MEDIEVAL FESTIVAL WORTH Euro480,000 TO TOWN, SAYS SURVEY

by Christy Parker Those who attended Youghal’s second annual Walled Town Day (commonly called ’Medieval Day’) at the College Gardens last August 24th may recall a reasonably entertaining afternoon. The rain just about abstained and there were sufficient attractions and stalls to deliver an enjoyable, if not exhilarating, experience. That’s just a personal opinion, mind. An official, statistical view comes from a study conducted by con- sultants KPMG. Verily, it doth bringeth good tidings to yon Heritage Council, Youghal Town Council, tourism sectors and the merchant community. KPMG’s two researchers sought to quantify the event’s economic impact on the locality and its success in promoting heritage and tourism. They proffered the two-pronged approach of surveying accommodation providers (posted questionnaires) and the general public (personal interviews on the day). However the results from the accommodation providers were dismissed "as the small num- ber of respondents made the data unsafe and unpredictable." The consultants identified four different economic impacts: i) accommodation expenditure on the day; ii) accommodation expenditure on other days but related to the festival; iii) non- accommodation expenditure on the day; iv) non-accommodation expenditure not on the day but related to the festival They subsequently decided, however strangely, that respondents in the non-accommodation expenditure brackets (ii and iv), espe- cially locals, were "significantly underestimating" their spending. So they opted for a "more appropriate estimation," as determined by "a scientific study conducted by Failte Ireland in 2005 and indexed for 2006 (4%) and 2007 (4.9%). Personnel operating number counters at the entrances clicked an attendance of 5,417. Families with children and couples over 50 with an interest in heritage, predominated. The researchers interviewed 80 respondents who, taking group- ings into account, represented a total of 134 persons (3.6% of attendance). The sample was 44% male and 56% female of which 83% were over 35 years. About 87% were from the Ireland and 10% from Britain. 87% cited the ’Medieval Day’ as "an important influence on their decision to visit the area," a response that reflects considerable importance to running a festival. The survey showed 23% required accommodation, the remainder being day-trippers (24%) and locals (53%). Of the 23% requiring accommodation, almost half enjoyed free -family or friends- lodg- ings. Accommodation expenditure on the day:

The survey fund that 34 people paid for accommodation, signify- ing a demand for 975 commercial beds across the total attendance. Taking 24 as an average per bed, the economic value was 23,400. Accommodation expenditure on other nights but related to the festival:

Those visitors that stayed in accommodation for the day stayed, on average, 8.4 days in the region. Estimating that … of this addition- al expenditure can be directly attributed to the festival, the eco- nomic impact was an estimated 43,000 for the remaining 7.4 days. The figures suggest that events like the Medieval Day attract peo- ple to provincial regions for extended stays. Interestingly, nobody surveyed stayed in a local hotel, with 70% of those requiring accommodation staying in rented holiday homes. This suggests a preference for self-catering accommodation, notes the report. Non-accommodation related expenditure on the day:

This amounted to 174,000. Overnighters from overseas spent most ( 51,700) followed by locals ( 48.000), Irish day trippers ( 36,500), Irish overnighters ( 34,000) and overseas day trippers ( 3,500). The benefits to local businesses were deemed to arise through hosting food and craft stalls, from an influx of visitors and the general atmosphere created by the event.

Non-accommodation expenditure not on the day but related to the event:

A of 158,900 was assessed from the expenditure generated both

by Irish residents and overseas visitors residing in the area for an average of 8.4 nights. Again, it represents a … of their total esti- mated expenditure in the region for that period. The proximity of the town centre to the gardens was considered to be enormously important to businesses benefiting from this expenditure. Sum total of 480,000 In summarising KPMG used a 20% money multiplier (to address

what is called the ’second round effect’) to estimate the total ben- efit to the local economy and arrived at 480,000. This represents

a return of 30 times on a net outlay of 16,000, raised through

Heritage Council Grant ( 13,000), Youghal Town Council ( 3,000) and the lease of stalls ( 600). That assessment does not take into account the ’social capital’ of 11,600, that would have been accrued by voluntary workers on a minimum wage of 8.65. Strategic success The event was also deemed successful in the strategic context of promoting conservation and heritage in the heart of the communi-

ty while generating tourism. "This will help to address the high

level of retail vacancy and the lack of adequate visitor facilities," says the report, again noting the proximity of the town centre to the gardens. Involvement of voluntary workers, local organisations and busi- nesses was seen as to encourage the community to "take pride in

their town as a place of high quality living." The potential for year- on-year growth was recognised as was the capacity to "promote the town walls,’ providing further family attractions and creating an "authentic, enriching and memorable" visitor experience. The attendance was considered more impressive given that the day coincided with the Cork-Waterford ** final. Though the pre- vious, children’s entertainment day was effectively washed put, it was noted that the festival is actually a two-day event. This helps identify it as the largest annual Walled Town celebration in the country and it is considered a template for others to follow. Perhaps most significantly, only 3% of those surveyed said they didn’t enjoy themselves. Personally, I thought the puppets were the best part. Especially the first show, with the monster; remind you

of nobody but Cromwell

The scheme is not intended to assist in carrying out routine mainte- nance, alterations or improvements and does not apply to works begun before the commencement of this scheme. The applicant and their architect/contractor must be tax compliant. Applications have a greater chance of success if they are fully and clearly completed. Applications will be assessed on a priority basis. The closing date for receipt of completed application forms is the 27th February 2009.

YOUGHAL TOWN COUNCIL INTRODUCES INNOVATIVE PAINTING SCHEME

Youghal Town Council is pleased to announce the introduction of

an innovative painting scheme for facades of buildings along the

North Main Street of Youghal, as part of the Heritage Regeneration Strategy Project. Owners or tenants along the North Main Street can avail of a 50% grant from Youghal Town Council for the painting of their facades

along the street. (Shop fronts are generally excluded being consid- ered the domain of corporate identity, but exceptions will be con- sidered). A recent pilot of the proposed colour scheme of two properties in

the town has been undertaken, resulting in a noticeable improve-

ment to the aesthetics and appearance of that area of the Main Street. Other properties have also taken the initiative by following the same principles and have achieved the same remarkable

results. Should you wish to take part in this scheme and qualify for this grant; a number of steps need to be undertaken:

o

Make a formal application in writing to the Town Architect, Youghal Town Council, Town Hall, Youghal giving the property address and a contact phone number

o

A meeting with the Town Architect will be arranged to discuss and confirm colours etc.

o

The contractors quote is to be approved by the Town Architect before the commencement of works.

o

On completion of works, the Town Architect needs to be advised so that in inspection can be arranged

o

The contractor is to submit his invoice to the applicant who in turn submits the invoice to the Town Architect for approval and release 50% grant.

Please note that the contract is between the applicant and the paint-

ing contractor.

This initiative by Youghal Town Council is aimed at fully max- imising the potential of the town and to position Youghal as a dis- tinctive, international tourist and commercial destination within its historic core. Youghal Town Council therefore looks forward to working with tenants and owners of Youghal’s North Main Street on this scheme.

NEW MAN AT THE WALTER RALEIGH HOTEL

Michael Davitt is the new General Manager at the Walter Raleigh Hotel. Born and bred in Dublin with his father from Cashel, the Premier County, and mother from Ardfert, the Kingdom, having married a local east cork girl, he has being living in the Rebel coun-

ty for over a decade. Truly, he must be at home now ! With so many county affiliations, between the football, hurling and now rugby, he’s

a frequent visitor to Croke Park.

Michael laughs at the rumour mill, ’I am redecorating the bedrooms at the moment so that when we close, I can take them with me!’. There are various activities planned for the coming year. We’re intro- ducing an 80’s/90’s night in our Black Water Suite the night before our popular and successful Bank Holiday Discos, we’re entertaining the All-Ireland Angling Championship in October and we are partic- ularly busy with weddings over the summer months. Our new bar menu has ’Build your Own Burger’, ’Cut your own steak’ and given that Walter Raleigh introduced the potato to Ireland, a ’Spud’ menu. Given that the Walter is a local Youghal hotel, Michael is delighted

to give their support to CRY, particularly with their ’Strictly Dancing’ events booked every month for this year. Michael would also like to extend the same friendship to alternative community based and sporting groups from and around the town. ’Youghal is under pres- sure at the moment, and it’s only a little to help’. Being very interested in history, Michael wants anybody with a story to tell to call in for a cup of tea so their events can be recorded. There’s a gift voucher for the best photo of the Walter but there must be a local connection to it. Telling Michael that the Walter was first recognised as two hotels in an 1902 Guide to Youghal, there is over

a century of ghosts to uncover !

Michael as an adopted outsider, speaks enthusiastically about the beauty of the region, recounting a list of activities you could enjoy within an hours drive, using Youghal as a base to stay, and not even allowing for a day off. East Cork is West Corks best secret !

Tides Restaurant, Youghal

- the perfect dining out experience

Eating Out Has Never Been More Affordable

Tides dining experience has been relaunched with all-new menus that make eating out in style better value than ever. Exceptional pricing, combined with superb food and quality service, mean straitened times, there is no need to sacrifice the pleasure of dinging enjoyably with friends or family. "We are very much aware that people are considering costs and value for money more than ever before," says David Savage, "and so we have put a lot of thought into introduc- ing exciting new menus, and maintaining our high stan- dards of quality food service, while offering amazing prices to our customers." One example of this is the new bistro bar lunchtime menu which offers main courses for just 8.50 Monday through Saturday. But just because the price is low, that doesn’t mean Tides has sacrificed quality or choice.

that doesn’t mean Tides has sacrificed quality or choice. Far from it: on that lunchtime bar

Far from it: on that lunchtime bar menu you can choose from delights like roast leg of lamb, venison stew, monkfish with tiger prawns, chicken wrapped in bacon and filled with mushroom pate, and more. Wouldn’t that tempt you to leave your office desk or kitchen and head to Tides? There is a full selection on the bar bistro menu in the evenings too, with exceptional value being offered. A new Early Bird Menu is available each evening from 5 p.m. to 7.30 p.m., as well as an extensive a la carte menu. At all times Tides caters for a wide variety of tastes including vegetarian. For that intimate evening out you have to go for the Tides dining room, designed like the inside of a luxury yacht with mahogany beams, ivory-coloured cladding, candlelit tables set with white tablecloths and crystal. You’ll imagine your- self back in the heady days of the Thirties, cruising around the south of France, with superb food reinforcing that won- derful feeling. The full a la carte menu offers temptations like wood pigeon, turbot, scallops, Barbary duck, quail, and ostrich, while a wonderful five-course set dinner here repre- sents amazing value at only 32.50. And of course there is a superb wine list with a large selection of wines and cham- pagnes, blending the best of both old and new worlds. Not

pagnes, blending the best of both old and new worlds. Not surprisingly, Sunday lunch is very

surprisingly, Sunday lunch is very popular at Tides, with customers arriving from far and wide to enjoy both the food and the atmosphere in this wonderful seaside setting. You can enjoy a four course Sunday lunch in the restaurant for only 24.50 or, for lighter appetites, a main course in the bar bistro for just 10.50. Their function room is much in demand for private events, and they will devise menus to suit all tastes and budgets. Indeed, Tides is proving the first choice for intimate, bou- tique-style weddings ( up to about 60 guests) during 2009, with many dates already booked up. A nice touch is the provision of a complimentary wedding car by Tides which will whisk the bride from her home to the ceremony and then bring the happy couple to the venue for the afternoon. It’s nice to know that while there is gloomy talk of recession and belt-tightening, there is still somewhere you can go to enjoy a fine lunch, an intimate dinner, a happy family Sunday, at exceptional value. Tides of Youghal. Discover it for yourself.

FREE SERVICE TO DISPOSE OF UNUSED MEDICINES PROPERLY (DUMP)

A free service to dispose of unused or out of date medicines is now available to the general public. The Dispose of Unused Medicines Properly (DUMP) campaign, which has been organised by the HSE with the community pharmacists in Cork and Kerry and supported by Cork City Council, Cork County Council, Kerry County Council and the Regional Waste Management Office, starts this week (26th January 2009) and will run in participating pharmacies until 8th March 2009. More than 200 pharmacies are participating in the campaign and are actively encour- aging people to return unwanted or out of date medicine to them so that it can be disposed of safely and properly. Medicines can accumulate in the home for a variety of reasons e.g. unfinished courses of antibiotics or a condition/illness that is no longer a problem and subsequently the remain- der of the medication is not used. Also, older people or someone with an ongoing illness can often have large amounts of medicine at home. Whatever the reason, the HSE and the pharmacists would urge household- ers to take this opportunity to dispose of these unwanted medicines (pre- scription or over the counter) safely. Louise Creed, HSE South Community Care Pharmacist explained why people should take this opportunity to safely dispose of unwanted medicines and said, We would strongly urge people to take this opportunity to get rid of out of date or unused medicines. Medication can pose a real hazard in the home, par- ticularly to children or other vulnerable people. Clearing out your medi- cine cabinet is something that should be done on a regular basis. Check all the dates and remove anything that is out of date or no longer required. As well as the hazards posed by overdose, accidental poisoning and dam- age to the environment, medicines can change when out of date and may end up being harmful. Storing large quantities of medication at home can pose a hazard and put people at risk of; Accidental poisonings (particularly in children) Brightly coloured medications or liquids can easily be mistaken for sweets or drinks by children or other vulnerable people. In 2007, the National Poisons Information Centre received a total of 11,011 enquiries, mostly involving pharmaceutical overdoses, with Paracetamol and Ibuprofen being among the most common agents. 4,375 (52.9%) of these enquiries involved children under 10 years (note: it is assumed that all cases involving children under the age of 10 are accidental). Most cases of poisoning occurred in the home or a domestic setting. There are an average of 8 accidental deaths due to medication poisoning each year in Cork and Kerry. Inappropriate sharing of medicines It is important that medicines are taken as directed by the person for whom they were prescribed and only that person. Medication is prescribed to cure illness/infection, however, sharing or not completing courses of medication may cause illness, injury, or even death. Also, when antibiotics are used inappropriately (i.e. not completing the course or sharing with someone), not all bacteria are destroyed and more resistant bacteria survive and multiply. These drug- resistant bacteria then make it harder to prevent and treat infections because fewer antibiotics are effective against them. Overdose suicide attempts Every year more than 1,000 people present to hospital emergency departments in Cork and Kerry due to intentional overdoses of medication (accounting for three-quarters of all parasui- cide/deliberate self harm presentations). While several medications can be taken in the overdose acts, almost half (44%) involved a minor tran- quilliser, 33% involved medicines containing Paracetamol and 25% involved antidepressants/mood stabilizers. In Cork and Kerry each year there are approximately 90 deaths by suicide. On average 14 (16% or one in six) of these are due to an overdose of medication. Damage to the environment Unwanted medicines are often dumped with other household waste, flushed down the toilet or poured down the sink. These methods of dis- posal can seriously harm the environment with products ending up in landfill, permeating the soil and entering our food chain and water supply. David Lane, Drug & Alcohol Services Co-ordinator, HSE South, The pharmacies involved have all embraced the campaign and are actively encouraging people to return unwanted or out of date medicines to them. I cannot emphasise strongly enough how important it is ensure these med- icines are disposed of properly and safely. Please take some time to check out what s in your cabinets and avail of this free service over the coming weeks. Most households will always have a quantity of medicine in their home and it is important that it is stored correctly and out of reach of chil- dren or other vulnerable people. There are a number of steps you can take including: Ask your pharmacist to put your medicines into a child-resist- ant container. Remember these caps are child-resistant not childproof! Keep all medicines, even seemingly harmless medicines, well out of reach and sight of children on a high shelf or in a locked press. Don t for- get that children can climb higher than you think!

ALL IRELAND LEAGUE DIVISION 2 SOUTH,

FROGMORE YOUGHAL, SUNDAY 25TH YOUGHAL V NENAGH

Youghal ladies took to the second pitch as a break from the norm, with weather conditions even ducks would take shelter from. Youghal had strong running lines from the off with Sinead Fitzgerld flying up the wing only to be put in touch by a definite try saving tackle by the Nenagh winger. Deirdre Cronin moments later took advantage of Nenaghs breather and touched down gaining Youghal the lead . The home sides forwards clearly tiring out he larger Nenagh side, unfortunately their superiority couldn t be stamped in the shape of scores. The Youghal ladies conceded a penalty in front of the post and it was a certain 3 pointer to Nenaghs out-half Genevieve Rowland. In almost the exact same position moments later the Youghal girls repeated their mistake luckily this shot was kicked wide. Score at halt time Youghal 5 - Nenagh 3. Coming into the second half with a new lease of life on a new pitch both sides desire was clear with some super tackling by the Youghals for- wards. The interference of mother nature in the form of gigantic hailstones gave both sides a break and team talk but Nenagh ladies came out guns blazing running in three tries almost consecutively. The second half was spent hugely by Youghal defending their line, they just couldn t play the game they d set out to with a backstroke looking more likely then a backs move, with Nenagh proving jubi- lant in the end. Great overall by Una Fitzgerald and Maria Hooley throughout. Another applaud worthy play by the ever confident women of the match Karen O Mahoney whose hard hitting and superb support play gave Youghal the advantage in the first half. Team: T. Browne, K. Faul, M. Hooley (capt), U. Fitzgerald, K. O Mahoney, D. Fitzgerald, O. O Mahoney, C. O Flaherty, T. Jaywardene, C. Griffin, S. Hogan, S. O Shea, D. Cronin, S. Fitzgerald. Subs G.Lynch,L. Barry.

YOUGHAL RACQUETBALL WINTER LEAGUE

Meanwhile in section B, Wayne Fitzgerald leads the table as the only undefeated player and looks on form to take top spot in this section. Once the league games are complete we enter the knockout stages with the top four players from each section competing for the cup and the lower four com- peting for the plate. There are still 18 pool matches to be played and the results are very close in the middle of the tables, Michael Pearce, Shane Hogan and Liam Joyce are tied close in section A and Brendan Mackey, Bill Morris and Ted Kelly tied in section B, we are surely in for some entertaining games.

Sister Francis Xavier Geary, RIP

The death took place on January 19 at the South Infirmary Hospital, Cork, of Sister Francis Geary, late of Gortroe. In her 97th year, Sr Francis Requiem Mass was celebrated in Ardfoyle Convent in Ballintemple with burial in the adjoining Community Cemetery. Her death was deeply regretted by her sis- ter, Sr Dominica OLA, her brothers Jimmy and Willie, nieces, nephews, grandnieces, grandnephews, relatives, friends and the Sisters of Our Lady of Apostles. Before a large attendance at the Requiem Mass, Sister Mary Crowley paid the following moving tribute to a deeply missed and loved Sister:

On behalf of the OLA Sisters (Sisters of Our Lady of Apostles), I want to welcome each one of you, who have come here this after- noon to join us in prayer and thanksgiving for the long life of Sr Francis Xavier Geary. I welcome in particular Sr Francis rela- tives, her sister, Sr Dominica OLA and her brothers Jimmy and Willie, her many nieces and nephews, as well as friends and neighbours who have taken time off to be with us. We appreciate the presence of Canon Browne from Youghal and so many SMA Fathers. To each one of you I say Thank You for being here. It is a great comfort and support for us to be joined by you. As OLA Sisters, we share in the grief of Sr Francis family and friends, and we extend to you our sincere sympathy on the loss of this wonderful woman. Frances was born in 1912 in Gortroe, Youghal. She came from a big family of seven girls and six boys. She went to the local pri- mary school and then to the Presentation Sisters Secondary School. Feeling called to a missionary life, the young Frances explored some missionary congregations. Eventually she decided that it was Ardfoyle that she wanted to enter, where her older sister, Lillie (Sr Dominica), had entered three years previously. After her first profession Frances prepared for her mission by training as a Domestic Science teacher and also doing a course in First Aid. She would put these skills to good use in Africa. In 1936, she set sail for Nigeria. Air travel was still in the future, and the sea journey took six weeks. Life of those early days in the tropics was very daunting. On arrival, Frances entered into her work with courage and generosity. Her mission was in Western Nigeria - in our convents in Ebute Metta, Abeokuta, and Ibadan. During the day she taught in the schools, and in the evenings she visited local families, getting to know the people and bringing them an awareness of the Christian message. While in Nigeria, Sr. Frances got the sad news that a sister at home had died, to be followed six weeks later by her dear father who died suddenly. At that time communication was very slow and there were no phones available. It was a very sad and lonely time for her, and she felt cut off from her family in their grieving. But she put her trust in God. In 1942, Sr Francis contacted the deadly black water fever. She was fortunate to survive; but had to say Good Bye to the mis- sions. Here in Ireland and England, she continued to live out the OLA missionary spirit in her own unique way in the ministries in which she served. Appointed to an OLA Nursing Home in Leigh, Lancashire, she cared for the elderly residents lovingly. Later she was transferred to our convent in London where our Sisters pro- vided hostel care for young Irish girls coming to London for the first time. Frances kind and caring nature made her well suited for this min- istry. It was known that she would never turn away an Irish girl who came knocking on her door; even if there were no beds she would accommodate them in the sitting room. After leaving London her next appointment was to Rostrevor, where she was to spend over 25 years. Here she helped with the many groups who came for retreats, seminars and holidays. Even today in Rostrevor Francis is not forgotten by the Benedictine

monks, the Society of St Vincent de Paul and the Knights of St Columbanus. She is remembered for her gentle presence, her warm hospitality and her capacity for caring. Always, no matter where she was, Frances was very close to her family. She made sure to keep in touch, and followed the fortunes not only of the elderly and middle aged, but of the several gener- ations of younger Geary relatives. She loved being invited to wed- dings and christenings. Visits by relatives were always a high point in her life. One of the joys of being back in Ardfoyle these past few years meant that she could see more of them more often. Indeed, it must be said that her relatives have been extremely generous in taking time out to visit her and bringing along the children always gave Frances great happiness and joy. Frances was a gentle and noble lady. Always a good and faithful worker, efficient and serene. We, her Sisters, knew her as a pleas- ant community member, patient, gentle, and gracious. Francis was always interested in who you were and what you were doing; she had time for people, and will be remembered for that. Sr. Frances died in her 97th year, having lived over 75 years as an OLA professed Sister. As we reflect on her long life of commit- ment and faithfulness to God, we are struck by the depth of her faith, her humility and love, which enabled her to see beyond this passing world and into the Promised Land. Early on Monday morning last, her long journey came to an end when the Lord she had served so faithfully came at last to take her home. Our faith assures us that following her patient waiting, Frances has now heard the words I am going now to prepare a place for you, so where I am you may be too . May she rest in peace.

CLASHMORE/KINSALEBEG JUVENILE GAA

Presentation Night. This was held in Kinsalebeg Hall on Friday night, when County Footballer and Hurler, Garry Hurney, presented medals to all the players that were involved in winning teams last year.

There was a good selection of medals and trophies and great cred- it must be given to all the young players who played so well and gave of their best in the name of the club.

A special mention must be given to a young player, Sean Daly,

who received a lovely trophy on the night. This was on behalf of The County Board for Sean’s part in the U-14 County Hurling Final when he was declared Man of the Match. Well done to you Sean. Garry Hurney said a few words after the presentation to all the young players. He said that usually players are rewarded many

times over for what they put into their club and all the hard work

is worth while. He also advised the young lads that their mentors

and trainers put in great work on behalf of the players. He wished the club and players the very best in the forth coming year’s com- petitions. We would like to thank Garry for his attendance on the night and

his kind words, and we would like to wish him well also in the year ahead.

A ’changing of the guard’ in the Juvenile Club is coming about with

the retiring of our long standing Secretary, Billy O’Halloran. Billy did trojan work down through the years for the club, and put in many hours. To mark his time with the club he was presented with a gift by Danny O’Brien, U-16 Captain, who thanked him on behalf of all the players and club members. Billy spent many hours at the club grounds and there is no doubt that he will still be found there in the years to come. The night concluded with a welcome cup of tea for all present and drinks and crisps for the young folk. Many thanks to all the ladies who supplied the food and cakes and who helped on the night. And out thanks also to the hall committee for the use of the hall.

FIRST TENANTS MOVE INTO ENTERPRISE YOUGHAL

Bad economic news is everyone at the moment, but its nothing but good news emanating from Enterprise Youghal, - Youghal’s stun- ning state of the art enterprise centre, Emmet Place Youghal. No less than three diverse but dynamic businesses have taken up residence in the centre since January 2009. The centre is designed to maximise the provision of space for micro-enterprise start-ups, and is aimed at fostering an enterprise culture in Youghal and its environs. Crucial to the project is the competitive pricing struc- ture - recognition that initial start-up phase is often the most diffi- cult task for every business - especially in today’s current econom- ic environment.

- especially in today’s current econom- ic environment. Helen Coady, Manager Enterprise Youghal www.backupearth.com

www.backupearth.com The first of the three tenants to move into the 600,000 building is Solstice Control Systems Ltd.(www.backupearth.com) a secure online data backup service for both businesses and individuals. Unlike all their Irish competitors, they have developed their own software and continue to invest a lot of their resources into devel- oping their product further. In February 2009 the company plans to launch their ’Online Back-up & Data Management Service’ from the "Cloud" Cloud Computing will allow users the world over access to the best software and technology on a Pay-As-You- Go basis; therefore eliminating the need for users to invest in the software and hardware themselves. www.backupearth.com will allow users to protect, access and manage all their digital information from their website; regardless of where information is held. Ie: iphone, blackberry, nokia, com- puter, laptop (PDA) handheld computer, website, gmail, facebook etc. The company is always seeking new users to trial their prod- ucts in return for feedback. If you would like to take part in test- ing the new ’Cloud’ service just send an email to khealy@backu- pearth.com with your details. Speaking on his first day as a tenant of ’Enterprise Youghal’ CEO Ken Healy commented on how valuable Enterprise Youghal is to start-up companies similar to his own. "The facilities here are first rate and the rates are very competi- tive. To establish a business you need every bit of support avail- able to give yourself a competitive advantage over your competi- tion. It’s vital to keep your company operating for as long as pos-

sible on the smallest budget imaginable. The facilities provided by Enterprise Youghal allow www.backupearth the space and time to focus on establishing our business in a professional environ- ment. I would recommend to anyone who is starting up a business to come and see for themselves the value that can be added to their business by locating in Enterprise Youghal"

Best & Co. Carmel Best, of Best & Co. (Legal Service) was delighted to be the second company to take up residence in Enterprise Youghal. Carmel graduated from the University of London with a Batchelor of Laws and from the University of Limerick with a Master of Law in European and Comparative Law. She is a published author in the area of Personal Injuries and teaches Legal Studies one evening per week in St. Colman’s College, Midleton.

Carmel spoke of her move into Enterprise Youghal: "We have recently opened an office at Enterprise Youghal . The centre is ideal in terms of location and rates and it has been beautifully restored throughout. Our aim is to provide an efficient high qual- ity legal service and we have no doubt that the superb facilities available to us at the centre will play a vital role in doing so. We are very excited about the move to say the least."

Hot Desk Facility While each of the new tenants to the facility have chosen from an array of own door facilities, another key feature of the facility is the inclusion of eight ’hot desks’ - individual work stations which can be rented from only 55(+vat) per week A ’hot desk’ is the ideal environment for many start-ups. Shared business facilities can be accessed through renting a desk at a very affordable rate, thereby lessening the risk associated with capital expenditure. ’Hot desks’ also provide a temporary solution to larg- er businesses with over-flow problems at busy periods. All rooms have access to full presentation equipment and broad- band, and shared reception services. Should you require a location for an ’off-site’ meeting or training day, the impressive hi-spec boardroom will cater for up to ten peo- ple. All of your catering requirements can be fully looked after.

So if you are thinking of taking the plunge and starting your own business, maybe considering an alternative location to conduct your business, or simply looking for a venue for your company or group meetings, speak to the Centre Manager, Helen Coady , ’Enterprise Youghal’, St. Mary’s College, Emmet Place, Youghal, Co.

Pobalscoil na Tr on ide Careers Evening

Pobalscoil na Tr on ide held its second Careers Evening on Thursday 15th January 2009. This event was organised for the

Parents and Students of Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Years. They were given the opportunity of speaking with personnel from a number of colleges as well as consulting with up to 50 people who work in a wide range of occupations. The Guidance Department who organised this event are extreme- ly grateful for the support given by the local community in Youghal. Many local people gave up their free time to give advice and information to students and their parents about the work in which they are involved with. Leaving Certificate students had the opportunity of discussing their course options with lecturers and staff from the various Colleges of Further Education, Institutes of Technology, Agricultural Colleges and University College Cork. Janssen Pharmaceuticals and Stryker Instruments, Carrigtohill sent repre- sentatives to give insights in working in these industries. The Defence Forces were on hand to update students about recruitment campaigns etc. Afterwards, Students were given the opportunity

to evaluate the evening and many reported gaining insights into

particular careers and it has served to enthuse and motivate them

to commit further to their studies.

Many of the contributors have subsequently contacted the school and commented on the excellent welcome they received. Students

were on hand to assist the visitors with setting up their stands and providing refreshments. SinØad Mansfield, Treasurer of the Student Council greeted all guests on behalf of the Student Body.

A Head of one particular college contacted the school and highly

commended the students for their obvious pride in the school, their ability and confidence when engaging with adults and the quality of questions asked. College representatives were particularly heartened by the level of interest displayed by parents who accom- panied their sons and daughters. Frank, Gillian and Eilis (organisers) would like to express their gratitude to all who contributed to making the evening an out- standing success. A special word of thanks is reserved for Youghal Rotary Club who assisted greatly in recruiting a wide range of pro- fessionals. We also wish to express a sincere thank you to the fol- lowing, Youghal Fire Brigade, Paramedic Pat McCarthy, Youghal Garda , Youghal Citizens Information Advice Bureau, Youghal Youth Officer, Nicola Lucey, Catherine Ryan Garda Youth Diversion Officer, Eric Trihy, Community Drugs Worker, Youghal Credit Union, Quality Hotel, Redbarn.

A TEXTUAL RELATIONSHIP

Finger lingers on the phone You’re far from home but not alone Your mobile offers you cut-price Conversation without a voice

Digital communication Is a ’textological’ sensation Blip-blip or bleeeeeeeep it’s all the same Check the message, read the name

Abrvi8 b4 u send TMI to your best friend Watch that screen -it’s on its way Confirmation? Press OK

Button prose at finger tips, No need for you to move your lips And if you want to add a smile :-) is the style

Tongue lashings will be feared no more Finger waving lies in store Want to add bite to your bark? Thump out exclamation marks!!!

I loved a girl but expectation Only brought on deep frustration As soon as we’d engage in sex Some gobshite would send her a text!

The process used make me cry As I watched her hit ’reply’ So I said, ’you sleep alone Unless you get a land line phone!!’

A batchelor a man will stay He lost his voice on his big day ’Do you take this girl ?’, the curate asked He sent a text but the system crashed!!

A bleep was heard where the man lay dead As the rosary was being said Had he text’d from Heaven as we prayed? Or had a message been delayed?

I watch the pint that I’m expecting But all I see is a barmaid texting My thirst must wait while she’s hellbent Ensuring that her words are sent

The replacement of the spoken word By finger power is so absurd We master gizmos as they come But who is under the texting thumb?!

EAST CORK GAA

 

The second East Cork Board meeting of the year took place in Midleton on January 21st. Clubs were reminded of the upcom- ing Sc r na bPÆist semi-finals in Watergrasshill on January 31st at 6pm and February 1st at 2.30pm, with the final on February 15th at 2.30pm. The Sc r Sinsear East Cork Final will take place on February 8th at 7pm in Lisgoold, and the closing date for entries is January 30th. The annual TrÆth na gCeist will take place in Bishopstown on February 18th at 9pm. Congratulations were extended to St. Catherine’s, whose ballad group recently won the Sc r na n g Munster Final and now progress to the All- Ireland Final. Clubs were informed that a Referees’ Foundation Course will

It is hoped that those clubs current- ly without referees will make a particular effort. Ger Lane was reappointed Chairman of the East Cork Referees’ Committee for 2009, and the congratulations of the Board were extended to Cathal McAllister, who recently received the Best Up-and- Coming Referee Award at the National Referee Awards Banquet. After some discussion on the Junior Football situation in East Cork, a vote was taken on a joint Killeagh/Dungourney motion to play the first round of the Junior A Football Championship in March but to defer the remaining rounds until the autumn. This was narrowly defeated and this year’s championship will be

played according to the same format as last year. Draws were made for Junior A and B football and Junior B hurling. Junior A Football Championship:

The bowling session last Tuesday saw a record score over fifteen ends, which shall probably not be equalled or exceeded for a long time. The score of thirtyfive points was achieved by three ladies, all excellent bowlers. the ladies were, Noreen Hennessy, Carol Mullally and our very efficient Hon Treasurer, Rose Russel O’Donovan. Well done, Ladies. You have certainly set the bar for all the other members, particularly the men. This once again proves that indoor bowling is a sport for everyone and skill rather than strength is the dominant factor. Our lady members are not lacking in this department. Bowling shall continue next Tuesday aat the GAA pavilion, Magnier’s Hill.

So lads, please, when you get the text, make up your minds and get in touch with your com- mittee member as soon as possible so numbers can be forwarded onto the relevant golf club and messing with money can be avoid- ed on the day. It makes things easier all round. Officers elected for 2009 are as follows. Captain: Bryan Walsh Vice Captain and Treasurer: Donal Kenny President: Michael (Tricks) Sullivan Secretary: Derek Kiely Committee: Billy Forrest, Pad Joe Terry, Jim Fahy, John Malone Jnr, Mick Davis, Alan Downing.

YOUGHAL SOLDIERS IN CHAD

Pictured are the Youghal Men from the 98 Infantry Battalion deployed on the European Union Force Mission ( EUFOR- TCHAD/RCA) to Chad-Central Africa under command of Lt. Colonel Kieran Brennen (brother of GAA President Nicky Brennan) last September to contribute to protecting civilians in danger, particularly refugees and displaced persons. They help to facilitate the delivery of humanitarian aid and the free movement of humanitarian personnel by helping to improve security in the area. PO Micilin O’Keeffe (Navy) from Youghal told www.youghalon- line.com " It gets very hot around midday and cool in the evening but we’re very lucky because from June to September it is the rainy season and it’s terrible". He said "People are very friendly but have very little and live in straw huts and the refugee camps when they cross the border fleeing the conflict". "Its mostly Kilkenny led bat- talion with other units from Collins Barracks, Cork, Clonmel, Curragh Camp and four personnel from the Navy". Kilkenny Sgt. Whelan and Petty Officer Chef Micilin O’Keeffe supervise the daily running of the catering in camp Ciara which is located at Goz Beida, Chad. It is a 4-month deployment mission, which finishes around February The European Union Force Mission ( EUFOR-TCHAD/RCA) comes as a response to the dire situation of an estimated 230,000 refugees from Darfur who continue to flee into bordering eastern Chad and north-eastern Central African Republic (CAR). Armed Sudanese rebel groups have continuously carried out attacks across the Sudanese border, endangering local residents and Darfurian refugees alike. The 99th Infantry Battalion will deploy to Chad in late January/early February 2009, to Goz Beida in southeastern Chad for four months. They will be presented with their unit colours by the Minister for Defence in McKee Barracks on 14 January 2009.

Ceolta Si youths for TG4’s Glas Vegas

On Wednesday 23rd of January TG4 contacted Micheal de Buitleir of Comhaltas to provide a Trad music group for the upcoming TV show Glas Vegas. There was no time to dilly-dally and after a quick committee decision it was decided to put forward some of the under 18 members. On Saturday 24th January, 8 members of Youghal’s Ceolta S , going by the name ’PlÆmÆs’ departed for Dublin to play on the TG4 talent show ’Glas Vegas’. Practice in the Montrose Hotel on Saturday night quickly became a lovely session with the whole Hotel listening and wanting to know more about us, including belief that we were "The Next Chieftains". Hotel deal included Full Irish on Sunday morning, which was mighty - we also met Nicky Brennan of the GAA and we told him to look for our Christy Cooney We headed straight into rehearsals where we got to know the other contestants. Then we were whisked away to get our make-up done, something that was certainly an experience for the boys! During a break from recording Ricky introduced himself to Leo from Fair City and we all had our photos taken - Leo was really nice and friendly. We made our way back to Studio 5 to record the show We undoubtedly felt like stars as our make-up was touched up one last time as we prepared to go in front of the camera and before we could say ’RT ’ the floor manager was giving us our cue. We were going to be on television! . RTE was magic - extremely education- al, made a complete television programme in one day, got to see all the various jobs performed by the team - producer, director, sound man/people, lighting people, camera crew, make-up, stage crew, judges, managers, back-room support, legal documentation, front of house, scripts, project management documents, presenter, more make-up, hair stylists. The weekend was thoroughly enjoyed by all and the question on everybody’s lips coming home was ’when can we do it again? The youthful members of Ceolta Si were Sinead Mansfield, Eimer Kelly, Orla Morrison, Aoife Brockie, Ricky Roche, Diarmuid Morney, and Don Brockie. A special thanks to Ann Morney who looked after the needs of the group for the weekend

Youghal Lifeboat Crew Recieve RNLI Medic Certificates

The Youghal RNLI crew members received RNLI Medic certifi- cates recently at their annual Christmas Party held at the GAA club. The crew underwent the course in November 2008. The RNLI medic course replaces the Red Cross First Aid training previously undertaken by RNLI crew. This was necessary as the Life Support training our crew receive has to reflect the fact that in may cases we are not in a position to have an ambulance at the scene (and certainly not within 8 minutes) - so we are the ambulance! Our crews have to provide prolonged patient care to casualties under difficult circumstances, hostile weather and challenging sea states to say the least. This course equips and prepares them to do exact- ly that. It is approved by the British Paramedic Association (BPA) and the Anesthesia Trauma & Critical Care Group (ATACC), demonstrat- ing the standard and prestige of the course. It is accredited by the RNLI - the First RNLI accredited First Aid course of its kind. The main objective of the course is to develop really strong patient assessment skills which will enable our Crews to identify if their patient is time critical (likely to die relatively quickly if not trans- ported to definitive medical care i.e. hospital). The course also develops additional skills enabling the Medic to effectively care for their casualty during transport, whether it be a casualty of significant trauma, a medical emergency or of immer- sion. The advance nature of this course means it does not boast a 100% pass rate, candidates are certainly put through their paces and must demonstrate competency in key skills in addition to their ability to perform a focused patient assessment. RNLI medic trainees undergo intensive practical training reinforced with theoretical knowledge, usually over a four week period. They must also pass two written exams and complete a very realistic final medical exercise. On successful completion they will qualify as a RNLI medic. We are very proud that all of our crew have passed this course with flying colours.

RNLI NEWS

Figures released by the RNLI today Friday 30 January 2009, on RNLI SOS day, show that last year Irish lifeboats launched 863 times and rescued 993 people. Despite a disappointing summer the demand on Irish volunteer lifeboat crews remained high, with 19 people a week being brought to safety after getting into difficulty on the water. These figures show once again how busy Irish lifeboat crews are and how important the service is that these brave volunteers pro- vide in their communities. With the poor weather last year we expected to see a drop in the number of callouts but this has proven only slight. A close examination of the type of callouts our crew respond to shows the three most common calls for help are machinery failure/damage; stranded vessels/people; and medical emergencies at sea or on islands. Of the types of incidents we attend to there has been a marked decrease in callouts to fishing vessels - down 39 on the previous year. Callouts to power pleasure craft remain high, but are slightly down on the previous year to 237, while there has been an increase in callouts to sail pleasure craft - up 11 on 2007 to 168 last year.’ Now the charity is calling on the public to respond to its own call for help by supporting RNLI SOS day. RNLI Fundraising and Communications Manager Anna Classon says by raising funds the public will be giving their support to their volunteer lifeboat crews and will ensure that they can go on saving lives at sea during the turbulent economic climate:

Key facts about the RNLI The RNLI charity saves lives at sea. Its volunteers provide a 24- hour search and rescue service around Ireland and the UK. The RNLI operates over 230 lifeboat stations with 43 in Ireland. The RNLI is independent of the Coast Guard and government and depends on voluntary donations and legacies to maintain its rescue service. Since the RNLI was founded in 1824 its lifeboat crews and lifeguards have saved over 137,000 lives. The RNLI is a charity registered in England, Scotland and the Republic of Ireland.

GIFT IDEAS FOR VALENTINES DAY

Valentine’s Day is all about love. The best gifts are the ones that show some emotion, so give a gift to your loved one that truly expresses how you feel. From traditional chocolates to cutting- edge gadgets, Consumer Guide and HowStuffWorks have culled all the best ideas to present this gift guide for an elegant, beautiful day.

Chocolates There are few things that say "Valentine’s Day" more than choco- lates. Little pink hearts can symbolize your love, but four pounds of little pink chocolate hearts can appease the cravings of a loved one.

Flowers Flowers, on the other hand, usually aren’t for him. Provided your special someone is mom or a sweetheart, you can give the gift of flowers on that special day. Red roses are a traditional favorite, and who are we to go against tradition? Electronics While not a traditionally romantic idea, electronics can make a nice gift for someone who doesn’t do gooey or traditional. And you can really make someone feel special with a useful gadget. Music While you’re slipping into something a little more comfortable, it is a good idea to put on a little mood music. There are CDs that are devoted to love, and these usually are safe choices to strike the right cord. If you want to be more specific, there are crooners who have built their careers around the love song, and a few of our favorites include Tony Bennett, Al Green, and Barry White. Plus, if the hol- iday has a theme song, it would have to be "My Funny Valentine." No one, but no one, has ever sung that song like Chet Baker. Perfume It is just as important to smell great as to look great. Giving the gift of perfume is never a bad idea. Some of the nicest scents include J’Adore Perfume by Christian Dior for her and, for him, Very Sexy for Him by Victoria Secret.

Jewelry If you are still stuck, it may be time to open the wallet and buy some jewelry. If you want to combine practical with beautiful, you should consider buying a watch. Functional, elegant, and appreci- ated, a watch is a great gift. Functionality may not be the ticket to a great gift for you. Look for jewelry that is more specific for the holiday--and if you really need to make a statement, remember that pearls are always before swine. And when all else fails, and all the gift ideas are exhausted, there is only one thing left. Earlier in the guide we said that there were few things that say "Valentine’s Day" like chocolates, but there is one thing. As Marilyn Monroe once sang:

But square-cut or pear-shaped, These rocks don’t lose their shape. Diamonds are a girl’s best friend. Diamond earrings are always very nice. They are a flashy gift. Remember, though, that diamond earrings get lonely. You may have to purchase a diamond necklace as well. And if you really need to rack up the brownie points, adding in a diamond bracelet will only complete the gift and complete the holiday. Happy Valentine’s Day.

Valentines Day Wine

n n t t i i n n e e s s D D a a

BUBBLY is the obvious choice for for this most-romantic of occasions, but you needn’t stick to the fizzy stuff for the whole of your celebratory meal. As romantic as Champagne and other sparkling wines are, it s not necessarily something that everyone wants to drink throughout their meal. So, bubbly aside, we ve got some point- ers on finding the ideal wine partners to our romantic dinners- for-two.

For an Italian menu Italian wine is very food-friendly and is made in a wide range of styles. If you re having Italian-style food, it s a no-brainer to drink Italian wine with it. Italian wine is very food-friendly and is made in a wide range of styles. It s Valentine s Day, so be adventurous and leave the Pinot Grigio on the shelf. Choose something more exciting to go with those prawns. Italian white wines used to have a reputation for being dull, but there are plenty of good whites being made. If you want to impress with your wine-savvy, search out bottles labelled with the names Fiano di Avellino, Greco di Tufo, or Falanghina. Failing that, a decent Italian Chardonnay should do the trick. You ll need something entirely different to go with the pizza-style steak (no need to drink the full bottle ). Youcan t go far wrong with a good bottle of Chianti, but an even better match might be a Nero d Avola from Sicily or an easy-going Barbera d Alba from further north.

Heart-friendly menu This menu is stuffed full of fresh flavours and good-for-you ingredients, such as Vitamins A, C and potassium found in watercress, antioxidant-packed walnuts and omega 3-rich mack- erel. A crisp white wine would work well with the starter, and you could carry on drinking it with the main course too. We d rec- ommend something like a Chenin Blanc from South Africa or a Verdelho from Australia or a fresh, aromatic English white wine. Don t be tempted, though, to drink red wine with the mackerel the combination tends to be pretty unpleasant, leav- ing a metallic aftertaste.

THE PERFECT GIFT FOR VALENTINES DAY

1. Go for the untradi- tional. Rather than hit- ting the nearly bare Valentine gift section of the store, try shoot- ing for the DVDs instead. Plan a whole romantic night by pur- chasing a romantic movie, microwave

popcorn and comfy blanket. Bring them home to your sweets in a nice, and easy, gift bag. The thought will make it seem planned.

2. Make an event. Think back to your first date. Where

did you go with your Valentine? For a last minute Valentine gift with a big impact work to recreate that first date or first encounter. If your first date was less

than interesting, cover up your lack of a Valentine gift with a flood of loving gestures. Give them a great mas- sage, mixed CD or a loving poem.

3. Cook a meal. Instead of bringing home a gift, bring

home some groceries and candles for a romantic din- ner. Cooking up a fantastic meal for two can set the mood. If a Valentine gift is mandatory hit the music store for a CD your date has been wanting. It will give

you something to listen to during dinner.

4. Make reservations. If this is a first date or you have

not been dating for long it is important to make dinner reservations. Many times this can be done Valentine s Day but it will appear that the event was well planned out since many people will be turned away at the door on this very busy night. 5. Have flowers delivered. Sure flowers are kind of boring but, if they are delivered to your Valentine s work place they have a bigger impact. Many florists will be able to accommodate this for an increased price.

THE HISTORY OF SAINT VALENTINE’S DAY

Valentine’s Day started in the time of the Roman Empire. In ancient Rome, February 14th was a holiday to honour Juno. Juno was the Queen of the Roman Gods and Goddesses. The Romans also knew her as the Goddess of women and marriage. The following day, February 15th, began the Feast of Lupercalia. The lives of young boys and girls were strictly separate. However, one of the customs of the young people was name drawing. On the eve of the fes- tival of Lupercalia the names of Roman girls were written on slips of paper and placed into jars. Each young man would draw a girl’s name from the jar and would then be partners for the duration of the festival with the girl whom he chose. Sometimes the pairing of the children last- ed an entire year, and often, they would fall in love and would later marry. Under the rule of Emperor Claudius II Rome was involved in many bloody and unpopular campaigns. Claudius the Cruel was having a diffi- cult time getting soldiers to join his military leagues. He believed that the reason was that roman men did not want to leave their loves or families. As a result, Claudius cancelled all marriages and engagements in Rome. The good Saint Valentine was a priest at Rome in the days of Claudius II. He and Saint Marius aided the Christian martyrs and secretly married cou- ples, and for this kind deed Saint Valentine was apprehended and dragged before the Prefect of Rome, who condemned him to be beaten to death with clubs and to have his head cut off. He suffered martyrdom on the 14th day of February, about the year 270. At that time it was the custom in Rome, a very ancient custom, indeed, to celebrate in the month of February the Lupercalia, feasts in honour of a heathen god. On these occa- sions, amidst a variety of pagan ceremonies, the names of young women were placed in a box, from which they were drawn by the men as chance directed. The pastors of the early Christian Church in Rome endeavoured to do away with the pagan element in these feasts by substituting the names of saints for those of maidens. And as the Lupercalia began about the middle of February, the pastors appear to have chosen Saint Valentine’s Day for the celebration of this new feaSt. So it seems that the custom of young men choosing maidens for valentines, or saints as patrons for the coming year, arose in this way.

Valentines Day Chocolate Cake

Ingredients

175g self-raising flour, sifted to add extra air, we want light in our cake.

1 teaspoon baking powder, to ensure raising ability.

175g organic butter, should be soft and oozing onto plate. 175g unrefined caster sugar.

3 large, free-range organic eggs.

1 tablespoon cocoa powder, I prefer Fairtrade organic then I can eat my cake guilt-free. Warm your oven to gas mark 3 (170 C).

Method Waltz a bit of butter around two sponge tins. I find seven-inch diameter sufficient for this cake. I also layer a piece of baking parchment onto the base of the tin to ensure ease of exit. Simply introduce all the ingredients into your food processor. Then mingle until waved into a uniform dark brown. At this stage the mixture should be moist. If it lacks moisture one, or two, tea- spoonfuls of tepid water should be added and mingled. Divide equally between your awaiting tins. Place in centre of oven for about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool slightly before, gently, encir- cling inner rim with palette knife. Tip onto cooling rack. Carefully peel back paper bases. Allow to relax. To assemble your cake, cover one half of the cake with chocolate fudge. Take a handful of fresh raspberries and scatter onto surface. Place second cake-half firmly on top. Put rest of chocolate fudge on top. Topping should dribble down sides sluttishly. Decorate with a pair of raspberries in centre. Feed generous slice to your Valentine. If your tastes are very rich, add cream.
