there is no guarantee it will be successful. The Council has vowed that development of the library will go ahead, but the other elements of the project including a public plaza space and restoration of Georgian houses have been shelved. The project is overseen by the Parnell Square Foundation, a charitable trust set up to raise funds and finance the project with the support of Dublin City Council and property company, Kennedy Wilson. The funding model needed 55 percent of the project to be funded by private philanthropy through the Foundation but consultants have identified a number of obstacles to a successful private fundraising campaign. Dublin City Council chief executive, Owen Keegan, has written to city councillors to inform them of developments, which he’s described as “most disappointing and unwelcome”. Councillor for CabraGlasnevin, Cllr Gary Gannon (SD), called the news “disappointing but somewhat unsurprising”. “This was an integral development to revitalising the Northside of the city,” he said. “It’s time for this project to be taken in house by Dublin City Council and for Minister

Passenger thanks airport lifesavers THE value of lifesaving defibrillators was highlighted at Dublin Airport recently when a passenger returned to thank the first responders he owes his life to. David McMillan was travelling with his companion Alastair Hamilton to Uganda last October when he began to feel unwell and then collapsed. Dublin Airport police and fire officers trained in CPR and defibrillator use responded immediately using one of the 50 defibrillators located around the airport to administer a series of shocks to revive him. David was then brought to the Mater Hospital where his journey back to recovery began. “I literally survived to tell the tale because of the swift action and professional training of the airport’s first responders Sgt Keith Pedreschi and Paramedic Brendan Conway,” he said. “I’m here today because of them and I want to

sincerely thank them and all those at Dublin Airport who took such good care of me.” David was at Dublin Airport to complete the journey to Uganda that he had intended to take last October and he wanted to thank those who had saved his life. “I know that, had this event occurred while I was travelling to the airport or even while on board the aircraft, the outcome could have been very different,” he said. “It really is wonderful to be here today and have the opportunity to thank my life savers in person.” Dublin Airport’s defibrillator and CPR programme has saved 28 lives since it was first introduced in 2003. Dublin Airport Chief Fire Officer Gerry Keogh said it is hugely rewarding when a passenger walks through the door to thank them for saving his life. “The airport defibrillator programme began in 2003 and since then not

only have we managed to save 28 lives, but we have also raised CPR and defibrillator awareness both in Dublin Airport and with the 100 other companies located on the campus,” he said. “We are delighted to welcome David and Alastair back to Dublin Airport. It’s a testament to the training, professionalism and team work of airport first responders that David is here today, looking fit and well, and in a position to meet those who saved his life.” The emergency response for cardiac arrest training has also been rolled out to 15 taxi drivers that operate at Dublin Airport. Dublin Airport has also funded defibrillators for several local organisation through its €10 million Community Fund. The fund will re-open for submissions on September 1 and application forms are available from www. dublinairport.com/ Alastair Hamilton, Brendan Conway, Dublin Airport Fire Service, David McMillan, Keith Pedreschi, Dublin Airport community-fund.

Rental crisis is a barrier to third level education TONY McCULLAGH Editor Dublin People Group t.mccullagh@dublinpeople.com

THERE was an interesting contribution to the rental crisis debate on Ciara Kelly’s ‘Lunchtime Live’ radio programme on Newstalk last week. President of DCU Students’ Union, Christine Farrell, was on the show to elaborate on her earlier tweet criticising accommodation costs. She highlighted the fact that one provider was asking students for a weekly rent of €330 for a private studio flat. ‘Cluster rooms’ – whatever they are – were available from €230 per week.

The fact that these units were being specifically aimed at students was difficult to comprehend. Even a professional worker on a modest wage would find it difficult to find over €17,000 to pay the annual rent. At €1,400 per month, it would be the equivalent of a mortgage payment on a fairly substantial family home. The reality is that most students are not from wealthy backgrounds and are still heavily reliant on financial support from their parents. Many have part-time jobs to help fund their day to day living expenses or enjoy the social life that comes with being a student. In the final year of a course, it can be difficult to balance working in a restaurant, bar or shop with achieving academic success in exams. For some of these young people, financial stress and pressure to study

Finding suitable student accommodation is challenging. PHOTO: BIGSTOCK can negatively impact on their mental health. While the rental crisis is a national one, it is most acutely felt in Dublin. There are stories of students enduring hellish commutes to attend college in Dublin as renting is simply not an option for them. Others are forced to live in substandard, crowded accommodation during the academic year. In recent decades, so much progress has been made in removing traditional barriers to third level

education. There are excellent access programmes to encourage people from socially deprived communities to attend college. Families on lower incomes can avail of grants to avoid having to pay the annual €3,000 registration fees. Incredible opportunities await those who wish to attend college as a mature student. There are also incentives for people with disabilities to enjoy full access to third level education. More’s the pity that Ireland’s

shameful accommodation crisis could deter people from availing of the wealth of opportunities that education can bring. On so many levels, Ireland’s economic recovery is being eclipsed by a housing crisis that makes us feel so much poorer than we should. Record employment levels mean nothing if the average worker can’t afford to rent or qualify for a mortgage. And if people with jobs feel the pinch, just imagine what it’s like to be a student.

Finglas film picks up award EFFORT Project in Finglas has been awarded the runner up prize in the Junior Category at the Irish Cancer Society X-HALE Youth Awards 2019. The group scooped the award for its short animated film ‘Yup the Boyz’ which was showcased at a recent event in the Helix Theatre in DCU. Fellow Dublin groups, Blanchardstown

Community Training Centre, Children4WorldChildren CLG, Club Orgras Léim an Bhradáin, North Great George’s Street Youthreach, Sallynoggin Youthreach, South Area Youth Service and TravAct Youth Northside also submitted entries to this year’s film competition. Over 400 young people from 56 youth and community groups

across 22 counties showcased their antitobacco films in the Helix. The groups wrote, directed and starred in their own films and worked hard to promote them through events in their communities. Joanne Vance, Community Programmes Manager with the Irish Cancer Society, praised the youngsters from Finglas for their prizewinning entry. “X-HALE is going from strength to strength and this year has seen a record amount of film entries to the competition,” she said. “I want to congratulate EFFORT Project Finglas who submitted a fantastic, thoughtprovoking film. We are very proud of all the young people and their youth organisations who showcased their films at our national event and promoted their work in

their communities. “While smoking rates have declined in recent years, there is a still huge amount of work to do to prevent young people from taking up smoking and supporting those who do, to quit. “That is why it is so inspiring to see young people coming together to campaign on against tobacco at local, national and European level. Ultimately, we want to see this leading to a completely smoke-free generation.” This is the ninth year of the X-HALE programme, a youth smoking prevention initiative of the Irish Cancer Society. The programme aims to de-normalise smoking and encourage young people to drive the movement towards a tobacco free generation. For further information and to watch the entries visit www.cancer.ie/ xhale.

Free eye tests for Chernobyl youngsters A GROUP of young adults from the Vesnova Orphanage in Belarus were invited to Specsavers in Santry recently to have their eyes tested by the store’s expert optical team. The group consisted of three young adults - Misha, Vova and Aliazsandr - who all received a full sight test with professional opticians at Specsavers Santry. The trio were part of a group brought to

Ireland by Adi Roche's Chernobyl Children International charity. “The volunteers at Adi Roche's Chernobyl Children International do fantastic work with the groups each year,” said store manager Paul O’Boyle. “Regular eye checks are a very important part of their overall healthcare routine, so we jumped at the chance to provide these three young adults with this service that

is unfortunately not available to them at home.” Chernobyl Children International (CCI) was founded by Adi Roche in 1991 to alleviate suffering and protect current and future generations in the Chernobyl regions affected by the Chernobyl disaster. In the last 28 years, over 25,000 children have visited Ireland on holiday and have received optical, dental and medical treatment.

Dublin Port plan is lodged DUBLIN Port Company is lodging an application with An Bord Pleanála for permission for projects in the second stage of its masterplan. The MP2 Project is the second major capital development project from the Port’s Masterplan 2040. It follows consultation with stakeholders, including the local community, customers, State agencies, Government departments and other public bodies. Public information days were held in local communities last week with details of the proposed development plans on view. The MP2 Project involves an application for a 15-year permission for phased development works within existing port lands in the north eastern part of the port estate. Key elements of the plan include a roll-on roll-off jetty for ferries up to 240m-long,

lengthening an existing berth for container ships, redeveloping an oil berth to enable it to handle container traffic, the consolidation of passenger terminal buildings and re-orienting another existing berth.   The application for permission, the Environmental Impact Assessment Report and the Natura Impact Statement, is available to inspect during public opening hours for seven weeks from July 19 at: The Offices of An Bord Pleanála 64 Marlborough Street, Dublin 1; The Offices of Dublin City Council, Civic Offices, Woodquay, Dublin 8; and The Offices of Dublin Port Company, Port Centre, Dublin Port, Alexandra Road, Dublin 1.  The application may also be viewed/ downloaded from the project website: www. dublinportmp2.ie In the event that permission is granted

for the MP2 Project, a community gain initiative is also proposed as part of the application. This would see Dublin Port Company establish a €1 million trust fund for Dublin City Council to develop a city farm in the vicinity of the Port, intended to enhance the local community and benefit the wider city through educational, volunteering and collaboration opportunities. In addition, Dublin Port Company would establish a €1 million trust fund for St Joseph’s Co-Ed Primary School in East Wall, intended to benefit the school community closest to the development site. The MP2 Project also includes provision for a publicly accessible Heritage Zone at the eastern end of the Port. This will include a new structure or ‘Marker’ incorporating the original lighthouse bell and lantern from the pier

Green flags for Northside parks A NUMBER of Northside parks and green spaces have received Green Flag awards for 2019. A total of 60 Irish parks and gardens were presented with the awards, which recognise and encourage good quality parks and green spaces that are managed in environmentally sustainable ways. Poppintree Park and Blessington Street Park were amongst five Dublin City Council parks to

receive awards while Millennium Park and Santry Demesne, which are managed by Fingal County Council, were also awarded Green Flags. Mayor of Fingal Cllr Eoghan O’Brien said he was immensely proud that five parks across Fingal were awarded the prestigious Green Flag. “It is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the council staff who ensure that the parks continue to be wonderful

amenities for everyone who live and visit the County,” he added. “The very fact that the parks are located right across Fingal shows the scale of the task involved in maintaining the demesnes and it is great to see them receive this deserved recognition.” Grangegorman Military Cemetery and Phoenix Park were amongst nine Office of Public Works (OPW) sites also awarded a Green Flag for 2019.

The Phoenix Park at 707 hectares is one of the largest enclosed recreational spaces within any European capital city. The Park was established in 1662 as a Royal Deer Park by James Butler, Duke of Ormond, on behalf of King Charles II and is 11km in length and has 22kms of roads. In addition to the Green Flag award, Ashtown Walled Garden in Phoenix Park won the overall ‘Walled Garden Category’

The Phoenix Park was awarded a Green Flag for 2019.

in the 2019 Green Flag for Parks Pollinator Project Award. Ireland’s largest Military Cemetery, Grangegorman Military Cemetery, was opened in 1876 to serve as a graveyard for the soldiers and their families, of what was then Marlborough Barracks (now McKee Barracks). It’s an oasis of peace and tranquillity, a near picture perfect Victorian garden cemetery. The mature tree collection of over 26

species in this small site adds to its solemn and reflective atmosphere. The graveyard contains 600 military burials, including a memorial to the Unknown Soldier and 140 service men that lost their lives with the sinking of the RMS Leinster mail boat off the coast of Dublin. Minister of State for the OPW, Kevin ‘Boxer’ Moran, said he was delighted to see that the OPW had been awarded the flags.

“I particularly would like to congratulate all the OPW staff whose dedicated work and commitment to each property has contributed towards these Awards,” he added. “The OPW places great importance on the sustainable management and conservation of the State’s heritage sites, and the Green Flag awards scheme is a wonderful way of recognising and celebrating these high standards.”

Poppintree Park was one of Dublin CIty Council’s award winning parks.

Checking a childcare facility LAST week’s ‘RTÉ Investigates’ documentary on a Northside childcare facility has caused concern for parents, and many have questions about their own children’s care. To address some of the issues raised in the programme, Karen Clince from Castleknock, who is CEO and founder of Tigers Childcare, has come up with some timely advice to help parents assess their own children’s care facilities. “A good quality childcare setting will understand that we are caring for your most prized possession and will treat you accordingly,” says Karen. “You should be encouraged to ask questions until you feel comfortable with its staff and its practices. Knowledge can lead to empowerment in making the right choice for your children.” So what questions should parents ask and what are potential red flags? Let’s take a look. WHO IS MY CHILD’S CARER AND WHAT IS THEIR QUALIFICATION? You should know at every stage who is caring for your child and their qualification and experience WHO IS MY CHILD’S KEY WORKER?

Your child should have the same key worker for prolonged periods. As a child develops they need to build strong relationships with key staff in order for emotional development to be successful. HOW OFTEN WILL I BE ABLE TO GET FEEDBACK ON MY CHILD AND HIS OR HER DEVELOPMENT? You should have constant feedback on your child - both formal and informal.   WHAT IS MY CHILD’S INDIVIDUAL CARE PLAN? Although children are in group care, the curriculum and plan for your child should be unique to them. The planning of your child's development should also be visible and open to you.

will help you become accustomed to the general feel or ethos of a service. CAN I VISIT ANY TIME I LIKE? There should be an open-door policy where you can enter a setting at any stage.   CAN I SEE THE PLAY ITEMS FOR MY CHILD? Play should always be central to your child's day. The classroom should contain items at the child's level and there should be an abundance of materials in good working order.   IS THERE A RELAXATION AREA? There should be areas in a room for relaxation as well as play.   DO YOU USE BOUNCERS AND WHAT ARE THEY USED FOR? In most good facilities there are no bouncers.

Ballymun declares war on litter BALLYMUN locals turned out in force last week to voice their determination to rid the area’s reputation as a litter blackspot. The latest Irish Business Against Litter (IBAL) report published in June placed Ballymun last in a list of 40 areas and declared Ballymun to be a ‘litter blackspot’ – the first time the grade has been used in the report in three

years. The car park at Ballymun Shopping Centre was described as “a complete eye-sore right in the centre of Ballymun” while Balbutcher Lane wasn’t just littered but subject to illegal dumping, as was Shangan Road. The report came as a blow to locals, many of whom work tirelessly to keep the area clean. However, some parts of

Ballymun suffer from illegal dumping with a tiny minority undoing the good work carried out by volunteers. Last week almost 100 people turned up to a packed public meeting determined to improve the area’s image. The meeting was organised jointly by Dublin City Council and The Ballymun Tidy Towns Committee.

“It was great to see so many local people coming together to respond to the IBAL report”, said local TD Róisín Shortall, who attended the meeting. “People identified the many positive improvements in the area but they also identified the black spots and everyone was agreed on the urgent need to tackle these. “Dumping is an on-going problem and Dublin City

Northside volunteer drivers sought THE Irish Cancer Society has put an urgent call out for volunteer drivers in Dublin to transport patients to their chemotherapy appointments.   The Society has seen a nationwide increase of almost one third in the first few months of this year, with an increase of 21 percent in patient bookings across Dublin. Gail Flinter, Patient Travel and Financial Support Manager with

the Irish Cancer Society, said: “We have seen a huge increase in patient referrals across the Dublin area. “To cope with this demand, it is essential that we recruit more volunteers to transport patients to their chemotherapy appointments. “I would appeal to anyone in the Dublin area who has a couple of week days free a month to get in touch.”

Michael Doyle, a volunteer driver from Dublin, said: “When I was diagnosed with cancer, and particularly when I was going through treatment, I realised how important it was to have good support around you. “When I retired I wanted to give something back and volunteering for the driver service a couple of days a month was a no brainer for me.” The Volunteer Driver Service is available to

cancer patients who are undergoing chemotherapy in Beaumont, the Mater Hospital, Connolly Hospital, Tallaght University Hospital, St Vincent’s and St James’s. If you would like to volunteer, or if you are a patient who would like more information, please contact Gail or Laura on the team on 01-2310566 (Gail) or 01 2310594 (Laura), email transport@ irishcancer.ie or visit www.cancer.ie

Council was urged to take stronger action against the offenders. “Some areas look fantastic thanks to the work of residents groups while other areas could do with a lot more help.” There will be a follow-up meeting on September 17 when an action plan will be agreed to

tackle littering and to take steps to improve the appearance and environment of local estates. “Ballymun people are determined to ensure that this negative is turned into a positive, and that next year Ballymun will go up the IBAL ratings,” added Deputy Shortall. Róisín Shortall TD

Bay City Rollers star to bring Rollermania to Leopardstown

Les McKeown is bringing back all the thrill and excitement of Rollermania.

LES McKeown from Bay City Rollers is bringing all the thrill and excitement of Rollermania to the August 8 Bulmer’s Live at Leopardstown night. Les McKeown was part of what has been described as the classic line-up of the band and in late 1973, recorded lead vocals on ‘Remember (Sha-La-La-La)’. By early 1975, the band was well on the way to achieving global success. Beginning with ‘Remember’, the Rollers’ popularity exploded, and they released a string of hits on the UK chart. Following in succession were ‘Shang-a-Lang’, ‘Summerlove Sensation’ and ‘All of Me Loves All of You’. By early 1975, they were one of the biggest-selling acts in the UK. The successful ‘75 UK tour prompted newspaper

headlines about the rise of ‘Rollermania’ (a take-off on Beatlemania a decade before). The Rollers were the subject of a 20-week UK television series, Shang-a-Lang. A cover of the Four Seasons’ ‘Bye, Bye, Baby’ went to number one in the UK for six weeks in March and April 1975. Performing all the original hits including ‘Bye Bye Baby’, ‘Shanga-Lang’, ‘Remember’, 'Summerlove Sensation' and ‘Give A Little Love' plus many many more, Les also introduces new songs from their latest album Lost Songs. Les McKeown’s Bay City Rollers bring a new energy to all the classic hits and play Bulmer’s Live at Leopardstown on Thursday, August 8. For tickets and hospitality options - go to www. leopardstown.com

Dublin, February 1975, Rollermania had taken over the city and we couldn’t go anywhere, concerts had to be cut short due to the mania that surrounded us that year. 2. Favourite place to visit in Dublin? I’m always finding new places to visit when I am in Dublin, I don’t have one particular place to say “it’s my favourite”.

4. First album you bought and last album you bought? The first album was Pink Floyd - ‘Meddle’ and the last album was Radiohead ‘The Bends’. 5. Who are your influences? The people who influenced me the most were my parents. 6. What three things are on your rider? Chilled water, fresh sandwiches, tea and coffee facilities.

Brian May said: “This is a stunning state-of-the art new-look production, but of course the original story is now more relevant than ever. “We’re confident fans will love revisiting the world’s first true Rock Theatrical, and a whole new generation will now discover the vibe.” Featuring 24 of Queen’s biggest hits and Ben Elton’s hilarious futuristic Rodrigo y Gabriela have announced a new Autumn tour that will include the comedy writing, We Will Olympia Theatre on September 19.

Rock You boasts the scale and spectacle that marked the band’s legendary live performances. This global phenomenon will continue to be one of the most spectacular musicals to tour the United Kingdom and Ireland. The show has seen unprecedented success in theatres and arenas around the world. The nine month tour will see the rock theatrical performed in front of thousands of rock fans. Since 2002 over 15 million theatregoers in 17 countries have been thrilled by We Will Rock You’s awe-inspiring production. Before closing its glorious 12-year run at London’s Dominion Theatre, the show was performed an astonishing 4,600 times. The touring production of We Will Rock You reaches theatres carrying with it an impressive legacy. When it first became news that one of Britain’s most phenomenally successful comedy writers Ben Elton was teaming up

with legends of rock, Queen, for a musical there was much speculation on what such a unique collaboration would turn out. So impressed after attending the original workshop, screen icon Robert De Niro and his company Tribeca came on board as American partners. De Niro continues to support the show, and even made a special visit to London in 2013 to help celebrate the

10th anniversary in style. The announcement of the We Will Rock You UK & Ireland tour follows the smash hit release of the hugely anticipated Queen biopic ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. The Oscar nominated film, celebrating the career of one of the greatest ever rock bands, has wowed Queen fans. We Will Rock You is in the Dublin Bord Gais Theatre from October 28 to November 2.

Dublin’s emerging hip-hop scene is aiming to go global DUBLIN’S hip-hop artists are setting their sights on the world domination following the international recognition of some breakthrough artists. TOMMY HICKEY takes a look at how the Dublin rap scene has begun to blossom. In 2017, hip hop overtook pop as America’s most popular genre. In Ireland it sits in fifth place, behind pop, rock, dance and soul. However, it is the fastest growing genre among young people and will surely climb up that list soon. With the internet making the rap world more accessible, more and more Irish rappers are putting their music out there. For Seán Ó Muirgheasa, Dun Laoghaire native and rapper with the Róg Poets group, rap’s explicit nature is where its appeal to the masses lie. “I grew up with a distrust of the system we live in,” he explains. “When I heard rappers speak so critically about modern society, I felt vindicated. They say the things most people only think.” Seán says rap offers a platform to discuss issues that other genres don’t. “My music ranges from observation on politics, society, history, basically the whole world around me,” says Sean. “Though with the Róg Poets the focus is more on the rhythm and the live music experience rather than any particular message.” The feeling of discontent is the only constant in a genre which has been transformed so many times since emerging in the US in the late 1970s. While the direction of the anger is always changing, from politicians to paparazzi to groupies, it remains nonetheless. Coolock rapper Ludacris and his crew Working Class Records held the torch for Irish hip hop through the noughties and into the early teens but never gained much commercial success. Nowadays artists don’t need record labels to gain a platform. This has opened the door to international success for some Irish

Seán Ó Muirgheasa, Dun Laoghaire native and rapper with the Róg Poets. rappers. Versatile, a duo from Ringsend and Sandymount, have been putting up music videos for the last six years. In 2015, their video ‘Mad-Scene’ went viral, reaching over two million views. They rap in their own, distinctly Dublin, accents. Most of their songs now hit over a million views and they have toured all over the UK. Rejjie Snow from Drumcondra took Irish rap to the next level. His debut EP ‘Rejovich’, released in 2013, topped the i-tunes hip hop chart ahead of releases from acclaimed stars such as Kanye West and J Cole. He is now signed to Birdman’s ‘300 Entertainment’ label and is enjoying a highly successful career. Rejjie Snow raps in an American accent and that’s where he draws most of his fanbase. Versatile draw most of their followers from their exceptionally hilarious videos. Dubliner Kojaque is arguably the only out and

out hip-hop act to have a considerable following at home and abroad. His collective Soft Boy Records have been making steady ground thanks to their striking visuals coupled with biting lyrics. His approach to rap reflects the genre’s changing nature. His debut album, ‘Deli Daydreams’, consisted of his private reflections while working behind the deli at Centra. His songs ‘White Noise’ and ‘Eviction Notice’ tackle the many social problems we see in Dublin today. These breakthrough artists did the hard work in carving out a space for Irish hip-hop. Finglas duo Ink and Daf have gained considerable traction from their take on Chicago Drill music while Festivals like Beatyard and Longitude are giving more stage time to our native MCs. Although an RTE hip hop station is still a long way away, Irish hip hop will continue to go from strength to strength. Versatile, a duo from Ringsend and Sandymount.

Top tips for the Canary Islands LAST month we took a look at some great things to do on the Canary Islands. The isles are a favourite hotspot with Irish holidaymakers, which is hardly surprising given their quality beaches, superb year-round weather conditions and otherworldly landscapes. Following on from last month’s article, here are a few more things you should check out during your next visit.

BOOK OF THE WEEK

The City in Flames About The Author AFTER a successful career as a television writer and producer, working on such series as A Touch of Frost, Midsomer Murders and Between the Lines, Michael Russell decided to write what he had always wanted to: books. The City in Flames is the fifth of his Stefan Gillespie stories of historical crime fiction, taking a sideways look at the Second World War through Irish eyes. Three of the novels have been shortlisted for Crime Writers' Association awards. The books explore some unexpected corners of the war, such as Danzig, New York, Franco’s Spain, and the lives of the small group of Irish people who lived in Berlin through the conflict. But at the heart of the stories is the Dublin of the 1930s and 40s and the countryside of Wicklow. Michael lives in West Wicklow with his family, not a million miles from Stefan Gil-lespie’s family farm. He was born in England and has lived in Ireland for almost 25 years. The City in Flames by Michael Russell is published by Constable.

IT IS 1940. The Battle of Britain is ending. A woman lands on the Scottish coast from a German flying boat and goes to ground, hunted by British Intelligence. In Ireland, Detective Inspector Stefan Gillespie has been suspended from a job in Garda Special Branch that has already brought him very close to a war neutral Ireland supposedly has no part in. Now he is under investigation for reasons he won't explain, working on his father's farm in Wicklow, with the suspicion of betraying his country hanging over his head. A puzzling death in the Wicklow Mountains opens up dark events in the past for his father, David, but Stefan is reluctant to get involved. He has enough on his plate. He seems to be waiting for something. But his father is determined to investigate a crime no one else wants to know about. David Gillespie is convinced something is being covered up and there is an old debt that must be repaid. Then very suddenly, Stefan leaves, with no explanation of where he

New book makes alien claims FROM the American southwest to the pampas of Argentina, from the stark beauty of rural New Zealand to the pastures of southern Ireland and Britain, something insidious stalks farm livestock, harvesting specific organs. Some of these cases have involved the sighting of unknown aerial objects. These craft have been observed abducting animals and the unfortunate beasts’ carcasses have later been found to have had advanced surgical procedures performed upon them. The core of this book focuses on a farm where many hundreds of sheep have been subjected to the cold and calculated attentions of a technically advanced intelligence, for purposes unknown. These unwanted intrusions have also involved similarly horrific processes being visited upon domestic pets around the world.

The authors illustrate that this bone-chilling phenomenon has now appeared in its most sinister manifestation possible: it has emerged from the boundaries of the animal kingdom and materialised in the human realm… Carl Nally and Dermot Butler are the co-founders of UPRI (UAP and Paranormal Research Ireland). They were both born in Dublin and have over two decades of involvement in the research and investigation of UAPs and the paranormal. This is their third book, following ‘Conspiracy of Silence: UFOs in Ireland’ and ‘States of Denial: The Tuskar Rock Incident and Other Mysteries’.

has gone or why. But even in rural Ireland, rumours of assassination and Nazi spies fill the air, leaving Stefan's father to wonder whether his son is in terrible danger. Meanwhile, Stefan is in London, working undercover in a pub for Irish Military Intelligence: The Bedford Arms in Camden, at the heart of London’s Irish community. Run by an alcoholic, bankrupt landlord, it's a wartime refuge for the Irish in London. And while the city shakes under the Blitz, Stefan finds himself in an unlooked-for love affair with Vera Kennedy, an Irishwoman who has her own secrets to hide. But behind closed doors, a different war is being fought. The drunken landlord is not as witless as he seems, and Stefan's mission is under perilous threat, as he comes face to face with the pub’s blackmarket dealings and a blackmailing policeman. When Vera disappears, after heavy bombing in Camden, Stefan discovers that the Nazis are far closer to Camden than he thought. And British Intelligence isn’t far behind.

A GOOD barbecue can provide some of the best craic during the summer months and we certainly don’t need much encouragement to fire up the grill and text out the invites. As soon as there’s a break in the clouds we’re dreaming about lazing around the garden in blazing sunshine with a few pals while the burgers and sausages gently sizzle away in the background. The problem is we don’t get enough practice here in Ireland and sometimes we end up scoffing down half-cooked or burnt-to-a-crisp clumps of meat under the back door porch during a downpour. It’s all down to planning and preparation. It might feel like a great idea to nip down to the local convenience store as soon as the sun starts shining but the best barbies are well thought out affairs, with a few allowances made for the weather. Follow these tips and you won’t go far wrong. • Do as much preparation as you can the day before your barbecue. Make the marinades and marinate the meat or poultry. Make the side dishes and prepare a simple dessert that just needs finishing off on the day. • Pick your BBQ spot carefully. Avoid windy locations and allow plenty of space around the barbecue. Remember to keep the grill away from plants, fences or sheds that may scorch or catch light. • Have everything to hand when barbecuing. Place all the things you’ll be using on a side table

Invest in a cool box for convenience. • It’s essential to properly marinate the meat, fish, or poultry before it hits the grill. Marinades ensure flavour and help with tenderising. Give them at least 20 minutes to start working and for some foods like red meats, pork or poultry, you may want to marinate overnight. • Fish requires only about 20-30 minutes marinating time before cooking because the acid in the marinade will ‘cook’ the fish if left on overnight. • Remove meat and poultry from the fridge an hour before cooking and leave covered in a cool kitchen or garage until required. This will help bring the food back to an ambient temperature, and will result in a more succulent cooked result rather than a charred, dried offering. • Cook in foil. It’s ideal for cooking foods that can easily fall apart, stick or burn, like fish. Tear off a sheet of foil, brush with oil, add the fish fillet skin side down, salt and pepper, a squeeze of lemon and a splash of white wine. Seal it by folding together the corners and then barbecue for about three minutes on each side. • Pork, sausages, burgers and chicken in particular, must always be cooked through to the centre. It might look cooked on the outside but can still be raw in the middle. Check by piercing the thickest part with the point of a sharp knife. If the juices run clear then the meat is ready. Any sign of pink juices and it needs more time. • Compliment your meal with side dishes. Baked potatoes are an easy-to-prepare favourite as are baby potatoes in herbs and butter. • Impress guests with a super salad. Depending on your taste, ingredients such as blue cheese, goat’s cheese, avocado, ginger, beetroot, olives, red onion, fresh herbs, pasta, broccoli, crispy bacon, nuts, parmesan and fruits can be used as well as the more traditional lettuce, tomato, onion and cucumber. • Clean charcoal

a new job, co-workers will cut you some slack. They assume you don't know how everything works, so use this time to ask questions. Bring a pad and write down answers to make sure it sinks in. A good tip is to hold queries until the end of the day as they are often answered in the normal course of things. This also stops you butting in with a question every five minutes and coming across as though you aren’t grasping things. Familiarise yourself with new systems and work practices, ask pertinent questions, and look for training early on, because whereas people are happy

to help when you first join the company, if you are asking what your system login is after two months their patience may begin to wear thin! It’s important to introduce yourself around in a new organisation. Get to know who does what, and who makes the decisions. Knowing the key players allows you to do your job better. Try to avoid getting sucked in to gossip about co-workers. Be polite to those who are spreading it, but take people as you find them. This is an opportunity to progress in a new company, so don't make enemies when you don't need to.

Your new job isn’t something guaranteed for life. During the early days of a new job, try to have an input in meetings and during work. Come up with suggestions and insights that mark you out as someone who is sharp, confident and who knows their stuff. Be careful not to come across as a know-it-all, or to impose yourself too aggressively, and remember not to say things like: “this is not how we used to do things in my old job�. You aren't

in Kansas now! People are most interested in what works in the here and now and for the future. Finally, don’t rest on your laurels. It should be said, that probation periods are two-way streets (allowing the company to assess you, but also allowing you to see if the job is really what you want), but once you decide you want the job, don't let your performance drop after you are confirmed as a

permanent employee. Keep contributing and mark yourself out as one to be watched. A new job is a new leaf. Be confident, make yourself invaluable and you might find opportunities present themselves for progression and salary increases. • Cormac Spencer is a Recruitment Consultant/ Director at Link Personnel Services.

Airport installs automatic aircraft parking system DUBLIN Airport is installing an automatic visual docking guidance system (AVDGS) on all aircraft contact parking stands. AVDGS is an electronic display above aircraft parking stands which provides real time information to pilots as they are parking aircraft on arrival or pushing back for departure. The new system has an added safety feature with infrared highdefinition camera scans the aircraft parking area for any possible objects that could affect the safety of the arriving or departing aircraft. This camera detects large objects on the ground like equipment or baggage which may block the stand and cause knock-on delays. This information means that airline baggage and ground handlers can get to the aircraft quicker to ensure faster aircraft turn-around thereby helping to reduce potential times reducing delays for the airline and its passengers. It also means that the aircraft and its support vehicles are not running engines unnecessarily which in turn can help reduce carbon emissions from the airfield. AVDGS also enhances the role of

The marshal inputs key information such as the aircraft type and other flight data into the AVDGS, which automatically gauges aircraft clearances, stopping distances and records the exact on and off stand times. These recorded times

feed directly in to the Airport’s Collaborative Decision Making (A-CDM) system. A-CDM focuses on aircraft turnaround times and predeparture sequencing processes to boost air traffic flow and operational efficiency of all airport operators by reducing delays and increasing the predictability of events.

Nissan unveils new green technology for EV motorists NISSAN has called on Irish businesses to reassess their green credentials after unveiling new technology which enables the drivers of electric vehicles (EVs) to use their cars to power their businesses and homes and to feed energy back to the power grid. The innovative Nissan X-Storage technology is a game-changer for Irish businesses who want to reduce their carbon footprint, to become more sustainable and to significantly reduce their operating costs by running a fleet of electric vehicles. Nissan is already using the new technology together with sustainable solar energy to power its new Dublin headquarters at Park West Business Park which were officially opened by the Minister for Communications, Climate

Action and Environment, Richard Bruton. The Nissan X-Storage system which was unveiled at Nissan’s newly refurbished headquarters can also draw energy from the Nissan LEAF electric vehicles parked outside, thanks to their built-in bidirectional charging capacity which makes it possible to supply the energy stored in the car’s battery back to the threestorey building. Nissan is also driving Ireland’s green revolution by expanding its own fleet of electric vehicles. The Nissan LEAF and Nissan ENV200 now account for 60 per cent of the cars that it has on the road. A total of 16 charging points for EV drivers are currently being installed at its new headquarters. New LED lighting has been fitted to reduce

the electrical load on the newly refurbished building. Smart controls have also been installed to ensure that the building is powered down at night and internal bicycle storage facilities have also been provided for employees. Speaking at the opening of Nissan’s new headquarters, James McCarthy, CEO of Nissan Ireland said that it was incumbent on the entire business community in Ireland and all Government departments to start auditing their carbon footprint and to take the necessary steps to reduce it. “Businesses and the Government need to evaluate their environmental credentials including looking at their fleet and company car policies to determine whether they are part of

the problem or part of the solution,” Mr McCarthy said. “In addition to the clear environmental benefits from doing so, there can also be significant financial savings for businesses bottom line in the form of Accelerated Capital Allowance benefits, 0 per cent BIK and vehicle running costs savings.” Mr McCarthy called on Government to play its part by reviewing the national vehicle fleet funded by the Exchequer, most particularly the “grey” mileage fleet. He also called for a commitment now to sign up to the Government Fleet Declaration first mooted in 2016 at the Marrakesh Climate Change Conference which recommended 20 per cent of all Exchequer funded fleets should be electric vehicles.

“At Nissan we are absolutely committed to becoming a more sustainable business and to continuing to reduce our carbon footprint and to helping businesses and householders to follow our lead,” Mr McCarthy

added. “Nissan is changing how cars are integrated into society. Nissan LEAF drivers can now use their zero emissions electric cars for much more than just driving. “We have made it

possible for them to easily connect their cars with energy systems to charge their batteries, to power their homes and businesses or even feed energy back to power grids and earn energy credits,” he added.

26 Happenings

A few things worth checking out this week

NORTHSIDE PEOPLE WEST 31.07.19

GLASNEVIN CEMETERY MUSEUM It’s on your bucket list, right? SUMMER SOUNDS

The newly refurbished Victorian bandstand on Bray Seafront is playing host to a series of free concerts that feature big band performances from the Dublin Airport Police & Fire Service Band, Bray Concert Band, Lourdes Brass Band and plenty more. This Sunday, August 4, visitors can enjoy music from the Stedfast Band from 2.30pm.   

CITY CARNIVAL

Did you know that the first week of August is ‘International Clown Week'? No, we didn’t either, but to celebrate, the final event of Summer Sundays on College Green on August 4 will be City Carnival. The performance spaces will see appearances from multi-talented artistes, while the side show will feature an Antique Carousel, Facepainters, Stiltwalkers, Jugglers and Mime Artists. The event this Sunday will also host workshops to give families the chance to try out some basic Circus Skills.

A seemingly unlikely place to visit this summer, but Glasnevin Cemetery is a must and if it isn’t on your bucket list now, it will be!

OPERA IN THE OPEN

Opened in 1832, Glasnevin is Ireland’s national cemetery located only 2.5km from Dublin’s bustling city centre. Over 1.6 million people have been laid to rest in this stunning Victorian Garden Cemetery. Glasnevin Cemetery Museum offers a window into Irish history and the guided tours are filled with enjoyable anecdotes and wry stories that bring it to life.

WAG ‘N’ WALK

Village Vets are hosting a charity dog walk to raise vital funds for My Canine Companion autism service dogs. The 5km sponsored Wag ‘n’ Walk will take place in The Phoenix Park on Sunday, August 4 at 11am. The meeting place is the Dublin Zoo car park. The walk will loop through much of the Phoenix Park's beautiful scenery, hopefully on one of the nicest days of the year! Participants are asked to make a suggested donation of €10, which will go straight to My Canine Companion. Each dog will also receive a free bandana and dog treats upon arrival. To find out more or to register visit https://rebrand. ly/WAGNWALK

GAA O’CONNELL TOWER PROMOTION ATTENTION ALL GAA FANS! To celebrate the 2019 Football, Hurling and Camogie finals, Glasnevin Cemetery Museum is offering visitors wearing their county’s GAA jersey, HALF PRICE admission to climb the O’Connell Tower. This special offer will be available at the weekends during quarter final, semi-final and final matches being played in the Senior Men’s and Women’s GAA Football, Hurling and Camogie matches. This is the perfect opportunity to explore the wonders of the city and also support your beloved county. Glasnevin Cemetery Museum is only a 10 minute drive or a 30 minute walk from Croke Park, so this would be the perfect pre- or post-match outing. Those who climb to the top of the tower can appreciate breath-taking views of the sprawling cemetery beneath, Dublin, Wicklow, Meath and the surrounding areas.

CAR BOOT SALE

Malahide Car Boot Sale will take place on August 3 at St Andrew’s National School car park. Time: 9am-3pm. Gates will open at 8am for sellers. Cost: pre-booking €15 per car. Text your name and car registration number to Alan on 089-4784918, or pay €20 on the day. There is no entrance fee for buyers. Refreshments can be purchased. This is a fundraiser for St Doulagh’s Church restoration.

This discount applies to those wearing GAA county jerseys only. However, it also applies to those wearing jerseys of teams who have already been knocked out – so you’ll have another chance to showcase your home team’s jersey before the end of the summer! Did you know that Michael Cusack,

Fancy an idyllic picnic in the park with homegrown operatic voices or a work lunch out of a stuffy office? Opera In The Open is taking place every Thursday in August between 1pm and 2pm in the Amphitheatre, Wood Quay. The colourful and dramatic performances are free to attend. It begins on Thursday, August 1 with Mozart’s masterful ‘The Impresario’. Keep up to date with the season on the Opera in the Open Facebook.

the founder of the GAA is buried in Glasnevin Cemetery?
