GAA: LATE COMEBACK JUST TOO LATE FOR DONEGAL IN LAOIS CLASH

first_imgDONEGAL 2-06, LAOIS 2-09: TWO goals in a minute threatened to upset a determined and tough Laois as Donegal went down by three points in this National League clash at O’Donnell Park in Letterkenny today.It would have been rough justice on the visitors had they eventually drawn or lost this match, for it was they who had the bulk of the game.For long periods of this match Jim McGuinness’s men seemed out-muscled and often out-classed. Ross Munnelly has Laois two points up in the first ten minutes as Donegal wasted a number of chances, typified by a wide from Anthony Thompson who put a very scoreable kick wide.It took the level head of Patrick McBrearty to settle Donegal as he hit two points to level the game, one of them a free from 30 metres out.But David Conway went up the other end in the 21st minute to restore the lead before a completely unmarked Munnelly scored a minute later.Conway then had a goal chance blocked – Colm Begley grabbed the breaking ball and fired over to chalk another point up for Laois. In the 29th minute McBrearty scored again for Donegal, a point quickly cancelled out by Paddy Clancy.And it was Clancy who was at the centre of all the attention just before half-time as Karl Lacey was adjudged to have fouled him in front of goal.Paul Cahillane stepped up to fire the goal into the back of the net to give Laois a 1-06 to 0-04 half-time lead.Donegal looked rattled as the second half began and their star performer from the first half McBrearty missed an easy chance in front of the posts as Laois raced further into the lead through scores from Conway and Darren Strong.There are groans around O’Donnell Park in the 16th minute of the second half when Paddy Clancy rises highest to win possession, turns brilliantly and hits the back of the net. But ten minutes later there is controversy as Donegal begin their fightback. Anthony Thompson claims a goal for Donegal – though the Laois players insist the ball didn’t cross the line.Clearly rattled the visitors lost all concentration and in the 29th minute Neil Gallagher takes advantage of lapse defending to fire in a second Donegal goal.O’Donnell Park was now much livelier but time had run out – and Donegal have lost again.The rest of today’s National League results are below> Allianz Football League Division 1Donegal 2-06 Laois 2-09, Letterkenny, ResultCork 4-11 Down 0-10, Pairc Ui Chaoimh, ResultAllianz Football League Division 2Westmeath 0-05 Meath 0-17, Cusack Park, ResultMonaghan 0-17 Kildare 0-12, Clones, ResultTyrone 2-15 Derry 0-09, Healy Park, ResultGalway 1-08 Louth 0-11, Pearse Stadium, ResultAllianz Football League Division 3Offaly 1-06 Roscommon 0-12, Tullamore, ResultTipperary 0-13 Antrim 1-12, Thurles, ResultSligo 4-14 Wexford 1-17, Markievicz Park, ResultAllianz Football League Division 4Limerick 1-13 London 1-07, Gaelic Grounds, ResultCarlow 0-13 Leitrim 2-09, Dr Cullen Park, ResultFermanagh 0-11 Clare 0-08, Brewster Park, ResultLEAVE YOUR COMMENT BELOW© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldailyFollow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailyGAA: LATE COMEBACK JUST TOO LATE FOR DONEGAL IN LAOIS CLASH was last modified: February 12th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:DONEGAL 2-06LAOIS 2-09:last_img read more

Hi-tech boost for fight against rhino poaching

first_img17 December 2014Drone aircraft have helped reduce poaching incidents in the Hluhluwe-Imfolozi Park in KwaZulu-Natal by 92 percent, says Shaya E-security, builders of the drones.The drone aircraft stream live video via satellite to “armchair pilots” on the ground.The custom-made drones clocked over 3 600 flying hours across in four separate deployments across Hluhluwe-Imfolozi, which has one of the biggest rhino populations in the world.While as many as 50 rhino are killed in South Africa’s worst affected areas, not a single rhino was lost inside Hluhluwe-Imfolozi during the initial one month-long drone pilot project, Shaya says.“We’ve proved the value of drone technology in the fight against rhino poaching,” said Ben van Dyk, chief operations officer of Johannesburg-based Shaya E-security, which built the drones.“The world urgently needs a solution to the poaching crisis, and we believe we’ve found it,” Van Dyk said.Real time monitoringShaya’s drone project features a range of remote-controlled drone designs, from a five- metre wingspan craft to the much smaller battery-operated drone.Van Dyk said the key to the drones’ success was on-board sensors and high definition cameras that are capable of providing real-time monitoring across a vast wilderness area.The craft flew at an altitude of around 500 metres and reached speeds of up to 180km an hour, providing constant live video as well as thermal and infra-red surveillance.The live images could be controlled or viewed remotely on portable devices such as laptops, or even a mobile phone, enabling faster reaction time and better communication with ground teams, the company said.“Anti-Rhino Drone Operations form part of an overall strategy that includes an effective Reaction Unit, intelligence gathering, and co-operation with the local SAPS,” Van Dyk said. The park’s management had effectively co-ordinated all the elements in the fight against rhino poaching.The project, which was concluded earlier this year, could provide a model for future deployments across the country, said Shaya chief executive Ian Melamed.“The problem with fighting rhino poaching in particular is that there is so much intimidation and danger to the people on the ground fighting the poachers,” Melamed said. “As a result aerial security surveillance is a hugely viable alternative.”“Drones are no longer seen as ‘killer machines’ but have found a new purpose – protecting animal life,” Van Dyk said.SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
