As well as supporting local suppliers, Centra stores also spend €769,500 with businesses in Donegal communities each year.Each Centra store in the county, from Killybegs to Clonmany, is proudly involved in supporting their own GAA club.Mairtin Kelly, owner of Kelly’s Centra Mountain Top Letterkenny, shared his delight with the renewed Centra sponsorship of the Donegal LFGA. Kelly said: “We are extremely proud to support Donegal Ladies GAA. They have done phenomenally well and bring great pride to the county.

Georgia State, the No. 14 seed in the West Region, just ended the game on a 13-0 run to shock No. 3 seed Baylor, 57-56. Georgia State guard R.J. Hunter, the son of GSU head coach Ron Hunter, hit the game-winning three-pointer from way downtown with 2.8 seconds remaining.Hunter struggled much of the day, scoring just two points in the first half. His dad coached the whole game in a rolling stool after tearing his left achilles tendon celebrating the team’s Sun Belt Conference championship last week.This is what happened to Ron Hunter when R.J. made his game-winner. March Madness is amazing.
In the next couple of weeks, the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology will be launching a pilot initiative that will enhance healthcare delivery across the island through the use of technology. eCare will allow a patient to, through the use of technology, interact with their doctor for consultation and advice, without having to leave home to visit a clinic or medical practice. In the next couple of weeks, the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology will be launching a pilot initiative that will enhance healthcare delivery across the island through the use of technology. Story Highlights In the next couple of weeks, the Ministry of Science, Energy and Technology will be launching a pilot initiative that will enhance healthcare delivery across the island through the use of technology.Dubbed eCare, the initiative is being implemented in collaboration with the Universal Service Fund (USF) and the Diabetes Association of Jamaica.This was disclosed by Portfolio Minister, Dr. the Hon. Andrew Wheatley, during his contribution to the 2018/19 Sectoral Debate in the House of Representatives on May 15.eCare will allow a patient to, through the use of technology, interact with their doctor for consultation and advice, without having to leave home to visit a clinic or medical practice.It will facilitate video conferencing between doctor and patient, along with affording the medical professional the convenience of sending prescriptions to the patient’s pharmacy of choice.Dr. Wheatley said the eCare pilot will have a phased introduction at select health centres, adding that 5,000 persons will be selected to be part of the pilot, with their data to be analysed as part of the evaluation process before the nationwide launch of the programme.“I believe that eCare is a game changer, as it will revolutionise the way in whichdoctors and their patients collaborate to manage chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension and heart disease,” he said.He said doctors and their clinical support staff will receive training in the use of the technology and how the technology can assist them in assessing specific parameters such as blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.Dr. Wheatley said through eCare, technology will be used to cut the long waiting queues at public health centres; reduce overcrowding at these facilities; better manage the incidence of NCDs; realise tremendous cost savings and contribute to a healthy society; and put power into the hands of patients to better manage their own health.
