Resident angered over council work Aoife O’Brien A NORTHSIDE resident has been left irate after Dublin City Council allegedly damaged a wall while cutting back overgrown ivy on the public side of his property. Ian McDonagh, who has been living in Coolock village since 2005, had been requesting that the city council
maintain the ivy since May 2018. Illegal dumping, including flytipping, had became a regular occurrence in the massive overgrowth which Mr McDonagh said he had to remove himself regularly so that the city council would collect it. The situation finally came to a head on January 20 when there was an incident involving a number of males
dumping rubbish in the hedge. According to Mr McDonagh, the following day, the city council sent five men out to cut back the ivy. However, he claimed that instead of using a petrol hedge cutter, as would have been used in previous years, a roadside flail mower that was too big for the area was used. “They couldn’t fit the flail machine
cutter in between the trees like they should have done but they wedged it in anyway,” alleged Mr McDonagh. “They dislodged the capping stones the length of the wall, and all the planting I had at the back, the banana tree I had growing, all got capped by this inappropriate machine.”
The city council was asked to cut back the overgrown ivy on the public continued on page 2 side of Mr McDonagh’s property.

Event to be held in memory of Baby JJ A NORTHSIDE sports club is holding an event this weekend in memory of a baby boy who died of cot death last year. On Sunday, February 16 the Swords Boxing Club community will host a first year anniversary charity coffee morning in memory of Baby JJ Harford who died at just ten-weeks-old on February 17, 2019. The special event is being organised by Baby JJ's parents, Gráinne and Joey Skelly Harford, along with his sisters Amber and Ava. Speaking about their son, Gráinne said: "This past year has been the most difficult year in our families’ lives after losing a much-loved son, brother, grandson, nephew and cousin. “To celebrate Christmas
morning with our two daughters with the biggest pain in our heart wishing our son was here with his family too, then having to also pick out a headstone for JJ on his first birthday instead of buying him gifts. “How do you even call a headstone nice, what is the word for it? But I wanted it to say what I felt about JJ and how special he was in our lives. He may have only been here for a short while but he brought us so much happiness and made us all smile.” All funds raised on the day are being donated to FirstLight, who, since 1976, have been providing crisis intervention and free professional counselling services throughout Ireland to bereaved parents and
family members whose child has died suddenly up to 18 years. Gráinne said: “Throughout this year fundraising and raising awareness of cot death has been my goal and I would like to thank each and every person who has shown their support to us and to FirstLight by keeping Baby JJ in their thoughts and his memory alive. "For any family to lose a child it's heartbreaking. A part of you dies with them. There is an emptiness that cannot ever be filled. Only other families in our same position really understand this, and we hope they also can get the support and counselling they need to be provided by FirstLight." Those attending the
Baby JJ Harford with his sisters Amber and Ava. event in memory of Baby JJ and in aid of FirstLight include Mayor of Fingal Cllr Eoghan O'Brien, European Boxing Gold Medallist and Sports Star of the Year 2019 Niamh Fay, as well as Fair City actress and FirstLight Ambassador Una Crawford O'Brien. Chief executive of FirstLight Fionnuala Sheehan said: "We would
like to sincerely thank the entire Harford family and Swords Boxing Club community who have worked tirelessly to support FirstLight these past 12 months. Their support has gone on to help so many other FirstLight families." For more information on the service FirstLight provides, visit www. firstlight.ie

Thuggery on Luas needs to be tackled TONY McCULLAGH Editor Dublin People Group firstname.lastname@example.org
THE incoming Government will have a long list of election promises to make good on, from reducing hospital waiting lists to solving the housing crisis. Crime was also a major issue on the doorsteps, with ongoing feuding and the gruesome murder of a teenager providing an unsettling backdrop to
the election campaign. While our politicians will be under pressure to prioritise many different issues, there is one area that I believe needs their immediate focus – the safety of passengers and staff across our public transport network. The Luas Red Line was once again back in the headlines for all the wrong reasons last month when a woman’s hair was set alight by a gang of thugs – an incident that caused chaos and distress for everyone on board, not least the victim. The Luas has served us well since first coming into operation in 2004. It has transformed the look and sound of the city and boosted property
The Kylemore Luas stop on the Naas Road.. FILE PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA prices along its routes. Despite the extension of the Luas out as far as Broombridge, the Northside barely got a look in. Between them, the Red and Green Lines benefit large sections of the Southside, linking the city centre with Tallaght and Cherrywood/Brides Glen respectively. Given the amount of hassle regularly reported on Red Line services, I wonder, in hindsight, if the Government would have been better off providing a rail link to Dublin Airport instead of spending money
on a public transport route so prone to anti-social behaviour. This newspaper recently reported that senior citizens are afraid to use Luas services on the Red Line for fear of being intimidated or terrorised by out of control teenagers. The appalling behaviour on board the trams can range from smoking and drinking to racial abuse and physical assaults. The low-life engaged in this type of activity are most likely serial fare evaders, depriving the Luas operators of income – money that could be spent on beefing up security
measures. But hiring additional private security staff to patrol the Luas is only a sticking plaster solution. Ultimately what is needed is a dedicated Garda transport unit with powers of arrest and the requisite training to deal with public order incidents. This is something that needs to be rolled out across the DART, commuter rail and bus networks. The next Ministers for Justice and Transport would do well to start with the Luas Red Line which has become a byword for trouble.

Artist is seeking volunteers for iconic artwork in Swords ONE of Ireland’s top artists is looking for volunteers from across Fingal to participate in making an iconic artwork which will be permanently displayed in a prominent site within the Swords Cultural Quarter. John Byrne has been commissioned by Fingal County Council under the Infrastructure 2018–2021 Public Art Programme. Mr Byrne is planning to create a giant photographic image, featuring a crosssection of people in Fingal, which will be printed and fired onto steel panels. The image will reference two well-known historical European paintings for which Mr Byrne will cast a broad range of Fingal residents. They will be immortalised in the artwork essentially engaged in a ‘tug of war’ between the two paintings representing the ‘pull’ between rural and urban

He is asking members of the public to send him a photograph of themselves along with details of their age and height and their email and phone contact details. The photograph can be a selfie or a clear head

LIAM Ó DROMA DENTIST Patients with full upper and lower dentures will be pleased to hear that there is now a relatively easy option they may wish to consider, changing to fixed in bridgework, using a revolutionary new implant system using compressive and Basal bone implants inserted using the Minimally Invasive Implantation Insertion (MIMI) surgical technique. The system is suitable for most patients. Because of the means of their fixation, immediate fixation is enabled, meaning that they can be “loaded” straight away, so that the waiting period is minimised, usually only the period for the dental lab fabrication procedure before the final prosthesis is fitted. In the interim period a fixed in provisional prosthesis can be provided on the day the implants are inserted. The cost of this Implant system is about €10,000 for both the upper and lower jaw, usually based on 10 to 8 implants in the upper and about 8 in the lower. All treatments are eligible for a Med 2 tax refund which means you are entitled to a refund of 20% of the total treatment. Should you wish to appraise yourself of all the other services our Clinic offers, please visit our website at www.orthocosmetics.ie As with all such dental speciality queries at our centre, your initial consultation for such proposed treatment is complimentary. If you have any queries or would like to book a consultation, please contact us at 01 8395254, 087 6190814 or email@example.com We look forward to helping you.

Beaumont in Pink Camino call THE Beaumont Hospital Foundation is organising a special Camino trip in May which extends particular invitation to people who have been treated for breast cancer – either in Beaumont Hospital or elsewhere - and includes instructor-led daily yoga and meditation sessions. The week long 115km walking challenge (May 16 to 23) is open to anyone but the Foundation is encouraging breast cancer survivors, and those who supported them, to take on this challenge both to mark their recovery and to help future patients through fundraising support for the €1 million Breast Clinic Appeal at the hospital. The aptly named Pink Camino hopes to recruit 20 participants to sign-up – either as individuals or as groups – to walk the distance Yoga instructor Kelly Molloy
Summer projects FINGAL County Council has launched its Summer Project Programme 2020 which is open to groups that provide recreational and educational services to young people during the summer. The Community Culture & Sports Division encourages community groups and projects to apply for a grant which provides a subsidy to enable the project leaders to run a successful summer project. Projects should focus on environmental awareness, community/ civic awareness, intercultural or integration activities and sports/recreational activities. Projects can apply for funding of up to €2,000 each. Groups are invited to complete and submit the Summer Project Expression of Interest Form on or before Friday, February 28. Forms are available on https://www. surveymonkey.com/ r/5MY27WY.
over six days. It will start from the town of Sarria on the French Way to the spiritual epicentre of the Camino, the St James Cathedral in Santiago de Compostela. A highlight of the trip will be optional morning yoga and evening meditation sessions, led by highly qualified yoga instructor, Kelly Molloy. Kelly will guide participants in how to maximise the physical and spiritual aspect of the trip by teaching the benefits of these gentle practices. Each day the group will walk an average of 20km and the trip cost includes flights, half
board accommodation in 3 star hotels and daily luggage transfers. Training walks will be organised on the weekends before departure so that the group can meet up and improve their walking abilities. Sheila Campbell, fundraising and communications manager at Beaumont Hospital Foundation, said: “We are inviting people who have had a breast cancer experience to join us. Many people say they’d like to go on the Camino ‘some day’ but why wait? “This year’s trip is focused on helping
people to mark their recovery from cancer by branching out and doing something out of the ordinary and contributing to the Breast Clinic Appeal.” While the trip will focus on those who have had breast cancer and their families and friends, it is open to anyone interested in supporting improved patient care in any area of Beaumont Hospital. If you would like our information pack or would like to discuss the trip by phone, call Beaumont Hospital Foundation on 018092927 or email hello@ beaumont.ie

Caitlyn Jenner and Agnes Brown enjoy a good read Dublin People Group can now count Olympic champion and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner among its 257,140 weekly readers. Jenner, who appeared in ‘I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out of Here’ and ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’, was recently photographed on the set of ‘All Round to Mrs Brown’s’, which was recorded in the BBC’s Glasgow studios. She posted a photo of herself reading a specially mocked-up edition of Northside People, alongside the show’s creator and star, Brendan O’Carroll, on
her Instagram page, which has over 10 million followers. The story of Jenner’s upcoming cameo on ‘All Round to Mrs Brown’s’ – and the image of her reading our local newspaper - was published by various national media outlets, including RTÉ and the Irish Independent, and was widely shared on social media. Northside People has provided mockedup, spoof editions of the paper for BOC Productions, the company behind ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’, since 2011. The newspaper has appeared
in almost every episode since the second series of the show, including the Christmas specials and a live broadcast of ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’ to celebrate 60 years of comedy at the BBC. Dublin People’s group editor, Tony McCullagh, comes up with the funny headlines for the special editions, with some creative input and feedback from O’Carroll himself. Conor Mahon, managing director of Dublin People, said the relationship with ‘Mrs Brown’s Boys’ has provided invaluable branding for the Northside People title.
PHOTO: CAITLYN JENNER, INSTAGRAM “We are extremely fortunate to have this relationship with a show as popular as this,” he said. “In terms of product placement, it doesn’t get much better or bigger
than this.” Dublin People publishes three print titles every week – Northside People (east), Northside People (west) and Southside People – in addition
to a website (www. dublinpeople.com) and various social media platforms. It has been a leading player in the Dublin local newspaper market since 1987.
Fighting monsters above and below the water TWO movies recently released, feature female leads battling disgusting beasts. The monsters in question are underwater ghouls and men. ‘Underwater’ stars Kristen Stewart as an engineer on an drilling station who is one of a few to survive when her rig is hit by an unexplained explosion. Being six miles under the sea, the captain, played by Vincent Cassel, decides the crew’s only chance of survival is to walk along the seabed to a nearby undamaged substation. It’s during this journey that our heroes discover the real reason behind the deadly damage to their marine workplace, a series of undiscovered monstrous beasts that prowl the depths of our oceans. If you’re already thinking the setup sounds remarkably
like ‘Alien’ or ‘The Abyss’, you’re right. There isn’t much new on offer here, but the story may appear original to younger audiences. We award it a review score of 2.5 average stars. ‘Birds of Prey’, starring Margot Robbie as comic book character Harley Quinn, takes place on dry land and unfortunately is firmly rooted there for its almost two hour running time. The story, what little there is, never really takes off. Instead the audience is treated to scene after scene of Harley beating up various types of men, including cops, for no particular reason. Lazy filmmaking that in some way thinks it’s advancing the cause of women. Perhaps the best film of the week comes from Irish filmmaker Ciaran Cassidy who brings us a fascinating documentary about an
infamous American woman with Irish connections, ‘Jihad Jane’. Back in 2010, Jane (real name Colleen LaRose), together with a female accomplice, was arrested in Waterford and deported back to the States where she was branded “The new face of terrorism” by the US Government. Jane had converted to Islam and was reportedly residing in Ireland while planning an attack on Swedish journalist, Lars Vilks. The film tells the fascinating story of Jane and her accomplice in a way that makes us understand their abusive backgrounds, and leaves us feeling more sympathy for them than the target of their attack. A compelling watch. Paul O'Rourke

Winners are alright at the big Dublin Racing Festival LEOPARDSTOWN came alive on the first weekend of February as a crowd of 14,204 descended on the Southside race course for the first day of the Dublin Racing Festival. Wonder-mare Honeysuckle produced the performance of her career to take the PCI
Irish Champion Hurdle on an afternoon her rider Rachael Blackmore described as "magic". Dublin Racing Festival came to a rapturous close on the Sunday with Delta Work taking the Grade 1 Paddy Power Gold Cup to complete a treble for Gordon Elliott.
Leopardstown CEO, Tim Husbands, said: "It has been an incredible weekend. The racing was extremely competitive and top quality which created a fantastic atmosphere. I would like to thank all the trainers, owners and our partners for contributing to this.
“The support of everyone is key to success and this weekend has reinforced the importance of Dublin Racing Festival for the industry and racegoers alike." Our photographer Darren Kinsella was there to capture some of the action.

Campaign success for Give Paw IRELAND’S largest pet retailer, Maxi Zoo, has announced that its annual ‘Friendship Connects, Give Paw’ fundraising campaign has raised a phenomenal €38,252 for charity partner, Dogs Trust. The campaign, which ran from October to January, was launched by
top Irish Model and TV personality Glenda Gilson and her very own fourlegged friend, Yazz. The funds raised in the campaign’s fourth year saw Maxi Zoo sell limited edition ‘Give Paw’ bracelets for €2.50 each across their 20 stores nationwide, with 100 percent of the proceeds
going to Dogs Trust. These vital funds will now be used to provide all of the dogs in the Dogs Trust rehoming centre with the resources they so deserve, from food and dog treats, to interactive toys. “As a true dog lover I’m delighted to have been part of this campaign
which raised an incredible amount of money for Dogs Trust,” said Glenda Gilson. “Every dog deserves a second chance and Dogs Trust works so hard to find them their forever home, which is why this campaign was so special.” Anthony Cremin, Marketing Manager of

Maxi Zoo Ireland said the pet retailer was grateful to everyone who supported the ‘Give Paw’ campaign. “We are very pleased to be able to contribute the outstanding amount of €38,252 to our very deserving charity partner,” he said. “As a nation of pet lovers, it’s no surprise that the public really gets behind this campaign every year, so we’d like to thank our customers, first and foremost, for helping us to make a real difference in this way.” Louise Sherwin, Philanthropy and Corporate Fundraising at Dogs Trust, said the canine charity was thrilled
- 23 %
with the amount the campaign raised for the dogs and puppies in its rehoming centre. “Maxi Zoo shares our passion for giving our dogs the very best care we can, and their efforts, and those of their customers, will go a long way towards ensuring that the dogs in our care are as happy and comfortable as possible,” she added. “On behalf of all our furry friends here in Dogs Trust, I extend our sincerest thanks to all those who supported this amazing Maxi Zoo campaign.” ‘ Friendship Connects, Give Paw’ is an annual campaign that is run
by Maxi Zoo and the Fressnapf Group across Europe. The 2019 campaign raised a total €1.3 million for animal charities across Europe. Maxi Zoo has over 175 employees in 20 stores across Ireland.

The Dublin People Newspaper has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogs. Top dog this week is Sonny, an older gentleman (nine years young), but don't be fooled; this handsome man has bundles of energy. He loves to play with his toys but also loves a good cuddle, he is super friendly both with dogs and people, so it's important Sonny lives with another dog! Sonny's ideal home would be with a family with another dog for him to play with and cuddle up to, he also loves children but given his exuberance, there is a potential for him to bowl smaller children over. As Sonny loves attention so much, he would struggle being left been alone for long periods, so he is looking for a home where this won’t happen. If you have room in your heart and home for Sonny then contact Dogs Trust on 01-8791000.

(Left and above) Some of the participants who took part in the Walking Football Festival.
Northsiders step up to the plate for Walking Football Festival 2020 FINGAL County Council, in partnership with the FAI, hosted its first Walking Football Festival of 2020 in the new state of the art pitch at the National Sports Campus Indoor Arena in Abbottstown. Over 120 players took part on the day which saw teams from Blanchardstown, Santry, Balbriggan, Coolock, Finglas, Cabra, Drogheda, Offaly, Celbridge, Naas and Arklow playing off in three groups with qualification for semi-finals
and finals. Kildare Celtic won, beating Celbridge on penalties in the all-Kildare Derby final. Speaking about the festival, Mayor of Fingal Cllr Eoghan O’Brien said: “It is great to see so many people over 50 interested in taking part in sport and keeping active. The growing number of people interested in Walking Football shows how popular and worthwhile this event is.” Local FAI/Fingal County Council
Development Officer Paul Breen said: “Fourteen teams participated in a fantastic day’s football, proving you are never too old to enjoy the beautiful game. “Targeted for the over 50s, walking football is a great way for people to keep both physically and socially active, whilst enjoying the game. "As numbers are now growing, our aim is to segment groups into two Divisions; 50 to 60 and over 60s.” FAI Grassroots Manager Gerry
Reardon said: “Developing this format, we look forward to another festival in approximately six weeks’ time, where we will segment age-groups for the first time. We plan to have two age groups: 50s and 60s+. "We believe this could be a new recruitment tool to bolster numbers as teams previously made up of players of both ages, will now have to go looking for mates to fulfil the two age groups. “There is also an all-Wexford
Festival planned for February 28 and discussions for walking football to be part of the Street Football Festival in Galway in March." Anybody who has an interest in Walking Football or would like more details of where matches takes place in their local area should contact FAI Grassroots Manager Gerry Reardon on email@example.com or FAI/Fingal Development Officer Paul Breen on firstname.lastname@example.org
Fitness challenge is launched THE link between childhood fitness and long-term physical and mental health is the key focus of this year’s Irish Life Health Schools’ Fitness Challenge. The goal is to educate and equip young people with the skills and knowledge to incorporate exercise into their daily routine to help improve and maintain both physical and mental health. Prof. Niall Moyna, DCU, who oversees the Challenge, said: “Over the last eight years, the Irish Life Health Schools’ Fitness Challenge has proven that substantial improvements in cardiovascular fitness can occur after as little as six weeks of regular exercise. “A recent study carried out over five weeks where participants took part in low to moderate exercise
saw a significant reduction in depression and anxiety. “Aside from the obvious physical health benefits of physical activity, it is proven to also have a positive impact on mental wellbeing. “It is vital that we place a greater emphasis on exercise in secondary schools especially as children progress through school when exam and other social pressures increase.” Mary-Kate Slattery, Law student and amateur boxer, hopes that highlighting the long-term health benefits of fitness will encourage secondary school students to take part. “I personally struggled with mental health during my early teenage years,” said Ms Slattery. “I truly realised the power of physical
movement as a form of stress release when I started boxing. It gives me such relief, allows me to express myself and to escape day-to-day stresses and overall, I feel stronger both physically and mentally. “If my story can inspire even one student to get involved in sport or any form of movement, I would be delighted.” Irish Life Health campaign partner Thomas Barr said exercising benefits your physical health as well as your mental wellbeing. “I’ve always used my athletics as a break from studying - nothing cleared my head like getting out for a training session with my friends,” he said.

Dublin city businesses are tapping into charity campaign CHRISTMAS may be over, but the giving hasn’t stopped thanks to DublinTown, Visa and local Dublin City Centre businesses, who together raised €21,000 for charity. The money raised from the DublinTown Visa ‘Tap to Give for Good’ festive charity partnership has been handed over to Focus Ireland, the ISPCC and Little Blue Heroes who act in service of the city’s most vulnerable and sick children and families. Each charity received €7,000. In December, Dublin
Town and Visa joined forces to create a new ‘Tap to Give for Good’ festive charity partnership which made it easy for Dublin City visitors to give to deserving children and family charities during the festive season and into the new year. Donations were made through contactless donation devices powered by Visa and hosted in participating businesses, and at the DublinTown Visa ‘Tap to Give for Good’ Christmas Bus. In addition, 1,000 toys were given to Focus Ireland
to distribute to children without a home. The toys were purchased using €7,500 in funds donated by Starbucks. The campaign saw 20 businesses host a contactless donation device in store, allowing shoppers to instantly donate amounts of €3, €5, €10 or €20 to charity, simply by tapping their card or mobile device at the point of sale. Following the campaign’s success DublinTown and Visa are making the ‘Tap to Give for Good’ charity partnership a yearlong

Contactless donation devices will be in 20 businesses across the city throughout the year, and all money raised will be distributed equally to the chosen charity beneficiaries at the end of the year. DublinTown chief executive Richard Guiney said they were delighted to have been involved in this initiative. “Not only was Dublin City Centre’s business community,
and its customers, able to assist three very worthy charitable organisations, but we have demonstrated the willingness of both the business community and the public to embrace contactless technology as the future for payments,” said Mr Guiney. “Following the success of the campaign, DublinTown and our members are committed to host the charitable contactless payment terminals all year round, bringing the
benefits to these worthy causes and cementing Dublin’s reputation as a generous, forward looking city of which we can all be proud.” Philip Konopik, Country Manager, Ireland at Visa, added: “We were delighted to partner with DublinTown to make it easier and more convenient for consumers to donate to deserving charities over the festive season. “Contactless payments
are more popular than ever before in Ireland, and with the support of participating merchants and retailers across the capital, we tapped into the consumer preference for digital payments and made a positive contribution to the ‘Tap to Give for Good’ campaign. “Our charity partners will benefit greatly from this donation, and we would like to thank shoppers for their generosity over the Christmas period.”

BUSINESSES and workers in Dublin are being encouraged to donate blood this spring under a new initiative between Dublin Chamber and the Irish Blood Transfusion Service (IBTS). The Chamber, which represents 1,300 companies in Dublin, has teamed up with IBTS to promote the BloodWorks initiative, which encourages companies, both big and small, to facilitate their staff to donate blood during working hours. The partnership was announced at a blood drive being held by Vodafone and IBTS at the Vodafone’s headquarters in Leopardstown. Vodafone’s employees have been donating blood during working hours for many years. Dublin Chamber chief executive Mary Rose Burke said she hoped the partnership would raise awareness of the importance of donating blood and encourage more businesses to organise group blood
donations. “One in four people will need a blood transfusion at some point in their lives,” she said. “However, only 3 percent of the eligible population are currently donating blood. We are proud to support this initiative to promote blood donation among businesses in the Greater Dublin Region and we encourage all businesses to get involved to ensure a stable and regular supply of blood over the coming months.” The IBTS regularly holds blood donation days in the premises of large companies around Ireland. Irish Blood Transfusion Service chief executive Andy Kelly said: “Whether a business is big or small, we want to make it their business to give blood. The IBTS greatly appreciates the support it receives from businesses in Dublin. “There are 251 companies who actively participate in our Bloodworks programme

Now the Korean electric. company are also one of the leaders in the sales of electric cars here. I was very impressed with the range of approximately 450km in the Hyundai Kona which I drove last year. Named after the Kona district on the Big Island of Hawaii, the Kona continued Hyundai’s new dynamic design identity and dedication to class leading technology. Last week I got to test the revamped version of Hyundai’s Ionic, where the range is around 290km. The Kona will cost you almost 40k, while the Ionic price is €34,850. Last year the Government announced ambitious plans to have one million electric cars on Irish roads by the year 2030. There are approximately
There were suggestions that the Government would ban petrol and diesel cars after 2030, but as an opposition TD correctly pointed out we no longer have a motor manufacturing business in Ireland, so no Irish
Government can make that claim. Ultimately any decisions about ending petrol and diesel cars will be made by the mass manufacturers. The prices will have to drop a lot more, batteries will have to be improved

NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST 12.02.20 items you can sell, items for donating, gifting or recycling, and, finally, things to dump! Check the attic too for stored items you’d forgotten about. DUMP, DONATE OR RECYCLE Charities like Age Action and NCBI collect furniture and household items in good condition for resale. Honestly assess what will fit in your new home and what will suit the new space, passing on anything you can live without. Selling online or offering items to friends is also a good idea, but get them to collect the items well ahead of moving day. Posting unwanted things on websites like FreetradeIreland and Jumbletown, to take away free, can help find a new home for them. STORAGE SOLUTIONS If there isn’t the time or the inclination to declutter ahead of a move, look at local storage solutions. Dublin-based Buska Boxes, www.buska.ie, has storage options, by the box or item, from €25 a month. DOCUMENTS Pack your most important documents in a safe, accessible place. This includes passports, driving licenses, birth certificates, social welfare or other ID cards, insurance papers and financial statements or account books. EMPTY THE FRIDGE Disconnect your fridge and defrost the freezer at least a day before moving, draining liquid. Use up store cupboard food. Food shopping should be on a daily basis in the week ahead of a move; a fridge full of groceries is not going to survive transit! MINDERS For same-area moves, or even long haul, get a minder for the children and pets; overnight ideally. No matter how well behaved they are normally, they will get in the way. The last thing you need is to lose track of the kids or dog on what can be a tiring and stressful day. Just remember to come back for them! PICTURE PERFECT If renting, photograph your cleaned-out old home and your new home before moving in, just in case a question around the condition of the property pops up at a later stage. It can help to secure a deposit back, and avoid headaches with difficult landlords.
Carefully plan which items need to be moved, and which can be recycled or given away.
Good planning will ensure the move goes as smoothly as possible.

What does your furniture choice really say about you? EVER hear the phrase ‘dress how you want to be addressed’? When we get dressed every day it can be a direct reflection of how we feel, what our schedules might entail, and even reflect our personality. Ever notice how we might dress in darker colours in winter than we do in spring? Well, if you think your clothes reflect you, imagine what your home décor says about you! It’s true what they say, when our words fail, our interior speaks for us. Today, EZ Living Furniture sheds some light on what we are saying, or in fact, not saying by the décor we choose to surround ourselves by. 1. ARE YOU BOLD? If your home is surrounded by more primary colours than neutral colours, it’s safe to say you like expressing yourself. You’re confident, loud and proud. Whereas if you’re drawn to more neutral tones and pastel shades, you’re a peacemaker at heart. You enjoy the little things in life and refrain from being the centre of attention. 2. ARE YOU A PEOPLE’S PERSON? The amount of seating areas in your home is a direct result of just how social you are. If you have multiple seating areas and even back up stools, this is a sure indication that three is far from a crowd. If you have minimal seating you are more introverted in nature and find yourself recharging in your own company. In fact two might be the perfect company. 3. ARE YOU UP THE WALLS? When people have different artwork or boards with photos and twine on their wall, it shows they welcome change. This love for change is further heightened when you’re comfortable with changing up your walls décor. 4. ARE YOU BARELY THERE? When a person is afraid of committing to something, this is often
If you’re drawn to more neutral tones and pastel shades, you’re a peacemaker at heart expressed by their lack of furniture. When they haven’t planted roots in either a job, relationship, or even house, there may be a lack of sofas, artwork, or accessories. When observing someone’s home, look for the, bare necessities, the simple bare necessities. 5. ARE YOU DRIVEN? When a person is more goal oriented they may opt for more of a theme based interior. You have drive and ambition that helps you keep up with the crowd and the latest trends. However, if your home is less theme focused and more natural,
Showcase your personality to the best of its ability
Switching art decor shows you welcome change. this may indicate that you’re more of a ‘go with the flow’ type of person are more often than not, very chill in nature. So what does your
