Previously she worked at consumer goods giant Unilever.She had been set to take over at the helm of KPN in December 2019, having already announced her departure from Proximus.However, following a well-publicised insider trading investigation by Belgium’s stock market, authority KPN cancelled the move citing “uncertainty”.The case against Leroy was eventually dropped in July, after she agreed to pay a €107,841 settlement with the Financial Services and Markets Authority.

Over 80 cyclists of the London hurling cub are to honour the late Cathal Forde with a 400-mile charity cycle from Highgate in England’s capital to Gort, Co. Galway, starting on July 28 (yesterday) arriving in Gort Co Galway on Sunday evening. All proceeds going to The Cormac Trust and MS Ireland, two charities close to the heart of Cathal’s friends and former team-mates. Gort native Forde, who was part of the first Kilburn side to win a London Senior Hurling title in 2010, died of Sudden Adult Death Syndrome (SADS) during a training session in Highgate, aged 28, in April 2012.   The Cormac Trust is a charity that was set up following the sudden death of All-Ireland winning former Tyrone footballer Cormac McAnallen in 2004.  It was largely due to the death of Cormac and subsequent cases, such as with Cathal, that the Irish public became aware of the issue of sudden cardiac death among young people. Cathal’s brothers Niall, Sean and Liam, and cousin Brian are all taking part in the cycle. From the time of Cormac’s death the McAnallen family was keen to direct public attention to these cardiac conditions that cause such sudden deaths. Hence the family, with the assistance of the Tyrone County Board of the GAA, set up the Cormac Trust. The following are its four objects:To raise awareness of sudden cardiac deaths in young people, and its causes;To promote cardiac screening for young people, especially for athletes;To provide education and information to raise awareness at government level and among other authorities as to the value of providing facilities for the screening of young people;To provide automated external defibrillators (AEDs) for sports clubs in the local region, for the use of the entire local community, and to train people in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and the use of defibrillators.If you are interested in speaking with Liam Forde brother of the late Cathal Forde about the cycle or JP O’Neill Manager of The Cormac Trust please contact me on 0879268066.last_img read more

Nine Galway City And County Golfers Aim For Irish Amateur Boys Title

first_imgprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Mark Power (Pictured) was victorious at Castle last year, winning by six shots, and the Kilkenny international is bidding to win back-to-back championships. Should he retain his title, Power will be keeping company with Greystones’ Paul Dunne, who completed a unique double at Bangor in 2009. Dunne is the only two-time champion in the history of the Irish Boys, which dates back to 1983. Previous winners include Damien McGrane (1988), Michael Hoey (1997) and Rory McIlroy (2004).Since the championship became an open event in 2012, there have been two international winners. England’s Bradley Moore won at Thurles in 2014 and Adrian Pendaries from France took the title at Tuam the following year. Eight visiting countries are represented in 2017: England (11), France (5), Turkey (4), Germany (3), Iceland (2), Netherlands (1), Portugal (1) and Slovakia (1).Surviving the 54-hole cut will be the immediate goal for every player in the field. The top 50 and ties progress to the final day. If Power recaptures his 2016 form, he will be hard to catch but with Ireland teammates Reece Black (Hilton Templepatrick); John Brady (Rosslare); Jack Hearn (Tramore); Robert Moran (Castle) and Cameron Raymond (Newlands) in the field, potential winners abound. The Irish Boys Amateur Open is underway at Castletroy with Nine Galway City and County Golfers all aiming to take the crown won by Mark Power last year.They are Ross Kelly from Tuam, Liam Nolan and Liam Power from Galway from Galway, Jack Touhy from Galway Bay, Luke O’Neill from Connemara, Alan Hill, Darren Leufer and David Kitt from Athenry and Ronan Hynes from Oughterardlast_img read more

Athome he won’t pick the bridle up,” Appleby said.“He is a trainer’s dream. I gave him a gallop duringthe week with some of the nicer two-year-olds, trying to give myself a bit ofconfidence and I think we did the reverse to be honest: they out-galloped him!“You don’t get confidence at home but at the track,what can you say? The way he has won there I see no reason why we do not go tothe Dewhurst Stakes.“I’ve been very lucky to have some nice two-year-oldsso far but he’s amazing. He just doesn’t do it in the morning.“We’ve seen the change in him over the past six weeks;people were saying is he just a two-year-old?
