A fifth victory will represent their best sequence at the start of a season since 2009 when they won their first six and, like this season, they kept clean sheets in their opening four fixtures.However, City have never kept clean sheets in each of their opening five games so can set a new club record at Selhurst Park.City, though, will not need reminding what happened on their last visit; Palace won 2-1 and Chelsea went on to win the Premier League title.last_img read more

first_imgBRISBANE, Australia (CMC):West Indies were staring at a humiliating innings defeat in the face after an all-too-familiar second-innings batting collapse left them hanging by a thread, on the penultimate day of their four-day tour match against a youthful Cricket Australia XI here yesterday.Trailing by 201 on first innings after watching the hosts convert their overnight 245 for four into 444 all out at the Allan Border Field, West Indies slumped to 125 for seven at the close, still requiring a further 76 runs to avoid a demoralising defeat.Captain Jason Holder was unbeaten on 26 and partnered by tail-ender Kemar Roach on nine, with only Devendra Bishoo and Shannon Gabriel to come.Carlos Brathwaite has so far top-scored with a robust 31,batting at number eight, while opener Rajindra Chandrika and the experienced Marlon Samuels both scored 21.Of the top six, they were the only ones to make it past 15 as two debutant seamers, Ryan Lees and James Bazley, ripped through the West Indies top order to leave the innings in tatters at 59 for six.The 21-year-old Lees finished with three for 37 and Bazley, only 20, claimed two for 39, while leg-spinner Cameron Boyce picked up two for 56.The display will be worrying for West Indies ahead of next week’s first Test, especially coming against a side fielding six players on first-class debut.They were in trouble from as early as the fourth ball of the innings when Kraigg Brathwaite perished without scoring, caught at point by Bazley off Lees, without a run on the board.Left-hander Darren Bravo followed soon afterward for five, nicking a defensive prod at Bazley behind, to leave the tourists on seven for two.Chandrika, who faced 47 balls and struck two fours, then repaired the innings somewhat in a 29-run, third-wicket stand with Samuels who faced 53 deliveries and also counted two fours.Bazley, however, removed Chandrika to a catch in the slips by substitute Tim Paine and with a run added in the next over, Lees removed Jermaine Blackwood without scoring to a catch at the wicket, as the Windies tumbled to 37 for four.last_img read more

first_imgRelay For Life Donegal Committee Members with Cancer Specialist Nurse Teraze Toby and Reverend StewartA glowing tribute was paid to Majella O’Donnell’s brave head shave on the Late Late show by Head of Fundraising for the Irish Cancer Society Mark Mellett. Mr Mellett said that he couldn’t express properly how fantastic her efforts were in raising awareness for the Irish Cancer Society.“She wanted to do what she could do,” he said paying tribute to the €550,000 raised by Majella following her headshave on the Late Late Show. Mark Mellet, Head of Fundraising for the Irish Cancer SocietyThe praise for the wife of singer Daniel O’Donnell came from Mr Mellett yesterday as he officially opened the Daffodil Centre in Letterkenny Shopping Centre.The centre is the first of its kind in the country to be placed in a commercial setting. Visitors from the public can drop in to receive vital cancer information and support.The Daffodil Centre was just about to open in Letterkenny General Hospital before the July floods ravaged the building. With a little help from Harcourt Developments, it was relocated to Letterkenny Shopping Centre without the usual rental fees.“We shouldn’t be here, but we are,” said Head of Fundraising for the Irish Cancer Society Mark Mellett. “It’s a testament to the people of Donegal that we are here today,” he said, praising the determination of volunteers to get the Centre open.Mark Mellett, Head of Fundraising for the Irish Cancer Society praised the hard work of the Daffodil Centre VolunteersLike Majella, Mellet said that the Daffodil Centre volunteers and Relay For Life Donegal fundraisers wanted to do what they could for cancer care and research. He highly praised their efforts.Volunteers at the Daffodil Centre said that people are visiting the space specifically to make a donation to the Irish Cancer Society after they were touched by Majella’s Late Late Show appeal.However, the Daffodil Centre does not accept donations as their services are free of charge. Volunteers could only advise kind supporters how to contribute by other means online or through post and telephone.Mellet also announced that the The Irish Cancer Society will this year extend the Care to Drive service to bring radiotherapy patients from Donegal to Galway. The service previously only transported patients receiving chemotherapy treatment.By the end of October, car transport will be provided for radiotherapy patients from their homes in Donegal to the Cancer Care West lodge at Galway University Hospital.This service will be exclusive to Donegal patients. There are 62 volunteer drivers in Donegal.30,000 people in Ireland receive cancer diagnoses each year. The Daffodil Centre will be there for patients to get information and ask any “silly questions” that they may have, said Mellett. Daffodil Centre Volunteers (from left) Mary C. O’Donnell, Sarah McGee, Caroline Vilamajna“Cancer is something that touches everyone on a personal level,” said volunteer Caroline Villamajna who lost her mother to cancer. Both active and retired nurses, home-helpers and other volunteers were trained and vetted before helping in the Daffodil Centre.Teraze Toby, specialist cancer nurse, and her team of 26 volunteers from the area will provide visitors with information on cancer prevention, early detection, cancer treatments and related side-effects, palliative care services, support and psychological care, practical entitlements and services available.Nursing Services Manager for the Irish Cancer Society Joan Kelly said that the Daffodil Centre being in a commercial space is a “really unique situation and a massive opportunity for the Irish Cancer Society to evaluate very closely.”The Daffodil Centre is open to the public Monday to Friday, 9am -5pm with no appointment or referral necessary. Cancer patients, family members and the general public are all welcome.The Centre would not have been possible without the generous funds raised by Relay for Life Donegal and the support of the Darren Clarke Foundation. The Irish Cancer Society receives 95% of its funding from public donations.This year’s Relay For Life Donegal raised almost €321,000 for research which will ultimately help find better ways of diagnosing and treating cancer for patients across the country.Relay for Life Committee members, volunteers and Cancer Care campaigners were all present to see the opening of a project they had all proudly contributed to.Letterkenny Town Mayor, Cllr Pascal Blake“When you see a day like today it is all very much worthwhile,” said Letterkenny Town Mayor Pascal Blake. He said that it is great for Letterkenny to have the expertise, confidentiality, and consultancy the Centre will provide. He wished every success and good wish to the Rachel McLaughlinTeraze Toby, specialist cancer nurse and Joan Kelly, Nursing Services Manager at Irish Cancer SocietyA wide selection of leaflets are available in the Daffodil Centre.

first_imgTOURISTS lighting a Chinese lantern on a warm summer’s evening could have caused an inferno at Carrickfin airport, it has emerged.The lantern eventually landed in a runway at the airport, not far from fuel tanks.Passerby Michael Connolly witnessed the incident at around 9.30pm on Friday evening. “I witnessed a number of people some distance away from me, on the road adjacent to the airport runway sending the burning lantern into the air,” he told Donegal Daily.“There were two cars involved, one was a red Renault car and the other a dark coloured Volvo estate both with yellow UK rear number plates.“They drove off immediately after sending the burning lantern into the air.”Airport security officer Brian Boyle (pictured with lantern) described the incident as “mindless and stupid.” Mr Boyle said: “The location where the lantern landed is only yards from where thousands of gallons of aviation fuel are stored and the airport is surrounded in dry crisp vegetation which is also highly flammable this time of year.”The airport authorities accept that the incident was probably an innocent thing to do – but it could have had serious consequences. CHINESE LANTERN AT DONEGAL AIRPORT ‘COULD HAVE CAUSED INFERNO’ was last modified: August 19th, 2012 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:CHINESE LANTERN AT DONEGAL AIRPORT ‘COULD HAVE CAUSED INFERNO’last_img read more

first_imgIt was great to see over 150 of our next generation of young athletes out competing on a lovely warm evening at the Finn Valley Centre.From a sprint to a distance race or long jumping to the recently introduced Turbo Javelin, there was plenty on offer for everyone. Indeed, the grit and determination etched over these young faces in the sprints or coming down the home straight after 600m shows the will to win is ingrained at an early age.Whether a child was first or last, each and every one was cheered home by supportive parents and coaches when the most important thing at these ages is that children are participating in and enjoying sport.Thanks to all the clubs for turning out for Tuesdays event and to all the officials who helped out with the smooth and timely running of the programme. Thanks also to the Finn Valley club for hosting the event which acted as a dress rehearsal for the Ulster Childrens Games in a few weeks time. A reminder to clubs that the closing date for these Ulster Childrens Games and U12&13 Championships is this Friday.Next up in a busy athletics calendar is Day 2 of the Donegal Track and Field Championships for Juveniles, Seniors and Masters which will be held in Lifford this Saturday 11th May with a 12pm start.
