Dingle Film Club Open to Everyone Tuesday Nights 8.45pm

The feature at the next Dingle Film Club at the Phoenix Cinema on Tuesday 21st February will be “Jackie”. Starring the Oscar nominated Natalie Portman in the titular role, the film is a portrait of one of the most important and tragic moments in American history, seen through the eyes of the iconic First Lady, then Jacqueline Kennedy. Jackie places us in her world during the days immediately following her husband’s assassination. Known for her extraordinary dignity and poise, here we see a portrait of the First Lady as she fights to establish her husband’s legacy and the world of “Camelot” that she created and loved so well. The following week on Tuesday 28th February the feature will be the the eagerly awaited “T2 Trainspotting” . Twenty years after Danny Boyle’s groundbreaking original hit the screens the crew are back together. Much has changed but just as much remains the same. Mark Renton returns to the only place he can ever call home.They are waiting for him: Spud, Sick Boy, and Begbie. Other old friends are waiting too: sorrow, loss, joy, vengeance, hatred, friendship, love, longing, fear, regret, diamorphine, self-destruction and mortal danger, they are all lined up to welcome him, ready to join the dance. An intoxicating, emotionally resonant postscript to its classic predecessor 4 West Kerry Live

Farming News

Louis Murchan

Nitrates Derogation Applications 2017 The Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine, Michael Creed, TD, has announced that 2017 Nitrates Derogation applications can now be submitted on-line. Farmers are advised to contact their agricultural advisor to determine if they should avail of this facility. The Nitrates Derogation provides farmers an opportunity to farm at higher stocking rates, subject to certain conditions designed to protect the environment and meet the requirements of the Nitrates Directive. The derogation is an important facility for more intensive farmers. Almost 7,000 intensively stocked farmers availed of the derogation in 2016. The online system is aimed at simplifying the application process and assisting farmers to avoid penalties. Farmers can also remain compliant with the Regulations by managing their livestock numbers, exporting enough slurry/farmyard manure or renting additional land. The closing date for applications is 31st March 2017 and End of year Nitrogen and Phosphorus statements (N&P statements) for 2016 are available on the Department’s online system www.agfood.ie. Farmers who exceeded the limits in 2016 based on their cattle numbers will be advised in writing of this shortly but these figures will not have taken into consideration any documentation submitted to the Department by 31st December 2016. Text messages issued to those farmers who were approaching the limits in 2016 and receipt of such a text should act as a reminder to those farmers to consider applying for a Nitrates Derogation this year. The Nitrates Derogation allows farmers to exceed the limit of 170 kg of livestock manure nitrogen per hectare set down in the Nitrates Regulations, up to a maximum of 250 kg per hectare, subject to adherence to stricter rules. For a Nitrates Derogation application to be valid, all terms and conditions of the Derogation must be adhered to, including the following: • An annual application must be made online to the Department. No postal applications will be accepted. • Farming a holding that is at least 80% grass. Have grazing livestock – derogation is only available in respect of grazing livestock. • Have a Fertilisation Plan in place on the holding by 1st March. This plan should be submitted to the Department along with the application form unless the farmer has submitted a fertiliser plan to the Department in 2014, 2015 or 2016. • Fertiliser plans must be based on soil analysis results dated after 15th September 2013. • Applicants who have never previously applied for a derogation, or last applied in 2012 or earlier, and do not have soil analysis results must assume Index 3 for 2017 but soil sample analysis, in respect of crop year 2018, must be available and the fertiliser plan amended accordingly and submitted online to the Department before 31st March 2018. • Fertiliser accounts must be submitted to the Department no later than 31st March of the following year. • Farmers in derogation cannot import livestock manure €800,000 for a Social Farming Network and a number of projects Projects that received funding this year under the CEDRA Rural Innovation and Development Fund totalling €804,825, for initiatives to promote and develop social farming projects in rural areas. Social farming allows people, who are availing of a range of health service supports, the opportunity to participate in farming activities in their local area. Working on farming and horticulture projects has helped many participants to improve their wellbeing and grow their confidence. For participating farm families, social farming has proved a very worthwhile and satisfying activity which contributes to the local community. Social farming initiatives are a reflection of the proverb “(there is no strength without unity”. The Department of Ag’s funding of social farming projects, and the establishment of a Social Farming Network, will be of real benefit to local rural communities. Minister Creed has allocated funding of €542,325 to two social farming projects as part of a competitive tender process under the CEDRA scheme. Two additional social farming project proposals were awarded part-funding of €250,000. Down Syndrome Ireland (Cork Branch) was awarded funding of €137,000 to develop a horticultural centre for adults with Down Syndrome. Funding of €113,000 was awarded to Leitrim Development Company, in collaboration with University College Dublin (UCD), to establish a social farming best practice project for both local and national audiences. Finally, the Department provided sponsorship of €12,500 to Barry Kavanagh for his award-winning social farming garden at Bloom 2016, which helped to raise awareness and promote the concept of social farming.

Results of Badger Vaccine Trial Despite many views to the opposite, it is believed by many that the badger is a much-maligned little creature. Continued efforts by both sides have endeavoured to either vindicate or accuse the poor animal of complicity in the spread of TB. Now, the Agriculture Minister has the publication of the results of a scientific research project which involved the administration of an oral vaccine to badgers, to investigate its impact against bovine tuberculosis in a large scale field trial in Co Kilkenny. The results of the trial were very positive in that they demonstrated that the oral vaccination of badgers has a significant protective effect in badgers under natural conditions. The findings confirmed the results of earlier studies where BCG vaccine was given to captive badgers by a variety of routes, including oral innoculation. The findings are also consistent with the results of other oral vaccination studies in cattle, deer and wild boar. DAFM’s ambition is to deploy a full badger vaccination strategy as part of the eradication programme provided that the vaccination of badgers delivers an outcome equivalent to the current badger removal strategy. In this regard, the Minister emphasised that the vaccine trial in question related to the protective effect of vaccination against TB in badgers and did not provide any direct evidence of the protective effect of badger vaccination in relation to TB in cattle. Further trials are currently being conducted in six separate locations throughout the country, involving the vaccination by intramuscular injection, of several hundred badgers over 3 to 4 years, with continuous monitoring of the cattle population to assess the impact of the vaccine on the incidence of the disease in the cattle population. The outcome of these field trials, the initial results of which are due in 2018, will eventually determine whether the vaccination of badgers delivers an outcome equivalent to the current badger removal strategy. The report concluded that any vaccination programme would need to be undertaken against a background of an exhaustive investigation of cattle and herd management related factors and take account of related environmental issues. Furthermore, one of the conclusions to be drawn from the Report was that, given the relatively high incidence of TB in the country, it is likely that vaccination alone, even at high coverage levels, would require many years to eradicate the disease in the badger population. However, other studies conducted by the Department have shown that mixed strategies incorporating culling (to reduce badger density/remove infected badgers) and vaccination can be effective and may be a cost effective way of eradicating the disease. There is currently no TB vaccine licensed for anything other than humans in Ireland and, as mentioned in the report, prior to widespread deployment of oral vaccine containing live BCG, a vaccine will need to be licensed as a veterinary medicine and receive authorisation from regulatory bodies under EU medicines legislation. The report provided valuable evidence that vaccinating badgers can be an effective means of reducing the incidence of TB in badgers. This research project was led by scientists at UCD, with contributions from other colleagues and was funded by the Dept. of Agriculture, Food and the Marine. Gorse Fires Farmers are advised that with no extension to the burning season, for the umpteenth season, they should complete all burning before the 28th February. It is illegal to burn after this date, due to the commencement of the nesting season in birds, and general wildlife’s breeding season. The weather has been very suitable since 1st September 2016, and there is no reason that all necessary burning cannot be complete by the end of the month. Land owners are reminded that it is illegal, under the Wildlife Acts, to burn growing vegetation on uncultivated land between 1st March and 31st August and that persons engaged in such illegal activity are liable to prosecution. The Department also warns landowners that land found to have been burned during the specified closed season for burning would be considered automatically ineligible under the various support schemes, and that a variety of detection systems, including satellite based systems, were now in place to detect fire hotspots and trigger more detailed eligibility inspections where required. Suspicious activity should be reported to the Gardaí and uncontrolled or unattended fires should be reported immediately to the Fire and Emergency Services. Forest owners must be especially vigilant in protecting their investments. You must remember the few simple rules, notify the fire service, (and gardai, out of courtesy) as to when the fire sill begin and end, have sufficient manpower with you, (including a safety man) and proper communication and safety gear with you, choose a day with mild weather conditions and don’t light a fire within “an asses-roar” of a forest, of domestic dwellings. Generally, use common sense and be mindful of other, both land-owners and the general public. And finally,……..stay safe. - Contact Louis Murchan Tel;- 087-2857938

Don’t Let Heartburn Become a Burning Issue! Irene Ní Fhlannúra Almost everyone experiences a bout of heartburn or acid reflux at some stage in their lives and are grateful for the quick relief offered by some over-thecounter (OTC) indigestion remedies such as antacids. However, for many people, taking antacids and acid suppressants becomes an everyday measure to alleviate the chronic occurrence of heartburn and more worryingly, used to “prevent” heartburn or acid reflux. Heartburn occurs when gastric juices including corrosive hydrochloric acid leaks from the stomach and enters the oesophagus (the tube connecting the mouth with the stomach) and irritate the linings of the oesophagus. A tight muscular ring called the oesophageal sphincter is responsible for keeping those juices in the stomach where they belong but sometimes this junction fails causing heartburn and acid reflux. Antacids work by chemically neutralizing the acid providing a short-term solution to halt the irritation in the oesophagus. The health problems that can occur with long-term use of antacids can be quite varied and depend on the active ingredient of the chosen antacid. The most common active ingredients found in OTC antacids are calcium carbonate, magnesium, aluminum or sodium bicarbonate (bread soda). Common to all antacids are the problems associated with altered acidity in the stomach. The stomach is designed to secrete hydrochloric acid as well as other enzymes to help breakdown meat and solid food in preparation for digestion further down the intestinal tract. Constant use of antacids hinders this process making digestion difficult and often incomplete. Food that remains undigested in the stomach will be broken down eventually - though mostly by decomposition (rotting) and putrefaction. Another important role for stomach acid is to kill harmful bacteria and other micro-organisms that enter our bodies through food and water - everyday interference of acid production is weakening this line of defense allowing bacteria to flourish and making us more susceptible to infections. Stomach acid is necessary for the absorption of many minerals and vitamin B12. Many recent studies looking at the long-term use of OTC antacids as well as over- prescribed acid suppressants such as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) have shown a marked increase in mineral deficiencies such as calcium, zinc, magnesium and iron - and the knock-on effects of which include anaemia, osteoporosis, heart problems and mental health issues to name a few! Unravelling the cause of heartburn and acid reflux and treating the cause is the safest and most effective way of dealing with the discomfort. Factors that weaken the tight junction between the stomach and the oesophagus include obesity, smoking, caffeine, alcohol, bacteria imbalance and structural defects eg., hiatus hernia. It is not wise to ignore these factors in pursuit of a quick fix which may have detrimental side effects with long-term use. Interestingly, peppermint can relax this sphincter, loosening the junction, and is not recommended for those with heartburn and acid reflux. Curiously, it is a common ingredient in many OTC antacids as well as toothpaste, after dinner drinks and some herbal remedies. While peppermint is beneficial further down the diMICHELLE FLANNERY NATURAL HEALTH TREATMENTS "Smell is a potent wizard that transports us across thousands of miles and all the years we have lived" Helen Keller Book your Aromatherapy Massage today from €30 (30 min) with Michelle at 087 1366201, Dingle 066 9151360 www.renuanaturalhealth.com

gestive tract in cases of spasms and cramps, if reflux is present it is best avoided or at least, choose an enteric-formula that will not effect the upper GI tract. Losing weight, giving up some of the vices and identifying any trigger foods will go a long way to dealing with your heartburn head on. Fried food and fatty foods- pastries, chocolate and cream are common triggers. Other useful measures include chewing food until it is liquid before swallowing. Avoid overeating - eat smaller meals throughout the day and always eat at ease and relaxed. Do not lie down after eating and sleep with your upper body elevated if heartburn is a problem at night. Helpful herbs include gentian, meadowsweet leaf, marshmallow root, chamomile, licorice root and slippery elm. They help to absorb acid, soothe and repair irritated intestinal linings. Probiotics in powder or chewable form can reduce the pressure on the oesophageal sphincter caused by gas in the stomach. Activated charcoal works in a similar way and is an age-old remedy for many digestive disorders. The fact that heartburn is a common ailment does not mean that it is harmless or insignificant. Long-term masking of symptoms can often hide serious health problems. Chronic reflux is the most common symptom associated with oesophageal cancer, therefore warrants investigation. Not to frighten the bejaysus out of anyone, heartburn can usually be resolved through diet and lifestyle changes. It might take a little longer to unravel the cause but the long term benefits will always outweigh a short-term fix. Happy Valentine’s Day to all – may your hearts only burn with desire!

A Fresh Start Would you like help to break free of unhealthy habits and create a new, different future? Irene and Michelle Flannery (Ní Fhlannúra) of Ré Nua Natural Health, Dingle, will facilitate a weekend programme from March 10-12, 2017 to help you let go of unhealthy habits and make a fresh start. Susan Browne will guide you in getting clear about what it is you are moving towards, with a combination of powerful EFT tapping rounds, affirmations and positive visualisations. “Sometimes when we are trying to break a habit or pattern we are very much focused on stopping something and can be critical of ourselves for “still not having done it”. We will look at compassion for the self but also how to teach the brain to think differently, in terms of moving towards something very positive and living life the way you would really love to. “ - Susan Browne, GoE EFT Trainer, Bestselling Author and Accredited Counsellor Irene will teach you how to overcome old patterns by feeding your body not your cravings. She will show you how to use food therapeutically to heal and restore your body and mind. She will also create the Sunday lunch banquet at The Dingle Cookery School. “To create beautiful meals for yourself is a powerful expression of self-love and self-worth” - Irene Ní Fhlannúra, Nutritional Therapist, Natural Health Advocate, Speaker & Writer Michelle will share how energy healing and bodywork act as a catalyst to release and clear built-up stress and let go of negative beliefs and emotions. This is an important part of the process of freeing ourselves from destructive patterns. As stress, negative beliefs and emotions melt away solutions to problems arise effortlessly. Brenda Flannery (Angel Realms) will open the Saturday evening session with a Guided Meditation to clear old holding patterns and cut negative attachments. Maria Daly will lead us through a gentle set of Tai Chi exercises on Sunday morning to teach us how to incorporate using movement as a medicine. There will be a group session each day for ongoing support. What will your life look like when you have kicked the habit(s) and brought in new health ones? Cost €180 (Deposit €50) - Includes all workshops, group sessions, light refreshments & Sunday lunch at Dingle Cookery School, There are a variety of Ré Nua Nutrition Clinic & Healing Room treatments available to participants at special prices on Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons by appointment.

Excerpts From A Dingle Diary By Ted Creedon Sunday, February 8, 1987. Took the kids to 11 o’clock Mass to hear another sermon on the theme ‘the end of the world is near’. After lunch we went for a cycle to Beenbawn and walked to the lighthouse. It was so warm that we had to open jackets and remove caps while walking along the cliff path. It’s being reported that over 100,000 people are suffering from AIDS in Zaire.

Monday, February 9. A fine start to the day but turned to heavy rain by lunchtime which caused a lot of local flooding. The fire brigade was pumping water out of O’Flaherty’s pub and the Mall was badly flooded during the high tide. Rival factions have vandalised all the large election posters around Dingle. Maybe some mischief makers are involved? John Kennedy of the VEC called to the house and asked if I’d run a course in heritage appreciation for primary school teachers. I thanked him and recommended Isabel Houlihan.

Tuesday, February 10. Cold and showery today. Letter from Patricia O’Hare, Director of the Castleisland District Archaeological Survey looking for advice on how to secure funding to publish the survey results. We were very fortunate to secure funding from the ESB to publish the Dingle survey, thanks to local man Paddy Moriarty from Dúnsíon - the boss of the ESB. It’s almost a year since former president Marcos left the Philippines and it’s reported that his wife, Imelda, left over 1000 pairs of shoes behind.

Wednesday, February 11. Very wintery weather today with heavy hail showers. The kids get a lift to school every morning from Máire Flahive of Kinard who teaches in the CBS Primary school. One of the teachers at the CBS Secondary school is Joe Creedon from Macroom and we discovered that we’re cousins. His grandfather and mine were brothers.

Thursday, February 12. Cool, frosty and fresh with sunny spells today. Charlie Haughey and Garret Fitzgerald met in a much publicised live debate on TV tonight. It was a clear win for Garret who was 14 West Kerry Live

more incisive in his points but Charlie won points for his attack on the proposed Fine Gael budget. The executive board of the International Olympic Committee is in favour of letting tennis millionaires take part in next year’s Olympics in Seoul. There goes the illusion of amateurism in the Olympics.

Friday, February 13. The former manager of Ballyferriter Co-op, Micheál MacGiobúin, is proposing to set up a £1 million salmon farm in Smerwick harbour. According to today’s edition of The Kerryman ‘ The project has generated a lot of heat in the area’. A court in America has awarded $7 million in damages against the United Klans of America after a young black man was lynched by the KKK in 1981.

Saturday, February 14. It’s a bit early yet but it looks at this stage that Fianna Fáil are on course to win an overall majority in the General Election which is only three days away now. But Garret Fitzgerald and Dessie O’Malley are making sounds like potential coalition partners. An Post is bringing out ‘love’ stamps to mark Valentine’s Day.

Sunday, February 15. Rained all night and early but stopped by 10.30. Went to 11am Mass. There’s a big banner across the street at Holy Ground which says ‘MacGearailt Fianna Fáil’ while outside St Mary’s church there’s a big sign saying ‘Dingle - keep your T.D. Vote Begley No. 1’. After Mass, Tom Fitzgerald was singing the praises of Breandán MacGearailt outside the church. Fine Gael have jumped in the opinion polls as a result of Fitzgerald’s win over Haughey in the TV debate and Garret has urged his supporters to give their transfers to the Progressive Democrats - not to FG’s outgoing coalition partner Labour there’s going to be a mighty scrap! Spent an hour throwing the javelin in the big field across the road.

Monday, February 16. A fine clear sunny day with a return to cold easterly winds. Rang Patricia O’Hare of the Castleisland Archaeological survey and we discussed how to get sponsorship to publish their results. Phone call from county library to say the

AGM of the KAHS will be held next Monday. Must prepare a speech.

Tuesday, February 17. Today was Polling Day and from 9am to 9pm the voting was brisk in the cities while in the west commentators were saying that thousands of eligible voters were gone to America. Went to the Convent national school to vote after tea in booth no:4. It was busy at the entrance to the school yard where you were given a ‘look’ by the gauntlet of supporters of one candidate or the other. This ‘look’ could be hopeful, hostile, friendly or even threatening. Just before we reached the sanctuary of the school we were accosted by one such supporter. ‘Looking for your support’ he said in a low voice. Touting or pimping I’d call it. There was another supporter wedged in the school doorway so his unfriendly and intimidating look had to be resisted and another supporter in the hallway to give us the final once-over look.

Wednesday, February 18. The election count began at 9am. Despite predictions there was no big swing to Fianna Fáil - Fine Gael were being hammered - the Progressive Democrats were predicting 16 seats - Dick Spring was going to lose his seat - all the ingredients of a cliff-hanger and that’s exactly what we got so that by late into the night it looked like being a hung Dáil again with the balance of power being held by the Independents. Breandán MacGearailt didn’t make it in South Kerry while Tom McEllistrim was defeated in North Kerry and Dick Spring scraped home with a margin of just 4 votes!

"The fundraiser is to raise money to develop an Organic Sensory Garden that will benefit 54 children at this fantastic school located on the grounds of St. Mary of the Angels in Beaufort", said Jacqueline Riordan (Secretarty of the committee) from Glenbeigh. "As a proud mother of a child attending this school we established a committee to try and support these amazing children. The school motto has always focused on each childs ability, not their disability. St Francis Special School enables, encourages and enriches each child attending this school. Some of the children have Autism, learning disabilitiess and sensory processing difficulties. This garden wil be a year round educational resource for the children. So much teaching and learning can go on in the garden. A polytunnel would enable the children to access the outdoors during colder months".

Pork Belly, Buttered Cabbage, Sweet Potato and Apple Puree Mark Murphy Dingle Cookery School

50ml water

What is not to like about some slow cooked pork belly? If you get a nice pork belly from the butchers (it is no harm to give the butcher a few days’ notice) there should be some firm meat nestled between layers of fat. It needs to be cooked slowly to allow some of the fat to melt down giving it a succulent flavour. For this recipe I have cured it slightly the day before I cook it, this helps it to firm up a little and adds a more subtle flavour. You would imagine that this makes it very complicated, however you will find if you follow the recipe it is in fact very easy. For the recipe I have served it as if I would in a restaurant but if you want to make it easier, simply serve it family style by slicing the cooked pork on a board and placing this in the centre of the table and then place all the vegetables and purée in separate bowls. Serves 4

To cure the pork belly

Ingredients To cure the pork belly 1kg Pork Belly handful of sea salt 1 tsp. fennel seeds, crushed To cook the pork belly 1 large onion, cut into rough dice 1 bulb of garlic, cut in half 2 carrots, roughly diced 1 bunch of thyme and rosemary handful of fennel seeds 500ml cider For the cabbage ½ head of Savoy cabbage, finely shredded 50g butter salt and pepper 2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into discs (60cm x 40cm approx.) knob of butter a few thyme sprigs

Method You must start this a day beforehand. Mix the salt and fennel seeds together. Rub this all over the flesh of the pork belly. Put this on a tray and cover with some cling film. Leave in the fridge for about 12 hours. Following this remove, it from the fridge and wash it under a running tap. Pat this dry and now it is ready to cook. To cook the pork Preheat the oven to 130ºc. Put the onions, garlic, carrots, thyme, rosemary and fennel seeds in a large roasting tray. Put the pork on top of the vegetables and season with salt and pepper. Add the cider and cover the tray with foil. Put this in the oven and cook for about 4 ½ hours. Pierce it with a knife to check if it is done, if the knife the pierces the flesh easily the pork is done. Once you are happy it is done remove it from the oven and leave to cool slightly. To make a sauce Strain the liquid into a small pot. Put this over a medium heat and reduce for about 10-15 minutes. Add a little butter and some salt and pepper. For the cabbage Cook the shredded cabbage in a large pot of salt water for about 2-3 minutes. Strain the cabbage and add it to a pot along with some butter. Cook for 2 minutes until the butter has melted and coated the cabbage. Season with salt and pepper. For the sweet potato Heat a pan over a medium heat, once it is hot add a little oil and then a little butter. Add the sweet potato and let them brown on each side for about 4 minutes. Turn down the heat and add the stock and thyme. Let this cook for about 15 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are a little tender when pierced with a knife. There should be very little stock left once they are cooked as the sweet potato will soak up the stock. Season with salt and pepper. For the apple purée Put all of the ingredients in a pot. Cook this over a medium heat for about 15 minutes. Add the mixture to a blender and bring to a smooth purée. Season with salt and pepper. To serve Place a little cabbage in the centre of a plate. Spoon a little apple purée around the cabbage. Place a sweet potato disc to the side of the cabbage. After slicing the pork belly place 3 slices on top of the cabbage and drizzle some of the sauce over the top. Enjoy !!!

250ml chicken stock salt and pepper For the apple purée 4 cooking apples, peeled and diced 40g butter, diced 1 tbsp. brown sugar salt and pepper

accused of using motors in the Tour de France, it’s refreshing to watch Proprietors: Melanie Brosnan & E players who are not suspiciously close to perfection. In contrast to hyper coached players endlessly focussed on “controlling the controllables” it may be no harm to be a bit amateur. It may be no harm to be spontaneous. It may be no harm to look like you’re actually enjoying the sport you play. People might be ready for a bit of naivety and a bit of romance and a bit of innocence. The good ol’ days could be the future for women’s rugby.

Proprietors: Melanie Brosnan & Elaine Higgins

Colin Sheeran

It’s a world cup year for the women’s rugby team and the tournament is being hosted in Ireland in August. Ireland are currently WE ARE ranked 4th in the world and have achieved notoriety with a recent grand slam (2013) and a notable victory over New Zealand (2014). How many watch women’s rugby and come the autumn will many go to the games? There are not hundreds of thousands of die hard women’s rugby fans but the popularity is growing. The surge of interest in rugby in Ireland in the last 10 years has had knock on effects at all levels of the game, televised women’s and under 20’s games are testament to that. The women will never match the men for size and strength. Natural differences are multiplied by differing under age structures and professionalism. However the gap in skill and speed is reducing all the time. As the women make gains across the board, the men’s game is plateauing. The women’s skillset is already above the level to play a high level technical game. Having smaller, lighter, high-skilled players makes for a faster, more open game and that is the opportunity for the women’s game; to hit the sweet spot where skill and size are still in balance. Watching a good women’s game inspires a feeling heading for nostalgia. Nostalgia for the simple world of pre-professional rugby. When you supported players who looked like they were from the same planet as you and if they were wearing the Green, they were Irish. Men’s rugby has made a lot of gains but it has had a few losses. The men’s game can be bogged down in the lowest common denominator, giants cancelling each other out. Much of the individualism has been ground flat between the twin mills stones of systematic play and increased physicality.

Pleanáil Teanga do Bhaile Seirbhíse Gaeltachta Language planning for Gaeltacht Service Town Tá An Lab sásta a fhógairt go bhfuilimid roghnaithe tré phróiséas comhairliúcháin le príomh-eagrais pobail bhaile Daingean Uí Chúis, Roinn na Gaeltachta, Údarás na Gaeltachta agus Foras na Gaeilge chun a bheith ina eagras ceannródaíoch chun Plean Teanga a chur le chéile do bhaile Daingean Uí Chúis. Déanfar seo i gcomhar leis na páirtithe leasmhara agus pobal na háite. Sa mhéid thíos, gheobhfar míniú agus cur síos ar bhunús an phróiséis seo mar atá sé leagtha síos ‘sna Treoirlínte Pleanála Teanga foilsithe ag an Roinn Ealaíon, Oidhreachta agus Gaeltachta i gcomhar le hÚdarás na Gaeltachta agus Foras na Gaeilge.

An Lab is pleased to announce that we have been chosen, through a process of consultation with the principal community organisations in Dingle, together with Roinn na Gaeltachta, Údarás na Gaeltachta and Foras na Gaeilge, to be the lead organisation in the preparation of a Language Plan for the town. This will be done in tandem with the relevant bodies and with the community. In the ensuing paragraphs you will find an explanation and description of the process as laid down in the Guidelines for Language Planning published by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht together with Údarás na Gaeltachta and Foras na Gaeilge.

Is dúshlán mór an tionscnamh seo don Lab ach táimid ag súil go mór le bheith ag obair go dlúth le muintir an bhaile agus le bheith ag tacú leo chun a gcuid smaointí agus riachtanaisí maidir leis an dteanga a chur in iúl.

This project is a big challenge for An Lab but we are looking forward to working closely with the townspeople and to supporting them in communicating their thoughts and needs regarding the Irish Language.

Tuigimid go bhfuil ard-mheas agus cion ag furmhór de phobal An Daingin ar an nGaeilge, go bhfuil sí á labhairt go rialta i gcuid mhaith tithe agus siopaí agus ar na sráideanna. Is cuid thábhachtach í de shaol an bhaile; cabhraíonn sí leis, chun na sluaite a mealladh chughainn gach bliain. Deis atá sa phlean seo chun cur leis an líon daoine a labhraíonn Gaeilge, chun tacú leo siúd atá ag foghlaim agus chun cur leis na háiseanna is leis na hócáidí a gcabhróidh leis an bpobal a theanga dhúchais a chur chun chinn. Tugtar feidhm reachtúil don phróiseas pleanála teanga in Acht na Gaeltachta 2012, áit a leagtar síos an próiseas faoina bhféadfaidh pobail i gceantair éagsúla aitheantas a bhaint amach mar Limistéir Pleanála Teanga Ghaeltachta, mar Bhailte Seirbhíse Gaeltachta nó mar Líonraí Gaeilge. Tá 26 Limistéar Pleanála Teanga Gaeltachta aitheanta ag an Aire Ealaíon, Oidhreachta agus Gaeltachta. Faoin Acht, déanfar an Ghaeltacht mar atá sí faoi láthair a athshainiú mar Limistéir Pleanála Teanga Ghaeltachta ach pleananna teanga a bheith aontaithe ag na pobail sna limistéir éagsúla i gcomhréir leis na critéir pleanála teanga atá forordaithe faoin Acht. Tá Údarás na Gaeltachta freagrach faoin Acht as tacaíocht a thabhairt d’eagraíochtaí maidir le hullmhú agus cur i bhfeidhm pleananna teanga sna Limistéir Pleanála Teanga Ghaeltachta. Is éard atá i gceist leis ná Bailte Seirbhíse Gaeltachta ná bailte atá suite i Limistéir Pleanála Teanga Ghaeltachta nó taobh leo agus a bhfuil ról suntasach acu maidir le seirbhísí poiblí, saoráidí áineasa, sóisialta agus tráchtála a sholáthar do nalimistéir sin. Faoin Acht, caithfidh daonra de 1,000 duine ar a laghad a bheith i mbaile, de réir an daonáirimh is deireanaí, chun gur féidir é a áireamh mar Bhaile Seirbhíse Gaeltachta. Tá Údarás na Gaeltachta freagrach faoin Acht as tacaíocht a thabhairt d’eagraíochtaí maidir le hullmhú agus cur i bhfeidhm pleananna teanga sna Limistéir Pleanála Teangacha Ghaeltachta. Tá tréimhse dhá bhliain ann chun an phlean seo a ullmhú agus seacht mbliana eile chun é a chur i bhfeidhm. Tá sé mar aidhm ag An Lab, le tacaíocht agus comhoibriú ón bpobal, an plean a bheith curtha i gcrích agus ullamh le cur ós comhair an phobail faoi dheireadh na bliana seo. Táthar ag súil go dtabharfaidh an próiseas seo spreagadh do dhaoine eile sa phobal teacht ar aghaidh le fonn agus díograis chun a bplean féin a chur i bhfeidhm.

We are well aware that most of the people of Dingle have high regard and affection for the Irish language, that it is spoken regularly in many houses, shops and on the streets. It’s an important aspect of the life of the town. It helps to attract thousands of visitors every year. This plan is an opportunity to increase the number of Irish speakers in the town, to assist those who are learning or who wish to learn, and to further the provision of facilities and occasions which will enable the community to strengthen and promote their native tongue. The language planning process acquired legal status through a Government Act - Acht na Gaeltachta 2012 in which the process was laid down through which communities in various areas can achieve recognition as a Gaeltacht Language Planning Area, as a Town Serving the Gaeltacht or as Irish Networks. 26 Language Planning Areas have been recognised by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht for the implementation of the Act. Under the Act, the Gaeltacht as it stands will be redefined as a Language Planning Area provided Language plans are agreed by the public in the various areas in accordance with the criteria for language planning laid down by the Act. A town serving the Gaeltacht is defined as a town situated in a designated Language Planning Area or nearby which has a significant role in providing public services, as well as entertainment, social and trade facilities to that area. According to the Act, a town must have a population of at least 1000, based on the most recent census, in order for it to be included as a Town Serving the Gaeltacht. Údarás na Gaeltachta is responsible under the Act for supporting organisations in the designated Gaeltacht areas in the preparation and execution of the plan. A period of up to two years is allotted for the preparation of a plan and a further seven years for its implementation. An Lab aims, with the assistance and co-operation of the public to have the plan completed and ready to be presented to the public by the end of this year. It is hoped that this process will encourage others in the community to come forward with enthusiasm and undertake the implementation of their very own plan!

Caragh Bridge Angling Club has put in place Life Saving Equipment thanks to Kerry County Council Community Support Fund. This greatly enhances safety on the river for club members and the general public. Life buoys and throw ropes are now readily available on the hazardous sections of the popular river.

Lee Strand West Kerry League 2017 The second round of the Lee Strand West Kerry League took place on the weekend of the 5th February and it saw Dingle maintain their winning record and Lispole fresh from their Munster Novice win, share the spoils with An Ghaeltacht •

Lispole 2-12 to 1-15 An Ghaeltacht

An Ghaeltacht v Annascaul

Castlegregory v Lispole

Lidl Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé 2017 The 28 th Comórtas Peile Páidí Ó Sé takes place next weekend. The famed club Gaelic football tournament and festival takes place 17th to 19th February in Comórtas HQ at Páidí Ó Sé’s pub in Ventry and various GAA venues across the Dingle Peninsula.

Eoin Ferris, Secretary of the Angling Club says that the availability of the grant gave the impetus to the club to upgrade safety on the river and are very thankful to Kerry County Council. It was very timely also as membership increased by 30% in 2016 which is great for the club. Membership increased after there was a number of salmon caught in June, and thankfully last year proved to be a good season. Eoin Ferris says “The club is very much a community river, ever since it’s inception, members and locals and tourists alike can fish for €40 per year which is outstanding value.” Last year the club allowed members to join online which is a great hit with tourists who may not be familiar with the club officers. CBAC would recommend other organisation and social groups to apply for the “Community Support Fund” as it could kickstart projects in the pipeline. The application is straightforward enough, which makes a change from other funding sources available. It is funded by Local Property Tax and the Caragh Bridge Angling community appreciates that it is being used for local projects. www.caraghbridgeangling.ie 087 442 2133

With 32 Adult men’s and ladies teams from 14 Counties, England and even the United Arab Emirates participating over the weekend in Senior, Intermediate and Junior grade competitions it has the makings of another great footballing weekend in Corca Dhuibhne. Beir bua agus beannacht! Scór na bPaistí Lios Póil are hosting Scór na bPaistí Ciarraí Thiar at Halla John L Lios Póil on Saturday 25th of February at 7pm. Please get your club to support this very important cultural event and encourage National Schools to participate.

Anso is Ansúd i gCorca Dhuibhne

anuas. Gabhaim buíochas le na héinne a chuir agus a chuireann chomh mór leis na ranganna – bíonn cad é gáirí is cuileachta againn!!

Scéalta ó Chomharchumann Forbartha Chorca Dhuibhne.

Deir Séamus O’Hara go mbaineann sé féin ana-shásamh as cúrsaí TEG: ‘Cé go bhfuil cuid de na daoine sa rang níos líofa sa teanga ná daoine eile, bíonn atmaisféar ana-dhearfach le mothú sa rang i gcónaí agus gach éinne ag spreagadh a chéile’.

Guíonn foireann an Chomharchumainn & na hOidhreachta gach aon rath ar Chiara Ní Ghairbhí a bhfuil sos á thógaint aici óna dualgaisí mar Leas-Bhainisteoir ag an gComharchumann ar feadh tréimhse. Ag súil leis go mbainfidh sí taitneamh agus tairbhe as an mbriseadh seo. Fáilte ó chroí roimis Treasa Ní Mhainín a bheidh ina hionadaí ag Ciara go ceann tamaill. Guímid gach rath ar Threasa agus í ag dul i mbun oibre sa Lárionad Gaeilge & Gaeltachta. Cuireadh fáilte roimis Seán Kyne, T.D., an tAire Stáit sa Roinn Ealaíon, Oidhreachta, Gnóthaí Réigiúnacha, Tuaithe & Gaeltachta chomh fada leis an Ionad Gaeilge agus Gaeltachta ar an Aoine, an 3ú Feabhra 2017. Ina theannta sin bhí Aodhán Mac Cormaic a ceapadh ina Stiúrthóir Gaeilge i Rannóg Gaeltachta na Roinne le fíordhéanaí. Thugadar beirt cuairt ar an Ionad Tacaíochta Teaghlaigh agus Oifigí an Chomharchumainn ar an láthair, bhuaileadar le Cathaoirleach agus le baill Choiste an Chomharchumainn chomh maith le Bainisteoir agus foireann an Chomharchumainn agus Oidhreacht Chorca agus ar na hábhair a raibh plé orthu ag cruinniúleis an Aire, bhí Plean Teanga do Chorca Dhuibhne Thiar chomh maith le forbairt na hoibre go háitiúil ag an dá eagras sna blianta atá romhainn amach.

‘Is breá liom cúrsaí TEG mar bíonn éagsúlacht mhór daoine ag freastal ar na ranganna agus cé go mbíonn an srúdú dúshlánach is fiú é a dhéanamh mar tugann sé sprioc dúinn’, a dúirt Marie Lenihan. Bhain Marie agus Séamus páirtchreidiúint amach anuraidh sa chúrsa TEG B1 agus tá an bheirt acu ag tabhairt fé B2 i mbliana. Tá na cúrsaí TEG ag dul ó neart go neart agus guímíd gach rath orthu siúd a bheidh ag tabhairt fén gcéad scrúdú cainte eile ag deireadh mhí Aibreáin – Caitríona Budhlaeir, Coláiste na hOllscoile Corcaigh. Ar na daoine a mbronnfar Teastas TEG orthu tá: Helena Zacharias, Daithí Carr, Marie Lenihan, Jim Lynch, Hazel Ní Mháille, Sadie Ní Mhuircheartaigh, Tara O’Dowd, Manuela Dei Grandi, Séamas Ó hEadhra, Zoe Uí Fhaoláin, Ian Wilson, Tim Falvey, Rita Varsanyi, Clodagh Fitzgerald agus Seámas Mac Fheorais. Comhghairdeas leis na mic léinn seo ar fad agus gabhaimid buíochas lena dteagascóirí díograiseacha Caitríona Budhlaeir agus Bernie Pháid Ní Mhuircheartaigh as a gcuid oibre ar Chúrsaí Gaeilge TEG i gCorca Dhuibhne le tamall de bhlianta anuas.

Dingle Notes. Richie Williams Firstly congratulations to Pobal Scoil Corca Dhuibhne student EMMA O CONNOR who received a Garda Youth Merit Award recently. The Ballinaboula native was nominated for her fundraising activities which included Bru Columbanus the Cork Institution which caters for overnight stays family members of patients in long term care in local hospitals. Keep up the good work Emma. Another important piece of good news comes with the announcement of 4 million Euro for Dredging Works in Dingle Harbour to commence over the next few months. When completed the Harbour should be accessible for bigger fishing boats and larger visiting passenger and commercial vessels and safer for all harbour users. This creates greater possibilities for developing our fishing industry alongside more marine related tourism business all of which is welcome news indeed for the West Kerry economy. More good news on the G.A.A. front as over the past month no fewer than 7 members of the Dingle Club have featured in the Kerry Senior Football team between the victorious McGrath Cup games and the first two rounds of the National League. Lets hope all these young athletes will stay injury free and feature in the county jersey throughout 2017 and beyond. Their dedication to training and the skills of the game will hopefully inspire all our young players to success also. Storm Festival. A varied programme with events throughout the Peninsula was well supported but my highlight was the Sunday Morning Session in Dingle Oceanworld. Here Ice and Marathon Swimmer Nuala Moore gave a fascinating hour long lecture to a dumbfounded audience relating to some of her personal and swimming adventures in different corners of the globe. A session which will have to be repeated for all who have not yet heard Nualas story and Mara Beo is just the perfect venue for such an occasion too. Scéal docreidthe agus ana suimiúil comh maith. Comhgáirdeas Nuala.

Céad Míle Fáilte to all those visiting the Peninsula this weekend for the Dingle Walking Festival which features 3 days of varying walks catering for experienced and casual walkers. Registration and full details are at the usual base in Dannos Strand Street and the full programme is elsewhere in this edition. The Festival has grown from strength to strength and offers local and visitors alike an opportunity to experience the magnificant terrain which is on our doorsteps and is a great social and healthy activity also. So get the proper outdoor gear on and see you in Dannos over the weekend or else on the side of a mountain somewhere in the locality!!!. Céad Míle Fáilte also to all who are visiting for the Annual Comortas Peile Páidí Ó Sé to be followed by Scoil Ceol An Earraigh the following week. Bain Taithneamh as an deireadh seachtaine, an caid, an ceoil agus an craic!!!. Help Needed. The Business Chamber will be holding a General Meeting within the next few weeks to seek the views of the public on pressing issues relating to the development of our town. It is hoped to get more people involved in working groups or sub committees to share the workload which has fallen on a few over the past few years. Other successful towns around the country have far more representation and participation from a broad range of people which leads to better ideas and solutions to local issues like Parking, Promotions, Festivals and Events, An Plean Teanga, Tidy Towns to name but a few. Full details of time place and venue in our next edition so get your thinking caps on and lets all move forward together. Yes we will listen to every idea and move forward with what is agreed as the best for our town. Bigi Linn.

Scéal Eile Ó Leabharlann An Daingin We’re often asked by library patrons how to locate a book on our shelves. You’ve searched the catalogue, and the book you want is in Dingle, and is checked in. You can always ask a member of staff, of course, but if you want to find it yourself, here’s how to get   the book you’re looking for among the 20,000 others: The catalogue will list a call number (also known as a class mark or shelf number) beside the location. This is the number printed on the side of the book. This number will tell you exactly where to find the book.

Castlegregory LGFA Castlegregory LGFA has been successfully chosen to run the G4G Programme in 2017! It is an LGFA National Initiative! This is a great honour for the Club. Who will be involved: Girls between ages 8 and 12 years What is it? 12 week programme incorporating coaching session’s with fun, non-competitive blitzes aimed at increasing participation in ladies Gaelic football.

Fiction In Dingle, our adult fiction is divided into ten different genres, with a different call number for each genre. Crime novels are marked CRI, for example. Books in each category are shelved in alphabetical order according to the surname of the author.

Cost: €8 per player

Crime: (CRI) Detective series, thrillers, crime novels. Classics: (CLA) Books regarded as being exemplary and whose popularity has endured for years. Humour: (HUM) Romance & Relationships: (RR) Books that focus mainly on romance, love, and relationships. Contemporary: (CON) ‘Literary’ novels, prize winners and modern novels that don’t easily fit into the other categories. World Literature: (WL) English translations of books from around the world. Historical: (HIS) Short Stories (SS) Fantasy & Science Fiction. (FSF) Action & Adventure. (AA)

Provincial Blitz Day: 17th June, 2017

A lot of the classifications are subjective and may seem arbitrary. Where are the Icelandic crime novels shelved? Crime or World literature? What about 19th century love stories? Historical or Romance & Relationships? Where there is more than one possible category for a book, we have classified it according to which reader we think would most prefer to read it. So, the Iceland crime novels are in the Crime section and the 19th century love stories are with the Historical books. Non Fiction What if you’re looking for a non-fiction book? For non-fiction, we use the Dewey Decimal system. Unlike our fiction classification, there is an exact science to shelving non-fiction. There are ten broad categories, and each of these categories is broken down into smaller and smaller sub-categories. 000-099 General Knowledge 100-199 Psychology and Feelings 200-299 Religion 300-399 Social Sciences and Folklore 400-499 Languages 500-599 Maths and Science 600-699 Medicine and Technology 700-799 Arts and Recreation 800-899 Literature 900-999 Geography and History Every call mark begins with three numbers and followed by a series of letters or numbers. The first three are a whole number; the second series are treated as decimal places. For example: 823, 823.011, 823.1, 823.11. is the correct order for these four items. You’ll see repetition across the categories. 491.62 is the call number for the Irish language. 891.62 is the call number for Irish language literature. Some of the more common call numbers are 641.5 for cookery and baking, 796 for sports, 914-919 for travel, and 941.96 for local history. Dingle Library is open Mon –Sat 10.00 am to 5.00pm and until 8.00pm on Thursday evenings. Ná déan dearúd. Lig do scíth le Leabharlann Chiarraí. 066-9151499 | dingle@kerrylibrary.ie 30 West Kerry Live

Start Date for the G4G Programme: Week beginning 27th March, 2017 – your club can choose to start on any day this week Date to submit T-shirt sizes to Provincial DO: 4th April, 2017 Please contact your club if you want to participate.

Breandán Mac Gearailt Ceist a chuala ag fear an lá cheanna, ná cá bhfuil na himreoirí liathróíd láimhe imithe! Bhí cail nách beag ar an Athair Jones nuair a bhí sé sa cheantar fear a ghnóthaigh Craobhacha Domhain. Ach a rabhas ag dul ar scoil bhíodh buachaillí ag imirt ar gach binn a fhéadfadh siad. Bhí ard imreoirí liathróid láimhe againn, Mícheál ‘Toose’ mac Gearailt an duine ab fhearr acu. Ach le blianta beaga bhí cailiní óga agus buachaillí óga on gceantar ag buachaint cluichí go minic. Bhíti ag imirt i bpiniúr Fhinn Trá agus i bpinúir liathróid láimhe Lios Póil agus An Chlocháin. Nách bhfuil sé ina am an chluiiche taithneamhach seo bheith in ard a réime arís. Ach níl na cailíní seo againne chun deiridh leis. Cupla bliain shoin rug Mairéad Ni Chíobháin ó Mhám na Gaoithe agus Orla ní Dhubhaigh ó Cheann Trá craobh liathróid Lámhe fé 12bl. Chiarraí. Bhuadar ar Phort Láirge agus ar Chorcaigh. Chomh maith dhein Muircheartaigh óga Ard na Caithne gaiscí sna comórtaisí liatróid láimhe. An bhfuil aiséirí ndán don sport taithneamach seo.? Déarfainn é. CLG Chuir Joe Brolly pionna in Uachtarán Chumann Lúith Chleas Gael la déanaí. Cad a bhí á phriochadh? D’reir ó Fearáil Uachtarán CLG go dtiocfadh an lá go mbeadh athrú ar bhrat na hÉireann ag CLG agus go mbeadh deireadh le Amhrán na bhFiann. A Leithéid! An é gur tháinigh an tUachtarán amach ar dtaobh mí-cheart don leabhaidh, nó an tromluí a bhuail é? Nách bhfuil Brat na hÉireann glas don nGael, bán don tSíochain agus an buí dos na hOráisatigh. Bhí uachtarán eile againn a bhí ag caitheamh thareis fés na ‘British Isles?’ Dála ana scéil is na ‘British Isles’, an gnáthaí a bhíonn againn ó lucht tuartha na haimsire an BBC agus Sky. An bhfuil aon duine againn a chuirfeadh comhairle ortha, nó an í an chluas bhodhar atá againn ró-fhada. Caid Buadh ar Chiarraí an lá deireannach. Nách bhfuil sé ina am againn stad don mhéiseáil. Sin cluiche a bhí buaite ach a scaoileadar uatha. Tá an tSraith Chomórtas tábhachtach do aon chontae agus an é, go bhfuilimíd ag méiseáil le imreoirí, isteach agus amach. Léirigh Tír Eoghain nách bhfuil aon eagla ortha roimis Bhleá Cliath. Bheadh an chluiche buaite acu dar leo, murach cúpla cic saor a ceileadh ortha. Aontaím leo. Ní fuair Ciarraí aon pheataíocht ach oiread! Sa chluiche idir Port Láirge agus Cíll Chainnigh mheasfá uaireanta, go gcaithfeadh imreoir buille chamán a tharrach ar imreoir ón bhfreasúra le poc saor a fhá il. Ar an dtaobh eile don scéal mheasas ná raibh sé taobhach le aon cheann dos na fóirne. Is leanúnachas a bhí uaidh, ní raibh uaidh a bheith ag lot an chluiche le pocanna saora. Is mó duine a aontódh leis an dtuairim sin. Ag teacht ar ais go dtí Uachtarán CLG agus a ndúirt sé, ba cheart dó míniú a thabhairt do Ghaelaibh nó an ceart bata agus bóthar a thabhairt don sort sin tuairimíochta. Ceilt Cearta. Tá ceisteanna eile nách mór a chur, conas nách bhfuil Údarás Daonlaitheach Gaeltachta againn mar a bhí? Dúradh an uair dheireannach ná raibh airgead acu do thoghachán rud a bhí bréagach mar go bhféadfaí Toghachán Bhord an Údaráis a bheith lá togcháin eile, mar a bhí cheanna. Sin feall mór amháin. Ansan ta clár ‘Leader’ bainte don nGaeltacht agus iad sáite isteach le ceanntair Béarla. Agus déarfaidh an Rialtas leat go bhfuil siad dáiríre fé leas na Gaeilge agus na Gaeltachta. Tá na hathais seo againn agus iarrtha ar phobail sa Ghaeltacht ‘Plean Gaeilge’ a bheachtú ! San am cheanna tá sé ráite liom nách bhfuil Gaolainn ag Gárdaí áirithe sa Ghaeltacht. Béarla á chur siar ar dhaoine fiú is gur í an Ghaolainn an chéad theanga oifigúil. Le déanaí dúradh nár ghá do Leabharlanaithe, Gaeilge a bheith acu. In ár gcás-ne tá leabharlanaí don scoth againn. Tá stop curtha leis an airgead a tugtaí do bhóithre beaga áise, deontas tithíochta, deontas na Gaeilge do scolairí a bheadh líofa sa teanga. Níl an t-airgead a cuirtear ar fáil dos na Coláistí Gaeilge ag meadú mar atá an costas maireachtála. An é go bhfuil dian chodladh orainn nó an bhfuil misneach caillte ag an muintir seo againne. Má tá aon t-sásamh ar fáil caithfear clipí agus pionnaí a chur amach le chearta ár bpobail a réiteacht. Dar fia, gur cuma leis na húdaráis seo fúinn. Bheadh sé chomh maith againn litir a sheoladh dtí Trump.

Tá daoine óga againn agus iad sár oilte eolach agus déarfainn gur fútha san atá dul i mbun feachtaisí síochánta le casadh a chur ar ár mí-ánna. chomh maith acu ceisteanna a chur ar TD éigin agus a fáil amach cathain a bheidh an tseirbhís ar fáil. Teilifís. Tá daoine ar an mBuailtín agus sa chomharsanach nách bhfuil glacadóireacht ‘Saorview’ ar fáil acu. Cuiríg úr mhúínín i gceist Dála agus beidh freagra pras agaibh. Ceisteanna 1. Críochnaigh, Teaspach le dúchas.....? 2. Cad air a bhíonn an Rath? 3. Cad nách féidir glór a bhaint as? 4. Cad a bhíonn ag an té go mbíonn airgead aige? 5. Cad a bhuann ar an gcinniúint? 6.

The Long Term Effects Of Poor Posture Kyphosis is curvature of the spine that causes the top of the back to appear more rounded than normal. Everyone has some degree of curvature in their spine. However, a curve of more than 45 degrees is considered excessive. Poor posture (postural kyphosis) can be caused by slouching, carrying heavy bags, reading in bed, hours of forward head posture at a computor, hours playing xbox etc.. Over time, stretching of the supporting muscles and ligaments of the spine may lead to an increase in spinal curvature. Postural kyphosis mainly occurs in the thoracic region(upper spine). It is often accompanied by “hyperlordosis” of the lumbar (lower) spine. The lumbar spine has a natural “lordosis” ie. a backward “C”-shape. Hyperlordosis means the lumbar spine compensates for the excessive thoracic kyphosis with an excessive C-shaped lordosis. Sometimes kyphosis causes no symptoms other than the back appearing abnormally curved or hunched. However it may cause: •

back pain and stiffness

tenderness of the spine

tiredness

difficulty breathing

These issues usually become more likely as somebody with this condition(kyphosis) ages. Postural neck pain The most common condition that contributes to neck pain is forward head and shoulder posture. Forward head posture is when the neck juts forward placing the head in front

of the shoulders. This head position leads to several problems: The forward pull from the weight of the head puts undue stress on the vertebrae of the lower neck, contributing to degenerative disc disease and other degenerative neck problems. Similarly, this posture causes the muscles of the upper back to be continually overworked counterbalancing the pull of gravity from the forward head position. Forward shoulder posture can also lead to impingement of the supraspinatus muscle causing shoulder pain/injury. The more time spent with a forward head posture, the more likely it is that one will develop neck and shoulder problems.

disease, cervical osteoarthritis, cervical herniated disc .

The part of the neck that is particularly vulnerable to forward head posture is the lower part of the neck (C5 and C6 ), just above the shoulders. These cervical vertebrae may slide or shear slightly forward relative to one another as a result of the persistent pull of gravity from a forward head posture. This can sometimes be seen as a little step in these vertebrae at this area. Prolonged shearing of the vertebrae from forward head posture eventually irritates the small facet joints in the neck as well as the ligaments and soft tissues. This irritation can result in neck pain that radiates down to the shoulder blades and upper back, due to the following conditions:

•Pectoralis minor muscles (a pair of thin triangular muscles at the upper part of the chest)

• Trigger points in the muscles, which are points of exquisite tenderness that are painful to touch, along with limited range of motion •Disc degeneration problems, which may potentially lead to cervical degenerative disc

Thoracic Kyphosis

Forward Head

Good Posture

• Neuropraxia ; Nerve pain due to nerve compression by tight muscles of the neck, locked cervical/thoracic facet joints, and/or compression of nerves due to discogenic disorders. Muscular neck pain can be caused by the following neck/ shoulder muscles becoming tight due to being overworked: •Scalene muscles (three pairs of muscles that help rotate the neck) •Suboccipital muscles (four pairs of muscles used to rotate the head)

• Subscapularis muscles (a pair of large triangular muscles that attach from behind your scapulae up to the shoulders ) • Levator scapulae muscles (a pair of muscles located at the back and side of the neck). • Trapezius Eddie O’ Grady Bsc.

It is a disgrace and everyone needs to pay attention and if by chance you are reading this and are a dumper then shame on you.

the peninsula to celebrate the Annual Storm Festival. Mary Fitzgerald stories about going out with the Biddy and the biddy ball intermingled with Paud Herlihys reminiscence of storms which blew hay sheds down to the strand in 1936 engaged a captive audience all very interested in local social history. The 1936/38 National Schools folklore essays from Camp School were a wonderful source of information. There was even a story about a drought in 1921 when it didn’t rain from April to July and then the rain came in torrents in August causing terrible havoc for the farmers. Ref - The Schools Collection - www.duchas. ie. Thank you to John and Susan Fitzpatrick for giving the St.Brigids Cross Workshop and to Mary and Paud whose crystal clear recall of times goneby was wonderful and fascinating to hear. Dingle Peninsula Tourism reported a very successful festival all over the peninsula, Treasure Hunts, Concerts and lots more, all went great. A really good start to a vibrant 2017 tourist season, we hope !

Storm Tales Tales of bad storms in Camp and a lesson on how to make a St. Brigid’s Cross on Sunday at the Junction Bar was all part of an exciting programme of events around

Students from Meán Scoil nua an Leith-Triúigh, Castlegregory recently raised a whopping €3,700 for Cancer Research by participating in the Shave or Dye event (€2,200 to Irish Cancer Society and €1,500 to Kerry Hospice). Many students and teachers, including Principal Aodán MacGearailt, dyed or shaved their hair for this most important cause last December. Some female students also cut their beautiful long hair for the Princess Trust. The Princess Trust takes donations of hair which will be made into hairpieces for children suffering hair loss through serious illness. The students who participated and their teacher Miss Sally Ann Leahy cut 7" off their hair. This was then sent to London where it will be made into wigs for children. This event means so much to little kids who become self conscious about their hair loss, one less thing to worry about while battling serious illness. Miss Leahy who organised both events stated that the students of Meán Scoil can be very proud of their achievements. She also wanted to acknowledge the generosity of the school community and the community from Brandon to Camp in West Kerry and its surrounds.

Solar Systems Tom Kennedy Solar..panels or tubes, what's the difference? Well they both provide hot water when heated by the sun’s energy, thus saving you energy, be it oil, gas or electricity. A solar system will save up to 70% of your annual hot water bill. When it comes to tubes versus panels, the tubes are marginally more efficient than panels, but realistically the difference is small, especially when we have had such a great spell of sunshine. There is another "solar system" known in the trade as "Thermodynamic" this is a solar panel that works in the dark. Yes with no sunshine, you ask how! Well the answer is simple really, it's not a solar panel it's a heat pump. The way it works is a panel is fitted to your roof which is connected to a unit and cylinder in your hot press. This is a compressor similar to what's found in a fridge, this unit pumps a refrigerant gas into the panel where it heats due to the fact that the gas has a very low boiling point of about -25 Celsius so this hot gas comes back into the unit, where the gas is compressed to make it hotter, the heat is then transferred to create heat. However, this unit is dependant on electricity to operate so while saving money on heating hot water it does so at a cost. Take for example a typical family home with 3 to 5 occupants, costs on average about €1,500 to €2,000 per year to heat, of which about a 1/4 to 1/3 of this is hot water, so a typical hot water bill for a family of 5 is somewhere in the region of €450 to €650 a year.

Rosarie O Donnell (Kerry Hospice), Ciarán Dowd (student who raised over €800), Micheal A solar system for a family of 5 can cost anything from €4,000 to O Cinnéide (from Irish Cancer Society), Aodán MacGearailt (principal), Ruth Wallace(Kerry €5,500 supplied and fitted, giving them a yearly saving of approx €350 to €500 and when you take into account the rising cost of enHospice), Sheila O’Connor(Kerry Hospice) and Sallyann Leahy (Teacher). ergy, a system can pay for itself in 5 to 10 years. 36 West Kerry Live

Cromane 0-11, Keel 2-9 Cromane and Keel warmed up a bitterly cold afternoon in Cromane on Sunday with a lively game of football. Both sides lined out with what would be called ‘usual starters’ but the football was sharp and a credit to both trainers: Cromane’s Gavin O’Connor (marshalling the sideline in his first game in charge) and Keel’s Clive O’Callaghan. Cromane dominated the opening half with Liam Walsh and Finbar Casey doing well at midfield. After 20 minutes the home side led by 0-6 to 0-1. Cromane’s scores came from a combination of efforts from Paul Patrick O’Sullivan, Liam Walsh, and Mikey Houlihan with a sole free from Garry Sayers being Keel’s only response. Keel improved just before half-time with Luke Flynn , Garry Sayers, and Martin Burke coming more into the game. However, they had a lobbed goal from Terry O’Sullivan to thank for having them within two at the break, 0-7 to 1-2. The home side continued to battle against a strong breeze in the second half with points from Paul Patrick O’Sullivan and Micheál Shaughnessy. The course of the game changed with Keel’s Martin Burke bursting through the centre to goal midway through the half. This, ultimately, gave Keel the added energy to finish the game out. Further points from Garry Sayers and Terry O’Sullivan paved the way for an opening round win on a score of 2-9 to 0-11. Cromane, of course, will be disappointed with the loss but can be pleased with the display. The game marked the senior competitive debuts of Liam Casey, Shane Ahern, Patrick Moroney, Jason Clifford, and a welcome return for Ian Costello, who was superb at wing-back. Cromane: Paudie McCarthy; Danny O’Connor, Eoghan Walsh, Liam Casey; Liam Teahan, Brendan Foley, Ian Costello; Finbar Casey, Liam Walsh (0-2); Shane Ahern, Paul Patrick O’Sullivan (0-6, 0-4 frees), Micheál Shaughnessy (0-2); Cian O’Keeffe, Mikey Houlihan (0-1), Sean Teahan. Substitutes: Patrick Moroney and Jason Clifford. Referee: Mike Hickey (Milltown/Castlemaine) Medal Presentation: The Cromane players, who were members of the Glenbeigh/Glencar/Cromane under-14 and under-16 teams that won their respective Mid Kerry ‘B’ championships in 2016, received their medals at Glenbeigh GAA Hall on Sunday. Under-14 recipients: Josh Key, Eanna Healy, Kieran O’Sullivan, Kaiya O’Flaherty, Zein O’Flaherty, Darragh McKeefry, Tadhg O’Shea, Jason O’Sullivan, and Liam Joy.

Behaviour

Dingle’s Global Rhythm Festival has moved to Bank Holiday Weekend 2 – 5 June 2017. It’s not Fake News!!!! It isn’t an Alternative Fact!!!! Not a Clerical Error!!!! This year CCD6 will help you get your summer off to the best possible start with a bank holiday weekend crammed with the finest music, rhythm and dance from Kerry and around the world. We’re putting the finishing touches to the programme as this magazine goes to press but the line-up for this year will include the usual eclectic mix of workshops, from djembé to bodhrán, African dance, masterclasses, pulsating percussion performances and groove-filled gigs under the canopy at An Conair Bar – Sure where would you get it? Maracatu Ilu Brilliante, (full on, hypnotic beats originating from northeastern Brazil) DJ. Ben Ó Faoláin, (casadh ceirníní cheoil na Cruinne, den chéad scoth) Splanc: The Dingle Carnival Band (the finest carnival band in Kerry!) Samba de Mesa, (the sounds of Pagode, a chilled out, lyrical samba groove.) And much much MUCH more. Watch this space for further news cuislecd2@gmail.com (Please note; the festival programme may be subject to alteration.)
