Waterford Today weekly horoscopes

Wednesday 21st December - Tuesday 27th December

Aries 21st March-21st April

You’ve been enjoying the festivities and have been getting out and about but with Mars leaving your social 7th house on the 4th January and moving into your 8th house of transformation it’s time to reign things in a little. Start to point your laser focus on where you want to make improvements in your life for the year ahead, especially where your career is concerned.

Taurus 22nd April-21st May

After the festivities are over, checking on your bank balance can be a bit daunting Taurus, but the advice is that you don’t shirk away from it. It’s quite likely there’s been a delay or some technical issue with payments that are usually automated - the sooner it’s noticed, the sooner it can be remedied, and then at least you

Anger is the seventh in a series of articles about more unusual causes of imbalance in the body:

Have you ever seen a person mad with anger? Eyes bulging, face red, fists clenched, head looking like it’s about to explode? When someone is this angry, it’s actually quite easy to see the effect it’s having on their body: high blood pressure, fast but shallow breathing, rapid heart-beat and palpitations, constricted muscles: all things that can and do have a negative impact on our health. In many ways, anger is the opposite of love. Violent anger is often a symptom of pent-up rage, erupting in destructive ways, and it can also be a sign that you need professional help.

Anger is

Simple lifestyle changes can lower risk of cancer

As people begin to think about their New Year’s resolutions, the Irish Cancer Society has urged the public to make simple lifestyle changes in 2017 to significantly lower their risk of cancer.

The Society has reminded people that over four in ten cancers can be prevented by making a number of lifestyle changes. 40% of cancer risk has been attributed to five lifestyle factors—tobacco, diet, overweight/obesity, alcohol and low physical activity*.

Kevin O’Hagan, Cancer Prevention Manager said, “The number one thing people can do to improve their health and lower their risk of cancer is to quit smoking. Three in every ten cancers are caused by smoking and we would urge all smokers to make quitting their number one resolution in 2017.

“Quitting is really difficult but with the right preparation, support and attitude it can

Waterford is as ready for adverse winter weather as is possible – given the constraints of a finite budget, personnel and inter-agency preparation.

That is the considered view of the Chairman of the Council’s influential Strategic Policy Committee on Transport and Infrastructure, Councillor Joe Conway (pictured).

“Our engineers have formulated a ROADS WINTER SERVICE PLAN 2016 – 2017 and this gives systematic priority status to much of the road system in the city and county. 308km have Priority 1 Red Status, 193km have Priority 2 Blue Status, and a further 188km have Priority 3 Green Status.

In essence, this means that close on 700km of Waterford’s most used routes have a plan which cuts in when the forecasts are adverse. This plan is serviced by nine Salt Spreader vehicles, and – in the event of heavy snow – by six snowplough demountables and

The Lafcadio Hearn Japanese Gardens Tramore turned on their winter light display on the 21st of December with music from the High Hopes Choir. The gardens were brought to life with twinkling lights creating a magically walk from the 21st to the 31st December culminating in a New Year’s Eve celebration at 4pm. (New Year’s Eve in Japan). The ceremony began with the Tramore Ladies Choir, followed by the singing of Hallelujah by Sofija Salmanova accompanied by her mother Anna, there was also gong ringing by Keith Guinan and Sonomi Leslie.

safefood welcome the launch by the Department of Health of the updated Food Pyramid and the distancing of the ‘Top Shelf’ of foods and drinks which are all high in fat, salt and sugar. The new pyramid also places a clear emphasis on practical advice for consumers with helpful guidance on what is a serving size to help people eat smaller portions and have a healthier, balanced diet.

Commenting, Dr Cliodhna Foley-Nolan, Director, Human Health and Nutrition with safefood said: “The new Food Pyramid clarifies the changes that we as a nation need to start making to both what we eat and very importantly, how much we eat. The bottom shelf is now made up of fruit and vegetables which shows in no uncertain terms their critical importance to a healthy diet. Distancing the treat foods on the now-separated top shelf

Letters to the Editor


    The Long Goodbye!Political obituaries are usually written after the body has taken it's last breath. However, with Taoiseach Enda Kenny it seems that his political career was just about breathing long before his colleagues had him dead and buried. Although no one, least of all the Taoiseach himself, has come and said it yet, Enda Kenny's premiership ended last week with a truly awful performance in the Dáil where some members of the Opposition were calling for his head while his own party seemed to be won …
