STUDENTS from Scoil Chaitríona, St Mobhi Rd, Glasnevin, were at the Mansion House last week to help celebrate the growth and development of the Irish language online. The youngsters were guests of Lord Mayor Nial Ring for Lá na Meán Sóisialta (Social Media Day), which helps promote the Irish language on the internet. There are around 6,700 languages spoken online, with Irish among the top 100 most used and on March 6 hundreds joined in the celebration of our national language at the Mansion House using the hashtag #LNMS19. “We are delighted to host this event in The Mansion House,” the Lord Mayor said. “The Irish language is always welcomed here and across the city.

“The problem is that there is too much money involved to remove all the horses,” said Kenny. “It would cost a huge amount of money to round all those horses up.” “If they actually made some sort of plan and completed it properly it could be cheaper.

But if I say there are loose horses they never go up.” A spokesperson for Dublin City Council said: “Every report of an abandoned horse/horses is responded to by Dublin City Council through our contractor.” According to the Dublin City Council website, the cost of an owner reclaiming a horse is €700 per horse. The DSPCA also gets

regularly called out to check on the welfare and conditions of horses in Dublin. “Many horses are seized or surrendered by the owners to be rehomed by the DSPCA,” said a spokesperson for the DSPCA. “There are too many horses in Dublin and it is believed that through education the numbers can be reduced and the level of care and welfare will increase benefitting the animals and people in general,” the spokesperson added. My Lovely Horse Rescue is a voluntary organisation that started up around

eight years ago. They can only rescue a horse if it is on public land because they are not authorised officers. Kenny said abandoned horses are particularly common in Finglas, Darndale, Clondalkin, Ballyfermot, Tallaght, Bluebell. “The issue is just really ongoing and the authorities just need to sit up and listen to the likes of My Lovely Horse Rescue who are constantly on to everybody really,” said Kenny. “We are a force to be reckoned with,” she added.  “We will keep at it until we make a change.”

Supporters of My Lovely Horse took part in a protest against animal cruelty outside Leinster House last October.

HSE confirms measles cases THE Health Service Executive has confirmed a new outbreak of measles in north Dublin with at least five cases reported since the start of February. Health officials are now advising anybody who thinks they have measles to stay at home and contact their GP for advice. People most at risk of infection are those not vaccinated with the MMR vaccine or who have not had measles anytime in the past. There is a risk of developing measles for up to 21 days after contact with a case of measles. Public Health Specialist, Dr Ruth McDermott, spoke about the disease and offered some advice for anybody concerned about the latest outbreak.

“Measles can be a serious illness and is highly infectious,” she said. “The best protection is to be vaccinated with MMR (Measles, Mumps, and Rubella) vaccine.” Measles symptoms include a high fever, red eyes and a red rash that starts on head and spread down the body. This normally starts a few days after onset of illness. The rash consists of flat red or brown blotches, which can flow into each other. It lasts about 4-7 days. The time between exposure to measles and developing the rash is usually 14 days (range 7-21 days). People are infectious from four days before rash starts until four days after.

People who are sick should not attend settings such as crèche, school, work or religious gatherings until they have recovered from illness. Health experts say all children should get the MMR vaccine when they are aged 12 months. If any child aged over 12 months has missed this vaccine they should get it now from their GP. All children should get a second dose of MMR vaccine when they are 4-5 years old in Junior Infants at school. If any child in Senior Infants or older has missed this vaccine they should also get it now from their GP. Adults under 40 years who have not had measles or have not received two doses of MMR vaccine should contact their GP to get

the MMR vaccine as well. There are now outbreaks of measles in multiple countries in the European region and worldwide. There are growing concerns that the antivaccine movement is now steering those at risk away from getting vacinated. Most people who get measles on holiday don’t know they were exposed until they develop the illness. Unrecognised exposures to measles have occurred at airports, on planes, at concerts, in shops and health care settings. Measles is a notifiable disease and GPs and hospital clinicians are obliged to immediately notify Public Health if they suspect someone has the disease.

CHAMPION BREAKFASTS

The school breakfast club program in Finglas celebrated its sixth birthday recently. The program sees customers at local supermarket SuperValu donate food by leaving in a specially designated box at the store. The produce is then transported to local schools for breakfasts and lunch and has been hugely succesful since its foundation. Following its success in SuperValu, founder Sean Mooney is now appealing to other local supermarkets to get involved.

Finglas engineer inspires women AN IRISH Water engineer from Finglas helped promote engineering as a career choice for girls on International Women’s Day last week. Angela Ryan was one of several engineers who volunteered to help inspire girls and young women on the day, which

fell during Engineers Week this year. A recent Engineers Ireland report highlighted that only 13 percent of engineering graduates in 2017/18 in Ireland were women. Angela is a Water Supply and Resources Strategy Specialist with

Irish Water and has been working as an engineer for over 20 years. “Irish Water is committed to gender equality – 50 percent of our senior management team is female - which is why we want to inspire girls and young women to explore engineering

career paths particularly within the water sector,” she said. Throughout the week, Irish Water showcased female engineers, like Angela, who are at various stages of their careers and working in different engineering roles within the sector.

Angela says the perception of engineering is often different to the reality. “And as a result girls might gravitate more towards more science based subjects as opposed to engineering,” she added. “One of the key skillsets required to be a good engineer, particularly as you advance through your career, is the ability to make clear and wellinformed decisions. “Women tend to have excellent decision making skills and perhaps a tendency to question more.” Angela also had sound

advice for girls leaving school and thinking of checking out a career in engineering. “Absolutely give it a go,” she said. “You get to be involved in some really interesting projects and plans. “I have worked in three different countries and on projects being delivered across the globe. “I have designed everything from roads, to buildings, to water treatment plants, even a nuclear power plant. “In recent years, I have moved more towards a planning role, which hopefully will allow me

to play a small part in shaping the future of the country. “Every day brings a new challenge, every day is busy and I haven’t had a ‘boring’ day in the last 20 years. “I think you would struggle to find any other career where you could say that.” Irish Water staff across the country spent last week visiting schools, hosting site tours and speaking about their careers in the water industry, as well as highlighting the size and scale of the work in safeguarding Ireland’s water for the future.

Finglas engineer Angela Ryan hasn’t had a boring day at work for 20 years.

New bus route to Bray DUBLIN Bus has announced details of a new route that will operate from IKEA in Ballymun to Bray. The 155 will run by DCU, Phibsborough, the city centre, Donnybrook, UCD, Stillorgan Road, and Cabinteely before terminating in the seaside town’s railway station. The new route will operate every 20 minutes, in both directions, seven days a week. The first bus will depart at 6am Monday to Saturday and at 8am on Sundays. The 155 will mean Northsiders now have convenient access for a

day out in Bray during the summer, but the route comes just a season to late for Bohs' fans who would have been happy to have an alternative way of getting to the Co Wicklow town when the Gypsies play now relegated Bray Wanderers. News of the service was welcomed by local councillor, Noeleen Reilly (IND). "This is great news for the area as not only will it provide additional support for the number 4 and the 13 routes but Bray is a very popular location and to have a direct bus route there is very welcome,” she said. “Residents are

extremely pleased as currently you need to get a number of buses, or a bus and a train, to get out to Bray. “Passengers are finding that there are more people using the bus service, particularly at peak times and the buses can get very crowded, so any addition is great. “I can see especially in the summer time that this new destination will become very popular with people in Ballymun. “It also opens up additional employment opportunities for people with the new route.” The introduction of Route 155 was approved by the National Transport Authority.

Sod turned on Lidl project DUBLIN Lord Mayor Nial Ring was in Ballymun recently to officially turn the sod at the area’s new Lidl supermarket development. Planning permission for the Lidl construction project that includes bed accommadation for more than 360 students was applied for back in October 2017. The German retailer initially faced a number of challenges to its Ballymun project on the site bounded by Balbutcher Lane, Balcurris Road and Ballymun Main Street. The National Transport Authority (NTA) lodged an unexpected objection to the plans on the grounds that it could interfere with its plans for Metro North. However, the objection was later withdrawn and permission was granted for the project that will include a number of retail/ café units and offices in three blocks as well as the Lidl outlet and the student

accommodation. Turning the first sod, the Lord Mayor said the development would provide a “real boost” to the local economy. “It will also provide lots of employment opportunities,” he added. “I know that this development will be the catalyst for further commercial investment in Ballymun, which has been transformed into a vibrant and progressive suburb over the past few years.” The mixed-use scheme will encompass a separate Lidl store with additional office space and two linked blocks of student accommodation of six stories in height, rising to 10 storeys at the junction of Ballymun Road and Balbutcher Lane. The ‘North Quarter’ development will cater for 364 students with additional facilities such as a gym, café, cinema room and study halls. The site is located

close to the planned Ballymun Metro Stop and is ten minutes walking distance from Dublin City University. The student residence scheme was brought to the market last year by CBRE on behalf of Lidl and has been forward sold to AIG Real Estate Investment for a sum in excess of €46 million. Alan Barry, Lidl’s director of central services, thanked Dublin City Council and local residents for their support during the planning process. “The project underlines Lidl’s ability to take on larger projects to expand their store network,” he added. “This development will be another major step in the renewal of Ballymun Town Centre.” Speaking on behalf of AIG, Naveen Patha, UK & Ireland head of residential investments, said the company was pleased to be working with Lidl on

An impression of the proposed Ballymun Lidl store. “this high-quality student housing development in Dublin, where the demand supply gap is very acute”. “This project is wellsited, and will cater to students of Dublin City University as well as other universities in the city,” Patha continued. “Additionally, this

project will ease pressure on local housing.” Local Councillor Noeleen Reilly (IND) welcomed the sod turning and said it was great to see works start. “It feels like we are talking forever about Lidl coming to Ballymun,” she said. “Most residents are very

excited to see Lidl coming into the area after decades of underinvestment in shops and businesses. “The biggest failure of the Ballymun regeneration was retail activity, people feel very let down after a lot of false promises. “It is a huge opportunity for local people to gain

employment and I have requested that Lidl work with the Ballymun Job Centre to maximise employment in the area.” Walls Construction Ltd has been appointed by Lidl as the main contractor and the development is scheduled to be completed in Autumn 2020.

DCU awarded Fairtrade status DUBLIN City University has been awarded Fairtrade status in recognition of its commitment to increase the level of Fairtrade products consumed on campus. In order to achieve the certification, DCU has committed to predominantly serve Fairtrade coffee, tea, cocoa and sugar in campus cafés, restaurants and bars, The Northside university was also active throughout the recent annual Fairtrade Fortnight. The designation is the result of a succesful collaboration between DCU Retail, staff, students and DCU Trispace Catering to promote ethical values throughout the university campus. DCU President, Professor Brian MacCraith described achieving Fairtrade status as “a very positive occasion”. “Not just because of the honour that this award brings to DCU, but also because it resonates

so strongly with our institutional values,” he explained. “As highlighted in our Strategic Plan, our mission is to transform lives and societies. “By partnering with the Fairtrade movement we are taking a practical step that turns the purchasing power of DCU’s students, staff and commercial activities into something that is truly transformational for producers across the developing world. "DCU’s Strategic Plan also includes a strategic goal to place sustainability at the core of the university, along with a commitment to address issues of global significance. “With today’s certification as a Fairtrade university, we are demonstrating our seriousness in tackling these challenges.” Peter Gaynor, Executive Director of Fairtrade Ireland welcomed DCU’s commitment to the organisation’s values.

#YouthEmpowered 2019. Celebrating its third year, the programme delivers skills-based workshops with employers or interactive eLearning courses for free at www. youthempowered.ie. It’s designed to support and empower those aged between 16-25 who are not in education or employment across Ireland and Northern Ireland. Over the last two years, 1,300 young people have received free training in financial literacy, project management and sales and business planning. The ambition for this year is to engage a further 1,000 young people, and #YouthEmpowered Digital Hub participants will also embark on a journey of selfdevelopment, learning fundamental relationship skills and how to communicate more effectively in life and in work. Famed for his sporting prowess, #YouthEmpowered ambassador Philly is a hugely successful young businessman off the field as well as an advocate for the importance of social change and the rehabilitation of young people struggling to find their way. “I’m delighted to be supporting the Youth Empowered programme and to be encouraging young people back to education and employment,” Philly said. “The pursuit of continuous learning is not a given for everyone. “For some it’s circumstantial, but for others it’s a lack of confidence, a lack of belief in their own ability. “A free training and mentorship programme like this could really make a difference to school-leavers and jobseekers all over Ireland, giving them the boost, they need to turn a new page and change their life direction. “I’m looking forward to being part of their journey.”

and the facilitation of hate speech by social media platforms. The festival itself emerged as part of DCU’s five-year strategic plan, where the university has committed to nurturing creativity and culture across its campuses. With that in mind, DCU set about rolling out an active programme of cultural activities for students, staff and local

communities around the University – with the ultimate goal of creating a North Dublin Cultural Quarter. The success of Anam Festival is a clear sign that people in the area have got behind the bid to develop a vibrant artistic hub on the Northside. Anam runs on April 3 and 4.

Awards launched Candidate issues crime warning A NORTHSIDE local election candidate is calling for more gardai and patrol cars to be allocated to Ballymun and Finglas Garda stations. Sean Tyrrell (FG) said he has received a “tsunami of complaints” about crime from residents around the Finglas East area including Wadelai and Willow Park, which are under the Ballymun station. According to statistics obtained by Tyrrell at a recent Finglas Safety Forum meeting, there were over 20 home burglaries and 17 car break ins reported in the area over the past three months, along with 19 public order offences and 36 incidents of theft from

shops. “People no longer feel safe in their own homes” said Tyrrell after hosting a recent meeting with residents and Gardaí in the Cremore House pub. “The most common crimes are home burglaries and cars being broken into. “It’s obvious that areas such as Griffith Drive, Ferndale, Wadelai and The Willows are being targeted due to the higher number of older people in these areas, along with poor lighting, and the fact they’re not on main roads. “Thankfully working with Dublin City Council we’ve begun to address the lighting in some of these areas.” Tyrrell credited the Gardaí for trying to

FOLLOWING the success of the Northside People Community & Sports Awards last November, our sister title Southside People is planning its own commnity awards for next month. The Southside People Community & Sports Awards 2019 were

launched at the Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan recently. Southside People is inviting nominations in 10 categories across sport and community (for Southside clubs/groups/organisatons only). You can fill in your FREE nomination for your Team of The Year, Best School in

the Community, Coach of the Year, Volunteer of the Year, Young Sportsperson of the Year, or choose from one of the other categories. The event is open to all sports clubs, schools and community organisations across the Southside of Dublin and we welcome

your participation. The shortlisted nominees will be invited to a Gala Awards night at the Talbot Hotel, Stillorgan on April 26. To enter your nomination, fill out the entry form online by logging onto www. dublinpeopleawards.com

make the best of what he described as “very limited resources at their disposal.” “At the meeting I hosted, one of the complaints put to the Gardaí was the response times,” he added. “However, it was explained that there is only one car in each of the Ballymun & Finglas stations. "It's madness to think there are so few resources in these stations, especially when you consider that Finglas is in the busiest policing district in the country." Tyrell said he was calling on Minister for Justice, Charlie Flanagan, to “pump resources” into both the Ballymun and Conor Mahon, managing director of Dublin People (left), and Orla Carpenter, event organiser (far right), with Finglas Garda stations.

Views sought on canal route FINGAL County Council is seeking submissions from the public on the proposed Royal Canal Urban Greenway route. The route will serve Castleknock, Blanchardstown, Clonsilla, Coolmine and the wider Dublin 15 area. The proposed Greenway is designed to encourage recreation while offering an alternative transport choice for school children and commuters. The council say this will bring significant environmental, economic and health benefits to the wider community. The proposed route takes into account the Royal Canal’s designation as a protected structure and the design includes measures to protect and enhance the existing environment along the

corridor. Mayor of Fingal, Cllr Anthony Lavin, said: “This is an important infrastructural development that will allow Fingal residents to make environmentallyfriendly travel decisions safely.” Chief Executive of Fingal County Council, Paul Reid, said it was important for the council to provide alternative travel options for students and those who have to commute for work. “The Royal Canal Urban Greenway will allow for a more sustainable system of transport while protecting the area’s biodiversity,” he added. “I look forward to seeing the public engagement to help progress this project.” The public consultation on the proposed Greenway is open until March 25.

Aldi boost for ChildVision STAFF at Aldi in Santry have nominated ChildVision in Drumcondra as the latest organisation to benefit from the supermarket’s Community Grants programme. ChildVision, which is dedicated to the education and therapy needs of blind and multidisabled children, have now been awarded a €500 in recognition of its tremendous work and to help support its vital services. John Curtin, Group Buying Director with Aldi Ireland, said staff were more than happy to make the award to such a deserving cause. “We are delighted our Santry store employees have chosen to support ChildVision,” he added. “Its work in catering for the education and therapy needs of blind and multi-disabled

Roganstown wedding finalists - couple #2 Aishling Archbold and Conor McGonagle are this week’s finalists in our competition to win a wedding package worth €10,000 at Roganstown Hotel and Country Club. Eight couples have been selected from over 300 entries and the winners will be announced at Roganstown’s Wedding Fair on May 12. There will also be prizes on the day for the runners-up. Here’s what the couple had to say about their relationship and plans for the future together.

How did you propose? On Christmas morning 2016, a month after our first son was born, he had wrapped the engagement ring box in a larger box so I had no idea what was inside. As I opened it, he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. I was completely shocked it was the last thing I expected!

What’s the most romantic thing you’ve ever done? Probably getting engaged. We are best friends and love each How long you are other a lot. Conor isn’t together? We will be together eight the best at keeping secrets so if he has years in October. planned something How long you have been engaged? Two years.

children makes a huge impact. “Supporting the local communities our stores serve is something that we truly believe in. “Through our Community Grants programme and partnerships with both FoodCloud and Foróige on a national basis, we have been able to directly help many of the worthwhile charities and organisations making a huge difference to County Dublin.” Now in its third year, hundreds of organisations have been supported by the programme to date with over €200,000 donated by Aldi. Through its partnership with FoodCloud, Aldi stores in Dublin have also donated over 240,000 meals to local charities to date, while as Foróige’s lead sponsor since 2015 it has helped support initiatives including the Aldi Foróige Youth Citizenship Awards and the Aldi

Foróige Junior Baking Competition. The supermarket’s Community Grants Programme provides each Aldi employee with an opportunity to nominate a charity, community group or not-

for-profit organisation within their local community for support. Nominated charities are assessed according to a defined selection criteria, with the organisation deemed the most worthwhile receiving a

€500 donation from Aldi. Every Aldi store and its two regional distribution centres have been allocated an individual annual bursary fund and a ‘Charity Champion’ assigned to co-ordinate the programme.

he usually ends up telling me before. But sometimes he will come home with a nice candle or flowers (even a cookbook once!) that he thinks I will like. It’s nice to know he is thinking of me if I’m not with him. What would your first dance song be? ‘The One’ – Kodaline. What would it mean to win this prize? To win this wedding would mean so much. I’ve always known Conor would be the one I would be with forever so it would be a dream come true to marry him and complete our little family.

How did you meet? We are from the same town so we knew of each other but not very well. It wasn’t until I tagged along to his brother’s 30th (even though I wasn’t invited and didn’t know him). We ended up talking for the whole night, kissed and I gave him my number. The rest is, thankfully, history. Aishling Archbold and Conor McGonagle

The Happy Mondays’ classic line-up of front man Shaun Ryder, Bez (freaky dancing and percussion), Rowetta (vocals), Gary Whelan (drums), Paul Ryder (bass), Mark Day (guitar) and Dan Broad (MD/guitar/keys) will perform timeless hits such as ‘Step On’, ‘Kinky Afro’, ‘Hallelujah’, ‘Loose Fit’, ‘Judge Fudge’ and ‘24-Hour Party People’, among all the many others. Happy Mondays frontman Shaun Ryder said: “Be great to be back out on the road with Happy Mondays for some pre-Christmas partying! Looking forward to playing all the hits and more at these shows.” Bez added: “Really excited and looking forward to the Happy Mondays tour - can't wait to do some freaky dancing.” Rowetta said: “I’m really looking forward to this tour, almost 30 years since I first got on

stage with the Mondays. The band and the fans are like family to me and I still love singing these songs as much as I did in 1990.” After signing to Tony Wilson’s Factory Records, the late ‘80s saw the Happy Mondays become the pioneers of the Madchester sound, as they blended their love of funk, rock, psychedelia and house with the sounds of the UK’s emerging rave scene. The band’s third album, 1990’s platinum-selling ‘Pills 'n' Thrills And Bellyaches’, led to the Happy Mondays crossing over into the mainstream to become icons of Britain’s biggest cultural phenomenon for a generation. In 2016, the Happy Mondays won the Ivor Novello’s Inspiration Award, further cementing their reputation as one of Britain’s most influential

TRUE Tides are Cian, Conor and Eoghan MacSweeny. The three brothers have been playing music together their whole lives, developing an energetic sound with a sharp-edged pop dynamic driven by guitars and electronics with layered vocal harmonies at its core. They played their first show in January 2018 and then signed with Faction Records. True Tides have been receiving rave reviews for their high energy live performances and songwriting that brims with catchy melodies and irresistible hooks. Their last single, ‘Automatic’, co-produced with Chris Bubenzer of Diffusion Lab, achieved widespread national and local airplay from its release in August and continues to receive regular rotation on national radio. They sold out their first headline show in the Soundhouse, Dublin, and went on to support All Tvvins at Cork Opera House, Delorentos on their Irish tour and the Coronas for their sold out shows at the Olympia and Ulster Hall, Belfast. They also played main stage at Castlepalooza and Indiependence Music Festivals and the 2FM Rising stage at Other Voices, Dingle. Their debut single, 'Higher', was released April 2018. Produced by Phil Magee (Kodaline, The Script) and mixed by Ross Dowling ( James Vincent McMorrow, BellX1, Talos), the track was named Eoghan McDermott's song of the week. They also released ‘Higher - Solo’, a stripped back version of the single, in December which was playlisted by Spotify UK, New Music Friday. After an explosive first year, True Tides have been included on the 2FM Rising list for 2019 and their most recent single ‘The Answer’, co-produced with Cormac Butler (Kodaline, AllTvvins), was released in January.

Focus your mind on this classy saloon Seán Creedon THE Ford Focus has been a very popular car with Irish motorists since it was launched here in 1999. Over the past 20 years the car has won many awards in mainland Europe and in Ireland also. Over two decades 129,000 units of the Focus have been sold here. A new version of the Focus was introduced to the Irish market in September last year and a few months later it

was named as the Small Compact Car of the Year. The Focus was only beaten by a few votes for the overall Continental Irish Car of the Year prize by the Volvo XC40. Figures released by SIMI for the month of January show that the Focus was third best seller so far this year, behind two SUVs, the Hyundai Tucson and Nissan Qashqai. When we were in Spain last year for the launch of Ford’s new Eco Sport, their design staff were very excited about the

new Focus. Yet when the car came to Ireland I didn’t think there was that much of a change, but maybe I was in the minority. Naturally there are external and internal improvements to what is the fourth generation of the Focus with a new grille and new rear lights. The letters ‘Focus’ are now spelt out on the door of the boot, which looks really good. You now get an automatic handbrake rather than the old-fashioned type, but

otherwise, at a first glance, the car looks pretty much like the previous version. You may remember the first versions of the Focus from 20 years ago when the most popular colour seemed to be silver. I was one of the many drivers who started the new millennium in a silver Focus. You still see a lot of those silver cars on Irish roads, which proves how durable and reliable the Focus is. This time my test car came in Diffused Silver, which looked great and costs an extra €600. The interior was very dark and could have done with a touch of colour. One of the changes to the interior

is that you now get an infotainment screen on the dash. My daughter has been driving a Focus for the past four years. She thinks it’s a bit thirsty, but having previously driven a Nissan Micra, any car that she would have chosen would probably be thirstier than the Micra. In 2017, Ford’s 1.0-litre EcoBoost engine was named Engine of the Year for the sixth year in-a-row, but I still think it’s a bit thirsty. However, it’s a very comfortable motor to travel in. When I sat behind that sporty wheel I really felt at home; it was meeting up with a long lost friend and enjoying their

company once again. The Focus now has a long bonnet and a muscular rear. The seats have also been improved and the really good news is that in the spacious boot you will find a spare wheel and not a dreaded repair kit. Entry level prices for the regular Focus start at €22,513, while the 1.0-litre Titanium model, which has lot of goodies as standard, starts at €24,517. My test car had extras like Luster Nickel 17-inch alloys, fixed LED headlights, wireless charging pad and that gorgeous Diffused Silver touch. This classy saloon proves there is more to life than SUVs.

Meanwhile, the SEAT Ateca continued its outstanding performance in the Irish market since its arrival in 2016. These fantastic results are clear evidence of SEAT’s now firmly established position in the SUV market and cements them as one of the fastest growing car brands in

SEAT’s SUV range has been a major hit with Irish motorists. Ireland. Niall Phillips, Brand Director at SEAT Ireland, commented: “This is shaping up to be another remarkable year for the SEAT brand with these impressive figures clear evidence of the significant impact the brand is having in the Irish

market. The development of our product range over the past three years, particularly our SUV range, has been a gamechanger for the brand in Ireland, meaning we can now offer motorists more quality, value and choice than ever before. “We are excited to see enquiry

levels for the Tarraco rising and incoming orders are already having an impact on our overall sales performance. The Tarraco is our large SUV flagship model and we are extremely confident that it is resonating well with Irish motorists.”

different specifications. A few years ago you practically needed to take out a remortgage if you wanted a pocket spring mattress. Thankfully, the market has mushroomed, resulting in far more choice - and much lower prices. You can now get pocket spring beds for around half the price of the cheapest option a decade ago. Pocket spring beds tend to feel softer, as they are packed with more upholstery and also feature smaller, lighter springs than a conventional mattress, but far more of them are packed tightly together to give good individual support. Further developments in mattress technology have meant that we can now enjoy a bed that’s as soft or as hard as we want.

With so much choice about, it’s important to take your time to find the right bed. Try out several different types and choose what you personally find supportive and comfortable, regardless of labels or even price tags. Narrow your choice down to two or three and then spend plenty of time lying on them in your normal sleeping positions. Five or 10 minutes should be the minimum for each bed. And don’t worry, all the good furniture stores will be only too happy to let you try out their beds. Look for a supportive rather than a hard bed. As we mentioned earlier, don’t assume that orthopaedic or firmer beds are the best option. Often a medium firm bed with proper cushioning is better. Think about the height

of the bed: Can you get in and out of it with relative ease? An adjustable bed might be an option if this is an area of particular concern. And an adjustable bed also offers variable sleeping positions. Many mattresses need to be turned regularly to ensure even wear and tear. If this is likely to prove difficult (and good quality mattresses are heavy) then look for a mattress that does not need regular turning - there are a number of options now on the market After you choose your bed pay some attention to choosing the correct pillow which must support the neck in alignment with the rest of the spine. Too many pillows force the head forward or sideways while too few allow the head to tip backwards. Both can create a crick in the neck.

Dublin project wins STAR award A PROJECT that enables lone parents who are economically inactive to take advantage of training and development opportunities while balancing their role as a parent, won at the annual STAR Awards last week. One Family’s New Futures project won Special Recognition for an ESF Initiative sponsored by the European Social Fund (ESF). The STAR Awards are an initiative organised by national adult learning

organisation, AONTAS as part of its annual Adult Learners’ Festival. Nicola Finnegan, ESF Managing Authority, congratulated One Family’s New Futures Project on their success. “We are delighted to sponsor the ESF Special Recognition Award,” she added. “It has been awarded to a really commendable programme that helps lone parents to take advantage of training and development

opportunities and to learn how to balance work and family life.” One Family’s New Future Project is co-funded by the Department of Justice and Equality and the European Social Fund as part of the Programme for Employability, Inclusion and Learning 2014-2020. Model and adult learner, Gillian Quinn, delivered the keynote address and met the winning groups at the STAR Awards ceremony, which took place in the Pillar Room,

The Rotunda. Over 170 people attended the awards ceremony, representing 27 organisations shortlisted for awards. Quinn spoke about her personal experience of adult learning during her address. “Having left school before completing my Junior Cert, I know first-hand the feeling that I missed my chance,” she said. “It’s only in the last number of years, after taking the daunting step of

returning to education and completing my BSc Hons psychology degree from The Open University, that I know for a fact it’s never too late. “I’m thrilled to be here today acknowledging the brilliant organisations that make returning to and continuing with education possible for so many people around Ireland.” Dublin Simon Community’s Participation and Development Service won in the Social Inclusion category sponsored by The

Open University in Ireland. The service is dedicated to improving wellbeing, self-esteem, socialisation and independence for adults experiencing homelessness. Frances Morton from The Open University in Ireland, congratulated Dublin Simon on their award. “We are delighted to champion social inclusion in adult learning by sponsoring this category,” she said. “Dublin Simon Community’s Participation

and Development Service support learners to engage with their local community and contribute to social and cultural life.” Since its inception in 2007 over 1,000 adult learning initiatives across a wide variety of areas – including increasing educational access for all including those with a disability, supporting positive mental health and as part of addiction recovery – have been recognised through the STAR Awards.

The Dublin Simon team (above) and One Family (right) celebrate their awards.

Lots to learn at Ozanam House ADULTS thinking of learning something new got a look at some of the fantastic courses available in the North Inner City last week. Ozanam House hosted a showcase event called ‘The Power and Joy of Learning’ as part of the Aontas Adult Learner Festival that took place during the week. The event highlighted the CDETB funded Community Education centres and programmes that take place in the North Inner city. CDETB fund over 50 programmes at Community Centres in the inner city including Henrietta Adult and Community Education, DALC, Soilse, CASPR, Ozanam House, The Larkin Centre for Unemployed, INOU, and Gateway project to name just a few. The showcase event was an opportunity for local people to go and find out about the educational and social activities taking place that are available

to them in the various centres. Community education is adult learning that takes place in local community settings across Ireland. It is learner-centred and responds to the needs of the local community. Community education has a track record of effectively engaging with people who wish to return

to education, but who may not have the confidence or opportunity to do so in a formal setting. Courses and programmes include Computers for Over 55s, Flower Arranging, Drama, Horticulture, Spelling, Art, Family Genealogy, Mosaics, Cooking for the Family, English as a second or other language, Spanish

for your Holidays and Irish for Fun. Other programmes include training programmes in Childcare and Healthcare along with Men's programmes, Literacy programmes, programmes working with migrant communities, and Education and Training for those recovering from addiction.

Learning to knit is one of the many rewarding courses available to adults.

Airport wins award for customer experience

Superdry will open its seventh Irish store at Pavilions Shopping Centre, Swords.

Superdry store picks Pavilions Shopping Centre HAMMERSON, Irish Life and IPUT have announced that fashion brand Superdry has signed for its seventh Irish store at Pavilions Shopping Centre, Swords. Superdry is a contemporary brand which fuses vintage Americana and Japaneseinspired graphics. The retailer is characterised by quality

fabrics, authentic vintage washes, unique detailing, world leading hand-drawn graphics and tailored fits with diverse styling. The retailer has taken a 3,810 sq ft unit over two floors. The new store, featuring women’s wear, menswear, footwear and accessories, will open in April. The letting follows the recent openings of a 1,300

sq ft Smiggle unit, an upsized River Island store and a new JD Sports store. River Island’s expansion saw an upsize into a new 10,700 sq ft flagship for the brand to showcase its full fashion and homeware ranges. JD Sports also recently relocated into a new 10,000 sq ft unit at ground floor level, creating a brand new store which

opened last September. Simon Betty, Hammerson Director of Retail Ireland, said: “It’s fantastic to welcome yet another international brand to North Dublin’s leading shopping destination. “The centre’s strong catchment and trading profile make it a natural choice for retailers looking to grow their brand in prime, urban locations.”

ESB PENSIONERS HOLD PROTEST

Members of the ESB Retired Staff Association recently held a protest at the company’s head office on East Wall Road, involving all 15 branches of the organisation nationwide. They were protesting over a 10-year pension freeze after their claim for a 7.7 percent increase was rejected last August. PHOTO: TONY MCCULLAGH SNR

DUBLIN Airport has been named one of the best airports in the world in a global ranking of passenger experience. It was the joint winner in its category of European airports that have 25-40 million passengers per year in the Airports Council International (ACI) World Airport Service Quality (ASQ) Awards announced last week. Dublin shared its category win with Oslo Gardermoen and Zurich airports. The 2018 ASQ Awards are based on 640,000 passenger survey results in 84 countries that measure the key elements of a passenger’s experience at each airport. The awards are presented to the airports whose customers have rated them the highest during the year. “The Airport Service Quality Awards celebrate the achievements of airports in delivering the best customer experience and they represent the highest possible accolade for airport operators around the world,” said ACI World Director General Angela Gittens. Dublin Airport managing director Vincent Harrison said they were absolutely thrilled to win the award. “This is a highly prestigious

Passengers pictured at Dublin Airport which has won an award for customer experience. international customer service award based on detailed passenger studies carried out globally,” said Mr Harrison. “This award is a huge endorsement for the entire team at Dublin Airport. Since 2014, our passenger numbers have increased by 45 percent to a record 31.5 million last year, and throughout that period, we have had a relentless focus on providing the best possible experience to our growing number of customers. “We will continue to put the passenger at the heart of everything we do at Dublin Airport.”

ST PATRICK’S FESTIVAL

Almost every Dubliner has fond memories of the St Patrick’s Day Parade so why not create some more for this event that gets bigger and better every year. These days the festival is a five-day international affair, packed with all kinds of fun events to celebrate our national culture. The parade is still the main event, and it starts at midday at Parnell Square on the big day. This year’s theme is Storytelling so expect street theatre and pageant companies to dazzle the crowds with their artistic interpretations of the 2019 theme. And as usual, Irish and international bands will deliver rhythmically captivating musical scores that are sure to echo through the streets of the capital. You can get into the mood starting on Saturday, March 16, in Merrion Square, which will be transformed into a bustling Festival Village, with three days of fantastic events, fun adventures and glorious food, featuring a Gaeltacht area, Céilí Mór, circus and science shows, children’s readings and discos, live music, village hall talks, street theatre, world food stalls and much more. Also worth checking out is Candlelit Tales, a troupe of musicians, dancers, storytellers and performers that have a passion for injecting new life into old and sometimes forgotten stories. They’ll be performing in Whelan’s on Wexford Street on Monday, March 18, from 8.30pm. All the festival events are listed at www. stpatricksfestival.ie.
