They are the words of Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Richard Bruton. The Minister was speaking at an announcement in Darndale that €3 million in funding will be provided to the Anti-Dumping Initiative programme to support communities around the country to tackle illegal dumping.Minister Bruton said: “We can only stamp it (illegal dumping) out if we work together. “This money will step up the chances of catching the offenders and will provide help to those who want to do the right thing. “Innovation, surveillance using drones, special collections for awkward items like mattresses, spreading awareness among young people and recognising the work of volunteers can all play a role.” continued on page 2ARCHIVES PAGE 43NEWS PAGE 6Headstones Inscriptions Renovations Cleaning Grave accessoriesWE’RE NOT A BANK.No.Unit 2, Eklad Park, Malahide Road, Ind Estate, Coolock, Dublin 17 www.robinsonstone.ieCOME VISIT OURSHOWROOM TODAY2NORTHSIDE PEOPLE EAST 10.04.19Scourge of illegal dumping to be tackled with new funding NEW NAME, NEW IDEAScontinued from P1 targeting blackspots. “Since 2017, the AntiDumping Initiative (ADI) Minister Bruton said programme has removed there are plans to put some 5,000 tonnes of a special emphasis onillegal waste from some of the country’s most notorious fly tipping blackspots,” he said. “In the vast majority ofJEFFJOHNSTON Iarrthóir Toghcáin Áitiúil - Barda Chluain Tarbh Local Election Candidate - Clontarf Ward 086 835 4008j.johnstonFG@gmail.com@jeff johnston JeffJohnstonFGWorking for you in Clontarf with Cllr Naoise Ó MuíríMinister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment, Richard Bruton, with Madeleine Ebbs, Dublin City Council, at the funding announcement in Darndale.Slim 4 Life FOR MEN & WOMEN 100% Irish Owned Company Thank you for choosing Irish.

Ms Ebbs welcomed the announcement and said it will go a long way towards tackling the scourge of illegal dumping. “This is a very serious issue that is affecting many areas all over the country and any initiatives that help to curb this problem are to be welcomed,” she said. Local councillor Larry O’Toole (SF) said: “While I welcome Minister Bruton’s initiative, I hope that it is not just spin.“We need a serious all encompassing response to the problem of illegal dumping. Dublin City Council, gardai, the local community and the minister’s own department have a role to play”. Cllr O’Toole added: “I would like to invite the minister to meet with local representatives and community members to further discuss possible solutions to this very serious issue.” Funding to the AntiDumping Initiative programme is increasing to €3 million this year, a 50 percent increase on last year. This is in addition to the €7.4 million annual enforcement grant, which supports the recruitment and retention of 150 local authority waste enforcement personnel across the country.FOR FEATURES Contact our sales team today on01 8621611 or Email:sales@dublinpeople.com“Strong Voice Sensible Politics”Host an international student with EF!

Eason Spelling Bee is the very definition of fun for school kids, encouraging them to read more, expand their vocabulary and fall in love with literacy.Brendan Corbett, Group Head of Marketing at Eason, said: “We’re now in the ninth year of the Eason Spelling Bee and we’re incredibly proud to see it going from strength to strength annually. “Each year, the children involved continue to impress us with their level of spelling skill and it’s wonderful to see schools across the country continuing to support this competition.” Along with the prestigious title of Eason Spelling Bee 2019 Champion, the winning speller in the national competition will also take home a collection of books for their school library worth €7,500 as well as a personal collection of books worth €500.

This is why we are calling for a ‘spectrum of housing’ that not only takes into consideration the needs of older people from a health, community and social inclusion perspective, but also shows an awareness of the need for differentprice points. ALONE values the importance of community-based supports to be in place on the ground to enable the older person to overcome challenges, as well as being able to access the benefits and resources that will enable them to remain living at home. ALONE estimates that, at any one time, 20 percent of older people require some level of support intervention. Now is the time to begin the process of building communities for people to live in throughout their life-cycle and to support older people to age in place, preparing for the demographic change and addressing gaps in housing options.There needs to be choice in housing for older people. PHOTO: BIGSTOCK We believe that further planning needs to take place to ensure that this housing is located in areas of high demand, close to people’s current homes. This will ensure that people are not displaced from their communities and forced to move away from their families and social networks. National planning policy should make sites available for local authorities and Approved Housing Bodies to provide more social housing with supports for older people, and for private developers to provide affordable housing. Thisneeds to become an integral part of creating age-friendly communities. The cost of building smaller homes for older people is estimated between €10,000 and €20,000 cheaper than building three and four-bed family homes. This will also reduce the incidence of older people having to remain in acute hospital settings due to lack of housing options available or long delays in housing adaptations, and will reduce the numbers of older people moving to costly nursing home provision due to lack of alternative supports.20% OFFTriple Glazingcopy from ad id 21602for April Change grey background on logo OnlyWINDOWS & DOORSto white & move up huge sale section to showHighest off pic belowQuality itWindows & DoorsPhone: 01 8970777 • Mobile: 086 8970777 • www.dbestwindows.ie (LANDLINE MAY HAVE INTERUPTIONS DUE TO REFURBISHMENT)15YR GUARANTEE ON OUR ELITE 1,000 RANGE • HOME IMPROVEMENT GRANTSIt is estimated that the cost to the ‘Fair Deal’ scheme will increase by an additional €729m annually by 2031 as a result of demographic changes.

The mural, which was created by local students from Manor House School in conjunction with Iarnród Éireann, was unveiled at Kilbarrack DART Station. Kilbarrack native and Manor House pupil, Aoife Bullock, devised the idea to help brighten up the station and spread the message of positive mental health, which is also central to Iarnród Éireann’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) strategy. This is not the first mural to be placed at the station, which has a tradition of artwork being created by local groups and people. Speaking at the unveiling, Aoife said: “As students we wanted to spread a message that it is ok not to feel ok andthat we should not be afraid to talk about our mental health. “We wanted to play an active role in our community and to make a difference.” The mural contains positive messages and also the Samaritans’ contact number. Iarnród Éíreann’s corporate social responsibility strategy focuses heavily on mental health causes. The company is the chief sponsor of the Cycle Against Suicide, is a distribution partner for Green Ribbon in the month of May and also works closely with the Samaritans. It is planned that more murals will be put in the station in the future by Iarnród Éireann in conjunction with local community partners. Kilbarrack Station Manager John Donegan said: “The murals we have here have always helped brighten up the station and we are delighted to see another addition, particularlyPictured at the unveiling of the new mural at Kilbarrack Train Station were Aoife Bullock, Kilbarrack Station Manager John Donegan, Mya O’Hara, teacher Warren Montgomery and Jennifer Boland.

Mr Reid said a lot has been achieved over the last five years.   "I was delighted when I came in 2014 to find a body of councillors who were committed to the council’s vision of making Fingal the place of choice in Ireland to live, work, visit and do business," he said. "Over the past five years there wasalways a willingness to find t
