Please call 1800 226 771, visit fostering.ie or email: tusla.fostering@tusla.ie Fostering information sessions: March 5th at 9.45am and March 12th at 7pm in the Elbow Room, 32 North Brunswick St, Stoneybatter, Dublin

Troubled bus route is secured Áine O’Boyle THE National Bus and Rail Union (NBRU) has agreed to fully reinstate the troubled Number 27 Dublin Bus route which has been subject to ongoing anti-social activities. Services on the cross-city 27, which runs from Clare Hall to Jobstown, have been curtailed on a number of previous

occasions due to a series of incidents. According to NBRU executive, Sean Yeates, drivers on the route regularly face antisocial issues such as being spat at, having bricks thrown at the buses and passengers fighting on board. According to the union, of 48 incidents of anti-social behaviour recorded on their

website, 15 occurred on the 27 bus route alone. Dublin Bus were approached for comment on the matter but did not respond at time of going to press. The NBRU had previously discussed the possibility of withdrawing the service completely out of fear for their drivers’ safety. The issue came to a head

recently when the NBRU planned to curtail the route in Tallaght on Saturday, February 8, as the country went to the polls on General Election Day. In a strongly worded warning, the union said they were once again calling for a dedicated transport police as anti-social behaviour rises. They said buses on route 27 would only operate as far as

the Square Shopping Centre on that Saturday (February 8), adding that they would not rule out a permanent withdrawal from the area “if politicians and community reps don’t pull their weight”. At a meeting of the Tallaght Forum on February 7, representatives from the union, local community, gardai and politicians were invited to

engage with the issue.

General Secretary of the Call Us Any www.staffordfunerals.com NBRU, Dermot O’Leary, said: “While it was disappointing that a large number of local representatives had not been fully engaging with the Forum over recent months, (Fianna Fail deputies) John Lahart and Charlie O’Connor have been to continued on page 2

SOUTHSIDE PEOPLE 19.02.20

General election sees some high-profile names fall on Dublin’s Southside THERE were a number of high-profile losers in this year’s General Election which saw some wellknown names on the Southside take a tumble. Among them was the outgoing Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross who lost his seat in Dublin Rathdown. He was excluded on the fifth count in the constituency after Green Party deputy leader Catherine Martin topped the poll. Speaking on Newstalk, he said it was not a time for regret, but a time to congratulate those who had been successful. "There has obviously been a huge appetite for change,” he said. "I hope [the elected candidates] make a really successful government and bring about the change that is necessary." Running in the Dún Laoghaire constituency,

Winner: Cormac Devlin.

Loser: Shane Ross. another big name that failed to make the grade was Mary Mitchell O’Connor, who finished just under 500 votes behind Fianna Fáil’s

Cormac Devlin. People Before Profit’s Richard Boyd Barrett, Fine Gael’s Jennifer Carroll MacNeill and the Green Party’s Ossian Smyth took

his party colleague, Kate O'Connell, lost hers. The outgoing housing minister joined Sinn Féin's Chris Andrews, Fianna Fáil's Jim O'Callaghan and Green

Party leader Eamon Ryan who was the first to be elected. In Dublin Mid-West Sinn Fein’s Eoin Ó Broin and Mark Ward were both elected alongside Emer Higgins (FG) and Gino Kenny (S-PBP) but at the cost of some other big names, like those of John Curran (FF) and Paul Gogarty (Ind). Other high-profile losses occurred in Dublin SouthWest where Sean Crowe (SF), Paul Murphy (S-PBP), Colm Brophy (FG), Francis Noel Duffy (GP) and John Lahart (FF) were elected while Katherine Zappone (Ind) and Charlie O'Connor (FF) were eliminated. In Dublin South-Central, the long-serving TD, Aengus Ó Snodaigh (SF), was elected alongside Bríd Smith (S-PBP), Patrick Costello (GP) and Joan Collins were elected while Catherine Byrne (FG) and Catherine Ardagh (FF) were also eliminated.

Election 2020 was great reality television TONY McCULLAGH Editor Dublin People Group t.mccullagh@dublinpeople.com

WHATEVER the eventual outcome of this month’s general election results, it must be said that coverage of the campaign represented reality TV at its best. Even people that I wouldn’t have previously regarded as political animals became overnight experts on proportional representation, tallies and transfers. Netflix had to play second fiddle as the nation broke out the popcorn and binge watched the

rolling election coverage on RTÉ and Virgin Media. It was a short but eventful campaign, with more lows than highs. Leo Varadkar looked more comfortable during television debates than he did when mixing with ordinary people out on the campaign trail. He certainly got off to a bad start. When a homeless man sustained serious injuries as his tent was being removed by a mechanical device along the Grand Canal, Varadkar was accused of politicising the horrific incident by asking Dublin’s Lord Mayor – Fianna Fáil candidate Paul McAuliffe – to make a statement on the matter. Leo’s student days also came back to haunt him when a previous admission about smoking cannabis resurfaced during an early television debate.

Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald and Michelle O’Neill, Deputy First Minister of Northern Ireland, meet the media at the election count in the RDS. PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA At times, Fine Gael did a tremendous job of damaging its own campaign, not least when one of its candidates, Catherine Noone, suggested that her party leader was autistic. It was an extraordinary comment that was offensive on so many levels. Under normal circumstances, I suspect that Noone would have been disciplined by the party and possibly deselected as a candidate. However, given that the election was just weeks away, it was probably considered more politically expedient for Leo to accept her apology and take the air out of the

controversy. Fianna Fáil managed to largely steer clear of banana skins during the campaign, although Micheál Martin kind of overdid it on the anti-Sinn Féin sentiment, an approach he may well live to regret. The party’s most entertaining moment came when young gun Jack Chambers clashed with RTÉ’s Claire Byrne as she repeatedly asked him, justifiably, why children’s internet safety had been included in his party’s climate change manifesto. Sinn Féin seemed immune to bad press. The more their past was dragged

up by rival parties and elements of the media, the better they did in the polls. One thing is clear from the result: Irish voters resent being lectured about how they should think and feel. It would be unfortunate for Sinn Féin if its unprecedented electoral success was tarnished by further outbursts of rebel songs or slogans associated with the Troubles. I fully agree that Mary Lou McDonald shouldn't have to be her TDs' mammy, as she put it herself. But she does need to show leadership by not tolerating such behaviour in the future.

Irish charity plants 1.5 million trees in Ethiopia IRISH charity Concern Worldwide has planted over 1.5 million trees in Ethiopia over the past two years to reduce the suffering caused by the effects of climate change. The international aid organisation, which has been in Ethiopia since 1973, planted 1,549,819 trees, or an average of over 2,100 a day, in 2018 and 2019 in areas of the country devastated by droughts, floods and other severe weather events. The project, supported with funding from Irish Aid, is improving soil quality, providing food, jobs and helping to reverse the effects of climate change. Concern staff also took part in a separate one day national drive, led by the Ethiopian government, to plant

millions of saplings in July last year to help tackle the climate crisis. “Trees strengthen soil and this gives people food, jobs and safer places to live, so this is critical, life-saving work,” explained Concern’s Country Director in Ethiopia, Eileen Morrow who is from Dundrum. “They, along with other plants and organisms in our ecosystem, also give us the oxygen we breathe while taking harmful, world-heating carbon dioxide out of our atmosphere – so by planting trees we are providing a lifeline in this worsening climate crisis.” Concern said it has had huge success from tree planting in Ethiopia in recent years with communities The UN Special Envoy for El Nino and Climate Mary Robinson in Ethiopia where she experiencing less flooding and more visited the Irish Aid program.

The club currently has a membership of 20 divers, with room for at least another six to 12 members. Aside from scuba diving, the club also partakes in a number of other activities while in the water, ranging from underwater clean-ups to biodiversity studies. Kerr notes that when the divers enter into the marine environment, they are at one with the aquatic animals there. “While we’re there we now work to clean up anything that’s down there, plastic, rubbish and ever diver has an onus to bring up at least five

The club itself is well-recognised internationally, boasting a membership to the Irish Underwater Council of which is affiliated to the International Underwater Council. “That’s why we have worldwide recognition,” said Kerr. “The standard of training from the bottom to the top in all countries is the same.” With membership to the club comes the opportunity to dive locally, nationally and abroad. “We’re just back from ten dives in Lanzarote, but we dive all over the country, in lakes and quarries and in the sea,” he added.

Kevin Street students to take a trip down the old memory lane TU Dublin is preparing for the arrival of 10,000 students to its new flagship campus in Grangegorman. Many of these students will leave Kevin Street, where TU Dublin has been a part of the local community for over 130 years. To pay tribute to Kevin Street, the university is hosting a special celebration before the beginning of its next chapter later this year in Grangegorman. The event, organised by Kevin Street staff and the TU Dublin Graduate Network, takes place this month, on Saturday, February 29. The celebration is a chance for Kevin Street alumni to revisit their college days and to commemorate the unique history of their alma mater as the home of technological education

in Ireland. TU Dublin is the university where the arts, business, sciences, engineering and technology converge and its 28,500 students and researchers come from all over Ireland and from all parts of the globe. Arnold Felix Graves founded Kevin Street Technical School, with financial support from Dublin Corporation, and 220 students began classes there in October 1887. From the very beginning, Kevin Street offered education and training at the leading edge of technology, a tradition that will continue in its new home in the Central Quad in Grangegorman. Alumni visiting Kevin Street will be able to meet with their former classmates and lecturers, view memorabilia, see their old labs and lecture

rooms, and hear about the university’s exciting new chapter at Grangegorman. Biological and Health Sciences graduates can reminisce about 70 years of Diagnostics, Dietetics and DNA in Kevin Street, while those who studied Mathematical Sciences can see photos of students from yesteryear - and even try their hand at some old exam papers! Computer Science will take former students on a trip down memory lane with an exhibition of old pictures and showcase what they will bring to their new home in Grangegorman. Electrical and Electronic Engineering is hosting a display of photographs, vintage lab equipment and other material from the school’s archive. At the same time, Chemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences staff will meet with

graduates on the third floor and provide tours of their state-of-the-art laboratories and talk about their plans for Grangegorman. Physics and Clinical Measurement alumni will be delighted to hear that the physics labs are still on the first floor and staff are excited to show how these facilities have been modernised over the years. Finally, former National Optometry Centre students can see demonstrations of their Take a trip down memory lane at TU Kevin Street. cutting-edge diagnostic equipment and visit the largely unchanged clinic labs. The Kevin Street celebration takes place between 1-4pm on February 29. The event is free, but places are limited so prospective attendees are advised to register for their place on Eventbrite.

Tasty line-up for Fruit festival FORBIDDEN Fruit, Dublin's first and longestrunning city centre festival - is returning for its 10th anniversary on the incredible grounds of Irish Museum Of Modern Art, Royal Hospital Kilmainham. It all kicks off on Saturday, May 30 with Jorja Smith, Peggy Gou, Loyle Carner and Fatima Yamaha. On Sunday 31, dance masters Underworld headline with Hot Chip, The Murder Capital and The Avalanches all taking to the stage. English R&B singer/ songwriter Jorja Smith’s soulful, jazz-tinged cadence, heartfelt lyrics, and retro sound invoke names like Alunageorge, Nao, Lulu James, and Amy Winehouse. The Brit Award winning artist’s debut record ‘Lost & Found’ was released to critical acclaim - and she has collaborated with the likes of Drake, Burna Boy, AJ Tracey, fellow Fruit artist Loyle Carner and many others. She will be playing her first ever Dublin show at Forbidden Fruit 2020. We also love the awesome Peggy Gou, who played her Irish festival debut at Forbidden Fruit in 2017 to a rapt audience. One of the biggest names in dance music today, the South Korean DJ and producer now returns as one of our 2020

headliners. Loyle Carner first appeared on the scene back in 2014, with his debut EP ‘A Little Late’, which cemented him in the UK's rap scene as one to watch. He followed that up in 2017 with his BRIT (Best Male, Best Newcomer) and Mercury Prize nominated, top 20 debut ‘Yesterday’s Gone’. He then released his highly anticipated sophomore record, ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’ in April of last year. His performance at this year’s All Together Now and his sold out Vicar Street show in October of last year were truly something special. This will be Loyle’s first time to grace the Forbidden Fruit stage in 2020. Returning for his first show since 2018, Fatima Yamaha is one of many aliases used by Dutch producer Bas Bron, under which he releases understated electronic dance tracks that have a retro, synth-led aesthetic. The alias originally emerged in 2004, for the release of an EP, ‘What's a Girl to Do’, on D1 Music. Soon after the EP was released, Bron put aside the Fatima Yamaha moniker to focus on several other pseudonyms, including Bastian, Gifted, and Seymour Bits. As the years rolled by,

the title track continued to circulate, gaining new momentum from various reissues, including a release on Bron's own label, Magnetron Music, and Dekmantel, both in 2015. By then the record had gained an underground following, resulting in the resurrection of Fatima Yamaha for a string of festival appearances and a full-length debut album, ‘Imaginary Lines’. Having had no tour dates throughout 2019, this is Fatima Yamaha’s first show announcement to mark his return in 2020. Underworld, aka Rick Smith and Karl Hyde (pictured right) are at home headlining the world’s biggest festivals and events, playing underground techno clubs and warehouses, sound-tracking theatre productions or taking over art galleries, disused shoe shops, and Japanese department stores. Having cemented their place in the ’90s underground techno scene, the group’s definitive breakthrough came in 1996 when their timeless anthem ‘Born Slippy (Nuxx)’ became the soundtrack of a generation after it was featured in the film Trainspotting. From playing a sold-out Forbidden Fruit in 2016 to then headlining the debut year of All Together

Now in 2018, this marks Underworld’s return to Dublin in 2020 to headline what will be a very special 10th anniversary for the festival. Returning for their first outdoor live Dublin show since 2013 is Hot Chip. This excellent synth pop gang headlined All Together Now in 2019, and now make their Forbidden Fruit debut. Australian mixing maestros The Avalanches

will also be taking to the Forbidden Fruit stage for their debut. Fans had to wait 16 long years for ‘Wildflowers’, the follow up to ‘Since I Left You’. The band took to Instagram to reveal that they are mixing their third studio album, due for release this year. Dublin based five-piece The Murder Capital exploded onto the scene last year with their intense brooding post-punk. Their

debut album 'When I Have Fears' reached Number 2 in the Irish album charts. Currently playing sold-out shows on their European tour, followed by a North America tour, with a sold-out Vicar Street show in February, now is your chance to witness them live. Even more artists will be joining in across the weekend including singer and rapper Biig Piig. Expect silky vocals and

soul-tinged melodies over hip-hop beats from this star.

Joan As Police Woman will be playing ‘Cover Two’ in Dublin WE just can’t get enough of Joan As Police Woman. After her sold out Irish tour last July, it has been announced that Joan will be performing her new album ‘Cover Two’ live in concert with Parker Kindred (drums) and Jacob Silver (bass) for two nights, on Saturday, June 13 and Sunday 14 in the Georgian gem that is Dublin’s Pepper Canister Church. Tickets for Joan As Police Woman Trio are on sale now. Her new album ‘Cover Two’ (Sweet Police/PIAS), will be released in May.

This will be Joan’s second album re-working songs by other artists and again, Joan makes some very interesting and surprising choices. About the new album Joan says: “I began working on new covers ever since the release of the first covers album 11 years ago. “I’ve been performing ‘Kiss’ by Prince and my version of ‘Out of Time’ by Blur throughout last year’s Joanthology Tour and finished the record as soon as I returned home this winter. “Recreating existing

songs is a gratifying creative challenge for me, especially with songs I adore. I start with the question ‘why, exactly, do I love this song?’ “I take those elements and reform them, sometimes removing much of the remaining material to refocus them through new glasses. “I re-harmonise the chords, radically change the feel or shift the hook or the phrasing to rebuild the composition. “For ‘Spread’ by Outkast, I invited my friend and musical genius Meshell Ndegeocello to

recite André’s words and play bass as only she can. “I beat boxed the drums, had Parker play live over the tracks and added the masterful trumpeter Cole Kamen-Green. “Under Control’ by The Strokes is my favorite song of theirs. I always heard it as classic R&B song dressed up as a Strokes song, so I just reframed it the way I heard it naturally and did my best Brian May guitar playing. “Not The Way’ is from Cass McCombs’ first EP. I’d listened to the song for years before I realised what the lyrics were and

then just wanted to create a version of my own. “The verse describes being judgmental and difficult which leads to the blithe chorus ‘That’s not the way to make friends’. “Keep Forgetting’ by Michael McDonald is a song that lyrically tears me up. It felt like it was a terribly sad song dressed up in a slick untouchable suit. I recreated it as the heart-broken ballad inside that suit. “Talk Talk’s ‘Life’s What You Make It’ is a mantra for me. I sang it with the incredible vocalist Justin Hicks.” We just can’t get enough of Joan As Police Woman.

Tallaght man broke a beer bottle over taxi driver's head Brion Hoban A SOUTHSIDE man who broke a beer bottle over the head of a taxi driver has been jailed for nine months. David Murphy (29) of Belfry Green, Tallaght, pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to assault causing harm at Slade Road, Saggart, on March 21, 2015. Judge Pauline Codd sentenced Murphy to three and a half years but suspended the final two years and nine months of the sentence. Garda Andrew Griffin told Derek Cooney BL, prosecuting, that in the early hours of the morning a taxi man picked up Murphy and a woman from a house in Clondalkin. Murphy was carrying a beer can and a bag containing beer bottles.

The taxi driver drove to Slade Road and asked where Murphy wanted to go. Murphy told him to drive up the street, then asked him to turn back around and suddenly pulled the handbrake of the car. Murphy took a beer bottle from the bag at his feet and smashed it over the taxi driver's head. He then picked up the remains of the bottle and told him to get out of the car or he would stab him. The woman and Murphy eventually left the taxi and the driver reported the incident. He did not go to the hospital as he did not want his wife to know about it. Murphy has 41 previous convictions. These include convictions for assault causing harm, assault on a peace officer, violent disorder, violent

behaviour in a Garda station and criminal damage. Sarah-Jane O'Callaghan BL, defending, said her client's family had been homeless for significant portions of his life. However, she said he is now sober, drug free and employed. Judge Codd said she was taking into consideration Murphy's plea of guilty and his personal circumstances. She noted that the attack has left the taxi driver more cautious in his work and he is now afraid to work nights. He lost around â‚Ź800 in earnings because he was out of work for a time after the assault. The court heard that Murphy failed to engage with a victim awareness course and is deemed to be at a medium risk of reoffending.

Mental health charity Aware seeks volunteers A NATIONAL charity supporting people affected by depression, bipolar disorder and mood-related conditions, has launched a volunteer recruitment campaign for its Support Line. The Aware Support Line is a national freephone service which operates from 10am to 10pm 365 days a year. The line provides telephone support to people concerned about issues relating to their own mood or that of a friend or family member. It operates against a backdrop of an estimated more than 450,000 people experiencing depression in Ireland at any one time, while there are approximately 45,000 people diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Depression and bipolar disorder are mental health conditions that affect our

thinking, energy, feelings and behaviour. While they can vary from mild to severe, and impact on our relationships, family and work lives, it is possible to find ways to manage the conditions, and to lead healthy and productive lives. Bríd O’Meara, Aware’s Director of Services, said that by giving back, volunteers gain as much as they give on the Support Line. “Our more than 400 volunteers nationwide are a crucial lifeline for people impacted by depression and bipolar disorder,” said Ms O’Meara. “They play a key part in our work supporting people affected by stress, depression, bipolar disorder and moodrelated conditions, and are passionate about nurturing people’s

positive mental health. “On our Support Line, volunteers listen carefully to callers, their questions, concerns and reasons for calling, so as to best understand and respond. “They are compassionate and nonjudgemental, treating people with dignity and respect, and provide information and signpost people to pathways to recovery such as other services and therapies. “We know from people who have volunteered for the Support Line that it is hugely rewarding for them. “There is a real feelgood factor in giving something back, while also developing their own life skills and talents in the process.” People interested in registering their interest to become an Aware Support Line volunteer

The Care Trust get on the road with the all-new Renault Clio RENAULT Ireland has partnered with Irish charity The Care Trust (TCT) to supply 36 all-new Renault Clios for its series of fundraising lottery draws in 2020. Renault Ireland Brand Ambassador and Today FM Breakfast Show presenter Ian Dempsey was on hand to launch the new partnership recently. The Care Trust is a nonprofit organisation and a registered charity, raising much needed funds for the CRC, Rehab, and the Mater University Hospital since 1974. In 2019, The Care Trust provided €2.15 million to CRC, Rehab and the Mater Hospital from its fundraising efforts. These funds help to ensure that thousands of children and adults with physical, medical or intellectual disabilities, those who are socially disadvantaged and those requiring medical care have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. The Care Trust runs three draws every month, and an all-new Renault Clio must be won in every draw. In the 30 years since

the iconic supermini first went on sale, Clio has become Renault’s bestselling model worldwide, with 15 million Clios finding homes. The fifth generation of Clio arrived with a totally refreshed exterior styling combined with revolutionary interior design, and sets new standards for quality, technology and practicality. It’s also one of the safest cars in its class, as highlighted by its five-star EuroNCAP rating. With its sensual lines, dynamic profile, sculpted sides and a new lighting signature with full LED lighting, the all-new Clio will win you over from the moment you set eyes on it, with its modern and dynamic style, enhanced by its new metallic Valencia Orange tint. With its customisable options, new wheel rims and sporty RS Line version, the iconic small car has a wide range to cater to all tastes. On the inside, every detail counts. The Clio has undergone a revolution and features high-quality materials and finishes. With its new driver-

Conor Dixon, Renault Ireland, said: “We’re delighted to partner with The Care Trust, which does such fantastic work through its beneficiaries at the CRC, Rehab and the Mater Hospital. We wish all 36 lucky winners safe and happy driving in their All-New Renault Clios.” Senan Mullins, Chief Executive, The Care Trust, added: “We are very grateful to Renault Ireland for their tremendous support and goodwill and we are looking forward to a great partnership which will offer our contributors the chance, well 36 chances, this year in fact, to win an all-new Renault Clio, along with cash prizes in every draw. “The Care Trust has been fundraising since 1974, thanks to our generous and loyal contributors, who make a huge difference to the lives of children and adults who depend on the fantastic services provided by CRC, Rehab and the Mater Hospital.” Renault Ambassador and Today FM breakfast presenter Ian Dempsey launches the new partnership.

Škoda makes some predictions for 2020 The total number of new cars sold in 2019 fell by 6.8 per cent to 117,031 units compared to 2018. Škoda Ireland is projecting a slightly more optimistic result in 2020, with 120,000 passenger vehicle sales forecasted. Despite this year’s decline there is still a very healthy appetite for vehicles with 12.9 per cent more used car imports registered in 2019 compared to 2018. The biggest challenge for the industry over the last three years was the staggering 307,900 used imports that indirectly affected the new car market. With the introduction of the new government NOx tax from January 1, used imports will not be as advantageous as was previously.

Take for example: a 2016 Škoda Superb 2.0 TDI 4x4 170bhp. Regardless of purchase price and excluding currency fluctuations this vehicle is subject to a further €2,400 NOx Tax in addition to Vehicle Registration Tax (VRT). This is likely to increase the cost significantly of importing a used vehicle. In the last 12 months the sale of electric vehicles has increased nearly threefold with 3,443 Battery Electric Vehicles (BEVs) delivered in 2019 compared to 1,233 in the same period last year. The demand for BEVs will only increase in line with consumer awareness of climate change and new model introductions from various brands. Diesel powered vehicles accounted for 47 per cent

of all vehicle sales in 2019 with 54,505 customers opting for Diesel in 2019. With electric vehicle technology, especially battery range and

infrastructure still in development, petrol and Diesel vehicles will likely account for 85 per cent of new vehicle sales in 2020. Plug in Hybrid Vehicles

(PHEVs) are seen as a stepping stone to an electric future with the ability to drive on pure electric power in isolation - or in combination.

top but a little higher on the bed. This way both layers can be seen and appreciated. A sheepskin cushion or two, such as Neptune’s soft and curly Tussock

cushions, will add texture and further sumptuousness. A sheepskin rug will make sure toes have something snug to greet them in the morning -

and what could be more cosseting in winter than that? • See www.neptune.com for Irish stockists of the products featured here.

Cushions and rugs provide a simple route to seasonal warmth. Neptune’s Tussock sheepskin rug (from €160), Chloe Denim cushion with eyelash fringing (€135), Tussock cushion in Pearl (€389), and Isabelle cushion Linen Grey (€41).

More candidates are dropping out of the interview process NEW research carried out by e-recruitment platform, IrishJobs.ie, reveals that 90 percent of employers have experienced candidates dropping out of the interview process in the past 12 months. Seven in 10 employers who experienced a drop out said the candidate was offered another job during the process. Interview process length Seventy five percent of employers said their interview processes take one month or less. However, over a quarter of jobseekers say they have experienced a lengthy interview process of between two to five months, with a further 3 percent of interview processes taking more than five months to complete. Common frustrations As Ireland remains at full employment, employers need to dedicate significant time and resourcing to recruit new hires. This should involve an appraisal of current recruitment and interview processes, to avoid losing candidates to competitors. Some of the biggest frustrations felt by jobseekers during the interview process include the non-disclosure of salary data (27 percent,) a lack of communication as to their stage in the process (25 percent) and long application forms (12 percent). Almost half of jobseekers (48 percent) would like to see more face-to-face engagement while a further 64 percent felt as though the process didn’t allow them to adequately demonstrate their skills and expertise. Orla Moran, General Manager of IrishJobs.ie said: “Employers and hiring managers should seize the candidate interview process as an opportunity to demonstrate their organisation’s peoplefocused internal culture and employer brand. “Even unsuccessful candidates can become champions of an organisation if they have a positive experience of the interview process, and leave feeling valued and respected.

dictated by these. “However, by avoiding common errors and frustrations, employers can

optimise their interview process and maximise the return from their recruitment efforts.”

Every company will have different recruitment priorities. “Ensuring that the hiring process avoids some of the most common frustrations for jobseekers, will keep candidates engaged throughout the process. “Process length should be a key consideration during the process.” Ms Moran said there is a fine line between taking enough time to identify the best candidates and taking

too much time to make a decision. “We are now in a jobseekers’ market, and as the results suggest, if a process is too long, employers risk losing candidates to their competitors,” she said. “Every company will have different recruitment priorities and their hiring methods will inevitably be
