NAOMH CONAILL NOMINATE FORMER McGUINNESS COACH FOR COUNTY MANAGER’S JOB

first_imgBREAKING NEWS: NAOMH Conaill have nominated a Tyrone man to be the next manager of the Donegal Senior Football team.The Glenties club have put forward the name of their former manager Cathal Corey to take the county manager’s role.Mr Corey, a father of three who works as a sales rep for a national stove company, was the joint manager of Naomh Conaill with Jim McGuinness in 2009. The coach – nephew of Derry manager Brian McIvor –  took the club to the county title and an Ulster final against Crossmaglen in 2010.He is highly respected in the game, and in particular by Jim McGuinness.Up until now former Donegal No2 Rory Gallagher was being seen as the front runner for the position but Corey’s nomination is being seen as an ‘exciting’ development.His dedication to Donegal could be seen in an AIB promotional video taken on the day of the All-Ireland Final last month when he refused cash for his club in return for tearing up his match ticket. But he said he felt duped afterwards after the video appeared to show him rejecting the money.He said he was offered just €500, not €2,000, and that the video left out his offer to make the donation himself.He said he received abusive messages afterwards.“I said to him: look, I don’t have much money, but I’ll give my club €500 out of my own money, but I want to go see the match here today,” said Corey at the time, saying he was personal friends with McGuinness, Leo McLoone and the Thompson brothers.“They were friends of mine, and I wanted to go to that match. Leon Thompson offered me the tickets – they were their tickets they got for their family and good friends, and I didn’t want to miss the game.” But instead, he said the video (below) seemed to show him rejecting €2,000 for his Tyrone club so he can see Donegal play.Cathal said he thought nothing more of it until the following Tuesday, when he received a text message from a friend telling him he was right not to rip up his ticket. He had not seen the video that that point.“The second that I watched it and seen them giving your man a cheque for €2,000 I knew … the way people were going to be.”“It made it look like they had offered me and the other four or five people €2,000 – but that wasn’t the case. I knew I was going to get s***.” NAOMH CONAILL NOMINATE FORMER McGUINNESS COACH FOR COUNTY MANAGER’S JOB was last modified: October 17th, 2014 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:Cathal CoreydonegalGlentiesJim McGuinnessManagerNaomh Conailllast_img read more

Park and hide: Drivers in Donegal costing council more than €160,000 in unpaid parking fines

first_imgDonegal County Council has yet to receive more than €160,000 in unpaid parking fines over the last two years to date, it has emerged. Figures obtained by Donegal Daily under the Freedom of Information Act show the local authority is yet to receive money owed for more than 2000 unpaid parking tickets in the county.Between 2018 and 2019 (to date) 2,135 ticket fines were issued and unpaid within Donegal amounting to a total of €162,160. Once a fixed charge notice is issued, payments are expected to be made within 28 days with fines ranging between €40 – €150 for offences such as fixed charge offences, non-display of tax disc or for the illegal parking in a disabled bayIf payment is not received within 28 days, the fixed charge amount will increase by 50% and payment should be made within a further period of 28 days.In cases where parking fines remain unpaid, the local authority ordinarily initiates court proceedings against the registered owner.Thousands of cases come before the district court every year relating to the non-payment of fines. In its response to the FOI request, a council spokesperson said that “every effort is made to pursue all outstanding fixed charge notices up to and including court proceedings.”Park and hide: Drivers in Donegal costing council more than €160,000 in unpaid parking fines was last modified: October 24th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare 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:parking finelast_img read more

RIM Agrees to Indonesian Government’s Demands to Filter BlackBerry Users’ Internet Access

first_imgRelated Posts Why IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Tags:#mobile#NYT#web The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologycenter_img BlackBerry maker RIM has agreed to the Indonesian government’s demands to implement pornography filters for the country’s 2 million BlackBerry users. According to a statement from the company RIM is seeking a “prompt, compliant filtering solution.” The Indonesian government gave RIM until January 21 to begin filtering porn sites or face being shut down in the country.RIM has faced these sorts of threats from other governments for failing to censor online content, most notably last year when both Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates were poised to ban the devices for non-compliance with the countries’ telecommunications rules. But this is the first time that RIM has publically agreed to filter Internet content on its phones. However it’s unlikely to be the last time that it will face these sorts of demands, particularly as RIM expands into countries where there are heavy restrictions on porn and other “objectionable” content. “This isn’t just Indonesia,” Heru Sutadi, a member of the Indonesian Telecommunications Regulatory Body, which oversees the industry, told Bloomberg. “Middle Eastern countries are also being hard on RIM. By looking at the big Indonesia market, I’m sure RIM will obey.”According to Bloomberg, the filtering in Indonesia may include a complete blocking of the BlackBerry’s web browsing capabilities. While RIM has said it will offer an Internet filter in Indonesia, it has complied with several other of the government’s requests, building a server in Indonesia so authorities can “conduct investigations against perpetrators of crime.” Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement audrey watterslast_img read more

Mark your calendars for a three-part series for military service providers that will focus on an integrated approach to professional development. The VLE will highlight the core competencies to working with military family caregivers of wounded service members and caregivers of special needs individuals.The three-part series includes topic areas in Building Trust and Credibility (October 28); Cultural Competencies (November 4); and Compassion Fatigue (November 18). Each event encompasses the overall theme of the professional development training – targeting the “core competencies” of our professional work with clientele.  Our goal is to re-energize the working environment and inspire personal and professional growth in order to better serve our service members and their families.The VLE is so unique from our normal professional development webinars because participants can gain a more engaged training that is similar to a professional conference but in a virtual format. The events are also more compatible with the busy schedules of military helping professionals and provide training on a virtual level to alleviate the travel restrictions and budget cuts that many of us are faced with.Oh and did I mention this is a FREE training that is open to the public, not only military professionals, but to all who may be interested?Be on the lookout for more details to come. In the meantime, begin penciling in the VLE trainings into your calendar.This MFLN-Military Caregiving concentration blog post was published on July 3, 2015.last_img read more

Juventus close in on Serie A title after Gianluigi Buffon heroics

first_imgJuventus need one point to secure the Serie A title after beating rivals Fiorentina 2-1 away on Sunday helped by Gianluigi Buffon saving a 90th minute penalty from Nikola Kalinic.Alvaro Morata struck the 83rd-minute winner for Juve two minutes after Kalinic had equalised for the hosts with a curling effort to cancel out Mario Mandzukic’s first-half opener.Juve have 85 points, 12 clear of Napoli who have four games left, and will claim a record fifth consecutive Scudetto on Monday if second-placed Napoli fail to beat AS Roma away.Massimiliano Allegri’s Juve side took one point from their opening three matches this season and were 11 points off the pace as late as Oct. 31 but they have won 24 of their 25 league games since then, picking up 73 points in that period.”It was nearly impossible to win 24 games out of 25,” Allegri told Sky Sport Italia. “This (win at Fiorentina) was another step towards the championship.”Mandzukic opened the scoring in the 39th minute whenPaul Pogba headed Sami Khedira’s lofted pass into his path.Kalinic stunned Juve in the 81st by capitalising on an error by Leonardo Bonucci before firing past Buffon but moments later Morata levelled with a tap-in after a goalmouth scramble.Kalinic could have rescued a point for fifth-placedFiorentina, who have 59, after earning a dubious late penalty, but his spot kick was saved by the outstanding Buffon.”It was vital to win at a stadium where they don’t like us very much at all,” Morata told Mediaset Premium.”(Buffon) just isn’t human, he’s a superhuman to save that penalty,” he added. “We hope to win the title in the next round of matches.”advertisementShould Napoli beat Roma on Monday, then Juve — the ‘Old Lady’ of Italian football — will have a chance to wrap up the title when they host relegation-threatened Carpi next Sunday.PALERMO WINElsewhere, Palermo won 2-0 at Frosinone in a crucial relegation tussle on Sunday to move above their fellow strugglers in the battle to avoid the drop.Veteran striker Alberto Gilardino scored with a header after 56 minutes and midfielder Aleksandar Trajkovski doubled the lead in stoppage time to move Palermo up to 18th and level on 32 points with Carpi.Carpi, who are one place above the relegation zone, host Empoli on Monday. Frosinone are 19th on 30 points.Bottom team Verona, who are a long way adrift with 22 points, play AC Milan on Monday and need a win to keep alive their slim survival hopes.Sassuolo won 3-1 at Torino to retain seventh place and move within one point of Milan, who occupy the last of the European qualifying berths.Ten-man Atalanta, who had Argentine forward Alejandro Gomez sent off 15 minutes from fulltime, beat Chievo Verona 1-0 at home in Bergamo with a 55th-minute goal by Marco Borriello.There were also home wins for Bologna, who beat Genoa 2-0, and Sampdoria, who dented Lazio’s European ambitions with a 2-1 victory.last_img read more
