Massive 30-man fight in Georgia’s top league in Tbilissi

first_imgTuesday Oct 15, 2013 Massive 30-man fight in Georgia’s top league in Tbilissi This wild brawl took place in Georgia’s top league recently when Ilia Uni Jikebi and Lelo met in Tbilissi. It started with a little push and shove, but soon every player from both sides was involved, with it spilling over to the sidelines, where it’s possible others joined in.Ugly scenes and hopefully not something we see again any time soon. Amongst all the chaos, there was a big tackle though, so that’s kind of rugby, right? Who knows where the ball was though.The quality of the video isn’t amazing so if anyone knows of a better quality version, or has more info on the outcome or repercussions, get in touch and we’ll get it posted.

Test purchase leads to two-day closure and €500 fine for retailer

first_imgFacebook WhatsApp NewsLocal NewsTest purchase leads to two-day closure and €500 fine for retailerBy admin – March 15, 2012 673 Print Previous articleBloody Sunday 40 years on – ‘Carthaginians’ Next articleGood news on way for Kilmallock area roads admin A TOPAZ filling station in Limerick has been ordered to close its off-licence sales for a period of two days after a test purchase made by an underage girl on behalf of An Garda Siochana, revealed that the shop assistant never asked for ID. Ard Services, with a registered address at Deansgrange Road, Dublin, the company responsible for 113 Topaz sites nationwide, 108 of which are licenced to sell intoxicating liquor, was before the court answering a summons charge after gardai detected the underage purchase on January 21, 2011.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Evidence was given that Sgt McMahon, attached to Mayorstone Garda Station, arranged with an underage minor to purchase six bottles of Heineken at the Caherdavin depot of Topaz, on the Ennis Road.The youth was to meet at a pre- arranged venue and the purchase that was observed by Sergeant McMahon.The court heard that the female store assistant failed to follow the in-house or legal procedures in asking for identification to verify that the purchaser was of age.The defence counsel addressed Judge Aingeal Ni Chonduin, stating that she represented Ard Services and was entering a plea of guilty to the charges contrary to section 31 (2) and (3) of the Intoxicating liquor act 1988 as amended.Ard Services apologised to the court and were very regretful of the situation as it is the policy and practice of the company to look for relevant identification from purchasers of alcohol should they look underage.It was outlined that the company had previously, and since the incident, passed all test purchases and had a clean record.Evidence of the training procedures, as well as the “on screen” till operator prompts that appear during the sale of alcohol, were shown to the court.It was said that the company takes the matter of selling alcohol on its sites very seriously.Ard Services, through its Topaz outlets, is also a member of RRAI, the Responsible Retailers of Alcohol in Ireland, a group set up in 2009 to implement the RRAI voluntary Code of Practice on the display and sale of alcohol products in mixed trading premises.Judge Ni Chonduin heard that the company’s compliance manager was in court to offer evidence and to outline the operator’s normal code of conduct.Counsel for Ard Services said that they take “the sale of alcohol very seriously and are very well aware of the consequences of breaches of legislation”.She added that it is a dismissible offence for an employee to sell alcohol to a minor who is not of age. The court heard that the employee had left the company a few days afterwards.Evidence was also given that the site, and other Topaz sites, had passed subsequent test purchases.Judge Ni Chonduin heard that this was the company’s first offence before the courts for all of its sites nationwide, and added that she did take into account that the company was compliant and fully proactive in preventing the sale of alcohol to minors at any of its sites.Imposing the mandatory closure order for the sale of alcohol, of two days, at the Caherdavin petrol station, Judge Ni Chonduin warned that a second offence would have a mandatory closure order of seven to 30 days, and that would have an effect nationwide.Due to the early plea and the subsequent and normal measures that the company enacts at it’s mixed retail sites, the maximum fine of €3,000 was not imposed and Ard Services was fined €500 and given 30 days to pay.center_img Advertisement Twitter Linkedin Emaillast_img read more

Fathers stranded as women take kids

She worked as a staff journalist with the Irish Press and Evening Press before moving to Clare. She has worked as a freelance for all of the national newspaper titles and a staff journalist in Limerick, helping to launch the Limerick edition of The Evening Echo. Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. MIGRANT mothers who are returning to their own countries because of the recession and Irish women who are emigrating to find work are leaving the fathers of their children without any say in where the children live or whether they will ever see them again.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Limerick family law solicitor, Verena Tarpey, says she is seeing more men desperate to have access to their children or even to stop them being taken to live somewhere else.“But fathers who are not married to the children’s mother have no rights unless they have officially been declared guardians,” she said.Ms Tarpey runs a busy clinic in Limerick city and has had to tell fathers they “don’t have a leg to stand on”.“I have seen three cases like this in the last month. Because of changing financial circumstances, a lot of women who came here to work during the boom are going back. Equally, Irish women who are being forced to emigrate can take the children with them. The father can do nothing about it”.The Limerick organisation ‘Families’ confirmed that the problem is one which they have also encountered.Joe Wallace, chairman of the group, said that fathers “don’t really have any rights, even those who are legally guardians. It creates a huge problem. If the mother wants to leave the country, either for work or for a holiday, the father has no way of knowing if she will come back.“The only thing he can do is get a court order preventing her from taking the children out of the country and that very much depends on the judge at the time”.Mr Wallace said that legislation concerning unmarried fathers “has been introduced piecemeal over the years but has never really been copper fastened”.This entry was posted in News by Bernie English.

Corbett murder trial told of Tom’s dislike for Jason

first_imgTwitter No vaccines in Limerick yet Murder accused Thomas Martens disliked Jason Corbett – Picture Scott Muthersbaugh Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up NewsCorbett murder trial told of Tom’s dislike for JasonBy Staff Reporter – August 2, 2017 1646 Email Print Brother of slain Jason Corbett writes to US President expressing “dismay” at DA’s plea bargain offer to killers THOMAS Martens hated Jason Corbett, the murder trial of the US father and daughter has been told as the pair deny unlawfully killing the Limerick man in 2015.That was the evidence of a former colleague when she spoke of conversation she had with the retired FBI agent in 2015.Molly Martens and Thomas deny the second degree murder of Jason Corbett (39) on August 2, 2015 as the trial in Lexington hears its second week of gruesome evidence.When jurors at the trial were shown images of the death scene at Jason Corbett’s house in North Carolina some sqeemed while another got sick into a bin.That was the opener for a week of evidence that has described the death of the Limerick man in August 2015 where his second wife and father-in-law both deny unlawfully killing the 39-year-old father of two.During the selection process, potential jurors were told of the gory pictures they would be shown. and for the thrid week, the Lexington court house has been shown and told of a harrowing scene and violent scene.More than a dozen blows to his head, skull fragments, inconsistent blood spatters, shielding Jason’s children from the scene and gruesome patholgy reports have all been outlined in the State Prosecution case who say that Molly and her retired FBI agent father used excessive force to slay the Limerick man.They both deny second degree murder charges in connection with the death of Jason on August 2, 2015, at his home in Wallburg, North Carolina. They have claimed self defence. Molly said that Jason was trying to strangle her, but the court was told that the former model did not have any injuries. Neither did her 66-year-old father. Jason’s naked body was found unresponsive in his bedroom where he had seemed to suffer post mortem injuries in a blow to the head.Investigating police said that they did not pursue these claims but the defence entered a picture of Mr Corbett’s hand with one starnd of hair in it. This was not forensically analysed.Last week, the jury was shown a Louisville Slugger aluminium baseball bat and cement paver by the prosecuting officer. Clothing, with DNA evidence of blood, and interior pictures of the house as well as ones of Ms Martens outside were also shown to the court.  One Tuesday, evidence was given of blood spatters on the walls of Jason’s house.Expert witness and analyst Stuart James outlined that Jason Corbett’s bloodied head hit the wall in a decending manner as a 24 inch blood stain was present in the bdroom.He also noted indentations on the wall as well as blood spatters on a hoover as well as on the walls from Jason’s last breaths.In other evidence, a former colleague of Tom Martens told the trial that it was common knowledge that Molly’s father had a dislike for Jason.Follwoing legal arguement, Joann Lowry, who worked with him at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Knoxville, Tennessee, gave evidence of a conversation she had with Tom Martens where he allegedly said “That son-in-law, I hate him.”She added that Tom Martens said he wasn’t fond of Jason or the 2011 Irish wedding guests.Ms Lowry believed it was “common knowledge” that Mr Martens disliked Jason Corbett, as the judge urged this evidence was only relevant to the retired FBI agent and not Molly. The trial continues and is expected to hear from Jason’s sister Tracey Lynch.See more news here.

First documentation of leopard seal predation of South Georgia pintail duck

first_imgLeopard seals are regular winter visitors to Bird Island, South Georgia, where they mostly prey on fur seals and penguins, and to a lesser extent on Antarctic krill and fish. Leopard seals can exploit many different species, but there are no records of predation on flying shorebirds in the wild. On 4 October 2008, an individually identified juvenile leopard seal female was observed killing and eating a South Georgia Pintail duck. It also preyed on Antarctic fur seals and gentoo and macaroni penguins during its 2-month temporary residency around the island. The varied diet of this seal exemplifies the generalist prey utilization typical of its species. Long-term diet studies at Bird Island and the published record suggest that predation on ducks is a rather exceptional finding; individual ducks are more likely to escape leopard seal attacks than penguins and provide a far less substantial ration. This note documents the first observation of this species of duck in the diet of leopard seals.last_img read more
