Tyrone thought they had the lead in the game as they went two points ahead on the half hour mark.But Donegal stunned the Red Hand county with a Martin McElhinney volleyed goal and a super Colm McFadden point to lead 1-08 to 1-06.The game has been marred by a number of off the ball incidents during play, with Donegal captain Michael Murphy hauled and hit off the ball a number of times.It’s not a pretty game in dreadful conditions but Donegal do lead. They had a blistering start with three unanswered points, the pick of them from Frank McGlynn.Tyrone then got a goal from Darren McCurry. Donegal kept ahead until Sean Cavanagh took them into the lead with a good point.But them McElhinney’s goal and McFadden’s point has swung things Donegal’s way.HALF-TIME BUST-UP AS DONEGAL LEAD TYRONE was last modified: May 17th, 2015 by John2Share 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:donegalTyronelast_img read more


first_imgLough Anna outside Glenties.A public meeting was held last night in Glenties by the Save Lough Anna group. Over 250 people from Glenties, Ardara,Narin,Portnoo, Rosbeg and Fintown areas packed in to the community centre in Glenties.There was a lot of anger in the room towards Irish Water and their proposal to decommission one of the best the best raw water source in the whole North West.As the people in attendance made their points it became clear that this was a fight worth having and the room voted unanimously to join and fight the closure together.One of the main points of contention was that Irish waters proposed alternative supply was from a source which has to be treated by multiple chemicals rather than the natural spring lake of Lough Anna.“Just leave Lough Anna alone” was the words said most as this water source has been supplying these areas since 1925 with top quality drinking water.One of the things we want is for Irish Water to reassess the whole situation with the help of locals so they can realise how passionate the people of the area are about their quality drinking water.At the meeting a sub group of 25 people volunteered to sit and plan the way forward from here.The next public meeting will be with all our elected representatives.PUBLIC MEETING HEARS ANGER OVER PLANS TO CLOSE LOUGH ANNA WATER SUPPLY was last modified: June 25th, 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:GlentiesIrish WaterLough Annalast_img read more

Muzaffarpur shelter home case: Journalists, politicians, protest Patna HC’s ‘gag order’ on media

first_imgA day after the Patna High Court directed that the media should not publish any information related to the Muzaffarpur shelter home rape case, journalists, politicians and members of civil society on Friday protested it saying “it’s an exercise to gag the media”.The Patna High Court is monitoring the Muzaffarpur State-run shelter home sexual abuse case of 34 minor girls that was exposed in a social audit report of Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS) submitted to the government this March.“Under the circumstances, till the investigation is completed, all the print and electronic media are hereby restrained from reporting anything with respect to the case, more particularly, with respect to the investigation already undertaken and/or which is likely to take place as it may seriously hamper the investigation of the case. The State government and the CBI is directed to see that the above order is complied with everybody”, said the division bench of the Patna High Court comprising chief justice Mukesh R. Shah and justice Ravi Ranjan in a three-page oral order.The court had also pulled up the investigating agency CBI for not submitting the status report and the sudden transfer of CBI SP, J.P. Mishra. The court further asked the CBI to explain the progress report in a “sealed cover” on August 27, the next date of hearing.“How can the media be prohibited from reporting any information in the Muzaffarpur shelter home case? It smacks as a gag order and reflects the Emergency era. If media did not report this case, the honorable Supreme Court would have not taken cognizance of the case”, senior Rashtriya Janata Dal leader Shivanand Tiwari told The Hindu.Noted academician Nawal Kishore Choudhury said that the “Patna High Court should reconsider its order of the blanket ban on the freedom of speech and expression which is essential in any democratic set-up.“I think what the Supreme Court had said on the issue that identity of the victims should not be revealed must be maintained but how can the media be refrained from publishing any report on it? It is only because of the media that this Muzaffarpur shelter home rape case has come to light”, Mr. Choudhury told The Hindu.Similarly, former director of Patna-based A.N. Sinha Institute of Social Sciences and social thinker D.M. Diwakar said, “The Patna High Court should revoke its order…media has been only in the role of a facilitator.”Senior journalist K.K. Singh said that the “court order is highly condemnable and it should not have happened. It is only because of the media this sexual exploitation of minor girls at Muzaffarpur shelter home funded by the State government has come to light and even the Supreme Court had taken notice of it because the media published reports on it”.Former editor of Hindi daily Hindustan Sukant Nagarjun told The Hindu that “it’s an effort to censor the media, and it’s a black day for the freedom of speech, a direction towards Emergency days has been given”, he said before adding, “if the media would not have reported it, the infamous fodder scam would not have come out”.Political observer and editor of Bihar Times.Com Ajay Kumar too expressed his shock. “It reminds us of the Emergency days when the media was gagged. How can the media be asked not to the public any report regarding Muzaffarpur shelter home rape case? It’s in the public interest that the media reports what is happening in the case”.last_img read more
