Mourinho reveals he can’t cook, iron or clean… so never left Lowry at Man Utd

first_imgGIVE Jose Mourinho some stale Spurs stars on plenty of bread and he can rustle up three tasty victories. No problem.But ask him to cook a meal and he freely admits he would struggle. Unless it is sausages and eggs.5 Sausages and eggs are the only thing on Jose’s menu… when he’s not at the Lowry5 Mourinho stayed at The Lowry for 895 daysCredit: Rex FeaturesAnd do not even talk to him about ironing or cleaning.The Special One gave a fascinating insight into his lack of domestic prowess as he revealed why he loved living like spoof radio and TV creation Alan Partridge during his spell as Manchester United boss from May 2016 to last December.New Tottenham boss Mourinho returns to Old Trafford for the first time tonight since being axed by United almost 12 months ago.He looks far happier and relaxed now than he did in his final days at the Red Devils, which were frankly depressing.It was claimed that one of the reasons he was so miserable was because he spent his entire 2½-year reign living in a hotel, albeit in a very splendid one in the shape of The Lowry.This obviously led to comparisons with Steve Coogan’s TV character Partridge, the radio presenter who resided in the Linton Travel Tavern in Cambridgeshire.Aha!But it turns out being holed up in a hotel was NOT the cause of Mourinho’s misery in Manchester.When a reporter at yesterday’s pre-match press conference pointed out to him it was a strange way to live, he replied: “Is it? You know how I would be unhappy? I would be unhappy if I was in a house on my own.5 Jose Mourinho was compared to Steve Coogan’s character Alan Partridge for moving into a hotelCredit: BBC5 Jose Mourinho admitted he cannot cook, iron or clean which is why he was so happy at the Manchester hotelCredit: Getty – Contributor “I would have to clean, I don’t want that. I would have to iron, I don’t know how to.“I would have to cook. Fried eggs and sausages — that’s the only thing I can do. I would be very unhappy.“I lived in an amazing apartment, it was not a room. It was mine all the time.“It was not like after one week I had to leave. No, it was mine. I left everything there, I had my television, my books, my computer.“It was a flat, with a phone. ‘Bring me a coffee latte, please’ or ‘I don’t want to go down for dinner, bring my dinner up’.“I was watching football or doing work with one of my assistants I would ask ‘Bring us food’. I had everything. If I was alone in an apartment it would be much more difficult. I was fine, more than fine.”The hotel where he stayed was one of the few topics Mourinho was keen on talking about when asked about his spell at United.After taking over in May 2016 he won the Europa League and the Carabao Cup and led them to runners-up spot in the Premier League in 2018 before it all started to go pear-shaped.He was axed after the board became concerned about his results, style of play, relationships with their top stars and the lack of return on their investment in the transfer market that had seen them squander — sorry spend — almost £400million on 11 players. 5Mourinho, perhaps surprisingly, is still popular among most Stretford Enders who will give him a warm welcome back tonight.He claims to have remained on good terms with players and staff, including executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.But he was as reluctant to talk about United yesterday as he was when he was first booted out. He told reporters: “For you it’s like I left Manchester United yesterday.“It was not yesterday, it was almost one year ago. I am now Tottenham. Again, if you want to speak about United as an opponent, let’s speak about them as an opponent.“As for my history there, go to my office upstairs and I still have a couple of pictures of my Man United time and that’s it.“One with the Europa League and my son in Stockholm and one with the Carabao Cup when you get the cup at the top of Wembley.”Asked if they were his most cherished memories of United, he replied: “Of course, yeah.”So with Mourinho for a change, it was a picture — or rather two — that paints a thousand words.But make no mistake, his arrival at his press conference TWENTY MINUTES early indicated he is itching to show his old employers how he has changed.He would love nothing more than to extend his 100 per cent record as Spurs boss to four games and extend their lead over United in the Premier League to five points.All the talk is of Mourinho going back to Old Trafford, even if he was not keen on talking about it.MOST READ IN FOOTBALLTHROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battleTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticREF RELEASEDChampions League ref Vincic released by cops after arrest in prostitution raidKEANE DEALEx Man United youth ace David Jones says Roy Keane negotiated a contract for himWhen Tottenham’s press guru asked hacks to stop asking their manager questions about United, Mourinho said: “What they are doing is trying to make me speak about something I didn’t want to speak about when I left.“It’s not now the moment because I have a new club, a new life, that I do something I didn’t want to do when I left.

Huawei certain Messi will lead global take-over

first_imgBARCELONA, Spain:Having sold over 100 million smart phones last year, Chinese-based cell phone giants Huawei remains confident its partnership with Lionel Messi will now lead its organisation to the top of global phone sales soon. Messi is a five-time Ballon d’Or/FIFA World Player of the year winner and as the first player to achieve that historic feat, many consider him one of the all time football greats.Messi, who represents Spanish club Barcelona was recently named global brand ambassador for Huawei during a press conference held in the city.With Messi being born in Rosario Argentina in the same year as Huawei’s inception in 1987, the organisation has labelled the partnership as a “perfect fit”.long-term partnership”We are seeking a long term partnership. He is a win-win, look to see Huawei and Messi in the future,” Kevin Ho, president, Handset Business, Huawei Consumer BG said.The Messi and Huawei partnership is over a three year period, but no official figure was released on how much it will cost the Asian brand.Huawei is also the official Smart phone partner of London-based English football club Arsenal. It is set to launch their new P9 smart phone in London on April 6.Despite Huawei’s global sales last year, it remains one of the three top smart phone vendors in the world, behind Apple and Samsung.They, however, lead the Asian market by beating Xiaomi, Lenovo, Apple and Samsung to become the top smart phone vendor.The company hopes Messi can help raise its brand awareness in markets it has been making inroads in like Latin America, Asia and Europe where football enjoys a cult-like following.Meanwhile, according to Ho, five reasons which make Huawei devices stand out from others are, “design, craftsmanship, user experience, long battery life and excellent camera quality”.He stressed that Huawei is happy to be a sponsor of the Digicel Rising Star in Jamaica.last_img read more

CAAE-Ebola Massive Awareness Campaign Ends in Lofa

first_imgA massive awareness and sensitization campaign against the deadly Ebola virus under the banner of Citizens Action Against Ebola (CAAE) has  ended in seven administrative districts in Lofa County.However, initial preparations for the Ebola virus awareness and sensitization activities were characterized by some serious challenges and constraints that ranged from financial and logistical constraints in Monrovia and the various districts of Lofa County.The Ebola virus awareness and sensitization initiatives were carried out during the height of the medical crisis for almost six weeks by volunteers of the CAAE’s leadership in Lofa County.Historically, CAAE-Lofa Focus was organized to respond to emergency situations in all parts of Lofa County.During the month-long Ebola virus awareness, the CAAE-LF leadership and its dedicated volunteers were able to distribute dozens of anti-Ebola materials in highly entrenched cultural and religious communities.In addition, during the awareness activities, community residents and citizens were taught the uses of the different kinds of anti-Ebola hygiene and sanitation materials in all the seven administrative districts in Lofa County.Besides, during the Ebola awareness encounters with the weary citizens and residents of Lofa County, the CAAE-LF leadership was able to partner with the Ministry of Health and the medical authorities provided some technical and logistical assistance.The CAAE-LF was also able to secure minimum funding from the Lofa County administration and other locally based non-governmental organizations in some of the administrative districts.The CAAE-LF leadership told the Daily Observer in Monrovia that most of the funds generated came from their personal pockets and other generous prominent citizens, residents and well-meaning Liberians associated with the group.“We worked under very difficulties circumstances and with scarce resources in all the seven districts owing to the fact that our primary goal was  to eradicate this deadly disease that really killed many of our good citizens and residents in our county,” CAAE-LF Chairman Daniel Mulbah indicated.In a related development, in order for the CAAE-LF group to be able to carry out other sustained Ebola awareness during the post-Ebola period, the group has sounded an SOS appeal to all Lofa citizens and residents to contribute funds and materials for the pending proposed process.The group also explained that the post-Ebola challenges and constraints are so enormous to the extent that it would require lot of financial support to help citizens and residents to resettle in their socio-economic and agricultural undertakings.The CAAE-LF has also underscored the urgent need for consideration by Lofa citizens, residents and other Liberians residing at home and abroad to contribute whatever they can for the post-Ebola challenges among Lofa citizens.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

United States EPA, Enbridge reach settlement over 2010 oil spills

first_imgThe governments complaint was that Enbridge did not act quickly enough when the incidents occurred.Advertisement Those measures are:•           Implement an enhanced pipeline inspection and spill prevention program•           Implement enhanced measures to improve leak detection and control room operations•           Commit to additional leak detection and spill prevention requirements for a portion of Enbridge’s Line 5 that crosses the Straits of Mackinac in Michigan.Advertisement “The government’s complaint alleges that Enbridge owned or operated a 30 inch-pipeline, known as Line 6B, that ruptured near Marshall on July 25, 2010, discharging oil into the environment. Although the Line 6B rupture triggered numerous alarms in Enbridge’s control room, Enbridge failed to recognize a pipeline had ruptured until at least 17 hours later. In the meantime, Enbridge had restarted Line 6B on two separate occasions on July 26, 2010, pumping additional oil into the ruptured pipeline causing additional discharges of oil into the environment. Ultimately, Line 6B discharged at least 20,082 barrels of crude oil, much of which entered Talmadge Creek and flowed into the Kalamazoo River which flows to Lake Michigan. Flooding caused by heavy rains pushed the discharged oil over the river’s banks into its flood plains, and accelerated its migration over 35 miles downstream before it was contained. Enbridge later replaced Line 6B, which originates in Griffith, Ind., crosses the lower peninsula of Michigan and ends in Sarnia, Canada, with a new, larger pipeline, also known as Line 6B. The rupture and discharges were caused by stress corrosion cracking on the pipeline, control room misinterpretations and other problems, and pervasive organization failures at Enbridge.The complaint also alleges that on September 9, 2010, another Enbridge pipeline, known as Line 6A, discharged at least 6,427 barrels of oil which Romeoville, Ill., much of which flowed through a drainage ditch into a retention pond in Romeoville.”Cynthia Giles, Assistant Administrator for EPA’s Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance says this settlement will make sure these incidents do not happen again in the future.“This agreement puts in place advanced leak detection and monitoring requirements to make sure a disaster like this one doesn’t happen again. This comprehensive program – including an independent third party to audit compliance – will protect our waterways and the people who depend on them.” •           Create and maintain an integrated database for its Lakehead Pipeline System•           Enhance its emergency spill response preparedness programs by conducting four emergency spill response exercises to test and practice Enbridge’s response to a major inland oil spill•           Improve training and coordination with state and local emergency responders by requiring incident command system training for employees, provide training to local responders, participate in area response planning and organize response exercises•           Hire an independent third party to assist with review of implementation of the requirements in the settlement agreement WASHINGTON, D.C. – Enbridge and the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have reached an agreement regarding 2 oil spills back in 2010.The oil spills happened in Marshall, Michigan and Romeoville, Illinois.Under the settlement, Enbridge has agreed to pay at least $110 million in measures “to prevent spills and improve operations across nearly 2,000 miles of its pipeline system in the Great Lakes region.”- Advertisement -Enbridge will also be paying fines of $62 million for Clean Water Act violations and $61 million for million for spilling at least 20,082 barrels of oil in Marshall and $1 million for discharging at least 6,427 barrels of oil in Romeoville. They will also be paying $5.4 million in non-reimbursed costs that were paid by the government to cleanup the Marshall spill, they will also pay any costs that occur from that spill in the future.In a statement, the EPA says Enbridge must also now adhere to strict guidelines.“Today’s settlement includes an extensive set of specific requirements to prevent spills and enhance leak detection capabilities throughout Enbridge’s Lakehead pipeline system – a network of 14 pipelines spanning nearly 2,000 miles across seven states. Enbridge must also take major actions to improve its spill preparedness and emergency response programs. Under the settlement, Enbridge is also required to replace close to 300 miles of one of its pipelines, after obtaining all necessary approvals. Enbridge’s Lakehead System delivers approximately 1.7 million barrels of oil in the United States each day.”Advertisementlast_img read more

West Ham duo deserve England call, says Slaven Bilic

first_img1 Mark Noble Slaven Bilic says West Ham duo Aaron Cresswell and Mark Noble should be playing for England.Neither of the Hammers pair have been capped by the Three Lions and look unlikely to be included in Roy Hodgson’s squad for Euro 2016.But Bilic claims left-back Cresswell and midfielder Noble have been as good as any players in their respective positions this season and deserve international recognition.“I was manager of a national team for six years,” said former Croatia boss Bilic. “People would say this and that from the other clubs, and I didn’t mind it, but I don’t like to interfere like that.“But what I can say is that I haven’t seen many midfielders who are having a better season than Mark Noble is having.“And it’s not only Mark Noble. I haven’t seen a better left-back than Aaron Cresswell. So they should at least be mentioned.”Noble will lead West Ham out against Norwich at Carrow Road for his 24th Premier League start of the campaign.The Hammers, who won a thrilling FA Cup replay against Liverpool after extra time on Tuesday night, will be looking to get their European push back on track following last week’s defeat at Southampton.Norwich, by contrast, have lost their last five matches to slip into the relegation zone.West Ham lost three key players – Winston Reid, Joey O’Brien and Cheikhou Kouyate – to injuries against the Reds and are still without James Tomkins, Manuel Lanzini and Diafra Sakho.Bilic said: “It’s a big blow but I think we are going to put a strong team out. We have enough players.“We lost our last league game at Southampton and we have a good game to bounce back.“To stay up there we need to get something out of the game. Norwich lost five in a row but five games ago they were in a good situation.“They had a good transfer window. They are fighting and they need a result like crazy so I expect a tough game. But we are confident and if we play like we did against Liverpool we will have a good chance.”last_img read more

DONEGAL SFC: BRAVE NAOMH MUIRE GIVE NAOMH CONAILL A FRIGHT

first_imgPaul ‘The Yank’ Boyle was sent off as Naomh Muire were narrowly defeated on their return to the Donegal SFC against Naomh Conaill.Naomh Muire returned to senior championship action for the first time since 2000 and gave a great account of themselves pushing Naomh Conaill all the way in their Donegal SFC clash at The Banks. Naomh Muire won the Intermediate championship last season and in doing so ensured a return to senior championship football.However, Naomh Conaill were expected to power past the challenge of the men from the Lower Rosses, but that didn’t materialize as a young Naomh Muire side delivered an accomplished performance. Naomh Conaill in truth were glad to hear the final whistle in the end up as 14 man Naomh Muire rallied late on with a succession of scores.In what was an absolutely bruising championship game, scores were hard to come by in the opening half.Dara White scored a couple of lovely points in the opening period, but a spate of points from Dermot Molloy and Dara Gallagher gave Naomh Conaill a three point advantage at the break.Half time score Naomh Muire 0-03 Naomh Conaill 0-06 The second-half followed a similar theme to the first, it was physical, and there were bruising challenges exchanged by both sides all over the pitch.However, Naomh Muire were dealt a hammer blow ten minutes into the second-half when Paul ‘The Yank’ Boyle was sent off.The talismanic captain is a crucial player for Naomh Muire, and Naomh Conaill used that one man advantage to stretch their lead out to six midway through the second half.Naomh Conaill looked like they would cruise to victory, but a spirited fight-back from Naomh Muire almost earned them a draw.Two cracking scores from Padraig McCafferty reduced the deficit to four 0-12 to 0-08. Then scores from Shaun ‘The Yank’ Boyle and Harry Harden reduced the arrears to just two with a few minutes left.Naomh Muire continued to put Naomh Conaill on the back foot, but the Glenties men showed their experience at this level, and just managed to get over the line.They’ll be delighted with the win, but they were made to fight for it by a spirited, well-organised and determined Naomh Muire side.Final score – Naomh Muire 0-10 Naomh Conaill 0-12 Next up for Naomh Muire is St. Eunans in O’Donnell Park, but they’ll look forward to that challenge after proving they can hold their own with the best in the Donegal SFC.Naomh Conaill now face Malin in their next Donegal SFC fixture next weekend.DONEGAL SFC: BRAVE NAOMH MUIRE GIVE NAOMH CONAILL A FRIGHT was last modified: September 27th, 2014 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Donegal SFCNaomh ConaillNAOMH MUIREnewsSportlast_img read more

Man City respond to claims they hid millions to avoid breaking FFP rules

first_imgA year later, Der Spiegel claims, the club had to fill a £9.9million hole in their budget to meet FFP’s ‘break even’ requirement because of severance payments to sacked manager Roberto Mancini.The club’s solution, according to the German magazine, was to get three of its main backers – investment firm Aabar, the Abu Dhabi tourism authority and airline Etihad – to make up-front payments totalling £7.5million for increases in their sponsorship deals.And in a series of emails quoted from by Der Spiegel, dated between 2010 and 2015, club directors appear to state that Sheikh Mansour is the real source of a large chunk of the money that is purportedly flowing to East Manchester from Aabar, the tourism authority, Etihad and telecoms firm Etisalat.Der Spiegel’s report referred to an internal email which it says was sent by director Simon Pearce, who is quoted as saying that Aabar’s contribution is £3million, with £12million coming from “alternative sources provided by His Highness”.In December 2013, Pearce is reported by the German magazine to have written in an internal email that Etihad’s contribution “remains constant at 8m” despite it being officially listed at £35million.Der Spiegel reports that by 2015, the “supplement” had grown to a staggering £59.5million, according to an email it claims to have seen from City’s chief financial officer Jorge Chumillas. 3 Manchester City broke a host of records as they won the Premier League title last season – but could a transfer ban halt their period of dominance? City said at the time the original magazine article was published that they would not be commenting and that the attempt to damage their reputation was “organised and clear”.On Monday, Der Spiegel published a new article on what it alleges are City’s attempts to deceive UEFA by channelling millions of pounds of their owner Sheikh Mansour’s immense wealth into the club via their Abu Dhabi-based sponsors.City repeated the statement they issued last week, defending their position and referring to “out of context materials purportedly hacked or stolen from City Football Group and Manchester City personnel and associated people”.The club are likely to face more questions throughout the week.Citing emails between City bosses that it claims to have obtained, Der Spiegel alleges that Sheikh Mansour, a senior member of Abu Dhabi’s royal family, has been topping up City’s already lucrative sponsorship deals with Emirati companies with his own money – which if true would be a clear breach of FFP’s rules against “related parties” pumping cash into clubs.According to the emails, Sheikh Mansour had “supplemented” City’s “Abu Dhabi partnership deals” by £149.5million by the time the club won the first of three Premier League titles under his ownership in 2012. City recently celebrated the 10-year anniversary of Sheikh Mansour’s takeover Manchester City have again defended themselves from accusations they have tried to cheat Financial Fair Play rules, by hiding millions of pounds of owner Sheikh Mansour’s private fortune from their books.Last week, German magazine Der Spiegel published a story which claimed the Premier League champions struck a secret deal with European football’s governing body UEFA in 2014 to avoid a potential Champions League ban for breaching FFP regulations.center_img Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour 3 3 A spokesperson for Etihad denied the airline was not the real source of the money it paid to City.“The airline’s financial obligations, associated with the partnership of the club and the broader City Football Group, have always been, and remain, the sole liability and responsibility of Etihad Airways,” the statement said.“This is reflected in the airline’s audited accounts. Our partnership with Manchester City and the broader City Football Group continues to deliver important ongoing and accumulative returns on our investments.”The second part of Der Spiegel’s series was released on Tuesday and alleged that City set up a project group to circumvent FFP rules. City responded to Der Spiegel with the statement issued last week.UEFA said it “cannot comment on specific cases due to confidentiality obligations” but the governing body is certain to come under pressure in the coming weeks to reopen its FFP investigation into City’s finances.last_img read more

CATHAL’S GAA BLOG: DONEGAL KINGS DEFEAT STUDENTS FROM QUEEN’S

first_imgCATHAL Mac Suibhne’s Donegal GAA Blog: Dún na nGall Kings Defeat Students From QueensAnother win recorded for Donegal tonight in Ballybofey against Queens University and whatever about the epitaphs of this year’s McKenna Cup as regards qualification and the blooding of players, Jim McGuinness can look back on a tournament where he’s trebled his win rate. He again picked a strong side for this encounter with the Belfast students; the Neils, McGee and Gallagher, in from the start after seeing second half action in Armagh on Sunday.The team knew a big score was essential if they were to have any chance of a semi-final spot and Michael Murphy and Colm McFadden didn’t waste time in getting scores on the board. Donegal ran incessantly at the Queens defence and drew plenty of frees in the process. It can be taken for granted at times but it is such a huge advantage the team possesses in having two of the games deadliest free-takers; and better again having one on either side of the field.The hosts registered 1-7 in the first half including another thunderbolt of a goal from Murphy, this time from even further out than his effort against Tyrone in O’Donnell Park. The students managed to net two goals in the opening period and that is something that won’t please McGuinness or indeed Damian Diver, who was brought on board this year for his expertise in defence. Moments into the second half Ryan Rafferty bagged his third goal of the night for the visitors.It became fairly clear early on that Monaghan were going to have things much their own way against Fermanagh and in turn pip Donegal to the best runner-up spot – Tyrone, Derry and Cavan all qualified safely as group winners.Jim again used his bench at half time with Rory Kavanagh, David Walsh and the returning Christy Toye entering the fray; Christy hadn’t pulled on a Donegal jersey since that wonderful day sixteen months ago in the All-Ireland Final. He also endured a long spell away from the action from 2009 to 2011 with an Achilles problem so unfortunately the St Michael’s man is no stranger to long injury lay-offs; hopefully he’ll get a good run at training over the next few months as he always does a job for his side and is a key member of the squad. Murphy got things going again for his team after the resumption, this time a point off his ‘weaker’ left foot – that is if there is anything weak in his repertoire. This of course was Michael’s first McKenna Cup campaign for Donegal in a number of years having previously been tied to playing with his college, DCU. He looks as sharp as ever and if he can keep this form and fitness up it should be another big year for the maestro.Stephen McLaughlin saw some more action tonight after making a brief cameo at the Atheltic Grounds at the weekend and he got his name on the score sheet with a point midway through the second period. That just leaves Kilybegs’ Hugh McFadden as the last of newcomers to the panel who has yet to see some action so expect him to be given a run at some stage in league.The black card was much talked about prior to the McKenna Cup but it didn’t have as big an impact as many had anticipated; it did rear its head more conspicuously in tonight’s game though with students receiving their marching orders and having to be replaced.Donegal made a good fist of things in the second half as regards racking up a high score, finishing with 3-17; with Monaghan though posting 2-20 in Brewster Park and having a superior points difference coming into tonight, they were always in the driving seat and they go on to meet Cavan this weekend; Tyrone and Derry make up the semi-final quartet.The one worry on the night was a knock picked up by Rory Kavanagh; we don’t have the strongest of panels but this is especially true around midfield – Kavanagh and Gallagher fully fit are a must for Donegal so that will certainly be a headache for the management team if it turns out to be anything more than just a knock. So pre-season is done with and next up its National League and O’Moore Park in Portlaoise is the first port of call for green and gold supporters. In theory at least the players should hit the ground running in the league and be well in contention having got some game time into the legs in the last ten days. While undoubtedly Division One is a higher standard, once you go beneath the top three or four teams the rest are on a par with those in the second tier so there’s no such thing as easy games.Winning the league is a realistic target for McGuinness but it will be anything but straight forward. It worked well in 2011, when we last played in Division Two, losing just one game out of eight and getting better and better as the Championship went on after that. There’ll be no such luxuries available this year – Derry in Celtic Park in our Ulster Championship opener will be a huge challenge and the team must be firing on all cylinders for that.That tough fixture makes the league even more important; despite getting relegated with the draw against eventual All-Ireland winners Dublin in the last game last season, McGuinness’ men played well that day and it set them up for the battle against Tyrone a few weeks later; and no doubt Jim will be hoping that an appearance on league final day in Croke Park in April could set the boys up nicely for Derry.CATHAL’S GAA BLOG: DONEGAL KINGS DEFEAT STUDENTS FROM QUEEN’S was last modified: January 16th, 2014 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:CATHAL’S GAA BLOG: DONEGAL KINGS DEFEAT STUDENTS FROM QUEEN’Slast_img read more

Donegal League clubs, members warned over social media remarks

first_imgThe Donegal League has said it will take disciplinary action against members who are posting what they have referred to as ‘inappropriate’ and ‘unacceptable’ comments on social media.Clubs had previously been warned about their members’ social media activities.However, at the weekend, all clubs were sent a fresh reminder by the League. The League Executive has become concerned that some registered Donegal League players have posted ‘inappropriate comments regarding recent matches and discipline matters’.The league advised clubs to inform players and members that they face the wrath of the League’s Disciplinary Committee should they be found to bring the game into disrepute with their comments.Donegal League clubs, members warned over social media remarks was last modified: April 30th, 2018 by Staff WriterShare 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:Donegal Leaguesocial medialast_img read more

Stargazer UV Neon Hair Gel : ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!

first_imgI used this on my dark haired daughter when she dressed up for school as an oompa loompa and even on her dark hair this was very bright green. I probably wouldn’t recommend this if you have longer hair, it worked in that it turned my hair green but it didn’t look great. Having said that if you have shorter hair i think it would do the trick perfectly. Great for joker costume, washed out easily, it did get into my shirt collar quite a bit, but washed out fine. Brilliant for my sons oompa loompa costume.So much better than sprayAmazing colour. Great if you want to change your hair colour.ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!Stargazer UV Neon Hair Gel, RedStargazer Neon Hair GelUV ReactiveEasy to Apply ApplicatorEasily Removed with ShampooPerfect for Clubs, Parties and Festivals Does the job very well, vibrant colour and washes out easily. (but don’t get caught out in the rain). I find this is very sticky, does not brush out well, i know it’s a gel colour but i have used gels before to keep my hair in place, brushes out easy. It’s very easy to apply and remove. Highly recommendedplease be aware that after a while of continuous usage, it will make your hair go stiff. If you found this review helpful, please tick the helpful box below. I used this on my beard along with baubles for an xmas party. I was looking for something that could be washed quickly and this ticked the box and performed perfectly. I managed to apply without issue and it lasted well. 5 stars for the fact that one tube managed to actually cover my dark, past-shoulder length hair. I only did the top layer, so not all my hair was pink, but it was enough. Be aware that a) the pink will transfer easily from your hair to anything else, and b) the gel dries slightly hard. A fair trade off for the colour you get though, at least for me. It colours the hair so well. It’s so bright and easy to use. The delivery was extremely fast as well. I had serious doubts as i have very long and thick hair but this gel thing was insanely easy to apply, i could even style my hair with it. It dried in no time and it looked so so good. Does exactly what it says on the tin. It doesn’t go very far if you are applying it relatively liberally, but seems to be very reactive to uv. I was using the product in a recent production with uv lighting and the result was fantastic. My daughter got this for her hair. It lasts a surprisingly long time and gives a good neon effect. It washes out easily afterwards. Used this for my joker costume. I could not believe the results. I’m no make up artist and never coloured hair, yet everyone thought ingot it done by someone who knows what theybare doing. Got loads of compliments through out the night on the hair. People could not believe it was only coloured gel. Was slightly concerned about it coming out, but was pleasantly surprise, that it came out easily with just normal shampoo after 2 washes. Would highly recommend and will definitely use it again. Never found anything this good. Usually neon temporary hair products come out significantly better on blonde/light hair than on dark hair. But this product works so well on all hair colours. Easy to apply, however we found applying it using the brush nozzle straightened out the curls in our hair and made it set straight. And it is very chalky, so it would be difficult to style hair after applying this. Other than that, it’s amazing. Easy to apply, stayed on all night. Hair goes a bit stiff, but that’s to be expected. I have blonde, thin hair, but it washed out easily with no color left. Kids love these, nice and bright and wash out easily. Only downside is they dry stiff and flake everywhere if you brush your hair. Well this stuff is amazinga few tips – use gloves to apply. It’s does wash off but it’s easier with gloves. Once you’ve put it on, brush through, style and try not to touch your hair lots. It will come off on your hand. After you’ve applied, use a little hair serum to smooth it as it looks a but frizzy – or maybe that’s just my hair:). I got loads of compliments just wearing a little in strands through my hair. I’m off to buy more colours?. Bright and colourful on my pony’s mane for a festive competition. Omg this stuff is sooooo green. Bought for my son to be the hulk, it was perfect. Easy to apply, didnt come off, rub off on anything. It is the brightest green you can imagine.Washed out easily with shampoo and no risidual colouration. Worked really well in dark hair, great stuff for fancy dress.
