first_imgThree persons are now homeless after a fire believed to be electrical in origin gutted a two-storey dwelling at East Canje, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne).Shortly before midday, smoke was seen coming from a wall close to a fuse box. At the time, Narsha Crandon was at home alone. Without attempting to tackle the fire, she called her husband, Garfield Fyffe, informed him of the situation and urged him to return quickly.Firefighters trying to put out the blazeCrandon said she was in the kitchen when she saw smoke coming from the front of the house in the vicinity of the fuse box.She then fled the house and crossed the road to her brother-in-law’s yard and waited for him to return from the shop.Meanwhile, Fyffe, who operates a block-making business, said he had gone to purchase sand when he was told that there was smoke in the house. He told this publication that he instructed his wife to leave the house.When he arrived, the house was engulfed.After crossing the road, Crandon had called for her brother-in-law, Colin, who told Guyana Times when he heard her cries, there was already thick smoke coming from the building.The alarm raised was also heard by a next-door neighbour; Nita Basdeo. She explained that the shouts did not come from the burning house. “I went upstairs and I hearing she calling she brother-in-law; Colin; me hear she call hard and when me look, before me look at she, me see plenty smoke coming out from over there.”Residents attempted to put out the blaze, but were unsuccessful. Basdeo said she then asked a neighbour to call the Police.When the Guyana Fire Service arrived, the building was already engulfed. The fire department responded with three units and was successful in containing the fire to one building.According to a source close to the New Amsterdam Fire Service, initial investigations revealed that residents formed a bucket brigade and attempted to douse the fire, but after realising that they could not handle it, called the professional firefighters.The source said in such cases, it was better to initially sound an alarm then evacuate the building. Before attempts are made to extinguish the fire, the Fire Service should be alerted.Meanwhile, the businessman estimated the damage at $10 million; however, the building was insured against fire. Neighbours were successful in moving Fyffe’s car to a safe location before he arrived. The building is owned by former Police Officer Patrick Fraser, who now resides in the USA.

first_imgPARENTS and politicians have vowed to fight the closure of two special needs nurseries in Co Donegal.They spoke at a meeting at a Letterkenny hotel last night – as the HSE works to close facilities at Ballaghderg in the town and at St Agnes in Donegal Town.The Donegal County Childcare Committee (DCCC) had the public meeting. “The parents of severe-needs children need support, they need help,” said Gina Grant, a mum of Ballaghderg pupil.“Once these services are gone, they’re gone forever and we can’t allow that to happen.”DCCC held a public consultation last month, asking parents and service providers for their opinion on supports and policies that would be needed if students with special needs were integrated into mainstream preschools.But after the parents of children with complex medical needs addressed the meeting, a number of parents and service providers said they believed the plan was unworkable. Gina Grant says many local politicians are backing their campaign.“I never thought I’d need help like this and I did. It could be someone else in the future and parents and people need to come out and support Ballaghderg,” she said. PARENTS COME OUT IN SUPPORT OF SPECIAL NEEDS SCHOOLS was last modified: June 11th, 2013 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:PARENTS COME OUT IN SUPPORT OF SPECIAL NEEDS SCHOOLSlast_img read more

first_img Wayne Rooney applauds the fans as he leaves the pitch Wayne Rooney was the star attraction as Manchester United and Jose Mourinho continued their pre-season preparations with a goalless draw against Everton.United and England captain Rooney played 52 minutes at Old Trafford as his testimonial against his former club doubled up as a stern Premier League warm-up.Rooney got the chance to play alongside new signing Zlatan Ibrahimovic in a promising attacking formation that also featured Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial. The front pair linked well, with Ibrahimovic often dropping deep.“I said many years ago the perfect partner for a striker is Wayne Rooney,” said Swede Ibrahimovic in an interview aired before the game by MUTV. “He works not only for himself but for the striker and the whole team. I’m absolutely happy to be one of the guys beside him.”Seeing them together was certainly a tantalising prospect for the fans but, despite some fluid moves, chances were few and far between.The work of new manager Mourinho may take some time to bear fruit at United. Attention will now turn to preparations for Sunday’s Community Shield against Leicester and – presumably – the pursuit of Paul Pogba.When or if a deal for Pogba, heavily linked with a world record £100million return to United from Juventus, materialises remains to be seen.For now United are a work in progress under Mourinho. There was little to excite other than the promise of the forward line and the return to action of a rejuvenated Luke Shaw, but nor did Everton expose many weaknesses.Ross Barkley tested David de Gea and Romelu Lukaku headed a gilt-edged chance wide, while Shaw saw an effort deflected past the post and Ibrahimovic shot at new Toffees goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg.In the second half, former Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini headed at Joel Robles.Other than that it was a chance for fans to pay tribute to Rooney, who was donating all proceeds from the fixture to charities.Rooney joined United from Everton 12 years ago and has since scored 245 goals for the club. He will equal the club best of Sir Bobby Charlton – whose England record he has already taken – with just four more.“While I cannot deny it is disappointing I will no longer hold either honour, it was always going to happen one day and I am glad they will belong to Wayne,” said Charlton in the programme.There were plenty more tributes to Rooney in the matchday magazine, including from Mourinho and former managers Sir Alex Ferguson, David Moyes and Louis van Gaal.“I am sure he will provide many more memorable moments for United in the coming years,” said Mourinho.Rooney himself spoke briefly at full-time, saying: “I have spent 12 seasons here and had a lot of success, and there’s hopefully a lot more to come.”Mourinho stuck by his plan to use 22 players, making six substitutions at half-time and the rest as the game wore on. Bastian Schweinsteiger, whose United future is uncertain, was conspicuous by his complete absence from the teamsheet.New Everton boss Ronald Koeman also made a host of changes, including one enforced by injury when Muhamed Besic hobbled off. 1last_img read more

first_imgThis weekend will be yet another busy one for Lifford AC senior and juvenile athletes, with athletes in action from Estonia to Santry to Tullamore.Lifford athletes including Ann-Marie McGlynn right are in action this weekend.Following on from her selection to the Irish Cross Country team last year, Lifford AC’s Anne Marie McGlynn’s will be in action in Estonia, representing Ireland at the European Team Championships.McGlynn will go in the 1500m and has proved herself to now be among Ireland’s leading middle distance athletes. The Strabane athlete deservedly joins a star studded mens and womens team which includes Fionnuala Britton, Kelly Proper, Mark English and Paul Robinson. Everyone at Lifford AC wishes Anne Marie the best of luck this weekend. On Saturday, 14 year old Brendan O’Donnell will represent Ulster at the Tailteann Games in Santry. The Inter Provincial schools competition is the official trial for selection for the Irish Schools team which will compete against England, Scotland and Wales at the Schools International in Cardiff on the 19th July.Representing St Eunans College, Letterkenny, O’Donnell is still only a junior competing at intermediate level and has been selected for Ulster based on his recent outstanding hammer throw performances which included gold at the recent All Ireland Schools Championships.Also on Saturday, five young athletes will make the journey to Tullamore to represent Lifford AC at the All Ireland Childrens Games. In the Under 9 Long Jump and 60m, Ballybofey’s Martin Mbuli and St Johnston lad Joshua McGlinchey will be in action while in the Under 10 boys, Lifford’s Oran Gallagher will partner Harvey Mullen in the 500m and Carrickmore’s Patrick Sweeney in the Long Jump.These young athletes have already done themselves, their parents and club proud by qualifying for these Championships which will hopefully be the first stepping stones to representation at the All Irelands for years to come. At these young ages, the key to success is enjoyment first and foremost and if medals make their way northwards on Saturday evening, this will be an added bonus to the whole experience.  ATHLETICS: LIFFORD AC ATHLETES IN ACTION FOR IRELAND, ULSTER AND CLUB was last modified: June 20th, 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:LIfford AClast_img read more

first_imgWest Donegal is mourning the death of one of its great characters following the death of Neily Mulligan of Magherclogher, Derrybeg.The late Mr Mulligan, 95, was a member of the renowned Aisteoirí Gaoth Dobhair for many decades and was on stages throughout Ireland over the years in both dramas and pantomimes.A great character, he was widely known and much respected throughout Ireland and his wit and humour remained with him down the years. Just over three years ago at the age of 91 he was on the stage at Ionad Cois Locha, Dunlewey as part of a tribute night to the late Prionsias Ó Maonaigh and he raised the roof with his wit and humour in a comedy sketch with long time stage companion Francie Diver of Gort a ‘Choirce.Neily was also a renowned footballer in his day and lined out often for Gaoth Dobhair on many pitches throughout the county.He was the President of the Bunbeg Fianna Fail branch and earlier this year met former Taoiseach Brian Cowen at Ionad Naomh Padraig in Dore.He will be laid to rest in Maghergallon Cemetery today following 11am funeral Mass in St Mary’s Church, Derrybeg. He is survived by his wife Mary, four sons, three daughter and an extended family.EMDONEGAL REMEMBERS NEILY MULLIGAN – ACTOR, CHARACTER AND GENTLEMAN was last modified: November 28th, 2011 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:Neily Mulliganlast_img read more
