This includes 16 female officers.Some 60 officers were promoted to the rank of Corporal. There were 36 Constables, of which seven were females, and 24 Lance Corporals, of which 13 were females.Meanwhile, another 33 Constables, inclusive of five females, were promoted to the rank of Lance Corporal.On the other hand, as it relates to Special Constabulary regular ranks, six Corporals were promoted to Sergeant, of which only two were males. In addition, six Lance Corporals and two Constables were elevated to the rank of Corporal. These include four female Lance Corporals and one female Constable.Moreover, there were two female ranks among 12 Constables who were promoted to Lance Corporal.In relation to the Guystac ranks, only two of them, both of whom are women Corporals, were elevated to the rank of Sergeant. Another two females; one Lance Corporal and one Constable, were promoted to Corporal. Additionally, two Constables have advanced to the rank of Lance Corporals.With regards to Rural Constabulary, the Police promoted four Corporals to the rank of Sergeant, while 12 Constables received promotion to the rank of Corporal. These were all male ranks.Last year, Commissioner Persaud promoted some 333 ranks in total.An internal board headed by the Police Commissioner is responsible for making promotions of officers from the rank of Sergeant to Constable. Those from the rank of Inspector to Assistance Commissioner of Police (ACP) are promoted by the Police Service Commission (PSC). Meanwhile, the appointments of Deputy Commissioner and Police Commissioner are done by Government.However, senior ranks of the Police Force were left disappointed after the PSC announced in December that annual promotions, which are usually declared in December or early January, have been delayed until February 23, 2016.However, those ranks from Inspectors and upwards are yet to know whether they have elevated or not, since those promotions have not been announced. It was reported that the final list of promotions were handed over to President David Granger, Public Security Minister Khemraj Ramjattan and Police Commissioner Persaud.In December 2015, General Secretary of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP) Clement Rohee had called for Police promotions to be put on hold citing the high number of disciplinary matters pending. Days later, the PSC announced that it was putting a hold on the promotions, explaining that the list of nominees for promotion was submitted late.last_img read more

Donegal mother treated to glam TV makeover

first_imgA Donegal mother has had a well-deserved pamper session and makeover – and will be revealing her new look this afternoon on TV.Róisin McBride, the Vice Secretary of Donegal Down Syndrome, was nominated for a beauty makeover on Today with Maura and Daithi at 4.10pm on RTE1.Today’s edition of the chat show is focused on friendship, so Roisin and her friend Ciara were treated to a busy day of glitz and glamour in Cork. Ciara had emailed Today to share their story. “It was a fantastic day because everyone was so kind,” Roisin told Donegal Daily. “We had a brief interview with Dáithí Ó Sé before being whisked off to get our hair and makeup done.”Roisin and Ciara took the opportunity to highlight the great work of Down Syndrome Ireland and share their personal stories. They also got to meet Hector Ó hEochagáin and Tipperary hurling captain Brendan Maher.Roisin’s daughter Eve has Down Syndrome. Just months after her birth, Eve had to undergo open heart surgery in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.It was there that Roisin met Ciara Reid from Dublin, whose baby girl Réiltín was going through the same procedure. “The two of us immediately clicked,” Roisin said. “Ciara is a very level-headed lady and was a fantastic support.”“If I was having a bad day or worried about Eve, I would go to Ciara and she would hash it out with me. She would help me see that my problems weren’t as bad as I originally thought.”Odhran and EveRoisin was in Crumlin with Eve for three months from October last year. Eve’s father Seamus and older brother Odhran would visit them often as she recovered.“Life in Crumlin was like a pressure cooker,” Roisin said. She found a great friend when she met Ciara in December and they have been close ever since.“Our two little ladies brought us together, I hope now that they will be good friends too when they are older,” Roisin said. “There is strength that comes from these babies.” Both Eve and Réiltín are doing well following their surgeries. Eve had feeding issues after she was released from hospital and Roisin found that she greatly needed outside help.“We had gone from high dependency to nothing. There is no service in Donegal for feeding issues. I called Donegal Down Syndrome and the support that I got from them was fantastic. They came out to talk to me and gave great advice,” Roisin said.“Ciara was going through the same thing and I was in contact with her everyday as she advised me on feeding issues.”“The best experience and advice you can get is from a parent.” Roisin will take the chance to sing the praises of Donegal Down Syndrome during today’sTV appearance and highlight issues facing paediatric cardiology services.“It’s important that other mammies from Donegal who are travelling to Dublin or are down there to know that DDS is there to support them.”“This was a great chance to bring awareness to Down Syndrome and congenital heart defects. Forty per cent of children with Down Syndrome have heart defects.”Roisin also added that one third of children in the Children’s Heart Centre in Crumlin had Down Syndrome. There are only 25 cardiac beds to cover both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, and the centre has been funded by private donations and fundraisers.Donegal mother treated to glam TV makeover was last modified: November 4th, 2016 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:makeoverMOTHERRTEtelevisionTODAYlast_img read more

Leeds vs Preston: Championship preview and predicted line-ups

first_img goalless 2 Bielsa’s side have made an excellent start to the Championship season Strugglers Wigan hold Blackburn to goalless draw in Championship stalemate REPLY EFL result Every Championship club’s best signing of the decade, including Taarabt and Dack ROUND-UP impact Bannan penalty helps Sheffield Wednesday strengthen grip on play-off place Alex Neil (Preston North End): “Football is simple, you go through difficult spells at times and have good times. We finished seventh last season and have not started this season well. But it doesn’t mean that these players have gone from being good players to bad. It doesn’t mean the way we have been playing has gone from good to bad. What we have to do is stick our chests out and say, ‘Let’s prove people wrong and show what we can do’. If we don’t have that kind of mentality, we are in the wrong business.”Where can you listen to the match?You can hear live commentary of Leeds vs Preston on talkSPORT2 from 7.30pm.The channel is available through most DAB radios, via the talkSPORT mobile app and our web player.Team newsMarcelo Bielsa has named an unchanged line-up from their draw at Millwall at the weekend while Preston have made two changes from their defeat to Reading at the weekend. Latest Championship news Berahino hits back at b******t Johnson criticism – ‘I was in a dark place at Stoke’ Leeds lose at Fulham, West Brom held, Charlton’s winless run continues Leeds United are looking to extend their unbeaten start to the season when they host Preston North End on Tuesday night.Marcelo Bielsa’s side remain the only Championship side yet to suffer a league defeat this term, and they sit top of the table – one point ahead of Brentford, Bristol City and Middlesbrough. GREAT NEWS Leeds: Peacock-Farrell, Ayling, Jansson, Cooper, Douglas, Phillips, Harrison, Samuel, Klich, Alioski, RobertsSubs: Forshaw, Dallas, Pearce, Blackman, Baker, Edmondson, ClarkePreston North End: Rudd, Fisher, Clarke, Davies, Earl, Browne, Johnson, Barkhuizen, Harrop, Robinson, MoultSubs: Gallagher, Hughes, Burke, Barker, Maxwell, Huntington, Nmecha Hull defender MacDonald given all-clear after battle with bowel cancer Cardiff and Preston play out stalemate in Championship early kick-off 2 Bamford has been ruled out until the new year Unlike Leeds, Preston have started the campaign woefully, having secured just a single win from their seven matches to date. With only five points to their name, the Lilywhites sit second bottom of the table; only winless Ipswich are below them.However, Preston have already secured a win against Leeds this season, beating the Elland Road club in the Carabao Cup last month.What the managers are sayingMarcelo Bielsa (Leeds United): “They are a special team. Preston’s players have the skills to move the ball but they also have the aggression of teams with less skill. It’s a mix between skills and aggression and it’s an attractive mix. They have a position in the table they do not deserve.”We all think that when we make early conclusions, it means we have a lot of knowledge. You can’t anticipate the results in football. The day when you can predict the results in football, football won’t be that attractive. Technology is trying to make many efforts and I don’t think we should go this way. Football is famous because of it’s unpredictability.”last_img read more
