THORNTONS Recycling has been requested to submit additional information for their plans for the change of use Unit S3A and Unit 2 of S3B at Parkwest Business Park, for a materials recycling facility and an internal extension of a garage facility respectively. The waste management company’s head office is based at Unit S3B of the business park, and their application for the change of use was submitted last month. It is proposed that Unit S3A will be changed to a materials recycling facility, with the ability to accept and process up to 35,000 tonnes of dry recyclables per annum. The installation of two weighbridges, measuring 15m x 3m, and the relocation and amending of one existing roller shutter door, and the installation of four new roller shutter doors, and the creation of 15 car parking spaces directly off Henry Road form part of the plans. A portion of Unit S3A is also to be reconfigured to facilitate an internal extension of the adjacent garage facility in Unit 2 of S3B. Provision of an in- floor conveyor and a baling unit for processing incoming materials is included. The applicant noted that an application would be made to Dublin City Council for a waste facility permit. The council requested additional information last month, including a full list of up-to-date, authorised waste collection permit NWCPO numbers and details of any sub- contractors, and confirmation of the destination facilities that the authorised waste collection holders intend to use. The applicant has six months to submit the requested documents.

Thomas, owner of Thomas’s Trendy Socks, runs the business supported by his Dad Finbar Barry, and nephew Shane Barry. The Ellensborough resident suffers with Downs Syndrome as well as a host of other serious illnesses such as Perthes Disease, Hirschsprung Disease, Heart Murmur, Under-active Thyroid, Hiatus Hernia, stomach Re-flux and he was the youngest person ever to have hip replacements in Ireland at just 28. However, this has not affected his creative desire to help others. This week Thomas launched ‘It’s Okay, Not To Be Okay’ socks and for every pair sold, he is donating €2 to Pieta to directly support the battle against mental health issues. “I looked at options over the years in the hope to provide some way for Thomas to feel like he can have a job just like everybody else (bearing in mind his disabilities) and the answer was staring me in the face,” said Finbar Barry. “Thomas has always played with socks, he is quite an expert with it after many years of practice. He never played much with toys in his early childhood but would go nowhere without his socks, some children get comfort from a teddy with Thomas it was always the socks. So, we launched Thomas’s Trendy Socks for Thomas selling socks the things he loves most.” Visit for further details.
