After a short corner, Osman jinked past Rochina and fired a low shot that took a big deflection off the unfortunate Christopher Samba.Everton went after a second goal – and it came in the 75th minute.After coming off the bench in the 66th minute for the tiring Gueye, Seamus Coleman won the penalty for his side after a poorly timed tackle from Phil Jones brought the Donegal man down. Baines stepped up and made no mistake as he powered his effort past Robinson.SUB COLEMAN HELPS EVERTON TO WIN OVER BLACKBURN was last modified: April 17th, 2011 by gregShare 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:evertonKillybegsseamus colemanlast_img read more

first_imgDonegal County Councillor Micheal Mac Giolla Easbuig has hailed plans to hire another tourism officer for Donegal.The new post is a joint venture by Donegal County Council and Údrarás na Gaeltachta.The West Donegal councillor said “I believe it to be very encouraging to see the new tourist officer job advertised on the council website. “Over the last number of years, I have raised the importance of branding and marketing our Gaeltacht communities differently from the rest of the county.“I have spoken this last week with senior management in both council and Údarás about the importance of learning from other communities throughout Europe that have focused heavily on tourism as a way of economic recovery and sustaining communities.”He added that tourism can bring benefits, but we must also be very careful and conscious of the cultural, environmental and economic impact it will have on our communities.He added “Generally, it is the business classes that benefit mostly from the tourist industry and I strongly believe that if we are going to look to tourism as a way of economic recovery we, the workers, must benefit as well and not just have seasonal work and expect to receive only the Minimum wage.” Councillor hails new tourism officer plans was last modified: July 11th, 2018 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:councildonegalofficertourismlast_img read more
