DOZENS OF INVESTORS MEET AT ANGRY MONEY SCAM MEETING

first_imgDOZENS of investors in the dodgy ‘pyramid’ scheme sweeping Donegal met in a Letterkenny Hotel last night to vent their anger.Dozens of angry investors, some who invested more than €200,000 each in the scheme, are fuming that they have been left high and dry.The Mr.Big behind the scam, which supposedly bought cheap stock and sold it on as a profit, has now fled to Estonia. He has constantly told investors that they WILL get their money and named several dates for the money transfer.But each time the conman has come up with different excuses.Two of the agents who helped publicise and oversee the scheme met with investors at the Letterkenny Hotel and again assured them they will get their money.An email from the company which arranged the investment scheme told investors they will have an update on their money by this FRIDAY. However one investor told donegaldaily.com after the meeting that he will believe the promises from the company when he has his cash in his hand.“I have been told on four different occasions that I will be getting my money on four different dates.“But each time these people have come up with different excuses. I’m at my wits end but I have to keep believing I will get my cash or I will crack up.“I invested a six figure sum and I owe an absolute fortune. I don’t know what I will do if I don’t get my cash back.“Now we’ve been told that we will be hearing major news on Friday about our money. I’m hoping against hope but we’ll see,” he said.

first_imgLetterkenny Chamber Chief Executive Toni ForresterTWO more shops have closed in Letterkenny – but it’s not all bad news.Classic Casuals and Unique have pulled down the shutters for the last time at Letterkenny Shopping Centre.Classic Casuals’ well-known outlet on the town’s Main Street is still open and trading well. Toni Forrester, chief executive of Letterkenny Chamber, said there was mixed news in the town.She said it was sad that more jobs had been lost, but insisted the Chamber is working around the clock to promote Letterkenny.Ms Forrester also revealed that the Shop LK inititive had been a huge success – with €500,000 worth of vouchers sold since its launch just over four years ago.“It is always sad when a business closes because of the impact on those who own the business and their employees,” she said. “There is definitely mixed news in retail with footfall down and spend per customer down but there is also excellent value for money and we are promoting the town wherever and whenever we can.“The Shop LK vouchers scheme has been a massive success because that shows people are shopping locally and when people do shop locally, they are supporting and creating local jobs.”TWO MORE SHOPS CLOSE DOWN IN LETTERKENNY was last modified: March 8th, 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)last_img read more

UP TO 70% OF DONEGAL WORKERS PAYING TOO MUCH – TAX EXPERT

first_imgA leading tax expert has said that 70% of Donegal workers are overpaying on their taxes.Michael Coll from Letterkenny-based company The Tax Clinic is advising PAYE workers that they could well be paying more tax than they should, but the good news is that it can be claimed back.Michael explains that after the toughest budget in history everybody has been hit with the introduction of the new universal social charge and the cutting of tax credits. But people out there must realise that there are millions and millions of euro that can be claimed back!“The average refund we’ve been claiming for our clients is about €880 and the highest refund we’ve gotten has been €17,500 for a young couple from Killybegs.“Many people are confused about what they are entitled to, but our website is full of useful easy to understand information on what is available to claim.“For example if you held a full medical card for any period in either 2009 or 2010 you should not have paid the Income Levy and you are entitled to claim it all back,” he said. Mr. Coll says it is important that taxpayers realise that you can claim tax back for up to four years so if you haven’t claimed for a few years it’s still not too late.For further details contact www.thetaxclinic.ieEndsUP TO 70% OF DONEGAL WORKERS PAYING TOO MUCH – TAX EXPERT was last modified: March 23rd, 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

MCGARVEY BROTHERS ‘WRITE’ A NOTE IN THEIR DIARY FOR TV DOCUMENTARY

first_imgWe all know they’re made of the ‘write’ stuff but now the young McGarvey brothers have gone international!Brothers Ronan and Conor from Loughanure have already built up a fine reputation for their fledgling business Donegal Pens.The pens, which are made from recycled wood, are owned by everybody from Daniel O’Donnell to Gerry Adams. But now the word is spreading across the world as a French/German television crew arrive in the county to film the lads for a television documentary.The crew from the television channel ARTE and ZDF will spend next Tuesday, May 17th chatting to the lads abut their remarkable true-life success story.The crew is compiling a five-part series on Ireland, each programme 45 minutes in length, and they selected the young brothers for one of the five slots.The ‘Discovery’ programme is expected to be aired on the ARTE and ZDF networks later this year. Programme producer Heiko De Groot said he has read about the Donegal Pen entrepreneurship, the small production facilities and the effort they put into the crafting and wants to feature them in the series.Proud dad Eoin McGarvey said “It’s great for the lads but they’re fairly laid back about the whole thing. I think I’m more excited than they are.”EndsMCGARVEY BROTHERS ‘WRITE’ A NOTE IN THEIR DIARY FOR TV DOCUMENTARY was last modified: May 10th, 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

Big-cat law gets its claws

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card The law prohibits interstate or Internet trade or transfer of live lions, tigers, leopards, cheetahs, jaguars, cougars or any hybrid combination of these species, unless certain exceptions are met. An estimated 10,000 to 15,000 exotic cats, such as lions and tigers, are kept as pets in the United States, according to the Humane Society. The law does not affect federally licensed exhibitors, such as zoos and circuses, academic institutions, veterinarians and accredited wildlife sanctuaries. The guidelines recently filed in the Federal Register state that these animals are “never completely tamed; nor are they totally predictable, even if they have lived their entire lives with humans.” A 30-day public comment period will end March 2. Violations of the ban on interstate shipments of the animals are subject to a prison term of up to five years and fines up to $250,000 for an individual or $500,000 for an organization. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has produced the regulations needed to implement the Captive Wildlife Safety Act, a locally-generated federal law to limit interstate and Internet sales of exotic big cats. The initial legislation was co-authored by U.S. Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, at the urging of actress Tippi Hedren, who runs a sanctuary for lions, tigers and other exotic animals – many of them discarded pets nursed back to health at her Shambala Preserve in Acton. President George W. Bush signed the bill into law in December 2003, but it had no teeth until the Fish and Wildlife Service drew up regulations and penalties. “The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spelled out why keeping big cats as pets is dangerous and inhumane,” Richard Farinato of the Humane Society of the United States said in a prepared statement. “Wild animals don’t belong in our backyards and basements. These are time bombs waiting to explode in our communities.” last_img read more

DANIEL REVEALS BRAVE MAJELLA WILL SHAVE HER HAIR BEFORE CHEMO

first_imgSinger Daniel O’Donnell has revealed his wife plans to shave off her hair before she starts chemotherapy for breast cancer.Daniel and MajellaThe Donegal star said partner Majella is recovering after undergoing a successful lumpectomy and was told last week that she will start extra treatment on September 12.The Kincasslagh man revealed it had been a difficult time for them, but his wife was a strong and healthy woman who wanted to take control of her hair falling out. “At the minute she is cutting her hair,” said O’Donnell.“She is going to have it shaved. She doesn’t want her hair to fall out.“She decided she is going to take charge of her hair going.“It’s very short now and her next step after she has her first treatment she is going to get it all off.” O’Donnell said reports that his 53-year-old wife was clear of cancer were incorrect.He said he had meant the surgery had removed the cancer but there was still a possibility she would need more treatment, like the majority of patients.It is not yet known if she will also have to undergo radiation therapy, or if she will decide to undergo surgery to prevent the cancer reoccurring in the future, he added.DANIEL REVEALS BRAVE MAJELLA WILL SHAVE HER HAIR BEFORE CHEMO was last modified: August 28th, 2013 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:breast cancerdaniel o’donnellMajella O’Donnellshave hairlast_img read more

‘STUDENTS FROM BORDER AREAS DESERVE EQUAL ACCESS TO EDUCATION’ – DOHERTY

first_imgDeputy Pearse Doherty has called on education authorities to do more for students from border areas in order to provide equal access to third level education.Pearse Doherty TDDeputy Doherty made the comments as hundreds of students from across Donegal and other border areas remain ineligible for admission to third level institutes via the HEAR Programme; the third level admissions scheme for school leavers from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds.The Sinn Fein Spokesperson on Finance said the Hear Programme gives students who come from socio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds – a group which traditionally is underrepresented at third level – the chance to benefit from higher education by offering college places on a reduced points quota. “However, while the programme is of huge benefit to the thousands of students from across Ireland whom participate in the scheme each year, the programme is unavailable to the many students in border areas who reside in the South and receive their schooling in the six counties because the programme does not recognise A Level Examinations.”“I have raised the matter with the Minister twice now and she has informed me that access to third level rests exclusively with colleges and universities and she has stated that she has no intention of intervening in college admissions – this is simply unbelievable.”“While I understand that Third Level Institutions are self-regulated, the Minister has a responsibility to promote equal access to education; I cannot understand how a huge section of Irish society – one which is already largely underrepresented in higher education as things stand – can simply be ignored and forgotten like this.”He added that in an effort to resolve this scandalous inequity, he has written to the various institutions which participate in the HEAR Programme asking that they give this matter their urgent attention so that students from border regions are no longer discriminated against in the sector. “Additionally, I have also written to the Higher Education Authority in relation to this issue and I have since received a response from the body in which it states that it is currently following up on this matter with the HEAR Unit within the Irish Universities Association and the HEA has said that it will keep me updated regarding this matter also.”“I feel that this situation is grossly unfair to the many A Level students, many of whom live in Donegal, as it is widely felt that they are being denied equal access to education simply because of where they reside.”“Naturally, I hope that through these lobbying efforts this matter can ultimately be resolved and that students here can be treated with the fairness and equality which they rightly deserve.”‘STUDENTS FROM BORDER AREAS DESERVE EQUAL ACCESS TO EDUCATION’ – DOHERTY was last modified: March 17th, 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
