DONEGAL PERMITTED TO RESUME COLLECTIVE TRAINING NEXT MONTH

first_imgNew Donegal manager Rory Gallagher is permitted from gathering his squad together for collective training until December 29th.Donegal will be permitted from resuming collective training until December 29th, after the GAA announced its staggered roster system for inter-county teams.Donegal, Kerry, Kilkenny and Tipperary are all restricted from resuming collective training until the 29th of December as the four teams reached their respective All-Ireland finals.The Donegal U21 side is permitted from resuming training until January the 1st, while the Minor team will have to wait until February the 1st. Inter-county managers have criticized the staggered roster system in the past, and the fact it’s almost impossible to police has drawn severe criticism from some quarters.Many inter-county teams don’t adhere to the system and carry on with their schedules regardless, although there is heavy fines imposed on any county found guilty of breaking the rules.Rory Gallagher was appointed as the new Donegal manager on Friday night, and it’s likely his first job will be to discover how many players intend to retire from inter-county football.There are strong rumours that both Colm McFadden and Rory Kavanagh are set to retire from inter-county football. Gallagher will be boosted by the news that double All-Star Neil Gallagher is ready to play on for another year at least.The staggered roster for counties is as follows:November 15 (teams knocked out in June) – London, Fermanagh, Derry, Offaly, Louth, Westmeath, Waterford, Leitrim (football); Antrim, Laois (hurling)December 1 (teams knocked out in July) – Antrim, Longford, Wicklow, Wexford, Cavan, Down, Carlow, Tyrone, Limerick, Laois, Roscommon, Clare, Sligo, Tipperary (football); Clare, Offaly, Waterford, Wexford, Dublin (hurling).December 8 (teams knocked out in August) – Meath, Kildare, Galway, Cork, Armagh, Monaghan, Mayo, Dublin (football); Cork, Limerick (hurling).

COUNTDOWN TO CROKER – FAMILY DRAWS BATTLE LINE IN SITTING ROOM BEFORE BIG GAME!

first_imgThe battle lines have been drawn in the McGowan household ahead of this Sunday’s All-Ireland Football Final between Donegal and Mayo.So intense is the rivalry that mum Karen and dad Eoin have even drawn a line down the middle of the sitting room in Crossmolina, Co Mayo which either can’t cross.Eoin is a native of Bundoran and Karen is a proud Mayo woman and originally from Ballina. Even the couple’s three daughters Laura, 21, Laoise, 5, and Meadbh, six months, have been encouraged to pick their sides.Laoise has opted for Mayo while Meadbh has chosen to side with daddy and choose DonegalEoin, 34, said wife Karen’s fanatical footballing family are trying everything in the book to get him to support Mayo.“The craic is great. I don’t think I have taken off the Donegal jersey for a week. “I’ve put Donegal flags all around the house just to annoy them,” he said.The family, like many thousands of others, haven’t managed to get tickets for Sunday’s game.But Eoin, who works in the Hollister medical equipment company, says they are going to make a real family day out of it.“The sitting room will be divided and once Donegal win I’ll probably be thrown out in the street.“I’ll travel to Donegal for the homecoming if they win and I’ll celebrate with Mayo if they win here – but I will wear my Donegal jersey,” he said.

Chinese auto will debut at Detroit show

first_imgDETROIT – The Motor City will see some proof of the Chinese auto industry’s growing ambitions next month when Geely Automobile Co. becomes the first Chinese automaker to have a display at the Detroit auto show. Geely (pronounced JEE-lee) plans a limited appearance, said John Harmer, vice president of Geely-USA Inc. It will show only one car – a five-passenger sedan called the 7151 CK – in the lobby of Cobo Center, where the North American International Auto Show is held. Geely’s display will be up Jan. 8-11, during the show’s media preview, but will be gone when the show opens to the public Jan. 14. “Our presence in Detroit at this show is not to market the automobile. We are coming only to introduce ourselves to the American media,” Harmer said. Still, Geely will get plenty of attention. There will be more than 6,800 journalists from 63 countries at the Detroit show, according to organizers. Of all the auto shows in North America, shows in Detroit and Los Angeles typically get the most media attention, said Michael Robinet, an auto analyst with the consulting firm CSM Worldwide. “We are absolutely determined to produce a high-quality vehicle that can be marketed to the American consumer for under $10,000,” said Harmer, an attorney and former Washington lobbyist who said he was hired for his expertise in regulatory issues. “We’re not trying to barnstorm the American market. We’re going to protect the product and the credibility of our name.” Geely expects to sell a little more than 100,000 vehicles in China this year, Harmer said. That’s about the same number of vehicles Mitsubishi Motors sold in the United States in the first 11 months of this year. GM sold 4 million in that time. Geely also plans to export 7,000 vehicles this year, mostly to Eastern Europe and the Middle East, Harmer said. Harmer said Geely won’t start talking to U.S. dealers for another year. Detroit auto show co-chairman Richard Genthe said several other Chinese automakers inquired about space at this year’s show, but Geely was the only one that committed to a booth. Geely decided to bring the 7151 CK last week, Genthe said. “We’re excited to be the first show in the Western hemisphere to showcase a Chinese vehicle,” Genthe said. Among the Chinese automakers that won’t be at the Detroit show is Chery Automobile Co., which is developing five vehicles for the North American market that it hopes will go on sale in 2007. Visionary Vehicles founder Malcolm Bricklin, who plans to sell Chery cars in the United States, said the vehicles aren’t ready to show, in part because the interiors are still being finished. “We’re not taking products designed for China and bringing them to America,” Bricklin said. “We’re creating a completely unique line just for North America.” Chery plans to sell its vehicles for between $19,000 and $25,000.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORERose Parade grand marshal Rita Moreno talks New Year’s Day outfit and ‘West Side Story’ remake “Auto shows are one of the quickest and best ways to increase your exposure because of the volume and the breadth of the media that will be there,” Robinet said. “In many respects, the real auto show is during the press days.” Last year, participating automakers spent more than $200 million on their displays at the show. The fact that Geely will be on the home turf of General Motors Corp. and Ford Motor Co. also will cause a stir, since GM and Ford are already losing U.S. market share to rivals from Japan and South Korea. Harmer said Geely wants to begin limited distribution of a five-passenger sedan in Puerto Rico in fall 2007 and in the United States in fall 2008. The company brought 12 Geely automobiles to the United States in July to begin testing to make sure they meet U.S. environmental and safety standards. Harmer said Geely wants to proceed slowly so it doesn’t repeat the mistakes of foreign brands such as Peugeot and Yugo, which pulled out of the U.S. market in the early 1990s. last_img read more

Donegal soldiers among those forced to take cover during Israeli bomb attack

first_imgMembers of the Irish Defence Forces from Donegal were among those forced to take cover during an attack from the Israeli Amry last week in South Lebanon, it has emerged. It is understood that nearly 50 Donegal soldiers, who are part of the UN peace-keeping force, were required to take four hours of refuge during the cross border attack between the Israeli Defence Forces and Iranian-supported Hezbollah.The Irish soldiers responded to the codeword “Groundhog” directing them to take cover in bomb shelters and to don helmets and body armour as the incoming fire from the Israeli forces fell in their area. The Defence Forces tweeted that Irish personnel were “out of shelters” and “resuming routine” on Sunday evening, several hours after announcing that they had taken shelter “as a precautionary measure” after the rockets were fired on Sunday afternoon last.Donegal soldiers among those forced to take cover during Israeli bomb attack was last modified: September 8th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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)last_img read more

Reports Differ on Kansas Evolution Debates

first_imgHow is the debate over evolution in Kansas going?  It depends on whom you ask.  MSNBC News focused on personal attacks between board members (see also the Lexington Herald-Leader).  The Discovery Institute, by contrast, focused on the content of the new proposed standards that allows a “common-sense” approach for teaching all the science about evolution, including the problems with Darwin’s theory.MSNBC’s title suggests that both sides are bickering, claiming “School board members hurl insults at each other.”  But if you look into the article, the only ones hurling insults are the evolutionists; the other side is just putting up their shields.  All Connie Morris said was, after being insulted, “Had you attended, you would have been informed.  You would be sitting here as informed individuals and not arrogantly calling us dupes.”  The article claims Morris mentioned the moderates by name in print, but does not say she insulted them like the Darwinists did; she only derided evolution itself, the article says.  The evolutionists, though, called the conservatives “dupes” of intelligent design advocates and their decision based on “absolute and total fraud.”  Judge for yourself which side is acting with civility and responsibility.    The majority conservatives had invited the pro-evolution moderates to come to the hearings, but they wouldn’t.  The Darwin Party could have contributed to the discussion, but chose to sit and pout.  If they had been listening, they would realize that the Board is taking no position on intelligent design.  The new standards are very mild.  They do not call for teaching creation or intelligent design, but only for permitting critical thinking about evolution such that it is treated like any other scientific theory, not like a sacred cow.  No advocates of a scientific theory would worry about that unless their position was weak.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
