A SECOND elected representative from Fine Gael in a month has said the time has come for the chairman of Save Navan Hospital to step down following a row over political interference. Sinn Fein TD Peader Toibin has come under attack from County Councillor Suzanne Jamal who says for the sake of the campaign he should go. However Deputy Toibin has said publicly he will not step down as long as the campaign supports him, and hit out at those calling for his head. “Deputy Toibin himself appeared in last week’s media, appealing to elected representatives to put the people and the hospital ďŹ rst,â€? said Cllr Jamal. “He needs to lead by example and allow a nonpolitical person to take over as chairperson in the interests of the people, the hospital and the campaign in going forward.â€? She continued: “His position as chairman and being politically afďŹ liated to a party is doing damage to the cause. I urge Deputy Toibin to step aside as chairman but continue to use his political leverage in Dail Eireann to ďŹ ght the cause of Our Lady’s Hospital.â€?. However Peader Toibin has reiterated that he will be staying on as chairman, pointing to the carrying of a vote of conďŹ dence in his leadership at the last hospital meeting. “I am seriously disappointed at the disregard Cllr Jamal has for the Hospital Campaign. Not two weeks ago at a packed meeting of the Save Navan Hospital Campaign the secretary of the campaign proposed a vote of conďŹ dence in myself as chair. “The membership of the campaign voted

overwhelmingly to support me in my continued role as chair. Indeed not one person out of the 120 people in the room voted against me. I was supported by members of Fianna FĂĄil, Fine Gael, Labour and those who are of no party. Indeed the campaign has an excellent working relationship with senior elected reps from Fine Gael. The last press statement which was released by me I formulated in tandem with Deputy English. “Many of us who founded the campaign and who have done the heavy lifting are astounded that Cllr Jamal would seek to force her way into what was an already agreed delegation to the minister and then in a huff try to overturn the democratic wishes of the campaign. These attacks in the newspapers are loud hailer diplomacy and negative politics. If Cllr Jamal was for real she would have raised these issues at a campaign meeting or called me to discuss her concerns. At no time has she attempted to do so. The overall effect of her actions is to weaken the campaign. These attacks are music to the ears of those in the HSE who seek to remove services from the hospital. “Cllr Jamal was happy to support me as chair when Fianna Fail was in government. Now that it is our job to hold a Fine Gael minister to account, Cllr Jamal is no longer happy to allow a united campaign to function. I can’t go any easier on a Fine Gael minister than I did with Mary Harney. It’s interesting to note that other Fine Gael elected reps have been chairpersons of other Hospital Campaigns throughout the state. It would be sadly ironic if Cllr Jamal who stood for the council on the hospital ticket in 2009 ended up splitting the campaign and weakening our chance of maintaining our hospital.â€?

Ain’t no mountain high enough for Navan hikers ONE OF the toughest mountain challenges in Europe to take place next month will be contested by two teams from Navan in aid of the charity Oxfam. The challenge takes place over the Mourne Mountains and Cooley Moutains and sees teams choose between a 50 or 100 kilometre route that has to be completed in just two days. Representing Navan will be John Wilson, Mark Flynn, Ray O’Connor and Wayne Moore who are together known as the Pram Pushers. Mark told The Meath Herald that they have been gearing up for the challenge through grueling training sessions. “We have been in the Mourne Mountains and are going to do the Tain Trail walk. We have also been running and jogging.” The pram pushers will take part in the 100km circuit, but Mark says they are not daunted. “It is 100 kilometres over two days. Some people do it straight and treat it as a sporting challenge but we are taking longer because it is for charity.”

Since TrailTrekker began in 1981 in Hong Kong, over 32,000 teams (128,000 individuals) have collectively walked over 11.5 million kilometres (the same distance as walking around the world 287 times!), becoming great ambassadors for Oxfam’s work and raising over €70 million. Trailtrekker is now in its third year in Ireland and over the past two years it raised over €700,000 towards Oxfam Ireland’s work, helping to make real and practical differences to the lives of people in the developing world. €700,000 is the equivalent of Oxfam Ireland’s entire livelihoods programme spend in Malawi and Uganda in 2010. These programmes include everything from supporting projects that increase agricultural production in sustainable ways, addressing the consequences of climate change, strengthening access to markets for small scale producers, especially women and working with people affected by HIV and Aids.

Trim Swim Star Goes Continental A TRIM based endurance swimmer is gearing up for his biggest challenge yet when he will take to the water to swim from England to France. If successful John Downes will be one of only 45 Irishmen ever to complete the feat and also one of the oldest at the age of 47. The father of four has already completed a number of grueling outdoor open water swims but this, he admits, will be his toughest challenge yet as it is almost 50km in one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. “It’s definitely the toughest thing I’ve done,” he said, adding that most people didn’t understand what doing such a feat entailed. “You swim in an ‘S’ shape because you can’t swim through the current so, to a certain extent, you

have to swim with it.” He said the tide is also a major factor. “First, you are pushed north, then south in the middle, then north again nearing Calais (and) that can be fairly vicious if you haven’t thought it through.” He says the dangers are real. “A lad from Waterford made the attempt but pulled up within a mile from hypothermia. That’s the cruel part of the challenge, you could be 50 yards from the shore and not make it.” John will be competing in the challenge sometime between August 7 and August 14 weather depending. He is doing it to raise money for the Irish Down’s Syndrome swimming team and Temple Street Children’s Hospital.

John Downes charity fundraiser in Trim GAA club which was held on Saturday 23rd July 2011. €2,500 was raised for Down Syndrome Ireland sporting organisation and Temple St. Childrens Hospital.

Full Steam Ahead for Kells Pink Ribbon Walk 2011 IT IS all systems go for the third annual Kells Pink Ribbon Walk, which takes place on Saturday, September 3rd this year. Together with its sister walk in Killaloe, the Kells Pink Ribbon Walk has raised over €300,000 for Action Breast Cancer, a programme of the Irish Cancer Society. A further walk is planned for Kinsale in Co. Cork in 2012. Pink Ribbon Walk Chairperson Penny McGowan recently announced that Specsavers has come on board as a lead sponsor of the Pink Ribbon Walk. Specsavers in Navan kicked off their fund-raising drive at an in-store ‘Pink Fun Day’ on Friday, July 25th, where over €450 was raised. Staff members gave away spot prizes throughout the day and took turns on the in-store treadmill, doing their bit to raise funds for the Pink Ribbon Walk. “We were delighted with the public’s response on the day,” says Kerril Hickey, partner in the Specsavers stores in Navan, Mullingar and Drogheda. “Our customers really enjoyed the atmosphere in the store and because everyone knows someone who’s been affected by breast cancer, people are very generous when they see that you’re collecting for the Pink Ribbon Walk.” Kerril is planning Pink Fun Days in aid of the Kells Pink Ribbon Walk in Specsavers stores in Drogheda (date to be confirmed) and Mullingar

(Friday, August 12th). And each store will be entering a team for the Walk. “As an employer, I see the Walk as a great way of building team spirit among my staff and giving them a fun day out, all for a great cause,” he says. “I’d encourage all employers to get their staff involved in the Walk.” The Loft Restaurant in Navan and Flo Web Design in Kells are other businesses who have already committed to entering a team. Over 600 men and women took part in the event last year. The 2011 Kells Pink Ribbon Walk takes place on Saturday, 3 September, with the 10km run setting off at 2.45pm and the walk scheduled to start at 3pm. Once again, the Walk will follow a scenic looped route, starting at Drewstown House and taking in the unique and beautiful Girley Eco Bog Walk. For those interested in the cross-country run, personal trainer Liam Newman is planning some training events on the Drewstown/Girley Bog over the coming weeks. Please check the website for further updates and details. All money raised in sponsorship from the Pink Ribbon Walks goes directly to Action Breast Cancer to fund local and national services for people who have been affected by breast cancer You can register online for the Kells Pink Ribbon Walk at www.pinkribbonwalk.ie or pick

up a registration form in Navan at Specsavers, and in Kells at Supervalu, the Headfort Arms Hotel, Dunnes The Premier House and the Kells Chamber of Commerce office. The registration fee is €20. Anyone who would like to volunteer to help in the run-up or on the day of the Pink Ribbon Walk should get in touch with the organisers. News just in! All participants registered by Friday, August 19th will be entered in to a free draw to win

The Academy of Performing Arts

To Advertise 087 316 7013 or email: meathheraldads@gmail.com

THERE ARE not many activities out there that instil confidence in a child, a sense of pride in their achievement and encourage and foster their talent or skill all while they are having fun! That’s exactly what The Academy of Performing Arts aims to do and with 300 students attending classes in three venues in Meath every week, the team are obviously fulfilling their objective! Sheila Garvey set up the academy seven years ago having embarked on a successful career in the arts travelling the UK and America performing in shows like as ‘La Cage Aux Folles’, ‘Bugsy Malone’, ‘42nd Street’, ‘Westside Story’, ‘The Boyfriend’, ‘Carmen’, ‘Oklahoma’ and many more. Sheila started dancing at the age of three and is fully trained in dance, drama, theatre studies and fitness. “We offer professional tuition in singing, dance and drama to students aged 3-18 years in Navan, Ratoath and Kells. In dance we teach Hip hop, Tap and Jazz and we cover all area of drama, including speech, audition technique and over all confidence building,” says Sheila. We are currently enrolling for our forthcoming term commencing 1st September. For further details please contact the office on 046 9073554. LAMDA Accolade As well as the fun and excitement of classes, students also take annual exams with LAMDA (London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art) in musical theatre (singing) and drama. “We have just received the results of recent exams and yet again another 100% of students passed with many of them receiving

distinctions,” says Sheila. “There is always something to look forward to at the academy like our shows or plays. It gives the students an opportunity to perform in front of a large audience and we spend a lot of time rehearsing and working as a team. Our classes are fantastic for building confidence, developing life skills and are great source of fitness for children,” says Sheila. Summer Camp

On August 8th - 12th The Academy of Performing Arts will run a summer camp in the Solstice Arts Centre from

10am

– 2pm for the unbelievable price of €59. The summer camp

is an ideal way to give your child a taste of performing classes as well as being a week packed full of fun.

Sheila is hoping to build her own studio at the rear of her

fancy dress & party premises “Bananas” on Railway Street explaining that a sole location for her academy would have

many benefits. “It would be amazing to have our own base to

access our costume rail for shows, to have professional dance floors, mirrored studios and allow us to hold a larger variety of classes for adults and children”

Sheila also has an agency giving people of all ages the

opportunity to audition for TV shows, commercials and films.

The academy has been hugely successful having featured in

an array of RTE shows, films, pantos, radio and even a number of high profile commercials.

Council appeal over outstanding rates BUSINESSES IN Trim have been urged to come and speak to the council if they think they may struggle to meet their rates bill. Town Clerk Brian Murphy said 141 reminders had been sent out that bills were overdue. There rare 262 rateable businesses in the town. “Any businesses who are facing difficulties should talk to us so we could work out a plan for payment.” Fianna Fail Cllr Ronan McKenna said he wanted local traders to know that any elected representative could also be contacted to facilitate negotiations with the council. Brian Murphy said he wanted to reiterate that

they were approachable and flexible repayment terms were on offer. “We can be flexible and are happy to arrange terms with businesses in a way that suits them. Payment can be made weekly by standing order, or in the Post Office or even over the phone by Laser or debit card. Payments can be made in instalments. “When the rate demands were issued in February the option was there to spread the payments over a longer period. The time period is now shorter but I would encourage traders to get in contact,” he said.

IONA COLLEGE was established by Brenda Keyes in 2004 to raise the standard of training in healthcare. At the time Brenda operated St Colmcilles Nursing Home in Kells and identified the need for professional training for carers. Brenda has pursued her own professional development to Masters of Education level and has wide experience of healthcare in Ireland, the UK and Australia. Drawing on that experience Brenda identified a demand for qualified carers, professionally trained to work in the healthcare sector. Iona College has achieved sustainable growth and development since 2004. Training courses have been expanded from Healthcare into Childcare, IT, and Business Studies and Train the Trainer. As part of this development Iona College have expanded their facilities at our new premises at Bective St Kells and at the state of the art Kells Enterprise & Technology Centre in Kells Business Park. The provision of ITEC beauty courses is a new departure for 2011 working in conjunction with Iona Beauty Rooms. The ITEC Diploma provides students with a professional qualification that is widely recognized. Director Brenda Keyes commented “While we provide courses throughout the North East, North West Dublin and the Midlands, as a native of Kells I want to see the town develop as a centre of excellence in vocational training and education. The excellent transport services to the town make it an ideal location to be an education hub. With this in mind a range of PLC courses are being offered once again in September 2011. The current high demand for college places is making it more difficult for students to move directly to third level. FETAC level 5 Major Awards provide school-leavers with a very attractive alternative and a stepping stone to university. Providing these courses in Kells helps keep down the cost to

families who have many financial demands on them.” Iona College holds FETAC Accreditation and is affiliated to the following organizations / certifying bodies FAS, OFAAA, Irish Heart Foundation, Irish Institute of Training and Development, ECDL. “The current economic difficulties present major challenges for people particularly those of all ages who are seeking work.” Brenda continued. “At Iona College we work with each individual learner to enable them to reach their potential. There is nothing more satisfying than to see a person starting a new career having completed one of our courses. We teach the skills and the knowledge but most importantly we encourage people to adopt a positive attitude to themselves and their future. That is the key to success! Iona College’s support for students starts with our Personal Career Planning Service - a road map to success. Throughout Iona courses learners are fully supported in completing assignments and assessments. We are conscious that as well as school-leavers, many of our learners are returning to education and that can be quite daunting. More than 60% of learners move into employment and many more to further education. While there are many opportunities in the North East, the FETAC Award is a qualification recognized throughout the EU and further afield. “I know from my own career that working abroad provides very valuable experience. Our FETAC Awards are the passport to help people gain employment throughout Europe and the English speaking world.” Brenda concluded.

The Meath Herald August 2011 Page 33

The rise and rise of Oliver Cole IT’S DIFFICULT to imagine how the record label bosses reacted to Kells singer/songwriter Oliver Cole when he told them he would prefer not to gig his first solo album. Were it a disaster perhaps they wouldn’t have minded, but ‘We Albatrai’ garnered five star reviews across the board. But according to Oliver, he had already moved on and was preparing for the second LP. An original member of the band Turn, the songs on ‘We Albatrai’ dealt with the break-up of the three-piece as well as the ending of a ten year relationship with his girlfriend. So while he was much in demand to play the tracks live, Oliver says he wasn’t keen. “It was a great album for me to put out and get out of my system and it got great reviews. EMI and everyone was trying to pressurise us into gigs but I backed away from it. We did do a tour but I had spent the last three or four years making it and was over it.” So was it about getting over the past and moving on? “I think it was. The songs and lyrics were dealing with the break-up of the band which was a big change, and I had a ten year relationship break up all within ten months of each other. I didn’t really enjoy playing it live – I had a weird lack of confidence about it.” So far from dealing with the clichéd ‘difficult second album’, Oliver has thrown himself into the task and as recording draws to a close, is looking forward to taking it on the road. “Doing this record now is a most enjoyable process. On the last record I was working in the studio in a band situation – I had Graham Hopkins from The Frames on the drums and Gavin (Fox) who was in Turn on the bass. This time though I love the fact that I have done it all myself.” Coming off the back of productions with a much loved band and a highly rated debut solo album, you would be only human to have some thought on how the press will receive your next production. But as a veteran of the industry Oliver says it doesn’t cross his mind. “I never worried about reviews. My last album got a lot of radio play because it was accessible whereas this a little bit left of centre. “I will probably get morning and evening airplay but there is not really a song that has a daytime radio thing. I suppose that sounds a little bit strange but there is no point making the second album the same as the first. “My girlfriend asked me if I was worried the other day and the truth is I am not. My job is to write songs and after that I leave it to my manager.” Oliver grew up on the Moynalty Road in Kells, and as the son of a supermarket owner is no stranger to work outside of the music industry. But having just marked his fortieth birthday on the cusp of a new album and signed up to teach song writing to the next generation of stars in a Dublin college, while his life may seem far removed from Meath Oliver says he can trace it all back to the town where he was born. “Kells is just that little bit further away from Dublin – Navan even - so there is not a lot to do and not that many distractions. “Growing up I taught myself how to play the guitar and when I left school we would go out in Kells and afterwards it was always back to a house to play songs with my friends. “I was hugely influenced by the Van Winkles – I loved them, and loved Little Palace too.” Oliver Cole’s as yet untitled second album will be released at the end of the year.

What Gear are you in?

Alan Heary is a cycling coach and personal trainer in Navan. He is a member of Navan Road Club and is the Director of the Irish Cycling Academy. For more free tips on how to improve your cycling visit www.YourCyclingAcademy.com When you take part in a mass cycle such as the recent Meath Heritage cycle you become very much aware of all the crunching and clanging coming from people’s gears. With that in mind I thought I would focus on some gear shifting tips that will make your cycling more efficient and less noisy. Before I give you the tips, you should understand that the purpose of gears is to make the bike easier to pedal up hills and enable you to pedal down them. You are looking to be able to move your pedals at a constant pace (cadence) changing your gears in accordance with the terrain and wind. There is no point in having lots of gears if you don’t know how to use them. Tip one - You must be pedalling when you shift gears. In order for the deraillers to de-rail the chain to the next sprocket the chain must be moving. If you decide to shift the gear when you are freewheeling and then pedal, it will not only stretch the gear cable a little but will cause some very disturbing noises. Tip two - Lighten the pressure on the pedals as you change gears. Keep them turning, but don’t force them down while you shift. Lightening the pressure will drastically smooth out your gear change. It will not only reduce those grinding noises when you shift but will also lengthen the life of your drive train. When climbing hills you should shift down before your legs slow down too much. Tip three – Avoid using the big sprocket on the front with the large ones in the back, and likewise, avoid using the small one in the front with the small ones in the back. This tip has to do with chain line. Although no real harm is done using the wrong gears together, avoiding them can stop those rattles and rubs you sometimes hear. With the amount of gears that come on bikes today, you should be able to avoid “mixing your lows and highs” and still find a comfortable gear in which to ride. Tip Four - Shift back to a lower gear before you come to a complete stop. This will make it easier to pedal off when you go to start again so that you’ll be in an easy gear for starting out again. So, there is four simple tips that will allow you to pedal much more efficiently without the crunching of gears.

Race Across America

ITS 4AM, the car drives up beside the lone cyclist and winds down the window. The tired face peers into the car. “I’m exhausted, I need sleep. Just give me 3 hours”. The response is not what he wants to hear “Keep going for another while and I can give you fifteen minutes….. In the meantime drink this mug of coffee”. He pedals away and you feel bad but this is the Race Across America (RAAM), the Worlds Toughest bicycle race! When Cork man Donncha Cuttriss cycled into Navan on the 20th September 2010 he had just finished a 1350 mile World cup event - The Race Around Ireland. He had made it inside the qualifying time for RAAM and it set him up to take on his lifetime dream – Be the first Irish man to complete the 3000mile gruelling event which goes though 15 states starting in Oceanside California and finishing the other side of the continent in Annapolis Maryland. Unlike the Tour de France where riders spend 3 weeks covering a similar distance, Cutriss would have to finish the distance inside twelve days to be considered an official finisher of RAAM. The race format is essentially a time trial: also called “against the clock” racing, and “the race of truth”, this means no ‘drafting,’ or taking shelter from the wind behind any vehicles or other riders. There are no discreet stages in this race. There are 55 Time Stations, spaced approximately 50 miles apart and Donncha would have to cycle day and night to reach each time station within a time limit or fear being disqualified. His average speed would have to remain over 11mph. This pace would have to be delicately balanced with managing pain, sleep and nutrition. Overcoming fatigue and correct nutritional intake are the defining features of the competition in RAAM, and these are what make the event so unusually difficult. On an ultra-endurance event like this Donncha needed a team. A backup crew that would drive day and night, feed him, navigate him and motivate him. To build the team Donncha approached Navan based cycling coach, and mental fitness expert Alan Heary who in 2008 had entered a 4 person team that finished second in RAAM smashing the Irish record by over 30 hours. Alan went about building the team. Meath man, Emmet Roche was the chief navigator, setting up the GPS tracking,

and mapping the route so that neither the vehicles nor cyclist would waste time by ever going off course. Mechanic, Anthony Harrington made sure that both the vehicles and bikes were well maintained. It was massage therapist Kevin Corcoran whose job it was to ease out any tension or pain for Donncha while Navan man Matt Smyth provided medical backup if it were required. All food was taken care of by qualified chef Darren Rubotham who also had the tough job of driving the campervan from time station to time station day and night. Colorado based ultra cyclist and 2008 solo RAAM finisher Tim Case joined the team during the race to bring his expertise to the table. Donncha had decided to do the event not just for himself but to benefit the Navan based charity Aisling Group International. Charity founder Marie Byrne was the last crew member and did a great job keeping everyone back home up to date with how the trip was going through daily reports online. That night the lone cyclist did drink the coffee. He did take the 15 minute sleep and he did carry on, becoming the first Irish person to finish RAAM solo. He made it in 10days 23hours and 33 minutes. An amazing achievement and adventure for all involved. It is worth noting that Austrian adventurer Wolfgang Fasching has won solo RAAM and climbed Mt. Everest. He has said that “Everest is more dangerous, but RAAM is much harder”.

D.I.Y. Debs Makeup What is Saorview? WELL IT’S that time of year again, the ink is hardly dry on the last leaving cert paper and the girls are hunting down the dress and shoes for the Debs. You have to be comfortable with your makeup look and if you’re not you will be self conscious all night so don’t go for black Smokey eye just because your mates are. Less is often more so go for what you want and what reflects your personality It can be a tricky one for young girls and while some know exactly what they want others may not be so comfortable with makeup. Also in today’s world getting a Makeup Artist is not always affordable so here’s my advice for those doing a D.I.Y. job. No matter what the occasion keep the foundation nice and light and use concealer sparingly and make sure it suits your skin tone, if you can see a line on the jaw line where the colour doesn’t match then BLEND. Next powder to set and then some nice bright blush, pinks and corals are gorgeous on young skin.

At your age you can get away with loads of colour and liner on the eye so use my colour guide to make your eyes pop this will make even a natural makeup look more glamorous. • Blue Eyes – Purples/Greys/Blacks/Pinks, • Brown Eyes – Gold’s/Oranges/Blacks, • Green Eyes – Oranges/Purples/Browns. If you are going for a Smokey eye then the number one rule is Eye OR Lip never both. Add some individual or strip lashes if you want to go a bit further with the eye makeup (be careful with the glue), then line the lash line with some liquid or gel liner and it will look perfect. Finally add a shimmer shadow or a luminous blush on the cheek bone and apple of the check and you will have the Hollywood glam look. Practice will make it perfect so get going!

EYE MAKEUP S.O.S.

This comes as a request directly from a reader who wanted to know the correct way to apply makeup to last. • No1. Use an eye primer or even some light concealer, smooth over any creases with your finger and then brush with a loose powder. • No2. Use a neutral base white or cream this will make sure your other colours go on nicely. • No3. You can style your eye shadow whatever way you want with colour i.e. all over the lid or just at the corner and well blended over the socket line. • No4. Don’t forget the eyebrows – fill in any gaps with a matt shadow and brush through. • No5. Line the lash of the eye up and down and add mascara. • No.6 This is not for the faint hearted but you could try and all a liner to the inner waterline of the bottom lash white will make your eye bigger and awake and darker will give a more glamorous. • No.7 Add a little shimmer just under the brow on the brow bone and you are done.

SAORVIEW IS a Free Digital TV Service for Ireland. Saorview replaces the analogue TV services which will be switched off across the country by the end of 2012. Having Saorview will allow you to receive all our domestic channels, without any subscription. There is no ongoing charge for using Saorview, once installed it is entirely free. While it continues to be received though an aerial, the images will be clearer and the domestic channels will be broadcast in HD. To get Saorview you will need a TV aerial (which your home probably already has) and either a digital TV with a Saorview compatible internal digital decoder or a digital decoder box (similar to a Sky box). A Saorview box will work best with a HD TV, as it will receive the pictures in High Definition.

However it works perfectly well with old type TVs as long as it has a scart connection. The Saorview box can downscale HD pictures to normal size for output to the older TV. If you are one of the 600,000 households that rely on your TV aerial as your receiver, you may or may not need to get a new aerial or to reposition the one you have to receive Saorview. It is said that if your TV3 reception is good to very good, then you will not either have to change your aerial or re-position it.

Save our Special Needs Assistants Enduring Power of Attorney THE ENDURING Power of Attorney was introduced by The Powers of Attorney Act 1996 and is also referred to as a Living Will and also as an EPA. If you wish to make decisions now, while in full health, about how you want to be looked after in later life, if and when you lose the mental capacity to look after your own affairs and you wish to nominate a person or persons who you trust to look after your welfare then you should creat An Enduring Power of Attorney. An Enduring Power of Attorney will contain a number of layers of protection for someone who later becomes incapable of managing their affairs. The creation of an Enduring Power of Attorney will involve the following people signing it; The person creating it, called The Donor, The person or persons being appointed, called the Attorney. The General Practitioner who looks after the health of the Donor, who will be asked to certify that at the time of its creation, the Donor had full mental capacity, The Solicitor acting for and advising the Donor, who will have to certify that, at the

time of the creation of The Enduring Power of Attorney and before signing it, the Attorney fully understood what they were signing, and were not, in the opinion of the Solicitor, subject to fraud or undue influence. In addition the Donor will nominate two, or more, Notice Parties, who will be close family members or trusted friends whose names and addresses will be included in the document. These Notice Parties will be formally notified of the existence of the Enduring Power of Attorney once the document has been fully signed. An Enduring Power of Attorney can be activated at a later time only with the full knowledge of all of the people mentioned above. Any of the above named people can object to the activation if they are of the view that the Donor has not lost their mental capacity to look after their affairs. We at Steen O Reilly have created very many Enduring Powers of Attorneys for clients. If you would like to discuss the creation of an Enduring Power of Attorney for yourself please contact us on a confidential basis. The first consultation is, of course, FREE OF CHARGE.

SCHOOLS HIT hard with governments new Special Needs cap. The number of Special Needs Assistants (SNA’s) in Irelands’ schools will be cut following a recent Dail decision where the government won the vote to cap the number of SNA by a margin of 103-47. With the reduction of special needs Assistants in schools across the country, many parents may find themselves this September, being in a position where they find their children either without the services of an SNA or with reduced services, where more than one student will share the service of the SNA. This will mean their child does not have the ‘right to equal opportunity through education’ as other children. This could lead to the government facing legal charges for breaches of legislation

about the provision of education to people with special needs. Taoiseach Enda Kenny recently stated in the Dail that while a cap of 10,575 assistant posts was put in place in 2010, there were currently 10,800. While opposition criticised the cap, Enda Kenny stated ‘no school would be without contract with a SNA if it needs it and no child will be left without contact with a SNA if he or she needs it’. As well as heated exchanges in the Dail during the recent debate, there have been a number of demonstrations throughout the country against the decision. Schools may be in a position to privately employ SNA’s to ensure, while the debate continues, their child’s education will not be affected.

Hello Readers, Well here we are on month no. 4 of The Meath Herald Newspaper, I hope you are enjoying the read and getting some useful tips along the way to reach your individual goals. In this months article I want to talk to you about nutrition and one of the key factors in healthy eating “THE DANGERS OF SUGARS”. People are so caught up in “Fat Free” products and they think this is the way to go, well I’m afraid you need to refocus and look at where there are hidden sugars in foods we might think are otherwise healthy i.e fruit juices etc. Also I am going to give you 3 more exercises to add to your Home Programme, please feel free to call me on 086 2254030 or join me on facebook to let me know how your getting on, as I know we are getting a huge following. Speak soon and see you next month. Aoife Bradley- Personal Trainer.

“THE DANGERS OF SUGARS”

The general public believes that the orange juice they buy at the supermarket is healthy....however, once the fresh squeezed juice has been pasteurized, it no longer has any live enzymes, and the vitamin and mineral content has been greatly reduced. In essence, the processing of the juice renders it the same as refined white sugar. So you are way better to squeeze your own orange or just eat it whole. Honey would give the same result unless it is raw, UNHEATED honey. This means that in the processing of the honey, the temperature cannot exceed 96 degrees fahrenheit, or the live enzymes in the honey will be destroyed as well. Since most people do not drink fresh squeezed orange juice, or go to the trouble to make sure their honey is unheated during processing, they are feeding their bodies pure sugar without knowing it. Now think about the amount of sugars that the average person gets in their daily diet.....it’s no wonder that so many people are sick these days. Their immune systems are constantly operating below their optimum levels, and why Obesity and Overweight is becoming frighteningly high in Ireland both in adults and children. So make note, what you might think is healthy might just contain sugar! When sugar is constantly in the diet, the pancreas must constantly produce insulin. When sugar is continually overused, the pancreas eventually wears out and is no longer able to clear sugar from the blood. NOW....let’s talk about CORN SYRUP.....used as sweetener for fizzy drinks (diet or sugar free) and is in almost any processed food you can find on the shelf today. Corn syrup is a liver toxin. It is metabolised in the body the same way alcohol is metabolised. Now, alcohol is metabolised by the brain, and so you get effects that you can recognise. Effects like impaired judgment, slowed response time, impaired motor function, etc. But corn syrup is not metabolised by the brain, so you don’t notice that is affecting your body the same way alcohol is. Drinking a can of fizzy drink does the same thing to your liver that drinking a can of beer does. So again make these simple choices that will change how your body feels, all for the better. Eating whole fruits does not cause the same problem as high fructose corn syrup and table sugar, because the fruits contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants which help metabolise the fructose. While high fructose corn syrup is the number one food substance which creates the metabolic syndrome of diabetes, high blood presure, liver disease, kidney disease, and vascular disease, the number two food substance is the yeast used to make BEER. Some of the other effects of sugar on the body are: *Increases chronic fatigue *Can trigger binge eating *Increases PMS symptoms *Increases hyperactivity in about 50% of children *Increases tooth decay *Increases anxiety and irritability *Can increase or intensify symptoms of anxiety and panic in susceptible women *Can make it difficult to lose weight because of constantly high insulin levels, which causes the body to store excess carbs

Clinton hair by design beauty by nature

Welcome to our Hair Care Column

I recently used a home colour and it has been a disaster. It didn’t turn out the colour it was supposed to and also damaged my hair. What can I do and what is the best hair colour system to use? You should go into a professional salon and have a colour specialist analyse the situation. Most likely your colour has gone darker and patchy which most home colours can do, so in this case you possibly will need to cleanse your hair which is a process that will lighten it again and even out the colour. From this we will be able to apply the required shade you want to achieve. If your hair is damaged, on the day you are getting the colour corrected we can offer a variety of treatments, which will restore moisture and strengthen the hair cuticle and also give you advice on our range of Wella products, which you can buy and take home and use yourself to further improve the condition.

Profile MakeUp Studios’s Checklist for your Debs or Special Event camera, phone credit, shoe cushions, fold up flats for taxi home. Most of all HAVE FUN! For further tips and advice visit www. profilemakeupstudio.com

EXFOLIATE: One to two times a week focusing on areas such as elbows, knees and feet. Follow up with a deep moisturiser. This prepares your skin for fake tan. Tan: If you are using a self tanner, remember to experiment well before the event to determine the correct amount required for your desired look. Pre-Pampering: Allow a few days before the event for treatments such as waxing, eyebrow shaping, facials, manicures and pedicures. This allows time for any redness or reactions to diminish. Outfit: Try on your outfit one or two days before the event in case it needs any alterations. Hang it up pressed or dry-cleaned, with a plastic cover for protection. Primer: Apply a primer after your moisturiser and before your foundation. This will keep your makeup looking fresh all night. Lips: Brush your lips first with a clean toothbrush then apply Vaseline. This will soften the lips and maintain the lipstick colour. Allow plenty of time on the day for: A light lunch if you’re booked for an evening meal, hair and makeup appointments and photos etc. Lay out everything you need in advance so your time is not spent looking for items. Supplies on the Night: handbag, mints, tissues, compact powder, gloss, eyelash glue, deodorant or perfume, hair pins/spray, comb for back combing,

If Variety is the spice of style…… Autumn/Winter 2011 is set to be the hottest season yet.

IF THERE’S one thing that’s dependable and reliable when it comes to Irish weather, it is that we are always guaranteed both Autumn and Winter. Yes, grey skies, howling winds, never-ending rain and over recent years, snowfall worthy of any Alpine ski resort! Admittedly, I do love the crackling fires, steamy mugs of hot chocolate and the opportunity to lounge around in my coziest pair of pjs, but I will grieve the loss of that fiery ball of warmth in the sky, the mouth-watering smell of barbequed lunch and above all the piles of unworn summer clothes that were handpicked lovingly from the shops back in May, promised to be worn with style, weather permitting. Rain might have been the underlying trend for our summer, but it was one I certainly was not a fan of. If you haven’t managed to make it beyond the racks and racks of sale items dominating the highstreet, do so now. Take a sneak peak at what is to come! The shops are silently laying the seeds for an exciting and glamorous season ahead. From the revival of 40’s, 60’s and 70’s fashion, to the gothic and fetish inspired look, Autumn and Winter 2011 will be the hottest season yet, excuse the pun. So why not accept that summer 2011 has indeed left the building and invest in some key pieces to carry you through those long, dark and chilly months? Spice up your life, not just your wardrobe! With such exciting trends on the horizon, I guarantee you will be braving the fiercest of winter weather just to strut your glamorous new self, dressed from head to toe in the latest highstreet designs! 40’S ELEGANCE Think chic and sophisticated style, pencil skirts, Mary-Jane shoes, pearls, furs and shrugs and of course the ultra-glam leather gloves. Skirts should drop to the knee and cling to those feminine curves. Pleated skirts are a safe alternative to those not wanting to bear all and when worn in soft chiffon or silk, epitomize the beauty of the female shape, which the glamorous decade of the 40’s encapsulated. When looking at fabric, choose tartans, tweed, feathers, silk and fur, the theme of fabric this season is to mix it all up. FETISH FASHION This look is most definitely not for the faint-hearted! It’s all a bit racy and set to turn heads and this time exactly for all the ‘wrong’ reasons! Black is the key colour to this gothic delight and textures include leather straps and buckles, pvc, sheer panels and black lace. For those blushing already, why not add just a touch of spice to your current wardrobe with the key accessories for this season, the choker necklace or cuff bracelet? Maybe keep it a little more mainstream with a soft black leather jacket, smoky eyes and a fist full of black lace? Black is the new ‘black’ this Autumn/Winter. 70’S SOPHISTICATION It’s not all about the flares! Yes, the 70’s silhouette is a voluminous one but distinctly different from the 90’s interpretation of the revival of the flares and bohemian 70’s. This season it’s all about sophistication. High-waisted and wide-legged trousers worn with that defining smart belt, silk or satin pussy-bow blouses with feature sleeves such as bishop cut or airy billowing style. Long, slinky

gowns with draping, low necklines or dress slits, the ultimate in ‘70s night time glamour. Remember to keep the volume on the bottom half of your body, so tuck slim fitting tops in to your bell-bottoms or wide-legged pants to keep the silhouette balanced. Accessorise with lots of exotic jewels, floppy hats and the highest platforms you can manage! PRINT & PATTERN Spots and checks, animal prints , flowers and even birds have dominated the catwalks of this season. The timeless elegance of the circle and spot have featured highly not only in prints but also in crocheted fabrics and knitwear for Autumn/Winter. The zoological or animal based theme has been taken from the patterns of nature around us such as panthers, lions and even wolves. Motifs of bird and birdcages will appear all around and an abundance of feather inspired fashion is a definite for the long months ahead. COLOUR Boozy inspired colours such as burgundy, claret and even a rusty cider colour will give a sophisticated hue to our wardrobes this season. Not dramatic enough for you? Then try the solid block colours still lingering from the summer such as red, blue and even a splash of yellow. To stay true to the trend, wear your block colour head to toe and complete your look with a beautiful pair of MaryJanes! The 70’s sophistication of nudes and browns will be a good neutral for all. Always check the intensity of any colours you choose with your own complexion, you should wear the colour, not the other way round.

Heroic effort sees Kells Blackwater hit the big time

AN UNDER-11 soccer team from Kells shocked some of the biggest club sides in the world last month when they made the final of a prestigious junior football tournament in England at the first time of asking. The lads from Kells Blackwater FC had travelled to the Keele Cup in England to try their hand against an array of international sides, and in the event steamrollered their way to the final of their section. Coach Stevie McManus said they were very proud of the boys for what they had achieved. “There were 6,000 kids at this tournament and a lot of the teams are affiliated to Premier League clubs which gives you an idea of the standard.” Kells Blackwaters’ tournament started with them drawn in a group alongside Chicago Nationals from the USA, Ligi Ndogo from Kenya, the Liverpool Academy Team, Stockholm FC, the Aga Khan School from Kenya and Stafford Rangers who also share players with Premiership clubs. “Our first game was against Ligi Ndogo from Kenya and we beat them 3-0. Then we played Chicago and won 1-0. Our last game of the day was against Stockholm FC and we won that 1-0, which meant we ended the day on a maximum of nine points without

conceding one goal.” Stevie says they couldn’t have hoped for better. “After the three games the lads and ourselves were thinking that anything was possible.” The final two games in the group were played on Friday July 29 with some of the players who had not been given a game pressed into action. Aga Khan were dispatched easily 6-0 but Stafford Rangers put up more of a fight and the final score ended 2-2. “It was a fantastic performance and we ended up topping the group on 13 points after five games.” A semi final berth awaited against a team called Beechfield FC who again, are affiliated to professional clubs. But a Trojan effort by the Kells’ boys saw them sweep their opponents aside 3-1 after two late goals from Sam Reynolds. Next up was the final against another Irish team – New Oak from Carlow. “It is the first time in the history of the tournament that two teams from the international category met each other in the final,” said Stevie. But the boys from Blackwater were to be ultimately disappointed, as New Oak scored a late goal to make it one nil. New Oak held out then to claim the trophy.

Stevie says that despite the disappointment, nothing should be taken away from the lads for their performance. “We are all so very proud of them because it was a massive thing to go up against these teams and win. They took on some of the best and beat them convincingly.” The quality of some of the goals will live long in the memory according to the coach. “Brian Burns scored a 30 yard thunderbolt in one of the games, and Sam Reynolds started off as a centre back but we moved him up front and he scored two in one game so I think that’s where he will be staying. Oisin Smith scored a great lob too in one of the games.” Stevie praised the work of coach Mick O’Brien who helped drill the lads in the run up to the tournament along with others who helped with the trip. “They paid for the trip themselves by carrying out sponsored activities such as climbing Slieve Donard. There was a lot of effort put in. Stevie and the lads want to thank Greg Smith, Charlie Williams, Tom Anderson, Mark Reynolds and all the parents who helped out.
