EXCITEMENT BUILDS TO ULSTER SFC FINAL

first_imgIT’S not often Donegal have the favourites tag – but most pundits are tipping our boys to overcome Derry and win the Anglo-Celt Cup at Clones this Sunday.Disposing of Tyrone in the semi-final at the same venue three weeks ago has – rightly or wrongly – put Donegal into the driving seat for the clash.Whoever wins, it will make a refreshing change to the GAA landscape in Ulster. It will be the first time since 1998 that neither Tyrone nor Armagh will be holding the Anglo-Celt aloft.And it was 1998 that Derry last lifted the Ulster crown; all of 13 years ago when a last minute goal from Joe Brolly saw them beat Donegal.Donegal have to go back further – in fact 19 years to the last time we won the Ulster SFC.We have been in finals since then of course in 2002, 2004 and 2006. The two sides last met in March when Donegal went to Celtic Park and won in the Divison 2 league clash by 2-18 to 2-12.While Tyrone and Armagh fans disagree, it can only be good for the rest of Ulster football to see Derry and Donegal contest the final this time around.And – ticketing fiasco aside – there is a good feeling across the county going into the weekend that Donegal can lift our sixth ever Ulster title.Jim McGuinness has built a side capable of bouncing back. They did so against Derry in March and can do so again, if needed, at St Tiernach’s Park this weekend.The manager’s star ‘veteran’ Colm McFadden said: “We definitely didn’t start well against Tyrone. We’ll obviously be looking to improve on that, whether it was a wee bit of nerves and probably the fact that Tyrone came at us and played good football early on. “Hopefully, it will be good for confidence and give us an extra lift. Every game you win, it seems to push you on that wee bit more, so we should take a wee bit of belief from that game.”Last night at the Mount Errigal Hotel hundreds of fans turned up for a charity fundraising event – in aid of St Eunan’s – to chat to legends from the past as part of the build-up.Not to be outdone the staff at the Abbey Hotel are making sure the green and gold is flying high in time of throw-in.John Smyth & Chou Chi Liu from are pictured by Paul O’Sullivan getting the flags out for the Ulster Final on Sunday. * We will have more news, views and pix in the build-up to the big match this Sunday.EXCITEMENT BUILDS TO ULSTER SFC FINAL was last modified: July 14th, 2011 by gregShare 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:Donegal GAAlast_img read more

DONALDSON FAMILY TO SUE OVER BBC CLAIMS

first_imgTHE family of murdered informer Denis Donaldson – shot dead near Doochary by the Real IRA five years ago – have just issued a statement saying they will sue over claims made in a BBC programme.Spotlight said the Ombudsman failed to properly investigate claims that the PSNI bungled its role in the investigation into the death.In their statement to donegaldaily.com, the Donaldson family said: “In April 2011, we published new information that raised grave questions about the role PSNI Special Branch members played in the circumstances leading to Denis’s murder. “Disclosures by BBC’s Spotlight programme (Tues. 18th Oct. ‘11) have confirmed our statement of concerns.“PSNI Special Branch members knew the movements and communications of Denis Donaldson, and his wife Alice, during the time that he had sought refuge in Donegal.“One former senior member of PSNI Special Branch knows how this information was obtained, why it was gathered, where it was processed, who accessed it, and what was done with it.“His code-name is ‘Lenny’.  He is Denis’s former PSNI Special Branch handler. ’Lenny’ remained a senior member of PSNI Special Branch until earlier this year when he retired from that organisation. “It is now apparent that the issues of complaint, deemed to be “grave and exceptional” that were raised with the current Police Ombudsman were systematically suppressed.  The role played by ‘Lenny’ had been central to our family’s complaint.  The current Police Ombudsman did not even interview ‘Lenny’.“The current Police Ombudsman further demonstrated bland indifference to the content of a journal, which Denis Donaldson had secretly compiled, but which was seized by Gardai at the scene of his murder. They continue to withhold that material from the family citing “security concerns”.“Our solicitors are now preparing legal action in light of the Police Ombudsman’s handling of our complaint.”DONEGALDAILY.COM – DONEGAL’S BIGGEST NEWS WEBSITEADVERTISE FOR JUST €3..click www.donegaldailyclassifieds.com It’s easy to use, no need to spend money on magazines or papers, and you can make yourself some cash!DONALDSON FAMILY TO SUE OVER BBC CLAIMS was last modified: October 20th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:DONALDSON FAMILY TO SUE OVER BBC CLAIMSlast_img read more

EQUIPMENT BOUGHT BY PUBLIC LOST IN HOSPITAL FLOODS

first_imgdonegaldaily.comTHE Friends of Letterkenny Hospital have said that equipment bought during fundraising may have been lost in last week’s flood – but have called for a end to the ‘blame game’ over who was responsible for the disaster.Peter Cutliffe, vice chair of the group, said: “Whilst we are all very shocked and disappointed at the events of the last few days , I believe that we need to show our support for the management & staff at the hospital in these very difficult days and weeks ahead.“It is particularly disappointing for the Friends of the Hospital who have been purchasing equipment for the hospital over the past 21 years to see some of this expensive equipment probably damaged beyond repair. “I believe that, as a voluntary support organisation to the Hospital, we the ‘Friends’ now need to renew our efforts county-wide in order to make a positive contribution to the restoration & repair of Letterkenny Hospital.” EQUIPMENT BOUGHT BY PUBLIC LOST IN HOSPITAL FLOODS was last modified: July 30th, 2013 by John2Share 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:EQUIPMENT BOUGHT BY PUBLIC LOST IN HOSPITAL FLOODSlast_img read more

HARTE WELCOMES ANOTHER 2,500 PLACES ON TUS SCHEME

first_imgDonegal Senator Jimmy Harte has welcomed an additional 2,500 places for training scheme Tus to get people back to work. “This is a welcome development as the unemployment rate here in Donegal is very high” said Senator Harte.The new positions will be distributed through Donegal Local Development Company and the Inishowen Dev. Partnership. The Minister for Social Protection, Joan Burton T.D. announced details of the first tranche of additional 1,100 places on Tús – the community work placement initiative.This announcement will bring to just over 6,000 the total number of placements available on Tús. The additional allocations form part of the roll-out of 2,500 new placements announced as part of the Budget 2013 measures to underpin the Government‚s efforts to support those who are long term unemployed.“This is a welcome development as the unemployment rate here in Donegal is very high” said Senator Harte.This announcement comes as part of the roll out of an additional 10,000 work placements under a number of programmes and initiatives funded by the Department of Social Protection. Last month the Minister announced an additional 2,500 places for the Community Employment programme bringing the total places available on that programme to 25,300. Minister Burton said “This latest allocation for Tús forms part of the Department’s wider efforts to help jobseekers to become job-ready and to find employment, training or an educational opportunity. More than €1 billion will be spent by my Department this year on a range of interventions for jobseekers to acquire work experiences, skills and qualifications to enable them return to labour market.”The additional places will target those who have been on the live register for over 12 months and are in receipt of a jobseeker‚s payment from the Department of Social Protection. The remaining places announced in the Budget will be rolled-out on a phased basis during 2013.Priority in this round of Tús placements has been to areas of the country where demand for work placement has been highest and where the local development company is able to deliver the placements quickly. Tús focuses on keeping a person work ready and providing additional supports to assist them back into the workforce or to pursue other training or educational opportunities. The duration of placement is limited to 12 months.Tús was introduced in July 2011 and to the end of January 2013 some 7,400 people had commenced 12 months‚ work with local development companies.Work placements are provided by community, voluntary and not-for-profit organisations and the local development company matches the skill set of participants to available placements. At the end of January 2013, 2,119 people had completed 12 month contracts. The variety of work placements provided reflects the broad nature of services provided by the community and voluntary sector. All administrative functions are undertaken by the local development company relieving this burden from the host organisation. Tús has a budget of €96 million in 2013.HARTE WELCOMES ANOTHER 2,500 PLACES ON TUS SCHEME was last modified: February 7th, 2013 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:Senator Jimmy HarteTus schemelast_img read more
