There were many complaints, for example: about the city flooding as soon as rain falls, so now we have gone from that era and we are now trying to improve in other areas as well,” the Mayor explained.Although bus operators are frustrated by the actions of the M&CC to displace the Route 42 bus park, they are still awaiting word as to whether they will be placed at a different location or they will have to ply their trade on the “hot plate”.On August 19, the day will start with a church service at the St George’s Cathedral followed by an opening ceremony at Stabroek Market Square.Some of the other activities planned include an arts and crafts exhibition on Main Street, a health fair, cocktail reception and a beachfront party at the Guyana Marriott Hotel.It was noted that most of the funding for these activities will be sponsored by several different companies.

DONEGAL STARS PROUD TO WEAR UNIQUE FARM SAFETY MESSAGE ON COUNTY JERSEY

first_imgDonegal stars Eamon McGee, Michael Murphy and Paddy McBrearty to remind fans of the danger on farms.The stark reminder of the dangers on Donegal farms will be brought home to GAA fans in a unique move at McCumhaill Park in Ballybofey. Although most Donegal fans will have victory over Tyrone in the All-Ireland championship opener on their mind, there will be another message sent out to fans.Because for one game only, the players will wear a jersey which replaces their sponsor’s logo with a ‘Stay Safe on The Farm’ message. The match, at Ballybofey on Sunday week, will be the first time a GAA team wears jerseys with a farm safety message.The initiative has come from Aurivo, which sponsors the team through its Donegal Creameries brand.It will also support FBD’s farm safety campaign by including its “Champions for Change” logo on the back of the jersey. That campaign calls on agri-organisations and farmers to become a champion for change in making farms safer.Last year Donegal has the second highest rate of farm fatalities in the country, after Cork. Of the 30 people killed in incidents on farms last year, four came from Donegal. All were male, and aged over 50. Among those killed were two neighbours in their early 50s were killed last November when a tyre exploded.Donegal GAA chairman Seán Dunnion said it was “a fantastic opportunity to promote safety in the farming community in our county” and the GAA players were very happy to deliver the farm safety message.Aurivo chief executive Aaron Forde said one death on a farm was one too many.“It is our job as a large dairy co-operative to ensure that we raise the awareness of the importance of farm safety amongst our milk suppliers because 58 per cent of fatal farm accidents happen on dairy farms,” he said.“We are confident that the strong farm safety messages on the Donegal GAA jersey will help to highlight the importance of farm safety across the county to those watching the game in the stadium and at home.”DONEGAL STARS PROUD TO WEAR UNIQUE FARM SAFETY MESSAGE ON COUNTY JERSEY was last modified: May 8th, 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) Tags:donegalfarm safetyjerseyMichael MurphyTyronelast_img read more
