England Saxons bounce back to beat Ireland A

first_imgTuesday Feb 2, 2010 England Saxons bounce back to beat Ireland A As Six Nations season approaches rapidly, the England Saxons hosted Ireland A at the Recreation Ground in Bath on Sunday. The Saxons avenged last years Churchill Cup loss with a 17-13 victory.Shane Geraghty did his bit to make England boss Martin Johnson pencil him in as having what it takes to be part of the senior side over the next few months. He scored 12 points, including a try, and looks back to his best.“I think my tackling has improved and my goal kicking got better as we went along.“But it wasn’t about making points for the England management – it was more about playing better than I did for Northampton against Munster last week,” said Geraghty.The more experienced Irish side would have hoped to continued their good run of form, but were denied by an England side that attacked well, then defended solidly when required to.“As a team we have to be happy to win given their experience and the hiding we took last June, Geraghty added.“This is a huge turnaround for us – especially considering Ireland added Peter Stringer and Paddy Wallace to their squad. Mentally we had unfinished business from the summer when we were outmuscled.”Both tries were classily done, with Geraghty scoring the one and David Strettle finishing after a nicely timed pass by Ben Youngs. For Ireland A it was Chris Henry who got them back in the match after a nice piece of play by Isaac Boss.

Limerick drug dealers cutting heroin with cattle medicine

first_imgDrugs epidemic threatens to engulf Limerick City Email Facebook Gardaí across Ireland take on viral dance challenge Man and woman arrested after Gardaí seize cash and suspected drugs worth more than €28,000 Previous articleLimerick man jailed for threatening to kill Garda detectiveNext articleIce cream vans used as cover for Limerick drug dealer Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Youth arrested in connection with alleged assault on female Garda NewsLimerick drug dealers cutting heroin with cattle medicineBy Staff Reporter – November 4, 2016 3044 Linkedin HEROIN and cocaine sold by Limerick drug dealers is mixed with everything from talcum powder to cattle ringworm medicine.Forensic Science Ireland, based at Garda Headquarters, have confirmed the common belief that drug purity levels in Limerick can be less than 20 per cent with the other 80 per cent made up of a host of ingredients.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Dublin purity levels are recorded at 28 per cent, which is well below the European average of 35-45 per cent.According to analysis of drugs seized by Gardaí, unscrupulous dealers are bulking or “cutting” cocaine with potent levels of levamisole which is used to kill parasitic worms in animals.Three out of every four cocaine seizures had levamisole present.Heroin found in Limerick had been cut to just 30 per cent but bulk seizures had purity levels of more than 40 per cent, indicating that local gangs are further cutting the drugs before distributing them on the streets.The State laboratory said that white sugars, caffeine, diazepam, paracetamol and creatine were also used in the drug mixes.Earlier this year, Kieran (40) and Brian Collopy (43) were jailed for eight years after they were found cutting, mixing and bagging €37,000 of heroin in mixing bowls and in the bath of a house in St Mary’s Park.The brothers were described as being at the “top end of the drugs pyramid”.Testing has shown that the drugs also contain benzocaine and lignocaine, which are local anaesthetics used in dentistry, as well as caffeine and phenacetin, a painkiller banned in a number of countries due to its cancer causing properties.There have been large quantities of Amphetamine seized in Limerick which have have had purity levels as low as 9.2 per cent.center_img TAGScollopydrug dealersdrugsGardaheroinlimerick RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement Twitter Print WhatsApp Newcastle West Gardaí move Gardaí warn students of rental scamslast_img read more

Band joins with Ugandan choir

first_imgWhen 2012 graduates Brian Powers and Nick Gunty traveled to Kkindu, Uganda, last summer, the pair gained much more than expected from their experience. Powers and Gunty, who comprise the band Frances Luke Accord, spent 18 days recording an album with the community’s Barefoot Truth Children’s Choir to raise money for members of the group. “During our stay, we were touched by the many people we met living in rural poverty, who at the same time abound in human potential and an unparalleled spiritual wealth,” Powers said. “Through our interaction with the children and with village leaders, it became apparent that many of these children face hardships that none of us would ever encounter in our lives.” Powers said one of the hardships for the 28 children in the choir is the lack of access to free, public education. “They are not prevented from attending school, but they cannot sit for the necessary exams unless they pay their school fees,” Powers said. “The costs associated with these school fees, including a school lunch and uniform, totals only 70 dollars a year.  But with an average annual income in Uganda of only 511 dollars per capita, many cannot afford even this modest amount.” To raise funds for the children to advance grade levels, the choir and Frances Luke Accord collaborated to record an album entitled “Kandote,” a Lugandan word meaning “I dream.” “All money from the sale of this CD is going directly towards paying these school fees,” Powers said. Kevin Dugan, an operations assistant for Notre Dame men’s lacrosse and the former manager of Youth and Community Programs for Notre Dame Athletics, developed the idea for the project. Dugan is also the founder and director of Fields of Growth International, an organization that uses athletics as a community and human development tool in rural villages in Uganda. “The project was also funded in large part through grants from Notre Dame’s Institute for Scholarship in the Liberal Arts and the Center for Undergraduate Scholarly Engagement as well as some private donations,” Powers said. “Thanks to these generous grants, we had the unique opportunity to spend 18 days in the wonderful country of Uganda doing what we love: listening to, writing, performing and recording music -and bridging a wide cultural divide along the way.” Powers said the band sent the choir a CD before the trip so the children could learn the songs. Approximately 40 takes of each song were recorded before Frances Luke Accord selected the best one for the album. Kandote can be purchased at any online music store or at the band’s website, FrancesLukeAccord.com/music For fans to gain further access into the production of the album, the band uploaded a YouTube video entitled “Kandote” that details the group’s trip to Kkindu and its interaction with the Barefoot Truth Children’s Choir.last_img read more

Resort-style home in Annandale is a family favourite

first_img5 Neale Court, Annandale, is on the market.WHEN Alna Kotzee first laid eyes on 5 Neale Court, Annandale, she knew she had found the perfect home for her family of five.Having moved to Townsville from Johannesburg, South Africa, just over three years ago, she said she quickly “fell in love” with the property.“We bought the house without my husband, Frederick, ever laying eyes on it,” the mother-of-three said. The outdoor entertaining area.“Being a large family, we needed space and this house provided enough bedrooms so each girl could have her own room, and they shared two bathrooms between the three of them which made for less fighting. It was just the perfect home for us as a family.”Married for 22 years, Mr and Mrs Kotzee and their daughters, 18-year-old triplets, are looking forward to their next adventure as a family.“It is time to move on; the girls have finished school and my husband and I are moving south to be closer to their universities,” Mrs Kotzee said. The large living room.,The property is set for an online auction on Tuesday at 6pm.With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, the house is set up for family living, according to Keyes & Co Property director, Damien Keyes.“It could suit either a family with younger children as well as teenagers as there is more than 400sq m under roof, so there is plenty of space,” he said. The house has been big enough to accomodate a family of five comfortably.Built about 10 years ago and set across 1286sq m of land, the residence comes with an expansive outdoor entertaining space that overlooks the resort-style in-ground concrete pool. Here the Kotzee family have shared in many memorable occasions that will last them a lifetime, including celebrating their triplets’ 18th birthdays.“It was the perfect venue; thank goodness for understanding neighbours,” Mrs Kotzee said.“We just loved seeing the kids having friends over and enjoying the pool and patio.” The exterior of the house towards the entrance.Back inside, the clever use of glass draws light inside, with an atrium-style living space made to feel all the more spacious thanks to an opulent cathedral ceiling.“It gives an open and airy feeling and almost a sense that you could be at a luxury resort,” Mr Keyes said.“If you have been dreaming of making the upgrade to that forever home, then you simply can’t go past this beautiful home.”More from news01:21Buyer demand explodes in Townsville’s 2019 flood-affected suburbs12 Sep 202001:21‘Giant surge’ in new home sales lifts Townsville property market10 Sep 2020Set across two distinct wings, the property’s configuration is also something Mr Keyes believes will be of interest to buyers. To the right of the property, the living and entertaining areas, including a large kitchen, are accessible via a galley. One of the bathrooms.“I love to cook and bake and the big, open-plan kitchen meant that I wasn’t isolated from the family whilst cooking,” Mrs Kotzee said, with a double oven allowing her to cook and bake simultaneously.The main bedroom is located in this wing, and features a full-length wardrobe, airconditioning and a deluxe ensuite with double vanity, separate toilet and double shower.To the left of the property are a further three bedrooms, study and bathroom, with the Kotzees having added an outdoor shower that can be accessed internally and via the pool area. The property is set for an online auction on Tuesday at 6pm.“It gives pool users the option of using the bathroom without having to run through the house in their wet swimmers,” Mrs Kotzee said, having also added airconditioning to the laundry, which she described as a Townsville “necessity”.Located in Annandale, Mr Keyes said the fact 5 Neale Court was a relatively young home, positioned in an older part of the suburb, would be a key selling point.“Annandale is famous for its convenience with plenty of quality schooling and also shopping centres,” he said, with a Stockland shopping precinct located nearby.“There are many different price points spread throughout the suburb giving home buyers plenty of options from your first home right up to your dream home, which is part of the reason that Annandale has stood the test of time as a popular suburb, and still remains right at the top of many homebuyers’ shopping lists.”last_img read more
