There was a brief family squabble at the Allman Town Infant School after two brothers and their sister went to cast their votes this morning. According to onlookers, one brother and a sister are PNP supporters, while the other brother supports the Jamaica Labour Party. It was not clear what started the altercation, but the female and the JLP supporting brother were engaged in a quarrel as they left the polling station. “The two brothers and sister they are family but one of them want to stop the progress but him sister tell him seh dat caan happen,” said one onlooker. The two argued viciously with each other as police officers there looked on unmoved. The argument, which quickly dissipated, drew the attention of voters at the infant school and those at the neighbouring St Matthew’s Anglican Church read more
Mullantyboyle Bridge, GlentiesFine Gael TD for Donegal, Dinny McGinley, has welcomed the allocation of almost €700,000 in funding by the Minister for Transport, Paschal Donohoe, for the restoration of Multiniboyle Bridge outside Glenties. “Multiniboyle Bridge outside Glenties collapsed into the river five years ago as it could no longer handle the volume of traffic is had to carry. The loss of this bridge has been a huge inconvenience to local people, businesses and farmers in the area,” he said.“With Multiniboyle Bridge out of action, motorists have been left with no choice but to take a diversion of over 15km around Glenties. “In February of this year I invited Minister Donohoe to Donegal and when he was here I took him to the bridge to highlight the need for urgent funding.“Minister Donohoe acknowledged the problems caused by the collapse of the bridge and assured me that he would do everything in his power to deal with the issue as quickly as possible.“I am delighted to hear that funding of just under €700,000 has been allocated to repair the bridge. Minister Donohoe recognised the impact that the collapse of the bridge has had on the people of the locality and his Department has made the funding available to repair the bridge.“I look forward to the seeing works get underway in the very near future and to seeing Multiniboyle Bridge back in use before too long.” GLENTIES TO GET REPLACEMENT BRIDGE was last modified: March 30th, 2015 by John2Share 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:bridgeGlentiesprotest read more

ST. LOUIS–It wasn’t long ago when Madison Bumgarner and the San Francisco Giants made quick work of the St. Louis Cardinals, needing just five games to clinch the National League pennant en route to their third World Series in five years.That series may not be a distant memory for those involved, but with the way the Giants have played over the last two years, it sure feels like one.Bumgarner returned to the mound Friday at Busch Stadium for the first time since he threw 7 2/3 shutout innings …

Kylian Mbappé ‘Here I’m not Mbappe, I’m just Kylian’ – New PSG star set for sweet homecoming Robin Bairner Last updated 2 years ago 16:11 8/9/2017 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(0) Getty Images Kylian Mbappé Monaco Metz v PSG PSG Ligue 1 Opinion The 18-year-old will be a special signing for the capital side, not just because of his fee, but because of what he means to the local people As Kylian Mbappe was presented as a Paris Saint-Germain player for the first time on Wednesday, it quickly became clear that this was no ordinary signing: it was a homecoming.Greeted by a jubilant bunch of supporters outside the Parc des Princes, where flares were let off and his name incessantly sung, it was a welcome never before received by an 18-year-old footballer, who will, when PSG buy him outright next summer, become the most expensive teenager the game has ever seen at a fee of €145 million, rising potentially to €180m. PSG 2/1 to win CL in next 3 years Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘I’m getting better’ – Can Man Utd flop Fred save his Old Trafford career? Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing On Friday, when the Parisians go to Metz, their fans will have the opportunity to see him on the field in their colours for the first time, the completion of a dream for a young man who has climbed the ranks and will now play for his hometown club.Mbappe might have been ranked by CIES Football Observatory as the most overpriced signing of the summer transfer window , but to PSG, he possesses a value more intrinsic, a quality that money can’t buy. He is Alex Hunter made real. His symbolism is priceless.The image of a working-class kid who has risen to the top of the tree was one cast throughout the press conference in midweek, which opened with the image of a Metro train crossing an industrial looking Parisian bridge with graffiti scrawled on it. Then as Mbappe appeared, pictures of him as a kid at Parc des Princes formed the backdrop.“It was important to come back home,” were virtually the player’s first official words as a PSG player. “The Parc is special, I came here when I was young. There is only one club in the city, so the kids naturally head towards PSG. For me, the Parc was a place where I came when I had pocket money!”Mbappe’s home of Bondy, where he first played the game seriously, lies barely 10 kilometres to the north west of Paris’ historic centre and twice that to the home of PSG, where he will now team up with world stars such as Neymar, Marco Verratti and Dani Alves in a side suddenly capable of winning the Champions League.It is an area that he retains a great affection for, having played for the club for many years as a youth before moving to Monaco. And the feeling is mutual, not least because the attacker remains so down to earth whenever he returns.“No-one can understand the emotion I feel today,” Mbappe said when he returned home a Ligue 1 champion with Monaco. “It’s a sense of extreme pride. It’s the town I’ve known, in which I’ve grown up and developed and where a part of me stays. “Here, I’m not Mbappe, I’m just Kylian.”Kylian Mbappé a désormais son portrait sur un immeuble de #Bondy , la ville où il a grandi. pic.twitter.com/iWlvW61aE3 — Nathan Gourdol (@NathanGourdol) September 6, 2017 It was in Bondy, after all, where he forged his industrious nature. On those playing fields he sacrificed his school holidays to work at his game, giving rise to the attitude that made him go home promptly after Monaco won the Ligue 1 title last season in order to prepare for the next challenge.Initially, it was thought that would be the defence of the crown, but instead it is the pursuit of it anew in the capital.“I reflected along with my parents and my representatives, weighed up the pros and cons, and I decided to join PSG, because it is a project that will allow me to learn while winning,” he said. “Learning is fine, but you also have to win – you only have one career. I’m hungry for titles, I’m a competitor, I want to win right now.“Through hard work and humility, we will achieve our goals and this dream of winning the Champions League.”While PSG’s global fanbase wants success, what local supporters wish to see is a club with a French and moreover a Parisian background. Blaise Matuidi’s summer departure to Juventus stripped the supporters of one of ‘their own’, despite the player being born in Toulouse, but Mbappe is destined to become the new darling of the Parc.Indeed, a Parisian spine is starting to form, with Adrien Rabiot performing to a formidable standard in the midfield. Further back, Alphonse Areola in goal has ousted Kevin Trapp for the No.1 jersey while Presnel Kimpembe – born only a few kilometres north of Paris – is now challenging Thiago Silva and Marquinhos for a starting berth in the defence.Neymar may be the player to showcase PSG to the world, but it is Mbappe who may yet offer greater appeal to a more local audience.By completing his dream of a move to his hometown, he has simultaneously taken PSG a step closer to their long-term goal of winning the Champions League. read more
