included battle re-enactments, archery and falconry demonstrations, as well as an exhibition on “The Vikings in Fingal”, talks for children on Viking life, and hands-on activities on what it is like to be an archaeologist digging for ancient treasures and remains. It was heartening to see the great interest shown by the youngsters in this fascinating look back at our history. All the focus on the 1000th anniversary of the Battle of Clontarf has been on places and events that happened closer to the city centre, with the re-enactment of the battle last week, but Gerry Clabby, the Council’s Heritage Officer, told the County Leader: “Fingal too has strong links to the Vikings and Brian Boru was brought to Swords by monks on his way to his burial at Armagh, after his death at the infamous battle in 1014. To mark this important anniversary, the

Skerries Lads Complete Cycle For Charity By Jennifer McShane

Andrea Molloy, Sales and Marketing Manager of the Maldron Hotel, Dublin Airport, saw the opportunity to promote the hotel on North County Leader’s innovative website. Andrea is pictured here with Seán Fitzmaurice, IT Director, North County Leader.

Skerries lads, Peter Montgomery and John Walsh, have just completed their amazing 3000km Moments of Clarity cycle down the length of New Zealand, in aid of suicide prevention charity, Save Our Sons and Daughters (SOSAD). They cycled every day (for six weeks) and, incredibly, finished three weeks ahead of schedule. They decided to cycle from the most northerly point of the north island of New Zealand, Cape Reinga, to the most southerly point of the south island, Bluff, near Invercargill. They said they wanted to take on this challenge to to raise awareness and fundraise for Youthline and SOSAD, which is an Irish charity. Peter said that the main goal of the cycle for himself and John, was

to raise awareness about the importance of speaking out about depression. Peter recently said he has suffered from depression for about six years, but in the beginning he didn’t really recognise that it was depression, and the aim was to try to help end the stigma that they say is around this. In raising this awareness, they also wanted to get as many Facebook ‘Likes’ for the initiative as they could to help spread the word, and currently the count is at well over 400. Speaking to the County Leader about the cycle, they said: “The six week cycle was epic in many respects. There were tough times and easy, fun times. The country we cycled through is a beautiful one with very friendly people and outstanding scenery. The physical challenges we met were enjoyable to deal with. Overall we would like to remind people to speak out about their mental challenges, which are quite often a lot more difficult to deal with than physical ones.”

Council organised a weekend of activities in Swords that included a night time torch-light parade to mark the funeral procession and the handing over of Brian’s body to the delegation from Armagh. We also have a number of exhibitions in our libraries at the moment that build a colourful and interesting picture of how the Vikings lived in this area at the time of the Battle of Clontarf,” he said.

Pictured at the fundraising Cake Sale in aid of Cystic Fibrosis at Malahide Community School are students, Ali Duff, Gabrielle Wall, Hannah O’Donohue, Niamh Whalley and Ella Dolan.

Students Raise Funds For Cystic Fibrosis Class 2B in Malahide Community School recently raised €250 for Cystic Fibrosis research and facilities at Beaumont Hospital. A charity chosen by the students research team, was part of their Junior Certificate Action Project following an inspirational talk which brought to light how many people need organ donors. With permission from their year head Mrs. Garvey, and School Principal Mrs Patricia McDonagh, these second year students put together an excellent event and all for such a great cause. Each student put in a lot of hard work and dedication with the organisation, research and planning of this charity event. The students spent a few weeks prior to the event working on ways in which to advertise the event around the school and worked very hard on coming up with individual ideas, unique to their own cake sale in comparison to others. Students catered for special eating needs, such as gluten free options, and even took

into consideration those who gave up chocolate for Lent. The research team had the difficult and very challenging task of delving deep into the long list of charities that need organ donors after the inspiration they got from their guest speaker, local Senator Darragh O’Brien (FF). He kindly gave up

his time to come into their CSPE class and give a talk on democracy. O’Brien also discussed his continuous work towards everyone carrying an organ donor card in this country, which took place earlier in the school year. The charity cake sale was a huge success thanks to the generous students, parents/guardians, teachers, management and entire school community at Malahide.

Swords Couple’s Box Of Kindness The generosity of a Swords couple to provide much needed help for people in Uganda, is having a very beneficial

effect on people in the African country. Tony and Terri Burke decided to send boxes of goodies and affordable

items to people working in an orphanage in Kampala, capital of Uganda, and they have been doing so for the past few years. Terri explained to the County Leader about how they came to be involved in this selfless act of kindness. “When we adopted our daughter, Jovia (5) from the Sanyu Baby’s Home in Kampala, we were immediately struck by the plight of the mamas, who are the people who look after the orphans at the Sanyu. They work tirelessly and are so kind to the children. They get very little pay for their hard work, and we decided that we would help them out in whatever way we could, in thanks for the way they looked after Jovia and the other children,” she said. They decided to send boxes of non-perishable goods, just for the mamas to enjoy. These typically include footwear and

New Den For Portmarnock Scout Group After six years of campaigning and fundraising, the sod was turned recently for the building of the new Scout and Guide centre in Portmarnock. Minister James Reilly and an entourage of local councillors turned up for the event, with lots of parents and a token representation of Scouts and Guides which made the day a great event for all. Scout leader, James O’Connor, the driving force behind the project, formally welcomed Minister Reilly and began by giving some background information about the formation of the den committee and hard work to reach this stage of the development. “It’s like a dream come true,” Peter O’Kelly, Scout Group Leader told the County Leader. “There were many times when our den committee felt like throwing in the towel, but with perseverance and the support of the people of

Portmarnock, we have finally reached our goal.” “The centre will take 44 weeks to build and when completed will be of huge benefit to the 240 Guides and Scouts already in the groups and will afford lots more to be taken from our waiting lists,” he explained. “Local people too, may use the facility when not in use and it is hoped that groups from abroad may come in summer time for their annual activities.” Minister Reilly in his speech, confessed to never having been in the scouts, but made reference to his son who was a scout and who is autistic. He said that he had no doubt that scouting had done wonderful things towards the development of his son and thanked the leaders for their great work and commitment to young people. ‘Of course, we still have a long way to go financially,” Peter continued. “Our fundraising will be ongoing.”

By Patrick Finnegan items of clothing and jewellery that the mamas are unfamiliar with and are very grateful for. “Even the most basic items that we take for granted here, are regarded as luxuries in Kampala,” said Tony. Terri added, “If I see shoes in Penneys, for example that cost €2 per pair, I will buy 60 pairs. Our friends are always on the lookout for bargains and we snap them up.

There is no problem with getting the items for shipping, but the cost of shipping is very prohibitive. I would like to thank Ian Hunter and Deirdre King from the Pavilions Shopping Centre, who donated €250 towards the cost of the shipment. Also Pat Byrne from DHL is great at organising the shipments for us,” said Terri. Both Tony and Terri have been to Kampala several times since Jovia was adopted, and they are already planning another trip there in the near future.

Swords Needs Another Second Level School Devitt Independent councillor in the upcoming local elections, Anne Devitt (NP), is calling on the Department of Education to finalise the purchase of school campus at Mooretown in Swords. “There are currently 3,500 children attending primary schools, and a total of 2,400 places in the four secondary schools in the town. That leaves a gap and demand for 1,100 places at second level immediately,” Devitt explained to the Cllr. Devitt County Leader. “I challenge the Minister’s suggestion that there is a spike this year in those looking for places at Holy Family school,” she continued. The deal is agreed for the school site, it needs to be finalised and let construction start,” she continued. “The child population of Swords is increasing and I am calling on the Minister to act immediately to avoid a crisis in our secondary schools. It is a basic requirement of sustainable communities that we can educate our children within our own community,” Devitt concluded.

Paralympic Champion Presents Awards to Swords Students

Pictured at the Mental Health Sports Seminar are, Joey Boland (Dublin hurling star), Adrian Henchy (Fianna Fail local election candidate and sports coach), Fiona Coghlan (Ireland's Ladies 6 Nations rugby captain), Lisa Jacob (Irish hockey star), Brent Pope (Rugby pundit) and Darragh Moloney (RTE sports commentator)

Henchy Organises Mental Health Awareness Evening ‘Let’s Talk Mental Health and Sport’ was the theme at the recent Mental Health Awareness evening at Kettles Hotel in Rolestown, with over 120 people attending. It was a very successful event, hosted by wellknown RTE presenter, Darragh Moloney. The event was organised by Fianna Fail election candidate, Adrian Henchy, who is a Community Mental Health Nurse, and a community volunteer. He told the County Leader: “Make no mistake, mental health is the single biggest issue for our community today. It was important to find a way to get this topic out in the open and also to help people understand the role sport can play in achieving good mental and physical well-being.” “We had a fantastic panel of

speakers on the night with rugby analyst, Brent Pope, All-Star Dublin footballer, Paul Flynn, Dublin hurler, Joey Boland, Ladies Grand Slam rugby winning captain, Fiona Coghlan and Irish hockey international, Lisa Jacob.” He continued. “It was a privilege to hear each speaker talk candidly about mental health, their own experiences, and the role of sport in developing one’s physical, psychological and emotional wellbeing.” Henchy closed the event by reminding everybody that “this mental health event is only the start of a much longer conversation. There is a lot more to be discussed and we need to keep talking about mental health, until everybody knows that it is okay to talk about mental health.”

Over 200 students were presented with certificates in the Carnegie Hotel in Swords by Paralympic medal winner, and Swords lady, Catherine Walsh. Minister for Health, James Reilly TD also attended the event to show his support and congratulate all of the students receiving their awards. Students from Swords were presented with FETAC certificates and awards following the completion of a range of courses designed to support people to enter into, or return to employment or progress to further education. The vocational programmes, which are funded by the Dublin and Dun Laoghaire Education Training Board (DDLETB) include Fresh Start, IT with Office Skills, Fast Track to Employment, Vocational Skills Foundation. Catherine, who won a silver medal at the London 2012 Paralympics, told the County Leader, “I would like to congratulate each and every one of the students here today on receiving their certificates. I know from my experience competing the effort it takes to win, so for those of you who had to over-

The Mayor’s Economic Conference was held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Blanchardstown on Wednesday, 16th April last. It was hosted by County Mayor, Cllr Kieran Dennison, who spoke about Working Together for Economic Success. It aimed to shine a spotlight on the changing roles and responsibilities of Local Government in respect of Economic Development. These changes are very real and their impact should be felt by the business community across all sectors and locations. He said that the North County has much to be proud of, and is Ireland’s fastest growing county in both economic and population terms, with foreign direct investment levels higher here than in any other area in Ireland. He also spoke about healthy local communities that are underpinned by vibrant and sustainable local economies. Other speakers included Ethna Felten, Director of Economic Development at the County Council, County Manager, Paul Reid and Patricia Swords, DSP, Joe Gavin, Blanchardstown Shopping Centre and Attracta Duran, DSP Oisin Geoghegan, the County Council’s Head of Local Enterprise. County Manager, Paul Reid explained that our vision for Economic Development is evolving. It will continue to adapt, evolve and change to meet the changing needs of the county. “Our desire to work collaboratively with the business community ensures that your voice, your input and your ideas can and will be heard by our team,” he said. Following this, Oisin Geoghegan spoke about how the Local Enterprise Office will further enhance the services and supports experienced by the business community, particularly the SME sectors, and how the new LEO can provide support for new business in the area. Other topics addressed by various speakers included ways to enhance business, including how Fingal Data can set your business apart and how developing an entrepreneurial ecosystem is everyone’s responsibility.

Kelleher Plans To Deliver Better Quality Of Life Long standing County councillor, Tom Kelleher (Lab) has signalled his intention to run again in the upcoming local elections for Swords, and is determined to continue his good work for residents in the area. When asked what difference he will make if elected, Kelleher has very definite plans to make the region a better place to live.

Special Trust Launched For Inspiring Skerries Woman A special trust has been set up to help raise vital funds for a Skerries woman who has an extremely rare form of cancer. The Caring For Caroline Medical Trust was officially launched just recently, to offer support to Caroline Fagan-Heyenga, from Skerries, who suffers from Metastatic Follicular Thyroid Carcinoma. This local lady is a remarkable woman, who has gone through quite a journey to get to where she is today, and is still fighting her illness with remarkable strength. It was at the tender age of nine when she was first diagnosed with Follicular Thyroid Carcinoma, and now at 32 is still fighting. For over 21 years, she has fought many tumours, and she is still constantly looking (and often trying out) new forms of treatment today, often flying to the USA and other places, as well as getting many treatments in Ireland for this rare disease. The trust was initially set up as a self-funding trust by Caroline’s family in order to raise funds for her treatments (particularly for the latest innov-

Esteemed actor Stephen Rea from Donabate and broadcaster Jenny Buckley officially launched the Trust recently, which has already received support from Irish rugby stars including Rob Kearney, Mike Ross, Dave Kearney and Paddy Jackson. Speaking to the County Leader, Caroline’s brother, Richard said the Caroline was doing great, and that the trust had really taken on a new life since it was set up. “What we found since setting the trust up, is that it’s offering a great support network to those who have rare cancers, which we obviously think is fantastic.” “Caroline throughout Caroline Fagan - Heyenga her life, has always been so positive and is doing really well.” She is married to John Heyenga, and has two children; three year old Katie, and two year old Claire. “We’re delighted that the trust has been received so positively and want to thank everybody for their support,” he continued. Richard said that Caroline had also become a role model of sorts for others. “We’ve been hearing from others who have rare cancer, who want to speak with her to hear her story.”

arising from the absence of a lit footpath from Knocksedan, so it is difficult to comprehend why this is not a priority. I am fully in support of residents on this issue, and I intend to fight for this project to happen and it will be a priority of mine, if I am elected in May. These residents have paid significant property taxes, so they should see those taxes being spent on projects that will improve their area. This proposed path is one such project. Residents need a path and they need to know that their children are safe when walking. Using funding as an excuse is simply not good enough,” said Sinnott.

Swords Celebrates Contd. from page 1 The Friday night Fire and Torch Parade included re-enactors marching down Main Street by torch-light, carrying the body of Brian Boru to Swords Town Park. One hundred fire brandishing Vikings carried Brian Boru’s remains through Swords and handed them over to the Monks and Archbishop of Armagh, in a theatrical reenactment of the real events that happened in Swords after Brian’s defeat at the Battle of Clontarf. This noisy and dramatic reenactment was followed immediately by a firework display at Swords Castle and Town Park, over the Viking village. Many locals got into the spirit of the things, by coming dressed as a Viking or Irish warrior, and some even grew, knitted or made their own beards.

Fingal Dublin Chamber of Commerce is celebrating 20 years of supporting business in the community, and in that time, it has been widely accepted as being instrumental in reinvigorating and shaping the business landscape, as we know it in the region today. The Chamber has played a very prominent role in attracting foreign companies to locate in the North County, by taking advantage of the area's excellent infrastructure and road network system, that is the envy of the entire country. Allied to this, is the fact that the main Irish international airport is located here, which forms the gateway to the region as well as the proximity to the capital city. These major advantages have been utilised in a very business-like way by the Chamber, working with other agencies, to attract the finest multinational companies to locate here, thus generating a commercial hub that is second to none. The recent expansion of the Chamber to incorporate the D15 Chamber under the one banner, means that entire Fingal region now has one of the finest business networks in the country. This merger of the two chambers has been a landmark event, with the consequent lucrative spin-off for the local economy, through job creation

and the development of the services industry. The entire North County Dublin/Fingal region is viewed as a most desirable location for foreign direct investment, as well as indigenous business, and the Chamber is now the accredited Chamber for the entire Fingal region and stretches from Blanchardstown in the west, to Swords, Malahide and Howth in the east, and Balbriggan in the north. Fingal Dublin Chamber delivers value to it’s members, through a variety of opportunities to network, connect and engage with each other. As the region's largest business organisation, they also provide advice, support, referrals and representation to help businesses grow and develop. They host a variety of 'After 6' Networking events, business breakfasts and lunches, where business leaders are invited to gather together and share common strands, where business opportunities are spawned and new friendships are forged.

Message from President of Fingal Dublin Chamber

Siobhan Kinsella As the 11th President of the Fingal Dublin Chamber of Commerce, I am particularly pleased and indeed honoured to be leading the celebrations of the 20th Year of the Chamber. It is my hope and my commitment to build on the outstanding foundations that the Chamber has created over the past twenty years and to grow the Chamber's relevance and influence in the business community, with the support of a professional and energetic staff, together with the strong group of Council members who ensure that the work of the Chamber creates great value for our members. The Chamber has always been to the fore in promoting the economic development of the region, by ensuring only the best infrastructure in our road networks and public services, the continued development of Dublin Airport, improved education facilities and workforce development. We know it is only through a strong commitment to quality and excellence in business that we will succeed in our goals. The Chamber is very proud of our excellent relationships with local and national government, particularly so with Fingal County Council, with whom the Chamber has worked tirelessly to improve the quality of life for those who live, work and stay in Fingal. We will continue to build on these relationships into the future.

Over 150 people from the business and political communities attended the evening, which was addressed by Bernie Cahill, Executive Chairman, Aer Lingus.

Message from Fingal County Manager

Paul Reid It’s particularly fitting that Fingal County Council shares it’s 20 year anniversary with Fingal Dublin Chamber of Commerce in 2014. We offer the Chamber and all its members our sincere congratulations and good wishes for continued good work on behalf of Fingal’s business community. Over the past 20 years, this Council has supported the Chamber in it’s wide range of activities to network, connect and engage the diverse and active business community across Fingal. We’ve see both the County and the Chamber grow from strength to strength during that time, and some of the world’s leading companies included in the 5,500 businesses that have chosen to base themselves in Fingal. Many of these companies are important members of the Fingal Dublin Chamber. On the edge of our capital, with Dublin International Airport gateway at its heart and direct access to Ireland and Europe’s road and rail transport network, Fingal is Ireland’s fastest growing county in economic and population terms and an excellent place to do business. As the accredited Chamber for the entire Fingal Region, stretching from Blanchardstown in the west to Swords, Malahide and Howth in the east and Balbriggan in the north, the firm belief in Fingal’s great potential has always been at the heart of the Fingal Dublin Chamber and informed it’s diverse programme of advice, support, referrals and representation to help it’s members to grow and develop in business, in Ireland and internationally. Along with the Fingal Dublin Chamber, Fingal County Council is looking

forward with strong ambition for Fingal to be the leader in Ireland’s economic recovery, and we will work together to do all we can to support and encourage job creation in the county. The recent announcement by the The Irish Technology Leadership Group (ITLG) in Palo Alto, California, that the 2015 ITLG Silicon Valley Global Technology Summit will be hosted by Dublin Fingal Region, in partnership with Fingal County Council, Dublin City University, Institute of Technology Blanchardstown and Fingal Dublin Chamber in May 2015, is a great coup for both the Fingal Dublin Chamber and the Council and another vote of confidence in Fingal as a prime investment location. Since my appointment, I have engaged strongly with the Chamber. I look forward with anticipation to more great opportunities like these to promote Fingal to the business community at home and abroad, and to continue to develop our strong relationship with the Fingal Dublin Chamber as it grows into the future.

Message from Chief Executive Fingal Dublin Chamber

Tony Lambert In 1994, the Swords & District Chamber of Commerce was formed to deal with many critical issues that were facing the area at that time. With a small group of 35 committed business men and women, the Chamber started on a journey to promote and grow the economic development of the area. Over the next twenty years, the Chamber has grown to represent over 350 businesses representing every economic activity sector. The Chamber has increased its influence and continues to drive the business agenda for the Fingal and Greater Dublin Region. We have grown our international trade supports through better export documentation services, creating new contact opportunities for companies coming into the region, while assisting local companies to export their products and services. The journey continues with improved services for supporting start-up businesses with advice, connecting our members with other potential customers and suppliers and organising more innovative opportunities for Members to meet and do business. In 2014, the future is promising and the Chamber is looking forward to meeting the challenges that are ahead. We will continue to provide the business community with strong leadership and a strengthened commitment to excellence in everything we do.

years in existence, started life as Swords and District Chamber, at a time when the business scene was far removed from where it is now. Chamber CEO, Tony Lambert spoke about how this organisation developed from humble beginnings, to becoming the commercial powerhouse that it is today. "In 1994, it became obvious that business people in Swords needed a strong organisation to promote the area - not alone Swords town, but the whole region. The result was that 35 business people came together in March 1994 to form the Swords and District Chamber of Commerce. The district part refers to Dublin Airport, as well as other outlying areas of Swords,' he said. "In the early 2000's, the name changed to Swords Fingal Chamber, to better reflect the wider representation of businesses that were members of the Chamber. This continued for a number of years, until we formed the Fingal Dublin Chamber and, with the merger with the D15 Chamber, we became a stronger, more representative organisation, with companies from throughout Fingal and the greater Dublin region." Lambert continued, "The Chamber is a very broad representative organisation, which has to be agile in

Message from Chief Executive Chambers Ireland

Ian Talbot Twenty years is a significant milestone in the life of a company. In Chamber time it is just the beginning. I write to compliment Fingal Dublin Chamber President, Siobhán Kinsella, its Chief Executive and driving force, Tony Lambert, their board and the Chamber members for their collective efforts to support the development of Fingal, as a wonderful area in which to invest, live and build a business. Working together with key stakeholders in Fingal, particularly the County Council and successive County Managers from Willie Soffe through to new incumbent, Paul Reid, Fingal Dublin Chamber has set the bar in what an appropriately structured, focussed and led Chamber can achieve, regionally, nationally and indeed internationally. From providing key networking opportunities, through to supporting the development of new enterprise in Fingal, this Chamber has shown the way for other Chambers around Ireland to follow. In the international context alone, Fingal Dublin Chamber plays a vital role in supporting exporters through the timely provision of documentation and technical support for businesses selling overseas. From first time exporters, through to seasoned multinational firms, Fingal Dublin Chamber will step up these activities further in 2015, when it hosts tech leaders from Silicon Valley and beyond with the Irish Technology Leadership Group's meeting in Ireland in 2015. I know that the Chamber also works closely with Fingal County Council in fostering international trade relationships with other markets in the US, Europe and Asia. The Fingal Business Excellence Awards play a vital role in recognising business leaders in Fingal, while also fostering links and connections. This is highly appropriate given that Fingal represents the new Ireland in terms of demography, openness, cultural mix and world class leisure, entertainment, infrastructure and education facilities - facilities that are the envy of many around Ireland. Finally, as a stalwart member of the Board of Chambers Ireland, Fingal Dublin Chamber Chief Executive, Tony Lambert is a vital sounding board for the executive in Chambers Ireland to ensure that we, the national representative office of Chambers, are continually focussed on delivering for our affiliated Chambers. I salute Siobhán, Tony and the wider team for their achievement and trust that they are laying the foundations for the growth and development of the Chamber for the next 20 years.

The first winner of the award was Swords based entrepreneur, Michael Dawson, CEO of One4All Gift V o u c h e r s . S u b s e q u e n t winners have included Michael Hoey of Country Crest, Caroline Keeling of Keelings and Michael Wright of the Wright Bar Group. A great boost is the presence of Dublin Airport in the heart of the region. It is the largest economic development zone, not only in the area, but in the entire country, providing more than 12,000 direct jobs, and an additional 30,000 indirect jobs. The Dublin Airport Authority (DAA) have always supported and worked closely with the Chamber, on driving the busi-

ness agenda for the region. The North County Dublin/Fingal region has a major retail shopping

sector and the development of four significant shopping centres, has changed the face of retail in the area. The Pavilions Shopping Centre in Swords, Millfield Shopping Centre in Balbriggan, Airside Retail Park in Swords and Blanchardstown Shopping Centre, provide a combined total of approximately 7,500 jobs in the area. Together with the wide array of shops in the towns and villages in the region, they provide for the shopping needs of people locally and beyond.

The Bracken Grill Steak and Seafood Restaurant, located at the Bracken Court Hotel in Balbriggan, is the newest restaurant in the town, and is quickly establishing a reputation for excellent food and

value for money. It serves a wide variety of bar food all day long, with the grill opening from 5pm every evening and is rapidly becoming one of the best places to eat, not only in Balbriggan, but in the North County area. Bracken Grill offers an excellent choice on their evening menu, and you can choose from the extensive a la carte, or set menu options. The talented chefs use only the finest seasonal ingredients, to ensure that their customers enjoy a dining experience to remember. The man in the kitchen, who has made a differ-

ence is Noel Marrey, who started his career in Roly’s Bistro, before he spent several years in some of the top restaurants in Scotland and Australia. He then spent time in both Portmarnock Hotel and Dunboyne Castle before taking up his position in the Bracken Court. The menu is a three course set menu for €25, with small supplements on some dishes. Main courses offer a choice of steak, pan fried cod fillet, bangers and mash or roast crispy duck. The wine list is extensive and reasonably priced.

Local Fianna Fail election candidate for Swords, John Hennessy, has lashed out at the County Council for failing to provide adequate protection for walkers, beside what he calls, a “toxic pond’ in Swords. The pond is located close to an office complex in Airside Business Park, adjacent to the new Ryanair building, where people walk their dogs on a regular basis. Hennessy told the County Leader, “I was contacted by a few people out walking their dogs, who complained about the toxic smell that emanated from the pond. They were very concerned about the area and wanted something to be done. On top of this, there are unsightly, discarded supermarket trolleys dumped there. There is a real pungent smell and my concern is for kids playing here in the summer. If one of them falls in here, he’s in real trouble,” said Hennessy. “Any kind of toxicity is very

dangerous for the environment, where it can seep into drinking water. The primary responsibility of any local authority is to ensure that these kind of hazardous areas are not allowed to develop, where there’s a danger to the public, and this is a clear danger to the public,” he said. “I am now calling on the Council, if it belongs to them, to clean it up, or to find out who owns it and to use their powers under the Environmental Protection Act to clear it up very quickly. It’s in our area and needs to be attended to, before a tragic accident happens here,” he said.

Everyone knows that Spring is the time of bright colours and smiles. It’s a time for positive changes. The daytime hours become longer, and we can now stay out and enjoy more time in the great outdoors and love the thoughts of coming home to our beautiful homes. However, people tend to spend more time inside their home than out, so why not make your home as bright and relaxing as possible.

Make A Good Plan Making a plan at the start of Spring is a wise move. Start by writing all the things you would like to do in the home and then prioritise them. If this means starting with the cheapest improvements then that is the

way to go. A fresh look to your windows can be created by adding new blinds or having your current one’s reversed. The window is one of the main focusses in a room and by having it looking good, it can give a different look and feel to any room. Flooring can be ready to change this time of the year after the bad weather we have had. Replacing floors is a job that can really give a huge new look to a room or hallway. Carpets are so luxurious and are available in all price ranges here in the North County and give a stylish, comforting and warm look.

has just started and there’s plenty of time to get things done. Keep referring to your list and mark of things you have completed and keep checking to see what needs your attention next. Coal fires are making a comeback and there is nothing more relaxing than sitting in front of an open fire and relaxing. Small luxuries are so nice and you can have them if you plan your finances well. Treat yourself to a satellite system that suits your pocket and entertainment needs. Your home is your castle so enjoy it.

Take It In Your Stride

Whichever room you feel needs your attention first is the place you want to start. Let’s say it’s the bedroom, in

that case there are small improvements that will make your room look like a new boudoir. New curtains and blinds are a start, to make the window a beautiful feature in your bedroom and you can still have that minimal look. Keeping all your clothes and belongings tidied away will automatically keep your room looking fresh and clean. If you have a small bedroom, minimalism is very important and there are lots of tricks and ways to ensure all of your essentials are well out of the way. Under bed storage boxes and bags are a great way to store some of your things.

You should also take advantage of your attic, if you have one. Once all of your belongings are sorted and tidied, try scattering a few cushions on your bed and clearing bedside lockers. Try a nice lamp on your bedside locker that will match your curtains or bed clothes. This gives the room the feeling of few colours and makes it look bigger.

wouldn’t want this place to be dark, miserable and cold, especially in Spring. Paint the kitchen walls in a bright creamy colour that wouldn’t be too annoying, but would be pleasant to your eyes. Also, why not take those dark blinds down and keep the windows open, or even try some new wooden blinds that come in many different colours. This way, you could enjoy the sunshine while cooking, which would make the process a whole lot more enjoyable.
