INISHOWEN COMES TO GROUNDBREAKING AGREEMENT ON WATER METERS

first_imgThe historic meting and agreement on water meters in Inishowen is agreed.An agreement between MBC Builders (Gildea), Ballybofey and Inishowen groups opposed to water meters has been reached following a groundbreaking meeting.The meeting came about as a result of John Gildea, MBC Builders, recently contacting James Quigley, a local anti water charge campaigner from Buncrana.MBC Builders is one of two subcontractors contracted by GMC Sierra Ltd to install meter ready boundary boxes in place of old water stopcocks in the area.GMC Sierra Ltd have the main contract from Irish Water to install water meters throughout the north/north west of Ireland from Mayo to Donegal.At the meeting John Gildea of MBC Builders agreed that no work will be carried out on properties in Inishowen which have a sign up, indicating that they do not want a meter.The Inishowen groups agreed that they will not oppose MBC Builders working on properties which don’t have a sign up. The agreement is subject to the following conditions;1 MBC Builders will not work on properties who have a sign up indicating that they do not want a water meter installed..2 MBC Builders personnel will not try to coax or by any mean persuade any residents who does not want a meter or who has a sign up indicating so, to change their minds .3 MBC Builders will notify an anti water charge campaigner at least the night before work starts in any particular area.4 All work will be carried out within socially accepted times 7.30am-7.30pm Mon-Fri and 8am to 1pm Sat.James Quigley emphasised that this agreement is between us and MBC Builders. It is all about ‘signs’ on properties whose owners do not want a meter. If people have a sign up they will not get a meter or boundary box. There are some complicated technical issues in respect of work carried out by sub contractors and that carried out by GMC Sierra Ltd. We will be clarifying these issues later in our web page, the media and public meetings. We will also clarify other important issues that came up including the possibility that another contractor may come in after MBC Builders and finish the job or that this agreement paves the way for contractors to complete their job in Inishowen.For some time now campaign groups in the area have been calling for a sensible approach such as this to the water meter controversy.Mr Quigley said “We have repeatedly contacted Irish Water, GMC Sierra and An Garda Siochána to try to set up such an agreement. As far back as February we had a very successful public meeting in Buncrana where campaigners from Moneymore, Drogheda gave a talk on their successful agreement between themselves and contractors. I believe everyone in the packed audience that night were in agreement that we should go down this route.“I am glad we persisted and I am pleased that John Gildea of MBC Builders finally sees that an agreement such as this is the sensible way forward. This is an agreement that satisfies the needs of both sides. It is based on mutual trust and has already been proven in Moneymore and Cork and other parts Donegal that it can be a civilised solution to a difficult problem. All protest groups and Inishowen people should now get behind this new dispensation, give it a fair chance and demonstrate to one and all what can be achieved by reasoned negotiation.”INISHOWEN COMES TO GROUNDBREAKING AGREEMENT ON WATER METERS was last modified: July 18th, 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) Tags:donegalInishowenMBC Builderswater meterslast_img read more

first_imgD'Angelo Russell swings golf club and misses horribly.D’Angelo Russell GolfOhio State point guard D’Angelo Russell is a likely top-three pick in next month’s NBA Draft. The freshman floor general is incredibly gifted on the basketball court, but his golf game could definitely use some work.Maryland guard and NBA hopeful Dez Wells captured footage of Russell attempting to drive a golf ball this evening, and it was not pretty. Wells recorded two Russell tries; the first one was a whiff, and the second wasn’t much better.Don’t worry, D’Angelo, you’re young.

Brighton v Derby 745pm SKY

first_imgRUNNING RETURN (MAY): PROFIT 9.75 POINTSRUNNING RETURN (YEAR): LOSS 104.95 POINTSWhat’s your view? CALL STAR SPORTS 08000 521 321 They say the Championship playoff final is the biggest game in English football, so it follows the playoff semi-final is also a high pressure affair.The Amex Stadium hosts the first semi tonight between Brighton and Derby (7.45pm LIVE SKY).Brighton came up short against arch rivals Crystal Palace last season and get an unexpected second bite at the lucrative Premier League cherry this season after a last gasp goal at the weekend sealed their place in the playoffs at the expense of Reading who thought they had done enough and indeed their supporters were already on the pitch celebrating Derby have had a good season, and already beaten Brighton twice but the formbook often goes out the window at this point.HEAD TO HEAD RECORD(Max last 10 only)Jan 2014 Championship Derby 1-0 BrightonAug 2013 Championship Brighton 1-2 DerbyJan 2013 Championship Brighton 2-1 DerbyOct 2012 Championship Derby 0-0 BrightonMar 2012 Championship Brighton 2-0 DerbyNov 2011 Championship Derby 0-1 BrightonNov 2008 Carling Cup Brighton 1-4 DerbyNov 2005 Championship Brighton 0-0 DerbyAug 2005 Championship Derby 1-1 BrightonFeb 2005 Championship Brighton 2-3 DerbyMake no mistakes, there is much more pressure on Derby than Brighton. Derby have had the heartache of not getting an automatic qualification spot whereas Brighton come here on the high of sneaking into the lottery that is the playoffs.In reality, Derby were a full eight points away from automatic qualification but still finished third ahead of Brighton and QPR and Wigan who will contest the other semi.Both teams are coming into this in reasonable form although Derby’s away form has dipped (winning only three of their last 11 away games).Derby usually score goals for fun, indeed their tally of 84 is the best in the whole league but history shows these first leg affairs tend to be cautious as the fear of conceding often outweighs the courage of scoring.In stock market terms the bears outnumber the bulls.So, it’s a low scorer – and I’m betting the draw on Star Sports at around 9/4.RECOMMENDED BET (scale of 1-10 points)6 points DRAW at around 9/4 with Star Sportslast_img read more
