first_img0Shares0000Olympiakos president Vangelis Marinakis, pictured with footballer Eric Abidal in 2014, is one of several dozen Greek football officials accused of forming a criminal organisation and fixing matches © AFP/File / LOUISA GOULIAMAKIATHENS, Greece, Nov 8 – Olympiakos owner Vangelis Marinakis said Wednesday that he will step down from his job as club president “for a few months” to fight charges of match fixing.Greek media reported Tuesday that Marinakis is among 28 people who are to be brought to trial for corruption in Greek football. “I am certain that my innocence with regard to these remaining charges will be demonstrated by the judicial process that will ensue,” said the 50-year-old Marinakis in a statement.“Until the conclusion of the proceedings and for the few months remaining until my full exoneration, I propose to the board of directors of Olympiakos F.C. that the position of the chairman of the board to be taken over by the Mayor of Piraeus and vice-president of Olympiakos Giannis Moralis.”Marinakis, former Greek football federation president Giorgos Sarris, and an ex-legal advisor have been accused of forming a criminal organisation and manipulating results of matches, according to the media.Others facing various charges include former federation members, ex-referees, the owners of Super League clubs Levadiakos and Atromitos, as well as former coaches and players.Olympiakos have won 12 of the last 13 Greek titles and are playing in the Champions League this season.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Casemiro spares Madrid’s blushes against brilliant Brugge

first_imgInstead, Madrid came storming back as Sergio Ramos headed in, before Casemiro claimed a dramatic equaliser in the 85th minute, seconds after Brugge’s Ruud Vormer had been sent off for a second yellow card.“I would like to keep the second half and forget the first,” said Zidane afterwards. “The goals we conceded were laughable.”“The match was historic, the point was historic and the way we played was as well,” said Brugge coach Philippe Clement.After losing 3-0 to Paris Saint-Germain two weeks ago in what was Zidane’s worst ever loss as coach, Madrid will be relieved to have avoided another defeat that would have left them facing their first ever group-stage exit in this competition.But there were no celebrations at the final whistle from those in white shirts after a chaotic performance checked any morale and momentum gained following three consecutive victories in La Liga.“I am not worried about anything,” Zidane said. “We know we are in a worse situation in the Champions League but we keep going.”“We have to do more, we have to do better,” added Ramos.Madrid’s fans whistled the players off at half-time and Zidane made two changes, replacing Nacho, who was injured, with Marcelo and his goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, who was ill, with Alphonse Areola, thrown on for an unforgiving debut.Gareth Bale was left out of the squad completely, with Zidane claiming that both he and James Rodriguez were injured.– Dennis the menace –Madrid looked vulnerable to the counter-attack from the start and after nine minutes they were punished. Two close offside calls went Brugge’s way as Percy Tau was played on by Ramos and then Dennis stayed level with Raphael Varane.The finish was even more fortunate, the ball cannoning off Dennis’ right foot and rebounding off his left, before rolling agonisingly past the wrong-footed Courtois.Luka Modric wanted a penalty for a clumsy challenge by Clinton Mata and then fired wide after a pull-back from Dani Carvajal. In between, a sluggish Eden Hazard weaved through but lacked the acceleration, or perhaps confidence, to finish the run. It was symptomatic of his night.Modric, forceful at one end, was then careless at the other as he was robbed by Dennis, who tore beyond the Madrid defence. With only Courtois to beat, Dennis stumbled again but kept his footing to dig out a lifted finish up and into the net.Zidane made the double change at half-time but Dennis should have had his hat-trick shortly after as Ramos gave the ball away only for Areola this time to shut down the shot.Spared, Ramos then gave Madrid hope. Benzema chipped a cross to the back post where the defender, played onside by the left foot of Mata, headed down and in, VAR checking but allowing the goal to stand.Brugge wavered and Madrid might have equalised when Modric blasted over, with a frustrated Benzema waiting inside him. With six minutes to go, Vormer collected a second yellow card for a late lunge on the excellent Vinicius Junior and from the resulting free-kick, Madrid struck.Kroos’s curling delivery was met by the leaping Casemiro, who headed the ball inside the far post.There were four minutes left for a winner as Benzema ballooned a shot over and Ramos beat Simon Mignolet to a cross. His header though lacked power and a weary Brugge held on.0Shares0000(Visited 19 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Sergio Ramos scored as Real Madrid came back to rescue a 2-2 draw against Club Brugge on Tuesday © AFP / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOUMadrid, Spain, Oct 1 – Casemiro’s late header rescued Real Madrid from an embarrassing defeat at home against Club Brugge on Tuesday as Zinedine Zidane’s side came from two goals down to salvage a 2-2 draw in the Champions League.Madrid were run ragged in the first half by a brilliant Brugge and their speedy striker Emmanuel Dennis, who scored twice at the Santiago Bernabeu and should have completed his hat-trick shortly after the interval.last_img read more

RADIO WARS: BUSINESSMAN’S BID TO TAKE OVER DONEGAL RADIO LICENCE

first_imgA BUSINESSMAN who lost the radio franchise for parts of Co Donegal says he is planning a bid to win it back.Paul Claffey was the man behind North West Radio who held the licence for south Donegal until 2004 when it was awarded to Ocean FM.At the time there were protests about the decision with people taking to the streets. There was a bitter war of words after an Ocean FM commissioned report described North West Radio listeners as “old, conservative and from a lower social class.” It was also controversial with the decision-makers split three votes each with the chair of the BAI casting in favour of the new station.At the time North West Radio was the most popular in Ireland.Mr Claffey continues to run the highly successful Mid-West Radio – but would dearly love to get broadcasting licence back for south Donegal, Sligo and north Leitrim.The process for getting the next licence in 2014 starts later this year. “It is my opinion that we would be very well placed to serve the people of the region for the next licence period,” Mr Claffey told the Sligo Weekender newspaper.He said his MWR station would share content on a new North West Radio station, insisting: “The shared arrangement worked very well before and would be reignited again. It is the ideal option in the current climate when a lot of stations are now losing money.”Sources told donegaldaily.com that Mr Claffey had already put together a consortium to get ready for the bidding process with several “very experienced and respected” individuals from Co Donegal who were prepared to invest in the new station.It’s thought the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland is keen to see some stations merge to save them from going bust in the current economic climate as advertising revenue goes down and continues to migrate to the internet.In that situation, MWR could have the edge on winning the new licence. Some radio stations – including Ocean FM – have been lobbying the Government for a state hand-out, but propping up commercial organisations with taxpayers money would prove unpopular.The possible closure of Ocean FM – if it lost the licence – would see 20 people lose their jobs.Tim Collins, chief executive of Ocean FM (and a director of the troubled newspaper group River Media which publishes three Donegal newspapers) told the Sligo Weekender that the company would bid to keep the licence.“This is our livelihood. There is no way we are going to walk away,” he told the newspaper.

Donegal mums following celebs in eating their own placenta!

first_imgDonegal women are following in the footsteps of A-list celebrities in eating their own placenta.It may seem shocking to some but eating placenta is the most natural thing in the world for mothers, an expert on the process will tell this weekend’s Bump and Baby Expo in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Letterkenny.Donegal Placenta Encapsulation Specialist Caroline Doherty transfers placenta into capsules which can then be taken 1-3 times daily to help support a healthy emotional and physical post-birth recovery. The Buncrana mum-of-seven says more and more Donegal women are choosing the path taken by celebs including Kim Kardashian, Alicia Silverstone and Colleen Rooney in opting to reap the benefits of placenta’s recovery properties in capsule form.“Today mothers are rediscovering the benefits of natural placenta remedies for healing after giving birth.“The placenta is an amazing organ which allows your baby to feed and grow. The consumption of placenta is a potent postpartum remedy and useful preventative care measure for mothers who have just had a baby.“Packed with essential vitamins, minerals and hormones, the placenta is exactly what a new mother needs in the days and weeks after giving birth,” she says. Caroline adds: “Placenta encapsulation makes consumption palatable and easy, and the benefits are profound. It is the only organ that is grown from and functions for two people – mum and baby.“At this weekend’s Bump and Baby Expo Letterkenny I’ll be explaining the benefits of placenta encapsulation and how placenta can also be taken in smoothie form or even used in special tinctures, balms and creams.”The placenta is the organ that connects mums to their unborn children for nine months, sustaining life, feeding, nurturing and cleaning babies until birth.After birth the placenta is expelled and has been commonly disposed of by hospital incineration for many years.However, some cultures have long viewed the placenta as a magical or spiritual organ with a deep bond between the mother and her child. These cultures have often planted, cooked or eaten the placenta in a ceremony of thanks for the blessing of a healthy child. Chinese traditional medicine has been using the placenta in remedies for centuries.Now mums and babies can benefit from the benefits of placenta in Donegal.Caroline adds: “Our clients report many benefits from their placenta remedies including more energy, improved mood, less depression or baby blues, better milk supply, faster healing, clearer skin, faster wound healing, less hair loss and more.”Donegal Encapsulation Specialist Caroline Doherty will be exhibiting and delivering a talk on the process and its benefits at Bump and Baby Expo Letterkenny in association with Browne’s Autos at the Radisson Blu Hotel on August 20 and 21. Bump and Baby Expo Letterkenny, will include eight expert talks each day including:‘Signs of labour’ and ‘What to take in your baby bag’ by midwife Aine McDermott; ‘What to do when a child is choking’ and ‘Choking hazards and what to look out for’ by Niall Clancy, First Aid Aware; ‘Benefits of breast feeding’ and ‘How to best use your baby sling’ by Deirdre Fitzpatrick, Blooming Gorgeous; ‘How Chiropractic care can help mother and baby’ by Dr Julie Szabo, Chiropractor; ‘How to stay fit during and after pregnancy’ and ‘How to ensure good nutrition during pregnancy’ by Neil Barrett, Fit Hub; ‘Baby nutrition and natural healthcare’ by Patricia Swann, Holistic Health Therapies; ‘Benefits of Placenta Encapsulation’ by Caroline Doherty, Donegal Placenta Encapsulation and ‘Taking care of your skin during and after pregnancy’ by Aoibheann Walsh, G&G.For further information Bump and Baby Expo log on to www.bumpandbabyexpo.com or Facebook.Donegal mums following celebs in eating their own placenta! was last modified: August 19th, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:bump and baby expocaroline dohertyplacentalast_img read more

JUDGE SAYS IT WAS WRONG TO GRANT BAIL TO FORMER COUNTY COUNCILLOR

first_imgA judge has said it was wrong to grant bail to a man who has terrorised his ex-partner after being released by the courts.Former county councillor Gareth ReidFormer Donegal County Councillor Gareth Reid appeared in court yesterday as part of long-running court battle. Reid, of Lawndale, Ballybofey, has broken a barring order against his ex-partner on numerous occasions despite being warned to stay away from her.His case was adjourned to yesterday at Letterkenny District Court for a probation report.A previous sitting of the court heard how Reid warned his ex-partner he would ‘put a bullet between her eyes’ after they had a row.Judge Paul Kelly said he was gravely concerned at the content in the probation report.He said Reid was blaming others instead of taking responsibility for his actions and also has serious questions about his attitude.“I’m concerned about his behaviour and he really needs to address the concerns the court has,” said Judge Kelly.The court was told Reid currently signs on at his local Garda station three times a week but this was reduced to just one signing.Solicitor Kieran Dillon said his client had also surrendered his passport and was requesting it back so he could attend a friend’s stag party in the UK.Judge Kelly granted the application and said he could have the passport from today but must return it on July 21st.He adjourned the case until January next year.JUDGE SAYS IT WAS WRONG TO GRANT BAIL TO FORMER COUNTY COUNCILLOR was last modified: July 18th, 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:county councillordonegalGareth ReidJudge Paul Kellylast_img read more

CAPTAIN WHO RESCUED THREE STRANDED FISHERMEN SAYS HE’S NO HERO

first_imgThe fishing captain who saved the lives of three men off the coast of Donegal yesterday has said he is no hero.John ‘Jock’ Harkin was unloading another boat at Leenan Pier when he heard another boat had gone down off Fanad Head.John jumped in his own boat, the Niamh Crone, along with three other men including his son Damien and Sean Kearney and James Doherty. The 58 year old fishing skipper told Donegal Daily “We were unloading fish on Leenan Pier when we heard about the call. We then heard that three men were in the water so we rushed out as fast as we could.“We got to them fairly quickly. Two of them were okay but I honestly thought the third man was dead.“He was a terrible colour and he wasn’t moving at all.“We got them out of the water and got them back to the pier as quickly as we could.” John and his fellow rescuers were first to reach the men who had been forced to abandon their stricken vessel, the St Elizabeth just after 1.30pm.Two of the three rescued men have been named locally as Matthew Kearney and Maurice Ivors.John, from Clonmany on the Inishowen Peninsula, said he is no hero but was just delighted to be able to help save the men.“I don’t think any of us class ourselves as heroes. It’s just what anybody would do.“We didn’t have much time to think about what we were doing. It’s a good thing that someone on board had good eyesight because we got to them fairly quickly. “I wouldn’t like to think what might have happened if they had been in the water much longer.“It could be us in that sea tomorrow and I would like to think that someone would be able to do the same for us,” he said.CAPTAIN WHO RESCUED THREE STRANDED FISHERMEN SAYS HE’S NO HERO was last modified: June 20th, 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:John HarkinLEENAN PIERNiamh CronerescueSt Elizabethlast_img read more
