The rules are different for Man City! Mourinho aims barb at Chelsea’s title rivals over Bony deal

first_img Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho Jose Mourinho has had a cheeky dig at Manchester City over the signing of Wilfried Bony from Swansea City.The Chelsea boss has questioned the club’s compliance with Financial Fair Play regulations after they spent £28m on the striker.Mourinho said: “He’s a good player, a good striker and if they have the money they can spend the money. If they have no problem with Financial Fair Play, well done.“I think they can only play with 11 unless the rules for them are different and they can play 12.“It looks like the rules are different for them in certain aspects but in this one I don’t think there will be a difference, so they can only play with 11.“If Bony plays and Dzeko is on the bench then I am happy with that. But to have Aguero, Jovetic, Bony and Dzeko is magnificent.” 1last_img read more

ASSAULT VICTIM: ‘I CHALLENGED JUDGE OVER COMMUNITY SERVICE SENTENCE’

first_imgBrave: Dani spoke out after sentenceA WOMAN whose ex-boyfriend beat her for 90 minutes and was given a Community Service Order as punishment has revealed how she challenged the judge after the case.Danielle Kerrigan (pictured right) told Donegal Daily how she waited until after the court hearing to challenge Circuit Court judge John O’Hagan. Eamonn Harkin, 24, from St Eunan’s Terrace in Raphoe beat Danielle Kerrigan black and blue for 90 minutes and only stopped to get a drink of water.Harkin, 24, escaped jail last November after being convicted of the assault in February, 2010 for which he served 240 hours community service. He spent two weeks in jail awaiting sentence.Harkin has been back in court again facing charges that he assaulted William O’Donnell, Mr Kerrigan’s new boyfriend.Letterkenny District Court heard Harkin was ‘traumatised’ because of Donegal Daily’s reporting of the case last November.Judge Paul Kelly fined Harkin €250 for assaulting Mr O’Donnell and €200 for failing to give his name and address to Gardai. He was also bound to the peace for two years.Today Danielle revealed she had spoken to Judge O’Hagan after the November case.“I did ask Judge O’Hagan after my court case in November about the sentence. He told me that he felt 240 hours community service was enough for the crime as well as Mr Harkin doing two weeks in jail,” said Danielle.“We went to the District Court this time and we knew ourselves he wasn’t going to go to jail but we are glad that we got him convicted! He got more of a punishment for punching my boyfriend than for the attack on me.”The Raphoe woman paid tribute to the community in the town for their support.Harkin: Convicted of assault again“Their support has been one of the things that has gotten us through these past three years,” she said.“However I had to say that my experience of the courts has not been good in my opinion. Women find it hard to speak out – but you have to stand up to bullies,” she added.ASSAULT VICTIM: ‘I CHALLENGED JUDGE OVER COMMUNITY SERVICE SENTENCE’ was last modified: June 22nd, 2017 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:ASSAULT VICTIM: ‘I CHALLENGED JUDGE OVER COMMUNITY SERVICE SENTENCE’last_img read more

Bundoran flushes out competition in toilet awareness campaign

first_imgBundoran has been crowned as Ireland’s ‘Think Before You Flush Community Of The Year 2019’.The seaside town was recognised for its efforts to flush out bad loo habits to prevent sewer blockages.The award follows the seaside town being announced late last year as Donegal’s first Think Before You Flush community and becoming the 14th overall community in Ireland to adapt the initiative.  Elizabeth McIntyre, Diarmaid Doherty, Shane Smyth, Cllr Micheal McMahon, Gina Witherow & Aine McIntyre celebrating Bundoran’s awardThe initiative which was a collaboration between Bundoran Tidy Towns and Discover Bundoran was officially launched on World Water Day March 22nd this year and received the unanimous backing of many of the accommodation providers in the town, as well as a number of other businesses to encourage customers and guests to only flush toilet paper down the toilet.Thousands of tent cards and posters were distributed throughout the town to ensure that the message got out at the time and continues to be implemented.Cllr Micheal McMahon collects the award on behalf of the town at last week’s ceremony  An estimated 4,600 blockages occurred across Ireland last year due to inappropriate items being flushed down toilets. Every day people flush thousands of items such as wet wipes, cotton bud sticks, nappies and cotton wool pads down the toilet instead of putting them in a bin. Flushing these items can have a negative impact on internal plumbing in homes and businesses, the wastewater network and our marine environment.Receiving the award on behalf of the town, Councillor Micheal McMahon paid tribute to the businesses in Bundoran who strongly supported “Think Before You Flush” – he said ‘a huge thanks must go to all of the businesses in Bundoran who backed this campaign. It may seem small but flushing other objects down the toilet causes massive issues in pipes and ultimately at the pumping station which then cannot work to its full capacity.‘We would continue to encourage private householders and visitors to only flush toilet paper down the toilet and to dispose of items like nappies, cigarette butts, medicines, baby wipes, sanitary pads etc in a responsible way and not down the toilet.’Bundoran flushes out competition in toilet awareness campaign was last modified: December 9th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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
