A PUBLIC information meeting was held in Coolock last Thursday night for residents to voice their concerns about the quality of drinking water in the area. Details supplied to a national newspaper recently through a Freedom of Information (FOI) request show that lead levels some 12 times above the legal limit have been discovered in parts of Coolock.

approximately 40 people, said he wrote to Irish Water twice in one week seeking further details into the matter. Cllr Lyons, who represents the Beaumont-Donaghmede Local Electoral Area (LEA), described the development as a very serious public health issue. He said: “To date, the public still does not know if the lead levels were caused by the presence of lead in the public mains or the private distribution system, and how extensive is the presence

of lead in the water supply: confined to a small area or widespread? “I have requested that Irish Water host a public meeting in Coolock to address these questions, and the many more, residents in the area may have. In a statement to Northside People, Irish Water said that since it was established it has been “working hard” to improve and safeguard the quality and supply of drinking water. Continued on page 14

Concern over cracks in tree sculpture in Northside park CRACKS are starting to form in a sculpture at one of the Northside’s top amenities, according to a candidate for the local elections. The sculpture in a 10-metre tall tree - ‘Peace Tree or 'Tree of life' - is located at the corner of St Anne’s Park, Raheny, at the junction

of Clontarf Road and Watermill Road. Cathal Haughey (FF) said: “A few years ago, Dublin City Council decided this 200-year-old dying Macrocarpa tree should be transformed into something special. “They commissioned Tommy Craggs (sculptor)

to transform the tree into a work of art that has since been enjoyed by visitors, tourists and commuters every day who visit and drive by. “The tree contains sculptures of many of the animals and wildlife of the surrounding St Anne's Park and Bull Island. “However, people have started to notice a crack forming in the middle of the famous tree. Mr Haughey contacted the Parks Department at Dublin City Council to raise this issue. The city council said the cracks are considered natural and inevitable and it would “not be possible to fill the same”. “The cracks will open and close as the tree dries and swells with the changes in the weather,” said the spokesperson. “This is a natural sculpture with a limited life expectancy which we hope to extend for a good number of years with regular treatments

with finishing oils." Mr Haughey described the sculpture as an amazing piece of art and said it has become a landmark for the area. “I know people are proud to have this sculptured tree that attracts visitors from far and wide and is seen by commuters every day,” he said. “When I noticed the crack start to form I thought it should be raised with the council as in fairness they were the ones who took the initiative to turn the tree into what it is today. “I'm glad the Parks Department have confirmed they will be continuing to work on the tree to restore it for as long as possible. Hopefully we can enjoy this piece of art for years to come.” Mr Haughey, a grandson of former Taoiseach Charlie Haughey, will be contesting the Local Elections in the Clontarf Local Electoral Area.

Animal magic at St Anne’s Park ONE of the Northside’s top amenities has added a new attraction that will be enjoyed by hundreds of visitors this summer. Lord Mayor of Dublin Nial Ring officially opened the city’s first urban farm at St Anne’s Park, Raheny. The 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 non-profit basis. Volunteers manage and care for the animals, which

include two pigs, chickens, three goats, a guinea pig and ‘Moses’ the Shetland 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. The Lord Mayor said the farm will be an incredible amenity for the local community and Dublin

city. “The farm will give children and adults from the city an opportunity to learn about raising animals, growing food and seeing other farm based activities in an urban setting,” he said. “The farm adds yet another brilliant amenity to the wonderful recreational facilities that already exist in St Anne’s Park and we should all congratulate Dublin City Council and the

volunteers who gave such commitment to ensuring the delivery of this great project.” Marion Kelly, from St Anne’s City Farm, said: “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

We need to respect the art of court reporting TONY McCULLAGH Editor Dublin People Group t.mccullagh@dublinpeople.com

BACK in the 1980s, when I was a wannabe reporter, I did a week’s work experience in the Four Courts with the Irish Press. Each day, I would shadow the paper’s court reporter, Paul Muldowney, watching him take copious notes in shorthand as we sat together in the press gallery. I found it next to impossible to follow what was going on, as

legal eagles took to their feet and spewed out what was incoherent gobbledygook to my young ears. When the morning’s proceedings had finished, we’d go back to a small office in the vast belly of the Four Courts where the veteran reporter would bang out his story on a typewriter before phoning it in to a copytaker in his newspaper. When I read his report, I was struck by the level of skill required to work as a court reporter. How was it possible for him to write such an accessible and concise account of the proceedings we had just sat through? How had he heard things that I hadn’t? That week, I learned that an understanding of law and the mechanisms of a court case

The Criminal Courts of Justice in Dublin

was required for the job. But even more important was the need for accuracy, balance and fairness. As a journalist, there is nothing more daunting than getting it wrong when covering a court case. An error in a court report has the potential to land a media organisation in serious trouble or could even collapse a trial. Courts are not slow to threaten newspapers with contempt proceedings if it’s believed a case could be jeopardised by inaccurate coverage. To this day, I still have huge admiration for court reporters and their ability to break down often complex cases into compelling,

readable articles. RTÉ reporters such as Vivienne Traynor and Orla O’Donnell are masters of their craft when covering court cases for television and radio. Newstalk’s court correspondent, Frank Greaney, is also a standout broadcaster and his coverage of both the Belfast rape trial and recent Tipperary murder case was exceptional. In my view, he is one of Ireland’s most accomplished journalists and a rising media star to watch. Given the amount of professional skill and care involved in writing a court report, it is highly concerning that many stories are now debased

when they appear on social media. In recent years, I have been genuinely shocked at the legally dubious (to put it mildly) and vulgar nature of some of the comments posted under court reports that appear on my Facebook newsfeed. It’s for this reason that we don’t post court reports on Dublin People’s social media platforms. Until such a time that robust legislation or proper regulation is in place to deal with the problem of unregulated comments on social media, there is a compelling argument to be made for restricting the publication of court reports to print or broadcast formats.

Man jailed following attack Declan Brennan A man who broke another man's arm using a hammer has been jailed for two years. Rasvan Stefanescu (33)

next day and told him “you're lucky there is CCTV here because I would have killed you”. He followed the victim and told him he would wait for him and made further threats. When

Court heard the victim was out of work for two months and lost a substantial amount of income but had made a full recovery from his injuries. Stefanescu pleaded guilty to assault causing harm at Tyrellstown Castle in Blanchardstown on July 14, 2014.

Stefanescu's lawyers told Judge Melanie Greally that the attack was an out of character and an isolated incident and that Stefanescu sincerely regretted his actions. Judge Greally suspended the last 18 months of a three and a half year prison

sentence. She ordered that a sum of €3,100 offered by Stefanescu in compensation be paid over to the victim. The judge noted that Stefanescu has no other convictions for violent offending, is now in stable employment and has taken a responsible attitude to fatherhood.

investment in the development of primary care infrastructure across the country, with further centres either being developed or in planning stages. “This is guided by a recognition that the best health outcomes can be achieved by reorienting our health services towards primary and community care settings where people’s needs can, for the most part, be met locally, with high quality acute and emergency care provided in the appropriate acute hospital settings,” he added.

MS fundraising events IRELAND'S annual opportunity to help ‘Kiss Goodbye to MS’ will run throughout the month of May with local and national events and activities. The campaign, run by Multiple Sclerosis Ireland, calls on individuals, workplaces and groups to Wear, Dare and Share to fund research and provide services for the more than 9,000 people in

Ireland with MS. You can wear red or hold a ‘red day’ at work; dare to get sponsored for an MS Ireland skydive or take part in a 9,000 steps for MS event; and share with friends and family to spread the word. The campaign takes place in 15 countries who collectively aim to raise more than €1.2 million to fund research into the cause and cure of Multiple Sclerosis.

In Ireland, supporters can text KISS to 50300 to donate €4 and nominate others to take part. Multiple Sclerosis - meaning ‘many scars’is the most common debilitating neurological condition affecting young adults in this country. It affects the motor, sensory and cognitive functioning of the body and is usually diagnosed between 20 and 40 years

of age. The impact of MS on individuals, their families and the community can undermine the resilience that is needed for individuals to remain purposeful and in control of their lives. Three times more women than men are diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. There is no cause or cure for the condition.

Casino work in Malahide is nearing completion THE repair and conservation of a well-known Northside building is nearing completion. Work on the Malahide Casino began in April 2018 and has continued uninterrupted since. The large thatch roof of the cottage orne was re-coated over the winter period with the help of a temporary structure that over sailed and wrapped the building allowing the thatcher to work underneath whatever the weather. The beautifully restored thatched roof is now

visible to the public again and is a distinctive feature at the entrance to Malahide village. Internally, repairs and upgrading of services are also nearing completion as well as the construction of a new section of building to house the Fry Model Railway, owned by Fingal County Council. Mayor of Fingal Cllr Anthony Lavin has unveiled a plaque to celebrate the conclusion of the conservation and restoration of the muchloved Casino building. The installation of the

Cyril Fry Model Railway to its new permanent home in the casino is underway as is the conservation of the model train collection. It is expected that the Casino Model Railway Museum will be open to the public in early autumn. Fingal County Architect Fionnuala May said: “The completion of this project will add to the portfolio of heritage properties that are owned by Fingal and will allow public access to this highly individual building. The Casino is the only cottage orne of

Daniel McNamara, Francis Haughey, Mayor of Fingal Cllr Anthony Lavin, Peter Childs and Fionnuala May, County Architect, at the event. this type in Fingal and is an important part of the county’s architectural heritage. “The project is a good example of adaptation and reuse of an old building for a modern use whilst retaining its

essential character.” Mayor Lavin said he is delighted to see the refurbishment of the Casino. “Over the years the people of Malahide have watched anxiously as it fell into disrepair and

it is thanks to Michael Gaffney for his generous donation and Fingal County Council that we were able to conserve this unique and magnificent landmark,” he said. “I am very much looking forward to the

commissioning of the model railway museum in early autumn and I have no doubt it will be of benefit to the whole of Malahide village as it provides a natural flow for visitors from Malahide Castle and Demesne.”

Election film launched A FILM has been launched ahead of the European elections to encourage people to vote. In Ireland, the elections will take place on May 24. ‘Choose Your Future’ was released last month and has already reached over 50 million Europeans.

The European’s Parliament’s short film is a nudge to people to take part in the upcoming elections and to think about the future generations that will ultimately have to live with the consequences of this vote. Directed by

award-winning Frédéric Planchon, it documents the intense, beautiful and fragile moments when newborn children come into this world. The film, which is narrated by a young girl, aims to appeal to the voters’ sense of responsibility.

Film Review 

Long Shot is in with a good chance SETH Rogen and Charlize Theron together romantically just can’t work. One is stunningly beautiful (Rogen) and the other is overweight, unsightly and scruffy (Theron). Or did we just mix up those descriptions? This idea is at the heart of the unlikely duo’s new movie, 'Long Shot', which tells the story of outspoken journalist Fred Flarsky who bumps into his old babysitter, Charlotte Field, now a successful politician. With Charlotte making a run for the presidency, she needs a new speechwriter and turns to Fred for help. But one question remains, will their friendship from the past eventually turn into something deeper? It’s unusual with a comedy to concentrate on the plot, but in this case it’s an interesting one, and the film doesn’t shy away from examining the silliness of its own premise, that two seemingly unmatched people could fall in love. But then again why couldn’t Vogue Williams end up with Marty Morrissey? Isn’t she beautiful too? Or why wouldn’t a Tubridy/Darcy relationship work (we can’t figure out who the ugly one is either). Aside from this deep philosophical question of attraction, the main thing you need to know about this movie is that it’s hilarious, with more laugh out loud moments than you would expect. For this reason, and the bravery of the story, we award it a review score of 4 delightful stars.    A very different offering out this week is 'High Life', starring Robert Pattinson as death row inmate Monte, and Juliette Binoche as the doctor in charge of an intergalactic experiment where criminals are sent into orbit. A nice idea that ends up floating around in nothingness, a kind of hypnotic, meditative art installation in space, with lots of bodily fluids being swapped in a not so interesting way.

This is the kind of movie that intellectuals love and larger audiences don’t, the cinematic equivalent of staring at a giant blue square in a museum and being afraid to say it’s crap. Now that we’ve lowered your expectations so much, you might just extract some enjoyment from this movie, but don’t count on it. 2 Stars.

The Malahide team that won the Under 18 Metropolitan Cup Final.

Rugby club’s double MALAHIDE Rugby Club completed a brilliant double recently thanks to the outstanding success of two of their teams. The seniors recorded victory in their play-off against Bruff Rugby Football Club to gain promotion to AIL Division 2B while the Under 18s defeated DSLP 26-17 in the Under 18 Metro Cup Final, at Terenure Rugby Club. The Under 18 final was a tough competitive match

but played in a good sporting spirit. Malahide were out of the traps early with a well worked try set up by their pack which was well marshalled by team captain Timmy O’Connor, and scored by centre Darragh Byrne and converted by Harry Nolan. Malahide continued to dominate in the first quarter with effective box kicking by scrum half Nolan.

It resulted in a great team score following a series of 10 passes by forwards and backs, finished off by flying winger Jack Foley. Malahide led narrowly at half time, 12-7. In the second half Malahide took control with their pack making strong surges led by their strong back row of Joey Boland, Cormac Buckley and Shane O’Casey. In the last 10 minutes DLSP produced a

strong late rally scoring a converted try and a penalty. Malahide defended well, though, with their full back Alex Dawson and outhalf Conor Kennedy pulling off some notable tackles, and Jake Kelly, Joey Lee and team captain Timmy O’Connor working hard in the tight. It proved to be a highly rewarding weekend for Malahide Rugby Club’s hard working coach Moro Morrin.

New park opens on former dump A NEW park has opened in north county Dublin on a site that was once a former dump. Fingal County Council formally opened Rogerstown Park, which is located on the site of the former Balleally Landfill between Lusk and Rush. Mayor of Fingal Cllr Anthony Lavin performed the opening ceremony and those in attendance got the opportunity to visit the upper section of the new park which has spectacular views of the North Dublin coastline. Rogerstown Park is being opened on a staged basis with the upper section being open to the public on Saturdays only

from 9.30am to 5pm for the remainder of 2019. Subsequent sections will open from 2020 onwards as works progress to completion. Plans to address accessibility from Rush and Lusk will also be addressed and Rogerstown Park will be included in an overall Estuary Plan with possible links across the Estuary to Donabate being considered. Speaking at the ceremony, Mayor Lavin said: “Fingal is a county that likes to be a leader of innovation and environmental responsibility and we are delighted to be one of the first counties to officially

open one of their former landfills as a public park.” The mayor said the project is the culmination of a 10-year programme of restoration of this former landfill site which has been in operation, in one form or another, since the late 1960s. “Rogerstown Park has now shown the way in what can be achieved with older landfill sites by handing them back to the local communities to be enjoyed as amenities for the beneficial use of their local residents,” he added. Cllr Brian Dennehy, Chair of the Balleally Landfill Liaison Committee, said: “Rogerstown Park

PHOTO: SON PHOTO will provide access to stunning views, allow families, walkers and joggers to come and relax and provide the local area with an asset which they can be proud of. “Local people can take a high degree of confidence that the landfill is, and

has been, managed well and the Balleally Landfill Liaison Committee has worked hard to ensure that this site has been finished to the highest possible standard. “The work of the Balleally Landfill Liaison Committee over the past number of years has

been a crucial part of the success story that is Rogerstown Park today.” David Devine, who is overseeing the transformation of the former landfill into a public park in his capacity as Landfill Manager at Balleally, said: “I take great pleasure in being

able to hand something back to the local communities who have endured the landfill over the past years. “It was always my belief that those views had to be made accessible to the local community and wider public as they are simply stunning.”

And now that we’re officially into Summer 2019, let’s hope we get the luck we got last year when we almost became sick of the sunshine (okay, only joking about the last bit!) Given its location along the Fingal coastline, Portmarnock is understandably a huge draw especially in the summer months when visitors from all over Dublin flock to its famous Velvet Strand beach. The beach is very popular for swimming, sunbathing and horse riding and while partaking in these leisurely pursuits, you get a lovely view of the Dublin Mountains and Howth Harbour, and also have a clear view of Lambay Island and Ireland's Eye. If it’s good quality exercise you’re after, why not take the path along the beach that brings you into neighbouring Malahide?

LOCATION, location, location! Over the years, this is a phrase that has tripped off the tongues of house buyers, estate agents and TV presenters of property shows among others. It is a phrase 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 the beautiful coastal suburb of Portmarnock. Undoubtedly one of the jewels in North Dublin’s crown, Portmarnock possesses natural amenities that are the envy of many and it has a rich history to match.  Portmarnock is stunning all year round. However, when we get the type of weather like that which we basked in over Easter, the popular village really comes into its own.

Supporting local businesses EVERYONE is back working or so it seems, job announcements are being made on an almost daily basis, house prices, it appears, are back up to Celtic Tiger levels, consumer confidence is slowly returning and hotels can hardly keep up with the demand of the growing number of tourists arriving on our shores. While these are undoubtedly encouraging signs this is no time to get complacent. 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 during the downturn to even contemplate going down that road again.  Amid all the positivity, though, the fact is that local businesses still need support, and with the huge uncerainty surrounding that elephant that won’t leave the room (Brexit!), this is even more pertinent. During the recession there was an onus on shoppers

An idyllic gem by the sea Continued from page 19

Everyone benefits when local businesses receive support. FILE PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA to back local traders and play their part in keeping employment levels up in their communties, and this is still important today. Portmarnock 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 good range of shops, local services, schools, sports clubs and recreational outlets. From humble beginnings, Portmarnock

has grown along with the population explosion and this growth has been more than matched by local businesses that have stepped up to the mark to cater for new communities. Local businesses are always

willing to welcome you with a friendly smile, as well as that all important quality service. In a lot of cases, those serving us from behind the counters are our neighbours, which is another incentive to shop

local if at all possible. Portmarnock has a proud history and great potential and there’s no better time to support the local businesses on our doorstep that have been there for us in good times and bad!

Day in day out, people use this walk for their exercise, inhaling the sea air and taking in the wonderful scenery that’s all around them. In Portmarnock there are some well-known landmarks including the Martello Tower and The Kiosk. The latter has proved to be a great shop over the years, providing sweets, ice-cream and people’s needs for the beach. The Martello Tower is situated on the Coast Road and many people enjoy a stroll alongside it on a fine spring or summer’s day while taking in views of the Irish Sea. Another significant landmark is the Southern Cross monument which is located on the beach. Nearly 90 years ago Portmarnock made world history as the historic flight of the Southern Cross plane used the three miles of smooth sand on the beach as a runway. Thousands turned up to the beach that morning in June 1930 where they gathered to witness and cheer on Charles Kingsford Smith and his crew on their historic, groundbreaking flight, the very first successful flight from Europe to America. Every summer the Southern Cross Festival is held annually in the village to mark that major event. While Portmarnock’s amenities are abundant, access to them is vital. Portmarnock is easily accessible with regular trains, including the DART, making stops in the village. Buses are also available from Dublin city centre to bring visitors to the area.

Portmarnock golfer Conor prepares for Amateur Open PORTMARNOCK international Conor Purcell will lead the field for the Flogas Irish Amateur Open Championship when the blue riband tournament moves west to County Sligo from May 16-19. Purcell, number 25 in the World Amateur Golf Ranking (as of April 24), has already captured the Australian Amateur crown this year. The 21-year-old North Dubliner enters his home championship as the highest ranked player. Ireland teammate Caolan Rafferty is an absentee due to a clash with third level exams. Former champion Peter O’Keeffe, successful in 2017, is among this year’s title challengers. Speaking ahead of the championships, Purcell, who began the domestic season with a share of second at the West of Ireland, the first event on

the Bridgestone Order of Merit, said: “I think once you play well, things fall into place. I don’t really put an emphasis on a particular tournament or a particular stretch of events. You just need to try keep doing what you’re doing.” Purcell’s strong showing at the West, also staged at County Sligo, bodes well for his next title bid. The Flogas Irish Amateur Open was last played over the links at Rosses Point in 1950, when the legendary JB Carr prevailed. And with Caolan Rafferty, this year’s West of Ireland winner, unable to contest the national championship, Purcell is in pole position. Rafferty leads the Bridgestone Order of Merit following his early season success but Purcell can leapfrog the current leader by finishing inside the top 13 this time around. The winner of the Irish Amateur will earn 425

season. “I think over the last year or so there has been a much bigger emphasis on playing

at home,” said Purcell, buoyed by Bridgestone’s backing for the Order of Merit.

“Bridgestone have done a great job in supporting it. You need a sponsor like that to back it.”

groups

thrive

THERE are a number of ingredients that help to make an area prosper. These include a good community spirit, friendly citizens, businesses that go the extra mile, quality services, hard workers and volunteers, active groups for young and old, and people who are proud of where they live. Portmarnock is one of those Northside suburbs that undoubtedly have these in abundance. The area boasts excellent schools including Portmarnock Community School, St Marnock’s National School and St Helen’s Junior and Senior National School.   Sport forms a huge part of community life with a number of clubs and groups providing a vital outlet for children and adults. Big clubs in the area include Naomh Mearnog GAA Club, Portmarnock AFC and Portmarnock Athletic Club. Portmarnock Golf Club is also a major attraction in the area as is the Portmarnock Sports and Leisure Centre (PSLC). Portmarnock Integrated ARCH Club is another major success story in the area. A group of parents and friends of children with special needs founded the club in 1990. The ARCH Club is a purpose-built facility situated to the rear of St Anne's Church in Portmarnock Village. It was built to the highest possible standards with total accessibility for members with physical disabilities. The centre provides members with week long activities including music, dance, drama, aerobics, snooker, bowling, table tennis, swimming and football. For those who like to take to the stage or like going along to quality shows, Portmarnock Musical Society is a highly regarded group that has been catering for locals over many years. Only last week the Society presented its latest musical, Little Shop Of Horrors’, at Malahide Community School. For more details on the group, email Portmarnockmds@ gmail.com

DOGS TRUST CANINE COLUMN

Solace for dog lovers DOGS give us so much and ask for so little in return. They provide unconditional love, companionship, keep us entertained with their shenanigans and accept us for who we are, without judgement. Unfortunately, their life span is relatively short compared to ours. Only dog lovers will understand the special bond a dog brings to your family and how devastating it is when your faithful friend passes away. Dogs Trust want grieving owners to feel welcome and supported during their difficult time, so they have created a special Legacy Garden as a solace for dog lovers to go when they have lost their faithful friend. Within this Legacy Garden, there is a first-of-its-kind remembrance dog sculpture, where engraved memorial dog tags will hang forever. These memorial tags can be purchased and personalised

The Legacy Garden at Dogs Trust. with a dog’s name and a date that holds significance to their owner. Dogs Trust will place the tag on the sculpture and

a commemorative certificate will be sent as a special keepsake to remember the cherished pet in a meaningful

way. In a time of sadness, your dog’s memory can create a brighter future for thousands of dogs who have not yet found their Forever Home. By purchasing a tag in your dog’s honour, the commemorative tags will help more dogs to get all the love and care they need until they find their forever family who will cherish them just as much as you did with your best friend. If you know a dog lover who has experienced a loss, you can help them honour their dog too by purchasing a special tag on their behalf. We will send them a Certificate to let them know you are thinking of them. Here is some advice for anyone who has lost their faithful friend: • Give yourself permission to grieve and be patient with yourself.  It is okay to be upset about the death of your dog.

Four-legged additions to the family should have everything they need when they arrive at their new home. But what does their new family need to provide so that kittens feel comfortable and secure? The experts from Maxi Zoo, Ireland’s largest pet retailer know. Cats like soft and cosy spaces and usually find their own bed, or several different places to sleep. A cat needs one extra bowl if their menu includes both fresh and dry food. To encourage your cat to drink more, you can leave water bowls throughout the house. If your kitten has already been house-trained by their breeder, provide them with what they are used to, such as an enclosed litter box. You also need a scoop to remove waste, as well as litter. Cats need something to sharpen their claws on. You should get a scratching post or, a high scratching board. Kittens need an adjustable collar with an easy open clip. Toys should always be appropriate for your pet’s age. Avoid things that are small enough to be swallowed or objects that your kitten could chew into made of dangerous, small pieces. discount and number of items vary between Call in*The to your localamount Maxi Zoo store and viewcanour Kitty Stocks are limited. range.

When he first arrived at Dogs Trust, he was quite nervous but thanks to his dedicated Canine Carers he has come on leaps and bounds and is ready to find his Forever Family. He is fine meeting dogs while out and about but would prefer to lap up all the love for himself at home and therefore would like to be the only pet in the house. Tiny is a really sweet dog, and given time, love and space he will make the most wonderful pet and companion for life. If you have room in your heart and home for Tiny then contact Dogs Trust on 01 879 1000..

This week’s Beauty Dial Star Buys By Edel Cox of The Beauty Dial (www.thebeautydial.ie)

CASAMODA Cape Town, the second largest metropolis in South Africa situated at Table Bay on the Atlantic, is the city that represents the inspiration and holiday mood for CasaModa this season. The cosmopolitan city’s very lively joie de vivre atmosphere is rousing and hypnotic, with a heady mix of urban and natural colours, aromas and noise that all work together in unison. The colourful and fiery activity in Long Street add such strong contrast to the Atlantic’s cool tones, but together have inspired CasaModa to create leading lifestyle looks for Summer with masculine patterns, sporting elements and exclusive prints. The collection plays with contrasts and creates a modern casual look with a huge number of different designs ranging from floral and graphic patterns with supplementary block stripes and subtle detailing. The colour palette offers soft shades of millennial pinks in variations of blush and salmon. Sage green becomes a strong member alongside this season’s neutrals of beige, stone, crisp white and stone grey that mix well with khaki and navy, and in total contrast varsity red or college red is very favourable to liven up the tempo. Stocked in over 80 Irish men’s retailers nationwide.

GREEN ANGEL SUNRISE MAGIC SEAWEED BODY SMOOTHER WITH ORGANIC ARGAN OIL (400G) RRP: €29.95 Exfoliating is key for revealing brighter skin. Green Angel Sunrise Magic Seaweed Body Smoother with Organic Argan Oil is a multi-award winning product which combines four varieties of handharvested organic Irish seaweeds, Irish Atlantic sea salt, organic Argan and Grapeseed oils with pure essential oils of Grapefruit and Lemon – a zesty combination that’s simply amazing for a tired body. It also contains organic Argan Oil, known as liquid gold, enriched with the natural anti-oxidant Vitamin E which helps preserve skin by creating a barrier on the dermal layer to helps block free radicals and other environmental aggressors. The full range of Green Angel skincare, haircare and spa products, are available from the Kilkenny Shop, Avoca, Shaws, Meadows & Byrne and leading pharmacies and lifestyle shops nationwide. Alternatively buy online at www.greenangel.com.

URIAGE EAU MICELLLAIRE THERMALE RRP: €15

Micellar water is made up of micelles (tiny balls of cleansing oil molecules) suspended in soft water. It removes makeup, dirt and impurities along with cleansing and moisturising your skin. Uriage Eau Micelllaire Thermale is perfectly suited for sensitive skin which is subject to redness. This product is enriched with Apricot extract that helps to repair, protect and sooth the skin. The use of Uriage Thermal Water aids in moisturisation and rebuilding the damaged skin barrier. It promotes the reduction of redness. All Uriage Eau Micellaire Thermale products are available in pharmacies nationwide and at www. uriage.ie

LACURA PINK CLAY EXFOLIATOR: €3.99/100ML

Pink Clay is known for its amazing benefits for sensitive skin. Commonly referred to as the most gentle of all the clays, Pink Clay is suitable for all skin types because of its very light texture and restorative properties. Unlike other clay masks, which work to absorb excess moisture and remove oiliness, Pink Clay masks do not remove the skin’s natural oils, making it perfect for dry, tight and dehydrated skin which needs a helping hand when it comes to staying hydrated. Pink Clay benefits skin by providing a boost of natural minerals which help to replenish skin with the nourishment it needs to function well and retain moisture. The Lacura Pink Clay Exfoliator cleanses and exfoliates skin naturally to leave it feeling purified and refreshed. Contains extracts of Mangosteen, Australian Kakadu Plum and Macadamia Oil. Available in 137 Aldi stores nationwide while stocks last.

SEAT Ireland delivers exceptional sales results SEAT Ireland has announced outstanding sales results for the first quarter of 2019. Cementing its position as one of the fastest growing car brands in the Irish market, Q1 has seen SEAT consistently outperform the Irish market which is down some 11 per cent overall, by increasing its sales by 7 per cent year on year resulting in a record market share of 3.34 per cent. Driving SEAT’s success is its dynamic product offering, with SEAT now boasting the youngest product range in the market. Central to this is its outstanding SUV range comprising of the awardwinning SEAT Arona, the SEAT Ateca and all new SEAT Tarraco all of which have resonated with Irish customers, playing a pivotal role in the brand’s remarkable performance. Also central to the

success is the dedication and exceptional experience guaranteed at their 24-strong dealer network. Particularly impressive is the performance of Ireland’s Small Crossover of the Year 2019, the SEAT Arona, which is continuing to establish itself as one of the hallmarks of the SEAT brand, accounting for 29 per cent of overall sales in Q1, a staggering increase

of 69 per cent on the same period in 2018. Niall Phillips, Brand Director at SEAT Ireland, said: “We have really hit the ground running in 2019. As we reflect on very strong sales for Q1, we can confidently point to the significant impact the brand is having in the Irish market as we become more and more relevant for Irish consumers. “The development of our product range

over the past three years, particularly our SUV range, has been a gamechanger for the brand in Ireland and with the youngest and most dynamic range in the market, we are offering motorists more quality, value and choice than ever before.” SEAT Ireland is a subsidiary of SEAT SA with responsibility for a 24-strong dealer network in Ireland.

The brand recorded a record-breaking sales performance in 2018 with a 12 per cent increase in registrations. The brand is enjoying a 3 per cent market share which is up a staggering 20 per cent year on year. Fuelling SEAT’s success in the Irish market is its outstanding SUV range which continues to resonate with Irish motorists. The SEAT Arona Crossover, winner of the best Irish Small Crossover of the year at the prestigious Irish Car of the Year Awards 2019, accounted for 28 per cent of sales in 2018. The award-winning SEAT Ateca closely followed the Arona Crossover with 20 per cent of SEAT sales in 2018. Furthermore, SEAT’s commitment to offering motorists attractive finance offers has led to a surge in customers.

The Mark Lanegan Band to play Button Factory show IN SUPPORT of the upcoming release of new album ‘Somebody’s Knocking’, which is due out on October 18, the Mark Lanegan Band are set to return to Ireland with shows in Dublin and Belfast this December. The debut single ‘Stitch It Up’ from the album is out now. Never idle, Lanegan is about to embark on a May US tour that follows the release this past August of his album with Duke Garwood ‘With Animals’ and, preceding that, the 2017 release of ‘Gargoyle’, both of which were put out through Heavenly Recordings. Singing with a deep, nicotine-ravaged growl that's rich, strong, and sensuously forbidding, Mark Lanegan first rose to fame when his band the Screaming Trees won a taste of mainstream

recognition in the '90s. Though his first success was tied to the grunge scene, Lanegan subsequently carved out a strong identity of his own as a vocalist and songwriter. His solo work has veered from the semi-acoustic atmospheres of 1990's ‘The Winding Sheet’ and 1998's ‘Scraps at Midnight’ to the adventurous hard rock of 2004's ‘Bubblegum’ and 2012's ‘Blues Funeral’ and all the way through to the clean electronic surfaces of 2014's ‘Phantom Radio’. Over his career Lanegan has been a frequent collaborator with a number of noted artists, including Greg Dulli, Queens of the Stone Age, Isobel Campbell, Soulsavers, and Duke Garwood. Lanegan has always been a prolific

collaborator but this has never meant putting his solo career on the back burner. 2001's ‘Field Songs’ offered the sort of dark, roots-oriented

Band, though instead of a set band, the tracks featured a rotating variety of accompanists including Josh Homme and PJ Harvey. A second Mark Lanegan Band set, ‘Blues Funeral’, appeared in 2012, while Lanegan dropped two albums in 2013, a collaboration with multiinstrumentalist Duke Garwood titled ‘Black Pudding’, and a second album devoted to covers, ‘Imitations’. 2014 brought a third full-length from the Mark Lanegan Band, ‘Phantom Radio’, and in 2015, Lanegan partnered with a handful of producers and remix artists (including Moby, UNKLE, Soulsavers, and Mark Stewart) to songs create ‘A Thousand Miles that were his trademark, of Midnight: Phantom and 2004's more rockoriented ‘Bubblegum’ was Radio Remixes’. By this time, Lanegan's the first album credited solo career had to The Mark Lanegan

generated enough music to merit two different retrospective releases; in 2014, Light in the Attic issued the careerspanning compilation ‘Has God Seen My Shadow? An Anthology 1989-2011’, while in 2015 Sub Pop released ‘One Way Street’, a vinyl-only collection that featured new LP pressings of Lanegan's first five solo albums. In 2017, Lanegan released ‘Gargoyle’, an album written with his frequent collaborators Alain Johannes and Rob Marshall; it also featured guest appearances from Josh Homme and Greg Dulli. Lanegan and Duke Garwood teamed up once again to record 2018's ‘With Animals’, a set dominated by spare and evocative electronic accompaniment. The eagerly anticipated

‘Somebody’s Knocking’, due for release on October 18, came together in an 11-day session in LA, with many of the deepest musical influences on the record being European. They were either the aforementioned electronic artists or newer, murkier forms provided by writing partners Martin Jenkins (who records as Pye Corner Audio for Ghost Box) or Rob Marshall - a collaborator on ‘Gargoyle’ and on his own, forthcoming album. Like Lanegan’s best work, the album is set to tell its own stories and weaves its own wonders, conjuring up feverish hallucinogenic visions to sit atop roughly hewn electronics. The Mark Lanegan Band are in the Button Factory on December 17. Tickets are €28.50

Better catch Oblivion Community Center before all tickets are sold! CURRENTLY selling out shows around the world on their US and European Tour, Better Oblivion Community Center - Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst’s new band - are set to play their debut Irish show at Vicar Street on May 13. Limited tickets remain for what is set to be an incredible show. On the road, Phoebe and Conor have been performing the entire Better Oblivion Community Center album, alongside reinterpretations of Bright Eyes and fan favourites and live covers of tracks such as The Killers’ Human and Death Cab for Cutie’s Title and Registration that have been setting the internet alight. The rumours percolating since summer on fan sites, Reddit boards and Twitter were finally confirmed in January when an album entitled ‘Better Oblivion Community Center’ by Better Oblivion Community Center

appeared on DSPs, shortly followed by a live performance of ‘Dylan Thomas’ on the Late Show With Stephen Colbert on CBS. The new band, formed by Phoebe Bridgers and Conor Oberst, kept their plans under wraps for months as they wrote and recorded in Los Angeles in the summer and autumn of 2018. By the tail end of the year rumours were swirling and a mysterious phone number appeared on social media platforms. Fans of both artists began receiving enigmatic brochures in the mail and a bus stop advertising the Better Oblivion Community Center appeared in their hometown of LA. The album - released by Dead Oceans - appeared without warning on DSPs and within the hour the band were performing for the very first time on American network television. Produced by Bridgers,

Better Oblivion Community Center - Phoebe Bridgers & Conor Oberst’s new band - are set to play their debut Irish show at Vicar Street in May. Oberst and long time Oberst/Bright Eyes collaborator Andy LeMaster, Better Oblivion Community Center features the work of several talented friends: Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ guitarist Nick Zinner appears on two tracks (first single ‘Dylan Thomas’ and ‘Dominoes’) while Carla Azar (Autolux, Jack White) plays drums on half of the album. Dawes’ rhythm section Wylie Gelber and Griffin Goldsmith appear on the other half.

Singer/songwriter Christian Lee Hutson contributes guitar and Anna Butterss provides bass. Zinner joined Phoebe and Conor for their live performance on Stephen Colbert, along with the touring band, Emily Retsas, Elizabeth Goodfellow and Christian Lee Hutson. Limited remaining tickets for Better Oblivion Community Center live at Vicar Street on May 13 are priced from €27.50 plus booking fee (additional charges may apply).

New climate action resource is now available for teachers A NEW climate action teacher resource has been made available to all post primary schools. The resource was announced recently by Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Richard Bruton. “This resource, developed by the Green Schools team, will help bring climate action into the classroom, providing schools with lesson plans, presentations, surveys and data to learn and discuss what is the biggest issue of our time,” the minister said. “This is an area where we need to step up our response. Young people have shown their interest and their passion. We need to make sure that the curriculum is there so that they can learn in a more structured way.” Green-Schools Climate Action Officer Gráinne Ryan spoke about the new resource. “I hope this resource equips not only Geography teachers but also CSPE, Science and English teachers with the tools and guidance to explore climate through their curriculum,” she said. Green-Schools Manager, Cathy Baxter added: “Green-Schools thanks all the teachers that have worked so hard on this programme over so many years. “We hope resources like this can provide some support to them in their critical work with students.” John Mulcahy, Chair of Cork Geography Teachers Association, also welcomed the launch of the Climate Action Resource. “We welcome this new resource from GreenSchools for its focus on Climate Change and its active learning approach; it is full of ideas for classroom discussion and actions designed to engage students in coming to grips with the central issue of our age.” Meanwhile, it has been announced that 17 schools, including three in Dublin, are to benefit

comprehensively to ensure that the measures were suitable for that school and would deliver value to both the school and the pilot. The three Dublin schools selected are all in Tallaght: St Kevin’s Boys; St Kevin’s Girls; and St Dominic’s. Design teams have been appointed to each cluster, with

medium to deep energy efficiency works to be delivered in summer 2019. The upgrades target a 33 percent energy efficiency improvement and involve upgrades to doors and windows, insulation, lighting and heating upgrades as well as renewable technologies.

Winner of the Memorex Culture Award

Children from local schools showed their passion for the environment during the nationwide climate action protest. PHOTO DARREN KINSELLA from a €7 million fund targeting energy use reduction by 33 percent, The schools have been selected for energy efficiency works under a government-funded retrofit pilot programme for 2019. The programme focuses on projects to reduce energy consumption, test retrofit solutions, build capacity and test delivery and procurement models. It is jointly funded with a €7 million budget from the Department of Education and Department of Communication, Climate Action and Environment. Now in its third year, the aim of the pilot

programme is to create a scalable model for energy efficiency retrofitting of schools. This is taking place in advance of the major programme of retrofits scheduled to commence in 2022, as outlined in Project Ireland 2040. Subject to resources, it is intended to expand the intake of schools in the pilot programme in the lead up to 2022. Minister for Education and Skills, Joe McHugh, said the programme sets an example by creating a better environment to learn and work for pupils, staff and teachers. “The money saved by ‘greening’ will support schools to concentrate

resources on doing what they do best – teach,” he added. “This pilot programme will demonstrate the most environmentallyfriendly, highperformance and costeffective solutions to turn older school buildings into top-rated energyefficient buildings. “It’s good for schools and good for the environment.” CEO of Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), Jim Gannon, also spoke about the programme. “SEAI supports schools with energy efficiency through student workshops and resources (50,000+ students

per annum), energy management (700+ schools to date), and allows them to report energy data through our monitoring and reporting system (2,279 schools in 2018),” he said. “Since 2017, this pilot programme is providing a pathway towards a retrofit solution for all schools in Ireland, helping us deliver on national targets.” For the 2019 pilot, 17 schools have been selected in five geographical clusters, covering all four provinces and including a mix of urban and rural areas. Each school was assessed

Let the garden be a summer playground for the family THE Easter break might be over but it won’t be too long before school summer holidays and for some homes that means tantrums, trouble and tears. It’s not easy to keep the kids entertained at the best of times. And with the schools closed for weeks it’s a full time job unless you start making some preparations now. It’s an important job – not just to keep the little darlings occupied and out from under your feet, but with rising obesity levels in Ireland giving the kids some healthy alternatives to TV and video games is crucial to their well being. Looking for ways to keep the children busy can be a real challenge. If you live in an urban

area or if the kids are very young, often the only outdoor play area available is in the garden. However, gardens are usually designed from an adult’s perspective and hold little interest or physical stimulation for children. But you can let your child feel that the garden is their space too by giving them some responsibility. One of the best ways to encourage a child's interest in all things horticultural is to let them have a patch or pots of their own. Give them plants and seeds that grow or germinate quickly such as sunflowers and herbs. You can give them their own special pots decorated with their favourite cartoon characters or populate

their own special plot with cute garden ornaments that you can pick up in any garden centre. Keep safety in mind and remember that although we are extremely lucky to have access to many different harmless plant species in Ireland, there are many that are dangerous around little people. Do some research and ask at your local garden centre if you are in any doubt to a plant’s suitability. Of course planting and tendering their new plants will only keep the kids occupied for a while – they also need to lose themselves in playtime. There’s nothing quite like sand and water to occupy a child on a warm, sunny day. Construct a sand pit

using railway sleepers or large planks for the framework. Use two per side, eight sleepers or planks in total, to create an eightfoot square pit. Line it with weed suppressing membrane and fill with a proprietary play sand. This is very important as play sand has been washed and is nonstaining, unlike other types of sand. It’s important to provide a cover for the pit when not in use as the neighbourhood cats will see the sand pit as a new communal toilet. As the children get older you can convert the sand pit into a shed base or use the space to construct a pond. Use the sand as a smooth underlay for the pond liner to sit upon.

NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST 08.05.19 Add water, plants, provide a fountain and you’ve got a great water feature. If the children are old enough ask for their help in constructing their own 'secret den' such as a willow wigwam or hideaway. Use living willow to create a natural 'canopy' by planting each piece approximately three to four inches apart in a circle. Tie off the top with raffia or jute to hold it together. They'll have hours of fun running in and out and expect a request to 'camp' in it overnight with their pals. It’s true that children's tastes are becoming more sophisticated and a 'Play Centre' in the garden would fit the bill nicely. The beauty of contemporary wooden playground equipment is that not only does it look good, it can also be purchased as modules, enabling the overall framework to be expanded in accordance with a child's capabilities. Equipment is often designed for children aged between three and ten years and where you can select a basic 'fort' and slide with access ladder or purchase a complete play centre. This would include a number of modules including a play tower, swings including a 'child swing' for very young kids aged nine months to three-years-old, rope ladders, and even a spiral slide if you are looking for something a bit different. Consider using an appropriate safety surface under any play equipment to reduce the risk of injuries should a child fall. Play equipment usually comes flat packed, and all play sets come pre-cut and pre-drilled for easy assembly. And as they sit on the surface of the ground there is little or no digging or cementing and couldn't be easier to install. If you’ve a bigger garden you can consider purchasing a bridge, hand grips, glider swing or ramp to truly customise you play centre that will keep the kids entertained for hour after hour. However, do remember mums and dads that this equipment is for children only!

Antiques are finding a home in contemporary interiors IT MIGHT sound like a contradiction, but antique objects and furniture are fast becoming something of a must have for all the best contemporary interiors. Designers such as award-winning interiors architect, Róisín Lafferty, Image Interior’s designer of the year 2018, are very much in favour of this practice. According to the experts, mixing pieces from past and present can be the perfect way to create a fresh and fashionable new look. “For me, interior spaces should tell a story, antiques add depth, interest and originality and they come with their own story,” said Róisín, founder of Kingston Lafferty Design.

nut Killian McNulty of The Vintage Hub and MidCentury Online would also encourage those in search of stylish homes to take a trip to their nearest antique dealer. “With the right touch, an eclectic mix of pieces from different periods can instantly achieve a very contemporary yet timeless interior,” said Killian, who is a member of the Irish Antique Dealers Association. But if you live in a modern home, how do you get it right when it comes to mixing old and new? Interiors expert Róisín advises looking at the shape of your rooms and what you already have, then considering what would complement them.

“I love being in a space where the longer you are there, the more you notice. Antiques give you that depth, because they are full of interesting forms, delicacy and detailing.” Róisín encourages home decorators, and indeed those decorating a work place, not to be daunted by the idea of including pieces from times past. “Antiques can be similar to art in that people can feel a bit intimidated by them. However, like art, antiques are about what moves you. So, pick pieces you like and things you are drawn to. “By exploring antique shops and markets, you will discover a whole new world of possibilities.” Self-described furniture
