‘WE NEED MORE ANSWERS ON FERRY CASE’ – VICTIM

first_imgDonal O LoinsighTHE victims of paedophile school caretaker Micheal Ferry say they’ve been left with too many unanswered questions following the publication of a HSE investigation into the scandal.Yesterday morning we revealed how social workers failed to properly investigate Ferry after his conviction in 2002 for the abuse of a boy at Ardscoil Mhuire in Gaoth Dobhair. As a result, and as a result of many failure elsewhere, Ferry went on to abuse more boys on the premises until he was arrested there EIGHT YEARS LATER. Victims say they are deeply unhappy and disturbed that no-one at Colaiste  Cholmcille has been held accountable whatsoever for their actions  – and inactions – during the scandal.The DPP says they did nothing wrong and will not face any criminal prosecution whatsoever. The directors have consistently denied any wrongdoing, insist Ferry was not ’employed’ there.One of those directors – Donal O Loinsigh – was in court in October 2002 when Ferry pleaded guilty to sickening attacks on a young boy. Mr O Loinsigh heard a judge put Ferry on the sex offenders register for SEVEN years.Mr O Loinsigh would have been familiar with child protection issues having worked as a teacher for many years in Terenure, Dublin.Yet Colaiste Cholmcille continued to pay Michael Ferry as caretaker of their Ardscoil Mhuire premises.“How can the directors say he wasn’t working there when Mickey Ferry was arrested on the grounds of the college in 2010,” asked Derek Mulligan, the young Gaoth Dobhair man who has bravely spoken out on the affair since Ferry was jailed in 2011 for 14 years for abusing him and three other boys.“It was known locally he was working there. The HSE now says they shouldn’t have taken the word of the directors and acted appropriately.“Why weren’t the victims interviewed by gardai in relation to their DPP investigation? I wasn’t and I know others weren’t either? I’d like to get some clarification on that..“On reading the findings of the HSE report I find it incredible that the DPP found no grounds to prosecute the directors. Why aren’t we getting the promised Garda report that alan shatter promised us in 2012?“We are now taking legal advice on how we deal with the DPP decision. We will have to take Ireland to the European Court of Human Rights now because it looks like there is no justice in this country.”Michael Ferry was seen with young college students in Dunlewey in April 2006. The person who saw him is the sister of the first victim (in the 2002 case). She made a formal complaint to Gardai. The HSE has no record of this complaint. Gardai did call a college director to once again warn that Ferry was a paedophile.At this time Michael Ferry was continuing to abuse children in both Dunlewey and in Gaoth Dobhair.“We want answers,” said Derek Mulligan.“We are going to get them.”‘WE NEED MORE ANSWERS ON FERRY CASE’ – VICTIM was last modified: April 4th, 2014 by John2Share 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:abuse inquiryderek mulliganDonal O LoinsighHSEMichael Ferrypaedophilevictimlast_img read more

Don’t Go Quarters Without Putting Up Points

first_imgThere is something you’ll notice about football (American football). The teams that tend to lose big games have quarters in which they score no points. When you look at all four quarters and the number of points scored by each team, the losing team seems to have taken quarters off. Because they go quarters without putting any points on the board, they find themselves in difficult circumstances later in the game.There are always reasonable excuses not to play full out. At the time of this writing, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, providing the excuse that people will not be at work and not interested in doing anything now. Even though people will be at work, and those that are will likely have more time because some people are missing. Instead of “taking the quarter off,” find people who are around and engage with them.Right after Thanksgiving, we get to the big holidays, including Christmas and New Years. More people will be off work, and those at work are as likely to be checked out for the year, having finished up their work. If they are at work, they’re likely to have already shifted their thinking into their next year’s goals and projects and tasks. What you want to talk to them about is their next year, and the ideas you have that will help ensure their next year is a success.When you take quarters off, you fall behind. In the game of football, when you score, the points are put on the board in that quarter. When it comes to sales—and revenue attainment—the numbers you put up in the quarter are the result of the activity you took in prior quarters. Because there is a lag time between when you do the work of creating opportunities and when you win them, the quarters in which you don’t put up enough points don’t show up until some time in the future, meaning you won’t know you are behind until it is too late for you to do anything about it.Like the game of football, once you fall behind, it is increasingly difficult to catch up. If you have a zero in a quarter, you have to double your goal in a future quarter just to get even. And if it is difficult to reach your goals now, doubling them isn’t going to be any easier.

Wisconsin Star Joe Schobert Thinks Iowa’s Offensive Line May Be Better Than Alabama’s

first_imgWisconsin's stadium from the back of one of the end zones.MADISON, WI – SEPTEMBER 10: A general view of Camp Randall Stadium as the Wisconsin Badgers take on the Oregon State Beavers at on September 10, 2011 in Madison Wisconsin. Wisconsin defeated Oregon State 35-0. (Photo by Jonathan Daniel/Getty Images)In the season opener, Wisconsin went up against Alabama, and the Crimson Tide had little trouble opening up holes for star running back Derrick Henry. The junior back ran for 147 yards and three touchdowns on just 13 carries against the Badgers. Wisconsin star linebacker Joe Schobert doesn’t think that ‘Bama necessarily has the best offensive line that he’s faced. That honor goes to the Iowa Hawkeyes. Schobert had a monster game in a losing effort against Iowa, with three sacks and two forced fumbles, but he had a ton of praise for the Hawkeyes, per The Gazette. “I put them on par with Alabama, maybe even a little more,” Schobert told the Dubuque Telegraph Herald. “They want to hit you more than Alabama wants to hit you. Alabama is a good, physical offensive line, but I think Iowa kind of takes it to that next step and wants to run at you and wants to physically punch you. We knew that coming in and they lived up to it today. It was just great competition between us and them.”The advanced line stats tell a bit of a mixed story. According to Football Study Hall, Alabama ranks 23rd nationally in adjusted line rushing yards, and 40th in adjusted sack rate. Iowa is better in preventing sack (18th) but lags behind in the run blocking analytics (69th). Either way, Iowa should be proud of the huge Big Ten West win. Being mentioned in the same breath as Alabama is rarely a bad thing.[The Gazette]last_img read more

Parents Of Texas A&M’s Admon Gilder Left Game Early, Missed His Game-Tying Layup vs. Northern Iowa

first_imgAdmon Gilder shoots a lay up against Northern Iowa.Twitter/@marchmadnessTexas A&M’s epic comeback against Northern Iowa, in which the Aggies made up a 12 point deficit in 44 seconds, is statistically the greatest last-minute comeback in college basketball history. Unfortunately, the parents of Admon Gilder, the Aggie who capped off the comeback with the game-tying layup before the buzzer, weren’t in the arena to see it. The Gilders left the game minutes earlier, assuming that the Aggies were about to lose, to head back to Dallas with work the next morning. Of course, because of it they missed their son being part of basketball history.Admon Gilder says his parents left Northern Iowa game early to get back to Dallas for work. Watched end in car on phone.— Kate Hairopoulos (@khairopoulos) March 23, 2016Yahoo Sports‘ Jeff Eisenberg has more:“They left the game with probably about a minute to go,” the younger Gilder said Wednesday. “They were at the gas station on the way back and someone came out and told them that I’d just hit the game-tying shot.”Paula and Admon Sr. both had to be at work early the next morning in their hometown of Dallas, a roughly four-hour drive from Oklahoma City. They decided they were already too far from the arena to turn around, so they followed overtime and double overtime on their phones instead.Gilder, now an Aggie hero, doesn’t hold it against his parents.“I probably would have left too,” Gilder said.Don’t expect to see the Gilders leaving Thursday’s game in Anaheim against Oklahoma early…unless they think they’re bringing the team a bit of luck.[Yahoo Sports]More: Vote In Our “Most Annoying People In Sports Media” Bracket >>>last_img read more

Wholesale prices up 03 pct in March a hint of inflation

first_imgWASHINGTON – U.S. wholesale prices increased 0.3 per cent in March, driven higher by the largest increase in food costs in nearly four years.The Labor Department said Tuesday that the March gain in the producer price index, which measures inflation pressures before they reach the consumer, followed a 0.2 per cent rise in February and a 0.4 per cent jump in January.Food prices at the wholesale level surged 2.2 per cent, the biggest increase since April 2014, with many categories showing gains. Energy costs, however, fell 2.1 per cent as gasoline prices dropped 3.7 per cent, the largest monthly decline since last May.Over the past 12 months, wholesale prices have risen 3 per cent, the fastest annual pace since last November and another sign that inflation pressures have started to increase after years of being dormant.Rising food prices are tied to weather that affected crops, but analysts still believe the report shows that inflation pressures are beginning to increase.“The numbers aren’t yet alarming, but neither can we say with any confidence that (wholesale) inflation has peaked,” said Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics.Core inflation, which excludes volatile food and energy prices, was up 0.3 per cent in March, and 2.7 per cent over the past 12 months.The Federal Reserve last month increased its benchmark interest rate by a quarter-point and signalled that it expected to raise rates a total of three times this year, the same number of rate hikes it delivered in 2017. However, many economists believe that stronger economic growth and a rise in inflation pressures will end up pushing the Fed to slightly accelerate its pace of rate hikes to four increases this year.The big increase in food costs reflected widespread gains across a number of categories with fish prices jumping 62.5 per cent, the biggest gain since 2014, while egg prices were up 41.6 per cent and vegetable costs rose 31.5 per cent.last_img read more
