The parents of Zoe Murphy have given a positive update on the status of their daughter following life changing surgery in the USA last weekend. Two-year old Zoe Murphy was born with quadriplegia and developed cerebral palsy at 21 months old. As a result she suffers with spasticity and restricted movement. Zoe’s parents Lynda Bannon and Eamonn Murphy were told by doctors that their daughter faced the prospect of being in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. However, after be-

Two-year-old Zoe Murphy was born with quadriplegia and developed cerebral palsy at 21 months old. As a result she suffers with spasticity and restricted movement. Zoe’s parents Lynda Bannon and Eamonn Murphy were told by doctors that their daughter faced the prospect of being in a wheelchair for the rest of her life. However, after being introduced to CBD Oil in early 2018 Zoe showed remarkable improvements and was told that she was eligible to receive life changing surgery in America that could improve her standard of living still further.

ly destroy problematic nerve roots in the spinal cord - potentially eradicating spasticity as Zoe’s bones/muscles grow. After a huge fundraising effort last year Zoe and her family reached their €100,000 target and a date was set for surgery in St Louis Children’s hospital Missouri by Dr T.S Park. That date finally arrived last weekend and following the operation Eamonn and Lynda took to social media to share their great news. “She’s out and in recovery. We just spoke to Dr Park who has confirmed the surgery was a success. Toes have wiggled, hands have gripped and Zoe made a joke about princesses kissing frogs. She is back with us and we will never be letting her go again. “Thank you so so much for the unbelievable amount of support we have

got all morning. The last four hours we have both got so many messages from so many people just wanting updates on Zoe and checking on her. Your support and love for Zoe absolutely melts our hearts. Thank you all so so so much. We just wanted to let you all know she is done. She is in recovery and on Valium right now so will be in and out for the rest of the day, but everyone is confident here she done great . “For all the prayers and candles, thank you so much, they have been answered. We will keep updating her page so everyone can keep up with her progress. I knew our little warrior would kick this surgeries ass. Thank you, thank you, thank you. The happiest parents in the world right now,” concluded the message. Zoe Murphy with Dr TS Park

Launch of Wee County Double House draw One of the most ambitious projects in the history of Louth GAA will be officially launched on Friday

night in Dundalk. The Wee County Double House draw is set to finance the development of the new

County Ground on the Inner Relief Road. Tickets for the draw are priced at €100 with two semi-detached three-bedroom houses up for grabs along with a third prize of €10,000

cash, with the draw taking place on Saturday May 16. One house is located at Sew View Way Dundalk and another house in Beaulieu Village, Drogheda. The holder of the

first ticket drawn will be given the choice of house or alternatively they can take a €200,000 cash prize. In the event of the cash prize being taken, the second ticket holder will be given the choice of either house or the €200,000 cash. The official launch of the initiative will take place in the Imperial Hotel at 8pm compered by Brendan Cummins. Louth GAA Treasurer, Aidan Berrill, will outline the project, while there

will also be contributions on the night from both Frank Lynch and Danny Culligan from the organising committee. Representatives from the Louth football men’s and ladies’ teams will be present along with players from the hurling and camogie teams. The event is not only designed to launch the sales of the tickets but also to start the process of putting together a team of up to 800 sellers to ensure the project is a success over the next

six months. A maximum of 25,000 tickets will be sold for the draw and Louth County Board have been working hard over the past number of months to get all clubs and supporters of the county behind the initiative. The Louth Board is appealing to people to buy their tickets as soon as possible and also to keep in mind that a ticket would make a very good Christmas present. In the build up to the festive season it is hoped that businesses

will consider this as an option for a Christmas bonus. The ambitious €12m project will provide Louth GAA with a 14,000 capacity arena made up of a 4,080 seated stand which contains two kiosks, four dressing rooms, and a physio room. The standing terrace on the opposite side of the ground will hold 8,470 spectators while there will be two standing areas behind each of the goals, each with a capacity of 725 spectators.

Permission given to re-open Ravensdale quarry By Paul Byrne

Residents in the Ravensdale area were dealt a blow last week when An Bord Pleanála approved the re-opening of an unused quarry in Ballymakellet, Ravensdale. Residents had been fighting for years to ensure the quarry remained close citing concerns of air pollution, traffic issues, pollution to local rivers and wildlife as well as damaging the value of their houses. The quarry which has been out of commission since 1962 was due to re-open again in 2015 when Buncorp Group Ltd were given conditional planning permission buy the local authority to begin work

again at the site. Buncorp stated that they wished to re-open the quarry in Ballymakellet for a period of five years for the production of road making materials. However, those plans were hit with a setback following objections which were officially lodged by over 70 local residents. Following these objections An Bord Pleanála overturned Louth County Council’s decision to allow the quarry to re-open. That decision came in March of 2016 and seemingly signalled another victory for residents who had successfully stopped plans to re-open the quarry in 2006 and in

1992 also. However, last November Louth County Council gave conditional planning permission to Arabtec Capital Unlimited to re-open the quarry, a decision which triggered another round of objections from local residents. This time however the residents were defeated with An Bord Pleanála backing the local authority’s decision to re-open the quarry. That decision came with a number of conditions including an agreement that the operational period of the extraction works shall be for a period of five years with a further two years for the restoration of the site to be completed.

It was also stated that blasting was forbidden while no extractions are able to take place below the level of the water table. Vehicles transporting material to and from the site, and accessing the site, must also use the R174 running from the quarry to the R173 only. Reacting to the news, local Green Party member Eoin Daly said the decision flies in the face of rational thought. “We have been saying for a number of years that reopening this quarry, which has been closed since the 60s, will certainly have implications for the local quality of life.” Local residents have been objecting to the reopening

for a number of years. In recent years the council granted permission for its reopen in 2015, before an Bord Pleanála overturned its decision following local appeals in 2016. This current decision from An Bord Pleanála follows a council decision in November of last year to once again reopen the quarry. “We will read over the Bord’s decision on the matter, but I cannot see what has substantially changed since the Bord’s previous decision not to reopen in 2016,” Daly said. “Residents have long been fighting the reopening of this quarry and the Green Party will continue to support them in this,” concluded Eoin.

Shauna set to compete at Queen of the Land Festival

Shauna Brennan will represent Louth Macra at the 55th Annual Queen of the Land Festival, which is being organised by members of Offaly Macra na Feirme. The festival will take place this weekend of November 8 to 10 in Tullamore, Offaly. Shauna, a 27-year-old vet who works in O’Dowds in Ardee, is the chairperson of the Louth County Macra. She is an active member of Stabannon Macra na Feirme club and her hobbies include horse riding and travel. For Shauna, competing in Queen of the Land means upholding the reputation of her club and county as she follows in the footsteps of her cousin Aoife Gregory who was a finalist in the competition in 2014. The festival weekend

Shauna Brennan

has a busy schedule as Shauna and 28 other finalists take a tour of County Offaly, visiting Clonmacnoise and Dan & Molly’s thatched pub in Ballyboy, followed by the Grand Opening at the Tullamore Credit Union at 6pm. Shauna will have a private interview with the judges early on Sat-

urday morning. This year’s judges include Denis Delaney, CEO of Tullamore Credit Union; Amii McKeever, Editor of Irish Country Living, and Louise Crowley of Limerick who won the Queen of the Land 2018 title. The highlight of the festival is when the Queens meet the Pau-

pers. On Saturday evening it is the girls time to take the stage for their interviews at 6pm in the Bridge House Hotel. Once Shauna finishes on stage, she can let her hair down and party. On Sunday morning, the Queens meet with the locals at Sunday Mass in the Church of the Assumption Tullamore. Later they meet for Craic & Ceol in the Old Harbour Bar and when the Queens all scarper off to get ready, the Escorts can be found there still up to minutes before the Black Tie Banquet. The four-course meal is hosted in the Bridge House Hotel’s charming Charleville Suite and brings everyone together over good food and conversation for one last time before the weekend ends.

Artists for Animals concert to raise funds for LSPCA An exciting line-up of musicians have been announced to play at the upcoming ‘Artists for Animals’ concert in aid of the Louth Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. The concert will take place in the Lisdoo Bar and Restaurant on November 15 and will include local acts such as the award-winning duo of Zoe Conway and her husband John McIntyre, the Oriel Traditional Orchestra, Jim Corr as well as fiddle player Liam Monagher. All money raised on the evening will go towards repairs at the LSPCA’s shelter at Wal-

terstown which was vandalised back in August. Substantial damage was caused during the break in including the office door being smashed in, lights pulled off walls, curtains pulled down and stolen and bleach and vinegar poured all over the mobile unit. A brand new cctv system was also stolen during the incident. The LSPCA committee have been busy fundraising to try and repair all the damage and their ‘Artists for Animals’ evening is their main event to try and help restore the shelter to its previous glory. As well as the brilliant line

Dundalk’s treble bid ended in heartbreak on Sunday afternoon at the Aviva as they lost out to rivals Shamrock Rovers in a dramatic penalty shootout. Dundalk who were below their best for much of the game fell behind in the 89th minute when Aaron McEneff tucked away a penalty following Gary Rogers foul on Aaron Greene to spark wild celebrations amongst the Rovers fans. It seemed like the game was up for Vinny Perth’s side at that stage but this team never know when they are beaten and with the final attack of the game they sent the Lilywhite supporters into raptures when Michael Duffy fired home a sublime half-volley on the turn to equalise with the very last kick of the game. Dundalk, who had badly missed the presence of key midfielder Chris Shields, had forced extra-time and given their supporters hope that a famous treble was back on the table. However, despite creating the best chance

at the end of extra-time when Georgie Kelly forced an excellent save from Alan Mannus the game would go to penalties to decide who would lift the famous old cup. Jamie McGrath’s successful opening spotkick was matched by Jack Byrne but it was advantage Rovers when Michael Duffy hit the bar with his effort. Joey O’Brien made it 2-1 to the hoops before Dun-

dalk gave themselves a mountain to climb as Daniel Cleary’s effort was saved by Mannus. Although Flores managed to score Dundalk’s next penalty, Rovers were not to be denied as Greg Bolger and Gary O’Neill both found the back of the net to give the Tallaght side their first FAI cup win since 1987. After the game Dundalk manager Vinny

Perth congratulated Shamrock Rovers on their victory while lamenting the loss of key midfielders Chris Shields (suspended) and Patrick McEleney (injured). “I suppose obviously there’s a big sense of disappointment, for many reasons,” Perth said afterwards. “We didn’t feel we were at our very best today, some for obvious reasons, some that’s just

the way it goes. “I was very proud to lead the team into the stadium, it was a real honour for someone like me who, as many of you will know, know where I’ve come from “And, to be honest with you, after the year we’ve had, I’m very proud leaving the ground as well. It’s just been one of those days that didn’t go our way.” Dundalk will com-

DkIT staff back industrial action by record margin over strategic future

Staff at DkIT have voted by 99.1% to 0.9% to engage in industrial action in a dispute which they describe as ‘the failure of DkIT’s President’s Office and Institute Administration to adhere to national collective agreements, respect industrial relations mechanisms and engage in transparent and meaningful consultation on a range of issues’. Frustration has been building for months regarding the institute’s strategic future. While staff overwhelmingly support an immediate move toward Technological University status, staff representatives claim the DkIT President’s Office has gone to extraordinary lengths to prevent discussion of the Technological University topic in Academic forums. With Limerick and

Athlone ITs recent announcement they would be combining to seek Technological University status, DkIT is now effectively the only Institute of Technology not moving towards university status. Recent requests from the TUI for consultation on the Institute’s strategic future have received no response from senior management. However, it was the emergence of a new plan to establish a 5th school within DkIT that prompted the recent ballot. The 5th school plan, developed by Senior Administrators without consultation with staff, intends to dispense with academic Quality Assurance practices and oversight, and introduce what the TUI describe as ‘a high cost / low quality model of education provision, which is totally at odds with the traditional mis-

sion of the IoT sector to provide high quality and affordable education accessible to all.’ Dundalk IT TUI Branch Chair Kenneth Sloane commented that Institutes of Technology have established and agreed practices for allowing innovation and development to occur so that Institutions like DkIT can continue to serve the changing educational, economic and social needs of people

and enterprises in the region and beyond. “These practices are embodied in a range of local and national agreements and forums usually characterised by a cooperative approach between management and staff where progress is achieved through discussion, consensus and agreement. “Unfortunately under the current President of DkIT staff have attempted to replace our

traditional collaborative way of doing business and the 5th school plan is just one instance, and which is in breach of both national and local agreements. As management have not withdrawn this plan and are in fact planning to proceed with it, our members had no option but to ballot for industrial action,” he continued. “A 99.1% ballot in favour of industrial action based on a 81% turnout

of members is quite unprecedented, and illustrates the determination of DkIT’s staff to not only demand a return by management to industrial relations norms and adherence to agreements, but also reveals the levels of concern regarding the Institute’s strategic future, which staff believe management has placed in jeopardy by their continuing failure to engage in the Technological University process, thereby risking the prospect of the North East becoming the only region in the country without a university campus of its own,” concluded Mr Sloan. In response to the call for industrial action from the TUI, DkIT President Michael Mulvey insisted that he would continue to work with its members to try and resolve the issue. “We note the recent

ballot by the TUI and will continue to work with its members. At this time, the institute is actively engaged in a strategic planning process which involves extensive consultation with staff representatives from across the Institute around the future direction of the institute. Part of the strategic planning process includes the exploration of all of the viable designation options available to DkIT, of which Technological University (TU) designation is one. “The purpose of this planning process is to ensure that the full implications of all designation options are comprehended and are appropriately considered for adoption or otherwise within an overall Institute Strategic Plan 2020 to 2022 which will be published early next year,” concluded President Mulvey.

‘Shocking’ that Tallanstown Water was contaminated for 12 days An Environmental Protection Agency report found that the problem was discovered on July 19th , but the Boil Water Notice was only put in place on July 30th– Fianna Fáil TD for Louth Declan Breathnach Declan Breathnach. has said the report from the Environmental Protection Agency that the Tallanstown Water Supply was contaminated for nearly 12 days before a Boil Water Notice was ‘shocking’ and said answers are needed from Irish Water. The EPA report found that this delay ‘posed an unacceptable risk to public health for the consumers of Tallanstown Public Water Supply’. Breathnach commented “The EPA found that the treatment problem began on July 19th , was not escalated to Irish Water until the 26th and then the Boil Water Notice was not put in place till July 30th. That’s almost two weeks of people in Mid Louth potentially drinking contaminated water. To make matters worse even though the Boil Water Notice has been partially lifted, 600 people served by Tallanstown are still under a Boil Water Notice” He continued “Serious questions need to be asked to Irish Water on how they allowed this delay to happen. Communication from Irish Water has been very poor during Boil Water Notices, which was illustrated recently after 600,000 people served by the Leixlip Plant were put under Boil Water Notice. People deserve to feel safe drinking water in their own homes and when a problem arises it needed to be communicated clearly and quickly”

Louth schools receive TESA accreditation

Ó Fiaich College and Coláiste Ris, Dundalk were celebrated at Junior Achievement Ireland’s inaugural The Entrepreneurial School Awards (TESA) Summit hosted by Microsoft. The schools were some of the 94 schools from across Ireland who were awarded TESA certification to mark each school’s commitment to entrepreneurship education, which covers all activities that seek to give individuals the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to achieve the goals they set for themselves to live a fulfilled life. The TESA Summit was an ideal opportunity both to celebrate the work of educators across Ireland in developing entrepreneurial skills in students and to share best practice in a unique and inspiring venue. A range of speciallycommissioned masterclasses were arranged for TESA-certified schools to attend during the summit. These

Gary Crossan and Audrey Flood from O Fiaich College with the award

included Microsoft’s Educational Transformation workshop, a Design Thinking Sprint led by Professor Jonathan Levie and his team from NUI Galway and a Microsoft workshop on Ed Tech for 21st Century Educators. Gort Community School in Co. Galway was announced as the overall winner of the ‘TESA School of

the Year – Microsoft Award’, the Galway second level school being recognised for its outstanding commitment to entrepreneurship education. Nominees of the school will travel to Helsinki to represent Ireland at the Entrepreneurial Schools European conference. JAI chief executive Helen Raftery commented on this first

awards ceremony saying that TESA gives schools the opportunity to benchmark themselves against standards of excellence. “For our part, it formally recognises the work being done by primary and second level schools across the country in nurturing entrepreneurial skills in students, helping them develop the essential

skills, knowledge and attitudes those young people will need to achieve the goals they set for themselves. “TESA is also a welcome opportunity to celebrate the incredible work of our partner schools. More than 843 students received JA programmes in Louth, and 63,100 nationwide, in the last school year alone,” explained Ms

Raftery. TESA was launched by JAI in January of this year with a call for submission of applications from JAI partner schools across Ireland in February. The schools were selfassessed against TESA criteria and completed a submission with the aim to establish themselves as an entrepreneurial school.

Robert Kearney supports Public consultation Christmas Jumper Day process for Ardee Bypass

Irish rugby legend Robert Kearney has been announced as the ‘Face of Christmas Jumper Day’ for CMRF Crumlin, to raise vital funds for CHI Crumlin and the National Children’s Research Centre. The CMRF Christmas Jumper Day will launch in schools and businesses across Ireland from November, and aims to raise €50,000 for some of Ireland’s sickest children. Robert, who is a CMRF Crumlin ambassador, is encouraging teachers and students to set up a Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser in their school; and employees to set up a Christmas Jumper Day fundraiser in their companies, in aid of CMRF Crumlin.
 “Christmas Jumper Day is a great way to support sick children in Crumlin hospital. Over 150,000 children go through the doors of CHI Crumlin every year. CMRF has helped families in most communities across Ireland, so I’m proud to support

Fianna Fáil TD for Louth and East Meath Declan Breathnach has welcomed the update from TII on the future of the Ardee Bypass and says cross-party cooperation is needed for the proposals. This follows a meeting with Louth Oireachtas members and TII officials last week. “The situation is that the planning permission relating to this project is outdated. Planning started in the late 1990s, with approval being given in 2005. This was a shovel ready project at that stage, but there was no funding given for it at

this campaign,” stated Robert. “Hopefully I can encourage as many children, teachers and companies as possible to raise vital funds for sick children. Childhood illness takes too many precious moments of laughter, play and happiness. Christmas should be a special time for them no matter where they are.

I’m calling on schools and companies across Ireland to join me, and host a Christmas Jumper Day in aid of CMRF, so that they can create some magical memories for sick children this Christmas,” he added. 
CMRF Crumlin is encouraging people taking part in Christmas Jumper Day to share photos on social media

and to tag @cmrf_crumlin using the hashtags #ChristmasJumperDay and #WhateverItTakes. Christmas Jumper Day packs can be sent out to schools and companies looking to participate in the nationwide fundraiser. Interested participants can email Sinead Nolan on christmasjumperday@cmrf. org to order their packs.

the time,” he explained. “When the scheme was reactivated in 2018 a number of concerns regarding the design were expressed by local communities. The concerns primarily relate to the creation of two cul-de-sacs that were included as part of the scheme in the Mullenstown/Coole area and the negative impacts that these would have on local residents and traffic movements. “It’s important now that consideration is given to the EU Habitats Directive 2012. Environmental issues raised must

be addressed,” added Deputy Breathnach. The TII confirmed to Mr Breathnach there would be a public consultation process on the Ardee Bypass in March or April of next year. “It is important to note also that this is a project of such great importance it should not be politicised and used for point-scoring with talks of an election in the air. I firmly believe that all parties should work collectively to achieve the delivery of the Ardee Bypass,” he concluded.

Eddie wins shoot-out at Dundalk There was a shoot-out of a different sort to the Aviva Stadium in Dundalk Golf Club on Sunday as Eddie Rogers came out on top in the 14 Hole Singles Stableford competition. The four handicapper was one of three players to reach 31pts and it was his 20pts over the final nine holes which delivered him the overall vic-

tory on countback from Billy Cairns (5). Carins two point par on the final hole, the 18th, edged him into second place ahead of Conor Byrne (21) after the pair were tied on countback after nine, six and three holes. Mickey Coburn (10) took the Category 1 Prize, with Paddy Duffy (14) winning Category 2 and Tom Clarke

(18) claiming Category Three. Rogers, with 28pts, also had the day’s best gross score, as he shot a round that included two birdies, 10 pars and two bogeys. The birdies came at the second and 12th while the bogies were at the third and 11th as Rogers went around in 57 strokes which was level par for the 14 holes played.

Munster welcomes victory for Are your hearing Save Sruthán House campaign aids working?

Sinn Féin TD Imelda Munster has welcomed the decision this week by the HSE that Sruthán House in Dundalk will remain open, following a consultation carried out by the head of Social Care, Jude O’Neill, and service users. Mr O’Neill presented the news to public representatives at a meeting at Darver Centre of Excellence on Wednesday afternoon and Deputy Munster revealed that everyone in Darver was thrilled when the HSE revealed at the outset of the presentation that Sruthan House will remain open as a residential respite service. “The HSE outlined that they want to increase capacity and extend opening hours over seven days. This is good news for the service users and their families today, who know how highly valuable and important the service provided by Sruthan House is,” stated Deputy Munster who also praised the campaigners who

Imelda and Ollie during the campaign to save Sruthan House

had fought the HSE’s original announcement that the service would be closed. “When I was first contacted by service users and their families, after they received letters from the HSE suggesting they could go to nursing homes or far-away facilities in Roscommon and other places, I raised the issue straight away with Minister for Disabilities, Finian McGrath.

“I persisted in raising the issue with Minister McGrath and with health minister Simon Harris. I helped set up a campaign to save Sruthán House and kept highlighting the facts that not one person who used the facility had a bad word to say about it, that it has passed all HIQA inspections and also that it is badly needed in Louth. “There was no justification whatsoever for

its proposed closure so Wednesday’s news from the HSE, that they are going to reverse their decision and Sruthán House will remain open, is fantastic. “I want to publicly pay tribute to all the service users and their families for their perseverance and determination in this campaign, which brought about the HSE decision to keep Sruthán House open,” added Ms Munster.

If you own hearing aids it is vital that  you wear them and it is important  that  they work effectively and comfortably for you. If they  don’t  then  they won’t be worn – and that has serious consequences on yours or your loved ones quality of life and neurological health. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of hearing aids are cast aside and unworn while many more are tolerated but are not working as they should. GOOD NEWS FOR YOU The good news is that expert help is at hand for those unhappy with their hearing aids. “Virtually every hearing aid can be fixed and most issues can be improved” says to Frank McGrath, APEX Hearing’s Director of Audiology in Drogheda. “Our staff have repaired, returned and modified almost every model of aid available over the last 20 years. Hearing aids not fitting comfortably and not having a apprpriate sound  are two major recurring problems. But nothing surprises us.” Frank explains that aids sitting in drawers for years, eaten by dogs and even crushed by cars have been repaired and successfully refitted time and time again. “It is vitally important to wear your hearing aids” he states “as research shows that failing to do enormously increases one’s risk of dementia, memory loss, accidents and even depression. If you have hearing aids you cannot wear we will help you.” Frank encourages owners of new aids to refurbish their old ones. “You

Frank McGrath of Apex Hearing

may be without your hearing aids if a repair or service needs to be completed. Having your old aids gives you great confidence and backup.” APEX Hearing has the most advanced audiological test equipment including Laser Ear Scanning in their North East Clinic based at the Crosslanes Medical Clinic, Drogheda near the Lourdes Hospital.

England and South Africa flags burned ahead of final

Dundalk Leader 6th November 2019

Plant a tree as part of Science Week 2019

Blackrock Tidy Towns have expressed their surprise at an incident on Friday evening which saw both the English and South African flags burned in the village. The flags were put up on a flagpole along the promenade by the Tidy Towns committee ahead of the Rugby World Cup final on Saturday morning which featured both countries. On Friday evening

both the English and South African flags were found burnt along with a broken flagpole. According to the Blackrock Tidy Towns Committee it has been a long standing tradition in the village to raise the flags of finalists in both the football and rugby world cups. “We’ve been flying the flags of finalists in the football and rugby world cup for many years on the

promenade. We really didn’t expect that one would cause so much offence,” read a state-

ment from the group which was posted on social media.

Irish running legend, Sonia O’Sullivan, is leading a call-out for volunteers in Louth to get involved and organise a GOAL Mile in their communities this Christmas.

The GOAL Mile is the humanitarian aid agency, GOAL’s, longest running and most popular fundraisers when thousands of people all over the country abandon the turkey and

pudding and walk, run or jog a mile on Christmas Day. Last year more than 130 GOAL Miles took place throughout Ireland. In Louth alone there was four GOAL

throughout the county. GOAL is now calling on volunteers to continue their support of these events. Register your interest in hosting a GOAL Mile with GOAL at goalmile.org.

Call to organise GOAL Mile

Science Foundation Ireland is calling on the people of Louth to be a part of Science Week 2019. This year, Science Week focuses on climate action with a number of ways for those in Louth to get involved, from attending a treeplanting or planting your own tree to attending a Science Week event or joining the conversation online. Science Week 2019 is the perfect opportunity to find out more about what climate change means to you and how science can help us understand the facts behind climate action and the solutions for it. Running from 10-17 November, Science Week aims to bring science and climate action to the fore of the public’s minds through fun, engaging and interactive events. As part of Science Week, Science Foundation Ireland, in association with Coillte, is supporting the national effort to plant 440 million trees by 2040. Coillte have kindly provided 30,000 trees to Science Foundation Ireland to be planted during Science Week. In conjunction with the Tree Council of Ireland and Easy Treesie, there will be tree planting events

taking place across Louth where you can find out what trees do for our environment, which trees suit the Irish ecosystem the best and how you can plant your own trees at home. Trees are essential to our ecosystem, as they reduce carbon and release oxygen into the atmosphere and as the Trillion Trees initiative drives the global movement behind tree planting forward, Science Week wants you to get involved and make a difference in Ireland. The free tree planting Louth events will be taking place during Science Week, for more information visit www.ScienceWeek.ie. The Tree planting campaign is one of many fantastic interactive elements happening throughout the week, and one of the other events locally is Climate Change by Fridays for Future which takes place on Tuesday November 12 from 6pm to 7pm at Dundalk Library. Science Week has something for everyone, no matter your age or interests. To find out more about the amazing events taking place near you during Science Week visit www.scienceweek.ie.

Cyclists celebrate 200th anniversary of local race

Local cycling enthusiasts were out in force on Saturday to remember a unique sporting event that took place in Dundalk 200 years ago. On October 23, 1819, George Foster cycled a velocipede or boneshaker from the Army Barracks to Market Square in a time of eight minutes as part of a bet. The time trial is understood to be the first record of a cycle race in the town. The event was discovered by Kevin Dolan when compiling ‘Dundalk – A Cycling History 1819 to 2010’ as he found the entry in a book by local historian, Pat O’Neill, ‘The Journal of Henry McClintock’. Plans to mark the 200th anniversary began six years ago when Pat O’Neill was joined by members of Cuchulainn Cycling Club and Army personnel to discuss ways to commemorate the event. On that occasion they had a bicycle similar to the one used by Foster which was provided by a local antique collector. The entry in Henry McClintock’s Journal was as follows: Saturday October 23rd, 1819: Fine day – Geo Foster rode on a velocipede from the Barrack yard to the Market House in Dundalk in three seconds under eight minutes, winning his wager (that he made with Colonel Teesdae of the 1st Dn.Gds.) by three seconds only – he started at about half past ten in the morning. Liam Kieran of the Dundalk Cycling Alliance praised the Cuchulainn Cycling Club for their efforts which helps highlight the importance of cycling. “The event raised the profile of cycling and encourages more people to cycle and this has the benefit of cleaner air for all of us along with better health for those who exercise. “Heart disease was formerly the world’s main cause of death but this is no longer the case in richer countries. This change is in part due to medical advances and also better diet with more exercise.

Aine nominated for carer award

Simply doing her dream job has led to local woman, Aine Murphy, being nominated as a finalist in the Nursing Home Carer of the Year Award “I nearly dropped the phone when I found out I had been nominated, but because I wouldn’t swap this job for the world, I feel like a winner every day,” said Áine, who has worked at Moorehall Lodge for the past six years. The Nursing Home Ireland (NHI) Care Awards recognise excellent care provided across a range of disciplines within nursing homes and innovative practice in care provision. RTE presenter Marty Whelan will MC the national awards ceremony final on Thursday, November 14 at Dublin’s Citywest Hotel. “I started working with Moorehall Lodge at 17, and through this job I have flourished as a person,” said Annagassan native Áine.

Moorehall Lodge carer Aine Murphy, pictured here with resident Marie Murtagh “I would certainly recommend this as a career for others. Our household model makes caring very personal within a positive living and working environment. “Moorehall Lodge is a warm and caring place to work where everyone feels at home and part of a family.

“When you come to work on a Monday morning, you can expect to be filling everyone in the household in on what you were up to that weekend. “You get a huge amount of feedback from the people you are caring for and it creates an environment where people grow

into themselves.” Over 300 nominations were put forward from people in communities across Ireland for the NHI Care Awards’ ten award categories. NHI represents over 400 nursing homes throughout Ireland, and the fact that just 28 people have been

shortlisted for the finals shows the scale of Moorehall Living’s achievement. Moorehall Living CEO Sean McCoy was delighted with the news of Aine’s nomination. “This recognition on a national stage means so much to Aine and all of us at Moorehall

Lodge. “We are proud that both our residents and staff think of Moorehall Lodge as home, and Aine and the team around her are embodiments of that ethos.” For further information on vacancies for carers at Moorehall Living see moorehallliving.ie/careers.
