Northside artist honours victim of terrorist attack A NORTHSIDE artist was so moved by a French policeman’s heroic act of bravery that he decided to paint a portrait as a way to honour the heroism of the fallen Gendarme. Gendarmerie Lieutenant-Colonel Arnaud Beltrame (44) was killed on March 24, 2018 after offering himself in exchange for one of the hostages during a terrorist attack in a supermarket in Trebes, France. Lauded as a hero in Emma O’Kelly, Sam Kelly and Lily-Rose Kelly, from Beaumont, joined Kaitlin Chandler, from Carrickmines, for the France and worldwide, healthy eating message at a National Banana Day celebration at Connolly Station. In its third year, the event is a Lieutenant-Colonel reminder to shoppers to think when12:36 it comes to choosing a natural and nutritious convenience food. mfcu_Feb_13.pdf 1 bananas 07/02/2019 Beltrame was PHOTO: MAC INNES PHOTOGRAPHY

Scouts get support from fund DUBLIN Airport has announced its support for a new climbing and traversing wall for the 120th Portmarnock Scouts from its €10 million Community Fund.

The wall is one of many projects in the local community that is being supported by the fund. Speaking at the official opening of the wall, Dublin Airport’s Head of External

Communications Siobhán O’Donnell said: “It’s really exciting to see the variety of different projects that are being delivered in the local community as a result of our community fund

initiative. “It is hugely uplifting to see the good that is being done in clubs and community groups with the funding they have received.”

Portmarnock Scout Group Leader Peter O’Kelly said they were very grateful to the fund for recognising the potential value the community gains from the addition of the wall to their den. “Most importantly for Portmarnock Scouts, climbing is a fully inclusive activity from our youngest Beaver Scouts to our oldest

Venture Scouts, male and female can all take part in this wonderful pursuit,” said Mr O Kelly. “There are many benefits of taking part in climbing activities, including promoting motor skills and cognitive development in young people through problem solving, improving core strength and muscle tone

as well as developing hand and foot coordination.” The aim of the traversing wall is to introduce scouts to new skills, increase confidence and instil a sense of adventure to increase interest in the local environment. The 120th Portmarnock Scouts plan to make the traversing wall available for other scouts and guides groups to use.

A cashless society is not for me

I WAS in a pub recently that refused to serve me drink. Nothing to do with my behaviour or breaches of the dress code, I must stress. My crime? I tried to pay for my drinks with a card. “We don’t take cards,” the cranky owner barked. When I asked if there was a nearby ATM, she shook her head and gave my now settled pint of Uncle Arthur to a man beside me who was proffering actual money – the smug git! This particular publican was

your bank balance the next day. To me, cash is still very much king. But its reign is under threat on a number of fronts. The current criminal trend across Northern Ireland to scoop out ATMs with stolen diggers may result in them not being replaced in some towns that have been targeted. Ultimately, this will drive more and more consumers down the cashless route. I suspect that businesses throughout the island of Ireland will be monitoring the situation closely and reviewing the provision of ATM

facilities in the face of this criminality. But even the humble ATM, which revolutionised how we accessed our money, has its faults. Is it just me, or do people not know how to use them anymore? I regularly find myself in long queues while customers take an eternity to withdraw money, squinting at the screen as if they’ve just discovered a black hole. And most annoying of all are those people who have the audacity to then take out a second card and start the whole sorry process all over again! I refuse to believe, however, that

transactions by card are a quicker way to pay than with cash. I often see queues forming at a till while a vendor waits for a cashless receipt to print (or apologises for the delay as they can’t get a signal). I’m not a huge fan of technology when it comes to shopping. I have yet to use a self-service till at my local supermarket without requesting assistance. I hate the direction we’re being pushed in as consumers and yearn for a simpler, more traditional approach. And it doesn’t get any simpler than cash.

certainly bucking the trend by refusing card payments. I grew up in an era where living in a cashless society simply meant that you were stony broke. Now we’re told it’s the future, with one coffee shop in Dublin recently making headlines for refusing to accept cash. Personally, I’m not a fan of this trend. These days, it’s now even possible to make payments via your mobile phone; another indicator that digital technology is further encroaching on once-normal, day-today functions. Besides, you know where you stand with cash. You take out what you need and it has to last you for the week – or at least until your next pay day. If you are prone to impulsive spending, the lure of the card tap can be your undoing. It’s just so damn convenient; it’s like buying without spending money – until you check

Scheme aims to increase use of park A LOCAL community activist is looking to set up a scheme in a Northside park with the aim of seeing it utilised more. The Stardust Park in Coolock comprises 20 acres of beautiful green space with the Santry River flowing through the middle. The river runs into a small lake with a small island that is home to many birds including swans and ducks. Madeleine Ebbs, who works for Dublin City Council’s community section, said it’s a great shame it is not utilised much more. “The park is held dear by many people in the area, as the memorial

garden was built to commemorate the lives of those who died in the Stardust Nightclub tragedy,” she told Northside People. “To try and promote more people using the park, we started up the Stardust Walking Club almost two years ago. It was originally aimed at young parents with children for a meet-up point. “As it turned out, an older age profile of people joined in and are now the resident walking club. This takes place every Tuesday morning at 9.30am. It is a 3k walk. “People have become obsessed with joining gyms and the like, but right here beside your

house, you have the ideal training space, fresh air and beautiful surroundings.” Ms Ebbs said walking promotes good health. “Doctors are now prescribing exercise over pills,” she said. “Walking might just be the best exercise there is. “The continuous feedback from the walkers is always most welcome and encouraging.”However, despite the success of the walking club, Ms Ebbs said they get a lot of complaints from residents who live close to the park regarding anti-social behaviour, “Along with the gardai we do all we can to

The Stardust Memorial Park in Coolock. FILE PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA curtail the problems,” she said. “We had similar problems in the park in Darndale just over three years ago. “We set up a scheme whereby some of the locals came on board to work for a couple of hours each day in the park. “It has since turned

from being a no-go area to a beautiful aesthetic open space, to include the hugely successful Darndale Football Club and the extremely popular parkrun. It also boasts a fishing club.” Ms Ebbs added: “I would like to see a similar scheme up and running in the Stardust Park, so if anyone out

there reading this would like to have a chat, I would be delighted to talk with them.” The Stardust Memorial Park was officially opened in 1993. Meanwhile, a job opportunity working in the Stardust Memorial Park and earning €225 per week is now available.

Plan to allow for new homes A NORTHSIDE local election candidate is calling on the public to engage fully with a plan for their area. The Castlelands Area Plan was unveiled to councillors last week at the Balbriggan/ Swords area committee meeting. It is a significant plan which is expected to be

implemented over the next 10 years and will have an impact in north Fingal for decades to come. The plan will be open for submissions from the public between May 7 and May 28 and will then be voted on at a full council meeting on July 8. The council-owned land could allow for the building

of up to 1,000 homes and is expected to bring Balbriggan's population to over 30,000. The plan presented at the council also outlined other key elements including the space for swimming pool, football pitches, school and playground areas,” he said. With regards to the

housing, it is proposed that 60 percent will be sold privately, 30 percent sold as affordable and 10 percent social housing. Garrett Mullan, who will contest the local elections for the Social Democrats in the Balbriggan Local Electoral Area (LEA), said: “There are a number of

important questions arising from the presentation of this plan. “Firstly, in regards to the social housing allocation which is very low considering the land is State owned. I am also informed locally, that all primary schools are at capacity and would hope that any


increase in population will be met with increased capacity of school, health and others. “The increased population will mean increased traffic demand but the plan does not indicate any increase in public transport provision and I am very concerned

rooms in the country, where little has changed since 1828 and the wallpaper and curtains have been hanging since the 1820s. A must see feature of the house is the Museum of Curiosities.

Dublin’s finest SEVEN individuals and a voluntary organisation were the recipients of a Lord Mayor’s Award at the Mansion House recently. These are people and groups who have made a special contribution to this great city and its citizens. The 2019 recipients were: Kellie Harrington (boxer), John Sheahan (musician),

Marie Tyrrell (manager of Larkin Centre), Norah Casey (broadcaster, publishing entrepreneur and equality rights campaigner), parkrun Ireland (volunteerled free-to-enter 5k run), Christy Dignam (singer), Aoife McGivney (nurse who performed life-saving CPR on a bus driver when he fell ill) and Noel Carroll (Irish

middle distance runner who set European and World Records in the 1960s) – posthumous award. Lord Mayor Nial Ring said the ceremony is one of the highlights of his term of office. “I have chosen to honour individuals and a group from many different walks of life,” he said.  

“However, all of them have one thing in common: they have enriched all our lives in some way, whether through their music, their sporting achievements or simply their work in supporting and caring for others. This acknowledgement of their contribution is richly deserved.”

a credit to France.” Speaking to Northside People after visiting the French Embassy, Mr Fallon said the people of France have been going through a terrible time following the terror incidents including Nice and the Bataclan Theatre. “When I read an article about that man (Colonel Arnaud Beltrame), I wondered how his family must be feeling. “There was obviously

nothing I could do personally but I thought the painting might just be a way of marking his heroic act. “Shortly after the man died I started the painting and it took a couple of months to complete.” Mr Fallon was overwhelmed with the response of the French Embassy when he contacted them. “I was flabberghasted when I heard the painting

would be hung up in the museum. The whole thing just took off. “I was not looking for payment and I would gladly have handed over the painting without publicity for myself. My motivation was to let them (Colonel Arnaud Beltrame’s familuy), know that this was such a brave thing to do. “The Ambassador and his staff at the Embassy on Ailesbury Road were

absolutely wonderful on the day of the ceremony. They were so nice to us.” Bernard has been painting and sketching all his life. From an early age he showed interest in the process of figurative painting, encouraged and instructed by his father John Fallon, an artist and picture restorer. According to Bernard, John and Joe Peake, his business partner, were given the job of restoring

the Stations of the Cross paintings in the ProCathedral in the 1960s. Bernard is also a member of the Ayrfield Men’s Shed. “I joined 18 months ago and it’s a bit of craic,” he adds. “It gets you out of the house and it’s a social thing. They are a great bunch of lads.” If you would like to know more about Bernard and his work, visit www.

Kilmore locals preparing for spring clean Callum Lavery

Rogerstown Park: the site at Balleally was once home to a major landfill dump.

Former landfill dump transformed into park LOCALS in north county Dublin will soon be able to enjoy an amenity that was once a major landfill dump. The former dump at Balleally, between Lusk and Rush, has been transformed into a stunning new park. Fingal County Council will officially launch Phase 1 of Rogerstown Park this Saturday, April 27. The ceremony will begin at 11am. The park will initially be opened on a phased basis, offering stunning walks with panoramic views across Rogerstown Estuary and beyond to Lambay Island, Portrane and Donabate. Operations ceased at Balleally Landfill in 2012.

Local candidate launches bid for a council seat SHANE Folan, Labour’s local election candidate for the Donaghmede Local Electoral Area (LEA), launched his campaign recently at Raheny United Football Club. Speaking at the event, Mr Folan said: “It is an honour for me to run for Dublin City Council at this important time. “We face many challenges with the housing crisis and tackling climate change and we need progressive, sustainable solutions. “I, like so many of my peers, feel the effects of the housing crisis every day. “Rents are sky high, house prices are soaring,

but we can’t solve them alone. “A forward looking, progressive council is needed.” Speaking at the event, Senator Ged Nash (Lab), said: “I know Shane will make a fine representative for the area. “The energy he puts into campaigning on issues like equality, making Dublin a green city, and having a community led response to the housing crisis. “I think with Shane, the residents of Donaghmede will have someone fighting for them on Dublin City Council.” Cllr Alison Gilliland (Lab), who represents

Boost as new link road opens in Balbriggan Fingal County Council’s investment in the road opens up almost 23 hectares of industrially zoned lands for development with the potential to bring approximately 900 new jobs to the area. Balbriggan is only 20 minutes from Dublin Airport and 25 minutes from Dublin Port. The M1 motorway is two kilometres away from Stephenstown Industrial Park while the nearby M50 makes much of the rest of the country highly accessible and the

Then look no further than the annual ARC 5K and 10K run which takes place on Monday, May 6 in the leafy surroundings of Phoenix Park. This year, ARC is appealing for more supporters to sign up and participate in the run as demand for its services continues to grow. Since its inception in 2008, nearly 5,000 people have taken part in the run in aid of ARC Cancer Support Centres. The 2019 ARC run will start at 10am sharp and all levels of fitness are welcome and don’t panic, you can walk, run, skip, jog, dance or crawl your way around the course! Registration is online at http://arccancersupport. ie/5K-10K run. ARC provides a range of free services to people affected by cancer and their loved ones. These include psychological, emotional, educational and practical support, complementary therapies and counselling services.

Northside city councillor publishes new book LORD Mayor of Dublin Cllr Nial Ring launched a new book about the Mansion House recently, written by a Northside councillor. Cllr Mícheál Mac Donncha’s book is titled: 'The Mansion House & the Irish Revolution - Teach an Ardmhéara agus Réabhlóid na hÉireann 1912-23'. Dublin's Mansion House has been a centre of political and social life for the past 300 years. In the revolutionary years 1912–1923 it was the scene of many key events in the struggle for national independence and social

progress – including the women’s movement, the fight for trade union rights and the movement for national independence, culminating in the establishment of Dáil Eireann and the underground Government of the Irish Republic, the formal address of which was the Mansion House. For the first time, this book by Cllr Mac Donncha brings these events together in this historic location. Cllr Mac Donncha, a Sinn Fein councillor for the Donaghmede Local Electoral Area (LEA),

said: “Having researched this book I realised that the Mansion House was even more central to the events of 1912 to 1923 than I had suspected. And it was seen as such at the time. People looked to it as a place where debate took place and ideas and leadership emerged. “For example, I had not been aware that, in common with many ordinary homes throughout Ireland, the Mansion House was raided and damaged on several occasions by British crown forces during the War of Independence.”

Local students raise the flag for positive mental health THE Amber Flag Committee at Bremore Educate Together Secondary School in Balbriggan held a special event recently for all staff, students and families. The event, which took place on April 12, was an important part of the school’s application to renew its Amber Flag active status for 2019. The Pieta House Amber Flag initiative recognises the individual efforts of schools, companies and groups to create healthy, inclusive environments that support mental wellbeing. It unites these groups in their efforts, working together toward a

happier, healthier Ireland and eradicates stigmas associated with mental health issues. Bremore ETSS was one of the first schools in Dublin to be awarded an Amber Flag in 2018. The day began at 5.30am with a Sunrise Walk to Balbriggan beach and return to the school.   At the beach the students continued their tradition of forming a human worry chain in a large circle and breaking the chain live on their twitter account. At 7.30am, all students, staff, parents and families were invited to a hearty breakfast in the school with all food/drinks

sponsored and provided by Borza Fish and Chips and Tesco Balbriggan. After breakfast, the Amber Flag committee put on several workshops for all students to promote positive mental health around the school and show them different activities they can do at home and in life to help them during a tough day. The workshops included baking, dancing, sports, gaming, music, art, sewing, gardening, yoga and meditation. The day concluded with an end-of-term awards ceremony to celebrate all the positive successes and hard work from students throughout the term.

RNLI sends out Mayday call VOLUNTEER lifeboat crews on the Northside are calling on people to support Mayday, the RNLI’s annual national fundraising campaign as they announced their rescue figures for 2018. Dublin volunteer crewmember and comedian PJ Gallagher helped launch the campaign along with fundraiser Mary Nolan Hickey, in a bid to encourage people to sign up at to hold an event or donate. The volunteer lifeboat crew at Howth RNLI launched 37 times in 2018 bringing 36 people to safety, while lifeboat crew at Skerries launched 15 times, bringing 40 people to safety. These rescues were only possible because of the donations made to the charity by supporters. Veteran marathon runner Mary Nolan Hickey who ran around the coastline of Ireland last year to raise funds for the RNLI at the age of 65 is

helping the RNLI launch Mayday. She raised over €72,000 but felt that she had not yet completed her fundraising for the charity. Mary is now cycling around Ireland counter clockwise on her bike to try and bring her funds raised for the charity to €100,000 and will call into the two North Dublin stations on her final leg of the journey. For the month of May, the RNLI’s Mayday campaign is asking people to ‘do their bit, to fund our kit’ with the lifesaving charity hoping to raise €780,000 to fund the crucial kit volunteer crews rely on, which includes lifejackets, helmets and the RNLI’s yellow wellies. There are over 1,500 volunteer lifeboat crewmembers in Ireland providing a 24-hour search and rescue service. Speaking at the launch, RNLI volunteer crewmember and comedian PJ Gallagher

To enter the competition, send a short, creative video explaining why you and your team would love the opportunity to train with Rob Kearney and how you incorporate milk into your everyday diet. All entries should be sent to trainwithrob@ by 5pm on May 10. For terms and conditions visit or Kearney, who recently won his 90th cap for Ireland, said: “I’m delighted to continue my work with the National Dairy Council and support this European campaign.

Skatalites mark anniversary with several top Dublin gigs FREQUENTLY credited as the originators of ska, The Skatalites are set to return to Ireland with shows in Dublin as they mark the 55th anniversary of the band. Having played main stage slots at Electric Picnic and Beatyard in the last two years, the July 16 gig in the Button Factory and their Beatyard return at Dun Laoghaire Harbour over the weekend of August 3 and 4, will be some of the band’s first headline shows in Ireland in some time. The original members of The Skatalites had played on hundreds of recording sessions before forming the band in 1964. They backed most of the vocalists in Jamaica at that time, including Bob Marley, Toots and The Maytals, Jimmy Cliff, Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe as well as many others.

After disbanding in 1965 the individual members continued playing in various groups as the music evolved from ska to rocksteady to reggae. In the late 70's a resurgence of interest in the music began in the UK which caused the creation of many bands such as The Specials, The English Beat, Madness, The Selecter and Bad Manners. This became known as the Two-Tone era and these British musicians fused rock music with the ska and reggae. In the early 80's the music started to spread to the US and other parts of the world and bands began to emerge playing different flavors of ska and reggae fused with whatever else they wanted to throw in, including hard core, jazz and even punk.

In 1983 The Skatalites reunited to play Reggae Sunsplash in Montego Bay and subsequently in London at The Crystal Palace for the UK version of the Sunsplash event. A few years later they began emigrating to America and in 1986 the first US shows began at The Village Gate in NYC. In 1989 the band supported Bunny Wailer on The Liberation Tour and in 1990 they embarked on their first headline tour of the states and have not stopped touring the world ever since. Their unique infectious brand of real Jamaican ska continues to please audiences of all ages across the globe year after year. This year sees The Skatalites back in the studio recording a new album following 2016’s

Frequently credited as the originators of ska, The Skatalites are set to return to Ireland.

Best beaches for a sun holiday Nights MAKRONISSOS BEACH, AYIA NAPA Secluded white sands lead to the azure ocean in this Blue Flag beach. Makronissos beach is actually two beaches, the Western beach and the main Makronissos beach itself. The main beach tends to get a little more crowded, especially in the summer, while the west beach is quieter, and thanks to its more open position tends to have better waves. If you’re planning on a little surfing or body-boarding, this is the beach to choose. The eastern main beach is protected from the prevailing winds, so the sea is calmer and great for the kids. Being a former reef, the Praia do Camilo, Portimao peninsula is home to a variety of interesting rock formations. There are some ancient tombs, which make it an interesting beach also.

Charity cycle aims to highlight mental health awareness CYCLE Against Suicide 2019 will begin this Saturday, April 27 at Westmanstown. The cycle will travel through Tullamore, Nenagh, Limerick, Listowel, Killarney, Mallow, Cashel, Kilkenny and Kildare before finishing in Westmanstown on May 6.   Cycle Against Suicide is an initiative to raise awareness of the help and support networks that are available to people battling depression, self-harm, at risk of suicide or those bereaved by suicide. At the launch with lead sponsor of the cycle, Iarnród Éireann, the organisation also announced a new social media initiative. The #ItsOKNotToFeelOK Challenge will invite people to show their support for and promote mental health awareness by taking a photo of themselves holding

a poster of the Cycle Against Suicide slogan, #ItsOKNotToFeelOK, and posting it on their social media channels, challenging their friends to get involved by tagging them. Building on the foundation of awareness that the charity has raised through its national and community-based cycles over the years, organisers are aiming to get at least 800 people involved in the online challenge – one person to represent each of the 800 kilometres. Speaking at the launch, chief executive of Cycle Against Suicide, Caroline Lafferty, said: “We all know someone affected by mental illness, even now stigma stops people from seeking help. “It is due to stigma, fear and lack of understanding that many of us don’t talk about it. “The #ItsOKNotToFeelok

challenge aims to dispel this stigma and increase the awareness and prevalence of mental health illness in our society, opening up the conversation around mental health awareness and suicide prevention. “This challenge and Cycle Against Suicide as an organisation is working to increase awareness of the support networks and treatments that are available to empower those affected.” The launch of the challenge took place at Connolly Station, marking the announcement of Iarnród Éireann as a sponsor of Cycle Against Suicide 2019. As part of this sponsorship, Irish Rail will be hosting a collection day on May 20 to raise funds for the charity. Corporate Communications Manager at Iarnród Éireann, Barry Kenny, said: “Cycle Against Suicide is an initiative that is

Event to raise funds to tackle homelessness THE Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) and the Simon Community are calling on members of the public to sign up to a campaign aimed at raising funds to tackle homelessness.  The 15th annual RIAI Simon Open Door campaign runs from Saturday, May 11 to Sunday, May 19.  In return for a €95 donation, homeowners can receive an hour-long consultation with an RIAIregistered architect to discuss building, rebuilding or renovating their homes. All funds raised go directly to the Simon Community to support their work in tackling homelessness. Due to demand in previous years, the initiative has been extended to run for nine days including two weekends, giving lots of opportunity to find a consultation time that suits. One of the country’s best-known architects, Dermot Bannon, is encouraging his fellow RIAI architects to take part and raise funds to help tackle the housing and homeless crisis. Last year’s event was the most successful yet. Architects across Ireland held a total of 1,820 consultations with homeowners to discuss renovations, rebuilds and new homes with a record sum of €163,800 raised. Architects who have queries relating to registering their practice for the campaign are asked to email Emma at

26 Pets



Blind dogs can be perfect pets WHETHER born blind or having lost sight through age, illness or accident, dogs are amazingly adaptive to life without sight and owning and training a blind dog can be a hugely rewarding experience. Considerate communication will give your blind dog the right kind of support to help them understand the world around them. Here are some safety tips: • Blind dogs learn to navigate their usual environment but might struggle in unfamiliar places so keep them on-lead and go slowly so they can acclimatise. Within the home keeping furniture in the same place will help your dog feel safe! • Padding sharp corners (i.e. coffee tables) and placing mats next to entrances/exits, or under water/ food bowls can help your dog learn to feel their surroundings! • In public spaces, it’s best to keep your dog on a long lead so there’s no risk of panic should they become separated from you. • Having a special word such as “careful” can help warn about obstacles. With repetition they will learn to slow down and feel around

with their feet when they hear you say “careful”. LIVING WITH YOUR BLIND DOG. • Be consistent with rules and routines, so they can be confident and unlikely to become confused about their environment and interactions. • Most blind dogs will be startled if touched when they are asleep or not

expecting it. You can help your dog to get used to this by gently touching them and immediately giving them a treat. Most blind dogs soon learn that being surprised is not necessarily a bad thing. However, occasionally a dog might become aggressive when surprised, as a means of communicating that they

are worried and need to be left alone in order to feel safe. If your dog reacts in this way or appears to become increasingly more startled when practising this, you should stop right away and contact a qualified behaviourist to support you reduce your dog’s anxiety. • Touch should always be positive for any dog, especially blind dogs so try not to interact with your blind dog when you are feeling frustrated or angry about anything, as they might sense this feeling from you and become worried or confused as they can’t understand why you are feeling this way. • Instead of allowing people to come straight over and pet them, always allow your dog to approach a person in their own time, and only if your dog chooses to. • If you have other pets in the home, keeping a bell on their collars can help your blind dog know where they are. • Blind dogs can get anxious if you have left the room without them noticing, always tell your dog that you are leaving. You can use a special word or phrase such as “back soon”! TRAINING YOUR BLIND DOG Most importantly, you will need plenty of patience and time for

training. You will also need plenty of imagination, because sound, touch and smell are key with a dog that can’t see! • Use food to lure your dog into the behaviour you would like them to do. For example, to teach a sit you can put a treat near your dog’s nose so that they can sniff it, then slowly lift it over their head – their bottom will naturally go down as they follow the treat with their nose – as soon as it touches the floor you can reward them by giving them the treat. • Teaching your blind dog specific words that are instructions is a very useful training technique. With the ‘sit’ for example, as your dog’s bottom hits the floor when you’re luring them with the treat say “sit”. After several repetitions they will associate this physical action with the word ‘sit’ – you can now ask them to sit without having to use the treat to lure them, but you can still give it to them as a reward!

e h t f o G DO WEEK The Dublin People has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogs. Top dogs this week is Bliss, a stunning 7-yearold male Greyhound with a heart of gold. He is a chilled out, calm boy who loves cuddles, meeting new people, food and a comfy bed to snooze on. Bliss is looking for a family who can give him all the rubs and cuddles he deserves. He is such a gentle boy who can live with young children and doesn’t mind sharing his castle with another dog. Bliss has partially impaired vision, but our Training and Behaviour Advisors will be happy to assist his new family with training or concerns they may have about this. If you're looking for a relaxed couch potato, Bliss is the right dog for you! If you have room in your heart and home for Bliss, then contact Dogs Trust on 01-8791000.

Reveal the garden’s inner beauty SPRING has well and truly sprung and Bord Bia is encouraging Dubliners to get down to their nearest GroMór garden centre and uncover the beauty of the garden. GroMór garden centres in Dublin include Easy Garden, Templeogue, Jones Garden Centre, Donabate, Newlands Home and Garden Centre, Clondalkin and Windyridge Garden Centre, Dun Laoghaire. GroMór ambassador, Super Garden judge, Gary Graham, has some great advice to help discover your green fingers and create your own super garden. For spring the theme focuses on the seasonal plants with ‘Garden Colour’ across April and May. The winter winds have blown the leaves away from the trees and the leaf buds are sprouting. Your garden is ready to go, so bring it to life with a burst of ‘Garden Colour’. There are a wide variety of plants that will brighten up your garden, and perennials are a good place to start as they come back every year. If you plant a flowering perennial every month, there will always be something blooming in your garden. Beautiful wallflowers, peonies, dicentras and euphorbias are perfect for April and if planted in clusters of at least four or five, they will really stand out. Bedding plants such as primroses, violas, pansies and geraniums are the surest way to get a splash of instant colour. Again, plant them in big groups of 12 or more and you will really see the results. Shrubs and bushes with colourful new leaves and spring flowers will add height and colour to set off the rest of your garden. There are plenty to choose from, April favourites include Pieris with their vibrant red leaves, and the beautiful

Donabate Portrane Dramatic Society is hitting the boards again with Eric Chappel's hilarious 'Haywire'. Alec Firth, a bookseller, and his beautiful assistant Liz have carefully plotted a top-secret trip to Marbella while his wife Maggie is away at the Tulip Fields for Easter, but they haven't reckoned on the ability of Alec's family (including the dog!) to throw a spanner in the sangria. ‘Haywire’ runs from Wednesday to Saturday, April 24-28 at 8pm in Donabate Community College. Phone 086-0712530 for more information.

PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION Swords Viewfinders Photography Club is holding its annual photography exhibition at the Malahide Parish Pastoral Centre, Main Street, Malahide until May 1. Approximately 100 images will be on display, covering a wide range of subjects. There is free admittance to the exhibition for all visitors. For more information visit www.

Located only 2.5km from the city centre, Glasnevin is a peaceful oasis in bustling urban Dublin. Opened in 1832, the cemetery is one of monumental national importance encapsulating the history of Ireland and is the burial place of over 1.6 million people. Passionate, knowledgeable and entertaining guides take you on a journey through Ireland’s fascinating past, visiting the gravesides of Ireland’s 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. THE O’CONNELL TOWER – 1ST ANNIVERSARY This April, Glasnevin celebrates the first anniversary since the reopening of 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 monument has been restored to its former glory and is now accessible to visitors. Climb the 198 steps to spectacular views of Dublin, Wicklow and the Irish Sea. To mark the anniversary Glasnevin are running a haiku competition giving applicants the chance to win complimentary passes and a bespoke Glasnevin poster. To be in with a chance to win, write a haiku related to either Daniel O’Connell or the tower itself and post on the Glasnevin Cemetery Museum Facebook page by May 17th using the #oconnellhaiku hashtag. DAILY GUIDED TOURS TheGeneral 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. UPCOMING MAY EVENTS Dead Interesting ‘National Drawing Day’ Tour @1pm on Saturday, 18th May. This Dead Interesting Tour will have an additional focus on the beautiful architecture and sculpture found in abundance throughout Glasnevin. Sketch or photograph your surroundings as you wander through Ireland’s largest cemetery with your knowledgeable guide. The cemetery is a treasure trove for genealogists, history-buffs and anyone with an interest in Irish history. Each burial record has been digitized and information is available online or through resident genealogist, Lynn Brady. Glasnevin’s mission today remains as it was handed from Daniel O’Connell “to bury people of all religions and nonewith 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.

FROM BALLOTS TO BULLETS’ A typist in Dublin Castle and spy for the IRA; a priest who rebelled against the British and his own church; and a playwright who spread the republican message coast to coast across America: these are just some of the personal stories told in ‘From Ballots to Bullets: Ireland 1918-1919’, an exhibition which draws on the National Library of Ireland (NLI)’s rich collections to paint a picture of two tumultuous years in Irish life. It’s free to visit, and is open seven days weekly: Monday to Saturday 10am to 5pm and 12noon to 5pm on Sundays. The exhibition runs in the NLI’s National Photographic Archive, Meeting House Square, Temple Bar until Sunday, May 26. For more information, visit
