DONEGAL BUSINESSMAN TAKES FIRST STEPS TO REBUILDING HIS EMPIRE

first_imgOne of Donegal’s best-known businessmen is going back into the hospitality trade.Mr McGee used to own the Clanree HotelHugh McGee was one of the county’s most successful hotel and bar owners employing up to 450 people during the boom.His Clanmaca Group owned a number of properties including the Clanree Hotel as well as a string of bars such as Sister Saras and the Dry Arch in Letterkenny. However Mr McGee, a native of Gaoth Dobhair, had much of his large operation taken over by the banks during the economic downturn.He has been vocal in his criticism of Ireland’s banks comparing one move to liquidate one of his businesses to “the evictions of old.”He famously addressed 100 of his staff in 2010 when Anglo Irish Bank appointed a liquidator to six of his businesses.He declared “Buyer beware – I have not gone away and I have no intention of going away and will fight to the bitter end for the companies I built.” However the well-known businessman appeared at Letterkenny District Court this week applying for a bar license.Trading as Victoria Properties, Mr McGee was asked by Judge Paul Kelly if he had experience in the licensing trade.Mr McGee replied that he had been in the trade for 30 years.Gardai said they had no objection to the license application.Mr McGee’s solicitor Gary Clarke said that he was finalising the paperwork on the licensing application. One businessman who knew McGee personally said “It’s a credit to Hugh that he is still trading and still keen on rebuilding what was a very sizeable business empire which employed an awful lot of people.“I for one wish him all the best and I hope it works out for him.”DONEGAL BUSINESSMAN TAKES FIRST STEPS TO REBUILDING HIS EMPIRE was last modified: January 21st, 2015 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:Clanmaca LtddonegalHugh McGeelicense applicationliquidationlast_img read more

SPORT-WT20-LD IND 3 LAST

first_imgKhawaja, however, could not be contained for long as he Khawaja, however, could not be contained for long as he hammered an erring Jasprit Bumrah for four boundaries in his opening over. The Australians had their aggressive intent clear, so much so that even first change Ashwin was not spared. Finch deposited the star Indian spinner for two consecutive sixes over long on and under pressure, his next ball was wide down the leg side for five runs. Ashwins 22-run over meant Australia had raced to 53 for no loss in four overs. India badly needed a breakthrough to stop the free flow of runs and it was provided by Nehra, who had the dangerous Khawaja caught behind off a fuller ball. Ashwin, brought back in the eighth over, bounced back from a forgettable first over by having David Warner stumped to make it 73 for two. That wicket was Ashwins 50th in the format, making him the first Indian to do so. Steven Smith (2) then joined Finch in the middle but much to the delight of a vociferous crowd, he lasted only six balls two days after smashing an unbeaten 61 against Pakistan at the same venue. Yuvraj Singh, bowling his first ball of the tournament, induced a faint edge of Smiths bat as he attempted a hard slash on a flatter one. India had pulled things back considerably after leaking runs early on. Soon after, it became 100 for four in 13 overs with the fall of Finch. The odd ball keeping low also made life tougher for the batsmen. It was over to Shane Watson (18 not out) and Maxwell to provide the late flourish. Maxwell did his bit with a breezy knock which included a switch hit that went for six over cover off a full toss from Ravindra Jadeja. Big hitters are aplenty in the Australian batting line-up and in came James Faulkner (10) to support Watson. But the pitch getting slower and disciplined bowling by the Indians did not allow the powerful pair to free their arms. Nehra once again was the most economical bowler for the home team. The Australians, however, ended the innings in style courtesy Peter Nevill (10 not out), who smashed a six and four in the two balls he faced. PTI BS PDS PDSadvertisementlast_img read more
