I ask the LFP to remove the red card because I did not pay admission to the park,” added the Frenchman in his account on this social network next to a photo in which it seemed that he is sitting at an attraction of the famous park of Mickey Mouse. The LFP resolution on the sanction of Neymar will be made public this Wednesday. Being a red card, a sanction match is certain in the absence of the LFP deciding to extend it or not if it sees reasons.

Nine West Indians retained for next season’s IPL

first_imgMUMBAI, India (CMC):Nine West Indies Twenty20 stars that have enriched the lucrative Indian Premier League have been retained for next season, organisers announced yesterday.Superstars Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo, as well as current West Indies T20 captain Carlos Brathwaite, headline the list, which includes 44 overseas players of the total 140 kept when the window for the eight franchises to retain players for the coming season closed on December 15.Current West Indies Test and one-day international captain Jason Holder and fellow fast-bowler Jerome Taylor are the only two West Indians that were part of the IPL last season that were cut, being dropped by Kolkata Knight Riders and Mumbai Indians respectively.Gayle and leg-spin bowler Samuel Badree were retained by Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), which lost the final this year against Sunrisers Hyderabad.Gayle and Badree are two of 20 that RCB have retained at a cost of close to US$9 million and will help to form the same core of players that played last season.Bravo and his namesake Dwayne Smith have been kept by Gujarat Lions, which retained 16 players at just over US$8.5 million, but also off-loaded eight players, including star South Africa fast-bowler Dale Steyn.Brathwaite regained his place with the Daredevils, as one of five overseas players retained among the 18 at a cost of close to US$7.5 million.Though they may have parted company with Holder, the Knight Riders have, however, held on to spinner Sunil Narine and all-rounder Andre Russell, as two of four overseas players retained as part of a group 14, costing a little over US$7.7 million.The Indians have kept big-hitting Kieron Pollard and compatriot Lendl Simmons among six overseas players that help to form the 20, which the franchise retained at a hefty price tag of just over US$9 million – the highest of the franchises.RCB and the Indians have retained 20 – the highest number of players – and KKR have retained the least number with 14.Rising Pune Superstars released 11 players – the highest number – but Kings XI Punjab still have the biggest cap space of close to US$3.9 million to spend on bringing new playing resources to the franchise.last_img read more

DEATH OF FOOD CRITIC PAULO WHO ‘LOVED DONEGAL’

first_imgTHE death has been announced of the food critic Paulo Tullio – a man who loved Donegal.He visited the county regularly to enjoy both the food and its people.And the people here took to him. “There’s something about Donegal that always makes me enjoy a visit,” he wrote in his column for the Irish Independent in 2011“It’s a mixture of the friendliness of the people and its extraordinary landscape that makes a trip there such a joy.”After travelling to Laghey he met up with friends Jeroan and Sinead McGowan and went to dinner in Donegal town.He wrote: “Sinead was keen for me to try La Bella Donna, an Italian restaurant just off The Diamond in the town centre. Inside, it had the look of an Italian trattoria of the 1980s; it was warm and comfortable and the welcome was friendly. “The first thing I looked at was the wine list, a decent list with some fairly priced Italian wines, from which I picked a wine from the Campania, a Greco di Tufo at €27.“The menu was the usual mix of Italian dishes and dishes designed with the Irish palate in mind. It’s been a long-time rant of mine that Italian restaurants very rarely cook authentic Italian dishes, but I do understand that there is customer resistance and restaurants have to satisfy their customers if they want to stay in business.“You can find an intelligent discussion on this on the website www. ItalianFoodies.blog.com, where I saw a really good idea. What restaurants could do is put a symbol against dishes that are authentic; that way customers would know if what they ordered was the real thing or not.“That’s an idea I’d love to promote, because it would satisfy purists like me, it would be informative and it would allow Italian restaurants to construct a menu that pleases the Irish palate as well as giving them a chance to cook real Italian dishes. It’s an idea that deserves to be adopted by any restaurant claiming to serve Italian food.“Anyway, back to La Bella Donna. We had a mix of dishes between us, some Italian and some not. I particularly like the aubergine parmigiana, which was my starter, and the medallions of beef fillet served with a pepper sauce, which was Sinead’s main course. “I also had a pasta dish of seafood, which was decent enough but not memorable. On balance, I liked the food on offer in La Bella Donna, but I felt they did rather better with the non-Italian dishes than the Italian ones.“We ended the evening right next door in The Reel Inn, which sits alongside the banks of the River Eske. It’s a pub where traditional music is played most nights, the owner John McMenamin being an accordion player. A warming open fire blazed, and we listened entranced to a capella singing.“The next day, Toni and I decided that a shopping spree was what we needed, so it was off to Letterkenny’s new shopping centre for some serious retail therapy. Last time I was in Letterkenny, the Radisson Hotel was surrounded by a building site; now it’s surrounded by a shopping centre.“After a couple of hours of shopping it was time for a bite to eat, so we tried the Bread & Butter Café, which was close to TK Maxx. “We didn’t have high expectations when we sat down in a booth, but the service was excellent and, as it turned out, the food was well made. Toni wanted a light snack, so she ordered the homemade vegetable soup, which came with homemade bread, while I went for a simple dish of fish and chips.“For simple café fare, I thought it was well done. Toni’s soup was well made, nicely presented and the bread was good, while my fish and chips were excellent, the batter on the cod crisp and dry, and the chips managed to be golden, crispy and soft inside. That’s exactly how I think chips should be made, but it’s surprising how rarely they arrive like that. A small ramekin of tasty tartar sauce accompanied the dish.“A shared dessert of Malteser cheesecake and a pretty good espresso finished the meal, which left us both contented.“After visiting Stranorlar, it was back to Donegal town and the Mill Park Hotel, where we were staying. We had a light supper in the bar, which was pretty good and so the Donegal idyll came to an end……DEATH OF FOOD CRITIC PAULO WHO ‘LOVED DONEGAL’ was last modified: June 6th, 2015 by John2Share 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:daddeaddeathfood criticpaulo tullioRIPlast_img read more

Partner of the late Cllr Reid begins court action to remain in home

first_imgThe partner of the late Donegal Councillor JJ Reid has initiated High Court action over fears she will be removed from the home they shared.Former Fine Gael Councillor and businessman JJ Reid passed away on Thursday following a long illness. His partner of 25 years, Ms Fidelma Flynn, took a case to the High Court this Friday afternoon in a bid to have Mr Reid waked at his home at Knockfair Stranorlar. She also sought to have temporary orders and injunctions put in place to ensure she can stay in the home they shared, the Irish Times reports.It is reported that Ms Flynn is concerned that Mr Reid’s family may remove her from the home and she claimed that his family resented her and never accepted her throughout their relationship.Ms Flynn and Mr Reid, then a widower, began a relationship in the 1990s. She claimed she was Mr Reid’s primary carer during his illness, but when he was admitted to hospital she had to enter negotiations with the Reid family to see him.Ms Justice Leonie Reynolds expressed concerns over the timing of the court action and urged that other avenues be explored before Ms Flynn applied for orders again.Read more at : https://www.irishtimes.com/news/crime-and-law/courts/high-court/woman-whose-partner-died-on-thursday-fears-she-may-be-removed-from-home-1.3770892Partner of the late Cllr Reid begins court action to remain in home was last modified: January 27th, 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

SCIENTISTS MONITOR WHALES AS REPEAT OF DONEGAL DISASTER IS AVOIDED – FOR NOW

first_imgMarine experts are monitoring a pod of 60 pilot whales that came close to a mass stranding off the north-west Scottish coast, hoping there isn’t a repeat of the mass deaths on Rutland Island last November.The whale pod, which on Thursday swam into Loch Carnan, a small remote sea loch on South Uist, had, according to members of the British Divers Marine Life Rescue yesterday, moved out of the shallows and into open water, heading south down the coast.Fearing the animals could swim back into the loch, measures were being taken to avoid a repeat of last November’s tragedy, when 33 long-finned pilot whales swam close to the same island and died three weeks later after a mass stranding off the coast of Donegal. “One theory is that they are arriving here in search of food,” said Dave Jarvis of the BDMLR, as news broke that the whales were finally returning to the Atlantic.“But it is becoming increasingly a concern, especially in the wake of what happened in Ireland. We will be careful to ensure that history does not repeat itself.”Rescuers remain on standby with inflatable pontoons, in case any of the whales should break away from the group. Local fishermen also helped to guide the whales back into deeper water.Dave Jarvis said: “The Scottish government has offered the use of the fisheries protection vessel EPV Hirta to shadow the animals’ movements, and this offer has been accepted. The boat is expected in the area within the next few hours.” But he added: “The remainder of the coastline is predominantly rocky, with numerous inlets and bays. These present a separate set of dangers to the creatures.”Some of the whales have wounds, thought to have been sustained when they struck the shoreline.“We believe around 20 of these whales have severe head injuries, but at this stage we aren’t sure of the cause,” said Mr Jarvis. “One possibility is that these injuries were sustained during a previous attempt to strand themselves.”SCIENTISTS MONITOR WHALES AS REPEAT OF DONEGAL DISASTER IS AVOIDED – FOR NOW was last modified: May 22nd, 2011 by gregShare 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

THE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON HAPPY AS CELTIC SEE OFF ARBROATH IN CUP REPLAY

first_imgFROM NEIL DOHERTY AT GAYFIELD: IT’S the Scottish Cup and Celtic would love to win it this year – just to kill off some ghosts from the past.So when Abroath came to Parkhead and stole a draw, the prospect of tonight’s replay had us all wondering nervously if this would be another season without the end of season showpiece trophy.Thankfully Adam Matthews’ brilliant strike after 18 minutes was good enough to move the Hoops into the next round on a frozen pitch which didn’t always make for pretty football. Celtic dominated the game, but never added to the 1-0 scoreline. But it’s winning matches which counts and Neil Lennon was delighted with the result.The manager had made two changes to the side which beat Kilmarnock 3-1 at the weekend, bringing Beram Kayal and Georgios Samaras into the starting XI. Joe Ledley missed out through injury while Gary Hooper dropped to the bench.For his goal, Matthews took the ball from Colin Hamilton and went on a run down the right flank. With a wonderful finish he slammed the ball into the net to put his side into the lead.Celtic remained in control and Tunisian star Lassad came close several times to adding to the lead. Arbroath had two goals disallowed – both rightly.And Forster made a couple of great saves.Celtic will now face Raith Rovers in the fifth round early next year.“It was a performance full of character,” said Neil Lennon afterwards.“It was a horrible night. The pitch got worse as the game went on and you could see how difficult it was to play on. It became almost like an ice rink. “I was worried about the safety of the players but they showed their professionalism tonight and great character. The pitch was definitely a leveller.”Neil added: “Matthews is a great athlete, he’s got great pace and we’ve been asking him to do more of that.“He was far more productive in his offensive play on Saturday and again tonight. He was probably our best outlet and the goal was a real thing of beauty.”ARBROATH: Morrison; Baxter, Malcolm, Keddie, Hamilton; Doris, Currie, Kerr (Birse 77), Robertson, Sheerin (Holmes 77); Sibanda (Rennie 73)Subs not used: Gribben, Bullock CELTIC: Forster; Lustig, Ambrose, Wilson; Matthews (McGeouch 90), Brown, Kayal, Mulgrew, Izaguirre (Wanyama 66); Samaras, Lassad (Hooper 66)Subs not used: Zaluska, MikuTHE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON HAPPY AS CELTIC SEE OFF ARBROATH IN CUP REPLAY was last modified: December 12th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:THE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON HAPPY AS CELTIC SEE OF ARBROATH IN CUP REPLAYTHE HOOPS REPORT: LENNON HAPPY AS CELTIC SEE OFF ARBROATH IN CUP REPLAYlast_img read more

‘I’M LOOKING FOR MY DONEGAL GRANDAD – AND HE DOESN’T KNOW I EXIST’

first_imgTina: Looking for her grandadA SCOTTISH girl has made an impassioned plea to find her Donegal granda, admitting: “He doesn’t even know me and my mum exist.”Tanya Burnett contacted Donegal Daily hoping that she will be able to finally find family members here – and specifically in Killybegs, after 47 years of no contact.Said Tina: My grandad was Eoghan Skeffington and from Killybegs. “He moved over to Aberdeen when he was in his early 30s where he met my grandma, Patricia Fetch.“They seperated when my grandad moved back to Killybegs and my grandma found out she was pregnant soon after.“She attempted to contact him numerous times but never heard anything from him after he moved home.“My grandma was 22 when she gave birth to mum and is now 69. I don’t know too much about him, other than that he had respiratory problems and was a member of the British Legion.” Said Tina: “He would be around 80 years old now (maybe just short of it) and still has no idea he has a daughter and 5 grandchildren.“I would desperately love to find him.”Anyone who can help should email us here at info@donegaldaily.com and we’ll put you in touch with Tina. ‘I’M LOOKING FOR MY DONEGAL GRANDAD – AND HE DOESN’T KNOW I EXIST’ was last modified: April 1st, 2014 by John2Share 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:AberdeendonegalEoghan Skeffingtonfamily searchKillybegsTina Burnettlast_img read more
