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

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
