Wife pleads for assistance after husband dies at sea

first_imgA mother of six is pleading for public assistance after her husband died at sea in April.Narainee ChunilallNarainee Chunilall of Number 56 Village Corentyne, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne), is seeking help to ensure that five of her six children can complete school.The 33-year-old lost her husband six months ago when crew members returned to shore with his body and reported that he died at sea.She said she has been able to get part-time employment at a bar in addition to domestic work she does around the village. She added that her greatest financial support is from her parents. She also has a little kitchen garden to supplement her meagre income.Chunilall told this publication that no Government official has reached out to her since the tragedy.“I want some assistance with my children to support them so they can go to school regularly,” she noted.With children aged 17, 16, 15, 14, 12 and 10-years old, Chunilall noted that her 17-year-old daughter has completed school but the others attend school when she can afford it.Recently, she visited the Office of the Prime Minister in the region where Representative Gobin Harbhajan, who is the Vice Chairman of the Board of Guardians on the Upper Corentyne, advised her to apply for public assistance for some of the children.In April, 41-year-old Deolall Sooklall of Number 56 Village departed the Number 66 Fisheries wharf and days later his family did not hear from him. This raised some suspicion and as his family made inquiries, they were told that the other fishermen, who Sooklall worked with, made a report to the police in Berbice that he had collapsed on the vessel.According to reports, the man was unresponsive and the vessel returned to shore so that he could receive medical attention. However, Sooklall was pronounced dead.last_img read more

Furious Bayern president slams PSG director Henrique

first_img0Shares0000Bayern Munich President Uli Hoeness (L) is angry with PSG’s negotiating tactics © AFP / Christof STACHEBERLIN, Germany, Sep 3 – Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness, exasperated by two long and eventually failed transfer negotiations with Paris Saint-Germain, fired off a volley of criticism at the French club’s sports director Antero Henrique in an interview Monday.PSG made bids for Bayern defender Jerome Boateng and Portuguese international Renato Sanches over the summer but the way Henrique went about his business left Hoeness seething. “I’ll give Paris Saint-Germain a bit of advice – they should find a new director of sport,” said Hoeness, who was re-elected as Bayern president in 2016 after serving 21-months in jail on tax evasion charges.“This guy does not project the right image. If PSG want to become a world-class club they cannot allow themselves to have a sporting director like this one,” he said in an interview published in Kicker on Monday.Hoeness claimed Henrique behaved poorly in his negotiations for both players, although he did not go into detail.The 29-year-old Boateng had been interested by PSG’s project under new German coach Thomas Tuchel, but Bayern put a 50-million-euro price tag on him with the French offer falling short of that.Bayern Munich also say they struck a deal for Sanches but that PSG then tried to bargain them down afterwards.The Bavarian club’s sports director Hasan Salihamidzic also stuck the boot in on Paris on Saturday after the club’s 3-0 win over Stuttgart.“I do not want to insult anybody. But I will tell you – you can’t do things like that to Bayern Munich. Especially when it is about that kind of player,” he told Sky TV.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Zlatan on the mind for wistful World Cup Swedes

first_img0Shares0000Zlatan Ibrahimovic was a giant figure in Swedish football © AFP/File / MARTIN BUREAUYEKATERINBURG, Russian Federation, Jun 25 – Zlatan Ibrahimovic retired from international football two years ago but Sweden’s former talisman looms over their World Cup campaign like only he can.It is only too tempting for Sweden fans to wonder what might have been had the former Paris Saint-Germain player been in the side for Saturday’s match against Germany, which ended in a painful last-gasp defeat. Or allow themselves to imagine what impact Ibrahimovic could have had this Wednesday, when Sweden face Mexico in a make-or-break final group game in Yekaterinburg.Now 36 and in the twilight of his career at LA Galaxy, the giant forward hit 62 goals in 116 games for Sweden before quitting the international scene in 2016.There was speculation in the build-up to the World Cup that he might make a dramatic return and the much-travelled Ibrahimovic, who also played for Manchester United and Barcelona, mischievously dropped numerous hints.But Sweden coach Janne Andersson did not court him — “Zlatan is very welcome to call me” — and Ibrahimovic ended up being in Russia only for commercial reasons.Zlatan Ibrahimovic attends the World Cup Group F match between Germany and Mexico in Moscow © AFP / Kirill KUDRYAVTSEVSwedish fans began trickling into Yekaterinburg, the most eastern city at the World Cup, on Monday and mention of the swaggering Ibrahimovic brought wistful smiles.“Everyone misses Zlatan, but he does not fit into our new team,” said Maria Bronk.Companion Ditte Helwig, sporting a yellow hat, yellow shirt and blue leggings with the word SWEDEN, disagreed.“I think he fits, but I think he’s had enough of it. He’s not too old, but I think he does not want to be here. It is he who said ‘no’.”Helwig and Bronk are such big Ibrahimovic fans that they will travel to the United States in September to see him in action.Helwig, playing the Pokemon Go game on her smartphone as she ambled in the sunshine, said Sweden would have at least drawn with Germany had Ibrahimovic been on the pitch.“I think so because he’s the best scorer in Sweden of all time so it would have been a better result with Zlatan.”Peter Jonsson, freshly arrived from watching the agonising loss to Germany in Sochi, said it was time to move on.“We have a new team with a new spirit. Zlatan of course is a unique player but he was always the spearhead, which meant it was not always easy for the other players.“We need to build now with younger players,” said the 53-year-old from the city of Uppsala, outside Stockholm. “But unfortunately, there is not another Zlatan coming through.”– ‘The best’ –Philip Henriksen, with his parents and sister to see their first game at the World Cup, is adamant.“He should be here, he is our best striker,” said the 18-year-old. “The score would have been different against Germany because he did not just score goals, he was our leader as well.”There may never be another Ibrahimovic, but many Sweden fans hope that winger Emil Forsberg can be the closest to it.The 26-year-old has been linked with an array of top Premier League sides after another stellar year in Germany with Leipzig.But he lacks the dominant personality of Ibrahimovic and is yet to set the World Cup alight.“I love Zlatan and I would welcome him back for the Mexico game,” said Philip’s mother Eleni, 50.“He would not need to run, he could let the young players run and give him the ball, and he can just score the goals.”0Shares0000(Visited 4 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

How Amelia’s amazing travels led back to Dunmore House

first_imgThe magnificent Dunmore Gardens in Carrigans located close to the Donegal/Derry border, has a new lease of life, thanks to the efforts of the well-travelled Amelia McFarland, who spent many happy childhood days there on holiday with her grandparents.The celebrated Georgian House, built in 1742, is a place three generations of the McFarlands call home. Now, Amelia is realising her long-held dream of opening up the estate as a wedding, accommodation and corporate events venue.“I love travelling and I love Dunmore. It was always well known for its hilarious parties and welcoming atmosphere and I wanted to bring all of that back again. I wanted to share this beautiful house and its gardens with everyone. So I came home to Donegal for a whole new adventure,” Amelia said. “I’ve always enjoyed entertaining and hosting monster dinner parties. So I am using all my experience, knowledge and expertise to ensure that those who come to Dunmore have a wonderful positive experience.”Amelia and her mother Anne McFarland, Dunmore House CarrigansDunmore House, CarrigansAmelia’s life story a fascinating journey around the world. She was born in a Victorian hospital on Hammersmith roundabout in London and moved to Russia with her parents soon after.“I lived there until I was 10 years old, interrupted only with frequent visits to my grandparents in Donegal and Meath,” she recalled.Amelia’s first language was a mix of English and Russian. She attended Russian rather than international schools and Russian gradually became her first language. Her love for horses grew as she learned to ride with the Russian cavalry riding stallions at the age of 7. “President Putin also learned to ride here. The army base was off limits for foreigners, so my parents were never allowed to come. And when they did once for a cavalry performance, they were not allowed to talk in case their ‘foreigner’s Russian’ gave them away,” says Amelia.Amelia loved spending time in the dacha – a wooden house in the countryside outside Moscow. Many Muscovites have one in their family.“In winter we cross-country ski-ed, went to the sauna and jumped into freezing lakes. In the summer I picked fruits and mushrooms in the woods. It was then I started getting an appreciation for food and preserving it. Most Russian families have large jars of pickled food to last them through the winter,” she said.During the summer holidays Amelia and her family always came back to Ireland, and back to Carrigans where her love for nature and the outdoor life grew, which included her warm sense of hospitality.Dunmore Gardens“Usually I would be sent on ahead of my parents as they were always working so hard. I learnt to be very independent, making friends with strangers on the plane or helping to translate for the Russian kids that came over to Ireland. “When I was in Ireland, Dunmore was my home. I would spend hours playing in the gardens or sitting in my great grandmother’s chair listening to stories and eating jelly babies,” she added.Dunmore GardensAnne McFarland leading a tour of the walled gardens at DunmoreAmelia said: “We came back to Ireland for good when I was 10. And from there I went through the Irish school system, but my itchy feet couldn’t keep me in one place for long. I left Ireland for Newmarket as soon as I finished my education. I started as a groom in a racing stable.“Starting from the bottom was tough but you learn discipline and how to work hard by getting up very early and finishing very late at night. The opportunity I got in Newmarket was the beginning of a new chapter of my life,” she said.Amelia then set off travelling, spending almost a year in New Zealand before moving on to Australia. “They are two very beautiful countries with a wonderful outdoor lifestyle. But then I was offered a job in Japan that I could not refuse and that’s where I spent the next year and a half of my life.“Then over to America living on the Shenandoah River on the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, near Washington. And, yes, I sang the song a lot while I was there,” she said, with a laugh.Having trained herself up through cookery courses and wedding courses – she also completed an entrepreneur course with Donegal County Council – Amelia is ready to throw open the experience of Dunmore Gardens to everyone.Dunmore House Accommodation“Whether it’s weddings, functions, corporate events, parties or to come enjoy the accommodation and get away for some privacy, Dunmore has a welcome waiting like no other.“This place has always been close to my heart and I’m looking forward so much to sharing the beautiful house and gardens which are filled with so many happy memories,” Amelia said.How Amelia’s amazing travels led back to Dunmore House was last modified: July 19th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:amelia mcfarlandCarrigansdunmore gardensdunmore househospitalitytourismlast_img read more

FOOTBALL: DRUMOGHILL FC 3 EANY CELTIC 2

first_imgWatson Hire Division OneDrumoghill FC 3 Eany Celtic 2Drumoghill FC held their nerve to secure 3 vital points against promotion chasing Eany Celtic at the Moss, and in doing so boosted their chances of securing their Division 1 status. But they needed nerves of steel to do so, withstanding a second half fight-back from Eany after the home side went into the interval with a 3-0 lead. But a brace from Barry Rose ensured an anxious conclusion for the home side. Not for the first time, the hero for Drumoghill was striker Liam O’Donnell. The division’s top scorer started on fire and put his side ahead on 5 minutes, pouncing on a rebound from Richard Tinney’s 20 yard drive which keeper Colm Kelly had failed to hold. Six minutes later O’ Donnell had turned creator with a mazy run into the penalty area before squaring the ball for Richard Moore to tap home. Drumoghill were absolutely clinical during the opening period and looked dangerous on the break as Eany dominated possession. And it was from one such break on 32 minutes that Drumoghill grabbed their 3rd goal, his time Tinney sent O’Donnell free on the right wing and the young striker raced towards goal before slotting past Kelly at his near post to send Drumoghill into the break 3 goals in the ascendency. It was perhaps an unfair reflection on the first period as Eany dominated for large spells. They should have been ahead as early as the 2nd minute when Liam Mc Groarty sent namesake Paul through on goal, but the striker saw his effort well smothered by Greg Regan. Martin Shovlin, the game’s outstanding performer, then created a chance for John Rose but he too found Regan in top form.The second half started in a similar fashion as Eany maintained their dominance from the first half. They quickly reduced the arrears when Barry Rose glided past John Madigan and Christopher O’Donnell to finish and the same player repeated the trick when he latched on to a long goal kick from Kelly to set up a nervous conclusion. FOOTBALL: DRUMOGHILL FC 3 EANY CELTIC 2 was last modified: January 13th, 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:FOOTBALL: DRUMOGHILL FC 3 EANY CELTIC 2last_img read more
