FAI CUP: BONAGEE UNITED CRASH OUT – LETTERKENNY TIE POSTPONED

first_imgBonagee United goalkeeper Eugene Ferry, pictured with James McClean – could do nothing to stop his side crashing out of the FAI Intermediate Cup this afternoon.SOCCER: BONAGEE UNITED have crashed out of the FAI Intermediate Cup – after suffering a heavy defeat away to Killester United. Peter Moran’s side have enjoyed a fine campaign to date – and are joint-top of the USL.However, they knew the difficulty of the draw prior to this clash – and it proved every bit as difficult as was predicted. Killester United are on of the favourites to win this competition outright – and reached the FAI Senior Cup quarter-finals earlier this season.Bonagee started brightly and had a couple of good opportunities to take the lead – but it was Killester who opened the scoring – and once they did they never looked back.They were two up at the interval, and added two other goals in the opening twenty minutes of the second-half.Bonagee battled bravely to the end but were outclassed by a side with serious credentials and ambitions to win the competition. Letterkenny Rovers clash with Dunboyne AFC was postponed due to the adverse weather conditions in Co.Meath.Letterkenny were scheduled to face the Leinster Senior League side tomorrow afternoon – but the game has been cancelled due to a water-logged pitch.The game will now take place either next weekend – or the weekend after.Letterkenny thought the game would’ve been reversed as was the norm traditionally, however the rules have changed in recent seasons.  FAI CUP: BONAGEE UNITED CRASH OUT – LETTERKENNY TIE POSTPONED was last modified: November 28th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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)last_img read more

first_imgLETTERKENNY General Hospital’s Emergency Department has never been overcrowded, junior Minister Kathleen Lynch told the Dail today.Padraig MacLochlainn TD said the hospital was “in crisis” over the Christmas period and expressed his great surprise that the HSE believed it has operated “satisfactorily.”Ms Lynch said the new Emergency Department will be opened in June or July, as donegaldaily.com reported last week. Deputy MacLochlainn said the minister should speak to the unions at the hospital about the issue and asked for the figures given to her by the HSE to be released.It will also come as a surprise to the various members of staff who have contacted donegaldaily.com in recent weeks.At one stage more than 50 people were waiting for treatment on one evening – with patients on trolleys and wheelchairs.Speaking to Donegaldaily after hearing the news that the new wing will be open in June or July, a cautious Deputy MacLochlainn said he welcomed the news. “I am delighted the Minister appears to be giving a commitment but I would still have certain reservations.“I certainly don’t think we are over the line with it just yet,” he said.     YOU COULDN’T MAKE IT UP!
