"Why?" she asks. "Because every time I talk to a beautiful woman, my wife appears out of nowhere." The day after a verdict had been entered against his client, the lawyer rushed to the judge's chambers, de- manding that the case be reopened, the lawyer argued: "I have new evidence that makes a huge difference in my client's defense." Judge: "What new evidence could you have?" Lawyer: "My client has an extra €10,000 and I just found out about it!" Seven year old Johnny had finished his summer holidays and gone back to school.

"Wait a minute," she said. "I had Johnny here for two months and I never called you once when he misbehaved." Wanting to earn some money, Cletus decided to hire himself out as a handyman-type and started canvassing a wealthy neighbourhood. He went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any jobs. "Well, you can paint my porch. How much will you charge?" Cletus said, "How about 50 dollars?" The man agreed and told him that the paint and ladders that he might need were in the garage. The man's wife, inside the house, heard the conversation and said to her husband, "Does he realize that the porch goes all the way around the house?" The man replied, "He should. He was standing on the porch." A short time later, Cletus came to the door to collect his money. "You're finished already?" the man asked. "Yes," Cletus answered, "and I had paint left over, so I gave it two coats." Impressed, the man reached in his pocket for the $50. "And by the way," Cletus added, "that's not a Porch, it's a Ferrari." A dietician was once addressing a large audience in Chicago. "The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Vegetables can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the germs in our drinking water. "But there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all of us eat it. Can anyone here tell me what lethal product I'm referring to? You, sir, in the first row, please give us your idea." The man lowered his head and said, "Wedding cake." While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends late one night, the drunk led the way to his bedroom where there was a big brass gong. "What's that big brass gong for?" one of the guests asked. "Why, that's the talking clock" the man replied. "Watch", the man said, giving the gong an ear-shattering pound with a hammer. Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, "F'gosh sakes, you idiot, it's 2am in the morning!"

  3. 3. Tipp Tatler www.tipptatler.ie Pop Up Office in Templemore College of Further Education How does a College combine the teaching of the practical skills with the theoretical knowledge of a course such as Administration? This was the question posed for the teachers of this Level 6 FETAC/QQI award in Templemore College of Further Education (formerly St. Sheelan’s College) last August. Work experience with a local business organisation seemed to be the obvious answer. However, what business is going to allow a student to implement change in some of their systems and figure out what worked well or badly. Local business organisations are very obliging and helpful when taking students for work experience but what was required was a step too far. The solution was to set up an office in the college. The students named this the “Pop Up” office and its function is to provide secretarial and administrative services for staff in Templemore College. What a success in terms of training for the students. They have complete control of this office and the services it provides. They hold meetings with their teachers to discuss progress and any issues that arise. They can implement the theory they are learning in class. Many of the students in this course have worked previously but found themselves unemployed in recent years. They find this approach to teaching has greatly improved their learning experience and their self confidence. They are currently organising a trip for their own class as well as the Sports and Recreation and Tourism with Business and Heritage courses. We will let you know about this trip in future articles.

They met with Neasa Fahy O’ Donnell, Senior Executive Sports Manager who brought them around the facility and answered their questions on the running of such a state of the art complex. On their tour they saw Munster icons such as Paul O’ Connell, Keith Earles and Connor Murray. Students also viewed the set up involved with the upcoming Riverdance show as part of the City of Culture. On leaving the UL Sports Arena they went to the home of Munster Rugby – Thomond Park. The famous grounds notorious for the All Blacks victory; who now have a museum and tours available. Students took part in a tour of the stadium, which involved looking at the typical diet of a rugby player, undertaking a reaction test and attempting throwing a line out. They also got to step onto the field of play even though the weather was not favourable! Students returned to Templemore weary from their excursion but delighted with the knowledge and experiences gained from the day! Looking to Up Skill in the Business Area.

But it was the folks in Heaven Who made me sputter and gasp -- The thieves, the liars, the sinners, the alcoholics and the trash. There stood the kid from second year, Who swiped my lunch money twice. Next to him was my old neighbour, Who never said anything nice. Bob, who I always thought Was rotting away in hell, Was sitting pretty on cloud nine, Looking incredibly well. I nudged Jesus, 'What's the deal? I would love to hear Your take. How'd all these sinners get up here? God must've made a mistake. 'And why is everyone so quiet, So somber - give me a clue.' 'Hush, child,' He said, 'they're all in shock. No one thought they'd be seeing you.' Moynihan & Ryan Commercial Spares Ltd Tel: 0504-20885 Fax: 0504-20884 Email:moynihanryan@hotmail.com The Mall, Thurles Co. Tipperary A Skull in Connemara at The Source, Thurles Decadent Theatre present A Skull in Connemara Written by Martin McDonagh. Directed by Andrew Flynn. Hot on the heels of its very successful run so far in The Gaiety Theatre, A Skull in Connemara comes to Thurles! This dark dark comedy is the middle play from Martin McDonagh’s Leenane Trilogy and it follows the story of Mick Dowd, a local man who each year takes on the task to disinter the bones from graves over seven years laid to rest to make way for new arrivals. This task is much to the discomfort of Mick’s neighbours and rumours are plenty regarding what he does with the bones and skulls once disturbed from their resting place. The play opens on the days leading up to yet another removal. However this year Mick has the task of digging up his own late wife Oona. This sparks further controversy given the fact that his late wife died in very suspicious circumstances. Add into this mix, nosy neighbours, troublesome teenagers and an ambitious Guard and it provides a rollercoaster ride through McDonagh’s black comic world, this play is hysterically funny. You will find yourself laughing at the most inappropriate of jokes and identifying with Mick, the belligerent alcoholic. Decadent Theatre Company has been nominated for the Judges Special Award in the 2013 Irish Times Theatre Awards. "For its enduring and dynamic commitment to creating theatre for touring nationally." Owen MacCarthaigh has also been nominated for Best Set for last year's production of A Skull in Connemara. Well known stars of the Irish stage and screen, Garrett Keogh, Maria McDermottroe, Patrick Ryan and Jarlath Tivnan make up a stellar cast for this gripping and dark tale. It will leave the hairs standing on the back of your neck! Not to be missed. Why not make a night of it? Ring the Source Café and enquire about their special two course pre-theatre meals. The Source Bar opens at 7pm. Friday 07 and Saturday 08 February, 8pm. Tickets €20/18 concession For all bookings ring the Box Office on 0504 90204 or go to www.thesourceartscentre.ie

Roy is now back to full fitness with no pain. I will keep your remedy for the future. Rob Swire, Head Physiotherapist Manchester United Shockwave for Injuries Premier County Physiotherapy is the only clinic in Tipperary and one of only three clinics in Munster offering Shockwave to its patients. Chartered Physiotherapists Therese Ryan, Emma Callanan and Eibhlis Cooney are now fully trained to administer this highly innovative, dynamic and forward thinking treatment. The results of Shockwave are evidence based and groundbreaking in the field of injury rehabilitation. So What Is Shockwave? Shockwave has been defined as a significant breakthrough in pain management. It is a proven technology with clinical studies reliably reporting a success rate above 75% in many chronic pain cases. Shockwave is a non-invasive solution for patients who may have exhausted all other avenues for their problem and offers in some cases a unique option to avoid surgery. Shockwave sends pulses into the body which are generated by compressed air causing acoustic energy to illicit the desired effect within the body. To date, our results clinically are consistent with the published medical literature, with particular success in patients who have had a long-standing problem. Shockwave seems to be kick-starting and accelerating the healing process by breaking the chronic pain cycle shortening standard healing periods and reducing long-term debilitation. These results will be hugely advantageous for injured patients who up until now had no access to shockwave locally.

  8. 8. Tipp Tatler www.tipptatler.ie Access The Power Within & Make 2014 Your Best Year Yet!! Our very own Martina Finnerty was invited as guest speaker to the Mind, Body, Spirit Conference in the RDS, Dublin this autumn. Martina’s message is clear: You can be the Person You Want to Be, You can Create the Change you Need in your Life, and this is true no matter what your life experience so far and no matter how you were reared. Full of facts given in such an interesting and entertaining manner, that the time just flies by, Martina presents proof of the Power Within via Video footage from key scientific lectures, practical demonstrations of Biofeedback and Hypnosis and lots of fun. Over 600 people have attended her courses here in Tipperary and their feedback is fantastic. We decided to ask Martina, why? “I remember one lovely lady from Thurles telling me some months after attending a course, ““Now that I know I can; I do. I am now looking forward to the rest of my life””. In her late 50’s, with her children reared, she had being feeling stuck and deflated. Like so many others, her feedback shows that once we truly understand our mind and realise that there is an inherent gift within each and every one of us, which has the power to help us heal and overcome, then we rise up and begin to experience the change we desire for ourselves. People from all age groups (16 to 80 yrs) attend my courses, each with their own personal needs and their feedback is almost always the same; ““I never knew that was possible”, “No-one ever taught me this””. People are leaving informed and empowered, and this supports real and lasting positive change.” Why not come along and witness first hand as Martina takes you on a journey through what we have never been taught before? THAT WE ALL HAVE WHAT IT TAKES TO REACH OUR MAXIMUM POTENTIAL RIGHT HERE WITHIN US!! Next Course begins on Wed 5th Feb in the Portroe Healing Centre. For more information visit www.thepowerofknowing.ie or call 087 6639188. “Would recommend this course to anyone regardless of what is going on in their life”. Mary Caroll, Thurles. Enlightening, reinforcing, positive, fun, refreshing and a whole lot more. Many thanks to you ”. John P, Clonmel Computing Industry Continues to Offer Great Job Opportunities by Sarah Butler.

These figures augur well for the future and show promising results for those who may be studying , or interested in studying, computing in Ireland at present. The high employability rates go some way towards refuting the claim that there has been a massive brain-drain among science graduates from Ireland in recent times . With the imminent deadline for CAOapplications looming , it may be time to think about choosing to study computing at third level. The high rate of employability in this sector testifies to the increasing demand for computing graduates in the workplace. Seamus Hoyne, Head of Department at the Department of Technology at LIT Thurles noted “ This study should give confidence to students considering applying for a computing programme through the CAO. There are good job prospects and this is confirmed by a recent ForFás report which indicated that there would be over 44,000 positions available within the computing industry between now and 2018. At LIT Thurles campus we offer programmes in Computing, Software Development, Games Design and Development and Computer Services Management. Interested students should come along to our information evenings on the 14th and 15th January to find out more about the programmes.” E-mail: tippschool.admin@lit.ie www.lit.ie/tipperaryTel: 0504-28180 Mari Mina Pharmacy Available at our Pharmacy • Blood Pressure Testing • Drug and Alcohol Testing • “New” Celebrity Slim diet Program (including weekly weigh ins) • “New” Salcura Natural Skin Thereapy (psoriasis, eczema, itchy dry skin) • Special weekly offers ranging from jewellery, perfumes, sets….etc Are you having trouble taking your daily medication?

While we all know some aspects of ourselves in terms of our strengths/weaknesses, we do need help in identifying the more hidden aspects of our personalities. While the same career may suit two different personalities it will be different aspects of that career that suit both types. If you do not know what to do with your life two things can happen, you do nothing about it, keep worrying and giving out or you do something about it and move off the starting point. The right career enhances your life .It is personally fulfilling because it nourishes the most important aspects of your personality. It suits the way you like to do things and reflects who you are. It lets you use your innate strengths in ways that come naturally to you and it does not force you to do things that you do not do well(at least not often). The secret of career satisfaction lies in doing what you enjoy most. Some are lucky to discover this early in life, but a lot of us are caught in a kind of psychological wrestling match, torn between what we think we can do, what others feel we ought to do, and what we think we want to do. In short it is always better to concentrate instead on Who You Are and the rest should fall in to place. The conventional approach to career direction looks at your abilities , your interests, and values .All these are very important but your personality has additional dimensions that need to be recognised. The more aspects of your personality you match to your career search the more satisfied you will be in your chosen career. In other words you should always try and do What You Are.

T.S. st teed Co Guaran n your go Savin tenance IT Main IT Maintenance Virus Removal Offsite Backup Counselling Anxiety (continued from previous issue) By Jim O’Shea Series 4, no. 17. Anxiety. Laughter, family support, valuable workbooks on alleviating anxiety, stress diary. Any lighthearted activity helps to relieve anxiety. Being with witty people or watching comedies is a great help to soothing our anxiety. We know that laughter relaxes the whole body, relieving physical tension and stress, leaving your muscles relaxed for up to 45 minutes. It boosts the immune system, decreasing stress hormones and increasing immune cells and infectionfighting antibodies. Laughter triggers the release of endorphins, the body’s natural feel-good chemicals. Endorphins promote an overall sense of wellbeing. It improves the function of blood vessels and increases blood flow, the very opposite of what stress and anxiety do. But, the severity of the anxiety is an important consideration also. If a person is almost paralysed by anxiety, looking at comedies will not have much of an effect. That type of anxiety must first be eased by other means first. Family help is also important. Therefore, it is vital for family members to understand what anxiety is, and how debilitating it can become. It is difficult to be around anxious family members, but patience and understanding is essential. Telling an anxious person to ‘cop on’ or ‘it’s only in your mind’ increases the anxiety, and makes the sufferer feel misunderstood at the very least. The two workbooks by Martha Davis and Edmund Bourne (Anxiety &Phobia Workbook and The Relaxation and Stress Reduction Workbook (New Harbinger Self-Help Workbook, respectively) also contain some effective techniques to ease anxiety and stress. Davis suggests that we draw up a schedule of recent experience. This exercise will help to identify stressors and see a pattern perhaps. It shows techniques for dealing with them. One exercise looks at stress and anxiety arising from life changing events. You are invited to write these events down. They might include problems at work with your boss, changes in your sleeping, eating problems, personal problems, and recreation habits. Perhaps you are having trouble with your inlaws, sexual difficulties, illness or injury, loss, change in residence, marriage, divorce, separation, retirement, change in working hours, and so on. You compile your own sources of anxiety and you can compile a score that shows just how stressful your life is. Following this, you can use the information you have written to counteract the possible anxiety and stress that may arise. For example, remind yourself of the amount of change you have experience in the last year. Think about how it has affected you, and how you can adjust. Do all of this slowly and carefully, and also look at your successes. Be empathic to yourself, and acknowledge what you can change and what you cannot. Next draw up a list of how you cope with anxiety and stress. Some of these may be beneficial and others destructive. So you might use the following coping strategies - getting support of friends (beneficial), overeating (destructive), drinking too much (destructive), smoking (destructive), withdrawing (destructive), getting a hobby (beneficial), having a healthy diet (beneficial), and so on. By doing this you will see whether your coping strategies are positive or damaging, and you will be able to eliminate the damaging ones, and find other helpful ones. A stress/anxiety awareness diary is a very good idea. You have five headings for this record, and an entry might be as follows Day Monday Date 15th September Time 9.30 Stressful event Customer Rude Symptom anger/stomach churning. This will show a pattern of behaviour and reactions to stressful events. It will also show you where you store it in your body. Your awareness will increase and you will be able to release the anxiety through relaxation exercises, such as walking, swimming, listening to soft music. Self- hypnosis seems to be an effective way to ease anxiety. I suppose that we may be frightened of hypnosis because it seems that we have no control. I would have no fear of self-hypnosis as explained by Martha Davis. She outlines how you might master and practise it on pages 83 to 97. It does not take long to master it.
