Lifford businesses “left out of the loop” for lighting

BUSINESSES in Lifford are “feeling a bit left out of the loop” when it comes to lighting up the town centre at night. The Ennis Municipal District has installed festoon lights in the town as part of efforts to support outdoor dining and encouraging people to visit the town, however according to one local councillor parts of Ennis are “feeling forgotten about”. Councillor Mary Howard, speaking at a recent meeting of the Ennis Municipal District, called on the local authority to reconsider hanging festoon lighting in the Lifford area. “The businesses in that area would appreciate the lights being installed for the summer months,” she said. She said that Ennis is “looking so well” with the new lights adding, “The people in Lifford are feeling a bit left out of the loop.” She recalled how efforts were made a number of years ago to extend Christmas lighting into the Lifford area and questioned why this cannot be done again. “They …

Henchy still giving her all

She has been pulling on the county jersey for 16 years but Louise Henchy can count on one hand the number of times she has lined out in Cusack Park. The Ennis-based accountant, who has played soccer for Ireland at underage and senior level, can recall most of her games there, one of which dates back nearly 20 years. “I remember I played midfield against Carmel Bohannon [Fergus Rovers], a long, long time ago. We also played Donegal in a league final [2008]. I’ve probably played in Cusack Park three or four times,” the Banner Ladies club player recounted. Ideally, Henchy would like if female footballers had more access to the county grounds but she has accepted that is unlikely during her playing career. “It’s not great but to tell you the truth, I’m used to it. A lot of people ask do we ever train out in Caherlohan at the new [GAA] pitches? But I’ve only seen it from …

Mahoney hits a superb winner for Clare

Clare 3 Kilkenny 2 A goal worthy of any stage with just under five minutes remaining sealed Clare’s passage to the quarter finals of the inter league youths cup at Doora earlier today.

[doptg id=”95″] Mahoney’s winning goal was an outstanding effort as he blasted to the top corner of the net from outside the area. Taking off his jersey in the celebration which followed the strike led to a second yellow card and his dismissal which will have disappointed all involved. From an early stage Mahoney troubled the visitor’s defence and he put the home side into the lead after eighteen minutes with a lleft footed strike. This goal separated the sides at half time. Clare were rocked just …
