Concern growing at cancer backlog CONCERN is mounting about delayed cancer diagnoses at University Hospital Waterford. A combination of Covid and the cyber attack on the HSE computer system has created a huge backlog with between 1,000 and 1,500 cases in the pipeline. It would take a single pathologist a year to work through that number of cases. “The cyberattack completely crippled our laboratory and radiology systems,” said Professor Rob Landers. Prof Landers is a pathologist at University Hospital Waterford (UHW) and vice-president of the Irish Hospital Consultants Association. The cyber attack has delayed many treatments, but Prof Landers said the IHCA has specific concerns about delayed cancer diagnoses. He said there is a large backlog of tissue samples sent to histopathology laboratories to be checked for potential cancers. The cyber attack brought

laboratory and radiology work almost to a halt. “We effectively could only do about 5% of normal activity for a good three to four weeks.” Prof Landers told the Irish Examiner. “If there is a high suspicion that a patient has a cancer, that is always treated as urgent and it will go through,” he said. But he is worried there may be cases in the backlog who have cancer that is not suspected. “They could face a delay of eight, 10, 12 weeks in getting their diagnosis,” he said. After the cyber attack, blood tests, X-rays and imaging results all stopped. GPs and hospital laboratory doctors were forced to log all their records by hand and many surgeries cancelled tests altogether. The problem was compounded by Covid which, in its early stages, made many patients reluctant to attend hospitals or GP surgeries. The HSE system has now partially recovered from the criminal attack but merging hand written notes back into digital records is a slow process.

THE Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens in Tramore hosted an open air pop-up literary event. The featured writer was Jean Pasley, whose recently published novel, ‘Black Dragonfly’ is based on Lafcadio Hearn’s childhood in Ireland, and the last 15 years of his life, spent in Japan. The format of the evening was a discussion between the author and Agnes Aylward, chairperson of the gardens. Jean read from some of the

compelling scenes in her book, including a section on the seven year old Hearn talking for the last time with his father on the beach in Tramore, and a riveting account of Hearn’s relationship with his Japanese grandfather in law who told him about the symbolism of black dragonflies in Japanese life. Guests at the event included Hearn’s great great granddaughter, Ayuko Moriya and Julian Walton who also

had a collateral connection with the Hearn family in Tramore. This event was the first in a series of open-air pop-up cultural events planned for the gardens and the first to take place since 2019 . Numbers were restricted in keeping with Covid guidelines. Picture: Stan and Bernadette Phillips at the event in the Japanese gardens. Photo: Noel Browne.

It all adds up to big demand for finance jobs

THERE has been a big increase in jobs in the financial sector, a Waterford-based recuuitment company has reported. Matrix Recruitment has recorded a 52% increase in jobs in accounting and finance for the first half of 2021, compared with the same period in 2020. For those considering a career in the industry or a shift in direction, there has never been a better time to move, the company says. Demand is at an all-time high right across the industry’s spectrum of work, including roles such as auditors, financial controllers, project managers and loan specialists. Demand is spread across the country but is particularly high in Waterford, Wexford, Limerick and Kildare, the company says. “It is a candidate’s market at the moment for the industry and now is the time to be looking at a career in the area, whether you’re a graduate or an experienced finance professional looking for a change,” says Matrix Recruitment MD, Kieran McKeown.

“But the spike in demand won’t necessarily last, so jobseekers should act now to get the best opportunity.” Some 47% of the accounting and finance jobs offered by Matrix at the moment are on a contract basis, which Mr McKeown sees as an advantage for employees. “Contract roles offer greater flexibility, without either party having to commit long-term, but also can be more financially rewarding with higher salaries or weekly rates on offer,” he says. “ It’s definitely something to consider and we are seeing a growing number of candidates select contracting roles specifically because of the flexibility on offer.” Mr McKeown says this significant growth in demand for accounting and finance talent could be down to a number of factors including the easing of Covid restrictions, meaning companies are now putting the accelerator on hiring again . The impact of Brexit mauy also be a factor.including free movement changes that can lead to skills shortages.

A GAA club is working with Waterford council to improve a car parking area in Tramore. The land is owned by the council and leased to the adjacent Tramore GAA club. The work will ensure that the car park and adjacent green area are adequately drained, putting and end to the flooding which has been a problem there. The car parking surface is to be sealed and there will be increased capacity. “The club have been extremely proactive in seeking to improve the facilities for the whole community,” said Councillor Emon Quinlan. “By reclaiming part of the water logged car park, we will take the initiative to resurface the car park and properly line out parking spaces.

“This should add an additional 20 spaces to the car park, bringing it up to approximately 80, reducing the overflow into other areas. “The club has been very good traditionally, in allowing free access to their car park during Tramore’s summer season. This takes the pressure off the council during these times and deserves to be recognised and supported accordingly.” The club has contributed to the project by providing survey works and design and making a significant financial contribution. “This is a great example of a local, voluntary club seeking out a partnership with the councilto work together to improve local infrastructure for the shared benefit of all,” said the Fianna Fail councillor

City rents still low but they are rising fast

THE average monthly rent in Waterford city now stands at €884. It is the only one of Ireland’s five main cities where the monthly rent is below €1,000. But the gap is closing because Waterford has seen an aboveaverage rate of increase. The figures for standardised average rents are from the Residential Tenancies Board and are based on a range of houses and apartments in the first quarter of the year. They show that rents in Waterford city have increased, year on year, by 7.1%. In Limerick city, where the average rent is €1,056, the rincrease was 8.1%. Galway city saw a rise of 10.5%, pushing rents there to an average of €1,301. In Cork city the rise was 5.9% to an average of €1,291 per month.

Dublin has the highest rents but they fell by 1% to an average of €1,724 per month . The county with the fastest increasing rents was Kilkenny with 12.3% year-on-year growth. The county with the with the lowest monthly rents was Leitrim (€596 per month). There was annual growth recorded across 25 out of 26 counties in the first quarter of 2021, with 17 counties recording annual growth of more than 5% . There were fewer tenancies registered with the RTB, a reduction that may be linked to public health restrictions. Estate agents, meanwhile, say house prices in Waterford will continue to increase over the next year,driven by a shortage of supply. They believe the increase here will be slightly higher

than the national average and substantially higher than the rate in Dublin. The predictions are revealed in the SCSI (Society of Chartered Surveyors) Residential Property Market Monitor. Four out of five estate agents surveyed, expect national property prices to increase by an average of 6% over the next 12 months. In Munster, prices are expected to increase by 7%. An increase of 4% is forecast for Dublin. Despite Covid, eight out of ten agents said they had seen an increase in inquiries and viewings over the last quarter. The same number reported low stock levels. TJ Cronin, President of the SCSI, said lack of supply and steep increases in the price of materials meant prices would

Fading fast: the decline and fall of Fianna Fáil

M

ICHÉAL M a r t i n narrowly avoided the dubious distinction of being the first Fianna Fáil leader not to become Taoiseach. That unwanted title seems likely to fall on whoever succeeds him as head of the party. I never rule out anything in politics, but it is hard to see Fianna Fáil ever again becoming the senior partner in a government coalition, much less forming a single-party government, as it did several times between 1932 and 1982. The party that totally dominated Irish life for that half-century is in tatters. It has become irrelevant and seems doomed to suffer the same fate as the party which dominated for most of

Michael Wolsey

the previous 50 years. The Irish Parliamentary Party, the party of Butt and Parnell, had its greatest achievement under John Redmond when it got a Home Rule Bill through the British parliament. But Redmond underestimated reaction to the delay in enacting the legislation and completely misjudged the mood of the country after the Rising of 1916. The Waterford MP did not live to see the annihilation of his party in the general election two years later. Parliamentary Party survivors, such as John Dillon, Joe Devlin and Redmond’s son William, squabbled over the leadership, but they were fighting over a corpse. There are obvious similarities with those now agitating to replace Micheál Martin. The Dublin Bay South byelection was the worst result

Fianna Fáil has ever recorded. But even before the count, the extent of the party’s decline had been laid bare. Forty years ago, when I worked for Vivion de Valera’s Irish Press, there was not a constituency anywhere in the country where a Fianna Fáil by-election victory could be entirely ruled out. In 2021, nobody gave the party the slightest chance of winning Dublin Bay South. As it turned out, the FF candidate’s performance was even worse than expected and I have to wonder if there is now a constituency anywhere that the party can be certain of winning in a by-election. Will Fianna Fáil join Redmond’s nationalists as a chapter in Irish political history, interesting but of no modern relevance? It has some good representatives who won’t vanish

overnight but the party seems likely to fade away with the best of its activists drifting into Fine Gael, as Parliamentary Party members drifted into Cumann na nGaedheal in the early years of the Free State. The alternative may be a merged party, Fine Fáil as the joke already goes. Either way, the party of Dev will be no more. And what of Labour, the victors of Dublin Bay South? Down the years that party has done the State some service as has its new TD, Ivana Bacik, who has been to the fore in campaigns that have changed Ireland for the better. She was an exceptional candidate, but she will have to work hard to retain the seat at a general election and those who see her victory as a new dawn for Labour may be disappointed.

Labour has fallen to a level from where it may be impossible to regain its position as a major player in Irish politics. I’m not sure what the cutoff line is, but with only seven TDs the party is perilously close to it. If Labour slips further at the next general election it will join the huddle of little leftish parties whose elected members operate like independents, treating the Dáil more as a debating society than as a chamber in which they can effect important legislation. During the half-century from 1932, Labour partnered with Fine Gael to give Ireland an alternative to Fianna Fáil governments. The party has its own policies and traditions, but the decline of FF has taken away an historic reason for its existence. If Fianna Fáil goes, can Labour be far behind?

Too young to die, too precious to lose, Precious people are very few, That’s why Paul, there was only one of you, That awful day you left us, Is always on my mind, And though I try to reason why, No answers can I find, God must of known how much I’d hurt, The day He made us part, When He took away my lovely son, He surely broke my heart, He must have had his reasons, A mystery, still to me, He must have had a special place, That no one else can fill, I miss your sunny nature, Your smiling, happy face, And no one else in the world, Could ever take your place, You’ll never be forgotten, Paul I’m sure you know that’s true, You can’t forget someone you love, As much as I love you, One special person, One special face, And in my heart a special place, Paul no words, no verse can really say, What I feel on this day, I want to tell you something Paul, So there won’t be any doubt, You’re so wonderful to think of But so hard to live without. - Missed and loved always, from your heartbroken Mam Paul, When we last saw your smiling face, You looked so bright & well, Little did we know that day, was to be your last farewell, Novena to the Sacred Heart Dear Heart of Jesus, in the past I have asked for many favours, this time I ask for this one special favour (mention favour). Take it Dear Jesus and place it within Your own broken heart, where Your Father sees it. Then in His merciful eyes it will become Your favour and not mine. Say this prayer for 3 days. Promise publication and favour will be granted. Never known to fail.O.W.

To us you were someone special, Someone kind and true, You will never be forgotten Paul, For we thought the world of you, Sunshine passes and shadows fall, But love and memories outlast them all. - Missed and loved always, your brother Raymond and sister-in-law Jennifer Paul, We never knew that July day, That sorrow was so near, That God was going to take you The brother we loved so dear, Your pleasures were simple And your wants were few, You did not deserve what you went through, In our home there is a picture, With a face more precious than gold, And to us whom loved & lost you Paul, Your face will never grow old, - Missed and loved always, your sister Madeline and brother-in-law Tony Beautiful thoughts of an uncle so dear, Cherished forever with love sincere, Dear is his memory, Sweet is his name, Close to our hearts he will always remain. - Missed and loved always by Nicole, Noel, Laura and Frankie Will those who think of Paul today, A little prayer to Jesus say. - Missed and loved always from Craig, Reece, Dale. Lauren, Paul and Ethan

In loving memory of Tony Barry, late of 27 Doyle Street, whose 7th anniversary occurs on Monday the 17th of July. Tony, They say memories are golden, Well maybe that’s true, I never wanted memories, I only wanted you, A million times I’ve needed you, A million times I’ve cried, If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died, In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still, In my heart you hold a place, No one can fill, If tears could build a stairway, And heartache make a lane, I’d walk the path to Heaven, And bring you back again, Your time on earth has ended, And nothing seems the same. - I miss you so much, your loving wife Mary xxxx Dad, You went from us so suddenly, You did not say goodbye, You left us here behind you, To grieve and wonder why, Our hearts are full of memories, With pride we speak your name, Though life goes on without you, It will never be the same, We hold you close within our Novena to the Sacred Heart Dear Heart of Jesus, in the past I have asked for many favours, this time I ask for this one special favour (mention favour). Take it Dear Jesus and place it within Your own broken heart, where Your Father sees it. Then in His merciful eyes it will become Your favour and not mine. Say this prayer for 3 days. Promise publication and favour will be granted. Never known to fail.O.W.

Dad, There never comes a moment, That we don’t think of you, Or a day that passes, That your face is not in view, And when we’re feeling lonely, And tears come to our eyes, We think of you at peace now, And we know we should not cry, We try to hide the heartache, As you want us to, And when we shed a tear, No one knows but you. - From your son Ian and daughter-in-law Sue Dad, I hide the tears, When I speak your name, But the ache in my heart, Is still the same, Though I smile and seem carefree, No one misses you more than me, To me you were very special, What more is there to say, I only wish with all my heart, That you were here today. - From your daughter Aoife Grandad, What we’d give if we could say, “Hello Grandad”, in the same old way, To hear your voice, see you smile, To sit with you and chat awhile, So you who have your grandad, Cherish him with care, For you’ll never know the heartache, Till you see his vacant chair, - Love you so much, miss you, from your grandkids Chloe, Adam & Lauren Dylan

Super Swarms!

book of the week

with Justin Ivory

Flying ants emerging from a colony in my back garden (Photo Justin Ivory) We have arrived at the time of the year when the media is full of sensationalist headlines about invasions of flying ants of apocalyptic and biblical plague proportions! Relax! Flying ant season is here. It is a perfectly natural, normal, and harmless annual phenomenon. Flying ants are known as alates. In most cases the flying ants we see are the sexually mature queens and males of the Black Garden Ant (Lasius niger). The larger individuals are the queens. These annual swarming events coincide with periods of hot, humid and calm weather, and typically happen in July and August. In the weeks leading up to a swarming event you often see heaps of soil appearing above the colony nests. In an ant colony the queen lays eggs, most of which develop into female workers. When the colony is ready the queen produces new, virgin queens and males. These both have wings. The swarming events are these males (drones) and virgin queens (princesses) leaving the colony. Other colonies in the area are also doing the same at the same time. The drones and princesses scatter on exit to maximise the chances of mating between different colonies. This reduces inbreeding and maintains genetic diversity. The larger winged females can often be seen flying joined together with a smaller winged male in what is referred to as the nuptial flight. Females will mate with several males. After mating the males die. Mated queens will chew off their wings and go about establishing a new colony at a suitable nest site. The sperm a queen receives during her nuptial flight is enough for her to lay fertilised eggs for her whole lifetime. A queen could live upto 15 years and lay thousands of eggs in that time. Flying in such large numbers offers protection against predators and increases the chances of reproduction. Swarming days provide a welcome protein feast for gulls, swifts, house martins, swallows and other birds and animals. visiting Ireland in larger groups the same could happen here.

TV of the week

HOROSCOPES

series of the week

the 32: anthology Paul McVeigh (editor)

Anna Geary: Why Girls Quit Sport RTE2, Thursday July 22, 9.30pm (Part 2)

MYTH & MOGUL: JOHN DELOREAN Netflix (date TBC in July)

THE 32 is a celebration of working-class voices from Ireland, edited by award-winning novelist Paul McVeigh. It’s an intimate and illuminating collection ranging from memoirs and essays from established and emerging Irish voices, including Kevin Barry, Dermot Bolger, Roddy Doyle, Lisa McInerney, Lyra McKee and others. It’s a collectiion that shows how working-class writers had to overcome the hurdles they came up against compared with those faced by writers from more affluent backgrounds. The 32 sees writers who have made that leap reach back to give a helping hand to those coming up behind them.

IN episode one of this two-part programme, everyone’s favourite coach, Anna Geary, hoped to gain a deeper understanding of the drop-out rate of girls in sports, showing teenage girls the positives they can gain from being physically active by forming a Gaelic football team. In part two, Anna meets psychotherapist Joanna Fortune to learn how the lockdowns have affected teenagers disproportionately and the impact this is going to have on their futures. Her philosophy: once the process is enjoyable, and not just about winning, you enjoyed it more.

JOHN DeLorean has been a much-loved subject for documentary-makers and it’s not hard to see why from this three-part series. The legendary car-company founder’s dramatic rise and fall is examined here, with the fall as always being what most viewers want to know all about. (In the trailer for the film, Framing John DeLorean, son Zachary says: “It’s got cocaine, hot chicks, sports cars, bombed-out buildings, Margaret Thatcher, Ronald Reagan, FBI agents and hard-core drug dealers.”). This series focuses more on the creation of the famous cars but does lift the bonnet, more subtly, on the dirty mechanics of it all.

guinness storehouse www.guinness-storehouse.com

summer wine collection Aldi.ie

THE Guinness Storehouse is back open following a six-month closure and the iconic Guinness Gates on Market Street have been painted for the very first time in their history by acclaimed Dublin-based artist Aches (pictured). The work ‘Together Stronger’ takes inspiration taken from an old Irish proverb — ‘Ní neart go cur le chéile’ – there is no strength without unity. The Storehouse has a new range of immersive experiences for visitors too — including a nice creamy pint — as well as some fantastic food options for families. Booking is available online now.

IF you’re stuck in Ireland pining for those summer wines from the Med, then at least you have the option to reach for one of Aldi’s wines, with plenty of European reds, whites, rosés and sparkle to choose from. The new selection of affordable wines come from Spain, France, Italy, Portugal and South Africa, so you can let your taste buds do the travelling. Our choice, given the rather nice summer we’ve been having, is a chilled bottle of Contevedo Sparkling White Wine, at €6.99, which received silver at the London Wine Competition 2020.

weber barbie recipies www.weber.com WHEN your neighbour pokes their nose over the fence and issues that Barbie invitation, dread descends at the thoughts of packs of 60 chicken wings for €4.99 from the local thrift store being cremated and served up with sticky ribs. YOU can be the exception this summer with Weber’s recipes, which teach you how to serve up everything from Smokey Lime and Chili Chicken (pictured), to kebabs and steaks, done the right way, on the barbie — not dried, tough and springy. There is even a recipe for Barbecued Seafood Paella, which is sure to put that neighbour back in his box.

inhaler It Won’t Always Be Like This

jigsaw 24-hour gaming marathon www.jigsaw.ie/24-hour-gaming-marathonfor-youth-mental-health.

THE long-awaited debut album by the young Dublin band who met at school (does that story sound familiar?) and have steadily honed their skills, confidence and sound over the last two or three years has finally been released. Fair enough, they have a family connection to a major Irish band (Google it if you have been seriously locked down over the last year) but Inhaler should be judged on their own merits. They are are a solid prospect in their own right and there are some wonderful songs here. Check it out.

JIGSAW, the youth mental health charity, is hosting an exciting 24-hour live stream gaming marathon to raise money to support young people’s mental health. It will involve lots of gaming fun and challenges, as well as some surprise special guests. The pandemic has been a particularly tough time for young people and for many, gaming was the great escape to ease their daily stresses and anxieties. It takes place on July 24th and registration can be done online.

Waterford’s Imagine Arts Festival www.imagineartsfestival.com/ BROADCASTER and comedian Colm O’Regan will take to the stage for a much-needed dose of comedy on Saturday, October 23rd at the Theatre Royal for Waterford’s Imagine Arts Festival and YOU can be part of it . . . if you think you’re funny. Festival organisers have announced a ‘So you think you’re funny!’ competition for an up and coming comic to win a paid support spot on the night. To enter you need to record a 3-minute video and email it to imaginefestofficial@gmail.com by August 13th. Event takes place October 23rd.
