Jerome G. Korkoya, commanded the Chief Clerk of Election, Madam Antoinette B.

Korkoya ordered Madam Johnson.He said the mandate came after the Commission took administrative notice dated April 9, 2019 and April 29, 2019 through notifications from the Senate, and the House of Representatives, announcing vacancies caused by the deaths of Senator Geraldine Doe Sherif and Representative Adolph A. Lawrence, respectively.“Issuing the elections writs to the magistrates of Lower and Upper Montserrado County reminded them that the last day for nomination of aspirants by duly registered political parties, coalitions, alliances, or independent aspirants for the senatorial and Representative by-elections shall be May 18, 2019 at 5:00 o’clock p.m.,” a press statement from the NEC said.The issuance of the elections writs are in line with a mandate by the Board of Commissioners (BOC) through Cllr. Korkoya to inform the magistrates that this is pursuant to the notification letters received from the House of Representatives and the Senate informing the Commission of the vacancies within the two Houses.In his acceptance of the elections writs, Magistrate Vopea S. Gongloe promised that they would fully execute the mandate by conducting free, fair, credible and transparent representative by-election in district #15 of Montserrado County as well as the Senatorial by-election in the same county without fear or favor.Magistrate Gongloe said to ensure this, they will need all the necessary logistical, financial and moral support from the government through the NEC Board of Commissioners and other election stakeholders and partners.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

ATHLETIC: LETETRKENNY AC’S BOYCE WALKS TALL IN SPAIN

first_imgLetterkenny Athletic Club’s Olympian walker, Brendan Boyce, travelled to Jumilla in the Murcia region of south eastern Spain to compete in the Spanish 35K race walking championship on Sunday.Brendan’s long journey was rewarded with a 2nd place finish in a time of 2hr38mins13 secs. This time equates to walking 7 consecutive 5Ks, each in 22mins 35secs; his average pace was 4.31/Km or 7.16/mile, which is a phenomenal walking pace.Brendan was 2nd to European Champion, Miguel Angel Lopez and he matched Lopez’s pace for the first 10K. This race was the start of Brendan’s outdoor season and he was using it as part of his build up towards 50K in 3 weeks. With a plethora of spring road races imminent, LAC members used the weekend as an opportunity to get some training miles in. The senior cross country championship in Rostrevor, Co Down on Sunday signalled the end of the cross country season, and a very full road calendar now awaits runners. The women’s race in Co Down was won by Maria McCambridge, now of Dundrum South Dublin, but formerly of LAC.Garvan McCloskey is a man well known to most people in the Letterkenny area. Like LAC members Monica/Gerard McGranaghan, who were featured last week, Garvan is now doing his running well away from Aura, the Cathedral, Town Park, Newmills loop, Rashedoge, Pearse Road etc. Garvan is currently living in the Gunks mountains, in the Hudson Valley, more than 100KM from New York. He has excellent running areas, with hundreds of miles of rail and carriage trails, which are traffic free and very scenic. One thing Garvan misses about running back home is the banter he had with LAC runners; the sense of humour is different in America. Unusually for a runner in his 50s, Garvan is still recording PBs. He ran 2 Marathons last year and achieved a PB in Philadelphia; he also ran the Boston Marathon. His Philadelphia time (3.14.27) gave him the qualifying time to enter both the New York and Chicago Marathons, later this year. The events are close together, so Garvan intends doing Chicago, in October, as this is a race he has never done. Garvan speaks highly of the Mountain Trails summer series that he intends doing this year; he has won the over 50 Category in that event in each of the last 2 years. The standard is not as high as here and there is nothing like the post race hospitality enjoyed at Donegal races. He has made many good friends in New York, through running. Garvan proudly wears his black/amber LAC vest in America and is regularly engaged in conversation by people who are eager to discuss Donegal. There is not the same level of coaching available; people with the knowledge, expertise and experience of Teresa McDaid- and the other excellent coaches in Donegal- are not as freely available to turn to for help and advice on the various aspects of running such as training, racing, nutrition and injury prevention. Over the last few months, Garvan has been training in the gym, due to the extreme weather in New York. However, the worst of the weather is now over and Garvan is about to restart outdoor running and hopes to participate in some of the large number of 5Ks, which start in mid March.Best wishes go to Danny Mooney and coach Teresa McDaid for success at the weekend. Danny is running in the 1500m in the European Athletics Indoor Championships in Prague. He is timetabled to run at 11.50 on Saturday morning.  ATHLETIC: LETETRKENNY AC’S BOYCE WALKS TALL IN SPAIN was last modified: March 2nd, 2015 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)last_img read more

DONEGAL HEAD TO KERRY BUOYANT AFTER CHALLENGE GAME VICTORY OVER TRIBESMEN

first_imgRory Gallagher will be happy with how an experimental Donegal side played against Galway on Monday night.Rory Gallagher quickly got Sunday’s disappointing showing against Monaghan out of the system when an experimental Donegal side defeated Galway on Monday night.Donegal were utterly underwhelming at O’Donnell Park on Sunday afternoon and were caught cold by an ultra-defensive Monaghan side.With teams adopting defensive systems it wasn’t a game for the purist and many of 6,000 strong attendance were left feeling short changed after a dour affair. Monaghan prevailed and earned two precious league points and Donegal’s game versus Kerry now takes on added significance.However, Gallagher took a Donegal side to Galway on Monday evening and will be delighted with the performance of several of his players.Eoin McHugh, Darrach O’Connor, Ryan Malley, Colm McFadden, Martin McElhinney and Hugh McFadden all featured for Donegal.The game was the complete opposite of Sunday’s Allianz National League clash as a rampant Donegal notched up 3-17. Colm McFadden was particularly impressive and reminded Gallagher he still has plenty to offer at inter-county level.It gives Gallagher plenty of food for thought ahead of their long sojourn to Kerry this weekend.Some of the players that impressed in Monday’s clash will be hoping they can force their way into Gallagher’s plans on Sunday.DONEGAL HEAD TO KERRY BUOYANT AFTER CHALLENGE GAME VICTORY OVER TRIBESMEN was last modified: March 12th, 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) Tags:GAAnewsSportlast_img read more
