Drug project row escalates MEMBERS of a drug task force in Blanchardstown have threatened to resign in a row over the closure of a local project. THE ADAPT drug and alcohol service is set to close for good in July following a decision by the board of management to wind down the project. The project was supported with funding from the HSE, which has backed the board’s decision. To assist with the winding down, the HSE has set up a group to look at services run by ADAPT that need immediate cover. However, Dublin West community representatives claim they’ve been excluded from the process and members of the

Blanchardstown Local Drugs Task Force (BLDTF) say they’ll quit if they’re not involved. “If our community are excluded from this process, then many of us see no purpose for the BLDTF and therefore will resign our positions as community representatives,” a spokesperson for BLDTF said. Locals in Dublin 15 held a protest outside the Blanchardstown Local Drugs Task Force (BLDTF) offices last week to voice their anger over ADAPT’s closure. ADAPT (Addressing Drug & Alcohol Problems Together), based in Coolmine Industrial Estate since the late 1990s, was set up in Continued on p2

in 2013 following a merger of the Hartstown/Huntstown and Mountview/Blakestown community drug teams, which had been active since the late 1990s. The project was set to be restructured but staff were informed last month that the board of management had decided to wind ADAPT down and they were to be made redundant on July 7. Local Community representatives, Philip Keegan, Paul Donnelly, Lorna Nolan and Bob Tallant, issued a statement expressing their shock over the closure and dismay that the winding down is being managed by the HSE. “We want a say in the wind down of ADAPT and the development of services in our community in Mountview, Blakestown, Hartstown and Huntstown,” their statement reads. “We want to be partners in the development of a wider Dublin 15 drug strategy and the HSE must include community representatives in their ‘committee’ who are currently developing a strategy for the funding from ADAPT CDT. “The community were the catalyst for the establishment of the Blanchardstown Local Drugs Task Force

(BLDTF) over 20 years ago and have been fully committed to collaborative, inter-agency and community based strategies for drug services in Dublin 15. “We have been, and are, committed to the ideal of everyone coming together and developing effective strategies to ensure we have services for those affected by problem drug use. “If our community are excluded from this process, then many of us see no purpose for the BLDTF and therefore will resign our positions as community representatives.” In a response to queries from Northside People, the HSE outlined where ADAPT services will be relocated but did not respond directly to the community’s claims of exclusion. “The Board of ADAPT advised CHO Dublin North City & County (CHO DNCC) that it had taken the decision to wind down ADAPT,” the HSE statement reads. “The HSE fully supports the decision of the Board and is working closely with the Board to ensure that all service users who were accessing services from ADAPT are linked in and supported by other organisations/service providers in the area and that there is a smooth transition of services.”

Craic agus ceol at BEO Trad Fest BEO Ballymun Trad and Ballads festival celebrated its fourth year in style earlier this month, playing host to some of the best local and national musicians from the Irish Trad scene. From lunchtime ceol sessions to a headline gig by Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine, there was something for everyone during what turned out to be a great week in Ballymun.

Local musicians The Rooneys and Clann Rí Liamo launched this year’s festival on Tuesday, June 6, in the Council Chambers at the Civic Centre. The festival had many brilliant events including free trad sessions in axis café all week. On Wednesday there was a Céilí on the Plaza with the cream of local talent playing as pupils from Virgin Mary Girls School and Gaelscoil Bhailemun-

na performed on Cearnóg an tSeachtar Laoch to thrilled onlookers. That night the brilliant Radhairc Ceilteach’s music students, young and old, took to the stage of axis with tin whistles, fiddle, guitar and more. And axis was packed to the rafters as nearly 100 musicians performed throughout the evening. Thursday saw Paddy Cullivan (Late Late Show band and Callan’s Kicks)

bring his musical satire ‘10 Dark Secrets of the Irish Rebellion’ to axis and the Setanta Clubhouse hosted a tribute gig for late musician Tony Olwill On the Friday the festival was headlined by Donal Lunny and Andy Irvine who re-united for the final concert. These two giants of the Irish trad scene played to a packed and enthralled audience, supported on the night by local mu-

sicians Tommy Smith, Noreen Leech, Majella O’ Beirne and John Adams. Beo Ballymun is a community initiative funded and supported by Dublin City Council area office and the Arts office.

OPINION

• NORTHSIDE PEOPLE WEST

>>

Reopening Garda stations is just a start decision. For all the spin about the ‘smart policing’ alternatives, the simple fact is that communities felt exposed without the physical presence of a Garda station. After the economic crash, more than 100 Garda stations across the country closed their doors under savage Fine Gael/Labour cuts. It was a major issue in last year’s general election, as many former TDs will attest. Any Government perceived to be soft on crime will inevitably suffer the wrath of the electorate. Former Justice Minister, Alan Shatter, who represented Comment: Tony McCullagh, Stepaside and presided over the closure Dublin People group editor of his local Garda station, was among the casualties. Garda Commissioner HANE Ross was a happy man Nóirín O’Sullivan was asked by the last week – and with good Government to review the feasibility of reason. As Enda Kenny’s reopening a number of Garda stations reign as Taoiseach drew to and last week she presented her interim a close, the Minister for Transport, report. Stepaside is likely to be joined Sport and Tourism finally secured one of his key conditions for entering by Rush in North County Dublin, along with two other stations in Wicklow and Government – the reopening of a Carlow, when the commissioner releases Garda station in his constituency. her final report at the end of June. Two new Garda stations are also Not that there wasn’t merit in Minister proposed for Dublin Airport and Dublin Ross campaigning for Stepaside Garda Port. In the face of increased threats to Station to be reopened. Its closure in our national security posed by terrorism, 2013 was met with outrage from local this would appear to be a prudent residents and businesses who quite rightly voiced concern about the upsurge measure. Politically, the controversial in crime that followed the short-sighted closure of the Garda stations has proved

S

to be the least of the Government’s worries. The credibility of the Garda Siochana has been shaken to its core by scandal after scandal, from the penalty points fiasco to the falsification of breath test figures and allegations of a smear campaign against whistleblowers. There’s little doubt there are many decent, hardworking, dedicated gardaí who are as appalled as the rest of us by the goings-on. It can be a thankless, dangerous job; their day to day tasks hampered by under-funded Garda divisions. With shocking acts of violence being carried out on our streets due to the ongoing gangland feud, never before have we needed a properly functioning police force so badly. The reopening of a handful of Garda stations needs to be more than just a token gesture. That means assigning each station enough cars and manpower to allow effective response times to crimes and longer opening hours. A parttime station is about as effective as no station at all. Unless the decision to reopen Garda stations is underpinned by proper resources, it will be perceived by the public as a cynical measure designed to appease a minister whose support is vital to the survival of the Government. ▪▪ Many Garda stations are under-resourced.

Luas Cross City testing warmly welcomed by business groups TESTING of trams on the new Luas Cross City green line extension marks a major milestone in the project according to Dublin Chamber, the representative body for businesses in the Dublin region. Two trams running at speeds of between 5-10kmh were due to be tested on Saturday between St Stephen’s Green, College Green and over to O’Connell Street. The last trams on O’Connell Street were the numbers 6, 7 and 8, which ran from Nelson’s Pillar towards the Southside until 1949. On Sunday the gauge test run continued between Broadstone and

Cabra and through the city centre again. The gauge run tests include a range of measurements and checks to ensure that the new infrastructure is working with the trams and allows the engineering team to check the exact and precise specifications. Dublin Chamber CEO Mary Rose Burke said the sight of trams running through the city centre sends a clear signal to the people and businesses of Dublin that the end of traffic disruption caused by construction is finally in sight - and the wait will be worth it. “The extension of the Luas network through the heart of the city and out to Cabra will be a fantas-

tic addition to the city's transport network,” She said. “Constructing the new line has been a complicated task and has resulted in significant upheaval over the past four years. “But it's very much a case of short-term pain for long-term gain, with the city set to reap the benefits of the new line for decades to come." The new Luas line will be tested throughout the summer months and is due to take its first passengers in early December. Dublin Chamber believes this will provide a boost for businesses in the run up to Christmas. "An early December opening presents all city

centre stakeholders with an opportunity to encourage people to come in and enjoy the city centre this Christmas,” said Burke. “The number of people coming into Dublin city centre is increasing all the time. As the economy continues to grow, the pressure on our transport network will increase. “It is vital that the Luas Cross City project is followed up by much-needed continued investment in Dublin's transport infrastructure." Luas Cross City is predicting the new route will bring in an additional 10 million passengers a year to the city centre once it’s up and running. Research carried out by Dublin city business

group, DublinTown, has shown that 44 per cent of Dubliners surveyed are more likely to visit the city once the new Luas line is operating. "Throughout the construction phase of this project we have worked closely with Luas Cross City, the NTA, Gardai and other stakeholders to minimise the impact of the works on businesses and the city,” said Richard Guiney, CEO DublinTown. “This cooperation has

seen footfall rise in the city each year despite the extensive works being carried out. “Businesses can’t wait to see this much-needed transport system passing by their premises. “We look forward to getting a glimpse of how the new system will look and work during these test runs. It’s an exciting time for the city!" Members of the public are asked to keep a safe distance from trams

and obey the instructions of Gardai and marshals during any test runs. Meanwhile a temporary traffic light system to control traffic crossing Cabra Road Bridge has been put be in place to facilitate the Luas Cross City works. Motorists using Cabra Road are advised to allow for longer journey times through the area or take an alternative route to avoid the works, which is expected to take a number of weeks.

Colour Dash fun in Phoenix Park OVER 5,000 participants were blasted with five shades of paint during the Irish Cancer Society’s Colour Dash in Phoenix Park earlier this month. Sponsored by Aldi, the Colour Dash is a 5km race where colourful paint representing different types of cancer and cancer sur-

vivorship are thrown at runners and walkers as they complete the course. Money raised from the race supports cancer patients on every step of their cancer journey, as well as funding vital cancer research to find better ways of treating and diagnosing cancer. In Dublin, 10,274 people were diagnosed with can-

cer over a recent 12 month period, including 736 cases of prostate cancer, 874 cases of breast cancer and 728 lung cancer. Last year Irish Cancer Society Night Nurses in Dublin delivered 1,089 nights of care to support patients to stay at home during their final days. A total of 6,710 journeys were facilitated for

patients from Dublin who used the volunteer driver service that transports patients to and from their chemotherapy treatment. “Colour Dash is a fantastic opportunity for families in Dublin and neighbouring counties to enjoy a fun day out, while helping the 40,000 people in Ireland who will get a cancer diagnosis

this year,” said John McCormack, CEO of the Irish Cancer Society. The Irish Cancer Society is one of several charities to benefit from Aldi Ireland’s community support programme. The society was specifically chosen by Aldi staff in a company-wide poll because so many of them knew people affected by cancer and wanted to help. Through a combination of sponsorship, a staff ‘Bric a Brac’ collection, staff donations, Colour Dash entry fees and sales of Daffodil Day daffodils and charity cards at Aldi’s stores, Aldi and its staff have raised over €175,000 for the Irish Cancer Society since 2016. "Aldi is very proud to partner with the Irish Cancer Society and support the Colour Dash for a second year running,” said Aldi Ireland’s Group Buying Director, Finbar McCarthy. Mr McCarthy added: “It’s a superb event for a cause that is close to the hearts of our customers and staff.”

The Great Dublin Survey is seeking to shape the capital’s future for 2050 MORE than 5,000 Dubliners so far have taken part in a survey about what they’d like to see happen in the city between now and the year 2050.

The views have been shared in The Great Dublin Survey, an online poll being carried out by Dublin Chamber. The poll sets out a number of thought-provoking

questions that aim to capture the ideas, hopes, and aspirations of people who live in the capital. The Great Dublin Survey - which can be found at www.greatdublinsurvey.

ie - is part of Dublin Chamber’s Dublin 2050 initiative, which is exploring the need for better long-term planning in the Dublin region. The survey asks Dubs to think ahead to the year 2050 and consider where they want to live in the city, how they'd like to get around and the social amenities they'd like to see in their local communities. It also seeks opinions on how prepared we are for technology to play an increasing role in daily life as well as the institutions and people Dubliners expect will have a strong influence on their life. "We're delighted with the response so far and people are really engaging with the idea of being able

to play a role in shaping the future of their city,” said Dublin Chamber CEO, Mary Rose Burke. “Unsurprisingly, many answers relate to the need for better public transport and a properly functioning housing market. “We're also getting some really interesting feedback on how the city centre needs to evolve, with more pedestrianised streets, rooftop gardens and more places to relax. “We're also receiving some more 'out there' suggestions that we look forward to sharing when we publish the full results in the autumn." In the Great Dublin Survey, Dubliners are also being asked to put forward the qualities of other cities that should be repli-

cated in Dublin. Suggestions so far include the cleanliness of Luxembourg, London's public transport network, Copenhagen's cycling infrastructure and green focus, Hong Kong's safety and Zurich's family friendliness. The Great Dublin Survey is open to people of all ages and will remain live until the end of June. The Chamber will publish the findings of the survey later this year. The findings will then be fed back by to decision makers and used to influence the Chamber's policy work, as it sets out to ensure that Dublin becomes a better place to work, live and visit for both current and future generations. "We are giving Dublin-

ers the opportunity to have their say on what they want and need their city to be like in the future,” Burke continued. “When it comes to quality of life, Dublin currently sits outside the top 30 cities in the world. “By listening to the ideas of the people, we want to see Dublin rise up those rankings and challenge the world's best cities for the standard of living that they offer. “Whether you're 13 or 73 years old, we want to hear from you. “This is your opportunity to shape the future of your city. Dublin is currently a good city to live in. “We want to ensure that in the future it is a great city."

350+ employees in Dublin to volunteer and support three key inner city community projects. And at the same time as the employees in Dublin were helping communities in Dublin 1, teams from Aon’s 50,000 workforce across the globe also helped their local communities to mark the eighth annual global service day for the company. Staff at Aon have volunteered over 390,000 hours serving over 500 charities since 2007 and will continue to build on the initiative in the years ahead. The Aon Dublin team selected three very special community groups - Inner City Helping Homeless (ICHH), The Lourdes Day Care Centre and Rutland National School. The Aon team worked with multiple generations in the inner city to help children at a national school through to the elderly residents of a day care centre. Driven by the belief that everyone has the potential to succeed, teams from Aon worked with the three groups to help empower results in the community. The Aon teams worked with ICHH to provide essentials for the homeless in Dublin, gave their time and expertise to upgrade the décor for the elderly residents of the Lourdes Day Care Centre and helped the next generation to get a foot on the ladder by sharing their work experience with the children of Rutland National School.

Airport cycle held in memory of tragic Rescue 116 crew MEMBERS of Dublin Airport’s Police & Fire Service held a memorial cycle last Sunday week (June 11), in memory of the crew of Rescue 116. Airport Police & Fire Service staff, together with members of An Garda Síochána and the Irish Aviation Authority were joined by some family members and friends of the crew of Rescue 116 for the 116km memorial cycle. Airport Police & Fire Service member and organiser of the event, Bryan Russell, said: “Like everyone, we were absolutely devastated by this tragic event. “Those who work in emergency services share a special connection so when a terrible accident like this occurs it resonates deep

Already, over €3,000 has been raised which is being donated to the R116 Fund.

SPORT GAA STARS ATTEND SKILLS DAY

GAA Museum to host an exciting series of seminars THE GAA Museum will host an exciting and controversial series of seminars exploring the theme of ‘Sport and Politics’ and the effects they have had on one another since the 1870s, at their 2017 Summer School, which runs from Thursday, June 29 to Saturday, July 1.

▪▪ Roisin Ni Chathasaigh, from Dublin, pictured with Dublin hurling star Liam Rushe and Carlow’s Kate Nolan after participating in the camogie competition at the John West Skills’ Day in the National Sports Campus, Abbottstown. The Skills’ Day was an opportunity for Ireland’s rising football, hurling and camogie stars to show their skills ahead of the John West Féile na nÓg and John West Féile na nGael competitions. PHOTO: CODY GLENN/ SPORTSFILE

Attendees lucky enough to secure a ticket will be engaged and challenged as some of the most divisive topics in sport will be discussed by leaders across a plethora of disciplines, such as sociology, politics, sport, and history. National and international experts will contest long held beliefs and bring to light topics not previously considered: how the GAA suffered in the 1890s due to its support for Charles Stewart Parnell; the issues and divisions in Irish soc-

cer that led to the establishment of two separate governing bodies in 1921; the struggle for an Irish identity through the Olympic movement pre-1922; how the Irish republican movement has viewed sport since 1923; and the cultural trauma felt by the people of Liverpool in the aftermath of the 1989 Hillsborough tragedy.      The keynote talk from internationally renowned Dr Harry Edwards, the former Professor Emeritus of Sociology at the University of California, Berkeley, is much anticipated. Doctor Edwards will speak on the history of sport and racial segregation in America from the 1960s. Attendees of the Summer School will have the chance to meet Dr Edwards one-to-one as he signs copies of the 50th anniversary edition of his pioneering

book on sport and struggle, ‘The Revolt of the Black Athlete’. Commenting on this year’s series of seminars, Mark Reynolds, the GAA Museum Archivist, said: “The event is open to the public to attend and is a must for anyone with a keen interest in sport, politics or history. “We are honoured to welcome renowned international guest speakers, including Dr Harry Edwards, Professor John Hughson and Professor Alan Bairner, who will ensure this is an engaging and stimulating experience for all.” Tickets cost €45 per day or €120 for a three day pass. Lunch and tea/coffee are included in the price. Advance booking is required as the event is expected to sell out quickly. Visit www.crokepark.ie/summerschool

Lyme disease

As outbreaks of Lyme disease are reported throughout the country we have put together some information on how to prevent your dog transmitting Lyme disease by preventing tick bites.

Can my dog get Lyme disease? Lyme disease is an inflammatory disease that is mainly spread by ticks. Humans and pets (mostly dogs but in very rare cases cats) can be infected by Lyme disease. Not all ticks carry Lyme disease, the tick must have previously bitten a deer or rodent infected with Lyme disease and then have bitten your dog to pass on the disease. Dogs who are exposed to wildlife or forested areas are at higher risk of contracting Lyme disease. Basically wherever there are ticks there is a chance that your dog could get bitten and become infected.

How do I protect my dog from Lyme disease? The easiest way to prevent Lyme disease is to prevent tick bites. To do this you can do some of the following; Keep your grass cut and bushes trimmed back, remove any fallen leaves from your garden Check your pet daily for ticks especially if they have been outdoors, take extra care to check under your dog’s ears, head, neck underbelly and feet as these are areas where ticks can hide within folds of skin and fur Remove any ticks straight away with a Tick remover comb, designed especially to safely and gently remove ticks from your dog’s skin. We would also recommend speaking to your vet if you find ticks on your dog A good quality spot on product will help prevent Lyme disease by making your dog’s blood distasteful to ticks and eliminating ticks from latching on and feeding longterm. Early diagnosis is crucial to avoid more complicated serious conditions developing, so it is important to contact your vet if you have any concerns. Once the diagnosis is established, antibiotic treatment is usually very effective and early.

Tool used to remove ticks

Symptoms of Lyme disease in dogs Unlike humans your dog won’t display the tell-tale rash associated with an infected tick bite and a dog infected with Lyme disease can suffer a range of symptoms. The most common symptoms can include;

• Swelling and pain in one or more joints • Decrease in appetite • Fatigue, no interest in activity nearly a depressed like state • Fever • Difficulty breathing • Sensitive to touch

Cardboard Gangsters set to be a major hit on both sides of city Paul O’Rourke TWO young men from different sides of the city: one from Darndale, the other from Killiney. They share a common dream to build something exciting together, and set out on a journey to tell others about their new venture. Sounds like the plot of a film, but this story is more about the people behind the camera than in front of it. The two men in question are John Connors and Mark O’Connor and what they created is the new Irish mobster movie, ‘Cardboard Gangsters’. Having previously worked together on ‘King of the Travellers’, which O’Connor wrote and directed, this time out the two

shared writing duties on the script. O’Connor explained to us how that process worked. “John wrote the story on his own, and then he very openly let me come on board and gave me the freedom to go off with it,” he said. Connors, most famous for playing the part of Patrick in ‘Love/Hate’, stars as Jay Connolly, a part-time DJ and low-level drug dealer. When his welfare is cut, Jay and his mates decide it’s time to move in and take over the patch of the area’s biggest drug lord, but this proves to be a major mistake. The film was shot, and is set in Darndale, but according to Connors, it could have been set in any working class area across Dublin.

“The whole film is contained within a two mile radius and it’s very much a neighbourhood film in the way that Boyz n the Hood was,” added O’Connor. The writers aren’t concerned that this very Dublin film will have problems travelling. “We’ve done better abroad than in Ireland,” said Connors, and awards at the Newport and Manchester Film Festivals would seem to back that up. O’Connor gives an example of how the movie has resonated and tells the story of an indigenous Hawaiian man who approached him after the film screened in Wales at Newport. “He told me he was crying at the end and that he just connected with the story because he grew up with the same situation in

a rough part of Hawaii,” he said. The film relies heavily on Irish music and one sequence in particular, containing the Damien Dempsey song ‘Serious’, is particularly effective. “That was the first song I put into the script,” said Connors. “His music is so cinematic.” And as for the message they are trying to get across to their audience, the pair are confident that this is not simply a glorification of gang life violence. “Community leaders in the area read the script and loved the message,” said Connors. “They are the people I’d be getting the most backlash from if it didn’t work.” O’Connor said the father/son relationship and realising the consequences of your actions were two

important ideas they wanted to convey. “The most important message to young people is: don’t get involved in crime,” he added. Starring John Connors, Fionn Walton, Kierston Wareing, Jimmy Smallhorne, Toni O’Rourke, Ciaran McCabe, Paul Alwright, Alan Clinch, Stephen Clinch, John Dalessandro, Damien Dempsey, Gemma-Leah Devereux, Kyle Bradley Donaldson ‘Cardboard Gangsters’ opened in cinemas on June 16.

HERE’S THE REAL STORY TO HERE’S THEYOU’RE REAL STORY TO HERE’S THE REAL STORY WHY THE REAL STORY WHY OUT OFTO SHAPE

YOU’RE OUTOF OFSHAPE SHAPE OUT YOU’RE OUTWHY OFYOU’RE SHAPE

Most people don’t understand why we get out of shape in the first place. You’ve been lead to believe that it’s ALL about eating too much or doing too little.

N

ot according to research. Here’s the real story. After the age of 25 our hormones undergo a dramatic switch around as we stop growing. This causes us to lose muscle, not just from the muscles we see, but also the muscles we don’t see, such as our vital organs. We lose around half a pound of muscle per year after the age of 30. By the time we are 60 we will lose around 30 per cent of our muscle mass! Naturally this can lead to cardiovascular problems, reduced hormone secretion and poorly functioning organs. This muscle loss is called Sarcoponia. Many people know about Osteopenia, which is the reduction in bone density, but few can identify Sarcopenia. Yet this affects everyone and it is the key to why you are out of shape. If you’re not sure, just check any of those soft areas on your body for proof! This muscle loss slows your metabolism by up to 45 per cent. Your muscle is like a furnace, furiously burning food and body fat for energy. However, as you age your furnace begins to cool and if your food intake remains the same, you will gain weight every year. Some studies indicate that up top 90 per cent of the calories you burn are burnt by your muscle tissue and that each pound of muscle tissue burns between 50 and 100 calories per day. Less muscle on your body will equate to fat gain and less energy. So remember this crucial fact, because it is vital: science indicates you should hold on to your muscle tissue not just for your shape but also for your health. However what do people normally do when they want to lose weight? Go on a low calorie/starvation diet and maybe attempt to do aerobic exercise. Guess what? All that will do is encourage more

Renault Zoe will calm ‘range anxiety’ Seán Creedon ‘RANGE anxiety’ seems to be the big worry for potential new owners of electric cars. Everybody agrees that our Government needs to offer more incentives if electric cars are to make any serious impact here. But Paddy Magee, MD of Renault Ireland, has an idea. Paddy suggests that when people leave their regular petrol or diesel cars in to their local garage to be serviced, they should be given an electric vehicle as a courtesy car for a few hours. That seems a reasonable suggestion as ‘range anxiety’ wouldn’t bother drivers of petrol or diesel cars for a short period. The straight-talking Renault boss also thinks that sales and/or marketing people could be encouraged to drive electric cars, if Benefit in Kind (BIK) was abolished. That’s all by way of introducing the new Zoe Z40 where Renault claim you could get up to 400km without charging. In reality, it’s probably closer to 300km in summer and 200km in winter. In addition to Renault, there are now five other companies offering electric motors in Ireland: BMW, Hyundai, Nis-

▪▪ There will be no ‘range anxiety’ with the Renault Zoe. san, Tesla and VW. So the electric market is growing, but very slowly. Tesla claim that you can get up to 600 kilometres with a full charge in one of their cars, but that vehicle will cost you at least €100,000. Renault’s Zoe is more modest with a

starting price of €23,490. That includes the price of the battery, an important item, which can be deemed an extra with some other manufacturers. We took the car on a scenic drive from Stillorgan and around the Blessington lakes to a ‘green’ restaurant near Athy

and came home via the motorway. After all that there’s wasn’t a whole lot of range left. But to be fair, we didn’t know what the original range reading was, as the button was covered off on our trip out of Dublin so that there was no cheating as to who would be the most

economical drivers. Tesla plan to have their own super charging points, but the only one in operation so far is at Ballacolla at Junction 3 on the M8. Meanwhile, with the Zoe you can avail of 1,200 ESB public charging points on the island of Ireland. And of course, you can also charge the car at home. Electric cars don’t tend to be very attractive looking and the Zoe is no different. It’s a small car and to be honest I can’t see many executives buying one, even if BIK was dropped. Inside, the decor is just about average, dark but with a white roof. There is room in the back for three adults. The boot is a decent size, but sadly no spare wheel. My only complaint is that the ‘PRNDS’ marking alongside the gear lever is not highlighted enough. I drove the car during the day and maybe the markings do light up at night. Also, there have been suggestions that people are putting on weight due to eating at various charging points while the car battery is charging! Naturally, there are zero emissions and Renault hope to announce a PCP offer of zero per cent in the coming weeks. So next time you are leaving in your car to be service, ask the garage if they have an electric courtesy car?

This Suzuki S-Cross is a lively car Seán Creedon SUZUKI wouldn’t be considered major players in the Irish car market, but they do have many loyal customers. The company now has 23 dealers around the country and they are hoping that with a range of new cars, which include the revamped S-Cross, new Baleno, the recently launched Ignis and the new Swift, they should be able to gain a stronger foothold in the Irish market. I was in the Peak District

in England recently, where the roads are very similar to Irish country roads, to test the new Suzuki Swift which arrived here this summer. In October last year, I was with a group of Irish motor writers who travelled to Wales to test the revamped S-Cross. In Wales we got an opportunity to drive on to the famous Great Orme just outside Llandudno. Access to the Great Orme costs two pounds fifty pence, but it was money well spent on what is only one of two roll roads in the UK. Back in Ireland last week,

my S-Cross test car came in a lovely shade of red. Red is a colour that will give you a lift on even the dullest day of the year and I’m told that it’s also the best colour to own when thinking about a trade-in. The main change in this version of the S-Cross is the 1.0 Boosterjet engine which provides plenty of power in what I would describe as a very lively car. Apart from the new engine, the other big change is the impressive new-style grille at the front, which gives the car a proper SUV look. And the

▪▪ This Suzuki S-Cross is an impressive car. LED lights do add a touch of class to the car. Inside, the infotainment screen certainly catches your eye, but it doesn’t really take over the dash area. Suzuki say that one of the main complaints about the old model was the quality of the materials used inside the car; they have remedied that problem now by using softer materials in the cabin. There is plenty of room

for five adults and the car handled very well for me on motorways and indeed on country boreens. Again, the words ‘lively’ and ‘frugal’ keep coming into my head. There is good space in the boot, 430 litres to be exact, which is the same as a Nissan Qashqai, but sadly no spare wheel. No real complaints, but naturally I would have preferred a spare wheel to the

repair kit provided. But on the plus side, it had a proper old-fashioned handbrake, which is always a plus. Prices start at €20,995, while the top of the range model I drove will cost you €25,995. The 1.6-litre diesel costs another thousand euro. Road tax is €200. Lots of extras in my test model such as reversing camera, also available with a full length sunroof.

The entry level price, which is very competitive, comes in at €1,000 more than the Vitara, which is aimed at ‘singletons’, while Suzuki is definitely aiming the S-Cross at the family car market where they are willing to take on the likes of the Qashqai and the Skoda Yeti. You can get details of the S-Cross and all cars in the Suzuki range at www.suzuki. ie

ŠKODA drivers are happiest car owners A recent survey in the UK by Driver Power has revealed that ŠKODA customers are the happiest car owners. The brand secured an incredible gold rush of awards in the Driver Power 2017 New Car Survey with the Superb and Yeti proving to be the star performers, taking first and second place in the overall Car of the Year ranking. The duo also took top honours in their respective segment categories, outscoring the competition in the survey’s individual vehicle attribute sections. In total, ŠKODA was awarded 10 Gold, Silver and Bronze awards. Now in its 16th year, the Driver Power New Car Survey generates results based on feedback from owners and delivers a true repre-

all its competitors in the Interior and Comfort category. Completing a remarkable haul of awards, the Superb also took gold in the Practicality and Boot Space category and earned a bronze award in the Exterior Design category. Hot on the Superb’s tail, the Yeti comfortably secured gold in the Mid-Size SUV sector and silver in the Overall Car of the Year rankings. A former winner of the Driver Power survey in 2014, the Yeti was also awarded bronze for Interior and Comfort, and took silver in the Reliability and Build Quality categories. Not to be outdone by its larger ŠKODA siblings, the Fabia saw off tough competition to be named Best Small Car – winning the brand’s sixth gold award in the process.

EDUCATION

New project to improve mental health A MAJOR project to improve young people's mental health in the higher education sector in Ireland has been launched.

The potential of this project will allow my department identify what students need in relation to mental health,” she added.

The project was announced by the Union of Students in Ireland (USI) the HSE, National Office of Suicide Prevention (NOSP) and Minister for Mental Health and Older People, Helen McEntee. USI will receive funding to hire a Mental Health Project Manager who will conduct research in students’ mental health through a national third level mental campaign.

The project, which is set to start in July, will see USI working with key stakeholders across the country in mental health to break mental health stigma, promote services and train student leaders to identify and respond to their peers’ mental health needs. Speaking the launch of the project, USI President Annie Hoey said: “USI is

proud to be partnering with the HSE, NOSP and the Minister for Mental Health and Older People in this new exciting venture. “Annually USI has run a major national third level mental health campaign, ‘Chats for Change’ and we are excited to see the campaign develop further, while also gathering research on what students need and

want from mental health services. “We’re keen to discover what is the main contributing factor to one's mental health and how the student movement can tackle those needs to best support young people and students in Ireland.” Minister McEntee said her department was delighted to be working more closely with USI to see the project grow. “The potential of this project will allow my department identify what students need in relation to mental health,” she added. “We’re looking forward

▪▪ The new project will begin in July and last for nine months. to seeing how Government and the department can approach students in relation to mental health, teach resilience and promoting services. “We see the USI as a key stakeholder in this and I am looking forward to the research and the campaigns

to come from this collaborative project.” The Mental Health Project Manager will integrate national level partnerships with local Students’ Unions and develop a core student-focused approach to mental health in Ireland. The project will provide

ongoing advice and support to students via campaign messaging, training for student leaders and the development of workshops for students to be run out across the country in third level institutions. The project will run for nine months.

between teacher supply and demand in the medium to long term,” he said. “In this light, I note with interest that the Report highlights how essential it will be to use more and better data analysis to support this goal. “The learners in our education system are entitled to a high quality learning experience. “A more reliable supply of teachers which meets the identified needs of the system, and which continues to adhere to the high standards set down by the Teaching Council, is therefore really crucial.” The Minister says he has asked his officials to consider how the development of a model can be progressed from within available resources. “As part of this process, engagement with the Higher Education Authority and providers of initial teacher education programmes will be necessary in order to ensure that the supply of teachers

dinated effort between the Department, the Teaching Council and the Higher Education Authority to analyse the number of teachers required by the education system,” he said. “This report represents an important step in ensuring that all stakeholders in the system enhance our collaboration so as to adopt a more targeted approach to meeting the identified needs of the students in our education system. “As a Council, we are satisfied that our advice on this matter can help to sustain and maintain the high standing of teaching as a profession in Ireland and, as a result, to support and develop the quality of students' learning.”

EMPLOYMENT/BUSINESS

Temping: the pros outweigh the cons Cormac Spencer CANDIDATES searching for a new job are united in terms of what they are looking for – a high salary (naturally!), and something which interests and motivates them and which offers a good work life balance in terms of hours, commute and holidays. However, this unanimity is lacking in the type of contract people will consider regardless of whether or not it meets the above criteria. Permanent roles are seen as the most desirable option, while many are reticent to consider temporary assignments or ‘temp jobs’ (which operate on a week to week basis and are paid through agency). It’s not impossible to understand this perspective from someone in permanent employment as taking up a temp position does entail a loss of job security, but why would someone without a job and looking for work turn down an opportunity that suits their skills, experience and salary expectations? While there are drawbacks to temping, the pros outweigh the cons. For people looking to enter or re-enter the workforce, it allows them to gain recent experience and enhance their skills making them a more attractive prospect to future employers. It also provides a great opportunity for those looking to transition to a new industry and gain experience in their preferred field. In what is a busy jobs market, employers realise the immediate nature of temp assignments mean their choice of candidates is limited, and are therefore more open to hiring capable people who may not be the perfect match on paper. Whereas the same CV put forward for a permanent role may be rejected, time constraints offer candidates a foot in the door which can be leveraged to gain future opportunities. Time and time again I see candidates offered perma-

permanent vacancies arising within the company, meaning taking up a temp role can open up opportunities. The old mantra of being easier to get a job when you have a job holds true. Finally, a common misconception of temping is that it precludes ▪▪ While there are drawbacks to temping, the pros people from looking for a outweigh the cons. permanent job.

work, are grown up enough to know that most people will eventually want a permanent job, and will accommodate reasonable requests for time off for interviews. If someone does secure a job then 1-2 weeks’ notice to your temp employer will suffice. There are more and more temp opportunities available, so if you are out of work, seeking to enter the workforce, or hoping to change career, why not open yourself up to the possibilities out there, gain experience, learn new systems, and get some money in your back pocket while you are at it?
