first_imgTwo young men have appeared in court charged with having petrol bombs intending to use them to do damage in Co Donegal.Before Buncrana District Court was Darren Grant, 21 (pictured right) and Damian Carlin, 18 (pictured below) who were charged with having the devices at Figary, Fahan on July 20th last.A juvenile, who cannot be named, also appeared before the court in relation to connected incidents but had his charges struck out. Grant, of Park Mor, Buncrana and Carlin of Keelogs, Linsfort, Buncrana made no reply when charged under Section of the Criminal Justice Act.Garda Inspector David Murphy said he was seeking a long adjournment to allow the State to investigate all matters.“This is a long and detailed investigation,” he said.However solicitor for Mr Grant, Paudge Dorrian, said his client has suffered because of previous reporting of the case.“An allegation was made in the press that this man was guilty of arson. This is damaging to him and his family. He has no hope of getting a fair trial.“People’s minds in the area have been polluted by wrongful allegations about this young man.“Every newspaper that published allegations of arson have identified my client by implication.“Now the State are seeking a long adjournment for some peculiar reason,” he said.He added that there was now “selective prosecution” taking place.Inspector Murphy said there was nothing peculiar about the case and rejected any claim of “selective prosecution.”He also sought to have a curfew imposed on Mr Grant claiming he would be “concerned about his activities.”However this was rejected by Judge Paul Kelly.Judge Kelly adjourned the case until December 8th but later changed this to September 15th next at Letterkenny District Court.TWO IN BUNCRANA COURT ON PETROL BOMB CHARGES was last modified: September 8th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:buncrana courtlast_img read more

first_imgHe watched the Republic of Ireland for the first time in 1974 at Dalymount Park and Paul Boyle has since gone on to become one of Ireland’s most-capped supporters.By Chris McNulty in CopenhagenIn the 43 years since, Boyle, a native of Meenaneary in south-west Donegal has missed only a handful of Republic of Ireland away games. Picture: Paul Boyle with former Republic of Ireland player Kevin KilbaneHe will be among the 2,305 Irish fans in the away end of the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen tomorrow night for the 2018 World Cup qualifier against Denmark.He’s been at all 23 of Ireland’s games in major tournaments and has seen all the iconic moments in the flesh.From Ray Houghton in Stuttgart, Ronnie Whelan in Hanover, Packie Bonner in Genoa, Houghton again in New Jersey, Alan McLoughlin in Belfast, Shay Given in Tehran, Robbie Keane in Ibaraki to Robbie Brady in Lille, he’s lived the moments. “I don’t know how I started,” he laughs now.“Things just sort of kicked in really. The first two games I saw in Dalymount, we beat Soviet Union 3-0 and Turkey 4-0. Don Givens got all of the seven goals.“Soon after that, I started going to away games. I love the travelling. I have been to every away game since 1974 or ’75 apart from the wee while I was out of action.”That was in June 2009. He was given the Last Rites. Folks at home heard the news; Paul Boyle had lost his battle with bowel cancer.He’d booked to watch Ireland play Bulgaria in Sofia that same week. It is eight years now since he was given an hour to live in a London hospital. There had been complications with his surgery, he contracted septicaemia, his liver, lungs and brain had all ceased functioning.He was six weeks in intensive care and, remarkably, made a full recovery.“I have been at every single qualifier this campaign,” he says proudly.Paul has been living in Cricklewood in London, where he worked as a carpenter, since 1971. He did return for a spell in 1973 and passed out as a member of An Garda Siochana. But he left after four weeks working. The date is still fresh in his mind: April 30, 1974. It was the Sunday afternoon that Finn Harps were beating St Patrick’s Athletic in the FAI Cup final.  Earlier this year, he was back home to support Harps a couple of times and he’s never far from home, holidaying regularly in Kilcar and also avidly following the travails of the Donegal GAA team.He hails originally from Crove and was at school in Meenaneary. He is a cousin of Seamus Coleman’s mother Máire and has watched proudly as the Killybegs man has gone on to become the Irish captain.“I got to know him in the Faroe Islands,” Paul says.“Seamus is the perfect gentleman. I was at home when there was a night for him in the Blue Haven recently and I have met him a couple of times. He is the nicest kid and it’s great to see him doing so well.”Paul Boyle with Seamus ColemanPaul’s son, Scott McBrearty, is a cousin of Donegal footballer Patrick McBrearty, and won a Donegal U21 title with Kilcar.Scott is now based in Reykjavik and Paul isn’t long back from the Icelandic capital – where he had his favourite night watching Ireland; a 4-2 win in 1997 when Roy Keane netted twice.Letterkenny man Malachy Gormley is another who has an equally impressive record of attendance and the two met up again recently in Letterkenny.Paul was none too pleased with a trip to Moscow in 2002. “People were getting robbed left, right and centre – and that was only in dealing with the policemen!”Would he go back to Russia should Ireland qualify for the World Cup?“God save us, I would surely.”From Iceland to Ibaraki: Paul is still on the Boyle following Ireland was last modified: November 14th, 2017 by Chris McNultyShare 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:CopenhagenDENMARKmeenanearyPackie BonnerPaul BoyleRepublic of Irelandseamus colemanShay Givenlast_img read more

first_imgThe sixth of a series of surveys by Financial Executives International (FEI) about Sarbanes-Oxley was recently released. Somewhat surprisingly, the study found that total costs of compliance at large corporations dropped 23% over the past year and 35% when compared to the previous year.200 companies with average revenues of $6.8 billion were included in a poll that tries to measure how they are coping with Section 404 of Sarbanes-Oxley. The survey attributes companies becoming more efficient as the reason for the reduction in costs.Three years into Sarbanes-Oxley many of these large companies have already gone through the pain associated with startup, but now the processes are in place and are slowly being accepted as standard business procedure.While internal costs related to compliance are dropping, the study finds that fees associated with mandatory external audits have not changed.Those companies that were able to centralize their compliance operations saw the greatest savings. The average annual cost of compliance at companies with centralized systems was $1.7 million, compared to nearly $4.0 million for those companies with decentralized operations.Most companies still feel though that the costs far outweigh the benefits of Sarbanes-Oxley. Only 22% of those surveyed felt that Sarbanes-Oxley provided greater value than the costs needed to implement it — although that number climbed a little from only 15% the previous year.On the positive side, 46% said that their financial reports have become more accurate, and 48% felt they were also more reliable. 34% thought that Sarbanes-Oxley helped to prevent or detect fraud.The perception of Sarbanes-Oxley is slowly changing. Perhaps in time it will be viewed more as a competitive advantage for companies rather than as a cost burden.last_img read more
