Linkedin TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick Post Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Email Facebook Twitter A Limerick TD has called for the Defence Forces to assist gardai police the town of Rathkeale over forthcoming Christmas and New Year periods, following a number of alleged incidents in the town over the recent festive holidays.The call, made by Independent TD Richard O’Donoghue, came as gardai began an investigation into a bare knuckle fight which occurred in the town last Monday.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Videos showing a vicious fight in the town centre were shared online this Wednesday.The video shows a large group of men and women jeering and shouting at one another, as two bare-chested males fight one another. An older looking man, who is fully dressed, appears to be covered in blood around his face and neck.Gardai said last week that they had enough resources to deal with a surge of between 1,000 – 2,000 visitors to the town over Christmas.However, Deputy O’Donoghue said: “The gardai in the district go above and beyond what they have to do, but they don’t have the resources for Rathkeale (at Christmas) because they are covering the whole district. The problem is an influx of people coming into Rathkeale destroys everything in the town, and people stop coming in because of the traffic congestion, anti social behaviour, caused by a minority of people that come to Rathkeale.”“They are destroying a perfectly good town and a vibrant business town by people who come in every Christmas.”“The Council every year spends two or three meetings discussing what policing issues are we going to have in place in Rathkeale come Christmas – that’s not right, we shouldn’t have to have a situation where we have to have meetings with the gardai to discuss one town, because of the influx of people coming in from the UK and other places who are destroying a beautiful town.”“We don’t need extra garda resources for Kilmallock or Adare – it’s only for one town and this has to stop.”“Bring in the army to help, yes the army aren’t able to make arrests, but they can be there as a presence. We need to make sure that when that minority come home for Christmas that they behave.”“The army could help with garda checkpoints, they could be on the street to see this for themselves, gather information for the gardai, find out where the anti-social behaviour is… we have fights on the streets in the middle of the day.”“We need to make Rathkeale – at Christmas time – safe again for everyone, to encourage people in and support the businesses all year round.”Deputy O’Donoghue said he was not referring to local families, “that have been there for generations, that have integrated in the community, and have supported businesses in the community”.“I am talking about a minority of people that come and cause it — we don’t have this trouble all year round, we only have it at Christmas time”.“These people are not from Rathkeale, or Ireland, and they come in and try to use Rathkeale as an anti-social party town, which it is not, and we need to stop that.”Rathkeale Community Council said that Rathkeale had one of the lowest crime rates in the Newcastle West Garda District and it has been unfairly targeted.However, a informed local source, who said they did not wish to be identified for fear of reprisals, said those involved in Monday’s melee in the town “behaved like animals”.“They boxed the head off of one another, held up traffic, people were frightened out of their lives, people were inside in cars and they couldn’t get up and down the Main Street, it was like a boxing ring.”“Rathkeale was a jungle again this Christmas, and anyone who says different is sticking their heads in the sand,” they added.A garda spokesman said: “Gardaí responded to reports of an assault in Rathkeale town square on Monday, January 4th 2021. One male, aged in his forties, was conveyed to Limerick Hospital for treatment for his injuries and has since been released and returned home.”They added: “One male has been arrested and charged in relation and is due to appear before Newcastle West District Court on the 8th of January 2021.”A number of house parties and flouting of mask wearing and social distancing alleged to have taken place in Rathkeale over Christmas are also under investigation after videos were shared online.On December 28th, Gardai confirmed they were preparing files for the DPP “following incidents encountered by Gardai in Rathkeale across the Christmas period involving gatherings by large groups at private establishments and on public thoroughfares in the town.”When asked about garda resources in Rathkeale, a spokesman replied: “A local Garda Operation commenced on Tuesday, 24th November, 2020, and remains in place in the Rathkeale area. Sufficient Garda resources are currently in place for the area.”“Any breaches of COVID-19 restrictions will be investigated by Gardaí and a file will be prepared for the Director of Public Prosecutions in each case.”When asked about crime in the town over the festive period, another garda spokesman replied: “The number of burglaries, assaults, and public order incidents in recent weeks are down when compared to other years”.

Press Association It emerged on Tuesday that Swansea were keen to sign the versatile former France Under-21 international, who can operate on either the left side of defence or in attack. Tabanou’s agent Philippe Lamboley said: “The two clubs are in discussions, but I cannot confirm a bid has been made.” But St Etienne president Caiazzo has dismissed talk of Tabanou making a £3million move to south Wales and says the player will be staying put at the Stade Geoffroy-Guichard to help the club’s push for Champions League football. St Etienne currently lie fourth in Ligue 1, four points behind third-placed Paris St Germain. “Tabanou will not leave this winter,” Caiazzo told Eurosport. “Even if we receive a good offer, he will stay at the club for sure.” Swansea, who sold top scorer Wilfried Bony to Manchester City in a deal which could climb to £28million through add-ons, are still looking to strengthen their defence despite the £5m capture of full-back Kyle Naughton from Tottenham last week. Manager Garry Monk wants to provide competition for Neil Taylor as the Wales defender is the only recognised left-back at the club and he has also been linked with a January move for Norwich’s Swedish international Martin Olsson. Swansea have been told St Etienne target Franck Tabanou is going nowhere by the Ligue 1 club’s president Bernard Caiazzo.
Sharapova’s racquet manufacturer Head stood by the Russian after she initially confirmed the positive test on March 8, and the company has now called for an amnesty in meldonium cases.“It is now quite clear that WADA made the decision to ban meldonium based solely upon the alleged prevalence of use among Eastern European and Russian athletes,” said head chief executive and chairman Johan Eliasch.“This highlights a wholly flawed decision-making process by WADA whereby the ban on meldonium has no justification.“Until clinical testing is undertaken to prove that meldonium has indeed performance-enhancing potential, WADA should provide amnesty to athletes who had been taking the drug at the direction of a doctor for a proven medical condition, if not all athletes.”Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Maria Sharapova will face a hearing for testing positive for meldonium, despite the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) issuing fresh guidance on the banned substance.WADA said on Tuesday athletes who tested positive for meldonium before March 1 could avoid bans.But the International Tennis Federation said Sharapova’s case will proceed.The Russian tested positive for the drug at this year’s Australian Open, after it was added to WADA’s banned substances list from January 1.Wada’s change in stance is because of a “lack of clear scientific information on excretion times”, meaning the agency has so far been unable to establish how long it takes for the drug to clear the human body.
U16 championship hurling A finalThe u16 hurling final was played in the county grounds Convoy on Thursday evening. St Eunan’s faced the league champions Buncrana undefeated at all age groups over the years. Indeed Buncrana club after a magnificent season were on the cusp of delivering a clean sweep of all underage hurling A competitions in 2014. For St Eunans the stakes were also high having lost out to Buncrana at u12 and u14 this year, they entered the field determined to avenge those and the u16 league final defeat in August.St Eunans opened brightly with two points in succession from Niall O Donnell. Buncrana replied with points from Fiachra McLochainn and Kevin Vaughan on 8 minutes. Points were exchanged but the St Eunans attack was getting a lot a ball. A shot from Cian Randles hit the crossbar on 15 minutes followed by a point from Niall o Donnell. Both defences were working very hard, tackling furiously, denying space, hooking and blocking. Then, after good work in midfield Niall o Donnell came onto the ball and drove the sliotar into the Buncrana net. Buncrana responded with a flurry of attacks but the shots were forced wide under pressure from the St Eunan defence. Keeper Eoin Mc Laughlin was then forced to make an excellent save at full length from a Buncrana strike 5 minutes from halftime. The break came quickly with the score St Eunans 1.04 Buncrana 0.06. Buncrana started the second half at a higher intensity with their midfield of Declan Mc Carron and Dylan Duffy prominent. Points from Paul Tourish, Kevin Vaughan and David Doherty had Buncrana in the lead by the 10th minute with the St Eunans defence under intense pressure. However, St Eunans refused to buckle and a long ball from Niall was finished in the net by his young brother Shane o Donnell on 12 minutes. Points from Pauric Neeley and Niall O Donnell restored Eunans lead But Buncrana replied with scores from Declan Mc Carron and James Doherty. Both teams were now throwing everything they had left into the game. On the 23th minute Niall O Donnell the games outstanding player took the ball on the 45m line, beat the Buncrana defence and scored a brilliant goal with an unstoppable shot. Five minutes left. A second run by Niall was blocked out for a 65 subsequently scored. Nevertheless, Buncrana were not beaten. Points from Dillon Duffy and Paul Tourish reduced the deficit to the minimum deep into injury time. Buncrana worked hard for that crucial score but the Eunans defence cleared every ball putting their bodies continuously on the line. Niall O Donnell fittingly scored the final point of the game for St Eunans to win by two points amidst wild celebrations. Prominent for Buncrana were James Doherty and Declan mc Carron. Whilst for St Eunans the whole defensive unit were outstanding and Niall O Donnell stood out driving on his team to victory. Final Score: St Eunans 3.09 to Buncrana 0 .16.County Minor Hurling Chairman and Manager Tom Clare presented the trophy to Captain Niall O Donnell praising both teams for their excellent display. Indeed the whole Buncrana management and team were gracious in defeat despite their obvious disappointment. In truth Donegal hurling was the winner with only a puck of a ball between the teams at the end. Niall O Donnell thanked Buncrana, the referee, linesmen and the county board for the use of the pitch.
