A night out for two brothers and a cousin turned into a traumatic experience after they were beaten and robbed in the wee hours of Saturday in the vicinity of Nandy Park, East Bank Demerara.Kishan Rameshwar, his brother, Vickram, and his cousin, Trisha Persaud, of Ruimzight, West Coast Demerara, were making their way to the Demerara Harbour Bridge, where someone was waiting for them to go home, when they were attacked by at least 10 young men.The men, who were all armed with knives, relieved the trio of their mobile phones, bank cards, wallets and other personal items. They were also relieved of some $130,000.Speaking with Guyana Times, a traumatised Kishan related that they had just passed the Ramada Princess Hotel when they were confronted by the group of young men who all appeared to be teenagers.“They rushed up and attacked us along with two other persons who were also walking…all of them were equipped with knives,” the young man related.He said that while they were held at knifepoint, their accomplices raided their pockets and took out their valuables. He said that he put up some resistance and was flung onto the roadway.According to Kishan Rameshwar, he was disappointed that persons who were witnessing the incident did not offer any assistance but rather just stood there and watched.He said that the robbers escaped with his iPhone XS Max, car keys, and wallet containing ID card, bank card, driver’s license and a sum of cash.His brother was relieved of cash, cell phone while his cousin was robbed of her bag containing her phone, money and documents. The other two individuals were robbed of their bags and other belongings.The matter was reported to the police and an investigation was launched. Kishan Rameshwar sustained injuries about his body and had to seek medical attention.The police are yet to make an arrest.
They also say a very steep and slippery driveway is causing difficulties with getting fire equipment to the house. We will update when we learn more. If you have any information or photos of this fire, please email firstname.lastname@example.org .- Advertisement –
0Shares0000Patrice Evra left Marseille in disgrace after assaulting a fan before a Europa League game in Portugal in November © AFP/FileLONDON, United Kingdom, Feb 7 – West Ham signed former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra on a free transfer on Wednesday, with the Frenchman set to link up again with former boss David Moyes.Evra has won multiple league titles and the Champions League in an illustrious career but his spell at Marseille ended abruptly in November after he launched a kung-fu kick at a supporter. Evra, who joins the Hammers on a contract until the end of June, worked with Hammers manager Moyes during his time at Old Trafford and is looking forward to linking up with his old boss.“Im really happy to be a Hammer, to be back in the Premier League and I love this game,” said the left-back.“When you have to make a deal and money is not the issue, the deal could be done in five minutes,” added the Evra in a statement on the club’s website. “The main thing was for me to join West Ham and to help my teammates to win as many games as we can.“It was the fastest thing I have done in my life, because both parties wanted to work together, so it was very easy to make an agreement.”West Ham are 12th in the Premier League with 12 matches to play, but are only three points above the teams in 18th and 19th, two of the three relegation places.Evra’s departure from France came after he lashed out in response to a group of supporters who had come to the pitchside to berate him for what they considered sub-par displays.The 36-year-old, capped 81 times by France, was hit with a season-long ban that only applies to UEFA club competitions.Alex Ferguson took the Senegal-born player to Manchester United from Monaco in January 2006, and won five Premier League titles and the Champions League.After spending his final season at Old Trafford working under Moyes, the defender moved to Italian champions Juventus in 2014 and enjoyed more domestic success before moving back to France in January 2017.Evra’s career has been dogged by controversy, not all of his making. At the 2010 World Cup in South Africa he led a revolt of the French players against coach Raymond Domenech.A year later, while playing for United, Evra was the target of a racist insult from then Liverpool striker Luis Suarez. The Uruguayan was banned for eight matches and fined over the incident.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)

URBAN DRINKS: Found myself a Lincoln Lunch at the newly opened Urban Eats on Magnolia Boulevard in Burbank, a few blocks down from the renowned Cuban bakery Porto’s.

I picked corn, mushrooms and red onions with cilantro lime dressing, which was tangy but didn’t zap my taste buds. It looked big when it came, but two hours later I wished I had also ordered a side of focaccia bread for $1.50. But the salad is not the best deal at Urban Eats. All draft beers are $2 (normally $4.25) in October. They have Anchor Steam, Carlsberg Pilsner, Pyramid Hefeweizen and Urban Eats Honey Blonde on tap. Visit Porto’s at 3501 W. Magnolia Blvd., Burbank.

A mother of 11, who received her sixth theft conviction in Buncrana Court, was given a two month suspended jail sentence.Kathleen McDonagh, 63, of the Big Isle, Manorcunningham, was charged with stealing a Triton T90 Power Shower worth €250 from Inishowen Co-Op at the Cockhill Road in Buncrana, on November 28, 2015. Buncrana District Court heard that Ms. McDonagh repaid the compensation to the Inishowen Co-Op. She pleaded guilty to the offence last Thursday.The court heard that charges against two juveniles, who were charged alongside Ms. McDonagh, were withdrawn by the Gardai on the basis of Ms. McDonagh’s guilty plea.Garda Inspector David Murphy told the court that Garda McHugh was called to Inishowen Co-Op on November 28, 2015, after it was alleged that items were stolen from their premises at the Cockhill Road.He said while there he met with the store manager, Sam Ramsey, who had viewed CCTV of an older female, who was accompanied by two younger females, removing a Triton power shower from the store.Insp. Murphy said the CCTV showed Ms. McDonagh pointing towards the shower and holding open the door, while the two younger ladies removed it from the store.He said it was clear that it was a ‘joint enterprise’ between Ms. McDonagh and the two juveniles.Insp. Murphy said Gda. McHugh recognised Ms. McDonagh from the CCTV footage and he searched her home at the Big Isle in Manorcunningham after receiving a search warrant. However, he did not locate the shower at the Big Isle.Kathleen McDonagh was arrested. However Insp. Murphy said she was not co-operative during interview and answered ‘no comment’ when questions were put to her by Gda. McHugh.Insp. Murphy said the power shower was never recovered, however McDonagh repaid the compensation to the Inishowen Co-Op.He said McDonagh had five previous convictions for theft, damaging property and had been given the probation act for cruelty to animals.Defence solicitor Frank Dorrian said Ms. McDonagh and her family were familiar to the court. He said Ms. McDonagh, a mother of 11 children, had seen hardship in her life, adding that her domestic situation was ‘chaotic’.“Her family has lived in the compound in the Big Isle for twenty years, her domestic situation is chaotic but she is the voice of reason among these people most of the time,” Mr. Dorrian said.“She has great remorse and regret for what happened.”Judge Paul Kelly said McDonagh had five previous convictions for theft dating back to the late 1990s.“She is well aware of the impact these convictions would have on her,” Judge Kelly added, before sentencing her to two months jail, suspended for 12 months, on the basis that she is not convicted on any other offences under the theft and fraud offences act.”Mum of 11 gets suspended jail sentence for sixth theft conviction was last modified: January 16th, 2018 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:courtdonegalKathleen McDonagh

Kroos forms part of a deadly midfield at Real Madrid 2 Jose Mourinho wants to reinforce his engine room with the signing Toni Kroos.Manchester United‘s manager sees the Real Madrid ace as the man to bring out the best in Paul Pogba and the duo could form a dream partnership in midfield. Kroos and Germany left the World Cup at the group stage Mourinho has already strengthened the centre of the park by adding Fred to his squad in addition to full-back Diogo Dalot.Marouane Fellaini, meanwhile, is close to signing a new deal at the club According to Spanish publication AS, Kroos’ name came up a number of times in talks between Mourinho and the club’s chief executive, Ed Woodward, about planning for the new season.United are willing to pay a sizeable fee for the 28-year-old but, understandably, the Spanish giants are not keen to sell and there will be some rigorous negotiating required considering his reported release clause is €500m.Kroos is one of the world’s best in his position and has been a key player in Real’s three successive Champions League wins, where he has played alongside Luka Modric and Casemiro.He should be well rested, too given he was part of Germany’s faltering World Cup squad.Kroos was heavily linked with United before deciding to join Real Madrid in 2014. 2
SEAMUS Coleman has been ruled out of Ireland’s clash with Gibraltar on Saturday.The 25-year-old Killybegs man is now also a doubt for next Tuesday’s European championship game against World champions Germany, though Martin O’Neill has named him in his squad.Coleman has missed five games since picking up a head injury in a Europa League triumph over Wolfsburg. It subsequently emerged that a soft tissue problem with his hamstring is the reason for the 25-year-old’s prolonged absence.He missed the trip to Man United today when Everton were unlucky not to get a draw.“Seamus Coleman had concussion against Wolfsburg but then he suffered a little bit of a soft tissue problem. I don’t think it will be too long (before he is fully fit). The international break should clear those injuries,” said Everton manager Roberto Martinez.Squad: David Forde; Shay Given; Keiren Westwood; Rob Elliot, Richard Keogh; Marc Wilson; Seamus Coleman; John O’Shea; Alex Pearce; Ciaran Clark; Stephen Ward, Hendrick; Whelan; Gibson; McGeady; Walters; Pilkington; McClean; Brady; Quinn; Meyler; Hoolahan, Robbie Keane; Shane Long; Daryl Murphy; Kevin Doyle; Anthony Stokes.

There needs to be more discussion about how the UK government is going to replace EU investment in Northern Ireland post-Brexit, former taoiseach Bertie Ahern has said.Mr Ahern made the comments as one of the first speakers at the MacGill Summer School in Glenties, last night.He said the debate about a frictionless or hard border with Northern Ireland has taken away from the issue of how EU funding of the region will be replaced. “In other words, how much money will the British government allocate post-2020 to substitute EU-financed programmes that operate in Northern Ireland at this time?“This is a very serious issue indeed and all contracting parties need to sit down and assess how to move these matters forward in a positive and constructive manner.”Mr Ahern observed that many parts of the Northern Irish economy draw on significant support from the EU, particularly agriculture.Farmers in Northern Ireland will receive more than €2.6 billion in direct payments from the EU under the 2014-2020 Common Agricultural Policy. This accounts for 87 per cent of total farm income in Northern Ireland. Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern with local TD Pat The Cope Gallagher as he talks to the media when he attended the MacGill Summer School in Glenties. (North West Newspix)Other areas which receive extensive EU funding include research and development and programmes to address social issues such as unemployment. All this funding will have to be replaced, Mr Ahern said.The EU also provides extensive funding to support the peace process in Northern Ireland, including a €150 million payment under the four-year Peace 4 programme.He said the EU should continue to support the peace process in the North post-Brexit and he could see no reason why this wouldn’t be possible.Mr Ahern welcomed the UK’s White Paper on leaving the EU, particularly the guarantee of a frictionless border. However, he questioned how the UK would be able to participate in some elements of the internal market and not in others while also agreeing trade deals with third countries.“I am not even sure that the European Commission and the European Court of Justice will recognise the right for the UK to strike trade deals with third countries – if the UK itself secures a standalone trade deal to access the marketplace of the European Union.” He also warned that the EU’s Brexit negotiators must work within the parameters set out by existing European treaties. Mr Ahern said he realised negotiators needed to be flexible but “any prospective final EU-UK deal must take place within the existing legal framework of the European Union”.He continued: “And the reason that they cannot go outside this negotiating mandate is because there is absolutely no appetite at all in Europe to amend existing EU treaties.”The MacGill Summer School, which runs for the next five days, is focusing on the topic, The future of Ireland in a New Europe: the Challenges Ahead?Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern is welcomed to Glenties by town native Margaret Rodgers who was celebrating her 99th birthday. (North West Newspix)It was opened on Sunday by the French ambassador to Ireland, Stéphane Crouzat. There was significant criticism of the lack of women speakers at this year’s event. In response, more women were brought in as speakers and a panel discussion on gender representation in Irish public life was added at the last minute.Out of the 79 scheduled speakers, 35 are women.Former Taoiseach Bertie Ahern being presetnied with a caricature of himself from Michael McGrory who has made a chess pieces of central figures from the Peace Process in Northern Ireland.
