FA Cup: Monrovia Breweries, BYC Out

first_imgWatanga FC made nonsense of pre-match predictions and kicked out Monrovia Club Breweries out of the 2014 FA Cup with a 4-1 thrashing in the first match of the tournament at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium, yesterday.In the second match, LPRC-Oilers came from a 1-0 down in the second half to find the equalizer and then moved on to eliminate the Liberian champions BYC, 5-4 on penalties.Oilers will now face FC Fassell who drew a bye and moved to the semi-finals automatically.Now with Oilers as their opponents, they will clash in the semi-finals on March 3, at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.Oilers yesterday had their game, putting lots of pressure on BYC who played their game with occasional counter attacks. Oilers’ Soto Roberts cancelled BYC’s goal that right winger Lamin Jabateh scored in the 43rd minute midway in the second half.By all indications LPRC-Oilers deserved their victory since they played a much better and purposeful game.Left winger Vincent Joseph, Myers Gallo and striker Adonis Peter fought bravery but their attempts at goal could not materialize because they were too hasty outside their opponents’ area that they could not initiate any effective tactic to beat the offside traps set by their opponents.They would attack from the wings and push BYC into their own area but forgot that the officiating referee and his linesmen were keeping watch of the offside rules.The players would simply rush, ignoring the offside rule and they were caught at each occasion. They earned several corner-kicks but they could not convert them into goals.At least two of their players earned an unnecessary yellow card caution when they played rough against their opponents.The game ended 1-1 and the five-five penalty kicks were applied and the Oilers managed to win 5-4.The third match was in progress at press time between LISCR FC and NPA, in match that was expected to be more exciting.There were side attractions worth mentioned here. Vuvuzelas blew across the stadium, along with two drummer groups who entertained the crowd and the teams as well as a brass band. The band played memorable tunes that delighted the fans who witnessed some of the best games of the year.The winner of LISCR FC v NPA will meet Watanga in the second game on March 3 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Dungloe students launch unique Enterprise Fair plan

first_imgTwo students have launched a unique Enterprise Fair plan which they hope will bring new ideas and business opportunities to their hometown of Dungloe.The two Students, Caolán Ward and Liane Greene, both grew up in Dungloe.The pair are now attending the national university of Galway where they study business. The Enterprise Fair will take place during this year’s Mary from Dungloe event in July.It was their experience in college that stemmed the idea of running an enterprise Fair during the MFD festival.Living away from home made them realise how many people go to cities like Galway and Dublin seeking work and made them question what their options at home are when they finish their degrees.Speaking at the launch Caolan Ward said that after looking into the options at home they realised there was so much potential in the West of Donegal. “The aim of our enterprise Fair is to show the diaspora returning to the town for the festival period just how much enterprise activity is happening in West Donegal. Showcasing what the area has to offer for young professional looking to find permanent work. They hope to tell the story of those who found success here at home. It will also be an opportunity for business to network and find out the supports available for businesses.”Liane Greene then went on to say they are so happy to have representatives from both Randox and Optum at the event.“They display exactly what we wish to encourage with this event.“Optum’s CEO Padraig Monaghan is a local man that found success originally away from home but came back to west Donegal to set up a business. Randox are also a massive company for our locality as they provide many jobs with a vision of growth.”Caolán continued to say “We greatly appreciate the support of the local business people in attendance and the councilors in attendance. “ Councillor Marie Therese Gallagher then said we have a huge responsibility to ensure the right infrastructures come into the area.She said “Things like broadband access will enable businesses. This, in turn, will help in keeping young people in West Donegal. We want to showcase to them there are more reasons to come home at the weekend than football or a part-time job.’Councillor John Sheamus O Fearraigh then said there are plenty of support in our local area that are ready to help businesses either in the start-up phase or wishing to expand.He said “Udarás na Gaeltachta provide a great service in aiding those in our locality. It’s very important that there is investment put into our youth and their ideas as they are the future of our Gaeltachta”Chairman of Donegal County Council, Cllr Seamus O Donnell, then launched the event. He added “Donegal is such a unique area for business with endless opportunities. It is vital that we can portray west Donegal in a positive light to attract FDI (foreign direct investment). Areas like Dungloe could do with people staying around, this initiative cannot be understated. If this type of initiative was developed in other towns, villages in Donegal, we as a people would be better off from it.”Mark Sharkey, the compere for the evening, and Seamus O Donnell both talked about the importance of businesses supporting the event.Mark added “I would like to ask the fellow businesses in the area to come out and support the initiative because It really is an opportunity to showcase as mentioned earlier.”Dungloe students launch unique Enterprise Fair plan was last modified: July 11th, 2018 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:dungloeEnterprise Fairstudentslast_img read more

SUCKER PUNCH PUTS HARPS CUP DREAMS ON HOLD

first_imgFinn Harps were hit with a sucker punch in the 91st of their FAI Cup third round tie with Cobh Ramblers at Finn Park.Kevin McHugh found the net for HarpsThe Donegal side led throughout after veteran Kevin McHugh found the net after just seven minutes.But a goal from John Meade in injury time left the small crowd at Finn Park stunned into silence. Killea man McHugh had given Harps the perfect start when he saw Cobh keeper Shane Hallahan off his line and lobbed him with a delicate delivery from a tight angle.It was the ideal opening and throughout the first half they could have extended their lead as both Mark Forker and Johnny Bonner both went close for Harps.Cobh began to apply their own pressure towards the close of the half with Martin Deady forcing Ciaran Gallagher to turn the ball around his post.Alan O’Flynn also should have scored when his stunning header beat everyone including the Harps ‘keeper but went just inches wide. What should have been a signal to set alarm bells ringing for Harps, did the exact opposite.The home side looked almost content to sit back on their slimmest of leading margins and invited Cobh on.But the visitors seemed short in ideas in the last third of the field and created few chances despite gaining the lion’s share of the possession.Roy Kenny almost snatched the equaliser in the 70th minute but his effort rolled wide.Ciaran Coll was forced into a goal-line clearance as Harps put everything on the line with just three minutes left. With 90 minutes having been played it looked like Hutton’s side had done enough to reach the quarter finals – the first time they would have done so in a decade.But it wasn’t to be.Davin O’Neill’s cross was whipped into the Harps boss and Meade managed to get a glancing header on it to make it 1-1.It was a cruel way to give up a lead that had last more than 80 minutes but Harps have nothing to complain about. Instead of pushing on they invited Cobh on and were punished in the cruelest of manners.They now face a trip to Cobh on Monday evening and ironically another trip to the same venue for a league appearance the following weekend.All of which certainly won’t be good for the Harps coffers but nothing a victory on Monday won’t make a little easier to take.Finn Harps: Ciaran Gallagher; James Doherty, Thomas McMonagle (Josh Mailey 83), Keith Cowan, Ciaran Coll; Michael Funston, Pat McCann, Sean McGowan, Mark Forker, Johnny Bonner (Lee Toland 66); Kevin McHugh (Paul McVeigh 83).Cobh Ramblers: Shane Brendan Frahill, John Meade, Sean O’Mahony (Owen Hastings 25), Anthony O’Donnell; Alan O’Flynn (Jonathan Spillane 66), Andrew Bhrandarker (Daniel Santry 68), Roy Kenny, Martin Deady; Kynan Rocks, Davin O’Neill.SUCKER PUNCH PUTS HARPS CUP DREAMS ON HOLD was last modified: August 24th, 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:Cobh Ramblersfai cupfinn harpslast_img read more

We were waiting so much for him.” Susan said she felt contractions but thought she was okay to go ahead with the dinner and play with little Tia for a while.But minutes later, as Aidan assembled some of Tia’s toys, she knew she had to go to hospital.“Aidan was very cool and cleaned up some of the dishes but I knew we didn’t have time for dinner – even if it was Christmas dinner,” said Susan.She arrived at Letterkenny General Hospital at 3.05pm and baby Kailee arrived just 40 minutes later at 4.35pm.Susan will leave hospital tomorrow with her perfect Christmas present and promises to have a late festive dinner with al the trimmings. “I think we’ll have to try again and hopefully this time there’ll be no interruptions.“I was looking forward to my dinner but now we have the perfect Christmas present and everyone is healthy and happy,” she said.NEW MUM SUSAN COOKS UP THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS SURPRISE! was last modified: December 26th, 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:Aidan FlinterbabyconvoydonegalLetterkenny General HospitalSusan Flinterlast_img read more

ECM: Surge of online content eludes management

first_imgCompanies with Content Management Systems are happy with them.  Enterprise Management Associates‘s (EMA) January 2007 enterprise content management report found that, when an ECM system was in place, 80 percent surveyed rated their Enterprise Content Management (ECM) solutions as being effective with at worst having a “neutral cost benefit”.But the report also found that 82 percent of the small and medium enterprises that they surveyed had no formal system in place at all and still continue to rely heavily, if not exclusively, on their network file servers and email folders for storing corporate data.And Content Management systems in place today still tend to focus on management of traditional documents like images, drawings, forms, files and videos.  Newer online content sources are making management of data all the more challenging.The EMA report notes that the volume of online content is surpassing traditional content.  FAXes, for example, are dropping in favor of emails and Instant Messaging.  EMA predicts that the level of corporate blogging will more than triple over the next year.All of this online content, whether it be blogs, wikis, podcasts, RSS, email, or IM is flowing within and outside of enterprises today.  And consider yesterday’s blog entry about Enterprise Mashups — how can dynamic content created from mashups using composite services be best captured, stored and archived.  The challenge going forward will be to aggregate and search over these newer online types of content.last_img read more
