Bleak Venture: European Union Dashes African Migrants’ Hope

first_imgFor over 500 years, Africa has been the epicenter of some of humanity’s worst moments in history.  War, poverty, slavery, disease and environmental destruction dominate the public perception of the continent in which humanity began. Over and over again, research has proven that the African continent is the birthplace of civilization, language, art, music and the place all of human ancestors began their great journey to every nook and corner of the globe. A Chilean-born American naturalist, poet and popular writer depicted in a recent report about his first visit to Africa:  Ask a child anywhere in the world to name kinds of animals, and it’s no surprise to hear the names of the great beasts that dwell in the Savannah’s and deep, dark jungles.  African animals are symbols of nature itself and for adults that mystery and awe are not lost to time and adulthood.  Yet, the reality of life in Africa for Africans is often drastically contrasted.  Africa and her inhabitants have been plagued by thousands of years of struggle.  From the Romans, to the Persians, to the French, English, Spanish, and Americans, the world has come to Africa to drink her rivers, log her forests, mine her minerals and exploit her people.  Let alone the Chinese who are on massive exploitative ventures.The desire of many Africans to migrate to Europe in the midst of war, poverty, disease and human suffering has been trapped as the European Union tightens its borders alongside the Mediterranean Sea. Europe that professes to be a continent devoted to the tenets of human rights, democracy and deeply rooted culture of Christianity as well as a citadel of free movement has turned a blind eye on thousands of African migrants mostly young people crammed into rickety smugglers’ ships to drown right in front of its doorstep without any assistance.This contentious immigration crisis has led to the death of over 3,000 migrants in this year alone and experts are predicting an expected rise.  According to a new report from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) Europe is being labeled the most dangerous destination for “irregular” migration in the world.   Another shocking statistics from the IOM in its compilation of data since 2000 indicated that an average of eight “irregular” migrants die each day.  All the more so, last year October an estimated 500 African migrants died in a shaky boat tragedy off the Italian island of Lampedusa while attempting to enter Europe.  In spite of all the efforts instituted by an unsustainable Italian search-and-rescue initiative after the Lampedusa calamity, the Italian authorities have proclaimed that more than 2,500 African migrants are known to have drowned or gone missing in the Mediterranean since the beginning of this year. Even as the death toll of desperate African migrants rises in the Mediterranean,  coupled with uprising in some North African countries and ferocious human rights abuses,  the European Union has put into effect a limited joint border patrol codenamed “Operation Triton.”  This operation, managed by the European Frontex border agency that replaces the Italian Mare Nostrum operation which rescued on average 400 migrants a day with an aggregate of 150,000 since the boat tragedy off the Italian island of Lampedusa, has absolutely no search and rescue operations across the Mediterranean and limited resources within 30 miles patrols of the Italian coast.As the European Union builds the walls of fortress higher and higher with tougher regulations, it seems that the immigration crisis is becoming a stalemate with gross violation of certain provisions of the Geneva Convention that give asylum entitlement to those fleeing persecution, including religious, racial, national and political identity or beliefs.  Moreover, as one of the cradles for the promotion of fundamental human rights,  most especially the right to life, the European Union should not and must not implement bizarre and harsh regulations to the detriment of  already poverty-stricken migrants fleeing from some of the worst atrocities ever known to human history and in search of greener pastures  and a better way of life as measured by the colonial masters. The European Union must come to the realization that African migrants are not risking their lives and making the deadliest and most dangerous sea crossing for nothing.  As the old African adage goes, “The snake cannot run out of its hole for nothing”.  Consequently, the European Union must understand that it is part of the problem and not just an ordinary bystander with protective gears shelling it face with censorious comportment towards African migrants.Furthermore, the European Union must in the truest sense accept the fact that countless number of African slaves through their sweat, blood and tears labored very hard without any compensation and some even died in the process to build Europe’s wealthiest nations with almost all of the raw materials taken for little or nothing from the African continent.  The European Union needs to know that its vast wealth derived from Africa, especially during the colonial period, where they governed, enslaved and enriched themselves at the expense of the continent’s forefathers and indoctrinated many Africans to believe in their way of life.  In addition, the European Union must recognize irregular African migrants crossing the Mediterranean Sea in overloaded boats to a safe haven in Europe deserve the right to live just like anyone else.Howbeit, no one expects Europe to carry all of Africa’s burdens because of its deeply rooted history on the continent.  Nowadays, what is expected isn’t just aid to destitute Africans without traceable impact or chronicled  and voluminous reports about the continent’s lapses, pitfalls and challenges, but a more holistic and realistic picture.  The European Union has got to comprehend that Africa merits  a mutual relationship, fair trade, and exchange of ideas,  especially in the areas of science, technology, engineering and other educational related initiatives.In this 21st Century, when the world is like a click of a mouse, the European Union ought to stop humiliating irregular African migrants and provide best alternatives to resolving many longstanding conflicts as well as societal vices.  Together, Europe and Africa can find a common front in addressing migration across the Mediterranean. It is about time that the European Union realizes that one day Africans will be able to hold their heads high as they combat the wrongdoings of the past through their own imagination, creativity, and culture.  The best days in Africa’s history are in her future and every African must begin to look inward to realize their own potential and believe that they have the power to change the future of Africa to be one ripe with opportunities.About the author:  Mr.  Stephen B.

More inmates taught anger management

first_imgThirty-two inmates from the New Amsterdam Prison were recipients of certificates on Friday which indicated their successful completion of a 12-week Anger Management Course.A participating inmate receiving her certificateAccording to the Department of Public Information (DPI), the programme which commenced on July 12, 2018, was conducted by Solutions Training Consultancy and Counselling Services (STCCS) and marks the fourth batch to graduate for the year in Berbice. The graduation ceremony was held at the Prisons’ Conference Hall, Penitentiary Walk, New Amsterdam, Berbice.The 10 women and 23 men, dressed in gowns, sat patiently before gracing the stage to collect their certificates. Among those graduating were convicted and remand prisoners.Officer-in-Charge, Superintendent of the New Amsterdam Prison, Deoraj Gyandat, remarked that the initiative undertaken by the STCCS has contributed tremendously to the lives of the inmates. He noted that since the beginning of the sessions, his officers did not encounter any challenges and have since seen great improvements from the participants.“The programme is a testimony to our commitment towards our mandate which is safe custody and retraining of inmates… we want persons to be reintegrated into society and live as law-abiding citizens,” the senior officer said.In addition, Gyandat congratulated the inmates for completing each session and encouraged them to practice what they have learnt after they are reintegrated into society. “I want you to use and spread this knowledge and be good role models,” Gyandat added.Managing Director of Solutions Training Consultancy and Counselling Services, Will Campbell highlighted that the lessons taught were much more than just learning how to manage anger. The course, he said, was planned to expose the inmates to “a well-designed rehabilitation and social re-entry programme,” while citing that the topics have helped the participants explore various issues which cause individuals to experience difficulty managing their emotions.Campbell, who is also a psychologist, said those who were involved in the three-month programme were also encouraged to adjust new ways of being, by adopting new ways of thinking.The fifth batch of the rehabilitation initiative by the STCCS is expected to commence shortly.last_img read more

Plans afoot to scare all year

first_imgAnd they’re planning on giving the moaning ghouls and screaming corpses regular employment, making Molar Manor a regular attraction, available for special events for corporate groups, cocktail parties and birthdays. They’re even inviting film companies to take a look around and use them as a backdrop. According to those in the haunting industry, Molar Manor has already taken on a life of its own and has a chilling reputation. If Kivett and Esacoff make it year-round, it will be one of a handful across the country offering patrons a chance to scream their way to a good time 12 months a year – and the only one in California. “There are between 3,000 to 5,000 seasonal haunts, which are open in October, but only a few year-round,” said Leonard Pickel, editor of Haunted Attractions magazine, which hosts its own convention of freak fans. “People build and attend haunted houses for the shared experience,” he said. “When I built my first haunt, not only was I able to see people’s reaction, but both of us got an adrenaline rush, them from being scared and me from being able to scare them. “A lot of people start by decorating their house for trick-or-treaters, then they get more elaborate and it takes over their front yard and back yard and sometimes the garage, until their spouse says `no more.’ Then the person has to make the choice of either scaling down or jumping into the professional ranks, where they find out it’s not an easy undertaking,” he said. Kivett and Esacoff are already looking forward to an open house in June when they hope to debut the renewed manor. They plan on keeping the charity weekend that Singer established to raise money for the Foundation for Children’s Dental Health and other youth health services Sept. 30 and Oct. 1, then have it open as a commercial haunted house the rest of the Halloween month. “We even want to decorate it for Christmas,” Kivett said. “There’s so much you can do.” While they are making some changes, they want to let the community know Dr. Singer will remain in his post as a greeter at the front door. “He’ll be there to remind people of the rules,” Esacoff said. “Basically, don’t touch the creatures and they won’t touch you.” For information on Molar Manor, call (661)702-9393 or e-mail molarmanor@earthlink.net. carol.rock@dailynews.com (661)257-5252160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The dentist, who shares the couple’s affection for things macabre, offered to show them the warehouse. They were stunned and excited at the same time. “This was the answer to what we were looking for,” Kivett said. “Last year, the UPS guy couldn’t even get his truck off our street, there were so many people. We knew it was time to move on. We couldn’t do that to our neighbors again.” It didn’t take long before a checkbook came out and the manor changed hands. They’ve already ordered a new attraction and are working on new designs to draw shrieks and shudders from the crowds. VALENCIA – It’s not unusual to see a gravestone with a cherub looming over a cemetery, but this cherub has her hands over her eyes, a warning to those entering the spooky surroundings of the 5,000 square foot warehouse. To Denise Larson Kivett and Ralph Esacoff, the cherub was another kind of angel – one that brought them a dream come true. Kivett remembers growing up in a household where Halloween was king – her parents and brother dressed up to scare trick-or-treaters. As she grew up, she continued the tradition with her children, holding Halloween events of legend in her Canyon Country neighborhood, culminating in a 2005 haunted house that drew 500 people by word-of-mouth only. So when she and friend Esacoff visited TransWorld, a national convention of “haunters” who live and breathe Halloween, they knew it was time to go bigger and better. last_img

COMMUNITY ALERT: WARNING ISSUED AS MAN’S HOME BURGLED AS HE ATTENDS GRAVEYARD MASS

first_imgA gang targeted a man while he was at a graveyard mass and stole a large amount of gold jewellery from his home.The disgusting incident happened on Sunday morning last when the man left to attend the graveyard mass in Killygordon.Gardai have recently warned people to be vigilant as they attend masses. The three man gang entered the man’s home on the main Lifford to Castlefin just minutes after he and his wife left their home.CCTV at the man’s home showed the couple left their home at 10.31am and the gang entered the house at 10.44am.The gang ignored all electrical items including a laptop computer and instead headed for gold jewelry which they could sell on easily.The man, who owns a café in Lifford, revealed the jewelry belonged to his wife’s sister who died last year and left it to them. The man also revealed how he thinks his small dog may also have been attacked by the gang as it was found terrified hiding under a bed.Gardai are studying the CCTV and are trying to identity the gang.The man feels the gang may be local and may have ben watching his movements.“They were in my house just minutes after I left so I feel they knew our movements. I can’t say to much but the Gardai are studying the CCTV,” he said.He appealed to members of a local charity cycle who may have been passing his house to contact him if they noticed anybody at his house.

Homeless Saints may march to L.A.

first_img On Friday, Benson issued a statement wondering what all the fusswas about, that no decision had been made. Much of the where-will-the-Saints-end-up parlor game has focusedon San Antonio, but let’s be real. The NFL has learned its mistake in Jacksonville, where never mind the publicly-funded stadium and last season’s Super Bowl, they’re covering seats this season because they can’t fill them. San Antonio is the 37th-largest television market in the UnitedStates – 15 spots better than Jacksonville, but sandwiched between Salt Lake City and Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo-Battle Creek. Tagliabue, who has all but said he doesn’t want a team in San Antonio, isn’t the only one. You can bet the Cowboys and Texans don’t and neither do the NBA’s Spurs, who have had a tough go despite winning three titles in seven years. All of this has helped push the Saints issue to the front burner. Tagliabue, who formed a committee of eight owners to consider the Saints’ future, will address the subject with full ownership this week. He’ll then attend the Saints’ first game in Louisiana next Sunday in Baton Rouge, where he’ll meet with state and LSU officials about the possibility of playing games there and at the Superdome next year. “The immediate priority is 2006,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said. Quite a bit more quietly, there are rumblings again in San Diego. The city’s legal and political quagmire has left the Chargers increasingly skeptical that they’ll get an initiative for their stadium development proposal on the ballot by next November – let alone that voters will pass it. The Chargers and city attorney Michael Aguirre have sparred over whether the February deadline for getting the measure on the ballot is real. City officials are concerned enough to have floated the idea of letting the Chargers speak to other cities within San Diego County, something they’re prohibited from doing until January 2007. Of course, a few miles farther north, opportunity awaits. “It’s hard to say whether the deal in San Diego will ever materialize, but they’re certainly welcome in Anaheim,” said Anaheim city councilman Harry Sidhu, who knows as well as everyone else that Chargers owner Alex Spanos is one of Anaheim mayor Curt Pringle’s biggest benefactors. The upshot is that there’s currently a lot more intrigue about who is coming to Los Angeles than what’s happening here. The Coliseum has been taking care of mundane matters such as approvals of building permits and financing mechanisms and then patting itself on the back for what other cities would simply call doing business. About all the Coliseum has to work out with the NFL is matters of compensation, which they’ve only been haggling over for 18 months. And just where is Anaheim? It’s further behind the Coliseum on stadium plans, according to Glat, but the process isn’t as cumbersome since it would be built from scratch rather than a renovated historic monument and – left unsaid – it’s Anaheim the league is dealing with, not Los Angeles. What’s significant about Anaheim is the city no longer seems to be in a rush to capitalize on skyrocketing land values. The city didn’t balk at pushing a decision back, from this week until perhaps next March, after once saying it didn’t want to wait past last May. Also, Sidhu seems to have softened his stance somewhat. After hijacking a press conference last winter to announce that the city shouldn’t sell its 40 acres to the NFL for anything less than the market value of residential property – an estimated $150 million – he now believes a fair price is the land’s commercial value, for which it is currently zoned. That pencils out to a little more than $100 million – or about nine figures more than the NFL was hoping to pay for it. “As long as they’re willing to pay that price, I’m in support of that,” said Sidhu, who knows the five-member council would have its three votes without him. “I’m going with very frugal numbers for commercial property. It’s quite, quite reasonable.” There’s still plenty to be worked out, but it’s quite possible that after giving it the old college try in New Orleans and Baton Rouge, the Saints will be moved into the Coliseum, which if there isn’t another nine months of tail dragging, could be ready for the 2009 season. By then the Chargers could be headed for Anaheim. Then again, this is Los Angeles, where the NFL has been absent for 11 seasons and counting. What’s the hurry?

Everybody’s favorite candidate seemed to be the New Orleans Saints – and that was before Katrina hit. The only thing the hurricane has done has made it more likely. The questions about the viability of the New Orleans’ market that were being debated before Katrina are now conceded. While Commissioner Paul Tagliabue has maintained that he’d like to see the Saints be a cornerstone for the rebuilding effort in New Orleans, what happens after this season – or after next? What will be of New Orleans then? Saints owner Tom Benson, who if you didn’t know made his money selling cars in San Antonio then you’d guess it now, had an eventful week. He met with the NFL’s top in-house counsel Jeff Pash last Sunday and Monday. On Monday night, he fired his lieutenant and lead negotiator Arnold Fielkow, who had the temerity to suggest – publicly and privately – that the Saints commit to New Orleans. The mayor of San Antonio said Benson wanted to talk with him about a permanent move, to which the mayor of New Orleans said he wanted the Saints back, but not the owner. Benson returned the compliment by filing notice with the state of Louisiana that the club was terminating its lease for the team’s state-built practice facility, which costs the team $1 per year. The NFL has just put off making a decision – again – on where it wants a new stadium in Los Angeles. The Coliseum Commissioners, no longer jumping on their soapboxes, shrug their shoulders at having to wait some more. In Anaheim, nobody seems to be concerned any longer that a big fat parcel of land is burning a hole in their wallet. What’s the hurry? center_img There doesn’t seem to be any on either side of the fence when it comes to where the NFL will build its state-of-the-art stadium in Los Angeles, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t any shuffling and hustling. When the NFL owners meet this week in Kansas City, executive Neil Glat plans to give an update on what’s happening in Los Angeles – if the owners get around to it, of course. last_img read more

Onion King takes his last ride in beloved Valley realm

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “Dad would have wanted one last look around,” said Felix DeGeyter, the eldest of Al’s three sons, standing with the rest of the family in front of the farmhouse built in 1930. Felix smiled and patted his shirt pocket. Inside was a packet of onion seeds he was going to slip into his dad’s coffin. The Onion King would have wanted them along on his last ride, his sons said. Al was 5 when he started helping his dad, also named Felix, farm the land he bought after moving his family from Belgium to America in 1924. “There wasn’t a hell of a lot here then – just a railroad track and street car on Sherman Way,” Al said in an interview 15 years ago, lamenting the loss of farmland to development. While his dad worked the land, young Al sat behind a vegetable stand on Sherman Way, selling onions and eggs to people riding the streetcar. When his father died, Al climbed up on the tractor to work the land while his own young sons took turns selling onions, eggs, walnuts and tomatoes to people driving by. In addition to his own farm, Al leased 40 more acres across the Valley to grow his produce, mainly onions, and hired local teenagers to help. One of them was Don Drysdale, who went on to a Hall of Fame career as a pitcher with the Los Angeles Dodgers. “You should have seen him throw onions,” Felix said. “He didn’t work with us that long, though – about a week, I think. Picking onions was a lot tougher than throwing them.” Through the years, none of Al’s three sons or seven grandchildren showed any interest in following in his footsteps. So Al kept farming until he turned 80 and couldn’t get on and off that tractor anymore. By then, he had become a familiar figure to tens of thousands of motorists traveling Sherman Way. He was also well known in the farming community as the Onion King, selling his onions in the produce market downtown to supermarkets all over Los Angeles. Chances are if you’ve ever had a slice of onion on a hamburger, it came from Al’s farm. He kept his vegetable stand open until 2000, but finally had to close that down, too. For years after that, people would still knock on the door asking whether there were any onions or tomatoes for sale, said Al’s widow, Dodie, who hasn’t decided whether to keep the farm or sell it to developers. Al would spend days sitting on the tailgate of his old pickup truck in the driveway, selling tomatoes he had bought from someone else. “Maybe four or five people would stop by in a week, but dad didn’t care,” Felix said. “He just liked sitting there talking to people.” Telling them how it was being one of the last independent farmers in the San Fernando Valley. Dennis McCarthy’s column appears Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday.

You’re all set! Out of love and respect, the hearse taking one of the San Fernando Valley’s last independent farmers to his final resting place Monday made a detour. Al DeGeyter – the Onion King – had one final stop to make. The hearse pulled into a dirt driveway on Amestoy Avenue at Sherman Way in Van Nuys and slowly made a loop of the 3-acre farm that Al had worked for 75 years. It drove by his tractor, the 100-year-old red barn and the fields that Al plowed every day until 1999, when he turned 80. Past the walnut trees and chicken coops. And past his old onion machine and last tomato stand. last_img read more

DONEGAL LEAGUE: ALL YOUR REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES

first_imgDonegal Junior LeagueReports Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionMilford United 3 Rathmullan Celtic 0Milford won the big derby battle at Moyle View in tough conditions. Milford got a dream start when PJ Hagan put a delightful ball over the defence for Gary Merritt to rattle home from a tight angle after just 15 seconds. Rathmullan playing with the wind pressed hard for an equaliser but failed to create any clear cut chances. Milford went two up on 66 minutes when Gary Merritt pounced on a defensive error to drill home. Substitute Peter Doherty tapped home from two yards on 85minutes to complete the scoring. Best for Milford were Paddy People’s, Johnny Logie and Gary Merritt. Kildrum Tigers 1 Donegal Town 1Played at Station Road Kildrum took the lead after 33 minutes when Declan Curtis squared to Reece Laird who made no mistake from 6 yards. Donegal Town equalised on 41 minutes from a corner kick which was poorly defended. Donegal Town had the wind behind their backs in the second half and had a couple of great chances to go ahead but John Roulston made a couple of great saves.Glenea United 1 St. Catherines 2In windy conditions for football it was the home side that started the brightest despite playing against the strong breeze. St. Catherine’s came more into the game as the half progressed but were finding it difficult to create any chances. They then took the lead on 35 minutes when the home defence failed to deal with a free-kick into the box and Brendan Maguire fired home from close range. In the 2nd half Glenea pressed hard for an equaliser and came close on a couple of occasions. Glenea went two down on 80 minutes when David Conwell was played in and he slotted home from the edge of the box. Glenea pulled goal back on 88 minutes when Darren Mc Geever’s corner went all the way into the net. Team efforts from both sides. Referee: Ed Moore.Cranford United 3 Gweedore Celtic 3In a reverse fixture Cranford and Gweedore shared the points at An Screaban. Gweedore took the lead in the 20th minute when Ciaran Ferry headed in Paul Gallagher’s corner. They should have increased their lead through Diver and Gallagher but their efforts came off the post and crossbar. The away team hit Gweedore for two quick goals early in the second half first through Mc Veigh and then Black. Gweedore upped their game and equalised through Dan Mc Bride from a Brendan Devine throw. Gweedore then hit the front when Thomas Diver chipped the keeper from twenty yards for the goal of the afternoon. With eight minutes left Seimi Friel levelled the game following an error in the home defence. Gweedore almost stole it in injury time when Sean O’ Donnell, on as sub, saw his effort cleared off the line. Overall a draw was a fair result in very difficult conditions. Best for Gweedore: Dan McBride and Chris Mc Fadden. Best for Cranford: Seimi Friel. Referee: Paddy Martin.Cappry Rovers 1 Drumoghill F.C. 0 This game was played in poor conditions in Cappry. Drumoghill had a strong wind behind them in the first half and pressed hard to go in front but the home team defended well. Cappry were dangerous on the break in the first half with Alan Patton going close on a couple of occasions but both his efforts went wide. Benny Bonner’s 25 yard free kick on thirty five minutes just skimmed over the crossbar. Cappry held out to keep the game scoreless at half time. The breakthrough came in the 53rd minute when Benny Bonner’s corner found the net. In the 57th minute Benny Bonner chipped the Drumoghill keeper Mc Cauley from 40 yards but his effort came back off the post. Drumoghill pressed hard to get level but the Cappry defence dealt well with the pressure. The closest Drumoghill came was when Liam O’Donnell got free in the box but his effort was cleared of the line by Gary Dunnion. Drumoghill kept pressing but couldn’t get through the Cappry defence. Referee: Kevin LogueWatson Hire Division OneWhitestrand United 2 Copany Rovers 2On a cold bleak January day this was a real relegation six pointer at Mc Garvey Park. Whitestrand started the game off on the front foot and had Copany on the defensive. Ryan Mc Cleary was inches away from getting the opening score on the board. Against the run of play the Copany attacker broke and was taken down by Paul Lynch and the referee had no choice but to award the penalty. David Graham easily dispatched the penalty sending the keeper the wrong way on 22 minutes. Then Copany broke up the pitch and scored when Darragh Brogan calmly slotted past the keeper. This was harsh on Whitestrand. The second half started much like the first with the Whitestrand on the front foot. Whitestrand kept pressing for a goal that just wouldn’t come. The Copany resistance was finally broken when Paddy Sheridan broke up the wing and crossed for Paul Lynch to calmly slot past the keeper. Whitestrand had finally made the breakthrough and they got the equaliser that their endeavour deserved when Gary Duggan scored with a towering header into the top corner. It ended with honours even. Keadue Rovers 2 Dunkineely Celtic 0Keadue Rovers got back to winning ways with this important victory over Dunkineely Celtic at Central Park. The game was played in tough conditions with a gale force wind throughout. Dunkineely had the first chance with a close range effort which was well saved by Ciaran Sharkey in the Keadue goals. As the half went on Keadue began to impose themselves more on the game. Keadue took the lead deservedly on twenty seven minutes when Packie Mc Gonagle’s cross was headed in by Hugh Yank Boyle from the edge of the area. Dunkineely had a great chance on forty two minutes but once again Ciaran Sharkey made a good save. Into the second half and Dunkineely had a lot more possession. They were unlucky on forty eight minutes with a header which was just wide of the target. Keadue then began to get more possession around midfield and created a few chances. On sixty eight minutes they made the game safe when a high ball wasn’t dealt with and Sean Yank Boyle scored. They almost made it three when Adrian Hanlon’s free kick came close on seventy minutes. Dunkineely had a good closing ten minutes with plenty of the ball and had an effort cleared off the line but Keadue held firm for the victory. Best for Dunkineely were goalkeeper John Mc Mullin and Andrew Mackey while best for Keadue were Cian Boyle and Packie Mc Gonagle. Referee: Mick Lagan.Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. 1 Curragh Athletic 0Due to a water-logged Rab’s Park Kerrykeel ‘71 had to switch their home fixture to Tri-a-lough. A great game of football was played by two attacking sides and credit must go to both teams in what were terrible conditions with heavy rain and high winds. Kerrykeel started the New Year with the best possible result and a hard earned three points. Curragh had a great chance to take the lead through Calvin Bradley but his shot was well saved by Brendan Friel. The ‘71 started to win the midfield battle and on eighteen minutes Cathal Martin played in Johnny Friel who brilliantly rounded the keeper only for the referee to flag off-side. Kerrykeel should have went in front on the stroke of half time when Fergal Friel beat two men only to see his shot fly inches wide of the near post. The second half was a ping pong battle with both teams going at it hammer and tongs and it was Johnny Nanny who put the home side in front on sixty eight minutes after great work from his strike partner Colm Mc Conigley. Curragh, to their credit, pushed the ‘71 till the end and forced Brendan Nanny into a string of fine saves. Referee: John CoyleCT Ball Division TwoDeele Harps 2 Bonagee United 3Deele welcomed Bonagee to The Athletic Grounds on a challenging day for football. In an evenly contested first half Deele took the lead on 25 minutes when a neat flick from Barry Curran sent Shane Gallagher free and he cooly finished to the bottom corner. Bonagee equalised on 40 minutes when a Darren Hunter free kick was met by Noel O’ Donnell whose glancing header deceived the Deele goalkeeper. The key turning point was in the 65th minute when a Deele defender was harshly adjudged to have handled the ball in the box resulting in a penalty and red card. The spot kick was scored by Frank Mc Brearty. The ten men of Deele rallied again and equalised within 2 minutes of the restart when Darren Gillespie hammered home from inside the box. Bonagee registered the winner on 80 minutes when Peter McNamee’s cross found Aidy McLaughlin and he shot past Deele’s keeper. The home side continued to press but were disappointed in the end not to get something from the game.Letterbarrow Celtic 0 Raphoe Town 3(No Report Submitted)Ballybofey United 1 Glenree United 3Glenree had a fruitful venture to Finnside on Sunday afternoon. After falling behind to a Damien Glackin goal which separated the sides at the interval Glenree rallied after the break. They scored three without reply from a home side who have not been having the best of things lately despite promising so much before the Christmas recess. Glenree now move on to ten points with Ballybofey still on twelve having added nothing to their account since the turn of the year.Eany Celtic 2 Convoy Arsenal 2It was two of Eany’s young guns who got the goals that gave Eany a good start for 2015.. It was the table topping visitors that got on the score sheet first with a headed goal by John A. Kee on 15 minutes. They got a second from Jason Elliot ten minutes later when he followed in after a free kick that hit the crossbar. Despite going two goals down Eany never lost their shape and got a goal back just before half time when John Rose fed a pass for Conor Burke to shoot to the net. Both teams had chances in the second half to add to their tallies but both defences stood firm. John Rose capped a fine performance by laying on the perfect pass for Thomas Gallagher to fire home the equaliser in the 85th minute.FAI Junior CupEvergreen 3 Kilmacrennan Celtic 1Kilmacrennan Celtic’s FAI Junior Cup adventure is over for another year. Having qualified for the National stages of this prestigious competition they travelled to Kilkenny on Sunday to play Evergreen F.C. Despite falling behind they never gave up and after going two down they scored through Michael Mc Laughlin. Having to score another left them vulnerable at the back and they lost another goal before the end. Although defeated they were in the match until the last five minutes and will now concentrate their efforts back on their League campaign as they chase promotion to the Premier Division of the Donegal Junior League.Downtown CupRamelton Mariners 3 Mulroy Celtic 4Cranford United Reserves 1 Glencar Celtic 4Glencar hosted Cranford in Rathmullan on a very cold day. The first chance of the game came on 15 minutes with Mark Graham winning the ball to cross for Seany Houston to head narrowly wide. Glencar opened the scoring on 20 minutes when Garvan Grieve fed Jason Doherty who finished well. Jason Doherty doubled Glencar’s advantage when Steven Browne did very well to square for Doherty to tap into the empty net. Cranford rallied and were unlucky not to get a goal back from a corner only for the ball to be cleared off the line.Glencar started brightly in the second half with some good passing but there was no end product as conditions worsened. Glencar finished off the game as a contest mid-way through the second half, scoring two quickfire goals through Browne. Cranford were awarded a penalty which Jaydee stepped up and slotted home with the last kick of the game. Best for Cranford were James McBride and Jaydee. Best for Glencar were Mark Graham and Seany Houston.Keadue Rovers Reserves 1 Glenea United Reserves 1Keadue and Glenea played out a draw in the home team’s final group game of the Downtown Cup at Central Park on Saturday. The game was played in poor conditions with wintry showers and a gale force winds. Glenea went ahead slightly against the run of play when a ball cleared out of the defence was lost by the home midfield and a good ball was played through to Ryan McFadden who beat the offside trap and rounded the keeper for a tap in. Keadue responded well to falling behind and were level within five minutes. Good work from Paul Yank Boyle saw the ball to Sean Yank Boyle who fired low to the corner. Ciaran Boyce in the Glenea nets made a superb stop but James Ferry was there to tap home the rebound. The home side remained on top for the last ten minutes of the first half without forcing the keeper into a save. In the second half Keadue had the benefit of the wind but it was Glenea who were sharper in the opening stages of the half. Keadue brought on a few substitutes mid-way through the half who won them more possession and Sean Yank Boyle was prominent. A fine effort from Aidan Gillespie on seventy five minutes was again brilliantly saved by the Glenea keeper and ten minutes from the end Keadue’s Luke Neely was played through but his shot was very well saved. Glenea battled all the way to the end securing a draw despite Keadue dominating. Best for Glenea were keeper Ciaran Boyce, Padge McGee and Kevin McFadden while best for Keadue were Sean Yank Boyle, Damien Hanlon and Cian Boyle.Referee: Barry Hunter.Castlefin Celtic Reserves 2 Tullyvinney Rovers 4Tullyvinney took the lead after seven minutes. A cross found Matthew Grant and his excellent volley gave Castlefin keeper Simon Mc Glinchey no chance. Castlefin equalised two minutes later when Matthew O’Rourke found Brian Dooher who shot past Nigel Hegarty in the Tullyvinney net. James Mc Menamin could have given Castlefin the lead with a 25 yard strike but for an excellent save from Hegarty. Tullyvinney then had two good chances to take the lead before half time with Garvan Tinney and Matthew Grant both going close.Castlefin started the second half the brighter with Keith Nelis and Gavin McNulty each having good chances. Tullyvinney took the lead again on 61 minutes after a mix-up in the Castlefin defence, Matthew Grant tapping home from a yard out. Grant got his and Tullyvinney’s third a minute later. Good work in midfield from Gavin Mc Brearty set up Grant who availed of the space to finish from the edge of the box. Matthew O’Rourke pulled one back for Castlefin on 67 minutes after Tullyvinney failed to clear the ball in the box. Castlefin searched for an equaliser but failed to make their chances count. Tullyvinney got their fourth on 76 minutes from the penalty spot, Daniel McNulty stepping up to finish calmly to wrap up all three points. Best for Castlefin: Brian Dooher. Best for Tullyvinney: Matthew Grant. Referee: Andrew MullanOrchard F.C. 4 Curragh Athletic Reserves 2In an entertaining game it was Curragh who opened the scoring on forty minutes when a mistake in the Orchard rear-guard was punished. Orchard replied with minutes when some good work down the right by John Boyle was finished off from close range by Niall Bonner. Orchard started the second half bright and Niall Bonner added two goals in the fifty and fifty fifth minutes to put Orchard in front. Curragh never gave up and where back in it on the seventy fifth minute when Bernard Lafferty slotted home from close in. Curragh came close on a couple of more occasions but could not find a way past Tommy McLaughlin in the Orchard goal. Orchard wrapped up the game in the eighty fifth minute when John Boyle scored from close range after some good work by Francie McGinley. Best for Orchard: Tommy McLaughlin, Paddy McLaughlin and Niall Bonner.Erne Wanderers 0 Drumbar F.C. 2Erne Wanderers hosted Drumbar F.C. at the Lakeside Centre on Saturday in absolutely atrocious conditions in the Downtown Cup. It was a day to forget for the hosts as a terrible performance saw the away side take all three points. The away side hit the front on the half hour mark when Erne got caught trying to play out from the back and the ball fell to a Drumbar player 25 yards out and he lobbed the ball into the net with the keeper stranded. Erne missed two open goals and hit the woodwork four times, this added to a couple of saves from the away keeper held the home side scoreless. A counter-attack on the hour mark finished the home side off. A good result for Drumbar. Referee: Seamus Mc Groary.Fintown Harps AFC 1 St. Catherines Reserves 1Fintown hosted St. Catherines in the Cup on Saturday at Pairc Achla. In the first half Fintown took control creating a few chances. Shan McMillan sent a great ball to Aaron Thompson who scored but it was disallowed. St.Catherines hadn’t any goal attempts in the first half.In the second half, with it starting to snow, both teams came out fighting. St Catherines scored through Aaron Walsh to go in front. In the dying minutes of the game John McFadden fed Shan McMillan and he levelled the match.
