The Webster and Cross head knocks vs Wales

first_imgMonday Feb 9, 2009 The Webster and Cross head knocks vs Wales Scotlands wing Simon Webster and prop forward Geoff Cross both knocked themselves out dramatically against Wales on the weekend. Webster while making a big hit, and Cross in an attempt to challenge for a high ball.Both players are now serious concerns for coach Frank Hadden ahead of Saturdays Six Nations match against France. Both suffered bad head injuries from their mistimed tackles against the Welsh at Murrayfield.Webster seemingly got substituted, but was later seen on his knees at the time that Cross himself was being carried off. Webster was sent from the pitch by referee Alain Roland, as was Cross, who received a yellow card while on the stretcher for his reckless challenge on Lee Byrne.Team doctor James Robson said on Monday in a statement that both players had slept soundly on Sunday night.“Simon is fully conscious today as he was last night. He has had a good night’s sleep and will now be subject to the usual protocol after a head injury. Geoff also had a good night’s sleep and will be subject to the same protocol as Simon. He also has strains to both knees.”Players are not allowed to take part if still suffering from the effects of concussion.The protocol involves the player being monitored through various degrees of physical activity before being examined by a neurologist and it would only be at that point that he would get clearance to resume.

Great try for Aled Brew as the Dragons outclass Ulster

first_imgSunday Sep 6, 2009 Great try for Aled Brew as the Dragons outclass Ulster The Magners League kicked off this weekend, and earlier today we saw Welsh side Newport Gwent Dragons get their season off to a great start with a 23-6 win over a disappointing Ulster side at Rodney Parade.The Dragons scored three tries with Aled Brew, Richard Fussell and Ashley Smith all crossing the line, with Jason Tovey kicking a solitary conversion, and James Arlidge slotting two penalties.Ian Humphreys replied for Ulster with all they could manage, two penalties.After a slow start, the game livened up with a great try, finished off by Brew, but made with a superb backline move as Fussell flew in off his wing before giving it to Tom Riley, who then offloaded to his big winger.Interestingly, there was controversy in the scrum department as Italian referee Carlo Damasco sent off both Dragons loose-head pro Ali McKenzie, and Ulster tight-head BJ Botha following the front rows going down repeatedly.It was an easy win in the end for the Dragons, which means that they now top the table after round 1 of the competition.

Headstones destroyed in cemetery rampage

first_imgNewsLocal NewsHeadstones destroyed in cemetery rampageBy admin – July 18, 2012 749 Email Facebook WhatsApp Advertisement Previous articleFree facial at Therapie ClinicNext articleRising water levels cause concern admincenter_img Linkedin Graves located to right of old church buildingTHE interference and destruction of some 37 graves in Mount St Lawrence Cemetery in a night time raid, is a new low for the city, Mayor Gerry McLoughlin said. “The cemetery is a people’s space and a reverential place and this kind of activity is mindless and crosses certain boundaries that should never be crossed.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “We thought we were getting the better of this, and how anyone could deliberately carry out this kind of destruction, beggars belief,” he told the Limerick Post.Commenting on the shock discovery of the vandalised graves by staff on Sunday morning, Flan Haskett, superintendent of cemeteries, said the graves are located in an area of the cemetery to the right of the old church building.“Some of the headstones that had been interfered with, were smashed when they fell to the ground and others had toppled over on to the ground.“It’s a long time since we have had vandalism of this severity carried out in Mount St Lawrence – the last time we had graves interfered with was back in the early 80s – it is very disturbing for our staff, for the families involved and for everyone,” said Mr Haskett, who confirmed that there are CCTV cameras operating on the Ballysimon Road and Mulgrave Street.Paul Foley, senior executive in the city council’s Environment Department, told the Limerick Post that they believe one of the cameras may have picked up helpful footage.“We will probably be discussing the issue of CCTV inside the cemetery with the city councillors when the meetings resume in September”.Confirming that a pedestrian gate is permanently left open, Mr Foley said this was agreed on to avoid the risk of anyone being locked into the cemetery at night“it is important to stress that Mount St Lawrence is a safe cemetery to visit – this disturbing incident occurred during the night”.The decision to provide 24-hour access to the cemetery was taken in response to the wishes of the public, Mr Haskett added:“There are quite a number of people who like to visit the cemetery in the twilight hours and also, down through the years we had some instances with people being locked in, so the decision was taken to leave a pedestrian entrance open on a 24 hour basis”.Mr Foley said an estimated cost of repair to the damaged graves is in the region of €50,000+. Joe Lynch spokesperson for Republican Sinn Fein, says that dealing with such offences in the local District Court is a “waste of time.“This type of mindless vandalism is an insult to the city and indeed, to the memory of the dead. “A District Court can only impose limited sanctions but if €50,000 damage was done to a business premises then the case would go to the Circuit Court where stiffer penalties can be applied by a judge. “This latest damage by these vandals has shocked all right thinking people and it is time that those responsible paid the price of their anti-social actions – such cases should be sent forward to the Circuit Court”.

UL street party students threatened with expulsion

first_imgOne of the photos shared online showing students gathered at College Court in Castletroy on Monday evening.UNIVERSITY of Limerick students involved in Tuesday evening’s chaotic street party, which is now the subject of a Garda investigation, have been warned that they are facing the possibility of expulsion for breaching public health guidelines.UL management were due to meet on Wednesday to discuss the situation which saw three men in their 20s arrested for alleged drugs and public order offences and 30 fixed notice penalties issued by Gardaí after a student street party in the College Court area of Castletroy.In a statement issued on Wednesday morning, UL  President Professor Kerstin Mey said it was clear there was a small minority of the university’s 16,500 students who live in off campus estates who are consistently ignoring government and institutional guidelines.”Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “Students found to have broken the UL Code of Conduct will face the full rigour of our disciplinary process including temporary suspension and possible expulsion,” she added.A Limerick nurse, who is working on the front line in the battle against Covid-19, has described University of Limerick student house parties as “out of control”.The nurse, who lives in the general vicinity of UL, called for round-the-clock Garda patrols as well as the installation of CCTV cameras following Tuesday’s chaotic scenes, in which flares and fireworks exploded near cars, houses, and groups of student revellers.“It’s shocking now, they have broken glass in houses, there was a fire in a house, there are holes in the walls of houses, basically the houses are being thrashed,” said the nurse, who did not want to be identified.“A Garda patrol needs to be permanently based around the area. There are a few Gardaí who come and go and they have to go into these house parties that could potentially have Covid-19, and then go home to their families.“The students are partying up on roofs, and somebody is going to fall off one of those roofs. There is a huge drink and drugs problem in the area,” the nurse added.Meanwhile, a Castletroy landlord described the recent partying at College Court, near UL, as a “super-spreader” Covid event.The landlord said that they, along with others renting out houses to students in the vicinity of UL, were afraid to approach the properties during similar periods of unrest.“Some of the residents are very frightened and it’s getting progressively worse.”He claimed students danced on roofs, destroyed properties, urinated on the street and took drink and drugs at a time when the country is suffering the economic and health devastation of Covid-19.“Will someone have to get hurt or fall off a roof for this madness to stop?” he asked.“They are even calling Careysfort Avenue ‘The Gaza Strip’, an indication of the volatile and lawless zone it has become.”The landlord praised Gardaí for doing “a reasonable job when they have been called” but he said, “a lot more needs to be done to return this area to calm”.He called for the Garda Divisional Drug Unit to patrol the area as a deterrent and claimed students had been intimidating locals.A Garda source described Tuesday night’s scenes in Castletroy as “a shit show”.UL student Tadgh O’Toole tweeted his anger at what happened: “I’m a University of Limerick student myself, sitting at home online now since this time last year praying to get back down to college at some stage before I finish college and then ye see that shit tonight in College Court. Will ye just go home tf**k yiz selfish pr***ks #limerick.”Limerick teacher Sarah O’Connor tweeted: “Absolutely gutted having seen those videos from College Court in Limerick tonight. All of the sacrifices we have all made absolutely thrown in our faces. Disgraceful.” Twitter NewsUL street party students threatened with expulsionBy David Raleigh – March 5, 2021 2311 Facebook Previous articleAnn & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 45 | Is Twitter a pit of poisonous toxicity?Next articleLimerick hit by seven Bank of Ireland branch closures David Raleigh Linkedincenter_img Email Print Advertisement WhatsApplast_img read more

GrassRoots Festival’s vision for future grows

first_img “GrassRoots has changed significantly in the last 10 years,” Jonah said. “The scope of the musical offerings, the reach of GrassRoots, the increased participation. We have more than 50,000 come to Trumansburg, 100,000 with North Carolina and Virginia Key. We acquired the property with an expansion of scope.”Image courtesy of GrassRoots.This summer, GrassRoots rolled out its first concept plan for the site.Working with Whitham Planning and Design, the organization sought to make the site a true mixed-use property. There are campsites, cabins, a large solar farm to offset the electricity use of big production and help make the project carbon neutral, housing clustered together into a walkable neighborhood, a hotel, a longhouse for the Cayuga Nations, recreational fields, protected natural areas, and the centerpiece of it all, an indoor and outdoor performing arts center and cultural museum.“It would be the keystone of the whole project. The idea is to have a multi-use building that we’d like to construct, a performance hall that could hold 1,000 people with a connected outdoor summer-use lawn area that would hold 2,000-3,000 people, so the building would have an indoor stage and at the very back, a porch-like area as an outdoor amphitheater-type stage. But not with the roof like Canandaigua or SPAC (Saratoga Performing Arts Center), an indoor space with a fully outdoor covered stage. It would also be offered to the community for activities, weddings, educational functions, a general performing arts space. We would like to spark some interest in hands-on education in the arts and have people learn the skills to put on shows like sound and lighting. When you do events, you branch out into quite a few areas,” said Puryear.Plans require a lot of time and effort to turn into reality. As Jonah explained, they feel there are four major challenges, but they feel that the benefits brought by GrassRoots and the potential benefits the projects will bring to the area are worth the effort.“One of the issues is to come out with a plan that complies with existing zoning in the area. If you look at the plan, we have come up with a design that doesn’t require adjustments to zoning. The second issue is making sure we are environmentally conscious, so most of the development is away from the (Smith) Woods. Third, we wanted something realistic and actionable, something we’d be able to implement. The fourth is that most places, you have what are called NIMBY folks, that is a challenge we may face.”“When GrassRoots was founded more than 30 years ago, Jordon and Jeb probably didn’t think they’d have this amount of economic impact on the region, but the move from the State Theatre was a big inflection point, which led to an expansion of GrassRoots, and GrassRoots has contributed tremendously economically, and positively to Trumansburg and the rest of the county. If this plan comes into existence, then Trumansburg and Tompkins County will benefit enormously and it will lead to the expansion of the village, we’ll have the requisite municipal services. We would also be creating jobs, and more opportunities for independent actors to come and showcase their wonderful talent in the area. It’s good for quality of life, the economy, the environment, and the mental well-being of folks in Tompkins County and the Southern Tier region.”To expand further on that part about “expansion of the village,” well, that might have been the biggest surprise during the interview. The village boundary would be extended to the southeast to include the property and the 32-acre Smith Woods between it and the current boundary. The woods are owned by the Cayuga Nature Center and will remain undeveloped. As Jonah explained, “(w)e’re working on being annexed into the village, the first time (the village has expanded) in a century. That site and Smith Woods, we’re working with Mayor Rordan [Hart] on it.”PA Line at GrassRoots, July 2019. (Photo by Sam Fuller/The Ithaca Voice)The goals are lofty, and the time frame for development is quick if still generous. Puryear said he’d like to see the major components completed in five years, and all of the plan fully realized by the end of the next decade.“It feels like the kind of plan that’s moving along and has some traction. It’s been great working with Scott Whitham, this plan feels like it has a life of its own and we hope to do what we can to get it going,” Puryear said.Jonah was just as optimistic.“We’re working to bring a full realization of the vision the founders had in mind in both of musical offerings and a significant economic impact to the region,” said Jonah. “I expect GrassRoots will be the preeminent music destination for New York State, and hopefully be able to be talked about like big music festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo. We have the personnel, the vision and the dedication, and the music offerings to make it possible. It will be an incubator for creativity and to showcase talent, we have enormous talent in this area and allows it to blossom.”Correction: An earlier version of this article misspelled Jordan Puryear’s first name.Featured image: Aerial image of the 2019 Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance in Trumansburg, NY. (Jacob Mroczek/The Ithaca Voice) Your Arts & Culture news is made possible with support from: Tagged: GrassRoots, grassroots festival, ibe jonah, jordon puryear, music festivals, tompkins county, trumansburg TRUMANSBURG, N.Y. — In an area that loves its festivals, the Finger Lakes GrassRoots Festival of Music and Dance is one of the most iconic. For nearly three decades, the celebration has featured a wide array of musical acts and drawn tens of thousands of people to Trumansburg every summer. It’s become such a staple and success, it’s hard to imagine it any different.But as the scope of the music has expanded and attendance has consistently risen, come challenges and opportunities. This has given the organization a reason to assess its state of affairs and make an expansion plan that will allow it to grow in the decades ahead. Organizers have some big plans that include new infrastructure and plenty of space to stretch out.Jordan Puryear and Ibe Jonah are in charge of putting that plan together. Puryear continues to be involved in the festival as his family has since its inception. He was instrumental in launching the other two GrassRoots sites and handles a lot of the logistics for the Trumansburg festival – site building, site design, tear-down of temporary structures, overseeing music production and production values like sound and lighting equipment. Jonah, in contrast, is the passionate newcomer, starting in the role of Director of Development in April.The two have been working on behalf of the organization to craft a plan for the future. What will GrassRoots look like 10 years from now? To help answer that, they have turned to their other festivals for inspiration.(Photo by Sam Fuller/The Ithaca Voice)“We’re in a nationalization of the GrassRoots Plan. Shakori Hill just finished its 16th year successfully,” Puryear said. “In North Carolina, we have a twice a year festival, May and October, and we founded the Shakori Hill Community Art Center on a piece of property that we ended up co-buying with the organization up here. We purchased a major 72-acre piece of property, put in roads, infrastructure, a permanent stage, various enhancements. How we ended up purchasing that property was through a community-owned mortgage of 25 festival fans, mostly North Carolinians, putting together the money to buy the farm, $625,000 was raised there. It’s how we hope to facilitate this build out here, across the way, the 90 acres behind the Shur-Save on Route 96.”To be exact, it’s 91.3 acres. GrassRoots bought it through a limited-liability company for $560,000 in October 2017. That might come as a surprise to those used to tuning in over at the Trumansburg Fairgrounds across the road, but according to Puryear, plans for the Falls Road property have been in motion ever since.“There wasn’t much discussion before we purchased it, we didn’t want to put the cart before the horse. As soon as that deal came through for GrassRoots, we started to work on what’s the best use for that property. Being a non-profit, we’re more stewards of community property than a commercial entity driven by the money we can make out of it. Our process was to really figure out what’s the best way that property can fit in with the mission of GrassRoots and supporting arts and the community.”Moontee Sinquah.

GrassRoots built the permanent stage there more than 10 years ago. It’s been an inspiration for the community and GrassRoots to have that facility, it’s a beautiful piece of property and maintained for 150 years as a community gathering space … Being right across the street, it will allow the GrassRoots festival to expand somewhat. We’ve maxed out at the capacity of that site and I think at a certain point you have big enough crowds that at a certain point it becomes a negative, a barrier. We’ve had well over 600 campsites at the ‘across the way’ site, this will double the campsite size and give a chance to spread out, let people set up fancy camps and express themselves,” said Puryear.GrassRoots has come a long way since its start back in 1990, when it began as a benefit show at the State Theatre to raise money for the fight against AIDS. The festival organization began the following year, led by the Puryear family – matriarch Leslie, and her sons Jeb and Jordon, members of the beloved local band Donna the Buffalo (Jordon played bass for a while, while Jeb still plays with the band on the electric guitar and provides some of the vocals).Today, the Trumansburg Grassroots festival draws tens of thousands of visitors each year. Similar GrassRoots events in Virginia Key, Florida (in February) and Shakori Hills, North Carolina (in May and October) serve as premier destinations in their own right – there’s now practically a GrassRoots music and art festival for every season.
