DONEGAL GIRLS HELP IRELAND TO WOMEN’S RUGBY TRIPLE CROWN

first_imgDONEGAL rugby star Larissa Muldoon and Nora Stapleton are celebrating tonight after helping Ireland’s Women wrap up the Triple Crown with a convincing 30-3 RBS 6 Nations win over Scotland.Ireland’s third victory from three matches this season maintains their push for the Grand Slam and also rubber-stamped their qualification for the 2014 Women’s Rugby World Cup.Scotland, who had failed to score a point in their opening two defeats to England and Italy, did take the lead at Lasswade – centre Lisa Ritchie kicking the hosts ahead with an early penalty. But back came Ireland and impressive full-back Niamh Briggs leveled things up on 23 minutes before the first try of the match arrived – Miller, who scored a hat-trick against England – finishing off a sweeping move in the corner.Scotland refused to wilt however and exerted considerable pressure on Ireland in the closing stages of the first half – only for a crucial turnover from Ashleigh Baxter to ensure that the visitors held on for an 8-3 lead at the break.Still the Irish didn’t having things their own way in the second half and continued errors saw Scotland grow in confidence.But when Briggs landed a penalty after Scotland fly-half Tanya Griffith was sin-binned for persistent infringements, Ireland settled back into their stride and the floodgates duly opened. Miller was the tormentor-in-chief again, clinically finishing off her fifth try in two matches, which Briggs converted before flanker Siobhan Fleming scored try number three for Ireland.Briggs rounded off a fine individual performance with a try of her own but hit the upright with her conversion attempt, ending up with a personal haul of 15 points, securing Ireland their first ever Triple Crown.Victory also means that Ireland, who host France next, are just two wins away from their maiden RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam.15 Niamh Briggs14 Ashleigh Baxter13 Lynne Cantwell12 Jenny Murphy11 Alison Miller10 Nora Stapleton9 Larissa Muldoon1 Fiona Coghlan2 Gillian Bourke3 Ailis Egan4 Sophie Spence5 Marie Louise Reilly6 Siobhan Fleming7 Claire Molloy8 Joy Neville Replacements:16 Stacey-Lea Kennedy17 Fiona Hayes18 Lauren Day19 Leigh Dargan20 Laura Guest21 Amy Davis22 Grace Davitt23 Niamh KavanaghDONEGAL GIRLS HELP IRELAND TO WOMEN’S RUGBY TRIPLE CROWN was last modified: February 23rd, 2013 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:DONEGAL GIRLS HELP IRELAND TO WOMEN’S RUGBY TRIPLE CROWNlast_img read more

MCBREARTY URGES STUDENTS TO APPLY EARLY FOR GRANTS AS ‘SUSI’ GOES LIVE

first_imgIndependent Councillor for the Stranorlar Electoral Area, Cllr Frank McBrearty, has urged all Third-level students wishing to apply for a higher and further education grant to do so early. Councillor McBrearty’s comments come as SUSI’s online applications service opened late last week.Ahead of the expected opening of the awards body’s online service, Cllr McBrearty advises students to get their applications in on time, and has asked that they read all information pertaining to eligibility criteria thoroughly prior to making their grant applications. McBrearty told Donegal Daily,”It’s critical that all those who wish to make an application to SUSI’s online application service, do so as early as possible.“If it’s the case that you think you might qualify for assistance through the grant scheme, student’s shouldn’t wait until they have received their college offer, as this could result in a long delay in them receiving their grants, andmay cause difficulties when applicants start their courses.“It’s therefore my advice to students to take the necessary steps in order to satisfy the SUSI requirements, to do so as soon as possible, and to read all instructions carefully; this should increase their chances of receiving grants without delay and without any unnecessary complication.While this year significant improvements to the susi.ie site have been made in order to make it much more user friendly, Cllr McBrearty has called on those charged with the site’s administration, to do more to make the various details concerning eligibility criteria as well as income assessment much more clear for applicants. McBrearty added, “As a Councillor, numerous students have contacted me with a number of queries which they have had in relation to their applications, but also as to how they will be assessed – this information must be communicated much more effectively with applicants when they make their submission online.”“Firstly, I’d like to highlight to applicants that there are a number of items which are disregarded from their incomes when they seek a grant, and it’s important that students are made aware of this so that they can correctly submit their income details.“Income which is not included in the assessment of an application is any income which applicants earn outside of term time; these are considered to be holiday earnings and applicants can earn up to €3,809 during this period.“I want to also make it clear to applicants that when they are applying to SUSI for a grant, they must also make sure that they have all the necessary supporting documentation, including a P21 statement – this will ensure that their application can be quickly processed with as little delay as possible.Furthermore, Cllr McBrearty has called on the government to make a number of changes to the grant system, particularly in relation to the awarding of Special Rate Grants for disadvantaged students, something which the Councillor states is necessary in order to ensure that those most in need of financial assistance can avail of it. McBrearty concluded, “More and more students are now in need of Special Rate Grants, but unfortunately, this government as well as successive governments, have failed in their duty to ensure that those who are most in need of financial assistance in order to achieve their educational needs, are being let down.”“I believe that those in power need to completely rethink how the grant system in this country operates, including how applicants are currently means tested and assessed – this needs to be done in order to make sure that education is made available to as many people as possible.”“Education is the powerful weapon we can use to change the world.Student Universal Support Ireland or ‘Susi’ offers funding to students who are in approved full-time, tertiary education in Ireland, as well as offering support to various student groups, ranging from early school leavers and mature students, to those wishing to return to education. The Online Grant Application System is open from May 8th and closes on August 1st.MCBREARTY URGES STUDENTS TO APPLY EARLY FOR GRANTS AS ‘SUSI’ GOES LIVE was last modified: May 14th, 2014 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:Election 2014:Frank McBreartynewsPoliticsSUSI Grantslast_img read more

Are We Getting Biased Science?

first_imgMuch more scientific research is being done than ever gets reported, say three researchers in a story reported by Science Daily.  High-impact journals tend to report selectively from a large field of medical and laboratory research.  As a result, “only a small proportion of all research results are eventually chosen for publication, and these results are unrepresentative of scientists’ repeated samplings of the real world.”  This gives a very distorted view of scientific research, they said.  They feel it is a “moral imperative” to fix the way scientific research is judged and disseminated.There is a strong likelihood that the Darwin-loving mainstream journals give inordinate publicity to evolutionary papers.  If the journals printed a true sample of the actual laboratory research that goes on, the science-to-Darwin ratio (like the signal to noise ratio) would probably shoot way up.  Science would sound much sweeter and clearer without the constant noise of evolutionary static.    This is the Darwin Party’s pump-and-dump scheme.  They artificially inflate the value of evolutionary research, then dump it on the unsuspecting public who think they are getting unbiased science.  This devalues science for everyone.(Visited 8 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more
