Shame on those who are knowingly abusing the disabled parking cards

A

LOT of people have different opinions about disabled parking spaces and the regulations that govern their use. Several have asked me to write about the rules and regulations attached to having a disabled parking card, as they feel there is some abuse. The EU Disabled Parking Card must be displayed on the dash of a car. People displaying the card can park in spaces with the wheelchair symbol painted on the ground. Parking is provided by the Local Authority or Public Bodies. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s free and unlimited. The card entitles the holder to park in general parking, at parking meters and in disc parking areas. The laws do not extend to private car parks. If you park your car in a disabled personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parking space you are liable to a ďŹ ne of â&#x201A;Ź80 and you could be clamped or towed away.

A card does not entitle you to park anywhere and you must obey parking regulations. There are very strict rules from the EU in regard to the use of the card. The disabled person must be present and using the space. If there is abuse or misuse of the card, it will be withdrawn. Furthermore it is an offence to lend the card or allow any other person to use it without the disabled person being in the car. If a holder of the card is convicted he or she could be ďŹ ned up to â&#x201A;Ź3,000. I have found people using the card to their own advantage without the disabled person being present. This is disgraceful abuse. It is depriving another disabled person of a potential parking space. If you encounter any abuse, report it. The parking card can be used in all member States of the European Union.

sales@kilkennyreporter.ie

REPORTER WISHLIST THESE ARE A FEW OF OUR FAVOURITE THINGS.... WELLIES WORTH HUNTING BRING a little sunshine to a rainy Irish day with these bright and colourful wellies from http:// ie.schuh.co.uk. They are a shorter version of the original Hunter Wellington made famous by Kate Moss. They would make a great general use welly that would be perfect for walking the dog, shopping in the rain or dancing at a muddy festival! They are really nicely finished with a strap on the side for tightening them closer to the leg. Hunter wellies’ timeless design has won them iconic status and made them a must

have fashion statement. Get yours for €75 plus delivery.

DROP DEAD GORGEOUS THE shape of this drop dead gorgeous dress is taken from a 1950s dress found in a vintage hideaway in Hertfordshire in the UK. Recreated in satinized cotton spotty fabric – taupe and white or coral and white – it’s the ultimate hour-glass frock and brilliant for anyone with a slender waist. Available from www. silkandsawdust.com for €150.51 plus delivery, it is also available in light

brown and choral pink. Silk and Sawdust offer an amazing selection of clothes that combine vintage chic with a modern tweak. You can shop by item or by era from the 1930s right up to the 1970s and sizes range from XS to XL.

PUTTING IT STRAIGHT THIS new Frizz Ease product ‘3 days straight’ from John Frieda is getting a lot of press of late. It can transform curly, frizzy hair into a straight, smooth style that lasts up to three days or until your next shampoo, if less than three days. Designed to work with your hair straighteners, this weightless spray with heat protection blocks out frizz as you straighten. It contains a revolutionary blend of polymers with keratin protein that wraps each strand, sealing in straight style for up to three days. It also keeps hair glossy, smooth and swinging with body. Frizz Ease products are available from Boots and selected chemists.

LIFE’S A PICNIC TRADITIONAL picnic baskets are hard to come by and they don’t come much prettier than this. Dine in the outdoors in style with this wicker basket from www. dotcomgiftshop. com. It comes in two sizes £12.95 for the small and £24.95 for the large plus delivery. It would make an ideal wedding present for the couple who has everything or a nice treat for yourself if you intend picnicking with your kids or your husband or partner during the summer. Just pop some sandwiches, snacks, fruit, a drink and some napkins inside and you are good to go!

COMPLEXION PROTECTION SUN protection compact foundation from Shiseido combines great colour and coverage with an SPF 30. It means you can get out and enjoy the elements while also having peace of mind that you are looking after your skin. The convenient powder foundation smoothes on with a lightweight feeling and a natural matte look. It even resists perspiration and oil so it remains fresh and

colour true for hours. It’s ideal for those who don’t like to wear a heavy foundation during summer but still like to even out their complexion or add some warmth to their skin tone. Shiseido products are available in Kilkenny in O’Connell’s Chemist.

EIGHT HOUR MOISTURE ELIZABETH Arden’s ‘Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant’ is famous the world over for its miraculous ability to heal rough, dry or irritated skin. It’s a heavy duty moisturiser so sometimes throughout the day you need something with a little less punch. This is where ‘Eight Hour Moisturising Hand Treatment’ comes into its own. Although it feels lightweight and is quickly absorbed into the skin the effects are long lasting. Soothing emollients go to work almost straight away to recondition dry or cracked skin, leaving your hands velvety soft. It’s one of the hardest working handcreams you will find on the market today. Elizabeth Arden is available in Kilkenny in O’Connell’s Chemist and Sam McAuley.

SUMMER SPROUTING MOST beans can be sprouted but if you are new to sprouting you should start with mung beans. Dried mung beans are available in most supermarkets or health food stores. You can buy a special sprouter but really all you need is a glass jar with a piece of net secured to the top with an elastic. Place a layer of beans in the jar and cover with cool water for 12 hours. Drain and leave in an area that is out of direct sunlight but normal room temperature. Rinse your growing sprouts with cool water twice a day until ready to eat. Sprouts are not only highly nutritious and rich in enzymes they also taste great. Once harvested keep them in the fridge and add to salads or stir fries or just snack on them raw.

PEEL AWAY THE YEARS UNCOVER the skin you really want and look fabulous this summer with a Neostrata Performance Glycolic Peel. Recommended by dermatologists and clinically proven with regular treatments to refine pore size and smooth texture; visibly diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles; improve clarity and brightness; brighten and even skin tone; provide an all-over healthy glow, suppleness and smoothness to skin. So what are you waiting for? Get yourself down to Bliss Beauty, 4 Rose Inn Street, Kilkenny where the treatments costs €30 per peel or €150 for a course of six.

Faking it: Key products to achieve sun-kissed perfection

T

HE days of piling on layer after layer of fake tan in order to look as bronzed as possible are over. Pale is the look of the season but unfortunately very few people are blessed with blemish free porcelain skin. Most of us need a little help before we feel brave enough to bare our arms and legs to the elements. The key is to use just enough fake tan to even out the skin tone and give yourself a natural glow. Here are some of the best on the market.

Simply massage into dry, clean skin on a daily basis to keep your skin bronzed, smooth and soft. Apply liberally with hands to cover your face and body. Ensure even application and wash hands immediately after use. Gradual tans offer a great way to take the sting out of white skin without committing to a full-on tropical tan.

Devotees of the product say they love it because it is so easy to apply and doesn’t leave behind the typical fake tan stale biscuit smell. It is also ideal for people with sensitive skin and is approved by the Irish Eczema Society. This is well worth a try this summer if you hate loading your skin with chemicals or you are allergic to other products on the market. Just make sure you do a test patch somewhere small first.

To prevent a patchy result make sure you exfoliate first. Also, it’s a good idea to wear latex gloves to avoid staining your hands and to apply the lotion using sweeping strokes. A nice way to finish off the tan is to apply St Tropez Wash Off Instant Glow Shimmer Stick to the fronts of the legs, shoulders and décolletage to enhance the tan and give a subtle shimmer sheen. Available from chemists nationwide.

THIS product has become a staple among the selftanning pack and once you try it you will understand why.

old time style of the Appalachian Mountains, drawing on Irish traditional music and modern Americana. These are dark tales of debauchery and trouble swinging from the kind of well-crafted melodies that survive. ‘I Draw Slow’ play their first Kilkenny gig at Billy Byrnes Bar, 79 John Street on Saturday, May 14.

FILM HANNA Director Joe Wright EVERY so often a director makes a leap of imagination so daring compared to what he has done before that it amazes even himself. Joe Wright, famous for well regarded literary adaptations like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pride and Prejudiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Atonementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, has done this with the ďŹ nest thriller in years - â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hannaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Starring our very own Saoirse Ronan as the eponymous character we see her in the opening scene slaying a reindeer in an Arctic tundra. She is living here with her father cut off from civilisation so he can train her in secret for her mission - to kill Cate Blanchetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evil CIA operative. She will soon have to escape an army base and cross several borders while being chased by a sadistic hermaphrodite and his skinhead thugs. The ďŹ lm moves across several international locations from Morrocco, Spain and ďŹ nally Berlin. The audience genuinely never know what is going to happen next. She befriends a family of tourists and she realises what her life has been lacking. When she has to ďŹ ght again this places even more jeopardy in the situation since she has dragged these well meaning innocents into the sights of her enemies. Saoirse Ronan brought this script to Joe Wright and she must have seen parallels between her own strange life now in the spotlight and Hannaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hounded existence. She channels these emotions brilliantly and is utterly convincing in every frame with her striking gaze and subtle delivery of lines. She is no slouch either in the martial arts stakes and the breathtaking stunt work and ďŹ ghts are more exhilarating when you consider her age. One of the smartest choices he made was to surround her with generous actors who allow her the space to create this fantastic

character. Both Eric Bana as her father and Cate Blanchett as the villain have to stretch themselves to keep up with this prodigious talent but also allow her those moments to shine. The only bum note in the proceedings for me were the well meaning family who seemed a little cliched and their dialogue a bit obvious. This was easily compensated by the surrealism of the direction

which recalled David Lynch as much as the Bourne trilogy. Eschewing the handheld look of modern action movies each beautifully composed shot was ďŹ lled with odd details. Snowscapes and deserts never looked so strange while the stripbars and fairgrounds of Berlin were made into fairyland worlds. This was complimented by the woozy yet pounding score by The Chemical Brother who have

created the most original ďŹ lm music in a decade. Joe Wright has ďŹ nally announced himself  as an important director who like other British ďŹ lm makers recently is capable of that rarest of things - a critically acclaimed blockbuster. He has a ďŹ ne ally in Saoirse Ronan who has proved herself as the ďŹ nest performer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; either male or female to ever emerge from this country. Indeed there is no-one in the

acting profession on the planet at the moment who comes near this supernaturally talented girl for looks, intensity or technique. This movie is an exciting treat for anyone who wants a rollercoaster ride that will make you feel for its protagonists. You will also want to go see it again straight away or at the very least buy the cool soundtrack. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; DARRAGH BYRNE.

REPORTERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GUIDE TO â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;CYCLERSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BEGINNERSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; SPIN

T

he goal for the beginners spin is for participants to become able to complete the Tour de Kilkenny 109km event on the August Bank Holiday weekend, and even to complete the Sean Kelly 160km event at the end of August. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry if this seems daunting - with the correct training, everyone can become capable of achieving these targets. You will be encouraged to gradually build up to your target, while getting some fresh air on your own during the week. The club cycles in what is known as a chain-gang. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll cycle two abreast (it is illegal to be more than this), with everyone taking

turns at the front, which will be explained to you. When the road narrows or traffic increases, this changes to single ďŹ le. Being in group p formation means eans group cycling g etiquette needs to be observed, which means mastering skills like looking behind, braking, hand d signals and changing gears. rs. It is also important to make sure your bicycle is in proper working order, with tyres, brakes and gears all in good working order. To

be sure that your bike is working properly, the club encourages you to get it serviced by a mechanic. In order to be selfwhen you get sufficient w on you your bike, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also advised to bring these bri ke key pieces of eequipment: a multi-tool, ttyre levers, a m mini-pump aand spare tubes. These tu are all available in any good bicycle sshop. Also make sure to bring enough food and liquid with you: bananas, nutri grain bars and water are good options.
