first_imgHeerenveen are looking for a striker after Odgaard, the starting striker this year, has to return to Sassuolo. JClub manager Johnny Jansen has made no secret that they would love to bring Huntelaar back. In a statement to Omrop Fryslan, the coach explained: “It would be wonderful. The Huntelaar name is always an option. Gerry Hamstra (Sports Director) will speak to him. Hopefully we could sign him.” Huntelaar’s situation in Ajax is still in the air. There is a law in the Netherlands that requires clubs to announce what they will do with players who end their contracts at the end of the season before April 1 and the Amsterdam club did not renew his contract. Although they could always reach an agreement in the coming months, it seems that he has finished his second stage at Ajax.“It would be nice to have a conversation with him. He is a good name for the Heerenveen, with his story … It would have a lot of value for us. But he has to want”Jansen acknowledged. The Hunter played sixty games between 2004 and January 2006 at Abe Lenstra Stadion, in which he scored 39 goals. After that year and a half he signed for Ajax.last_img read more

first_imgDear Editor,With much fanfare this Government boasts about spending money to make the 911 emergency calls centre better. On Tuesday at 15:39h (3:39pm) I called to report that someone picking my cherries from my tree and when I confronted the person, he threatens to chop me. The person answering the emergency call told me I need to go to the nearest Police station and make a report. When I ask her how can I when the man is still outside, she told me to hold on. After a while I don’t know if the call was transferrd but someone else greeted me and query my report. Again I was advised the same and when I pointed out my dilemma, the phone was cut off. So must I risk my life to get justice?Sincerely,Sahadeo Bateslast_img read more

first_imgThe JCB at work at the hospital in recent days.A spokesman for Letterkenny General Hospital has denied that a JCB has been put on standby to prevent further flooding.The JCB digger was spotted close to the entrance to the A@E Department in recent days.The area was the scene of the two recent floods which caused more than €30M worth of damage to the facility. The flooding is believed to have been caused when a culvert at the rear of the hospital overflowed and brought thousand of gallons of water gushing into the hospital grounds.A report on the floods has yet to be made public.A spokesman for Setanta Communications on behalf of the hospital denied that the JCB was again on standby.It was revealed earlier this year that the JCB digger was being rented and had been on standby in the event of another flood. But a Setanta spokesman said the JCB was no longer on standby.“This is part and parcel of routine cleaning of the culvert in order to prevent the silting up of the culvert by winter debris,” he said.HOSPITAL DENIES DIGGER IS BACK ON STANDBY was last modified: November 10th, 2015 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:DIGGERfloodJCBletterkenny hospitallast_img read more

first_imgPat the Cope Gallagher MEP has said a Green Party statement issued yesterday claiming he and his Fianna Fail colleagues voted to cut the European Union Solitary Fund by 50% is “grossly misleading.”Pat The Cope Gallagher MEPGreen Party candidate for Midlands – North West, Mark Dearey, attacked the Donegal MEP after he called on the Irish Government to apply for storm funding.The Green party politician said Mr Gallagher and his colleagues in Fianna Fail all voted to cut the EUSF by 50%, despite knowing that as a peripheral Atlantic country, Ireland is highly vulnerable to a changing climate and could require funding from this source. Pat the Cope hit back “My understanding is that the Green Party is referring to the general budget of the EU for this year 2014. I can confirm that I voted in favour along with 11 out of 12 Irish MEPs.“The budget allocates €532 million to the EU Solidarity Fund for 2014. The Irish Government can apply for this funding, and I strongly urge them to do so before Friday’s deadline.“In fact on the same day, the European Parliament voted to allocate EU Solidarity Funding to Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic and Romania for flooding, drought and forest fires.“This further highlights the mistake the Government is making by not applying for EU Solidarity Funding. Funding is available, if an appropriate regional based application is submitted. “EU Member States agreed to reduce the total budget for the EU Solidarity Fund to €500 million per year as part of an overall deal on the EU budget for the period 2014 to 2020, known as the Multi annual Financial Framework. The Parliament subsequently endorsed the MFF agreement negotiated by the Irish Presidency in mid-2013.“Are the Greens really suggesting that I should have voted against the MFF thus preventing vital funding to Ireland through the Common Agricultural Policy, the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund, the Peace programme, youth unemployment, Horizon 2020 and support for the Border, Midland and Western region to name but a few?“If the Greens had any real interest in the people impacted by the storms they would also call on the Government to apply instead of trying to score cheap political points against me ahead of the European Elections.”PAT THE COPE ACCUSES GREENS OF TRYING TO SCORE CHEAP POLITICAL POINTS was last modified: February 19th, 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:cutsEU Solitary FundGreen PartyMark DeareyMEP Pat The Cope Gallagherlast_img read more
