A new all-terrain wheelchair to help people living with a disability enjoy the blue-flag Redbarn Beach in Youghal has been put into service. The wheelchair is the first one of its kind in East Cork and is the result of a partnership between Cork County Council, the Disability Federation of Ireland, Cork Sports Partnership, The Irish Wheelchair Association and the Quality Hotel & Leisure Centre Redbarn.
The ‘Hippocampe Beach and All Terrain Wheelchair’ helps individuals with disabilities to access the beach and allows users to share experiences with family and friends. The seat is composed of thick and hydrophobic foam that does not absorb water and dries quickly, allowing those who use it to enjoy both the sandy shoreline and the crystal-clear waters of Redbarn.
“Just a short note to thank you for your superb service in both installing the chairlift for my Mother 2 years ago and for removing it now that it is no longer needed. It was a great chairlift and served Mum well during her life, we never had a problem with it, you responded very quickly to our request for installation and from what I remember you worked until about 11pm to fit it and today you arrived on time at 9am and had it taken out in no time, the new owner of the house will be happy that it has been removed. The fact that we could get a reconditioned chairlift with out the hassle of filling out grant forms meant we could have it installed at a great price as soon as it was needed and the fact that we were able to sell it back to you was a pleasant surprise. I have recommended your company to many people and will continue to do so. Thanks again,”

Martin Hennigan set up ITSUITS a year before the pandemic hit. After training as an accountant in CIT, he went into a government job but as he came to 50, he decided a change in career was on the cards. He decided to set up a men’s formalwear shop in Cork. ITSUITS dresses men and boys for all occasions and has a tailor on-site to ensure a bespoke suit. The business has been hit hard by the pandemic and Martin has had to let staff go. He hopes it will pick up again as formal events return. Press Image To Listen
Martin spoke to Pat this morning as part of our ‘Keep It Local’ campaign.

I am writing to you and hope your to give you a good news story about a popular men’s fashion store in Cork.
We had great difficulty in getting a suit for our groomsman that he could wear without needing help getting into it. Our grooms man was in a farming accident a number of years ago. As a result of the accident he lost the use of his legs and has partial use of his arms.
Both my fiancee and I (now my husband) searched for a suit for our groomsman that he could put on without any assistance.. My sister who lives and works in Cork city advised to go to It Suits in Blackpool, Cork city.
We explained the needs of our groomsman. The team said they would have no problem in making any adjustments to the hired suit so he can get himself ready without any assistance. We returned 3 days later for a fitting he (our grooms man) said never got dressed up as fast in a long time for a big occasion.
We were so impressed with the management and staff at It Suits that we hired all the suits for our special day.

This is the best takeaway in Cork! All their food is divine, really high quality, extremely tasty and always deliver on time. They have the best crackers I’ve ever tasted healthy fresh food with lots of flavour. High end takeaway and restaurant. Would recommend to anyone.
Excellent food and lovely service! I’ve been a Soba customer for 3 years, and I’ve never had a bad experience.
The staff are so lovely, the store is so well kept and the food is great! It’s brilliant value and big portion sizes and normal prices. Really wonderful!
I dealt with Joyce and Tracey at the till, and they’re always fantastic! I really recommend!
I’ve had 6 different mains and every time I try a new option I end up having a new favourite. It’s a pity I can’t give more than 5 stars
TO GET THAT TASTE JUST
They can effect both men and women and any age group. They don’t have any social boundaries. So: it is fair to say anyone of us can develop an eating disorder. While many people believe recovery is about getting nutritional intake right and reaching an ideal body weight: this is not all that is required to recover from an eating disorder. There is a need for the person to learn about themselves and to understand how destructive this condition is. Very often families and friends watch as their loved one changes from the person they once knew. Behaviours such as excessive exercise, restricting or bingeing, angry outbursts, mood swings and isolation become a way of life. Sometimes it is this behaviours that alert family and friends that something is going on with their loved one. Remember conditions develop in secrecy, shame and silence.
