New survey highlights lengthy wait for eye care THE HSE is being urged to reform Irish eye care and better serve the interest of patients. The Association of Optometrists Ireland (AOI) made the call after its latest survey, carried out in April, showed that the average wait for public cataract surgery nationally is 29 months. It is also seeking a new national scheme for children’s eye care. In Dublin the Optometrists’ survey found that: •In Dublin Fingal, the waiting time for public cataract surgery was 36 months and the waiting

time for an appointment for children under 12 was 12 months; •In Dublin Bay North, the waiting time for public cataract surgery was 24 months and the waiting time for an appointment for children under 12 was eight months; and •In Dublin Central, the waiting time for public cataract surgery was 24 months and the waiting time for an appointment for children under 12 was 24 months.

New mayors take up their chains of office FINGAL County Council and Dublin City Council have announced their new mayors for a one-year term of office. Cllr Eoghan O’Brien (FF), who represents the Malahide-Howth Local Electoral Area (LEA), has been elected Mayor or Fingal while Cllr Paul McAuliffe (FF) becomes the 350th Lord Mayor of Dublin. Cllr O’Brien has been a member of Fingal County Council since 2007 when he was co-opted to fill the seat vacated by his brother Darragh following his election to Dáil Éireann. Originally from Malahide, he now lives in Kinsealy and works as a Business Development representative with FMCG. Cllr O’Brien, who was proposed and seconded by Fianna Fail party colleagues, Cllr Darragh Butler and Cllr Adrian Henchy, received 23 votes.

Cllr Tom O’Leary (FG) received seven votes, Sinn Fein Councillor Paul Donnelly received five and Cllr Paul Mulville of the Social Democrats received four. At the first meeting of the new council, tributes were paid to the outgoing Mayor, Cllr Anthony Lavin and Deputy Mayor, Cllr Grainne Maguire. Fingal County Council’s interim chief executive AnnMarie Farrelly presented Cllr Lavin with a commemorative medal and a photograph album recording his year in office. Cllr Lavin thanked Cllr Maguire for her support as Deputy Mayor during the year and also his fellow councillors and the chief executive, and council staff for all the assistance they had given him. Cllr Tom Kitt has been elected Deputy Mayor of Fingal. Cllr Kitt, who represents the Ongar Local

Electoral Area (LEA), is a new councillor who was elected for the first time last month. Cllr McAuliffe, who replaces Cllr Nial Ring (Ind) as the city’s First Citizen, was born and reared in Finglas and his family has lived in the area for more than 60 years. He was educated at De La Salle Primary School, Beneavin College Secondary School and the National College of Ireland. Cllr McAuliffe has been an elected member of Dublin City Council since 2009, where he has represented the people of Finglas, Santry, Glasnevin and Ballymun. He has also served as the chairperson of the City Council’s Enterprise and Economic Development Committee and he is a member of the sevenperson Corporate Policy Group (CPG) chaired by the Lord Mayor.

As chairperson he led the City Economic and Community Plan and published the Dublin City Brexit Summits. Outside of politics he has been actively involved in local youth and community groups and he has worked as Communication Manager with the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland and the Irish Platform for Patients' Organisations Science and Industry. Cllr Tom Brabazon (FF), who topped the poll in the recent local elections in the Donaghmede Local Electoral Area (LEA), was elected as Deputy Lord Mayor of Dublin. “This is very humbling for me and I am delighted to get this opportunity,” said Cllr Brabazon. “This is a new and exciting challenge for me and I will be assisting the new Lord Mayor Cllr Paul McAuliffe to

implement the Dublin Agreement which was hammered out between the different political groupings on Dublin City Council. “The main priorities in the agreement are Housing and the Climate Cllr Paul McAuliffe, the new Lord Mayor of Dublin. Emergency and Action.”

New survey highlights Large use lengthy wait for eye care of pepper spray is reported continued from p.1

waiting times for cataract surgery in Fingal are “out of control”. “The information from the Association of Optometrists Ireland is incredibly worrying,” she said. “Cataract procedures usually take around 10 minutes to perform, yet there are over 6,000 patients waiting on an operation across the State, with hundreds of these in Fingal. “Patients suffer when they have to wait for cataract surgery. They lose sight, they lose independence, they can have accidents from falls, and all this costs patients and the health service more.” Deputy O’Reilly said the award-winning Sligo Cataract Scheme represents a clear solution. “The Sligo-Leitrim constituency has the shortest waiting time in the State thanks to this cost-neutral scheme. This scheme needs to be rolled out nationwide.” AOI President Patricia Dunphy said the survey showed the urgent need for Minister for Health Simon Harris to intervene and overhaul eye care services. “The cause of our massive and worsening waiting times is an over-reliance on public eye clinics and hospital Ophthalmology departments to provide even the most basic care,” said Ms Dunphy. “Optometrists can provide routine eye examinations, glasses fitting, pre and postsurgery check-ups in the community. Only more complex cases need be referred to clinics or hospitals. “This is the model in operation across the UK and Europe and the one Ireland needs.” AOI chief executive Seán McCave said it is time “we stopped tolerating these terrible delays and took action”. Mr McCave pointed out that there are 650 trained Optometrists working in 350 locations across the country who could meet the clinical requirements. “In Scotland Optometrists are utilised as the front line

for public eye-care and they do not have waiting list problems,” said Mr McCave. A spokesperson for the Department of Health said: ”The number of patients waiting for a cataract procedure at the end of April 2019 was 6,151, which represents a reduction of

almost 50 percent when compared to July 2017, when the number of people waiting for a cataract procedure was 10,024. “It is also worth noting that at the end of April 2019, of the patients waiting for a cataract procedure, 582 of patients were waiting over nine months. This

represents a reduction of 3,789 or 87 percent when compared to July 2017, when there were 4,371 patients waiting over nine months for a cataract operation. “In Budget 2019 the Government had further increased investment in tackling waiting lists, with

funding to NTPF increasing from €55 million in 2018 to €75 million in 2019. “The joint Department of Health, HSE, and NTPF Scheduled Care Access Plan 2019 was published on March 11 and is focused on 10 identified high volume procedures, which includes cataracts.”

DUBLIN Bay North TD Tommy Broughan (Ind) has received a report on the number of instances of Garda firearms and less than lethal weapons being discharged in 2017, 2018 and to date in 2019. In a reply to a Parliamentary Question (PQ), Deputy Broughan was informed that pepper spray was used 657 times in 2017, Taser was used 34 times and firearms were discharged six times. In 2018, there were 687 instances of pepper spray, 31 instances of use of Tasers and four discharges of firearms; and to date in 2019,

Dublin Bay North TD Tommy Broughan (Ind) there have been 257 instances of pepper spray, eight of Tasers and one discharge of a firearm. Deputy Broughan said the Minister for Justice and Equality and GSOC did not provide any further information with the breakdown of figures.

She smiled when I recalled how I had once seen Phil having a laugh with the ladies working at the bakery counter in his local Superquinn. Before I left, she gave me a book of poetry written by Phil. I asked her to sign it for me. While it was an honour to be invited to Philomena’s home that memorable Sunday afternoon, there was nothing that unusual about it. Thin Lizzy fans who travelled from abroad to visit Phil’s grave in St Fintan’s Cemetery in Sutton were often brought back for tea by Philomena. Perhaps mindful of how much her son was loved by his legion of fans, she seemed to accept that she had a duty to share him with others. I met Philomena briefly on other occasions over the years, usually at Phil Lynott related events. She was always the same warm, beautiful person I had met that afternoon in Sutton. I was genuinely saddened to learn of her passing last week as she holds a special place in the hearts of all Irish rock fans. She is finally reunited with her beloved Philip.

Mixed results for Northside areas in litter survey THERE were mixed results for local areas in the latest Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) survey. While the north inner city and Ballymun received poor ratings, there was much better news for Swords and the Dublin Airport Environs which finished in the top 20 areas surveyed. Both were deemed to be ‘Clean to European Norms’. Dublin Airport Environs achieved 15th place and Swords 18th place. For the survey, An Taisce assessed litter levels in 40 towns and cities across the country and found 31 of them or 77 percent to be clean which was very positive news for tourism and

local communities alike. According to the report, the Dublin Airport Environs presented a “fresh and welcoming environment” for visitors. Conor Horgan of IBAL drew attention to the positive results for Dublin Airport and Environs. “Today’s tourists demand high levels of cleanliness and these results indicate that’s what they will be getting this year when they come to Ireland,” said Mr Horgan. “It is also important that their first impression be a good one, so it’s pleasing to see the roads around Dublin Airport are again Clean to

European Norms.” Regarding Swords, the report said: “An excellent showing by past winner Swords on its return to the league after an absence of several years saw the town being placed 18th out of 40 towns/cities surveyed. “The approach roads got the top litter grade, creating a positive first impression of the town. “The residential areas of Carlton Court and Longlands were both top ranking, indicating well cared for environments.” Newly elected Mayor of Fingal, Cllr Eoghan O’Brien, welcomed the results. “These are excellent results for the Fingal region, particularly

the airport region and Swords,” he said. “I see the many hours of voluntary effort put in by local residents throughout the county, working with Fingal County Council to improve their areas, and it is great to see these efforts acknowledged in this way.” AnnMarie Farrelly, interim chief executive of Fingal County Council, said: “The excellent results for the two Fingal locations in the latest IBAL survey demonstrate clearly the ongoing commitment of Fingal County Council to the fight against litter. “They are also testament to the dedication of council staff who work hard to

in domestic waste collection. Ballymun, meanwhile, finished at the bottom of the table, receiving the lowest grade of ‘litter blackspot’.

The Blanchardstown Garda Division is to receive 27 new members of Dublin’s 120 total.

Local businesses put on a show EIGHT businesses that have been part of a new project in Coláiste Dhúlaigh College of Further Education (CDCFE) have taken residency in The Powerscourt Centre for two weeks. The ‘Greendale Co-working Space’ is displaying work from the businesses

that all started as part of the project last September. The businesses include ceramics, watercolour paintings, healing, music event specialist, fashion and animation. Irene Hoysted, who runs her own ceramics business, said: “The year has been an incredible insight into

starting your own company and having a shop in the Powerscourt Centre really caps off the end of a fantastic year.” Irene now plans to create a garden studio to produce her own range of ceramic art and take it to the market place.

Mary Hickie, Principal of Coláiste Dhúlaigh College of Further Education, said: “It is a first for the college and it’s wonderful to be opening this shop in such a fantastic location.” Ms Hickie thanked Anita Elliott for mentoring the entrepreneurs this year.

Recruitment for companies for this September has already taken place and sees even more diverse companies creating the line-up for September 2019. For more information on the Greendale co-working space, visit www.cdcfe.ie

Film Review 

What’s the story with all those toys? IT’S hard to improve on perfection, and it’s equally hard to replicate it. 1995’s ‘Toy Story’, featuring talking toys Woody and Buzz, received

a 100 percent perfect score on review site Rotten Tomatoes. 1999’s ‘Toy Story 2’ got the same rating and was an even bigger commercial success.

The next installment in 2010 was nominated for an Academy Award for best picture (only the third animated film ever to do so) and was the first animation feature

to pass $1 billion in revenues. That’s quite the achievement. Let’s leave it there shall we. No? OK then. And so ‘Toy Story 4’ sees the return of our popular plastic playthings voiced by Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and others, in a film directed by first time director, Josh Cooley. This time out, Woody’s young owner, Bonnie, who is struggling to fit into her new kindergarten surroundings, returns home one day with a new best friend, Forky, a fork she has rescued from the trash and made almost human. Woody and the gang realise how important Forky is to Bonnie and must convince him that he’s a toy and not a discarded piece of cutlery that belongs in the garbage. When Bonnie’s parents take her on a road trip, Forkie and the gang go along for good measure, and when the eating utensil goes missing, Woody must organise a rescue party. The story takes a while to get going, but eventually does and transports us to a familiar and safe place where laughs and emotional punches are never far away. There are some interesting and amusing new characters to meet, namely a pair of fluffy toys named Bunny and Ducky,

and a Canadian stuntman voiced by Keanu Reeves. But the film falls some way short of its predecessors, not in a bad way, it’s decent fun, just not up to the usual

standard. Tom Hanks has said this is the last film in the franchise and there is a moving moment right at the very end which seems

to suggest he’s right. We award ‘Toy Story 4’ a review score of 3.5 solid stars.

‘It takes only seconds to change your life’

As Luas marks its 15th anniversary later this month, its operators have reminded motorists, cyclists and pedestrians to observe some simple rules to stay safe THE operators of Luas have warned motorists, pedestrians and cyclists that it takes only seconds to change their life. As the service marks its 15th anniversary this month, Transdev reminded the public that Luas trams travel on a fixed track, cannot swerve and take time to brake and stop. It stressed that coming into contact with a tram can result in a serious injury or fatality. The company said that Luas drivers continually report the same incidents: pedestrians jaywalking, never looking left and right, often with headphones in and heads down; motorists and cyclists breaking red lights.

“Not breaking red lights and crossing roads and tramways carefully are basic rules of the road which, when broken, can prove fatal,” Transdev said in a statement. Passenger services on the Luas Green Line started on June 30, 2004. It has become part of the city’s landscape and sound, with its sleek, modern look and distinctive chimes. Its popularity continues to grow with 42 million passenger journeys made on the Luas network in 2018. However, as a result of recent incidents, Transdev has released new CCTV footage which shows motorists and cyclists deliberately breaking red lights

on Luas tracks and pedestrians, including children, walking out in front of oncoming trams. Seamus Egan, managing director of Transdev, said: “People have become familiar with Luas, and with familiarity sometimes comes complacency. A tram is on a fixed track, it cannot swerve and it needs more time to brake than a road vehicle. Motorists, who often visibly speed up to cross a road junction as opposed to slowing down, need to be more mindful of the potential consequences of their actions.” He added: “Not only is the motorist gambling with his or her life and the lives of others, a collision with a tram results in

significant delays or curtailment of service for Luas customers. When a collision with a tram does occur, Luas passengers are left waiting for the emergency services to deal with the incident before the all-clear can be given for the Luas service to resume.” Meanwhile, Iarnród Éireann has called for greater vigilance by those who use railway level crossings, whether in urban or rural environments, as incidents so far this year have surged by 82 per cent. The company issued a statement this month to coincide with International Level Crossing Awareness Day. In 2018, there were 81 incidents at level

crossings, the majority of which involved crossing barriers being struck by vehicles which continued over the level crossing, even though the barriers were lowering and the warning lights were flashing. There has been a significant growth in incidents recorded

so far this year, with 51 incidents at level crossings across the network. Iarnród Éireann said these incidents can cause significant disruption to rail services and place both road users and railway passengers at serious risk.

The Sutton Station barrier alone has been struck 10 times already this year, according to Iarnród Éireann. All these crossings are equipped with licence plate recognition systems to assist in the prosecutions of offenders.

Midsummer fun in Skerries THE seaside town of Skerries is the place to be this weekend as its sixth annual Midsummer Festival gets underway. Running from Friday, June 21 to Sunday 23, the festival is part of Fáilte Ireland’s ‘Dublin, Surprising By Nature’, in association with Fingal Tourism. Skerries Midsummer Festival celebrates almost two millennia of strong historic and cultural associations with the surrounding seas. The area is steeped in history and legend: St Patrick himself first landed and lived on one of Skerries’ five islands all the way back in 432AD. Festival highlights include the Three Island Challenge, Ireland’s first east coast Currach Race, featuring the Skerries built Currach na Sceiri.

SNA boost A LARGE number of Northside schools are set to benefit from an increase in Special Needs Assistants (SNA) for the next school term. Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh has announced almost 800 new SNA posts are being allocated for September. Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Richard Bruton TD welcomed the announcement. “The appointment of 17 new SNAs to schools in Dublin Bay North will add over 4 percent to the existing number and represents an increase of over 50 percent since 2011,” said Minister Bruton. “Special Needs Assistants play a pivotal role in ensuring every child can fulfil their potential in school.”

Locals urged to nominate inspirational teachers IS Dublin home to some of the most inspiring teachers in Ireland?  A new initiative is aiming to find out.  Teachers Inspire Ireland is an initiative of Dublin City University (DCU), focused on highlighting the enormous contribution made by teachers in Irish society.  It is now open for people in Dublin – and across the country – to share their personal stories of how a teacher transformed their lives and/or their community. Stories can be submitted through the teachersinspire.ie website, and can be in either written or video format. The closing date for submissions is June 30.  After the closing date, a shortlist of the most compelling stories will be selected and profiled on the website.  The initiative will then culminate in the inaugural

Teachers Inspire Ireland gala dinner on September 27 at which teachers from across the country (one from each province) will be acknowledged and celebrated. Minister for Education and Skills Joe McHugh launched the initiative along with students from St Joseph’s National School, Bonnybrook, Coolock and Loreto College, Swords. Minister McHugh said: “I welcome the development of this initiative, which acknowledges the pivotal contribution of teachers to our society.  “Throughout Ireland, teachers go above and beyond to give their students the best possible learning experience. They not only teach, they motivate, encourage and inspire.” President of DCU, Professor Brian MacCraith, said: “Teachers Inspire wants to hear from Dublin

“We hope to see a strong response from people across the county who, I’m sure, have excellent stories to tell about the teachers

who inspired them.” Professor McCraith said DCU is delighted to play a central role in the development of Teachers

Inspire Ireland. “It is important that exceptional teachers get the validation and recognition they deserve,” he added.

RESIDENTS in a Northside housing estate came together last Saturday week to unveil a plaque in memory of a hugely popular neighbour. Carmel Cooper, who passed away in November 2018, was well-known in the area, especially in sporting circles. The memorial plague – ‘Cooper’s Corner’ – was erected on a wall in Woodville Estate, off Kilmore Road. Carmel set up Woodville Camogie Club 45 years ago and they would go on to enjoy unbelievable success, winning Feiles, Community Games events and club championships. A lot of the team’s members went on to play for Dublin and achieved

notable successes in their county colours. Local woman Suzanne Strong, who was involved in organising the plaque and the unveiling ceremony, said: “I have six All Ireland Gold Medals under her watch. Carmel and her husband also ran the local athletics club where many of the members became fantastic athletes. “Cooper’s Corner (i.e. Carmel’s house) was always open and for the local community it was a home from home: a fun place, a safe place, a meeting place, a fantastic place. “Carmel was a mentor in sport and in life, and the camogie team of 45 years ago organised the event to celebrate her life.”

The late Carmel Cooper. Suzanne added: “Carmel had a remarkable way of making everyone feel special. She had your back and she was always in your corner. She was

‘Cooper’s Corner’.” During the ceremony Carmel’s grandson, Cormac, sang one of her favourite songs that he penned himself.

Returning to my favourite Vienna

Rick Steves BACK in the summer of 1969, I took my first trip to Europe. My father, a piano importer, brought me to Vienna's Bösendorfer piano factory. Together, my dad and I watched the world's finest pianos being built by hand, in hundreds of meticulous steps. Each hand-crafted piano had its own personality. And, as I played a selection of new pianos, my dad analysed the personality of each and matched it to a client's taste back home. Witnessing and enjoying this amazing Old World craftsmanship in person inspired in me a special appreciation of Europe — especially Vienna. This city's devotion to the musical arts and its democratic embrace of culture are inspirational. In the first hours of a recent trip here, still bleary with jet lag, I stepped out of my hotel to get a feel for the city. I walked 50 yards to the open square in front of the Vienna State Opera — arguably the greatest opera house in Europe. There, on a big outdoor screen, the night's opera (Puccini's Manon Lescaut — sold out, as they all are) was being streamed live for anyone to enjoy. In Vienna, highbrow music is the stuff of daily life. Music lovers come to Vienna on a kind of pilgrimage. The homes of Schubert, Brahms, Haydn, Beethoven, and Mozart all host museums — but they are small and rather forgettable. For the best music history experience, I skip the composers' houses and head for the Haus der Musik. It's wonderfully interactive, letting visitors learn and have fun at the same time. You can play musical scales with your feet on a staircase that functions like a keyboard, or try your hand at conducting a virtual orchestra. You'll also find fine exhibits honouring the great Viennese composers and lots of actual historic artefacts. Vienna was historically such a Mecca for classical music because of the passion and patronage of the ruling Hapsburg family. These music-loving royals ruled Austria for more than six centuries from Vienna, and this imperial legacy makes the city one of the world's most liveable places. The city centre is skyscraper-free, pedestrian-friendly, speckled with leafy parks and cosy cafés, and a joy to cycle through. Throughout this compact core, the elegant architecture and opulent

facades remain from when Vienna was one of Europe's great capital cities. The old centre is corralled by its grand circular Ringstrasse. In the 1860s, Emperor Franz Josef had Vienna's medieval wall torn down. He replaced it with this impressive boulevard, which arcs nearly three miles around the city core. One of Europe's great streets, the Ringstrasse is lined with many of the Vienna's top sights. For a handy do-it-yourself budget tour, you can hop on a tram and make the loop. Because this ring road is actually older than all the buildings that line it, what you see is very ‘Neo’; Neo-Renaissance, Neo-Gothic, Neoclassical, and Neo-Baroque. The choice of style seems to fit each building's function. The Austrian parliament building is Neoclassical — because democracy came from ancient Greece. In Vienna, the neighbourhood coffeehouse down the street doubles as a ‘living room’ for locals. PHOTO: DOMINIC The city hall is Neo-Gothic ARIZONA BONUCCELLI — recalling the age when local merchants ran the government. The museum buildings are NeoRenaissance — for a spirit of arts and learning. And Vienna's Imperial Court Theatre (Burgtheater) is Neo-Baroque — from the age when opera and theater flourished. The Hapsburg family ruled Europe's greatest empire from their two luxurious Vienna palaces. Schönbrunn Palace, with its expansive grounds standing at the edge of the city, was their summer residence. Their main palace, the Hofburg, dominates the town centre. This imposing and sprawling complex grew with the family empire from the 13th century until just before World War I. While the last Habsburg checked out in 1918, the palace is still plenty busy. It has the offices of the Austrian president, and is home to the Spanish Riding School (with its famous Lipizzaner stallions) and the The Vienna State Opera building at Ringstrasse Boulevard. PHOTO: BIGSTOCK Vienna Boys' Choir — not to mention hundreds of government workers. And the heart of the palace welcomes the public to tour the sumptuous Imperial Apartments. This final wing of the Hofburg was built to a standard of imperial splendour as befitting the Habsburgs' god-like, unquestioned status, even though it was already the age of the automobile, just a few years before World War I — and the end of their long dynasty. Now, after losing World War I and its empire, Vienna is more laid back. The city enjoys the cultural and physical remnants of its imperial past as both an inspiration and a playground for living well. It must be nice to be past your prime — no longer troubled by being powerful, able to kick back and enjoy the good life Viennese style: masterful music, wonderful pastries, and aweinspiring art.

Fingal students are recognised for commitment to inclusion STUDENTS at Northside schools have been recognised for their commitment to equality and inclusion. The Prosper Fingal Making a Difference Awards were established by Prosper Fingal last year as part of its 40th anniversary celebrations. The organisation, which provides services and supports to approximately 300 adults with an intellectual disability across north Dublin, also has student ambassadors in six Fingal schools who inform peers about its work. At Ardgillan College, Balbriggan, the award winners were Keelin Tapley, Emily Cathcart, Belbin Benny and Stefan Simonovic. They set up an initiative called ‘Headstrong’ to help combat stigma surrounding mental health. They created their own Instagram page and worked to promote the message of positive mental health openness for all. The joint winners at Loreto Secondary School, Balbriggan were students Tegra Kiaku Alphonsine and Clodagh Finnegan. Both were voted by their peers for traits such as kindness and friendliness and for how they supported other students within the school community. David Kelly was the award recipient at St Joseph’s Secondary School, Rush. David was described as a student

who makes a difference in many ways. The winning group at Fingal Community College developed a hugely successful ‘Silver Surfers’ tech course in their school. The programme, which ran in conjunction with Age Action Ireland, involved 20 TY students. Over the course of 15 weeks they welcomed older citizens to the school each Friday and taught them how to use PCs, iPads, smartphones and all things IT. The winner at Skerries Community College was Eanna Keogan “due to his kindness, helpfulness and concern for his fellow students”. Portmarnock Community School is also participating in Students at Ardgillan College, Balbriggan receiving their award. the initiative and will hold its awards ceremony later in the year.

Local photographer discovers a lost time capsule AS A young man in the 1960s, Bill Hogan worked at night as a projectionist in cinemas. Northside resident Bill, originally from Windy Arbour, became particularly interested in photography. His particular talent was in observing people going about their ordinary lives. As he worked mostly at night in the cinema, he was able to spend his time wandering the streets of Dublin during the day with his camera. He then worked for Irish Life Assurance Co for 40 years before he retired in 2011. When he got married to Veronica, who he lives with in Clontarf, children and family life took centre stage and his photographs were relegated to the attic. Only in retirement, 50 years later, did he rediscover this time capsule of 1960s Dublin, and these perfectly captured small but

extraordinary moments of the city in years gone by. The candid black and white photographs of distinctive and often touching scenes in the city centre show a Dublin that is familiar, despite the five decades that separate the moments from today. It is filled with memories of times gone by; of a time when there was only one Poolbeg chimney; of a time before the shopping centre was built on the corner of St Stephen’s Green. But it is also filled with so much that has not changed: children playing, young couples in love, homelessness. In 'A Different Dublin', photographs of mothers feeding their babies from Guinness bottles are juxtaposed against shots of teenagers enjoying St Stephen’s Green on a summer’s day. Bill Hogan managed to capture the complexities

Local students build community apps at CoderDojo event STUDENTS from across Dublin city descended on LogMeIn EMEA HQ at Grand Canal Dock recently for a CoderDojo event to solve problems facing their local community. Aged between 13-17, students were asked to prototype an app that would benefit their local community in some way. Some of the ideas

included a pollution control app targeting communities and gamifying recycling, an easy events app to help get kids moving and having fun outside and an app to help teens create their dream projects. LogMeIn Inc hosted the event to encourage local youth engagement with science, technology, engineering and maths

(STEM). The students who attended the event participated in a CoderDojo ‘dojo’ at the Technological University of Dublin Blanchardstown Campus on weekends. Amy Wendel, Global Head of Corporate Social Responsibility at LogMeIn said the company was proud

to support community initiatives like CoderDojo who do invaluable work to help young children learn about programming. “It is so important for children to see the realworld applications of STEM,” she said. “This initiative supports students in building a solid foundation of coding skills, which

will not only open their minds to new ideas and perspectives, but hopefully excite them about continued development in technology. “LogMeIn recognises the importance of building upon and strengthening technological skills from a young age, and through its Corporate Social Responsibility programme, Mission Possible, works together with CoderDojo allowing for this to become a reality. “For this reason, we

have supported the organisation for over five years with volunteer time, grants and product licenses. “This month will be donating €15,000 to CoderDojo to continue their important work in the community.” During the LogMeInCoderDojo event, the students took part in a miniature Dragons’ Denstyle workshop hosted by Building Impact where teams prototyped and pitched a mobile app that would solve a challenge in the community to a panel of experts.

Students worked alongside their LogMeIn volunteers, who assisted student teams with their marketing and design skills in bringing their ideas to life. With three breakout sessions, teams worked through each phase of app prototyping, including marketing, product management, and engineering/design. These hands-on STEM experiences gave students an opportunity to team with others in building a bright future for themselves and their community.  

Schools urged to celebrate Europe

DUBLIN schools are being called on to celebrate European collaboration during Erasmus+ Schools Week 2019. Schools Week 2019 will take place from Monday September 30 to Friday October 4 across Ireland. Erasmus+ Schools Week is coordinated by Léargas, the national agency for Erasmus+ in adult education, school education, vocational education and training, and youth. Erasmus+ provides funding and support for organisations – including schools – to create projects that encourage European exchange, cooperation and learning. In 2018 more than 4,200 students in over 100 primary and secondary schools across Ireland took part in Erasmus+ projects. Erasmus+ Schools Week 2019 offers schools the opportunity to celebrate their projects and share their experiences with the wider community. It’s open to all schools that have taken part in Erasmus+ since 2014. Léargas is now inviting schools to get involved in Erasmus+ Schools Week through activities big or small.

Ideas include hosting a European-themed party, creating videos or blog posts that show what it’s like to take part in Erasmus+, or holding an information get-together on Erasmus+ projects for schools, parents and the community. “Last year, schools around the country ran an amazing variety of events and activities with fun, collaboration and learning at their core,” said Leo Gilmartin, Client Services Officer at Léargas. “This year, we look forward to seeing even more schools in Dublin – and throughout Ireland – embracing the opportunity to share their work and experiences with their communities. “Erasmus+ has a huge impact on developing a sense of

European identity and building international relationships. From students on exchanges to teachers on best-practice research trips abroad, the programme provides many opportunities to engage internationally and cross-culturally. “Irish schools can even digitally pair with other European schools through eTwinning, and students and teachers can learn from each other and collaborate on joint assignments. “These are the kinds of exciting initiatives we’ll be celebrating during Erasmus+ Schools Week 2019, and we look forward to hearing from Dublin schools on how they plan to mark the occasion.” For more information see https://www.leargas. ie/news/erasmus-schoolsweek-2019.

The Raheny Business Association (RBA), formed in 1988 by a group of local business people, continues to be a huge asset to the Raheny community.

Raheny-based garden designer and horticulturist Kevin Dennis won his fourth gold medal at Bloom in the Park.

Anyone who grew up in the area might remember some of the events we have compiled for our ‘Memories of Raheny’ article.

THERE are a number of ingredients that go towards making an area prosper. These include a good community spirit, friendly citizens, businesses that go the extra mile, quality services, good schools and sports clubs, hard workers and volunteers, active groups for young and old, and people who are proud of where they live. Raheny undoubtedly has these ingredients in abundance, and is the primary reason this popular Northside suburb continues to thrive. There are a number of organisations carrying out great work in the community (far too many to mention here!). These include the Raheny Tidy Village Group, Raheny Business

Association (RBA), Raheny Community First Repsonders, Raheny Age Friendly Community Club, the charity Blossom Ireland and many others. The hardworking volunteers at Raheny Tidy Village Group are always on hand to ensure Raheny puts its best foot forward. The group have deservedly won numerous awards over the years in both the National SuperValu Tidy Towns competition and Dublin City Council City Neighbourhood Awards and is always keen to embrace new environmental initiatives that will enhance the village further. This is a particularly busy time of year for the group which will Continued on Page 30

Supporting businesses in Raheny ACCORDING to the latest statistics published by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) two weeks ago, the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate for May was 4.4 percent, the lowest recorded unemployment rate since February 2005. And according to a report from property website daft.ie only published last week, rents for properties close to DART stations and Luas stops are now 12 percent more than the Dublin average rent of €2,002 per month in the first three months of 2019. So while the downturn would seem to be well

and truly behind us, this is no time to get complacent, especially with that elephant (Brexit!) still lurking in the room. The recession which had the country in a vice-like grip from late 2007/2008 taught us all some very harsh lessons. Whether we have fully learned from them, though, remains to be seen! The days of buying that second home in Spain or changing the car every six months are a long way away. Too many people got too badly burnt to even contemplate going down that road again. Amid all the positivity, the hard fact is that

local businesses still need support. Indeed it’s always important, recession or no recession, to back local traders and play our part in keeping employment levels up in our communities. Raheny is one of those areas that has always strived to offer its citizens the very best in local services.   It has always been renowned as a close-knit area providing a huge range of shops, local services, schools, sports clubs and recreational outlets. From humble beginnings, Raheny has grown along with the population explosion

Supporting local businesses benefits everyone in the community. FILE PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA and this growth has been more than matched by local businesses that have stepped up to the mark. There is everything 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. Fortunately for Raheny there is an excellent business organisation that has been carrying

out great work in the area for more than 30 years. Raheny Business Association (RBA) was set up by a group of local business people on December 6 1988 in a time of recession in Ireland when our biggest export was our educated, young people. The first meeting was held in the Shieling Hotel where some 75 businesses attended.

The Raheny Business Association has now swelled to more than 150 members, all based in Raheny and the surrounding area. The founding committee’s vision was ‘To Make Raheny A Better Place to Live and Work’, and the thriving community that exists today is testament that the RBA has been true to this vision.  The association

continues to go from strength to strength and is a tribute to the many business people who have given their time and effort over the years on the committees. It proves that nothing succeeds better than people working together to achieve a common goal. And the effort put in over the years by locals have undoubtedly paid rich dividends!

Local man wins gold at Bloom A GARDEN designer and horticulturist, based in Raheny, won a gold medal at Bloom.   Kevin Dennis won his fourth gold medal for his iconic ‘FBD Insurance Urban Sanctuary Garden.’ The success followed wins in 2014, 2017 and 2018. The garden, which was constructed onsite in the Phoenix Park, took a team of professional gardeners over two weeks to complete following months of design by Kevin. This garden, generously sponsored by FBD Insurance, captures a contemporary urban lifestyle with the aim of inspiring people living in towns or cities to disconnect from an online world and become more engaged with their outdoor spaces around them. Kevin crafted a strongly designed landscape that will allow the visitor to enjoy meaningful time reflecting and enjoying the impact of a truly urban sanctuary.

presenters of property shows over the years. It is widely used by property experts to show that the three most important factors in determining the desirability of a property are indeed ‘location, location, location’. It’s a phrase that could sit easily too with Raheny. When the DART was launched back in the 1980s, Raheny was included in the route and it opened up a wide range of possibilities for the village and its surrounds. For instance, it made it much easier for visitors to come out to the area and enjoy the very special amenity and jewel in Raheny’s crown – St Anne’s Park. The park is a wonderful attraction for locals and visitors alike, and its value to the community is never greater than when we get good weather. All year round walkers, joggers, and sportspeople use the marvellous facilities at the park. The Red Stables is among the facilities located in the 300 acres of beautiful parkland at St Anne’s. This popular facility houses artists’ day studios, an Irish Artists’ Residential Studio and an International Residential Studio. Let’s be honest: most of us would like to have a beach on our doorstep, especially in the summer. Raheny residents are fortunate in this respect, given the area’s close proximity to the wonderful amenities that are Dollymount Beach and Bull Island.  As well as St Anne’s Park, St Francis Hospice on Station Road and St Joseph’s Hospital on Springdale Road, are two of the other landmarks in the area. Both perform a very important role in community life.

Building a better future WHOLE SCHOOL EVALUATION 2019

In May 2019 the Department of Education and Science Inspectorate arrived to conduct a Whole School Evaluation which highlighted how well we have progressed and how far we have come since our last inspection in 2011. Significant strengths in Teaching and Learning, School Management and Leadership were identified. This is a very positive report and indicates that the school is fulfilling its role in the community for all of its learners. We are very proud of our achievements and thank all of our stakeholders who have contributed to our success over the past five years. This is a very positive report which affirms all of the hard work and commitment which students, parents, teaching and ancillary staff perform on a daily basis.

PARENTS’ ASSOCIATION

I would like to thank the Parents’ Association for the wonderful support which they provide and for the pride which they have shown in the school. Their support in developing policies, general advice and fund-raising events are greatly appreciated and acknowledged and are vital to the successful partnership which we are trying to build in the school. The annual Summer Plant sale brings colour to the school and has gained a reputation for the quality of its bedding plants. The parents are never far from any event that the school organises and their constant support and encouragement is truly appreciated. They really are an integral part of the school.

EDUCATIONAL TRIPS

Outside of the classroom more and more engagements are happening through the many and varied trips which take place throughout the year. The Music and Art cultural trip to London is the first regular on the calendar. This is followed by the annual Ski Trip for fourth years and then there is the Barcelona trip for the second years which is always so successful. This is quite an amazing list and there is a biennial French Department trip to Paris. As I write this there is a group of fifth year students in Ambo, Ethiopia,helping the Vincentian Lay Missions teaching in a school for deaf children. In September 2019 current fifth year students will be going to Lourdes with the Dublin Diocesan pilgrimage to act as helpers.

At home the TY cycle to Glendalough, visits to city museums, art galleries and to cinema events, trips to workplaces including Google and Yahoo, attending events in the RDS, Croke Park and 3 Arena and competing in Music, Art, Science, Maths, Gaeilge and Business competitions at various locations around the country. Geography field trips are especially memorable parts of the curriculum.

CHARITY ACTIVITIES

St Paul’s has a long association with the Irish Cancer Society. This year we raised over €10,000 through collections for the Pink Ribbon and Daffodil Days. Our Transition Year students collect at the local dart stations and in the city centre. Our students truly show by their deeds how committed they are to assisting good causes. Every Christmas in association with the local Killester Conference of Vincent de Paul we collect groceries to make and distribute Christmas hampers. This year the students and staff made over eighty hampers which they distributed to local families and the homeless in the City Centre. In November we held a non- uniform day to raise funds for St. Francis Hospice. The students raised €600. This was organised by our Fifth Year LCVP students.

SPORT

Sporting endeavours are wide-ranging in St Paul’s College. Soccer, Rugby, Gaelic Football Hurling and Basketball are all represented and I would like to thank all of our staff and students who commit themselves to promoting these sports and for giving of their time so generously. The Rugby programme is maintaining the strong tradition of rugby in the school. The highly popular Summer Camp for incoming first years has proven to be a great ice-breaker for our new entrants. We are always trying to expand the numbers engaged in sport and to give as many students as possible an opportunity to be involved. For this reason, I am happy to welcome the Badminton team who have started playing this year, under the guidance of Mr Paddy Daly, our new school chaplain.

ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENTS

The Irish Junior Science Olympiad is a science competition. The finalists are selected on the basis of their Junior Certificate Examination results. The State Examination Commission (SEC)

identifies the high achievers in Maths & Science in the Junior Certificate Examination (must include A in Mathematics and Science). This year we had three finalists. Congratulations to Daniel Sealy, TY student, who was presented with an award by the BSTAI and UCD for outstanding performance in the Junior Certificate Business Exam. Damhan Mulligan (3rd Year) won the Junior Section of the 2019 German Language Essay Competition. His award was presented by the Austrian Ambassador Dr. Helmut Freudenschuss in Dublin. This year, the Irish Translators’ and Interpreters’ Association ran a competition for secondary students in Ireland for the languages Chinese, French, German, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Spanish into English. Congratulations to Mark James (6thYear) who came first in the Spanish translation section.

LEAVING CERTIFICATE CLASS OF 2018

The Class of 2018 were a group of fine young men who possessed a wide range of talents. The group had terrific personality and very much appreciated the efforts the school made for them. They enjoyed their time in St. Paul’s and regularly return to say hello and tell us how they are getting on. We congratulate all of our students who performed so well in Leaving Certificate 2018. Sixteen students in the year achieved over 500 points. Three students achieved 495 points. Another fifteen students obtained more than four hundred points. Six of this year group won College scholarships to Trinity, DCU and UCD. We wish theLeaving Certificate Class of 2019 all the best with their exams.

COMMUNITY INVOLVEMENT

We are happy to share our facilities with many local sporting and recreational clubs in the Raheny, Clontarf, Killester and Artane environs. Activities ranging from Bridge, Boxing, Keep Fit, Coding, Karate/Judo, Gaelic, Rugby and Soccer amongst many others take place on the College grounds throughout the week.

THERE was great excitement in Raheny in April when its top amenity, St Anne’s Park, added a new attraction that will be enjoyed by hundreds of visitors this summer. The city’s first urban farm, which is free to visit, is open to the public five days a week all year round. It is typical of community led farms in other international cities in that it is entirely run by volunteers from the local community on a nonprofit basis. Volunteers manage and care for the animals, which includes two pigs, mine chickens, three goats, a guinea pig and ‘Moses’ the pony. The ethos of St Anne’s City Farm is not to be a ‘petting farm’ but a place

where people can learn first-hand about animal husbandry, growing food, cooking food, sustainable living and reconnecting with nature. It is intended that the operations of the farm will be fully sustainable with a zero carbon footprint. Speaking at the launch in April, Marion Kelly, from St Anne’s City Farm, said: “The farm follows in the footsteps of other community farms in London like Hackney city farm and Spitalfields city farm. “We believe that every child and grown-up should have access to a garden and that everyone in the garden is equal. “By providing a safe and open space for people to share what they know and learn from others, we strive to empower people

through knowledge and creating. We are so excited to open our doors.” Leslie Moore, Head of Parks Services in Dublin City Council, said: “There were many submissions to the recent Dublin Climate Change Action Plan public consultation that recommended promoting community initiatives around local food production. “The urban farm in St Anne’s Park responds to that desire in the community. “This project is all about sustainable living and community development and I hope that this might be a model for similar projects in other areas of the city.” For more information on the farm visit https:// dublincityfarm.com/

Motor industry focuses on the start of 192 registration period AS WE move into June the motor industry is now focused on preparations for the start of the July 192 registration period. That’s according to Brian Cooke, SIMI Director General, who was speaking as the official statistics released by the Society of the Irish Motor Industry (SIMI) show that total new car registrations for the month of May are up 4.7% (6,341) when compared with May 2018 (6,055). New car registrations year to date are down 7.6% (79,343) on the same period last year (85,868). New Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) registrations are also up, 5.2% (1,726) on May 2018 (1,641), with registrations year to date down 8.4% (14,617). While New Heavy Commercial Vehicles (HGV) increased 31.3% (298) in comparison to May 2018 (227) and year to date are also up 7.7% (1,491) Imported Used Cars for May increased 4.1%

(9,346) on the same month last year (8,978) while year to date imports are 3% (45,062) ahead of 2018 (43,739). New electric vehicle registrations continue to grow month on month with a total of 1,902 EV cars registered so far this year, surpassing the total number of EVs registered for 2018 (1,233). SIMI (Society of the Irish Motor Industry) is the official voice of the motor industry in Ireland. They are a members’ organisation which consists of dealers, repairers, vehicle distributors, wholesalers, retailers, vehicle testers and many other important operators within the industry in Ireland. Their role is to represent the views of the motor industry by campaigning to the Government, State bodies, the media and the motoring public. Commenting on the registrations figurers Brian Cooke, SIMI

Director General said: “Registrations for the month of May, both cars and light commercial vehicles, showed an improvement on May of last year, although the increase in numerical terms was relatively small. “However, sales overall year to date have been disappointing with both business and consumer Brexit related uncertainty contributing to dampened demand for new vehicles. “As we move into June the industry is now focused on preparations for the start of the July 192 registration period. This will see a variety of strong offers to consumers across all brands, and in this environment, consumers will have a wide choice of cars to choose from at a really competitive price.” The SIMI was formed when the Society of the Irish Motor Traders Ltd and the Irish Motor Traders Association merged together back in 1968. Brian Cooke, SIMI Director General.

Consumers offered advice on various car finance options PCP finance has become one of the most popular forms of car finance with approximately one-third of new cars bought using this type of transaction. PCP finance is also increasingly used to buy second hand cars. PCPs usually involve low monthly repayments and a relatively quick approval process on the garage forecourt. Research published in the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission’s (CCPC) PCP report, showed that these products are complex and consumers can find it difficult to understand how they work, particularly at the end of an agreement. In the run up to the sale of new ‘192’ registered cars, the CCPC is running an information campaign to help consumers understand PCPs so that they can make informed decisions on what is best for their circumstances.

Áine Carroll, Director of Communications and Policy in the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission said: “PCPs are significant long-term financial commitments. “The complexity of PCP products, coupled with the value of these agreements, means that it is extremely important that consumers understand what they are signing up to. This can only happen when consumers understand how the product works.” PCP finance is not like other types of car finance. A large part of the cost is deferred until the end of the agreement. This means that monthly re-payments are lower than they would be using a traditional loan or hire purchase. If you are considering PCP finance, it is important that you do not focus entirely on the affordability of the monthly repayments but consider the full price

of the car (including running costs) and what you intend to do at the end of your agreement. Consider at the start what you want to do at the end. The complicating feature of PCPs is that, at the end of the agreement, you have three options: to pay the Guaranteed Minimum Future Value (the lump sum at the end), hand back the keys or start a new PCP agreement for another car. Your intention at the end of the contract is extremely important. For example, if you intend on buying the car outright at the end, you may need to save up the lump sum. Or if you intend on trading in the car, you will need to keep within certain mileage limits and ensure the car is maintained to agreed standards – and adhering to these requirements is also important if you plan on starting another

PCP at the end of the agreement. It is important to know that you may not be able to end your contract early should your circumstances change. Remember you do not own the car until the last payment. Unlike paying for a car with a loan from a bank or a credit union where you own the car straight away, with PCPs you do not own the car unless you pay the lump sum at the end of the agreement. This has practical implications such as, you cannot sell the car without the permission of the finance company. At the end of a PCP, if you intend in trading in your car for a newer model you will need to pay a deposit for your new car. There may be equity in your current car, if at the end of the term the Guaranteed Minimum Future Value is lower than the market

value of the car. This equity can be used as a deposit for the new car. Factors such as the condition of the car or changes in the secondhand car market can impact on the market value and so you should not take equity in the car as guaranteed to cover the deposit for a new car. A PCP can affect your

credit rating Like any loan, your PCP finance will appear on your credit history. This means that if you apply for a mortgage or any other type of credit, the value of the full PCP will be taken into account when lenders are assessing a credit application. And like any credit

agreement, if you miss payments on your PCP, that will be recorded on your credit history which may impact on your ability to borrow in the future. We hope this helps inform your decision when it comes to financing the 192 car of your dreams this summer.

Citroen Ireland’s C5 Aircross marks a century of motoring A CENTURY ago, André Citroen introduced his first car to the world, a 10hp model known as the Type A. In a year that marks the French carmaker’s centenary, Citroen Ireland has launched the C5 Aircross, an SUV that comes with a lot more horsepower than its ancestor - as well as some very interesting additions. Now part of the PSA Group, some people may consider Citroen late arriving to the mediumsized SUV party, the largest car segment in Ireland and one which represents over 20 per cent of the total market. Indeed, as a late arrival it will be expecting to compete against established competitors such as the Hyundai Tucson, Ford Kuga, Kia Sportage, Nissan Qashqai, Renault Kadjar,

Volkswagen Tiguan and Peugeot 3008. Citroen, however, has not arrived at this party with a cheap bottle of plonk in a fancy carrier bag. The French have come with their arms full of goodies, decent gifts that are not the sort to be picked up from a €2 shop. These attractive presents come in the form of competitive pricing, an excellent warranty, progressive hydraulic cushion suspension and Citroen’s ConnectedCam. And that’s apart from the company’s proven engines and renowned style. Following my first drive in various versions of the new Citroen C5 Aircross, I’ve come away thinking to myself that there can be occasions when it could just pay to be ‘better late than never’. I love it when a company

produces a car that’s funky, different and stylish. It shows bravery, freedom and fun. Measuring 4.5m long, 1.7m high and 2.1m wide, this Citroen is larger than many of its competitors. In fact, Citroen claims the C5 Aircross has best-in-class boot space of 580 litres to 720 litres by sliding the rear seats forward or 1,630 litres with the individual three rear seats folded. The front of this SUV has a two-tier light signature and iconic chevrons that stretch across the entire width, part of the assertive styling which helps the car stand out from the crowd. The substantial-looking Aircross is available in 30 colour combinations and can be personalised to the driver’s own liking. Inside the bright, modern and airy cabin, 33 litres

of storage space has been provided. Citroen offers this Aircross in four trim levels and with award-winning petrol (1.2 litre 130bhp) and diesel (1.5litre 130bhp and 180bhp 2.0 litre) engines, six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic transmissions. Following its successful experience in motorsport, Citroen has rekindled what was once a major part of its DNA. In the C5 Aircross, it’s called progressive hydraulic cushion suspension. Capable of dealing with compression and rebound in a most acceptable fashion, this Citroen made light work of speed ramps. It was just one aspect of the test drives that showed the comfort and handling of this car. This virtual ‘magic carpet ride’ effect is certain to gain a following. The Citroen Aircross

Senator James Reilly with his Hyundai Kona.

IN APRIL, the Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Richard Bruton, announced that €20m is being invested to fund the rollout of highpowered chargers across ESB ecars network. Making the announcement, Minister Bruton said: “We are funding high powered charging hubs on motorways and national roads all across the country, to tackle ‘range anxiety’ and encourage

drivers to make the switch to electric vehicles. “We are stepping up our response to climate change across the board and this Government is determined to take the lead and put in place the necessary infrastructure to make it easier for people to play their part.” More than 50 high power charging hubs are being funded on motorway and national road sites. These hubs will be able to charge between two and eight vehicles

simultaneously and are capable of providing up to 100km of electric driving range in as little as six minutes. In addition to the highpower charging hubs, up to 50 locations will also see Standard 22kW AC chargers upgraded to 50kW DC fast chargers, providing additional fast charging capacity around the country. This network will be able to facilitate the public charging requirements of hundreds of thousands of vehicles. Minister Bruton said: “This investment gives people confidence that they can make the switch. Now is the time. As well as providing a network of chargers, the government also offer a number of financial supports to those thinking of changing their vehicle.” Senator James Reilly

said: “As someone who invested recently in an EV electric vehicle I am very happy to hear that Minister Richard Bruton is funding high powered charging hubs on motorways and national roads all across the country, to tackle ‘range anxiety’ and encourage drivers to make the switch to electric vehicles. “My Hyundai Kona has a range of 400km on full charge and I am very happy with it. Many motorists who now have electric cars and who may need to travel across the country to Cork Galway Limerick need the reassurance that they can access charging points enroute. So this new investment by Minister Richard Bruton is really welcome. Electric Cars are the future,” Senator Reilly added. “There is no

pollution, less noise in our cities and towns from cars and commercial vehicles, which are all positive benefits. “And there is nearly no need to stop at filling stations charging points because you can do it during off peak hours at night at home..all very convenient and time saving.” This initiative is 50 per cent financed by the Government’s Climate Action Fund with the remainder funded by the ESB. ESB ecars is currently identifying the most appropriate locations on motorways and national road networks. The sites will be identified using the latest software mapping techniques, taking account of information on current charge point usage, traffic volume, and accessibility.

Capable of producing 138bhp, this is less than the other, aforementioned hot hatches (the ST has 197bhp on tap), but I was not reading too much into this. The four-cylinder engine, mated to a sixspeed gearbox, showed great willingness; a little flick of the smooth gear lever always helped to retain momentum. It was only when I brought this car to more rural surroundings and twisty roads that it became clear what this car would say if it could talk. “I may not be as powerful, but I am still great fun” is surely what would be said. Indeed, this Swift is fun. The car proved so enjoyable to drive that even if I had just got out of a larger, expensive executive car and someone asked me to drive to Donegal and back in this Suzuki, I’d have

jumped at the chance. For me, a car is fun when it responds to a driver’s wishes, handles with precision, offers the ride comfort of a larger car and when the steering relays road conditions in a true, confident fashion that gives reassurance to the driver.

The Swift Sport does not really relay its enjoyable, fun side until you actually drive it. Impressively equipped, some of the standard kit includes smartphone link display audio, rear view camera, navigation, LED headlamps, rear electric windows and front fog

lights. Safety-wise, the car comes with six airbags, dual sensor brake support and adaptive cruise control. Lane departure prevention is also standard fit, as is auto air conditioning, privacy glass and Bluetooth. There is more to this

car than simply nice road manners and generous equipment levels. It’s claimed combined fuel return is 5.6 l/100km (50.4mpg). My average return measured 6.8 l/100km (41mpg) and that was still having fun and enjoying this car to the full.

Suzuki is Swift in name and nature.

Bring lifeboosting nature indoors IF YOU enjoy the great outdoors it’s worth remembering that with house plants, you can bring the life-boosting benefits of nature indoors anytime. There are lots of reasons to add house plants to your home.

Plants pump oxygen into the atmosphere. They also regulate humidity, which is better for your health. Some studies have even shown that house plants can improve sound levels, reduce stress and help you concentrate.

whites or yellows and give extra zing to rooms with cooler palettes such as blues or greys. You can also use plants to enhance a room’s scale. In a large airy room, for instance, tall, slender stems and a large potted plant or tree will enhance high ceilings, while also making a wide, open space feel less empty. Plants that like sunlight will often be put next to windows but this does more than help them grow. By framing the views from the garden or the outdoors, windowAdding green is good.

An attractive pot of the right size will not just look good but help your plant stay healthy as well. Just remember to match the scale of the pot to the height and spread of the plant – and make allowances for fast-growing greenery. Another option to consider are baskets. Neptune’s Somerton baskets are great for bigger plants. Shorter plants with good ground cover, look lovely in wide, shallow vessels like Neptune’s Sorrel terracotta pot while taller ceramic pots suit slimmer plants, and so on. With plants that trail, like ivy, think about using smaller pots and placing them up high – a mantelpiece, or EstablishEd ovEr 20 Neptune’s yEarsSomerton baskets (from €66) are great for bookshelf is ideal.

Survey finds that Dubs are boring at the BBQ AS DUBLINERS get ready to fire up the BBQ this summer, a SuperValu survey has revealed that the people of Dublin are boring BBQers. Over 40 percent of Dubs keep returning to sausages, chicken and burgers as their meat of choice during BBQ season, while surprisingly less than ten percent are planning on cooking one of the most delicious cuts of meat, a steak, on the BBQ. Over the coming months SuperValu is encouraging people in Dublin to #LoveMeat and think outside the box for not only their BBQs but all their summer meals. Irish meat, and in particular Irish beef, is recognised for its quality across the globe

and SuperValu’s survey results reveal quality is the most important consideration for people when buying meat followed closely by taste, range and value. Irish Beef is one of the most popular choices of meat and SuperValu’s beef is sourced from over 16,500 farms across Ireland. All SuperValu’s own brand meat is sourced in Ireland, Bord Bia certified and quality assured, and Chef Kevin Dundon backs the brand. “As a chef, I am very particular about the quality of the meat I use in any dish,” he said. “For me quality is of the upmost importance not only for taste but also to get the very best for your diet. As people are

reducing the amount of meat they eat therefore it is even more important to ensure that what you purchase is top quality Irish meat, sustainably farmed and sold through robust food safety systems. “Meat is versatile, particularly when barbequing and with the right recipes and guidance from your local SuperValu butcher it’s easy to prepare a great meal for any occasion.” Survey results also highlighted getting the freshest and best meat is why people chose to buy meat from the butcher counter. SuperValu stores in Dublin have 87 butchers working across 36 stores with over 1,400 years of combined experience so

shoppers are pretty much guaranteed the best advice at the counter. When visiting their local SuperValu butcher, the people of Dublin continue to opt for steak as their cut of choice; Sirloin Steak continues to

Bill’s

prove the most popular cut followed closely behind by Striploin. Dietician Aveen Bannon said: “Meat, and in particular Beef, is not only a good source of protein but an important source of nutrients.

“Beef is rich in Iron and Vitamin B12 and can be part of a healthy balanced diet. However, quality is crucial when buying beef so ensuring you buy the best possible beef from a butcher you trust such as your local SuperValu

Butcher is important.” For further inspiration check out the SuperValu website for delicious and healthy recipes to spice up your summer meals from BBQ Beef Brisket to Beef Tagine with Cous Cous.

Review of employment permits system opened by Minister Humphreys MINISTER for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys has announced the commencement of a mid-year Review of the Occupation Lists for employment permits for workers from outside the European Economic Area (EEA). “I am opening a public consultation on Ireland’s employment permits system,� said Minister Humphreys. “This is an opportunity for sector representative bodies and employers to provide enterprise perspectives on skills and labour shortages in their sector. “It follows my recent announcement of the outcome of the previous review. “Arising from this, I approved changes for occupations in the construction, transport and sports sectors. “The regular review process ensures that the employment permits system remains flexible. It allows us to meet skills and labour shortages in real-time.�

Minister for Enterprise, Business and Innovation, Heather Humphreys. Ireland operates a managed employment permit system, which maximises the benefits of economic migration while minimising the risk of disrupting the Irish labour market. To ensure that the employment permits system is responsive to changes in economic circumstances and labour market

conditions, the system

is managed through the operation of occupation lists. The lists, which are reviewed twice a year, fall into two categories – the first for in-demand occupations, the ‘Critical Skills Occupations List’, and the second for ineligible occupations, the ‘Ineligible Occupations List’, where a ready source of labour is already available from within Ireland and the (EEA). The review process is evidenced-based. It involves detailed consideration of the annual National Skills Bulletin and the Vacancy Overview Report, along with research undertaken by the Expert Group of Future
