Silva says UE was ‘complacent, overconfident’ in loss to UST

The discipline of buying in the system is not consistent,” Silva pointed out.“We’re not the strong team that we can flip the on button and game na.

What Will President Sirleaf Tell Nation Jan. 27

first_imgPresident Ellen Johnson Sirleaf in her annual message to the Second Session of the 53rd National Legislature of the Republic of Liberia on January 28, 2013 vowed a new focus to develop a more formidable national soccer team for the country.Speaking on the theme ‘A Time for Transformation’ she summarized government’s support and the team’s lack of success.President Sirleaf said, “To promote the more unifying force in our body politic, we allocated significant resources to the promotion of sports activities, particularly football.“The results have been less than satisfactory, suggesting we need a new approach – one that focuses on the development of a young national team and directing resources to other sports.”She added: “Consultations are under way with the various concerned entities to ensure commitment to this new approach.”The less than satisfactory results were the poor performance of the national team against Nigeria (6-1) Uganda (in Kampala 1-0) and Senegal (in Monrovia 2-1) that ended both of Liberia’s World Cup and Nations’ Cup dreams.Hence, there was a new beginning and the soccer community expressed appreciation for the president’s announcement. Now what are the facts? Did President Sirleaf’s vow, eventually helped to develop a new but young Lone Star? The evidence, according to our investigation, does not support the reality of President Sirleaf’s pronouncement.The president will be addressing the nation on Monday, January 27, 2014 and will take stock on the achievement since 2013. As we anticipate the 2013’s Progress Report, we want to draw the president’s attention to how much ‘less than successful’ was achieved during the sports year in 2013.As a result the Daily Observer sports desk contacted sports officials at both the Ministry of Youth and the various federations to see if the government lived up to its commitment.A ministry official admitted that there was no increase in the budget allocation to develop the national soccer team, Lone Star.“We know the usual USD500, 000 that is provided for the Lone Star in the budget,” he said.At the Liberia Football Association, the Daily Observer gathered that there was nothing new in government’s support to Lone Star in 2013 and none at all went to support the regular leagues where players are developed to play for the national team.“A USD5 million five-year football development budget was rejected by Lawmakers in the House,” an FA official said.He added: “We have also submitted a 5-year football national development plan to the government and we are yet to hear a response from the government.”The LFA said success in football will depend on two programs, which are player development and game development.“In player development is where you provide a systematic career path with incentives from the various age groups; and the game development includes infrastructure, that is stadiums and equipment,” he said.The LFA said close to 10, 500 youths, including females participate in soccer from the 3rd, women, first and the second divisions in the Liberia Football Association organized leagues.“This makes soccer the highest employer for young people, and this can be said about other sports since there are equally significant numbers of young people who participate in them,” he said.It is likely that President Sirleaf will take credit for the over USD1million provided for the 2013-2014 National County Meet. However, the recently concluded County Meet but we are making reference to the president’s pronouncement to the success of the national team that was less than satisfactory in 2012.“The players from the County Meet must be absolved into the regular LFA league which is the only way to develop the players for the national team,” an FA official said.President Sirleaf meanwhile said human development would be high on the government’s agenda, and therefore she must look into the provision of adequate funding for sports development.In the end the president will have a difficult task to explain to her compatriots the reasons her vow to provide a new focus to develop young players for the national team did not materialize.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Mitigating climate change

first_imgDear EditorThere has rightly been talk of what the Government can do to mitigate climate change; but what can we, as individuals, do?New research published in the journal Science has revealed that avoiding meat and dairy products is the single biggest way you can reduce your environmental impact on the planet. The analysis revealed the impact of livestock, which takes up 83 per cent of farmland and produces 60 per cent of agriculture’s greenhouse gas emissions, while providing only 18 per cent of calories. It also revealed that the elimination of meat and dairy consumption would result in a reduction of more than 75 per cent of global farmland – an area equivalent to the US, China, European Union and Australia combined.A World Wildlife Fund report found that 60 per cent of global biodiversity loss is down to meat-based diets. A graph produced by Our World in Data suggests that, on average, 0.01m2 of land is required to produce a gram of protein from beans or peas, as against 1m2 to produce a gram of protein from cattle or sheep: a 100-fold difference. Beef production results in up to 105kg of greenhouse gases per 100g of meat. Tofu produces less than 3.5kg. In Ireland, a third of our greenhouse gas emissions come from ruminants.Albert Einstein’s quote has never been more apt: “Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet”.Sincerely,Rooplall Dudhnathlast_img read more

India’s Deadly Entrance Exams

first_imgNEW DELHI – In late April, a 17-year-old girl named Kriti Tripathi leaped to her death in Kota, India, shortly after passing the country’s examination for admission to the prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IIT). A week later, another Kota student, Preeti Singh, hanged herself, succumbing to her injuries after a few days. Singh’s was the ninth suicide by a student in Kota this year alone, and the 56th in the last five. All attended Kota’s “coaching institutes,” whose sole purpose is to prepare high-school students for the IIT Joint Entrance Examination (JEE). In a five-page suicide note, Tripathi expressed her frustration at having been compelled to study engineering, when her real ambition was to become a NASA scientist. She also described the pressure she had faced at the coaching institution. Tripathi implored the Human Resource Development Ministry to shut down such institutes, which force their students to endure unbearable stress and depression. The story is all too common, but should the blame really be laid on the coaching institutes? In fact, Kota’s coaching institutes are a symptom of a larger problem, hinted at by the city’s senior administrator, District Collector Ravi Kumar Surpur, in an emotional letter he wrote in response to the latest deaths. Addressing parents directly, Surpur pleaded with them not to subject their children to excessive stress in an attempt to live vicariously through them. Indian parents are known for demanding academic excellence from their children. They know that a professional degree in the right field is a passport to social and economic advancement, so they push hard to ensure that their children get one – something that India’s higher-education system does not make easy. Given this deeply entrenched culture of academic ambition, the planned administrative inquiry into conditions at the Kota coaching institutes is unlikely to result in remedial action. The toll this culture takes on young people is obvious. Students are forced to pass brutally difficult examinations – only about 10,000 of the 500,000 who take the IIT-JEE each year score high enough to be admitted – in subjects they often detest. And Indian students are far more likely to push themselves until they crack than to drop out. Engineering and medicine remain the subjects of choice for middle-class Indian parents. The country graduates a half-million engineers every year, some 80% of whom end up in jobs that do not require an engineering degree. But, in a throwback to the mid-twentieth century, Indian parents view engineering as the gateway to modernity, and continue pressing their children to study it. Students who do not make it to an IIT end up in institutions of varying quality, many of which do not equip their graduates for today’s labor market. But at least there are enough engineering colleges in India to meet demand. Medicine, by contrast, is a frustratingly crowded field – and for no good reason. India’s medical profession is controlled by the Medical Council of India, an opaque and self-serving cabal that has intentionally limited the supply of available medical college seats. Medical colleges must be recognized by the MCI, which has seen fit to permit only 381 to exist. That leaves only 63,800 slots each year in a country of 1.2 billion people – enough space for fewer than 1% of Indian students aspiring to attend medical school. As if that were not bad enough, some of the seats are awarded against “donations,” with the wealthy essentially purchasing positions that their marks do not merit. Meanwhile, high-achieving students who just barely missed the cutoff have to find alternatives – or pursue another field altogether. Those whose families can afford it often end up studying medicine abroad. Many do not return to India, depriving the country of their much-needed expertise. Some return after having attended obscure colleges in countries like Georgia or China, only to have the MCI refuse to recognize their degrees and block them from practicing. For those who cannot afford to go abroad – even bright students who barely missed the cutoff for a spot at an Indian university – studying medicine is no longer an option. Yet India desperately needs doctors. According to the World Health Organization, the country has just 0.7 doctors per 1,000 people. In the United States and the United Kingdom – two countries to which Indian doctors often emigrate – the rate is 2.5 per 1,000 and 2.8 per 1,000, respectively. The crippling lack of capacity means that lives are lost every day – particularly in rural areas – for want of medical attention. India could be graduating four or five times as many capable doctors as it does each year. Yet the MCI has been allowed to pursue its restrictive approach, depriving poor Indians of adequate health care, while augmenting the already-huge pressure on students to gain a seat in a medical college. It is in this context – with a huge population competing for a tiny number of seats in professional colleges – that coaching institutes like those in Kota thrive. When succeeding in tough entrance examinations is the only way to fulfill one’s educational goals, test preparation becomes the be-all and end-all of schooling. Eager to satisfy pushy parents, young people sacrifice their own interests at the altar of a false god. The 56 pyres lit in Kota over the last five years are a tragic testament to how damaging this conception of academic excellence can be.

TRANSFER ALERT! Arsenal and Chelsea get Alvaro Morata boost

first_img1 Juventus will NOT attempt to re-sign Arsenal and Chelsea target Alvaro Morata if Real Madrid buy him back this summer.With both London clubs among those circling for Morata, Real Madrid look set to exercise their buy-back option of their former striker.That fee is set at a relatively modest £23m – and they are expected to sell him straight on for around £50m in a shrewd piece of summer business.Chelsea and Arsenal have been linked with moves for the Spain international, still only 23, but it has been suggested that Serie A champions Juve will also bid to take him straight back to Turin.However, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, Juve are wary that his wage demands would be way too high for them and look set to withdraw from the race.It has been suggested that Morata wants around £6m-per-year, which would even far eclipse what Juventus pay their top earners Gianluigi Buffon and Paul Pogba.And, although he has become an established first-team player since arriving in 2014, he has scored just 15 goals in his 63 Serie A appearances so Juve feel they may get better value for money elsewhere.

Doherty: Tim Cook’s comments “completely at odds with evidence”

first_imgSinn Féin Finance spokesperson Pearse Doherty has written to the Finance Minister Michael Noonan to ask that the EU Commission ruling on Apple’s tax affairs in Ireland be published immediately.Teachta Doherty also said comments from Apple CEO Tim Cook on Morning Ireland this morning are completely at odds with his testimony at the US Senate hearings in 2013.Speaking this afternoon Teachta Doherty said; “During this morning’s interview Tim Cook categorically denies that there was any special arrangement between his company and Ireland in relation to tax rates.” Apple CEO Tim Cook“However, during the 2013 US Senate hearings Apple’s head of tax policy, Mr Philip Bullock said there was a tax agreement with Ireland which amounted to a maximum of approximately 2%. When this was put to Mr Cook at the hearings he said Apple had a tax incentive agreement with Ireland.”“So the comments of Mr Cook on Morning Ireland today are completely at odds with evidence given by him and his head of tax policy at the US Senate hearings in 2013.”“I have today written to the Finance Minister Michael Noonan to ask that the full ruling from the EU Commission be published immediately.”Michael Noonan“The commission today clarified that it has given the ruling to the government and to Apple and that it is up to them to publish it.” “The government is clearly trying to push for an appeal to this ruling yet it has not even had the decency to make it public.”“We are hearing that the Dáil may called next week to debate the matter, which is something Sinn Féin has called for, but we need to have access to the full ruling ahead of any such debate.”Doherty: Tim Cook’s comments “completely at odds with evidence” was last modified: September 2nd, 2016 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:apple taxMichael NoonanPearse Dohertythis morningtim cooklast_img read more

GAA NEWS – STRICTLY ONLY A FEW TICKETS LEFT FOR RED HUGHS’ DANCE NIGHT

first_imgOur Seniors and Reserves were both in action at the weekend with home games hosting Urris.The reserves were the early starters with their game throwing in at 5.30. The first half was a very close affair with the Red Hugh’s lads playing with a strong breeze were one point up at the break 1-3 to 1-2. It was a very different affair in the second half. Our lads stepped it up a gear and totally dominated the game against the wind. The Clonmany men couldn’t get to grips with the movement of the Reds going forward. The Urris defence was opened time after time and the R​ed Hugh’s boys took full advantage racing into a nine point lead. A late rally from the Clonmany men reduced the deficit to six points before the boys again took control and ran out easy winners on a score line of 3-9 to 2-3. Star men on the day for us was Noel Ewing, Micheal Devine, Ryan Bradley, Damien Wilson & Corey Gallagher.The first team lads took the field at 7pm in their second game of their campaign after a first game victory over Milford at home the lads were hoping to keep on track with another home win. The Urris lads were not going to be an easy hurdle after knocking the Cross lads out of the championship last year. It was a very nervy opening with both sides wasting chances in the early minutes of the game. The Reds got the first score through Gerard Melaugh after five minute. The visitors got an equalizer almost ten minutes later. It was tit for tat there after until the final ten minutes of the half. A long diagonal ball into Calvin Bradley who laid it off to Eugene Brown seen him up ended in the box winning a penalty which Calvin tucked away with ease. The Urris lads kept their cool and went on the attack straight away a long high ball into the box wasn’t dealt with the ball was punched to the net by K Mc Laughlin to cancel out the Reds penalty. The half time score was 1-4 to 1-3The visitors came out strong in the second half and got an equalizer through Conor Brennan. Urris had a lot of possession early in the second half but failed to capitalize on it. The Red Hughs lads kept probing away and were creeping ahead slowly with points from Damien Brown, Johnny Carlin, Gerry Melaugh & Martin Bonner. The Cross men found themselves three points up with ten minutes to go. The visitors were not going to lay down quietly and closed to gap to two points before disaster stuck again for the home side. Another long hopeful ball into the box from the Urris lads and a mix up in our defence seen the ball ending up in the back of the net.The Clonmany men were in the driving seat and quickly raced into a four point lead that was a gap that was too much to claw back. A late rally from the home side was too little too late and the visitors ran out winners on the day.

BRESLIN WINS MANORCUNNINGHAM 5K – WHERE DID YOU COME?

first_imgThe annual Manor 5k road race took place last night in what has now become the traditional warmest night of the year.Just like last year temperatures reached over 20 degrees before the start of the race.This put and extra demand on competitors on this undulating course that has become a favorite with the fitter athletes around the county, and has a great local support from all the fun athletes that turn out each year to enjoy the banter, and hospitality of the Lagan Harps football club.The race this year had a very close finish between last years winner Ivan Toner and Pauric Breslin both team mates in Letterkenny AC. Pauric getting the better of Ivan over the last twenty metres. Anthony Doherty of Upper Corkey finished a close third to claim the first local athlete home. Anthony’s performance was outstanding as he is not a member of any athlete club.The first junior man home was Roy McGill of Foyle Valley AC. Indeed all four athletes were locked together until the 4k mark and it made for a great last half mile of action through the village of Manorcunningham that all the supporter really enjoyed.Karol Doherty competing in the wheelchair section led the overall race until the the last 800 metres when the four athletes push past him on the climb to the village. Karol’s first 3k was very impressive but the climb over the last 2k was very tough but overall karol turned in a great time on a demanding course for a wheelchair competitor.Karol McGinley was the first Lagan Harps player home. At only 14 years old he finished 5th overall and looked like he had more left in the tank, one of the performance of the night.City of Derry athletes Sarah Kivelehan and Ciara Frixer took the honours in the senior ladies section turning in two excellent performances.In the veteran sections over 40 men Terry Murphy claimed first prize, from James Donaghey Convoy running club. while in the ladies over 40 Brigeen Canavan took the spoils from Mary Rice from Killybegs. Indeed the Ladies over 50 prizes went south of Barnes More Gap also. Two famous Tirconaill athletes Jackie Harvey, and Vera Haughey, still turning in great times. In the over 50 men Pat Brady of Lisclamerty put in the performance of his life to take the title from Shaun (swan) O Donnell of Labbadish and the Swanlets Club. Talking to Pat after the race winning on home soil was important, but getting the better of near neighbour and rival Shaun really put the icing on the cake. But watch out Pat, Shaun will be back next year.It was a night for the fun runners. The work that Shaun O Donnell (the Swanlets) Chris Ashmore (Run for fun Letterkenny) Tommy Doherty ( Drumoghill running club) the Raphoe road Runners, and the Convoy Road runners has to be commended.These volunteers have helped so many people to get out, get fit, and enjoy running just for fun, while improving their health and wellbeing.Well done to each and everyone who competed tonight, thanks to all the Lagan Harps members for the hospitality and refreshments enjoyed by all. Thanks also to Herbie, and Teresa McDaid for helping with the new chip timing system it made such a difference to the administration work load on the night, and to Maire Crossan who has taken the entries every year.Where did you come?Place Bib Name Sex AG Club Time1 401 Pauric Breslin m SM Letterkenny AC 16:392 7 Ivan Toner m SM Letterkenny AC 16:413 101 Anthony Doherty m SM 16:544 22 Roy Mc Gilloway m jm 16:565 36 Conor Mc Devitt m SM 17:486 56 Karol Mc Ginley m JM Finn Valley AC 18:147 38 Terry Murphy m M40 18:258 54 Karol Doherty M W/Chair Inishowen AC 18:529 29 James Donaghey m M40 Convoy AC 19:3010 37 Gary Mc Fadden m SM Bolt 19:4011 74 Liam O Donnell m SM 19:4612 73 John Rodgers m SM 19:4613 61 John Mc Fadden m SM 19:5114 14 Sarah Kivelehan w SW City of Derry 20:0215 89 Ryan Jordan m JM Local 20:0716 91 Troy Hegarty m SM LAC 20:0917 70 Kevin Kelly m SM Lagan 20:2118 100 Gary Neely m M40 Swanlings 20:3719 72 Glen Gallagher m SM Lagan F.C. 20:5420 35 Brian O’ Donnell m M40 Swanlings 20:5821 41 Donnchadh Parkinson m JM 20:5822 24 Brian Campbell m JM 21:0523 83 Adrian Marsh m M40 21:0924 44 Peter Hamilton m 21:1125 15 Ciara Frixer w SW City of Derry 21:1126 39 Gerard Mc Connell m SM Swanlings 21:2127 27 Shaun Crossan m JM 21:2628 103 Pat Brady m M50 21:2729 88 Wilson Craig m JM Lifford AC 21:2730 16 Brigeen Canavan w W40 City of Derry 22:0331 63 Chris Ashmore m M40 Run for Fun Letterkenny 22:1032 90 Martin Jordan m SM Local 22:2133 69 Steven Shields m SM Letterkenny AC 22:3134 57 Eugene Mc Ginley m M40 Swanlings 22:3335 53 Brian Doherty m M40 Swanlings 22:3636 33 Gareth Rodgers m SM 22:4037 71 Byrn Kelly m SM Lagan F.C. 22:4238 87 John Craig m M40 Lifford AC 22:5139 11 Caolan Murray m 22:5240 21 Emma Mc Gilloway w JW Foyle Valley AC 22:5741 9 Paul Gillen m M40 22:5842 85 Swan Swan m M50 Swanlings 22:5943 106 Ian Alexander m M40 23:0244 79 Curtis Gibson m SM 23:0345 84 Jonathan Wilson m SM Swanlings 23:1446 107 John Mc Elwain m SM 23:1847 10 Dean Murray m Lagan 23:3648 46 Jackie Harvey w W50 Tir Chonaill AC 23:3849 80 Terence Quinn m M50 Raphoe Road Runners 23:4750 32 Chris Cuskelly m M40 Lifford AC 23:5051 86 Tommy Doherty m M50 Drumoghill 23:5352 45 Vera Haughey w W50 Tirconnal 23:5553 17 Golira Donaghey w W50 Finn Valley AC 24:0354 6 Jordan Gallagher m JM Lagan 24:0455 76 Mary Rite w W40 Killybegs Swanlings 24:2356 62 Claire Mololy w W40 24:3157 13 Tiernan Brown m JM Lagan F.C. 24:3458 20 Joseph Casey m M40 24:3559 92 Eoghan Gleeson m SM Run for Fun Letterkenny 24:3760 98 Wendy Goudie w SW Swanlings 24:5161 95 Liam Cannon m M40 24:5562 26 Peter Curran m JM 24:5563 105 Eimear Mc Clafferty w SW 25:1364 75 Billy Broderick m M50 Killybegs Swanlings 25:1965 5 Jude Mc Crossan m JM Lifford AC 25:2566 31 Alisha Cuskelly w JW Lifford AC 26:1167 2 Mary Hegarty Brogan w W40 Run for Fun Letterkenny 26:3468 50 Ingrdei Proberkaite w SW 26:4269 82 Raj Mehan m SM Raphoe Road Runners 26:4270 49 Mathew Doran m JM 26:5271 1 Fidelma Mullaney w SW Run for Fun Letterkenny 26:5672 8 Mary Bonnar w W50 27:0073 30 Olivia Cuskelly w SW Lifford AC 27:0574 4 Harriet Mc Crossan w JW Lifford AC 27:2575 51 Lorraine Boyce w SW 27:5476 78 Catherine Malone w W40 Run for Fun Letterkenny 27:5577 28 Darragh Rodgers m JM Lagan F.C. 27:5978 65 Michella Carolan w JW 28:0579 104 Sean Bonner m M50 Convoy Running Club 28:2380 96 Rosaleen Lynch w SW 28:2381 34 John Crawford m M40 28:5082 52 Liam Haughey m M50 Swanlings 28:5183 48 Mia Doran w JW 28:5484 47 Angela Doran w W40 28:5485 40 Michael Parkinson m M50 30:0986 60 Donna Mc Kelvey w SW Drumoghill 30:1487 59 Martin Crawford m SM Cross Fit 30:1788 99 Lucinda Magee w SM DRC 30:3189 55 Deirdre Mc Garrigle w W40 31:5090 102 Annmarie Shields w SW Run for Fun Letterkenny 32:0991 58 Roisin Crawford w SW DRC 33:1092 93 Olive Mc Ginley w W40 Drumoghill 33:2593 3 Elina Maliseva Gaile w SW 33:5994 68 Leah Gallagher w jw 34:1895 19 Ronan O Donnell m JM Lagan 34:3896 18 Johnny O’ Donnell m M40 Lagan F.C. 34:3897 94 Germaine Rodgers w W40 Drumoghill 34:5798 97 Liam Lynch m JM 35:2499 64 Lauren Gallagher w JW 35:44100 77 Ciaran Quinn m JM 35:45101 25 Charles Dooher m JM 41:51102 23 Paul Keany m JM 42:05  BRESLIN WINS MANORCUNNINGHAM 5K – WHERE DID YOU COME? was last modified: July 1st, 2015 by StephenShare 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:donegalManor 5Klast_img read more

OLDER PERSONS SERVICE WORKING TO DISCHARGE ELDERLY PATIENTS FROM HOSPITAL

first_imgThe Older Persons Service and the Home Care Services are working closely with the Discharge Liaison in Letterkenny General Hospital to properly identify people who are ready to be discharged today and in the coming days.Letterkenny General HospitalBoth services work in close proximity every day with a minimum of three contacts daily at 08:30, 2pm and 4pm in order to tackle and resolve everyday challenges.Through a shared network Community Hospitals throughout the County and Letterkenny General Hospital are working closely to identify those requiring a Community Hospital step down service. Home Care services are also currently being put in place for 8 discharges throughout the county in order to free up beds in community hospitals and acute services.Management in Letterkenny have contacted GP’s asking them to avoid any unnecessary Emergency Department admissions in order to free up as many bed spaces as possible.There are 8 people currently in transitional care beds in Nursing Homes to facilitate step down from acute services with another individual possibly transferring today.As of 2pm yesterday there were 4 people on trollies in Letterkenny, while this is still 4 people too many, the Department says it will endeavour to utilise every available resource and measure to reduce these figures further.  OLDER PERSONS SERVICE WORKING TO DISCHARGE ELDERLY PATIENTS FROM HOSPITAL was last modified: January 15th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:dischargedonegalLetterkenny General Hospitallast_img read more
