GAA NEWS: BUNCRANA OVERCOME BURT

first_imgBUNCRANA CLG NOTES (28.03.2016)Buncrana 1-14Burt 1-10In the second league outing of the year, Buncrana travelled to Burt for a local darby in which they would run out eventual winners by 4 points. Again Buncrana fielded a mixed side of youth and experience. Buncrana trailed at half time by 4 points but with clever use of the wind, and hard work from midfield and half backs, they created some scoring chances. Players like Peter McLaughlin and Garbhan Friel added great composure during the second half. At one point this was overshadowed by a majestic score from corner back, Mickey Gallagher out near the sideline. The introduction of Shane McClean proved itslef when he struck the equalising score. Other young guns like Aodhan Stokes and Noel McLaughlin offered great youth to this side.Burt 0-6Buncrana1-9A good strong hard working performance from the squad saw Buncrana pull away late in the game to finally shake off a strong Burt side who spurned a couple of good goal chances in each half. A solid defensive platform saw the reserves go in at halftime 0-4 0-2 ahead. Anthony Mcgonagle and Sean o Neil stood out ably assisted by John Cassidy and Ronan Dohert X . Worryingly Buncrana hit ten wides in that half. They made better use of possession after the turn and worked tireously. Ciaran Hegarty selflessness and work rate along with A game changing save from Patrick Duffy in goals were decisive in the outcome. Credit also to minors Ryan Mcelhinney and Conor Odonnell who despite playing a match the day before, played their hearts out and were also part of the senior squad today.Club Membership:Please be aware that club membership is now due.

Operation launched to salvage €1 billion worth of sunken gold off Donegal coast

first_imgAn operation to recover up to €1 billion in gold in the North Atlantic from a sunken passenger ship off Co Donegal is underway. Recovery operation launched to salvage €1 billion worth of sunken gold off Donegal coastAccording to The Times, a private recovery operator is currently on an expedition, named Operation Neptune, to salvage the wreck that lies 500m deep about 130km off the coast of Co Donegal. However, the location of the wreckage means that the cargo does not have to be transported back to Ireland as it is not the property of the Irish state.In October 1940 the RMS Empress of Britain was abandoned after being hit by a Nazi bomber and set ablaze.Two days later, on October 28 1940, it was sunk by torpedoes from the German submarine U-32.If successful, the state has been informed and could be in line for a €75m windfall — but only if legislation is amended to reduce the find’s tax liability, as the company has demanded. Under the Merchant Shipping (Salvage and Wreck) Act 1993 any cargo landed on Irish shores attracts a fee of 7.5 per cent of its value, which would mean a €75 million state windfall.Pat “the Cope” Gallagher has been working closely with the company in order to try to make sure it can take the contents ashore.He has urged the Transport Minister, Shane Ross, ensure the necessary amendments to the legislation are made so that the cargo, if found, can be landed in Donegal.He said: “I will be prevailing on the transport minister to introduce the legislation necessary because the value of the contents will attract a significant benefit for the taxpayer,” Mr Gallagher said.He added: “I believe the state must make every effort to help those expending considerable money on the exploration to land the cargo here.” Operation launched to salvage €1 billion worth of sunken gold off Donegal coast was last modified: May 20th, 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

Stiff Penalties for Non-Compliance with Sugar Labelling, Packaging Standards

first_img Persons could face stiff penalties for non-compliance with the labelling and packaging standards for sugar sold in the retail market. Story Highlights Effective July 1, all sugar being sold to the public should be packaged, sealed, and labelled. Director at the National Compliance and Regulatory Authority (NCRA), Orine Henry, said the Standards Act provides for a fine of $3 million and 12 months in prison.center_img Persons could face stiff penalties for non-compliance with the labelling and packaging standards for sugar sold in the retail market.Director at the National Compliance and Regulatory Authority (NCRA), Orine Henry, said the Standards Act provides for a fine of $3 million and 12 months in prison.She was speaking at a Think Tank held on June 29 at the Jamaica Information Service (JIS) offices in Kingston.Effective July 1, all sugar being sold to the public should be packaged, sealed, and labelled.In addition, all pre-packers must be registered with the NCRA.The move is in keeping with the revised mandatory standards for brown cane sugar, gazetted on December 30, 2016, which outlined the requirements for labelling, packaging and safety of sugar.Chief Executive Officer, NCRA, Lorice Edwards Brown, is appealing for all stakeholders to ensure that they are in compliance by the deadline.She called on retail outlets to remove all products from their shelves that are not labelled. Establishments that are not registered with the entity are also required to remove items.Mrs. Edwards Brown is urging consumers to be vigilant and desist from buying products “where the scooping of the sugar is done from a bag and you cannot attest for yourself that the product was handled in a hygienic manner.”Establishments interested in re-packaging and registering their product should contact the NCRA or the Bureau of Standards Jamaica (BSJ).Mrs. Edwards Brown said that by June 30 a list of registered facilities will be completed and made available to the public. Manager for Standards Development and Certification, BSJ, Karen Watson- Brown, informed that the revised standards for pre-packaged sugar were prompted by changes in the international market.“There is an increased demand for food safety systems and so Jamaica must position itself to compete globally,” she pointed out.As such, she said, it is necessary for the local industry to improve its systems and processes to produce better quality sugar in order to ensure a safe, high quality product for local and international consumption.The revised mandatory standards requires the removal of some grain sizes; inclusion of more detailed labelling requirements; and that facilities preparing the sugar for sale must implement a food safety system.It also states that sugar must not be packaged at the point of sale but must be sold in sealed, labelled packages; and that there should be no foreign matter in the sugar that may compromise food safety or may be hazardous to health.last_img read more
