A local hairdressing salon in Falcarragh has been forced to take alternative measures during another water outage.Roisin Gallagher and her team at Roisin’s Beauty Bar faced another day of bookings without a water supply this Friday morning.But, with over twenty outages so far this year, Roisin says she has no other option but to keep the doors open. Instead of taps, she keeps water stored and heats it in a kettle for hair rinses. Then she has to pour the water over her customers’ hair with a watering can.“The water has been out nearly every week this summer. The watering can looks really unprofessional but we just can’t afford to close anymore,” Roisin told Donegal Daily.“We were fully booked today and we are busy with weddings tomorrow. I’m afraid the water will be off again then, because it sometimes stays off two days in a row. “The water came back on today after 2pm. But when it does come back the water is pure black for 20 minutes after.“Before this we had to turn people away when the water was off and close the salon.“Now we’ve been buying loads of water, filling kettles and warming it up. We get the temperature right before we can pour it at the sinks,” she said.Homes and businesses in Falcarragh and surrounding areas have been struggling with regular water outages this year.Irish Water has said the issue is caused by two sections of water pipes that are prone to frequent bursts which need replacing. The existing pipework is asbestos concrete, a common pipe material used in the 1980s which bursts frequently as the pipes reach the end of their life cycle.The water supply was disrupted this Friday morning due to essential works by Irish Water. Roisin says that the local businesses now have a text alert to notify when the water will be off, but they come too late for her salon, which opens at 9am. Her staff have arrived by this time. Two hairdressers and a beautician are employed at Roisin’s Beauty Bar.Roisin’s Beauty Bar opened in March 2018Roisin says her customers have been mostly understanding about the team’s unusual measures.“We can’t even make tea or coffee for the customers. The locals don’t have their own water so they come to us, they are understanding. But a few times we have had holidaymakers who are not happy with how we have to do things. We just try and make them understand that it’s not our fault,” Roisin said.Irish Water currently plans to commence the construction of water mains improvements in Falcarragh this Autumn. After a busy summer, Roisin says every day is a struggle until a solution is found: “We are really struggling at the moment. It’s really hard to keep going, the summer has been so hard. We’ve been so busy and this is just another problem on top of it all.”Watch: Hairdressers forced to use watering cans during Falcarragh water outage was last modified: August 1st, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:FalcarraghIrish Waterroisin gallagherwater
Treatment with helminths (roundworms), once considered gross, is actually proving effective.If you can get over the “ick factor” of putting worms in your body, you might take a new look at what many patients are finding: helminths (roundworms) can cure some diseases other treatments can’t. Here’s the bottom line of an article from Medical Xpress:“The risk-benefit ratio is so skewed to the benefit side,” O’Hara said. “Helminths are much safer than any medication I’ve ever put any child on, or any adult. I really do think that this is something more and more physicians need to consider.”Helminth therapy (the preferred term, since “worms” grosses people out) has proven effective for severe food allergies and inflammatory bowel disease. It’s given some patients a new life.Of scientific interest is whether helminths should be classed as parasites. That link is “controversial” the article says, because while some truly do cause harm, there are other helminth species that cause no harm and bring only benefits. What’s the difference in living with other internal organisms, like gut bacteria, that help us digest our food?For creationists, this relatively recent change of opinion may be instructive about original ecology. Instead of classing organisms into simplistic good-and-bad categories, maybe we should take a look at some things as potentially good under the right circumstances. Certainly the Genesis 3 curse caused pain and suffering in many cases, but we shouldn’t assume that some organisms we have been conditioned to consider bad are in fact bad. Another case is maggots, now being used for cleaning wounds. That’s something Hugh Glass knew about and benefited from (to be shown in the upcoming movie, The Revenant, opening Christmas 2015). Don’t rush to get bit by a rattlesnake or stung by a scorpion, but keep an open mind about yucky things in nature. Grasshoppers are good sources of protein, for instance. Each case needs its own evidence. (Visited 37 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0
