  • PAT THE COPE SLAMS GOVERNMENT FOR NOT APPLYING FOR STORM FUNDING

    first_imgMEP Pat the Cope Gallagher has described the refusal of the Irish Government to apply for EU Solidarity Funding in the wake of the extreme weather as a ludicrous and rash decision.Mr Gallagher called on the Government to re-think its decision and apply before the end of this week as the deadline set by the European Commission is Friday, the 21st of February.“Reports from the UK suggest that David Cameron’s Government will now apply for EU Solidarity Funding having earlier dismissed the idea out of hand. The bottom line is that the Irish Government has made a mistake and must also reconsider and apply for assistance. “The Government has stated that the expense of the damage incurred is below the threshold for assistance. The fact of the matter is that the application submitted in 2009 following severe flooding the same year was also below the threshold. However, the then Government submitted a regional based application, which ultimately proved to be successful as Ireland received €13 million. I am confident that if the Government submits a similar regional based application, it would also result in a positive outcome.”He added that is now urging the Government to reconsider its decision and to apply for funding before the closing date of the 21st of February, as confirmed to him by the office of the EU Commissioner for Regional Development, Johannes Hahn. An initial application can be submitted by Friday, followed up with more details at a later stage.Mr Gallagher concluded “The Government simply cannot afford to turn its nose up at any opportunities for assistance available at an EU level to deal with the damage caused by the severe storms and flooding.”  PAT THE COPE SLAMS GOVERNMENT FOR NOT APPLYING FOR STORM FUNDING was last modified: February 18th, 2014 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:fundingPat The Cope Gallagherstormlast_img read more

  • COLEMAN AND McGEADY PUT ON FINE DISPLAYS TO HELP KEANE TO HAT-TRICK HEROICS

    first_imgSEAMUS Coleman and Aiden McGeady put on superb performances at the Aviva Stadium on Friday night to help Robbie Keane to a hat-trick in Ireland’s 3-0 win over the Faroe Islands.Killybegs man Coleman set up Keane’s crucial second goal and McGeady set up the first – and almost scored twice himself –  to move Ireland into third place in their World Cup qualifying group.“It was nice to get the goals,” said Keane, making a record 126th appearance, one more than Shay Given’s record. “But obviously, most important was the three points. All in all it was a good day for us. It’s always important against these teams to get the first goal and I managed to do that. I keep saying it’s a privilege and an honour to play for my country. To put this green jersey on means a hell of a lot to me and long may it continue.“Aiden (McGeady) was on fire in the first half especially, he was killing the full-back. I just anticipated the pull-back and lucky enough for me I managed to get there to get the first ball.“It’s about movement and getting in front of the first man, knowing where the ball will go. I’ve been lucky enough in my career to score a few, so you get used to knowing certain positions to be in where the ball might go.”Ireland hustled and bustled at the Aviva – frustrated by an eight-man Faroes defence. But the win leaves us just behind Austria on goal difference – and three points ahead of Sweden who have a game in hand.Ireland: David Forde; Seamus Coleman, John O’Shea, Sean St ledger, Marc Wilson (Stephen Kelly 81); Simon Cox, Glenn Whelan, Wes Hoolahan, Aiden McGeady (James McClean 77); Jonathan Walters (Conor Sammon 74), Robbie Keane.Subs not used: Kieren Westwood, Darren Randolph, Damien Delaney, Richard Dunne, Darren O’Dea, Paul McShane, Stephen Quinn, Andy Keogh, Jeff Hendrick,Booked: Hoolahan.Faroe Islands: Gunnar Nielsen; Jonhard Frederiksberg, Atli Gregersen, Rogvi Baldvinson, Ari Mohr Jonsson; Suni Olsen, Heini Vandsdal; Simun Samuelsen, Christian Holst (Hans Pauli Samuelsen 84), Pol Johannus Justinusen; Pall Klettskaro (Joan Simun Edmundsson 65).

  • ‘I’d be surprised if any good comes out of it’: Wembley whistleblower

    first_img 2 Wembley Stadium Mr Kline worked for Shahid Khan for seven years, becoming Assistant Director of Football at Fulham until his acrimonious departure from the club in 2017.In Tweets posted this week he claimed to possess a ‘paper trail’ of fraud in football, including ‘systemic corruption’ relevant to the sale of Wembley.The FA has confirmed it is “in the process of reviewing these allegations” in light of a recent meeting with Mr Kline.A spokesperson for Shahid Khan said: “This is nothing more than bogus claims made by a former employee who left the club in 2017. Nothing here merits a further response.”The FA Council is today discussing the £600m offer for the national stadium from billionaire Mr Khan, who has promised to be a “responsible owner and operator”.Mr Kline said: “I’d be surprised if the things being said now prove accurate in the long term.” 2 Craig Kline After Fulham owner Shahid Khan dismissed claims of corruption relating to his attempted purchase of Wembley as ‘nonsense’, the man who made them has spoken to talkSPORT.Craig Kline said: “Whatever people are hoping, whatever good is supposedly going to come from this deal, I would be surprised if that is the way it turns out.” At the time of his exit from Fulham Mr Kline, who had clashed with senior club executives, made several allegations about his colleagues to police, although these were dismissed.But now, 11 months later and with the sale of Wembley to Mr Khan possibly imminent, he has spoken out again.He told talkSPORT: “I have lots of relevant evidence, generally to the Wembley situation, but at this time I cannot name names because of a number of situations I’m dealing with.”Mr Khan’s spokesperson described the claims as “ongoing nonsense” from Mr Kline.Mr Kline claims he first reported his concerns to the Football Association in 2016. The FA confirmed to talkSPORT its Integrity Team had no record of his complaints. It also believes the correct channels are easily found.Craig Kline insists the FA should have contacted him immediately after Shahid Khan’s bid for Wembley arrived on its desk in April.He added: “I’m really curious as to what sort of vetting they have been doing. Nobody has reached out to me to investigate any of the things I have tried to bring forward.“I have been an attorney for some of the people involved going back all the way to 2011. I have had dinner with many of these people, overheard an enormous number of conversations with many of these people. So I am very curious how the FA have decided not to follow up on this stuff.”The FA Council is due to hear from Football Association executives today, who are supporting the sale of Wembley to Shahid Khan. It is understood the FA Council will vote on the proposal later this month.Mr Khan owns NFL team the Jacksonville Jaguars and plans to relocate the franchise to London and host the Super Bowl at Wembley.The FA Board and Sport England believe the stadium’s sale is in the best interests of British football as it would enable £600m to be invested in grassroots.last_img read more

  • THE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON DELIGHTED WITH THREE POINTS AT TANNADICE

    first_imgFROM NEIL DOHERTY AT TANNADICE: Celtic manager Neil Lennon has admitted he considered quitting his job when his side was 3-0 down last month at Kilmarnock.The Hoops came back to draw 3-3 in that game – and have been on a run since.So you can imagine how pleased Neil was to see his side extend their Scottish Premier League winning sequence to five matches today with a 1-0 win over Dundee United. “I’m thrilled with the three points, it keeps the run going,” he said. “Some of the football was decent but you’re always looking for better.“I was happy with the first half, I thought we were excellent.“Final third, second half we were poor and that was the difference between us winning the game more comfortably.”Gary Hooper struck a great goal in the 12th minute after a strong opening from the Hoops. The second half may have been like watching paint dry; but a win is a win and the gap behind Rangers is back down to four points – with Hearts the visitors to Parkhead next Saturday.“The early goal today gave us a huge lift,” said Lennon.“Going forward we were very good and we could have been a couple up. But you always need that second goal.“Second half we weren’t as productive in the final third as we could have been. I wanted a little more quality but we were running the ball too much and not moving it quickly enough.”In other news, Scott Brown is set to pledge his future to the club but rumours in Glasgow suggest Israeli playmaker Beram Kayal could be off to Liverpool in the January transfer window.

  • SA hot destination for US tourists

    first_imgTourists enjoy sightseeing in Cape Town. (Image: Jeffrey Barbee, MediaClubSouthAfrica.com. For more free photos, visit our image library.)Khanyi MagubaneA recent survey by a top US travel magazine has revealed that American tourists rate Cape Town as their third favourite city in the world.Thousands of tourists participated in Travel + Leisure’s 2008 World’s Best Awards readers’ survey, which placed Bangkok, Thailand, as the top city to visit and Buenos Aires in Argentina as the second favourite.But numbers show that Cape Town in the Western Cape is not far behind. According to South African Tourism, in 2006 alone the province welcomed 145 211 visitors from the US. This was an increase of 19,64 % from the previous year.The Americans also voted Singita Boulders Lodge in the Sabi Sands game reserve, adjacent to the Kruger National Park, as the top hotel in the world. Cape Town’s Cape Grace Hotel was placed 22nd in the same category.As part of the poll, Travel + Leisure subscribers were invited to fill in a questionnaire and rate cities, hotels, islands, airlines, cruise lines, rental-car agencies, destination spas, hotel spas, tour operators and safari outfitters.The different cities included in the survey were rated on characteristics such as the different tourist sights on offer, cultural and art attractions, eateries and shopping opportunities, and value for money.The hotels were judged according to the rooms and facilities on offer, where they were situated as well as the restaurants and value of food offered by the establishment.Other winners in the survey included Singapore airlines as the world’s best international airline, New York as the best city in the US, Hertz as the best car-rental agency and the Galápagos Islands, Ecuador, as the world’s best islands to visit.All the 2008 winners in the different categories will be honoured at an awards luncheon in New York City on 24 July.Impressive growthTourism is booming not only in the Western Cape, but in the rest of South Africa too. This is in line with the global trend of all-round growth in the sector.Statistics released by South African Tourism indicate that foreign tourist arrivals in South Africa reached a record high of 7.4-million in 2006, which represents a 10.3% increase on 2004’s figures and exceeds the estimated 5.5% average global growth rate in tourism.This figure continued to climb as the number of foreign visitors in South Africa grew by 10% from January to May 2007. This positive trend is reflected in arrivals at airports, which increased by 4,4% during the first five months of 2007 compared with the same period in 2006.Useful linksSouth African TourismCape Town GovernmentTravel and leisure magazineSingita Game ReserveKruger National Parklast_img read more

  • Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast — August 1, 2018

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Clouds and rain linger this today, but in general, precipitation will be tapering off to nearly nothing as the day wears on. We are less concerned about precipitation today but can’t wave the all clear flag just yet. Totals today likely are no more an a few hundredths to a half an inch with coverage at 60% of Ohio. Most of this is wrap around action, coming behind the strong low and the front that moved into the eastern Corn Belt yesterday.High pressure takes control tomorrow, nosing in from the west and northwest. This will bring nice, dry weather the state not just for tomorrow, but on through the end of the week, the weekend and early next week. We should be cool tomorrow as the sun works through, and then see temps climb steadily to near normal levels by the start of the weekend, and then above normal levels later this weekend into next week. South winds will develop on the backside of the high, facilitating the warm up. We do need to keep an eye out to the south. There is some hint that moisture develops over eastern KY and WV later this week into the weekend, and if you are in southern OH, you can see some building of clouds. We do not think it leads to precipitation in Ohio at this time, but it is something we are keeping an eye on, because we are a little surprised at the resilience of moisture in this area.We still have a front and some moisture on the way for Tuesday of next week, but the wave is losing strength, and coverage is significantly lower. We will keep rain totals right now at .25”-1” over 60% of the state, but we will admit straight up that most of the state will be between .25”-4” if you see rain at all. The upper half of the range will be limited to those areas that see thunderstorms, and right now those thunderstorm chances look to be relatively minor., We will continue to watch central to northeast Indiana as hot zone areas for thunderstorm development next Tuesday, but this action looks largely hit and miss.Dry weather is back as soon as Wednesday morning to midday, and we are dry through the rest of the 10-day period. For the 11-16 day forecast window, we have dry weather with minor high pressure in control through the 12th. For the 13th we have scattered showers coming in from the west and they linger into the 14th. This morning we will keep rain totals at .25”-.75” with coverage at 60%.The biggest story for agriculture by far will be temps next week. We are calling for highs to be above normal all week, and compared to the past 2 weeks, it will feel very hot. We look for highs next week to be 88-93. We think humidity levels will be lower, though, so we still should be less extreme than what we saw back in early July near the Independence Day holiday. But, be ready to hear more headline chasers tell you how extremely hot it will be, not just here, but across the corn belt in general. The map at right shows high temps next Tuesday afternoon.last_img read more
