over centre plan SELLING YOUR GNOME HOME? Tidy nests sell faster Pat O’Rourke RESIDENTS in a Northside suburb gathered together last week to strongly oppose Dublin City Council’s plans to build a new community centre in their area. While the residents are delighted that the city council is planning to

invest over €3 million into the muchneeded amenity, they are adamant that the site on a green space at Thornville Drive, Kilbarrack, is totally inappropriate. The residents feel the site for the three-storey centre is far too close to their houses and local schools, and will result in traffic chaos if given the

green light. Over 150 residents, who mainly live on Thornville Drive, Thornville Avenue and Greendale Avenue have signed a petition in protest against the proposed location. Dublin City Council held two information evenings last Tuesday and Wednesday night (May 9 and

attacks on their public transport facility and neighbourhood and also the increasing feelings of uneasiness in using their local Dart Station. “This disgraceful nonsense has gone on long enough. It is now critical that Irish Rail, Dublin City Council, Fingal County Council, Gannon Homes and other key stakeholders get together with public representatives and An Garda Síochána to ensure that this breakdown in law and order stops immediately and never reoccurs.” Deputy Broughan added: “Minister Flanagan needs to ensure me that my constituents are safe and he needs to come out to Dublin Bay North and visit us and see the affected communities and facilities for himself.”

George Downes (12) from Balrothery National School, Balbriggan, was honoured at the Sightsavers Junior Painter Awards Ceremony for his work entitled ‘Lift Off to a Brighter Future.’ This year’s theme, ‘Put Us In The Picture’, inspired creative entries from hundreds of primary schools across the country. The winners were thrilled to be presented with their awards by Sightsavers chief executive Charlie Lamson. The judges tasked with the difficult job of choosing this year’s winners were disability campaigner Sinéad Burke (aka Minnie Melange), Laureate na nÓg and illustrator PJ Lynch, and artist and director of Arts and Disability Ireland Padraig Naughton.

It’s time to reclaim the DART from the thugs TONY McCULLAGH Group Editor Dublin People t.mccullagh@dublinpeople.com

BACK in the early 1990s, I was asked by a tabloid newspaper editor to undertake a somewhat risky assignment. Eager to make an impression, I accepted the daunting challenge of travelling on the last DART from Howth to Bray on a Saturday night. I fully expected to run the gauntlet of marauding, drunken yobs who were reportedly running amok on the latenight train every weekend. I boarded the DART in Howth and

interviewed a number of Irish Rail staff and passengers about their negative experiences. Like most things in Ireland, incidences of antisocial behaviour and violence were mostly linked to heavy drinking as customers spilled out of pubs and poured themselves into crowded rail carriages. My journey to Bray that particular night was largely uneventful, save for some abusive language and one minor brawl as we approached the city centre. ‘WE RIDE THE NIGHT TRAIN OF TERROR!’ screamed the somewhat exaggerated headline when my article was published the following Sunday. I was reminded of that night after shocking reports emerged about a frightening incident at Clongriffin

Better protection is needed for DART passengers. FILE PHOTO/DARREN KINSELLA station last week. Passengers were left terrified as gangs of youths attacked a DART, sprayed it with graffiti and prevented it from departing the station. It made me nostalgic for the days when security staff with large guard dogs were a regular sight on the DART. I wonder if the feral thugs would have been so brave if they had been confronted by an agitated German Shepherd straining on his leash!

It’s not just the lack of security staff on trains that is at issue here. Many DART stations are now unmanned, which has left passengers more exposed to criminal acts. It is also a major inconvenience for those with disabilities or mobility issues who have to phone ahead to ensure that a member of Irish Rail staff will be available to assist them. Moreover, the lack of staff at stations and on trains further encourages fare evasion. This lost revenue to Irish Rail

could be used to fund better security measures for its passengers and drivers. Re-staffing our train stations is a very necessary first step in encouraging greater public transport use. Ultimately, however, a dedicated transport police division needs to be established to rid our Luas, bus and rail services of the scourge of criminal thuggery like that witnessed on the DART in Clongriffin last week. I won’t be holding my breath.

Northside school clarifies position WE at Gaelscoil Cholmcille are delighted to note your coverage of Minister Richard Bruton's recent visit to our school, and our campaign to secure a permanent building. We feel, however, that the department's response to this campaign, as reported, might mislead the reader, so I offer the following clarification:

1. Our school has been turning away an entire class, up to 30 children, every year, denying them the chance of Irishlanguage education in their own community. 2. While there may currently be sufficient space in schools locally, the department has been informed that 650 new homes are planned within 500 metres of the site set aside for our

permanent building, resulting in demand for up to 1,000 primary school places. A school on the doorstep with no places is no use to those children. The Government is often accused of inefficient "firefighting", and a lack of "joined-up thinking". Our campaign presents an opportunity for this Government, and for this Minister, to

avoid these mistakes, and to mark Blian na Gaeilge with a significant and meaningful boost to education and to the Irish language in Coolock. Our campaign continues, and we welcome expressions of interest from parents. Le meas, Daithí Mac Conraoi Gaelscoil Cholmcille Lána na Cúlóige BÁC 17

Residents concerned over site for new community centre continued from page 1 “There is also a senior citizens’ complex close by, another primary school and a playschool. “We feel that the site is totally unsuitable as it is too near the houses and there will be major traffic issues. “It will be particularly crazy during the school drop-offs.” Asked about an alternative site for the community centre, Mr Darcy said the residents are “100 percent of the opinion that the old community centre on Greendale Road should be knocked down and rebuilt”.

New campaign helps people with disabilities A NEW campaign has been launched to save people with disabilties from suffering the indignity of having to use toilet facilities that are not suitable for their needs. The Clontarf-based Irish Wheelchair Association (IWA), Disability Federation of Ireland (DFI) and Inclusion Ireland, alongside people with disabilities and their families, came together to launch Changing Places toilet facilities which have proved to be a life–changer for thousands of people. Changing Places are different to standard accessible toilet facilities in that they include a centrally located toilet with adequate space both sides for transfers/ assistants; adequate place for a wheelchair user and at least two assistants; a

height-adjustable adult size changing bench; and a full room coverage ceiling track hoist system. The Changing Places Ireland Campaign is encouraging businesses, organisations and public bodies to build and fund more of these facilities. Currently, Changing Places toilet facilities are available at Aras an Uachtaráin, Dublin Airport, Trinity College Dublin, the National Gallery, Irish Human Rights Commission, IKEA Ballymun and the Lime Tree Theatre in Limerick. Minister of State for the Office of Public Works (OPW) and Flood Relief, Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran, joined the Changing Places Working Group to launch the campaign in Ireland. “I am delighted to be associated with this

initiative which aims to provide those with disabilities easier access to changing place facilities,” said Minister Moran. “The OPW has participated in this initiative and has provided a Changing Place facility in Áras an Uachtaráin. “The OPW are currently carrying out appraisals at our heritage sites with viable solutions such as mobile units and permanent structures being considered.” Minister Moran said he has been a long-term proponent of enhanced services and facilities for those with disabilities.  “Earlier this year I announced that persons with disabilities and their carers would be able to visit OPW-managed paid visitor heritage sites for free,” he added.

Football match is held in memory of tragic Andrew Orla O’Driscoll ANDREW Roddy was a joker. A larger than life personality, he was loved by his friends for his constant mischief. A keen footballer, he was not averse to using unorthodox methods to put his opponents off their game. Andrew, who was originally from Killester, once convinced his coworkers at New Ireland Insurance that he had watched a documentary on National Geographic which had shown all Polar bears were left handed. “Because he could,” says his wife Gillian. “He said, ‘they believed me, because why would you lie about that?’” According to Gillian, who lives in Portmarnock, Andrew loved making people laugh. “It was always just innocent fun,” she tells Northside People. “I think his friends all miss that. He was such a huge personality.” Andrew died unexpectedly on honeymoon in October 2017, taking a mass of energy, laughter, and mischief with him. He had just turned 30. He leaves behind a broken hearted young wife and a vast legacy of love. Over the May bank holiday weekend, Gillian (33), and Andrew’s best friends, Simon Devenney and Rob Gorman, hosted a charity football match

The players who took part in the memorial match. in Scribblestown, in Andrew’s honour, to raise funds for the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust. Gillian says: “His friends said they wanted to do something in his honour. “We settled on raising funds for the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust, as they had supported me and my family so much in the aftermath of Andrew’s sudden death.” Andrew and Gillian had been together for just five years and were honeymooning in the Maldives when the tragedy occurred. “You don’t know what to do,” says Gillian. “I phoned home, and everyone gathered here. My aunt knew about the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust and phoned them. They were amazing. “They asked if we had travel insurance, and once

they knew we did, they still advised what would happened next, and how the whole procedure would unfold.” Gillian was covered by travel insurance, and so did not need to avail of the fund, set up by Colin Bell, after his son Kevin’s tragic death in New York while on a J1 visa five years ago. Colin says: “We get tremendous support throughout Ireland and from the wider diaspora. “Any fundraising that is done is always for the next family who are going to get terrible news. “It says a lot that we are so well funded solely through donations.” The fund is used for repatriation to Ireland, in cases where people are not insured. “Andrew was the glue between his friends,” says Gillian.

“To see them out in force on Sunday (May 6) raising funds was amazing. So many people don’t think travel insurance is important. It’s vital. Our insurance kicked in and my Dad was able to come to support me in bringing Andrew home.” So far €9,000 has been raised from the football event, but Gillian is hopeful that they can increase this. “It costs up to €15,000 or more to bring a body home,” she says. “Depending on circumstance. The money raised will help a family in a tragedy. We had insurance and the support of the Irish embassy was invaluable. And I can’t praise the Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust enough for what they do, and how they supported us.” Gillian hopes to return

to work with New Ireland. “Work have been great,” she says. “It’s where Andrew and I met and worked together. It’s their loss too. The fundraiser has been a welcome distraction. Something positive to focus on.” Gillian hopes to create an annual charity event in Andrew’s name. “It’s almost seven months now; it’s still surreal,” she adds. “You don’t get used to it, you just try to build a normality. Andrew was a person, a big huge happy person. And I really want people to remember that.” The fund will remain open until the end of June.

Fingal begins to build its project for Bloom 2018 The pupils from St Fintan’s National School, Sutton, pictured with a cheque for €1,000 for the Irish Cancer Society. PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA

Children blossom during fundraiser PUPILS at a Northside school showed their entrepreneurial flair recently during a fundraiser for the Irish Cancer Society (ICS).  All the pupils at St Fintan’s National School, Sutton, raised the money after being given a donation of 1,500 daffodil

bulbs along with topsoil and trowels. This led to a fundraising venture that saw all the bulbs planted around the school by children, staff and parents. The children then sold the flowering daffodils and raised €1,000 for this worthy charity.

CONSTRUCTION of Fingal’s Bloom in the Park 2018 garden has commenced. The title for this year’s entry is ‘The Greener Way for Fingal’. It is the result of a partnership between Fingal County Council, the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown (ITB) and the Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education and Training Board (DDLETB). The theme of this year’s garden highlights the potential for the development of multi-functional open spaces to allow for greater sustainability across the county. Speaking about the theme, Fingal County Council’s Assistant Parks Superintendent, Mark Finnegan, said ‘The Greener Way for Fingal’ aims to illustrate how the county’s parks and open spaces can be developed to improve sustainability as well as being used for leisure by communities. “Open spaces no longer have a

single purpose as recreational areas but must also function as natural play areas, wildlife habitats, pedestrian or cycle routes and sustainable urban drainage systems,” said Mr Finnegan. ‘The Greener Way for Fingal’ was designed by Landscape Designer Jane Corkery while the planting was carried out by ITB students of Horticulture under the direction of their lecturers. The participants of the Local Training Initiative managed by the DDLETB based in Bremore Castle, Balbriggan, have constructed all the hard landscape features including the gabion walls, stepping stones, swale and walkway using skills they have acquired as part of their course. ‘The Greener Way for Fingal’ will include a model cycleway and a swale which is used for water drainage as well as wild flower turf to demonstrate the multifunctional roles that open spaces can play. Mayor of Fingal Cllr Mary McCamley said she is looking forward to seeing

the completed garden at this year’s Bloom event. “It is a wonderful opportunity for us to celebrate our county’s natural beauty and community spaces while highlighting the importance of leading sustainable lives which will hugely benefit the well-being of Fingal’s environment and its population,” said the mayor. This is the third year that Fingal, ITB and DDLETB have worked together to create a garden for the Bloom in the Park festival. Chief executive of Fingal County Council Paul Reid said he is delighted to see the partnership continuing this year. “Not only is it a chance to highlight the possibilities for Fingal’s open spaces but it allows us to benefit from each other’s skills and experience through collaboration,” he said.

Audiologist’s sound advice flags James’s health problem

Anita Redmond - Audiological Assistant, James Heatley, Giveback Nominee Patient of Hidden Hearing, and Barry Douglas, Audiologist with Hidden Hearing.

A NORTHSIDE man has told how a routine hearing test uncovered a cancerous lump behind his ear. James Heatley (80), a retired civil servant from Artane, noticed his hearing began deteriorating around five years ago. He regularly has his hearing tested and it was at one of these routine examinations with his audiologist, Barry Douglas of the Artane Hidden Hearing Branch, that the cancerous lump was found. “I came in before Christmas and told Barry that I had a pimple behind my ear,” said James. “I thought that it was just an irritation from wearing the hearing aid. Barry thought it was strange because he had never had that complaint. He looked at

it and he asked me if I had been to the doctor and I said no. “I tried putting a plaster on it but it didn’t work. He told me to go straight to the doctor who immediately sent me to the Mater Hospital for tests. Then I got word that it was cancer.” The pimple immediately worried Barry who knew it was more than just an irritation from an old and worn out hearing aid. “The pimple or sore didn’t look good,” said Barry. “It was weeping, it was healing and weeping again. The re-occurring healing had me worried and as with any patient with a worrying symptom, I told him ( James) to go to his doctor.” Although the cancer was caught in time, it had a devastating impact

on James’s everyday life as he struggled to hear without his hearing device. “I couldn’t hear anyone because I hadn’t the hearing aids in,” said James. “The cancer was affecting a nerve, I couldn’t sleep at night and they gave me tablets. Eventually through treatment, I got rid of it.” On James’ 80th birthday he got the call from Hidden Hearing to say he would receive a complimentary new state-of-the-art hearing aid. “It was the best birthday present I got,” said James. “My wife was thrilled because she has been shouting at me over the TV being turned up too loud for the last couple of months. “The help I’ve gotten from everyone at

Hidden Hearing has been amazing. The new hearing aid will give me more confidence to go about me life and be more sociable. “I was always full of confidence but since my hearing went I lost that a bit.” Meanwhile, Barry has nominated James for the company’s ‘Give Back’ programme. The nationwide scheme sees the company giving many top of the range hearing devices to those who their audiologists feel need them the most. Barry said one of the major effects of untreated hearing loss that he sees is frustration. “What I most commonly see is frustration and annoyance on both the person with the hearing loss’s part but possibly I have seen more of this with the people that share their world,” said Barry. “Isolation is also a huge factor on hearing loss as people withdraw from social inclusion.” Barry, who has been working as an audiologist at Hidden Hearing for 11 years, believes hearing tests should be done as routinely as a blood test. “One in five people suffer from hearing loss and we need to change this,” said Barry. “Hearing loss is stigmatised culturally. It’s heavily stigmatised and it’s not seen as routine test. “It’s a test that’s really only done when your older typically. “It needs to be done routinely as you would have your blood pressure checked or your eyesight tested.” Anita Redmond, Audiological Assistant for Hidden Hearing Artane, also nominated James for the ‘Give Back’ programme. “Since I started in Hidden Hearing in 2014 I have experienced, along with our patients, their journey from a silent world to a world full of hearing,” said Ms Redmond.

News films launched at the IFI

Film Review

Tom Vaughan Lawlor stars as Hugh Lane IT’S a far cry from his turn as the evil Ebony Maw in ‘Avengers Infinity War’, but Tom Vaughan Lawlor shows his versatility by playing Irish art dealer Hugh Lane in the new documentary drama, ‘Citizen Lane’. Many Dubliners will be familiar with the Cork-born philanthropist because of the gallery on Parnell Square which bears his name, but few will know of his life and struggles. Lane’s passion was to bring art to the people and this he achieved in 1908 by donating a collection of then modern pieces which he housed on Harcourt Street. A renowned and shrewd collector, other bidders would reportedly closely monitor Lane’s pre auction viewing and prices of paintings he liked would increase in price as a result. His ambitious plans to move the gallery to new premises spanning the Liffey met with resistance in 1913 Lockout Dublin, and soon after Lane tragically died on board the Lusitania before the final resting place for his paintings were found on Parnell Square. He leaves today a collection that includes works by Manet,

Monet and Renoir, some of which are contentiously held by London’s National Gallery. The film is a difficult one to review because it falls between two stools, not really a documentary and not really a drama. It’s difficult to identify the target audience as outside of art lovers and possibly Irish history buffs, it will have little appeal. The talent involved is impressive as aside from Vaughan Lawlor, the script was written by Mark O’Halloran (‘Adam & Paul’) and directed by Thaddeus O’Sullivan, currently working on ‘Silent Witness’ in the UK. The project was filmed almost entirely at the Hugh Lane Gallery which means production costs must have been very low so it’s hard to know where the budget went. This is the kind of piece that will be running on a loop at the museum in the years to come and will be an excellent addition and worthy attraction when it does. As a cinematic experience it doesn’t work, so we advise you save your cash and visit the gallery instead.  PAUL O’ROURKE

THE Irish Film Institute has launched a re-digitisation of Irish Pathé news films from the first decades of the 20th century. This is a significant development and will bring moments, events and atmosphere alive to current generations. The launch took place at the IFI’s premises in Temple Bar. The launch was performed by Minister of State Joe McHugh, the Chief Whip. Members of the Fingal Old IRA Commemorative Society, in uniform, attended to provide enhanced atmosphere, background and colour to the event. Cathal Boland, Cathaoirleach of the Society, said: “The clarity of the films now is fantastic. We had the opportunity to view some of the films during the launch, and they are just great. “The project will be muchappreciated by all who are interested in history as it makes watching the film so much easier and enjoyable.”

Funding to aid fight against illegal dumping A NORTHSIDE TD has welcomed news that €20,000 in funding has been approved to tackle illegal dumping in Balbriggan, with a further €36,000 pledged to crack down on litter, dog fouling and graffiti across Fingal. Minister for

Communications, Climate Action and Environment Denis Naughten recently announced the projects nationwide that have been approved for funding under his Department’s 2018 Anti-Dumping Initiative (ADI). Dublin Fingal TD Alan

Farrell (FG) said the aim is to reduce illegal dumping and nuisance litter by providing funding for projects tackling the problem. “The idea is to develop an integrated and effective combined approach with local authorities,

Students have fun at big sports day in Artane THE Annual Sports Day at St David's CBS, Artane, was held last Tuesday (May 8) under blue skies and the sun shone thankfully.  The competitive spirit was alive and well in the morning with students from each year group vying for the title in events including pitch and putt, long jump, shot putt, high jump and sprints.  After a break to refuel with a barbecue and icecream, it was on to the afternoon events. These had a more fun element to them, a Gladiatorstyle joust proving the most popular with the students.  The students also got the chance to test their skills in the penalty shootout and their strength in the tug of war. Rounding up the afternoon events were the obstacle course and sack

DCU to lead journalism project THE DCU Institute for Future Media and Journalism (FuJo) in Glasnevin is to lead a €3.9 million project harnessing digital and data technologies for journalism.

The ‘JOLT’ project ( Journalism and Leadership Transformation) will hire 15 PhD researchers to investigate technical, business, and ethical aspects of contemporary

journalism. The project begins this month and will run for four years. The researchers will be based in academic and industry environments across Europe including

The Irish Times, BBC and the European Journalism Centre. President of Dublin City University Professor Brian MacCraith said: “Dublin City University have always played a

leading role in journalism education and DCU FuJo have continued that pioneering work across research and thought leadership. “This project award is a further powerful

endorsement of this and also a strong reflection of the university’s commitment to remain at the forefront of one of the pillars of democracy.” FuJo director and Project Co-ordinator Dr Jane

Data science projects will develop new protocols and storytelling forms for video, Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality and will also be supported by the Insight Centre for Data Analytics, a €88m Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre. Data based projects will explore algorithms in news, mining online multimedia data, audience analytics, data mining and data visualisation. Other projects will examine the political and ethical implications of contemporary journalism including the ethics of using user-generated content.

Local school welcomes MEPs on Europe Day A NORTHSIDE school welcomed MEPs Lynn Boylan and Brian Hayes to their school to mark Europe Day last Wednesday (May 9).  As part of their CSPE action project, the second year students at Clonturk Community College, on the Swords Road at Whitehall, prepared projects on different member states of the European Union.  The whole school competed in a Kahoot! Quiz about Europe and the European Union, while a European food fair also took place on the day.  Lynn Boylan and Brian Hayes spoke to the students about their

work as members of the European Parliament and the students participated in a question and answer session with the politicians. The students also took part in a whole school handshake for Europe. The handshake symbolised the day that then French Foreign Minister Robert Schuman

Vote NO to the Government’s plan: Abortion for any reason up to at least 12 weeks1 British-style abortion up to 6 months (on unspecified mental health grounds)1 Abortions paid for with your taxes Irish citizens would have no vote on future abortion laws

“The 2013 law3 made it clear – if it wasn’t before – that Irish doctors can always intervene to protect women in pregnancy. We are horrified that some colleagues claim the 8th Amendment endangers women – it does no such thing. It simply protects the lives of unborn babies as far as is practical and prevents abortion on demand.”

Did you know?

In Britain,

97% of abortions

are on healthy babies.

The government’s abortion proposal will also allow this to happen here in Ireland. It allows abortion for ANY reason at all for the first 12 weeks of a baby’s life - because the baby is a girl, or a twin, or even because she or he is just inconvenient. This is abortion on demand. Late-term abortions would also be legal up to 6 months on mental health grounds, just like the British model of abortion. Removing the 8th Amendment will leave EVERY unborn boy or girl with NO constitutional rights before they are born.

Don’t be fooled: this a not “limited” abortion proposal, this is abortion on demand.

NO

The Referendum at a Glance

On May 25th, our community is being asked to shape the fundamental law of the State in a referendum. In making our decision, there are certain legal facts on which both sides of the debate can agree:

� The only constitutional protection for the unborn child is in the Eighth Amendment; � A ‘Yes’ vote will remove all constitutional protection from each unborn child up to birth and in its place, will give the Oireachtas power to legislate for abortion; � The Government has not limited its proposals to exceptional cases. They propose to introduce a wide-ranging right to an abortion not only to twelve weeks but up to six months; � Such limitations on the availability of abortion as might be set could be removed at any time by future Governments or challenged in the courts. The Government has chosen to place a proposal before the People that will have profound consequences for us all. Our society will be judged by how it protects the weakest and most vulnerable and how it cares for mothers who are afraid or in crisis. As lawyers, drawn from every level of the profession, we believe that it would be profoundly unjust to withdraw the existing constitutional protections from the unborn child or to give Government the power that they seek to legislate in this area. That is why we have called for a ‘No’ vote.

An ideally located suburb close to Dublin Airport LOCATION, location, location! Over the years this is a phrase that has tripped off the tongues of house buyers, estate agents and TV presenters of property shows among others. It is a phrase widely used by property experts to show that the three most important factors in determining the desirability of a property are indeed ‘location, location, location’. It’s a phrase that could sit easily too with the popular North Dublin suburb of Santry, located on the doorstep of Dublin Airport and within a few miles of

Dublin City Centre. Santry, which straddles the boundary of Dublin City Council and Fingal Council, is a prime area. This was cemented further with the opening of the M1 Motorway and the Dublin Port Tunnel in the noughties. While Omni Park Shopping Centre is the main shopping hub there are a number of other businesses on either side of the main road that leads to the airport. There is also industrial estates, which feature a number of successful businesses and provide much-needed

employment for local people. The jewel in Santry’s crown is undoubtedly Santry Demesne which features a beautiful lake, a walled garden, tended to all year round by dedicated locals, and it is a fantastic amenity for walkers and runners alike. And speaking of running, well, Santry is, of course, the home of international athletics. Morton Stadium, named after the late Billy Morton, is the iconic landmark in the area. Clonliffe Harriers Athletic Club, formed way back in 1886, have their base in a corner of the famous old stadium. While many people will associate Santry with athletics there are a number of other sports which cater for locals. Among them are Sportslink and the ALSAA sports complex which are

the country, St Kevin’s Boys FC, play their home games on Shanowen Road. Every Easter, the club hosts a prestigious underage tounament where the cream of top European clubs, including Barcelona, play for the Academy Cup.

Focus on SANTRY Clonliffe Harriers - a club on track for continued success 20

NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST 16.05.18

IT is fitting that one of the oldest sports clubs in the country should be based at the national athletics stadium. Clonliffe Harriers Athletic Club was formed in 1886, just two years after the GAA was established. According to the book, ‘Clonliffe Harriers 1886 to 2013’, written by Dominic Branigan, the club came very close to being called by a different name. A group known as ‘The Lads’ founded the club on Richmond Road. They were originally going to call the club Richmond Harriers. However, they realised that there was another club with the same name so they changed it to Clonliffe Harriers because one of ‘The Lads’ lived on Clonliffe Road. The rest is history as they say, and indeed what an illustrious history. More than 130 years later, the Harriers continue to

blaze a trail in the sport of athletics at home and abroad. The club’s continued success should come as no surprise as it’s backboned by an expert group of people who’s primary aim is to foster the talents of young athletic stars. Thankfully the sport of athletics has no age barrier and the adult section at Clonliffe Harriers continues to thrive in tandem with the underage section. In August 2017, Harriers successfully retained the National Track & Field Premier League title they won in 2016. The Irish Life Health National League Final brought the curtain down on the domestic track and field season with the Santry club’s Men’s team emerging as the overall winners. They’ll be aiming for the treble later this year and who would bet against them! Clonliffe Harriers Athletic Club have their headquarters inside Morton Stadium. PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA

Focus on SANTRY The importance of supporting local businesses in Santry 24

NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST 16.05.18

WHILE there have been encouraging signs of late that the economy is turning for the better, this is no time to get complacent. The recession which had the country in a vice-like grip from late 2007/early 2008 thought us all some very harsh lessons. Whether we have fully learned from them remains to be seen! The month-on-month drop in unemployment figures is one of the strong indicators that we’re on course for recovery.   Earlier this month it was announced that unemployment has fallen below 6 percent for the first time in 10 years. The CSO monthly unemployment rate has continued to fall month-on-month over the past year to 5.9 percent in April 2018. However, while these and other signs, including the sharp increase in property prices have been promising, the days of buying that second home in Spain or changing the car every six months are a long way away. Too many people got too badly burnt to even contemplate going down that road again.  Amid all the positivity, though, the hard fact is that local businesses still need support. Indeed there has never

been a more important time to back our local traders and play our part in keeping employment levels up in our communties. Santry is one of those areas that has always strived to offer its citizens the very best in local services.   It has always been renowned as a close-knit area providing a wide range of shops, local services, schools, sports clubs, a cinema and other recreational outlets. From humble beginnings, Santry has grown along with the population explosion and this growth has been more than matched by local businesses that have stepped up to the mark. There is everything you need in the area with local businesses always willing to welcome you with a friendly smile, as well as that all important quality service. In a lot of cases, those serving us from behind the counters are our neighbours, which is another incentive to shop local during these challenging times. Santry has a proud history and great potential and there’s no better time to support the local businesses on our doorstep that have been looking after us in good times and bad.

Kerri Sullivan Dogs Trust has a new foster dog scheme called ‘Home from Home’! The scheme will help the charity care for even more dogs that would benefit from staying in a temporary home environment until they find their forever home. They could be puppies, older dogs, dogs with injuries or medical conditions that need some extra care and attention or dogs that need some help with training or find kennel life stressful. If you’re a dog lover who can offer your home on a temporary basis to a sick, stressed or recuperating dog, then we want to hear from you! How do I become a Foster Carer? It’s a very simple process, you just need to complete an application form, obtain permission from your landlord (if applicable) and upon receipt of your form, you will be invited to attend a short presentation in our Rehoming Centre in Finglas. You will of course get to meet your potential ‘fosterling’ and we will also do a quick home visit. What does Fostering entail?

Dogs Trust have all kinds of dogs available to foster. Besides looking after one of our dogs in your home until they find their Forever Home, you may need to bring your dog or puppy to veterinary visits and liaise with our Volunteer & Foster Home Co-ordinator to arrange to meet

Always keep you dog on the same side as you.

WEEK

DUMBLEDORE The Dublin People Newspaper Group has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogs. This week’s pooch is Dumbledore, a four-year-old German Shepard described by his carers as a lively, silly, bouncy and fun! He loves to play with toys, especially tennis balls and he is a big foodie who will do anything for tasty treats. Dumbledore is an intelligent chap who will make a great student at dog training classes, as he enjoys interacting with everyone and learning new tricks and commands. This handsome Shepherd is very affectionate and likes jumping up on people to say hello and give kisses to everyone, therefore, he will need some impulse control training to help him greet people in a more polite manner. Dumbledore will make a perfect addition to an active family with an interest in positive reward based dog training. This lively and bouncy dog could potentially live with children that are not afraid of big and active dogs. Dumbledore enjoys the company of other dogs and he should be more than happy sharing his future family with another companion. If you have room in your heart for Dumbledore, call Dogs Trust on 01-8791000.

Viviscal Maximum Strength Supplement is scientifically formulated with the all-important nutrients needed for hair, including Biotin (well known for its hair strengthening benefits that also helps to cleanse dry, flaky scalps) and Zinc (improves the health, body and appearance of hair), which help to maintain normal healthy hair growth from within. In addition to this, Viviscal also contains AminoMar C, a marinebased complex that promotes hair growth. Viviscal’s principal ingredient AminoMar C was originally developed in Finland in the 80s, when a professor discovered that the Inuits’ great hair and skin was a result of their fish and protein rich diet. Following the use of Viviscal for six months, the Swedish Alopecia Society found that 95 per cent of patients showed regrowth of hair. Since its launch, Viviscal has been tried, tested and recommended by doctors, dermatologists, trichologists and hair stylists worldwide.

MANE‘N TAIL RRP: €7

Developed in New Jersey almost 50 years ago, Mane‘n Tail started life as a horse grooming product which delivered high gloss, increased nourishment, and stronger hair growth in the animals.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

Motor Assembly in Ireland About The Author MOTORING and aviation writer and historian Bob Montgomery is the author of 12 books as well as being the Curator of the Royal Irish Automobile Club Archive – the only motoring archive in the country. He is the man behind the RIAC Pioneer Run event for cars and motorcycles that has run for more than 100 years and has been the Show Director of the four successful RIAC National Classic Car Shows held in RDS. A former Irish Saloon Racing Champion, he returned to motor racing in 2008 placing third in the Lotus Europe Cup. His articles appear in many publications including The Irish Times, Irish Vintage Scene magazine and Flying in Ireland.

A VITAL, and often underappreciated, stage in the transition of the Republic of Ireland from an agriculture-based to an industrial economy, was Sean Lemass’s innovative scheme that was the real start of the light industrial sector in Ireland in the 1930s. The manufacturing and heavy industry we know today was a distant dream for an emerging Republic in the 1920s and early 1930s. In contrast to today, the country at this time was stagnating, with an economy almost entirely based on agriculture. Two visionaries understood that developing and encouraging a manufacturing sector would be paramount in dragging such a small economy onto the world stage. Sean Lemass, the minister for industry and commerce, along with FM Summerfield, understood that this process needed to be jumpstarted somehow. They conceived the idea of assembling motor cars in the Republic that up to that point had only been carried out in more industrialised countries. Bob Montgomery, author of ‘Motor Assembly in Ireland’ said: “It should be remembered that at the time assembly was introduced, the Free State had virtually no light industry manufacturing. Yet, within six months, there were no fewer than 13 assembly plants in operation together with the necessary component

suppliers. In the years that followed in the region of 52 different makes of cars were assembled here.” To get the process started, in 1933, Sean Lemass provided a tax concession to companies who engaged in assembling cars. The result was that within a year there were 13 assembly plants importing cars. A significant light industrial sector developed around these plants providing tyres, batteries, glass, springs, spark plugs, upholstery, paint and other components. Bob Montgomery adds: “This was the true start of the light manufacturing industry in Ireland that continued until the last cars were produced in 1984 after our accession to the EC. I feel that this is a vital, and often underappreciated, stage in the transition of the Republic of Ireland from an agriculture-based to an industrial economy.” Montgomery's new book is the story of the 50-plus makes of cars that were assembled during the 50-year lifespan of the Industry. With 240 pages and 205 illustrations this book is full of information about the makes of cars assembled, many of them surprising, and the personalities that were involved with them. The book is the result of a joint desire by C.A.R. (whose members include many who worked in the assembly industry) and the Royal Irish Automobile Club Archive, to record this important piece of automotive

history. Larry Mooney, former MDL employee and Chairman of C.A.R said: “Just how difficult this book must have been for Bob can be summed up in an email received the other day from a C.A.R. colleague who said, “I am glad that the subject has been written up while there are still people around who remember the facts, or at least the facts as they remember them. “I think that this book is as a significant historical document that has recorded an important part of our economic heritage.” Arthur Collier, Chairman of the Royal Irish Automobile Club, added: “The RIAC was deeply involved with the introduction of the automobile to Ireland at the turn of the last century. Therefore, I am especially pleased to see yet another important chapter in Irish motoring history committed to paper so that we can all appreciate the vibrant and varied

New book launched in aid of Our Lady’s Hospice COMMUNICATIONS specialist and author Orlaith Carmody has launched her second book, ‘Without You, Living with Loss’. The new book is an intimate collection of letters to loved ones who have passed away. Proceeds from the book will go directly to Our Lady’s Hospice in Harold’s Cross and Blackrock Hospice. The book aims to provide comfort and solace to anyone who has experienced a bereavement, or who is about to face one. By encouraging conversations about loss, Orlaith and the book’s other contributors hope their letters will provide comfort and inspiration. The heart-warming book includes letters from an array of well-known people from the media, arts, business, music, sport and politics who have generously contributed their most intimate thoughts and feelings in the interest of supporting others. Explaining her inspiration for Without You, Living with Loss, Orlaith Carmody said: “Grief is something that we will

She runs a communications training and leadership development consultancy, Gavin Duffy and Associates, alongside her husband and business partner, TV Dragon investor and entrepreneur Gavin Duffy. Orlaith was widowed at the age of 28 when her first husband, Kieran Gleeson, passed away at Harold’s Cross following a threeand-a-half-year struggle with a brain tumour. She has always wanted to honour his memory, and celebrate the work of the Hospice, and Without You – Living With Loss is the fulfillment of that wish.

Education 31 Dunboyne College graduates are celebrated in special book NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST 16.05.18

Dunboyne College of Further Education (DCFE) celebrated its most successful graduates at a Graduate Association event in Dunboyne Castle Hotel on April 26. Special guest speaker was Meath’s 2015 Rose of Tralee, Elysha Brennan, who presented the college’s graduate association publication to the graduates. As part of the celebrations DCFE has published a book profiling 26 successful graduates. The book tells the story of their experiences of DCFE and their progress after graduation. Graduates featured demonstrate the range of QQI accredited courses offered in the college and all graduates recognise the important role Dunboyne College played in their lives and career paths.

Motoring Kia reveals first images of its new all-electric Niro vehicle 32

NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST 16.05.18

KIA unveiled a new all-electric version of the Niro at the fifth International Electric Vehicle Expo in Jeju, Korea recently. Due to receive its European debut at the Paris Motor Show in October 2018, the sporty and versatile Niro EV combines driving enjoyment with eye-catching design and functional utility. Designed at Kia’s design centres in California, USA and Namyang, Korea, the Niro EV incorporates the practicality and appeal of a compact SUV, in a sleek, aerodynamic body with subtly sculptured surfaces. Taking inspiration from the Niro EV Concept unveiled at the 2018 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the Niro EV features an exclusive radiator grille, futuristic air intake and arrowhead-shaped LED daytime running lights. With a ‘Clean and High-tech’ design concept, the slim character line and tapered rear windows emphasise the car’s sleek profile, while allowing greater room for the Niro EV’s muscular wheel arches. The Niro EV is powered by Kia’s next-generation electric vehicle powertrain, using new production technologies developed specifically

for Kia EVs. Equipped with a high-capacity 64 kWh lithium-polymer battery pack, the Niro EV will be able to drive over 450 km on a single charge with zero emissions, or more than 300 km on an optional 39.2 kWh battery system. The Niro EV demonstrates the considerable steps Kia has made over recent years to deliver comfortable, fun-to-drive vehicles that lead the way in zero emissions motoring. As part of its electrification ambitions, Kia plans to introduce 16 electrified cars by 2025, including a fuel cell car along with various hybrids and fully electric vehicles. The Niro EV is due to be introduced to other markets in due course. The use of the electric vehicle (EV) on Irish roads is about to become “the new normal for people in their everyday lives” and “no longer just a progressive, environmental fad,” Jim Gannon, chief executive of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), said recently. That was the prediction of Jim Gannon, chief executive of the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), following the announcement of a public engagement campaign on EVs. The new Niro has been unveiled.

Eclipse puts others in the shade Seán Creedon I OFTEN think that a new car is a bit like a new baby. When a baby is born relations are always trying to see if he/she takes after the mother or father, grandfather or grandmother etc. It’s similar when a group of journalists attend the launch of a new car. Of course with car companies now sharing platforms and other essential parts it’s only natural that there are going to be similarities. When I sat into the Mitsubishi Eclipse Cross I was racking my brain trying think what it reminded me of; it came to me when I looked in the rear-view mirror and saw the divide in the back window which reminded me of the Honda Civic. Now the cars are not comparable in looks or size, but I always associated the ‘divided’ rear window with the Civic. Honda has improved the rear window in the Civic

The Eclipse name has been used by Mitsubishi for almost 30 years, and the bar is certainly not an is-sue in the Eclipse as it’s a decent-sized window and there is a wiper for the top sec-tion. The Eclipse name has been used by Mitsubishi for almost 30 years, but initially it was a sports car. Last year the Japanese company resurrected the name for this com-pact SUV, which is smaller than their best selling Outlander. The car is a result of Mitsubishi’s alliance with Nissan-Renault and

it will be com-peting for sales with the likes of the Nissan Qashqai and Hyundai Tuscon. Now that’s a difficult task, but Mitsubishi has a lot of loyal customers, admittedly with smaller cars like the Colt. The front is impressive looking with attractive styling. At the back there is a slightly sloping look to give a coupe look. Inside there is plenty of space and the elevated driving position will make you feel like the

‘king of the road.’ There is a very useful heads up display for the driver, which should help you stay within the speed limits. On the road there is plenty of power and you can you also use the paddle-shifters at the side of the steering wheel if you want to do ‘more driving.’ However, I found the controls on the dash a bit fiddly. There is Lexuslike high-tech pad with four sections near the electronic handbrake

which is easier to use, once you get used to it. The Blue Tooth technology worked well. The Eclipse has an electronic handbrake and by now we are all familiar with these neat devices which save space. This one definitely does not release automatically when you drive off. A safer idea I think. The boot is massive, but sadly no spare wheel. Normally spares are taken out to re-duce weight which means lower emissions. But emissions are already high, so I don’t know why a spare was not included. But there is a ‘well’ provided, so the advice is to haggle for a spare if buying new. Only available in petrol, with prices starting at €27,900. My automatic CV version starts at €34,900. Emissions are high so road tax is €390. I drove a white version, but it also looks good in red. It’s a fine motor, and well equipped with all the latest motoring technology.

House & Home 35 All-Star awards for K&K Windows NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST 16.05.18

LEADING lights in Irish business descended on Croke Park last month for the Business AllStars competition and one of Ireland’s largest fabricators and installers of uPVC & aluminium

products picked up prestigious awards. K&K Windows Ltd walked away from the event with the All-Star ‘All-star Brand - Windows’ & ‘All-star Entrepreneurial Couple’ accolades.

Speaking at the event, Kieran F Ring, CEO Global Institute of Logistics and deputy chairperson adjudication panel explained why. “The decision to designate K&K Windows

Ltd with ‘All-star Brand - Windows’ & ‘All-star Entrepreneurial Couple’ 2018-19 is based on the score achieved in four rounds of intense competition,” he said. “The application, supported by references, interviews and independent ratings from the ‘mystery shopper’ process left the adjudication panel in no doubt that K&K Windows Ltd is richly deserving of this accreditation. “We would like to extend our sincere

congratulations to all concerned and we wish you every success for the future.” In response to the announcement Sorcha Kenny, managing director, K&K Windows Ltd expressed the company’s sincere thanks for the awards. “Achieving All-Stars accreditation is a great source of pride for us and we look forward to continuing to meet and indeed exceed the standards set by the AllStar programme,” she

added. “The process which led to this accreditation truly stretched us. The structure of the competition required us to put our brand story on paper and gave us the opportunity to reflect on who we are, our growth strategy and above all the value we create for our target audience.

“The opportunity to hear first-hand feedback from our Judge-Mentor, our existing customers, partners and suppliers through the reference module combined with the results from the mystery shopper round was invaluable. continued on page 36

“We would like to thank all at the competition for making the effort to listen to our story, understand and accredit our business and above all help us to promote it. “We look forward to many more meetings through networking and greetings at the All-Star event, and, moreover we would like to extend warm congratulations to all involved.” The competition finals benefited enormously from the atmosphere created at the All-Ireland Summit, which was driven by the three key pillars of knowledge sharing, facilitating new business relationships and the continued improvement of business standards in Ireland. Speaking at the summit, Dr Briga Hynes, Kemmy Business School, University of Limerick, Chairperson Adjudication Panel summed up the entire process. “K&K Windows Ltd has demonstrated an ability to innovate and

Love your Bedroom Event

How to Get that Great Night’s Sleep

This May at EZ Living we’re talking about all things bedroom related with our Love your Bedroom Event this Friday, Saturday & Sunday. This week in particular, we want to make sure that your bed is put to the appropriate use, sleeping. Did you know, that on average we spend at least one third of our lives asleep? Quite the length of time! With that said, read on where we give you our tips on how to get that long lusted after great night’s sleep!

The Perfect Mattress

First things first, an essential part of getting a good night’s sleep is having the right mattress. Unfortunately, a shocking amount of us don’t take this into account. The wrong mattress, or a mattress that’s simply too old can be detrimental to achieving that essential REM sleep! An uncomfortable mattress is proven to have negative effects on your night’s sleep, so why not have a look at our marvelous mattress and bedroom ranges to find your perfect fit.

Beautiful Bedding

Now it’s time to think about the coverings. Yet again, comfort is imperative in getting that good night’s sleep. To achieve that goal, you’ll want to create a bedding situation that will make you want to rush up to bed as soon as you get in the door in the evening. Just remember, good bedding provides warmth, insulation and that much sought after comfort. Here at EZ Living, we cannot recommend a mattress topper more. Along with this, having good quality bed linen to cover your duvet and pillows can only improve your bedding situation and thus, your sleep.  You have the perfect mattress, bed frame and bed linen situation sorted, so add to this with some candles and homely accessories to make your bedroom an authentically ambient  haven that you’ll struggle not  to sleep in!
