the right safety gear like goggles, masks and gloves. Use the right tools for the job and take your time; ! Keep tools properly maintained; ! If using electrical equipment make sure you fit a RCD (Residual Current Device) first. If you accidentally cut through a flex or cable the RCD will cut off the power supply to the equipment. This reduces the risk of you being electrocuted; ! Always place electrical cables behind you while you work and don't allow them to become kinked or frayed; ! If hiring tools make sure you are shown how they work, are

provided with proper instructions and that you read them carefully before use. Make sure you have any necessary protective equipment such as gloves or goggles. Look for a tag on the equipment which confirms it has been checked and serviced since it was last returned to the hire shop; ! Remember the 'one out, four up' rule when using a ladder. This means to match every one measure out from the wall with four measures up to get the safest ladder angle. Only ever place the ladder on firm ground and wear non-slip shoes. Never over-reach - take the time to move the ladder instead; ! When lifting, stand close to the object, feet spread on either side of the load to give stability, bend the knees and avoid stooping; ! Don't be over ambitious. Using an expert can save money and pain in the long run; As well as making sure of your own personal safety when starting a DIY project, it’s worth checking out your household insurance too. Accidental damage to some parts of your home, such as baths, sinks, ceramic hobs and fixed glass in doors, is included as standard in most buildings insurance policies. However, it’s worth reading the small print to ensure your policy will protect you – financially at least – in the event of a DIY disaster.

A proud community that’s rich in character THERE are a number of ingredients that go into making a community special.

Education

ONE of the biggest blows suffered by the Kilbarrack community in recent years was the closure of Greendale Community School. However, fortunately, the building is still being used for educational purposes. Greendale, the alma mater of former Booker Prize winner Roddy Doyle, opened in 1975 with a capacity for around 800 pupils. The school quickly grew in popularity and boasted around 900 students in the early 1980s. However, pupil numbers fell dramatically and in 2004 a decision was made to close the school in three years’ time. The decision shocked the community and despite a series of protests taking place, the school eventually closed on June 22, 2007. While Greendale CS ceased to

Today the building is used by Coláiste Dhulaigh College of Further Education and St Michael’s House, the latter being given a section of the building for use for local community services for

people with an intellectual disability. Scoil Eoin, Gaelscoil Mide, St Benedict’s, St Mary’s and North Bay Educate Together National School are among the primary schools that have served the Kilbarrack area very well over the years. Kilbarrack Local Education for Adult Resources (KLEAR) has been one of the great success

stories in Kilbarrack over the last three decades. The community-based adult education centre offers a broad range of classes in a friendly, supportive atmosphere. KLEAR, which is run by a management group consisting of tutors and students, has catered for the educational needs of thousands of adults over the years.

Sport If ever a sports club showed an example of how to triumph over adversity, it was Kilbarrack United FC. Plans for a much-needed clubhouse began way back in 2002, but just six weeks away from completion in July 2007, the building was destroyed in a fire. Despite the major setback, the community rallied around to ensure the €700,000 project would eventually be com-

pleted. February 12, 2009 was a very proud day for the club when Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni officially opened the new clubhouse against all the odds. Kilbarrack United FC was founded in 1970 and have continued to represent the area with great distinction ever since. The club currently has a number of senior teams, junior teams and a nippers’ academy, and last November celebrated

its 40th anniversary with a special function at the Hilton Hotel, Clare Hall. Kilmount Boys’ FC is another soccer club that serves the area well, providing an important recreational outlet for locals. Naomh Barrog GAA Club was founded in September 1974 to cater and serve the area of Kilbarrack with the promotion of Gaelic games. The club started from small beginnings with a few juvenile teams and built from there. They have been playing on

their current ground since it was opened in 1984. Although the grounds were originally earmarked to be converted into a women's prison, local support and some political pressure saw the land leased to the club for the sole purpose of gaelic games. Subsequently, the club was given a 50-year lease for the site. They developed a pitch and erected concrete and palisade fencing around the ground which has become a well known landmark near Howth Junction. Naomh Barrog has many

teams ranging from all grades and ages including adult teams, juvenile teams and ladies’ teams. Naomh Barrog's colours are green and red which were picked by a Mayo man who was the first chairman of the club. One of the club’s biggest successes came in 2001 when it opened a new clubhouse, which has brought huge benefit to the community over the last decade. Boxing is another popular sport in Kilbarrack with Bay City

Boxing Club proudly flying the flag in this respect and enjoying a number of successes over the years.

Community groups THERE are a number of community groups in Kilbarrack that provide an excellent service for locals. These include the Kilbarrack Coast Community Programme (KCCP), Club4U and St Benedict’s Photography Group to name but a few.

KCCP works with people who have become involved with drugs and their families, it works with the young people in the area and it strives to be involved in community development initiatives. Kilbarrack Club4U comprises a group of dedicated volunteers and young people aged 15-18 in the area that take part in youth work activities such as fundraising, training and fun programmes. They meet regularly at St Benedict’s Resource Centre.

13 APRIL 2011. NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST

There will be no honeymoon period offered (or asked for!) especially in working class areas like Kilbarrack. The last two years or so will certainly go down as one of the most turbulent periods in recent times given our economic woes and the situation we now find ourselves in after years of living it up while the Celtic

Tiger strutted across our communities. Who could have predicted the crisis that has cast doom and gloom over every town and village in the country? The tiger is but a distant dream and has been replaced by the wolf that we’re all battling to keep from the door. However, we’ve been down this darkened road before, albeit not for some time, and our fighting spirit will see us through no doubt. It’s time for our communities to batten down the hatches and pull ranks, support each

other in these challenging times. Business communities especially are in need of our support and there has never been a more important time to support our local traders and play our part in keeping employment levels in our areas. Kilbarrack is one of those areas that has always strived to offer its citizens quality local services. It has always been renowned as a close-knit community providing shops, schools, sports clubs and recreational outlets.

From humble beginnings, Kilbarrack has grown along with the population explosion and this growth has been more than matched by local businesses that have stepped up to the mark. There is a lot of things you need in the area with local businesses always willing to welcome you with a friendly smile, as well as that all important quality service. In a lot of cases, those serving us from behind the counters are our neighbours, which is another incentive to shop local during these challenging

times. Kilbarrack has a local office of Dublin City Council, two shopping areas and a range of shops and pubs. There is a major Health Services Executive (HSE) centre, and, at the boundary with Raheny and Donaghmede, a Municipal Fire Station and practice yard. Kilbarrack is fortunate in that is located close to the coast and all the natural amenities that involved. It is also close to the city centre and of course having the DART line on its doorstep

makes travelling about much easier. Bus routes also serve the area. Kilbarrack has a proud history and great potential and there’s no better time to support the local businesses on our doorstep that have been looking after us in good times and bad. Indeed, the Northside of Dublin is full of working class communities that give this side of our fair city a good name and none more so than Kilbarrack, a thriving area that’s rich in history and character.

The expansion of hospice services to comprehensively serve North Dublin is vital. In July 2009 St. Francis Hospice set out to achieve this through commencing the building of a second facility, St. Francis Hospice, Blanchardstown, Dublin 15. . The first phase of the Hospice, which includes a Hospice Day Care Center, a base for our Community Palliative Care Team and Out Patient services is now complete and the building of a 24-bed In-Patient Unit is well underway and will be completed in March 2011. Together, St. Francis Hospice, Raheny and Blanchardstown, will provide greatly-enhanced palliative care services to the people of North Dublin City and County. MAJOR VOLUNTARY SUPPORT IS REQUIRED TO MEET CONSTRUCTION COSTS The construction cost for the new Hospice is ¤22 M. (including fees) and we are totally dependent on the ongoing support and generosity of the community to assist in meeting the costs associated with the development. The site has been

Marie Keating Foundation launches marathon campaign MODEL and TV presenter Glenda Gilson was on hand to launch the Marie Keating Foundation’s Women’s Mini Marathon campaign last week. This is the fourth year that Glenda has led ‘Team Marie Keating’ and with almost 800 women taking part on behalf of the Foundation last year, it is one of the largest groups to participate in this ever-popular annual event. Linda Keating, Director of Fundraising for the Foundation, said: “The mini marathon has always been one of the highlights of our year. “It is a terrific event and we are very fortunate to have such a large group taking part on our behalf again this year. “The camaraderie between the ladies is incredible and we are delighted to have Marks & Spencer on board as our sponsor again this year.” Carmel Breheny, marketing manager for Marks & Spencer Ireland, said they have proudly supported the Marie Keating Foundation’s Mini Marathon campaign for the last six years. “I would encourage both customers and our staff to take part this year in what is a great day out for a very worthy cause,” stated Ms Breheny. To join Team Marie Keating, phone 6283728 or visit www.mariekeating.ie

NOW that we’ve come out of one of the coldest winters in many years, it’s time to take stock of our homes and their effectiveness when it comes to retaining heat. External wall insulation is a composite cladding system comprised of suitable insulation and waterproof coating that is applied to the external walls of a building. The most efficient way to insulate an existing building, the system uses the fabric of the building like a storage radiator. Because the heat can no longer escape through the outer layer of insulation, it is reflected back into the living areas, creating a warm, comfortable home. With up to 40 per cent of heat lost through external walls, external wall insulation can help reduce your heating bills by up to 40 per cent. It can also reduce your carbon footprint by cutting your CO2 emissions by 2.5 tonnes per year. Even better news is that grants from the Sustainable Energy Association of Ireland are now available to help homeowners avail of external wall insulation. Up to €4,000 can be claimed for the installation of external wall insulation in domestic buildings and the addition of effective energy-saving measures are great for upgrading your existing home. External wall insulation is suitable for domestic and commercial buildings, but is particularly suited to the retrofit of existing homes. For more information visit www.externalinsulation.ie or phone 2811251.

Osteopathy the simple beauty behind the treatment

OSTEOPATHY IN THE CRANIAL FIELD

In past articles it has been explained that osteopathy is a system of diagnosis and treatment that works with the structure and function of the body. We have discussed how the structure is essential to the function, and therefore the health of the body, and that good mechanical structure is vital in the maintenance of good health. We have explained how poor mechanical function can cause disturbance to the muscular, nervous or circulatory systems of the body in the local area and to the body as a whole. Within the body is a system that controls the fluid (Cerebro Spinal Fluid) that bathes every nerve in the body, and as healthy nerve supply is essential to all bodily functions, it is plain to see how important this system is. The CSF (Cerebro Spinal Fluid) is formed in the brain and serves to protect and cushion the brain and spinal cord. As this fluid flows downward, it carries away toxic wastes and moves hormones between widely separated regions of the brain. The success of this system is

understanding of the principles of osteopathy. Treatment should only be by a properly trained practitioner and is very gentle. It involves the gentle movement of the bones, membranes and fluids within the Cranial mechanism, and can be helpful in treatment of all age groups. Therapy involves a very gentle touch of the practitioners hands, both for diagnosis and for treatment. This light contact may be taken up on the cranium, the sacrum or any other part of reliant upon the integrity and unobstructed movement the body as appropriate.

hypnotherapy psychotherapy clinic Wouldn’t it be great to have all the confidence, peace of mind and happiness you want. Yet with all the day to day stresses and pressures around it can seem that life is out to get you.

We can feel thrown off balance, our beliefs shattered, lack of motivation and fearful. When this happens we lose our ability to think clearly and rationally and we lose sight of things. We constantly worry about different things that never happen and by doing this we waste years of our life that we never get back. Our emotions can gallop away from us and if we leave this unchallenged it can consume our everyday lives with negative thoughts and negative behavioural patterns. However, there is good

news! We can take control back of our lives! We can feel calm, relaxed and in control in difficult situations. We all have the power within us to reach our potential and set ourselves free. Wendy Quinn is an experienced hypnotherapist/psychoth erapist, qualified life coach and NLP practicioner. She has worked thousands of clients enabling them to accomplish that all important change in their state of mind and overwell being. An innovative approach is used to increase belief and motivation and boost confidence needed to resolve issues and create positive change. Contact: Wendy Quinn MICHP at 086 6848046/01 8063896.

The fun with fitness dance workout already has ten million Participants in classes around the globe and has spread like wildfire internationally. Now the heat is on Ireland as the country’s premier dance fitness company, Stepping Out are launching their ten week Zumba Fitness Summer Shape Up. Designed to lead you right into the summer with the energy to enjoy the long days and the new shape to banish those bikini blues. More than 7,000 people did our New Year Zumba shape up, Says Stepping Out founder, Sharon Tinkler; We know demand is high for this next course in fact more than half the classes are already full. We are putting on extra classes to try to facilitate the demand but I can’t over emphasis the need for early booking. The dance driven programme, features fast and slow rhythms fusing; South

American zest with high energy moves combining into the perfect exercise routine. It is the ultimate way to shed loads of pounds without spending them quips Sharon, It is a type of belt-tightening that people will actually look forward to, she adds. If you lose 2lbs a week over the ten weeks of the course, you would lose 1.5 stone. You would be fitter, healthier and because of the workout you change body shape and we will make you smile, she says. The sessions and routines are done in line formation so clients do not have to have partners. Dragging yourself to the gym to sweat on a treadmill on your day off just isn’t fun. That’s where Zumba comes in, wrote Cosmopolitan magazine. The New York Times was equally impressed: A session with Zumba can feel like a trip to a night club, was its verdict.

Sharon agrees with this: We want you to want to work out, that is our goal, and that is the key to Zumba. It is a satisfying and fulfilling fitness programme but the gain comes without pain, and that is why it is so popular across the planet. We wanted to offer our customers something different but something that they can enjoy and be comfortable with while having a good time. Basically, we want you to make the most of yourself, with the most popular, most effective and most fun way to keep fit, Sharon concludes. For further information on local venues and start dates log on to www.steppingout.ie or call 01 620 5030 Pictured at the launch of The Stepping Out Zumba Summer Shape Up course Stepping Out founder Sharon Tinkler and Stepping Out Teachers.
