Howth rescue

Rail security

Days of old

Two people and a dog had to be rescued by the Coast Guard in Howth after they found themselves trapped by an incoming tide while out walking.

Lack of Irish Rail staff is leading to fare evasion and putting passenger safety at risk at train stations, writes our columnist.

Double success for Northside beaches FINGAL County Council has welcomed news that Portmarnock’s famous Velvet Strand has retained its Blue Flag status. And there was further good news for Portmarnock, along with the Burrow Beach in Sutton, as they were both awarded Green Coast awards at a ceremony which was held in Miltown Malbay in County Clare last week. The Blue Flag is an international award for beach excellence and is operated in Ireland by An Taisce, with support from the Department of Housing, Planning and Local Government. It is presented to beaches and marinas that have excellent water quality and achieve high standards across a wide range of other criteria, including environmental

The Green Coast Award is given to sites which have excellent water quality but may be less developed and less populated than Blue Flag beaches. Welcoming the news of the awards, Mayor of Fingal, Cllr Anthony Lavin, said: “This is great news for Fingal and hopefully it will be another warm summer which will allow thousands of local residents and visitors enjoy the many wonderful beaches across

Fingal.” Fingal County Council’s Director of Operations, David Storey, said: “Portmarnock is one of the most renowned beaches in the country and it is great news that it has once again been awarded this honour. “It is also great that Portmarnock, along with the Burrow beach in Sutton, have both been awarded the Green Coast Award. Crews from Fingal County Council’s operations departments will once again continue

to play a key role in maintaining all beaches across Fingal and ensure they are kept clean and litter free during the busy summer months. “While the council will continue to play its part, I would encourage all beach users to ensure that they remove all their waste and unwanted items as they depart our beaches.” Mr Storey added: Litter bins are provided on all our beaches so there is no excuse for leaving rubbish strewn on beaches.”

DART security improvements are welcomed DUBLIN Bay North TD Tommy Broughan has welcomed plans by Iarnród Éireann for increased security measures on the DART. Deputy Broughan (Ind) has consistently been calling for more security at DART stations and on trains following concerns expressed by commuters about anti-social and criminal behaviour. He recently asked the Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross, about Irish Rail’s plans to introduce a confidential text message scheme to allow members of the public to report anti-social behaviour. In its reply, Irish Rail informed Deputy Broughan that the text

alert service will be introduced in the coming weeks. It will enable customers to discretely report anti-social behaviour incidents to a live monitored centre, which will allow for security personnel and/ or gardaí to be alerted and dispatched as required. Irish Rail plans to publicise the new service extensively to its customers. Deputy Broughan was also informed that security patrol levels on the DART have doubled in the past 18 to 24 months and resources will continue to be reviewed and enhanced as necessary. The company said that 128 of its 144 DART carriages are now equipped with

CCTV and a central monitoring facility has been established across the network. The remaining 16 carriages are to be fitted with CCTV in the coming weeks. Deputy Broughan was also told there are in-cab screens in around 50 percent of the DART fleet to ensure a driver can bring a train to a halt and view the live feed from CCTV. This is to be installed in the remainder of the carriages over the coming months. Deputy Broughan said he welcomed the reply he had received from Jim Meade, chief executive of Iarnród Éireann, about the improved security measures.

“There have been a number of unacceptable incidents of anti-social or dangerous behaviour in recent years and it is good to see a transport provider take steps to address the matter directly,” Deputy Broughan stated. “Of course, we shouldn’t have to have increased security on trains or at stations but unfortunately an increase in anti-social behaviour has led to this need. “ I commend Irish Rail for taking action and will be liaising with constituents and commuters to ensure that the difference is being felt on the ground by those using the services.”

Two people and their dog rescued in Howth THE Irish Coast Guard in Howth recently came to the rescue of two people and a dog after they were cut off by a rising tide. While out on exercise, the Irish Coast Guard boat from Howth was tasked to the scene of the incident. The

crew immediately responded and began a search for the casualties. Fortunately, they were quickly located, taken aboard the boat and returned to a safe location ashore. A spokesperson for the Irish Coast Guard

said the individuals involved did the right thing by calling 112 when they realised they were in trouble. He said: “Be careful when walking on shorelines as tides can rise quickly and areas can be cut off faster than you expect.”

Max the dog is brought to safety by members of the Irish Coast Guard in Howth.

It’s time to put staff back into our DART stations. FILE PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA Then, of course, there’s the ongoing issue of anti-social behaviour on trains and at isolated stations. Clongriffin station, for instance, feels like it’s in no man’s land and has been the scene of violent incidents and vandalism in the past. A relative of mine had an unsettling experience there last week when he was approached for money on the platform by a drug addict. He felt extremely vulnerable and anxious as he endured what seemed like the longest wait ever for his train. Again, the station was unstaffed. If he had been attacked, there was nobody around to help him or call the

We managed to buy tickets for the homeward leg but the journey was not without its dramas. Two teenagers got on at Malahide and brazenly started rolling joints. Then, when we disembarked at our station, some brain-dead idiots had set the bushes on fire beside the platform before hopping on board the train. In the absence of any Iarnród Éireann staff, it was left to the passengers to put the flames out with

How much would it have cost to have one member of staff at the station? It seems to me that it’s a case of penny wise, pound foolish. The establishment of a dedicated transport police unit, with powers of arrest, should be the ultimate goal. Personally, though, I won’t be holding my breath waiting for our politicians to act.

Brea (9) is granted her wish to have novel published A NINE-year-old girl from north county Dublin has realised her dream of becoming a published author and illustrator. Brea Mullarkey’s adventure novel, ‘Lost and Found (A Bedtime Story for my Brothers)’, was published with the help of Make-A-Wish, in partnership with Eason and Gill Publishing, who have printed 200 copies of the book. Her book tells the story of three children living on Achill Island and the adventures that await when they visit the forbidden beach caves. Brea is in remission from acute myeloid leukaemia and is doing really well. Brea explained that her two brothers love

adventure stories, which provided her with inspiration for the book. “Every night I sit in their room and tell them a story until they fall asleep,” she said. “Then I sneak back to my own room and enjoy the peace and quiet until I fall asleep too. I wrote ‘Lost & Found’ for my brothers.” Children’s author Catherine Doyle assisted Brea in writing her book and well-known illustrator Fatti Burke also helped. Proceeds from the sale of the book at its launch night will be shared between Crumlin Children’s Hospital and Make-A-Wish. All future proceeds will go to the hospital, which was part

of Brea’s wish. Her mother, Elaine, said Brea has had some tough times with her illness but the journey she has been on to make this wish happen has just been wonderful. “Brea has always shown an interest in books and writing,” she stated. “It is truly amazing that she can now touch and feel her very own book that she created and is now published. I cannot tell you the value of this wish to Brea and the whole family.” Make-A-Wish Ireland aims to grant the wishes of children living with life-threatening medical conditions. Research shows that children who have wishes granted are

more likely to build the physical and emotional strength they need to fight a critical illness. This improves their quality of life and produces better health outcomes. John Keane, general Manager of Eason, O’Connell Street, said: “To see Brea’s face when she saw the final print version of her book was absolutely amazing. We are honoured to launch her book here today.” Children’s author Catherine Doyle described Brea as a truly special girl with a huge imagination. “Her book is a testament to her determination and creativity, as well as all the love and support that surrounds her,” she

Brea is pictured with her parents, Tommy and Elaine, at Eason on O’Connell Street, at the launch of her book, ‘Lost and Found (A Bedtime Story for My Brothers)’. said. “I’m delighted to have been part of Brea’s inspiring journey to publication and suspect this book will be the first of many for her.” Illustrator Fatti Burke said Brea’s imagination and ambition really resonated with her. “The dedication she put into the writing and illustrating of her very own book is something to be admired, and the end result speaks for itself,” she stated.

Gum litter campaign launched in Raheny A CAMPAIGN has been launched with the aim of positively influencing people’s behaviour towards gum disposal. Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Richard Bruton, officially launched the Gum Litter Taskforce’s education campaign in Raheny Village The Gum Litter Taskforce (GLT) has been successful to date in changing the public’s behaviour by encouraging correct gum disposal through a targeted

education and awareness campaign. The 2018 campaign maintained an all-timehigh of 93 percent of people stating that they regard chewing gum as litter, up from 74 percent when the campaign first began in 2007, pointing to the attitudinal impact which the campaign has had to date. Research commissioned by the Gum Litter Taskforce and conducted by Kantar Millward Brown during the 2018 campaign has highlighted the

campaign’s positive effect on people’s behaviour towards gum disposal. The latest results show that 88 percent of people said that they always dispose of their gum correctly, up from 54 percent when the campaign first began. Speaking at the official launch of the 2019 campaign, Minister Bruton said: “Tackling gum litter is part of a much wider challenge – how we dispose of waste properly and use our resources effectively more

generally. “Litter on our streets is a very tangible, visible example of the kind of damage that is being done. The GLT campaign has made great progress over the years in enacting positive behavioural and attitudinal change amongst the public when it comes to proper gum disposal, but more is required. Together, we must continue to work hard to tackle the issue of littered gum for the betterment of our environment.”

Major Balbriggan plan unveiled THE future of Balbriggan is set to be transformed thanks to a €20m plus plan that has been shaped by the residents of Ireland’s youngest town. Main Street and its surrounding areas look set for a massive transformation following the results of the Our Balbriggan survey, which was taken by over 4,000 local people. Twenty-five percent of the local population, aged over 11, took part in the survey to prioritise a list of suggested improvements for the Our Balbriggan 2019-2025 Rejuvenation

Plan, launched earlier this month. A Balbriggan Leadership Group, chaired by Professor Brian MacCraith, President of Dublin City University, had prepared a menu of different initiatives for the €20million rejuvenation plan – an ambitious new vision for the town. From a menu of potential improvements, transforming the Main Street and connecting it to a reimagined harbour area were the top choices across all age groups in the public realm and place-making pillar of a survey which will become

The reimagined viaduct and Quay Street area.

a model for towns around the country. Within the next four years, the heart of Main Street will be redeveloped, repurposing existing derelict buildings and improving access to the Bracken River, landscaped green areas, water features, pathways and an event space. Balbriggan’s harbour area will be reimagined as a leisure destination which makes the most of its scenic location adjacent to the town’s beach, attracting visitors, walkers and diners. It will connect with a rejuvenated Quay Street which will feature a linear park along the bank of the river before joining up with Main Street and a quality civic and meeting space. A Bremore Regional Amenity Park will feature walkways and worldclass play facilities and will include a restoration of the Martello Tower, Boathouse and public bath area. Within five years, a

Balbriggan to Skerries Greenway will be developed, initially focused on connecting Ardgillan and Bremore Castles, but eventually extending from Gormanstown to Skerries. Speaking about the plan, Professor MacCraith said: “We couldn’t have dreamed of this level of response, with a huge section of the community getting involved to imagine the possibilities in a transformed Balbriggan. "We now have a strong set of priorities which will transform the town, realising its full potential. “Balbriggan as a community has come together with the group of stakeholders, led by Fingal County Council, to engage in a collaborative and unified way to prioritise the ideas which will best address the socio economic challenges of the town. “When asked to name the thing that people most valued about Balbriggan, the five most popular words used were beach,

of leisure experiences around the harbour, river, coastline and local castles as the highest priority in developing the town economically. In order to create a strong and inclusive community in Balbriggan, social spaces for young people to congregate, increased safety and policing, festivals and

events to promote integration and more sports facilities were seen as the four most important factors. The process has created thriving Our Balbriggan social media channels, a new hub site balbriggan. ie and people are now posting about their town using the hashtag #ourbalbriggan.

Youth to be educated on tackling racism THE need to educate young people about racism is greater than ever before because of the growth of far-right movements across Europe. That’s according to the anti-racism charity, Show Racism the Red Card, which has launched an education pack for schools, youth groups and sports clubs across Ireland. Speaking at the launch in the Mansion House, Martina Quinn, chairperson of Show

Racism the Red Card, said: “Across Europe and the world, we have seen a growth in far-right movements in recent years. “This has been accompanied by growing anti-migrant sentiments and increasing incidents of racism and xenophobia. “Here in Ireland, where we pride ourselves on our tolerance and our traditional ‘Irish welcome’, we are starting to see some far-right forces creeping in. 

“Some people in public life are using discriminatory statements about migrants and ethnic minorities to scaremonger and court popularity. And racist incidents still occur on the streets of our cities, towns and villages all too often.  “Against this backdrop, it is more important than ever before that we educate young people about racism and the steps they can take to challenge it.” The new education pack contains online resources

Department of Justice and Equality, as well as the Irish National Teachers’ Organisation, the Association of Secondary Teachers in Ireland, the Teachers’ Union of Ireland and the Football Association of Ireland. It’s available to download, free of charge, from www.

theredcard.ie. Lord Mayor of Dublin Nial Ring launched the education pack. “Since it was established in 2007, Show Racism the Red Card has done excellent work in educating young people and adults about racism and how it can be

challenged,” he said. “ The new education resources will build on all the work done with schools and youth groups over the past decade. I know they will be put to excellent use in classrooms throughout the country in the years to come.”

Phoenix Park plan controversy NORTHSIDE residents have rejected the Office of Public Works’ strategic review of Phoenix Park, claiming it lacks content and detail. The Navan Road

Community Council, which acts as an umbrella organisation for local residents’ associations, clubs and other groups, fear the comprehensive review will result in

expensive retail units and an abundance of car parking spaces in Europe’s largest enclosed public park. The Office of Public Works (OPW) had

extended the deadline for public consultation on the Phoenix Park Visitor Strategic Review until May 29. It wants to review future tourism potential for

areas: a welcome quarter; an activity quarter; a biodiversity quarter; and a commemorative quarter, each offering different visitor experiences. Chesterfield Avenue will act as a central dividing line made up of pedestrian, cycling, horse carriage and shuttle bus lanes with stops at intervals. It’s envisioned that commuters driving through the park may be persuaded to leave their cars near the gates and take public transport to reach nearby Heuston Station with bus, train, Luas and bicycle travel opportunities.

centre at Ashtown Demesne, with some of the space currently used for temporary parking during festivals like Bloom made into a permanent car park. A ‘great interior hall’ in the visitor centre is also conceived to shelter various proposed activities that would animate the various surrounding garden spaces. The review recommends turning the current exhibition and café space into a children’s education centre with its own landscaped spaces. The Magazine Fort would be the main attraction of the commemorative quarter and a bridge linking the park to its former hinterland south of the Liffey could connect it to the Memorial Gardens. Last November, the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) and the Office of Public Works (OPW) launched an architectural design competition to build the commemorative bridge. The Navan Road Community Council (NRCC) has rejected the Strategic Review document in its extensive submission to the public consultation. It describes the review document as a “very expensive, slick, 199 page coffee table book’ that’s low on content and detail. “It obviously has one aim only, which is to put large, expensive, soulless retail units into the Phoenix Park at the Ashtown Visitor’s Centre, the Magazine Fort and Knockmaroon/Furry Glen requiring an abundance of car parking spaces,” the submission states. “Knowing what we do of corporate greed this will only be the beginning of the total destruction of the Phoenix Park. Once areas of the park vanish under concrete they can never be returned.” However, the OPW believe that the review’s 29 recommendations could increase the Phoenix Park’s contribution to Ireland’s tourism economy while ensuring its unique character is conserved and protected for the enjoyment of generations to come.

Men stole hundreds of euro from Trócaire boxes Brion Hoban TWO men who broke into a primary school and stole hundreds of euro from Trócaire boxes have been remanded in custody. Martin Lumsden (35) of The Square, Larchhill, Santry, and John Finn (32), of Cromcastle Close, Kilmore, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to trespass and theft at Gaelscoil Cholmcille, Oscar Traynor Road, on April 18, 2018. Lumsden also pleaded guilty to robbery and possession of a firearm at Mace, All Saints Park, Raheny, on May 7, 2018. Judge Melanie Greally remarked that Lumsden's life has been “a never ending cycle of offending and addiction and homelessness”. She said his “life story so far has

been very bleak” but that people in his position have gone on to do great things. She remanded him in custody on condition that he be transferred directly to Coolmine Therapeutic Community and that he remain in residence there until the completion of a treatment programme. Judge Greally said she proposed to sentence Finn to two years’ imprisonment with the final 12 months suspended, but she wanted confirmation that he is drug free before finalising the sentence. She ordered urine analysis and remanded him in custody to June 6 next. She said the burglary was aggravated by it taking place at a school, by charity money being stolen and by the damage done in commission of the offence. She said the

mitigating factors were Finn's guilty plea, his being under threat at the time and his using his time in custody well. At a previous hearing, Garda Finbarr Fleming told Siobhán Ní Chúlacháin BL, prosecuting, that he was observing traffic outside Gaelscoil Cholmcille in the early hours of the morning when he saw two men throw a heavy bag over the school's railings before climbing over themselves. Lumsden and Finn were arrested and a large amount of coins were discovered in the bag. Gda Fleming went into the school with the principal, discovering that a side window had been smashed and the principal's office had been rummaged through. Trócaire boxes were found ripped open and

almost entirely empty of coins. The total amount stolen was €880.78, all of which was recovered. Garda Andrew Fox told Ms Ní Chúlacháin that Lumsden was on bail for stealing from the charity boxes when he entered a Mace shop at All Saints Park with a gun on his waist. Lumsden stole approximately €500 from two tills in the shop, none of which has been recovered. The firearm has also not been recovered. Lumsden has 110 previous convictions, including for offences of hijacking, false imprisonment, robbery and burglary. He has a previous conviction for stealing from the same Mace Shop at All Saints Park while armed with a knife.

Finn has 17 previous convictions, including for offences of burglary, theft, criminal damage and misuse of drugs. Cathal McGreal BL, defending Lumsden, said his client had

been diagnosed with 'institutional neurosis' due to his long history of imprisonment and submitted that he was someone who could not cope outside of prison. John Moher BL,

defending Finn, said his client was under threat from another party at the time of the burglary. Gda Fleming said he was aware that Finn had been stabbed a week or two prior to the offence.

Film Review 

Booksmart is a pretty clever teen comedy THERE are a million movies featuring American teens struggling through school life. Most of them are formulaic and forgettable, but this year we have been treated to a couple of standouts. First we had the flawless ‘Eighth Grade’, about a shy 13-year-old called Kayla who just doesn’t fit in. And now we have the almost equally impressive but slightly aged up, ‘Booksmart’. This latest educational based feature tells the story of two friends, Amy and Molly, who have spent their entire high school existence with their heads

buried in books, hoping to gain entrance to the best universities in the country. When on the last day of school they realise that their ‘deadbeat’ classmates not only partied hard, but are also getting into the same top colleges, the two buddies are faced with only one choice. Their last night in school

must make up for the years of not having fun, so they head out on the town with the challenge of catching up for lost time and living it up to the max. A super idea for a story. The film is directed by Olivia Wilde who you may know for her acting talents (‘Drinking Buddies’, ‘Rush’) and her connections with Ireland (a former student of the Gaiety School of Acting). As a first time director, Wilde impresses with a keen eye and a steady hand, appearing to have found a new and no doubt successful career in this area. The outrageously bold script is penned by an all

female writing team and the two leads (Beanie Feldstein and Kaitlyn Dever) deliver the lines with conviction, ease and charm. It’s hard to say this film is as good as ‘Eighth Grade’; it’s almost there, but lacks that little bit of heart to push it over the line. However, it is older and therefore edgier, with more laugh out loud moments to enjoy. If you spent your school life stuck in a library and/ or are still there, put down the books and head out to see ‘Booksmart’. We give it a review score of four stars. Paul O’Rourke

O’Connell is remembered at Glasnevin Cemetery event TRIBUTES were paid to Daniel O’Connell earlier this month at the ninth annual commemorative wreath laying ceremony held at Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum. The event to mark the 172nd anniversary of O’Connell’s death was attended by Lord Lieutenant of Belfast, Sir Jeffrey Donaldson MP, Dublin Lord Mayor, Nial Ring, Minister for Finance, Paschal Donohoe and other dignitaries. “It’s an honour to be here today to commemorate the colossal figure in Irish history that is Daniel O’Connell,” said Minister Donohoe. “It’s hugely important that we continue to remember his outstanding contribution to the people of this country. He was an incredibly influential figure, and a man of integrity who had the ability to overturn a constitution by constitutional means. “Verbally ferocious, but a pacifist by all other means, his significance in Irish history is insurmountable and his peaceful methods for

change remain highly relevant today.” Chairman of the Glasnevin Trust, John Green (pictured left) said O’Connell had left an incredible legacy. “It’s wonderful to host this commemorative ceremony in his honour here at Glasnevin Cemetery,” he added. “O’Connell was not only a peaceful force for change here in this country, but also a catalyst for peaceful revolution overseas. He will never be forgotten and we must continue to learn and be inspired by his nonviolent but tenacious leadership.” The O’Connell commemoration is one of the many remembrance events that are celebrated at Glasnevin Cemetery and Museum each year. With thousands of Irish war heroes and political leaders buried there, it is at the heart of many landmark remembrance ceremonies taking place in Ireland.

Darndale hosts Celtic Legends A local community activist has congratulated everyone who was involved in a very special event that saw some football legends arrive in the area. A team comprising former Celtic stars travelled to Darndale to play a football match,

much to the delight of locals. The Celtic Legends team included John Hartson, Jackie McNamara, Alan Stubbs, Tom Boyd, Joe Millar, Brian McClair, Simon Donnelly, Tommy Johnston, Bobby Petta, Mark Burchill and Stiliyan Petrov.

Thomas Daly, one of the main organisers, leads the Celtic team through the crowd.

Madeleine Ebbs, who works for Dublin City Council’s community section, said: “Without a doubt, all the efforts paid off. We estimate that we had approximately 4,000 people in attendance and the atmosphere was absolutely brilliant.” Dublin City Council, Darndale FC, Sphere 17, Elsa Security and the gardaí went all out on the day, bringing in the ‘Equine and Canine’ units, not to mention the Lord Mayor Niall Ring, who played on the day for Celtic, and 50 dedicated volunteers from the locality. “The feedback we are receiving is tremendous,” she added. “Even our visitors, the Celtic

Members of the Celtic Legends team line up before the match.

Teaching children how to be dog smart A DOG can be a child’s best friend and most loyal companion as they grow up, so it’s a relationship to be cherished and respected. We want to ensure that this bond is kept sacred and so we have launched our awareness week, ‘Be Dog Wise’, and are inviting all adults to attend or book one of our workshops. Did you know that Dogs Trust have a dedicated Education and Community team who run two successful programmes ‘Be Dog Smart’ and ‘Be Dog Confident’? These programmes are designed to help both adults and children learn how to safely interact with a dog at home and while out and about. ’Be Dog Smart’ workshops aim to help advise parents and guardians about ways in which they can teach their child(ren) how to act appropriately around a dog to ensure all parties are kept safe and happy. There are workshops available for new/ expectant parents, and parents/guardians of a variety of different age groups, see below for details. Workshops also encourage better socialisation for dogs

to increase their confidence in new environments and situations, leading to a happier more well rounded dog. Our Be Dog Smart workshops are also suitable for dog owners who may have children visiting their home. BE DOG SMART TOP TIPS: • Always supervise play time between children and dogs • Learn the 21+ warning signs a dog may show when they are feeling uncomfortable • Expose your dog to a variety of environments and situations to help build their confidence, for example, gentle exposure to loud noises, unfamiliar places and allow them to safely meet other dogs and new people.

Exam stress is taking its toll IRELAND’S exam system is taking a punishing toll on young people with a majority admitting having suffered from either anxiety, weight gain, weight loss, insomnia and depression during the Leaving Cert cycle, a new survey shows. An overwhelming 75 percent of second-level students reported feeling a lot or an extreme amount of stress during the two-year Leaving Cycle with 57 percent of Sixth Year students saying they developed a mental or physical health issue as a result of exam pressure. For most students, anxiety is the chief issue (71 percent) while weight gain (47 percent); insomnia (35 percent); depression (28 percent) and weight loss (15

by more than 3,500 second-level students from across Ireland. The survey also found that Dublin universities are in danger of being deprived of rural students, with the cost of living increasingly squeezing out potential college students from

is caused by the sheer number of exams, with students wanting more continuous assessment (37 percent), smaller subject choice (31 percent) and exams spread further apart (20 percent) to reduce the pressure they feel. A huge 69 percent of students believe that the Leaving Certificate points system will not help them to follow their desired study or career path. When asked if the Leaving Cert fairly assessed their intelligence, 80 percent of students said ‘no’. educational life in the Second-level science capital. teacher and Studyclix.

timetable. But he also believes students need to spend less time on devices such as smartphones ‘ he says it’s contributing to the stress. ‘I was shocked to see that more than half of students said they had developed a mental or physical condition in Sixth Year,’ he added. ‘We started Studyclix with the aim of simply offering study material, but over the years we have seen a need to offer more and more advice and support for students on how to cope with what for many will be the most stressful year of their lives. ‘We recently launched a Studyclix podcast which deals with issues like exam anxiety and how to prepare physically and mentally for the exams.

‘I think there are several practical steps we can take that would ease the pressure on students. Firstly, I think the exam timetable could be modified to spread out the more popular subject's exams over a longer period. ‘For example, the Irish paper falls on the same day as Maths and Biology meaning that the majority of students will spend up to five hours per day doing exams. ‘I also think a simple change would be to lower the number of subjects counted for CAO points calculations from six to five meaning that students would be able to take one less subject leaving more space in the timetable for the likes of physical education, career guidance and health and

Dublin school awarded EU prize A DUBLIN school has been presented with an award for its efforts in reducing harmful chemicals used in everyday items like cleaning products, polish and air fresheners. St Fintan’s in Sutton was one of just six projects from around Europe that was rewarded for its project for European Week for Waste Reduction (EWWR). The local school involved 180 students and their families in an effort to curtail the harmful chemicals used in everyday items. Following a campaign to collect empty containers from households in September and the printing of labels for the different products in October, in November the school organised workshops during which parents and students worked together to make more sustainable cleaning products. Since the workshops took place in the school corridors, all 600 students at the school had the opportunity to witness the activity and learn about the hazardous chemicals in everyday cleaning products." The annual EWWR prize is aimed at recognising and incentivising waste reduction initiatives from

all actors of society. The EWWR takes place every year in November with thousands of awarenessraising and clean-up activities taking place all over Europe. The 10th edition of the EWWR awards show the pivotal role local communities play in reducing waste. The next EWWR will take place 16 to 24 November 2019. In his opening remarks at the presentation of prizes, the member of the

European Committee of the Regions (CoR), AndrÇ van de Nadort (NL/PES), Mayor of the municipality of Weststellingwerf and Jury Member of this year's edition, said: As Jury Member, I am impressed to see how many different initiatives are being developed across Europe and the great diversity of groups, institutions and collectivities that are actively engaged in waste prevention and reduction.

sleeker than the Ceed five-door hatchback and Sportwagaon. This car was designed, developed, engineered and built in Europe and it really is a surprisingly long motor. Naturally the boot is huge and there are different compartments in the boot to store various items. And the good news is that underneath also those storage areas is a proper spare wheel. Only available in petrol, a 1.4-litre with 140 brake horse power. With GT-Line specifications, there are lots of extras like: Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), forward Collision Avoidance Assist (FCA) and Driver Attention Warning (DAW). Inside the seats are very comfortable and my good wife who is the best judge of car seats in our house, was very happy with the comfortable front passenger seat. I had no complaints either from the rear seat passengers, but I had to remind them to put on

their seats belts as we got a ‘beeping sound’ if they didn’t buckle up. The ProCeed is set low, which makes it very easy to load shopping and other items into that

spacious boot. I liked it and so did all the family, but I did think that it might have been a little bit thirsty. My test model came in infra red colour and

it certainly ‘stood out from the crowd’ in the supermarket car park. The other colours available are Blue Flame and Deluxe White. Prices start at €28,945.

Only available in petrol, a six speed manual. Road tax is €280. And if you need reassurance it’s good to know that Kia is of course the home of the seven-year warranty.

GLE hits the streets THE path being followed by Mercedes-Benz by injecting replacement models with a new sense of youthfulness is most evident in the latest GLE sports utility vehicle just launched. While still the practical workhorse owners expect their SUVs to be, in its latest form the GLE has taken on what sales manager, Ciaran Allen calls a “more progressive look designed to attract an altogether wider segment of SUV owners”. Though fitted with the power needed to handle the rough and tumble (with a towing capacity of 3,500kg), the GLE now has a noticeably morerounded, more-elegant presence, designers having dialled down its predecessor’s bold muscular lines. With its younger-looking, readyto-rock appearance – with 80mm longer wheelbase, short overhangs and flushfitted wheels – the feeling in Mercedes-Benz circles is that it will appeal to male and female owners in more

As with every new Mercedes-Benz, high-tech features are to the fore. equal numbers. Helping this will be its fuel-efficient best-in-segment 0.29 Cd value (down from 0.32). Quiet and smooth in terms of its driving and handling characteristics – with latest suspension and comfort control features – the new GLE is even more responsive, delivering greater enjoyment and driving comfort in normal road conditions and an even more competent off road performance. Its wheelbase, almost 3-metres long, it is more

spacious with room for up to seven occupants – rear seat passengers enjoying well over one metre legroom. A second row of seats has the option of being electrically adjustable while a third seat row is available as an option. This extra spaciousness is reflected in its longer, wider dimensions with increased front and rear headroom, better elbow and shoulder room and better load capacity. For music lovers, there is the enjoyment of

surround sound. Four diesel models make up the new range all with 4MATIC transmission – a GLE 300d, GLE 350d, GLE 400d and GLE 450d. Ranked the first SUV in its class to meet Euro 6d emissions standards not coming into force until January next, it is fitted with an extended exhaust gas after-treatment system and additional under-body SCR catalytic converter technology that reduce nitrogen oxide emissions down to 20milligrams per

kilometre average. Model-by-model, the range breaks down into one 4-cylinder and three 6-cylinder units in the 1950cc to 2999cc power range with a 0-100kms acceleration spread from 5.7 seconds to 7.2 seconds with fuel consumption and CO2 emissions stats ranging from of 6.4-6.1-litres per 100kms and 169-161g/km (in the case of the 300d) to 9.4-8.3-litres per 100km and 214-190 g/km (in the case of the top-powered 450d). Promised later is a plug-in Hybrid electric version with a rival-beating 100kms full electric capability. Seeing this latest introduction as ‘yet another step’ by MercedesBenz in the quest to broaden its ownership base, both by gender and by age, their sales manager in Ireland, Ciaran Allen said the GLE is pitched to be one of the most ‘valueattractive’ models in its segment and forerunner in a parade of new 2019 model introductions.

JESSON LANDSCAPING SERVICES Aspen White Dining Table with Pendle Chairs. “Round tables are great for tight spaces, and their rounded edges reduce the risk of accidents for a more family-friendly home. “Pedestal tables are also excellent spacesavers; the central base frees up more legroom while also maximising floor space. “When it comes to style, the possibilities are truly endless. A rustic table in walnut or grey wood lends a comforting presence and can be paired with practical wooden chairs, or styled along a chic, bistro-feel with comfy fabric seats. “Or, for a modern take – glass tables are perfect for that extra oomph. These tables score big on style with different silhouettes and materials, from polished steel legs to statement wooden pedestals.” 2. OPT FOR AN EXTENDING TABLE Small dining spaces will benefit from an extending table – the winning formula is its ability to lengthen and transform a space for parties and gatherings. “Extending tables are popular picks for most homes, but they’re extremely crucial in smaller homes and apartments,” Rebecca says. “These centrepieces are ideal for big gatherings, and can be kept to their original, compact shape for everyday use. “There’s a variety of extending styles to choose from, but it’s important to invest in one that works best in tight spaces. “Butterfly leaf tables

Furthermore, the reduction in unemployment since 2012 is completely the reverse of what happened following the recession in the 1980s and 1990s, when it took six years of sustained growth before the reduction in long-term unemployment even started to kick in.”

Minister Doherty said that while the figures were welcome, “we can’t be complacent”. “Our work with unemployed people will continue to focus on getting even more people into the workforce and we will need to continue to innovate,” she said. “I am currently looking at options to help longterm unemployed people in the over-50 age bracket for whom conventional

Located 2.5km from the city centre, Glasnevin is a peaceful oasis in bustling urban Dublin. Opened in 1832, the cemetery is of monumental national importance encapsulating the history of Ireland and is the burial place of over 1.6 million people. Passionate and knowledgeable guides take you on a journey through Ireland’s fascinating past, visiting the gravesides of our heroes and heroines, rogues, rebels and revolutionaries. Glasnevin offers a window into Irish history and the tours are filled with enjoyable anecdotes and wry stories that bring it to life. DAILY GUIDED TOURS The General History Tour visits the gravesides of the inspirational figures that shaped the Ireland we know today including Michael Collins, Eamon De Valera, Charles Stewart Parnell, Daniel O’Connell, Grace Gifford, Maud Gonne and Countess Markievicz. This tour runs at 11:30am and 2:30pm daily, with additional tours running during the summer months. The Dead Interesting Tour offers an alternative view of the varied heritage that Ireland’s largest cemetery holds and the history within its walls. Learn of its sculpture, symbolism, architecture, sporting heroes, natural life and the lesser known stories of extraordinary lives and extraordinary events. This tour runs at the weekends and on Bank Holiday Mondays at 1:00pm. Visitors can now visit the O’Connell Tower! The cemetery’s founder, legendary Irish statesman Daniel O’Connell is buried in an ornate crypt beneath the spectacular round tower, the tallest of its kind in Ireland, standing at 180ft. Following a bombing in 1971, the staircase in the tower has been restored,

complete with an exhibition about the legendary figure himself and the fascinating history of the tower. Climb the 198 steps to spectacular views of Dublin, Wicklow and the Irish Sea. BLOOMSDAY AT GLASNEVIN, SUNDAY 16TH JUNE Glasnevin Cemetery Museum has been celebrating Bloomsday since 2010 when the museum first opened to the public. The numbers attending the Bloomsday event have gone from strength to strength over the years and it is now a firm and much anticipated event on the venue’s calendar. Episode 6 - Hades in Ulysses depicts the funeral procession of Paddy Dignam at the Hibernian necropolis – Glasnevin Cemetery. This scene will be a central focal point for a re-enactment performed by the ‘Joycestagers’ at Glasnevin Cemetery this Bloomsday. There will also be a Joycean tour of the cemetery which boasts a wide range of literary connections. For further information, check out Glasnevin’s website! Glasnevin’s mission today remains as it was handed from Daniel O’Connell “to bury people of all religions and none with dignity and respect” and to preserve and honour the heritage of past generations, serve and respect the needs of the present generation and provide a legacy for future generations. Not convinced? Go and see for yourself!

Irish Caricaturist Ray Sherlock has an exhibition showcasing a selection of his humourous and topical renditions of famous faces at The Red Bank 1736 Tavern.

It opens on May 28 and plays until June 8 at Bewley’s Café Theatre. See  www.bewleyscafetheatre
