What chemistry (or mask) will Gilas try next?

first_imgLATEST STORIES Unfortunately, Gilas suffered an unexpected slip and squandered an eight-point lead in the homestretch, mainly on defensive lapses. It lost the lead and fell miserably to the depleted Iran team which came over without its two top international stars.The losing game against Iran was projected as absolutely perilous: a defeat could reportedly cause Gilas to lose its remaining chance to qualify for the basketball World Cup in China next year.As it would turn out, the Gilas national team still has a slim chance, depending on the results of two remaining assignments, against Qatar and Kazakhstan, in February.Anyway, after the failure against Kazakhstan, which Gilas had beaten in a previous encounter, coach Yeng Guiao humbly owned up to the faults.The PBA, other than release top players, had taken a break to allow the national team to work together with no distraction.ADVERTISEMENT Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum An excited Al Panlilio, head of the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas, assured that they had assembled the strongest pool in Philippine basketball.Nobody bothered to contest the claim.There would be no finger-pointing after the back-to-back defeats against Kazakhstan and Iran.However, it would next surface that lack of team maturity was being singled out as the big culprit.So where does that put coach Yeng Guiao, who inherited the chore as national team mentor from Chot Reyes, following the anomalous bench-emptying brawl in the game between the Philippines and visiting Australia at the Philippine Arena in Bulacan?Good enough that coach Guiao savored a few great moments following the Gilas team’s sensational game against powerhouse China, which managed to escape with a slim two-point win.China and Korea, which would also beat the Philippines, have both advanced and gained slots in the 2019 World Cup in China.Nothing is clear on how the Gilas national squad would prepare for the remaining assignments against Qatar and Kazakhstan in February.Another towering but shallow national squad is definitely out of the picture.How do they dig for better chemistry, rush out a talented outfit with a solid core and character, in so short a period?

FIANNA FAIL DEMANDS MORE GARDAI AFTER MEETING WITH DONEGAL TOP BRASS

first_imgFianna Fáil has reiterated its call for an increase in Garda numbers in the County following a meeting this week with Garda representatives to discuss crime in border areas.Deputy Charlie McConalogue and Fianna Fáil Councillors Paul Canning, Gerry Crawford and Patrick McGowan have met with Superintendent Michael Finnan and Inspector David Kelly in Letterkenny to highlight community concern about crime and policing in border areas.In a joint statement, the Fianna Fáil representatives commended the Gardaí for their recent work in making arrests following a number of burglaries in the Lifford, Raphoe, Manorcunningham and St Johnston areas. However, they re-iterated their belief that additional resources must be allocated to border areas in order to deter crime in the county.“The local Garda force must be commended for their work in the investigations following recent burglaries in East Donegal. However, as a party we feel that the drop in Garda numbers in the County is making it more difficult to have the level of Garda presence needed in border areas to prevent and deter criminal activity. As Garda numbers have fallen, instances of serious burglaries have increased. This is not a co-incidence.”Backing up the party’s calls for additional resources, Deputy McConalogue has outlined figures released to him in Parliamentary Replies from the Minister for Justice showing the sharp decline in the force over the last number of years“In 2008, the Donegal force was at an all-time high of 488 personnel. As of June 2014, there were 404 personnel. Through the same period, eight stations have been closed across the County and many Garda stations are left struggling for essential resources such as enough Garda cars to enable them to effectively police local areas. “Many Garda Stations are also struggling to reliably open for advertised public office hours as the staff numbers are not always available. The loss of 84 guards over six years means a real drop of visible presence and policing on the ground and the Minister must work with the Garda Commissioner to ensure that additional resources are allocated to our County.“While the Gardaí in the County are doing their best with the resources they have it is absolutely clear that the Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald must urgently take action to bring forward Garda recruitment and bring about an increase in Garda numbers in the County and in border areas,” concluded the Fianna Fáil representatives. FIANNA FAIL DEMANDS MORE GARDAI AFTER MEETING WITH DONEGAL TOP BRASS was last modified: July 25th, 2014 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:donegalfianna failGardailast_img read more

DONEGAL GAA STAR RYAN IS APPOINTED ROAD SAFETY CAMPAIGN AMBASSADOR

first_imgDONEGAL GAA star Ryan McHugh has been named the county’s official Ambassador for Road Safety.The Donegal Road Safety Working Group and CLG Dhún na nGall are again joining together to urge drivers to take care on our roads – backed by Donegal Daily.With County teams and Club team at all levels travelling thousands of miles by road each year, supporters are being encouraged to follow their teams safely by driving at an appropriate speed for the unpredictable conditions in order to reduce the risks when driving on our roads. While in 2015 the number of road deaths nationally was at 166 down by 27 on 2014, 11 of those people died in Donegal.Motorists driving at excessive and inappropriate speed are still the major contributory factors in road traffic collisions.Road Safety Ambassador Ryan Mc Hugh told us: “You don’t have to be going over the speed limit to be going too fast.“Players also drive to attend training or travel to matches and sadly we know that there have been far too many fatalities on our roads. Even the best drivers in the world adjust their speed to take account of driving conditions.” Donegal G.A.A. County Chairman, Sean Dunnion said: “There is simply no room for complacency, one death on Donegal’s roads is one too many and our focus continues to be helping to reduce the number of fatalities and serious injuries on our roads.”To date in 2016, a total of 77 people have lost their lives on our roads, an increase of 17 on the same period last year. Far too many people are losing their lives on our roads and it is essential that motorists reduce their speed to improve road safety.Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer, said: “I am delighted that CLG Dhún na nGall and our Ambassador, Ryan McHugh are supporting the ‘Safe Driving for the Football Season’ campaign.“Many Donegal fans travel the roads to attend matches to support their local club and/or county football and hurling teams, but it’s never the right decision to put ourselves, our families and others in harm’s way to get there faster.“We need to remind motorists, as the busy summer football and hurling season is underway, to obey speed limits, reduce speed in inclement weather conditions and allow plenty of time to arrive safely at their destination, always wear your seatbelt, never use a mobile phone while driving, never drive under the influence of drink or drugs and beware of driver fatigue. “The tragedy of all the suffering caused by road traffic collisions is compounded by the fact that so much of it is preventable. I would appeal to all drivers to take a moment to think about the potential effects the risk-taking behaviour may have not just on themselves, but their friends who are with them, on their families at home and on their extended families.”DONEGAL GAA STAR RYAN IS APPOINTED ROAD SAFETY CAMPAIGN AMBASSADOR was last modified: June 8th, 2016 by John2Share 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:Donegal County Councilroad safetyRyan McHughworking grouplast_img read more
