||PCT/IE2014/000007||SHEEHY, Denis||SHEEHY, Denis|
A rainwater collection system comprises a rainwater collection tank (10) located in a downpipe (8) from a rainwater gulley (6) of a flat roof (3). A connecting conduit (62), a pump (16) and a delivery conduit (85) delivers rainwater from the rainwater collection tank (10) to the rainwater storage tank (12), which is at a level lower than the rainwater collection tank (10). When rainwater reaches a predefined pumping level (92) in the rainwater collection tank (10), the pump is activated for a predefined initiating time period to initiate syphonic flow from the rainwater collection tank (10) to the rainwater storage tank (12). A peripheral wall (20) of the rainwater storage tank (10) tapers downwardly. A float controlled valve (30) in the rainwater collection tank (10) allows discharge of rainwater from the rainwater collection tank (10) into the downpipe (8) on the rainwater level in the rainwater collection tank (10) exceeding a predefined overflow level (32).

||PCT/IE2014/000006||RENEHAN, Anne||RENEHAN, Anne|
The present invention relates to visual safety of vehicles in the automotive industry, in particular the invention provides vehicle headlight and taillight regions, with high visibility retroreflective, conspicuity safety markings, to enhance vehicle recognition, when a vehicle is been driven with Head/Dim or taillights, which are not functioning correctly, or have not been turned on. The advantages of this invention are that, it enables vehicles to be more visible to other road users, especially when a badly lit vehicle is being approached from the front or rear, or in the event of a vehicle having faulty lights or forgetting to switch them on. By having the high visibility retroreflective, conspicuity safety markings (1, 3) contained within the light units (5a, 5b) keeps them clean and vibrant, ensure incoming traffic of the location, true width and type of vehicle they are approaching, by giving the impression of a well lit unit, therefore avoiding accidental collision.

||PCT/IE2014/000005||NATIONAL UNIVERSITY OF IRELAND||BRUZZY, Mark|
A device suitable for use in a body lumen and comprises an elongated control member having a distal and a proximal end, and a radially expansible member disposed at or near the distal end and adapted for collection and/or shearing of matter (i.e. thrombus) from a wall of the body lumen (i.e. a vein or an artery). The radially expansible member has a proximal end and a distal end and is adjustable between a contracted orientation and an expanded orientation. The elongated control member comprising a proximal arm connected at or adjacent to the proximal end of the radially expansible member and a distal arm connected at or adjacent to the distal end of the radially expansible member such that movement of one arm relative to the other arm effects adjustment of the diameter or radial strength of the radially expansible member. The device comprises a control mechanism operatively connected to both arms and adapted to provide resistance to the movement of one arm relative to the other. The control mechanism ma be a biasing means, a brake means, or both.
