Housing dream finally comes true Jack Gleeson

F

IVE local families have been given the keys to their new homes in a Poppintree housing development that could become a template for affordable homes around the country. Minister for Housing, Eoghan Murphy, handed over the keys at a ceremony last week that marked the end of an ambitious project that dates back to 2002.

▪▪ CEO of Ó Cualann Cohousing Alliance Hugh Brennan addresses the crowd at last week’s ceremony.

It’s a great IKEA! IKEA has teamed up with St Joseph's Junior National School in Ballymun to help teach some young pupils how to ‘Live Lagom’. Lagom - Swedish for ‘just the right amount - encourages things like recycling and not wasting water, food or energy. To bring the concept to life for the children of St Joseph’s, Ikea supplied a class of six and seven-year-olds with a hydroponics set to grow lettuce leaves. CONTINUED ON PAGE 2

It’s a great IKEA! CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 They also supplied recycle bins, a basin for the sink and a timer for the water tap. The Live Lagom project has been going on for two years worldwide and principal of St Joseph’s, Jennie McGee, thinks it’s a great idea. “It’s been a great way to introduce the concept of sustainability to the children alongside early learning on the importance of nature and the environment,” she said. “This is especially important for communities based in urban areas such as ours and they had a lot of fun with all of the items provided by Ikea!”

Housing dream finally comes true CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1 Back then, a housing co-op scheme was established by locals in Ballymun who wanted to establish a local Irish speaking community. Members of the co-op paid deposits of €5,000 for homes and planning permission for 40 homes was obtained in 2007. However, the project stalled and was eventually taken over by O'Cualann CoHousing Alliance. Plans received another setback in 2015 when it was announced that modular homes were to be built on the site, but Ó Cualann CoHousing Alliance worked with Dublin City Council officials to ensure Ireland’s only affordable housing development project went ahead. The scheme comprises 49 units ranging from two bedroom terrace up to four bedroom detached houses at prices 30 per cent lower than the market value of similar properties in the area. A two bedroom terrace home costs from €140,000 while a four bed detached property is only €219,000. The scheme is specifically aimed at families with an income of €36,000 to €80,000 and Ó Cualann plans to have all families moved in by September 2018. Helen Cheever, her partner and their two sons were one of the families who received the keys to their new house from the minister. “My partner and I have been looking for a house for years and we’re delighted to finally be moving into our own home early next week, once we have the walls painted and the furniture moved in,” she said.

▪▪ Helen Cheever, with baby Erik, receives the keys to her new home from Minister for Housing Eoghan Murphy as local TD, Dessie Ellis (SF) watches on. “We’re going to be saving a lot of money every month, with our mortgage being €700 cheaper than what we’ve been paying in rent. “We’re also big into energy saving and with the solar panels and low energy rating of this house, we’ll be saving on electricity and heating each month too.” The families that are moving into the new development have signed a common charter that binds them to collectively defined community values. This includes a desire to live in a community where people get to know their neighbours before they move in, where they look out for each other, and where they feel safe and secure.

The houses are built to the highest international standards and are highly energy efficient, including the provision of solar panels, which keeps energy bills low. CEO of Ó Cualann CoHousing Alliance, Hugh Brennan, spoke of the importance of affordable housing schemes in addressing the current housing crisis at last week’s ceremony. “The time is right for the Government to bring in policies to support and promote affordable housing schemes,” he said. “We now have our first five families moving in to their new homes, which they would not have been able to afford without this

scheme. “The development here in Poppintree shows that these projects work and there is no doubt that the demand it out there for more housing schemes like this.” Minister Murphy welcomed the development and said it showed what could be achieved in terms of affordable housing. “These are affordable homes in our capital city and this is something I, as Minister for Housing, want to see more of,” he added. “Affordability will be a strong theme in my review of the Rebuilding Ireland Action Plan. This development leads the way and shows what can be achieved.”

Movie projects win awards

New homes at Mary’s Mansions

POPPINTREE Youth Project and Blanchardstown Community Training Centre have been awarded prizes at the Irish Cancer Society X-HALE Youth Awards for their short movie projects. Poppintree scooped the Judges Choice award for ‘Live Your Life’ while Blanchardstown Community Training Centre got the prize for Best Blogging Group. The award winners had their films showcased at the recent event in the Odeon Cinema in the Point Village in Dublin. Over 300 young people from 40 youth and community groups came together to showcase their anti-tobacco films and projects which they created to contribute towards establishing Ireland’s first smoke-free generation. While the rate of smoking has seen declines in recent years, eight per cent (or approximately 40,260) of children and young people between the ages of 10 and 17 are still using tobacco products. The Irish Cancer Society says it’s vital that this gen-

Kevin O’Hagan, Cancer Prevention Manager at the Irish Cancer Society, congratulated the local groups on

winning their prizes and making a positive impact on their health and that of their peers. “They have been recognised at this awards ceremony for exceptional effort in their respective projects,” he added.

“We need to look at what Poppintree Youth Project, Blanchardstown Community Training Centre and the rest of the #TheXGeneration are saying. “They can be Ireland’s first smoke-free generation and they

are telling us in their own way about the dangers of smoking and they are confident enough to share this message with their peers. They are educated on the issue of smoking and are refusing to let their health be

affected by tobacco.” X-HALE is an initiative of the Irish Cancer Society that aims to empower young people to work towards reducing smoking among their generation by raising awareness about the dangers of smoking

and encouraging their peers to be smoke free. Since its inception in 2011, X-HALE has awarded over €140,000 to youth groups and organisations to create smoking related community awareness film projects.

The development has an expected delivery date of late 2019 and the cost of almost €19 million includes acquisition of the site and construction. The council scheme is being transferred to housing body Clúid and will be funded by the European Investment Bank. Minister for Finance & Public Expenditure, Paschal Donohoe, welcomed the news. “The approval of €18,925,000 for the refurbishment of St Mary’s Mansions, is exceptionally welcome,” he said. “St Mary’s has been in line for regeneration for some time now and the fact that the number of units to be provided has been increased will be welcomed by everyone involved. The local community deserves to see the Mansions progressed.”

Full STEAM ahead for local pupils ST FRANCIS Xavier National School (SFXNS) in Dublin 15 has graduated from a new Irish STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and maths) initiative. The ‘Maths in a Box’ initiative is aimed at providing a stimulus to primary school pupils to actively engage with STEAM subjects outside of their curriculum. Pupils from both fifth and sixth class celebrated the completion of a six week programme which involved specific STEAM related classes being voluntarily given by employees from Alexion Pharmaceuticals, a global biopharmaceutical company with its Global Operations and Supply Chain headquarters in Ireland. The pupils were engaged in creative, analytical and lateral thinking skills to bring maths to life in a fun format. Eight local staff members from Alexion Pharmaceutical’s College Park facility volunteered their time to teach classes and assist the SFXNS children in visualising

DCU physicists get French Courses Science Bus rolling Harvest Term 2017 FOUR Dublin City University physicists have been selected to lead a European initiative that will see a Science Bus tour around Europe to demonstrate that citizen science is an accessible and fun way to explore the world around us.

The Science Bus forms part of a European project ‘Doing It Together Science’ in which 11 research institutions will collaborate with science galleries, museums and art institutions to host innovative workshops, exhibitions and activities to engage as many people as possible with citizen science. Following an international call and selection process, the four DCU physicists and one from University College Dublin were selected as captains of the bus as it makes its way across Europe. PhD researchers Claire O’Connell and Stephen Davitt will lead team one, DCU graduates Philip Smyth and Aoibheann Bird team two

▪▪ Pictured (l-r) are: Colin Kingston of Bank of Ireland, Dublin, Declan Collins, ISAX Graduate and Antoinette Golden, Head of Enterprise Development, ISAX.

Declan Collins of Checkmate, based in Castleknock, took part in the nine-week programme, run by DCU Ryan Academy and sponsored by Bank of Ireland, that saw mature business owners from around the country take part in the specialist course. The graduation finale took place in the DCU Ryan Academy for Entrepreneurship in Citywest and the event was a great success showcasing some of Ireland’s most innovative businesses. As a graduate of the programme, Declan will now put the skills and knowledge he has learned into elevating his burglary prevention company to the

next level. The Ireland Smart Ageing Exchange (ISAX) Ingenuity accelerator programme was targeted at mature business owners aged 50+. It’s designed specifically to address the challenges facing business owners who are seeking to scaleup. The programme ran one day a week over nine weeks and included workshops, bespoke mentoring and excellent networking opportunities. “There is a growing population of healthy mature people with the skills, financial resources and time available to contribute to economic activity, whilst also providing social benefits,” said Anne Connolly, Chief Executive, ISAX. “Older entrepreneurs generally possess more developed networks, industry experience and stronger financial security compared

with their younger counterparts.” Laura Lynch, Head of Consumer Segments, Bank of Ireland spoke about the bank’s involvement with the programme. “As the No 1 Bank for business in Ireland, we are delighted to sponsor this programme and also to be at the forefront in encouraging mature entrepreneurs to start their own business. “We have an extensive enterprise programme of activity in place to support business throughout the life cycle, much of which will be equally relevant in providing support to the mature entrepreneur.” ISAX courses will run in Cork and Limerick in September and ISAX is now accepting applications for the programme.

Dating app lets users play Cupid THE age old art and tradition of Irish matchmaking has moved into the digital age thanks to an innovative Northsider whose start-up company is about to take the dating world by storm.

▪▪ Niamh Mc Cabe from Luvguru aims to take the dating world by storm. OPENING OFFERS

UP TO

30% OFF T&C’S

Niamh McCabe (25), from the North Circular Road, is the co-founder of Luvguru, a new matchmaking app that allows friends and neighbours to play Cupid, to meddle in another friend’s love life and to hook them up with a suitable date. Niamh’s start-up has already been funded by Enterprise Ireland and accepted to the acclaimed NDRC Accelerator Programme, and last week she was named as one of 19 finalists put forward to the public voting phase of the Nissan Generation Next ambassador programme.

“The tradition of matchmaking dates back generations in Ireland,” explained Niamh. “We are taking it to a worldwide audience. We don’t use algorithms. We let your friends and neighbours hook you up. The more times you are matched with someone, the higher we rate them for you. “It’s called swarm intelligence and it’s basically unstoppable. You not only get to be a matchmaker but also get rewarded for being a good one with Karma points. We’ve gamified the whole experience. The more points you accumulate the higher you rise in the Luvguru rankings. “It’s about trusting your friends to handpick your date for you and it eliminates catfish and spam. Referrals always have a higher success rate. They work in

sales and job hunting and Luvguru aims to capitalise on that. It is the first dating app to tap into the power of the crowd and this is what makes it unique.” Niamh launched the app this month and is already on track to having 5,000 downloaded users. She aims to secure a round of seed funding this summer which will be used to promote and grow the business and to expand the app’s user base throughout the world. Nissan Generation Next helps young Irish innovators to follow their dream and to get ahead by providing them with a brand new, taxed and insured Nissan to drive for a year. Over 1,000 people applied for the 10 ambassadorships on this year’s programme. The Luvguru app is available for download on IOS and Android.

Student development officially opened A NEW development that will provide 447 beds for students was officially opened on Dorset Street Upper last week. The Aparto Dorset Point boasts facilities including a games room, a cinema room, a gym and a roof garden and it’s one of five major sites across the city being developed by Hines for student accommodation. Aparto is the operating platform for all of Hines’ student developments. In addition to Aparto Dorset Point, Hines acquired the 205 bed Aparto Montrose development adjacent to UCD, a 470 bed development at The Binary Hub, a 450 bed development in Summerhill due to be completed in 2018 and a development site on Cork Street, which is subject to planning approval. Hines’ Managing Director responsible for student accommodation, Alex Knapp, said Dublin was home to a vibrant student population

Big win for scratch card shopper A LOCAL mum who went out for a day’s shopping came home with more money that she started out with after winning €50,000 on a scratch card. The lucky woman, in her sixties, spent the day with her daughter in Liffey Valley Shopping Centre and stopped into Tuthills newsagents “to get a few things”, one of which being an All Cash Platinum scratch card. She was momentarily stunned when she scratched to reveal her winning amount - and had to get her daughter to double check the golden ticket. “At first I just closed my eyes,” she said. “I didn’t believe it so I drew a deep breath and checked again. Still I couldn’t believe it. “I called my daughter over and asked her to check it. She said ‘Mam, you’ve won 50 grand!’ I’m over the moon.” Both ladies eyes were telling the truth but the mum still couldn’t believe her luck when she was presented with her cheque in the winners’ room at National Lottery HQ in Abbey Street, accompanied by her daughter. “Even though I always thoroughly check my scratch cards and religiously watch the Lotto draws on Wednesdays and Saturdays to check my numbers, I never thought I’d actually win this amount,” the lucky mum said. This is not the first scratch card win for the woman as she revealed she has won €25 a few times and also won €200. “Once I got my first win with the All Cash Platinum scratch card, I stuck with that kind – they’re pretty lucky for me,” she said.

I was pleased to hear Niall Horan is going on tour. The One D star has announced the dates for his Flicker Sessions solo tour which’ll kick off here next month. He’ll then make his way to London, Sydney and Tokyo before ending with gigs in America in November. Niall plays the Olympia Theatre in Dublin on August 29. There was no monkey business (excuse the pun) when it came to Steve Zahn preparing for his role in new film, ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’. The third instalment is out in cinemas now. Steve plays new character, Bad Ape. In an interview with Dublin’s Q102 he told me that he put hours and hours into researching the role. I suppose you would want to if it’s your first time playing an ape! Rachel Weisz says it’s tough wearing a corset for film roles but that the end result makes it worth it. She had to live in a corset when filming ‘My Cousin Rachel’. Rachel says that although it’s not pleasant it helps you get in character. Tough life being a Hollywood star eh! Hollyoaks’ star Jennifer Metcalfe has shared the first picture of her new baby. Jennifer and her partner of four years, Greg Lake, welcomed their son into the world on June 21. The snap shared on Jen’s Instagram shows Greg holding the baby’s tiny feet in his hands. And finally I was sad to hear that Mrs Browns Boys star Rory Cowan has quit Mrs Brown’s Boys after claiming he hasn’t been happy for years. He’s played Agnes’ son Rory in the show for the past 26 years. We’ll miss you Rory!

That’s it from me. Until next week

Riptide Movement to make tracks at Leopardstown SUMMER nights of live music and horse racing continue at Leopardstown Racecourse this Thursday, July 20 when the Riptide Movement return to play the racecourse stage.

2. MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT IN DUBLIN: Our first headline gig in the Olympia Theatre back in 2012... it was always a dream of mine to play it, and a surreal experience when it happened.

The Riptide Movement have scored considerable success in Ireland with two number one albums, 'Getting Through' and 'Ghosts'. Tracks such as 'All Works Out' and 'Elephant in the Room' have been staples on Irish radio over the last several years. The band continued to spread their wings in Europe and the US during 2016, marking them down as one of Ireland's most popular rock outfits of the last few years. We put vocalist Mal Tuohy on the Track Record. For tickets and hospitality options go to www. leopardstown.com

3. MOST 'WANT TO FORGET' MOMENT IN DUBLIN: About six years ago when we were busking on Grafton Street, an old drunk dude walked up and spat in my face mid song. It’s definitely a moment I want to forget!! 4. FIRST ALBUM YOU BOUGHT AND LAST ALBUM YOU BOUGHT: The first album I bought was 'Nevermind' by Nirvana and the last one I bought was just a couple of weeks ago, an album called 'The Roaring Girl' by a Kildare artist called Sive.

6. WHO ARE YOUR INFLUENCES? Bob Dylan, The National, Furry Lewis, The Cure, The Kinks, Arcade Fire.

1. BEST GIG YOU'VE BEEN TO IN DUBLIN: The best gig I've been to in Dublin was Oasis back in 1997 when they played the old Point Depot. It was my first gig and it changed my life, I wanted to start my own band after that, and within a week my first band 'the Relic' was born.

5. WHEN YOU'RE NOT PLAYING MUSIC, WHAT ELSE DO YOU DO? I try to spend as much time as I can with my friends and family, I read a lot, go to gigs whenever I can, get out for a local pint whenever I can, and binge watch Netflix whenever I get the chance; I'm binging on 'House of Cards' at the moment.

7. IF YOU WEREN'T IN THE RIPTIDE MOVEMENT, WHO WOULD MAKE UP YOUR IDEAL BAND WITH YOU AS FRONTMAN? (MUSICIANS PAST AND PRESENT) If I wasn't in the Riptide Movement my ideal band would be Mick Fleetwood on drums, John Entwistle on Bass, John Lennon on rhythm guitar, Rory Gallagher on

▪▪ Riptide Movement lead guitar and either Fatz Domino or Ray Manzarek on keys. 8. ANY TIPS ON LIFE? Live it, we've only got one. 9. FIRST PERSON YOU'D INVITE TO YOUR PARTY? Christine Hopkins. 10. LAST PERSON YOU'D INVITE TO YOUR PARTY? Kim Jong Un or Seanie Fitzpatrick.

Local man Wesley aiming to swim English Channel A NORTHSIDE man will attempt to swim the English Channel next month to raise money for the Irish Deaf Society to support its Irish Sign Language recognition campaign. Wesley Nolan, originally from Beaumont, has been living in London for several years.  In August he will swim solo from Dover, England, to Cap Gris Nez in France. “As a profoundly deaf man this is a cause very close to my heart,” says Wesley. “I moved to the UK shortly after British Sign Language was recognised by the UK government as an official minority language (though the recognition does not have legal status). “Despite that, the deaf community in Britain has benefited hugely from this move, along with equality legislation in this country.

▪▪ Wesley is aiming to raise money for the Irish Deaf Society to support its Irish Sign Language recognition campaign. “One outcome of these changes is the Access to Work scheme which has had a really positive impact on my career – it has allowed me to use interpreters in the workplace, all paid for by the government. “Because there are no language barriers between me and my colleagues, I feel

equal at work – and this has allowed me to contribute in the workplace and get promoted.” Wesley says he is all too aware that his deaf friends and peers in Ireland have not been given the same opportunities at work. “Language barriers still remain in the workplace –

▪▪ Wesley Nolan is planning to swim the English Channel next month.

and in hospitals, GP clinics, in schools and so on,” he says. “I strongly believe that to change this, Irish Sign Language has to be recognised. With ISL recognition public services will have to make themselves accessible to deaf people and remove language barriers. I think it will

also open up the world of employment to deaf people. “The Irish Deaf Society (IDS) has been campaigning for ISL recognition for over 30 years and they are now getting close to their goal but there’s still a lot of work to be done. “They would like to take on extra staff to help with

the increased workload that will come as the campaign gathers speed – but for this they need funds. So I want to raise €10,000 to contribute towards this.” Wesley says swimming the English Channel was a dream before, but now it’s a real event. “I started planning this

two years ago and since then all my weekends and evenings have been spent training and it is very tough,” he says. “But the support of my family and friends has helped me to keep going ISL recognition was just a pipedream three decades ago but the Irish Deaf Society have worked tirelessly towards making it a reality, and I’d love to be a part of making that happen. “I share the same dream that many Irish deaf people have – that of an Irish society where we are all equal. ISL recognition will bring us closer to that goal.” If you would like to donate to Wesley’s cause, follow this link: www.gofundme. com/wesley-nolans-channel-swim-2017/donate Wesley’s Facebook page is: www.facebook. co m / We s l ey- N o l a n s- E n glish-Channel-Swim-20171806124746294086/

Book of the Week: ‘All At Sea’

B

UNNY and Richard McElroy decide to take the family on a cruise in the Caribbean for Christmas.

As they prepare to leave their oldest daughter, Jess, lands on their doorstep from London and announces she's left her husband having found him in bed with the cleaner. She joins the party although she and her younger sister, Sarah, do not see eye to eye. Tony Kenny is also taking his long-suffering wife, Ann, and his college student children Jack and Emily on the same cruise. Tony is arrogant and a bully and obsessed with staying young. He finds the young and beautiful Jess irresistible. Lastly, Declan Jordan, a serial cheater, has to get away with his wife, Cassie, for fear that his current mistress, Alix, who they cannot avoid meeting over Christmas, will blow his marriage to pieces. Cassie has suspicions that he is cheating on her once again but when he arrives home to say they are going on a cruise for Christmas, a second

honeymoon as he calls it, she is pleasantly surprised. All three families arrive excited at the prospect of two glorious weeks cruising the Caribbean. However, all does not go as well as planned as under sunny blue skies, the families interact and become friends. Unfortunately for Declan, Alix has discovered his plan and seeks revenge. When she turns up on the cruise, all hell breaks loose. Sarah, a beautiful but impossibly spoilt young lady, gets involved with a group of Italians who turn out to be professional thieves; Jess goes off the rails and has an affair with a married man. His wife finds out and lastly Alix comes to an untimely end. When the cruise is over the McElroys (who separate) and the Kennys (minus one) all continue holidaying in Florida for a week. Declan stays in Florida too ...but not on a holiday.

The Museum Standards Programme for Ireland (MSPI) was established by the Heritage Council to benchmark and promote professional standards in the care of collections and to recognise through accreditation the achievement of those standards within the Irish museum sector. Dublin Castle State Apartments was awarded Full Accreditation for the first time in recognition of their work in collection care, governance, and visitor care and access.

TRAVEL

Greece’s carefree island pooper-scooper; I imagine picking up after your beast is required. On Hydra, a traffic jam is three donkeys and a fisherman. Hydra (pronounced EE-drah) is hardly undiscovered. In 1956, Sophia Loren came here to play a Hydriot sponge diver in the film ‘Boy on a Dolphin’, propelling the little island onto the international stage. (A statue honouring the film sits just outside of town along the coastal path.) By the 1960s Hydra had become a favourite retreat for celebrities, well-heeled tourists, and artists and Rick Steeves writers, who drew inspiration from the idyllic surroundings. The late Canadian songwriter Leonard Cohen lived here for THE island of Hydra less than two hours south of Athens by ferry - offers a time - and was inspired to compose the ideal Greek island experience, and his beloved song ‘Bird on the Wire’ after observing just that here on Hydra. doesn't even require a long journey To honour the expat poet, the town is across the Aegean. naming the street in front of his house It has one real town, no real roads, no after him.

Behind each mule-train toils a human go, but few venture beyond the harbour

Once, I decided to head uphill from my hotel, and my small detour became a delightful little odyssey. While I had no intention of anything more than a lazy stroll, one inviting lane after another drew me up, up, up to the top of the town. Here, shabby homes enjoyed grand views, tired burros ambled along untethered, and island life trudged on, oblivious to tourism.

But while the history is somewhat Kaminia's pocket-sized harbour interesting, the beauty of Hydra is in relaxing at a café and aimlessly wandering shelters the community's fishing boats, and its tavern, perched on a bluff above, its back lanes.

boasts my favourite, irresistible dinner views on Hydra. Sitting on the porch with a glass of ouzo and some munchies, I watch the sun dip gently into the Saronic Gulf. At twilight, I walk back to town along the lamplit coastal lane, under a ridge lined with derelict windmills. Back in town, I settle on a ferry cleat the size of a stool, scanning the scene. Big flat-screen TVs flicker from every other yacht. All the high rollers seem to be back on board watching movies. I observe the pleasant evening routine of strolling and socialising. Dice clatter on backgammon boards, entrepreneurial cats seem busy, children chase soccer balls, and in a low-profile corner, a tethered goat chews on something inedible. From the other end of town comes the happy music of a christening party. Dancing women fill the building, while their children mimic them in the street. Farther down, two elderly, black-clad women sit like tired dogs on the curb. Succumbing to the lure of a pastry shop, I order some honey-soaked baklava. I tell the baker I'm American. "Oh," he says, shaking his head with sadness and pity, "You work too hard." I answer, "Right. But not today."

The Battle Zone - at Jump Zone Santry Jump Zone has just completed the addition of two new major attractions to its Santry facility in Airways Industrial Estate, close by to Dublin Airport. The Battle Beam and a Two-Lane Foam Pit have just been installed at a cost in excess of €80,000 making this one of the top attractions in the country to visit this Summer!

The Battle Beam will be the only one of its kind outside the Jump Zone Sandyford location and the Two-Lane foam pit will be dedicated to parties with the existing 3 lane foam pit now solely for general customer use. Jump Zone was the first indoor trampoline park in Europe and is by far the largest in Ireland attracting almost 300,000 visitors annually.

The addition of the Battle Beam and Foam Pit sets us apart from any other trampoline park in the country Housed in a 35,000sq. ft warehouse, the Jump Zone Santry facility now includes 2 Trampoline Dodgeball Courts, a 2 & 3 Lane Foam Pit, a 2 lane Trampoline Basketball Court, The Battle Beam and the massive Open Jump Main Court incorporating 50+ trampolines. There is also an 80 seater Café area serving snacks and refreshments to relax in. “The addition of the Battle Beam and Foam Pit sets us apart from any other trampoline park in the country, Jump Zone Santry is now one of the big-

gest facilities in Europe”, according to Paul Quinn, director and owner. “Jump Zone prides itself on adding the best attractions for our customers to ensure their return visits are just as much fun as their first whether joining a party or simply visiting with a small group of friends or as part of a corporate day out”. Jump Zone is conveniently located just off the M50 in both North (Santry) and South (Sandyford) Dublin and is now open 7 days a week throughout July and August.

Hub accommodation must not be for long term, warns mayor

▪▪ Fingal Mayor Cllr McCamley greets Prime Minister Trudeau at Dublin Airport.

FAMILY hub accommodation is not a substitute for the long-term solution of developing social and affordable housing.

Mayor of Fingal welcomes Trudeau

That’s the view of Lord Mayor of Dublin Mícheál Mac Donncha. He was speaking after visiting accommodation being developed by Dublin City Council at the Mater Dei Institute on Clonliffe Road. The Lord Mayor commended the standard of work on the new centre and said the positive drive and energy involved needs to be replicated in developing social housing. “Visiting the Clonliffe Road site I was impressed by the standard of accommodation and attendant facilities being provided,” he said.

ity, and the builders, was very clear. “I have no doubt that this facility will be a huge improvement in living conditions for families currently in emergency accommodation such as hotel rooms. “We must remember that this facility and other such family accommodation hubs being developed by Dublin City Council are transitional for families before they move to long-term accommodation.” The Lord Mayor described the accommodation as a significant contribution to addressing some of the more pressing and immediate effects of the housing ▪▪ Lord Mayor of Dublin Mícheál Mac Donncha.

“I strongly believe that the very positive drive and energy involved in developing these hubs needs to be replicated in developing social and affordable housing. “I will be pressing central government to allow Dublin City Council to harness this drive and energy, including by reducing the many bureaucratic obstacles blocking the speedier provision of homes.” The Lord Mayor said these obstacles include the “over complex and time-consuming procurement procedures and procedures for the approval of spending”. “These processes can and must be simplified and expedited if we are to seriously address the housing crisis in this city and region,” he added.

MAYOR of Fingal Cllr Mary McCamley welcomed Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to Ireland at Dublin Airport when he arrived for his recent visit. Mr Trudeau was accompanied by his wife, Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, and their young son Hadrien on his first State visit to Ireland. Minister of State at the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Ciaran Cannon, and Canadian Ambassador to Ireland, Kevin Vickers, were also at the airport to greet the Prime Minister whose visit to Ireland also included a meeting with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar at Farmleigh and a visit to President Michael D Higgins at Áras an Uachtaráin. Speaking about the meeting, Mayor McCamley said: “It was a great honour, just a few weeks into my role as Mayor of Fingal, to welcome Prime Minister Trudeau, with his wife Sophie and young son Hadrien to Fingal and Ireland.” As Dublin Airport is in located in Fingal protocol dictates that if the President isn’t available then the Mayor of Fingal is next in line to welcome dignitaries here.

The Furry 5K is a 5km sponsored walk with all proceeds going to Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland (AADI). This amazing charity provides highly trained assistance dogs for children with autism and their families. The Horkans Group, which includes Horkans Garden & Lifestyle Centres and Petworld, selected Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland as its national nominated charity in 2016 and last year raised over €6k. “Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland do some really amazing work across Ireland and we are really looking forward to supporting them over the

next few years,” said Stuart Cooper, Chief Operating Officer, Horkans Group. “This partnership gives us a wonderful opportunity to give back to families across Ireland. Autism affects one in 100 people in Ireland and it personally touches some of our own families here at the Horkans Group so it gives us even more commitment to actively support this great cause. “The Furry 5k Woof Walk is our annual 5km walk for dog

owners and their dogs and will take place in seven locations across Ireland on Sunday 23rd July with all money raised going to Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland.” The first 350 people that have registered and turn up for the walk across the seven stores will get a special commemorative walk t-shirt. The charity fee contributions, which can either be paid directly or by raising funds for the charity through a sponsorship card, are €15

for one person, €20 for two people or €30 for a family. Afterwards, there will be light refreshments for both the two and four-legged participants back at the Petworld Nutgrove store. Walkers will get the opportunity to meet representatives from the charity to see how the money they have raised will be used. There will also be free goody bags provided by Hill’s Science Plan Pet Foods, which will include money off vouchers for Hill’s Science Plan dog food. Nuala Geraghty, AADI CEO, explained what the walk means to the charity. "It costs €15,000 to provide a fully trained assistance dog but we are totally dependent for funding on the generosity of the public as we do not get any Government funding,” she said. “We are very pleased to

be working closely with the Horkans Group in helping us achieve our goals. To date we have trained and supplied 27 assistance dogs and 19 companion dogs. “Due to growing demand for our assistance dogs there is currently a five year waiting list. We have this year commenced our own breeding programme and we are delighted to have our first litter of eight puppies. “These puppies are now in their second stage of development – they are all out with foster families. Going forward we have ambitious plans to train and supply 20 assistance dogs per year.” You can register for the walk at www.petworlddirect. ie or pop into the Petworld Nutgrove store and speak to John or any member of the team to pick up your Autism Assistance Dogs Ireland sponsorship pack.

Excellence Ireland award for local Centra IT WAS a night to remember for Blessing’s Centra, New Cabra Road, at the recent 2017 Centra Quality Awards, held in the Malton Hotel, Killarney. The local retailer was one of ten Dublin Centras to be awarded with the prestigious Excellence Ireland Supreme National Hygiene Award – Q Mark, accredited by the Excellence Ireland Quality Association (EIQA). The award was a culmination of three years of hard work and attention to detail as the coveted supreme prize is only bestowed onto retailers who have gone above and beyond in maintaining the highest standards of food safety, quality, and hygiene over a threeyear period. Commenting at the awards, Ian Allen, Centra Sales Director, said Dublin Centra stores should be “extremely proud” of achieving their incredible accolades. “It is a huge honour to receive a Quality Award from the EIQA, as it is an inde-

Local TD and actor call for an end to greyhound cruelty DUBLIN Central TD Maureen O'Sullivan (Ind) and actor Pauline McLynn of Fr Ted fame are teaming up with animal rights groups to highlight greyhound cruelty. Members of The Irish Council Against Bloodsports and CAGED (Campaign Against Greyhound Exploitation and Death) will join the duo at a protest outside the Department of Agriculture, Kildare Street on Tuesday (July 18). CAGED are launching an ad campaign on buses to highlight Greyhound cruelty and Maureen and Pauline hope as many people as possible will come out and support calls to end the practice of exporting greyhounds.

“It is high time this country reversed our appalling record on animal welfare, ensuring that Irish Greyhounds that have finished their domestic racing and coursing careers are not allowed to be shipped out of the state where they face horrible treatment and a painful death,” said Deputy O'Sullivan. “This is a small step yet a vital one for animal welfare. This Government has failed to act on banning live hare coursing, which has been banned almost exclusively in other European countries and shown a lack of desire to tackle puppy farms which has embarrassingly led to Ireland being referred to as the puppy farm capital of Europe." ICABS (Irish Council

Against Blood Sports) say all commercial exports of live greyhounds, has got to end. “Greyhounds are a sensitive, highly intelligent and affectionate breed of dog that adapt amazingly well to living within a home environment as beloved family pets, just like any other breed,” a spokesperson said. “We are appealing to the public to seek out these wonderful dogs for adoption through rescues and pounds and help them to enjoy a long, happy life away from the demands and cruelty of Ireland’s greyhound racing tracks. “The increasing risks of live exports to anywhere other than established greyhound rescues abroad means it is impossible to safeguard

MOTORING WITH 1,025 000 units sold by the end of June and a 15 per cent increase in world-wide sales, Peugeot's strong performance is on track to meet a target figure of two million vehicle sales in 2017. The solid sales performance is driven by the demand across the entire Peugeot passenger car and light commercial vehicle range. The new Peugeot 3008 SUV, which has received 28 international awards, including the prestigious ‘2017 Car of The Year’ award, has beaten all company records in terms of the international order book. A total of 205,000 orders have been made since its launch in late 2016 and 114,900 sales in the first half of 2017. This success has been mirrored in the sales performance of the other SUVs in the range. For the first half of 2017, the Peugeot 2008 SUV, Irish Small SUV of the Year 2017, was number two in its market segment. The first units of the much-anticipated new Peugeot

5008 SUV are due in Ireland in the coming weeks. Peugeot light commercial van sales have risen by 12 per cent, boosted by the new, high-performance Peugeot Expert, Irish Van of the Year 2017, plus the best-selling Peugeot Partner and load-lugging Boxer. Notably, sales outside Europe rose by 46 per cent, accounting for 41 per cent of group sales worldwide. This growth is in line with the lion-brand’s 2017 objective of achieving 45 per cent of sales outside Europe, and underlines a commitment to reaching 50 per cent of total sales outside Europe by 2020. The Peugeot sales offensive will continue in the second half of 2017 with the launch of the new Peugeot mid-size 308 hatchback and SW estate in September.

MOTORING

Citroen’s C4 Grand Picasso has had a new make-over Seán Creedon CITROEN’S C4 Picasso has had a make-over and is now available as a five and seven-seater. I drove the latter, but didn’t have much use for the third row of seats and used that spare area at the rear for shopping, suitcases etc. There are discreet changes, but as with most other cars that get a revamp you would need to be wearing your anorak to spot all the improvements. The three-tiered light effect, which is synonymous with Citroen’s design, is retained. The LED lights are intensified with a chrome trim and you also get a lower front bumper. At the back the 3D effect

▪▪ The new C4 Grand Picasso. lights are standard with new rear chevrons and black gloss with chrome surround, giving a more modern look.

Two new colours are now available, Soft Sand and Lazuli Blue, which was the colour of my test car. An alu-

minium side profile all along the roof, complimented the blue. Overall the external look is very neat as the car

is very well finished off front and back. When you sit in you cannot but be impressed with the size of the windscreen and the first though might be should I have brought sun-cream. The amount of glass in your line of vision is massive and it seems a shame to put anything on the glass. But we all need a rear view mirror and the housing to hold the mirror is the only item on that massive windscreen. In fact you get two mirrors, a rear-view and a smaller one, to keep an eye on the children in the back seats. The controls on the dash come in two levels and the top display is covered so there is no glare. It’s so spacious and you really get a true picture of

the space available when you view the car with the boot open and the second and third row of seats folded down. You can open the rear door with the key fob and it closes down by pressing a button, so no need to get your hands dirty. But you will definitely have to get those hands dirty if you get a puncture, as the spare wheel is located underneath the car. On the road this is a beautiful car to travel in and ideal for touring around our green and pleasant land especially in summer time. There is an electric hand-brake which releases automatically as you begin to drive off. Prices for the C4 Picasso start at €26,695 for the five seater, while the seven-seater Grand Picasso starts at

€28,995. All the extras in my 1.6-litre diesel Grand Picasso test car brought the price up to €32,445. Road tax is €200. There are three trim levels: Touch, Feel and Flair. Naturally there are different options in the various trims, with the top of the range Flair version giving you the facility to open the boot by waving your foot underneath. I took the Picasso for a long drive to Donegal via Cavan and back to Dublin via Sligo and found it to be a very comfortable motor to travel in and the diesel engine is frugal. Arm rests for the driver and front seat passenger, complimented by a gentle massage available on the two front seats, all added to the comfort on the long journey.

Where the traditional choice of finish in designed kitchens was for granite, quartz or marble worktops, a new product is providing an unheard-of flexibility in colour and finish and previously unmatched durability. Neolith is a sintered stone, produced by combining granite materials, glass minerals and natural oxides under extremely high pressure and temperature to produce a lightweight surface that promises to change existing kitchen counter culture. It comes in a wide range of patterns, colours and finishes ranging from rough texture through to highly polished.

to the size of the sheets that it is manufactured in and the fact that you can match patterns far easier than in natural stone. “It’s also easy to scale and you can build it up to any thickness from 3mm to 50mm for a really chunky surface look." The product’s lightness means that it is being used as a marble substitute for wall cladding, replacing the need to reinforce walls or floors due to the weight of the former. Neolith is in the same price bracket as marble or quartz but has the attraction of being maintenance-free and coming with a 10-year guarantee.

"While white marble is very strong this year, we are seeing a huge interest in the coppery colours with a slight lustre or sparkle, with matching copper accessories,” said Aisling. "The copper look is coming through in a combination of countertops, tiling, taps, brassware and especially wall cladding. “And continuing the iron and copper look, people are now matching their kitchen worktop to a range of sink units in Neolith, with estatuario silk, iron copper satin, iron cortex satin and basalt grey the four best-selling colours.

EDUCATION

Successful ICT programme returns AFTER the highly regarded success of last year’s inaugural Learn+Work Programme, the Institute of Technology Blanchardstown’s (ITB) Department of Informatics has opened its doors to recruit a new wave of students looking to access career opportunities in the ICT sector.

▪▪ Tom Nolan, Lecturer in Informatics with student Emmet Quinn and Mark Keyes, Work Placement Coordinator, ITB. PHOTO: ANDRES POVEDA

Growing demand for skills in the ICT sector, and the increasing interest in technology programmes amongst school leavers and mature students, led to ITB’s establishment of the Learn+Work Programme in Networking Technologies last year. It’s a full time course combining blocks of academic study with blocks of paid industry work placement. This work experience gives learners the opportunity to apply their learning, be coached by industry experts and develop the work-ready skills

to gain employment upon graduation. Following completion, students are awarded a Higher Certificate in Science in Computing and Networking Technologies. The networking technologies course was designed in partnership with Technology Ireland ICT Skillnet to provide students with in-company placement, which accounts for approximately 50 per cent of the course. This is accompanied by ac-

ademic studies that provide the up-to-date technical and communication skills that are in high demand within the ICT sector. These skills include modules on computer systems, server administration and networks as well as the knowledge required to achieve highly valued industry certified awards such as CompTIA, Linux, Cisco, Microsoft and VMware, which are also be facilitated through ITB. Students like Emmet

Quinn (23) from Raheny receive exposure to experienced and creative mindsets, whilst making valuable connections with innovative companies such as Fleet Connect, based in Blanchardstown Corporate Park who provide Wi-Fi and technology solutions for public transport. According to Emmet, the paid work experience was a real clincher in applying for the course, helping him to keep his independence and focus on his studies, which other courses might not have provided. “The lack of fees allows me much more time to focus on my studies and puts me at a great advantage in terms of having the time to work on assignments and certifications,” he says. “The certifications themselves are also massively beneficial to my professional development, and for future job applications.” Patrick Cotter, CEO of Fleet Connect, where Emmet is currently undertaking his work experience, believes the industry needs staff with a multiple of skills. “In today’s climate, people need to do more than run a cable or connect a router,” he explained. “A new recruit needs to possess excellent communication skills, be adept at solving problems, take ownership of their job and be

able to react to situations swiftly and confidently. “This is why we joined ITB’s Learn+Work programme. We believe it’s a win-win situation because students get the opportunity to grow, learn and build a portfolio, while we get to avail of the best staff in the business.” Work Placement Coordinator with ITB, Mark Keyes, says the programme is a win-win opportunity. “The businesses we partner with tell us that they see the course as a low-risk recruitment opportunity; using the placement period as a method of assessing prospective employees for future vacancies,” he explains. “And of course this goes both ways, with students developing a very real impression of the IT industry, as well as a ‘taster’ of potential employers and workplaces.” The programme prepares candidates for careers in Networking, Data Centre and Cloud based disciplines, with roles including: Desktop service and support, Network Operation Centre Engineer, Information Security Engineer, Systems Administrator, Cisco Network Engineer, Helpdesk Engineer, Field Service Engineer and PreSales Engineer.

EMPLOYMENT/BUSINESS

First impressions: you only get to make the one Cormac Spencer THE problem with first impressions, they say, is that you only get to make one. Most people know this of course, which is why it never fails to surprise me when I get CVs into my inbox that have not been given the due care required to make a positive impact, and successfully navigate this important first hurdle in a job application. There are a growing number of work opportunities available to people across the county and country, however, people must be prepared in order to maximize their chances of realising those opportunities. Just because job opportunities are on the rise, it doesn’t mean candidates should take a relaxed attitude to their job search. Having a well put together, coherent, and persuasive CV is an essential part of securing one of the growing number of jobs available. US studies have shown that recruiters spend an average of six seconds on a CV before they decide whether to keep reading or not. I can’t say I discard someone that quickly, but any employer will wonder why they should spend their time on someone who can’t be bothered spending an hour or so putting together a decent CV. A CV, like a good handshake, can say a lot about a person. If a candidate isn’t taking the time to create a carefully thought out CV, then they are doing themselves a disservice and running the risk they will end up in the trash folder. Below I outline three steps which are essential to creating a good CV. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but can be considered ‘CV 101’. These steps will allow you to get past the employer’s first glance and put you in serious contention for the job you are applying for. NO SPELLING MISTAKES: All programmes have a spell

Unemployment figures drop further again TÁNAISTE and Minister for Enterprise and Innovation, Frances Fitzgerald, has welcomed the monthly unemployment figures for June showing that the official unemployment rate has fallen from 6.4 per cent in May to 6.3 per cent in June and from 8.3 per cent in June 2016. The statistics, published this month by the Central Statistics Office (CSO) also show that: • On a seasonally adjusted basis 900 fewer people were unemployed in June compared to May, and • 42,100 fewer people were unemployed in June compared with 12 months earlier. “Once again we are seeing the unemployment rate going in the right direction,” the Tánaiste said. “It is heartening to see the unemployment rate continuing to decline and we are moving closer to full employment.  “As Minister for Enterprise and Innovation, I will continue with the Government pol-

Some recruiters and employers will refuse to respond to CVs with spelling mistakes as it shows a complete lack of attention on the part of the applicant. Don’t be discounted by failing to click a button. BE RELEVANT: Your CV should be concise and should clearly emphasise the experience that makes you suitable for the particular job you’re applying for. Don’t just write down everything you have done, but succinctly lay out the areas of experience that are a match for each job. Don’t stop there! STAND OUT: Don’t just list

the duties you performed in previous employments - outline your achievements. Your CV should portray a candidate who sought and gained experience and who made a serious contribution. Years of service are not enough to convince employers of your suitability. Many people, who have been working for decades, simply turn up and switch off, hide in the long grass, and never do more than is required (and sometimes less!). Use your CV to outline projects taken on, sales targets exceeded or filing systems modernised. No one will thank you for being modest and employers will appreciate a candidate

who can take on new challenges and succeed. There is no excuse for not having a good CV. There are ample online resources available to assist and most recruiters will work with you to ensure your CV is up to scratch. An employer’s time is limited, so make sure your CV gives them food for thought and not cause for concern. Don’t waste your opportunity to make a good first impression.

creation. “Over 225,000 jobs have been created since the Action Plan for Jobs was launched, with 1,300 new jobs created every week during 2016. “In percentage terms this is one of the highest decreases in the European Union.” ▪▪
