Gifts that last a lifetime

A goat isn’t the kind of gift you’d expect to find under the Christmas tree! However, the gift of a goat could be the ideal present for a friend or family member – a gift that gives both the recipient a great feeling, while at the same time doing real good for a family in need in Africa.

This Christmas, Irish development charity Gorta-Self Help Africa is offering shoppers the chance to select one of its practical ‘Lifetime Gifts’, allowing them to help rural families escape the cycle of hunger and poverty in some of the poorest regions on Earth.

From livestock to farming tools, seed to irrigation systems, the charity gifts, starting from just €10 will help small farming families in sub-Saharan Africa to produce more food on their farm, improve their incomes and brighten their future.

Let there be light

Are you affected positively or negatively by the clocks going back? Overnight, we lose an hour of light in our evenings, and I remain convinced that we only benefit by 30 minutes extra light in the morning! That said, I was finding it difficult to get up in the mornings with the darkness, so whilst personally I don’t like to see the clocks go back, I do like enjoy the mornings being brighter.

But it does take time to adjust to the darker evenings. I love the sights, sounds and smells of Autumn - the beautiful colours, the crisp mornings, the clear skies - but there is no doubt I will be happier when we reach

A major, two-year European Research Council-funded programme involving over 100 people diagnosed with the early stages of the most common cause of blindness has shown an improvement in the vision of those taking a dietary supplement of carotenoids.

Participants in the study all had the early stages of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) which is estimated to impact on 7.2% of Irish adults aged 50 and over.

Those living with AMD would usually have been expected to experience a continued deterioration in their vision over the two years of the clinical trial. Instead, those receiving carotenoids showed a significant improvement across 24 out of 32 tests of vision. 40% of trial participants had what is deemed to be a clinically meaningful

As the winter sets in, more people start drying their clothes indoors. However, as the Asthma Society of Ireland has warned, that many of the 11,039 asthmatics in Waterford could be damaging their health by doing so.

"Research has shown drying wet clothes indoors can raise moisture levels by up to 30%. Moist environments encourage the growth of mould which can release ‘seeds’ called spores", explains Averil Power, CEO of the Asthma Society of Ireland. "These often invisible spores can trigger breathing problems in people with asthma and other respiratory conditions."

The Asthma Society of Ireland has teamed up with Dyson Ireland to alert at risk asthmatics to the importance of managing their indoor air quality.

People whose asthma is more likely to be triggered by fungal and mould spores include babies and children, elderly people, people with existing skin problems such as

His remark that the joint text agreed between the UK and the EU concerning a soft Brexit for Ireland was more a statement of intent rather than the legal enforceable international agreement between both parties caused consternation in Europe and Ireland.Ireland’s Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney was quick to …
