An attack on a local scenic area in which up to 20 semi-mature trees were cut down has been described as “senseless and shocking.”The trees were hacked down last weekend at Drumboe Woods in the Twin Towns.A major investment was made turning the woods into an area which could be enjoyed by the local community recently with pathways and signage as well as the planting of more trees. Coillte is aware of the attack on the woods and is investigating the reasons for the cutting of the trees which were also taken from the forest.Local county councillor Patrick McGowan said he is very annoyed by the incident considering the work which has gone into developing Drumboe Woods in recent months.“This is a shocking and senseless attack on what is a beautiful area which is enjoyed by so many people.Some of the many trees cut down during an attack in Drumboe Woods at the weekend.“We have a Tidy Towns meeting tomorrow night and we will discuss it but it’s just an attack on the whole community. “I would appeal to anybody who was in the woods in recent days and who may have seen people cutting down trees of acting suspiciously to contact the Gardai.“These are our woods and they are there for all of us to enjoy and something like this cannot be allowed to happen again,” he said.Shock as trees cut and stolen from scenic forest walk was last modified: August 28th, 2019 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:CoilltecutdonegalDrumboe Woodsstolentreestwin towns
Kokko Figueiredo connected on a two-run home run to give the Crabs their first lead of the night and landed a well-placed fly ball in left field to score one and give the home team the lead once again in the seventh inning, but it wouldn’t be enough as a pair of ninth inning runs on the part of the Solano Mudcats elevated the visitors to a late-game 7-6 win over the Humboldt Crabs, Tuesday night at the Arcata Ball Park.The loss snaps what was a seven-game winning streak for the Crabs and drops …

20 September 2010 Mercedes-Benz South Africa and the South African government are to set up a joint working group to help produce a competitive bid for production of the next Mercedes-Benz C-class model in the country. “If successful, the more than R2-billion investment would result in higher local content and in more than 2 000 new jobs, including high-quality jobs, at the firm’s East London plant,” the Department of Trade and Industry said in a statement last week. This followed a meeting in Pretoria on Thursday between Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies and Mercedes-Benz South Africa CEO Hansgeorg Niefer. The Department said it would work through the details of available government support to enable the company to produce a competitive bid against other Mercedes Benz production plants in other parts of the world. “Our discussion with Minister Davies was very positive,” Niefer told Daily Dispatch. “He has promised support and co-operation on the part of government through the Automotive Investment Scheme. We welcome this support in our effort to secure this contract for South Africa.” Mercedes-Benz SA, a wholly owned subsidiary of the global company Daimler AG, currently produces the existing C-class model at its East London, Eastern Cape plant, for the local market as well as for export to the United States. According to Engineering News, the new C-class is expected to be launched in 2014, and Daimler has yet to decide whether to manufacture the vehicle in China, the US and Germany alone, or whether to add South Africa as a fourth production location. Niefer told Daily Dispatch that Mercedes-Benz SA expected to hear the outcome of the bid by the end of the year. SAinfo reporter and BuaNews
Jordaan, who represented South Africa in 2009 at both the Women’s Nations Cup in Canada and Women’s Sevens World Cup in Dubai, refereed the match between Peru and Paraguay at the Confederacion Sudamericana de Rugby (Consur) Sevens at the Club Regatas do Flamengo in Rio de Janeiro on Sunday. “Marlize has grown so much in her career as a referee that we weren’t surprised when we were told of her appointment,” Watson said. At the Consur Sevens, Uruguay’s men and Brazil’s women claimed the final remaining spots at the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013, which will take place at Moscow’s iconic Luzhniki Stadium from 28 to 30 June. 27 February 2013 ‘Expecting big things’ The tournament served as a qualifier for the Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013, which take place in Russia in June. South Africa’s Marlize Jordaan made history when she became the first woman to referee in an international sevens rugby match for men in South America this past weekend. “Last week Marlize refereed the Varsity Cup Young Guns match between the under-20 teams of Kovsies and UP-Tuks, and was very good. In 2012, she also handled two matches in the Absa U19B Tournament with great aplomb. Bernd Gabbei, the referee development consultant for the International Rugby Board, said Jordaan’s appointment for the match between Peru and Paraguay was based on merit after a few superb performances in the women’s tournament, which was taking place at the same time. SAinfo reporter An achievement to celebrateAndre Watson, the South African Rugby Union’s general manager of referees, said Jordaan’s achievement was one to celebrate for the entire South African rugby fraternity. “We’re really expecting big things from her and are very proud of her achievement in South America.” Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Its classes are running at full capacity, with demand far outstripping what it is able to supply.ABOUT THE CHILDREN’S MONOLOGUESThe original Monologues played to a sold-out theatre and were covered by every major news outlet in the UK.The production highlighted to an international audience the challenges these children face and the power of creative storytelling to change attitudes and prejudice within developing communities.It was a unique event, in terms of offering both glamour and integrity.The proceeds funded a permanent arts centre in rural South Africa that now runs six workshops a week and serves hundreds of local children.The original event was staged at London’s The Old Vic and was put together by Danny Boyle, a founding trustee of Dramatic Need.
