Premier League round-up: Jamie Vardy double downs Liverpool, Arsenal draw and Manchester United win

first_img1 Jamie Vardy Leicester 2-0 Liverpool A Jamie Vardy-inspired Leicester continued to top the Premier League table after a convincing win over Liverpool at the King Power Stadium.After an exciting, attacking, end-to-end first half which provided no goals, Vardy made up for it with a fantastic hit on the hour mark, in front of England boss Roy Hodgson.Leicester punted the ball over the top for the England man to chase and Vardy waited for it to bounce once before smashing a looping volley over Simon Mignolet and into the top corner.And Vardy doubled the lead ten minutes later with a real poacher’s finish after Shinji Okazaki’s blocked shot fell into his path and he lashed the ball home with his left foot.Norwich 0-3 TottenhamTottenham boosted their top four hopes further with a 3-0 victory at Norwich.Mauricio Pochettino’s men go third and above local rivals Arsenal on goal difference.  Dele Alli put the visitors ahead inside two minutes when Christian Eriksen’s shot was parried by Canaries goalkeeper Declan Rudd and the England youngster was there to tap home from close range. Alli was all set to net another when he followed up Harry Kane’s shot, before he was fouled by Sebastian Bassong.Kane coolly converted the resulting spot-kick to double Spurs’ lead after half an hour. The England marksman doubled his tally and sealed the win in the final minute as Eriksen won possession and gave it to the England striker to fire home.Manchester United 3-0 StokeManchester United returned to their entertaining ways at Old Trafford as they beat Stoke 3-0.Louis van Gaal’s men have struggled to score at home this season but they were two up at half-time, with thanks to Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial.Lingard put the home side 1-0 up with just 14 minutes on the clock as he headed home Cameron Borthwick-Jackson’s low cross.Martial looked dangerous and lively and he added a second with a superb curling effort to beat Jack Butland.Wayne Rooney had a goal harshly disallowed in the second half as he shoulder barged Glen Johnson before finishing well and the foul was awarded.The Manchester United and England captain was soon on the score sheet though, tapping home a good team goal for his seventh goal in as many games.West Ham 2-0 Aston VillaAfter a miserable January transfer window, Aston Villa kicked off February in the Premier League with a 2-0 defeat at West Ham.Remi Garde failed to add any additions to the ranks at Villa Park and the French boss is reportedly considering his position. This match will not help the cause and neither did Jordan Ayew, who was sent off early in the game, the striker clearly elbowing Aaron Cresswell.Michail Antonio headed the home side into the lead early in the second half before Cheikhou Kouyate fired high into the roof of the net with minutes remaining.The Villans remain rooted to the bottom, six points behind 19th-placed Sunderland.Sunderland 0-1 Manchester CityManchester City held off a strong second-half performance by Sunderland to leave the Stadium of Light 1-0 winners.Just a day after it was announced that Pep Guardiola will be replacing Manuel Pellegrini in the summer, the Citizens kept their cool as they stay three points behind leaders Leicester.City have slipped up against Sunderland in previous years but Sergio Ageuro soon but any nerves on ice as he put the Black Cats in front with a neat finish. With 16 minutes on the clock, the Argentinian controlled Jesus Navas’ cross in the box and, with the outside of his boot, he finished across goal. New boy Lamine Kone nearly drew the home side level as he headed past the post and Joe Hart made a stunning save to deny Jermain Defoe before the interval.Sam Allardyce’s men put on an impressive show in the second half but they could not find an opening.Crystal Palace 1-2 BournemouthBournemouth moved seven points clear of the relegation zone with a 2-1 victory at Crystal Palace.Scott Dann put the Eagles ahead with a neat finish before Marc Pugh, who scored in the FA Cup at the weekend, drew the Cherries level just seven minutes later.January addition Benik Afobe – from Wolves – scored the all important goal shortly before the hour, heading home after Wayne Hennessey had parried.West Brom 1-1 SwanseaWest Brom scored late on to rescue a point at home to Swansea City.Gylfi Sigurdsson finished well at the far post after 64 minutes and it looked like Francesco Guidolin’s men were heading for back-to-back victories before the Baggies’ late equaliser.  With two minutes of added time played, Salomon Rondon managed to divert the ball home following a corner.The point leaves Tony Pulis’ side 13th, while Swansea are 16th.Arsenal 0-0 SouthamptonArsenal were booed off at the Emirates after failing to break down a stubborn Southampton side.Olivier Giroud had a number of efforts on the Saints goal but Fraser Forster was brilliant on the night.His best moment came when Mesut Ozil poked a toe at Giroud’s knockdown header but the Englishman reacted fantastically to keep the Gunners at bay.The result means Arsene Wenger’s men drop to fourth in the table, behind rivals Tottenham and only five points ahead of Manchester United in fifth.Results in fullArsenal 0-0 SouthamptonLeicester City 2-0 LiverpoolNorwich 0-3 TottenhamSunderland 0-1 Manchester City West Ham 2-0 Aston VillaCrystal Palace 1-2 BournemouthManchester United 3-0 StokeWest Brom 1-1 Swansealast_img read more

WOW! DOLPHIN POD OFF DONEGAL COAST….WHERE COUNCIL WANTS TO PUT SEWAGE PIPE!

first_imgTHIS was the incredible scene on Sunday evening as a pod of dolphins put on a spectacular display off the north Donegal coast.The mammals bounced in and out of the water for hours…much to the delight of locals and tourists alike on the coastline between Moville and Greencastle at Carnagarve beach.Tourists from Germany, Italy, France and the North got their cameras out to make sure they got a snap of the wonderful site. Ironically the area where the dolphins have been playfully dancing through the waters is in the exact same spot where Donegal County Council wants to put a sewage outflow pipe.The council has spent €5M over the past 20 years on Ireland’s longest-running planning dispute…and it still hasn’t been sorted.WOW!

HARPS EXPRESS ANNOYANCE AT HANDLING OF FAI CUP QUARTER-FINAL TIE

first_imgFinn Harps FC have expressed their disappointment at the handling of the FAI cup quarter-final clash with non-league side Avondale United next weekend.Harps have NOT received any official confirmation regarding when the fixture will take place, despite the game being scheduled to be played next weekend.It’s now believed that the game will be played next Sunday afternoon at 2pm in Avondale. Avondale FC tweeted the details of their fixture on their official Twitter account earlier today.However, Harps have still not received any official confirmation on when the game will take place.Logistically the fixture is already challenging for Harps, and with the uncertainty over what day the game will actually be played it has meant the club has been unable to make any travel preparations.If the game as expected takes place next Sunday afternoon as Avondale announced on Twitter, then Harps will have to travel to Cork on Saturday and stay overnight. But with no official confirmation announced Harps have been unable to make arrangements for the crucial clash with the FAI Intermediate Cup champions.A club spokesman said, “It’s a farcical situation and it should have been resolved earlier than this.“We’ve been unable to make any arrangements for the fixture, and it’s just not good enough.“It’s disappointed that Avondale United feel confident enough to announce details of the fixture on their Twitter account, yet we still haven’t received any confirmation.Harps are currently on their way back from Cork this evening after narrowly losing to Cobh Ramblers 1-0. A 31st minute strike from Rob Waters was the difference between the sides, and back-to-back defeats have ended Harps promotion hopes.But with a cup semi-final up for grabs, there’s still plenty to play for the season and the prospect of a cup semi-final has Harps fans dreaming of a cup final at the Aviva in November.However, Avondale will provide stiff opposition and will be no pushovers when the two sides clash next Sunday, or Saturday or maybe Friday at Turner’s Cross.They’ll decide soon hopefully…..

DONEGAL’S 150 FIREFIGHTERS TO PROMOTE FIRE SAFETY WEEK

first_imgNational Fire Safety Week takes place next week between October 5 and 12 and the theme this year is ‘Smoking at home can cause fatal fires’.National Fire Safety Week has its roots in the Great Chicago Fire, which occurred on October 8, 1871. The former American President, Calvin Coolidge, proclaimed the first National Fire Prevention Week in 1925 in memory of those who perished in that Fire.Assistant Donegal fire chief Glenn Hamilton.Since then, in early October, it has been observed each year in countries around the world.144 years on, the message regarding fire prevention and fire safety is as relevant today as it ever was. The theme for the 2015 Fire Safety Week is aimed at preventing fires caused by smoking in the home. Many fires start when cigarettes are left in ashtrays, when hot ashes/smouldering butts are dumped into the rubbish bin, or when someone falls asleep while smoking. The tragedy is that these fires were all preventable.Glenn Hamilton, A/ Senior Assistant Chief Fire Officer based at the Letterkenny Fire Station, is determined fire safety is something we all have to take seriously“As well as fighting fires and helping in emergency situations, the Fire Service is also involved in promoting fire safety awareness and educating the general public to be aware of the risk of fire. Fire is a societal risk and we are endeavouring to improve fire safety culture through various annual safety campaigns”Glenn, who comes from Ramelton, has worked in the fire service for 12 years and is a qualified Fire Safety Engineer. “Our aim is to prevent the outbreak of fire, and in doing so protect life and consequential damage to property and the environment. We also work at regulating fire safety in public building to ensure minimum fire safety standards are being met,” he said.Glenn reveals that the county’s 150 fire fighters who make up the 16 brigades will be very busy promoting fire safety throughout Fire Safety Week.“The programme of activities for this year’s Fire Safety Week throughout Donegal includes the erection of fire safety signs at each station; a presentation on fire safety to local communities; bringing fire brigades to a public location to distribute leaflets and engage with the public in passing on the fire safety message or an open night within the station; a fire safety poster competition for primary school children with the prize for the winner being a visit to the local fire station for their class as well as a fire safety presentation and fire extinguisher demonstration on Arranmore Island involving the local crew.”He added they wanted everyone to play their part during National Fire Safety Week by checking on elderly neighbours and relatives.People could also check out more fire safety information at http://www.donegalcoco.ie/services/fireservice/firesafetyathome/ and find out how you can help to prevent and detect fires in your home. It could save your life one day!
