We suspect the increased demand for water arises fromtaps left runningburst mains which have not yet been locatedleakage in private propertiesThe Water Service in Donegal wish to appeal to the public to help us eliminate such wastage. This will help save water stored in reservoirs and avoid further shortages throughout the county .With the experience from the widespread disruption last winter we are highlighting the following areas in particular where the public can help eliminate wastage of the public water supply:Running taps – please avoid leaving taps running. This is counter productive and will run down available water in storageBurst mains / leakage – any suspected leaks on watermains or wastage should be reported to the County Council at your local public services centre.Vacant properties – please continue to check vacant properties where internal plumbing may be damaged by freezing conditions. Ideally the water supply to vacant buildings should be turned off and systems drained of all water, e.g. where members of the public who are going on holiday during the coming months, we would recommend that they turn off the water supply to their premises and drain all water out of the system before leaving the property.Farming Community – we ask that you check all field connections and turn off leaking drinking troughs. This has proven to be a serious problem in rural areas in recent years. We also ask for your assistance in checking for burst pipes in farm buildings and burst hoses laying over ground. Essentially anywhere on the farm that water may be lostCaravan Parks – another area that is often remote where plumbing may be exposed and water losses can be slow to appear, we appeal to all caravan park owners to turn off the water supply to eliminate wastage.Once again the co-operation of every community is required if we are to avert widespread shortages in water supplies.BREAKING NEWS: FULL LIST OF AREAS HIT BY WATER CUTS TONIGHT was last modified: December 29th, 2010 by gregShare 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

REVEALED: SCAM CROOK FRANCOIS MAY BE USING SECRET CASH STASH TO LOOK AFTER ‘FRIENDS’

first_imgIN A SHOCKING move which could see his prison sentence in the North increased, convicted conman Francois de Dietrich appears to have a secret stash of cash which he claims he will give back to some agents in Co Donegal…’via a third party.’Last Friday the Ballybofey businessman was given 18 months behind bars for breaching a High Court order in which he was told to give details of all his assets to the UK Financial Services Authority.He didn’t appear in court and a EU-wide bench warrant was issued for his arrest. Now donegaldaily.com has been shown an email which – if authentic – may be a further breach of the restraining orders granted by the High Court.A furious Belfast judge issued the arrest warrant after hearing de Dietrich had refused to disclose his world-wide assets to the FSA as required in a previous ruling.Donegaldaily.com has a copy of an email (printed below) in which de Dietrich’s ETIC Solutions claims 27 ‘clients’ had received money and that another 75 will get money this week.It reads: Dear Sir/Madam,We refer to previous correspondence, and are delighted to be in a position to now bring you the latest update with regard to liquidation payments.Despite the rather considerable pressure being applied by the FSA, we remain on course to deliver full and final payments on the dates previously outlined.Indeed over the past 5 days, we have already delivered payment to 27 clients, and by this time next week we will have completed a further 75 transactions.Throughout the next number of weeks, we will dispatch an email to remaining clients on a Friday afternoon, clearly outlining the latest position. As specified in previous emails, clients’ individual accounts will be dealt with on an individual basis only, and through a third party. Regarding recent press/media speculation concerning FSA court action in Northern Ireland, a statement will be released shortly from our Belfast solicitors, Madden and Finucane, in response to the speculation. Once again we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and understanding throughout this process.Yours faithfully,ETIC Solutions There is nothing to substantiate the authenticity of the email, though it did come from a source which has been reliable in the past.MORE UPDATES LATERREVEALED: SCAM CROOK FRANCOIS MAY BE USING SECRET CASH STASH TO LOOK AFTER ‘FRIENDS’ was last modified: January 30th, 2011 by gregShare 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:crookemailETICfrancoislast_img read more

MAYOR WANTS DONEGAL PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE GLOBE TO CELEBRATE THE SHAMROCK AT HOME

first_imgHAVING led by example and turned down a chance of travelling abroad for St.Patrick’s Day, the Mayor of Donegal wants people to come home to celebrate the shamrock.Mayor Cora Harvey has come up with a unique initiative aimed at bringing visitors and Donegal people home for the holiday.It is hoped that the Donegal Homecoming Initiative will eventually reverse the trend that has seen thousands of Irish leaving the country during the traditional St. Patricks holiday period. The establishment of St. Patricks Day as a national holiday back in the 1990s has been an overwhelming success throughout the world, with the day celebrated by millions people on all four corners of the globe.The St. Patricks Festival has transcended its original incarnation with hugely popular parades/events throughout the United States, Europe and Australia.Whilst these events offer Ireland the opportunity to market itself at its key markets, the message of ‘Coming to Ireland to live, do business and visit’ is often lost, she says.In response to this and by way of establishing Donegal as the place to be during this holiday period and the traditional start of Spring, Mayor Harvey hopes that by putting in place a range of actions, this initiative will help kick off the tourism season, boosting the Donegal Tourism industry. “I think that the success of Donegal Live in 2010 and the planned events in 2011 prove that there is an appetite out there for all things Donegal.“It is my opinion that we should be trying to market the St. Patricks Day holiday period as a fun-filled week celebrating our unique culture and heritage.”The Mayor added – “Donegal has been at the forefront when it comes delivering Flagship Festivals and Events. The Errigal Arts Festival’s Made in Donegal initiative in 2010 was a roaring success and projects a positive image for the County around the world.“In addition to this, we have the Donegal Bluestacks Festival and Mary from Dungloe to name a few.”The Donegal Homecoming Initiative will target a number of key actions throughout 2011 with a view to developing a keynote event of international standing during the St. Patricks Festival Celebrations in 2012. Under the Mayors proposals, the Donegal Homecoming Initiative will involve Donegal County Development Board’s Tourism Sectoral Forum involving Donegal County Council, Failte Ireland, Udaras NaGaeltachta and the private sectors tourism service providers.EndsMAYOR WANTS DONEGAL PEOPLE FROM AROUND THE GLOBE TO CELEBRATE THE SHAMROCK AT HOME was last modified: March 16th, 2011 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

LETTERKENNY TO LAUNCH SCHEME TO FILL VACANT BUSINESS PROPERTIES

first_imgLetterkenny is to examine new ways of attracting businesses to the town in a bid to create jobs and develop a number of long-term vacant properties.The issue was raised at last night’s meeting of the Town Council during which a call was made to incentivise new start-up businesses.Cllr Dessie Lakrin said a number of initiatives could be considered including the reduction of rates for new companies. “I’m not talking about sandwich bars or that as much as they are creating their own employment.“I am talking about emerging businesses who need to be developed as they try to get off the ground.“They should not be in a position where they have to pay €10,000 or whatever in rates straight off. We should introduce a sliding fee for them,” he said.Ends LETTERKENNY TO LAUNCH SCHEME TO FILL VACANT BUSINESS PROPERTIES was last modified: April 12th, 2011 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
