With the festive season less than two days away, scores of vendors and agro-processors enjoyed a successful day at the second annual Christmas Market Day organised by the Guyana Marketing Corporation (GMC).Handmade ornaments on saleThe market day activities commenced from 06:00h to 12:00h on Saturday at D’Urban Park, Georgetown, and once again attracted a large crowd of intrigued shoppers.However, even though the stalls were buzzing with consumers looking to purchase local produce, traders are of the opinion that more needs to be done in terms of promoting the activity.Sherry Crandon, a representative of agro-processing business Becky’s Blessings told Guyana Times that promoting the activity would be one thing she would do in the future.Local farmer: Andrea Seechen“If there is one thing that I can improve about the market day, it’s probably networking. Because I’m sure a lot of persons didn’t know about today being market day while a lot of persons forget. So I think if they network it a little bit more social media, online on TV, more likely the week before so that more persons can know this is where we are going to be,” Crandon noted.Meanwhile, local craftswoman Nadia Lockhart expressed similar views when she spoke to this newspaper. “Maybe they can do a little bit advertising cause some folks say they didn’t know about it, is somebody just went home and inform them about it. But a little bit more advertising can be done to get more persons and in that way, persons who produce their own stuff like myself can also come out,” the craftswoman said.Nevertheless, when this publication took a stroll through the many stalls later in the day, persons were still taking advantage of the sales which included a wide range of fresh fruits, vegetables, agro-processed products, crafts and plants.Local farmer, Andrea Seechen, who transported her goods all the way from Upper Corentyne, Berbice, to Georgetown, posited that despite the late arrival, her produce was completely sold out.Same can be said for representative of Triple “A’s” catering, Aweena Alder as she described the early morning atmosphere at the market.
0Shares0000Firmino fired a sensational effort low into the bottom corner to gift Liverpool all three points after a thrilling clash. Photo/DAILY MAILLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Sep 18 – Roberto Firmino came off the bench to strike deep into stoppage time and hand Liverpool a deserved 3-2 win over Paris Saint-Germain at Anfield on Tuesday.Last season’s finalists showed the French champions have plenty of work to do if they are to mount a challenge for a first-ever Champions League title as they bounced back from blowing a 2-0 first-half lead. Daniel Sturridge and a James Milner penalty put the hosts in command before Thomas Meunier reduced PSG’s arrears.Having kept Kylian Mbappe and the world’s most expensive player Neymar quiet for almost the entire match, Liverpool seemed set to pay a heavy price for one slack pass by Mohamed Salah as Mbappe swept home seven minutes from time in front of a stunned Kop.But Firmino, who started on the bench due to an eye injury suffered against Tottenham on Saturday, had the final say as he twisted and turned before firing into the far corner to stretch Liverpool’s perfect start to the season to six games.Liverpool’s run to the final last season was characterised by fast starts that blew away Spartak Moscow, Manchester City and Roma at Anfield and buoyed by a perfect start to the Premier League season, the hosts put PSG under severe pressure from the off.Alphonse Areola has kept Gianluigi Buffon on the sidelines during the first few weeks of the 40-year-old’s PSG career and, with the Italian suspended for his red card in Juventus’ ontroversial exit to Real Madrid in the quarter-finals last season, started again between the sticks.The French international was busy early on as he saved from Virgil van Dijk, Milner and Sadio Mane inside the first 10 minutes.PSG have crumbled on their Champions League travels to Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid in the past two seasons and their ability to challenge for the competition was again questioned as they struggled to contain Liverpool’s greater speed and power in midfield.Up front, Firmino’s absence opened the door for Sturridge to make his first Champions League start for the club.The Englishman has been dogged by injury and lack of form during Klopp’s nearly three years in charge, but took his chance on the big stage by powering home a pinpoint curling cross from Andy Robertson to open the scoring on the half-hour mark.Six minutes later, PSG’s deficit was doubled when Juan Bernat tripped Georginio Wijnaldum inside the area and Milner slammed the resulting penalty into the bottom corner.However, the visitors were handed a lifeline through right-back Meunier, rather than one of their famed front three, as the Belgian skilfully readjusted to volley home Robertson’s miscued clearance.Klopp was annoyed at his side for having to survive a nervous finale in winning at Tottenham on Saturday after passing up a series of chances to put the game to bed.And it was looked like this time they would pay as Salah had a goal ruled out for a foul by Sturridge before the latter headed a glorious chance into the arms of Areola.Salah has struggled to match his stunning 44-goal form of last season in recent weeks and was substituted by Klopp moments after gifting PSG a route back into the game.His slack pass was intercepted and quickly fed into Neymar, with Van Dijk’s tackle on the Brazilian only rebounding into the path of Mbappe to fire home.Liverpool instantly went in search of a winner as Trent Alexander-Arnold’s deflected free-kick came back off the woodwork, and finally got their reward when Firmino powered home.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Anderlecht v Tottenham is live on talkSPORT at 6pm on Thursday 22 October.Following two tense legs, Tottenham lifted the UEFA Cup for the second time in their history when they saw off Anderlecht in the 1984 final.It was a third European trophy for the Lilywhites, who were the first British team to lift a piece of continental silverware (the 1963 Cup Winners’ Cup), and means they are still ahead of Arsenal in terms of UEFA tournaments won.Two 1-1 draws meant a penalty shoot-out would decide the encounter at White Hart Lane, with goalkeeper Tony Parks saving the decisive spot kick from Arnór Gudjohnsen.Spurs were without captain Steve Perryman, who was suspended while Glenn Hoddle and Ray Clemence were injured, but stand in skipper Graham Roberts claimed “there was no way” he was going to walk off the pitch without the trophy.“When we walked out that night, the supporters gave us that extra energy. It was a fantastic night,” he told tottenhamhotspur.com on the 30th anniversary of the win.And, playing on their home turf in Keith Burkinshaw, the manager’s final game in charge, it was all set for a fairytale finish having beaten the likes of Bayern and Feyenoord en route to the final. It was the first time Tottenham were victorious in Europe since winning the inaugural UEFA Cup in 1972.
So, it’s set to be all change at Old Trafford this summer as Jose Mourinho plots a return to the glory days. But what are his key priorities?Manchester United’s problems this season have been simply not scoring enough goals and being defensively weak, meaning they are having to rely on goalkeeper David de Gea to get them out of trouble.There are five key areas in which they must strengthen during the summer transfer window. They need a solid, reliable centre-back, an out-and-out winger, a defensive midfielder, a reliable right-back and a target man to partner Anthony Martial.Click the arrow above, right, to see who Mourinho should go for… 6 6 Five players Jose Mourinho should sign this summer – fans’ view – Click the arrows to see who Jose Mourinho should sign this summer Zlatan Ibrahimovic – Paris Saint-Germain striker – Ibrahimovics contract with PSG expired at the end of the season, and he has declined the offer of an extension. He has already worked with Jose Mourinho at Inter and is said to have a good relationship with him, and there are widespread reports this is already a done deal. And it would be a huge signing for United. He would be an excellent partner to Anthony Martial, helping the youngster with his experience and operating as a genuine target man, allowing the French ace to run in behind opposition defences. Ibrahimovic has nothing to prove, of course and although he would command huge wages, there would be no transfer fee to pay. And his happy knack of winning titles at every club he has played for would come in handy, too! 6 John Stones – Everton centre back – Jose Mourinho tried to sign the 21-year-old when he was at Chelsea, but Everton refused to accept a £30million bid for the highly-rated youngster. Stones would be a good partner for Chris Smalling having already had success alongside him for England. There have been question marks about his progress under Roberto Martinez this season, however, when he has had a tendency to make mistakes. You would suspect Mourinho would soon knock that out of him, though, but it would likely cost around £40m to persuade the Toffees to cash in. Kyle Walker – Tottenham Hotspur right back – Walker has had a great season for Spurs this year and he would provide pace and strength on the right flank. What he lacks defensively, he makes up for with his high work-rate and attacking threat. There are definite question marks about that area of the pitch for United, with Matteo Darmian regularly struggling with injury, and Antonio Valencia not fully convincing the doubters he is capable of performing in that position at the top level. The stumbling blocks to this deal are whether Mourinho feels the England man is defensively strong enough, with the Portuguese sure to build from the back, and whether Spurs, so long a selling club, would consider letting one of their prize assets go to a probable title rival. N’golo Kante – Leicester City midfielder – Kante has gone from playing in the second tier of French football to winning the Premier League title with Leicester. He was named on the shortlist for the PFA Player of the Year award, along with team-mates Jamie Vardy and Riyad Mahrez. Kante would be a huge signing for United and Mourinho as they lack class and work rate in this area of the pitch, with Michael Carrick and Bastian Schweinsteiger both well into their 30s. Kante offers youth, is in the prime of his career and with a £20million release clause in his contract, he will be a very attractive prospect for a number of potential suitors this summer. 6 6 Neymar Jr – Barcelona forward – Neymar is regarded as one of the best wingers in world football at the moment, if not the best. Mourinho was in charge of Real Madrid when Barcelona signed the Brazilian, so will have seen plenty of him up close. This would be a huge signing for Manchester United (and weve been here before, of course), as it would see a top class out-and-out winger join and allow them to play Anthony Martial up front in his best position. Neymar brings pace, high-class finishing, quick footwork and a tremendous work rate. The downside? He would cost around £80million. 6
1 Will Paul Pogba be Jose Mourinho’s fourth signing at Manchester United? Manchester United have a ‘genuine interest’ in France star Paul Pogba, but it is understood talks with Juventus are currently NOT on the table.United have been linked with a move for the 23-year-old midfielder ever since he emerged as one of the best young stars in European football following his free transfer from Old Trafford to Turin four years ago.Speculation linking Pogba with a world-record £100million return to Manchester has increased since new manager Jose Mourinho indicated the club were ready to focus full attention on a fourth and final summer transfer target.That has been widely assumed to mean the France and Juve star, and reports have now emerged claiming United have reached agreement with the player’s agent over pay.The rumours also suggest this now puts United in a position to finally lodge an official bid with Juve.But, while it is understood United are interested in the youngster, prospect of any deal is some way off.It is not thought any discussions have taken place with Juve – and the Italian giants are reportedly reluctant to sell.Pogba is contracted until 2019 and could be offered a new deal in Turin, although Real Madrid have also been linked with the Frenchman and also have the finances to test their resolve.United have already signed three players since Mourinho was appointed in May – Swedish striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Armenia playmaker Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Ivory Coast defender Eric Bailly.Could Pogba be the fouth?

The new €12M courthouse in Letterkenny is to hold its first sitting today.The building which is located at High Road, has four courtrooms, two more than the old building on Justice Walsh Road. Today’s court will consist of a “non-Garda day” which will be heard by district court Judge Paul Kelly.The building, built on the site of the town’s old swimming pool, will also be home to the court service staff offices.The building was constructed by BAM who will oversee the running of the courthouse.Established in 1958, BAM Ireland is the largest multinational construction business operating nationally with expertise and experience in the delivery of many of Ireland’s flagship infrastructural and building projects.There has been some controversy about the new building, most notably by the lack of public parking connected to the building.There will be just a total of 17 parking spaces at the building but that will be private parking for court staff.Although there is car-parking in and around the courthouse at Port Road, High Road and behind the older courthouse, some local public representatives say this is not enough.First cases to be heard today at Donegal’s new €12M courthouse was last modified: January 3rd, 2018 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:courtdonegalletterkennyNew
