Mayor Kiely and O’Dea opt out of newspaper promotion

first_imgINVITATIONS to attend the launch of a free advertising campaign designed to aid local business people by the Limerick Independent newspaper, have been declined by Mayor Kevin Kiely  and Deputy Willie O’Dea.Deputy O’Dea told the Limerick Post that he had declined the invitation to attend the launch following a recent High Court winding up-order.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Mayor Kiely said he had initially agreed to attend, but on reflection,  had a change of mind.“As Mayor, I would not allow myself to be in a situation where someone has wound up a company and has substantial debts”.Limerick Independent Newspapers Ltd was wound up last month owing €93,000 to its printers, and €265,000 to  Revenue. This week, the managing director of the Limerick Independent newspaper was ordered by the High Court to submit a statement of affairs for the company previously in charge of the newspaper, which was placed in compulsory liquidation last month.Declan and Susan Moylan, directors of Limerick Independent Newspapers Ltd, which was placed in liquidation, were obliged to submit a statement of affairs within 21 days of the last court hearing in early May.A court official told Ms Justice Finlay Geoghegan this Monday that there is “very little money” placed in liquidation to date, and a bond was granted to cover the liquidator’s costs, following the submission of an affidavit by liquidator Mr Brian McEnery.A recently established company is now running  the freesheet paper. On April 8, Declan and Susan Moylan, Clonmacken, Ennis Road, registered a new company, Lenmoy Media Publications “to carry on the business of the production, publication, editing and distribution of a free sheet newspaper”.However, they have stepped down as directors of Lenmoy, with Declan Moylan’s sister and brother, Barbara and Rory Moylan, appointed at the end of May.The case will again come before the Examiner’s Court on Monday, July 19.

The decline in Australian air travel demand

first_imgFlying around the continent Down Under spiked in 2012, as a result of a so-called capacity war between Qantas and challenger Virgin Australia when the latter bought a fleet of Airbus A330s and broke into the business class market for the first time since its arrival in 2001 as budget airline Virgin Blue.But, between 2012 and 2014, both airlines sustained heavy domestic losses as a result of their war. And, because it was primarily a battle for supremacy in business class, the bargains on offer were mainly in the expensive seats at the front of the plane. Budget flyers noticed little difference in the best discounts on offer.With the national economy still struggling, that means 2013’s 60 million passenger trips around Australia was a high water mark that hasn’t been bettered.The latest figures show that, in the year to the end of March 2016, there were just 58.04 million passenger trips around Australia, compared with 60.12 million in the 2015 calendar year, though March ’16’s 5.2 million monthly passengers was up 2.7 per cent on the same month last year.It wasn’t all gloom, especially for holiday-makers, according to the figures from the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE). The greatest percentage increase in passenger numbers, compared to March 2015, was on the Hamilton Island-Sydney route (up 30.3 per cent). There were large increases on a number of other routes, including Cairns-Melbourne (24.3 per cent), Hobart-Sydney (22.8 per cent), Sunshine Coast-Sydney (17.7 per cent) and Melbourne-Sunshine Coast (17.2 per cent).However, the air travel recession was really biting in the mining areas of Queensland and Western Australia, as dozens of weekly fly-in-fly-out services between regional mines and Perth and Brisbane are cancelled.Routes with the biggest traffic decreases in March 2016 compared with March 2015 included Brisbane-Moranbah (down 21.3 per cent), Karratha-Perth (17.6 per cent), Perth-Port Hedland (17.3 per cent) and Brisbane-Gladstone (17 per cent). The airport worst affected by the mining crash was Roma’s, down 46.8 per cent on March 2015.But the star of the bush was Toowoomba’s new privately built, owned and operated airport just out of town to the north-west called Wellcamp. Of Australia’s top 50 regional airports, the Wagner family’s operation had the strongest growth in March (up 53.9 per cent on March 2015), with a raft of new jet and turboprop services to Melbourne, Sydney, Cairns and elsewhere in regional Queensland.The growth wasn’t possible at Toowoomba’s council-run downtown airport, which has a single 1200-metre runway suitable only for small turboprops. Wellcamp, officially named the “Brisbane West Wellcamp” airport, can take passenger planes and air freighters up to 747 size.In March 2016, the Bureau of Infrastructure, Transport and Regional Economics (BITRE) reports, Sydney remained Australia’s busiest domestic airport with 2.3 million passengers, followed by Melbourne with 2.11 million and Brisbane with 1.43 million.By comparison, there was less than Sydney’s passenger traffic – 1.98 million – at all of Australia’s regional airports in March, 1.6 per cent higher than in March 2015. Fixed-wing charter operators carried 227,000 passengers in March 2016, a decrease of 2.7 per cent on March 2015. BITRE reports more than one-third of all charter passengers in Australia took flights to and from Perth Airport – most of them travelling to regional mining camps.Meanwhile, BITRE’s air fares survey reports business class fares around Australia have recovered nearly 50 per cent from under 65 on its index in 2012 to 95 in May 2016, compared with an index high of 110 before the business class price war began.And the bargains in the best discount category continue to track downwards towards the lowest levels recorded since the index began in 1992, in spite of the airlines’ efforts to curb the discounting.In the past few months, both airline groups have indicated that, after the 2012-2014 bloodbath, they would rather withdraw seating capacity from the market than discount their way into the red again.Tropical holidays in the sun are booming, but that can’t hide a recession in Australian air travel as the country attempts to transition out of a mining boom that has cooled into an economy looking for new directions that defy the business slowdown worldwide.Flying around the continent Down Under spiked in 2012, as a result of a so-called capacity war between Qantas and challenger Virgin Australia when the latter bought a fleet of Airbus A330s and broke into the business class market for the first time since its arrival in 2001 as budget airline Virgin Blue.But, between 2012 and 2014, both airlines sustained heavy domestic losses as a result of their war.

Van Dyk in record Boston Marathon win

first_img20 April 2010After winning the Boston Marathon for a record ninth time on Monday, South African wheelchair racing star Ernst van Dyk now has more victories in the world-famous marathon, first contested in 1897, than anyone in any racing category.Previously Ireland’s Jean Driscoll won the women’s wheelchair event eight times, from 1990 to 1996, and again in 2000.Monday’s victory was one of Van Dyk’s toughest wins yet, with another South African, Krige Schabort, pushing him all the way to the finishing tape.“It was the hardest ever, to have to fight all the way to the end, instead of finishing at a pace that was comfortable,” Van Dyk told Boston.com afterwards. “It was a battle.”Good startVan Dyk started the race well and built up an early lead, but Schabort, a two-time podium finisher in the Olympic wheelchair marathon, wasn’t about to make it easy for him and put the pressure on in ideal conditions.Van Dyk set a blazing early pace, passing through the 10-kilometre check point in only 17 minutes and 56 seconds. Behind him, however, Schabort had good support from the Japanese pair of Kota Hokinoue and Soejima Masazumi and they worked together to haul in Van Dyk.By halfway the trio had caught the eight-time champion and passed him, but one doesn’t win a race eight times without being able to handle the challenges laid down by determined opponents.Heartbreak HillAt Heartbreak Hill, a key point in the race, just after the 30-kilometre-mark, Van Dyk was still in fourth place. Slowly, though, he began to reel in the men in front of him, but the distance to the finish was rapidly diminishing.“I caught back up with Kota (Hokinoue),” he told the Boston Herald, “then I could see Krige in front of me and knew that I had a chance.“I sprinted as hard as I could. Once I caught up to him we knew it would be a sprint to the finish.”Heading towards the finish down Boylston Street, Van Dyk caught and passed Schabort with 400 metres to go, leaving his fellow South African as the runner-up in the race for a seventh time.‘I worked very hard’“I’m 10 years younger than Krige,” Van Dyk told the Boston Herald, “so I have a better sprint than he has. But you still need to time your move correctly. I worked very hard to catch Krige.”After taking victory in 2008, Van Dyk had said he wanted to contest the race at least one more time so that he could become the sole owner of the record for most wins. A year later, reflecting on his record-setting victory, he told Boston.com: “The fact that it’s number nine is a bonus, but I never thought of starting to count the wins in Boston, I just wanted to do my best every time in the race and be in the money and go for the trophy.“Whether it’s number nine, number 8 or number 17, it doesn’t matter to me, but now that it is number nine and I’m the only person in the history of this race to win number nine, I think it’s an honor and I need to appreciate what it is.”Tenth title?With nine victories to his name, surely the temptation for Van Dyk is to go for double figures. It appears he still has plenty left in the tank.In 2008, he won the race in his slowest winning time of one hour, 33 minutes and 29 seconds. His winning time on Monday was considerably better: one hour, 26 minutes, and 53 seconds.Schabort finished four seconds later, which made it by far Van Dyk’s closest win in Boston. Previously the tightest finish in any of his victories had been by a minute and 35 seconds.Van Dyk holds the world record for the marathon, set on the same course in 2004, of one hour 18 minutes and 27 seconds.He has won the Boston Marathon every year since 2001, excepting for 2007, when he finished in third place.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

first_imgMan Utd veteran Mata admits painful watching Liverpool, Man Cityby Freddie Taylor4 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveJuan Mata admits it is painful to see Manchester City and Liverpool above Manchester United.The Red Devils are currently languishing in the bottom half of the Premier League table, whilst their storied rivals are neck and neck at the top for the second consecutive season.”I like to watch matches when I have a day off because I love the game and I can appreciate good football, but if I am watching Liverpool or Man City playing, the rivalry they have with my club means a lot to me,” Mata told Goal. “You can say it doesn’t mean as much to me as it does to a fan, but it can for sure. Michael Owen clearly gave you a different view on this, but the rivalry that means a lot to the fans of my club also means a lot to me.”For example, I have a passion for my first club Real Oviedo. So, I cannot be happy if they play well and the result has gone against them. Also, I cannot look at their rivals and say I am happy if they are playing good football and achieving more.”It is the same now that I am at United. You can see that City and Liverpool are good teams and they play nice football, but I cannot be happy that United are behind them at the moment. Of course not. I understand what it means to the fans to be behind City and Liverpool, and I cannot be happy about this. I prefer to focus on us rather than thinking about our rivals.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Ohio State mens basketball set for homeandhome series with Connecticut

OSU won, 86-48.Lantern file photoThe Ohio State men’s basketball team is scheduled to play a home-and-home series against the University of Connecticut, coach Thad Matta announced Wednesday via a press release.OSU’s matchup with the Huskies is set to begin Dec. 12, 2015 when the Buckeyes are scheduled to travel to Connecticut.

Ohio State unable to get on a roll offensively in loss to

Redshirt-freshman quarterback J.T. Barrett (16) is sacked by Virginia Tech sophomore cornerback Kendall Fuller during a game Sept. 6 at Ohio Stadium. OSU lost, 35-21.Credit: Jon McAllister / Asst. photo editorThe Ohio State football team broke records and multiple streaks Saturday night, many of which were not positives.The Buckeyes dropped their first home opener since 1978, due in part to a lack of offense as they allowed seven sacks, six of which occurred in the fourth quarter.The loss also snapped OSU’s streak of 25 consecutive regular-season wins, which was the longest such streak in the country.Coach Urban Meyer said postgame that he was “very disappointed” with the way his team performed in front of a record crowd of 107,517, in Ohio Stadium.“We had all kind of issues that we have to get a lot better at,” Meyer said. “We also had a lot of dropped passes…we just have to do a better job.”Redshirt-senior offensive lineman Darryl Baldwin said the offense, which was four of 16 on third downs, needs to do a better job to help out the defense.“We just haven’t been able to get on a roll offensively,” Baldwin said. “Defense has been playing well and when we get these opportunities, we haven’t been taking advantage of them. Those three and outs have been killing us.”Not only could the Buckeyes not convert third downs, they could not complete passes. Redshirt-freshman J.T. Barrett completed just nine of his 29 attempts, including three interceptions — the last of which was taken back 63 yards for a score by Virginia Tech junior cornerback Donovan Riley.Despite a less than stellar showing, Meyer said he thought his quarterback did well with what he had.“Gutsy effort,” Meyer said. “Obviously not good enough, but a quarterback is a product of those around him, and we all have to get better.”The Hokie defense lined up in zero coverage — a formation with no deep safeties — for most of the game and crowded the line of scrimmage, daring the Buckeyes to throw the football. It was a tactic co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Tom Herman said the OSU coaching staff had not expected.“They played something we hadn’t prepared for so it took quite a bit of adjusting,” Herman said. “We had to find some ways to get to the speed option game, and we did that during the second half. We got a little momentum back on our side but couldn’t make the plays in the end.”After a year in which the Buckeyes were near the top nationally in yards per game in 2013, when then-junior Braxton Miller and Carlos Hyde each rushed for over 1,000 yards, OSU managed just 108 rushing yards against the Hokies. Barrett, who suffered the seven sacks, led the team with 70 yards on the ground.The next leading rusher for OSU was sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott, who carried the ball just eight times for 32 yards.Baldwin said he was disappointed that OSU could not move the football on the ground.“The run game opens up the entire offense,” Baldwin said. “It really just opens up everything and we just couldn’t get it started.”Although the running game struggled, Herman said the loss cannot be blamed solely on one unit or person.“From myself on down to the players, it was certainly not one position or one thing that you can say, ‘this is the reason,’” he said.Meyer said that the team will regroup and come back ready to go on Sunday.“So anxious to get back to work tomorrow and get a little better,” Meyer said. “We had a good meeting as a team (after the game).”The Buckeyes are set to begin preparations for their next game against Kent State, which is scheduled to kickoff at noon on Sept. 13 at Ohio Stadium. read more
