Permission sought for Ringsend plant upgrade IRISH Water has submitted a strategic infrastructure development planning application to An Bord Pleanála to upgrade the Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant. Wastewater from Dublin has been treated in Ringsend since 1906. The current facility is the largest wastewater treatment plant in Ireland and was built in 2005 to a

project was assessed and reaffirmed. All elements of the 2012 approval were reviewed and Aerobic Granular Sludge (AGS) technology was identified by Irish Water as ideally suited and subsequently proven for use at the Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant. Using AGS technology allows for a greater amount of wastewater to be treated to a higher standard within the current Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant. This means that the treated wastewater leaving the plant will be of a much higher quality than it would have been based on the original proposal in the 2012 approval. This higher quality treated wastewater will be suitable for discharge at the current outfall location, in compliance with the Urban Wastewater Treatment Directive, negating the need for the 9km outfall tunnel originally included in the 2012 planning approval. Commenting on the new planning application, Jean Hobbs, project manager at Irish Water, said: “This is a priority project for Irish Water and is vital for future social and economic development in Dublin, as well as for public health and for improving the waters and ecology of the Lower Liffey Estuary and Dublin

Bay. “Having identified AGS technology as appropriate for use in the Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant, we began detailed testing and trials in April 2015 at the plant. “These trials proved hugely successful, confirming that wastewater treated by AGS technology can be safely and effectively discharged at the current outfall location while protecting the conservation

The application that we are making today will allow the plant to be upgraded to facilitate this innovative technology while supporting future population growth and ensuring that the plant operates to the highest possible environmental standards into the future.” Ringsend Wastewater Treatment Plant Upgrade Project is one of the most important in a range of major investments, in

both water supply and wastewater, that Irish Water will be rolling out in the region to support the economic projections for growth for the Greater Dublin Area and to protect the environment. An Bord Pleanála commenced a sevenweek statutory consultation on the application this week, which will close on Tuesday, July 31. Submissions or observations can be made up until 5.30pm on

that date. The planning application includes an Environmental Impact Assessment Report and a Natura Impact Statement and may be viewed at or downloaded from www.

WORK has got underway on flood alleviation works along the River Poddle. Nicholas O’Dwyer Ltd have been appointed by South Dublin County Council to lead the design of the landmark Poddle Flood Alleviation Scheme. The project is part of an adaptation action by South Dublin County Council and Dublin City Council in response to future threats posed by climate change. The scheme is estimated to cost in the region of €7 million and will be funded by the Office of Public Works. The Poddle River has caused extensive flooding in the region in the past.



Council to tackle canal litter DUBLIN City Council’s Waste Management Services are to install solar compactor bins along the Grand Canal in a bid to tackle the problem of litter that has caused outrage in recent months. During the recent spells of good weather, large numbers of people have been congregating close to Portobello Bridge and along the banks of the canal. Fianna Fáil TD for Dublin Bay South, Jim O’Callaghan, said that while many of them are enjoying themselves and not breaking any laws, the problem is that others do not clean up after

themselves. “They have a complete disregard for residents in the area who are forced to put up with them urinating in public and often on their doorsteps,” Deputy O’Callaghan said. “I understand that gardaí stationed in Pearse Street patrol the area to curb any anti-social behaviour but when evening comes it’s the residents of Portobello and Harold’s Cross who are left to deal with reams of unwanted rubbish. “Only just recently a huge voluntary and community led effort was put in to cleaning up the canal as part of the Dublin Waters Day initiative to

clean up the rivers and canals in our city. It is a terrible shame that the actions of those visiting the area when the sun is shining undo all that hard work. “Piles of rubbish left strewn along the canal are not just unpleasant to look at and taint the landscape, they potentially pollute the water and endanger the wildlife that rely on it. “It’s great that people can get together and enjoy the sun by the water at Portobello Bridge but they need to be more conscious of the environmental impact of their litter and general waste on our urban

This photo was posted on Twitter to highlight the canal’s litter problem. community. “We all have a civic and personal responsibility to properly dispose of any waste we generate, whether that’s at home or in public, and those who ignore that should face repercussions. “I have written to Dublin City Council to urge them to assign a number of litter wardens to monitor that area during good weather and who can issue on the spot litter fines.” Deputy O’Callaghan added: “The

bye-laws in place for the prevention and control of litter in our city must be better utilised and enforced to deter anyone from leaving their rubbish behind for others to collect.” A council spokesperson said that extra solar compactor bins will be installed between Mespil Road and Portobello to provide significant additional capacity for litter generated during times of increased demand. “Given the concentration of

This area will be closely monitored by our cleaning crews and litter wardens and every effort will be made to keep this area as clean as possible over the coming months.”




Vigilance needed at level crossings and then cut across your lane is a particular bugbear of mine. Like many motorists stuck in Dublin gridlock, I hate approaching a Editor railway level crossing in morning or Dublin People Group evening peak traffic. Getting across Merrion Gates is a daily nightmare for commuters and the level crossing at Sutton station can also result in congestion pinch points. OBSERVING flashing red lights at a In an ideal world, level crossings railway level crossing would seem would be replaced by an underpass like a no-brainer to most people. After all, if your car gets stuck on the or overpass, a measure that would tracks as a train rapidly approaches, help keep traffic moving. But as the likelihood of this ever happening there’s really only going to be one in Dublin is slim to none, for the outcome. moment at least we are stuck with We regularly see stupid behaviour on our roads, from the speed freaks to the reality of the stop/go system to facilitate the safe movement of trains. the idiots babbling into their mobile Last week, Iarnród Éireann had to phones at traffic lights. Motorists remind users of all level crossings who fail to indicate on a roundabout


There have been a number of incidents this year at level crossings, including Merrion Gates. PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA to avoid distraction and always behave safely when passing through them. To mark International Level Crossing Safety Day, it was revealed that reported incidents of misuse of level crossings have increased by 50 percent this year. So far in 2018, there have been 27 incidents involving users striking or damaging barriers. Thankfully, there has been a reduction from seven to four of the number of near-miss incidents at user-operated crossings. In Dublin, the level crossing gates at Merrion, Serpentine, Sydney Parade and Sutton station have each been struck by road vehicles three

times already this year. Misuse of crossings by cyclists and pedestrians is becoming a concerning issue, with eight incidents recorded so far in 2018. Level crossing accidents account for 1.2 percent of road deaths in Europe but 29 percent of all rail fatalities. And although Ireland’s record is far stronger than the European average, Iarnród Éireann is spreading the message that vigilance is essential. Moyagh Murdock, chief executive of the Road Safety Authority, summed it up perfectly, saying: “It really is hard to believe that people will take silly chances with trains but I’m afraid

that’s exactly what’s happening in some parts of the country, especially at unattended level crossings. It is vital that we treat level crossings with extreme caution, especially unattended crossings. Trains are high powered, high speed vehicles and in the event of a collision, the consequences for a car, motorcycle, bicycle or pedestrian could be catastrophic. The rule of thumb is to always expect a train and obey the signs and signals at level crossings.” A video clip of some of the incidents that have occurred can be viewed on the Dublin People Facebook page at

A proud day for Drimnagh school OUR Lady of Good Counsel Boys’ National School on Mourne Road in Drimnagh was awarded its first Active Schools flag last week. On what was a proud day for the school, staff, students, parents and the board of management watched local Olympic

gold medal winner and local hero, Michael Carruth, raise the blue flag for the first time. The whole school community has worked hard for over a year to get this highly soughtafter award. The flag is awarded to schools that increase physical activity,

physical education and partnerships with local and national sporting organisations. The school increased physical activity in students through initiatives such as Movement Mondays, a running club, Wake Up Wednesday, Football Free

Friday, Active Lines and PE homework. The school was highly commended for its initiatives, with the accreditor noting the many activities going on in the school and how engaged all the staff, students and parents were in the process.

New Primary Care Centre in Tallaght

Southside songwriter releases new single TALENTED Balinteer singer-songwriter, Ger Kirrane, releases his debut single, ‘Eye of a Storm’, across all platforms this week. The song was produced by Brendan Carthy at the Orchard Studio, in Enniscorthy. Ger provides the guitars, keys and vocals with Brendan on drums, percussion and lending his expertise behind the desk. Ger explains that for years he has been playing in pubs, clubs and festivals but always put his own songs on the

back burner. “The time feels right now to focus on my own material and see where it takes me,” he says. Ger Kirrane is a professional musician, songwriter and teacher. Originally classically trained on the piano through the Royal Irish Academy of Music, he also has a Music Degree from University College Dublin. He plays several instruments across a range of styles and has toured as a session musician with some of Ireland’s most established folk groups and showbands. Ger is taking a break from gigging to concentrate on writing his own material. Check out ‘Eye of a Storm’ on YouTube.

THE OFFICIAL opening of a Primary Care Centre at the Russell Building in Springfield is an important development which will ensure that Tallaght has a health service which can meet the needs of local people into the future, Minister Katherine Zappone has said. According to Minister Zappone, the location of local GPs, HSE services and experts from Trinity College Dublin in one location makes the Springfield Centre the first of its kind in the country. As she welcomed the opening by Taoiseach, Leo Varadkar, Minister Zappone said that not only is the centre providing important services such as speech and language, physiotherapy and an out of hours clinic, it is also a place of research to ensure

future health needs are identified and addressed. “Bringing health services into the local community makes it easier for people of all ages to access the care and support they need,” Minister Zappone said. “The bundling of services into the Springfield Centre will cut down journeys to hospitals and reduce the burden on Accident and Emergency services in Tallaght Hospital. In addition to routine services there is a General Nursing Wound Dressing Clinic, an Antenatal Outpatient Clinic, GPs and a pharmacy on site. “What is truly groundbreaking is the link with Trinity College, making this the first academic Primary Care Centre in the country. From here, experts will look at local

“As the Springfield centre officially opens, it is also important that planning continues for a new Primary Care Centre to serve the Kilnamanagh and Tymon communities. “I am in close contact

with my colleague the Minister for Health to ensure that this project is delivered on time so that families can enjoy the benefits of treatment and services in their local area.”



Man found guilty of aggravated burglary Sarah Murphy and Declan Brennan A JURY has convicted a Southside man of the aggravated burglary, assault and robbery of an 81-year old farmer in north Dublin in July 2016. Adam Marlowe (23), of Walkinstown Drive, Walkinstown, had pleaded not guilty to aggravated burglary and assaulting Malachy Turley causing him harm at Kettles Lane, Kinsealy, on

July 29, 2016. After a four-day trial at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court, a jury of eight men and two women last week returned unanimous guilty verdicts on all counts. The jury had deliberated for approximately one hour. Judge Melanie Greally remanded Mr Marlowe in custody for sentence on July 6. The trial heard evidence that Marlowe's DNA profile was found on blue latex material located in

the home of the elderly farmer who was beaten with bats in his bed by three people wearing balaclavas. The material was described as the fingertip of a latex glove. It was the State's case that Mr Marlowe was one of the three men who entered the victim's home, attacked him and robbed him. With only one piece of DNA evidence available to the jury, Judge Greally had told the jury to approach this evidence with care.

Councillor cross over lack of safe crossing A SINN Féin councillor has expressed his frustration at South Dublin County Council’s refusal to place a pedestrian crossing close to the entrance of the new Clondalkin Equine Club on the Fonthill Road. Cllr Mark Ward said the council had carried out a study at the location and have formed the opinion that there is not enough pedestrian traffic to warrant the provision of a crossing. He pointed out that the Clondalkin Addiction Support Programme is also nearby and would benefit from improved safety measures at this location.

This could include making it wheelchair-accessible, extending it to create more space, adding a groundfloor bathroom or toilet or adding a stair-lift.” Grants of up to €30,000 are available to assist people with a disability in carrying out necessary works and up to €8,000 to assist older people living in poor housing conditions to have necessary repairs or improvements carried out. Up to €6,000 is also available for mobility aids. Senator Richmond said he hopes to see a good take-up of the scheme from locals.

Second-hand uniform sale in Stillorgan ST RAPHAELA’S Secondary School in Stillorgan is holding a second-hand school uniform sale on Friday, June 22, to raise funds for Fr Tony Coote’s ‘Walk While You Can’ campaign for motor neurone disease. They’re asking parents of current and former students to support the event by dropping outgrown or no longer needed items in good condition into the school office anytime between now and the day of the sale. Fr Tony Coote, the administrator for the St Laurence O’Toole and Mount Merrion parishes, was diagnosed with motor neurone disease earlier this year. But never one to be struck down by adversity, he’ll be walking 500km, from Letterkenny in Donegal to Ballydehob in West Cork, this summer to raise funds for research into new medication and caring for those affected by the condition.

Plan 2013-2019. It believed that the development, by itself or by precedent, would adversely affect the use of the Enniskerry Road by traffic and would interfere with the character of the surrounding landscape. Chairperson of Kilternan Glenamuck Residents’ Association, Aileen Eglington, pointed out that the area has been rezoned for housing development for a number of years but the recession had slowed down building. “Our association, together with local schools and residents in the area, contributed hugely to the Local Area Plan for Kilternan Glenamuck which came into being in 2013,” she said. “That LAP sought to recognise Kilternan as being in the rural part of the county and to protect the mountains and views

and also ensure that the existing village would grow holistically.” She added: As a result, planning of height and density was layered, so that the most density was away from the mountains and closer to the Luas and M50. This has been clear since 2013.” Ms Eglington said the council had made the correct decision by refusing planning permission. “We all think that councils must manage growth and manage landscapes for future generations,” she told Southside People. “This is nothing to do with housing stock - this is to do with getting it right in terms of planning.” It has been reported that the developers intend to appeal the council’s decision to An Bord Pleanála.

Soak up more than sun in Lanzarote THINK Lanzarote and it's easy to conjure up images of sun drenched beaches and clear blue skies, but it's not just the year round warm temperatures that make this a hot holiday destination. Every year thousands of holiday makers make their way to this otherworldly paradise and while topping up the tan and lazing around sipping cheap, exotic drinks is not to be sniffed at, far too many visitors miss out on all the alternative ways to enjoy the island. In an effort to broaden its attraction the local tourism board is now promoting Lanzarote's other sides, and taking time off from pool-side activities to explore certainly pays off in spades. At first glance the island's barren countryside looks like a bleak, lunar landscape, but the unique rock formations created by historic volcanic activity become, on closer inspection, surprisingly captivating. The power of past explosions from the 300 plus now dormant volcanoes on the small island is almost tangible, and it’s easy to imagine how past civilisations would have felt compelled to worship the Fire Mountains. The rugged topography stretches at times for as far as the eye can see, but it's viewed at its magnificent best from along the winding roads of Timanfaya National Park.

The park’s Montañas del Fuego (Fire Mountains) were largely created in six devastating years between 1730 and 1736 when more than 100 volcanoes unleashed their fiery fury and spewed out tons of lava which formed a Martian-like terrain that allowed rare flora to flourish – much to the delight of nature lovers. Thankfully the area has cooled, but over 300 years later it's still hot enough to allow tourists experience something of the volcanic energy of 18th century Lanzarote. Visitors to Timanfaya are treated to demonstrations at the side of holes dug just beneath the surface. Dry brush thrown into the ground catches fire almost instantaneously while a bucket of cold water erupts seconds later in the form of a mini-geyser, startling onlookers. The nearby 'El Diablo' restaurant uses geothermal heat from a grill placed over a large hole in the ground to cook traditional dishes, giving a whole new meaning to eco-friendly food. You might think Lanzarote's rocky landscape would make most of the island uninhabitable, and for the most part you'd be right, but with a flaky imagination and sheer artistic drive it's possible to design a luxury dream home. And that's exactly what artist and architect, César Manrique, had and did. Manrique's impressive list of

carved basalt and the garden's landscape is dominated by an eight metre high, Gaudi-like cactus sculpture. On the face of it, a cactus display spread over a couple of acres might seem like the whacky notion, but the vast array of beautifully landscaped, brightly coloured cacti show that Manrique's idea was truly inspired. One of the great things about Lanzarote is that while you've got the 300 days of glorious sunshine, the temperatures don't reach the uncomfortable highs of rival destinations in Greece or Turkey. It’s also just within comfortable travelling distance, around four hours from Ireland. Naturally, the beaches remain the island's number one attraction and there's over 80 to choose from, all with turquoise clear waters and plenty with wide, sandy beaches. Most of the Irish head for Puerto Del Carmen which makes a great base to relax in and explore from. The beach is excellent and there's plenty of modern and traditional retail outlets stocked with all those tax-free goodies. There are also lots of family-friendly café bars and restaurants in the area. Throw in a round of golf at the nearby, freshly built Lanzarote Golf Resort and you’ve got yourself one hell of a holiday in a truly unique setting.

Unique volcanic island Lanzarote - beautiful beach Papagayo, Canary islands of Spain friends and acquaintances included luminaries like Rita Hayworth, King Hussein of Jordan, Chancellor of Germany Helmut Kohl and Andy Warhol. He adopted Lanzarote as his home and his vision helped advance the island's tourism industry, while protecting it from overdevelopment by campaigning for all buildings to be painted in traditional colours and constructed no higher than the tallest palm tree. His legacy is best experienced at the home he build at Taro de Tahiche in 1968. This is no ordinary holiday villa but James Bond's arch enemy, Dr No, could easily have used it as a secret, summer retreat.

The home is constructed on top of a volcanic trail from an eruption that occurred in 1730-36 and it uses the natural formation of five volcanic bubbles for the main rooms. Windows are carved from the inside, giving it a cave-like feel, but the lavish furnishing, avant-garde art works, funky swimming pool, party barbecue and small dance floor make it pure swinging sixties. Manrique's influence can be experienced again at El Jardin De Cactus (Cactus Garden), which was the last Centre of Art, Culture and Tourism that he created before his untimely death in a car crash on the island in 1992.

Staffordshire Bull Terriers as pets Kerri Sullivan STAFFORDSHIRE Bull Terriers - or Staffies as they are more commonly known - make lovely, affectionate pets. Unfortunately we often see a lot of them in Dogs Trust due to overbreeding or those that arrive from dog pounds having been surrendered by people who may not have realised how much care and attention a dog really needs. Staffies are generally friendly, enthusiastic, snuggle-bugs who are truly committed to their human companions but, like all dogs, they do need to be well socialised from a young age with dogs, humans and other animals. They are very eager to please, so given the right home and some good training and handling, Staffies can prove to be a loving and

loyal family pet. Please don’t overlook them when you are thinking about getting a dog. What you should know

They have earned the nickname ‘keg on legs’ thanks to their compact yet muscular appearance. • They have an amazing and distinctive vocal range and can emit all kinds of wonderful Staffie sounds such as little piglike grunts when they are happy. • Staffies are totally devoted to their families - anyone who shows a Staffie love and attention will get the same back, and more to spare! • They are intelligent, fun loving and live life full throttle, so need owners who have plenty of time to play with them, and lots of toys to keep them busy. • Staffies are full of energy, and owners of these powerhouse dogs soon notice how fit they get from all the exercise about owning a Staffie: • The Staffordshire Bull they have to do with them. Terrier is distinctive in • Being muscular and its good looks, and they can be easily identified by strong they need owners their solid, barrel-chested who are able to manage

them on the lead. • If left without anything to do for a long time, Staffies can get very bored and may become destructive. They need tough, hard and nondestructive toys. Choosing to get a dog is a big decision, so please think very carefully about whether you have the time and energy to take one on as, despite the rewards, and like any dog, Staffies do require a huge commitment from their owners in order to lead happy lives. If you have your heart set on a Staffie, please visit our Rehoming Centre to chat with our rehoming team to hear and see more about these little bundles of love and energy!

Travelling with your pet If like us, your pet is part of the family it is only natural that you will want to take them on holidays with you. You can eliminate unnecessary stress for you and your pet by researching your travel options prior to your holiday.

Before your trip Ensure your pet is in good health by taking the time to visit the vet. Some airlines will also request a fit to fly certificate for pets. Check that all your pets’ vaccinations are up to date before you travel and you should never travel with a sick, injured or pregnant pet. We would recommend micro-chipping your pet before travelling and if your pet is already micro chipped check that all details are up to date. Investing in a new identification collar with details of where you can be contacted while on holidays is also a good idea.

Travelling with your pet by car It is not safe to let your pet roam free in the car and pet seat belts and harnesses have been developed to provide safety and comfort for your dog while travelling. The CLIX CarSafe harness is made from approved safety-standard seatbelt material and has been designed in a continuous loop, to ensure that in the unfortunate event of an accident, maximum strength is retained.

Always ensure your pet is correctly leashed before letting him out of the carrier. You can minimise motion sickness by offering light snacks and allowing these to be properly digested before returning to the car. Travel-Eze tablets are a natural herbal tablet that can help reduce the effects of motion sickness should your pet suffer. Never leave your pet alone in a car, on a warm day your car can rise to 49 Degrees Celsius within minutes, even with a window open.

Most pets, especially cats, feel safer when they travel in a carrier; the Capri Pet Travel Carrier has a device to attach the carrier securely to a car seat. This carrier has a compartment for storing treats, a hatch at the top to allow you access to your pet without opening the front door and ventilation slits. These features make it an excellent choice when selecting a pet travel carrier. Familiarise your pet with the carrier by introducing it before your trip and place a toy or blanket into the carrier on the day of travelling to lessen any stress. The benefits of using a pet restraint on car journeys are they prevent injury in the event of an accident or sudden braking and protect the passengers on board. They also reduce driver distraction and ensure your pet cannot escape the

Plane Most airlines require that pets fly in the hold of the aircraft and will only allow assistance dogs on-board during flights. Consider this before deciding to fly with

your pet. When it is necessary to fly your pet, there are many things you can do to make the journey as comfortable as possible for you and your pet. Flying is not recommended for certain dog breeds. Snub nose breeds which include Pugs, Boxers and Bulldogs have difficulty breathing and are unable to cool themselves down, making airline travel unsuitable for them. Check this with your vet prior to travel. Airlines require all pets to travel in an approved carrier, The Petmode Airline Carrier is an airline approved pet carrier, which allows safe and comfortable transportation for your pet. When choosing a carrier, select one that allows your pet to sit, stand and lie comfortably in. Pack a toy in the carrier on the day of travel for a sense of familiarity and to offer a distraction. To help easily identifyyour carrier, attach a travel label to the carrier, this should include your name, permanent address, telephone number, final destination, and where you or a contact person can be reached as soon as the flight arrives. Prior to flying only offer light meals and avoid feeding in the few hours before the flight. You must provide fresh water for your pet and to avoid spills consider using ice cubes or freezing your pets water bowl the night before. Carry a portable water bowl so that when you reach your destination you can offer fresh water. Should your flight incur a delay be sure to make the airline staff aware that your pet is on board, disembarkment may be necessary if the delay is lengthy. On arrival at your destination collect your pet immediately and go for a long walk before heading on the next leg of your journey.

Health Sock it to cancer on Father’s Day 16

THE Irish Cancer Society wants you to sock it to cancer on behalf of all men this Father’s Day. This year in Ireland over 17,000 men will get a cancer diagnosis. With one in three men at risk of developing cancer during their life, the society has launched a fundraising Father’s Day campaign to encourage men to put their health first. The campaign will help fund supports for men affected by cancer. The society has a new range of Father’s Day gifts including novelty No 1 Dad socks and IOU gift vouchers. Buy a gift and repay your dad for his lifetime of support, while making a difference to

the lives of men affected by cancer. The gifts are available now at www. Cancer survivor Chris Latham, from Stillorgan, is celebrating Father’s Day this year as he awaits the birth of his second child. Chris feared he'd never hold his own child, after being diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma aged 19. At the time Chris, now age 31, was told the treatment may make him infertile. But his son Jack, who is now two, was conceived naturally and Chris and fiancé Marie are now excitedly expecting their second child. “It was everything for me to be a dad and I'm

Money raised will help fund services to support men affected by cancer. The society offers a range of information services highlighting ways men can reduce the risk of cancer. These include a Men’s Manual and services like Daffodil Centres and

Cancer Nurseline. Head of Fundraising, Mark Mellett said: “Typically dads will spend their lives supporting their children from the sidelines, cheering them on, advising, defending, always there. “While they’re

concentrating on supporting their children they often sideline their own health and wellbeing. “Use this Father’s Day to encourage the father figure in your life to keep an eye on their health, while supporting the fight against cancer.”

Dental practice welcomes sugar tax AN award-winning dental practice in Dublin has welcomed the Government’s sugar tax, which is expected to bring in around €40 million annually to the exchequer. Dentists Gregg Barry and Danny Collins, cofounders of Docklands Dental, have encouraged the government to invest the revenue generated from the new levy in education programmes on diet and dental routines. The new levy came into effect on May 1 and applies to sugar-sweetened drinks with a sugar content of

Positive dental habits, starting at childhood, can lead to good life-long tooth health. PHOTO: BIGSTOCK between five and eight grams per 100ml, at a rate of 20c per litre, and 30c per litre for anything over eight grams. “Sugar content is incredibly high in soft

drinks,” Gregg Barry said. “So often, busy working professionals depend on soft drinks for that energy kick but it’s very damaging to teeth and the leading cause of tooth decay. “Thanks to modern dental developments, and state-of-the-art equipment, we can completely restore tooth decay and damage, but positive dental habits, starting at childhood, can lead to good life-long tooth health.” Sugar-sweetened drinks suppliers will be required to file a Sugar-Sweetened Drinks Tax return and

pay any liability arising no later than one month after the end of a two-month accounting period. “Hopefully the sugar tax will encourage people to buy products with a low sugar content, and encourage producers to reduce the level of sugar they use,” Danny Collins said. “We see a range of patients in our clinic, some who just need a simple filling, braces or veneers; and others who need extensive work, usually caused by poor diet and dental health practices. “The sugar tax could

lead to life-long dental benefits to entire generations of Irish people. “Sugar and smoking are the most common factors that negatively impact on tooth health, across all socio economic brackets and ages. “We really welcome this tax levy and it would be great to see the government go the next step and reinvest this money in dental health education.” Docklands Dental has two successful clinics in Dublin, one in the IFSC and one in Sir John Rogerson’s Quay.

HARD ROCK CAFE DUBLIN CELEBRATES 47th BIRTHDAY WITH 71 CENT LEGENDARY BURGERS Cycling legend and sports writer, Paul Kimmage, pictured with Jim Leahy, a staff member at St Joseph’s Shankhill, at the TrioBike launch last week. PHOTO: DARREN KINSELLA

TrioBike launch at Saint Joseph’s THE sun was shining at St Joseph’s in Shankill for last week’s launch of the TrioBike. Sports writer and former Olympic cyclist, Paul Kimmage, officially launched the TrioBike, which is designed to get its residents out and about. Paul said: “I for one know just how wonderful it is to experience the sense of freedom of cycling and it is amazing to witness the residents and their families enjoying this TrioBike, despite the limitations of their illness.” Fundraising manager Siobhan Grant put out a call on behalf of St Joseph’s to potential volunteers in the community who would like to become a ‘TrioBike pilot’. She said: “We would love to recruit as many people as possible to join our TrioBike team, enabling our residents to feel the wind in their

hair and enjoy the beautiful surrounds of our local community. We are calling out to our community to volunteer with us to become TrioBike pilots. We will provide training in the operation of the TrioBike to ensure everyone’s safety and enjoyment.” The TrioBike was purchased through a number of family and staff run fundraising initiatives. St Joseph’s is an affiliate of the Cycling Without Age international programme which has a vision of creating happiness among elderly citizens by providing them with an opportunity to remain an active part of society and the local community. Over 30 volunteer pilots have already been trained to pedal the bike, taking residents – who are living with dementia – and their families on cycles around Shankill. For more information on becoming a TrioBike pilot, call 01-2823000.

Our Dublin Location Commemorates Hard Rock’s Founding in 1971 with 71 Cent Original Legendary® Burgers It all started with two music-loving Americans who just wanted to find a good burger while living in London. Hard Rock’s founders had a vision to combine music, memorabilia and delicious all-American fare for a one-of-a-kind guest experience. On June 14, 1971, they opened their own American style diner in an old Rolls Royce dealership and called it Hard Rock Cafe. To celebrate the brand’s 47th birthday on Wednesday, June 14, Hard Rock Café Dublin will pay homage to 1971 with an Original Legendary® Burger offer for just 71 cent per guest on a first-come, first-served basis from 11am to midday. Hard Rock Cafe’s Original Legendary® Burger features a beef patty topped with smoked bacon, cheddar cheese, a golden fried onion ring, crisp lettuce and vine ripened tomato, served on a toasted brioche bun with Hard Rock’s seasoned fries. Just like the artists whose memorabilia lines the walls at Hard Rock Cafes around the world, the burgers that Hard Rock serves are nothing short of “Legendary.” All burgers are made with the highest quality meats, fresh toppings, savory sauces and rich, melted cheeses. In addition to 71 cent burgers, Hard Rock Cafe Dublin will celebrate its birthday a 70’s themed party. Guests are also encouraged to wear disco era clothes and join in the festivities.

Audi joins Electric Charge Challenge AUDI Centre has weighed in to support a major fundraising challenge that will see a relay of electric vehicles travel more than 2,000 miles to destinations across Ireland and the UK. The carbon-neutral challenge is part of an exciting initiative developed by owner Lookers plc, one of the largest retailers in the UK and the Ireland, and all 155 of the group’s franchised dealerships are taking part. The Lookers Electric Charge kicked off at Audi Centre’s state-of-the-art £20 million showroom in Sandyford before setting off for Northern Ireland to visit Charles Hurst’s network of dealerships.

From Belfast, the Electric Charge relay will move across the Irish Sea to Scotland, travelling across Britain before it finally reaches Eastbourne in October. Audi Centre – already Ireland’s greenest and largest car showroom – joins the group-wide initiative which is now going one step further in its commitment to the environment, where plans to adopt areas of woodland along the route are already underway. Carbon credits will also be purchased to ensure that the environmental target of completing the challenge carbon neutral is achieved. A range of fundraising activities are planned

across the 2,000-mile route, from carbon neutral days and green energy workshops to test drive events and golf. As well as promoting the work of automotive industry charity Ben, the Electric Charge initiative provides the company with an opportunity to promote its growing range of in-demand electric cars and drive the conversation around the positive impact they make on the environment and how they can be used to help governments reach environmental targets quickly. A total of 180 Lookers outlets will be visited as part of the initiative, including the Electrification Suite at

Jaguar’s Castle Bromwich facility and Ford’s iconic factory in Dagenham. While in London, the Electric Charge will also hold the ultimate showdown between electric car and bike in a first-to-the-finish race across the city. Donal Duggan, Head of Business at Audi Centre, said: “Already at the forefront of energyefficiency, sustainability and innovation, this significant fundraising initiative will help to drive the conversation and debate around technology and showcase the amazing range of next-generation electric vehicles which are already here and ready to make a real impact on the environment.”

Easy does it for the summer


KEEPING the back garden in tiptop shape doesn’t mean you need to be out with the lawnmower ever other day. Gardening is a great hobby for some but most of us just want to be able to enjoy the garden in the summer without being a slave to its upkeep. The secret to stress free maintenance is not to let things get out of hand. Water your lawn and plants only when necessary. Make sure you water deeply enough to moisten the root zone (top 5 to 6 inches of soil) completely. If you water lightly and frequently, roots will not grow deeply into the soil. Fertilise with products that don’t stress your lawn. Experts agree that fertiliser containing large amounts of fast release nitrogen stresses lawns. The quick burst of nitrogen pushes grass to grow faster than normal. Fast growing grass means more precious moisture is needed. Excessive nitrogen also

exposes lawns to various disease and insect problems. Recycle nutrients. Leave short clippings, mulch longer ones, and leave them on your lawn. This reduces the amount of fertiliser you need to add to your lawn. Nutrients such as nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium and iron in this mulch will be recycled back into the lawn. As some nitrogen is lost during plant growth, use an environmentally friendly organic nitrogen fertiliser to replace the nitrogen used by the lawn. Mow the lawn on a regular basis. Only remove 1/3 of the top at any one time. And mow high to remove only leaves, not stems. Make sure your lawnmower blades are sharp so they cut, rather than tear, grass. Properly cut grass recovers quickly, reducing the risk of damage caused by insects and disease. Plus, it just looks better. Dull blades tear grass, which looks unsightly and takes more time to heal.

Private bus company announces 425 jobs THE country's newest private bus has announced the creation of 425 new jobs and an €8.5 million investment in its operation here. The roles at GoAhead Ireland will be company-wide and will include up to 350 bus drivers as well as engineers, maintenance support, mechanics, planners, operational and administrative personnel. Speaking at the announcement, Ed Wills, managing director of Go-Ahead Ireland, said: "We're very much open for business and want to hear from anyone who is interested in working with us. “Since being awarded the contract to run 24 of the existing Outer Dublin Metropolitan Area (ODMA) bus routes by the National

Transport Authority (NTA) last August, we have been building our Dublin operation in preparation for a phased rollout commencing September 2018. “Our buses will serve communities from the Liffey to Lucan and from Balbriggan to Bray. “Creating these new 425 jobs and providing a financially secure and investment ready business is critical for our colleagues, our customers and our ambitious expansion plans. “We are passionate about what we do and are focused on attracting the very best talent out there.” Most of the roles being recruited for are bus drivers, reflecting the NTA contract win, and the increased use of public transport in the ODMA.
