Laois’s James Keyes is celebrating as he and his teammates led Ireland to U-21 Shinty glory against Scotland in Abbotstown this afternoon.The Colt youngster was to the fore as his team came from behind to defeat Scotland.The visitors led 4-1 to 1-9 at half time but Ireland completely took over on the resumption of play.They scored four goals in the opening ten minutes of the second half and, try as they might, Scotland just couldn’t comeback.Scotland only managed a solitary point in the second period as Keyes’ Ireland went on to win 7-11 to 4-2 in the end.There was not such good fortune for the Ireland senior team who lost heavily to Scotland.The side, which contained Castletown’s Ryan Mullaney and Clough-Ballacolla’s Willie Dunphy, lost out 5-11 to 0-4.SEE ALSO – O’Brien and Hanley down Mountmellick as Clonguish Gaels march on Pinterest By Alan Hartnett – 2nd November 2019 Facebook Twitter TAGSJames KeyesShinty Home Sport GAA Shinty U-21 glory for Keyes’ Ireland against Scotland SportGAAHurling Previous articleO’Brien and Hanley down Mountmellick as Clonguish Gaels march onNext articleSecond half comeback sees Laois U-16s maintain winning Fr Manning Cup start Alan HartnettStradbally native Alan Hartnett is a graduate of Knockbeg College who has worked in the local and national media since 2008.

Help us plan Byron Bay’s new skatepark and recreation precinct

first_imgHelp us plan Byron Bay’s new skatepark and recreation precinct Plans are underway to turn what is a tired and under-utilised space known as Sandhills on the fringe of the Byron Bay CBD into a vibrant skatepark and recreation precinct.A much welcomed injection of $2.05 million from the NSW Government’s Roads and Infrastructure Election Commitment, and another $600,000 from Council has meant the project is now ready to progress to the detailed design phase.One of the world’s leading skatepark designers, CONVIC, has been engaged to design the skatepark and recreational hub but first Council wants to hear what locals would like to see included.Sandhills is the area behind the Byron Bay Library, the Sandhills Childcare Centre and near the Byron Youth Activities Centre.“This area is crying out to be activated, cleaned up and turned into something the entire community will be able to use and enjoy,” Byron Shire Mayor, Simon Richardson, said.“This is not just about building one of the best skateparks in regional Australia, it’s about acknowledging the nearby wetlands that are degraded, restoring them, building boardwalks and paths providing a beautiful green link to the beach and foreshore area, the recreation grounds and the CBD,” Mayor Richardson said.“Importantly, this project will also acknowledge and incorporate the strong cultural ties the Arakwal people have to this area,” he said.Anyone with an interest in the Sandhills area is now asked to share their thoughts, ideas and opinions on concept plans for the area that were developed in 2018 at Your Say Byron Shire.The aim is for CONVIC to take those initial concept plans and, using the feedback from the community, build on them to develop detailed designs that will then be presented to Council and the community.Feedback can be provided via a survey on Your Say Byron Shire until 14 December 2020. /Public Release.

The news sent Dialog shares tumbling more than 20 per cent.The move would likely have significant consequences for Dialog, which Nikkei Asian Review noted derived 75 per cent of its revenue from Apple in 2016.When Apple similarly ditched graphics technology provided by UK-based Imagination Technologies earlier this year, it ultimately led to the company being sold to private equity company Canyon Bridge Capital Partners.Dialog noted it still appears to have Apple’s backing because it continues to win “new design engagements and opportunities” from the vendor. However, it explained an ongoing relationship is “contingent on Dialog meeting Apple’s technology quality, price and volume expectations”.

Fulop opposes bill introduced by Hudson legislators that would halt property…

first_img RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Fulop opposes bill introduced by Hudson legislators that would halt property revals Jersey City high school teacher suspended after rant calling George Floyd ‘a f***ing criminal’ Facebook Twitter Jersey City Mayor Steven Fulop is “not a supporter” of a new bill introduced by three Hudson County legislators that would temporarily halt property revaluations so that residents have time to adjust to the “fiscal shock.” By John Heinis/Hudson County ViewBill S-2566, introduced by state Senators Brian Stack (D-33), also the Union City Mayor, and Sandra Cunningham (D-31), would potentially take effect immediately and would allow municipalities to postpone applying reval results until January 2019 – as long as those results were not applied to tax bills before April of this year.Meanwhile, Assemblyman Raj Mukherji (D-33), has introduced the legislation in the state’s lower house.“This bill would delay the implementation of certain property tax revaluations to provide municipal governing bodies, the Division of Taxation, and the Legislature additional time to limit fiscal shock associated with implementing revaluations,” the bill description says.While Stack, Cunningham and Mukherji were not immediately available to comment, Stack said at a community meeting in Jersey City’s Ward C last week that he planned on addressing residents’ reval woes soon.” … I’m also looking at legislation that would address exactly what you’re talking about: that instead of waiting 20 or 30 or 40 years, that we could possibly maybe do something what they call a rolling reval that we’re looking at – possibly other states may be doing,” Stack said (h/t Speak NJ).” … Where the reval is done every three years so the impact isn’t as severe as it is here in Jersey City.”Stack’s legislative district includes the Jersey City Heights and Ward E, the latter of which having generally felt the most drastic effects of this year’s reval – the first one in the city since 1988.Responding to the legislation on Twitter, Fulop said he would prefer just to get the reval over with at this point, rather than implementing more delays in the 11th hour.“I’m not a supporter of delaying it further. It’s been 30 years + our team has done the work to do it properly/fairly. At this point we would not like to see any further delay. The bill is well intended but I think mechanics would make it more difficult,” he wrote.The mayor’s office declined to comment beyond what was in the tweet.In his State of the City address in February, Fulop said that he wanted to implement a second reval next year to ease the rising tax burden on city residents, but he revealed on a March episode of Hudson County Review Live that he would not pursue that idea after it was shot down by the city council.[fve]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lUalMPeulJ4[/fve] FBW says Prime Cycle’s new location violates state guidelines for Hoboken waterfront Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Jersey CityPolitics & PolicyUnion City Community TAGSbrian stackjersey city revalnj assemblynj senateraj mukherjisandra cunninghamsteven fulop SHARE Bayonne Previous articleWith HCDO chair vote nearing, Amy DeGise, Stack trade blows over voter intimidationNext articleBlaettler asks county board of elections to investigate Stack ally for voter fraud John Heinis CarePoint Health reaches deal for Cigna Health Insurance to join their network By John Heinis – May 21, 2018 2:48 pm 0 Community last_img read more
