COUNCIL SEAL OFF FIELD OVER THREAT TO ANCIENT DONEGAL WOODLANDS

first_imgThe field has been blocked off by the councilRESIDENTS in Convoy have today praised the actions of Donegal County Council staff after a man threatened to chop down 200-year-old trees in the area.Council officials moved in this morning to a site near the Green Fields development.This followed a number of incidents in recent days where several men have said they plan to set up a camp there. The varied trees in the area – some 200 year old oaks – were threatened with destruction.Sinn Fein councillor Cora Harvey today asked council officials to rush through Tree Preservation Orders to prevent the plants from being chopped down.“Basically a number of men have arrived in the field with caravans in recent days,” said one local mother.“They left again, but one of them said he’d be back on Saturday and that they were planning to set up a camp there. “I believe in letting people live and let live but this man said they were bringing a chainsaw and they were going to cut down the trees in and around the field.“This is ancient woodland. Many trees are more than 200-years-old and it would be a disgrace if this were to happen.”Sinn Fein councillor Jack Murray said he had also received calls about the trees.“Councillor Harvey took immediate action to make sure the trees are protected,” he said.Council officials arrived at the field at 11am and began placing bollards at its entrance to prevent any illegal encampment from taking place. “They moved very quickly and we are grateful to the local councillor and to the council staff for their swift response,” said another local man.Cllr Patrick McGowan said later that he had also been in touch with the council in order to secure the site.COUNCIL SEAL OFF FIELD OVER THREAT TO ANCIENT DONEGAL WOODLANDS was last modified: July 19th, 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:COUNCIL SEAL OFF FIELD OVER THREAT TO ANCIENT DONEGAL WOODLANDSlast_img read more

Half-time: QPR 1 Charlton 0

first_imgMatt Phillips’ fortuitous goal on the stroke of half-time put the home side ahead at Loftus-Road, where Jack Robinson is making his QPR debut.Left-back Robinson, who was signed from Liverpool in the summer of 2014 and suffered a long-term knee injury last March while on loan at Huddersfield, had an encouraging first half.Both teams struggled to create chances before Phillips swung in a cross from the right towards Junior Hoilett. The Canadian failed to make contact and the ball crept into the net at the far post.The best opportunity before that fell to Rangers, but after James Perch collected Phillips’ clever pass and crossed from the right, Sebastian Polter was unable to apply the finishing touch.Troubled Charlton had another let-off when Tjaronn Chery’s left-wing free-kick ricocheted off Perch into the arms of keeper Nick Pope.At the other end, Alex Smithies pushed away a shot from Callum Harriott before Rod Fanni headed wide from Harriott’s free-kick.QPR: Smithies; Perch, Onuoha, Hall, Robinson; Henry, Luongo; Phillips, Chery, Hoilett; Polter.Subs: Ingram, Kpekawa, Faurlin, Petrasso, El Khayati, Gladwin, Washington.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Married to girl who accused him of rape, Indian paddler Ghosh picking up pieces

first_imgEDS: Updating after adding Ghosh’s wife quotesNew Delhi, Aug 6 (PTI) His life thrown haywire by a rape allegation, leading Indian table tennis player Soumyajit Ghosh has married his accuser four months after his career nose-dived owing to the crisis. Everything that could go wrong has gone wrong for the 25-year-old in the year he attained a career-high 58th in the International Table Tennis Federation rankings. In March, he was accused for rape by an 18-year-old, that led to the two-time Olympian and India’s youngest ever national champion hitting “rock bottom”. Four months on, he has not even felt the racket in his hand, is heavier by more than 10 kgs and is a married man. “They say a sportsperson in India has to go through a lot to achieve something. The grind prepares you for the worst but what happened with me four months ago hit me hard and hit me out of nowhere. I did not know how to deal with it,” Ghosh told PTI. “Everyone thought about the girl. That she was young. I was young too. If she was a minor, I was 22 when we started dating. I am still young. Having said that, there is no point looking back. I rather look ahead. Hope my court case is over soon and I get back to training,” said the skilful player, who will be “dearly missed” at the upcoming Asian Games in Indonesia.Ghosh was playing in Germany in March when he heard about the FIR filed against him by the teenager in Barasat, West Bengal. Fearing arrest on arrival in India, he chose to stay back in Europe and stayed in “three-four different countries” before returning home in May.advertisement”It was only during that time, I found out who were actually my well-wishers. I was devastated. I was at the peak of my career, playing for a good club in Germany and then something like this happens. “I would not name them yet but I survived that phase because of just two people and my parents of course,” he said. In fact his teammates — the veteran Sharath Kamal, G Sathiyan, Harmeet Desai — also stood by him. If it was not for the rape allegations, Ghosh would have gone with the team to the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, where the contingent came up with a best-ever performance. “TTFI, the players were all there for me. All was going wrong but their support kept me going. After CWG, the team went to World Championship straight and lost a close match to Croatia. Sharath bhai called me and told me ‘we would have won today if you were around’. It made me feel that I was still needed.” In the big year for Indian sport, he will end up missing the Asian Games as well. “The target has to be a third Olympics. But right now, it is all about getting done with the legal issues. I have gained a lot of weight also. The comeback will be tough but I have to find a way to overcome this,” said Ghosh, who qualified for the London and Rio Olympics. The Indian team is stronger than ever but Ghosh remains an integral part. “Like Sharath, he is a big match player. He has the experience to pull off close games. We hope to have him back soon,” said foreign coach Massimo Costantini. Ghosh’s legal troubles could be over soon, going by what his wife, Tulika Dutta, said at the reception in Kolkata today.”I have no idea about the legal formalities but I will speak to the lawyer and ensure that my husbands future is not jeopardised. Its a fresh beginning for both of us and we will do our best to overcome the misunderstandings and live happily,” she said. PTI BS TAPBSlast_img read more
