APPEAL TO ROAD USERS AS WINTER TIME BEGINS

first_imgWith the time having changed signalling the return to darker evenings, the Donegal Road Safety Working Group is urging all road users especially cyclists and pedestrians to stay safe and be seen. Already this year, 127 people have been killed and many more have been seriously injured in road traffic collisions in Ireland.The sad reality is that many of these deaths and serious injuries could have been avoided, said Donegal County Council’s Road Safety Officer, Brian O’Donnell. “Our message is simple. This means wearing a hi-viz jacket and being seen if you are walking, running, cycling or riding a motorbike. Slow down if you are a driver, especially when sharing the road with vulnerable road users. Everyone wearing a seat belt, front and rear on every trip and ensuring children are properly restrained too. Do not drive while being distracted by a mobile phone, never drive while impaired, whether through drink, drugs or driver fatigue and pay attention to what is happening when you are using the road.“With evenings getting darker much earlier, and fewer hours of daylight during the day, we all need to work together to keep people safe. Road users need to make an extra effort to look out for children, pedestrians and cyclists. Pedestrians, joggers and cyclists should wear bright clothing, reflective jackets or armbands, to ensure they are seen by other road-users when out on the roads. Cyclists must use front and rear lights and reflectors and we also stress the importance of them wearing a helmet.”He added they also urged all motorists to check and ensure their vehicles are fit for winter.“Tyres must be in good condition and meet the legal requirement. A defective tyre could lead to a serious accident. All lights must be clean, working and correctly adjusted. Remember to use dipped headlights when driving in poor weather. Our advice is that if your vehicle wipers are switched on, so should your dipped headlights. If you have fog lights, use them when the weather is foggy, but remember it is illegal to use these lights at other times. Listen to the weather and travel advice on the news and if needs be, leave extra time to ensure that you arrive safely. “We all need to play our part in road safety, especially as it gets darker earlier. Road users must accept their responsibility to think about their actions on the roads and modify their driving to cope with winter conditions. Similarly, pedestrians and cyclists need to stay safe and be seen,” he said.APPEAL TO ROAD USERS AS WINTER TIME BEGINS was last modified: October 27th, 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)last_img read more

Horgan issues appeal for fans to get behind Harps ahead of crucial clash

first_imgFinn Harps, a team that was tipped for relegation at the start of the season by the pundits, is still in a very strong position to stay in the Premier Division. Ollie Horgan’s side was given little chance of survival in the top flight but the part-time outfit has battled against the odds to be five points clear of second from bottom Wexford Youths.But the time now has come to make sure of safety by defeating bottom of the table Longford Town tonight at Finn Park. Ollie Horgan and his squad has been focusing on this crucial clash since Tuesday and a game plan has been fine-tuned that will hopefully deliver the three points against the Midlanders. It’s been a tough time for the manager and players, who really need the presence of a big home crowd tonight to get a positive result.A victory in Ballybofey and defeat for Wexford would put Harps eight points ahead. That would be a significant advantage with eight league fixtures remaining.The part-time players and manager have given a huge commitment all season. In the past couple of months physically and mentally that has taken its toll so Horgan says everyone associated with the team needs the lift that the home fans can give them tonight.“Tonight is a huge game for us as it is for Longford who are coming to Finn Park looking for a victory that might give them a chance of avoiding automatic relegation. Wexford Youths also have a very big match at home to Derry City. So for us and those two teams, the importance of tonight is massive. “The players will give it everything on the pitch and they want to see a big support there and be vocal to try and give us the edge and that bit of luck to get the three points.’In teams news Damian McNulty remains absent due a knee injury while striker Ruairi Keating is also out after he was withdrawn on Monday night at Oriel Park with concussion. Adam Hanlon is rated doubtful but on a more positive note Ethan Boyle returns after serving a one-match ban while Barry Molloy and Sean Houston are available after not taking any part in Monday night’s match against the league champions. U19 players B.J. Banda and Mark Coyle will also be with the senior squad for tonight’s match.Harps have already defeated Longford twice this season.  At the end of March a second half Ryan Curran penalty was enough to decide the outcome at Finn Park. Goals in either half from Josh Mailey and Tony McNamee made it a 2-0 win for Horgan’s side at the City Calling Stadium in late June.  Kick-off time tonight in Ballybofey is 8.00.Horgan issues appeal for fans to get behind Harps ahead of crucial clash was last modified: September 16th, 2016 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:fansfinn harpsLongford TownOllie HorganSportlast_img read more

COMMUNITY ALERT: BURGLARS TARGET HOMES AS ELDERLY PENSIONER ROBBED

first_imgCRUEL THIEVES robbed a pensioner while at Mass at the weekend and tried to rob another in her home – as Gardaí warned that burglars are operating in Donegal this week.The latest victim – a woman in her 80s – returned to her home in Glengad in Inishowen to find the house ransacked.Christmas presents were among the items take in the raid. Local people have put together a €1,000 award leading to the capture of those responsible. There have been a number of other burglaries across Co Donegal in the past 48 hours, with warnings in rural areas, particularly in Fanad and Inishowen.Three men tried to break into the home of a 75-year-old woman in Kerrykeel in another incident.“It is just ridiculous,” said a neighbour of the Glengad victim, “how anyone could raid the home of a pensioner while she was at Mass is beyond belief.”Anyone with information on the Glengad burglary should call Gardaí on 074 93 74109. Other incidents in the county came just hours after Gardaí issued a public Christmas safety message.Thieves have also targeted revellers out and about over the weekend, with Nicolle Toland having cash and a phone stolen in Letterkenny.Sgt Paul Wallace told Donegal Daily: “Unfortunately there are people who see Christmas as a time to steal, an opportunity.“The lead in to the busy Christmas period is identified as an ideal opportunity to promote crime prevention and encourage awareness.“Although it is the time of the year where the majority of us will practice the tradition of giving gifts, unfortunately the majority of burglars view it very differently and see the festive season as an opportune time to break into a home.” To help prevent burglaries from happening over the festive season the Garda Community Relations Bureau would like to share the following tips:Going Away For the Festive Holiday• Avoid discussing any holiday plans or planned Christmas outings on any types of social media or in public where strangers may hear or view details of your absence from home.• Make your home look like someone is living in it. • Cancel any newspaper or milk deliveries.• Trusted neighbours and friends may be able to help you by collecting yourpost, opening and closing curtains and they could park their car in yourdriveway.• Leave important documents and valuable items with other family membersor a bank. Alternatively lock them in a safe.• Do not put your home address on your luggage when you are travelling toyour holiday destination. A work address will suffice if you want to label yourluggage.• If you normally leave valuable bicycles or similar items in your shed, considerputting them in the house.• Check the locks on any gates or sheds and upgrade/replace if necessary. Make sure anything that can be used by a burglar to gain entry to your property i.e. garden tools are safely locked away.• Make sure that you lock all outside doors and windows and set your house alarm if you have one.At Home• Lock and bolt your doors and windows.• If you used a ladder to put up outside decorations remember to put it awayafter, preferably in a locked shed. Remember bins and ladders could be usedto access first floor windows by a potential burglar.• Remember never leave any presents or valuables where they can be seen bya burglar i.e. in view of a window! Consider putting presents under theChristmas tree early on Christmas morning.• Keep out any unwanted visitors ‐ it is always a good idea to have a doorviewer or chain fitted to your front door especially in the holiday seasonwhere you are likely to receive more visitors to your home.• Consider fitting exterior lights with sensors in the garden and front of your house. This will help to deter a burglar as they are more confident whenworking in the dark.• If you are expecting a parcel, make sure someone is there when it isdelivered, or ask a neighbour to take it in. Avoid having it left on the doorstep.• Keep keys, mobile phones, purses, wallets and other valuable items lockedaway out of sight.• Don’t leave your keys in the door at any time.• Never leave keys in view of the windows or doors.• Once you’ve opened all your gifts, don’t leave the boxes on view outside toadvertise your good fortune to criminals.COMMUNITY ALERT: BURGLARS TARGET HOMES AS ELDERLY PENSIONER ROBBED was last modified: December 23rd, 2013 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:Christmas break-insGlengadraidsTHEFTSthieveslast_img read more
