Roadshow delivers a hardhitting message to students DRIVING a car in real life is not a computer game where you get a chance to reload. That was the hardhitting message that was presented to 700 Transition Year students attending the recent AXA Roadsafe Roadshow run in partnership with South Dublin County Council and emergency services at the Red Cow Moran Hotel. AXA said they were delighted to be working with South Dublin County Council to bring the AXA Roadsafe Roadshow to the Southside. This is the sixth AXA Roadsafe Roadshow of the winter schedule that already visited Dun Laoghaire, Kildare, Kerry and Fingal County Council at the end of last year and Cork last month. Further shows are planned this month, in Mayo and Roscommon with Longford taking

place in March. The AXA Roadsafe Roadshow is aimed primarily at Transition Year students in secondary schools. It is based on an awardwinning format and depicts graphically how a night out can end in tragedy. The show depicts what happens through driver inexperience and overconfidence with the aim to educate and highlight the various safety skills these young students need before they get behind the wheel of a car. Using a backdrop of contemporary music, video clips and television advertisements, the story is told by Garda David Barron, paramedic Tony Kelly, Fire Officer Darren O’Connor and A&E Consultant, Dr Philip D’Arcy. The show culminates

collisions. “The effects are well documented - too many people are being killed on our roads or are being injured for life. Young people are particularly over-represented, and we want to educate these young people to be safe and responsible drivers of the future. “This event tells the reallife stories of people who deal with the needless carnage caused by speed, drink and drugs on Irish roads. The show brings Pictured at the roadshow are Orla Behan and Chloe home the pain caused by McDonnell, Blessington Community College, with the unnecessary road crashes Mayor of South Dublin, Vicki Casserly. and the impact on people and how it has changed have had to suffer since in a presentation by Leo their lives forever.” Lieghio who tragically lost that terrible day.

Over half of all fatalities have been either a driver or passenger and one third of all collisions had excessive speed as a factor. One third of all driver and passenger fatalities were not wearing a seatbelt at the time of collision.

Joanna Siewierska. In 2018, students from Dublin City University (DCU) staged protests against plans to raise rents by almost 30 per cent on privately owned student accommodation located beside the college. According to the UCD spokesperson, the rent increases will be reviewed once three years are up, allowing them to potentially reduce the increases or freeze them if financially possible. UCDSU were asking candidates in the General Election to respond to a worsening student housing crisis, by pledging to deliver affordable beds and a freeze on increasing campus rent. The union is also demanding that steps are taken to support those students who would be the worst affected.

Dermot cuts the ribbon on new family rooms at LauraLynn CELEBRITY architect and TV star, Dermot Bannon, has officially opened newly refurbished family accommodation at LauraLynn’s Children’s Hospice. Dermot visited the Southside charity during the week to cut the red tape on the new rooms at Ireland’s only children’s hospice. LauraLynn has four family bedrooms alongside a living space and kitchen area allowing entire families to book in for short stays at the hospice. These short stays allow the child using the service, their parents and any siblings they may have to enjoy quality time together making memories as a family. Parents can enjoy just being mums and dads with the medical needs of their child fully taken care of.

This specialised family accommodation was in need of some improvements, as it was over eight-years-old and felt a little outdated. However, with no dedicated State funding a renovation project was not something that seemed possible. This year alone over €4.6m of LauraLynn’s annual running costs will need to be met via fundraised income. Then, in May 2019, Chris Mackin, one of the owners of Malmac Construction, dropped in to say that he would love to help out if there was any building work he could assist with and the project was born. Belinda Rohan, owner of Belinda Rohan Interiors came on board offering her services free of charge working alongside Malmac Construction. The entire renovation project had no cost to the

charity. Liam Ryan is an 11-yearold boy who has been coming to LauraLynn for four years now. Liam’s mum Niamh said: “LauraLynn is like home away from home for us. “It's a lovely place for our family to come knowing that Liam is being minded and loved and is safe and happy. “We get to just be Mam, Dad and brother as all of Liam's medical and care needs are looked after by the lovely staff. “But LauraLynn is so much more than that. We all feel minded as the fantastic staff think of our whole family and this project has created such beautiful relaxing spaces for all of us to rest and feel so refreshed after our stay.” Speaking at the official opening of the newly refurbished family accommodation, Dermot

said: “I was honoured to be asked to open the newly refurbished bedrooms and gathering space for parents and families of children who

stay with LauraLynn. “The days of respite that the families get are a lifeline and precious to them. The new rooms that have been created by the

donated time of Belinda and Malmac the builders are really beautiful and wrap a blanket of care around the families for their stay.”

LauraLynn provides a range of services including symptom management for children; music and play therapy; and psychological support.

Thuggery on Luas needs to be tackled TONY McCULLAGH Editor Dublin People Group t.mccullagh@dublinpeople.com

THE incoming Government will have a long list of election promises to make good on, from reducing hospital waiting lists to solving the housing crisis. Crime was also a major issue on the doorsteps, with ongoing feuding and the gruesome murder of a teenager providing an unsettling backdrop to

the election campaign. While our politicians will be under pressure to prioritise many different issues, there is one area that I believe needs their immediate focus – the safety of passengers and staff across our public transport network. The Luas Red Line was once again back in the headlines for all the wrong reasons last month when a woman’s hair was set alight by a gang of thugs – an incident that caused chaos and distress for everyone on board, not least the victim. The Luas has served us well since first coming into operation in 2004. It has transformed the look and sound of the city and boosted property

The Kylemore Luas stop on the Naas Road.. FILE PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA prices along its routes. Despite the extension of the Luas out as far as Broombridge, the Northside barely got a look in. Between them, the Red and Green Lines benefit large sections of the Southside, linking the city centre with Tallaght and Cherrywood/Brides Glen respectively. Given the amount of hassle regularly reported on Red Line services, I wonder, in hindsight, if the Government would have been better off providing a rail link to Dublin Airport instead of spending money

on a public transport route so prone to anti-social behaviour. This newspaper recently reported that senior citizens are afraid to use Luas services on the Red Line for fear of being intimidated or terrorised by out of control teenagers. The appalling behaviour on board the trams can range from smoking and drinking to racial abuse and physical assaults. The low-life engaged in this type of activity are most likely serial fare evaders, depriving the Luas operators of income – money that could be spent on beefing up security

measures. But hiring additional private security staff to patrol the Luas is only a sticking plaster solution. Ultimately what is needed is a dedicated Garda transport unit with powers of arrest and the requisite training to deal with public order incidents. This is something that needs to be rolled out across the DART, commuter rail and bus networks. The next Ministers for Justice and Transport would do well to start with the Luas Red Line which has become a byword for trouble.

They are calling it puppy love at Dundrum Valentine events DUNDRUM Town Centre and the DSPCA are teaming up to host a series of ‘Lonely Paws’ events in the centre over St Valentine’s weekend. There are hundreds of animals looking for homes across Ireland, and hundreds of willing owners looking to bring a pet into their lives. Dundrum Town Centre and the DSPCA are now offering the chance for people to press paws on their pet-less existence and give a lonely bark its perfect furever home. Instead of a human Valentine, guests can come along and find their ‘Pet Palentine’, and change their lives for the better in the process. The DSPCA will be making the initial matches either via the profiles displayed on Level 1 in the centre, or at the adoption parades on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 between

12-4pm in Town Square. Once you have set eyes on your perfect match, the DSPCA will take you through the next steps to get the adoption process started. It’s a perfect opportunity for people who can offer animals a good home to come along, find the right pet for them and pupgrade both their happiness permanently. This year marks the DSPCA’s 180th year in operation and they have decided that there is no other way to start the anniversary than by a weekend ‘furrenzy’ of matching pets with their forever families. Dundrum Town Centre General Manager Don Nugent said: “We are delighted to partner with the DSPCA and provide a fun, interactive environment allowing pets and owners to be matched thoroughly

to prevent dogs being surrendered in the future. “We look forward to hosting ‘Lonely Paws’ at Dundrum Town Centre and hopefully help reduce the numbers of animals looking for their home.” Brian Gillen, CEO of the DSPCA, added: “We are delighted to be partnering with Dundrum Town Centre for the ‘Lonely Paws’ event. “We see pets as part of the family and know how much they enrich our lives. We look forward to meeting lots of potential new pet owners for the animals in our care at Dundrum Town Centre.” On the feline front, a number of vets across Dublin are participating in the DSPCA’s ‘Tom Cat Tenner’ campaign throughout February. The initiative hopes to limit the number of kittens being born and DSPCA Ambassador Thalia Heffernan is pictured with Molly and Zippy at the launch of the ‘Lonely Paws’ events abandoned. taking place this weekend.

legends Relief as college Sporting launch new sensory move is reversed hub in the Aviva Áine O’Boyle A DECISION has been made to stop Griffeen Community College from moving to Kingswood Community College. The decision was made Department of Education and Skills following much criticism from parents and local politicians. A spokesperson for the Department of Education and Skills said: “Following consideration of the various options to accommodate Griffeen Community College, it has been agreed that the school will remain at its current location in Kishoge Community College which will be further enhanced with additional temporary accommodation.” An attempt to move the school had been publicly criticised by Sinn Féin TD, Seán Crowe, who said concerned parents

had contacted him to point out that Kingswood Community College was already at maximum capacity and turning away students. “It will already have 700 plus students in September, and 260 plus students from Griffeen Community College will be added,” Deputy Crowe claimed. He added that the proposed move was not part of the original plan for Kingswood Community College and that it would have meant that local pupils from the catchment area would not get a place there in September, while students from Griffen Community College would be bussed in every day from Lucan. "The additional traffic would also cause further chaos for residents in the area and create additional problems for commuters,” he argued.

Deputy Crowe had called on the Minister for Education to immediately reverse the decision and to come up with a better solution to the issue, “which would benefit both schools and their pupils”. Griffeen Community College, which is currently based in the Kishoge Community College in Lucan, was told that

from September 2020 students would be sent to Kingswood Community College. Several parents with students in Griffeen Community College expressed relief at the decision to halt the move. They had previously voiced concerns about the impact that it could have had on their children’s mental health.

A NEW sensory hub has been installed in the Aviva Stadium for fans attending matches including all the Six Nations home fixtures. The hub includes a Cubbie Booth sensory solution.

categories of this year’s All Ireland Community & Council Awards. Taking place in Croke Park on Saturday, February 15, the awards are presented by IPB Insurance and LAMA. The event recognises communities and councils across Ireland whose hard work remains widely unrecognised. Over 400 attendees are expected to turn out to this year’s highly anticipated event. The council has been chosen in the category of Best Social Housing Initiative for 132 Pottery Road, which is a small development of four A-rated one bedroom apartments on the outskirts of Dún Laoghaire. With views of the Dublin Mountains and easy access to public transport, these beautifully designed homes are among the most sought-

Ireland’s first Monna Bench, a solar powered smart cycling station with phone and bike charging points and loaded with bike repair tools is pictured above. PHOTO: PETER CAVANAGH after properties in Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council's housing stock. The world’s first Monna, a solar powered cycling bench, has been selected in the category of Best Energy Smart Initiative. In this initiative the council demonstrated the potential of renewable

energy by piloting two solar powered benches with mobile phone and electric bike charging facilities in Dún Laoghaire and Sandyford. Social enterprises, councils, organisations, projects and individuals working within the community all entered this years’ event, which boasts

over 19 categories. Entrants to this year’s awards, which experienced the highest level of competition yet, were required to provide information on the project they were submitting, the people involved and their achievements over the past year. The main award, the

much anticipated Grand Prix title, goes to the project that has received the highest level of recognition from judges. Cathaoirleach, Cllr Shay Brennan, said: “I am delighted that the innovative nature of the use of council property has provided for additional high-quality public housing, connected to their communities and close to sustainable transport options. “Also, the council has consistently shown leadership by being a national test-bed for a wide range of energy innovations, from internal systems to public amenities. “Monna, the solar powered cycling bench promotes and encourages the use of the natural solar power, which ties in with the council’s goals of promoting a clean and healthy environment.”

The announcement was made by the South Dublin Local Enterprise Office (LEO), as part of the release of a jampacked schedule of events between March 2 and 6 for Local Enterprise Week 2020.

Throughout the course of the week, entrepreneurs of all ages will have the opportunity to book a place to participate in both paid and free of charge group sessions and one-toone mentoring.

services their local LEO provides by way of support and education. It also gives entrepreneurs and owner managers the opportunity to network and learn not only from experts and speakers but also from each other. “Local Enterprise Week’s common goal is to help small and micro businesses to exceed in today’s competitive marketplace.”

Councillors are given update on new children’s hospital LOCAL councillors were given an update on the progress of the new children’s hospital project recently. Representatives of the National Paediatric Hospital Development Board (NPHDB) and Children’s Health Ireland (CHI) gave the presentation to the Dublin City Council South Central Area Committee. The new children’s hospital is currently under construction on the campus shared with St James’s Hospital. It’s due to be completed by the end of 2022 and, following a period of transition and commissioning, is scheduled to be opened by CHI in 2023. Councillors received an update on the project’s Community Benefit Programme, which is considered to be one of the most pioneering of its

kind in Ireland. The overarching objective of the Community Benefit Programme is to maximise the benefit to the local community from the new children’s hospital, from the construction phase to being fully operational. Established four years ago, the programme is managed by a full-time Community Benefit Programme Manager employed by the NPHDB, Ingrid McElroy, and is led by an Oversight Group chaired by Independent chair, Gordon Jeyes. Members of the group include St Teresa’s Gardens Regeneration Board, Dublin City Council, Dolphin House & Park Regeneration Board, the NPHDB, Inchicore Regeneration Consultation Forum, the Department of Employment Affairs and

Social Protection, HSE, Kilmainham Inchicore Network, City of Dublin Education & Training Board, Fatima Groups United, Dublin Inner City Community Coop, Children’s Health Ireland, Dublin South City Partnership, and St James’s Hospital. The focus of the independent Community Benefit Oversight Group is to maximise employment and training opportunities, to support local business, particularly small and social enterprises, to raise aspirations through education and to build community health and wellbeing. The NPHDB is using pioneering methods to ensure that the local community benefits as much as possible, including innovative ‘community benefit clauses’ in all project

related construction contracts, and ‘reserved contracts’ for social enterprises. It is one of the first public projects of its kind to use both. Together with the main contractor BAM and the design team, the NPHDB has held two ‘Meet the Buyer’ events to inform businesses about upcoming opportunities, and BAM has spent €2.5 million to date on local contracts and suppliers. Separately, three ‘reserved contracts’ have been awarded to local social enterprises, a cleaning contract to the F2 Centre, a catering contract to the Arch Café, and We Make Good, Ireland's first social enterprise design brand. To raise the aspirations of local children and young people, a series of initiatives have been undertaken, including a street art project on which

three local youth groups collaborated. More than 1,000 children and young people have participated in various events delivered through the project’s Community

Benefit Programme in the last four years. Gordon Jeyes, Independent Chairman of the Community Benefit Oversight Group said: “Thanks to the commitment of local

community groups and public agencies, including Dublin City Council, a very good start has been made to maximise the benefits of the new children’s hospital for the community.”

An update on the new children’s hospital project was delivered to local councillors.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

This Is How We Dance About The Author DAVID Diebold is a former features and magazine editor who worked on a number of national titles. He has written for the Irish Independent, Irish Daily Mail and for The Herald, where his regular weekly column of seven years made the judges’ shortlist for the National Newspapers of Ireland Feature Writer of the Year Award in 2011, and NewsBrand Ireland Popular Columnist of the Year in 2016. His writing featured in Press Gang, Tales from the Glory Days of Irish Newspapers (New Island, 2015), and has appeared in Spontaneity arts magazine. David was raised in South Dublin by his maternal grandfather. He was a World War Two veteran waist gunner on a B17 Flying Fortress who survived 24 combat missions over Germany.

A FLASH memoir engages readers at an emotional level so that they come away changed by a new level of understanding, however subtle, into what it means to be human. In other words, a brief memoir essay carries with it the power to move readers. From struggling actor to wannabe cook, aspiring filmmaker and national newspaper hack, David Diebold’s unconventional life has placed him in some bizarre and precarious predicaments. He has blagged his way on stage with the Kirov Ballet for an entire run of Le Corsaire without ever having danced; fibbed his way into a busy kitchen and cooked for Senator Ted Kennedy; and completely cocked up a job as a stripping vicar. Strangest of all, perhaps, is the family backdrop to this rather odd journey, in which David discovered that his sister was actually his mother, and his real father, a former roadie with American hit band Three Dog Night, who he tracked down with a private investigator, was a top movie special effects man for Hollywood. By turns humorous and heartbreaking, these 52 vignettes of life, love and loss are soulsearching, searingly honest, and just plain strange. What the reviewers said: ‘Diebold’s stories read like dispatches from a street-smart disciple of chaos theory under deep cover. Life-affirming stuff from a renegade spirit.’ —Eamon Carr, journalist. ‘Penned with great wisdom, This Is How We Dance is both a survivor’s tale and a survival manual for anyone who’s gotten mixed up with the business of families’ —Damian Corless.

Life and death features in this brand new novel THE Revenge of The Stoned Rats (the novel previously known as The Prince) by Eddie Smyth, takes a look at the life of Billy Sikes. Neglected and abused, especially by his awful cousin Agnes, life will never be the same again for the ultra-imaginative young Billy, when his mysterious half-brother Herbert suddenly arrives into it. Set in Dublin in the 1970’s, Billy tells his story to a background noise of the preaching of the Catholic Church, the ‘Troubles’ in Northern Ireland and the war in Vietnam, the warbling of popular music, and the wisdom of his revered, older cousin Anna. Life and death, heaven and hell, and everything in between. Gangs of marauding skinheads, persecuted dwarfs, put-upon amateur dramatists and discommoded vagrants, vengeful rats, mythical

icons and fictional heroes, all surface in a river of consciousness that James Joyce, himself, could have been proud of. Eddie Smyth was born in Dublin in 1961. He has worked as a stores and warehouse operative, fork-lift driver, motorcycle courier, and as a doorto-door and telephone sales person. His novel The Prince was published in 1996. He now lives in Slane, in County Meath. The novel is now available to buy from Amazon in both paperback and kindle formats, and also from local bookshops countrywide including, in Dublin, The Winding Stair on Ormond Quay, Alan Hanna’s Bookshop in Rathmines, The Village Bookshop in Terenure, The Rathfarnham Bookshop, The Skerries Bookshop and Manor Books in Malahide.

Winners are alright at the big Dublin Racing Festival LEOPARDSTOWN came alive on the first weekend of February as a crowd of 14,204 descended on the Southside race course for the first day of the Dublin Racing Festival. Wonder-mare Honeysuckle produced the performance of her career to take the PCI

Irish Champion Hurdle on an afternoon her rider Rachael Blackmore described as "magic". Dublin Racing Festival came to a rapturous close on the Sunday with Delta Work taking the Grade 1 Paddy Power Gold Cup to complete a treble for Gordon Elliott.

Leopardstown CEO, Tim Husbands, said: "It has been an incredible weekend. The racing was extremely competitive and top quality which created a fantastic atmosphere. I would like to thank all the trainers, owners and our partners for contributing to this.

“The support of everyone is key to success and this weekend has reinforced the importance of Dublin Racing Festival for the industry and racegoers alike." Our photographer Darren Kinsella was there to capture some of the action.

Success for Maxi Zoo’s Give Paw campaign IRELAND’S largest pet retailer, Maxi Zoo, has announced that its annual ‘Friendship Connects, Give Paw’ fundraising campaign has raised a phenomenal €38,252 for charity partner, Dogs Trust. The campaign, which ran from October to January, was launched by top Irish Model and TV personality Glenda Gilson and her very own fourlegged friend, Yazz. The funds raised in the campaign’s fourth year saw Maxi Zoo sell limited edition ‘Give Paw’ bracelets for €2.50 each across their 20 stores nationwide, with 100 percent of the proceeds going to Dogs Trust. These vital funds will now be used to provide all of the dogs in the Dogs Trust rehoming centre with the resources they so deserve, from food and dog treats, to interactive toys. “As a true dog lover I’m delighted to have been part of this campaign which raised an incredible amount of money for

Dogs Trust,” said Glenda Gilson. “Every dog deserves a second chance and Dogs Trust works so hard to find them their forever home, which is why this campaign was so special.” Anthony Cremin, Marketing Manager of Maxi Zoo Ireland said the pet retailer was grateful to everyone who supported the ‘Give Paw’ campaign. “We are very pleased to be able to contribute the outstanding amount of €38,252 to our very deserving charity partner,” he said. “As a nation of pet lovers, it’s no surprise that the public really gets behind this campaign every year, so we’d like to thank our customers, first and foremost, for helping us to make a real difference in this way.” Louise Sherwin, Philanthropy and Corporate Fundraising at Dogs Trust, said the canine charity was thrilled with the amount the campaign raised for the dogs and puppies in its rehoming centre.

“Maxi Zoo shares our passion for giving our dogs the very best care we can, and their efforts, and those of their customers, will go a long way towards ensuring that the dogs in our care are as happy and comfortable as possible,” she added. “On behalf of all our furry friends here in Dogs Trust, I extend our sincerest thanks to all those who supported this amazing Maxi Zoo campaign.” ‘ Friendship Connects, Give Paw’ is an annual campaign that is run by Maxi Zoo and the Fressnapf Group across Europe. The 2019 campaign raised a total €1.3 million for animal charities across Europe. Maxi Zoo has over 175 employees in 20 stores across Ireland. For further information about getting involved in Maxi Zoo’s 2020 charity initiatives, chat to the pet experts at Maxi Zoo in Tallaght, Leopardstown, Finglas, Omni Park, Liffey Valley, Blanchardstown or

Clarehall. You can also visit @ MaxiZooIreland on Facebook, or www. maxizoo.ie and www. dogstrust.ie.

DOG WEEK

The Dublin People Newspaper has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogs. Top dog this week is Sonny, an older gentleman (nine years young), but don't be fooled; this handsome man has bundles of energy. He loves to play with his toys but also loves a good cuddle, he is super friendly both with dogs and people, so it's important Sonny lives with another dog! Sonny's ideal home would be with a family with another dog for him to play with and cuddle up to, he also loves children but given his exuberance, there is a potential for him to bowl smaller children over. As Sonny loves attention so much, he would struggle being left been alone for long periods, so he is looking for a home where this won’t happen. If you have room in your heart and home for Sonny then contact Dogs Trust on 01-8791000.

Give a Dog a Home Today ! Phone us on 01 8791000 Dogs Trust is based in Finglas, just off exit 5 on the M50. Map and directions can be found on their website at www.dogstrust.ie.

The new Ionic gets a facelift Seán Creedon HYUNDAI has been doing very well in Ireland in recent years with their SUVs and small petrol and diesel cars selling hot cakes. Now the Korean company are also one of the leaders in the sales of electric cars here. I was very impressed with the range of approximately 450km in the Hyundai Kona which I drove last year. Named after the Kona district on the Big Island of Hawaii, the Kona continued Hyundai’s new dynamic design identity and dedication to class leading technology. Last week I got to test the revamped version of Hyundai’s Ionic, where the range is around 290km. The Kona will cost you almost 40k, while the Ionic price is €34,850. Last year the Government announced ambitious plans to have one million electric cars on Irish roads by the year 2030. There are approximately

2.7 million vehicles on Irish roads right now and just over 5,000 of those are electric. So if we are to achieve the Government’s target every new car being sold today would have to be electric. There were suggestions that the Government would ban petrol and diesel cars after 2030, but as an opposition TD correctly pointed out we no longer have a motor manufacturing business in Ireland, so no Irish Government can make that claim. Ultimately any decisions about ending petrol and diesel cars will be made by the mass manufacturers. The prices will have to drop a lot more, batteries will have to be improved and we will need to see a massive investment in the charging points all over the country before we see any dramatic switch to electric cars. For now the charging system works reasonably well, for the number of electric cars that are on

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV is an electric vehicle & so much more. A fusion of electric and petrol technology, giving a combined range of 600KM that delivers absolute driving freedom. And with striking design, cutting-edge safety features and powerful four-wheel drive, it has the versatility and performance to go wherever your journey takes you.

There is a decent-sized boot, but sadly no spare wheel. Also that rear window, which has a bar across it, reminded me of rear window in the old Honda Civic. I spent a lot of time last week trying out new radio

So to the Ionic, which has got a facelift. Updates include reworked styling inside and out, revised connectivity features and a fresh electric drivetrain, with a larger capacity battery and a new regenerative braking system borrowed from the Kona Electric. Up to now electric cars were not very attractive, but while the Ioniq doesn’t solve the range issue, it certainly has improved the look of electric cars. The Ioniq uses the same platform as its cousin the Kia Niro. Exterior revisions for the Ioniq range include updated front and rear bumpers, new day-time running lights and redesigned LED headlights and taillights. PHEV and Electric models

device in store, allowing shoppers to instantly donate amounts of €3, €5, €10 or €20 to charity, simply by tapping their card or mobile device at the point of sale. Following the campaign’s success DublinTown and Visa are making the ‘Tap to Give for Good’ charity partnership a yearlong fundraiser that will help another three charities. Contactless donation devices will be in 20 businesses across the city throughout the year, and all money raised will be distributed equally to the chosen charity beneficiaries at the end of the year. DublinTown chief executive Richard Guiney said they were delighted to have been involved in this initiative.

“Not only was Dublin City Centre’s business community, and its customers, able to assist three very worthy charitable organisations, but we have demonstrated the willingness of both the business community and the public to embrace contactless technology as the future for payments,” said Mr Guiney. “Following the success of the campaign, DublinTown and our members are committed to host the charitable contactless payment terminals all year round, bringing the benefits to these worthy causes and cementing Dublin’s reputation as a generous, forward looking city of which we can all be proud.” Philip Konopik, Country

Manager, Ireland at Visa, added: “We were delighted to partner with DublinTown to make it easier and more convenient for consumers to donate to deserving charities over the festive season. “Contactless payments are more popular than ever before in Ireland, and with the support of participating merchants and retailers across the capital, we tapped into the consumer preference for digital payments and made a positive contribution to the ‘Tap to Give for Good’ campaign. “Our charity partners will benefit greatly from this donation, and we would like to thank shoppers for their generosity over the Christmas period.”

January 2019 Minister Doherty said: "The number of people on the Live Register in January 2020 is the lowest number recorded in the seasonally adjusted series since January 2008. “We have continued to make huge inroads into tackling unemployment in every region and Government policies have ensured a reduction in the unemployment rate by more than two thirds since its peak. “As a result, the country is now benefiting from a strong workforce and a thriving economy. We will continue to focus on tackling the remaining levels of unemployment and ensure that everyone who is able to work can find a job – the best guarantee of an improved standard of living.”

What does your furniture choice really say about you? EVER hear the phrase ‘dress how you want to be addressed’? When we get dressed every day it can be a direct reflection of how we feel, what our schedules might entail, and even reflect our personality. Ever notice how we might dress in darker colours in winter than we do in spring? Well, if you think your clothes reflect you, imagine what your home décor says about you! It’s true what they say, when our words fail, our interior speaks for us. Today, EZ Living Furniture sheds some light on what we are saying, or in fact, not saying by the décor we choose to surround ourselves by. 1. ARE YOU BOLD? If your home is surrounded by more primary colours than neutral colours, it’s safe to say you like expressing yourself. You’re confident, loud and proud. Whereas if you’re drawn to more neutral tones and pastel shades, you’re a peacemaker at heart. You enjoy the little things in life and refrain from being the centre of attention. 2. ARE YOU A PEOPLE’S PERSON? The amount of seating areas in your home is a direct result of just how social you are. If you have multiple seating areas and even back up stools, this is a sure indication that three is far from a crowd. If you have minimal seating you are more introverted in nature and find yourself recharging in your own company. In fact two might be the perfect company. 3. ARE YOU UP THE WALLS? When people have different artwork or boards with photos and twine on their wall, it shows they welcome change. This love for change is further heightened when you’re comfortable with changing up your walls décor. 4. ARE YOU BARELY THERE? When a person is afraid of committing to

surrounded by the boxes of all your worldly goods, lovingly packed and labelled, can be exciting. But moving home can also be stressful, so, like most things in life, having a plan is a good idea. Before closing the door, literally and figuratively, on one stage of your life, you need to be sure some important tasks are completed, according to Mark Browne, CEO of moving and storage experts, Buska Boxes. Follow the advice below and you should be in for a smooth move. GIVE NOTICE If renting, give the required notice and let your landlord know your planned moving date, confirming any terms around final payments and your deposit. Cancel local memberships, like gyms, that you won’t be using any longer, as well as deliveries like milk or newspapers, and pay outstanding bills.

INSURANCE AND UTILITIES Cancel or transfer your home cover and, if paying property tax, advise the Revenue of your move. Confirm your new address for the electoral

register too at www. checktheregister.ie/ Advise utility providers like the gas, electricity, bin collection, phone/ broadband and TV companies, and either transfer or close the

accounts, in writing, also noting any meter readings you submit and when. Cancel local authority parking permits and apply for new ones at your new home, if needed. GET MOVERS

Book a removals service weeks, if not months, in advance, particularly if you’re among the majority who need to get out of rental accommodation towards the end of the month.

SOUTHSIDE PEOPLE 12.02.20 Check the insurance the company offers, including maximum cover value, and any conditions around who does the packing. If organising your own move, environmentallyfriendly Buska Boxes provide clean, ready-topack lidded plastic boxes that make moving easier. Waterproof and crushproof, they have easy-grip handles and are stackable for safe moving with the wheeled dolly supplied. CHANGE OF ADDRESS Email or post printed cards to friends and contacts with your new address. Apply online for An Post’s redirection service to forward your mail to your new address, for up to a year, either here or abroad. Notify your new address to important contacts, like your bank, credit card company, and insurers, and also your children’s school, doctor or other health service providers, if you’re staying in the same general area. Online contacts, like

PayPal, Amazon or the car tax notification can be changed as the charges come around. But keep an eye on the letterbox for a couple of months before moving and notify any important contacts still sending snail mail.     DECLUTTER Moving home is often the crunch time when people really do have to get on top of their excess of ‘stuff’! Moving is stressful and emotional, anyway, so starting the decluttering process as early as possible will make things easier and less overwhelming. Get all the family involved; do a room at a time, making four piles - the things to keep, the items you can sell, items for donating, gifting or recycling, and, finally, things to dump! Check the attic too for stored items you’d forgotten about. DUMP, DONATE OR RECYCLE Charities like Age Action and NCBI collect furniture and household items in good condition for resale.

Honestly assess what will fit in your new home and what will suit the new space, passing on anything you can live without. Selling online or offering items to friends is also a good idea, but get them to collect the items well ahead of moving day. Posting unwanted things on websites like FreetradeIreland and Jumbletown, to take away free, can help find a new home for them. STORAGE SOLUTIONS If there isn’t the time or the inclination to declutter ahead of a move, look at local storage solutions. Dublin-based Buska Boxes, www.buska.ie, has storage options, by the box or item, from €25 a month. DOCUMENTS Pack your most important documents in a safe, accessible place.  This includes passports, driving licenses, birth certificates, social welfare or other ID cards, insurance papers and financial statements or account books.

EMPTY THE FRIDGE Disconnect your fridge and defrost the freezer at least a day before moving, draining liquid. Use up store cupboard food. Food shopping should be on a daily basis in the week ahead of a move; a fridge full of groceries is not going to survive transit! MINDERS For same-area moves, or even long haul, get a minder for the children and pets; overnight ideally. No matter how well behaved they are normally, they will get in the way. The last thing you need is to lose track of the kids or dog on what can be a tiring and stressful day. Just remember to come back for them! PICTURE PERFECT If renting, photograph your cleaned-out old home and your new home before moving in, just in case a question around the condition of the property pops up at a later stage. It can help to secure a

deposit back, and avoid headaches with difficult landlords. INFORMATION PACK If there’s time, make up an information pack for the new owners – include instructions

for appliances, contact information for utility companies, where to find the water, immersion and heating controls, the bin collection schedule, and any management company or residents’

association contact detail. Whether it’s student digs, a first home, a family upgrade or empty nest downsizing, having a plan is a move in the right direction; best of luck with it!
