first_imgIT’S D-DAY in the biggest GAA boundary dispute in Co Donegal – as the County Committee meets tonight to decide whether or not to split Letterkenny.At the September meeting, Letterkenny Gaels reiterated their call to have the parish of Aughaninshin part of the town declared as their club’s catchment area.That would have left St Eunan’s with Conwal and Leck part of the town only. However St Eunan’s GAA club say this is a breach of an agreement reached when the Gaels club was founded.The matter is to be voted on tonight after delegates in September said they wanted to discuss it at their clubs before voting on it.The result could have wider implications for other boundary disputes in the county.An independent report by former GAA chair Peter Quinn opposed a parish split in Letterkenny. Here’s our previous report on that:https://www.donegaldaily.com/2011/10/09/gaa-boundary-dispute-revealed-former-gaa-president-opposed-splitting-letterkenny/© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedFollow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldaily Sell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comD-DAY IN GAA BOUNDARY DISPUTE was last modified: November 7th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:BOUNDARY DISPUTEGAALetterkenny GaelsSt Eunanslast_img read more

After being sacked as captain by his Pune based franchise – Rising Pune Supergiant – Dhoni the player may be feeling the heat. (Dhoni a champion ODI player, not too sure if he’s a good T20 cricketer: Sourav Ganguly to India Today)Particularly with two young keeper-batsmen Rishab Pant and Sanju Samson finding success while performing like the fearless Dhoni of old.Can MS Dhoni turn things around like he did in one day cricket? We posed this question to Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee. (MS Dhoni sacked as Pune IPL captain, Steve Smith new skipper)Brett spoke to India Today at the launch of his new cricket venture ‘Bowling Masters’. Excerpts.Q. One of the areas of interests this season was always going to be how MS Dhoni would fare after he was dropped as skipper. Do you agree he would now be feeling the heat after three failures in a row?A. Yes. But we know how good Dhoni is. We wish him well. We know he is a wonderful character and how good he is for the game. I hope he can get a big one in the next game. (MS Dhoni-Kevin Pietersen banter on live television draws laughter)Q. Does the pressure not add up when you have two young keeper batsmen in Rishab Pant and Sanju Samson scoring freely as they have been? When you know there are youngsters waiting in the wings..advertisementA. That’s good. It’s healthy when you have young guys pushing you. I know when I was playing for Australia and there were young guys coming through bowling 140’s and you know your spot is never guaranteed. But that makes you hungry and train harder. (IPL 2017: Mahendra Singh Dhoni shows off his dancing skills, Ben Stokes watches on)Q. You now wear the analyst’ hat. How would you want MS Dhoni to go about his business in the future?A. I think MS Dhoni should try and play his natural game. I am not going to sit here and say this is how he should bat because he has been a wonderful player batsman and captain. Just hope he can play his natural game.Q. Don’t know if you got time to see Virat Kohli’s latest fitness video. His comeback seems to be upon us. That’s good news not just for his team but also the tournament..A. You want to watch the best play. It’s sad when someone is injured. I wish Kohli well. It was unfortunate when Steve Smith could not turn up on the park the other day. You want these guys to play. Kohli is a mega star. One of the world’s best.Q. Speaking of Steve Smith, given the way he is going, do you think he can go on and have the kind of IPL season Virat last had? Can he take his test form forward?A. Steve Smith is in the form of his life. He outscoring Kohli was incredible during the test series. We know what Kohli can do and he will be out there to rectify that but Steve Smith keeps getting better and better. He has now got what some 20 Test hundreds? It’s incredible.Also Watch:last_img read more
