Sam stepping up for organ donation awareness A NORTHSIDE boy who couldn’t eat his own birthday cake is waiting on an organ transplant that will transform his life. Sam Kinahan, from Baldoyle, who recently turned five, has been receiving dialysis treatment since he was four and a half months’ old. Sam attended the launch of the Irish Kidney

Association’s annual ‘Run for a Life’ event with his parents Chloe and Ivan, and his sister Ali (8). The family fun run will take place on May 25. Speaking at the launch, Chloe Kinahan said: “In his short lifetime my son Sam has been receiving dialysis treatment for four years and eight months and that's almost as long as he has been alive.

“Sam is a patient at Temple Street Hospital and has soldiered through his illness as a happy little boy who seldom complains. “One of the issues that comes with his condition is that he has never eaten properly because of his restrictive diet and he has primarily been tube fed.

A Bloom-ing great achievement for IWA THE Clontarf-based Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA) has teamed up with award-winning garden designer Leonie Cornelius to announce ‘The Great Outdoors’, a wheelchair-accessible show garden for Bloom 2019. The garden, which features a cabin nestled in the wilderness, aims to create a simple accessible place of wild beauty for wheelchair users. It is inspired by the organisation’s recent publication, ‘The Great Outdoors, A guide for Accessibility’, which provides guidance on applying accessible design to open up natural beauty spots to all, including trails, parks, beaches and waterways. Chief executive of the Irish Wheelchair Association, Rosemary Keogh, said Ireland is renowned for its natural beauty, incredible landscapes and breathtaking coastlines. “But given the nature and locations of the rugged and remote Irish landscape, accessing

I realised that exploring the great outdoors for many people is truly a challenge in accessibility. “In our garden, a simple cedar structure, open at the front and growing more protected at the back, sits nestled within a wild garden to become a peaceful, inclusive haven. “The structure design enables wheelchair users comfortable access, with a wide deck entrance and ample room for navigation, turning and companionship.” The show garden will also collaborate with talented textile artist Sara O’Neill of Eadach designs, who will explore its vision from an artistic perspective, creating some very special fabrics for the cabin’s interior. The Irish Wheelchair Association, with support from Sport Ireland and the Dormant Accounts Fund, launched ‘The Great Outdoors, A guide for Accessibility’ earlier this year. The publication provides developers and planners with detailed technical and practical advice across a range of environments on how to make Ireland more accessible to everyone.

Vehicle seizures highlighted ALMOST 6,000 vehicles have been seized in Dublin North since 2017. In total, 2,218 of the 5,871 vehicles seized during this period were in the Coolock District of the Dublin Metropolitan Region (DMR) North.  Dublin Bay North TD Tommy Broughan (Ind) sought the information from the Department of Justice and Equality through a Parliamentary Question (PQ). The information provided showed that there were 1,175 vehicle seizures in Coolock in 2017, 920 in 2018 and 123 in the first two months of 2019. Balbriggan had a total of 894 vehicles seized in the two years and two months specified and Raheny had 787 seized.  In Ballymun, 1,018 vehicles were seized in 2017, 863 in 2018 and 91 in the first two months of this year, totalling 1,972. The Department of Justice and Equality did not provide Deputy

Broughan with a breakdown on the reasons for the vehicle seizures in these areas. It said: “Statistics on vehicle seizures under section 41(1) of the Road Traffic Act 1994 (as amended) are available on PULSE, they are not compiled in such a way that easily allows for the disaggregation into specific offences (i.e. no tax, no NCT, no licence, etc.).” Deputy Broughan told Northside People: “It is very welcome but perhaps a little surprising to see such a drop in vehicle seizures under Section 41 of the 1994 Road Traffic Act between 2017 and 2018. “Each of the four Districts saw a reduction in the number of vehicles seized. “Of course, if the information could be dissected further to know the reasons for seizures we would be able to tell what areas have improved and what

innovation in this area are badly needed. “Hopefully the lower figures in 2018 are also a concrete reflection of huge efforts by local communities and An Garda Síochána to combat car crime and related serious antisocial behaviour,” he added.

Over the coming weeks, you’ll have numerous opportunities to press the flesh with candidates for the Local and European Elections. Have a list of your gripes prepared but be mindful of the limitations of their office, if elected. There’s not much point having a go at a prospective MEP over the lack of litter bins in your local park but that’s a conversation you can certainly have with candidates seeking seats on the council. Personally, I have a few axes to grind with my local authority, such as parking charges, derelict buildings, damaged speed ramps and the lack of enforcement of dog fouling laws. I’ll also be bending ears about candidates’ views on Local Property Tax (LPT). It’s sometimes easy to take democracy for granted but we are fortunate to live in a society where we

Campaign call-out to candidates A NATIONAL campaign has been launched to encourage all local and European elected representatives to champion and support the work of charities, community and voluntary organisations and social enterprises. The Wheel, supported

by representatives from some of Ireland’s leading charities, launched Community Matters last week which is aimed at the candidates contesting the local and European elections on May 24. Representatives from the Irish Cancer Society, the Irish Wheelchair

Society, Down Syndrome Ireland, SpunOut and Dóchas joined The Wheel’s chief executive, Deirdre Garvey, as they launched the campaign by unveiling a series of election posters in front of Dublin City Council’s Offices on Wood Quay. Speaking at the launch, Ms

Garvey said: “As the local and European election campaigns launch over the coming weeks, we want to ensure the focus remains where it should be - on the people in the communities whom candidates seek to

represent. The charity, community and voluntary sector is the backbone of every community across Ireland, supporting and advocating for the most vulnerable in society.” Ms Garvey said they

want to remind candidates of the vital work these organisations do and the richness they bring to life in Ireland. “It is important for candidates to publicly commit their support

for the non-profit sector and all of the people they represent ahead of the election on May 24,” she added. For more information visit www.wheel.ie/ elections

On graduating from college in 1989 he faced an uncertain future. Unemployment among newly trained teachers was very high. Substitute work was scarce and poorly paid. He spent the next two and a half years as a librarian for Dublin City Council.

Locals take part in St Vincent de Paul anniversary celebrations SOCIETY of St Vincent de Paul members from Malahide were among over 1,000 people who gathered in Dublin’s Convention Centre to celebrate the organisation’s 175 years in Ireland. SVP is the best-known and most widely supported organisation of social concern and action in Ireland with over 11,500 volunteers active in every county in the country. Since its foundation in 1844 it has been serving the poorest and most vulnerable in our communities. For decades the Society has provided help and support to those most in need through the Famine in the 19th century, two World

Wars, an Uprising, a Civil War and cycles of economic austerity. SVP national president Kieran Stafford said: “Sadly today we still see poverty in many different situations and circumstances. “There are nearly 800,000 living below the poverty line including 100,000 people at work; record numbers of homeless; 50 percent of lone parent families experiencing deprivation; and 61 percent of families struggling with education costs. “We know and meet the people behind the figures every week bringing friendship and support.” President Michael D Higgins formally opened the event, under the title 'Serving in Hope - Past,

HOST FAMILIES WANTED!

Present and Future’. Speakers traced the history of SVP and outlined its role in social justice and education. Members of Young SVP showed how its Youth Development Programme is shaping the volunteers of the future. Employment Minister Regina Doherty also addressed the gathering. Other speakers were Katriona O’Sullivan who shared her story from being a homeless, young mother, parenting on her own to being a university lecturer with a PhD and an advocate for equality and equity. Kilkenny Senior Hurling manager Brian Cody spoke about leadership.

RESIDENTS in East Wall are becoming increasingly frustrated with the public parking arrangements in their area, according to a local election candidate. Brian Mohan (FF), who will contest the elections this month in the north inner city area, said that as the area continues to expand as an attractive area for commercial investment, there are consequences. “The consequences of this tend to vary and I don’t think anyone can deny the regeneration or the facelift that these developments have brought to the whole Dublin 3 district,” said Mr Mohan. “However, the long-term residents, many of which have been born and bred here or reside in family homes that have come through generations, are having to deal with the less pleasant aspects of large-scale corporate investment in their area. “The battle to keep their parking space for which they have a permit is now hassle for these tenants and homeowners at least

Brian Mohan (FF) twice daily. “Those employed in the nearby office blocks or the people visiting for meetings need to be made more aware that they are on primarily residential streets and not in a private car park.” Mr Mohan called on Dublin City Council officials to “more stringently” enforce clamping on illegally parked cars and on vehicles without a valid permit. “Those returning home after work, those with young children or caring for someone elderly shouldn’t be forced to either pay for alternative parking or drive in circles to find somewhere else to park because their space has been illegally taken,” he said. “It is good news that the Local Authority has just appointed an engineer to survey the area and it’s crucial that the needs of residents are kept at the centre of any plans going forward. “It’s important that a solution to this problem is identified so that residents

no longer suffer.” In a statement, Dublin City Council said that in the East Wall area, from January 1 2019 to April 9 2019, there have been a total of 243 enforcement actions. “The total for P&D offences is 54, of which 32 were for No Valid Paid Parking and the remaining 22 were for ticket expired over 10 minutes,” a city council spokesperson told Northside People. “It should be remembered that 52 percent of people who park, do so using the Parking Tag App. “There will be no ticket or permit visible when people park using this method. “It could be the case that the vehicles parking in the East Wall area do so using Parking Tag, and the perception to the residents of the area is that people don’t pay.” The spokesperson added: “DSPS regularly patrol the area and the statistics show that when offending vehicles are detected, enforcement follows.”

Aiming high SEVEN Dubliners, including two from the Northside, are set to take on a major challenge for charity. Pat Moore, from Balrothery, and John Bradley, who lives in Finglas, will be taking on the Four Peaks Challenge over the May Bank Holiday weekend. They are part of a 22-strong team from Grafton Merchanting ROI, which includes brands such as Chadwicks and Heiton Buckely, who will take on the challenge for Focus Ireland, CMRF Crumlin, Pieta House and Cystic Fibrosis Ireland. The route they will navigate will be Slieve Donard in County Down, Lugnaquilla in County Wicklow, Carrauntoohil in County Kerry and Mweelrea in County Mayo. The challenge will take place from May 2-5, with Grafton Merchanting ROI aiming to raise in excess of €40,000 for the four charities that have been “chosen with great care”. Patrick Atkinson, chief executive of Grafton Merchanting, said they have a long and proud history of working with, and donating to charities that raise funds for those most in need in Ireland. “On behalf of all the team in Grafton Merchanting ROI, I wish the chosen team of 22 employees all of the best in this endeavor,” said Mr Atkinson.

Children dig deep for tree planting project CHILDREN at a Northside school recently took part in a climate action global initiative. Pupils at Belgrove National Schools in Clontarf planted a native silver birch tree in their school grounds as part of ‘Easy Treesie’. Despite several surveys by the school’s green committee only one small space was to be found available for tree planting on its grounds. However, the children were not to be deterred in their aim to join this national initiative to plant one tree for each of Ireland’s million school children.  Fortunately, the local

Clontarf Hospital came to the rescue. Children had noticed on their walks to school that the hedgerow bordering the hospital and the road had room for more trees as many of the existing rowan, elder and hawthorn trees had been damaged in recent storms. So the team from Belgrove did a ‘Feet first Friday’ exercise, walking the 10 minutes to the hedgerow in need of a cure where they set to work planting native saplings, one per child. Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Richard Bruton attended the launch.

“Planting trees absorbs carbon,” he said. “It can play an important role tackling Climate Disruption in a real and meaningful way. “I am delighted to join ‘Easy Treesie’ and Belgrove National Schools to plant 30 trees in Clontarf Hospital.” The hospital’s chief executive Michelle Fanning organised tree-themed fruit snacks to thank the children and volunteer supporters when they had finished their planting party. “We are delighted to welcome this initiative, which will be of lasting benefit to our hospital community and local neighbours,” said Ms

Fanning. “Research shows that patients who look out on a green landscape experience a faster recovery and this is no surprise. “The new trees will help screen the hospital from traffic noise and fumes on the busy road as well as giving extra privacy to the patients in this recently upgraded facility. “They will also improve biodiversity in the area, sustaining a range of bird and insect species.” The ‘Easy Treesie’ initiative is organised under the auspices of the charity, Crann, founded in 1986, with the aim of ‘Re-leafing’

Ireland. Orla Farrell, Easy Treesie project leader, said: “This will be the 14,004th tree planted by the project since Minister Bruton planted a small oak on the week of our planting event in 2017. “Trees have planted stretching from Enniskillen’s Rotary Forest to Cork’s Harper’s Island Wetland Centre and from Robswalls Park, Malahide to Ransboro, Sligo,” said Ms Farrell.   “Schools such as Gaelscoil Bhaile Munna have already planted a tree for every pupil in their school as part of the target of planting one million trees – one for each schoolchild in Ireland.”

The tree planting project in Clontarf was a big success.

Search is on for tidiest estate SWORDS Tidy Towns has once again joined forces with Greyhound Household to track down the town’s tidiest estate. Fifteen estates entered the competition last year and it is hoped even more will take up the challenge in 2019. The competition begins on May 15, with

judging taking place in mid-July. Estates will receive marks for the upkeep of common areas (40 percent), gardens (30 percent) and house exteriors (30 percent). The winning estate will receive €500 for spending on common areas, free skips for clean-ups and a winners’

plaque. Swords Tidy Towns chairperson Ken Duffy said Swords has made great strides in competing in the National Tidy Towns competition over the past few years. “We have won a silver medal for the second year running and are continuously moving up

the ranks, year on year,” said Mr Duffy. “We hope the Tidy Estates competition will help us improve our position even further.” Greyhound Household managing director John Brosnan said: “We know from our dealings with the dedicated team at Swords Tidy Towns

Committee, the amount of time and hard work they put into enhancing the area. “This is reflected in the town's continued climb through the Tidy Town's rankings. We hope this year’s Tidy Estates competition will give their efforts a further boost."

Councillor praises youth interest in the environment A NORTHSIDE councillor has praised the interest that young people are taking in the environment. Cllr Joe Newman (Ind), who represents the Swords Local Electoral Area (LEA) on Fingal County Council, said it is heartwarming to see young people sending strong messages to their politicians and their national governments about global warming and informing them of their concerns for the environment. “They are especially concerned about the damage that plastics are doing to marine life in particular,” he told Northside People.  “This awareness of our young people and

their concerns for our environment should be noted by all local politicians, because a healthy environment starts right here on our doorsteps. “I invite all, but particularly, the young people of Swords to join me in my campaign for a woodland amenity in the north county region. “I have been raising this issue with the parks department of the county council for some time now.” Cllr Newman said people need to be able to get away from their stressful lives and enjoy the beauty of nature. “A woodland area would help mitigate against carbon emissions, air and noise

pollution caused by cars and the ever growing aircraft traffic at Dublin Airport,” he said. Separately, Cllr Newman is reminding the young people of Swords especially, that if they are eligible to vote they should check the register on voter. ie to ensure they are registered. “If they are not registered they should register on the supplemental register before May 7 to vote in the local elections,” he added. “When registered it is important that they exercise their vote to have their voices heard by the local authority.” The Local Elections take place on May 24.

information Santry jockey Fertility evening in Dublin jumps at charity opportunity Callum Lavery A NORTHSIDE jockey is hoping to stir-up the competition as he raises money for kidney research. Santry local Frank Brady is competing in this year’s Punchestown Kidney Research Fund Charity Horse Race on May 4. Around 25 riders will be taking part and each of them must first raise €1,500 in order to enter. Proceeds of this year’s race will go towards new dialysis machines for Temple Street Children's Hospital. Mr Brady has been involved in the event for the past 15 years, riding in nine races. The Lorcan Crescent

man said he’s more than happy to get involved despite luckily never having a family member affected by kidney problems. “It’s such a great cause, the Punchestown Kidney Research Fund and it’s a fabulous day out,” he told Northside People. “They get 30,000 people there on the day and I think kids are free. There’s 25 riders and it’s just a fantastic buzz but the bottom line is that it is for charity.” Mr Brady, a Dublin bus driver for the past 12 years, has been riding horses since he was 15 but unfortunately reckons the event on May 4 will probably be his last competition. “I ride out for

champion hurdle winning trainer Gavin Cromwell and will be riding for him in the race,” he said. “I started with Jim Bolger in Carlow at 15 and was a work rider with Jenny Pitman in Lambourn for six years leading up a Grand National winner and a Gold Cup runner-up in the ‘90s. As I'm 49 it will probably be my last race.” Mr Brady joked that he needs to give younger riders a chance to enter the charity event. “It’s hard to get into,” he added. “Every year there are a couple of hundred jockeys trying to enter and only 25 get in; it’s time to give someone

else a turn.” The Punchestown Kidney Research Fund Charity Horse Race was founded by James Nolan in 1990 and is traditionally the last race of the festival. The race is a one mile and seven furlongs flat race run over the Punchestown Championship Racetrack. Mr Nolan, who had progressive renal failure from birth, began the event after receiving a transplant from his sister Catherine in April, 1987. Following a full recovery he decided he wanted to give back and established the race with the support of Punchestown Race Course and The Turf Club.

DOGS TRUST CANINE COLUMN

Beach safety for your dog MOST dogs, like their owners, love a trip to the beach so here are a few tips to make your beach trip safe and enjoyable for you, your dog and other beachgoers. • Look up your nearest beach online to check your dog is allowed on the beach, if he has to be leashed at all times and if there are certain hours he can be off lead. • Check the tide times before you leave home as there may not be much beach when you get there if the tide is in. • Don’t forget to bring your poo bags so you can pick up after your dog. • Make sure your dog has his collar and ID securely attached and also that his microchip details are up to date (legal requirement) just in case he gets lost. • Ensure you have plenty of cool fresh water (sea water will make him sick), a portable drinking device, some tasty treats, dog safe sun cream and a few towels to dry off your dog and protect your car seats. • Double check your dog is secured safely in your car as the excitement of a trip to the beach

can be too much and he may be likely to bolt out of your car door. • Remember that dogs can easily injure their paws on razor shells so try to avoid shelled areas if possible. • If you plan to spend the day at the beach with your dog, don’t forget to bring a large parasol to create some shade.  Also, dig down

in the sand and make a nice little pit for him to lie in. • Some dogs like to eat shells and washed up fish so keep a close eye on your dog, if he picks up anything he shouldn’t, offer him a treat and discard the unwanted item when he drops it to get his treat. • If your dog is allowed off lead,

please ensure he has excellent recall and if you see another dog on lead, pop your dog on his if there is any chance at all he will approach the on-lead dog. • Also if walking early on the beach, keep an eye out for horses and put your dog on his lead as soon as you see them.

Many horses get spooked easily by dogs and many dogs that would not ordinarily chase can’t resist something so large racing past, creating a very dangerous situation for your dog, the horse and the horse rider, should the horse panic. • Sand is far more tiring to run or walk on than grass so your dog might tire more easily. • Not all dogs are good swimmers so in areas where your dog is allowed off lead, be careful he doesn’t swim out too far. • On hot days, watch out for signs of overheating such as excessive panting, drooling, uncoordinated movements, vomiting and/or diarrhoea. • Lastly, rinse your dog off before you get into the car, most dogs like to clean themselves and the residual salt and sand on their coats can upset their stomachs.

Maggie

The Dublin People has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogs. Top dog this week is Maggie, a beautiful and bright 9-year-old female Labrador cross looking for a calm and understanding home to call her own. She can find the world to be quite scary, so she will need some help to grow her confidence, but once Maggie gets to know you, she will lavish you in love! Maggie would love a home in a quiet area with a loving family to show her that she doesn’t need to be scared anymore. Despite her fears, Maggie is a very brave girl that just needs time to build up her confidence. She loves nothing more than belly rubs and chasing tennis balls! If you think you can offer Maggie a loving home, then contact Dogs Trust on 01-8791000.

Young people from Blossom Ireland pictured during their visit to AIB Raheny to experience the world of work. PHOTO: ANNA WICKHAM

Raheny-based charity Blossom participates in workplace tour A GROUP of young people from a Northside-based charity that supports young people with intellectual disabilities to become independent visited AIB Raheny to experience the world of work.   The teens, aged 1618, were taking part in Blossom Ireland’s Teen Development Programme. During the workplace tour, the group got ‘hands on’ experience of how they can use a bank including how to open a bank account and use an ATM. Speaking about the tour, Fiona Freyne, Branch Manager at AIB Raheny, said: “At AIB, we try to become involved with local charities and make a positive contribution to the local community. “That’s why we were delighted to host a workplace tour with the young people from the Blossom Ireland

Teen Development Programme. “Two members of our team, Noel Thomas and Emma Canning, worked together with Blossom Ireland to create an educational and fun schedule for the group. “We demonstrated how to use the bank but more importantly, we gave them an insight into the world of work. “The visit also gave us all a much greater insight and understanding into intellectual disability; the young people we met had so much potential to be active in the community and to work.” Auveen Bell, cofounder and chief executive of Blossom Ireland, based in Raheny, commended the team at AIB for their genuine interest in the programme. “The team at AIB Raheny couldn’t do enough for us,” said Ms Bell.

“They tailored the visit to what our group needed and even opened the branch to us on a Saturday. “At Blossom Ireland, we are passionate about ensuring that our young people are as prepared as possible for life as an adult. That includes preparing them for the world of work. “We can see that they have their own passions and interests and would be a valuable asset to the workforce.” The Teen Development Programme is a relatively new initiative for Blossom Ireland. As well as workplace tours, the practical education programme teaches everyday life skills like using public transport, ordering food in a café, budgeting and searching for a job. The programme marks a change in focus for Blossom Ireland from providing seasonal camps to providing

a structured support service for young people with intellectual disabilities, focused on building their life skills. Speaking about the new programme and the change of focus for the charity, Ms Bell said: “The families and young people with whom we work are at the centre of everything we do. “It is vital that the services that we provide with our limited resources meet their needs. “When we listened to the families with whom we work during a consultation in 2018, we learned that what was needed – far more than seasonal camps – was a structured skills programme to help young people with intellectual disability prepare for life after school.” Blossom Ireland was established in 2010 by local women Auveen Bell and Orla Crowe.

Film Review 

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile TED Bundy appears to be back in fashion. The infamous American serial killer of the 1970s has recently been the subject of a Netflix series, ‘Conversations with a Killer’, and now a feature film, ‘Extremely wicked, shockingly evil and vile’. Interestingly, the director of both offerings is the same Joe Berlinger, who started out as a documentary filmmaker, and on the basis of his new feature, should have kept going in that direction. The movie tells the Bundy story from the point of view of his partner, Elizabeth Kloepfer (played by Lily Collins), who for years refused to believe that her boyfriend was a murderer. Bundy himself is played by Zac Efron, with turns from John Malkovich as the judge and strangely, Big Bang Theory’s

Jim Parsons as the prosecutor. Everything seems reasonable so far, a decent cast and an interesting subject matter. But the film’s problems, and there are many, quickly begin to make themselves apparent. For a start, the first rule of cinematic storytelling is to show and not tell, something first time screenwriter, Michael Werwie is hopefully aware of. And yet, we see none of Bundy’s murders, nor do we get any inclination that he is in any way dangerous or threatening. We are instead told that he is, and then in the second hour are taken to a trial and asked to care about what happens. Of course we don’t. The dialogue is clunky with the actors sometimes using word for word

transcription from the trial which feels out of place and ironically contrived, and the file footage at the end only serves to reinforce the feeling that you have been watching a staged reenactment. There really is little point and very little drama to this film that ends up feeling like a TV movie in the days when that term had negative connotations. Again ironically, this offering will go straight to TV as it’s produced by Sky Cinema, with a theatrical release also. If you want to know more about Ted Bundy, we recommend you watch a documentary, and award this film a review score of 2 disappointing stars.      PAUL O’ROURKE 

Students help launch film competition CEANN Comhairle Seán Ó’Fearghaíl welcomed students from Gardiner Street Primary School to Leinster House to mark the Houses of the Oireachtas’ collaboration with the FÍS Film Project Awards 2019. As part of the year-long commemoration of the sitting of the first Dáil in 1919, FÍS has introduced a special category in this year’s competition called Dáil100. Students will be encouraged to commemorate the anniversary of the first Dáil, celebrate its legacy and educate themselves and others about parliamentary democracy. Speaking at the event, the Ceann

Comhairle said: “I am delighted that FÍS are collaborating with the Houses of the Oireachtas to promote training and participation in the film making process. “The Oireachtas will commemorate the sitting of the first Dáil with a programme of events under the Dáil100 programme and our engagement with FÍS will allow young people to connect with their Parliament in a creative way whilst also teaching them vital skills.” Bernadette Meagher, FÍS manager, said: “The Institute of Art, Design & Technology (IADT) and our FÍS Film Project partners, the Professional Development Service

Teachers (PDST) are delighted to be part of the Houses of the Oireachtas’ year-long celebration and commemoration of 100 years of Dáil Éireann. “We look forward to receiving entries where Ireland’s youngest filmmakers have the opportunity to mark the centenary in an imaginative and creative way.” Entries are accepted up until the end of June and the winning entries will be celebrated at a ceremony in the Helix Theatre in DCU in November.

More than 2,000 young people, representing every county in the Republic of Ireland, descended on the National Sports Campus to celebrate and showcase their community action projects at the awards. A total of 220 youth groups took part, having worked on Citizenship Projects focused on improving the entrants’ local communities in areas such as equality, homelessness, climate change, social inclusion, community events, mental health and culture. Speaking at the awards, Seán Campbell, chief executive of Foróige, said: “There’s a reason this programme has lasted 50 years; it works. It gives young people the opportunity to grow and learn, but perhaps even more importantly to get to know their community by being a leader in it. “Year after year, attending these awards, I’m amazed by the ingenuity, integrity and grit of Foróige young Joey’s 6th Class, Balbriggan. people.”

Enjoy a local tipple on holiday ENJOYING a tipple is an integral part of the holiday experience and - purely for research purposes of course – we’ve travelled the globe to examine the drinking cultures of our favourite destinations.

deserves a visit is U Fleku, a legendary beer hall in Prague that has been around since the 15th century. It provides stunning examples of traditional Czech food, architecture and beer.

FRANCE:

Local tipple: Any pilsner or lager that strikes your fancy.

When the French drink, they take their time and they drink wine. And while they might have a reputation for being sophisticated snobs, there’s no questioning their good taste. In France wine and food go together like a baguette and a chunk of brie. Locals drink wine with most meals and despite regularly eating rich foods like pastries, cheeses and cream sauces, the country has a remarkably low obesity rate. It’s all to do with their method of consumption. While we tend to shovel down processed foods as if we were eating our last meal for a month, the French take their time. They often have several courses, with a glass of wine in between each one. And because wine and conversation play essential roles in their social ritual, getting a little tipsy on a bottle of Bordeaux actually helps digestion by slowing things down.

RUSSIA:

Vodka is a Russian word, and we all know where it leads. If you want to get wasted, drinking vodka like a Russian will take you to the promised land of blackouts and projectile vomiting. If you go to Russia, don’t count on fancy cocktails. Russians like to shoot their vodka straight up, although some drink a little beer in between shots. True connoisseurs may frown upon the idea of mixing vodka and beer in the stomach, but there is a Russian proverb that states, ‘Vodka without beer is your money wasted.’ When the French drink, they take their time and they drink wine. Local tipple: Vodka, served cool and in a small wine glass.

GREECE:

People drink moderate amounts of wine, beer, and spirits in a social Local tipple: Champagne, Bordeaux, setting and while Greeks consume Beaujolais, Bourgogne. incredible amounts of booze, public displays of drunkenness are rare.

Frank has drawn from his personal experience on the streets of Dublin on the day of the Dublin Monaghan bombings to create his debut novel.

These two young people then set out on a quest to discover who is responsible, facing confrontation with dark forces in Irish and British society. This thriller is set among the cultural and political life of Dublin in the 1970s. Angie and Joe's relationship deepens as they delve into the shocking political and criminal landscape surrounding those in high places with the blood of innocents on their hands. But the more they find out, the deeper they become embroiled in a world they don't understand, and the consequences could be devastating Published by Mercier Press, A Conspiracy of Lies, is available nationwide and online.

Silver blondes and shimmering grey tones remain a massive hair colour trend this season but maintaining a clean bright colour can be tricky. These bright tones can often become dull and brassy, developing yellow undertones over time. Klorane Shampoo with Centaury combats brassiness and is a natural alternative to traditional synthetic purple shampoos which can leave hair feeling dry. With extract of Centaury, a blue flowering plant harvested in France, the Klorane Shampoo with Centaury enhances the radiance of white, grey, silver and platinum blonde hair. The blue pigment from the Centaury flower reduces brassiness and neutralizes yellow tones, leaving cool-toned hair looking and feeling bright and revitalised. Klorane is available from selected pharmacies nationwide.

ONE way to instantly identify the historical style of a home is by its windows. Sash windows from the Georgian era remain a thing of beauty, while the bay windows, so loved by the Victorians, still delight the eye. Today large-scale, light enhancing aluminium window frames are fast becoming the 21st century version of a modern classic. The reason, according to windows expert Jim Toal of Fairco Windows and Doors, is because of our love affair with light. “Aluminium’s strength means thinner frames and larger windows, so huge expanses of glass are now possible allowing you to flood your home with natural light,” said Jim. Our fondness for home and design TV shows is also playing a part with Room To Improve regularly featuring large windows and walls of glass that blur the lines between indoors and

When it comes to home design, especially new homes, the focus is very much on the look and not so much on how the house functions over time or how it is going to enhance the wellbeing of the people who live there. Speaking at the recent Optimise Home Event, Dr Michael Keane, Neuroscientist and CEO of the Actualize Neurofeedback Clinic said our environment is crucial to our wellbeing and design has a fundamental role to play in the quality of our dayto-day life. “Most of us get frustrated in our home as we trip over things left at the bottom of the stairs or are desperately trying to find something you were convinced you left on the kitchen table but is no longer there,” he added. Dr Keane wants Irish people to start thinking about how ‘you’ want to live in your home. “What are you trying to achieve from the renovation or extension?

Major jobs boost for Dublin THE world’s largest job site is to create 600 new roles at its Dublin-based headquarters for Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). Indeed chief executive Chris Hyams made the announcement at the company’s newly opened Capital Dock headquarters. Indeed opened its Dublin office in 2012 and currently employs over 1,000 people in the city centre. Recruitment has already started for the new roles across marketing, finance, strategy, operations, sales, client services, HR and business development, which will help companies across EMEA to maximise the return on their recruitment spend, while continuing to offer the best job search experience for jobseekers. Indeed hope to fill roles within the next five years. At the event the company also announced its new partnership with the Irish Olympic team for

Tokyo 2020. Indeed will be supporting the journey of all Olympic hopefuls as they aim for qualification and a place on Team Ireland. Indeed’s Dublin based workforce welcomed two of their new Team Ireland ambassadors: two-time Olympic Pentathlete Natalya Coyle and first time Olympic hopeful, gymnast Rhys McClenaghan. Thomas Barr and Sanita Puspure were also announced as Indeed Team Ireland ambassadors. Minister for Business, Enterprise, and Innovation, Heather Humphreys, Minister of State for Higher Education, Mary Mitchell O’Connor and IDA chief executive Martin Shanahan attended the launch. Chris Hyams said: “Indeed exists to help people get jobs, and as our business grows rapidly, we need even more people to help us

Pictured at the announcement in Dublin was first time Olympic hopeful, gymnast Rhys McClenaghan. PHOTO: ©INPHO/BILLY STICKLAND with this mission. “I am delighted to be announcing 600 new roles in Dublin, a city that Indeed arrived in only seven years ago with just three staff. As the Irish economy has grown, Indeed has had the opportunity to grow

a strong EMEA HQ here with an abundance of talented staff.” Speaking about the new partnership with Team Ireland, Mr Hyams said: “Team Ireland represents the pursuit of excellence and the focus needed to achieve a goal.

“We are very proud to be part of the journey to Tokyo 2020 with all the Irish athletes hoping to realise their dreams. “We hope our nearly 9,000 employees all over the world can learn from and be inspired by the many stories

of determination and success that the Irish Olympic team will share with us.” Minister Humphreys said it is very positive that a leading international technology firm like Indeed will be significantly expanding its

workforce in Ireland. “The company’s decision represents a real vote of confidence in Ireland as a place to do business and shows that the country remains highly attractive to overseas investors,” she said.

Parents get leave and benefit boost FROM November all new parents in employment or selfemployment will be able to avail of a new Parental Leave scheme offering two weeks’ leave and benefit to spend with their new babies during their first year. Ultimately, parents will be able to benefit from seven weeks’ leave each under the scheme as it develops incrementally over the next three years. Minister for Justice and Equality Charlie Flanagan has secured the approval of Government for the priority drafting of the necessary legislation to introduce the leave entitlement. Arrangements are currently underway in the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection to ensure the necessary legislation is in place for the benefit and that the administrative and technical solutions are in place in advance of November for the operation of this scheme. It is estimated that up to 60,000 parents could benefit from the scheme in a full year. Speaking about the importance of the scheme, Employment Minister Regina Doherty said: “Parents, children and society in general will all benefit from the introduction of this scheme. “Firstly, in that formative first

It is estimated that up to 60,000 parents could benefit from the scheme in a full year.

Employment Minister Regina Doherty year of life, children now have the opportunity to spend more time with both parents. Secondly, on top of the recently introduced Paternity Benefit, this extends the leave benefits available to fathers. “Crucially this new benefit is non-transferable and is available on a ‘use it or lose it’ basis. “This, I hope, will help to incentivise fathers to take more time off work to care for their children than has been the case up to now. “The evidence shows that when fathers take a more significant and meaningful share in the parenting of their children the individual

family benefits - and so does wider society, as by encouraging more fathers to take time off, we are in a position to challenge the existing culture regarding work and gender.” Minister Flanagan said this is an important support for working parents in Ireland. “The General Scheme of the Bill, which I am publishing today, provides for paid parental leave for each parent of a child under one, whether employed or self-employed,” said Minister Flanagan. “The leave will initially be set at two weeks, increasing on a phased basis over the next three years. “This is in addition to existing maternity, paternity and adoptive leave entitlements. It will provide working parents with further opportunity to spend more time with their baby in its crucial first year of development.”

Exhibition

HAUGHEY | GREGORY Fishamble’s Haughey | Gregory by Colin Murphy, directed by Conall Morrison, follows the deal made between Tony Gregory and Charles Haughey in 1982, when Gregory took a surprise Dáil seat - and suddenly found himself holding the balance of power. Can Gregory use his vote to achieve something for his constituents? To do so, he will have to face off against the dominant personality of Irish politics. Following a short, sold out tour in 2018 to the Abbey Theatre, Mountjoy Prison, Dáil Éireann and Croke Park, Fishamble is now touring Haughey | Gregory and it’s happening at Draiocht Blanchardstown on Saturday, May 4 at 8pm. Full tour details at fishamble.com.

Tusla is the state body working with vulnerable families. We work in your local area and in each community across Ireland. It is TUSLA who decides when a child may need to come into care, when we do, we try to keep children in their own community, close to family and all that is familiar. You can help us to make that possible, providing care for a child in your local community.

Support we provide for foster carers

You will receive thorough training which will help you to understand what is involved in being a foster parent You will have opportunities to meet current foster parents. There is a weekly allowance provided to meet the needs of the child. Each child in foster care has a medical card.
