With no time to take the call, the councillor hung up and went about his normal business.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Minutes later, however, he was left feeling totally flummoxed when he got a text message from O2 informing him that he had overspent by a sum of €10 over on his monthly phone plan.“I thought I was charged the €10 for the incoming call and I went totally ballistic. When I got home I contacted O2 online through their live chat and received the full details,” Cllr Long explains.“I was then even more horrified to learn that because I went through 11811 I had been charged €2.99 for a local call to my solicitor. In total it cost me €10 euro for three local calls. This in my opinion is a total rip-off,” he claimed.Cllr Long is now vowing never to use the 11811 directory enquiries service again.“If I had made the call at home on a landline it would have only cost 22 cent for three minutes. These hidden charges need to be highlighted and I’ll be contacting the Minister in relation to this,” Cllr Long concluded.An O2 spokesperson explained that calls to Eircom’s 11811 and other directory enquiry services are charged as premium rate services. He also advised customers to check the rates before using any of these services.“Calls to 11811 cost up to €2.30 per minute depending on which price plan the customer is on. Should the customer ask to be connected to a number there is an additional call set up charge of up to €2.30 as well as the per minute charge depending on how long the call lasts. The costs of premium rate services are available at,” said a spokesperson.

first_imgThe Mariners introduced new center fielder Mallex Smith to the media Thursday and someone asked Smith what he was most excited about in going to Seattle.”I’m going to enjoy fans in the stands,” a smiling Smith joked. “So that’ll be, that’s a big one for me. I’m gonna be excited about that. I’m looking forward to seeing those seats full.” It was a light-hearted jab at his former team, the Rays. Smith, who was acquired from Tampa Bay in a five-player trade in November, spent two seasons playing in front of cavernous stretches of empty seats in Tropicana Field. The Rays ranked last in the majors in attendance and were 29th of 30 teams last season, averaging 14,964 fans during Mallex’s time there.The Mariners, who ranked 14th in MLB attendance last year, averaged almost twice that many fans (28,388). Related News MLB hot stove: Tigers’ Nicholas Castellanos prefers to be traded before spring training, agent says Smith was in a jovial mood during the media conference, which also introduced new Mariners pitcher Justus Sheffield and shortstop J.P. Crawford. It’s actually Smith’s second stint with the team, although his first stint almost deserves an asterisk; Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto acquired him from the Braves in January 2017, but traded him 77 hours later to the Rays as part of the deal that brought Drew Smyly to Seattle.“Initial thought: Jerry’s gonna flip me again,” Smith joked. “I’ll actually get to suit up as a Mariner hopefully this time. Jerry, don’t do it again, please. But overall just excited about the obstacles that lay ahead. I know we haven’t been to the playoffs in a long time. So I’m excited about actually helping us get into the playoffs and changing the culture, getting to meet my new teammates, and having fun on the baseball field.” The speedy 25-year-old center fielder is a rising star. He’s not a power guy (two home runs in 480 at-bats in Tampa Bay) but does everything else well. He covers a lot of ground in center, is a base-stealing threat (40 steals last year) and makes contact. He slashed .296/.367/.406 last season.last_img read more

first_imgToulouse, France | AFP |Gareth Bale scored in his third straight game at Euro 2016 to guide Wales to a 3-0 win over Russia and then revelled at getting ahead of rivals England to top their group.England could only manage a frustrating goalless draw against Slovakia and dropped to second place in Group B.Aaron Ramsey and Neil Taylor also scored in Wales’ easy win in Toulouse against a limp Russian side whose campaign has been tainted by their roughhouse fans.In the last 16, Wales will play one of the four best third-placed finishers at the Parc des Princes in Paris on Saturday.Bale said it had probably been his best match with Wales, who are appearing in their first European Championship finals.“The performance was probably the best I’ve been involved in,” he said.“We started very well, we didn’t feel too nervous at the start and were very confident,” said Bale.“To top the group, it is a dream for all of us, we said we didn’t want to just make up the numbers and we can’t do more than we have.”Coleman said the Euro 2016 should brace for a lot more from his side.“I said before that there’s more to come for this group.“Even after this tournament is over, this group are on the way to something else. I’m just glad me and the staff are here with them. We have no fear. And after playing like that, why should we?” Coleman said.England must now take on the runners-up of Group F in Nice next Monday. Depending on Group F’s final results on Wednesday it could throw up a clash against Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal. Slutsky outWales came into the competition bursting with confidence. Coleman has inspired an underacheiving group to support Bale as he tears through opposing defences. After two free-kick goals against Slovakia and England, the Real Madrid forward did it again against Russia.Arsenal’s Ramsey put the ball behind the ineffective Russian defence to Bale who pushed the ball past goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev.The game in Toulouse started with drama in the stadium when police arrested Russian far-right football fan leader Alexander Shprygin who had sneaked back into the country two days after being expelled over fan violence.The rot started on the field in the 11th minute.A brilliant Joe Allen ball through the middle set up Ramsey and the peroxide blonde-haired midfielder confidently lifted the ball over Akinfeev.Russia manager Leonid Slutsky spend much of the match grabbing at his hair in frustration. Wales gave him plenty of reason. Slutsky said after that another manager would have to be in place when Russia host the 2018 World Cup.On 20 minutes, Bale wove through the Russian defence and fed the ball to Taylor, whose last goal was in 2010.Left free on the left-hand side of the penalty area with only Akinfeev to beat, his first shot hit the goalkeeper but he made no mistake with the second.England frustrationEngland fans suffered another night of frustration after seeing their side dominate but held to a 1-1 draw by Slovakia in Marseille.With Prince William among the fans watching from the stands, manager Roy Hodgson made six changes to the team, starting strikers Jamie Vardy and Daniel Sturridge, who came on to score in the 2-1 win over Wales, and leaving skipper Wayne Rooney among the replacements.Vardy squandered two clear chances of England’s nine first-half attempts on goal to Slovakia’s single effort.He fired over early on, then had his shot blocked by goalkeeper Matus Kozacik in a one-on-one after winning a sprint against Slovakia captain Martin Skrtel.Only a fine tackle from right-back Peter Pekarik denied Sturridge at the near post in the opening 10 minutes. And Adam Lallana was denied by Kozacik’s reflex save with half an hour gone.A mix-up between centre-back Chris Smalling and goalkeeper Joe Hart allowed Slovakia winger Robert Mak a half-chance.But only the slightest of deflections off Kozacik’s shoulder blocked Nathan Clyne’s shot.There was a big cheer from England fans when Rooney came on for Jack Wilshire with 56 minutes gone. He was a constant menace but the pressure came to nothing.“I’m pretty sure that sooner or later we’re going to make somebody, pay because if we keep dominating and creating chances like that we’re going to score goals one day,” said Hodgson.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
