Our Team Local News

Is it time to get involved in your community?

Editor E. communitylocalseditor@gmail.com

At this time of the year we love to get out and about. We visit beaches, drive around beauty spots and have picnics as the good weather brightens our days. This is a time to enjoy with our families and friends whether it is in this country or abroad. However after the holidays, long weekends, city breaks or whatever are over, we will have to return to the reality of everyday living in this community. We are known throughout the world for our generosity of spirit and our kindness and caring philosophy on life. However every year brings its new challenges and this Summer and Winter will be no exception. We are now in an era where the community and voluntary sector will be called upon more and more and we will be called upon to support such organisations. Whenever anyone says such things we generally think of giving what we can to a worthy cause but what about joining the hundreds of volunteers who give so generously of their time to help others? What about helping to care for those less fortunate than ourselves, those who for one reason or another cannot help theselves? We are a community based magazine group who have been publishing magazines across Fingal in Balbriggan, Lusk, Swords, Malahide and Donabate/Portrane for many years. During that period we have had close contact with hundreds of Community and Voluntary groups Charitable and Sporting organisations from all these areas. Some of us have worked in community based organisations and that is why we appreciate the efforts of those involved. Those who give up their time for no gain to feed the hungry, or care for those who are mentally or physically disabled or spend time coaching a sport they enjoy? Those people get a satisfaction and peace of mind that feels like nothing else they will ever be involved in. It is not about their ego. Instead it is about giving of themselves in order to help others without looking for praise or reward. So as your holidays this summer draw to a close why not review how you use your spare time and maybe it will be time for you too to get involved in your community. In the meantime enjoy the month of June and your hols!

The Ned and Máire Maguire Perpetual Trophy We would like to congratulate Tommy Murray of Derham Park, Balbriggan, Co Dublin who is the recipient of this years Ned and Máire Maguire Perpetual Trophy. Back in 1986 our Guide Dogs branch formed and began fundraising. One of our biggest fundraisers was a sponsored walk in the late 80’s to 90’s and one couple who did the walk every single year was Ned and Máire Maguire from Delahasey just outside Balbriggan. The couple would go door to door with their sponsor card and inform people of what a guide dog was and what they did. This was long before we could spread the word with a simple text via mobile phone or by sharing a post on social media. They were doing the work that social media does today and getting the word out there. So, when Ned and later Máire passed away, a trophy was sourced, featuring a mother with a litter of puppies. It is named after them to reflect the extraordinary commitment they gave to our branch. The trophy is given annually to someone or some business that does something that stands out in the past year to help our branch. This year we were delighted to award it to Tommy Murray who joined our branch in the late 80’s and has given over 30 years of service to us, including but not limited to, helping at dog walks, emptying counter boxes, church gates, selling Christmas cards and calendars to name a few. We extend our congratulations to Tommy and thank him for all he has done for our branch. If you want to support our Branch, you can find us at Summerfest in Quay Street Car Park, Balbriggan on Sunday the 5th of June from 10am – 6pm. If you would like to join our Branch or become a volunteer? You can contact us by phone or text on 085 7663107. You can also email or contact us on Facebook at GuideDogsBalbriggan@gmail. com.

Fathers Day gifts and summer camps

By Siobhan O’Neill White Whether it’s your Dad, Grandad, Daddy, Father-in-law, StepDad, husband, partner or a special father figure, Father’s Day on Sunday 19th June is the day to celebrate these wonderful men. We’re cooking dinner for my Dad as a treat but no matter how good dinner is, he’ll still proclaim that our roast potatoes aren’t as good as his! His roasters are famous around Balbriggan (according to him anyways!) Need some gift inspiration for the Dads? We can help….For guys who like sweets, the retro sweet hamper from Hampers & Co, a Clontarf based company is only €12. They also have Movie night in , Gourmet Wine, Fancy Cheese, Craft Beer and our favourite, The Dude hamper! Use promo code Mums12 for 12% off any of their cool hampers. If your Dad likes to exercise or is fond of casual wear, Irish brand Gym+Coffee, have cool shorts, t-shirts, hoodies etc. They’re super comfy and come in a wide range of colours. Thinking of getting him a gift voucher? Best Menswear is ideal. They have a great range of clothing from casual to smart. My husband is a big fan, so we’ll definitely be going there! If you prefer to pick him up a gift, Dealz have lots of goodies from only €1.50. If he loves Gadgets and gizmos, Hoco and Gadget Geek in Ilac

SC are brill. And of course, there’s the LFC store for Liverpool fans! Check out mams.ie for gift giveaways, like hampers and Spotlight Oral Care gift sets. June is also time for summer camps. If your child is starting secondary school in September or going into 2nd or 3rd year, we highly recommend a new, clever and innovative summer camp called ‘Inside Out’. This fun camp includes a balance of physical, mental and creative challenges to help prepare kids for secondary school, particularly the emotional challenges they will face there. Ideal for 12-14 year olds, this camp is being hosted in the gorgeous, lush grounds of Gormanston Park. Places are limited, to register your interest, please go to insideoutcamps.ie/register/ It’s wonderful to see Inside Out camps taking a proactive approach to mental health, as these children navigate the stresses of school and today’s fast paced, social media laden, over whelming world. For more Father’s Day ideas and information on summer camps, please visit mams.ie . Shortlisted for Golden Spider Award & Infant & Maternity Award.

Fingal News

Groups like St Maur’s Pipe Band to receive much needed funding

St Maur’s Pipe Band

Fingal’s Local Community Development Committee (LCDC) has approved over €300,000 in grant funding to community and voluntary groups across the county under the 2022 Community Activities Fund (CAF). Funded by the Department of Rural and Community Development, the 2022 scheme was launched nationally by the Minister for Rural and Community Development, Heather Humphreys TD, and the Minister of State with responsibility for Community Development and Charities, Joe O’Brien TD.Over 200 grants will be paid to groups across Fingal under the scheme. This will help with running costs such as utility bills, insurance and in some cases rental or leasing

costs. They will also be supported with funding to carry out necessary repairs and improvements to their facilities, and the purchase of equipment such as defibrillators, furniture, tools. signage, laptops, printers, lawnmowers, canopies, among others. The Community Activities Fund provides a flexible and targeted approach to funding those communities most in need. The fund is aimed at addressing disadvantage, as identified in the Fingal Local Economic and Community Plan and also at this time supports local community and voluntary groups with reopening costs resulting from COVID-19. Mayor of Fingal Cllr. Seána Ó Rodaigh, welcomed the large number of grants approved, saying: “The Community

Activities Fund provides invaluable support to a broad range of organisations, particularly at a time when operating costs for many groups are rising sharply. The amount of funding made available reflects the vital role played by those groups making a real impact on the ground right across Fingal, be it community centres, Scouts and Guides, childcare providers, sports clubs, support services for older people or drama societies.” Mary Harford, Group Leader of the 89th Bremore Scout Group said: “The grants will enable us to buy much needed equipment for our young people and will also help us cover our operating costs for the year without worrying where the money will come from.”

Community organisations -We are here for you and it’s free! Calling all community and voluntary groups in this area! We are here to facilitate you and help publicise your organisations. We are a community based magazine therefore there will be no charge for publicising your group, whether its a chess club or small pastime group, a support group or a big community or sporting organisation.

Day For Night stands test of time!

VOLUNTEERS WANTED PHOTOGRAPHERS LOCAL WRITERS LOCAL REPORTERS NEEDED!! If you’re a Local and have some free time please email us on: communitylocals@gmail.com

By Jack Shanley Almost 50 years after it was made, ‘Day For Night’ truly stands the test of time. Screened last month at the Irish Film Institute (IFI), the classic, directed by the great French new wave director Francoise Truffaut, is one of his finest achievements.It tells the story of a committed film director struggling to finish his movie with several unexpected troubles, both personal and professional, affecting the cast and crew.It’s an entertaining romance drama about the struggle, the love and passion of the amazing craft we call filmmaking. Truffaut asks the powerful question: ‘Is cinema more important than life?’ ‘Day For Night’ is essentially about making movies with a romance story built within it, but more than that, it’s a love letter to cinema, a craft in which Truffaut devoted his life to. He once said ‘it was his own reason for living’. It’s an affectionate film with Truffaut starring as an ambitious director committed to his craft. Quite funny and charming, it takes you into the strenuous world and selfish mind of a film director. American film director Brian De Palma, a great admirer of Truffaut, was so influenced by the opening titles, designed by Michel Francois, that he used a very similar opening title for his film ‘Blow Out’ released in 1981, replacing the orchestra with screams and a beating heart. ‘Day For Night’ also has a remarkable soundtrack, scored by the effortlessly talented Georges Delerue who, through his music, gave the film this wonderful sense of hope which is essentially all that a film director really has. Overall, ‘Day For Night’ is a beautifully crafted depiction of what a film director truly is. I give it a score of four stars as it makes you adore cinema just that little bit more.

The reason I say this is nutritious is because it contains nuts which are full of protein, healthy fats, fibre, minerals such as magnesium, manganese, phosphorus and vitamins such as vitamin E and some B vitamins. It also contains dark chocolate, made of at least 70% cocoa, which is known to be high in antioxidants including heart healthy flavonols.

The St Sylvester’s U15 boys have achieved a first in the Club’s living memory by winning both Football and hurling Féile competitions they competed in this year. In Division 2 football, the team coasted through their games meeting Clontarf (Round 1), OPER (Rd 2), St Vincents (Round 3) before a strong challenge of Templeogue away in the semis to qualify for the final v Castleknock at O’Toole Park.The boys showed the benefit of the hard work throughout the season with an impressive display & winning Contact us:communitylocalseditor@gmail.com

4-9 to 1-5. It was a well-deserved Championship win for a talented team that has fight to full strength following a huge number of injuries last year that ruled them out of the top division. No doubt that they’ll be back with a vengeance in the Division 1 league! In Division 3 hurling, the team welcomed a new coaching team of three from the Syls senior team, Daniel Murphy, Conor Hoyne & Sean Murphy who have worked well with the lads to develop their team dynamic. The boys won all

3 rounds versus Kevins (R1) Whitehall (R2), Skerries Harps (Rd 3) to meet Erins Isle in the semifinals and win 4-14 to 1-6. The final, held at Broomfield was a close game until halftime with a draw 0-6 to 1-3 but the Syls boys rallied and triumphed with the final score 2-12 to 2-4. As is tradition, both teams paraded the winning cups over the bridge from Bridgefield and to the Clubhouse after each win to a delighted membership waiting to congratulate them MALAHIDE LOCAL-JUNE 2022
