Dublin could learn a lot from Munich TONY McCULLAGH Editor Dublin People Group

I SPENT a very enjoyable afternoon in Munich last week, a city that had previously failed to make my travel wish-list for some inexplicable reason. The Bavarian capital, with a population of around 1.5 million, is similar in scale to Dublin. Germany’s third city is something of a cultural oasis, with its vast array of historic buildings, cathedrals and museums – it’s a bit like a cleaner, more

organised Dublin. High-end stores and shopping malls dominate Munich’s pedestrianised areas, resembling a super-sized Grafton Street in places. And also similar to Dublin, it’s a city fond of its beer as visitors to the legendary Oktoberfest will know all too well. I was particularly struck by Munich’s expansive public transport network. Its mix of old and new trams, similar in appearance to our own Luas, are a constant presence and seem to take up priority street space in the city centre. But the real story is how Munich is not over-reliant on one mode of transport. At street level there are also buses and suburban trains (S-Bahn), while the U-Bahn offers a highly efficient underground rail

Trams are just one of many public transport options in Munich. PHOTO: BIGSTOCK network. The icing on the cake was the train service that brought us directly from the city centre to our terminal at Munich Airport. Given the public transport options available, I was intrigued to later learn that Munich has one of the worst traffic congestion rates in Germany. From what I could see, it didn’t come anywhere close to the chaos you see in Dublin on a daily basis. One thing’s for sure: if I lived

Antique, Vintage & Modern Furniture Lighting, Art, Homewares & Collectables

in a city with Munich’s standard of public transport, I wouldn’t bother owning a car. Arriving back home, I noted that, to some extent, the addition of private bus services to and from Dublin Airport has reduced passengers’ dependency on expensive taxi journeys and overpriced car parking. But the only viable long-term solution will be the provision of a highfrequency, high capacity rail link to

the airport and beyond to Swords, one of the fastest growing towns in the country. The original proposed MetroLink route has already met with objections on both sides of the city and will need to be modified. This ambitious plan is bound to encounter further obstacles and delays so there is a very real possibility that the taxpayer could end up footing the bill for more cost overruns - yet again!

Work gets underway at St Teresa’s Gardens THE Lord Mayor of Dublin, Nial Ring, performed a sodturning ceremony at St Teresa’s Gardens last week to mark the start of the latest phase of construction at the wellknown site. The development of 54 new housing units includes 16 apartments, 28 three-bedroom terraced houses and 10 two-bedroom terraced houses. Speaking about the event the Lord Mayor said: “This latest phase in the ongoing regeneration works in St Teresa’s Gardens continues the huge amount of work already done in rejuvenating this area. “The provision of an additional 54 new housing units is especially welcome. I am delighted to see the plans include a fantastic new park and playground that will

further enhance not only the area but the lives of the people who are fortunate to live here.” Dublin City Council’s Parks & Landscapes Services Division will shortly commence a consultation process with key local stakeholders in relation to a proposed park that will include a playground, pitch and municipal facility. Since 2010, Dublin City Council, together with St Teresa’s Regeneration Board and the residents have been planning for the regeneration of the site and the development of the lands. From 2014 onwards huge efforts have been made into detenanting, demolitions, further consultation, design processes and refurb works. To facilitate the regeneration, in-situ sports clubs and a

commercial unit were relocated to newly fitted out units in the two refurbished blocks (incorporating a football club and boxing club premises/changing facility and a shop). A new Part 8 was approved in 2018 for an

additional four social housing units (increasing the social housing provision to 54). It also allowed for the provision of Phase A of the public park, a temporary grass multi-sport pitch to the rear of the two remaining flat blocks and

the future demolition of the remaining flat blocks to facilitate the development of Phase B of the park with a larger multi-sport pitch. It was envisaged that the existing sports clubs would be relocated to facilities at Donore Hall.

Tallaght leads the way with new heating system A GROUND-breaking district heating system for Tallaght has received a huge boost by securing €4.5m in Government funding. The local scheme is one of seven across the country which made a successful bid for funding under Project Ireland 2040. According to Minister Katherine Zappone, South Dublin County Council and Tallaght have now taken the opportunity to lead in the development of a sustainable district heating solution. Minister Zappone said that combatting the global challenge of climate change will only work when local communities take the lead. “The fact that our local communities have been selected in the first round of Climate Action Funding under

Project Ireland 2040 is a tribute to the foresight of those experts in South Dublin County Council and local campaigners determined to safeguard our environment,” the minister said. “Ending the impact of climate change, including severe weather, will only happen with imagination, innovation and inventiveness. “By coming together to develop a local sustainable heating system, those living and working in Tallaght are showing their readiness to take such an approach. “This will be a project which will benefit homes and businesses.” Minister Zappone added: “There will be further rounds of funding. Our communities need to identify other ways in which we can play our part.” TH

GALLINEE FACE VINEGAR (RRP €26) When it comes to skincare ingredients, vinegar doesn’t typically spring to mind. However, it seems that this is about to change, as beauty vinegars are set to be one of the most sought-after new formulas to arrive at cosmetic counters this year. So, what exactly is a face vinegar? A face vinegar is a face toner based on vinegar. The Gallinee Face Vinegar contains Actibiome, a prebiotic from French algae that works to calm stressed skin and prevent it from further irritations alongside postbiotics which are vinegar (acetic acid) and lactic acid. The second active ingredient is the hibiscus vinegar. Extracted from the hibiscus flower that’s native to Central America, the vinegar improves skin by purifying, protecting and proliferating. In general, a face vinegar can be used on all skin types and in the place of a toner in a daily regime. Gallinee products are available from leading pharmacies.

sentence to May last year. Sergeant Brendan O'Halloran told John Byrne BL, prosecuting, that at 1.30am on the morning in question a Garda patrol unit noticed that a red Nissan Micra seemed to hesitate upon the driver spotting the gardaí. The car sped off when the gardaí approached and the unit gave pursuit. O'Brien drove quickly down the wrong direction of several one-way streets and through red traffic lights. O'Brien appeared to lose control of the car on North King Street and stalled. When he turned the engine back on he reversed towards the patrol car that had also come to a halt and collided with it while two gardaí were still in the car.

Another patrol car took up the pursuit, which came to an end on Queen's Street when O'Brien collided with the taxi. O'Brien, his passenger and the taxi driver all had to be removed from the vehicles and were brought

to hospital where they were treated for minor injuries. Sgt O'Halloran interviewed O'Brien and he admitted that he had been banned from driving at the time of the incident. He accepted all of the charges and said he was

“genuinely sorry”. Sgt O'Halloran agreed with Karl Monahan BL, defending, that O'Brien had had significant difficulty with drug use. He is on 20ml of methadone per day while in custody and is attempting to break free

of his addiction. Mr Monahan said his client had “got a fright” when he saw the patrol unit. He added that he drove away as he was disqualified from driving at the time. O'Brien was intoxicated during the incident.

St Raphaela’s students stage Sci-Fest ST RAPHAELA'S Secondary School in Stillorgan recently held a Sci-Fest in School Science Competition for their First Year Science students. Participants presented projects on a diverse range of science topics including gravity, sugar addiction and which fruits and vegetables conduct

electricity. With over 50 First Year projects on display in the competition the judges, who came from a range of different science backgrounds, found it very difficult to select the winning projects. Five prizes were eventually awarded by Sheila Parsons, the CEO of SciFest Ireland.

First place was awarded to a project on Friction, second place to a project on the ‘Effects of Wi-Fi on Seeds’, and third place went to a project investigating which type of paper plane flies best. The Best Communicator Award was awarded to students who presented a project entitled ‘Do We Really Eat with Our Eyes’.

Four tennis players claim an official world record THE Guinness Book of Records has approved a new World Record set by four Irishmen for the longest ever doubles tennis match. The four clocked up a record-breaking 62 hours of play at Fitzwilliam Lawn Tennis Club in Dublin last July. Now the Guinness Book of Records, having reviewed the detailed submission including 62 hours of video tape, announced that they had approved the submission for the longest marathon doubles tennis record. The four – former Davis Cup players, David Mullins and James Cluskey and Daniel O’Neill and Luke McGuire from Trinity Tennis Club – stopped playing with a scoreline of 77 sets to 72. The record event was a major fundraiser for the Enjoy Tennis programme which has to date enabled almost 1,000 players with a disability to learn and play the game in 70 clubs around Ireland.

toughness and resilience got us through. We had a plan and for the most part we stuck to that plan. I think the support of the other players, volunteers and our families really helped us and there is no way we could have done it alone.” Dan O’Neill added: “Thinking back, during my toughest moments it was the unwavering belief of the other guys, my parents and friends, combined with the incredible knowledge of our trainer, Leo Daniel Ryan, that got me through it. “It has been great to see how Enjoy Tennis has grown in the meantime and I am proud of everyone who was involved and played a part

in this huge event.” David Mullins said: “It is wonderful news to hear that Guinness have recognised the hard work of everyone involved in this big undertaking. “It would not have been possible without a huge amount of organisation and dedication from all the stakeholders involved in the project. “This acknowledgment makes our achievements that much sweeter.” Two independent witnesses were present at all times to ensure that the strict rules for a world record attempt set down by the Guinness Book of World Records were adhered to. “It was a huge undertaking,” said Liam O’Donohoe, President of Leinster Tennis, who coordinated the project. “And we are thrilled that it has all proven worthwhile and the World Record has been approved. “Huge praise must go to the four players who set the record.” The Enjoy Tennis programme includes players with an intellectual disability, autism, blind/vision impairment, Cerebral Palsy, Acquired Brain Injury and wheelchair users. The funds raised from the World Record attempt have also allowed organisers to bring Enjoy Tennis to the providers of services to those experiencing mental health issues across the community.



Legendary Dublin studios remembered THE legendary Dublin music studios where bands like U2, Clannad and The Waterboys recorded some of their iconic albums have been honoured with a new art installation as well as a series of live concerts. Clannad singer Moya Brennan unveiled two installations featuring the sleeves of 21 of the most famous albums recorded at Windmill Lane Studios that now form a ‘Vinyl Walkway’ embedded into the pavement of the redeveloped Windmill Lane, in Dublin’s South Docks. One of the installations is dedicated to the six U2 albums that included tracks recorded and mixed at the studios.

best-selling artists including Van Morrison and Kate Bush. James Morris, the founder of Windmill Lane Recording Studios, said the commemoration not only celebrates the musical heritage of Windmill Lane but also marks the extraordinary talent of those who worked there, in particular his former partner and co-founder of Windmill Recording Studios, Brian Masterson. “It is appropriate that both they and all the musicians and artists who worked here will be permanently remembered through the artwork of their album covers in Windmill Lane,” he said.

so it is great to see the wonderful legacy created in Windmill Lane being celebrated in this way.” In 1992 Windmill Lane Pictures sold the Windmill Lane Music Recording business and all its equipment to Windmill Lane Recording Studios cofounder Brian Masterson, who subsequently relocated the music recording studios to Ringsend. Windmill Lane Recording Studios continues to thrive at its Ringsend Road base, with international artists of the highest calibre coming to Ireland to record there, carrying on the legacy first established under the name at the Windmill Lane location. Artists who have

Pictured in front of the six U2 albums in the Vinyl Walkway are Niall Stokes, Editor of Hot Press; Moya Brennan of Clannad; and Kevin Nowlan, Chief Executive of Hibernia Hibernia REIT. As well as where the Dublin band’s crucial first three albums – ‘Boy’, ‘October’, and ‘War’ – were recorded in full, much of the vital work on ‘The Unforgettable Fire’, ‘The Joshua Tree’ and ‘Achtung Baby’ was completed in the original studio building on Windmill Lane. The studios, which are regarded as central to the development of an internationally successful music culture in Ireland, were also the recording location for albums by a string of international

Niall Stokes, editor of Hot Press, said that when Irish music really came of age in the late 1970s, one of the most important developments in that regard was the launch of the studios at Windmill Lane. “Over the following decade, apart from being a kind of second home for U2, the studios became a mecca for some of the leading lights of international music,” he said. “Among the albums featured in the installation here are some of my favourites of all time,

recorded there more recently include The Rolling Stones, AC/DC, U2, REM, Kylie Minogue, Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, Hozier and the late David Bowie, among many others. Windmill Lane Pictures continued to operate from Windmill Lane until 2009, during which time the original music studios were renamed Number 4 and continued to operate for film and TV. In 2015 the site was redeveloped as 1WML by property company Hibernia REIT.

Tallaght counselling service sees dramatic rise in demand A PROPERLY resourced community-based counselling service is key to addressing the growing waiting lists for mental health services. That’s according to the chief executive of the Village Counselling Service (VCS), Dr Marcella Finnerty. She was speaking as Minister of State with special responsibility for Mental Health and Older People, Jim Daly, visited the VCS facility in the Killinarden Enterprise Park in Tallaght last week. The VCS is the largest community-based counselling service in the country. It was established in 2004 to provide affordable and accessible primary care mental health intervention and prevention facilities. In its first year of operation, six therapists saw 24 clients in two portacabins at the

premises of the Tallaght Welfare Society in Tallaght Village. Fifteen years later, and a team of 154 volunteer counsellors now see in the region of 2,000 clients per year, equating to more than 500 hours of counselling each week. Dr Finnerty said they were delighted to welcome Minister Daly to Tallaght. “Over the past 15 years, our centre has grown at a rate we could not have imagined at its inception,” Dr Finnerty said. “And it continues to provide a high-quality, accessible, professional, affordable, community-based counselling service. “Mental health issues don’t discriminate,” Dr Finnerty added. “The average age of our clients is 32 and our clientele are drawn from all age groups – with a current age range from six years to over 80.

Chair of the Village Counselling Service, Anna Lee and chief executive, Dr Marcella Finnerty, are pictured with Minister Jim Daly during a visit to Tallaght last week. “We address a broad spectrum of problems for those who need help at any stage in their lives.” Issues for which clients seek help from the VCS

include depression; relationship problems; chemical dependency; loss and bereavement (including working with those who have been

affected by suicide); stress; self-esteem issues; sexual, physical and emotional abuse; and family concerns. Approximately 20 per

cent of the service’s clients are children and adolescents, who most com-mnly present with problems connected with parental separation and anxiety. Given this high percentage, the VCS opened the Sarah-Jane Child and Adolescent Service in 2008, of which more than 2,000 children and teenagers have availed to date. The VCS receives funding from the HSE, Tusla and the National Office for Suicide Prevention, as well as contributions from clients. Clients pay what they can afford, with the average contribution amounting to €13 per session, however, many clients pay less than that, or nothing at all. Chair of the VCS, Anna Lee, explained: “One of the core values of the VCS is that money must

not be a barrier to people accessing high-quality mental health care. “However, guaranteeing a quality service, in a welcoming environment that provides warmth and privacy for our clients and for those who deliver our services, comes at a cost. “Making the VCS’s vision for quality and accessibility real is an enormous challenge, which can only be met over the coming years if adequate resourcing is made available.” Minister Daly commended dedication of independent, voluntary organisations such as the Village Counselling Service. He said: “Its input is invaluable in providing support for the most vulnerable in society and in heightening awareness of the importance of research and education in this area.”

Webcam in ‘Mutternity Ward’ TO HIGHLIGHT the volume of puppies and their mums that we care for in our Rehoming Centre in Finglas, we will be streaming footage from our Mutternity Ward every Friday at 3pm! Not everyone knows that as well as adult dogs, we also have puppies who are also looking for their Forever Homes. If you are considering getting a puppy, please consider adopting one from a rescue rather than buying as there are so many in need of loving homes. If you are thinking of getting a puppy, but not sure if a new addition will suit your lifestyle, please take a look at the questions below which might help: Can I adopt a puppy if I work full time? Puppies need a lot of time and dedication to help them settle into their new homes and to become toilet trained, well rounded happy adult dogs. Like adult dogs, they wouldn’t do well if they were left on their own all day. If you work full time, maybe you have a relative that lives close by who would look after your puppy while you’re at work or maybe

there’s an adult dog in our rehoming centre who would happily snooze on your sofa if you had somebody to pop in and check on him during the day? The best thing to do if you are thinking of getting a dog or puppy is to call in and chat to our Rehoming Team for advice. Will a puppy or dog suit my lifestyle?

Having a bouncy, happy, playful puppy is a very enjoyable experience. However it is also a big commitment, demanding in time, money and care. Remember, a puppy will grow into a dog and will be with you for many years to come. Before you bring home a new puppy, you should ask yourself whether you are the right human for your furry friend! Will a dog or

puppy fit in well with your family? Have you or your children got allergies? Do your children know how to ‘Be Dog Smart’ – see for more information. Do you have any other pets? Will they get on with a new dog or puppy? Will I have enough time? Dogs, on average can live to be 13 years of age or older – are you ready

for such a big commitment? They need to be walked, most for at least 30 minutes twice a day. Dogs need your company and don’t enjoy spending time on their own for very long. Puppies need training, have you time for this? Can I afford to look after a dog? Can you afford to look after a dog? Your dog will need dog food, a bed, toys, vaccinations, to be neutered, a collar and lead, grooming, vet checks and possible emergency procedures that could cost thousands. You may want to consider pet insurance which could cost over €200 a year. The fee for adopting a dog from us is €160; every dog is vet checked, microchipped, and neutered and goes home with a very cool Dogs Trust lead and collar!

The Dublin People has teamed up with Dogs Trust to help find homes for lost and abandoned dogs. Top dog this week is Skye, a wonderful, fun-loving, four-year-old Staffordshire terrier cross girl. She is full of life and loves to play games, her favourite being fetch! Skye loves other dogs and is happiest when she has a doggy pal by her side. She likes to keep busy, whether it is lapping up attention, going on a walk or putting her clever mind to use with dog treat puzzles. Skye would love a quiet home with a patient family; a dog in the home would also be great! She needs an understanding family who will help her gain more confidence around people, but with some time and lots of love, she will make a fantastic addition to a very lucky family. If you have room in your heart and home for Skye then contact Dogs Trust on 01-8791000.

Dogs Trust is based in Finglas, just off exit 5 on the M50. Map and directions can be found on their website at www. You can also pop up for a visit. Dogs Trust is open six days a week from 12-4pm. The centre is closed all day Tuesday. You can also find Dogs Trust on Facebook at or Twitter @ DogsTrust_IE.



Roganstown wedding finalists EIGHT lucky couples have now been selected as finalists in our competition for a dream wedding package at Roganstown Hotel and Country Club worth €10,000. The eight finalists, who were selected from over 300 entries, recently gathered at Roganstown Hotel to celebrate their selection and meet wedding coordinator, Caroline Geraghty. Commenting on the response to the competition, Caroline said: “We have been overwhelmed by the volume of entries. It’s a sign of the times, during the worst housing crisis this generation has encountered, that a traditional wedding

reception can be beyond the budget of the average couple. “So many of the entrants have delayed their wedding plans in order to find a suitable home and then life has gotten in the way. But they are still hoping to have their dream wedding at some stage in the near future. We are delighted to be able to make this dream come true for one lucky couple.” Caroline said that she also has a special surprise up her sleeve for the runners-up. All will be revealed at the grand finale, which will take place on May 12 during the Summer Wedding Extravaganza at Roganstown Hotel and Country Club. She added: “Don’t worry

if you are not amongst our final couples - we have more surprises in store for any new couples looking for their dream wedding venue.” During the Wedding Extravaganza on May 12, there will be a range of prizes up for grabs throughout the day. These include a voucher for €1,000 off your wedding, a bridal hair and make-up package and even a pair of Jimmy Choo Glitter Wedding Sandals. To be eligible to win, couples must pre-register to attend the event on Eventbrite. If you are planning your special day and would like to hear from the team, email weddings@ or call 01-8433118.

Our first couple - Nathan and Laura How long have you been together? 14 years How long have you been engaged? Six months How did you meet? Nathan came back to my house with my sister’s friends. They were making noise so I came down to tell them to be quiet. Nathan spent the next week trying to convince me to go out with him.

How did you propose? On our anniversary Nathan hid the ring in a new handbag. When I found it he got on one knee and after I said yes we went out for dinner with our family. What’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever done for each other? Laura: On a night out, Nathan bought me an artificial rose and said he would love me till the last

petal died. Nathan: Laura regularly sends me love quotes to remind me how much she loves me. What would your first dance song be? K-Ci & Jojo – ‘All My Life’. What would it mean to win this prize? Over the years life has tried everything to tear us apart and through it all we stuck by each other. For us, to win this

Laura Hayden and Nathan Devine prize would mean the world to us as it would be the final step in proving to each other and the world that, no matter what, our love is forever.

Retired Garda chief to lead Inchicore plan RETIRED Assistant Garda Commissioner, Jack Nolan, has been appointed to develop a plan for a viable and sustainable community in Inchicore and Kilmainham. Fine Gael TD for Dublin South Central and Minister of State at the Department of Health, Catherine Byrne, welcomed the appointment as the

next step in economic and social regeneration of both these historic Southside locations. “Over the past 18 months I have brought serious matters affecting Kilmainham and Inchicore to the attention of the Taoiseach and my Ministerial colleagues,” Deputy Byrne said. “This was out of concern for the community where I live, and a desire

to see investment and improvements in the area. “Last October, I secured a commitment from the Minister of State for Housing and Urban Development, Damien English, that his Department would commission a report focusing on the economic and social regeneration of the local community. “I am delighted that this process is now underway

and will inform the development of a strategic social and community plan. “There is a very strong sense of community in Inchicore and Kilmainham and the area has a lot to offer,” Deputy Byrne added, “but it is fair to say that it has suffered from a lack of investment and proper planning, and faces many challenging social issues.”

Minister Catherine Byrne is pictured with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, Minister Damien English and Jack Nolan.



Southside People COMMUNITY & SPORTS Awards

Neil Fetherstonhaugh, Southside People editor

AS a local newspaper serving the Southside of Dublin for the past three decades, we never cease to be impressed by the strong community spirit and sporting excellence that define this unique part of our capital city. The Southside has produced many famous names from the worlds of television and radio, not to mention its fair share of film and music stars.

Since 1994, Southside People has been happy to give a voice to the unsung heroes of our local communities – our business people, our activists, our volunteers; many of them just ordinary people doing extraordinary things. It’s the same with sport. Some of today’s successful sports stars, national and international, all started out in local clubs, each spurned on

and encouraged by volunteer mentors who believed in them. That’s why we are delighted to launch the Southside People Community and Sports Awards 2019. There will be 10 categories across sport and community in total, with an award for the winner of each one – as nominated by our readers and voted on by our panel of judges. In addition, there will be

an overall Sports Award and Community Award selected from the category winners. Our shortlisted nominees will be invited to a gala awards ceremony in the Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan, on Friday, April 26. We are delighted to announce that popular ‘Liveline’ host, Joe Duffy, will be our MC on the night. This week, we invite you to fill out the nomination form on the following page:

Without the work of volunteers, our communities would be a poorer place. From scouting to sport to youth, disability and senior citizens’ groups, it would be impossible for them to function without the selfless role of individuals who give so generously of their time for the benefit of others. Who is the first person who comes to mind – and why – when you hear the word volunteer? 


There are plenty of young Southsiders out there who are making a difference in their communities, marking themselves out as role models among their peers and as future contributors to society. Is there a young person who helps out in your community who is worthy of a nomination? 


We all know of local businesses that not only provide a valuable service within the community, but also go that extra mile to support their customers. Be it through generous sponsorship or a commercial premises taking pride in its appearance, businesses serve as the commercial heartbeat of our towns and villages. But some really stand out. We want to know which ones. 


Communities and neighbours make up the very fabric of society. Neighbours are the very people who share the place where we live. Good neighbours often make good communities and some go above and beyond in their efforts for the wider community where we often live, work and play. We want to see them recognised for their efforts. We also want to hear from the communities that make up the Southside and which we write about every week. What makes that extra special community? Enter our awards and tell us! 


Schools play such a vital role in our communities, often over and above the area of education. While academic excellence certainly merits a nomination, there are a multitude of other reasons why schools – big or small – should be entered into this category.

SPORTS CATEGORIES Please tick the category of your choice 

Make sure that they get the rewards they deserve by entering them for Club of the Year. 


We have filled thousands of column inches over the years with young sports stars who all went on to achieve great things in their chosen field.

Skoda unveil their new Kamiq ŠKODA is adding a third model to its European SUV portfolio - the new Kamiq. The name Kamiq originates from the language of the Inuit people who live in northern Canada and means something that fits perfectly. The Kamiq perfectly combines the advantages of a sports utility vehicle – such as higher ground clearance and an elevated seat position – with the agility of a compact car. With an emotive design, state-of-the-art assistance and infotainment systems, a generous amount of space and numerous Simply Clever features, the new Kamiq equally fulfils the needs of both families and lifestyleoriented customers. Skoda Auto CEO, Bernhard Maier, said: “By introducing the Kamiq we are completing our successful European SUV portfolio at the lower end. “The Kamiq will captivate new customer

groups for the brand, and it is, therefore, an important component of our model campaign.” The Kamiq offers an attractive overall package and combines SUV typical characteristics such as the elevated seat position and a good view of the road with agile handling, an emotive design, a high level of safety and state-ofthe-art connectivity. Škoda Ireland Head of Marketing & Product, Raymond Leddy, added: “We feel that the Kamiq will serve to add to this success. “There is a huge appetite from buyers in this segment, and the Kamiq will offer great quality and refinement to this rapidly-growing small SUV segment, and we are con-fident, like all our models, that it will be very competitive in terms of price, too. “With the Kamiq we are tapping into a new, younger target group that pursues a modern, adventure-oriented lifestyle.” Apart from a car’s

off-road appearance, a high level of efficiency is essential in this segment. The Interior is dominated by a 9.2-inch free-standing screen providing infotainment and performance information in the driver’s field of view. The Kamiq is equipped with the latest generation of infotainment systems that are always online via the most advanced Connect online services in the range. An optional Virtual Cockpit is also offered. Despite compact exterior dimensions, the Kamiq possesses generous interior space with a boot capacity of 400 litres, which increases to 1,395 litres when the rear seats are folded down. All of the Kamiq engines are direct-injection units with turbochargers. They come with brake energy recovery as well as Stop/ Start technology. The entry-level engine is a three-cylinder 1.0 TSI de-livering 95bhp. A more powerful 1.0

TSI with a power output of115bhp with a 6-speed manual; or a 7-speed DSG is also offered. A four-cylinder 1.5 TSI with

150bhp tops the petrol line-up. A four-cylinder 1.6 TDI diesel engine delivering 115bhp coupled with a 6-speed manual or

a 7-speed DSG automatic gearbox is also part of the offering. The new Kamiq will be available to

order in Ireland from October. Prices are to be confirmed, but indicators suggest they will be below the bestselling Octavia.

Add character with a sash window

ROYAL TREE SURGEONS 40% OFF THIS MONTH 20 years experience

It just takes a little care and attention from skilled craftspeople to bring sash windows back to life, according to Jim Toal of Sash Windows and Restoration by Fairco, and the results more than make the effort worthwhile by not only improving the look of the home, but also increasing the value of the property. Fairco can help choose the best option.

WHILE traditional sash windows are a beautiful addition to any building, unfortunately, age and lack of proper maintenance can see them lose their charm. The good news is, no matter what the problems are – you don't need to give up on your sash windows just yet. According to the experts at Fairco Sash Windows and Restoration, there are just seven things you need to know about renovating sash windows. The first thing to consider is ventilation. Sash windows contain a free and noiseless air conditioning system by design. With both the top and bottom sashes sitting open, cool air is drawn in through the bottom while warm air circulates out the top of the window. This simple system effectively cools your home in summer and will efficiently air out rooms at any time of the year. Next on the list is counterbalance. The working system of a sash window is not visible, so it

you to navigate building regulations when you replace your windows, ensuring the correct level of insulation is met and the windows are safe and correctly fitted. To guarantee you comply with all household insurance requirements, they ensure all windows accessible from the outside are fitted with key operated locks on both sides of the window Opening restrictors, which restrict the ability of children to open windows, can also be fitted to comply with new legislation. Then comes installation, and this is a far easier process than you might imagine. Almost all sash windows are installed from inside the property, meaning that most installations will not require scaffolding and one sash window can be totally draught proofed in about four hours. The most important

is easy to miss its genius. A cord connects the sash to a weight hanging in a hidden chamber within the frame of the window. The weight moves up and down the chamber, and keeps the window sitting in position when open. This system ensures that the window will never drop-close of its own accord. Then there is double glazing to consider. When it comes to sash windows, it is easy to assume the choice is between preserving original fittings and the heat retentive benefits of modern windows. In actual fact, you can enjoy insulation while preserving the original features of your home as sash windows can be sympathetically fitted with double glazing while retaining the features of the original window. Next on the list is compliance. Fairco’s industry experts can help

SOUTHSIDE PEOPLE 06.03.19 thing to consider is draught proofing your sash windows, which makes for a warmer, cosier home and a significant reduction in heating bills. Even if sash windows are draughty or rattling, they can be returned to all their former glory and improved upon. Draughts are mainly caused by badly aligned sashes and a lack of compression between the sashes, both of which are easily addressed by the experts. Historically, sash windows were made to last for generations and with a little effort and expertise, even those that look beyond repair can be returned to their former glory. Woodwork will rot over time, but rotten timber can be removed and replaced in profiles that are the exact replica of the original. Frayed cords are also replaced so the sashes can operate smoothly. It just takes a little care and attention from skilled craftspeople to bring life back to a sash window.

Information Over 360 companies campaign for workers’ get NovaUCD support entitlements AN information campaign has been launched to inform workers of new entitlements that will accompany important new employment legislation coming into effect on March 4. The Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, which was signed by the President on December 25, 2018, delivers on the Programme for Government commitment to address the challenges of increased casualisation of work and to strengthen the regulation of precarious employment. Hailing the act as one of the most significant pieces of employment legislation in a generation, Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection, Regina Doherty, said: “I was very happy to introduce this important new piece of legislation and the information campaign launching this weekend is intended to bring workers up to speed on their new rights. “This new law will profoundly improve the security and predictability of working hours for employees on insecure contracts. “My Department has worked closely with the Workplace Relations Commission (WRC) to provide information about the changes being introduced in the Bill, ahead of its introduction, in order to ensure employers are brought fully up to date on their new obligations. “This information campaign complements this work and will serve as a reminder to all workers concerned that the new protections are now coming into effect.” The Employment (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act provides that: •Employers shall give employees core terms of employment within five days of starting work. •Zero hours contracts will be restricted.

Employment Minister Regina Doherty •There will be minimum payments for people called into work but sent home without work. •A ‘band of hours’ system will be introduced where an employee’s contract does not reflect actual hours worked. •There are strong antipenalisation provisions for employees who invoke their rights under this legislation. •National Minimum Wage rates for younger people and trainees have been simplified.
