Innswood still in charge

first_imgInnswood High stayed atop of Group C in the Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)/FLOW Manning Cup competition after scoring a narrow 3-2 win over Denham Town at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex yesterday.However, Denham Town had their goalkeepers largely to blame, with all three goals coming as a result of goalkeeper errors.Shawn Beckford fired the visitors ahead after 18 minutes, and although Tarrique Campbell equalised on 40 minutes for Denham Town, Ronaldo Grignion restored Innswood’s advantage three minutes later, and Sanjai Nelson extended Innswood’s lead from the spot, 12 minutes from the end.But although Rushane Facey reduced the deficit to one on 90 minutes, the visitors held on for the win and kept themselves atop of the group with maximum 12 points, three more than St George’s.Coach Anthony Thompson says he expected things are getting tougher for his team after their surprise win over St George’s, but after yesterday’s victory he is confident of completing the double against the ‘Georgians’.”It (Denham Town) was a hard game but you saw the fight that we fight and we prevailed,” Thompson commented.”We have to play more aggressively now, and we will have to move the ball more because we are playing some good teams like St George’s on Monday and we have to be prepared for that. Although some injuries are plaguing us we are going to prevail (Monday),” he stated.Innswood went ahead through Beckford, who beat goalkeeper Andrew Brown to a 50-50 ball that Brown looked favoured to win to score in an empty goal. But Denham Town pulled level when Tarrique Campbell beat Tajan Griffiths with a 25 yards free kick. Three minutes later, Innswood was back in front when goalkeeper, Brown, misjudged a ball into the area and allowed Grignion to score from six yards.Twelve minutes from the end, Shemar Guthrie beat Leroy Brooks who replaced Brown at half-time with a free kick from 40 yards though the goalkeeper should have done better.Denham Town got another goal back in minute 90 when Daquan Black was fouled in the area, and Facey dispatched the resulting penalty.last_img read more

Referendum posters are causing road hazards, says Donegal motorist

first_imgA local road user has expressed their frustration and concern over the placement posters in the 8th amendment referendum campaign. The days leading up to polling day have seen an increase in posters from both campaigns on roads across Donegal. Posters calling for Yes and No votes have been placed on many polls and signs in urban areas and along main roads – sometimes two or three per poll.A local motorist says posters are obstructing motorists’ views in certain areas, which they deem to be against campaign poster regulations. In a letter to Donegal Daily, they call on campaign groups to be wary of road users and the law when placing posters.“For the last number of weeks the referendum campaign posters have been increasing there presence around the county. As a professional driver I have had a few close “near misses”. As campaign posters on blind corners obstructing views of motorists. After looking into the rules and regulations of election and campaign posters:“The Road Traffic Acts contain requirements in relation to maintaining clear lines of sight for road users which may impact on where posters can be placed, e.g. not on road signs, at traffic junctions or on roundabouts where they may cause road safety risks. It is an offence to erect any sign or notice that makes a traffic sign less visible to road users (Road Traffic Act 1961, Section 95, Subsection 14).“Today alone I travelled one of Inishowen’s most dangerous roads R238 from Muff to Redcastle counting nine posters of both campaign parties attached to road signs. As well as blind corner obstructions at Tulnaree Carndonagh and around many junctions and roundabouts. “I understand the importance of this referendum to Ireland as a nation but yet again I find it frustrating that the organisers and campaigners cannot abide by the rules set in place. Some of the roads in Donegal are not great at the best of time without these obstructions.“I’m coming from the age group between 17 and 28, which are paying the highest insurance policies in the country as we are seen as the liability, and I myself having known people lost on our roads.“What I am trying to say is that our roads are dangerous enough without people creating more hazardous and dangerous situations with the strategic placement of these posters.”– AnonComments and stories may be sent to [email protected] Referendum posters are causing road hazards, says Donegal motorist was last modified: May 16th, 2018 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)Tags:8th amendment referendumCampaignpostersROADSlast_img read more
