Mother of Cleft Lip Baby Appeals for Help

first_imgThe mother of a two year-old baby girl, Helena Tugbe, of New Kru Town is appealing to the medical community in Liberia to come to her baby’s rescue and give her a fresh chance to live.“Helena was born like that,” Ms. Margaret Clarke told the Daily Observer in an interview recently. “And being poor, we could not get help for her.”Originally born in Sehnkwehn, Sinoe County, Ms. Clarke, a mother of five children is presently selling rice-bread to make ends meet, since she left her husband over a year ago to find help in Monrovia for her baby.“I feel sometimes that I may never get help for Helena and she will grow up to be miserable,” Ms. Clarke said. And she wants the medical community in Monrovia to help. Ms. Clarke does not earn enough, just barely for a day’s living, which makes her situation dire. “I know there are good people in Liberia that can help my daughter and I want them to know that I’m in need of their help,” she said.Despite her condition, little Helena does not live in her own world; she plays along with kids in her New Kru Town community.“I always look at her as she plays with her friends,” Ms. Clarkes said, “but the older ones look at her with some concern because the cleft lip makes her mouth to open all the time,” she said.Ms. Clarke said she had an offer from a Liberian doctor to help her daughter but the doctor suggested he could only do the surgery to correct her lip at the Jackson F. Doe Hospital in Tappita, Nimba County.“I could not travel to Tappita for the surgery because I had no money to make the trip,” she told the Daily Observer, “and I am begging the medical community to help me.”Ms. Clarke said it is every mother’s joy to see that their children are in good health, without physical defects. “Helen’s problem worries me a lot because as a mother I am not able to give her the joy that she would need in the future,” she said.“Let anyone who wants to help call your number (0777-458-730) and get to me so that I will not keep worrying about my daughter’s future,” she said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img

Court’s ruling a major victory for Guyana – Opposition Leader

first_imgOpposition Leader Bharrat JagdeoCCJ consequential orders…as President commits to abiding by CCJ orders…as Jagdeo proposes urgent meeting with GrangerOpposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo said that the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) consequential orders handed down on Friday categorising the APNU/AFC coalition as a “caretaker Government” is a major victory for not only the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), but the country as a whole.The Trinidad-based regional Court reaffirmed that the December passage of the No-Confidence Motion gave effect to Article 106 (6) and (7) which means that the Cabinet, including the President, should resign and call elections in three months. This, according to CCJ President Justice Adrian Saunders, means that the Government is now in a caretaker role.According to Jagdeo at a press conference moments after the hearing, “if something (about) this ruling that all Guyana should be proud of, is that the CCJ has finally categorised this Government as a caretaker Government. Nothing else matters. That alone was great for me. If they had only said that and nothing else in the ruling then that would have (still) been a major victory for me, for the People’s Progressive Party and or all of Guyana”.The Opposition has long been insisting that the coalition should be in caretaker mode since the December passage of the motion but the Government consistently refused to acknowledge this, saying that nowhere in the Constitution contained “caretaker” provisions. But Friday’s Court order, Jagdeo said, settled this.“The CCJ has pronounced definitively on this matter. So all of Guyana, we have a caretaker Government now with a diminished role. The CCJ said it must act in that manner, as a caretaker Government and that is has limited legal authority and it must govern the country in a manner consistent with a caretaker Government,” he posited, adding that the coalition is now in Government for the sole purpose of holding elections.Moreover, the Opposition Leader went on to say that he respects the fact that the Trinidad-based Court was wary of the separation of powers and, thus, did not grant his request for the Court to fix a date for the hosting of polls in Guyana.“So (the CCJ says) ‘we’re not telling you which date; you gotta respect the Constitution’… ‘Honour the Constitution in three months and you’re caretaker until elections are held’,” Jagdeo noted.To this end, he pointed out too that the regional Court was clear in its order that like the Government, the Guyana Elections Commission (GECOM) is also expected to exercise integrity in carrying out its responsibilities, which is, primarily, to conduct general elections.As such, the Opposition Leader contended that GECOM will now have to uphold the Constitution and prepare for fresh elections within three months, which was triggered by the validity of the No-Confidence Motion.This, according to Jagdeo, strikes at the very heart of the position by the David Granger administration that elections would be held only when GECOM is ready.“So they can do whatever they want and whenever, and only when they’re ready in December then we should go to elections. But the CCJ said ‘no, GECOM has to comply with the Constitution of Guyana’”.On this note, Jagdeo put the Chief Elections Officer, Keith Lowenfield, as well as other staff at the elections commission, on notice that they should be preparing for the hosting of polls in accordance with the Constitution, which calls for elections in three months.Caretaker PresidentBut in a video address to the nation later on Friday, the now caretaker President David Granger still maintains that GECOM, not the executive, is in charge of the elections.“GECOM has to advise the President on its readiness to conduct elections… Credible elections are essential to representative democracy. The credibility of the elections is dependent, in part, on the integrity of the Official List of Electors. I maintain that a contaminated list can vitiate the credibility of elections,” the Head of State posited.The President’s pronouncement is reflective of his Government’s push for the conduct of House-to-House registration. In fact, Chair of the People’s National Congress Reform (PNCR) – the largest party in the APNU fraction of the coalition— Volda Lawrence, had stated last week that with a new list, the coalition is confident of not only returning to office but also garnering better results at the upcoming polls.But it was recently revealed that a United Nations Needs Assessment Mission (NAM) had found last year that there was no guarantee that a new voter’s list would be more credible.“It is the view of the Mission that there is no certainty that a new voters’ list will have more credibility than the current list and that stakeholders will trust it more. Furthermore, any list created close to the elections will likely be criticised as political motivated,” read more

May he rest in peace,” said Senator Harte.John Watson paid his respects to Cllr Culbert on behalf of the entire Chamber of Commerce in Letterkenny.“It was with great sadness that we learnt of the passing of Councillor Tadhg Culbert. Over the years Tadgh has been supportive of Letterkenny Chamber and the entire business community of Letterkenny.“He was a pleasure to work with and always had the interests of Letterkenny at the forefront of his mind. He was passionate about his adopted home of Letterkenny and was such an integral part of Main Street always encouraging of the development in recent years.“On a personal basis Tadgh always had time for people and was clearly a people person. His friendly smile and sunny nature were infectious and he always had a helpful word of encouragement. “As a Councillor and during his time as Mayor he was committed to the town of Letterkenny and wanted to see it thrive. He will be sadly missed by Letterkenny Chamber . Our sympathies go out to his family at this sad time.”Hotelier and former Letterkenny Town Councillor Terry McEniff said Tadgh brought a smile to anyone’s face he met.“There is no question the town will be a poorer place for the loss of Tadgh.“He always brought a smile to people’s face because he was always full of craic. “He was a Tipperary man but he was so proud of his adopted home and county of Letterkenny and Donegal.“My thoughts and prayers are with his family. He was taken form us all too early,” he said.Senator Brian O Domhnaill said“Tadhg was a personable, affable and likable gentleman. While we all knew of his illness, I am greatly saddened today to learn of his passing. I will always remember him fondly.“I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to his wife Hilda and his children Andrew and Lisa. Ar dheis lámh dea gó raibh a anam uasal.”Former Town Councillor PJ Blake said he will miss his close friend in so many ways.“As well as being a fellow councillor I will always count Tadhg as a friend first and foremost.“I don’t think we ever had a cross word and he always had the good of Letterkenny and Donegal at heart.“He will be missed by myself and many, many other for a long time,” said Mr Blake.Mayor of Letterkenny, Cllr Dessie Larkin, said Cllr Culbert was proud of being re-elected to Letterkenny Town Council and described himself as the “comeback kid.”MORE DONEGAL THAN MANY DONEGAL PEOPLE – TRIBUTES FLOW IN FOR CLLR CULBERT was last modified: April 17th, 2013 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)last_img

DONEGAL WOMAN LAUNCHES CASE AGAINST UNCLE WHO ABUSED HER

first_imgA Donegal mum-of-three who was raped and sexually abused as a child by her godfather has launched an action for damages.Marcella Breslin (31), Emerald Drive, Killybegs is suing Patrick Gillespie (54), her godfather and uncle-in-law of Carrrickmagrath, Ballbofey.Gillespie was in 2008 jailed for ten years with three years suspended after being convicted of rape and sexual assault of Ms Breslin when she was aged between 12 and 16. Ms Breslin has claimed that between 1993-1997, he deliberately and knowingly perpetrated acts of sexual assault and sexual abuse on her in his home and also once in her grandmother’s house at Athayvooge, Killybegs and in forest areas in the county.It is claimed the instances of abuse began as touching in an intimate manner and graduated to full sexual intercourse and while Ms Breslin did what she could to prevent rape, Gillespie overpowered her physically and psychologically and it continued for upwards of four years.As a result, ,it is claimed Ms Breslin suffered personal injuries, loss and damage.Ms Breslin’s Counsel Sasha Gayer said Gillespie was Ms Brelsin’s godfather and uncle law and in a position of trust and she would stay in Gillespie’s house and was close to his wife, her aunt.The assaults began when Ms Breslin was twelve years of age. Gillespie also brought her a local forest area where he would rape her.“It had a profound and lasting effect on her. She tried to take her own life when she was 16 years of age,” counsel said.The criminal case, Counsel said, caused a rift in the extended family. Gillespie’s sentence was upheld by the Court of Criminal Appeal.In evidence Ms Breslin said on Friday nights when her friends were thinking about what to wear going out she would go home because Gillespie called between 6.30 to 7pm and would take her to a forest and rape her, before dropping her home again.“I would meet my friend after and she would be trying to decide what to wear. I was thinking I wish that was all of my problems,” she said.“I was absolutely frightened to death to be followed to America,” she said.The case before Ms Justice Elizabeth Dunne and a jury continues.DONEGAL WOMAN LAUNCHES CASE AGAINST UNCLE WHO ABUSED HER was last modified: November 15th, 2012 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:HIGH COURTMARCELLA BRESLINPATRICK GILLESPIElast_img

FAMILY FEAR MYSTERY ANIMAL KILLED THEIR CALVES

first_imgA farming family fear a large animal ate two of their young calves alive after a gruesome incident on their Co Donegal farm.The blooded remains of the one year old calves were found half-eaten on the farm outside Convoy, near Raphoe, yesterday morning.The one year old animals, which would have been a considerable size, had a number of their ribs broken. The family at the centre of the attack and animal welfare officers are baffled as to who or what killed the animals.The attack will again raise suspicions that a large wild cat is still roaming the north-west after sighting in recent years.Nicola Gregg, whose husband found the dead animals, said it was a very upsetting experience to think about what the calves went through before they died.She said she simply didn’t know what had attacked but suspected it may have ben a larger animal. “I know there have been escaped wild big cats like pumas before here and in other countries and I’m convinced something like that has happened here.“If this is the case, it is only a matter of time before this animal or animals do this again and farmers should be mindful of that.”She said they would be taking steps to protect other livestock on their farm.“My husband heard the calves roaring and when he went down to count them two were missing. When he investigated he saw they had basically been eaten alive.“Their heads were fine it was just the stomach area, and the back and tail. They demolished more or less. “Their ribs were broken which made us think it must have been something really strong to have done that.“My husband said he had never seen anything like that in his life. It’s sad and it is worrying.”Mr Gregg had the animals removed and disposed of.Local RSPCA inspector Kevin McGinley said he found it hard to believe that a dog or dogs would have been able to inflict such damage on such animals. However he said because the animals had been disposed of, there was no definite way of identifying what had happened to them.“We were not officially informed about the matter but I would find it difficult to accept that dogs were able to do this.“These animals were a year old and they would be a considerable size so it would take a lot to take both of them down,” he said.FAMILY FEAR MYSTERY ANIMAL KILLED THEIR CALVES was last modified: September 28th, 2012 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:attackedcalvesdonegalfarlast_img

first_imgPat The Cope Gallagher MEPIreland Midlands / North West MEP Pat the Cope Gallagher has confirmed today that the total budget for the PEACE programme for the period 2014 to 2020 will be EUR 200 million.Mr Gallagher also confirmed that in the coming weeks a public consultation on the draft operational programme will be launched.The announcement is a major boost for many Donegal groups which rely on PEACE funding. The main aims of the PEACE Programme are to reinforce progress towards a peaceful and stable society in the Border Region and the North and to promote reconciliation by assisting projects which help to reconcile communities and contribute towards a shared society.Pat the Cope Gallagher MEP stated in the European Parliament: “The EU budget agreement provides a special allocation of EUR 150 million to continue the PEACE programme. An additional contribution by the British government will bring the total amount available under the fund for the period 2014 to 2020 to EUR 200 million.“The PEACE programme is vitally important to Northern Ireland and the entire border region of Ireland including the counties of Louth, Monaghan, Cavan, Leitrim, Sligo and Donegal.

DONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEREPORTS SUNDAYBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionRathmullan Celtic 2 Gweedore Celtic 2 A late goal poachers goal from Rathmullan Celtic’s talismanic striker Eamonn Sheridan salvaged a crucial point for the Seasiders after a pulsating encounter at the Flagpole Field saw the Battle of the Hoops end in a dramatic 2-2 draw which leaves Rathmullan a point clear at the summit of the Premier Division with a game in hand over Glenea United who made ground with a win at home over Kilmacrennan Celtic.After last weekend’s heroic win away at St Catherine’s, Rathmullan came into Sunday’s encounter with their tails up despite the fact they were missing midfielder Eoin Sheridan, sharp shooter Dara Patton and player/manager Paddy Sheridan through injury. The management of Paddy Sheridan and Paddy Burger called upon Barry Mooney, Glen Bovaird and Eric Roberts to deputise for the trio and they got off to the perfect start after four minutes when Aaron Mc Clafferty and Niall Doherty played some neat one touch football to set up Eamonn Sheridan who gathered the ball at the edge of the area before cutting inside the Gweedore defence and slotting a drive low into the opposite corner to give an early lead to the Seasiders. The home side piled on the pressure but could not double their advantage. Gweedore duly punished them on the half hour mark when Colin Ferry crossed into Seimí Uí Domhnaill who volleyed superbly into the top corner from 10 yards to equalise proceedings. With 15 minutes remaining before the interval the Seasiders completely dominated the play but somehow failed to take the lead, Shea Coyle and Kieran Gorman both seeing their efforts cleared off the line. Niall Doherty’s venomous strike on the stroke of half time skimmed the crossbar of the Gweedore goal.The Hoops picked up the momentum in the second half with Barry Mooney guilty of missing a gilt edged opportunity inside the area on 55 minutes. The Seasiders gifted Gweedore the lead on 75 minutes when Kieran Gorman mis-hit a pass in defence which went straight to Chris Porter who calmly passed the ball Colin Ferry who simply struck the ball into an empty net. The stalwart defender Gorman made amends for this error as he drove the Hoops forward in search of the equaliser and the Seasiders pressed the Gweedore side into their own half for the remainder of the contest. With 10 minutes remaining Glenn Bovaird had a strike from the edge of the area which seemed to be blocked by the hand of the Gweedore defender inside the area but the penalty claims were to no avail. Ryan Connolly and Niall Doherty used their skills to try and unlock a stern Gweedore defence which was proving difficult. As the final whistle loomed Shea Coyle saw his flick inside the area go perilously wide before their persistent attacking finally paid dividends. On 88 minutes Kieran Gorman struck a ferocious low drive from 20 yards which was heading goal bound before Eamonn Sheridan added the slightest touch to guide the ball into the bottom left corner much to the relief of the title chasing Hoops. Rathmullan could and should easily have claimed all three points but were delighted to salvage a late draw with Paddy Burger and Niall Doherty impressing all game long with a stunning second half from Ryan Connolly, while Chris Porter led the Gweedore rearguard well. Referee: Paddy DuffyGlenea United 3 Kilmacrennan Celtic 1Glenea got their league challenge back on track with a hard earned victory over Kilmacrennan. The away side opened brightly and Trevor Alcorn went close twice in the opening minutes but his efforts were well saved by Joe Coll. The home side started to come more into the game as the half progressed and started to control the game but were finding it hard to create any clear cut chances although Donal Coll and Sean McBride both went close to opening the scoring. Kilmacrennan’s closest effort was a Sean Sandilands free-kick that was well saved. Glenea opened the scoring on 35 minutes when, after good work by Ryan McFadden and Sean Maguire down the left, allowed McFadden to pull the ball back and Kevin Mulhern who was on hand to fire the ball home. Kilmacrennan equalised on 43 minutes when Trevor Alcorn’s free-kick took a deflection and found its way to the corner of the net. In the 2nd half Kilmacrennan started strongly and Eddie Doherty went close on a couple of occasions. Glenea retook the lead on 65 minutes when Sean Maguire’s through ball found Sean McBride and he volleyed the ball home from 15 yards. Kilmacrennan tried hard to get back into the game but were unable to find a way past the home defence and as the clock ticked on they began to leave themselves open to the counter attack and on 87 minutes Denis Boyle’s through ball found McBride and he slotted the ball home at the second attempt. Best for Glenea were Kevin Mulhern and Sean McBride, while Trevor Alcorn and Sean Sandilands were best for Kilmacrennan. Referee: Marty read more

RETURN TO SENDER! HOW DONEGAL EIRCODE EXPERIMENT WENT BADLY WRONG

first_imgBrendan’s letter.A local civil servant has pleaded with An Post to make the new Eircode service ‘safe’ – after a postal experiment didn’t exactly go to the letter of the law.Brendan Flanagan works in the Maternity Benefits Section at the Department of Social Protection in Buncrana.Concerned that thousands of clients would receive their correspondence, Brendan decided to take matters into his own hands.He explained that with huge volume of mail outgoing every day, he decided to test the new codes, to see if he and his fellow workers could rely on them.“Firstly I went to the to the Eircode.ie website and entered “McCarter Rd, Buncrana” and several options came up, including “Intreo Centre”, which would be our address for Maternity Benefit.“So I chose that option, and the code came up, which is “F93 CH79”. Armed with this information, I addressed a letter to myself, with just my name and postcode, and sent it out through our internal mail, which was franked by our machine.“Normally most letters posted arrive the next day, and I was awaiting the delivery on Tuesday morning. It didn’t arrive. Nor did it arrive on Wednesday or Thursday. But on Friday it was returned with a Post Office sticker on it, informing us that it had an “insufficient address” and that they were unable to deliver it.”Brendan revealed the postage for this item is 66 cents, and he believes that An Post charge a fee for letters with “an insufficient address”, in order to return to the sender.He says he would like to now appeal to An Post to get their house in order before rolling out the system.“I would like to now ask An Post, to refund this fee to the us, and to let us know when it is safe to use the new postcode, as we in Maternity Benefit Section, strive to provide a good service to our customers,” he said.Ironically Brendan’s department is located in the same town which this week also gave an example of why the humble postman may know a lot more than the multi-million euro Eircode system.A letter addressed simply to – “Your man Henderson. That boy with the glasses who’s doing the PhD up there in Queens in Belfast, Buncrana, Co Donegal” managed to find it’s owner!RETURN TO SENDER!
