first_imgRory Kavanagh wins another ball in midfield for St Eunan’s today.Pic Brian McDaid/Cristeph StudioCOUNTY Champions captain Rory Kavanagh has led praise to his club veteran John Haran and St Eunan’s manager Maxi Curran after today’s title victory over Glenswilly.Kavanagh had a superb game himself, popping up when needed despite tight marking – and his catch in his own square at the death prevented a Glenswilly goal chance, and led to a ninth point for Eunan’s at the other end.The Scoil Cholmcille teacher said Man of the Match Haran had been immense again this season, despite planning to retire from the game a year ago. “He has been absolutely wonderful and I’m delighted that John was awarded Man of the Match. He fully deserved it today,” said Rory.On the manager, he went on: “I know there were a few people who questioned the appointment of Maxi to the club management, bringing in an outsider.“Well I can tell you he has been fantastic with us. He has brought in a new level of preparation for games and he has opened the eyes of players young and old at the club from everything he does.”  Man of the Match John HaranCAPTAIN FANTASTIC RORY KAVANAGH HEAPS PRAISE ON MAXI AND HARAN was last modified: November 2nd, 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:John HaranMaxi CurranRory KavanaghSt Eunanslast_img read more

Delight as beach wheelchair made available for Carrickfinn beach

first_imgDonegal Airport has announced that a beach accessible wheelchair has been made available for Carrickfinn beach.Beach wheelchairs allow wheelchair users to access the strand with ease.Five-year-old Eva McCafferty from Crolly was the first person to use the new wheelchair to access the beach, something a traditional wheelchair would stopped her from doing. Eva’s auntie Breda told Donegal Daily how delighted they are that Eva can now enjoy days at the beach, something she wouldn’t have been able to do before.Eva, who suffers from epilepsy and global developmental delay, has to make the long trip to Temple Street Hospital in Dublin several times a year, but thanks to Bumbleance the journey is much more enjoyable.Breda, who is a fundraising co-ordinator for Bumbleance, said that the service provided by the charity has made a world of difference to little Eva and that the trip is much more comfortable for both Eva and her parents.Another person to benefit from the beach accessible wheelchair is wheelchair user Una Bonner from Burtonport. Speaking to Donegal Daily, Una says; “Having been to many beaches in different locations it always posed a problem to gain access. This is mainly caused by rough terrain between land and beach, blowing soft sand and other washed up debris from the sea.“In some beaches close to built up areas there may be board walks to the beach but you will still encounter soft sand. Having the facility of the beach wheelchair deals with a lot of these issues.Una enjoyed soaking up the sun on Carrickfinn beach“Weather depending I would love to take advantage of our beautiful beaches!”Una also highlighted that assistance is needed when pushing or pulling the beach wheelchair, and cannot be operated by the person using the wheelchair.She also said that people may need assistance getting in and out of the beach wheelchair as it is quite low to the ground, although this depends on the mobility of each individual. The wheelchair will be stored at the airport, and if you’d like to use it simply get in touch with the airport on 074 9548284 with some notice regarding when you would like to book the chair.A spokesperson for Donegal Airport says; “Donegal County Council are hoping that the beach wheelchair can be utilised and enjoyed by people and families visiting Carrickfinn Beach this summer.“It is also hoped that the beach wheelchair can be utilised as a proactive and positive commodity for all beach users.”Donegal County Council have also provided beach accessible wheelchairs in Rathmullan and Downings. If you would like to use the beach accessible wheelchair in Rathmullan, you can do so by emailing or get in touch with Aengus on 086 8123019. If you would like to avail of the Downings beach wheelchair, give Jamie a call on 087 1808140. More good news from Donegal Airport is that there will be a charity skydiving event taking place between the 4th and 7th of August.Donegal Airport will be playing host to the fifth annual Donegal Charity Parachute Jump with The Irish Parachute Club (Skydive IPC).In fact, a member of the Donegal Daily team is taking part!

Delhi storyteller and dastangoi exponent drowns in lake near Pune

first_imgIn a tragic incident, Ankit Chadha, a Delhi-based writer and storyteller allegedly drowned in Uksan Lake near the hilly environs of Kamshet, 62 km near Pune.The 30-year-old Chadha was noted as a highly talented exponent of dastangoi – a 13th century Urdu oral storytelling art form, and had toured India and the globe extensively lecturing and practicing the art in a bid to keep a dying tradition alive.According to the Kamshet police, the incident took place on Thursday evening. Chadha had come down to Lake Uksan with a friend for a trip along the banks of the lake.“According to the deceased’s friend, he slipped and fell at a point near the shore of the lake. Despite cries for help, the deceased, who did not know swimming, drowned into the deep waters. We were informed of the incident by the locals,” said an officer from the Kamshet police station, adding that the police were probing the events that led to Chadha’s death.Aided by rescue teams, his body was fished out of the lake and reached Pune late Thursday night where it was immediately flown to New Delhi following completion of formalities.Chadha was one among the dozen or so practicing exponents of dastangoi in the country.Becoming infatuated with this art form while studying history at Delhi’s Hindu College, his presentations on the mystic poet-saint Kabir and 14th century musician-poet Amir Khusrow Dehlavi were particularly noted, as were his biographical accounts (told in dastangoi form) of the ill-fated Dara Shikoh.His fascination with Amir Khusrau led him to pen Amir Khusrau: The Man in Riddles (2016). He also co-authored My Gandhi Story (2014, with Nina Sabnani and illustrator Rajesh Vengad).He had spoken on, and performed, this unique art form in the Harvard and Yale universities, besides other parts of the United States.Chadha was in the city for an engagement on May 12 to present the Dastan-e-Kabir (story of Kabir) in dastangoi at the Gyaan Adab Centre before tragedy cut short his life.He is survived by his parents and an elder brother.last_img read more
