St Mary’s Park residents looking for better flood defences in Limerick

first_imgPredictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Print Local St Mary’s Park residents’ representative John Hourigan with Cllr Maurice Quinlivan(pic: Keith Wiseman)OVER a thousand residents in Limerick’s St Mary’s Parish have signed a petition calling for new flood defences along the nearby riverbank, claiming the “patch up job” they currently have is totally ineffective.The petition was organised by local men Richard Lyons and John Hourigan, who claim that millions of euros have been wasted patching the banks of the Shannon without any success. So far, 1,057 residents in St Mary’s Park have signed the petition calling on Limerick City and County Council to take immediate action in remedying the issue.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Mr Hourigan, who has lived in St Mary’s Parish for over 40 years, told the Limerick Post that families are living in fear of having their homes flooded again. He said residents want proper concrete barrier flood defences and insists that the sandbags and earth filling currently in place, are inadequate.“Tonnes of earth have been washed away. It’s a complete waste of time. Sandbags and earth filling won’t keep the water out and people are scared of their lives of more flooding,” said Mr Hourigan.“The job still hasn’t been done right after the floods earlier this year. When we get onto the Council they just fob us off and say they are looking after it. We want the job done properly,” he insists.Residents in St Mary’s Parish believe the riverbank will be breached again and are fearful they will be faced with another nightmare situation like in February of this year when their homes were left under several feet of river water.“Four times the riverbank has been patched up already. I believe without a shadow of a doubt the river will flood again. The riverbank is a fantastic facility, I’ve seen world champion athlete Paula Radcliffe running out there, and it deserves the job done right,” Mr Hourigan concluded.According to a spokesperson for Limerick City and County Council, the local authority continues to monitor the flood embankment in St Mary’s Park and in particular the section of embankment that failed on February 1 last.In a statement to the Limerick Post this week, the Council said, “Movement and settlement of this embankment continues and Limerick City and County Council has a contractor on site dealing with these matters as they arise. Temporary re-reinforcement and stabilisation works continue to be carried out on this section of the riverside embankment to prevent flooding.”Limerick City and County Council has made an application to Government for funding for permanent flood defence work in St Mary’s Park and is currently awaiting a decision.“The Council has been requested to remove a limited number of temporary sandbags on Verdant Place for the Summer and will arrange to do so over the coming days,” said a Council spokesperson.

K.S.A. §60-2415(a) states, “If the court finds the [sale] regular and in conformity with law and equity, it shall confirm the same.” That statute goes on to set out that, under the courts’ equitable powers, the only basis a court may use to deny a confirmation of sale is finding a bid “substantially inadequate.” While that term is not specifically defined in, we know that a sale for the total debt owed (i.e., “judgment, taxes, interest, and costs”) “shall be deemed adequate.” K.S.A. §60-2415(b).In two recent situations, the Court of Appeals reviewed what appears to be a common practice in many jurisdictions where the Motion and Order for Confirmation of Sheriff’s Sale are submitted, and sometimes even entered, simultaneously.  The defendant-borrower in JPMorgan Chase Bank, Nat’l Ass’n v. Taylor, 417 P.3d 272 (Kan. Ct. App. 2018) objected to the district court confirming the sheriff’s sale the same day the Motion to Confirm Sheriff’s Sale was filed without notifying her of the Order to Confirm Sheriff’s Sale ever having been filed.  Following judgment, Chase purchased the property at the sale for the full judgment amount and shortly thereafter, filed its confirmation pleadings. The defendant-borrower was sent a copy of the Motion to Confirm Sheriff’s Sale and eleven days later, she objected to the same, alleging that by not bidding the fair market value of the property, Chase was “cheating her out of equity. Despite the objection, however, the district court in Taylor entered the order confirming the sheriff’s sale the same day the motion was filed and when the defendant-borrower learned of this, she appealed claiming a violation of her due process rights for failure of the district court to hear and consider her objection.  The Court of Appeals, relying upon Kan. Sup. Ct. Rule 133, found that because the objection to the Motion for Confirmation of Sheriff’s Sale was filed eleven days after the motion, it was untimely and even though the Order confirming sale was entered prematurely, there was no error by the district court in failing to consider an untimely objection. Of particular note in this matter is that despite the full-debt bid and the statute dictating that the sale shall be deemed adequate, the Court of Appeals seems to go out of its way to discourage this type of practice and stating that, “any procedure adopted by a district court that allows for automatic approval of a sheriff’s sale without at least waiting to see if someone files an objection is subject to a later ruling that it is void as a violation of due process.” Taylor at 8-9.Reverse Mortg. Sols., Inc. v. Goldwyn, 2018 Kan. App. LEXIS 36 (Ct. App. July 6, 2018) decided just earlier this month, considered a number of interesting elements related to a Sheriff’s Sale, including the procedure for confirming the sale. This case involved a foreclosure of a reverse mortgage and subsequent in rem judgment against the borrower’s heir which then resulted in Reverse Mortgage Solutions purchasing the property at sheriff’s sale at a price less than the full-debt owed.  Similarly, the district court granted the motion requesting confirmation of the sheriff’s sale the same day it was filed. And, similarly, after an appeal claiming the order confirming sheriff’s sale was entered prematurely, the Court in Goldwyn, as in Taylor, agreed that the district court should have allowed time for any opposing parties to respond to the motion.However, the thrust of the defendant-borrower’s argument was that because the sale was not for the fair market value of the property, the sale should be deemed substantially inadequate. The Court correctly noted that even if that argument were true, the failure to bid fair market value does not necessarily mean the sale is substantially inadequate. The reliance on this argument allowed the Court to find that the premature entry of the order was harmless error and the confirmation of sale was upheld.  While neither of these cases ultimately resulted in unconfirmed sales, district courts in Kansas appear to be taking note of the scrutiny the Court of Appeals has been giving the confirmation of sheriff’s sale and at least one district has recently begun requiring hearings on all Motions to Confirm Sheriff’s Sale regardless of whether the sale was for the total debt or there is no deficiency judgment.  last_img read more

Aubameyang, Sanchez makes themselves at home as Man Utd cut gap on City

first_imgLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored on his Arsenal debut but was overshadowed by Aaron Ramsey’s hat-trick in a 5-1 Premier League thrashing of Everton, while former Gunner Alexis Sanchez netted his first Manchester United goal on Saturday.Club record signing Aubameyang immediately rekindled his relationship with former Borussia Dortmund teammate Henrikh Mkhitaryan, also making his home bow, as Arsenal’s new-look front line shone, but it was Ramsey who provided much of the end product with his first career hat-trick. Laurent Koscielny was also on target.It was Sanchez’s departure that paved the way for Mkhitaryan’s move to the Emirates Stadium from Manchester United, but the Chilean also got accustomed to his new home, scoring at the second attempt after his penalty was saved as Jose Mourinho’s men eased past Huddersfield Town 2-0 at Old Trafford.Victory moved United to within 13 points of runaway leaders Manchester City, who dropped points for just the fourth time in the Premier League this season in a 1-1 draw at Burnley. Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s equaliser eight minutes from time cancelled out Danilo’s spectacular opener.A renewed sense of optimism at Arsenal following not only Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan’s arrivals, but also Mesut Ozil’s decision to commit to a new contract this week, exploded in a four-goal salvo in the opening 37 minutes.Mkhitaryan teed up Ramsey for an early tap-in before Koscielny bundled home Shkodran Mustafi’s flick-on and Ramsey’s long-range effort deflected in off Eliaquim Mangala on his Everton debut.The moment the Arsenal faithful had been waiting for came eight minutes before the break when Aubameyang chipped home Mkhitaryan’s through ball and the goal was allowed to stand despite the Gabon striker clearly being offside when the pass was played.Everton restored some pride after the break as Dominic Calvert-Lewin reduced the arrears 25 minutes from time before Ramsey completed his hat-trick to move Arsenal back to within five points of the top four.,– United scale ‘Berlin wall’ –Mourinho had called on his players to mark the occasion of the 60th anniversary of the Munich air disaster that killed eight of the great United Busby Babes side by bouncing back from Wednesday’s defeat at Tottenham Hotspur.But the hosts had to wait until 10 minutes into the second half to make the breakthrough when Romelu Lukaku got across his marker to volley home Juan Mata’s cross for his 19th of the season.“We had to be patient but had to keep the intensity high and the pressure,” Mourinho said. “We had to break down the Berlin wall organised so well by (Huddersfield manager) David Wagner.” Sanchez was then given the chance to cap his home debut 21 minutes from time when he was brought down just inside the area by Michael Hefele.And much to his relief, Sanchez tapped home the rebound after Jonas Lossl had saved his initial effort from the penalty spot.“It was nice for Alexis Sanchez to win a match, the first at home,” added Mourinho. “It was not the goal of his dreams, but it is a goal.”City were made to rue a host of missed chances, most notably when Raheem Sterling failed to turn Kyle Walker’s low cross into an unguarded net from point-blank range, as Burnley salvaged a valuable point despite seeing their winless league streak extended to nine matches.“Football is about goals. We needed to score the second, third and fourth when we had the chance. When you arrive in the last 15 minutes at Burnley 1-0, this is what can happen,” said City boss Pep Guardiola.Leicester City missed the magic of star man Riyad Mahrez as they drew 1-1 at home against Swansea City.The Algerian hasn’t trained since Leicester priced Manchester City out of a move for Mahrez on transfer deadline day.Southampton earned their first win since November by edging a thriller 3-2 at West Bromwich Albion to move out of the bottom three.Brighton also bagged their first league win in seven games, beating West Ham 3-1, while Bournemouth moved up to ninth by coming from behind to beat Stoke 2-1.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Gough’s last hole birdie wins McGregor Trophy

first_img Tags: Conor Gough, Kedleston Park, McGregor Trophy Boy international Conor Gough claimed his second England crown when he holed out from 25ft on the last to win the McGregor Trophy at Kedleston Park, Derbyshire.The 15-year-old signed off with a 68 and a 72-hole total of seven-under par, snatching a one shot victory in the English U16 boys’ open championship from Yorkshire boy champion Ben Schmidt.The McGregor Trophy is one of golf’s most sought-after U16 titles and Gough follows in the footsteps of such previous winners as Justin Rose and Eduardo Molinari.Gough, who has previously won the U14 Reid Trophy, is now eyeing the U18 Carris Trophy and commented: “I’m really pleased with this and it gives me a chance to win the triple, so it means a lot.”Gough (Stoke Park) was three shots off the lead, held by Schmidt, at the start of the final round. But, after 12 holes he’d slipped back further and trailed by five. “I knew I had to do something special,” he said – and that’s what he did.He played the remaining six holes in four under par, with birdies on 13; 15, where he chipped in; 17, where he had a tap in; and 18 where he rolled in that winning 25-footer.“I hit good shots and the right shots at the right time and I played really well under the pressure,” said Gough.This is his second win of the year, after claiming the boys’ title at the Fairhaven Trophies.

India vs England: 5 things to know about 2nd Test at Lord’s

first_imgThe Anderson-Jadeja row has added more spice to the 2nd Test at Lord’sA lifeless pitch at Trent Bridge ensured the first test between England and India was drawn, despite some remarkable individual performances.The teams have only three days off to prepare for the second test at Lord’s on Thursday.To end its first streak in 21 years of nine straight tests without a win, England has recalled left-arm spinner Simon Kerrigan, less than a year after a nightmare debut in the Ashes at The Oval. England has played three tests this summer without a specialist spinner and drawn two and lost one to Sri Lanka. Kerrigan says, if he’s picked, the Ashes experience will weigh on him, but he’s a better player for it.Lord’s is normally a seamers’ track, and India has won only once there (1986) in 16 tests, but both sides were also expecting an England-friendly pitch at Nottingham.Here are five things to know ahead of the second test:ANOTHER SLOW PITCH: Trent Bridge groundsman Steve Birks apologized before the first test for preparing a flat pitch, but that was partly to help Nottingham recoup expenses by trying to ensure the test lasted five days. Lord’s counterpart Mick Hunt had some big-shot visitors on Tuesday, including England captain Alastair Cook, coach Peter Moores, managing director Paul Downton and board pitch consultant Chris Wood. None made a public statement about the conditions, but England batsmen Sam Robson and Gary Ballance were hoping for, more than expecting, a lively track.advertisementEngland seamers James Anderson and Stuart Broad bowled 113 overs at Trent Bridge, and won’t be excited if Lord’s is also placid. Anderson and Cook warned the fast bowlers won’t be able to endure all five tests of the series if they aren’t given pitches with more seam and bounce. “We need to have a contingency plan,” Cook says. “We just need a pitch with a bit of life in it. Lord’s looked green two days before the start, but its condition on Thursday morning will be what counts. It looked the same two days before the first Sri Lanka test in June.”COOK STILL SEARCHING FOR RUNS: Cook’s batting performances have been as lifeless as the Trent Bridge track. He was out for 5 in the first test, and spared from batting again by India batting out the fifth day to confirm a draw. That pressure hasn’t decreased, as his average this year has dropped to less than 14, with a top score of 28. In that department, he was showed up by the tailenders. Last-man Anderson hit his highest test score of 81, and India’s No. 9 Bhuvneshwar Kumar rattled off two half centuries. Meanwhile, his captaincy decisions were better, but each side was always going to struggle to bowl out the other twice.PRESSURE STILL ON DHONI: Mahendra Singh Dhoni did not have the best of tests as India captain at Trent Bridge. He ran himself out on 82 in the first innings and ran out of ideas during Joe Root’s and Anderson’s record 10th-wicket partnership of 198. His bowlers continually bowled short to Anderson, despite the pitch keeping the ball low. His fielding setup often allowed Root a single to retain the strike. Both of those errors allowed England back into the game and took the impetus away from India, a mistake he won’t want to repeat at Lord’s.BROAD AND ANDERSON KEY: Broad and Anderson bowled almost 60 overs each at Trent Bridge. Their importance to Cook and England cannot be understated, and the state of the pitch will determine how badly the England captain needs to use them. The effect of pitches that neutralize them, and a test series crammed within 42 days, means Cook is under an extra burden to manage his strike force. Broad is also managing a knee injury that ruled him out of the one-day internationals against Sri Lanka.KOHLI OFF FORM: Virat Kohli was identified as India’s dangerman ahead of the first test. The 25-year-old averages 44 from 25 tests but could manage only nine runs across two innings on a surface made for batting at Trent Bridge. Broad dismissed him both times, and Kohli will be wary of that developing into a trend.last_img read more
