Two-title winning Tivoli Gardens Football Club coach Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey has admitted that he found his former team in a less than ideal state and has been having to teach football tactics from the very basics.Bailey replaced Christopher Bender late this season and got his team off to a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Rivoli United at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex.”There is a lot of work to be done. First and foremost, I have to get them more tactically aware so they understand the role and understand where they are supposed to play on the football field and what time, and then the playing conditions,” Bailey outlined.When asked if his team could rebound to finish among the top four and make it into the semi-final round, Bailey said that he was not looking that far.”There is still a lot of work to be done; there is nothing to celebrate. In terms of the fitness level and the whole understanding role for the football field, there is still a long journey, still a long way to go, but it is always good to start out positive and winning,” stressed Bailey, who admits to taking time away from his musical career to deliver Tivoli from a relegation struggle.Tivoli then rallied to a similar 2-1 come-from-behind win over Harbour View on Sunday, taking them to four points ahead of the relegation zone and one point behind ninth-place Cavalier SC.”It was very important for us. I think it gets us out of the red temporarily. One step, one day at a time, but there is still a lot of work to be done,” Bailey said.

The Irish Pharmacy Union (IPU) is urging motorists to be extremely vigilant when driving and taking prescription medicines, recommending that they talk to their pharmacist to ensure they do not break the law.The call comes in response to new roadside tests being introduced in March that will check motorists for commonly prescribed medicines including diazepam (valium) and sleeping tablets.Cationa O’Riordan, a pharmacist and member of the Executive Committee of the Irish Pharmacy Union said; “It is extremely important when taking any medicines that individuals ensure that they are taking the prescribed dose.” “This is particularly so when driving, not only to ensure that they are under the legal limit but also because there can be possible side-effects from some medications, such as drowsiness, which may impact on their ability to drive safely.”“For motorists to continue to drive safely, I would strongly recommend that they read the label on their medicine, check the required dosage and the possible side-effects, and talk to their pharmacist if they have any concerns.”IPU urge motorists to talk to their pharmacist before driving on prescription medication was last modified: January 29th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:catriona o riordanipumedicationperscriptionPharmacist
A RISING Donegal star in English soccer who had been linked with a big money move to the Premiership was today axed by his club.Ipswich Town’s second-year Academy keeper Conor O’Donnell was being eyed by Premier League trio Stoke, Blackburn and Bolton, according to some newspapers in England last week.Irish U17 international O’Donnell joined the East Anglia Championship team from his local club Buncrana Hearts in the summer of 2010. A regular for Town’s U18s this season, the 18-year-old never made the first-team squad.Ipswich Academy manager Sammy Morgan spoke of the difficulty of letting the O’Donnell and some other players go today.“It’s the hardest part of the job for Russell [Osman, U18 coach] and I. We have worked with the boys for two years, longer in many cases, and it’s hard to sit down with them and tell them we have to let them go – but decisions have to be made,” he said.“We will circulate the names of the others and try and help them get fixed up with a club. Just because we have not given them a contract, it doesn’t mean they won’t stay in the game. There are plenty of examples of players being released who have gone on to have good careers in football.” Conor had been signed by former Ipswich manager Roy Keane.

Sinn Féin is carrying out an extensive survey on attitudes to crime in the peninsula.The survey which will interview more than 1500 participants as well as numerous community groups will be compiled into a detailed report which will be presented to the Gardaí and the community in Donegal.Commenting on the initiative, Cllr Jack Murray said there is major concern across Donegal about Garda cutbacks. “There is a growing apprehension in parts of Donegal as to the increase of crime in the peninsula coupled with cuts to Garda resources and station closures.“As political representatives we need to do all in our power to ensure crime is both stopped and prevented. We need to ensure the safety of our communities.“Sinn Féin in Donegal meets and engages regularly with the Gardaí; we will also meet with the PSNI in the coming months.“But to strengthen our case for extra resources we need expansive and detailed intelligence as to the impact and severity of crime in the county; we need to know what type of crime is most prevalent and where. Sinn Fein are currently carrying out door to door surveys in Inishowen. This will involve 500 face to face interviews with an even demographic spread across the peninsula.They will engage with community groups, sporting clubs and businesses to properly assess the mood of people on the ground.“This project will also be rolled out in the Letterkenny/Milford area and along the border to Lifford with another 500 interviews in each of those areas.“Once all the information has been collated we will present a detailed report to the Gardaí, local community groups and the media so that it can be consumed by the public.“No project has ever been rolled out like this before in Donegal and I would ask everyone to weigh in behind us. This will strengthen our hand to argue for proper resources to be directed to our communities, for the betterment and safety of all.” SINN FEIN LAUNCH ‘ATTITUDES AND IMPACTS OR CRIME’ SURVEY IN DONEGAL was last modified: August 20th, 2012 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:Cllr Jack MurraySinn Fein

Ryan Toms’ manager Dave Currivan says his fighter is determined to win back the southern area light-middleweight title this weekend.Toms, from Northolt, held the belt until a first-round defeat against fellow West Londoner Steve O’Meara at Bethnal Green’s York Hall last year.Weise was knocked out by O’Meara.On Saturday night he returns to the same venue for a rematch against Nathan Weise, who was himself poleaxed there by O’Meara in December – also in the first round.O’Meara has since vacated the title, meaning it will be up for grabs when Toms and Weise, whose last meeting ended in a draw, lock horns again.Former solider Toms, 30, has been sparring with Alan Higgins of Kilburn – who makes his professional debut on Saturday’s bill – and unbeaten Birmingham prospect Thomas Costello.“It’s gone really well. Ryan’s had some very good sparring and is really focused on this fight,” Currivan told West London Sport.“Everything’s gone as we’d have wanted it to and Ryan’s really looking forward to Saturday night.“He knows what he’s got to do and is in good shape. He wants that title back and has trained hard for this one.”A victory would put Toms back in the frame for a shot at the British title or a possible rematch with O’Meara.“We’d definitely take a rematch. It’s a fight we’d like to happen,” Currivan added.“Ryan was caught cold when they fought before. We’d like the chance to do it again.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
The fire that broke out on Devil’s Peak above Cape Town on Tuesday 17 March, forcing between 50 and 70 families to evacuate their homes, was “more or less contained” but would keep firefighters busy for the next few days, Table Mountain National Park fire chief Philip Prins told News24 on Wednesday afternoon.Firefighters worked most of the night to get the fire under control and four helicopters, including a Defence Force Oryx, were called in at dawn to water-bomb the fire.
