€4m in capital funding to be made available for community youth groups


“More than 1,500 groups can apply from September”

Statement by the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone


Monday 31st July, 2017

More than 1,500 community youth groups are set to benefit from a €4m capital fund being established  by the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs, Dr Katherine Zappone.

Minister Zappone is confirming that the money is being made available to allow clubs buy equipment which will support their work with young people.


Announcing the establishment of the fund, Minister Katherine Zappone added:

“Reversing the cuts of recent years for youth services is a priority for me – and this year we took a big step forward with current funding increasing by 10% to €57m.

However more must be done. Today (Monday 31st July) I can confirm that money is now being made available to community based youth clubs with the establishment of a €4m capital fund.

The impact will be significant. Over 1,500 volunteer led clubs will be eligible to apply, reaching practically every community in the country. I encourage clubs to examine which sports, arts, adventure or other equipment they need the most and be ready to apply.

This is an opportunity to offer our young people opportunities for creativity, recreation and adventure.

These volunteer led youth clubs translate our policies into reality on the ground. They are in the frontline providing young people with indoor and outdoor activities to prevent them falling into trouble. They also improve health, wellbeing and build team spirit.

The value of this work must never be under-estimated. It turns our policies to tackle anti-social behaviour, underage drinking and drug abuse as well as anti-obesity plans into reality. It is worthy of Government support.

The Application process for the funding is expected to open in late September. My officials will work with the local Education and Training Boards to ensure that the money can be delivered to successful applicants as soon as possible and turned into action on the ground."

“Connecting for Life Cork” – a new suicide and self harm prevention plan for Cork.

“Connecting for Life Cork” – New Suicide & Self Harm Prevention Plan for Cork Published
Minister of State at the Department of Health with special responsibility for Mental Health and Older People Mr. Jim Daly TD, today (Wednesday July 26th) officially launched “Connecting for Life Cork” – a new suicide and self harm prevention plan for Cork.
The launch took place at Millennium Hall, Cork City Hall and was attended by a large number of those involved in the drafting of the plan, including community and voluntary groups and members of the public from across Cork.
The four-year plan runs from 2017 to 2020 inclusive, and its vision is a Cork where fewer lives are lost through suicide, and where communities and individuals are empowered to improve their mental health and wellbeing.  The development of Connecting for Life Cork included extensive county-wide consultation with the public, community and voluntary organisations, public bodies and with health care professionals.
A total of 356 people took part in public meetings, with 700 comments and suggestions captured. As well as that, 50 people and 69 services responded to online surveys and another 40 people attended a separate youth consultation at City Hall, facilitated by ReachOut.com. Meetings were also held with individuals and key groups directly affected by suicide. This extensive feedback then formed the basis for a set of 72 actions which are the backbone of the plan – a summary of some of those actions is included below.Work has already begun on implementing some of these actions. Suicide prevention work and training has also continued while work was underway on drafting the plan.
While the development of the plan was led by HSE Mental Health Services, it will be implemented by the entire community.
Minister of State with responsibility for Mental Health Mr. Jim Daly TD said “I am delighted to launch Connecting for Life Cork. This plan particularly recognises the critical role that communities and local structures play in suicide prevention, and reinforces and supports this role. The supports that can be given to vulnerable individuals from the community, such as social support, follow-up care, tackling stigma and supporting those bereaved by suicide, can make a crucial difference to a person in distress. This plan, tailored to Cork’s specific needs, is a welcome addition to helping us care for our community effectively.”
Head of Mental Health Services with the HSE’s Cork Kerry Community Healthcare Organisation Sinead Glennon said “This is a community issue and we need the entire community to be involved. That’s why the plan itself was developed in a collaborative way, with as much consultation as possible. Today that this is the beginning of the process, not the end – the real work begins now in implementing the plan and making it a reality. We look forward to working with everyone at the launch, and the wider community, in lifting this plan from the page into reality.”
“I wish to pay tribute to the many people who have played a role in bringing this plan together. It’s important that this cross-community approach continues as the plan is implemented. We in the Community Healthcare Organisation look forward to working with all to implement this important plan,” she added.
HSE Resource Officer for Suicide Prevention Mr. Martin Ryan said that the plan had been based on county-wide consultation, with great engagement from the public, communities, voluntary bodies and other agencies. “This has led to a comprehensive action plan for Cork, with all agencies stepping forward to support in roles as lead agency or partner agency. This will mean that going forward for implementation we have a very strong platform and commitment from across the county.”
Mr.Ryan’s comments were echoed by fellow HSE Resource Officer for Suicide Prevention Ms. Helena Cogan by saying “The implementation of the Connecting for life Cork, will seek to build upon the suicide prevention initiatives that the HSE, it’s partners and other organisations have been committed to for many years in Cork. And  it is  essential that people realise the importance of making it a priority to look after their own mental health and wellbeing and also be alert to the signs of distress in those around them, as  the prevention of suicide is everyone’s business”. 
The Chief Executives of Cork City Council and Cork County Council have both written forwards to the plan. Ms. Ann Doherty, Chief Executive of Cork City Council said “We in Cork City Council look forward to continuing the work on a collaborative and systematic approach to suicide”. The Chief Executive of Cork County Council Mr. Tim Lucey pledged “the full support of County Council in implemented the plan through Cork County”.
Some of the 72 actions included in the “Connecting For Life Cork” Plan include:
·         Raising awareness in schools of available youth mental health supports and services.
·         Providing clubs in all sports with information on youth mental health, suicide prevention supports and services.
·         Campaigns using the experience of local ambassadors to normalise positive attitudes to mental health and reduce stigma.
·         Completing a review of annual festivals, fund days, park days, fun runs and similar events with a view to exploring options of collaboration with services relating to stigma reduction.
·         Increase the uptake in Cork of training including SafeTALK, ASIST, Stress Control. Also increasing awareness in the community of those who are trained. Almost 10,000 Cork people have completed the half-day SafeTALK training in recent years.
·         Delivering annual training and awareness programmes to staff and volunteers in agencies which have contact with vulnerable groups.
·         The introduction of a mental health and wellbeing focus into parent and baby/toddler groups on a pilot basis.
·         Providing information on supports and services to all religious groups.
·         Establish a communication protocol between first responders eg Gardai and the HSE in the intermediate aftermath of deaths which are likely to be determined as suicide.
·         Support and resource the needs of local GPs in the area of suicide prevention, especially in relation to training.
·         Delivering targeting community workshops on positive mental health and wellbeing.
·         Increase the number of schools in Cork who are part of the Healthy Ireland Health Promoting Schools Network and who are thereby taking a whole school approach to supporting mental health and wellbeing.
·         Continued support for and development of the Suicide Crisis Assessment Nurse (SCAN) service across the city and county.

Did Clause F mean that Large scale Boundary Extension was only outcome.

The insertion of Clause F in the terms of reference for the Expert Advisory Group (MacKinnon) to advise the Minister regarding relevant options in relation to future local government arrangements for Cork, ensured that there was only going to be one outcome and that was a large scale boundary extension for the city.

The expert group were asked in particular, to address  matters regarding future local government arrangements for Cork and most of these were predictable and expected in view of the storm kicked up by city politicians and other vested interests, However the insertion of clause F meant that the Mackinnon group had to take particular note of the role of the City as a regional and national growth centre.
The clause in question read as follows: ( The group needs) .........to address  matters regarding future local government arrangements for Cork and take particular note of .........)

Clause f . The potential of local government to further the economic and social wellbeing and sustainable development of Cork City and County, including the strategic role and impact of the city in particular as a regional and national growth centre, and the need to have regard to the respective characteristics and needs both of urban and rural areas;

Fast forward to the MacKinnon report itself  and you see.........

9.9.5 The Group believes the balance of the arguments support two local authorities: one dedicated to realising the potential of Cork City and the surrounding metropolitan area, and a separate local authority serving the needs of towns, villages and rural communities that are neither urban or metropolitan in character. In particular, the Group believes that a dedicated local authority serving the needs of the Cork metropolitan area is the best means of ensuring a focus on the growth and economic development of the city and its hinterland, to the benefit of Cork City and County Cork. Given the position set out in the recent issues paper regarding the forthcoming National Planning Framework (Department of Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government, 2017), if the Government’s intention is to consolidate Cork’s position as Ireland’s second city and driving growth in the wider Southern region, the balance of power and authority for the city must lie with the metropolitan area. In a unified / merged authority, there is a risk of policies and decisions diluting the focus on the city and suburbs and, as a result, the potential of the wider Cork area is less likely to be realised. 

There is no doubt that proximity to the city has enabled parts of the county to prosper and grow, however a lot of these areas are rural in character and have benefitted enormously from being part of rural Ireland and being part of Cork County Council's administrative area. They are special places with a distinct rural and community feel in character. Carrigtwohil up to a few years ago was considered to be a village by the locals themselves. It has not even had the opportunity to develope as a town and now it is targeted as part of a city eleven miles away that it has little in common with.

Smiddy slams McKinnon report as Carrigtwohill rejects Boundary Extension (Christy Parker)

More than 120 people attended a meeting organised by Muintir na Tíre and Carrigtwohill Community Council at Carrigtwohil community hall on July 4th to discuss the proposal to greatly expand the city boundary to the area.

People at the public meeting in Carrigtwohill, 11 miles from Cork, were strongly opposed to being brought under the control of City Hall.

Carrigtwohil community council chairman  Anthony Barry warned the Mackinnon proposal could dissect the Carrigtwohill area under two administrations.


Alf Smiddy, whose previous report recommending a single local authority for city and county was rejected, told the public meeting the Mackinnon report was an attempt by “a weaker city administration” to seize the rates and land of its “more dynamic” county equivalent.
The 2015 Smiddy Report had also envisaged an enlarged metropolitan district, forming one of three municipal divisions.
 At the meeting Mr Smiddy dismissed the Mackinnon document as “a rambling, cobbled-together report, born out of political expediency” and “tantamount to giving two fingers to Cork County Council”.
He said he found it “bizarre” that Minister Simon Coveney had welcomed his own report, before subsequently initiating the Mackinnon project.
The report, he added, had been “torpedoed” by co-ordinated attacks by city vested interests, including politicians and media.
It would be “shocking, appalling and terrible” if it was rammed through, he said, and suggested a countywide plebiscite to decide it.
Christine Lane Of The Cork County PPN expressed concerns that the PPN in Cork was Shouted down and dismissed by MCKinnon.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Date/Time: May 5th to September 17th 2017
Event: 
: Portraits: Women of Cork and the U.S. Navy 1917-1919 : Organised by Damian Shiels
Location: Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh, Co. Cork
Additional Information: In 1917 thousands of American naval servicemen came to Ireland to participate in the First World War. Their interactions with local women, particularly in Cork where they were based, became a major social issue. Many Irish women ultimately married these American sailors, with Queenstown / Cobh in particular seeing a large number of weddings. Who were these women and what were their stories? New research by Damian Shiels to identify them using U.S. passport applications has revealed something of the past - and the portraits of many. The exhibition at Sirius Arts Centre will consider a number of these images, and the stories of those young women depicted.
Sirius Arts Centre is housed in the former Royal Cork Yacht Club building - a beautiful Italiante building that was designed by Anthony Salvin and built by James Smith Barry of Fota in 1854. The RCYC operated from here for over a century. During the first World War the building was used to host many of these American and British naval servicemen as a place to relax and socialize. Women were not permitted to socialize there nor could they become members of the yacht club until much later.
Damian Shiels is an archaeologist and historian with Rubicon Heritage Services Ltd. Formerly a curator in the National Museum of Ireland, he is a specialist on Irish military archaeology and history, on which he has published and lectured widely both nationally and internationally. His latest book "The Forgotten Irish: Irish Emigrant Experiences in America" was published by The History Press in 2016. This exhibition is kindly supported by the Port of Cork.

Location: B.E.D.A. Community Hall, Ballineen, Co. Cork
Additional Information: Published by Ballineen, Enniskeane and Newcestown voluntary group.  Murragh, remains an important focal point in local history, and a place of Christian worship/burial since at least the 12
th century.  An ancient burial mound within the church bounds, gives evidence of pre-Christian activity and burial practice.  In recent centuries, movement of the River Bandon course undermined and washed away, a large portion of the graveyard and most of the church.  This book is the culmination of many years hard work by dedicated local groups, intent on preserving and recording the historic character of this ancient and sacred place.  The old graveyard was cleared, headstone inscriptions recorded and long forgotten graves identified. The book was greatly enhanced by the generosity of descendants of those interred at Murragh, who shared their family histories and allowed us the privilege of recording local (and not so local) living  memory.  A must read for anyone interested in local history and mythology.
Book launch - 3pm on 30 July at BEDA Hall, Ballineen. All welcome.
