eMbeRs of a northside sea scouts’ group have been left devastated after one of their key sailing boats was destroyed last week in a suspected arson attack. The BP18 ‘Sandy Cove’, which was built in the 1970s, was reduced to ash when it was burnt out beside the dinghy pen of Malahide Yacht Club on the Broadmeadow Estuary last Wednesday, January 11. The boat was one of two BP18 craft sailed by the group and is the standard sea scout boat of Scouting Ireland. She was the 12th BP18 built and is one of a fleet of about 30 vessels operated by sea scouts around the country. The boat was beside a 40-foot container which was used as a temporary base for boating activities last summer, while the Scout Den on St James’s Terrace was being refurbished. continued on page 2

Boat destroyed in suspected arson attack Continued from page 1 Luckily the container had been emptied of its equipment back to the scout den before Christmas or the loss could have been much worse. The fire was brought under control and extinguished by Dublin Fire Brigade.

Jordan Killen, a member of Malahide Sea Scouts, told Northside People: “We are devastated by the loss of one of our longest serving boats which has introduced hundreds of young people to sailing and instilled a spirit of adventure to all who sailed on her. Our scouts will be very sad to see

her go. “The incident happened around 4pm. By the time the fire brigade arrived it was too late as it was completely destroyed and reduced to ash. “The boat was made of fibre glass and to set fire to it, they must have had to use petrol.� Mr Killen said the act of

vandalism has reduced the ability of Malahide Sea Scouts to take part in nautical training. “We have about 600 members at the moment so every boat counts,� he added. Group leader of Malahide Sea Scouts, Colin Lynch said: “The group is devastated by the loss of ‘Sandy Cove’. Our volunteer leaders work very hard to provide this great equipment and experiences to all our young people. “We hope none of our friends and supporters encounter these unscrupulous individuals who would attack their local scout group.� The boat is a total loss and

cannot be repaired. According to the group, it will probably cost in the region of â‚Ź8,000 to â‚Ź10,000 to replace her for the next sailing season. Members and former members of the group were quick to take to social media to condemn the act but also to recall some of the great memories the boat brought back. Leader Dave Clarke posted: “I’ve coxed under 12 years rowing crews to victory in this boat, rowed down the barrow in her on a week-long moving summer camp, sailed in her on multiple lakes around Ireland. A sad end to a great career.â€? Group training officer Stephen O’Reilly posted: “Still have my 1st place trophy from rowing BP18 in annual Sea Scout rowing regatta when I was under 12 years. One of the first awards I ever got in scouting. A sad day.â€? Anyone who may have seen anything unusual around Malahide Yacht Club at Broadmeadow Estuary is asked to contact the gardaĂ­ at Malahide on 01-6664600.

Swimmer honoured after breaking Channel record FINGAL County Council has honoured the achievement of a local woman in setting the fastest ever time by an Irish person for swimming the English Channel. Last August, Rachael Lee, from Malahide, swam from Dover to Calais in nine hours and 40 minutes and beat the previous best time by 11 minutes which had, ironically, been set by her partner Tom Healy. Mayor of Fingal Cllr Darragh Butler made a special presentation to Rachael last week at County Hall, Swords. “Swimming the Channel is one of the great feats in the sport of swimming and Rachael has joined an illustrious group of special men and women,� said the Mayor. “We shouldn’t be too surprised at Rachael’s feat or her impressive time because she has impressive pedigree as a swimmer. Her swimming skills were honed off the High Rock in Malahide and she is also a Swift-Water

Rescue Technican, as part of her day job with Dublin Fire Brigade. Indeed, she was involved in the rescue of a man who fell into the River Liffey just days before her Channel swim.� The Mayor also recalled that Rachael was part of a Dublin Fire Brigade team that completed a two-way relay swim of the Channel in 2008 and has also won the Irish Long Distance Swimming Association’s Women’s Championship as well as the prestigious Lake Windemere Race in Britain and the Liffey Swim here. Chief executive of Fingal County Council, Paul Reid, also congratulated Rachael. “We try to encourage people to be active in sport because we have such a young population in Fingal,� he said. “Sport promotes wellbeing and positive mental health.� and we now have another great model in Rachael Lee.�

Why I support injecting centres

COMMENT: Aodhán Ó Ríordáin

A

S IRELAND commemorated the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Rising, the bodies of two men were found a few dozen metres away from each other in Dublin’s city centre. The body of a 42-year-old man was found in an apartment complex on Foley Street - he had lain undiscovered for several days before the alarm was raised. A man, aged 33, was found dead in the toilets of Connolly Station, with a

syringe found nearby. Both fatalities were the result of overdoses. If you hadn’t heard about these cases it is because they didn’t result in any public outcry. There were no protests, no petitions, no media documentaries. For many in Irish society, these lives don’t seem to matter. But they do matter. Ireland has the third highest overdose rate in Europe and some of our most vulnerable citizens are literally dying on our streets. Society blames the addict for their addiction, but there is no other area of medicine where someone at risk of death is treated with such a judgmental attitude. If we are honest, most of us have heard those sucked into addiction referred to as ‘junkies’ more than once. In fact, we hear it all the time. And for me, it is time for us to reclaim the humanity of this issue and to consign that dehumanising and degrading term to the dustbin of history. The issue of street injecting is not unique to Dublin but other countries have taken a much more progressive approach and they are saving lives. Over 90 Medically Supervised Injecting Centres have been opened across Europe and Australia to combat the

issue of street injecting and have proven to be incredibly successful. No one has ever died in any injecting centre; the issue of drug litter such as syringes on the streets has greatly reduced; and users are much less likely to contract HIV or Hepatitis C from risky and unsafe injecting. In short, the centres save lives. In December 2015, as Minister for the National Drugs Strategy, I succeeded in getting cabinet approval for the introduction of Medically Supervised Injecting Centres to Ireland. The Programme for Government of the current administration commits to continuing with that policy and the Health Committee held its first meetings about the legislation last month. It is envisaged that the legislation will be in place in the spring of this year which will enable the minister to seek applications to open and run Ireland’s first Medically Supervised Injecting Centre this year. For every change in public policy there will of course be questions and concerns. But what I have been struck by since I first raised this proposal in 2015 is the number of people who approach me quietly and tell me how they lost a loved one to a drug overdose. However, the stigma of addiction

▪ Injecting centres can help save lives. PHOTO: BIGSTOCK affects them and their family. They feel judged and feel shame. It is as if they feel they failed. They haven’t failed - we have. And we will continue to fail unless we embrace new thinking in the drugs debate. I would ask anyone who might have misgivings about the opening of such a facility: if your child was to fall into addiction, would you rather they injected in a dedicated centre surrounded by medical professionals, or in a lonely laneway behind a skip or in a public toilet? Because it is in places

like that where most of the bodies are found. The introduction of Medically Supervised Injecting Centres won’t solve Ireland’s drug problem but they are certainly a step in the right direction. They will save the most vulnerable of lives, and help addicts to take the first steps in the road to meaningful recovery.

TD highlights five-year road safety statistics UNACCOMPANIED learner drivers have been involved in more than 150 fatal or serious road traffic collisions over the last five years. The figures, released to Dublin Bay North TD Tommy Broughan (Ind), show there was a total of 156 collisions involving unaccompanied learner drivers during the period 2012 to 2016. Of this total, unaccompanied learner drivers were involved in 42 fatal road traffic collisions. Deputy Broughan sought the information on behalf of Promoting Awareness, Responsibility and Care on our Roads (PARC) as part of the work it has been undertaking in supporting families bereaved by road traffic accidents caused by unaccompanied learner drivers. Deputy Broughan said the current spotlight on road safety and the need to improve it is very welcome.

“Myself and civil society organisations such as PARC have been calling for such focus and prioritisation for some time now,” he said.

“There are many areas of the enforcement of our road traffic legislation that must be scrutinised and improved and the involvement of unaccompanied learner drivers is certainly one such area.”

Pitch perfect as residents give U2 Croker backing Brein McGinn DUBLIN City Councillor Nial Ring (Ind) has welcomed the return of U2 to Croke Park in the summer and says it is much needed positive news for an area of Dublin that has been hampered by recent violence. U2 will be returning to their hometown on July 22 for the first time since 2015 and will be touring around Europe this summer to mark the 30th anniversary of ‘The Joshua Tree’, the album that

drove the group to the top tier of world music. The band has been filling out the venue at Ballybough for decades now, with their first concert at the home of GAA taking place in 1985 during their ‘Unforgettable Fire Tour’. This year will also welcome a date from the Chris Martin-led Coldplay, where some, including the magazine ‘The New Yorker’, have made parallels with the Irish rockers. The band said they are delighted to return home to Dublin and can’t wait to perform every song from the memorable album. Lead singer Bono, who is originally from Finglas, said: “I’m up for it, if our audience is as excited as we are, it’s gonna be a great night. Especially when we play at home, Croke Park, it’s where the album was born 30 years ago.” Cllr Ring said that organisers and the local community have learned valuable lessons from mistakes made in the past, especially from the infamous Garth

▪ Bono is set to thrill the masses at Croke Park again this summer. PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA Brooks saga, with the consultation process between the two now making dealings for concerts much smoother. “Obviously they’ll have to put in a stage and put in work time to get everything sorted, maybe blocking off roads for a couple of

hours here and there, but all that process is now discussed thoroughly before agreement,” he told Northside People. Looking at the big picture, Cllr Ring hailed the good news for the area which has been in the media for the wrong reasons of late and

said the band can expect a proud homecoming. “Overall, the local businesses obviously welcome concerts and I think in context of the negative connotations with the north inner city, like within 100 yards of Croke Park, two of the recent murders

took place, this is very positive,” he added. “We think it is great that they (U2) are coming back to the northside and they can be assured of a great welcome back from not only their fans but also from the local community and businesses.”

FILM REVIEW 

Going crazy for La La Land B Y now the word is out, so is the film, and people are going crazy for La La Land. It just won every category it was nominated for at the Golden Globes, but is it any good?

Written and directed by academy award nominee Damien Chazelle, the movie tells the story of Mia (played by Emma Stone), an aspiring actress, and Sebastian (Ryan Gosling), a dedicated jazz musician, who are struggling to make ends meet in modern day Los Angeles, a city known for crushing hopes and breaking hearts. And with a set-up like that the filmmakers surely have a recipe for success in an industry that loves to pat itself on the back. A guaranteed hit amongst the lovies and darlings of Hollywood or so it might seem. But tasty ingredients don’t always turn into a satisfying meal, it needs a skilled head chef and assistants who blend and mix each element in the correct manner, and cook it for just the right amount of time. The director, Chazelle, is the man behind ‘Whiplash’, so we’re off to a good start there. Emma Stone (‘Birdman’) is such a good actress there are few who can match her and the chemistry she shares with her onscreen partner, Gosling, is unquestionable. In case you are are not aware La La Land is a musical, but the songs aren’t crowbarred in, they naturally occur and are both complementary to the story and wonderfully lyrical at the same time. The film looks great, with rich colours that can only be truly appreciated on a large screen and sets that deliberately try to recreate the atmosphere of the great Hollywood musicals of the past. If the hauntingly beautiful music, romantic settings, terrific performances or heartwarming storyline don’t stir the emotions deep within you, wait for the ending that is so well executed, it will have you clearing your throat or reaching for the kleenex in an effort to keep it together. This is a movie for the senses that fires on all cylinders and which we score a la la lavish, 5 out of 5 stars. ▪ Paul O’Rourke

Stafford’s Funeral Directors win National Q Mark Award

A

t the recent National Q Mark Awards for 2016, Stafford’s Funeral Directors were presented with a National Q Mark Highly Commended Award for Quality Management System 2016. ‘The Q Mark for Quality Management Systems is a business excellence framework that reviews all aspects of an organisation on an annual basis. The Q Mark framework is based on the tried and tested business excellence framework which is used by more than 30,000 organisations throughout Europe.’ Excellence Ireland Quality Association (EIQA) The principals as laid out above by the EIQA were always fundamental in Stafford’s Funeral Home’s business focus and ethos. Stafford’s family firm have worked at the heart of Dublin communities since the 1940s, arranging funerals for bereaved families. As third-generation Managing Director, Jonathan Stafford is deeply committed to continuous improvement in funeral standards - this professional drive is what sparked his interest in the Q Mark for Quality Managements Systems. When Jonathan’s grandfather Tom Stafford began arranging funerals in Dublin in 1953, he instinctively knew that attention to detail was at the core of helping a family to create a meaningful funeral tribute to the departed in the midst of loss and grief. Stafford’s enduring tradition of good service began with that simple philosophy of care. The city was more simplistic back then; the challenges are different now, but the high standards of care remains the same. “This never changes – at Stafford’s – we see it every day – and so we don’t lose sight of what really matters in our job. Families need calm reliability from their Funeral Director. We can’t erase the often unspeakable loss of life endured in a family, but we can deliver what we promise in terms of top quality service.” Group General Manager John Kennedy gives a simple outline of the Q Mark journey. “It’s a great chance to continuously improve our services – a keen-eyed 3rd party perspective (the Q Mark auditors) make an extensive and thorough assessment of our funeral practices, processes and our quality systems. Independent valuation is useful beyond measure to identify ways to operate to highest standards of quality and excellence” Stafford’s were drawn to the rigorous process of obtaining a Q Mark for Quality Management Systems because funeral arrangements in

Dublin now involves more people, more traffic, and more branches of Stafford’s Funeral Homes in key locations throughout the city. All this offers better options for families, including alternative types of funeral choices. And in busy times, the small details still matter. “Take the funeral flowers, for example. The Q Mark process would acknowledge how our drivers at Stafford’s are instilled with good training in how to sensitively handle the flowers on the day of a funeral. For grieving families, flowers are deeply personal - not just objects to be taken in and out of a funeral car – but fragile floral tributes that can carry huge emotional meaning. Stafford’s are deeply aware that delivering the best possible customer service demands more complex solutions on a daily basis – the best of technology for example to ensure seamless communication between the teams. Jonathan explains how the Q Mark involves helpful suggestions but is also a two-wayconversation. ‘The Q Mark auditors appreciate for example how perhaps a bakery in Dublin won’t need a 24-hour-manned switchboard - but how in our Funeral Directors - it’s unthinkable that a distressed relative phones up and has to speak to a machine. At Stafford’s, people will always be connected immediately to another human being.” If death is life’s most rock-hard certainty, Stafford’s believe that the funeral profession itself needs to be full of flexibility and movement. “People need us to be forward-thinking – so that when a family suddenly realise that they need a large gathering space for Reposal, we can immediately put at their disposal our extensive new Reposing Chapels which are inter-changeable to create either spacious or intimate gathering spaces.” Jonathan believes that a good funeral director’s attention to detail should be everywhere – it’s the clean gleam off the coffin wood, the driver’s polished shoes, the pristine appearance of the hearse and limousine fleet. It’s the sensitivity shown by the staff, the gentle tone of a voice, the courtesy shown at all times to the grieving family. From year to year, the suggestions and feedback from the Q Mark process are carried and implemented into the next year. This directly benefits the families in Stafford’s care. “Making the day of the funeral bearable for people, that’s at the forefront – the heart of it all really”.

▪ Tighearnan Noonan, Roisin Liston (Northside Partnership) and Rachel Batty promote LAMH Week.

Local mental health initiative is announced A GROUP of inspiring young people are calling on all Northsiders to start 2017 on a positive note by getting involved in a youth-led initiative that aims promote positive mental health Learning About Mental Health (LÁMH) will take place in the Coolock and Kilbarrack areas throughout January and February. The initiative aims to promote positive mental health and wellbeing in the community through a series of events that will include a seminar on mental health, a wellbeing fun day and smaller events hosted by community groups in their own settings. The series of events will be organised by graduates of Northside Partnership’s Young Community Leaders’ (YCL) programme. Speaking at an event to launch the LÁMH initiative, YCL graduate Rachel Batty described how the idea for LÁMH emerged. “Mental health is a topic that is

very close to our hearts – we have all come into contact with mental health difficulties whether that is personally, in our family or amongst our friends,” she said. “We wanted to organise events that would emphasise the importance of lending a helping hand and creating a community where everyone feels respected, valued and supported, especially when they need it most.” The flagship event for the initiative will be Northside Minds - a community seminar on mental health which takes place on Wednesday, January 18 at Parnell’s GAA Club, Coolock Village from 2pm–5pm. Speakers at the seminar will include Freelance Catalyst Carol Conway on the topic of self-awareness; Karl Tooher, Director of Northside Counselling Service on the area of self-injury; Peter Keohane, Principal of the Donahies Community School, on mental health and education and local youth; and Owen Murray who will speak about living

with bipolar disorder. The event will also feature a panel discussion on ‘Volunteering for your wellbeing’ hosted by Volunteer Ireland acting chief executive Anna Gunning. Following Northside Minds, the group also plans to host a Well-Being Fun day in Kilbarrack on Saturday, February 18. The fun day will celebrate positive living and feature workshops and activities for all the family that will include boxercise, yoga, mindfulness and much more. Other groups hosting their own events as part of the initiative include Darndale Belcamp Village Centre, the Dales Centre and KCCP. Community members interested in finding out more can visit www. northsidepartnership.ie/lamhweek. Bookings for the Northside Minds seminar can be made via https://northsideminds.eventbrite.ie or by contacting Northside Partnership on 01-8320995. Group bookings are also welcome and can be made by contacting Roisin Liston at roisin.liston@nspartnership.ie.

Airport passenger record set PASSENGER numbers at Dublin Airport increased by 11 per cent to a record 27.9 million last year – more than four times the population of the island of Ireland.

▪ Irene Collins, Leo Varadkar, John Kennedy, Jonathan Stafford, Nigel Brothers, Stephen Murphy, Chris Davis, Nevan Stafford.

Last year’s traffic performance exceeded the previous record, which was set in 2015, by more than 2.8 million passengers. The airport experienced significant growth across both its short-haul and long-haul net-

works last year. Short-haul traffic, increased by 11 per cent last year, as almost 24.3 million passengers took short-haul flights to and from Dublin, while long-haul passenger numbers increased by 12 per cent to more than 3.6 million. Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said the airport had a very strong performance in 2016. “We had double digit growth

across all of our largest market segments and welcomed new routes and new airline customers,” said Mr Harrison. “The millions of extra passengers who passed through Dublin Airport in 2016 helped deliver a record year for Irish tourism, Significant additional connectivity at the airport also helps to boost business between Ireland and its trading partners and underpins increased foreign direct investment in Ireland.”

TD calls for constituency to remain unchanged A NORTHSIDE TD has called for DUBLIN Fingal to remain a fiveseat constituency. Darragh O’Brien (FF), one of the five sitting TDs in the constituency, has made a submission in relation to the preparation of the Dail Constituency Boundary commission report, which is due to be completed in the coming months. “As a resident, constituent and TD for the Dublin Fingal constituency, I strongly believe that there should be no geographical change to the constituency,” said Deputy O’Brien. “The constituency follows the historical and natural boundaries of what was the Dublin North Dail constituency and in my view that should remain unchanged.” A new Constituency Commission was established last July following the publication of the preliminary results of Census 2016. Members of the public were invited to make suggestions or proposals to the Commission regarding constituencies. The deadline was last Tuesday, January 10. Deputy O’Brien said that while the population figures as per the

recent Census puts the overall constituency marginally over the average threshold for a fiveseater, it remains within the permitted population/representation variation. “It is therefore hugely important that there are five elected representatives to serve the people living in the large number of distinct towns and villages in Fingal,” he added. “It is the view of all of constituents that I have interacted with on this matter, that Dublin Fingal should remain unaltered both geographically and in terms of seat numbers.” The Constituency Commission must make its report to the chairman of Dáil Eireann no later than three months after the publication of the final results of Census 2016. These results are expected in March. The Dublin Fingal constituency starts in

Balbriggan in the north, incorporates all the old Dublin North constituency, and Swords-Forrest and Kilsallaghan from Dublin West and Balgriffin and Turnapin from Dublin North East. The four other sitting TDs are Clare Daly (ULA), Alan Farrell (FG), Brendan Ryan (Lab) and Louise O’Reilly (SF). ▪ Dublin Fingal TD Darragh O’Brien (FF)

epublican, socialist and one of founders of the Irish Citizen Army James Connolly was born in Edinburgh on 5 June 1868. His parents were Irish emigrants who had left Monaghan for a better life in Scotland. The Cowgate that young Connolly was raised in was more popularly known as ‘Little Ireland’. Decent jobs and housing were scarce and poverty, disease and degradation abounded. At the

▪ The James Connolly memorial in Dublin city centre. tender age of 14, as a means of escaping poverty, Connolly falsified his age and joined the British Army, enlisting in the 1st

Battalion of the King’s Liverpool Regiment in 1882. Initially stationed in Cork and eventually in Dublin it was in

this city that he first met Lillie Reynolds who he later married in Scotland having left the army prematurely as his battalion was being shipped off to India. Over the next few years his interest in socialism developed to the extent that he became one of the leading organisers of the various small socialist parties in Scotland. Finding himself blacklisted by Scottish employers he decided to try his hand at becoming a cobbler. His business acumen was sorely lacking and he wryly commented that he was going to buy a shaving mirror and watch himself slowly starve to death. An appeal for work for Connolly was made and a job offer came from the Dublin Socialist Club, so in 1896 he came back to Ireland with his young family. He immediately disbanded the Dublin Socialist Club and founded instead the Irish Socialist Republican Party which one commentator said had more syllables than members. A little known aspect of Connolly’s life is that he lectured

extensively in the United States in 1902 and in fact emigrated there in 1903. For seven years he was involved with the Labour movement in the US and eventually rose to become the New York organiser for the Industrial Workers of the World who campaigned under the motto: ‘An injury to one is an injury to all’. Returning to Ireland in 1910, a matured Connolly campaigned for the Socialist Party and after a time Jim Larkin appointed him as Ulster Organiser for the Irish Transport and General Workers Union in Belfast. Active during the Lockout of 1913-14, Connolly was one of the founders of the Irish Citizen Army. With the departure of Larkin to the US in 1914 Connolly now found himself in charge of the ITGWU. He was also in command of the Citizen Army and had his own newspaper the Workers’ Republic. Liberty Hall now became, according to the Irish Times, “the centre of social anarchy” in Dublin.

Connolly was sworn into the Irish Republican Brotherhood in January 1916 which ensured that the Labour movement and the ICA would have a central role in the planned Rising. He was appointed Commandant-General of the Dublin Brigade, directing the Army of the Irish Republic from the GPO during Easter Week.

New Year resolutions for your dog Corina Fitzsimons

A

S THIS is our first column of 2017, Happy New Year to you from everybody at Dogs Trust. Most of you will have set New Year’s resolutions for yourself, perhaps to lose a few pounds and get fitter. So why not set a few resolutions for your dog while you are at it? A shocking proportion of dogs are currently overweight; this can shorten their life span, reduce their quality of life and be responsible for the onset of Diabetes, Arthritis and breathing difficulties. It is very hard to resist giving our dogs treats and/or food from the table, especially when you look at those big sad eyes, the facial expression that says ‘I’m SO hungry and you won’t share’ and of course with our

squishier faced companions, the inevitable drooling that accompanies the aforementioned begging. An easy way to help your dog to lose weight without feeling deprived is to change his treats to vegetables, cooked or raw depending on his preference. There are also plenty of dried vegetable treats available now from veterinary practices and pet shops. Another way is to weigh out his daily food allowance and keep some aside for treats, that way they are not eating over the recommended allowance but are still getting ‘treats’ throughout the day. Like humans, an increase in exercise will also help your dog to lose weight and to stay trim and healthy. Maybe consider getting up earlier before you go to work and taking your dog for a walk first thing. Dogs that are walked early in

Petworld

the morning usually relax and snooze for the majority of the day as their wandering needs have been met. It also means when you get home you are free to go about your own business or even bring your dog for a second walk! If your dog has joint problems and too much walking is not good for him/her, maybe look into hydrotherapy (after checking with your vet first). Hydrotherapy is great exercise and because it’s done in the water there is little pressure on your dog’s joints. It will not only tire him out but it also builds up the muscles that support his joints and can often lead to an increase in mobility as this happens. If your dog is overweight and you are struggling with this, having tried the basics above, call into your local veterinary practice as there are plenty of prescription weight loss diets available.

He’s a big, bouncy bundle of love seeking an active home where he will get lots of exercise and an adopter who won’t mind his penchant for rolling in mud. Bane does love showers to remove the mud so cleaning up after his adventures shouldn’t be too difficult. Bane adores his grub, especially chicken and after playing tug he loves nothing more than to cuddle up on the couch and be lavished with attention. You’ll need to be around for most of the day as he doesn’t like to be alone for long so, if you like big, active ‘doggy dogs’, then Bane could be the one for you.

Clúid delivered over 100 Dublin homes last year IN 2016 Clúid housed a further 426 families across Ireland, with 104 Dublin homes delivered in partnership with Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, Dublin City, South Dublin, and Fingal County Councils. The housing association provides 1,404 homes to date in Dublin and 5,777 units across the country, and is aiming to deliver many more, with 2,500 homes in the pipeline over the next three years. Clúid’s spokesperson Simon Brooke said: “We simply cannot deliver housing without our partnerships with local authorities. “They support us in assessing the need for social housing in an area, in achieving the funding and planning, and in referring households from their waiting lists. “They have been vital to every single home added in 2016 and we thank them sincerely for collaborating with us to accomplish this important outcome.” Mr Brooke added: “At a time of

Easing of mortgage restrictions drives house price rise F IRST-TIME buyers, encouraged by the easing of the Central Bank’s restrictions on mortgage deposit lending, will drive a continued rise of at least 2.5 per cent in house prices in north county Dublin throughout 2017, estate agents have predicted.

Limited supply and the easing of first-time buyers restrictions are expected to continue the 8.1 per cent growth that the area experienced in 2016, according to Real Estates Alliance (REA). This comes as the REA Average House Price Survey revealed that prices in north county Dublin had increased by €20,000 over the past year – with the average three-bed semi now costing €267,500. Rising rents, a lack of suitable

supply and the punitive mortgage deposit rules for first and second time buyers had combined to put the Dublin property market into reverse throughout the opening months of 2016. However, an increase in mortgage-approved buyers and the recent easing of the Central Bank’s deposit restrictions has seen first-time buyers return to viewings – and prices rising by 2.9 per cent in the last three months of 2016. This, combined with a shortage of suitable supply, has caused prices to appreciate, and REA agents in the capital are predicting that the outlook is bright for the new year, at least in the lower end of the market. However, there is less appreciation anticipated in the upper ends of the family home scale as serious issues around the

Paul Grimes, of REA Grimes in Skerries, says that the new homes market is very busy in the area and there is lots of demand from

buyers as the incentives are now present. He predicts that prices will rise by 5 per cent in the local area. The survey found that agents expect prices nationally to rise by 6.1 per cent over the next year.

REACHING 329,000 READERS WEEKLY ACROSS DUBLIN

Increase in teenline calls TeenLine Ireland have announced that the free, national listening service for teenagers has received approximately 25,000 calls and almost 26,000 texts since January last year. The service receives between 140 and 170 calls and texts a night while an extra 1,100 calls and texts were received over Christmas. This is a significant increase on the numbers of teenagers contacting the service since 2015. “The number of calls and texts are continuously increasing which highlights the demand for the unique service TeenLine provides

to teenagers and young adults across Ireland. It is hugely positive to see so many young people taking the first step with TeenLine to reach out and talk about their problems,” said Declan Brennan, chairperson of TeenLine. “We’ve visited over 100 schools this year across Ireland to talk with students about the service TeenLine provides and their men-

tal health and we’re hugely appreciative to the schools who invited us to visit their students. We have also enjoyed collaborations with other fantastic organisations such as Cycle Against Suicide, the Office of Children’s Ombudsman, the USI and the Irish Second Level Students Union, who are also spreading the message that it’s always ok to ask for help. We also collaborate with ChildVision

Ireland and the Universities Association of Ireland, we’re seeing teenagers reaching out to us because of these connections.” Registered psychologist and clinical director of TeenLine Ireland Niamh Hannan said: “Teenagers from all walks of life are feeling life’s pressures and are experiencing high levels of anxiety, low mood or depression with issues such as relationships,

school, family finance, homelessness, sexuality and abuse. Our volunteers are trained to listen to teenagers and help them consider their options, We are a confidential, non-directive and non-judgemental service where the young person is always in control of the call or text.” If you would like to volunteer with TeenLine, contact volunteer@teenline.ie

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.

Looking after your bones DID you know that Osteoporosis is a silent disease affecting one in two women and one in four men over the age of 50 in Ireland, although all age groups can be affected? Osteoporosis is preventable and treatable at all stages therefore it is important to address your bone health especially if it is hereditary. There are usually no warning signs an individual has developed osteoporosis and it’s often only diagnosed when a bone is fractured after even minor falls. Loss of bone-building materials can occur as the body ages and is particularly prevalent among post-menopausal women. A simple test by Osteoporosis Clinic Ireland could let you know. During your visit to Osteoporosis Clinic Ireland there will a be a simple step-by-step process. Karen Byrne, Registered General Nurse (RGN), will review and explain your DEXA scan and provide an ultrasound bone density scan to monitor your progress on an ongoing basis. Susan Boland, Nutritional Therapist (NT), will assess you to develop personalised nutrition to meet your specific bone health needs. The clinic’s chartered physiotherapists use research in the development of your exercise programme which is designed to fit in with your lifestyle and individual requirements. Follow up clinics are held three-monthly to review clients’ progress and update their individual protocols. Susan and Karen use the most up to date research in the development of their programme and look forward to engaging with you on your journey to improving your bone health. For more information contact Susan on 086-8580500, Karen on 087-2360877, email info@osteoporosisclinicireland. com or visit www.osteoporosisclinicireland.com The next South Dublin Clinic will take place in Ranelagh on Thursday, January 19 and the next North Dublin Clinic, in Beaumont on Saturday, February 4.

Second Simple minds date at the Olympia

in association with

Celeb Spy Xtra with Rebecca Lee One Republic say they’re delighted to be opening three shows for U2 on the North American leg of their upcoming ‘Joshua Tree’ 30th Anniversary stadium tour later this year. One Republic frontman, Ryan Tedder, is close to U2 after he co-produced several tracks on their 2014 album, ‘Songs of Innocence’. Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds will be special guests on the European leg of the U2 tour. U2 are set to play Croke Park this July. I can’t wait for that one! Can you believe it’s already one year since David Bowie passed away? A concert put together by Gary Oldman took place in New York to mark the date. He died at the age of 69 following a battle with cancer. Nicole Kidman made sure her children were on set while shooting her upcoming movie, ‘Lion’. In the film, Nicole plays the adoptive mother of a boy who goes looking for his real parents. She says that having her own children there during the shoot was important as she felt they could learn a lot from the storyline. Emma Stone scooped the award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture, Musical or Comedy at the 74th Annual Golden Globe Awards in LA. It was for her role in ‘La La Land’, which made Golden Globes history with seven wins. Meanwhile, Meryl Streep caused shockwaves across the world when she made remarks about US President-elect Donald Trump during an acceptance speech. Whatever happened to freedom of speech? Laura Whitmore has bagged her first ever acting role. The MTV star is set to take to the stage in a production of Peter James’ ‘Not Dead Enough’. It’s set to debut at the Bord Gáis Energy Theatre on April 17. Fair play to the Bray native.

That’s it from me. Until next week

IMPLE Minds have added a second Olympia Theatre date after their June 7 gig sold out. The Scottish rockers are bringing their ‘Acoustic live 2017’ set on tour to highlight the release of a new album featuring a career-spanning collection of songs. They have now added a second Olympia Theatre date on June 8 due to demand. This follows several years in which the band has gone from strength-to-strength, while becoming more relevant than ever. Their 2014 album ‘Big Music’ received across the board praise, with MOJO magazine declaring it “their best album in 30 years”. Simple Minds Acoustic continues the band’s artistic quest with a one-off album release of stripped down and re-imagined songs spanning their eclectic and illustrious career. On Simple Minds Acoustic, the band have found a way of doing the acoustic thing without losing their essence, and a dozen Simple Minds songs loved by millions now sound more organic and even more likely to leave a lasting imprint. The synths are no more but the Celtic soul remains. The fact that the album sessions entailed a sentimental return to their Glasgow roots for Jim and guitarist Charlie Burchill helped, with some songs recorded in Gorbals Studio, a former railway workers’ social club located a stone’s throw from the high-rise estates of the city’s Southside where the pair took their first musical steps. It was in this building that Jim and Charlie played their first gig, as teenagers in a school glamrock band, and emotions were understandably high on their return. The genesis of Simple Minds Acoustic can be traced back to a rare live session the band recorded for the Chris Evans Breakfast Show in September 2014, while promoting their 16th studio album, Big Music. The reaction, to the band’s surprise, was overwhelmingly favourable. With this in mind, the

▪ Simple Minds band began 2016 by putting together an acoustic set for the Zermatt Unplugged Festival in the Swiss Alps. Having spent weeks working on meticulously layered acoustic arrangements of their best-loved songs for that 90-minute performance, they began hatching plans to record them.

As a group who formed in the punk era and found their mojo through a shared love of Bowie, Kraftwerk and electronic dance, Simple Minds are not natural acoustic adventurers, but they have done a remarkable job here, adding fresh nuance to brilliant songs without

trampling on sacred memories. Simple Minds’ career has seen them be responsible for some of the most innovative and enduring anthems in rock music and they are widely regarded as one of the best live bands in the world.

Locals take fitness in their stride ENTHUSIASTIC walkers and runners came out in large numbers to take part in two 3k walks and 5k runs organised by Fingal County Council’s sport office in partnership with parkrun on January 7. This was the seventh annual walk to be held in Fingal, the third year in Ward River Valley Park, Swords, and the second year in Porterstown Park. Mayor of Fingal Cllr Darragh Butler was in attendance and ran the Parkrun 5k route in Swords. Children and adults walked or ran the 3k with many more than taking on the more challenging 5k route. The annual walk is supported by Sport Ireland, in association with the RTE hit show ‘Operation Transformation’, and provides an opportunity for the people of Fingal to kickstart their fitness regime for 2017. Meanwhile, parkruns take place every Saturday at 9.30am in Porterstown Park and Ward River Valley Park and in other parks across Fingal with a junior parkrun for younger runners in

Rush on Sundays. New participants are always welcome to join. You only need to register once on www.parkrun.com Fingal’s Principal Sports Officer Marion Brown said: “This was a perfect opportunity for people to kick start their ‘get fit’ new year resolutions with a short fun walk or run and to hopefully use it to start exercising on a regular basis. “We would like to extend a big thank you to the hard working volunteers in both parkruns for their keen and willing cooperation with the walks. They helped make it a memorable event for all involved.” For more information on getting fit and active see the Operation Transformation Facebook page or www.operationtransformation.ie

outlasting your probation period Cormac Spencer HAVING nailed the interview, and accepted an offer to start your new job, you breathe a sigh of relief and relax. It’s all downhill from here, isn’t it? Not quite. While signing your new contract might be pleasing, your new job isn’t something guaranteed for life. For a start, most jobs require a six-month probation period to assess whether your work performance matches your performance in interview. For an employee this time is important in making sure the probation is a mere formality, and that the job is secured for however long it’s wanted.

METER READERS REQUIRED

Starting a new job provides the opportunity to institute yourself as a valuable member of the team. First impressions are important and you only get to make one. Good first impressions allow you to establish yourself as someone recognised as smart, motivated, and possessing the potential to progress. The chances are that you have never met most of the people you are working with, so you have a clean slate with which to make your mark. For the first few weeks of a new job, co-workers will cut you some slack. They assume you don’t know how everything works, so use this time to ask questions. Bring a pad and write down answers to make sure it sinks in. A good tip is to hold queries until the end of the day as they are often answered in the normal course of things. This also stops you butting in with a question every five minutes and coming across as though you aren’t grasping things. Familiarise yourself with new systems and work practices, ask pertinent questions, and look for training early on, because whereas as people are happy to help when you first join the company, if you are asking what your login to the computer is after two months their patience may begin to wear thin! It’s important to introduce yourself around in a new organisation. Get to know who does what, and who makes the decisions. Knowing the key players allows you to do your job better.

Try to avoid getting sucked in to gossip about co-workers. Be polite to those who are spreading it, but take people as you find them. This is an opportunity to progress in a new company, so don’t make enemies when you don’t need to. During the early days of a new job, try to have an input in meetings and during work. Come up with suggestions and insights that mark you out as someone who is sharp, confident and who knows their stuff. Be careful not to come across as a know it all, or to impose yourself too aggressively, and remember not to say things like: “this is not how we used to do things in my old job”. You aren’t in Kansas now! People are most interested in what works in the here and now and for the future. Finally don’t rest on your laurels. It should be said, that probation periods are two-way streets (allowing the company to assess you, but also allowing you to see if the job is really what you want), but once you decide you want the job, don’t let your performance drop after you are confirmed as a permanent employee. Keep contributing and mark yourself out as one to be watched. A new job is a fresh slate. Be confident, make yourself invaluable and you might find opportunities present themselves not just for increases in salary, but for progress. •Cormac Spencer is a Recruitment Consultant/Director at Link Personnel Services.

Further drop in unemployment is welcomed

M

INISTER for Social Protection Leo Varadkar has welcomed the further fall in monthly unemployment shown in the figures published by the Central Statistics Office (CSO). The number of people out of work fell by 18.4 per cent in 2016, from an estimated 193,200 in December 2015 to an estimated 157,700 last month. This means that unemployment fell at a faster rate in 2016 than in any year since the start of the recovery. As a percentage of the workforce, unemployment now stands at 7.2 per cent, down from 7.3 per cent in November 2016 and from 8.9 per cent in December 2015. Minister Varadkar said the figures confirm that the economy has continued to improve during 2016 resulting in a reduction of 35,500 in the number of people who are unemployed. “I am determined to continue to make more changes for the better this year to ensure that the benefits of economic recovery are felt by every individual, household and region in the country through reduced unemployment, higher living standards and enhanced social protection,” he said. The Minister has pledged that every effort will be made to make substantial progress towards the unemployment target of 5-6 per cent and long term unemployment target of 2.5 per cent and move another 20,000 people from welfare to work in 2017. He added: “This will be achieved through activation measures like one-to-one engagements with jobseekers; using initiatives like JobsWeek to match jobseekers with employers; making work pay through sustainable wage increases, effective tax reductions and new social insurance measures like paternity benefit; promoting financial supports like JobsPlus and the Wage Subsidy Scheme; reforming existing work schemes like Community Employment and Tús; and developing initiatives across the whole of Government in education, training, housing and childcare. “In addition, the publication of the Action Plan for Jobless Families will allow us to zero in on

long-term and intergenerational unemployment.”

Take the DFEi route to college YOU may not immediately notice the DFEi building on Cumberland Street in DĂşn Laoghaire because it is situated in the quiet end of the town. There is a completely different buzz though when you pass through the automatic doors. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the buzz you feel between classes or at break time when the stairs and corridors are filled with learners of all ages and from diverse backgrounds, who all seem to be on a personal mission. They might be heading for the library to type up an assignment, heading to the sound studio to do a recording, the radio studio to do an interview or to the TV and film studio for a casting call. Why not tune into 107.8fm and listen to DFEiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very own radio station, The Wave? You will find an archive of accomplished docu-

mentaries and reports online at thewaveonline.ie. Having visited the Criminal Courts of Justice and listened to the evidence in a murder trial, or sat in on a DĂĄil debate, the journalism learners have plenty to write about. Other learners of a more scientific bent might be bracing themselves for a dissection in the lab, or for testing their newly acquired veterinary assistance or grooming skills on real animals. The more corporate minded business learners will be grappling with computerised payroll, bookkeeping, spreadsheets and databases, while Office Administration learners will be acquiring the languages of medicine and the law. In DFEi, you are as likely to see learners carrying T-squares and tool kits as guitars and cameras. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because courses like Furni-

ture Making and Restoration and Musical Instrument Making and Repair demand the tools of the trade. Some Sound Engineering learners will have composed their own material and will audition for the annual college album release. The skills of the Security learners will always be sought for live events. Newspapers, scripts, and press releases will be written. Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s archaeological heritage will be studied, web sites will be designed, architectural models will be built and fine pieces of furniture will be made. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all in a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work at DFEi. While activities beyond the classroom doors are engaging young (and not so young) minds there is something more important that the discerning person might notice. That is teachers and learners in conversation.

It might appear like more casual one-to-one classes are taking place on the stairs, the corridors or on the sofa outside the admin office. This will usually be reassurance, explanation or clarification, news about work experience or progression with an assignment. The big appointments book

outside the Guidance Counsellorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office will become fuller as the academic year unfolds with learners anxious to discuss their Higher Links options â&#x20AC;&#x201C; links to NUI, DIT, IADT, NCI, IT Tallaght, IT Blanchardstown, as well as other Institutes of Technology and universities all over Ireland, and be-

yond. If, for whatever reason, you do not get enough points for your chosen third level course, consider spending a year in DFEi. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another tried and tested way to get a place in college through our many defined progression routes. The formula is simple - eight

This gem in Tuscany is a must for lovers of history Rick Steves

S

AN Gimignano is the epitome of a Tuscan hill town.

About 25 miles from both Florence and Siena, it’s the region’s glamour girl - visually striking and perfectly preserved, it gets all the fawning attention from passing tour buses. But despite its tourist-trap feel, it’s still worth slotting into your Italian itinerary - especially if you can sidestep the hordes who descend during the day. San Gimignano is beloved because of its skyline of medieval towers. Though a unique sight today, pointy skylines were the norm in Tuscany in the Middle Ages, when feuding noble families ran the hill towns (think Montagues and Capulets). Each family had its own private army that would periodically battle things out from the protection of its respective family towers. While some were built as a refuge against attackers, others were empty, chimney-like structures built only to boost noble egos. In the 14th century, San Gimignano, like other hill towns, fell under

Rick Steves Florence’s control. The Florentines usually asserted their power over the local nobles by ordering them to lop off their towers. But for whatever reason, some of San Gimignano’s original skyline was allowed to remain intact. Today, 14 of its original 72 towers still stand. A stroll through the core of San Gimignano, in the shadows of its surviving towers, is a delight. As the town was about a day’s trek to Siena or Florence in the Middle Ages, it was a good stopover for pilgrims en route from those cities to Rome.

▪ The historic centre of San Gimignano is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Near the main gate, you can still see the remains of a 12th-century pilgrims’ shelter. At the centre of town is Piazza della Cisterna, named for the cistern that is served by the old well standing in the centre of this square. Rustic-yet-proud facades crowd in a tight huddle around the well. I like imagining this square in pilgrimage times, lined by inns and taverns for the town’s guests, with maids and children fetching water from the well. On Piazza del Duomo stands the town’s Romanesque cathedral. Sienese Gothic art from the 14th century lines the nave with parallel themes - Old Testament on the left and New Testament on the right. This is a classic use of art to teach. Many scenes are portrayed with a 14thcentury ‘slice of life’ setting to help townspeople relate to Jesus. Nearby is a pair of towers that have stood side by side for more than 700 years. These sisters are empty shells, built by the Salvucci family simply to show off. At the time they were built, no one was allowed a vanity tower higher than the old City Hall’s 170 feet. So the

▪ San Gimignano is an amazingly preserved hill town, with 14 medieval towers still standing. PHOTO: RICK STEVES

Salvuccis built two 130-foot towers - totalling 260 feet of stony ego trip. Local guides claim that Minoru Yamasaki, the architect of New York City’s World Trade Center, was inspired by these twin towers. (I have no idea if that’s true, but they sure look like they could have.) Of the 14 towers, visitors are allowed to climb the one at the newer City Hall - at 200 feet, the city’s tallest tower. A visit here also includes access to a small museum with festive frescoes that provide a peek at how people dressed, lived, worked, and warred in the 14th century. Although San Gimignano is gorgeous, it is also quite crowded, and at midday it can come off as a pretty greedy place, with vendors everywhere vying for the tourist euro. I find the charm of San Gimignano is easiest to enjoy after hours, when most tourists have gone back to their buses, vendors have made their money, and the town recaptures its magic. Smart travellers arrive here late in the day and stay overnight. Though San Gimignano has perfectly good accommodations, if you want to get the full dose of that salt-of-

the-earth Tuscan magic, stay in the countryside surrounding the town, either at a bed-and-breakfast-type guesthouse or an agriturismo (a small, working farm that rents out rooms). At many of these places, visitors can enjoy fine food, a swimming pool, a serene setting, and the company of other travellers - and good Tuscan living. No matter where you stay, eating dinner at one of San Gimignano’s restaurants provides a fine opportunity to sample typical Tuscan home cooking. Cinghiale (wild boar) is made into stews, soups, and - my favourite - salami. The area is well known for producing some of the best saffron in Italy; you’ll find the spice for sale in shops and as flavouring in meals at finer restaurants. Although Tuscany is normally a redwine region, the most famous Tuscan white wine comes from here: the inexpensive, light, and fruity Vernaccia di San Gimignano. After dinner, the empty streets are yours to savour. Enjoying San Gimignano at night gives you a chance to experience the romantic Tuscan town you’ve been dreaming about.

get the right tyres now for winter AS TEMPERATURES plummet now is the time to prepare your car for the winter conditions that lie ahead, tyre manufacturer Michelin has advised. Against the backdrop of survey results conducted by them showing that 60 per cent of motorists drive with tyres that are underinflated, it is noted that, with normal tyres, low temperatures can harden the tread, reducing grip on slippery surfaces. In winter, when temperatures can drop below 7˚C, the advice is that motorists would fit tyres designed specifically for winter conditions with compounds that remain flexible to improve grip and braking. In this respect, the launch recently of their Michelin CrossClimate has put the French tyre maker ahead of the curve. Made to perform equally well on sun-baked and snow-covered roads, the new Cross-Climate tyre is billed as the first summer tyre to be independently certified for winter use. Available in 30 different sizes for 14 to 18-inch wheels, the Cross-Climate tyre is the fruit of three technologies - an innovative compound that grips the road in all conditions; an energyefficient, under-tread layer with low heat build-up properties; and a unique ‘V’- pattern tread with varying ‘vee’ angles and self-locking, variable-width sipes that act like claws in snow to enhance traction. A study conducted by Michelin during the course of its development revealed that 65 per cent of European motorists use summer tyres all year round. In Germany - where regulations require winter tyres - the figure was 20 per cent while in France, where no regulations apply, the figure was 76 per cent.

Out of every 10 European motorists, four considered it a constraint to change tyres in summer and winter, while three per cent of drivers in Germany and seven per cent in France use winter tyres all year round. Menwhile, as the colder, darker weather descends, mobility solutions specialist, easytrip, Ireland’s only electronic parking and tolling tag provider, is reminding drivers to be extra vigilant. “Breakdowns such as punctures, flat batteries and engine failures can become more frequent so getting your annual car service and spending five minutes checking your vehicle each week will ensure that any faults are identified and fixed as soon as possible,” said Colin Delaney, General Manager at easytrip Ireland. “For added peace of mind, we would advise motorists to avail of our Puncture Protect service.” Puncture Protect offers drivers reassurance in the event of a puncture with unlimited puncture repairs a real benefit for drivers during the winter months. Easytrip’s Puncture Protect service, in partnership with Advance Pitstop, offers easytrip members unlimited puncture repairs for only €19.99 annually. Visit www.easytrip.ie for more information or call 1890676768. Customers of easytrip Ireland save on toll fees, avoid incurring fines on the M50 motorway and have access to all 11 toll plazas nationwide as well as exclusive cash-free access to 25 car parks across Belfast, Cork, Dublin, Galway, Limerick and Waterford and other motoring services.

REACHING 329,000 READERS WEEKLY ACROSS DUBLIN

the tivoli would make you miss those summer days Seán Creedon LAST year I drove the new Tivoli XLV and naturally people I met during the week who were curious asked me about this new SUV which they knew very little about. When I said it was a Ssangyong their first reaction was ‘oh that’s Bill Cullen’. I suppose that’s the power of the media because Bill Cullen is just one of Ssangyong’s 13 dealers in Ireland, but the former head of Renault in Ireland is rarely out of the news and I suppose in a roundabout way that’s probably good for Ssangyong. Bill Cullen Cars in Bluebell is one of three Renault dealers in Dublin, but the Irish franchise is held by the Harris group. The XLV is a larger version of the Tivoli which was has been available in Ireland for over a year now. The big difference seems to

extra space in the interior and in the boot where you now have over 700 litres of boot space. Overall I think it’s nearly big enough to be a seven-seater, but you only get five seats. The XLV is 60mm higher than the regular Tivoli, but you would need to be wearing an anorak to spot the difference. Ssangyong, who returned to the Irish market in 2013 after a five-year absence, has a reputation for building huge, powerful diesel people carriers, most of which were not very pretty, but functional. You may be familiar

▪ Ssangyong’s Tivoli. with the Korando, Rexton and Rodius. Revamped versions of that trio are due here in the coming

year, but for now the South Korean manufacturer is focussing on the SUV market with their Tivoli

and now the Tivoli XLV. I drove an automatic version of the Tivoli when it was launched last year and truth be told it the gear change wasn’t brilliant. But the manual six-gear XLV version was excellent. Journalists tend to get the top of the range models and my test car had heated front seats, Sat Nav and reversing cameras. As I said earlier the boot space is huge and there is still room for a ‘mini’ spare wheel. The spare will reduce the boot space, but I would always prefer a wheel to a repair kit. The seats, which predominantly cream, were excellent and you will appreciate the high driving position. Overhead there was a small sun roof. There are unusual zig-zag style

elastic bands on the back of the two front seats. They will hold papers or brochures, but I would worry if you have bold children they might keep flicking the elastic bands. Prices for the regular Tivoli start at €21,495, while the entrylevel 1.6-litre diesel XLV starts at €25,495 and the higher speced EL version will cost you €28,995. Road tax is €200. It’s a fine, spacious motor and comfortable to drive and travel in. I suppose the only worries would be about the residual values. Ssangyong has produced a very glossy brochure to promote their XLV. Glancing through the pages would definitely put you in the mood for camping or other outdoor pursuits and wishing that summer was still here.

Volkswagenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tiguan has a really nice chunky look to it SeĂĄn Creedon IT LOOKS like bit like a BMW side on. That was one of the many complimentary remarks I got recently while driving the new VW Tiguan. We all like to get a few compliments now and then and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure the marketing people at VW would be happy with that comparison. This new version of the Tiguan came in a very attractive Deep Black Pearl colour and it looked cool. So cool and coupled with the tinted rear windows it reminded me that it would be ideal for Limousine or private taxi work if that was your line of business. The Tiguan has been with us since 2007 and after a face-lift in 2011, we now get the second generation, which is 61mm longer

and 30mm wider. However, its 33mm lower, but would your average tyre-kicker notice those measurements? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built on the VW group MQB platform. For me it had a nice chunky look to it. Looking at it from the front the elongated horizontal grille is very impressive. Colour is so important when choosing a new car and I think the deep Black Pearl helped the Tiguan stand out

in the supermarket carpark. My Highline version was very spacious and had attractive 17inch Kingston alloys, tinted rear windows, a brilliant reversing camera and a few more extras. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a most pleasant motor to travel in. You get a raised driving position and the seats are soft and comfortable. And naturally there is plenty of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pokeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is you are in a hurry to take off or want to overtake in a tight spot. There is plenty of leg and head room for three well-built adults in the back seat. The boot is a decent size and the good news is that you get a mini spare wheel. The only niggling problem was the stopstart technology as it tended to

cut out. But on reflection maybe it was my own fault, as I may not have pressing the clutch hard enough when changing gears. As usual there are three trim levels: Comfortline, Trendline and Highline. Prices start at â&#x201A;Ź29,085 for the 1.4-litre 125 brake horse power petrol version. My Highline 150-brake horse power test model starts at â&#x201A;Ź 36,790 and when you add in delivery charges and that very attractive Deep Black Pearl effect the price rises to â&#x201A;Ź37,389. But as I always say nobody is forcing you to go for the higher spec. Road tax is â&#x201A;Ź270. Competition is tough in this sector with the Nissan Qashqai and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best seller, the

â&#x2013;Ş The VW Tiguan. Hyundai Tucson. But I think the Tiguan should be a serious challenger for either of those two best sellers. Volkswagen is planning a big push for the Tiguan for 2017 and Volkswagenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bank has plenty of money to lend. They are offering

attractive deals until the end of the year, if for example you want to upgrade from the entry-level Comfortline version. PCPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for the entry level Comfort line are â&#x201A;Ź359 per month. So the advice seems to be, talk to your local VW dealer... soon.

Mercedes gLC Coupe is a classy car Seán Creedon MANY years ago when I started reviewing cars, a PR woman told me not to worry about how quickly a car will get from zero to 100kph. She advised me to concentrate instead on what a car is like for everyday family use. Ever since then I await the views of my family on Monday evenings when I arrive home with a new motor. After a few weeks of mixed reaction to sporty ‘boy racers’ and massive people carriers, I got many compliments when I got home last Monday with the new Mercedes GLC 220d Coupe. “Now this is a classy car,” was the unanimous verdict.

Mercedes, who recently confirmed that all of its new car prices are dropping by ten per cent, are on a ‘high’ right now as sales in Ireland have increased by 44 per cent this year. Also Mercedes’ E-Class was named Continental Car of the Year at the end of October by Irish motor writers. The company say the price reduction will apply for a

limited period and is intended as a competitive tool to give support to dealer organisations in their efforts to combat the effect in currency values on new car sales here following the Brexit result. The GLC is a mid-size SUV and slots in between the smaller GLA and the larger GLE. It is the first Merc of its kind and size in Ireland as it replaces the GLK which was only made in left-hand drive. And it sure is a comfortable and classy motor to drive and travel in. Available in petrol and diesel, I had 170 horses working under the bonnet in my 2.1 automatic version and naturally there was

▪ The Mercedes-Benz GLC Coupe. plenty of power. Externally it’s a chunky looking motor, but you do get the coupe effect as there is a slight slope towards the rear. Two silver-coloured side running boards suggest that this car would be fit to transport an American president. I associate running boards in cars with US presidents because the first time I saw detectives use the running boards was when looking at television coverage of a presidential cavalcade. Inside you get all the usual Mercedes goodies on the dash. I love the cruise control lever in

Mercedes cars and also the way you can scroll through the radio stations. There is also an option for Internet Radio, but when I tried it I got a message saying no internet connection. Despite the 10 per cent reduction, you couldn’t describe the GLC as cheap, but no doubt it’s a bargain compared to other luxury brands with a starting price of €65,435. The various extras bring the price of the car as tested to over 72K. But when you apply the 10 per cent reduction the price falls to just over 65,000, which basically means that you get all those

extras for free. Road tax is €390. Ciaran Allen, sales manager for Mercedes-Benz in Ireland is a good man for stats and he says the GLC Coupe is a “niche model that will appeal to those seeking an even more sporty version of the GLC itself”. It’s hard to find a fault with this luxurious car and the lack of a proper spare wheel would be my only complaint. However, there is space for a spare. Also the horn gives a slight beep when you apply the central locking. That’s fine by day, but it might annoy neighbours in a built up area late at night.

Dermalogica Age Reversal Eye Complex RRP €75.50 The skin around the eye is the thinnest on the body and has fewer oil glands than the rest of the face, making the area more susceptible to environmental factors, including UV exposure which, combined with mechanical movements such as smiling and squinting, lead to fine lines and wrinkles. Age Reversal Eye Complex helps fortify supporting underlying tissues while refreshing the resiliency of surface skin, resulting in smoother, more responsive skin in this fragile area. By speeding up the cell turnover process, stimulating collagen production and thickening the cell layers around the eyes, skin appears plumper, fuller and smoother with fewer wrinkles and consistent pigment distribution. Dermalogica products are only available on the recommendation of a qualified skin care therapist. For stockist details, tel 1800556785 or visit www.dermalogica.ie @dermalogicauk
