Passport renewal

July 2017


I have booked a family holiday and checked my passport to make sure it’s still valid. It is, but it’s due to expire a couple of weeks before I travel. How can I make sure that I can get a new one in time?


You don’t have to wait until the expiry of your passport to renew it. If you apply for a new passport before your current one has expired, the period that your new passport is valid for begins from when you apply, rather than from when your previous passport expires.

The website of the Passport Service,, lists the current average processing times for different types of passport applications. The quickest way to renew your passport is by using the online application service, which was introduced earlier this year. You can use the online service if your

Q. You don't see women or men carrying home supermarket groceries balanced on their heads, but if they did, who would pull off this feat with the least effort?

A. You Western shoppers can step aside because some Kenyan women (and in other cultures) have so mastered the art of head-carrying they can balance and transport loads up to 20% of their body weight - or a 25-pound bag of potatoes for a 125-pound woman - without having to breathe heavily or exert any extra effort, says Jearl Walker in "The Flying Circus of Physics." Biomechanics is their secret, with the carrier's center of mass moving in a rhythmic up-down fashion and her weight shifting from foot to foot, much like the motions of a unicyclist.

All of this may require no more effort than carrying

A team from Sanofi Waterford has combined with some of their Dublin-based colleagues to raise more than €5,000 for CMRF Crumlin who provide vital funds to Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital and the National Children’s Research Centre.

The funds were raised through a combination of a collection and company donation at a recent stationary triathlon at the Waterford biopharmaceutical and medical devices campus.

Starting at 6am and cycling, rowing and striding through the day, participants collectively covered the distance from Waterford to Sanofi’s global headquarters in Paris via Dublin.

Sarah Joyce, CMRF Crumlin, attended the event and said: “This is amazing. We’ve been a partner with Sanofi for several years now and just to see this enthusiasm still within the organisation to assist CMRF Crumlin is amazing. The funds

Treating Osteoarthritis

Dear Breda,

I suffer from osteoarthritis. I am averse to taking strong pain killers because of any potential side effects, and would like to know about other options for treating the condition. The stiffness in my neck and knees is relieved periodically by osteopathy, but it's the constant ache in my finger joints - which incidentally resemble gnarled tree roots - that gets a bit much sometimes. Can you suggest any alternative treatments?

Dear Reader,

Thank you for your letter. Osteoarthritis is an all too common complaint which I see on a fairly regular basis in my clinics. Whilst I never make any guarantees, I have seen a number of clients whose joint problems have improved greatly by following

Waterford Crystal F.C Schoolboys/Academy is back in full swing after a few turbulent years. After a number of years without schoolboy football the academy was born with seven players turning up for training. The beginning of Waterford Crystal schoolboy academy had just begun.

In 2011 the club had to move out of their spiritual home at the Waterford Crystal Sports & Leisure Centre. This has been tough for all concerned but thanks to a core group of club members we've managed to make it through these past few years which have been tough to say the least and hopefully we can push on and make the club successful again. It was just over 10 years ago that our under 16 team defeated Belvedere of Dublin in the AUL on penalties to the win the national under 16 Barry Cup. So hopefully

Letters to the Editor


    Rights & WrongsGiven the ubiquity of the car it is no wonder that any time there is proposed legislation banning certain behaviours that there is some sort of outcry against it. The Cabinet approval of Transport Minister Shane Ross’ ban of three months of anyone registering a 50-80mg alcohol reading is yet another example of people saying that there are too many laws and legislations surrounding driving. The fact remains however that there are still too many people on the road drinking and driving and i …
