A NORTHSIDE TD has called for vaccination programmes to be supported following the surge in cases of measles. Dublin Fingal TD Louise O’Reilly (SF) made the call after the HSE said it is managing a measles outbreak in the North Dublin area. The HSE said that since July, there have been 13 measles cases in adults and children in the north inner city. Deputy O’Reilly, Sinn Fein’s health spokesperson, said that over the past number of years there has been a resurgence across Ireland

and Europe of deadly diseases but there are vaccinations to prevent against them. “The genesis of this has been the spread of pseudo-scientific arguments online and the circulation of highly discredited research which has led to a loss of confidence in the vaccine among some people,” she said. “Currently there is a continental outbreak of measles of which Ireland has not escaped. “In the year so far, 76 cases of measles have been detected. This is a staggering increase on last

year when only one case was confirmed. “Across Europe more than 41,000 people have been infected so far this year with 37 deaths recorded as a result. “This is almost double the recorded amount in all of 2017 and eight times the recorded incidence in 2016 when only 5,273 cases were recorded.” Deputy O’Reilly said vaccination rates have dropped across Europe and Ireland has been no different. “Not vaccinating a child not only puts that child at Continued on page 2

More vaccinations urged following measles outbreak Continued from page 1 risk, it puts us all at risk,” she argued. “That message needs to be reinforced at every possible juncture, and if needs be, the Department of Health and the HSE should look at the possibility of rolling out an education programmes for parents on vaccinations. “We have the mechanisms and medicines to stop and

we need to be sensible and proactive and ensure that our children are vaccinated and that we ourselves are vaccinated.” Deputy O’Reilly added: “Vaccination programmes save lives, and (there) must be no equivocation, they must be supported.” In a statement, the Dublin Fingal TD Louise HSE said: “Transmission O’Reilly (SF) has occurred in Dublin eradicate deadly diseases hospitals and in households with poor such as measles -but,

vaccine uptake. “We are now starting to see cases that acquired measles in the wider inner city community. There have been no deaths from measles associated with this outbreak to date.” Dr Ruth McDermott, Public Health Doctor, said: “Measles can be a serious illness and is highly infectious. The best protection is to be fully vaccinated with two doses of MMR (Measles,

Mumps, and Rubella) vaccine.” The HSE said people at increased risk of getting measles are those who are not fully vaccinated with two doses of MMR vaccine or have not had measles in the past. The risk of measles remains for up to 21 days after contact with a case of measles. The HSE is advising people who think they may have measles to stay at home and phone their

GP for advice. People who are sick should not attend any congregated settings such as crèche, school, work or religious gatherings until they have recovered from illness, it added. Meanwhile, Cllr Éilis Ryan of the Workers’ Party said she will be tabling a motion at September's meeting of Dublin City Council, calling for a series of local measures to curtail recent and increasing

Fingal is your local Council


CONCERNS have been raised over the removal of potentially life-saving equipment from a Northside amenity. In the last four years Dublin City Council has had to replace 28 life buoys from the edge of the lake at Father Collins Park, Donaghmede, at a cost of just under € 1,800. Cllr Tom Brabazon (FF), who represents the Beaumont-Donaghmede


Local Electoral Area (LEA), received the figures from the city council. Cllr Brabazon has called on those responsible for continuing to remove life buoys to stop and think about what they are doing. “When the park was completed in 2009 there were serious reservations noted by several public representatives and local residents, including myself, regarding the beautiful lake

outbreaks of infectious diseases. “This is just the latest in a series of outbreaks of diseases which are entirely preventable,” said Cllr Ryan. “Measles is highly contagious, and even more so in a dense urban area like Dublin. It is right and proper that the city's local authority take emergency action to address the constant cycle of misinformation about vaccinations.”

Cllr Tom Brabazon (FF) feature in the park in the sense that it was not fenced off,” he told Northside People. “We were concerned naturally about public safety and, in particular, for very young children and vulnerable elderly. “The park really is a wonderful local resource for the entire Donaghmede, Clongriffin, Belmayne and the surrounding rapidly developing North Fringe area. “In recent times I have noticed that the life buoys have been disappearing off the stands at the lake feature. Sometimes they would be removed and thrown into the water and at other times they would simply vanish.” Cllr Brabzon said while the cost of the replacement may not be significant there has been times that due to the theft/removal of the life buoys there would have been no cover in the event of an incident despite the council’s parks department’s very best efforts. “Whether it is people taking alcohol or drugs or plainly stupid people this callous disregard to life and safety must stop,” he added.

Opposition to sewage plant Quit now and save... Stocking products from leading and reputable manufacturers for the beginner to the experienced Vaper.

A LOCAL public representative has called for a planned sewage treatment plant on the Northside to be halted. The deadline passed on August 17 for submissions to be made to An Bord Pleanala for a regional wastewater treatment plant to be built in Clonshaugh. Senator Catherine Noone, one of Fine Gael’s candidates in the

next general election in the Dublin Bay North constituency, said the proposed plant has caused significant concern in the area due to a number of important factors that should be addressed before the development progresses. “The location proposed for the plant has the potential to be used for a host of other amenities, not least, housing for the

rapidly growing local population,” she said. “The chosen site has also raised significant concerns as to potential environmental damage.” Dublin Bay North TD Sean Haughey (FF) has also expressed strong opposition to the proposed development. “Clonshaugh and District is a densely populated and rapidly growing area,” he said.

“The provision of smaller treatment plants is more sustainable and in keeping with environmental principles generally.” Deputy Haughey added: “These plans are not the solution to effective water treatment and an oral hearing must be provided so that residents’ concerns can be dealt with in public.” Irish Water insisted that the new facility “will be

Local woman nominates Beaumont nurse for award FORMER patients of Beaumont Hospital were given the opportunity last week to pass on thanks to members of staff whom they believe went the extra mile in helping them regain their health and wellbeing. Each patient talked briefly about the circumstances that brought them to the hospital and presented an ‘Honour Your Heroes’ award to the person or team of their choice. Emma Cassidy, from Raheny, nominated Louise Costigan, Breast Care Nurse, for an award. In June 2017, Science and PE teacher Emma (30) went to see her GP. She had been feeling very tired with very low energy and had a general feeling that something was not right. Her GP gave her a B12 injection to help her energy levels which made little impact and

on a subsequent visit, her blood samples were taken but these came back normal. Emma had been treated for skin cancer in 2015 and as a precautionary measure, her GP sent her to the Emergency Department in Beaumont Hospital. “Doctors in the hospital found a lump in my right breast within 20 seconds,” she recalls. Emma was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer, an aggressive form of the disease, and within a week was undergoing surgery to have a double mastectomy. Emma felt “punched in the face”. “It didn’t seem real,” she says. “I never thought that at 30-years-of-age I’d be facing something like this. I tried to absorb as much information as I could and decided to approach my treatment with a positive attitude. That was massively important for

Throughout the course of her treatment she bravely documented her fight with the disease on her Instagram page and has been very vocal about her battle against cancer. Emma named Louise Costigan as her hero. “Louise was one of the first people that I met when I was diagnosed,” says Emma. “She was so calming and made me feel like everything was going to be ok. Louise was always at the end of the phone for me and knowing that I had her support was amazing and made my journey so much easier. “She has definitely made a lasting impression and I will forever be grateful for all of the things that she has done for me.” Breast Care Nurse Louise Costigan pictured being honoured by Emma Cassidy at Paddy Delaney, the Beaumont Hospital ‘Honour Your Heroes’ awards.

Biking brothers are on the road to major success TWO Northside brothers, not even out of primary school, are well on the road to carving out successful careers in the sport of motor racing. Finnan (9) and Max (8) Wherity, from Balbriggan, continue to catch the eye with some fantastic performances at home and in the UK. The boys, only 18 months apart in age, race in the biggest motorcycle championship in the country, the Mini Motor Cycling Racing Club of Ireland (MMRCI). This year for the first time they also competed in the Cool Fab-Racing British Minibikes Championship. Finnan recently wrapped up first place in the MMRCI Championship while Max is currently second, but will have a battle at the last rounds at Whiteriver Park, Collon, as there are only a few points between the leaders. Finnan won one of his races in the UK and came third in the Cool FabRacing British Minibikes Championship overall. Remarkably, these incredibly skilled boys,

who moved to bigger bikes this year, are sometimes racing against 13-year-olds. The boys’ proud mum, Jane, said: “From an early age, my boys shared their Dad Shane’s obsession with bikes, playing with toy ones and watching the bikes on TV. “Shane didn’t need any more convincing, and purchased a Honda CRF 50. The lads just took to it. Max was three years-ofage riding this bike in our uncle’s field. Silage cutting was the most anticipated time, as it meant two weeks riding around in 20 acres. “Shane could see there was something special in their ability. Max was very young, but Finnan had a style and a smoothness that stood out even then.” When Jane and her husband heard about the Irish Championship and that there was a race close to their home at Whiteriver, they brought the boys along and knew immediately this was the sport for them. “We have also just started competing in the UK,” said Jane. “The field of riders and

second, so working on the bike is just as important as the rider.” Jane said the Dads also love it. “After racing the kids play together, similar to a camping holiday, and the parents sit around fires,

Film Review 

Searching is a good find for movie-goers IT’S becoming increasingly difficult these days to escape from our computers and mobile phones, even at the movies. And a new genre of technologically based films isn’t helping. ‘Searching’ tells the story of single father David Kim (played by John Cho) whose young daughter Margo suddenly goes missing. Even though a detective (Debra Messing) is assigned to the case, little progress is made and Kim decides to do some investigation of his own, turning to the one place where his daughter’s secrets are kept - online. The thought of watching someone on a big screen moving a mouse around, clicking links and opening new tabs doesn’t sound that appealing, and it’s certainly not cinematic, but actually it works really well. The story is very tight and well told and the tension keeps building so you’re kept wondering who did what and why, as more information is gradually uncovered and revealed. We award ‘Searching’ a review score of 3.5 stars. A very different experience also out this week is the first major film we can remember to tackle the great Irish famine. Amazing to think that such accomplished directors as Jim Sheridan and Neil Jordan never went near this incredibly rich subject, but Lance Daly bravely has, and he’s very much pulled it off with ‘Black 47’. With a great cast including Hugo Weaving, Jim Broadbent, Sarah Greene and Stephen Rea, Daly focuses on one man’s journey of revenge against the evil English occupiers of the day. James Frecheville stars in the lead role of Martin Feeney who returns home from war to find his family

evicted, starved and hanged. In what amounts to an Irish cowboy film, Feeney sets out on his horse to pick off the baddies one by one. He doesn’t say too much in the process, but the actor’s face conveys a level of threat that suggests this is a man you don’t want to mess with. Although there are technical issues with this movie, most notably the score which sounds like it’s from a different film at times, the story and performances are first class and justify an award of 4 satisfying stars.

Fibromyalgia and Free courses to help locals quit smoking OsteOpathy

Fibromyalgia is a chronic complaint causing widespread pain and sensitivity to muscles and soft tissues.The initial stages of the disease often go unnoticed, as the patient may only suffer from minimal fatigue,soreness, gastrointestinal complaints or insomnia. As the disease progresses,the symptoms become more severe and widespread, effecting sleep, digestion, bowel movements, joint stiffness and more. This occurs because the nervous system is in a state of constant irritation. Irritation to the nervous system can be caused by old injuries or traumas,stress, drug use or abuse, environmental factors or anything that overloads the bodies defences. The Classical Osteopathic approach to fibromyalgia begins with treating the old injuries in a manor which works in harmony with the body therefore taking stress off the nervous system. The more irritation that can be removed from the body, the more the nervous system can normalise. This in turn allows the body to begin to heal itself. Blood flow and drainage are improved increasing oxygen levels and ridding the system of toxins.In the treatment of fibromyalgia,relaxation and Craniosacral techniques may be used, tailored to the individual needs of the patient.This means the treatment is gentle and relaxing.As Fibromyalgia is a chronic disease treatment is ongoing and may require the intervention of other health care professionals.

OsteOpath: Tony o’Brien

THE Irish Cancer Society has launched the latest round of its free smoking cessation programme, which supports local women to join forces and quit together. Women from Kilbarrack are invited to sign up for the We Can Quit course

which will commence on September 19 at KLEAR Adult Education Centre, Swansnest Road. The programme is open to all female smokers living who are over the age of 18 years and are interested in quitting smoking. There will also be courses

They will also be offered free Nicotine Replacement Therapy (NRT). Research has shown that smokers who use a combination of group support and two NRT products for a 12-week period are four times more likely to quit and stay smoke-free for good. Joanne Vance, Community Programmes Manager at the Irish Cancer Society, said We Can Quit has gone from strength to strength since it began in 2013. “Over the last six years, 300 women from Dublin have completed the 12-week course,” said Ms Vance. “More importantly, many of them have managed to successfully quit smoking

for good as a result of the initiative so we know that the programme works. “Giving up smoking is extremely difficult and a huge challenge for people, but We Can Quit offers women the support and encouragement to get through it. Through the programme, they can access a friendly network of like-minded women and know that they have the full support of their community and the Irish Cancer Society behind them.” For more information or to sign up for your free place, contact Caitriona Reynolds on 01-2316669/ or register at www.cancer. ie/we-can-quit

Women’s sporting successes praised WOMEN have achieved major sporting successes recently but the push for greater gender representation in Irish sport is not over. That’s according to Northside councillor Deirdre Heney (FF) who was speaking following a major sporting event held in the local community. Cllr Heney presented trophies to the winners at the Irish International Women’s Snooker Open in Harmonstown.   “I was so pleased to have the opportunity to see first-hand the calibre of talent there is in women’s snooker,” she said.  “All those involved in the Republic of Ireland Ladies Snooker Association hosting the tournament in Harmonstown are to be congratulated for their efforts and achievements in the sport to date. “There are still too many talented women and young girls across

Dublin and elsewhere in the country that have difficulty accessing equality of opportunity in sport or indeed excelling in sport. “I am calling on Minister Shane Ross to ensure that every effort is made to allocate equal proportions of funding across Irish sport irrespective of gender.” Cllr Heney, who represents the Clontarf Local Electoral Area on Dublin City Council, said the media also have a significant role to play in ensuring that a strong level of coverage is given to women’s sport and maintained all year round. “There are huge numbers of women involved in sport in Dublin be it with the GAA, local tennis, boxing or football club but we can definitely boost female representation and achieve a greater balance overall,” she added.

Entertainment Surrey’s You Me at Six to play debut album at Academy show 12


BRITISH quintet You Me at Six will be playing their debut album ‘Take Off Your Colours’ in its entirety as part of a 10th anniversary show at The Academy on Sunday, November 18. They are currently putting the finishing touches to their new album ‘VI’, which is due out October 5 on Underdog Records. A record that switches moods and styles with breathless confidence, from devastatingly defiant rock to joyously uplifting pop, it all but drips with melodies and moods. It’s the kind of record a band makes when they are in love with all the possibilities of music. VI is not what you might expect a You Me At Six album to sound like. “We’ve always been a band that straddles styles,” says singer Josh Franceschi. “We’ve always

had that pop sensibility, but we’ve tried not to pigeonhole ourselves – that’s come from other people.” VI was about opening that breach, and letting the full scope of their creativity flood through. “Our fans have grown up with us and they want to hear the music we like,” Franceschi adds. “You have to make music for yourself because without authenticity people are going to smell the bullshit. “None of us are going into this with any fear, because we’ve made something we can stand behind.” A mix of post-hardcore, melodic pop-punk, and aggressive alt-rock, the British quintet rose to mainstream popularity with their 2008 debut ‘Take Off Your Colours’, followed by their breakout album ‘Hold Me Down’.

The You Me at Six boys will be playing tracks from the album ‘Take off Your Colours’.

AMERICAN rap icon and legend Coolio is coming to Ireland later this year for five intimate shows, including one at The Bowery, Dublin on October 12. Coolio took over the world rap scene in the 1990s through the immense success of ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’, which won a Grammy in 1996 for Best Rap Performance. It sold over six million copies and was Billboard Magazine’s number one single in 1995. Gangsta’s Paradise would also be featured on the ‘Dangerous Minds’ soundtrack and movie. Coolio's music has also been featured in several major motion pictures including: ‘Space Jam’, ‘Clueless’, ‘The Big Payback’,‘Panther’, ‘New Jersey Drive’, ‘The Jerk Boys’, ‘Eddie’ and ‘Half

Baked’ as well as many others. He also composed the theme song for the popular TV series ‘Kenan and Kel’ on Nickelodeon. Coolio has won an American Music Award, three MTV awards, two Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards and a World Music Award. He has received six Grammy nominations (1994, 1995 and 1996), two Billboard Music Awards (1994 and 1996), two ASCAP awards (1996, 1997), four American Online awards (1996) and was the Playboy Music Poll winner in 1997. In 2016, Coolio won a Vintage Soundtrack Song of 1995 award for ‘Gangsta’s Paradise’ from ‘Dangerous Minds’ via the Vintage Film Awards. He recorded two singles in 1987, entitled ‘Watcha Gonna Do’ and ‘You're Gonna Miss Me’.

Education Making school lunches that are nutritious and delicious 18

GOOD nutrition is not only essential for your child’s growth and development. It’s also important in keeping them adequately fuelled for the long school day ahead. Whether starting school for the first time, progressing from primary to secondary school or returning to a familiar routine; this transition is a busy time for kids, teens and parents alike. Back-to-school marks a fresh beginning and structure for the next 9-10 months of your family’s year, so take this time as an opportunity to encourage healthy lifestyle routines and habits right from the get-go. Louise Reynolds, a dietician with the Irish Nutrition Dietetic Institute (INDI) says a school lunch is one of


your child’s three meals a day. “So it’s important to ensure they are getting a nutritionally balanced lunch and snacks,” she added. “Typically, a packed school lunch should contain all of the major food groups.” Examples of food grouping includes: 1. One portion of starchy carbohydrate. For example, wholegrain bread, pittas or wraps, brown rice/pasta. 2. One portion of protein food (e.g. chicken, fish, egg, pulses) 3. One portion of dairy (e.g. yogurt, cheese or milk) 4. One or more portions of vegetable (e.g. carrot sticks, peppers, sweetcorn, lettuce, onion) 5. One or more portions of fruit (e.g. apple, orange, banana,

pear, kiwi) 6. A drink of water and/ or milk Food Writer and mum of three young children, Lilly Higgins says being prepared, organized and preparing in advance will not only save time, but it will also reduce the chances of opting for last minute ready-made lunches or convenience foods which can be very high in sugars, fats and salt. “I love to get my kids involved, learning about food and nutrition are important life skills and should be encouraged from an early age,” she adds. “Children are more likely to be interested in their lunches if they have helped to choose and prepare them, so don’t be afraid to let them experiment!” The Department of Health’s Healthy Eating Guidelines recommend three servings from the ‘milk, yogurt and cheese’ food group each day as part of a healthy, balanced diet. Between the ages of 9-18 years, five servings per day are recommended due to the increased calcium requirements at this life stage. Examples of one

serving include a 200ml glass of milk, 125g yogurt and 25g (matchbox size piece) cheddar cheese. Calcium is recognised for its important role in normal bone growth and development, with childhood and the adolescent years particularly important for forming healthy bones. However, you may not realise that there is more to milk and dairy than calcium, with one glass of milk also providing us with protein, potassium, phosphorus, iodine, vitamin B2 and vitamin B12 - each playing a variety of important roles for our health. The National Dairy Council is now taking registrations for the School Milk Scheme for the 2018/2019 school year. Drinking a carton of School Milk each day is a convenient and affordable way to help children meet their calcium needs. The National Dairy Council supports schools by supplying a free fridge to store School Milk, ensuring that this fresh drink is enjoyed at its best at all times.

Lilly’s Lunchbox ideas 1. Strawberry milk or banana smoothie. Just blend fruit with milk and some natural yogurt together. If the fruit is a bit sour add a teaspoon of honey. Freeze the smoothie overnight and place it in the lunchbox. It will have defrosted by lunchtime. 2. Cheese and fruit kebabs - cocktail sticks with grapes, pineapple, cubes of cheddar, cherry tomatoes 3. Toasted almonds with cubes of cheese (toast almonds with a little olive oil, sea salt & finely chopped rosemary) 4. Pizza scrolls or Mini pizzas. Roll wholemeal pizza dough, spread with tomato sauce and some chopped vegetables, top with grated cheese - roll up like a Swiss roll. Slice into individual scrolls and bake these in the oven on a baking tray or do not roll up and just make small mini pizza. These can be served cold in the lunchbox 5. Feta and vegetable muffins - a great sandwich alternative. Recipe available on 6. Mix cream cheese with cinnamon to flavour and spread on mini bagels with sultanas 7. Mini quiches in muffin tins with cheese, salmon or vegetables 8. Mini mozzarella balls with cherry tomatoes and basil leaves 9. Savoury yogurt dips: stir through some tahini and lemon juice, or a little dill and garlic with cucumber to make a simple tzatziki or add some grated beetroot and a pinch of cumin for a bright pink dip for vegetables. Serve with vegetable crudités in the lunchbox. Peppers, celery and carrots all work well. 10. Grated cheddar, mayonnaise, tuna and sweetcorn in a wholemeal pitta bread Pitta bread sambos can be a healthy option.

Education 19 Primary pupils suffering anxiety NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST 29.08.18

NEARLY one in six (17 percent) of pupils in Dublin primary schools experience general anxiety according to parents who took part in research published recently by Super Troopers with Laya Healthcare. The new research among parents of school children aged 5-12 also found that one in four (24 percent) were experiencing ‘low moods’. The findings also show that 13 percent of Dublin school kids experience bullying at school compared to four percent in other parts of Leinster. A key finding among the 500 parents who took part in the research was the significant amount of time young children are spending watching TV or playing games on screens. According to parents, half (54 per cent) of all Dublin primary school children own their own tablet and one in five (20 percent) have their own mobile phone. When time on all devices is added up, children under 12 years are spending twice as much time viewing screens than playing outside: 23 hours screen time Vs 11 hours a week outside. Now in its fourth year, Super Troopers is Ireland’s biggest ‘health homework’ programme and it has grown to almost half of all Irish primary schools (1,510 participating schools) with 41 percent of primary schools in Dublin taking part in the free initiative this year. Mindfulness is a key part of the Super Troopers programme, with research revealing huge support among parents90 per cent of Dublin parents would welcome mindfulness exercises being introduced as a routine part of the school day. Other key research findings by Super Troopers with Laya Healthcare include: • 78 per cent of Dublin parents think health homework should be made a compulsory part of the primary school curriculum, giving physical and emotional health the same priority as regular schoolwork like

English and Maths. • Despite lots of public debate around childhood obesity, one in three (34 percent) children at primary school level are not getting the recommended 60 minutes of moderate/ vigorous physical activity each day • Anxiety among primary school children peaks in fifth class with more than one in three (37 percent) experiencing anxiety and low moods (33 percent). This coincides with scores of self-esteem with those in third and fifth classes experiencing the lowest self-esteem (20 percent and 18 percent respectively) • Dublin parents (96 percent) think the Government should give more money to primary schools to improve PE and encourage healthy lifestyles among families • During the week, children spend 162 minutes (2.7 hours) a day – the equivalent of two full

school days – watching screens. This jumps to 288 minutes (4.8 hours) at the weekend Lorraine Walsh, Director of Customer Experience and Marketing at Laya Healthcare, says instilling healthier habits at a young age is the main aim of Super Troopers. “The research findings underline the importance of looking after both the physical and emotional needs of our children,” she added. “As a mum myself, I know that by embedding healthy attitudes towards mindfulness, nutrition and physical activity among families, we will help combat childhood obesity and ensure a healthier adult population in the future.” Wellness expert Ann-Marie Ireland, who authored the mindfulness exercises used in Super Troopers, says that mindfulness can successfully address anxiety and behavioural issues.

Children could benefit from learning mindfullness. “Spending just a few minutes each day on simple mindfulness exercises can positively transform children, allowing them space and time to be calm, quiet and to be ‘present in the moment’,” she continued. “Families and schools have really embraced

Education Tigers team up with charity 20


A NORTHSIDE single mum has teamed up with a not-for-profit enterprise that delivers affordable, quality childcare to young disadvantaged parents wishing to pursue third-level education. Karen Clince from Castleknock is owner and managing director of Tigers Childcare and she’s joined forces with Empower the Family, which aims to break the poverty and homeless cycle for lone young parents. Empower the Family is the brainchild of Deborah Somorin, who was homeless at 13, pregnant at 14 and a single mum at 15. Despite many obstacles, Deborah was determined to finish her education to achieve her career goals and provide for her son. She completed an Accounting and Finance degree in DCU in 2014 with the help of Focus Ireland and went on to complete a Masters in Accounting in 2015, which

helped earn her a place at PwC where she is now a Senior Associate. Deborah now wants to give back and help others achieve what she has achieved and is delighted to partner with Tigers Childcare. “Childcare is one of the biggest barriers to lone parents progressing to third level education, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds,” she said. “With Tigers Childcare on board we can help eliminate this and give young student parents the support to pursue their education and provide a better life for their children.” Deborah’s charity is one close to Tigers Childcare MD, Karen who set up Ireland’s first after-school childcare facility in Glasnevin back in 2003. A single mother of two she credits her successful 18-year career in childcare to two key influences - education and her mother. “Even though I had my

like she had to do in the early ‘90s as a single mum returning from Australia with three young children starting life from scratch. “She held down two jobs while taking courses in the evenings and eventually progressed to regional

bank manager with Irish Nationwide. She is a huge inspiration and a great example of what hard work and resilience can achieve.” Karen’s mother now works as Tigers Childcare’s financial

The company also recently announced its expansion into the UK with a new 7,000 sq ft facility in London’s Elephant and Castle set to open later this year. Speaking of how Empower the Family aligns with Tigers Childcare’s ethos, Karen says: “From the start Tigers Childcare has encouraged inclusiveness, with all children treated equally regardless of background and all government-aided programmes accepted in each of our 14 centres. “Working with Empower the Family we are delighted to be able to give some of the most disadvantaged people in society a chance to realise their full potential, unhindered by social, emotional or financial constraints. “By supporting these parents, not only do we have a positive impact on their lives we also help change their children’s lives to achieve better outcomes for them well into the future.” Tigers Childcare provides a programme of early years, pre-school and after-school childcare services. It has 148 staff and catering for over 2,000 children.

Music school Teachers take hands-on hits all the approach at science workshop THE national workshop for educators, now in its 12th year and hosted by Synthesis and Solid State Pharmaceutical Centre (SSPC), a Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) funded centre and the Dept. of Chemical Sciences, was held in the University of Limerick (UL) this summer. The workshop was attended by many Dublin educators including Claire

Hickeyof Scoil Chaitriona, Glasnevin. It included explosions and some of the coolest reactions in chemistry involving a chemical demonstration show, simple physics demonstrations, Spectroscopy in a Suitcase by Royal Society of Chemistry, and safety aspects and the use of ICT in demonstration. SSPC’s Education and

Public Engagement Officer, Dr Martin McHugh, explained what it was all about. “The workshop offers all participants the opportunity to engage with confidence in experiments they can integrate into everyday science chapters,” he said. “The three days are action packed with guest presenters and there is a huge emphasis on tuition,

design, questioning and inquiry-based learning. “It’s developed in such a way that it’s hands-on, fun and really engaging for all involved.” The three-day residential workshop offered exemplary professional development for secondary school science teachers through joint sponsorship by the SSPC, BioPharmaChem Ireland, the Faculty of Science and Engineering, and the Department of Chemical Sciences at UL. In addition, the workshop is supported by both the Institute of Physics in Ireland and the Royal Society of Chemistry. Supporting teachers’ development is vital for the enhancement of the Irish education system, to help educators capitalise on the importance of science in everyday life. Creating an active learning environment by integrating demonstrations in the classroom helps expand engagement in learning

and develop a repertoire of demonstrations linked to the physical sciences. The SSPC Education and Public Engagement (EPE) programme funded by Science Foundation Ireland plays a key role in communicating the importance and value of science to the wider society in Ireland. The SSPC’s EPE programmes incorporate customised, context-based activities for each stage of the Irish primary and post-primary educational systems. Additional programmes designed for third/fourth level students, industry, and the general public also play a role in the EPE strategy to promote engagement with SSPC’s research, as well as to create a dialogue among all participants about Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine (STEMM), particularly in the area of chemistry and pharmaceutical manufacturing.

Top marks for David

NORTHSIDE resident David Gordon has secured one of the top marks in the country in the Diploma for Accounting Technicians programme this year. Accounting Technicians Ireland’s qualification is recognised as the fastest pathway to a professional accounting career. David (48), who lives in Clare Village, Clare Hall, opted to study accountancy online when he decided to make a career change after spending 15 years in mobile phone retail management. A native of Swinford in Mayo, he found the two-year online course choice less daunting than the prospect of spending four years studying for a degree. "I love the way the course is set up, in that you get qualifications from the getgo for every year, rather than waiting until the end of the course," he said. "I was working in Coolock so the thought of finishing work and travelling into town for the part-time course just didn't float my boat.

"The online course means you have to be very selfmotivated to keep on top of everything but the support I received from tutors was second to none." The Accounting Technicians Ireland qualification is a passport to a rewarding career in accountancy or business. With flexible courses nationwide, you can obtain this professional qualification in as little as two years. ATI’s qualifications, offered full or part-time in over 70 colleges throughout the island, are open to school and college leavers, mature students and the countless number of people who have been working in industry or small practice firms for years but have no formal training. The accounting qualification provides access to employment opportunities for a broad range of accounting and finance roles and will enable students to further progress to senior financial management posts. Accounting Technicians are qualified accounting

David Gordon who has secured one of the top marks in the country in the Diploma for Accounting Technicians programme this year. professionals that work at all levels of finance throughout the private and public sector, industry and commerce and in accountancy practices. Accounting Technicians can perform a wide range of finance roles, from accounts staff to financial controller and beyond. For instance, they can do financial accounting and budgeting, costing and credit control, payroll administration and tax returns. More experienced Accounting Technicians may often perform senior managerial tasks and audits. The two-year Diploma for Accounting Technicians programme is also the first step to a full qualification in accountancy. “This is a pan-sectoral qualification which meets the needs of industry, practice and the public sector, and graduates enjoy exemptions from the full range of professional accountancy bodies including Chartered Accountants Ireland, ACCA, CPA, CIMA, IIPA as well as Higher Education third level accounting programmes,” said Gillian Doherty, ATI’s Chief Operations Officer. “A recent analysis of the labour market by the National Skills Bulletin confirmed a continuing high demand for accounting technician skills. “Many businesses finance the programme for potential Accounting Technicians – recognising the benefits of having a qualified technician run the financial side of the business while the owner develops the entrepreneurial end.”




Europe’s brightest young minds heading to Ireland

IRELAND is set to welcome some of Europe’s brightest young minds when the country plays host to the 30th EU Contest for Young Scientists (EUCYS). Taking place in the RDS from September 14-19, the contest will see 139 students from 38 different countries showcasing 90 projects, in a bid to be crowned EU Young Scientist of the Year. The contest will be open to the public in the RDS from Saturday September 15 to Monday September 17, when visitors can see for themselves the fantastic projects on display. They will also be able to take in performances from the special acts lined-up including psychologist James Soper and his ‘Your beautiful biased brain’ show; and Sue McGrath aka ‘Scientific Sue’, who will bring spectators on a journey of science and inspiration and introduce audiences to her firebreathing dragons.

Tickets can be downloaded now for free at tickets. The EUCYS participants have all previously won first prizes in their home country’s national science competition, the equivalent to the BT Young Scientist & Technology Exhibition in Ireland. Their projects will cover a broad spectrum of scientific areas, including biology, physics, chemistry, computing, social sciences, environment, mathematics, materials, engineering and medicine. Simon Meehan, who was awarded the BT Young Scientist & Technologist of the Year title at the BTYSTE in January, will represent Ireland at the EUCYS. The top prizes for the overall winners is €7,000 with other prizes including a trip to CERN in Switzerland and the European Space Agency. Ireland has traditionally

performed well at the EUCYS having taken home one of the top prizes an astounding 14 times in 28 years. European Commissioner for Research, Science and Innovation, Carlos Moedas said the European Commission was delighted to sponsor the EU Young Scientist Competition “Founded by Jacques Delors in 1989, the competition brings together the best and brightest young minds from across the EU and further afield,” he continued. “Ireland is a fantastic hub for STEM innovation and we are really excited to be hosting the event there this year. The competition is a perfect showcase of the ideals of the European Union as it promotes collaboration and innovation across borders." Previous winner Abdusalem Abubakar (Ireland) won first prize at EUCYS in 2007 and

the code breaker, whose project exposed failings in RSA encryption using continued fractions, has gone on to a distinguished career at the tech company, Ericssons. Likewise, Lina Tomasella (Italy) who won in 1989 with her Biology project ‘Toxicity of colour dyes used as tracers’. Lina is now a highly respected researcher at the National Institute for Astrophysics, Padova and will be one of the judges at EUCYS2018.

Mari Cahalane, Head of EUCYS 2018, said: “We were delighted to announce that this year the EUCYS will be held in Dublin, Ireland. “Now in its 30th year, the competition has strong ties to Ireland, after hosting the event here in 2004 and we are delighted to be back. I am happy to say we will, once again, be showcasing the very best of global young STEM innovation with representatives from 38 countries traveling to

take part in Dublin this September. “Events such as EUCYS help foster a beyond borders appreciation for STEM innovation. The contest allows young people to, not only showcase their projects on an international stage but to also get to know some of the brightest STEM minds across Europe and the world and become part of the next generation of STEM innovators. “We are encouraging

people of all ages who have an interest in science to come along to the contest as having EUCYS on your doorstep, and being able to attend free of charge, is a once in a generation opportunity.” The competition is open to other countries outside of Europe, with nations such as China, Canada, Russia and South Korea also taking part. Tickets are available now, free of charge at

special schools, DEIS schools, co-educational schools, rural, urban, single-sex and Irishlanguage medium schools. Work will begin in September and run through to the end of the school year in 2019. In their application, schools had to explain how their participation would support learning and development in the arts and creativity, their capacity to engage as a school and their plans for ensuring that children and young people play an active role in developing, implementing and evaluating their work as a Creative School. Through the programme, the Arts Council is engaging with children and young people across the country enabling their creativity and linking them in with the arts and creative infrastructure

in their locality and nationally. Michelle Duffy of the Central Remedial Clinic School in Clontarf, which is one of the chosen schools, welcomed the programme. “This programme gives an opportunity for students in our school with a huge variety of needs to participate in and develop new creative experiences which help them express themselves,” she said. “It will also give our staff an opportunity to reflect on and improve the creative activities we provide. We are looking forward to developing new creative ideas.” Dún Laoghaire Educate Together National School, is also taking part in the programme. “As a new school on the cusp of creating our school vision and plan with the energy and

openness of a start-up, we’re in a unique position to embed creativity in the foundation of our school ethos, community and activities, with the pupils at the centre, and in our engagement with the wider community,” said Principal Anne Marie Lillis. Schools selected for the pilot will be provided with a package of support that includes funding and expertise from a Creative Associate to enable them to explore the potential impact of the arts and creativity on school life. With the support of their Creative Associate, schools will develop a Creative School plan and design a unique programme that responds to the needs and priorities of their school. This process will support children and young people to challenge themselves in new ways, to gain in confidence and to take

a more active role in learning. Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton, congratulated the schools selected to participate in this first phase of Creative Schools. “This initiative underlines the importance that arts and creativity can play in our education system, not just as a curriculum subject, but as a vital part of the personal development and creative expression of our children and young people,” he said. “Every child has the ability within them to be creative and through this initiative, and the support and resources of the team of Creative Associates working with teachers and students, they will have the opportunity to explore the world around them and discover a new way of learning.”

Brian Farrell started the company in 2006 at the age of 26, with brother Des joining shortly afterwards. “Des was a great addition as he shared my work ethic,” Brian said. “We started with just four cars, but worked seven days a week, and serviced and valeted all of the vehicles ourselves. Over the past 11-12 years, we have slowly built up our stock and customer base and now hold over 70 cars as well as becoming one of the main independent dealers in the country.” The Airways Motor Company business revolves around sales, with a strong supporting focus on service and warranty. Customising the product offering is one point of differentiation. “We choose to outsource our service work, depending on the make and model of the vehicle,” Brian explained. “I’m lucky to have met and worked with some superb mechanics and we still do business with them today. This ensures our

stock is prepared to the highest standards with the correct diagnostic equipment used for each vehicle, and our warranty work is dealt with quickly and efficiently with as little hassle caused to the customer as possible. “We also offer a free replacement car and a collection service in the locality. Our full cover warranty is dealt with by ourselves, again ensuring everything goes smoothly. Our customer focus, in both sales and warranty, has allowed us to build up a massive amount of repeat business along with a large amount of new business coming from referrals. “These customers are largely from the Swords area but also come from all around the country, having read our reviews online. "Our customers range from first-time drivers looking for a small-engine car, all the way up to a business professional looking for more of a prestige vehicle.”

Pictured at the SIMI annual Motor Industry Awards 2018 are Derek McDermott, Bank of Ireland, Brian Farrell, Independent Sales Operation of the Year – Airways Motor Company and Brian Cooke SIMI. Location offers an edge and Brian says the business’s central location in Swords gives Airways Motor Company a significant strategic advantage. “We have a showroom and lot just off Swords Main Street, which is a fantastic position to be in, with estates such as River Valley and Boroimhe surrounding us giving us excellent passing trade. We also have a holding

facility not far away, allowing us to up our stock numbers and annual turnover year upon year. “We pride ourselves on both the upkeep of the showroom and of the stock, which are valeted, detailed, serviced and advertised to a very high standard,” Brian added. “We spend many hours training our staff to always prepare the cars to the best of their ability and then to showcase them

with excellent photos, video and worded advertisements.” Brian expects that the next couple of years could be difficult in the motor industry. “Businesses need to be aware of not leveraging themselves too much in the run-up to its fruition,” he stated. “But we have been through a recession a year after starting the business so we’ll get through it.”

Rezvani Tank to take part in Cannonball Supercar Event A REZVANI Tank is on route to Ireland to take part in the Cannonball Supercar Event this September 7-9 around Ireland. This custom build machine with its 707bhp Hellcat V8 6.2L Supercharged Engine is one of a kind and the first ever right-hand drive model. It is also the first private Tank in Europe, made even more special as it arrived into the UK after a journey of over 5,400 miles on a special airfreight from the auto manufacturer's plant in California to the new owner in Birmingham UK. Jamie Foxx was reported to have taken delivery of one of the first production samples in Hollywood this year and the militaryinspired Rezvani Tank is one of the most outlandish SUVs currently on the market. Essentially an armoured city car, the extreme SUV features a body-on-frame

design, on-demand fourwheel drive and a best-inclass suspension system. Optional extras include thermal night vision, ballistic armour protection, bulletproof glass, and military grade run-flat tires. The Tank which has now arrived safely in Birmingham will be one of the highlights at the 10th anniversary of Cannonball Ireland, the action-packed supercar spectacle set to roll on September 7 – 9 with over 190,000 people expected to line the streets all around Ireland. Top mark cars including McLaren, Lamborghini, Ferrari, Aston Martin, Porsche, Maserati, Rolls Royce and Bentley will blaze a trail through Dublin, Cavan, Donegal, Mayo, Spanish Point, Blarney, Cork, Kilkenny and Wexford taking in the Wild Atlantic Way, Hidden Heartlands and Ireland’s Ancient East. The start-line for Cannonball 2018 will

be set against the magnificent backdrop of Malahide Castle on Friday September 7 at 10.30am. However, the cars will be on display to fans from the evening of Thursday, September 6 at Malahide Castle. As a friend of Cannonball Ireland, Stephen Kelly took

personal responsibility for the successful and safe movement of the Tank. “As an avid car enthusiast, to be present at the unveiling of this precious cargo as it rolled off the aircraft in the UK was something special to behold. “Due to the complex nature of this special

vehicle, including some military grade extras featuring night vision, smoke screen and offroad extreme package, the exportation and importation was certainly not a straight forward task.” Cannonball has already raised €960,000 for Irish charities.

House & Home Falling in larder love


Neptune’s full height Suffolk larder with doors and shelves removed, hand-painted in charcoal, is priced at €4,160.

ASK anyone what they would wish for in their kitchen and you can bet your bottom dollar that a larder is going to be in their top three most sought after fixtures. These big, beautiful storage solutions, which started out life in the Victorian era, are fast becoming the stylish storage option for busy homes. And it is easy to see why more and more people are falling in larder love. Their Tardis-like depth is one of their particular attractions. According to designers at leading interiors house Neptune, the best larders are those that go back and

back – so much so it feels like you can almost climb in. Plus having a space where all your kitchen

supplies and condiments are in one place makes them really useful. Larders which have storage racks on the inside

of the cabinet doors are brilliant at allowing you to group like-things together. You can put all your spices on them so you

have everything close at hand when you are cooking. Or you could turn one of the racks into a breakfast

Brighten up the mantle EVEN if you never actually get to light a real fire, the fireplace is probably the centrepiece of your home and the mantle is an ideal place to show off small collections and family treasures. It is elevated and safe from little hands that may want to touch and explore everything. Many small decorative objects may get lost in the decorating if they are scattered throughout the home. But they can have a wonderful impact when grouped together on the fireplace mantle. A display or collection will be very dramatic if a large painting, picture, mirror or wall hanging is hung above the mantle and behind the decorations. Using a pair of dominant objects if often effective and will provide a balanced look to the decorated mantle. Porcelains, figurines, vase with flowers or twigs, picture frames, candles, books, plants, decorative boxes, small candlestick lamps (non-electric), your personal collections all

make perfect decorative objects for decorating a mantle. Remember to elevate small objects, such as placing a small figurine on top of books for interesting height variations. Today’s popular decorating styles allow for creativity and choice when decorating the fireplace mantle. Eclectic decorating offers opportunities to decorate with an informal mix of

decorative items, which can be displayed many different ways. A traditional interior will look better with a formal balanced arrangement. A contemporary decor should keep the mantle simple with just a few items of importance. Pull out your treasures and add some items for height and interest that complements your colour scheme and style. Before you know you’ll have a beautiful fireplace mantle.

Put safety first to avoid ladder accidents

Learn to use that ladder safely





SPECIAL OFFER Door and frame supplied and fitted €250

EVERY year dozens of DIY enthusiasts find themselves in hospital after falling off a ladder. In the enthusiasm of completing a job, safety is sometimes overlooked but rushing the work could end up being a painful and costly experience. If you’re tackling any work than involves using a ladder you simply must put safety first. More accidents are caused by using ladders unwisely than as a result of faulty equipment. Erect the ladder safely before you begin climbing and move it when the

work is out of reach never lean out to the side or you'll lose your balance. If the ground is soft, spread the weight by placing a wide board under the feet of the ladder. Then screw a batten across the board to wedge the ladder in place. On hard ground, make sure the ladder has antislip feet and that you lay a sandbag at the base. Secure the stiles near the base with rope tied to timber stakes driven into the ground at each side and just behind the ladder. When extending a

will be out of reach. Don't lean sideways from a ladder, you should always keep both feet on the rungs and your waist should be centred between the stiles. Most ladders should only be used in a vertical position, therefore you should not form a horizontal walkway with one. Before climbing the ladder your shoes should be wiped clean to ensure no mud is left on which might cause you to slip. Using a ladder properly is an essential skill of any DIY enthusiast. Make sure you learn the ropes before

To use a ladder around windows, anchor the ladder near the top by tying it to a heavy piece of timber batten which spans the window by at least a foot on either side and pad the ends of the batten to protect the wall. Never climb higher than four rungs from the top of the ladder or you will not be able to balance properly and handholds

The 99th annual Dublin City Liffey Swim takes place at 1.30pm on Saturday September 1 at Rory O’ More Bridge, Sráid Watling. The event is unique in that Dublin is the only capital country in Europe to have a swimming race through the middle of the city. It’s the highlight of the open sea swimming season and in particular for the native Dubliners there is something special about being able to swim down the Liffey. This also provides a great spectacle for the public who line the quays, boardwalks and bridges along the mile and a quarter course to catch a glimpse of this unique event.

We take a look back at extracts from old newspapers to see what was in the news this month in years gone by

The Claremont Hotel, Howth, had spectacular views of Ireland’s Eye and a fine private beach at Claremont Strand. It was a popular hotel and in 1932 full board was 15 shillings a day (equivalent to 75 pence today) or 84 shillings (£4.20) a week. Unfortunately, after several owners it became unprofitable and today there are luxury apartments on the site. PHOTO AND CAPTION FROM ‘IMAGES OF IRELAND (NORTH DUBLIN)’ BY DEREK STANLEY.
