        "body": "A mass brawl between Armagh and Galway footballers in Croke Park has been described as \"disturbing\" and \"concerning\" by the Taoiseach.\n\nTaoiseach Micheál Martin said what had happened at the end of normal time in the All-Ireland quarter final in Dublin on Sunday was \"shocking\" and insisted there is \"no room for that in any sport\".\n\nSports minister Catherine Martin branded an alleged eye-gouging incident \"absolutely appalling\" and said any disciplinary action taken by the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) must \"send a clear signal\" that such violence will not be tolerated.\n\nA number of players and members of both senior county panels were involved in the outbreak of violence and footage showed a member of the Armagh panel appearing to gouge the eyes of Galway's Damien Comer.\n\nAsked on Monday about the incident, Mr Martin told reporters: \"I think it was a shocking scene. It was a great game of football and awful that it was marred by what transpired at the end of the game.\n\n\"And I think the Gaelic Athletic Association obviously will deal with that and will have to deal with that through its procedures and processes, but there is no room for that in any sport, and particularly when young people are watching their heroes on the football or hurling or soccer fields, they don't need to see this type of behaviour.\n\n\"And it was quite, quite disturbing to see and quite concerning.\"\n\nMs Martin said the \"edge of the seat\" game should have been remembered as the match of the year, but instead had been overshadowed by the \"appalling scenes\".\n\nShe said footballers need to remember they are role models for young people.\n\nShe added: \"There is no place for violence in sport and I would hope that whatever disciplinary procedures take place that it will send a clear signal that that sort of behaviour is not to be repeated.\"\n\nOf the alleged eye-gouging, she said: \"It's absolutely appalling stuff and there are young families go to these games. It's not just about young children who grow up to participate in the sports but actually it's a family event.\n\n\"I know of a five-year old who was at that match yesterday, first time experience. They should have come home remembering what an amazing, as I said edge of the seat stuff, it was. Instead they see sports players behaving like that and it's despicable.\"\n\nThe game went to extra time and the Orchard county eventually lost a penalty shoot-out, meaning Galway will meet Derry in the All-Ireland semi-final.",

        "title": "Ireland's richest person Pallonji Mistry dies at 93",
        "body": "A company spokesperson confirmed the death of the Indian tycoon after social media posts on the news spread.\n\nMistry and his family control the Shapoorji Pallonji Group, which started more than 150 years ago and today employs more than 50,000 people in over 50 countries, according to its website. Its landmark projects include the Reserve Bank of India and the Oberoi Hotel in Mumbai and the blue-and-gold Al Alam palace for the Sultan of Oman.\n\nMistry accumulated a net worth of almost $29bn (€27.4bn), according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, making him one of the richest men in India and in Europe. He surrendered his Indian nationality and became an Irish citizen in 2003 through his long marriage to Dublin-born Patsy Perin Dubash.\n\nMost of the family wealth, however, derived from being the largest minority shareholder -- 18.5% as of early 2022 -- in Mumbai-based Tata Sons Pvt., the main investment holding company for India's largest conglomerate.\n\nThat stake proved to be a double-edged sword for the media-shy Mistry when the shock ouster of his son Cyrus as Tata Sons chairman in 2016 triggered a very public, years-long courtroom and boardroom battle between two of India's most-storied corporate clans.\n\nThe country's top court ruled in 2021 that Cyrus's ouster was legal and also upheld Tata Sons's rules on minority shareholder rights, which made it difficult to sell shares without board approval. That meant the stake, worth almost $30 billion in early 2022, was basically illiquid.\n\nEarly Partners\n\nThe family business was founded in 1865, when Pallonji Mistry's grandfather started a construction business with an Englishman. The initial project was the first reservoir in Mumbai, then known as Bombay. The company began doing business with the Tata family in the 1920s; both families are Zoroastrians whose ancestors fled Persia to India to escape religious persecution.\n\nMistry was born on June 1, 1929, in Mumbai. His father, Shapoorji Mistry, worked for the family company, which the son joined in 1947.\n\nHe led the company's expansion into the Middle East, including Abu Dhabi, Qatar and Dubai, in 1970. It won a contract to build the Sultan of Oman's palace in 1971 and many ministerial buildings there.\n\nHis management style and desire to expand globally was in sharp contrast to that of his father, who traveled abroad just twice to help some family members seek medical treatment, according to the 2007 book \"Moguls of Real Estate,\" by Manoj Namburu.\n\nUnlike his father, who exercised personal control over the smallest detail and had his engineers apprise him every day on projects, Mistry delegated authority and only retained supervisory and planning powers.\n\nTo protect the company's reputation, Mistry was often willing to complete a construction project even at a loss, according to \"Moguls of Real Estate,\" which cited Zafar Iqbal, a former chief executive officer of SP Group.\n\nUnder his watch, the business developed into a conglomerate that included real estate, water, energy and financial services. Its stake in Forbes & Company Ltd. provided access to textile, engineering, home appliance and shipping businesses, while it held a majority stake in Afcons Infrastructure Ltd., which built projects in India.\n\nTough Times\n\nTo Indians, besides the Oberoi Hotel and RBI's building in the nation's financial hub, the company is also known for building the Mumbai World Trade Centre in 1970 and the Imperial, two 60-story residential towers, in the city in 2010. It also built an 80-acre (32-hectare) information-technology park called Ozone, in the western Indian city of Pune. That was an offshoot of a 110-acre stud farm Mistry bought in the 1980s, which went on to breed Indian Derby winning stallions, according to Namburu's book.\n\nThe family's stake in Tata Sons increased as the company built car factories and steel mills for the group. His father also bought stakes from Tata family members over the years. Meanwhile, the Tata portfolio expanded to more than 100 companies, including brand names such as Jaguar, Land Rover, Tetley Tea and Corus Steel.\n\nIndia's news outlets called Mistry \"the Phantom of Bombay House,\" the Tata group's head office, because he was rarely seen there and because of his quiet demeanor and avoidance of the media. The family is generally secretive and even such details as when he and his wife married are not publicly known.\n\nMistry took a backseat after Shapoor, his eldest son, took over as chairman of SP Group companies in 2004.\n\nBoardroom Coup\n\nCyrus became the Tata Sons chairman in 2012, succeeding Ratan Tata. But he was removed four years later in a boardroom coup led by Tata Trusts, which owned 66% of Tata Sons and was controlled by Ratan Tata. The dispute snowballed with allegations of mismanagement and suppression of minority shareholder rights. The 2021 court ruling in Tata's favor left burnt bridges between the two families, which had been partners for 70 years.\n\nAfter his Tata stint, Cyrus went on to set up a venture capital firm, Mistry Ventures LLP.\n\nDespite a diversified set of businesses, the SP Group was forced to look at asset sales as it faced a cash crunch, burgeoning debt and even a payment default in 2020. The Covid-19 pandemic hit its core real estate operations. In October 2021 a unit of Reliance Industries Ltd. agreed to acquire 40% of Mistry's Sterling & Wilson Solar Ltd.\n\nIn addition to his two sons Mistry had two daughters, Laila and Aloo. The latter married Noel Tata, the half-brother of Ratan Tata, who was named chairman emeritus of Tata Sons.",

        "title": "Rockmount's Jason Sexton on his greatest season marked by four trophies",
        "body": "FOUR years, four major trophies for Rockmount's Jason Sexton.\n\nThe father of three from Deerpark joined Rockmount four years ago having previously played with Everton, Casement, Greenwood and Wilton United.\n\nHaving picked up plenty of silverware during that time, he's quick to say this season has been the best season to date for him.\n\n\"This season is by far the best I have had to date, winning the treble was brilliant but to win the league by so many points and go undefeated in it is unreal,\" said Sexton.\n\n\"As a defender not losing a league game I take great pride in that and to win the Intermediate Cup in the same year is a great achievement because everyone wants to win the Intermediate Cup but it doesn't always work out for people and not many teams can win them both in the same year so I think it's a great achievement.\"\n\nFAI Intermediate Cup, Munster Senior League and O'Connell Cup winners this season reflects the work being done at the club and for Sexton, hard work and competition within the squad are what brought so much success.\n\nAt Rockmount they are all so hard working and good to be around, winning so many games this season had made all the training and long evenings away from family all the better.\n\n\"Our squad had a great mix between young and old. A mixture of lads who still think they're young coupled with five internationals, ex-League of Ireland players and U19s, is incredible to have in one team, to be honest. There is a great unity within the squad and when you throw in a fantastic management of Eddie, Monty, Clarkey, Ethan and Sean, it has been the perfect blend for success.\"\n\nEvery team's aim at the beginning of the season is to win something but they kept breaking things down taking it a game at a time.\n\n\"We set out to start the league well and it just seemed to steamroll after that and winning is a good habit to get into as well I think after we won the quarter-final of the Intermediate Cup we really started to believe that we could really kick on and win trophies because we were so far ahead in the league.\n\n\"We could have taken the foot off the pedal but that just isn't in our team. The only disappointment\n\nthis year was the defeat in the Keane Cup final on penalties but I suppose settling for the treble isn't a bad season.\"\n\nPlaying the majority of the games this season, bar three, Sexton was happy with his own performance but quick to praise his teammates, especially the defenders alongside him.\n\n\"I was very happy with the game time I got because the standard of the squad is so good and if you're not performing then someone is there to replace you and everyone knows this and I think it's the reason we won so much because you need a squad not just the starting 11.\n\n\"Our backline has been phenomenal this year if I may say so myself.\n\nWe only conceded eight league goals all season in 17 games and when a defence is that tight we are always going to have a chance of winning with the quality we have up front but our defence have a great understanding of each other.\n\n\"Ken Hoey at right-back won every trophy there is, Adam Crowley next to me is young but some player and is on the Irish amateur squad for that reason, Cian Murphy at left-back played in the League of Ireland so that speaks for itself and of coarse Brendan O'Connell behind us, an Irish keeper. He's probably the best keeper I have played with and great in the dressing room as well.\n\n\"Also when James O'Connell or Jack Waters come into the team it doesn't weaken our defence one bit.\"\n\nHECTIC\n\nHaving the league won and with the FAI intermediate cup solely to focus on, Sexton said it gave the lads the belief that they could win more trophies. On the morning of the final, it was a hectic day for Sexton as his niece was making her communion, a huge day for Sexton and his family so to have the final in Turner's Cross and to win it, made it all the more special.\n\n\"It was my niece Leah's communion which is good as my child and of course, I had to take the limelight with the cup final but in fairness, Leah goes to a lot of my matches with my dad and my daughter Lily so she didn't mind too much. Well that's what I keep telling myself,\" laughs Sexton.\n\nIt was a hectic day between my wife getting the kids ready and me cooking pasta at 9 o'clock in the morning to bring to the church to eat.\n\n\"Not the best way to prepare for a cup final but it is what it is and all that goes with a communion day.\n\n\"The church was at 12 in Ballyphehane so could only stay for 20 mins of that and then had to head to Turner's Cross to meet up with the lads but all the family followed on to watch me and it was great to win it.\"\n\nSexton also scored in his side's 2-1 win over College Corinthians in the O'Connell cup to finish off a remarkable year and finish with a hat trick of trophies and now he takes a well-deserved break before he begins a new season in the hope of retaining and adding more silverware for the club.",

        "title": "Government announces €363 million package to tackle domestic violence",
        "body": "The Government has revealed a €363m five-year strategy which will focus on education from an early age on issues such as consent, healthy sexual relationships, and domestic violence, to be covered in an age-appropriate manner from primary school through to third level.\n\nThe maximum sentence for assault is also set to be doubled as part of measures contained in a zero-tolerance strategy to tackle domestic, sexual, and gender-based violence.\n\nAs the Irish Examiner reports, new training for healthcare and other frontline workers is to be developed by the HSE to identify domestic violence and refer victims to appropriate support services.\n\nThe strategy, due to be published by Taoiseach Micheál Martin and Justice Minister Helen McEntee on Tuesday, includes funding to double the number of domestic violence refuge spaces from 141 to at least 280 in the next five years, meaning places will be available in every county for the first time.\n\nIt is expected at least 100 of these refuge spaces will be rolled out by the end of 2023.\n\nIreland is currently providing less than 30 per cent of the places recommended under the Istanbul Convention and nine counties currently do not have dedicated domestic violence refuges.\n\n\"It is my commitment that anyone who needs a space or a bed or accommodation or safe refuge will get that,\" Ms McEntee has said.\n\nThe plan is built on four pillars -- protection, prevention, prosecution, and policy co-ordination -- with each aspect getting equal emphasis.\n\nA significant element of the strategy involves the reform of criminal laws.\n\nAs part of this, the maximum sentence for assault causing harm -- one of the most common offences in domestic abuse cases -- will increase from five years to 10 years.\n\nMs McEntee hopes to bring this legislation to Cabinet in the coming weeks and to have it enacted by the end of the year.\n\nIt is understood she is conscious that current maximum sentences mean that a person convicted of assault causing harm often only serves two years when other mitigating factors are considered by a judge.\n\nThe Government also wants to place an emphasis on prevention, with community supports and in-prison rehabilitation being further developed.\n\nThe strategy, which was delayed after further consultation was sought following the death of Offaly schoolteacher Ashling Murphy, will cover the next five years.\n\nMeanwhile, the chief executive officer of Women's Aid, Sarah Benson has said she applauds the ambition of the Minister for Justice Helen McEntee in the Zero Tolerance strategy to tackle domestic, sexual and gender-based violence.\n\nMs Benson told RTÉ radio's Morning Ireland that she welcomed the objective of setting up \"something centralised\" which would incorporate other government departments.\n\nThe new strategy would require not just a whole of Government response, but a whole of society approach, she said. The level of ambition in this strategy exceeds anything that has gone before, she added.\n\nMs Benson said she commended the Minister for the whole of Government approach which would not let other departments off the hook.\n\nThe approach in the future would be collaborative which was urgently needed.",

        "title": "Cork city alive with theatre, dance, music and art... just magical!",
        "body": "I barely scratched the surface of all the cultural offerings from the Cork Midsummer Festival which concluded at the weekend but what joy I got from dipping my toe back into theatre, dance, music and art properly.\n\nThe Play\n\nI got married at Triskel Christchurch and have an adorable picture of my cousin giving me a congratulatory squeeze afterwards under the columned portico. Which is why it feels odd to be standing next to the same cousin almost ten years later looking at the facade of Triskel witnessing the execution of two British soldiers. In the theatre world they'd say Triskel Christchurch has been \"recontextualised\" for me but it all feels a bit incongruous. The Hymac mini-digger in the corner and the elevated narrator reading aloud all add to the feeling of unease.\n\nI suspect that's the feeling Corcadorca were going for with their adaptation of Frank O'Connor's 1931 short story 'Guests of the Nation' for the Midsummer Festival. It is right and proper to feel uncomfortable watching a story of two Irish soldiers charged with the job of killing two British soldiers during the War of Independence. The Irish lads had become friendly with the British soldiers they were keeping as hostages but when the order comes through to execute them in retaliation for the deaths of Irish soldiers the senseless waste of war is revealed.\n\nWe are in the midst of commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Civil War, a brutally cruel period of our history and are hearing the daily news from Ukraine of yet more pointless deaths so the emotion of the story lands heavily. However in places the strong performances and sharp script are unnecessarily heightened by quirky staging and an ominous score.\n\nCorcadorca traditionally brings audiences to unusual spaces and locations but spreading Guests of the Nation between the Opera House for the first act and Triskel for the second and third acts felt superfluous. Maybe there was a need to spread the love, or the budget, between two theatres but the whole production could have been housed in Triskel. Walking through the stage door and the offices of the Cork Opera House and traipsing across the city were unmotivated. I heard one member of the audience complain about her knees!\n\nDodgy joints aside, it was a wonderful night with vibrant performances, but I couldn't help wondering what the people in the queue for Rearden's made of the gunshots coming from South Main Street!\n\nThe Parade\n\nA decidedly light hearted and much more accessible spectacle happened the following night on Oliver Plunkett Street for the inaugural, and surely soon to be annual, Midsummer Parade organised by Cork Community Artlink and featuring the participation of community groups, bands, performers and dancers from all over the city.\n\nOliver Plunkett Street witnesses plenty of daytime and night time antics but a propelled, mechanised, gigantic metallic elephant must be a first. It was an up close parade, no strained necks for short people and the floats were within touching distance.\n\nFresh from shaking their samba beats with President Michael D.Higgins at the Áras, the Cork City Samba Band led the parade and set the tone and the rhythm for a Afro-Caribbean dance group.\n\nThere were unicycling and stilt walking pirates from the Cork Circus Factory, a troupe of mediaeval princesses from the Joan Denise Moriarty Dance School, Bollywood vibes and so much more. Masses of creativity, talent and imagination were poured into the masks, makeup and costumes.\n\nIt was magical. My children were agog and barely spoke for the entirety of the procession.\n\nI'm not really sure how long the whole parade lasted because I was having so much fun watching but when the last float passed and the crowd spontaneously applauded a woman turned to me and said \"what a perfect parade\".\n\nSeeing Cork Artlink's artistic director William Frode de la Foret stalk the parade in painted face and white sunglasses like a discreet Kubrick ringmaster I whispered a silent thank you to him and the incredible team at Cork Artlink and their network of allies and volunteers for continuing to bring art and culture onto the streets of Cork and creating smiles in the minds of audiences for almost 30 years. See you on Oliver Plunkett Street on the 21st of June 2023!\n\nThe World\n\nI'm not a regular mass goer at St. Colman's Cathedral in Cobh, in fact I'm not even sure if I've ever been inside the doors of the magnificent building but I suspect streams of people visiting on an ordinary Wednesday in June is an unusual sight. These were not American tourists disgorged from a cruise ship onto the quays of Cobh, these were Cork people queuing up to get a closer look at our world.\n\nIt was hard to escape imagery of the art installation Gaia in the past few weeks. Not that you'd want to. A bride walking down the aisle backlit by the 7m wide rotating sculpture of Earth was possibly the most memorable of all the snaps that appeared in print and social media.\n\nIt seems lots of us are mesmerised by seeing our planetary home before our very eyes, even a version 1.8 million times smaller than the real deal.\n\nThere was something very moving about witnessing that level of interest and devotion to Mother Earth. If we could apply it beyond the confines of a cathedral the world would be a better place.",

        "title": "Tips as CAO 'Change of Mind' deadline looms",
        "body": "JUNE is a busy and stressful month for Leaving Cert students with exams taking priority. It is also coming up to the CAO Change of Mind deadline, at 5pm on July 1. This means that time and attention needs to be given to ensuring that all details of the CAO application are correct, particularly the order of course choices.\n\nThis Change of Mind deadline is final and it won't be possible to make any amendments after 5pm on July 1st.\n\nIn May, applicants received a 'Statement of Application Email' which asked that all personal and educational details, including examination number and language exemption information be checked and verified. This is to ensure that there are no problems at CAO Offer stage.\n\nIt is a good idea to double check all that information again now, and of course to finalise course choices.\n\nTo use the Change of Mind facility applicants, simply log on to http://www.cao.ie/ , click on 'My Application' and log in with the correct CAO number, date of birth and account password.\n\nIt is possible to add in, take out and amend course choices with the exception of 'Restricted' courses which can't be added in at this stage. There are exceptions to this in that it may be permitted to introduce a restricted course which shares the exact same assessment procedures with a course an applicant had applied for by 1st February at 5pm - applicants should consult with the relevant Higher Education Institution (HEI) before introducing such a course.\n\nChange of Mind Checklist\n\nAs well as checking that all details on the CAO account are correct ahead of the deadline, it is important that students consider the following\n\n· Include courses in both categories, Level 8 (Honours Degrees) & Level 7/6 (Ordinary Degrees/Higher Certificates). This gives the best chance of getting 2 offers when the Round 1 Offers come out. Applicants are offered the top choice on their list for which they qualify and can choose to accept one. The majority of level 6 and 7 courses have progression routes onto level 8 programmes.\n\n· Fill in as many of the 20 choices as possible. Applicants can fill up 10 choices on both lists, giving 20 possible options for college in the new academic year and 20 chances of getting a college place.\n\n· Check the Alert Lists on www.cao.ie.\n\nSome very interesting new courses have been added in several colleges since the CAO Handbook was published last September.\n\n· Take out courses which are no longer of interest.\n\n· Research the detail of every course that is to be including on the final CAO course list, taking particular note of entry requirements and modules. This gives the best chance of choosing courses which suit the interests, learning style, and ability of the student, minimising the chance of making the wrong choice.\n\n· List the courses in ORDER OF PREFERENCE. This is the golden rule of CAO. No one knows what the points will be for 2022 until the day the Round 1 offers come out and equally exams results won't be known until they are issued. My advice is don't try to second guess either of them and before 5pm on July 1st make sure that all course choices are list in ORDER OF PREFERENCE! This means listing the favourite course first, second favourite next and so on down to number 10.\n\n· It is always a good idea for students to include courses that they are well capable of getting - 'banker courses'. (It goes without saying they also need to like the course content). While students do want to include 'dream courses', it is important and sensible to have plenty options that are very achievable.\n\nExplore all options outside of CAO\n\nThere are many more options open to students on leaving school, some of which are now linked on the CAO website on https://www.cao.ie/?page=options\n\nThese options, which don't share the July 1st deadline, are not based on Leaving Cert points and provide a huge variety of education and training opportunities in multiple areas and sectors. Many now also provide progression routes onto higher levels of qualifications on completion.\n\nCheck out the options at Post-Leaving Cert (PLC) level in Colleges of Further Education. With almost 2,000 courses available nationwide there is something for everyone.

        "body": "THE management and staff of Hanley were delighted to come together recently at the Clayton Cork city hotel to enjoy a fun night out and to celebrate 30 years in business this year.\n\nSpeaking about the celebrations, Aidan O'Mahony, MD, said: \"From our set up in 1992, where we entered the market and became the first Irish company to achieve ISO 9001 accreditation for the provision of calibration services to where we are today, it has been an amazing journey.\n\n\"As a key supplier today of calibration, validation and technical resources to the Pharma, Bio pharma and Medical device Lifescience sectors, we are extremely proud of all our employees for making Hanley into the energetic, thriving and successful company it is today.\n\n\"A major part of this success has been due to our engagement over many years with the Solas based apprenticeship programme, which cannot be under estimated and has provided some brilliant people, often going on to become inspirational leaders within our company. Also critical to our success has been our engagement and relationship with many of the colleges where we have been lucky enough to attract brilliant graduates, who again have helped our company grow.\n\n\"We currently have more than 200 people which is increasing and represents a doubling of employees over the last few years. Our goal is to continue this growth and to provide more opportunities and career progression for our current and future employees.\n\n\"To drive this growth, we have started a program of diversification, i.e. in providing new technical job roles, engaging with new customers and gaining a foothold in new territories outside of Ireland.\n\n\"To enable and continue this momentum, we are currently hiring for many roles and always looking for new talent, so do please visit our website/call us anytime to speak with our Talent Acquisition team to see what we can offer you. ( www.hanleycalibration.com) \"Finally, a big thanks to all our fantastic employees who have made all of this happen and to whom we are indebted and truly grateful,\" concluded Mr O'Mahony.",

        "title": "'Families with two mums are worth writing about'",
        "body": "IDENTIFYING with a character in a book can really help children enjoy a story. But when most children's family-centred books include a mum and dad, it can mean children from LGBTQ+ families are left out.\n\nAuthor Jodie Lancet-Grant is hoping to help change that, through her children's picture books which feature two mums or two dads. Her debut book The Pirate Mums was the first-ever story to feature a family with two mums to be read on CBeebies Bedtime Stories, and now her new book The Marvellous Doctors for Magical Creatures, which includes a family with two dads, has been published in time for June's Pride Month.\n\nLancet-Grant, who has twin daughters with her wife Samantha, explains that she wrote the books: \"To show children with two mums or two dads that families like theirs are worth writing about, show kids who might grow up queer that they can have their own family if they want one, and show everyone that families come in all shapes and sizes.\"\n\nLancet-Grant's day job is in book publishing, and she explains she started writing after unsuccessfully searching for books to read to her children about families just like their own.\n\n\"A few years ago our daughters, who are now seven, started to realise our family, which has got two mums, was a little bit different to other people's families.\n\n\"I'm a massive books person, so the first thing I thought was I'd seek out some stories that show families like ours.\n\n\"But what I found, to my real surprise and disappointment, was there was so little out there.\"\n\nThe books she did find, like Heather Has Two Mummies, were written many years ago and were \"quite old-fashioned\", she says. \"There wasn't anything that really showed the vibrant, fun, colourful children's publishing that we see today.\n\n\"There were a couple of books about how all families are different, and I think there's a real case for those books, but what I was really after was just some fun, colourful, interesting stories where the family happened to be one with two mums, or two dads. But there was nothing like that.\n\n\"I felt really sad about it, because I felt, as a parent, that I'd been excluded from this world of children's stories.\"\n\nHer wife suggested she remedy the situation by writing a book herself - and that's just what she did.\n\nA few years later, The Pirate Mums was published.\n\n\"My daughters love the books - they don't know it's an unusual thing to have a mum that writes books, so they're quite blase, but they're proud of it,\" she says happily.\n\n\"Because we've actively sought out the books that do exist that have two mums or two dads in them, they don't see how my book is quite unusual.\"\n\nBut while Lancet-Grant originally set out to write books for children from families like her own, she stresses that it's just as important for other children to read them.\n\n\"I did initially write the books for my children and children like them, but what's become super-clear to me over the last year is just how important these books are - maybe even more important - for kids with straight parents, because we want to teach our kids about love and acceptance.\n\n\"I think a loving, everyday gay relationship presented in the same way that kids see straight ones - by that I mean the mums and dads they see in the storybooks and on kids' TV all the time - can have a massive effect on normalising these relationships.\n\n\"Because we learn our values young, it's such a good time to be able to get these messages to children, but all wrapped up in a story - the story always has to come first.\"\n\nAnd Lancet-Grant did not want the two mums or dads to be the focus of her tales, saying: \"I really set out to make the two mums or two dads a bit more incidental - there are lots of books that show families come in all shapes and sizes, and there's something 'othering' about those books - by the very dint of your family being in one of them, it shows you're different from the norm.\n\n\"That's totally fine, but I didn't want that to be the case - I wanted to write books that had a fantastic story and would take any child along for the ride, and that had two mums or two dads in them.\"\n\nShe admits that in The Pirate Mums the two mums part isn't completely incidental, as the book starts with the line 'Billy's family is not what you'd call ordinary'.\n\nBut Lancet-Grant explains: \"The book is playing with the adult reader, be that a parent or a teacher, because an adult will probably automatically think that the reason Billy's family isn't ordinary is because he's got two mums.\n\n\"But as the story unfolds, we see that actually it's because his parents are pirates, and that's the thing that's unusual about them.\n\n\"It's not really about the fact that he's got two mums at all. You could tell the exact same story with a mum and a dad.\"\n\nThe Marvellous Doctors for Magical Creatures is published by Oxford University Press.",

        "body": "FOR the dedicated members of the 31st Lissarda Scouts, the onset of Covid-19 had a major impact on its many activities.\n\nLike many troops around the country, the Lissarda one was effectively shut for months, and many of the older scouts have moved on, but now things are finally returning to normal, secretary and scout leader Derry Casey can look ahead.\n\n\"After the pandemic, a lot of scouts didn't come back,\" he said, \"people had formed new habits, had moved on to other things, and some of the older ones missed out, so it was a really shame.\n\n\"The scouts was really the last thing to come back after all the lockdowns, in the meantime a lot of kids had been playing sports or taking up new interests and things like that so it left us in a difficult position.\"\n\nAfter the trials of Covid, Derry says the children and scout leaders in Lissarda are looking forward to a busy summer of adventure.\n\n\"The scouts is very inclusive,\" said Derry, \"all are welcome and everybody is valued. The great thing about it is as the kids progress through the ranks, they pass on their knowledge and experience to the younger ones.\n\n\"It's a great way to build up their confidence and you can see them becoming more and more responsible. It's not the scout leaders that do that - it's the kids themselves, which is great.\"\n\nDerry says that the wide range of activities the scouts take part in means everybody can play their part.\n\n\"Some kids don't like sports or don't want to be involved for whatever reason, and we have quite a few like that here in the scouts, but here they can be part of a team and enjoy the fun and camaraderie without the pressure that sometimes comes with it. We have lots of sporty kids too of course, but the point is everyone is welcome.\"\n\nDerry said the variety of activities means there is always a new challenge for the youngsters.\n\n\"We do all sorts of things, from hiking and hill climbing to camping out and learning to build shelters, cooking in the open, organised visits, there is always something going on.\"\n\nThe scouts are organised into three age groups: the beavers aged six to eight, the cubs aged nine to 11 and the scouts aged 12 to 15, as well as a dedicated group of scout leaders. Each group takes part in various activities suited to their age, as well as wider group activities suitable for all.\n\nSince getting back together, the Lissarda scouts have taken part in several mountain hikes in the Kerry mountains and they plan to tackle Ireland's highest peak, Carrauntoohil, later this summer.\n\n\"We've done pioneering, shelter building, we've been camping at Brinny, and we've been to Torc Mountain and Mangerton Mountain,\" said Derry.\n\nAnother highlight was a visit to the Naval Service headquarters at Haulbowline Island in Cork Harbour.\n\n\"That was a great trip,\" said Derry. \"The whole troop went and we had a wonderful day down there. We were treated like VIPs and got a tour of the the LÉ Samuel Beckett.\n\n\"We were also guests of honour to watch the navel personnel practice their parade drill, the kids loved it.\"\n\nThe aim of Scouting Ireland is to enable young people to \"build the skills they need to maximise life's opportunities\" and to encourage the social, physical, intellectual, character, emotional, and spiritual development aspects (SPICES) of young people \"so that they may achieve their full potential and as responsible citizens, to improve society.\"\n\nUp to 6% of young people in Ireland between the ages of six and 18 are thought to be involved in scouting.\n\nAfter the forced restrictions of the pandemic, Lissarda Scouts are now actively looking to recruit members and new adult scout leaders.\n\n\"It's often the case that one or two of the parents will want to help out as leaders,\" said Derry, \"that's always very welcome.\n\n\"We are keen also to welcome new beavers, cubs and scouts from the general Lee Valley area.\"\n\nThe 31st Lissarda beavers and cubs meet up on Tuesday nights in Crookstown Hall and scouts meet up on Friday nights. There are also activities and outings on many weekends during the year. Their catchment area includes Kilmurry, Clougduv, Aherla, Newcestown, Crookstown, Canovee and surrounding areas.",
