first_imgFollowing a jam-packed schedule of fundraisers for Paul ‘Diddler’ Dillon and his family last month, the Diddler fundraising committee has announced that €85,600.70 has been raised in a month. Diddler (aged 45) was recently diagnosed with an illness which will require modifications to his family home. But the cooperative community of Newtowncunningham refused to let the family face this challenging time alone. A committee was formed in January to plan a series of fun events to ensure everyone can get the chance to lend a helping hand to Diddler.Last month saw a host of events take place including Monster Charity Concert in the An Grianan Hotel, a 25 Card Drive in Biddy Friel’s bar and the Dash for Diddler 5KA statement from the committee on Facebook read: “It would be impossible to thank everyone individually who contributed in one way or another, so a massive well done to everyone involved.“The committee for this fundraiser is now dissolved and the page will be removed on Sunday. “This just leaves us wishing Paul, Emma and the girls strength and love now and in the future.”Diddler committee reveal over €85,000 has been raised in four weeks was last modified: March 11th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare 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:Newtoncunninghampaul ‘diddler’ dillonlast_img read more

first_imgMohamed Salah is “struggling” at Liverpool because he faces the same post-World Cup burnout problems as Manchester United star Paul Pogba, says Paul Ince.Having swept his way to 44 goals last season, the PFA Player of the Year award and the Premier League Golden Boot, much was expected of an Egyptian sensation during his second year at Anfield.Salah has, however, found the going a little tougher in 2018-19, netting three times in 11 appearances . Article continues below Editors’ Picks Man Utd ready to spend big on Sancho and Haaland in January Who is Marcus Thuram? Lilian’s son who is top of the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach Brazil, beware! Messi and Argentina out for revenge after Copa controversy Best player in MLS? Zlatan wasn’t even the best player in LA! Ince believes an unfortunate injury suffered in a Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid, which then saw him rushed back for international duty in Russia, has left the 26-year-old a little drained.The former Liverpool and United midfielder feels the same can be said of France international Pogba, who has endured a testing campaign back at Old Trafford following a memorable summer in which he helped his country to global glory.Ince told Express Sport : “Yeah, Salah’s struggling, but he’s an outstanding player.“You can’t drop him as you need to keep those three [Salah, Roberto Firmino and Sadio Mane] together.“He was injured at the end of last season and maybe wasn’t fully fit for Egypt.Paul Pogba Manchester United 2018-19“I know Pogba was great for France but he’s not been as impressive for United. That could be because of the World Cup.“I’ve played in these tournaments and they’re far from easy. They’re draining and can be exhausting.“That could be why Salah is struggling and possibly Pogba too.”Liverpool are hoping that Salah will be available to them once domestic action resumes after the international break.They saw their star forward pick up another untimely injury during an outing for Egypt on Friday.Salah scored direct from a corner in a 4-1 win over Swaziland, but was forced off after picking up a muscle complaint.Egypt assistant coach Hany Ramzy told beIN Sports afterwards: “The initial diagnosis, according to the team doctor, is a strong muscle strain. It is not a tear. I think it is not serious.”Jurgen Klopp will be hoping that is the case, with Salah back in England for assessment , while Jose Mourinho can be expected to throw Pogba straight into Premier League competition when United travel to Chelsea on Saturday.last_img read more

first_imgCINCINNATI — A late rally left the New York Mets oh-so-close to their first playoff appearance in nine years.Daniel Murphy had three hits, including a tiebreaking triple in the seventh inning, and the Mets beat the Cincinnati Reds 6-4 on Sept. 24.The victory, combined with Washington’s loss to Baltimore, reduced the Mets’ magic number to three for clinching the NL East title.“It’s fun,” said Murphy, who leads the team with 69 RBIs. “That’s the easiest way to describe it. You don’t need a lot of adjectives.” Or a lot of math, either.New York can wrap up its sixth division crown during a four-game series at Great American Ball Park, where the Mets usually have a good time. Their 24-15 record there represents the best winning percentage by any NL club, including the Reds.“Three games with — I don’t even know how many left — is a pretty good spot to be in,” rookie left-hander Steven Matz said.Matz tried to extend his record-setting start with the Mets, but couldn’t hold a 3-1 lead. He’d allowed two or fewer runs in each of his first five starts — a club record — but gave up a pair of RBI singles by Brandon Phillips and left with the game tied 3-all in the sixth.Murphy’s two-out triple off left-hander Manny Parra (1-2) started a three-run rally in the seventh. Yoenis Cespedes singled for another run, and Lucas Duda followed with his second RBI double of the game.Murphy has hit safely in his last seven games, going 12 for 26 with three doubles, two triples and a homer.“He’s locked in,” Manager Terry Collins said. “When that guy gets hot, nobody can get him out. And it’s coming at the best time for us, too.”Erik Goeddel (1-1) retired the only batter he faced in the sixth. Jay Bruce hit a solo homer off Hansel Robles in the eighth, cutting it to 6-4. Jeurys Familia pitched the ninth for his 42nd save in 47 chances, one shy of Armando Benitez’s club record from 2001.The Mets hoped to regroup on the road after going 3-6 on their first losing homestand of the season. They’re 27-11 on the road since July 1 and have won eight straight away from Citi Field, one shy of the team record.Matz made his debut against the Reds on June 28 at Citi Field and went 3-for-3 in a 7-2 victory with four RBIs, a team record for an inaugural game. He didn’t get another hit until Sept. 24, when he singled in his first at-bat to start a three-run rally against Josh Smith.(JOE KAY, AP Sports Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Son & FatherIn 14 NBA seasons, Jimmy Jackson played for 12 teams. His movement mostly was more about other teams wanting him than teams not wanting him. After all that basketball, though, it was Traevon Jackson’s mom who introduced their son to the game.It was not that Jimmy Jackson did not want his kid on the court. It was that he did not know Traevon existed until he was seven. By then, the boy’s mom, Tammy Winston, was practically mortified when she saw him play basketball.“He was terrible when he first started,” Winston said to The New York Times. “He had no grace. He was just real physical and rough and clumsy.”That could have been because he had been playing football. But the son met his father, developed a relationship, worked hard on his game, and is the point guard on No. 1-seed Wisconsin, which will vie for a Final Four spot tomorrow.But it has not been an easy road. Winston, who played high school basketball, attempted to help her struggling son through pointers and verbal attacks.“She’d always give me little pointers, especially at the free-throw line,” Jackson said. “She’d say, ‘You’re missing them because you aren’t bending your knees.’ I’d be like, ‘C’mon, Mom.’ ”People would chant “Your dad was better” to the young man, almost breaking his spirit.“The negativity would manifest itself to the point where honestly I didn’t even want to play,” Jackson said last year. “I questioned it a lot. I questioned it because I got to a point where I didn’t love the game anymore. I felt like it was more of a job.”That was growing up. At Wisconsin last year, Jackson said he poorly handled some personal situations. “I had a lot of off-the-court stuff,” Jackson said to Fox Sports. “In my mind, I was a good guy. The typical good guy. I would do the right things. But I had a lot of flaws that personally I had to deal with. Whether it be going out, drinking or other things. It was a lot of stuff that I had that wasn’t good. It was my outlook. Instead of it being like a casual thing, it was my outlet thing.”But Jackson seemingly has fought through and is one of the leaders of the team with the best chance to challenge Kentucky for the National Championship. His game is not like his dad’s. Traevon is more of a floor general who can hit the open shot. And he’s a lefty.Jimmy Jackson was selected by the Dallas Mavericks with the fourth pick of the NBA Draft six months before his son was born. He had been a versatile star at Ohio State, where he used size and skill to become one of the nation’s best players.He learned about his son seven years after the draft, and they built a bond. The son joined the father on the road during school holidays and stayed with him in the summers. That passion for football faded to a love for basketball.Fourteen years later, Traevon Jackson has blossomed, but still hears the “Your dad was better” chants from opposing teams. His mom heard them, too.“I’d hear things like: ‘His father was so much better. He’s nothing,’ ” she said to The Times. “There was even a cheer in high school, ‘Your dad was better.’ I would hurt for him because he could never be just Traevon Jackson. He was Jim Jackson’s son.”Traevon Jackson did not let the detractors win. He worked hard and then harder and earned his way to Wisconsin’s starting point guard spot. He broke his foot about six weeks ago and made his return in the Badgers’ 79-72 victory over North Carolina. He played only five minutes, but should be able to log more tomorrow.Jackson said he was not concerned about recovering from his injury because he had overcome so much more. And he reverted to the spiritual upbringing his mom instilled in him.“I honestly had a peace about me,” he said. “I’ve really just been able to surrender everything to God, trust in Him and His plan.” read more

first_imgAccording to Gianfranco Zola, the difficult time the Italian manager is having currently with the Blues is just like Guardiola suffered in his first season with Manchester City.When Pep Guardiola joined Manchester City, his first season proved to be a difficult one.Guardiola and the Citizens ended up in third place of the table with 23 out of 38 games played.But the next year he became a champion with his new team for the first time.And now his side sit first in the Premier League table and have a big chance to become back-to-back champions.For Chelsea’s assistant manager Gianfranco Zola, what Guardiola endured in his first season at City is what’s happening to Maurizio Sarri in Chelsea.MANCHESTER, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 10: Maurizio Sarri, Manager of Chelsea looks on prior to the Premier League match between Manchester City and Chelsea FC at Etihad Stadium on February 10, 2019 in Manchester, United Kingdom.

The direction is always the same.”“Two years ago you were probably asking the same questions to Pep Guardiola. I do remember you asking him, ‘is that the case that you keep playing from the back?’,” he continued.Premier LeaguePremier League Betting: Match-day 5 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Going into the Premier League’s match-day five with a gap already beginning to form at the top of the league.

first_imgSyrian civilians and emergency services gathering at the site where a rocket hit a busy shopping area in Damascus’ Jaramana area, in one of the deadliest rebel attacks on the Syrian capital. Photo: AFPA rocket killed 35 people in a Damascus shopping district Tuesday, in one of the deadliest rebel attacks on the Syrian capital, as fire in the other direction left dozens of civilians dead in an opposition stronghold.The rocket attack came as heavy bombardment killed 38 civilians in the shrinking rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta east of Damascus.State media said the opposition fire hit the area of Jaramana, which residents said was full of shoppers-including some buying presents ahead of Mother’s Day.A taxi driver, who asked not to give his name, said he was nearby when the rocket hit a street known for its cheap clothes and food shops.“The place was full of people buying presents for Mother’s Day,” the 41-year-old said.A nurse in her 30s, who asked not to be named, said the projectile hit a shopping area “next to a security checkpoint”.“The intensity of the blast was terrifying,” she said.Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has brought swathes of territory back under his control since the war started in 2011, with help from Russia and allied forces, including Iran-backed Lebanese Hezbollah militia.He has recently focused efforts on flushing out the last pockets that escape government control in and around the capital, the largest of them being Eastern Ghouta.‘Love one’ in a sackA month-long air and ground assault on the area, which was home to around 400,000 residents, has left more than 1,400 dead.Regime and allied forces have retaken more than 80 percent of Eastern Ghouta and splintered the rump of the enclave into three pockets, each controlled by different rebel groups.In images broadcast on Sunday, Assad congratulated soldiers in Ghouta, and told them Damascenes would “maybe tell their children in the coming decades how you saved the capital”.Clashes shook the various zones on Tuesday, with bombardment by the regime and its Russian ally killing at least 29 civilians in the main town of Douma, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.Another nine civilians were killed in bombardment in other areas of the enclave, the Britain-based monitor said.Washington has voiced concern that the chaos in Syria could allow a revival of the Islamic State group, whose “caliphate” collapsed late last year after three years of international military operations.The jihadists launched a surprise nighttime attack in a southern neighbourhood of Damascus, the Observatory said.Observatory chief Rami Abdel Rahman said the regime was sending reinforcements to retake Qadam, which was attacked from the adjacent IS-controlled neighbourhood of Hajar al-Aswad.The jihadists also have a presence in the nearby Palestinian refugee camp of Yarmuk.An AFP correspondent in Douma reported heavy bombardment through the night from Monday to Tuesday that left ambulances struggling to reach the wounded.At the town’s main hospital, a man walked the facility’s halls with a sack. Medics said it held the human remains of a loved one killed in raids.‘War crimes’After a seventh day of medical evacuations on Tuesday, some 1,800 civilians including 375 patients had crossed over into government-held territory, a medical source said.Tens of thousands of civilians have fled both the intense bombardment of Ghouta and the deprivations of a siege that lasted five years.The ramifications are catastrophic, the UN’s High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al-Hussein told the Security Council, accusing the Damascus regime of “war crimes” in Eastern Ghouta.But Hussein also warned of another humanitarian catastrophe unfolding hundreds of kilometres (miles) to the north in the Syrian border enclave of Afrin.The Turkish army and its Syrian proxies-a motley assortment of jihadists, former rebels and members of other armed groups-seized Afrin from Kurdish forces on Sunday.Turkish military police deployed across the city on Tuesday, as some civilians tried to return to homes and shops looted by Ankara’s Syrian proxies.The two-month offensive has displaced around 100,000 people, most of them to the town of Tal Rifaat further east, the UN has said.On Tuesday, a convoy carrying food, blankets, and other aid was being delivered to thousands of families seeking refuge in Tal Rifaat, according to the International Committee of the Red Cross.The capture of Afrin, one the cantons in the self-proclaimed autonomous administration run by Syria’s Kurds, has been a huge blow to the minority.last_img read more
