Shock as trees cut and stolen from scenic forest walk

first_imgAn attack on a local scenic area in which up to 20 semi-mature trees were cut down has been described as “senseless and shocking.”The trees were hacked down last weekend at Drumboe Woods in the Twin Towns.A major investment was made turning the woods into an area which could be enjoyed by the local community recently with pathways and signage as well as the planting of more trees. Coillte is aware of the attack on the woods and is investigating the reasons for the cutting of the trees which were also taken from the forest.Local county councillor Patrick McGowan said he is very annoyed by the incident considering the work which has gone into developing Drumboe Woods in recent months.“This is a shocking and senseless attack on what is a beautiful area which is enjoyed by so many people.Some of the many trees cut down during an attack in Drumboe Woods at the weekend.“We have a Tidy Towns meeting tomorrow night and we will discuss it but it’s just an attack on the whole community. “I would appeal to anybody who was in the woods in recent days and who may have seen people cutting down trees of acting suspiciously to contact the Gardai.“These are our woods and they are there for all of us to enjoy and something like this cannot be allowed to happen again,” he said.Shock as trees cut and stolen from scenic forest walk was last modified: August 28th, 2019 by StephenShare 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:CoilltecutdonegalDrumboe Woodsstolentreestwin townslast_img read more

It can be an entire lifestyle choice that allows you to focus deeply on what matters most while setting everything else aside. Chris and Anthony both agree that “The state of our attention dictates the state of our lives.” Adding value, creating, and facilitating change all start with productivity, and this interview with Chris can help you get a jump start on making effective changes in the way you operate. Listen now!Use this strategy to determine what tasks and work add the most value to your lifeOn this episode, Anthony asks Chris about his Eisenhower Matrix, an identification system that breaks down tasks into 4 main categories: things that are productive, things that are core and essential to your work, those that are attractive to you, and those that are unattractive. The challenge lies in “value judgments,” and discerning if the tasks that take up so much of your time are actually productive in the truest sense of the word.In order to make these determinations, start by writing out all of the tasks you’re responsible for in a given period of time (weekly, monthly, quarterly, etc.). Then, identify which top 3 tasks add the most value to your workplace and allow you to create the most. Everything else falls into a subcategory of distraction, and from there you can create systems to help you avoid distractions when it matters most.Use THIS strategy to determine what tasks add the most #value to your life and work! Developed by #productivity expert @Chris_Bailey of @ALOProductivity, it’s sure to help you streamline your work. Hear all about it on this ep of #InTheArea with @iannarino.Click To TweetThe difference between hyperfocus, scatter focus, and why both are importantChris tells Anthony that people often revert to focusing on what’s urgent, latest, and loudest if given the chance. To change this pattern of attention, Chris has defined two main areas of focus: hyperfocus and scatter focus. The former is comprised of sections of time (often 90 minutes) that are wholly dedicated to deep, creative work and thought. Scatter focus, however, is the time when you allow your mind to freely wander. Considering people think about their futures and longterm goals 14 times more often when they’re not focused on one particular project, it’s easy to see how both strategies complement one another and result in an overall productivity improvement.Learn how to tame distractions so you can devote deliberate attention to your workWhether you’re spending time on hyperfocused or scatter focus projects, another critical piece to productivity improvement is limiting distractions. Constant emails, tweets, and notifications pull your attention away from the task at hand and prevent you from working optimally. You have to know how much collaboration, distraction, and focus you can balance in your day to day workspace, or you’ll never work in your fullest capacity.
