Both Donegal and Knock Airport have received welcomed cash injections.Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross TD today revealed that his Department is allocating €2.77 million in funding support for the four regional airports in Donegal, Ireland West Airport Knock, Kerry and Waterford.The grants have been welcomed by Deputy Pat The Cope Gallagher. Deputy Gallagher said “I have always maintained the case and pressurised the Government for support of regional airports since my re-election to Dail Eireann in the interests of regional development, connectivity and overall access to the regions.He said the grant of €320,046 was being made under the Regional Airports Programme 2015-2019, which supports these airports with both capital and operational grants for projects and activities in the areas of safety and security.“The grants announced today provide assistance towards the operational costs incurred by Donegal Airport and are in addition to capital grant funding announced earlier in 2016 and grant aided measures of safety and security investments at the airport.“The grants announced today are critically important towards the running of the airport and in addition to the provision of Public Service Obligation (PSO) air services on the Donegal/Dublin, which I continue to lobby for in order to sustain the airport in Donegal. “These supports are very important for airports such as Donegal and for the role that they play in promoting a level of international connectivity to support business, tourism and wider travel access from and to counties such as Donegal,” concluded Pat the Cope.Delight as Donegal and Knock Airports get cash injection was last modified: December 22nd, 2016 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:airportgrantsPat The Cope Gallagher
The voice on the tape, purported to be bin Laden, said he was directing his message to the American people after polls showed that “an overwhelming majority of you want the withdrawal of American troops from Iraq but (Bush) opposed that desire.” He said insurgents were winning the conflict in Iraq and warned that security measures in the West and the United States could not prevent attacks there. “The proof of that is the explosions you have seen in the capitals of European nations,” he said “The delay in similar operations happening in America has not been because of failure to break through your security measures. The operations are under preparation and you will see them in your homes the minute they are through (with preparations), with God’s permission.” The speaker did not spell out conditions for a truce in the excerpts aired by Al-Jazeera. “We do not mind offering you a long-term truce with fair conditions that we adhere to,” he said. “We are a nation that God has forbidden to lie and cheat. So both sides can enjoy security and stability under this truce so we can build Iraq and Afghanistan, which have been destroyed in this war. “There is no shame in this solution, which prevents the wasting of billions of dollars that have gone to those with influence and merchants of war in America,” he said. In an Arabic transcription of the entire tape on the Al-Jazeera Web site — but not aired — bin Laden makes an oblique reference to how to prevent new attacks on the United States, but does not specify if these are conditions for a truce. “If I were president, I would stop the attacks on the United States: First I would apologize to all the widows and orphans and those who were tortured. Then I would announce that American interference in the nations of the world has ended,” he said. The last audiotape purported to be from bin Laden was broadcast in December 2004 by Al-Jazeera. In that recording, he endorsed Abu-Musab al-Zarqawi as his deputy in Iraq and called for a boycott of Iraqi elections. He issued numerous tapes in 2003 and 2004, calling for Muslims to attack U.S. interests and threatening attacks against the United States. In an April 15, 2004, audiotape, he vowed revenge against the United States for Israel’s assassination of Hamas founder Sheik Ahmed Yassin — and at the same time offered a truce to European countries. Bin Laden appeared in a video released October 2004, just ahead of U.S. presidential elections, saying the United States can avoid another Sept. 11 attack if it stops threatening the security of Muslims. Since December 2004, bin Laden’s deputy in al-Qaida, al-Zawahri, has issued a number of video and audiotapes, including one claiming responsibility for the London attacks, which he said came after Europe rejected the terms of a truce al-Qaida had previously offered them. Al-Jazeera’s editor-in-chief Ahmed al-Sheik would not comment on when or where the latest tape was received. He said the full tape was 10 minutes long. The station aired excerpts with what it “considered newsworthy,” he said, but would not say what was on the remainder. Jeremy Bennie, a terrorism analyst for Jane’s Defense Weekly, said bin Laden appeared to be “playing the peacemaker, the more statesmanlike character” with his offer of a truce. “They want to promote the image that they can launch attacks if and when it suits them. That’s the message of a powerful organization, not a weakened one. They want us to believe they are in control,” he said. The mention of rebuilding Iraq and Afghanistan may be a recognition of divisions among the ranks of Islamic militants over the insurgency in Iraq by bin Laden’s ally, al-Zarqawi, who has come under criticism by some radicals for attacks on Iraqi civilians. “If it turns out to be him, and it’s not old stuff he’s done spliced together, the initial significance of this is that he’s still alive,” former White House antiterrorism chief Richard A. Clarke said. Beyond that, he told The Associated Press, “the only new element in his statement is that they are planning an attack soon on the United States. “Would he say that and risk being proved wrong, if he can’t pull it off in a month or so?” Clarke asked. Of the truce offer, which Clarke said bin Laden has made before, “I think it’s designed to make him look more reasonable in Arab and Muslim eyes. He’s a very sophisticated reader of world opinion and American opinion, and he obviously knows he can’t affect American thinking. He’s too reviled.” Intelligence authorities were examining why bin Laden — if in fact the voice on the tape is verified as his — would be speaking out after more than a year of letting his al-Zawahri serve as al-Qaida’s public face in statements and other communications. One counterterror official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitive nature of the tape, suggested it was an attempt to show “al-Qaida rank-and-file and the public at large that that he’s still around, given that he hasn’t been heard from in such a long time.”160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) — Al-Jazeera on Thursday aired an audiotape purportedly from Osama bin Laden, who says al-Qaida is making preparations for attacks in the United States but offering a truce “with fair conditions.” The tape’s release came days after a U.S. airstrike in Pakistan that was targeting bin Laden’s deputy, Ayman al-Zawahri, and reportedly killed four leading al-Qaida figures, including possibly al-Zawahri’s son-in-law. There was no mention of the attack on the segments that were broadcast. It was the first purported tape from the al-Qaida leader in more than a year — the longest period without a message since the Sept. 11 2001 suicide hijackings in the United States. Al-Jazeera said the tape was recorded in the Islamic month that corresponds with December.

He also refers indirectly to the July 7 bombings in London that killed 56 people and to poll numbers that showed a fall in Bush’s popularity, as occurred in late 2005. There was no immediate confirmation of the tape’s authenticity, although the voice resembled that of bin Laden’s in previous messages. U.S. counterterror officials said Thursday they have seen no specific or credible intelligence to indicate an upcoming al-Qaida attack on the country. The United States will not let up in the war on terror despite the threats on the tape, said White House press secretary Scott McClellan. “We do not negotiate with terrorists,” McClellan said. “We put them out of business.” While warning against downplaying the taped threat, officials at intelligence and law enforcement agencies said there has been no recent increase in “chatter” that can indicate that such an attack is imminent.

LOS ANGELES (AP) – A succession of grown men testified Tuesday that ex-priest Michael Wempe trapped them in a web of sexual molestation that began in their childhoods and continues to shadow their lives today. Pointing across the courtroom where the former Roman Catholic clergyman was seated at the counsel table, on trial for molestation, prosecutor Todd Hicks asked a witness identified only as Jay F. how he knew Wempe. “From a nightmare,” said the 39-year-old man. At one point, staring at Wempe, he said bitingly: “This guy is so sick.” He graphically outlined a pattern of molestation that involved fondling, masturbation and oral copulation that began when he was 13 and also ensnared two of his brothers. He said he felt “trapped and confused” during the two years that Wempe abused him. “As a Catholic, you’re taught the priest is the closest thing to God, someone you should respect,” he said. “Then you’re caught in this abuse and you don’t know what to do…. You think it will go away.” Jay F. said he never mentioned his ordeal to anyone until 10 years ago when he blurted it out in a confessional. But the priest who heard his confession did nothing, he said. He said he decided to come forward when he heard about the nationwide priest scandal and wishes now he had spoken up sooner because, “I could have saved other kids.” Another victim, identified as John C. testified he has had trouble remembering everything that happened to him because he was so young. He said he was molested between the ages of 5 and 7. “I started remembering things…,” he said. “It’s like trying to complete a puzzle and suddenly you have a box of pieces you didn’t know you had. I’m trying to get my life in order and my interest is in finding out what these pieces were.” The 27-year-old man, who works in San Francisco, also said: “These things are dictating most of my behavior to this point.” After his involvement with the priest, John C. said, he became an incorrigible student who was suspended and eventually expelled from high school. He said he kept a picture of the Unabomber in his high school locker and made bomb threats. Eventually, he said, he was arrested and wound up living in a group home. John C. said he is one of many of Wempe’s victims who have filed suit against the Archdiocese of Los Angeles but is less interested in the money than punishment for those involved. “If I could wail on the church wall for a couple of days, that would be better,” he said. Of his testimony, he said, “I don’t believe in confession in church. Hopefully this will help me get on.” Wempe’s attorney, Leonard Levine, who gently cross-examined the witnesses and voiced no objections to any of the prosecutor’s questions, has admitted that his client molested 13 boys in the 1970s and ’80s. But he maintains that Wempe is not guilty of molesting another boy in the 1990s, the case for which he is on trial. That young man was to testify later in the week.

QPR are bottom of the table and struggling – but they are favourites to win Monday’s clash with Aston Villa at Loftus Road.Rangers haven’t won in five Premier League matches and Harry Redknapp’s side remain 2/1 to finish bottom and 4/7 to be relegated.But despite the defeat, last Sunday’s showing against Liverpool was their strongest performance of the season so far and we reckon they can record just a second league success of the campaign.They are 7/5 to pick up all three points, with Villa 12/5 and the draw 11/5.Despite impressive wins against Liverpool and Stoke in the opening weeks of the season, Villa have gone off the boil and if QPR repeat the commitment they showed last time out, they will surely run out winners.Eduardo Vargas is the 5/1 favourite to open the scoring after netting twice last week and he is 7/1 to score back-to-back-braces and 9/5 to score at any time during the game.Vargas looks a big price at 14/1 to be named the man of the match, while Leroy Fer is likely to be a handful in midfield and is an attractive 8/1 with BetVictor.For all your weekend odds check out betvictor.com.Be lucky.CharlieFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook
