It’s a huge boost for the city in terms of sports tourism and has been one of the stand-out individual elements that have combined into the great Limerick success story over the  past decade or so.“We were delighted to take up on the opportunuty to sponsor the ‘Run for Fun’ because it promotes healthy activity amongst children and that’s something as a healthcare provider that we are very keen to promote. Getting children involved in exercise can introduce them to something that will stay with them for much of their  lives and reduce health risks. It’s also good for their wider wellbeing, their confidence, things that are very important to work on from an early age.”REPRO FREE 09/03/2020 Runners Dylan Barry, aged 7, and Ella Barry aged 5, along with Limerick hurling captain Declan Hannon and Jason Kenny, Hospital Manager, Bon Secours Hospital Limerick at Barringtons.

Bon Secours Hospital Limerick ticks that box. It has a great heritage here in the city given the hospital’s origins here  and they are a healthcare provider operating to the highest standards.“We were delighted to have them as title sponsors of the Sunday event prior to this and delighted that they have stayed with us to sponsor this very important ‘Run for Fun’. It is what it says on the tin. We want to introduce them to healthy activity, to having fun doing it and that’s what the event is all about.“We’ve seen their delight at crossing the finishing line knowing, as they do that, it’s not a competitive event, that everyone is a winner. And we’ve seen the delight of their parents at watching the children getting out there, participating in such a healthy activity and enjoying themselves in the process.”REPRO FREE 09/03/2020 Runners, from left to right, Alan Cleary, aged 12, Sam Gilmore, aged 10, Dylan Gilmore, aged 12, along with Limerick hurlers Will O’Donoghue and Diarmaid Byrnes and manager John Kiely.

We have to encourage our children to be involved first and foremost.“It cannot be about competitiveness for them, it must be about fun when they are this stage of life. I commend John Cleary and his team for pulling this event together and Bon Secours Hospital Limerick at Barringtons for sponsoring it.“They have put their support behind Limerick hurling through their sponsorship of the senior hurling club championship over the past year m and they must be commended again on getting involved in another very positive Initiative with the Run for Fun.”The post Bon Secours to sponsor children’s ‘Run for Fun’ on May Bank Holiday weekend appeared first on Sporting Limerick.

Governors Urge House to Pass Additional $1 Billion for LIHEAP Funding

first_imgGovernor Douglas and Coalition of Northeastern Governors Urge House to Pass Additional $1 Billion for LIHEAP FundingWaterbury, VT-The Coalition of Northeastern Governors (CONEG) yesterday (May 29, 2008) urged House leaders to support an additional $1 billion for the Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP), as originally proposed by the Senate, in the FY2008 supplemental appropriations bill.CONEG, which is chaired by Governor Jim Douglas, is requesting that the House support allocating these funds equally between the regular LIHEAP block grant and emergency contingency programs, and that such funds are released in a timely manner to address the needs of the most vulnerable low-income households in the upcoming cooling and the heating seasons.”Thanks to financial commitments made by Governor Douglas and the Vermont legislature, our state provides the most generous LIHEAP benefit in the country, averaging approximately $1169 per household. However, we absolutely need the continued support of our federal partners to ensure this program is able to provide relief to the nation’s vulnerable, low-income households faced with dramatically increasing home energy bills,” said Cynthia D. LaWare, Secretary of the Agency of Human Services.”Approximately 23,000 households in Vermont receive home heating assistance through LIHEAP. This additional funding is vital to supporting our efforts to ensure all eligible Vermonters receive the significant benefit we have been able to provide,” added Pam Dalley, Fuel Assistance Program Chief at the Department for Children and Families.LIHEAP funding is targeted to low-income households that are especially hard hit by high home energy costs. The demand for this highly effective program continues to increase, but the steady rise in prices for home heating fuels has lessened the purchasing power of the LIHEAP dollar. As a result, the average LIHEAP benefit nationwide has decreased since 2006.last_img read more

Mourinho’s Move to Man Utd Stalled by Image Rights

first_imgDespite the hold up, Mourinho’s announcement is expected imminently, although these delays could potentially carry into Euro 2016, and affect Mourinho’s transfer dealings.Van Gaal’s exit was formally announced earlier this week, confirming what many believed to be a long-held formality. The Dutchman was sacked despite winning the FA Cup last weekend, as United beat Crystal Palace after extra time.Assistant manager Ryan Giggs is reportedly set to exit the club, ending his long affiliation with United, amid reports that he is unsatisfied that he was not offered the manager’s role himself.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram ​ Jose Mourinho’s move to Manchester United is being held up due to complications over image rights, according to top sports lawyer Jake Cohen.Cohen announced on his Twitter feed yesterday morning that Mourinho’s entrance at Old Trafford as Louis Van Gaal’s replacement may not be as smooth as some United fans would hope – even though the issues aren’t believed to be serious enough to scupper the deal completely.He revealed that a delay has occurred due to the fact that former club Chelsea still own the trademark for the Portuguese boss’ real name, adding that his image rights are worth millions and that he was ill-advised during his time in London.last_img read more

Men’s basketball: No. 9 Wisconsin suffers first loss to No. 22 Creighton

first_imgNo Big Ten team has come into Creighton’s home court and escaped with a victory since 1978, and that streak stood Tuesday night as the No. 9 Badgers fell 79-67.First halfCreighton came out the gates and hit Wisconsin in the mouth before the reeling Badgers could find their feet. Less than two minutes from tipoff, the Badgers found themselves in an 8-0 hole after Creighton nailed back-to-back 3-pointers.Wisconsin senior point guard Bronson Koenig finally answered with a 3-pointer to put the Badgers on the board and slow down the Creighton tempo that had ignited a deafening Bluejay crowd.UW managed to tie the game at 11 behind a quick rally from Badger senior forward Nigel Hayes. Hayes hit his first three attempts from the floor, including back-to-back threes of his own to put the Badgers right back into the thick of it.Men’s basketball: No. 9 Badgers open 2016-17 with a complete win over Central ArkansasThe No. 9 University of Wisconsin men’s basketball team began their 2016-17 campaign Friday night at the Kohl Center, taking Read…The Bluejays would go pound-for-pound with Wisconsin through the 10-minute mark in the first half, keeping things close at 20-20. Creighton had a chance to get the crowd on their feet on a breakaway opportunity for a slam dunk, but an indecisive Marcus Foster couldn’t finish at the rim with a wide open look.Badger freshman guard D’Mitrik Trice gave Wisconsin a spark immediately off the bench when he cashed a 3-pointer to give his team the three-point edge with around eight minutes before the half.Hayes would follow suit on the next possession with another basket from behind the arc, which would count as the Badgers’ eighth 3-pointer of the first half. For those who are familiar with Wisconsin basketball’s traditional style of play, living by the deep ball is almost taboo for the Badgers.With five minutes left before the first half, Wisconsin had taken 17 total attempts with 13 of those being threes. While UW had made a remarkably high eight of these 13 attempts, that kind of offensive imbalance simply isn’t sustainable, and the Badgers would learn this the hard way.Creighton rallied from its biggest deficit of the game ­— eight points — to pass the Badgers 33-30 at halftime thanks to a momentous dunk by junior guard Foster on a failed defensive assignment by Hayes beneath the rim.Since their red-hot start with 8-13 from downtown, the Badgers closed the first half with 12 consecutive misses from three. The shooting drought rendered Wisconsin scoreless through the final four minutes and 42 seconds of first half. Meanwhile, Creighton built a 13-2 run over the last seven minutes before the whistle.Second halfThe second half was much of the same for both teams as Wisconsin and Creighton traded blows until nine minutes remaining. The one exception: Hayes’ offensive boost for the Badgers was contained, with his first bucket coming almost halfway through the second half.Wisconsin sophomore forward Ethan Happ was M.I.A. for the Badgers down low, largely in part to being called for two travels on offense in the second half and three on the night.Men’s basketball: Three impressive high school seniors sign letters of intent for 2017-18The Wisconsin men’s basketball team notched one of their most balanced recruiting classes in program history with high school seniors Read…The turning point in the game happened with seven minutes remaining, when Creighton snagged three consecutive offensive rebounds before kicking it out to the corner for an uncontested three ball. Only seconds later, Creighton’s Thomas picked Koenig’s pocket before converting on an and-one basket on the other end.On the next possession, it was Thomas again who all but sealed the Badgers’ fate after burying a contested three ball to give the Bluejays an 11-point advantage with five minutes and some change on the clock.The Badgers gave it their best shot to respond, but the deficit proved too much as Wisconsin’s deep ball simply wasn’t falling in the final two minutes. The Badgers finished 11 for 39 total from three-point range, with their leading scorer (Koenig) going 3 for 13 from beyond the arc.Wisconsin looks to rebound at home Thursday night against Chicago State University at 7 p.m. in the Kohl Center.last_img read more
