DONEGAL MAN LAST SEEN 35 YEARS AGO DECLARED DEAD BY COURT

first_imgA judge has declared a Co Donegal man dead after an application by his family in court.Eamon Gallagher, who would be 87 on Christmas Eve if he was still alive, was from Roosky, Convoy.He was last seen alive in White Chapel, east London, in 1979. Mr Gallagher left Co Donegal in 1952 to work as a labourer on building sites in London.There had been just one other confirmed sighting of him – in 1962 – in south London by another man from Donegal who recognised him.When he was last seen in 1979 he was carrying a bottle of wine.His younger brother Charles, who lives in Putney in London, brought an application to have Eamon declared dead before Donegal Circuit Court.The application was supported by the only other surviving member of the family, May, who still lives in Roosky and who is now 90.Six other siblings are all deceased.Their barrister Desmond Murphy was also granted an application to have more than 18 hectares transferred to the name of Charles Gallagher.“They have exhausted every route,” said Mr Murphy.“It appears their brother has disappeared completely off the radar.”Searches conducted by Britain’s health and social welfare services had failed to locate Eamon Gallagher, he said.The Salvation Army’s specialist unit and the Irish ex-pat organisation Aishling had also failed to find him.Adverts in Irish newspapers in London hadn’t received any responses.Mr Murphy said his elderly clients wanted to settle their own affairs and wanted the land transferred to Charles Gallagher so that this could be done.Judge John O’Hagan granted the applications, saying the case was “very sad when people leave their home country and disappear without trace.”DONEGAL MAN LAST SEEN 35 YEARS AGO DECLARED DEAD BY COURT was last modified: December 10th, 2013 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:declared deaddonegal circuit courtEamon Gallagherlast_img read more

Bank honours local heroes

first_imgNedbank has helped hundreds of charitiesin South Africa through its Local HeroesProgramme.(Image: Nedbank) Read and Write’ director Roxanne Khan(left) receiving a cheque from Nedbankafter the organisation was chosen by alocal hero.(Image: RAW)Khanyi MagubaneLocal Heroes, an initiative by one of South Africa’s largest banking groups, Nedbank, has seen hundreds of organisations benefit from the award-winning project.“The Local Heroes programme recognises individual employees and clients who volunteer through projects or organisations involved in community upliftment,” says Faith Malete, brand marketing manager for Nedbank.Since it’s inception in 2002, the Local Heroes programme has donated more than R1.4-million to various non-profit organisations across South Africa.Charities, which have benefited from the scheme, include organisations working with the homeless, community sports, environmental programmes, children with learning disabilities and the aged.The project came to life as a staff volunteer programme, where staff members who were actively involved in charities were able to nominate an organisation to receive a R10 000 donation from the Nedbank group.In 2007, following a runaway success within the organisation, Nedbank extended the programme to its clients.Malete says the project is close to the bank’s moral values, “Nedbank believes in uplifting the community. We believe that helping communities around the country will eventually translate into a big picture of helping the country as a whole.”Choosing the right charityA team comprising various department heads within the bank gathers regularly to assess the applications received for the Local Heroes programme.For a project to qualify, it has to meet certain criteria. The nominated person has had to be involved on a volunteer basis with one charity organisation for at least three months.The project is also judged on its scale of community involvement. In addition, the assessment team judges how the individual’s project has served and benefitted the community at large.Once a donation has been approved, Nedbank, through the Nedbank Foundation, channels the money to the charity. Nedbank follows the organisation’s financial records in order to keep track of how the sponsored funds are managed.One organisation which, has succeeded in qualifying for a Local Heroes donation, is the Read and Write (RAW) literacy programme, which helps children with various learning disabilities.The organisation relies solely on donations and the R10 000 Local Heroes cash injection has gone a long way to sustaining its efforts.According to RAW’s director Roxanne Khan, it has been a struggle for the Cape Town based organisation to maintain itself as it doesn’t have a consistent flow of donations.Raw has used the contribution from the bank to resuscitate previously shelved projects, which couldn’t continue due to a lack of funding.New projects will also be started in the Salt River and Maitland communities in the Western Cape province.Girls and Boys Town, an institute of learning for teenagers with learning and behavioural difficulties, has also been nominated by a local hero.According to Malete, it was important for Nedbank to honour the men and women who volunteer their time at such institutions. “To have a group of people who have the type of skill and ability to deal with youngsters is something quite special. For us it was important to give those people support to keep doing what they do.”The institute helps youngsters, who according to the organisation, often arrive at the school with “shattered dreams, sick at heart and often in body too”.Some of the learners have a history of abuse; some have been abandoned or come from extremely poor families. As a result, they tend to perform poorly at school, rebel against authorities and have difficulty in following a disciplined routine.The volunteers at the school offer the learners the opportunities to formulate warm, secure and loving relationships with adults. Many of the children were raised in dysfunctional or abusive homes and never had the opportunity to form appropriate and safe bonds with authority figures.Lesser-known organisations in rural parts of South Africa have also benefited from the Local Heroes programme. The Bongekile pre-primary school in Richmond, KwaZulu-Natal, for instance, started off in the backyard of a small house. After being nominated and approved for funding, it has moved into a building where children from the community have access to sanitary facilities and educational play areas.The “Look Good … Feel Better” programme, which helps women undergoing cancer treatment to regain their confidence, also benefited from the scheme.The programme offers beauty workshops to female patients who are in radiation or chemotherapy treatment cycles at hospitals and clinics across South Africa.In this particular case, Wasiela Ally, a member of the Look Good … Feel Better programme at the Milpark Hospital programme in Johannesburg, was involved in one of the organisation’s workshops, and also happened to a Nedbank employee.She nominated the organisation and one of its volunteers, and they were awarded a R10 000 cheque in July 2007.As a result of the money received by Look Good … Feel Better, two new workshops were started for female cancer sufferers in Durban and Bloemfontein.The Local Heroes programme has also been supportive to unconventional charities through its donation to Bee Courtwise, a community run law project from Johannesburg’s city centre, which provides paralegal services to the community.Bee Courtwise helps the community understand their rights when dealing with the criminal justice system, particularly with cases such as applying for protection orders, maintenance, custody and divorce.Community members are also accompanied to court by volunteers, who help their clients understand legalese and court processes.After a trial is completed, volunteers conduct debriefings with their clients to explain the outcome and allow the client the space to express how they feel about the outcome.Sheryl Serebro, who volunteers her time at Bee Courtwise, was the local hero who nominated the organisation to receive the money.Shining in accoladesIn 2008, Nedbank was recognised for its efforts in helping to uplift South African communities, when it won the most innovative Corporate Social Investment Programme award at the National Business Awards.The category focused on the way that corporates used creative ideas to leverage on people’s skills and ability to benefit the community.The National Business Awards are presented in association with the annual business publication, SA’s Top Performing Companies.Do you have any comments or queries about this article?

Dukes Lehigh Loss Was Bad But Mercer Was Worser

Some upsets aren’t as big as the seed lines suggest; some are bigger. Two years ago, the No. 2-seeded Duke Blue Devils were upset by No. 15 Lehigh in the first round of the NCAA tournament. But Duke was the weakest No. 2 seed in 2012, according to the FiveThirtyEight projections that year, whereas Lehigh was unusually strong for a No. 15. Our model had given Lehigh a 10 percent chance of winning.Something of the same pattern held last season when No. 2 Georgetown lost to No. 15 Florida Gulf Coast in the first round. Georgetown was just the 15th-best team in the country, according to our ratings, and was badly overseeded as a No. 2. Our model gave that upset a 10 percent chance of occurring as well.This afternoon, as a No. 3 seed, Duke lost to 14th-seeded Mercer — but the Blue Devils (and the FiveThirtyEight model) have fewer excuses. In fact, Duke was the strongest No. 3 by some margin this year, according to our ratings and other indices like Ken Pomeroy’s power ratings. Our projections had Mercer with just a 7 percent chance of winning before the game began. read more
