The Kilkenny Connection

T

here is a strong connection, historically and currently, between the Bergin Family, owners of the Ponticelli Brand, and South Kilkenny. Stephen, who now lives just outside Mullinavat, is son of Mary Bergin (nee O’Neill) and Jimmy Bergin of Coolnaleen, Bigwood, a former Mullinavat goalkeeper. Stephen’s Grandfather was the legendary Garda Pat O’Neill, who was stationed practically all of his Garda life in Mullinavat. Pat joined the Garda Siochána at its inception from the East Clare Brigade of the Old I.R.A. His Garda No. was 275. Stephen received his secondary education at St. Kierans College and De La Salle College, Waterford.

for the successful operation of a Roastery. This experience is evident in the quality of Pontecelli Coffee, which now has the fastest growing Coffee Sales in the 26 Counties. Ponticelli is now available throughout the food service industry in Filling Stations, Deli’s, Coffee Shops, Cafés, Restaurants, Hotels and Pubs.

Stephen’s son, Mark has played a major part in setting up the Roastery in Waterford, from where it now services all of the Greater South East Area. Mark spent some time in Turkey, gaining all the knowledge and experience needed

Our retail packs of Gourmet, Continental and Viking Roast blends are available in both Fresh Ground and Wholebean form and will be available exclusively through your local Supervalu in the coming weeks.

Mark Bergin (above centre) is pictured with Ciaran Cullen, Waterford Enterprise Office and The Food Academy Start program, Thomas Caulfield, of Caulfields through the local Enterprise Office, and Supervalu, at the launch of the in conjunction with Musgraves, Bord Bia and Marla Communications provid- Ponticelli Retail Packs. ed an excellent platform for us to launch Ponticelli to the wider retail market. Mark found this programme to be both Educational and Helpful for small food companies on how to progress their products to the Supermarket Shelves.

Company Profile

Willoughby’s, serving Kilkenny since 1901

T

his year, Willoughby’s begins a brand new legacy as a new coffee shop and restaurant for our city, and the location is already showing itself to be one of Kilkenny’s finest. The mission statement of Willoughby’s is a simple one, in fact it is one so simple that I can’t believe more businesses don’t make an attempt at it. Willoughby’s just wants to be the best at what it does, to serve the best coffee, the best food, and have the best atmosphere of all the coffee shops and restaurants in the city. ‘It’s a high standard that we’re going for’ said Padraig Mahon, a proprietor of this new establishment as we sat over coffee and an open sandwich of smoked salmon, chives and cream cheese ‘Our speciality would be our food and our quality, all local and fresh everyday’. Willoughby’s

serves breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, their chef Owen Scanlon is accomplished in his field and strives for a new level of excellence with his food. ‘I’d highly rate Owen, Owen’s food is top quality’. The original building for Willoughby’s was constructed early in the 19th Century, though very little is known about this first incarnation and it was not until 1901 when the late John Willoughby took over that what we now think of as Willoughby’s began to take shape. The location was a jewellery and watch making workshop and one so famous in Kilkenny that even now, years after its closing those growing up are still aware of the jewellery store that was Willoughby’s and its long history in the county. A lot of effort went into its rebuilding, and the location is constantly in search for the foremost in all fields ‘We’re

putting a lot of money and a lot of time and effort into getting our staff to a high standard’ as Padraig said, ‘It’s hard to get good staff, we had to let a few go. They’re under pressure but sure, you can’t progress if you’re not under pressure’. We discussed Willoughby’s on an upstairs couch, surrounded by a cornucopia of curiosities from clocks to chandeliers to elaborate pottery figures, ‘everything in the shop is actually for sale’ according to Padraig, and with a grin ‘even the floors we can get you’. With this Willoughby’s functions as both a coffee shop, restaurant and gift shop; the location is bursting with items of simplicity and beauty that would enhance any home, though requests have often verged on the strange, as Padraig stated: ‘They’re mad about the paint colour, everyone’s looking for the paint colour’. And indeed, it is the

atmosphere that truly defines the Willoughby’s experience, it’s a place that you can just sit in an soak in over a long period of time, Padraig himself told me Willoughby’s is: ‘somewhere really to come and relax rather than to get in, get a coffee and get out, we’re not rushing people out. You’d probably sit on that couch for the day’. Willoughby’s has already proved itself as a success, when asked about how it had been going so far: ‘Business is flying. I’m very happy with it, it’s going very well. We’re getting good feedback, of course you get a bit of criticism, you can’t please everybody, but we learn from our criticism’. There are also plans to open another Willoughby’s sometime in the future in Waterford. The future once again looks bright for this ancient establishment.

Jerpoint towers over the rest! Did you know: Jerpoint Glass makes approximately 10,000 products a year? Uses 9 tonnes of raw material a year? Uses 40,000 litres of LPG Flogas., the Furnace burns 24/7 365 days a year at 1200 degrees celsius to keep the glass molten? Andâ&#x20AC;¦ It takes four days of making tall-squard vases to make the height of St Caniceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tower? Jerpoint makes roughly 26 metres of glass a day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 18cms average x32 pieces? In 12.5 days Jerpoint makes enough tall wine glasses that if stood on end would be the same height as Dublinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spire. Some 136 days making glass produces 1,038 metres in height of glass â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the same height as Carrantuohill.

Accelerating Kilkenny Business Start-ups Success (Opportunity is KNOCKING!!)

B

ank of Ireland, Ireland’s “Enterprise Bank” has launched a new national Accelerator Programme to support start-ups throughout the country. The programme is currently open for applications with ten places available and Bank of Ireland is encouraging all Kilkenny start-ups to apply for a place on the programme. Participants will receive €10,000 seed funding, input and guidance from some of Ireland and Europe’s leading mentors including Bill Liao and Sean O’Sullivan of SOS Ventures as well as Gavin Duffy of Dragon’s Den. The programme will be based in Cork and is open to SMEs throughout the country and all sectors. Gerry Prizeman, Head of Enterprise Development at Bank of Ireland and Bill Liao, Accelerator Programme mentor, have advice for those starting out in business. If you have a great idea, have spotted a gap in the market and are keen to start a new business, before you launch on the market, why not consider some of the key ingredients for success? 1. Strategy Every play for the market should have a strategy behind it. Your strategy defines how you will achieve your goals and measure success. Work out what internal and external factors will affect your business, and how to analyse and measure your efforts. Milestones are important to get a sense of progress and achievement. 2. Customer Traction Customer traction is when you start getting a response from customers and begin making those vital sales. Customer traction is one of the most difficult marketing challenges every start-up faces. You will need to understand your market, and its motivations. Just as importantly you need to create “your story” and be confident in

communicating it to customers and investors alike. 3. Product Differentiation There are very few products and services without competition so it’s important to differentiate your product somehow. It might be as simple as creative packaging, branding or offering extra features. Alternatively you could look at pursuing niche markets with less competition. Your unique selling proposition gives you an edge without necessarily offering a completely ‘unique’ product, but it does give people a reason to pick you over the competition. 4. Commitment Commitment means dedication in the face of many challenges. Knowing how to identify a problem quickly and adapt is a sign of a good entrepreneur. Get fully committed to your business, be a leader and share your vision with those you need to support you. It doesn’t mean just putting in long hours, but being committed to taking the steps to long term success by being smart and focusing on the right areas. Gerry Prizeman Head of Enterprise Development at Bank of Ireland commented. “We are committed to supporting startups and last year over 16,000 start-ups chose to bank with us. To further support start-ups we are seeking applications for our Accelerator Programme where they will get best in class mentoring from wellknown entrepreneurs such as Bill Liao and Sean O’Sullivan. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for start-ups to get a kick start for their business.” For more details or to apply for the Bank of Ireland National Accelerator Programme, visit www.bankofireland.com/accelerator. Closing date for applications is Friday, 25th July 2014.

According to The Watershed Chief Executive, Dermot Gaynor, â&#x20AC;&#x153;this is an exciting new venture for the Watershed and Airmax Inflatables, we are delighted to be working together to bring an innovative experience for families this summer in Kilkenny.â&#x20AC;? The adventure zone will be in the outdoor playing areas and will suit families of all ages; as young as two years old right up to the older teenagers. Mums and dads, aunts and uncles are all welcome to join in on the fun. Dermot Gaynor adds â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Adventure Zone is also transportable indoors if the good weather fails us.â&#x20AC;? The Adventure Zone will open every Saturday from 2pm to 6pm and every Sunday from noon to 5pm, commencing June 28th and continuing until the end of August. It will not be available for one weekend only as a major fundraising event for the Irish Cancer Society takes place at The Watershed from 3pm Saturday July 19th to 3pm Sunday July 20th. The Adventure Zone aims to be an affordable adventure for families, with no entrance fee, everyone can â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pay as you goâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with tokens purchased at reception. Watch out for the free tokens that The Watershed will be giving out to schools on their swim programme

and to children participating in The Watershedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s summer camps. The Watershed will also run competitions on social media and on local radio for wonderful family prizes and tokens for the Adventure Zone. Each token is worth â&#x201A;Ź1, some attractions will have a minimum token requirement and other attractions are free. After lots of fun at the new Adventure Zone families can further enjoy quality time at the state-of-the-art centre - which boast three swimming pools, a sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, fitness gym, badminton, basketball, football and unrivalled range of fitness classes. Since it opened in December 2008 annual footfall/visitors to the Watershed has now grown to 450,000. It has been awarded the prestigious White Flag Excellence Award every year.

)LOP -HUVH\%R\V So you’re planning on checking out Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of Jersey Boys. And why wouldn’t you? The smash-hit musical has been a Broadway staple since 2005, touring theaters from London to Las Vegas and claiming four Tony Awards – including Best Musical – in 2006. Interest in Jersey Boys, particularly from the theater crowd, should be high. Do this instead. Stay home. Light a candle -- preferably a beige or dishwater-grey candle – and watch it slowly melt for several hours. Play Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons records in the background to set the mood. This experience will be far more exciting than actually suffering through Eastwood’s disappointingly flavorless and lackluster on-screen Jersey Boys pass. Not that Eastwood has made a bad film. Rarely, over the course of his 50-plus years in the director’s chair,

%RUJPDQ Borgman begins by introducing us to men living in holes in the woods. Their peaceful existence is on borrowed time, however, as these vagrants are being hunted and flushed out, as creatures would be hunted by terrified townsmen (and a parish priest, of course) in a fable. This isn’t a distant past, though. It’s modern times, and Camiel Borgman (grungy Jan Bijvoet) – rooted from his terrestrial existence – heads to a familiar suburban location for shelter. He approaches the home of a nurse, Marina (Hadewych Minis), who pretends in front of her husband not to know this grimy stranger. Yet, they are connected by a mysterious past, which Borgman carefully unpacks with patience and a powerful taste for gallows humor. (The bodies in the lake, impossibly, are a hoot.) Who is this stranger? How does Marina know Borgman? And why is she seemingly in debt to this unwashed oddity? The man’s a gifted storyteller, spinning yarns to entertain Marina’s young children (even though he has promised to stay out of sight from her distrusting and abusive spouse). Is he weaving a massive yarn that somehow has pulled the wool over Marina’s eyes? Borgman is about as Euro-

pean as they come, and I mean that as a sincere compliment. Crystal-clear character motivations aren’t required, as van Warmerdam places enough faith in his audience that they will have the patience to ride out his vague storyline until a resolution presents itself. You can wonder about the scars on the backs of different charac-

ters, but their relevance won’t be reveled until van Warmerdam is good and ready. The director’s visual palette is dull, but the characters are colorful enough. Borgman burrows under our skins by being different. Ironically, the fact that it’s so different might scare the bulk of its potential audience away.

has Eastwood delivered an unquestionable bomb. But he has made a dull film, and that betrays the doo-wop energies and disgruntled behind-the-scenes dramas that helped make Jersey Boys such a beloved story for countless theater audiences. Do you know how musicals usually sizzle and pop, though? Jersey Boys never does. Never even attempts to. Eastwood’s color palette – conceived with longtime cinematographer Tom Stern (Gran Torino, Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven) – displays that usual, washed out look the director favors. As is usually the case in an Eastwood movie, scenes linger on longer than necessary. The direction is competent, but has so little creativity that when Eastwood finally tries something out of the ordinary – a camera shot that scales the side of a skyscraper and gives us a peek

inside various audition rooms – the irregularity briefly shook me out of the mundane coma Jersey Boys had lulled me into. Eastwood, more than anything, isn’t interested in remaking Jersey Boys, the musical. His film plays the story of the Four Seasons on a far more straight and literal line than the stage show, and doesn’t build to theatrical transitions or show-stopping musical numbers. The only time Jersey Boys resembles a show that started in stage is in the end credits, when the cast reunites on a sound-stagey neighborhood “street” for an up-tempo montage of he musical’s hits. Yet even at the very end, Eastwood freezes his cast in awkward poses before fading to black, leaving them looking like curious wax figures waiting to melt. And we’ve come full circle.

Business of the week Adventure Zone at The Watershed The Watershed is the South-East’s largest leisure centre and on the 28th June the will be opening up a brand new facility for the summer called Adventure Zone that guarantees hours of family fun. The adventure zone is full of things to do from obstacle courses to bubble

soccer to a 35-foot climbing wall, as well as much more. Adventure Zone will be on until the end of August on Saturdays from 2pm to 6pm and Sundays from noon to 5pm, if you are or have children who are anywhere from two to an older teen I recommend the Adventure Zone.

Show of the week A Night at the Movies On Sunday the 29th June at the Watergate Theatre Grainne Mulvey School of Ballet and Modern Dance will be presenting A Night at the Movies. Students from 3-18 from Bagenalstown and Kilkenny will

perform a variety of dances from films throughout the years, showcasing primarily ballet and jazz styles. It is promised to be a nice night out for a family; it will be on 7:30PM to 9:30PM and cost €12/6.

Book of the week The Goldfinch The Goldfinch is the newest book by American Author Donna Tart and was her first in 11 years following 2002’s The Little Friend. The book begins with our main character, 13 year old

Theo Decker, who after miraculously surviving an accident that kills his mother, is taken in by the family of a wealthy friend. He spends the next few years of his life in misery and is drawn into the world of art

by his only reminder of his mother, a Dutch painting called The Goldfinch. It’s a long book and very old fashioned but it is endlessly engaging and captivating, the kind of book one stays up all night to read.

TV of the week Fargo Fargo has just wrapped up its first (possibly only since it’s a miniseries) season and with it, established the show as one of the best currently on TV and a worthy successor to the 1996 movie. The show’s main characters are Martin

Freeman’s Lester Nygaard and Allison Tolman’s Molly Solverson and their time in Bemidji during a massive murder spike that Nygaard is a part of and Solverson is investigating; though the real star of the show is Billie Bob Thornton’s Lorne Malvo,

Song of the week Stranded Mermaid- My Last Summer on Earth Stranded Mermaid are a Swedish band that make dark, poppy folk music that takes inspiration from Spaghetti Western Soundtracks and 60s Surf Rock, they’re latest single is titled My Last Summer on Earth and is an interesting take on the influences and adds a certain eeriness that was not apparent

on their earlier material. The song structure is simple, for the most part just an acoustic guitar and vocals with minimal lyrics, the singer, Louis L, is usually quite high pitched but this aspect is deemphasised on this song. The song is highly suitable for a summer night, I recommend it.

some sort of prankster god that sweeps in and causes chaos wherever he travels. The show is full of surrealism and zaniness in grand Coen brothers tradition but is definitively its own creature and can stand on its own two feet.

Lifestyle & Living Wasteland 2 The original Wasteland was a highly innovative game, released in 1988 the game was deeper, darker and better than anything the world of video games had ever seen before, its development is directly responsible for Fallout nine years later and its legacy endures to the

extent that a sequel was fan funded on kickstarter back in 2012. The game is set in postapocalyptic America and is a turn based game, little is known about the plot of Wasteland 2 now, the game is set to be released in August, I am personally looking forward to this and I hope you all are too.

App of the week Dots: A Game about Connecting Not a new app by any means but the game that is Dots, available for android and apple, is such an insatiably addictive game that it deserves a spot, and it’s free. The game gives you sixty seconds to connect as many dots as possible, once you connect dots they disappear and more descend onto the screen, the objective is to connect as many dots as possible. It seems the only prerequisite for

a phone game to be a success is that it be addictive and something you can pick up and drop at any time and Dots is both of those, but the game is little else other than addictive. Half of the trick of doing well in dots is luck, for any colour can drop from the sky and if you aren’t lucky you won’t be scoring any large combinations. So the game is fun but that’s it, worth a try.

Film of the week The Fault in Our Stars Chances are you’ve already decided whether to see this film or not, in fact anyone who was going to see it probably saw it on Day 1 and followed it up with a multi-hour stretch on Tumblr. The film is based on the insatiably popular

and critically acclaimed novel of the same name by John Green about a cancer stricken teenage girl who falls in love with a former Basketball start turned amputee. Unfortunately the direction of Josh Boone is no match for the writing of Green and the

plot sometimes deviates into the mawkish and the melodramatic, something the book did a good job of avoiding, so it can’t match the book but The Fault in Our Stars is still a fun teen movie that’s worth seeing if you enjoy the material.

DVD of the week Non Stop Non-Stop is a new thriller film starring Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore in the most pure fun movie to come out on DVD so far this month. Neeson now has a traditional of playing the strong older masculine type in films and NonStop is no exception; he plays an air Marshall on a commercial flight who is sent a text stating that someone on the flight

Album of the Week CunninLynguists- Strange Journey Vol. 3 CunninLynguists are one of the most consistent hip-hop groups around and have been releasing both fun and provocative material regularly since 2001, their material can be said to be rooted in the traditions of Southern hip-hop (dance influenced beats, straightforward

lyrics, and a general more pop oriented approach) and the sound is very relaxed and fun. The emcees are great as always but the best part of CunninLynguists is still the amazing production, from the first listen this album is fantastic to listen to and it’s a perfect album for summer.

will die every twenty minutes until $150 million is transferred into a specific bank account. It’s a good premise for an action movie and NonStop does enough with it that you are never bored throughout the film’s 106 minutes; for anyone wanting a no-nonsense thriller to get lost in this week I recommend NonStop.

Charming, elegant, stylish, romantic and merger-making Libra Your ruling planet is Venus, your best day of the week is Friday and your colours are gentle hues of blues, pinks and violets. Pluto’s passage through Capricorn until 2024 is shaking your very foundations. Mesmerising, insightful, determined, resourceful and focused Scorpio Your ruling planets are Mars and Pluto, your best day of the week is Tuesday and your colours deep, deep red and black. Saturn is moving through your sign until late 2014. View this as a long period of self-investment. True, you may need to ‘throw a wobbly’, you might also have reason to doubt the integrity of someone who’s professing passion for a job but whom you feel is not up to the task in hand. A major problem here is that you may need to take on more responsibility if a calamity is to be averted. A roughly decade-long cycle begins again this week. Thirst for learning and for adventure will surely increase. This could be driven by financial need: awareness that if you improve your knowledge base you could command greater earnings. Quirky, determined, logical, eccentric and freedom-loving Aquarius. Your ruling planets are Saturn and Uranus. Your best day of the week is Saturday and your best colours are electric or deep, rich blue and anything metallic. Saturn is passing through another of the Fixed signs, Scorpio until late 2014. Intuitive, sensitive, big-picture thinking, kind and thoughtful Pisces. Your ruling planets are Jupiter and Neptune. Your best day of the week is Thursday and your best colours are those of the sea: blue, green, lavender and silver. Slow moving Neptune is in your sign through to 2024.

In Castlecomer with Chubby Brennan Calling all Brennans and Malones

Blast from the past...

DELIGHTED to publish an epistle from a good women called Ruth Cawley who is tracing relatives. Dear Chubby, I would be grateful if you would print this in the Kilkenny Reporter. Someone could have info for me. My dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sister Milsey married a Mick Brennan. They had lots of children and one son was called Gerard. Milsey was a Malone before she married Mick and my mother always spoke highly of Mick. The Malones came from Kilkenny and Mick and Milsey moved to Cork, I believe. My dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents lived in Wolfe Tone Street, Francis Terrace and Dean Street    My dad was born in 1918. His brothers were Ber Tony, Joe; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only info I got. I believe my grandmother Mary was a teacher and my grandfather Andrew was a gardener/beekeeper for the nuns. Not a lot of info really, is there? Moral of the story is listen more to your parents.   Anyone with possible links or information please contact Chubby Brennan, chubbybrennan@eircom.net.

Gold for Joe Congrats to Joe Walsh, Castlecomer who represented â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Comer and Leinster at the recent Special Olympics in Limerick. Joe participated in the fast walking over two difficult courses. He won gold and bronze Well done Joe from all your friends in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Comer and your mates and staff in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Comer SOS.

Gymkhana time  Ballyfoyle Gymkhana is on Sunday, June 29. This is a great family day out. There will be a
