21-year-old miner stabbed to death during row over hammock

first_imgA 21-year-old miner, who was stabbed during a row over a hammock at 111 Miles Mahdia, Region Eight on Tuesday last, succumbed to his injuries while receiving medical attention at the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC).Hubert Willi, of Campbelltown Village, Mahdia reportedly took his last breath on Sunday morning.Based on information received, the now dead young man and the suspect were under the influence of alcohol when the stabbing incident took place.According to the police, on the day in question, Willi was walking along the Mahdia roadway when he saw the suspect and confronted him about a hammock belonging to him. An argument ensued between them and it was at this time that the perpetrator became annoyed and dealt the victim two stabs to his body before escaping. He was reportedly stabbed to his right side, lower back and buttocks.The injured man was picked up and transported to the Mahdia District Hospital but due to the seriousness of the injuries, he was referred and transported to the GPHC to seek further medical attention.Willi was a patient at the medical institution until his demise at about 10:00h on Sunday. A post-mortem is expected to be performed today.The suspect was arrested and has subsequently confessed to wounding the now dead man. He is expected to be arraigned with murder when he makes his first court appearance.The issue of miners being stabbed to death following arguments or altercations continues to increase. Intoxication is usually evident in the circumstances leading to these unfortunate situations.On Friday last, a teen miner was allegedly killed by a close relative who was also his employer at the time of his demise.Nineteen-year-old Dave Boyal, a miner of Batavia, Cuyuni River, Region Seven (Cuyuni-Mazaruni), and other miners were in their hammocks when the alleged perpetrator entered the mining camp.He appeared intoxicated and commenced cutting down the hammocks that the miners (including Boyal) had tied.According to the police, Boyal tried to persuade his relative to desist from doing so, and it was during this intervention that the suspect picked up an arrow and fatally stabbed the teenager in the abdomen.Just last month, alcohol and quick tempers proved to be a deadly mix when another 19-year-old miner was stabbed to death by his associate in a camp at Frenchman, located a few miles from Mabura.The dead teen, Alex Daniels, was said to be consuming alcohol with his killer when an argument broke out. Persons around intervened but when the duo returned to their camp, the argument escalated and the perpetrator used a knife to stab Daniels in the region of his heart.In December 2018, another miner lost his life after being allegedly stabbed to death by a Brazilian national whom he was arguing with over bar-b-que sausages.The suspect, a chef, was said to be engaged in a heated argument with the now dead man over the frying of sausages, which led to the chef allegedly stabbing the man to his chest.In October last, a gold miner allegedly stabbed a 20-year-old to death as they argued over cigarettes in the Potaro mining community.

This is ‘just the start’-Salah vows to Reds fans

first_img0Shares0000Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah has scored 43 goals in his first season for the club© AFP/File Lindsey PARNABYLONDON, United Kingdom, May 11 – Mohamed Salah has reassured Liverpool fans his stunning first season is “just the beginning” of his time at the club despite speculation over interest from Real Madrid.The Egyptian collected awards in Liverpool on Thursday after being voted player of the season by both the club’s fans and his teammates before boarding a flight to collect the Football Writers’ Association’s award in London. The 25-year-old has scored 43 goals in all competitions since arriving from Roma last summer, a return that has seen him heavily linked with Spanish giants Real Madrid, who face Liverpool in the Champions League later this month.But Salah, who needs just one more goal to become the outright record-holder for the most strikes in a 38-match season in the Premier League, appears content with life at the club.“I’m very happy here, everything is fine,” he said. “Of course I have got ambitions for the future with Liverpool. As you can see we had a great season, now we are in the Champions League final and everyone is excited.“It is just the start. This is my first year here and it is the same for some other players. It is just the beginning.”Liverpool cannot focus all of their energies on Real just yet, with the battle for a place in next season’s Champions League still not settled.A point in their final match, at home to Brighton on Sunday, will be enough to secure a top-four finish, after which all eyes turn to Kiev.Salah, who was last month crowned Professional Footballers’ Association players’ player of the year, won the writers’ award ahead of Kevin De Bruyne and Harry Kane.Speaking in London, he said: “I was here four years ago (with Chelsea) and a lot of people were saying he couldn’t play in the Premier League. I left Chelsea but it was always in my mind to come back to make them wrong. So I make them wrong.“I’m not the same player. I improved a lot in Rome but I can’t say everything is me. The team-mates are maybe different. The coach is tough and they always help me inside and outside the pitch.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Hodgson on England’s victory over Portugal: We looked more and more dangerous

first_imgRoy Hodgson was determined to remain upbeat after England’s 1-0 victory over Portugal.The Three Lions completed their Euro 2016 preparations at Wembley with a third victory in a row, thanks to Chris Smalling’s late goal against ten-man Portugal playing without Cristiano Ronaldo.They were a man down ten minutes before half time when Bruno Alves’ challenge was high and reckless on Harry Kane – WATCH IT HEREAfter beating Turkey, Australia and now Fernando Santos’ side, the 68-year-old boss now has nine days to prepare for their Group B opener with Russia.Hodgson said: “It’s often a struggle when you play against 10 men, especially when the team is well organised defensively.“We’d have preferred 11 v 11 so the game would have flowed more, it would have been attack, defence, attack, defence. Tonight it was pretty much us on the ball on the time having to find a way through a packed and well organised Portuguese defence.“But I’m pleased we kept our composure, please we showed patience and pleased with the clean sheet and pleased the longer the game wore on we got more and more dangerous and looked like scoring a goal.“When we eventually got it, it was a result of a long period of pressure and sustained pressure.”Rooney started in a front-three with Kane – the Premier League’s golden boot winner – and Jamie Vardy – champion with Leicester City in 2015/16- but the Three Lions lacked a cutting edge in their final match ahead of the European Championship.He added to ITV Sport: “It went like it went. I am not prepared to add my voice to the debate“I am not prepared to say this is better, or that is better. We need both systems. We need all of those players playing well. We need all of those players doing what they can do well.“Of course in every game of football some people have a really good night, and some have a less good night, and I am not prepared to stand here on national television and criticise some players while praising others.“I am really happy. The 23 players have really done well and if I start being dissatisfied when we win three games in a row against Turkey, Australia and Portugal then I am going to be a very hard coach to please.”last_img read more

PRINCE CHARLES: NOW I WANT TO VISIT TORY (AND MEET THE KING)

first_imgPRINCE Charles may be returning to Donegal – to meet the King of Tory.The British royal paid a private visit to Glebe House overlooking Gartan yesterday during his tour of Donegal.And he expressed a hope of one day going to Tory to see where his artistic mentor Derek Hill used to paint. Earlier Charles had told an audience in Letterkenny: “His (Derek Hill’s) love of Donegal is well-known. Perhaps his greatest contribution to local culture was his encouragement of the now world-famous Tory Island art.“In fact, amongst quite a collection I have of his paintings, I have one or two that he did on Tory Island and he used to tell me an awful lot about it.”Later in the day he went to the Glebe Gallery on a private tour and spoke about wanting to see Tory for himself and see the landscapes in the Hill paintings he has.We understand Charles also knew Tory has its own reigning monarch and said it would be great to meet him. A return visit to Donegal next year could now be on the cards, according to officials.And it could see Ireland’s last king, Patsy Dan Rodgers, meet a prince on the famous gaeltacht island.The King of Tory Patsy Dan Rodgers could be greeting prince charlesPRINCE CHARLES: NOW I WANT TO VISIT TORY (AND MEET THE KING) was last modified: May 26th, 2016 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:donegalPrince CharlesTory Islandlast_img read more

Farmer’s anxious wait to see if flood has stolen his livelihood

first_imgA farmer who has battled for days to save his €300,000 potatoe cropafter the Donegal floods is hoping he has done enough to save hislivelihood.Seamus Lynch was left devastated when he arrived at his 125 acres ofcrops at Porthall in Lifford early on Wednesday morning.A combination of a spring tide and the torrential rain which lashedthe north-west on Tuesday night left many parts of his lands on thebanks of the River Foyle waist-high in water. The experienced farmer knew there was no time to waste and set aboutsourcing water pumps to get the water off his land in a bid to savehis crops which also included barley and corn.He erected seven pumps which have been working around the clock to getthe water off the land.A team also dug trenches to allow the water get back into the River Foyle.Seamus’ future is in the lap of the Gods and he will know in aroundtwo weeks time if he has managed to save the crop. The cost could be huge with each acre of his 65 acres of potatoesworth up to €5,000 an acre as well as barley and corn worth up to atotal crop of almost €500,000.Seamus Lynch in one of the fields where his crops have been destroyed due to the massive floods. (North West Newspix)A frustrated Seamus said “It’s very much a salvage job, just to seewhat we can save. We have been pumping out water steady for the pastnumber of days.“It’s just so hard to take it all in what has happened. It’s been anightmare to be honest. We just have to keep sticking with it.“We will know the full extent of the damage and what we have been ableto save in a fortnight’s time,” he said.Mr Lynch is just one of hundreds of people who have been left affectedby the floods which saw more than a month’s rain fall in just a fewhours. Across the Inishowen peninsula, people are still trying to literallypick up the pieces five days after the event which changed their livesforever.Bernie Kearney, whose home was struck by a mudslide in Urris, has beenforced to board up her home she was so proud of and move in withrelatives.Bernie, who lost her husband James in a freak fishing tragedy 22 yearsago, knows she will never get permission to build under the hillswhich attacked her home on Tuesday evening just after 8.30pm.Despite this Bernie, who is originally from Gleneely, wants to remainin the community which has welcomed her and which she now calls home. “Despite all that has happened here I still think I want to live here.These people have been so good to me and I feel this is where I willalways belong.”And despite all the hardship that people have suffered in thistight-knit community in recent days, there are also signs of hope andnew life.Last Tuesday, Edel Kerin and husband Damian were due to give birth butEdel found herself being transported by tractor to escape the floodsin the village of Clonmany.The couple’s bouncing baby boy eventually arrived on Thursdayafternoon and they couldn’t resist calling the 8Ib 4oz bundle of joy,Noah.Donegal County Council staff have been commended by their reaction tothe mammoth task involved in the clean-up and rehoming of people.A total of 17 families have been left homeless as a result of the deluge.Council staff have worked over the weekend manning phonelines andoffices for people with emergency situations or simply looking foradvice.A council spokesman said “We are open again today (Sun) in Buncranaand Carndonagh providing emergency housing assistance. We are workingwith each household affected with a view to determining whatassistance is required beyond the initial period of emergencyaccommodation as it is likely that some families will not be able toreturn to their homes for some time. If you need our help just call inor phone 074 91 53900 or out of hours call 074 91 72288.”As well as householders, sporting and voluntary groups have been leftwith a huge headache s a result of the flooding with clubhousesdestroyed and equipment ruined.The council is reminding these organisations that they will be coveredby a scheme run by the Irish Red Cross.“The Irish Red Cross will administer an emergency humanitarian supportscheme to assist small businesses, community, voluntary and sportingbodies affected by the devastating floods in Donegal.“We expect that details of the scheme will be made available shortlyand we will keep you updated,” said a spokesman.However, communities too are taking a lead role in helping themselvesand supporting their neighbours.Buncrana GAA club yesterday held an open afternoon for anyoneaffected in any way by the floods.Trained counsellors, people from the Department of Social Protectionand Samaritans were on hand to speak about issues while the clubalso showed the All-Ireland semi-final between Dublin and Tyrone.The club’s Health and Wellbeing officer Áine Daly said the idea was tolend a listening ear in relaxed surroundings with tea and sandwichesprovided.Farmer’s anxious wait to see if flood has stolen his livelihood was last modified: August 29th, 2017 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:LiffordPorthallpotatoesSeamus Lynchlast_img read more
