WEEKLY NEWSPAPERS

AN BORD Pleanála has rejected plans to build a crematorium chapel and a car park at St Paul’s Cemetery in Glasnevin. The proposal by Glasnevin Trust was granted permission by Dublin City Council in November but a campaign against the plan saw it appealed to the planning board. The highly sensitive site is the burial ground for an estimated almost 4,000 bodies, mostly children and babies, some of whom were just a day old at death. However, objecting to the plan local undertaker, Alan Harmon of Bourke’s Funeral Directors disputed the figures saying they represented less than 10 percent of the total number of people buried there. Glasnevin Trust wanted to build a 1916 Citizens’ Chapel to serve as a permanent memorial to citizens who lost their lives in the Easter Rising. The chapel was also to serve as a monument to all of those interred in unmarked or unpurchased graves in Glasnevin Cemetery. Continued on page 2

Cemetery plan There’s no place like home is rejected Continued from page 1 The council initially rejected a similar proposal for the site but gave the green light to the latest plans, subject to a number of conditions, including that the development would disturb no grave. The plan, which had secured Government funding of around €2 million, sparked anger amongst some locals, and Glasnevin Trust said that given the opposition to the concept, it would no longer proceed with the idea. However, those opposed to the plans wanted An Bord Pleanála to officially reject the application, and

“It was unconscionable that Dublin City Council granted permission for this development in November 2017,” he said. “While Glasnevin Trust bowed to public pressure to withdraw, the proposal to build over the children’s graves, the planning permission would have remained intact for up to five years and the proposal could have been renewed at any time. “Thanks to the vigilance of Alan Harmon, the Bord Pleanala decision means that this cannot now happen. “It was a total aberration to ever consider building a church and car park on this burial site. “The Glasnevin Trust should landscape the site and establish it as an Angel’s Plot to commemorate the thousands of the poor children of Dublin who are buried there.”

members live alongside social and private tenant members, all sharing common amenities. An additional 21 homes will be handed over before the end of 2018. Ó Cualann will also commence building an additional 39 homes, 28 houses and 11 apartments, in Ballymun in the near future with the support of Dublin City Council. Hugh Brennan, CEO of Ó Cualann Cohousing Alliance CLG, spoke about the housing scheme during the key handover ceremony.

“Ó Cualann’s vision is to build communities not just houses, and we hope these 11 families will be comfortable, safe and secure in their new homes,” he said. “The lack of affordable homes in Dublin is at epidemic level, and this is a small push to help resolve this problem. But a home is more than four walls, and we have already seen a cohesive community develop since the first families moved into Baile na Laochra.” Lord Mayor, Nial Ring said he was delighted

to see that Ó Cualann is pushing ahead with its model for affordable housing in Dublin. “I would like to see the ‘Ó Cualann Model’ being replicated and scaled all around the city,” he added. “Land should be seen as a resource for schemes like this and not as a commodity to be sold to the highest bidder. I wish the families well in their new community. “It is because of the Ó Cualann Model many other low and moderate income earners now have a hope that they too may soon own their own home.”

Paul’s garden helps fuel Maxol charity drive THE Maxol Navan Road service station recently raised over €1,000 for AWARE, the charity that provides support and information for people suffering with mental health issues. Maxol Licensee, Paul Brady, hosted an open event in his own impressively curated garden for the third year running to help raise the funds. Over two days, 80 people visited Paul’s urban garden near the Navan Road service station. As well as working with Maxol for 25 years, Paul is a passionate gardener, studying horticulture at the National Botanic Gardens in Glasnevin, which is just down the road from his service station. Paul’s garden has been a work in progress for four years and boasts over

1,000 varieties of plants. Tucked away in an urban corner of Dublin, he has made sure that the garden works with its environment, carefully selecting plants that flourish in the shadows cast by the surrounding buildings. Paul is always thinking of ways to fuse his passion for gardening with his career at Maxol. For instance, he recycles metal bins from the service station as planters. So, when it came to raising money for Maxol’s charity partner AWARE, Paul immediately thought of opening his garden up to the community. The Maxol AWARE partnership aims to promote positive mental health in communities nationwide. “I’m thrilled that an idea I had three years ago to open up my garden has managed to contribute to

such a good cause,” said Paul who has raised over €3,500 for the charity. “This garden has been a passion of mine for years

so it’s great that the whole community can use it to get together. “I’m a firm believer that enjoying a bit of greenery

is great for your wellbeing so I’m really proud to raise funds for a mental health charity like AWARE.” Through the charity

partnership the Maxol Group supports the full range of important services delivered by AWARE in Ireland.

Help make a safer Ballymun LOCALS in Ballymun are being urged to have their say on making the area a better place to live and work. The call comes from Safer Ballymun - a partnership between the Ballymun locals, An Garda Síochána and Dublin City Council – which wants to create a new strategy on what needs to be done to create a safer environment for all. Locals can help by telling Safer Ballymun what they think is a threat to safety in Ballymun and what’s needed to make the area safer. No idea or observation is too big or too small and a public meeting is being held in the Civic Centre to get things started. If you can’t make the meeting you can send a submission to the strategy by emailing Leona.fynes@ dublincity.ie or post a letter with your opinions to Leona Fynes, Ballymun Civic Centre, 2nd Floor, Main Street, Ballymun, Dublin 9.

Saddle up for Giro D’Jigsaw

Rebecca Murphy, Mike Mansfield and John Williams from the Jigsaw team are joined by Laura Scott (centre right) from BoxyMo to launch the BoxyMo Giro D’Jigsaw.

CYCLISTS are being invited to take part in a 470km ride across Ireland for three days from Friday, September 28, to support youth mental health. The BoxyMo Giro D’Jigsaw aims to raise money for Jigsaw to support the mental health of Ireland’s young people at its centres, including those in Dublin city and Dublin 15. Nial O’Higgans, a participant in last year’s event, says every home in Ireland has been impacted on by mental health challenges at one time or another. “I was looking for a challenge I could take on to help me make a difference and the BoxyMo Giro D’Jigsaw really fitted the bill,” he said. “From the moment you register to the moment you set out on the road, Jigsaw support and encourage you through your fundraising, training and completing the three days in the saddle.

“The camaraderie amongst everyone taking part was brilliant, the different stories shared, the laughs and craic both on and off the bike. “The friendships I made were the highlight of my Giro, and 12 months on we’re all still in touch and regularly meet at sportives around the country.” The BoxyMo Giro D’Jigsaw is aiming to raise over €50,000 from this year’s event to support Jigsaw’s work improving the lives of young people experiencing mental health difficulties. Starting in Galway on Friday, September 28 cyclists will travel for three days through communities all across Ireland where Jigsaw services are located - including counties Roscommon, Meath, Dublin and Offaly. Participants will experience the life of a cycle pro with support provided throughout, and the chance to get their hands on a coveted

BoxyMo Giro D’Jigsaw cycling jersey, which is only presented to those who have taken on the challenge. “Last year’s BoxyMo Giro D’Jigsaw raised an incredible €54,000, but we want to smash that this year,” said Justin Mcdermott from Jigsaw. “You can sign-up to take part online now at jigsaw. ie/giro. “We’re asking everyone across Ireland to show their support by sponsoring family members, friends and colleagues who are taking part, and to come and cheer them along as the BoxyMo Giro D’Jigsaw pedals its way through communities across Ireland.” Places on the Giro D’Jigsaw are limited, and people can register to take part online now at jigsaw.ie/giro. Jigsaw Services give young people a place they can visit for free and confidential support from trained mental health professionals.

Man jailed for crazed crime spree Brion Hoban and Fiona Ferguson A LOCAL man who wielded large knives in two robberies during a week long “spree” fuelled by alcohol and drugs has been jailed for six years. Jordon Boyle (21) from Blanchardstown held a machete up to a woman's face and told a cashier “this woman's life depends on you” during one of the robberies. Boyle was caught after returning to the scene of one of the crimes and telling a staff member he had robbed the garage the previous week. He was later arrested after attempting to hijack a luxury car in the same garage forecourt. Boyle, of Sheephill Green, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to two counts of robbery, one of false imprisonment and one of attempted unlawful seizure of a vehicle on

dates between November 7 2016 and November 15 2016. Judge Cormac Quinn said the aggravating factors in this case were the impact on the victims and that it was “clear the accused went on a spree that was probably fuelled by alcohol and cocaine”. He said the mitigating factors were Boyle's age, his guilty pleas, his family history, apology and remorse, and his status as an enhanced prisoner. He imposed concurrent sentences totalling six years. Garda Michael Parry Jones told Gerardine Small BL, prosecuting, that on November 7 2016 Boyle entered the Esso Garage on Navan Road with a butcher's knife and screamed at a woman in the store to get onto the ground. Boyle began to kick the security glass and demand access to the till. He stole from the till and pressed his knife to

the head of the cashier, ordered her to get onto the ground, then stole a bottle of vodka as he fled. Gda Jones said that on the evening of November 14 a woman in her 60s, out walking her dog in Castleknock, was grabbed from behind by Boyle, who held a machete in front of her. He pushed her into a Topaz petrol station where he put the machete to her face and told the cashier “this woman's life depends on you”, before demanding money. The cashier, afraid the woman would be hurt, handed over money. Gardai were alerted and CCTV downloaded. On November 15 at the Esso Garage on Navan Road a shop assistant noticed an aggressive male drinking outside the shop. This male told him he had robbed the shop the previous week and the staff member was surprised that he knew

details of the robbery. He later saw this man jump atop the hood of a Bentley that had pulled into the garage and try to pull the door open. Boyle demanded money from the driver and threatened to take the car. The driver reversed the car with Boyle still trying to get the door open before driving off. Gardaí were alerted and Boyle was arrested. His home was searched and clothing similar to the culprit's from the first robbery was recovered. Boyle has 25 previous convictions including two previous robberies. He was on bail for one of these robberies at the time of these incidents. The woman who had been falsely imprisoned by Boyle during the second robbery said in her victim impact statement that she had nightmares for months following the incident and woke up

remembering the “cold steel of the machete” running across her face. Oisin Clarke BL, defending, submitted that the offences had been committed under the influence of drugs or alcohol and that his client had been on a “serious binge” during the last two

E ducogym celebrates three awards as the Educogym Model is getting noticed. Educogym have won a third award in the space of a few months. This recognition comes after 11 years of working with thousands all over Ireland, the UK and Belize. The Irish Enterprise Award for Best Physical Fitness Centre was awarded in February and now Educogym have received the Worldwide Business Review Global Excellence 2018 Award. These were preceded by the Global GetEnergy Award for Localisation in Belize (along with Belize Natural Energy). This is recognition of the contribution of a company in supporting local education and positively impacting the community. The difference with Educogym is that the Educo Model is at the core of its operation. It is the desire of Educogym to get great results for its clients yes but also to educate the client in training, nutrition and in how to apply their mind to the outcomes they want. This is the Educo Model The Educo Model is being used in Educogyms around the world to assist clients, their

families and ultimately their communities. There are more gyms and even more trainers than there's ever been yet obesity is continuing to rise. Change is needed of course but it starts with you the person who wants to change their shape. Educogym have trained thousands to get in to great shape by demonstrating the science behind training, nutrition, weight loss and most importantly, how to succeed in this area. That is to say how to get the outcome you want (weight loss, get fit get, healthy etc). So many really want to become healthier but because they tell themselves they are "too old, too unfit, too overweight, too stressed, too tired, too skinny, too busy too useless at diets, too injured too sick or too sore", they either don't start or they fail very quickly.

Entertainment Smokie bring the big one to Bulmers Live at Leopardstown 10

SMOKIE have racked up platinum albums across Europe in a career that has spanned over four decades. Probably best known in this country for their gigantic hit single ‘Living Next Door to Alice’, Smokie have played in stadiums around the world, to a staggering 500,000 people in Kiev’s main square and in places as far flung as Ulan Bator, Mongolia, where they sold out two nights in the capital’s 40,000 capacity stadium. They are up next, on Thursday, August 9 at the successful 2018 Bulmers Live at Leopardstown Summer Series of gigs where the likes of Paddy Casey along with his daughter and stunning vocalist, Saoirse have taken the stage alongside Paul Young and Keywest for one of Dublin’s fastest growing and most exciting nights out. Now in its ninth year, Bulmers Live at Leopardstown has established itself as Ireland’s premier racing and live music event, bringing superb international acts to the racecourse over the years. Sister Sledge, The Human League, Fun Lovin’ Criminals, Johnny Marr, and Happy Mondays have lined up alongside some of the best live Irish acts

of our times, including The Boomtown Rats, Hot House Flowers, The Coronas and Ash. Joining this stellar list of names this summer will be a band very dear to hearts of Irish music lovers over the decades, The Waterboys. Mike Scott was already a legend before he moved to Ireland to record and release the iconic album, ‘Fisherman’s Blues’. Already his album ‘This is the Sea’, with its international hit ‘The Whole of the Moon’ had marked Scott as an inspirational songwriter for his generation. But with Fisherman’s Blues, The Waterboys almost single-handedly revived an interest in Irish traditional music not seen for a couple of generations. Staking out bold, new territory with fresh approaches and inspirational collaborators has been the defining factor for Scott. Their new album ‘Out Of All This Blue’ – the band’s twelfth and first double album - is perhaps the most brilliantly daring and accomplished reinvention of The Waterboys to date. The Waterboys will play the concluding event for Bulmers Live at Leopardstown on Thursday, August 16. As always, the

performances will be preceded by a top-class card of horse racing and a wide selection of ticket options available for everyone. Fom the great value ‘Summer Bundle’ at only €30 which includes admission to the racing and concert, Bulmers drink, festival food option and €5 tote bet to the ‘Pavilion Party’ where you have a table reserved in a premium suite overlooking the racetrack and a three-course meal for only €70. Leopardstown Racecourse is only 20 minutes from Dublin City Centre on the Luas Green line, with dedicated shuttle buses running from the Sandyford stop. Leopardstown is located off exit 14 or exit 15 on the M50 southbound or exit 15, M50 Northbound. Ample free parking is available onsite. For tickets and hospitality options go to www.leopardstown.com or call the Leopardstown ticketline on 01 2890500. There are also discounts for advance group bookings available online. TRACK RECORD WITH TERRY UTTLEY, FOUNDER MEMBER OF SMOKIE: 1. Most memorable moment in Dublin?

Smokie will be headlining Bulmers Live at Leopardstown. Having my first pint of Guinness on Irish soil out of a puter mug in the Berkley Court Hotel in 1979. 2. Name your favourite place to visit in Dublin and why. Always Temple Bar, it’s so vibrant all day long. 3. When you're not playing music, what else do you do? I always seem to be

re-packing my bag for the next trip as we only get to spend a few days per week at home. Other than that, it’s just day to day things that most folks do. Restaurant, pub with friends and a few sunshine trips when free time allows. 4. First album you bought and last album you bought? ‘Beatles for Sale’ and

‘Mission to Mars’ by my favourite band, Styx. 5. Who are your influences? I love AOR. Songs with substance and great harmonies. That’s exactly why I love Styx. They have given music far more credible than the two hits ‘Babe’ and ‘Boat on the River’. 6. With you fronting, who would make up your

ideal band (dead or alive) Tommy Shaw (Styx), Mick Fleetwood, Jon Lord (Purple) Graham Bonnet (various). 7. Any tips on life ? Smile and always smell good!! 8. If you were to name a horse for a race, what would it be and why? Past the line. Always in with a chance if it gets that far.

Button Factory date for the DMA’s AUSTRALIAN trio The DMA’s are on their way to the Button Factory Dublin for a gig there on August 31. The DMA’S started this tour in a pub, on a hot Oz summer’s evening. It was a moment of calm at the start of 2018 for a young band who are about to find themselves spending months on the road, pulled around the world, again, by an album of beautifully honed, passionately emotive rock’n’roll songs. Raise a glass and prime your ears – not to mention your heart – for DMA’S

gloriously uplifting second album, ‘For Now’. The Sydney trio’s 2016 debut ‘Hills End’ was a Top 10 smash in Australia and a wordof-mouth hit in the UK – one that took them to Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury, Latitude, two Reading/Leeds Festivals, and multiple gigs in between. It was a success that took Tommy O'Dell (vocals), Johnny Took (guitars) and Matt Mason (guitarist and backing vocalist) by surprise. “We played festivals all around the world,” says

Took. “And the jump from when we played Reading and Leeds the first time to the second time was incredible. Seeing how it had grown in that year was amazing. But even that first time was a great experience for a young band. “And as we toured, we met and heard all these other bands, listened to a lot of music in the car and on the bus, had all these great experiences… And all that fed into the second album.” “Production-wise it’s a bit more advanced than

stuff on Hills End,” adds O’Dell, “but still not too far away from the first album. “It’s a rock’n’roll tune, but it’s also got a bit more depth. So, we thought it would be a nice bridging track between old stuff and the stuff that was to come.” “The response from UK fans has been pretty amazing to be honest,” says Took, “and I think it’s because they recognised we had a bit of that Britpop sound. A British guy came up to me when we played in Perth in Western Australia, and

The DMA’s will be pushing all the right Buttons at the Factory. “Maybe a lot of young he was like: ‘I really love how you guys hark back to British bands are scared to do that because it the best of the Roses and played such a big part of Oasis.’

Local teens attend Boston summit MEMBERS of the Foróige Clubhouse project in Blanchardstown were in Boston, Massachusetts for The Clubhouse Network’s 2018 Teen Summit last week. Adam King, (17), Amir Serajpour, (15) and Patrick O’Sullivan, (17) joined up with over 150 other teenagers from 16 countries for the Clubhouse Network’s biannual teen summit that took place from July 31 to August 5. The three locals have been members of the Foróige Clubhouse for a number of years and were chosen to attend the summit because of their enthusiasm and commitment to learning and for their work in mentoring younger members. The Clubhouse Network is an international community of 100 Clubhouses located in 19 countries, providing youth with life-changing opportunities for 25 years. During the summit representatives from countries including

Colombia, Ireland, Israel, Jordan, New Zealand, the Philippines, South Africa, and the United States came together to explore creative technologies and see how they can be applied to important social issues, both now and in the future. The youth ambassadors were all chosen for their outstanding peer leadership and efforts to give back to their community. The theme for the 2018 Teen Summit was ‘Stand Up, Speak Out, Change the World’ encouraging youth to engage in collaborative, cross-cultural activities that contribute to their personal growth. After another recent teen summit, 91 percent of the youth attendees felt that the experience improved their cultural and racial understanding of others. This year, the summit took take place at Boston University, where students participated in daily community meetings, topic tracks, and evening activities.

“The goal of the Teen Summit is to inspire Clubhouse youth not only to build hands-on fluency in technology but also to become self-motivated, confident learners through collaborative experiences that spark their interest, expand life skills, and help them become global citizens,” said Clubhouse Network Executive Director, Gail Breslow. “We are both thrilled and honoured to have these young leaders from all over the world joining us in Boston for what is sure to be an inspiring week.” Foróige is the leading youth organisation in Ireland. The charity works with over 50,000 young people and 5,500 adult volunteers annually, through a network of more than 650 youth clubs & cafés, 160 targeted projects and national programmes such as Entrepreneurship (NFTE), Health & Wellbeing, Citizenship and Entrepreneurship.

DOGS TRUST CANINE COLUMN

Taking your dog to the vet Kerri Sullivan NOT many dogs enjoy a trip to the vets so we have a few tips to make it less stressful for you and your dog: Get your dog used to being ‘examined’ by incorporating it into his training. Lift up his ear for example and then give him a treat for allowing you to do so, and then progress this over a number of days to looking in his ear for a few seconds. When the vet examines him, it won’t feel so alien to him and he is far more likely to tolerate the examination. Take your dog to the vets regularly to be weighed and have some tasty treats for the vet or vet nurse to give him for sitting nicely on the weighing scales. Not only will this allow you to keep an eye on his weight, he will associate the vets with a pleasant experience. If

A check-up doesn’t have to be stressful for your dog. you only ever bring him when he is sick or needs a vaccination, he will associate visiting with unpleasantness. If possible, take your dog for a long walk prior to your visit so he is tired, has toileted properly and is more relaxed. Keep him on a short lead while at the vets so he is less likely to bound over to other pets that might be ill or feel threatened. If his visit allows it, treat him with nice high value treats for staying close. Keep your focus on him

and speak to him in a low, calm voice. If your dog is reactive to other dogs, or is reactive when he is on the lead, ring in advance and ask if there is a quiet time available where there will be less or no other dogs present. Some veterinary practices allow owners with reactive dogs to enter via another door or wait in a separate room so as not to stress out the dog, his owner and the other pets waiting to be seen.

Leave plenty of time to get to the vets in case there is a traffic jam as this will help you keep your own stress levels to a minimum and driving too fast can contribute to your dog’s anxiety and even cause motion sickness. Listening to a talking book or classical music can be very calming for your dog, so choose a suitable station or have a CD handy in the car. Calming doggie CDs are available online. Spraying Adaptil, a calming pheromone for dogs, on your dog’s harness and in your car 15 minutes before setting off can help calm your dog as can the use of anxiety vests – both can be found online or in pet shops.

Training your dog to do simple tricks can really help in the vets as fun is incompatible with fear so bring lots of tasty treats and ask for lots of high fives, sits, downs etc, which may even help other owners relax looking at your wonderful pooches’ repertoire of tricks! If your dog gets extremely stressed out attending the vet, speak to your local practice, as they may be in a position to offer a home visit or in extreme circumstances offer sedative medication that can be taken prior to the visit. Also speak to a reputable behaviourist to see if there is a training method that can help with this.

Education 13 New credit union survey reveals back-to-school money problems NORTHSIDE PEOPLE WEST 08.08.18

DUBLIN has the highest percentage of parents in Ireland who say they will be forced to deny their children certain back-toschool items this year. The annual school costs survey by the Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) revealed that well over a third of parents in Dublin (37 percent) admitted they will have to cut items such as new shoes or gym gear from the school budget. Of this group, almost three quarters (74 percent) say they will have to deny their children extracurricular activities, while 45 percent say new shoes will get the cut. This compares with the national average of 31 percent of parents saying they will have to deny their children certain school items. More than two thirds of Dublin parents (67 percent) admitted that back-to-school costs were a financial burden, on a par with parents nationally. The study also showed that well over a third of parents in Dublin (37 percent) say are getting into debt to cover back-toschool costs. This is slightly more than the national average of 36 percent. However 42 percent of Dublin parents say they are getting into debt of between €400 and €500,

compared with 25 percent nationally. Of concern is the fact that of those Dublin parents in debt, almost a third (32 percent) say they have used a moneylender in an effort to cover school costs. Nationally the finding was 27 percent. Of those parents in Dublin who have used moneylenders, half say they have borrowed between €400 and €500. Three in ten borrowed between €100 and €200. A significant 60 percent said they would use a moneylender again to cope with school costs. “Despite the current recovery of our economy, Dublin families continue to struggle to cope with the cost of sending their children to school,” said Paul Bailey, ILCU Head of Marketing and Communications. “We are seeing increasing numbers of parents saying they are in debt, and a rise in the numbers saying they are turning to moneylenders. “I would really encourage these parents to talk to their local credit union, even where they feel they have a poor credit history. “Credit unions are responsible lenders who will ensure that their members do not borrow beyond their means and will work with

them so that repayments are realistic for their circumstances.” Bailey says using moneylenders, some who charge APR rates as high as 188 percent, will lead to a recurring cycle of unnecessary debt and irrational borrowing. “We would seriously urge parents to reconsider going this route,” he continued. “A number of our credit unions in Dublin offer the Personal MicroCredit Scheme or ‘It Makes Sense’ loan that is specifically designed to assist social welfare recipients who feel they have no option but to borrow from a moneylender. “Our welcoming staff are always on-hand to answer any queries in relation to this loan, and to offer guidance on household budgeting and financial planning.” Nationally, the study found that overall, parents say costs have fallen somewhat since last year. Parents say they are now spending €999 per primary-school child, a €49 decrease on 2017. For secondary school children, parents say the cost per child has fallen €22 to €1,379. This was due mainly to falls reported in the prices for extracurricular activities, transport and

after-school care. According to parents, the biggest spend for primary school children was again extra-curricular activities at €153 per child followed by school lunches at €142 and afterschool care at €140. For secondary school, parents say the most expensive item is again books at €200, followed by uniforms at €179 and school lunches and transport both costing €175 each. Nationally, the survey also found that almost half of parents (46 percent) say that costs are their biggest school-related worry, well ahead of concern that children won’t settle or make friends (15 percent). Four in ten say they are under pressure to buy branded goods and other items for their children. This figure was higher for parents of secondaryschool children with over half (54 percent) feeling the pressure, compared with 39 percent of primary school children. In general, just over a third of parents say they will have to sacrifice spending on family holidays to meet school costs with 22 percent saying they will have to cut spending on household bills. And 15 percent said spending on food will have to suffer.

Health Youths speak out on mental health issues 14

YOUNG people from Dublin recently joined other teens from all over Ireland to speak out on issues that affect their mental health and wellbeing, at an event held at the Croke Park Conference Centre. Youth Advocate Programmes (YAP) Ireland hosted the event. The young people, who are all participants on the YAP programme, have been working on projects throughout the year on the theme of ‘Mind Yourself, Mind Each Other: Young People Speak Out on Improving Mental Health and Wellbeing.’ The theme came directly from the young

people themselves from discussions on what they thought was the most important issue affecting young people today. Speaking at the event, Siobhán O’Dwyer, YAP Ireland chief executive, said: “The issue of youth mental health and wellbeing and how we can all work to improve it, is so important to the young people we work with. “They are all very aware of the things that can damage their mental health, such as school stress, bullying, poverty, substance abuse, family breakdown and social media. “The projects they have presented focus on the problems they are facing

Fibromyalgia and OsteOpathy

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

within the community and on how we can work to solve these problems. “The young people have been working with YAP staff on these projects throughout the year with all the ideas coming from the young people themselves.” Some of the projects presented included a presentation from parents in Dublin who started a fitness group; artwork made by young people in Meath; a song written and performed by a young person from Louth; sculptures made by young people in Cavan; an animation made by young people from all over the country about the hurdles they face that challenge their mental health and how when they can get help from family, friends or professionals things can become easier to manage; and a project from young people in Dublin who met with the gardaí to discuss how their interactions with the justice system can affect their mental health and wellbeing.” Ms O’Dwyer said the projects represented the wide range of experiences

“It’s wonderful to see young people who have faced such difficulty in their lives work together and create such powerful and inspirational projects and to get the opportunity to present them to key decisionmakers such as Aidan Waterstone, Tusla and Dr Fergal Lynch, Secretary General of the Department of Children and Youth Affairs.” For more information about YAP, visit www. yapireland.ie

National mental health app ia sought A DUBLIN senator has called for the rolling out of a national online psychological counselling service to help teens and young people in distress. Senator Catherine Noone said: “Ireland has the fourth highest level of teen suicide in the EU according the most recent UNICEF report on the issue. “This is clearly wholly unacceptable, and whilst I fully commend the work of Ireland’s national strategy to reduce suicide -‘Connecting for Life’ – I believe even more can be done - especially in the area of teen suicide. “Currently there are two eMental health

Senator Catherine Noone (FG) services working with support from the HSE which provide online counselling service to people aged 18 plus who are in psychological distress. These are Turn2me and MyMind.ie. “However, I believe

more could be done to expand the online counselling services to under 18s and promote the services nationwide. “Turn2Me, reported 20,000 visits to the site with over 80 percent new visitors - and 50,000 page views per month. On average there are approximately 200 new users registered with Turn2Me on a weekly basis, with membership now reaching just short of 73,000.” Senator Noone said this illustrates the effectiveness of reaching distressed young people most of whom are highly tech savvy - via online services in their own homes.

“What is needed now is the rolling out of a national platform and online counselling service specifically for teens which could be promoted in all post primary schools in the country,” she added.

“It will of course be paramount to create a safe and discreet platform for teens to access online services but I believe with adequate funding and an integrative approach with the HSE this can be achieved.”

Often I find that a good way to get a feel of what a car looks like to passers by and fellow motorists is if you park the car in front of a glass building. Those LED lights are class. By the way you need never touch the lights switch in the C-Class, the lights come on when needed and switch off once you apply the central locking. I also like the way the buttons to adjust the heating on the front seats are located on the front doors. Very discreet. As with most cars the middle passenger in the back seat will have to have a foot on both sides of the transmission tunnel.

When you apply the central locking there is a very mild beep of the horn to confirm that the car is locked. If you live on a quiet street, it could annoy slight-sleeping neighbours late at night.

Firstly, pick certain parts of your garden or outdoor space to do different things. By focusing on a small area, it is easier to mirror your interior. It makes sense to begin with obvious living room pieces, so to really set the tone an outdoor sofa is a must.

Then, add some softness to ensure this is an outdoor place where you will be happy to curl up and chill out. Interior cushions and blankets are nicer than those designed for the outdoors, and while you could take some from your living room, you may not want to 'undress' your interiors. So, consider investing in some extra cushions and throws for use outside and when it is time for them to go indoors, they can always find a home in a guest room or on a window ledge. When it comes to outdoor seating, garden benches are also worth thinking about. They make an attractive alternative to dining chairs and can take the place of a sofa.

NORTHSIDE PEOPLE WEST 08.08.18

The most iconic of all garden benches was created by architect Sir Edwin Lutyens in the early 20th century and Neptune's Lutyens bench in sturdy, low maintenance teak, has been inspired by this majestic statement seat. And when the sun goes down it shouldn't mean lights out for your room outdoors. Some simple candles sitting in glass hurricane lanterns and dotted around the garden are an easy way to create gentle and enchanting pools of light. Clusters of pillar candles on plates, like Neptune's Corinium platter, are another lovely touch and a help if you like to dine by candlelight. So, when the summer night falls you can continue to enjoy the al fresco life in your living room with the roof down. See www.neptune.com for Irish stockists.

EXPERIENCED PART - TIME FORK LIFT DRIVER REQUIRED

Cormac Spencer THIS column frequently discusses the importance of a good transport infrastructure for job creation and the economy as a whole. However, having an effective communications infrastructure is equally, if not more important to Ireland in terms of our ability to do business at home and compete with others abroad. Think of how far communications infrastructure has come in the last decade or so and how it has impacted on the way business is done. It’s 11 years since the first iPhone was released to the market. Things are moving quickly and the ability to keep abreast of changes is very important to businesses and the country as a whole if we want to attract trade and remain competitive. It isn’t encouraging to read that Ireland ranked behind 25 European countries in terms of broadband speeds according to a recent study by M-Lab. Further bad news emerged last week when a member of the consortium with the only bid to implement the National Broadband Plan (NBP) withdrew.

There is a dearth of broadband coverage in many areas of the country. PHOTO: BIGSTOCK While that decision may work out for the best in the long term, (value for money is hardly assured when there is just one bidder for a large infrastructure project), it raises a high level of uncertainty that the only strategy to increase broadband coverage and broadband speeds across the country will be implemented any time soon. Although it has become integral to business, there is a dearth of broadband coverage in many areas of the country. While ‘broadband blackspots’ in rural areas are well reported, even the big cities aren’t served properly in terms of access to high speed broadband. Dublin City and suburbs have 80 percent coverage while

Caretaker/Janitor commencing Monday August 20th

Please forward a letter of application and cv with references and details of referee’s (name, role, contact no.) by post to The Principal, Hartstown Community School Hartstown Road, Clonsilla, Dublin 15

Limerick City and suburbs have only 71 percent broadband coverage. So what does all of this really mean and why does it matter? In brief, it means companies don’t have an online shopfront to attract clients and can’t trade online with customers in Ireland and abroad (those Irish customers will look to sites in the UK and Europe to spend their money). It means that small businesses and farmers in rural areas may have to travel to the nearest town to lodge forms, that students may not have access to online learning resources, that foreign

investment is discouraged (who wants to set up a business if you can’t be sure your email will reach its destination!) and it means problems for tourists who want strong Wi-Fi speeds in their hotel. Before its full implementation was thrown into doubt last week, the NBP was due to bring high speed broadband to 540,000 houses and businesses in the country by 2020. The cost to the State would have been between €1bn-1.5bn. This is absolute peanuts in terms of the benefits the country will reap from increased

productivity and increased opportunities to do business, so it’s imperative that immediate steps are taken to ensure the plan gets back on track. It’s fully understandable that a small business wouldn’t want to throw money away on a website when the internet connection to its premises and the surrounding areas is sub par, but if the NBP is effectively implemented, then SMEs need to move fast and get connected. Today’s customers want to trade with ease and efficiency without wasting hours of their time. By increasing broadband coverage, bettering our digital infrastructure and getting Irish businesses online we will increase trade, create jobs, attract investment and ensure Ireland’s competitiveness into the future. Like the broadband we want, we should get it all done Super Fast. •Cormac Spencer is a Recruitment Consultant/ Director at Link Personnel Services. Visit www. linkpersonnel.ie or call 01-8456312.

Happenings

A few things worth checking out this week

NORTHSIDE PEOPLE WEST 08.08.18

PLAYSTIVAL

ROCK ‘N’ ROLL DUBLIN HALF MARATHON The sixth annual Rock ‘n’ Roll Dublin Half Marathon returns the weekend of August 11-12. It serves as the Irish National Half Marathon Championships and features the best of local talent with live bands entertaining participants along the course. The 2017 event saw record-breaking numbers as 15,000 runners from 57 different countries took part in the event across the four distances. The 5k run starts at DIT Grangegorman at 10am on Saturday and the half marathon begins at 8.30am on Sunday before the 10k at 9.20am and the family fun run at 12.15pm. The Blizzards headline the Finish Festival on Sunday.

DUBLIN COMIC CON

Returning for its sixth year, Dublin Comic Con is back at the Convention Centre in Dublin from August 10-12 with the best of pop culture and sci-fi from guests and sets to stalls, traders, artists and panels. Whether you go to find rare collectibles, meet Hollywood actors and local artists, have your portfolio reviewed by industry professionals or simply cosplay there will be something to keep you entertained. Visit www.dublincomiccon.com for more information.

A more “innocent” approach to games and play will be the emphasis of a new summer festival for children and their parents taking place at the Airfield Estate in Dundrum next week. Ireland’s largest urban farm will be transformed over the weekend of Saturday, August 11 and Sunday 12 as Playstival with The Happy Pear arrives. Dedicated to play, fun and imagination, the focus is on “going back to basics” with no fancy technology or screens.

ORSON WELLES FILM EVENT

To coincide with the release of a documentary, ‘The Eyes of Orson Welles’ on August 17, and the visit of its director to the Irish Film Institute on August 22, the IFI presents a season of films from August 11-29. The films examine the work of Orson Welles within a broader cinematic context. The films selected have been split into three distinct categories: films that inspired Welles, films inspired by Welles and work from Welles himself. Tickets for the Orson Welles season are now on sale from the IFI Box Office on 01-6793477 or from www.ifi.ie.

100 YEARS OF SUFFRAGE EXHIBITION

LUCIENNE DAY: LIVING DESIGN EXHIBITION A new touring exhibition showcasing the pioneering work of designer Lucienne Day, considered to be one of the most important and influential women textile designers of the 20th century, is running at Dublin Castle’s Coach House Gallery until September 15. ‘Lucienne Day: Living Design’, which is open daily from 10am to 5pm (free admission), tells the story of Lucienne’s design career unfolding in a sequence of photographs drawn from the archives of the Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation.

The Houses of the Oireachtas, in collaboration with the National Museum of Ireland and with special thanks to the SheehySkeffington family, has opened a public exhibition, ‘Votes for Women: Suffrage and Citizenship’, which will run until October 19. Free public tours are available on weekdays when the Dáil and Seanad are not sitting. These tours begin at 10.30am, 11.30am, 2.30pm and 3.30pm. Visitors can secure a tour place by booking in advance by contacting the Oireachtas at event.desk@oireachtas.ie or by phoning 016183271/3781.

This August, kids can visit GPO Witness History free of charge (when accompanied by a paying adult) making it the ideal day out for the entire family. The offer is valid for up to four children until August 31. Located in the historic GPO building on O’Connell Street in Dublin, the centre is a great place for the whole family to learn about the seismic events that shaped Ireland’s modern history.
