Cousins show solidarity for Luke   Aoife O’Brien THREE Northside cousins have decided to cut 14 inches off their hair to make wigs for children who have lost their hair as a result of cancer treatment. Lila Elliott (8), from Belmayne, Zara Shanley (10), from Swords and Sophia Nolan (10), from Balbriggan, decided

to cut their hair for wigs after Zara’s older brother, Luke, was diagnosed with a brain tumour last April. Luke, who was only 12 when diagnosed with his illness, had his first surgery on Good Friday in 2019. He underwent chemotherapy and shaved his head after his hair started to fall out. In solidarity, a number

of Luke’s friends also shaved their heads and his sister Zara and cousin Sophia shaved the corner of one side of their heads. However, when Luke had to undergo another surgery last November to remove some more tumour and was told he would have to do another year of chemotherapy

starting in January, the three girls decided they wanted to do something more. After deciding to cut their hair to make wigs they also decided to set up a GoFundMe account to raise funds for Barretstown children’s charity.

New playgrounds open in Ireland’s youngest town BALBRIGGAN has received a major boost following the opening of two new playgrounds in the town. Mayor of Fingal Cllr Eoghan O’Brien, in the company of Fingal County Council chief executive AnnMarie Farrelly, officially opened the Bandstand playground near the Martello Tower and Quay Street playground. The amenities got a joyous seal of approval from the enthusiastic children at St Molaga’s

National School on the day. Also in attendance at the opening were members of the Balbriggan Playground Committee and local councillors Tony Murphy (Ind) and Gráinne Maguire (Ind) and former councillor Malachy Quinn (SF), who were very involved with the project from the beginning. The playgrounds were designed to provoke children’s imagination and fit into the landscape and resulted from extensive consultation and

engagement with the local community. The Bandstand Playground design has taken inspiration from its location overlooking Balbriggan harbour with a nautical theme including a replica of the iconic lighthouse, and the Quay Street design has also taken inspiration from its location beside the railway viaduct to inspire a railway themed playground. The council said it recognises the significant benefit of investing in children’s play as one of the important things to improve children’s health and wellbeing.  Speaking at the launch, Mayor O’Brien said: “I am

delighted to be back in Balbriggan launching these playgrounds after having launched the new town Skatepark late last year. “These new play facilities are part of the response by Fingal County Council to address the deficit of infrastructure in Balbriggan.” Mayor O’Brien added that it was wonderful to see the excitement of the children from St Molaga’s trying out the playgrounds at the launch. Ms Farrelly commended Kevin Halpenny and the Parks’ team at the council for meeting the challenge of delivering the projects in the first 12 months Fingal Mayor Eoghan O’Brien pictured with children at the official opening of the of the Our Balbriggan new Bandstand playground in Balbriggan.

Cousins show solidarity for Luke   Continued from front The charity, which offers specially designed camps and programmes for children and their families living with a serious illness, invited Luke and his family to the facility last year. According to Luke’s aunt, Lisa Green, whose daughter Lila is one of the girls raising money for Barretstown, “the trip is something the family really needed and the support they received there was astounding” so it was the natural choice of charity to support. However, this is not the first time the family have raised money for a charity who have supported them through their difficult journey.

PREPARATIONS for St Patrick’s Day in Fingal are underway with seven parades organised across the county. Malahide is set to host its first parade, which will take place at 12noon on March 17. The parades will yet again be lively celebrations of all things Irish and a fun day out is promised for everyone. Over 100,000 residents are expected to attend the parades, while over 15,000 people will participate alongside up to 1,000 community organisations and businesses in the parades.

This will be a huge boost to local economies as thousands of people will be packing the streets. Mayor of Fingal Cllr Eoghan O’Brien said St Patrick’s Day is a significant cultural event and the parades allow Fingal residents to celebrate it in their own communities. “The parades are an opportunity for residents to see and engage with local community groups and businesses in their area,” he said. “I look forward to attending the parades in Fingal and seeing all the diverse and creative

floats this year. I would particularly like to welcome the addition of Malahide to the Fingal St Patrick’s calendar.” The history of Balbriggan will be front and centre in their parade this year with the theme being the ‘Sacking of Balbriggan’, which took place a 100 years ago. Fingal County Council operates the three parades in Swords, Balbriggan and Blanchardstown while financially and operationally supporting all seven parades. The council has engaged Davis Events to deliver the 2020 parades.

Being kind is just basic common decency TONY McCULLAGH Editor Dublin People Group t.mccullagh@dublinpeople.com

THE #BeKind hashtag was all over social media in the aftermath of the tragic death of Caroline Flack, the former ‘Love Island’ presenter who took her own life earlier this month Being kind is hardly a new concept; it’s something that every parent should instil in their children from a very young age. I remember seeing the legendary Leonard Cohen perform in Dublin in his later years.

His parting words to the audience that night were two simple words that have a powerful resonance when put together – ‘Be Kind’. It seems it was far easier to be kind in the days before social media. Even if you weren’t crazy about a certain individual, social convention dictated that you wouldn’t be unnecessarily cruel when in their company. But social media has reprogrammed our moral codes and caused – or, perhaps, highlighted – widespread behavioural dysfunction. Those you might had previously considered as right-thinking people can direct the most hateful, hurtful and often slanderous comments at their targets, be they so-called ‘friends’, celebrities or politicians, often under the

PHOTO POSED cowardly cloak of anonymity. Last week, one former politician deleted his Twitter account after receiving a deluge of abuse when he lost his seat in the general election. A number of former female TDs also spoke out about the vile comments they had been subjected to during the campaign. When there’s a tragic death, like Caroline Flack’s, social media users bend over backwards to undo the damage and purge any internal guilt

they feel by including well-meaning but ultimately useless hashtags in their posts. Even though we try to teach our kids about acceptable behaviour on social media and the dangers posed by internet bullying, there are world leaders like Donald Trump using Twitter to spew out childish insults to their critics. In Ireland, we have politicians who have had to apologise for inappropriate social media comments.

With social media companies seemingly unable to regulate themselves, it is up to parents and educators to be the moral compass for a generation that seems oblivious to the consequences of posting hurtful or offensive comments online. Our young people need to be reminded that every ill-judged post could come back to haunt them in the future, damaging their career, ruining their reputation and causing untold pain or even death.

5 Reasons why you should invest in your Bedroom with EZ Living Furniture: Whether you love your bedroom or your bedroom is in need of a little extra loving, EZ Living Furniture are here to tell you just how important investing in your bedroom can be. We spend one third of our lives asleep and yet we don’t give our sleeping space the attention it both needs or deserves. Here are the top 5 reasons to rethink and revamp your bedroom in order to change every part of your life!

1. YOUR MATTRESS MATTERS!

By investing in a good quality mattress, you’re investing in yourself. We often underestimate the power of those last minute snoozes before we rise and take on the day. A good night’s sleep will not only depict your mood for the day, but also your work ethic, energy, and above all the quality of both your day and life.

2. A HEAVENLY HAVEN!

We’ve all had days where we just want to come home, and escape to our cave without being disrupted. Well, if we are going

to escape, we may as well escape with style! Having a place to call your own will not only allow you to unwind after a long day, but it can also play a massive role in how you both think and feel. Surround yourself with colours and objects that will make you feel relaxed, and more importantly, at home.

3. BORING LEADS TO SNORING (AND NOT THE GOOD KIND!)

Sick of your bedroom interi-

or? Why not add a funky rug or a new headboard? Sometimes it’s the littlest of details that make a lasting impact.

4. FOR THE FUTURE!

One of the most basic reasons to invest in your bedroom is to think of your future self! There’s no point investing in cheap or “fast furniture” time and time again if you are continuously replacing it. It’s a human need to want to feel that what we spend significant money on is going to

withstand the test of time. Invest in quality furniture today at EZ Living Furniture.

5. BECAUSE YOU’RE WORTH IT! Read that again.

MINISTER FINIAN McGRATH SAYS THANK YOU

Minister Finian McGrath (Ind) has warmly thanked the people for their support over four Dáil elections and one city Council election. He said it was a great honour and privilege to serve. He paid particular tribute to Councillor Damian O’Farrell, his election staff and supporters. He commended them for their dedication and work. It was way above the call of duty. Minister McGrath said his political record shows that he has been radical, pragmatic, open and always willing to take responsibility to serve his constituents. He negotiated Programme Government Agreements with four different Taoisigh during his twenty one years in public office. In 2016, with the support of his election team and his Independent Alliance colleagues he made the decision to become a member of Government and more significantly to sit at Cabinet as Minister for Disabilities. This position at the ‘top political table’ has enabled him to achieve the following: • • • • • • • • • • •

A Disability Budget of over €2.0billion in 2020, showing a 7% funding increase (€133.7m) Opening of 12 new respite houses Ratification of the UN Convention for the Rights of People with Disabilities Extension of Medical Card for 11,000 children in receipt of the Domiciliary Care Allowance Restoration of the Carer’s Grant to 101,000 families Introduction of Personal Budget demonstration projects with 180 adults thus far De-congregation- 528 people moved to smaller community homes with supports Filling of 100 additional Assessment of Need therapy posts €60.0 million for Capital Projects at Beaumont Hospital (€10.5m CFI Unit // €50.0m new A&E) €14.0 million Housing Adaption Grants €16.0 million ‘Ability Programme’ funding for young adults in 27 new projects.

There is still so much more to do to support people with disabilities and their families. His 2016 insistence that a Minister for Disabilities would be appointed to Cabinet was crucial and raised the status of the portfolio. He now challenges all political leaders to retain a Cabinet position for the Disabilities Ministry in any future government. He wouldalso like to thank all the elected representatives and government members he has worked with over the years and he wishes them well. He has also worked with many superb and hardworking public servants and he would like to extend his gratitude to them for their work and support. He said he has been very fortunate to have the best election team, supporters and neighbours and he wishes to express his sincere gratitude to each one of them. The Minister also remembers his late wife Anne at this time for her unwavering support often against her better judgement. He thanks his two daughters Caoimhe and Cliodhna and his son-in law Niall and grandchildren for all their support and the love they bring into his life. He would also like to thank his brothers and sisters, their families and Anne’s family for their support. Finally the Minister said, above all, it was a privilege to serve his constituents in Dublin Bay North and he would like to humbly send a heartfelt thank you to every person who voted for him at any time during his political career. Thank you. “ I did my best” said Finian.

Residents to discuss options following planning decision Aoife O’Brien CLONTARF Residents’ Association has issued a statement following An Bord Pleanála’s decision to grant planning permission for 657 apartments on the St Paul’s playing fields beside St Anne’s Park in Raheny. It reads: “We are surprised and disappointed at the decision of An Bord Pleanala to grant permission (dated 13th February 2020) for this development. “This decision goes against the recommendation of Dublin City Council and appears to be in direct conflict with the Board’s recent decision to refuse the school’s application for permission for a sports hall and all-weather pitch on the adjoining lands. “It is difficult to understand how the Board could have reached two

such differing decisions within a week of each other on what was originally the same site. “We will be discussing our options with our legal team and issue another statement in due course.” Permission was granted for the development despite Dublin City Council recommending it be refused. The plans for the 657 apartments and a creche are “not considered to be consistent with the Dublin City Development Plan”, according to Dublin City Council, and have been heavily protested by local residents and politicians. Last month a council report said there were “significant and outstanding biodiversity issues” and they sought assurances that the development would not affect protected species in the area. The lands which run

along the historic main avenue of St Anne’s Park, are recognised as the most important ex-situ feeding site for the protected migratory light bellied Brent geese who winter on Bull Island according to the ‘I love St Anne’s group. These birds and their welfare are protected under EU legislation and favour this site because it is separated from the park by a fence which offers protection from predators. The appeals board had received more then 650 objections against the proposed development on the land which is designated by Dublin City Council to protect and provide for institutional and community use. Under the Government's 'fast track' planning rules, Marlet's Crekav Trading was seeking a 10-year permission to construct 657 apartments on the St Anne’s site.

Boost for charities KANE KITCHENS Est. 1972

EMPLOYEES of the Dublin Airport Authority (daa), supported by the company and members of the public, raised a total of €330,000 for the daa’s three charity partners last year. Staff raised the money for Debra Ireland, Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre and Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus through a series of events and the company also made a significant contribution to the fund. Members of the public also supported the scheme through collection points throughout the airport for passenger donations. Each charity was presented with a cheque for €110,000 from daa. Debra Ireland said it was “completely overwhelmed and in awe of daa staff,” while the Gary Kelly Cancer Support Centre described the €110,000 cheque as “mind-blowing” adding that it would allow it to “future proof” its services.

Top of an impressive pile is ‘Dark Waters’ starring Mark Ruffalo as a battling attorney who takes on US corporate giant, DuPont, in a terrifyingly true, real life story of the little guy taking on big business.

MacKay of ‘1917’ fame. It’s a story that’s been told many times before, but this is a fresh and anarchic punk version with a kicking soundtrack and a striking visual. Top performances from Nicholas Hoult and Russel Crowe also make this offering well worth the ticket price. And finally to the hot air of Steve Coogan’s character in ‘Greed’, a Michael Winterbottom film about the excesses of capitalism and the obscene nature of wealth versus poverty. Coogan plays fictional billionaire clothing tycoon Richard MacCreadie, who is planning his 60th birthday on a Greek Island where some

pans, you weren’t really paying attention. We award it a review score of four, non-stick stars. ‘Portrait of a Lady on Fire’ comes a close second, and is a superbly shot and observed French period piece about a young female portrait artist who is sent to capture the likeness of someone (her reluctant client) who doesn’t want to be painted. Directed and written by Celine Sciamma, think ‘Little Women’ with story, nudity and depth. For the element of earth we must travel to the sun scorched land of the Australian outback and ‘The True History of the Kelly Gang’ starring the excellent George

unfortunate immigrants have simultaneously managed to wash up. It could have struck the wrong tone between comedy and social commentary, but it just about manages to deliver the jokes while making a strong statement on sweatshop labour as well.

LOCAL families are being urged to take part in an event this week that promotes engineering as a career and the importance of the profession to Ireland. STEPS Engineers Week is taking place from Saturday, February 29 to Friday, March 6.  The initiative is coordinated by Engineers Ireland's STEPS programme - funded by Science Foundation Ireland, the Department of Education and Skills and industry leaders ARUP, ESB, Intel and Transport Infrastructure Ireland (TII). In Dublin, on Saturday, 29 February and Sunday, 1 March, Engineers Ireland, the professional membership body for engineers, will open its headquarters in Ballsbridge for two days of hands-on activities and workshops led by Explorium, Scientific Sue and Silly Billy. The Reptile Zoo and Whizz Kids will also offer workshops and learning experiences throughout the weekend for a nominal fee of €5 per child. Every parent and child who attends the

STEPS Engineers Week Family Fair in Dublin will also be provided with complimentary tickets to visit Explorium in Sandyford during Engineers Week to engage in further STEM activities. Caroline Spillane, Director General of Engineers Ireland, said: “The STEPS Engineers Week Family Fairs in Dublin, Cork, Galway and Sligo will bring the fascinating world of engineering to life and provide parents and children with the opportunity to dream, invent and create like professional engineers. “Engineering is more than just bridges and structures, engineers are responsible for designing and creating the technology behind virtual reality, the invisible technology that supports our daily lives and finding solutions to tackle climate change. “I would encourage families to attend a Family Fair and find out more about how Irish engineers are pushing the limits of innovation.” For more information about the event, visit: https://www. engineersweek.ie/family-

Are pets a woman’s best friend? SOME say diamonds are a woman’s best friend, but for Noelle Long, Director of Purchasing and Marketing at Maxi Zoo Ireland, pets get the vote when it comes to VBFs Noelle was recognised

for her stellar work in the pet industry at the Irish Women’s Awards in the Blanchardstown Crowne Plaza Hotel in Dublin on January 29, nabbing the prestigious Rising Star Award. Working her way up the organisation

from administration in Maxi Zoo’s Head Office, based in Cork, Noelle moved into a purchasing role and now heads up the marketing and purchasing teams and sits on the board of directors of Ireland’s

largest pet retailer. Maxi Zoo, who are known for their community and animal welfare focused campaigns, have 20 stores in Ireland employing almost 200 staff members. In 2019 they raised

almost €40,000 for Dogs Trust Ireland by selling Friendship Connects bracelets in their shops. They also distributed 1.5 million poo bags to help clean up dog fouling across the

country as part of their Scoop the Poop campaign. With Maxi Zoo’s expansion plans at the forefront of their minds, it looks like the company have the right driving force behind

them in the form of rising star Noelle. Learn more about Maxi Zoo by visiting their Facebook or Instagram channels @ maxizooireland or visit the Maxi Zoo Ireland Facebook Page.

The Dublin People Newspaper Group has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogs. Top dog this week is Enzo, an extremely affectionate three-yearold crossbreed who just loves rubs and cuddles. He is instantly friendly with everyone he meets but can be a bit picky with other dogs, preferring doggie pals who are calm and don't interact too much. In his past life, he was quite the accomplished escape artist, so his future adopters will need to be mindful of this and keep a very close eye on him. Although his sweet, friendly nature would make him an ideal family pet he is quite strong and could potentially knock over very small children in his enthusiasm. If you have room in your heart and home for Enzo, thencontact Dogs Trust on 01-8791000.

Dogs Trust is based in Finglas, just off exit 5 on the M50. Map and directions can be found on their website at www.dogstrust.ie. You can also pop up for a visit. Dogs Trust is open six days a week from 12-4pm. The centre is closed all day Tuesday. You can also find Dogs Trust on Facebook at www.facebook. com/dogstrustireland or Twitter @DogsTrust_IE.

Cardiologist’s heartfelt thanks after airport workers save his life DUBLIN Airport’s defibrillator CPR programme has helped save the life of a consultant cardiologist. The airport’s advanced paramedics were tested recently when a passenger arriving from the UK experienced a serious cardiac event in Terminal 2. Dr Farqad Alamgir, who is a consultant interventional cardiologist, was travelling from Manchester to Dublin Airport on a regular trip to Ireland, where he works in a number of hospitals, when he took ill. He was initially tended to by an Aer Lingus staff member who administered CPR until Airport Police and Fire Service responders arrived. The airport’s advanced paramedics administered life-saving drugs at the scene before transferring Dr Alamgir to the Mater

Hospital, where he underwent emergency heart bypass surgery. Dr Alamgir has worked for 30 years resuscitating many patients who present with acute heart attacks, but never imagined he would find himself on the other side of the fence. “I remember getting off the aircraft at Dublin Airport, then the next memory I have is waking up in the Coronary Care Unit in the Mater Hospital,” said Dr Alamgir. “I now know that Dublin Airport’s first responders used the Lucas CPR system giving me four shocks initially, then the skills of their Advanced Paramedic team administered urgent advanced life-saving drugs via an intraosseous needle into my shin, bringing me back after 17 minutes of downtime. “The speed of the response not only saved my life, but the

resuscitation was so effective that I have not suffered any neurological or cardiac muscle damage.” Dr Alamgir said, he was “so grateful and thankful to the team at Dublin Airport, the ambulance crews and the team at the Mater for giving me another opportunity to spend more time with my family”. Dublin Airport Chief Fire Officer Gerry Keogh said it is hugely rewarding and humbling when a passenger walks through the door to thank the team for saving their life. “Our defibrillator programme began in 2003 and since then we have increased our defibrillator numbers to over 50 around the airport’s campus,” said Mr Keogh. “We also have two fully-trained advanced paramedics and two in training, and their new

delighted to welcome Dr Alamgir back to Dublin Airport. It’s a testament to the training, professionalism and team

work of the airport’s first responders that he was in a position to come back and meet those who saved his life.

“Every life saved by the defibrillator programme had a profoundly positive impact on a wide range of people.”

The next Government must listen to senior citizens’ voices

Pictured at the Ageing Better campaign outside Leinster House in the week leading up to the general election were Maureen Kavanagh, chief executive of Active Retirement Ireland and Paddy Connolly, chief executive of Age Action, with Carmel Carroll, Geraldine Murphy, Peggy Mickey, Michael Maher, Paddy Becton, Marie Caffrey and Christine Ryan. PHOTO: MARC O’SULLIVAN

IN the lead up to the general election, held earlier this month, perhaps one of the surprising issues was the debate about the retirement age. Prior to the election result, Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald vowed that her party would “legislate to return the age of eligibility for a State pension to 65 within the first 100 days of being in Government”. Subsequently, Deputy McDonald’s party enjoyed a stunning election result but at the time of going to press, a new Government had not been formed and it may take weeks, if not months, of protracted negotiations. The Social Democrats also reiterated their strong support for the retirement age campaign to stop the increase in

the State pension age to 67 years from next year and subsequently to 68. At the time, co-leader Roisin Shortall said: “Increasing the pension age would have a disproportionately negative impact on low-income pensioners who depend entirely on the State pension as their sole income.” Did this issue have a bearing on the overall election result? Also in the build up to General Election 2020, Active Retirement Ireland and Age Action called on parties with ambition to be in Government to outline how they would ensure an all-of-Government approach to ageing.

20 GOLDEN YEARS

NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST 26.02.20

Enjoying those golden years RETIREMENT isn’t the end: it’s only the beginning! Okay, it’s the end of one phase of your life, work, but all those things you’ve always wanted to do, but didn’t have the time, are now within your grasp. After working hard over many years to earn your retirement you should now take the opportunity to enjoy it. Thankfully in our local communities there is a great variety of activities all year round for older persons to participate in and continue to live life to the maximum. It’s a well-known fact that we’re living longer. This can be attributed to a number of reasons including positive lifestyle changes, better outcomes when we have health issues, greater detection of potential illnesses through screening programmes that are well advertised, excellent community groups like the Irish Countrywomen’s Association (IWA),

Men’s Shed movement, Age Friendly clubs and University of the Third Age (U3A) groups, to name but a few.     One of the great success stories in modern times is Age & Opportunity’s Bealtaine Festival which is held every year throughout the month of May. Every year, Age & Opportunity invites local authorities, arts centres, libraries, Active Retirement groups, care settings, community groups, clubs and associations from every part of the country to run Bealtaine events that celebrate creativity for people as they age. The festival, which began in 1996, continues to flourish with greater participation year on year and long may that continue. Another big event is Positive Ageing Week (PAW), which celebrates ageing and the older people in our lives by highlighting the

Acquiring computer skills has opened up a whole new world for seniors. PHOTO: BIOGSTOCK contribution they make to our families and our communities. The focus is on community-based events, organised by groups and

& Bowling Workshops, Memoir Writing Classes, Historical and Forest Walks, Excursions, Dancercise and Chair Zumba, Scrabble, Chess, Bridge and Boggle Clubs, Coffee Mornings, Afternoon Tea Dances and Ceol agus Craic Evenings. Another excellent event held annually is the Silver Surfer Awards where Age Action searches for people over 50 who are going online and mastering new technologies. Although a lot of older persons don’t use the internet, ‘Silver Surfers’, since the initiative was established, have overcome the challenge of learning something new and are now expert googlers, skypers and tweeters. Whether it’s keeping in touch with grandchildren overseas, paying bills, starting your own blog or researching your passion, the competition aims to highlight the achievements of the over 50s in Ireland.

And when it comes to helping senior citizens develop their online skills, students at local schools have really come to the fore. For example, every Friday the Transition Year students at St Mary’s Secondary School, Baldoyle, offer free oneto-one Computer Classes to senior citizens. All learners, complete beginners and upwards, are welcome. Topics vary according to request but participants can learn: sending and receiving emails, adding an attachment to an email, paying bills, shopping online, booking flights, using Skype, searching the internet, Social Media and much more. For more information contact Mr Ryan at St Mary’s Secondary School on 01-8325591. So whatever your passion or interest is, you now have your golden years to realise those longheld ambitions!

and mid-century Italian design Domhnaill travels extensively seeking out the best pieces for interior designers and private clients. “Italian sideboards are generally large and very sleek and stylish. “Often made in rosewood they can include delicate and decorative inlays. “The designers we work with are always on the look-out for these pieces as a finely designed midcentury sideboard can become the central focus point of a space helping create a beautiful room around it.” For Killian McNulty, size really does matter when it comes to stylish sideboards. “For people with smaller houses and new apartments, size is a priority which is why we stock smaller versions (under 1.6m) of the larger sideboards. “They are very cute, so you get most of the bang for less of the buck. “Their simple design can be extremely effective. “They might look like a plain Jane but they really work.” Along with providing attractive storage space for things you don’t want to be seen - crockery, drinks cabinet, children’s toys etc, sideboards also offer a brilliant surface for the things you do want to show off. “Lamps, sculpture, artwork and other treasures will all sit quite happily on your sideboard while a whole host of household essentials can also be hidden away,” said Domhnaill Ó Gairbhí. McNulty, who focuses on 1960s and ‘70s sideboards from British company G Plan and Scottish brand McIntosh, maintains they are the perfect marriage between form and function. “A sideboard can be a really attractive piece that anchors and balances a room while being a very useful piece of furniture that helps you live your life,” McNulty adds. And he believes strongly that a treasure from the past can find itself very much at home in a contemporary space. “The amazing thing about mid-century sideboards is that while they are often 40 to 60

to edge’ glazing style with a very sleek high-end look that includes flush glazing, bonded glass and a silkysmooth finish inside and out,” says Toal. “Unlike conventional doors Silka’s glass panels, with stainless steel or glass trims, are entirely embedded in the structure. “You can have several finishes including horizontal carbon lines, similar to panels on a conventional door however; these are embedded so the surface is entirely smooth.” With Silka, even the door handle says style in a long cylinder of brushed steel - should you prefer that to the more conventional type. Determined to impress, Silka doors are also available in larger widths and slightly larger heights than standard models. “Silka doors can be custom-built to size, with an opening up to a meter wide,” Toal explains. Maintenance free, their hi-tech fiberglass construction makes Silka doors very strong and energy efficient. Made in Ireland they are also said to use less energy in their manufacturing. But front doors require more than just a pretty face and green credentials, they need to work on a number of other levels too. So security and energy efficiency are very much part of the Silka package, which includes a range of high-spec, police backed security features and the most efficient A energy rating. Available in a choice of colours including black, anthracite grey, light grey, cream and white, Silka doors can also be dark on the outside with a lighter shade inside to complement your décor. “These doors have a wow factor. Sunlight bounces off their sleek smooth textures, bonded glass and steel to reflect light in different and interesting ways,” says Toal. So, if you are in search of the ultimate calling card for your home entrance you could find just what you are looking for with the Silka door range at the Fairco Window and Doors showrooms in Santry and Fairco’s new Deansgrange showroom opening this month.

Dublin companies urged to become more sustainable DUBLIN Chamber has announced the creation of a new initiative to help businesses in the Dublin region to become more sustainable and reduce their carbon footprint. The Sustainability Academy was launched by new Dublin Chamber President Catherine Moroney at the Chamber's AGM Dinner, held recently. The academy is being launched in response to a demand from companies for help in preparing for a carbon neutral economy. The Chamber said the academy will help to bring Dublin companies from “aspiration to action” on climate and sustainability. The academy will offer participating businesses a comprehensive range of supports, including: training workshops, access to a dedicated series of sustainability events; green public procurement training; access to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP Ireland); support materials; and peerto-peer idea sharing opportunities. Dublin Chamber has identified a need for these supports through surveys and focus groups with companies, facilitated by Amárach Research. A number of other services will be added to the Sustainability Academy offering over the coming months as the Chamber continues to work with businesses to identify the main supports they require. Speaking at the Chamber's AGM Dinner, new Chamber President Catherine Moroney said: "There is a strong will in the business community to become more sustainable. “Dublin Chamber is determined to help businesses on that journey. Our extensive research has identified that businesses

understand they have a vital role to play in helping Ireland meet its climate targets. “We've worked closely with around 300 companies over the past six months to identify the areas in which they most need help. “What we've heard loud and clear from businesses across the board is that there is a strong desire to make real changes that will make a tangible difference to their sustainability credentials - but many of them need help in order to move to action stage."

WE’RE HIRING

HOME CARE ASSISTANTS IN:

• Malahide • Sutton • Howth • Donaghmede • Kilbarrack • Raheny • Coolock

Training and workshops will also be provided on carbonfootprinting, corporate sustainability and on the circular economy. Other core offerings will include helping participating companies, big and small, on the road toward carbon disclosure and green procurement processes. The Chamber is calling on all businesses in Dublin to get involved in the Sustainability Academy, regardless of what stage they are at on their sustainability journey.
