Previous studies have been undertaken to determine how best to advance this primary route on the Cycle Network Plan for the Greater Dublin Area. In 2017, Dublin City Council and the NTA agreed that a review of all options previously considered, as well as any new options that hadn’t been identified to date, should be undertaken. Anne Graham, chief executive officer of the National Transport Authority, said: “This plan means there will be safer cycling facilities and an improved environment for pedestrians along the Liffey and we believe that this will encourage more people to cycle and walk as part of their daily commute. “This is good news for commuters, but it’s also good news when it comes to reducing our carbon emissions.” The Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross, described the Liffey Cycle Route as a potentially transformative project for everyone who lives in, works in or visits Dublin. “It will provide a safe and segregated cycle track right through the heart of our capital city,”HOST FAMILIES WANTED!An artist’s impression of the new cycle lane and pedestrian boardwalk on Aston Quay. Minister Ross stated. “I look forward to hearing people’s views during the planned public consultation and hope this long-awaited project can now move forward. “I’m delighted to be able to increase the level of investment we’re putting into developing better cycling infrastructure across the country.” He added: “Funding under our two main programmes has increased by around 30 percent this year,while there’s also more money being made available under our Greenways Strategy and through separate Project Ireland 2040 funds related to urban and rural regeneration and development.” Labour local election candidate for Dublin's North Inner City and party spokesperson on Regeneration, Joe Costello, welcomed the long-awaited decision on the Liffey Cycle Route. “It will be wonderful toHost an international student with EF!

"It is, however, a shame that it has taken so long; that the City Council’s Transportation Department refused to engage with the local community; and that the cycleway will now cost over €20 million. "The NTA had pulled the plug nearly two years ago after Dublin City Council had spent five years planning, coming up with eight unworkable options [at a cost of ] €360,000.” Mr Costello added: "One of the madcap ideas was a route option that would divert buses through an apartment block that had planning permission from Dublin City Council and which was already under construction. Another proposal was to redirect all traffic coming into town along the North Quays up Blackhall Place, into the already congested residential streets of Stoneybatter and Smithfield and after an extra journey of one and a half kilometres to bring the traffic back down to the North Quays at Church Street. "After the five-year debacle, let us hope thatthere is money available to build the proposed Liffey Cycleway and that the citizens of Dublin will at last have a segregated cycleway which will take them safely across the city, from the Phoenix Park to the Irish Sea." The Green Party also welcomed the publication of the preferred cycle route along the Liffey quays. The party’s MEP candidate for Dublin, Cllr Ciarán Cuffe, who is chair of the council’s Transportation Strategic Policy Committee, said: "I'm delighted that we now have a new plan for the Liffey Cycle Route linking the Phoenix Park and Dublin Bay. The scheme isn't perfect, and has had to make compromises, but I'm hoping that this latest plan prepared by the National Transport Authority's consultants will get the green light from the Transportation Committee so that we can move towards construction. "People are crying out for segregated bike lanes that will make it safer for cyclists, young and old, to travel safely along the Liffey quays. Let's hope we can now move these plans forward to construction."3NORTHSIDE PEOPLE WEST 10.04.19Local students Tidy Towns launch help promote reading initiative IT’S that time of the year again! Entries are now being welcomed from local groups for the 2019 SuperValu TidyTowns competition. The closing date for receipt of entries is May 17. Entry forms can be obtained from the Department ofSTUDENTS at a north inner city school recently took part in the launch of a campaign that aims to promote reading for pleasure. Ireland’s fourth National Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) Challenge will take place this week at on Friday, April 12, at 12 noon. The simple but very effective idea is to promote the importance of literacy and reading for pleasure by having as many people as possible read at the same time on the same day. Work will be put down, computer screens will be turned off, school-texts put away and everyone will be encouraged to pick up a book, magazine, newspaper, e-book or audio book and to read quietly, or indeed be read to, for 20 minutes. The 2019 National DEAR Challenge launch was hosted by the City of Dublin ETB and the CDETB Curriculum Development Unit in the JCSP School Library in Larkin Community College. Speaking at the launch, National DEAR Challenge founder, Kathleen Moran, spoke about the imporance of reading. “The main focus of DEAR is to draw attention to the importance of reading for pleasure,” said Ms Moran. “Reading is one of the greatest gifts that can be given to children andRural and Community Development, Michael Ring, said: “The dedication and commitment shown by generations of volunteers and community groups throughout the TidyTowns competition’s 60 year history is extraordinary.”Cllr Áine Clancy Firmly committed to the people and area of Cabra / Glasnevin The Cabra/Glasnevin electoral area includes Navan Road, Phibsborough, Drumcondra, Cabra and GlasnevinContact Áine Your Local Councillor Áine.clancy@dublincity.ie For appointments please Tel: 087 763 5406 www.aineclancy.com Larkin Community College students Ruslan Kalachov and Anamaria Nita pictured at the launch of the campaign. PHOTO: TOMMY CLANCY young people. If reading is to become a lifelong habit, then young people must see themselves as participants in a community that views reading as a significant and enjoyable activity. “It’s so important to see the world from another person’s point of view… to hear other people’s stories; that’s how we learn to respect and care for other people.” Also speaking at the launch via video-link, award winning author, poet, Laureate na nÓg and 2019 National DEAR Challenge Ambassador, Sarah Crossan, said: “Reading is not about something that you have to do, it’s about doing it for pleasure and it’s about entertainmentin the same way that all other arts are. “On April 12, together with the whole country, we’ll all be reading at the same time, and how wonderful will that be, what a beautiful thing. I think you’re going to enjoy it.” The challenge is supported by a range of organisations, including the JCSP Library Project, City of Dublin ETB, Children’s Books Ireland, LAI Youth Libraries Group, Laureate na nÓg, CDETB Curriculum Development Unit, Poetry Ireland and many more. DEAR is open to all. Schools, colleges, community groups, individuals, families and workplaces can registerto participate at www. jcsp.ie where you will also find information, ideas and inspiration.

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.It 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 pressure on the private rented sector and HAP Scheme will also reduce. We believe that the delivery of these ambitious targets will depend on an innovative and collaborative approach between all stakeholders, including the Department of Housing Planning and Local Government, Department of Health, local authorities, the HSE and the Approved Housing Body sector.Get more from your smartphone.Join one of our free 3Assist events on the second Tuesday of every month to get up to speed with your smartphone.

Dublin Circuit Criminal Court heard last week that father-of-five Miguel Pintos (38) came off the bike and impacted with another woman, which fractured her ankle. Pintos, of Coultry Way, Ballymun, pleaded guilty to endangerment at Shangan Road, Ballymun, on May 6, 2018. He has 30 previous convictions, including minor road traffic matters, drug offences and one possession of explosives.Garda Gerard Mullarkey told Garret Baker BL, prosecuting, that the two women had been walking along the road after having dinner together when Pintos lost control of the motorbike. The woman who suffered the more serious injury later told gardaí that she didn't remember much about the incident or feeling pain at the scene. She recalled a member of the public speaking to her and trying to keep her awake. Gda Mullarkey told Mr Baker that this woman received 20 stitches to her head and though she has begun to improve ph
