first_imgTYRONE started this match by giving a guard of honour to the All-Ireland champions – but that’s where the generosity stopped in this National League Division One clash at Healy Park in Omagh.Donegal are down to 14 men for the second half after Murphy was sent off towards the end of the first half.The hosts took the lead in the first couple of minutes, goalkeeper Niall Morgan coming up the field to point from a free kick. There were some scrappy challenges early on, one one occasion Tyrone’s Stephen O’Neill holding onto the ball on the ground well after the whistle as the Red Hand county attempted to disrupt the Donegal play.Donegal drew level with a Colm McFadden point, again from a free in the seventh minute.Tyrone then had a goal chance, rattling the upright before Higgins pointed to give them the lead again, with Cavanagh pointing in the 15th minute to extend the lead to 0-03 to 0-01.Michael Murphy then followed up with a stunning point from out on the right after twisting and turning the Tyrone defence. Jim McGuinness on the sidelines appeared upset with the officials as Cavanagh appeared to over-run the ball. Tyrone went on to score a fourth point from a subsequent free given to them.Murphy then hit the upright with a 21st minute free, leaving the score four points to two for Tyrone.But he didn’t miss from play two minutes later, McFadden winning the ball and laying it off to the Glenswilly man for another wonderful point.Donegal started getting into a decent rhythm, with the officials finally taking action against Tyrone players for off the ball hits on Donegal players, and Patrick McNiece went into the book.Ryan Bradley, who had a good first half, then saw a chance of an equalising point turned away by the Red Hand keeper. However Murphy then pointed the 45 to tie the sides at four points apiece in the 28th minute.Just before the half hour mark keeper Morgan pointed from another free, with McLoone joining Murphy and McHugh in the book.And in the 33rd minute Tyrone extended the lead to two points.Ross McWherrity then ran through on goal, was dragged to the ground and the referee awarded a penalty. Murphy missed the subsequent penalty and when he went to follow up he was adjudged to have fouled a Tyrone defender.And he was shown a red card and sent off.Despite one Donegal player clearly being punched in the face in the melee that followed, the referee took no action against Tyrone.And as the players headed for the tunnel at half-time, Donegal No2 Rory Gallagher could be seen remonstrating with the referee.Half-time – Tyrone 0-06, Donegal 0-04.ALLIANZ NATIONAL LEAGUE HALF-TIME: TYRONE 0-06 DONEGAL 0-04 was last modified: March 3rd, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:ALLIANZ NATIONAL LEAGUE HALF-TIME: TYRONE 0-06 DONEGAL 0-04donegal v tyroneHealy ParkNational League Division OneOmaghlast_img read more

first_imgTDs have slammed the “dreadful state” of Donegal’s road infrastructure, saying that the road network is “crumbling underneath the pressure of traffic and lack of investment.”Fianna Fáil TD Robert Troy says the failure by the Government to invest in roads infrastructure has resulted in poor conditions on local and regional roads across the country.The Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Transport, Tourism and Sport made the comments in advance of Fianna Fáil’s Dáil Private Members Business debate which calls for a significant increase in funding for roads maintenance. The motion is set to be debated in the Dáil later this evening. Deputy Troy said: “Many regional and local roads are in a dreadful state as a result of the Government’s failure to invest in roads infrastructure.“A recent report carried out by the National Oversight and Audit Commission (NOAC) found that almost 70% of regional roads have serious structural and surface defects.“This has led to serious safety concerns for road users and increased maintenance costs to motorists.“Over the last 5 years the Government has on average provided Local Authorities with less than half the amount of funding they need to maintain their roads. This is despite a commitment made in the Programme for Government to increase the capital budget for regional and local roads by approximately 50%. The Government has failed to deliver on this commitment and the end result is terrible surface conditions for road users’ right across the country. “At least an additional €163m is needed each year to maintain our road network to safe standard. The motion we have put to the Dáil calls on the Government to significantly increase funding for regional and local roads through the Capital Investment Plan. It also calls for a full response to the findings of the NOAC and a detailed plan to address the issues and defects identified in this report.“TD’s from all sides of the house are inundated with complaints from road users about poor conditions on local and regional roads. There is an onus on us all to come together and hold the Government to account on this issue. Fine Gael and their Independent colleagues must deliver on the commitments they made through the Programme for Government,” Troy concluded.Troy’s Fianna Fáil colleague Donegal TD Pat the Cope Gallagher added: “There is a particularly urgent need for additional resources for Donegal roads as the roads network is currently crumbling underneath the pressure of traffic and lack of investment.”Donegal TD Charlie McConalogue says: “Defects in our roads infrastructure have serious repercussions for road safety, leading to increased accidents and collisions.“This issue is as much about saving lives as it is about infrastructure. “Too many lives have been lost on Donegal roads and a concerted effort must be made to make the necessary improvements to ensure our roads are as safe as possible.TD: Government’s failure to invest has led to Donegal’s crumbling road network was last modified: February 13th, 2018 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:fianna failrobert troylast_img read more

first_img3 December 2009Improved healthcare, especially relating to HIV/Aids topped the agenda of a meeting between President Jacob Zuma, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe and businessman and philanthropist Bill Gates.The Presidency said on Wednesday that Zuma and Gates discussed the need to scale up the prevention of HIV and Aids particularly following on the policy change made by the President on World Aids Day.Bold, life-changing policiesSpeaking at the commemoration of World Aids Day on Tuesday, Zuma announced bold and life-changing policies. He said that as of April 2010, HIV positive people, with a CD4 count of 350 or less, would now receive anti-retroviral (ARV) treatment.Zuma also said pregnant HIV positive women with a CD4 count of 350 or with symptoms, regardless of their CD4 count, will now have access to treatment. Pregnant women, not falling in this category but who are HIV positive, will be put on treatment at 14 weeks to protect the baby.“Amongst the issues discussed was the importance of the prevention of mother to child transmission of HIV, as well as the need to look at male circumcision as a means of prevention,” said the Presidency.Zuma noted that the issue was being looked into but highlighted that it needed to be communicated carefully to avoid giving an impression that circumcised males are immune to HIV.Pre-exposure ProphylaxisGates informed Zuma about Pre-exposure Prophylaxis, a new initiative which proposes to test everyone and start all those that are diagnosed with the virus on ARV’s regardless of their CD4 count.The two also discussed strengthening the management of HIV programmes, especially the use of global funds and introducing management/business approaches to HIV prevention programmes like the Gates Foundation run programmes in India.Gates also met with Motlanthe in his capacity as chairperson of the SA National Aids Council, to discuss specific matters related to South Africa’s HIV and Aids programme.Source: BuaNewslast_img read more
