WELCOME TO THE BLARNEY & DISTRICT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

I hope everyone had a lovely Easter break and enjoyed the good weather that we had. Hopefully soon we will see a roadmap for businesses to reopen and with that we need to show our support for those that have remained shut for nearly a year now. If we don’t support local we won’t have these businesses to go to and we will have to look outside our own local area for services and local jobs will also be lost. As the roadmap begins with dates we will be supporting those businesses reopening and will announce across all our social media platforms who is reopening and when they are reopening so that we can all support them together.

John Foley CHAIRMAN OF THE BLARNEY & DISTRCT CHAMBER OF COMMERCE JOINING THE CHAMBER If you are thinking about becoming a member, please contact us and we can discuss the host of benefits that come with your membership. We want your business to succeed and grow with the help of the Blarney & District Chamber of Commerce.

CONTACT DETAILS Email: blarneychamber@gmail.com

The Blarney & District Chamber of Commerce are delighted to be working on projects that will help support our local businesses now and when they reopen. One project that we are working on is an app for Blarney and the surrounding areas that will showcase all local businesses and also community events that will be taking place. We believe by developing the app it will let people know what is open, when others are opening, what is on offer and also what is happening in the community. If there is something you would like to see in the app we would love to hear from you. Stay Safe. Thank you, John Foley Chairman Blarney & District Chamber of Commerce

Their dedication to protecting our clients’ premises and carrying out installations provides the basis for continued success. The quality of customer service they give makes our clients happy and is the main reason so much referral business comes our way.

When you are at home keep your keys in a safe place and out of reach from your letter box, they can be easily retrieved through your letter box. Service your intruder alarm regularly.

Cllr Damian Boylan WORDS FROM OUR LOCAL COUNCILLOR

Spring has sprung and with the extra hour daylight there is that feeling of hope. The remaining students will return to school on April 12th and I am sure that parents and guardians are anxious for this to happen. In fact the students themselves are looking forwards to seeing friends and having that social interaction that is vital to their development. We all hope that come the Summer we can all be in a position to socialise in some way and reconnect with people. Vaccination Program. The vaccination program is the secret to all of this happening. The Government has decided that the program will now be based on age and I attach below the graphic showing the various age brackets and their place in the program.

There has been much talk about various groups who feel, and who are quite justified to say, that they should be higher on the list in accordance with their profession. The Government have decided that for simplicity and expediency that the age bracket approach is the most workable. The science supports this as regardless of the profession and exposure of the person being vaccinated, age is the most crucial aspect. This virus can cause grievous harm and that harm seems to affect those that are older. I know I am looking forward to getting the vaccine and for those around me to be vaccinated. I love my home, but I have become too familiar with these surroundings.

WORDS FROM OUR LOCAL COUNCILLOR

Re-opening of society. The plan for opening of society was announced on 30th of March by the Taoiseach. Below you will see the graphic and for those who play golf, the most important date for them is the 26th of April. I see it as a good walk ruined but understand and accept how important sport and social interaction are. €17million Scheme for developing outdoor dining capacity. Minister Patrick O’Donovan has announced a scheme for hospitality to help them provide and develop outdoor dining. Local Enterprise Office LEO (021-4961828) Restart Grants: www.corkcity.ie

The Outdoor Dining Enhancement Scheme comprises two parts and will be delivered in partnership between Fáilte Ireland and Local Authorities across the country. Part One of the Scheme will provide funding for individual tourism and hospitality businesses to develop and increase their own outdoor seating capacity. Funding allocated under Part Two will enable Local Authorities to develop permanent outdoor public dining spaces in towns and urban centres, like those that exist in various European cities. This is a time for hope and the end of this is now in sight. In the meantime if there is anything I can do for you at any stage please don’t hesitate to contact me. Damian

She is a fantastic web developer and web designer. Previously, I had created my own website, so I know how much work goes into it. When starting a new website from scratch, I decided to hire outside help, and I am so glad I did. I’ve had so many compliments on how professional my website looks! Sue is proactive and goes above and beyond to show that she cares about her clients and exceed their expectations. Her post completion service is also fantastic – she really makes sure her clients are looked after. If you need a new website designed and built, I would highly recommend working with Sue.

Our installers are qualified and experienced in all aspects of firestopping design solutions and installation details. Passive fire protection includes compartmentalization of the overall building through the use of fire-resistance rated walls and floors. Separation into individual fire compartments, consisting of one or more rooms or floors, prevents or slows the spread of fire and smoke from the room of fire origin to other building spaces, this can limit property damage and provide extra time to the building occupants to evacuate and reach a safe area.

At first I was sceptical that it would not work out, especially for my 7year old learning piano for the first time, but once we put a bit of effort into getting the video to face the keyboard and my daughter, it has all worked out perfectly. We have both piano and vocal coaching lessons online, and the kids look forward to seeing their lovely teachers each week.
