The game was played in ideal conditions, andswung from end to end. Burt got a couple of early points to run into anearly lead, with the Scarvey boys missing several chances early on, butthey soon settled and went in at Halftime 2 points in front, thanks to aDermot Doherty goal. Burt got a goal mid-way through the second half, but abullet penalty by Jack O’Loughlin eased nerves and the boys sealed it bytagging on some late points.The swift accurate puck outs from keeper TomClare were the launch-pad for many Buncrana attacks. Donal Óg Mac Lochlainn(capt.) was a rock at full back and he was ably assisted by young cornerbacks, Paul Nelson and Darren Doherty (roe). There was many goodperformances in the middle third of the field, with veteran’s Daniel,Conor, Stephen, Jamie and Michael all playing their part with theirinvolvement with the county minor set-up baring fruit, but here too theywere aided by the impressive work of U16 players, Jack and Sam (Roe).

BRAVE LETTERKENNY ROVERS BOW OUT OF FAI YOUTH CUP IN CORK

first_imgFOOTBALL: Letterkenny Rovers Youths have bowed out of the FAI Youth Cup following a brave display away to Ballincollig FC in Cork this morning.Anthony Gorman’s side have performed superbly to reach the last eight of the prestigious youth competition. The side was decimated earlier in the season with a raft of players joining Finn Harps and Derry City to play in the League of Ireland U17 and U19 leagues.So, to reach the last eight of the competition with a very young side was a magnificent achievement.Ballincollig were tipped as one of the favourites to win the competition right from the outset of the FAI Youth Cup.The Cork side have consistently produced top-class young talent and regularly compete in the knockout stages at a national level. So, an away trip to Ballincollig was a daunting task for Gorman’s young charges.However, Rovers weren’t fazed and they stunned the hosts when they took the lead when Ruairi Friel fired home on 35 minutes.Unfortunately that lead only lasted two minutes and Ballincollig struck back through Matthew Whelan.That’s how it stayed until the interval, and the game was evenly posed for the second-half.However, Whelan struck again on 63 minutes before O’Donovan made the game safe with twenty minutes to go.A brave, brave effort from Letterkenny who gave an excellent account of themselves. Ballincollig march onto the last four of the FAI Youth Cup.BRAVE LETTERKENNY ROVERS BOW OUT OF FAI YOUTH CUP IN CORK was last modified: March 13th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Ballincolligfai cupFootballLetterkenny RoversSportyouthlast_img read more

In those courtrooms, the students assume the roles of lawyers and witnesses facing off on a hypothetical case.While judges donate their time presiding over the mock trials, attorneys from different practice areas also donate many hours scoring the trials and coaching the high school students.The program is one of our legal community’s premier opportunities for students to learn about the justice system and the Constitution.The mock trials are not open to the public, however, school teachers and students wishing to learn more about the program may attend the competition, if they get advance permission by emailing [email protected] Posted: February 14, 2019 KUSI Newsroom KUSI Newsroom, Categories: Good Morning San Diego, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Old unfit launches ready to carry Eid passengers

first_imgWorkers are busy in repairing and refurbishing old and unfit launches to deal the excessive pressure of passengers ahead of the Eid-ul-Fitr. Photo: UNBWorkers of some 30 dockyards in and around Keraniganj, on the outskirts of the capital, are busy in their dockyards, refurbishing old and unfit launches (ferries) to earn extra money ahead of the Eid-ul-Fitr.One of the main features of the Eid-ul-Fitr festival among Bangladeshis is the almost ritual practice of going home to the village for the holidays. Millions leave their cities where they work, to celebrate Eid with their families back home.Visiting different dockyards, including the Rahman Dockyard and Baby Shaheb Dockyard in Keraniganj, the UNB correspondent found that a number of dilapidated launches are being given facelifts.The workers are busy in repairing and refurbishing launches and adding new cabins to the launch to deal the excessive pressure of passengers ahead of the Eid-ul-Fitr.Official sources said launches are the lone mode of transport vehicle for some 5-7 million people on 37 river routes during Eid.A total of 80-90 luxury launches, which ply the Dhaka-Chandpur and Dhaka-Barishal routes, have fitness certificates but 70 unfit launches ply the 27 river routes including Matlab, Bhedorganj, Damudya, Muladi, Gournadi, Patarhat, Rangabali, Gosairhat, Kalaiya, Patuakhali and Morelganj.Workers are busy in repairing and refurbishing old and unfit launches to deal the excessive pressure of passengers ahead of the Eid-ul-Fitr. Photo: UNBThe passengers travel by the unfit launches during the mad rush of Eid, at the risk of their lives.However, the launch owners claimed that the papers and documents of the launches are valid and that these are fit for carrying passengers to tackle the huge pressure during Eid.In reality though, they have only undergone some cosmetic changes like a new paint job, as part of a facelift to attract passengers.AKM Arif Uddin, joint secretary of Dhaka River Port of Bangladesh Inland Water Transport Authority (BIWTA), said, “A special team of BIWTA and river police will strongly monitor and conduct drives at different launch terminals including Sadarghat, Chandpur and Barishal between 2 and 12 June to check overloading and charging extra fares for ensuring smooth journey of the passengers.”last_img read more
