Mixed response to ‘radical’ plans unveiled by Dublin Bus other than the centre of town. The new plan will see the amount of lines cut overall and will require some people to change buses to get to the city centre. The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross, said: “The proposals that NTA is publishing today are radical but I believe that they have the potential to make Dublin’s public transport system in general, and its bus system in particular, work much better for the people who use it.

with the public that takes on their views. Senator Humphreys said the consultation should run until at least the end of September to ensure that all those impacted have a chance to make their input after the summer holidays end, and that the proposed changes should also be advertised on existing routes so those using them can be aware of what is planned. Senator Humphreys said: "It is only a few years ago that Dublin Bus undertook a broad review and restructuring of the bus network, but the growing congestion on main arteries into the city shows the need for a fuller overhaul, as I have been calling for. "All of the proposed changes are contingent on the Bus Connects model being delivered, and it is a radical plan that will require years of implementation.”

adult or guardian. A total of 321 students crossed at a school crossing on a bicycle. The council report found that the number of students crossing alone at school warden crossings is relatively high and those who are crossing with an adult is even higher again which they say is good, because the higher the number of students and adults walking to school means the number of people driving to school is reduced. The report also shows that weather condition can dictate whether people walk or drive to school. During wet conditions, the numbers of students walking to school dropped while the number of vehicles on the ‘schoolrun’ increased, which can have a negative effect for local traffic and a knockon effect on ancillary routes.



Dublin volunteers transform autism unit THE autism unit at Greenhills College in Walkinstown has been extensively renovated thanks to the selfless dedication of the employees of a Dublin firm. AbbVie, a global biopharmaceutical

company with offices in Citywest and Santry, marked the fifth anniversary of its Week of Possibilities volunteering programme with a facelift project at the Southside school. For the fifth consecutive year, AbbVie employees

have joined forces with non-profit partners to enhance education through volunteerism and improvement projects. Employees completed the extensive refurbishment during a week-long initiative. A significant number of

the students enrolled at the boys-only secondary school have autism needs and attend Greenhills College to avail of the school’s autism resource unit. Volunteers worked alongside staff to upgrade the unit’s sensory room, library and kitchen.

The weather can bring out our best and worst TONY McCULLAGH Editor Dublin People Group

WHAT we initially suspected was just typical Leaving and Junior Cert weather, cruelly timed to heap further pressure on the nation’s students, has certainly gone the distance. As I write this, the temperature is hovering somewhere in the midtwenties. That said, by the time we go to press and you get to read this article, the country could be in the grip of another Siberian big freeze. Let’s hope not.

Extreme weather conditions, as we see them, have a tendency to bring out the best and worst in us. Just a few months ago we were being praised by the Government for heeding the red alert that had to be issued when the country was faced with a national bread shortage due to the snow. With the schools closed and families forced to talk to each other, we bravely weathered the storm and prayed that the wi-fi wouldn’t be affected. While the blizzard-like conditions were certainly dramatic by Irish standards, our foreign cousins and friends in places like Canada and the USA scoffed at our overreaction. “You call that snow, huh?” For the most part, the current dry spell has been enjoyable, allowing us

Life’s a beach... Dubliners have been flocking to the shores to cool off. PHOTO POSED/BIGSTOCK to dine al fresco and embrace the great outdoors without having to prepare for all weather eventualities. We’ve even been able to swim at Dublin’s beaches, except, of course, the ones that are polluted. Apart from the few whingers banging about the unbearable heat, most of us seem happier when the

sun is shining. Sure isn’t Ireland the best little country in the world when we have the weather? But even the sun can bring out the dark side in some people: the idiots who discard their litter in parks and on beaches; the brain-dead morons who endanger their dogs by leaving them locked in hot cars; the

sunburnt, topless, drunken thugs who flock to Dublin’s scenic spots and cause havoc. These types of people, thankfully, seem to be in the minority. Let’s hope that we get just enough rain to replenish our water stocks. After that, bring on the good weather for the rest of July and August!

House in Killarney where they were taken on a tour of the house and surrounding gardens. Later that day the minister hosted a garden party for the royals in the beautiful grounds of Killarney House, a place visited by Queen Victoria in the 1860’s. “I was very pleased to welcome Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall to Killarney House and Muckross House in Killarney National Park last month,” Minster Madigan said. “Charles and Camilla took a great interest in the area and I was happy to assure them both that they and indeed their wider family will always be welcome here in Ireland and indeed we look forward to welcoming them and others back very soon.” Minister Madigan said that over 150 years ago Queen Victoria, her husband Prince Albert and her children arrived in Killarney by train. On her first night, she stayed in Kenmare House, which once stood on

the grounds of Killarney house. The Queen and her family would then go on to stay in Muckross House. Minister Madigan added: “I am delighted that Their Royal Highnesses followed in Queen Victoria’s footsteps. Killarney is truly one of the most beautiful places in the world and, as Minister with responsibility for this National Park, I was especially proud to open the ‘Golden Gates’ to our masterpiece of nature for such illustrious visitors.” During their high-profile visit, Prince Charles and Camilla included a visit to Cork as part of their tour. The couple started out by following in the footsteps of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II and travelling to the city’s famous English Market. It followed a two-day visit to Northern Ireland, ending in Omagh, where they paid their respects at the scene of one of the biggest mass killings of the Troubles. Meanwhile, this week’s visit to Ireland will be Harry and Meghan’s first

foreign trip as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. Their first royal trip abroad together has an itinerary filled with events and culture. According to a statement issued by Kensington Palace, Meghan and Harry will “visit organisations central to Irish life”. That will include a Gaelic sports festival at the home of the Gaelic Athletic Association in Croke Park. The Royals have been invited to a summer garden party at the headquarters of the British Ambassador, where they will meet people from Ireland’s arts, military, sports, and social enterprise departments. Kensington Palace has said this visit will see Their Royal Highnesses learning “about Ireland’s culture”. The Royal couple had a prior engagement before flying to Ireland, with Prince Louis’ christening the day before they flew out. Prince Louis’ christening was taking place at the Chapel Royal at St James’s Palace.

Tennis players attempt to smash Guinness record IT’S GAME on for four leading Irish tennis players who are aiming to get in the record books by playing for 60 hours nonstop. The Guinness Book of Records attempt will take place in Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club with the first ball served at 8am on Friday, July 13 and, all being well, continuing until the rackets are put down at 8pm on Sunday, July 15. And it’s all in a good cause with funds raised going to the Enjoy Tennis programme which has todate enabled almost 1,000 players with a disability to learn and play the game in 70 clubs around Ireland. It is hoped that the attempt will raise at least €20,000. The current World Record is held by four Dutch players who played nonstop for 58 hours in 2013. David Mullins and James Cluskey, former Davis Cup players and Daniel

O’Neill and Luke McGuire, both members of Trinity Tennis Club, will be taking on the challenge. “Other than Luke, we have not attempted anything like this on a tennis court in the past,” explained David Mullins. “We have trained ourselves over many years to play the sport at a fast tempo and with a great deal of variety. “For this challenge we will have to play the match at a slow pace, with little or no variety of shots and over a long period of time to conserve energy. Dealing with the monotony of this slowpaced game will be one of the biggest challenges.” David said they had been in training for the arduous attempt for several months and included a dry run on Friday, June 22 when the four played overnight from 9pm to 6am on Saturday morning to “acclimatise” to things like sleep deprivation and

exhaustion. During the record attempt – when they hope to break the existing record by at least two hours – the players will take a 40-minute break after being on court for eight straight hours (they are entitled to a five-

minute break every hour) during which they can rest eat and use the bathroom. Two independent witnesses will be present at all times to ensure that the strict rules set down by the Guinness Book of World Records are adhered to.

David Mullins, James Cluskey, Daniel O’Neill and Luke McGuire will be making the record attempt.



A tribute to ‘Mr Holyhead’ Breasal Ó Caollaí “MR HOLYHEAD who developed links with Ireland” is how John Cave was described at his recent funeral in Wales. While John knew Irish ports quite well from his young days working on ships, it was not until later years that he got to really know the Irish through joint community involvements. His activities promoting his native Holyhead brought him regularly

to Ireland and especially Dún Laoghaire, Greenore, and Greystones, where he helped develop links with Ireland's National Maritime Museum, Gaelscoilanna, and the business community. John Cave was no ordinary Welshman. He was the founder of the Holyhead Maritime Museum which is now a major tourism attraction in North Wales and was later awarded an MBE for his efforts. Among the recommendations

made for him to receive the award were glowing submissions from community leaders in Dún Laoghaire including some local Irish Republicans. At the time only some Republicans -the “officials”- believed in building links with all other communities living on these islands. More recently, in the years leading up to the 1916 centenary year, John was instrumental in making the arrangements,

‘Mr Holyhead’, John Cave.

along with his close friend, the late Major Stephen Hunt, Royal Welsh Fusiliers (Rtd) in organising a major trip from the Dún Laoghaire community to Frongoch, North Wales, to mark the centenary of the internment there of the Irish Volunteers following the Rising. Neither of them saw any conflict between their own personal backgrounds and assisting groups from Ireland paying homage to their revolutionary ancestors. John Cave's ability to connect with young people was demonstrated when in the early days of the Holyhead Maritime Museum some of its windows were broken, apparently by local children. His reaction was to visit local schools and explain to the pupils that the museum was theirs, their history and their heritage. It worked. The museum was never vandalised again. In addition to his hands

across the Irish Sea maritime involvements, he was also involved in a legion of other bodies. He was the Holyhead agent for the Seamen’s Benevolent Fund, and was involved in remembrance for the Mail Boat Leinster, the Tara, the Anglia, the Scotia, the Connemara and the H15 submarine. He was a founder member of the Holyhead Dún Laoghaire Link Association, Governor of the Park School (which lost staff and pupils aboard the Mail Boat Leinster in 1918), and Governor of the Kingsland School also in Holyhead. He was also a onetime crew member of the Holyhead Life Boat. By the time of his death he had been made Life President of the Holyhead Maritime Museum. His funeral in late June proved to be one of the biggest in Holyhead in living memory with the eulogy read by his friend and former ship mate, Albert Owen MP. RIP John Cave.

Glasthule and Sandycove are going green A GROUP of small businesses in one of Ireland’s best-loved seaside towns have announced details of a new initiative called ‘Glasthule and Sandycove Going Green’. The initiative focuses primarily on reducing plastic use with ambitions to also cut waste and energy and water consumption. As a first step, the initiative has set a target for local businesses to substitute three of their single-use, noncompostable plastics with biodegradable alternatives by the end of the year. Announcing details, Mark Caviston of Caviston’s Food Emporium and seafood restaurant said: “Living in such a beautiful seaside area, we are particularly conscious of the need to protect our ocean. “The issue of plastic

pollution is something that needs to be addressed and it’s exciting to be part of a group of businesses taking real, meaningful action on this issue. “We have already switched to biodegradable containers and wooden cutlery, and are encouraging customers to bring their own containers to our fish counter and switching away from non-recyclable coffee cups. Many other businesses are making similar changes.” Businesses have produced their own list of actions and these will be displayed in each shop with special signage and suggestions on how consumers can support the initiative. Businesses are also encouraging customers to buy more sustainable products. For example, Roco-co clothing store is selling bamboo-based clothing.

Princess Anne attends RDS horse congress HRH The Princess Royal meets with John Green, Chairperson Board of Directors Festina Lente Enterprises, Jill Carey, the CEO of Festina Lente, and Mary Brophy of the Board of Directors, Festina Lente.

HER Royal Highness, Princess Anne, was guest of honour at the Horses in Education and Therapy International Congress 2018 (HETI) in the RDS last week. With just under 400 delegates from 44 countries in attendance, this was the event’s Irish debut. It was hosted by the Co Wicklow-based charity, Festina Lente Enterprises, to present international research papers examining the benefits of Equine Assisted Interventions.

These range from Hippotherapy, Therapeutic Riding, Equine Assisted Learning and Equine Assisted Psychotherapy. A key focus this year was on the need to ensure best practice for the ethical welfare and management of equines involved in this field. Earlier this week, Minister of State, Jim Daly, acknowledged the valuable role of horses for children with disabilities in the context of therapeutic riding.

Say prayer for 3 days promise publication never known to fail. SOR

Following an address to delegates, Her Royal Highness, who is the Royal Patron of HETI, heard presentations from 9-yearold Rachel Doak and 12-year-old Adam Farrelly who have been benefitting from Therapeutic Riding and Equine Assisted Interventions at Festina Lente from a very young age. This was directly followed by presentations by a number of speakers on the various therapeutic activities associated with horses. The Princess Royal later met with representatives from Canada, Australia and New Zealand and the upcoming hosts of the 2021 Congress, Korea. The week-long programme of events for attending delegates included workshops in Equine Assisted Learning (EAL), psycho-educational vaulting and managing welfare considerations for

equines involved in EAL. An official opening ceremony showcased indigenous equines including Connemara ponies, Kerry Bog ponies, Irish Cobs, Irish draught horses and donkeys along with rescued and rehabilitated horses now working within the area of Equine Assisted Intervention. A strong social programme also accompanies core Congress objectives to provide an opportunity for like-minded people to meet, network and share ideas from across the globe. And in a showcasing of both Irish hospitality and entertainment, Festina Lente added an entertaining Irish ceili and a unique production of Snow White to the proceedings – the latter featuring a predominantly equine and canine cast.

Ross welcomes funding award for Imaginosity IMAGINOSITY Children’s Museum in Sandyford has been awarded €8,000 of funding through Science Foundation Ireland. The funding has been awarded through SFI by the Department of Business, Enterprise and Innovation to support local groups in running events as part of Science Week 2018. The Sandyford museum is one of 15 events receiving a total of €114,000 funding. Science Week will take place between November 11 and 18 this year. Imaginosity successfully applied for funding to support its ‘Dr Osity Body Science Show’. The show will run throughout Science Week 2018 as part of an outreach project aimed at under 12s attending DEIS schools. It will reach an estimated 1,680 people. The Minister for

Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross, welcomed the funding allocation. “I strongly welcome the news that Imaginosity, Dublin’s Children’s Museum, has been awarded €8,000 of funding to support its outreach work,” said Minister Ross. “Imaginosity is very popular in the local community and has consistently excited and educated children since its opening 11 years ago. “Moreover, the announcement is hugely positive for local DEIS schools, whose students will experience the best of Imaginosity’s creative work. Our young people should become interested and literate in science at as early an age as possible. This can only be achieved by making science education fun. and accessible in the community.”

The Wedding Present celebrate 30 years of ‘Tommy’

The Wedding Present are back for the 30th anniversary of ‘Tommy’.

THE Wedding Present are touring to commemorate the 30th anniversary of the release of their first singles collection, ‘Tommy’. Fans can expect to hear tracks from the compilation, as well as favourites from across the band’s career. Emerging in the wake of the Smiths' demise as the UK’s most successful indie pop band during the late '80s, the Wedding Present were founded in Leeds in 1985. Formed from the ashes of the short-lived Lost Pandas, the Weddoes (as they were affectionately dubbed by fans) were essentially the vehicle of singer/songwriter David Gedge, the only constant member throughout the group's tumultuous history. Initially rounded out by guitarist Peter Solowka, bassist Keith Gregory, and drummer Shaun Charman, the fledgling band quickly won a loyal following among

university students, as well as the patronage of influential DJ John Peel, for whom they cut their first radio session in February 1986. Named in honour of the popular soccer star George Best, the Wedding Present's remarkable debut LP appeared on their own Reception label in 1987. The band’s music evolved from fast-paced indie rock in the vein of their most obvious influences The Fall, Buzzcocks and Gang of Four. The group became the darlings of the British press overnight, winning acclaim for their distinct guitar pop frenzy as well as Gedge's idiosyncratic vocal style and wittily lovelorn, conversational lyrics. ‘Tommy’ - a compilation of early singles, covers, and radio broadcasts followed in 1988. The Wedding Present are Live at Whelan’s on Friday, July 27.

The year of the Leinster PREPARATIONS are well underway for a series of centenary events marking the 100-year anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Leinster. The official launch took place in Dun Laoghaire recently where details of the planned centenary events, which are set to take place throughout September and October across Dún Laoghaire and Dublin City, were unveiled Hundreds of those directly affected by the sinking of the Mail Boat Leinster gathered to mark the occasion in the seaside town. Just before 9am on the morning of Thursday, October 10, 1918, the Royal Mail Steamer (RMS) Leinster began its final voyage from Carlisle Pier in Dún Laoghaire (then Kingstown) to Holyhead in Wales.

The ship was owned and operated by the City of Dublin Steam Packet Company. An estimated 771 passengers and crew were on board, comprising postal sorters, civilian passengers, military and medical personnel and the ship’s crew. Between 9.30am and 9.40am, the RMS Leinster passed the Kish Light. Shortly afterwards, it was sunk by three torpedoes fired by German submarine, UB-123. What unfolded was the worst maritime disaster in the Irish Sea. Over 500 people perished, including members of the ship's crew, postal sorters, civilian passengers and military, medical and support personnel involved in the war effort. Families and communities on both sides of the Irish

Sea and as far afield as America, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, were devastated by this tragedy. The 35 members of the crew of UB-123 were themselves killed one week later. An immense humanitarian response was mobilised following the tragedy and this year’s events will acknowledge the care and kindness shown by the rescue services, and nursing and medical personnel. Highlights of the centenary events will include a significant display by An Post in Dún Laoghaire Post Office and the issuing of a special edition stamp to mark the centenary in October. A ‘100 Boats for 100 Years’ event on September 22 and 23 will feature a maritime tribute continued on page 14

Council approves major funding in Grants Scheme DUN Laoghaire Rathdown County Council has agreed to provide €154,000 in grant funding to 121 projects across community, business attraction, arts, sports and winter events. The purpose of the dlr Grant Scheme is to provide financial support to individuals, groups and organisations engaged in projects, events or developments at local or county level within the county. These projects are designed to enhance the quality of life and wellbeing of communities and people living in the county and also to provide opportunities for economic growth and jobs that is at the heart of the council’s Corporate Plan. Since 2014, the county council has awarded over €3m in grants. These grants empower

communities, businesses and organisations to deliver on projects that will enhance community wellbeing that is so important for a thriving county. Cathaoirleach Cllr Ossian Smyth said: “I am delighted that the grants have been awarded across a number of categories and across the entire county from Dun Laoghaire, Dundrum, Glencullen-Sandyford, Stillorgan, Blackrock and Killiney-Shankill. “The grants play a key role in shaping a better future for our county and all of its communities.” Successful applicants are required to recognise the council’s support in their publicity promoting the projects. Ten public information meetings were held across the county in March and April to provide advice in relation to the grant

process and to promote those opportunities. Details were published in various local newspapers, on the dlr website, through the dlr social media platforms and through the Public Participation Network. Cllr Lettie McCarthy (Lab) said local groups and organisations will be thrilled to receive a grant. “With years of experience under my belt serving on Tidy Towns and residents’ associations, I know the benefits of receiving Pictured at the launch of the book ‘You would be filled with wonder - The Story of Dún Laoghaire Harbour’ are these grants,” she said. Rose Redmond and Veronica Heywood from Dún Laoghaire. “It’s not just the financial support but also the acknowledgement of a group’s work which in itself offers encouragement. “We are so lucky to have so many wonderfully civic minded volunteers in our county and we must never take them or the services they provide for granted.”

New children’s book celebrates the Bicentenary of Dún Laoghaire Harbour DUN Laoghaire Harbour has caught the imagination of writers, playwrights and poets for two centuries. Countless books have been written recalling the stories of shipwrecks, storms and forgotten heroes to everyone except children. But now, The Blackrock Education Centre, supported by Dun Laoghaire Harbour Company, has created a children’s book as a legacy to the future custodians, sailors and visitors to the harbour. Dun Laoghaire Harbour celebrated its bicentenary in 2017 and to celebrate the enormous impact it has had on the local area the first children’s book about the harbour is now in bookshops entitled: ‘You’d would be filled with wonder - The Story of Dun Laoghaire Harbour’. This unique book was written by local historian Dr Seamus Cannon with support from Grainne O Malley and Colin Scuds. It was designed by

Pictured at the launch of The Story of Dun Laoghaire Harbour are Colin Scudds, historian, Gráinne O’Malley, historian, Mary Mitchell O’Connor, Minister of State for Higher Education, Seamus Cannon, author and Eliane Pearce, designer. Elaine Pearce as a series of 15 bite-sized stories highlighting key events in the harbour’s history. Tales of heroism, genius, celebration, tragedy and how the harbour began with a tragic double shipwreck are told alongside an account of how the harbour became

the largest construction project of its time in Ireland. Dún Laoghaire harbour was witness to some of the greatest historical events of the past two centuries and these moments are captured in vivid colour with remarkable illustrations.

The book will ignite the imagination of school children along with curious adults and tourists alike. It is available now priced just €9 in local bookstores and can be purchased online by going to the website www.

As we mark the centenary of this tragedy, we have developed an appreciation of the complex narratives around Ireland's involvement in World War I and a mature understanding of the context of that time. “In particular, I wish to acknowledge the efforts of the late owner of the RMS Leinster, Des Brannigan, who was committed to protecting the ship and was one of the founders of the National Maritime Museum in Dún Laoghaire. “I would also like to sincerely thank Dún Laoghaire Rathdown County Council, the family members of those affected by this tragedy, and the many other stakeholders who are working with my department as we develop an inclusive, respectful and fitting ceremony in remembrance of all of those who died.”

Food can endanger your dog Some human foods, besides being fattening to our dogs, are actually toxic to them too. Sometimes, especially if we have recently adopted a larger dog or are minding a friend’s dog, we might not be aware of their reach so items that are usually safely out of the way may no longer be. Chocolate contains theobromine with can be lethal to dogs and the darker the chocolate, the higher the amounts of theobromine. Toxic doses vary according to the size of your dog and, of course, the cocoa content of the chocolate. Symptoms of toxicity include vomiting, excitability, hyper salivation (drooling), excessive thirst, slow heart rate, a sore abdomen, convulsions and in some cases no obvious symptoms are present. Raisins and grapes can also be lethally

Always check with your vet if you are concerned that your dog has eaten something dangerous. PHOTO: BIGSTOCK toxic, although the exact reason why is still unknown. Onions can cause anaemia and gastrointestinal irritation so should be avoided. Macadamia nuts can cause vomiting, weakness, hyperthermia, depression and muscle trembling. Xylitol, commonly found in sugar-free foods such as chewing gum,

toothpaste, sweets and baked goods, has been found to cause insulin release which can lead to liver failure in dogs. Yeast dough can rise in your dog’s digestive system and cause gas to accumulate. Apart from being very painful, it can lead to bloating and potentially cause the stomach to twist which is lifethreatening to your dog.

Small bones from chicken and turkey should also be avoided. They are not toxic but there is a risk of them becoming lodged in the dog’s throat or splintering (especially if cooked) and potentially perforating the intestinal tract. As a general rule, you should avoid giving your dog any medication that has not been prescribed

by a veterinary practitioner. Paracetamol is particularly dangerous as it can lead to death or permanent liver and kidney damage which may require lifelong veterinary treatment. Even if you have a substance at home that your dog has been previously prescribed, it is not safe to use as the dose is likely to be very different for your dog – always, always ask your vet. If you suspect that your dog has consumed something he shouldn’t have, please contact your veterinary practice immediately. Most practices have an emergency out of hours number so it might be a good idea to have this saved in your phone.

Extreme Heat and Your Pet The roads are melting, Ice Cream has suddenly become a rare commodity, and Dublin City has no water... Is it the end of the world? Of course not, our summer has just been condensed into two weeks, that’s all! It seems that the long awaited Leaving Cert weather was delayed till now and, holy-smokes, it is glorious! However, while we’re all enjoying the weather and sunning ourselves every chance we get, our pets probably have no idea why it’s gotten so warm or how to tell us that they’re overheating. With this in mind, we have been busy consulting with our Pet Experts to come up with a simple guide on how you can keep your pet cool, what warning signs to watch for and which Fleetwood Mac album is best for your pets to listen to in order to chill out (Figuratively)! Without further ado, let’s jump in... And cool off!

must be highly vigilant of hunting or working dogs too as they won’t stop should they become too warm. However, an overheated dog can be easily cooled using the Ancol Cooling Coat or the Dogit Water Fountain! One or both of these products is more than ideal for this warm spell for all pets, not just dogs. The Coat can be dipped in cool water and put on your dog for maximum effectiveness, while the fountain provides a fun and cooling drinking experience! If you feel that your dog’s hair is too long you can also book an appointment with our Expert Groomers! Alternatively, playing Rumours from start to finish will also help your dog to cool off (It won’t actually cool him down... but what an album!).

recommend getting the Furminator for cats to strip out their coat, for the time being at least. There’s also the Catit Fountain which is similar to the Dogit one, yet smaller for cats to reach up to. Finally, while dogs prefer the vocals on Rumours; cats are much fonder of Tango in the Night (Don’t ask me why...).

Horses: Horses naturally breathe rapidly after exercising but should it continue 5 or 10 minutes afterwards, that is how you know your horse is too hot. A quick hose-down can often solve this problem. Horses should always have access to clean drinking water but they should also be using an electrolyte supplement to replace fluids lost during sweating. Dogs: Alternatively, you can use a cooler jersey to help Dog’s are probably your horse wick away sweat and to aerate their Cats: the easiest body during exercise. It can also help to keep the Cats are a special animals on sun off of their skin and prevent damage! Always be case.

You could also place a chilled litre bottle of water in their enclosure that they could cuddle up to and cool off from. Larger small animals such as rabbits or guinea pigs that have access to a garden should be monitored for signs of overheating such as panting, lethargy and being warm to the touch. The Catit fountain springs to mind again as it is more than suitable for small animals too! Small animals also tend to favour Lindsey Buckingham’s solo stuff rather than Fleetwood Mac as a whole band. Birds and Avians: Unlike all the other animals on this list, birds are the only ones without sweat glands and thus have no way of disposing of excess heat. Birds who are overheating will display characteristics outside of their normal personality. Aggressiveness or excessive passivity can be a dead giveaway that your pet is uncomfortable due to the heat. Provide cool and fresh drinking water and move their cage out of direct sunlight in order to cool down or avoid overheating in your pet birds. Better still, move the cage to a well ventilated room and allow

time for your birds to acclimatise to the cooler breeze flowing through. For their listening pleasure, birds tend to gravitate towards Mr Cash’s Baritone voice to keep them chilled on a warm summer’s day. 5 Top Tips for Pet Care during Extreme Heat: • Always, always, always provide fresh drinking water, always. Like seriously, always. • The ground is going to be super hot, as is the sand at the beach! Be aware of this when walking your dog. • Don’t strain your pets in extreme heat, let them be lazy! • Imagine if the sun was shining through a big glass pane in the sky. The temperature would double... Think of your small animals in their plastic cages. • Some bands can only be played loud to be truly appreciated (Metallica, I’m looking at you...), but do think of your animals’ hearing during garden parties and the like. Hopefully you’ll now be well equipped to monitor and supervise your pets in the wonderful heat we’ve been having! Always be on the lookout for overheating in your pets and if you’re ever in doubt; phone your vet or your local Equipet store for help and advice. Be safe in the sun everyone and don’t forget to cream the tops of your ears (And your dogs ears, too)!

Health Calls for the Government to invest in dementia supports 16


A FORMER Minister for Justice is backing calls for the Government to invest €12 million towards community supports for people with dementia. The Alzheimer Society of Ireland (ASI) made the call in its Pre-Budget Submission ‘Dementia Support Across Ireland – Building Communities of Care’. Nora Owen, who was a Fine Gael TD for the old Dublin North constituency, is a carer for her husband, Brian, who has dementia. “In Ireland today, people with dementia, their carers and families are still dealing with inadequate supports,” said Ms Owen. “New mapping of dementia-specific services shows people living in Ireland do not have equal access to a basic minimum standard of community services. Budget 2019

could change this. “In Dublin, we still need more vital supports – but it’s not just in my county, it is right across the country. Let’s make access dementia support across Ireland more equal. “Let’s build communities of care for people with dementia in Ireland in Budget 2019.” Ms Owen added: “Please get involved – contact your local TD and please show your support to the 55,000 people living with dementia in Ireland.” The ASI is calling on the Government to invest €7.415 million for a minimum standard of community services in each county; €2.31 million to roll out a Dementia Adviser service across Ireland; €2.24 million to provide Key Workers in every HSE Local Health Office for the coordinated

care of each person with dementia; and €852,000 for Dementia Inclusive Community Coordinators across Ireland. Alzheimer Society of Ireland chief executive Pat McLoughlin said: “The mid-term review of the implementation of the National Dementia Strategy, which was released in May, identifies emerging gaps in the supports and services for people with dementia and their families across Ireland. “The mid-term report concluded that additional funding is required to establish new dementia services and structures right across the country and, at the launch of our Pre-Budget Submission 2019, we are simply calling on the Government to implement their own recommendations.”

Pictured at the launch of the Pre-Budget Submission 2019 were (from l-r): Michael Rowsome, member of Dementia Carers’ Campaign Network, Jacinta Dixon, member of Irish Dementia Working Group, John Clifford, chairperson of the board of directors, The Alzheimer Society of Ireland, and Alzheimer Society of Ireland chief executive Pat McLoughlin.

Fibromyalgia and Approval of €14 million OsteOpathy

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

This allows people to remain in private housing while their housing need is met without increasing the strain on current social housing stock and also reduces the numbers of persons who might otherwise find themselves homeless. Speaking following the announcement, Minister for Disabilities Finian McGrath said: “I want to welcome the efforts being made by all local

authorities to improve the quality of life for those with disabilities and those affected by overcrowding, and say that this will greatly improve the housing conditions for our older tenants and those living with disabilities and addresses issues of overcrowding in existing social housing stock. “Improvement works on private homes in lieu of social housing will also provide an alternative for those currently experiencing overcrowding in private accommodation. “It is our intention to liaise with local authorities to maximise the uptake of this important scheme.”

Businesses join forces to demand better cycling infrastructure DUBLIN businesses are coming together to demand safer cycling infrastructure in the city for their staff. More than 40 of Dublin Chamber's member companies have teamed up so far to call for increased Government spending on segregated cycle lanes and better bike facilities in the capital. The move is part of a new partnership between the Chamber and the CyclingWorks Dublin campaign, which aims to encourage the business community to put pressure on the Government to significantly increase the amount of money it is spending on safe cycling infrastructure in Dublin. A key goal of the campaign is for the Government to provide the National Transport Authority with the funding required to implement the Greater Dublin Area (GDA) Cycle Network Plan, which was launched in 2013. Dublin Chamber said progress on the implementation of this plan has been far too slow over the past five years. "Companies are seeing a sharp increase in the amount of staff commuting to work by bike,” said Dublin Chamber’s Head of Public Affairs Graeme McQueen.   “They are becoming increasingly aware of the need for better, safer cycling facilities in the city. Improved cycling infrastructure is key to growing cyclist numbers in Dublin. It’s hugely encouraging to see a sharp rise in the number of people cycling in Dublin over

recent years. “Since 2008, the number of people commuting into the city has doubled to more than 12,000 every day. “However, for the most part, this progress does not come as a result of good cycling infrastructure, but rather in spite of it. This needs to change.”   Mr McQueen said workers in Dublin are increasingly

looking at cycling as a way of getting around the city. “Feedback tells us that thousands more would like to cycle, but are too afraid to get on their bikes,” he added. The Chamber said its vision is for much safer segregated cycle lanes throughout Dublin, meaning cyclists no longer need to share space with buses and private vehicles.

OK, so you’ve got the hard work done. The walls are painted, the floors are laid and the furniture is in place. It’s nice, but how co me the room still doesn’t feel like the finished article? The secret to transforming a room from ‘nice’ to ‘stylish’ is using the right home décor accessories. It’s just as important as getting the decorating done properly. Accessories ranging from flowers in a contemporary vase to art pictures hanging on your walls all add the finishing touches to any room. Above all, accessories add personality to a room; they inject your own personal touch, making your home unique to your family and comfortable and inviting for guests. One trick is to make

sure your art is in the right place. Not only do art pictures add your own personality to a room, they absorb noise and can actually create the illusion of different shapes if hung in the right places.

For example, horizontal landscape pictures help widen a room while portrait floral pictures help give the illusion of height. One large picture reflected through a mirror gives the sensation of additional broader

space. For a maximum effect and to make interesting wall arrangements that can become a dynamic focal point of the room, try to hang smaller pictures in a cluster. If you hang an even
