Each club will have 17 boxers from their perspective clubs lined up to fight each other on the night.Who will win on the night will be a close affair but one thing is for certain the public will be treated to some mouth watering encounters.Some of the names confirmed for the night include Ciaran Brogan County councillor, Jason Black owner of Voodoo nightclub, Chris Peoples the popular ESB man from Milford, Eamonn O’Boyle manager of St. Eunans and Charlie Mulgrew ex county footballer.The night itself is run by whitecollarboxing.ie from Dublin. Owner of the company Mr. Cathal O’Grady said he is delighted to be back in Letterkenny for the forth year running, “ I travel throughout Ireland organizing white collar boxing events and the event in Letterkenny is certainly up there with the best of them in terms of atmosphere and professionalism. It is certainly a night I look forward too.”Mr Danny Ryan who coaches the boxers said he was delighted to be associated with the event this year again.“The boxers will go through an extensive 7 week training programme and judging from the lineup it certainly going to be a ding dong night.”Boyd Robinson chairperson of the organizing committee said “ Its fantastic to put a new slant on the Lord of the Rings this year. Getting two clubs that need funds for day to day running and development makes fantastic sense in the present economic climate.“Not many towns can bring two sports like rugby and Gaelic together to the one venue for a function and it testament to the wonderful community spirit in Letterkenny that an event such as this can take place.The first 3 years have been sold out and I have no doubt this year will be the same. I am also delighted and would like to thank O’Gorman & Cunningham Solicitors who are our main sponsors for the event for the fourth year running.” The event will take place this year in the Mount Errigal Hotel on the 15th March 2013 and tickets are available for purchase at Charlie Robinson estate agents, Blakes Bar and the Mount Errigal Hotel,CLASH OF THE CODES AS LETTERKENNY PREPARES FOR LORD OF THE RING 4 was last modified: January 24th, 2013 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:LETTERKENNY RUGBY CLUBLord of the Ring 4St Eunanslast_img read more


Grounded Kea Trader Splits in Half


first_imgImage Courtesy: Lomar ShippingThe grounded containership Kea Trader developed a crack and split on the Durand Reef over the weekend, according to New Caledonia’s government.“Four months of continual pounding in sometime storm-force seas and the stress of sitting hard aground a flat rock reef resulted in the m/v Kea Trader fracturing vertically over the weekend,” Kea Trader’s owner Lomar Shipping said.Noticeable vertical buckling in the mid-section of the hull side expanded during violent six-metre waves, causing the vessel to rupture completely into two halves on November 12.The company informed that each section remains in situ, although the break up and heavy seas resulted in two container units falling into the water. They are being monitored, as is the vessel itself, by two tugs that remain on site, along with specialist anti-pollution contractors.Although the heavy fuel oil was earlier pumped out of the 2017-built boxship, which ran aground on the Durand Reef on July 12, authorities reported traces of pollution from residual quantities of hydrocarbons at the site.Ahead of the latest bout of poor weather, all but a skeletal team of nine Ardent workers had been removed from the vessel last Thursday – the fourth such time that crew and salvage personnel were taken off as a precautionary measure. The remaining nine Ardent salvage workers were all airlifted safely off by helicopter.Work to remove vessel’s remaining containers had been on-going in recent weeks, although 108 were still on board of the original 756 units. This effort had been hampered by poor weather on site.“We remain committed to removing the vessel whilst also ensuring that the marine environment is protected and will be working with our partners to ensure this is realised,” Lomar Shipping spokesperson said.The owner earlier said that the constant, heavy movement of the sea, even in good weather, affected Kea Trader causing further damage, weakening the ship’s hull, and frustrating the re-floating operations on site.A rare ideal weather window and high tide allowed recovery teams to attempt an accelerated re-floating operation in early October. This failed to dislodge the vessel and merely pivoted it by 60 degrees, with the rudder remaining firm in the same position.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more
