Denis Walsh’s coffin is shouldered by family members into Christ the King Church, in Caherdavin, Limerick, this Saturday, 25 years after he went missing. Photograph Press 22TWENTY-five years after being declared missing, Denis Walsh was finally returned to his loving family who laid him to rest in his native Limerick today.Denis, (23), left his home in Caherdavin, on March 9th, 1996, and his family never saw him again.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Up to last February, when they were visited by gardai with news of Denis’s whereabouts, Mr Walsh’s parents were unaware their son’s partial unidentified remains had been  discovered off Galway Bay, four weeks after he went missing.The remains were held at Galway University College Hospital Mortuary for 18 years, and eventually buried in a communal grave at Bohermore Cemetery in 2014.Mr Walsh’s remains were exhumed last Friday and reinterred in the family’s plot at Castlemungret Cemetery today following his funeral mass held at Christ the King Church, Caherdavin.The family has called for a review of the garda investigations into Denis’s disappearance and recovery of his remains on Inis Mor, on April 7, 1996. Gardai have said as far as they are concerned the case is now closed, and they have no plans to hold a case review.A documentary inquest in which no witnesses will be called, but who will have their statements sworn into the record, is to take place on April 29th.The Walsh family has been told they are not permitted to attend due to COVID-19 restrictions on public gatherings, however Denis Walsh’s father, Denis snr, said he has, through his solicitor,  sought permission from the West Galway coroner to attend the inquest, in order to ask questions about why his son’s remains were not identified sooner.Gardai have said the Forenisc Science Laboratory conducted tests of bodily samples taken from Denis’s remains, in July 2008, March 2011, and June 2017 however a match was not found until February this year through “advances” in DNA science.Mr Walsh snr (81) said he is still awaiting a response from gardai as to whether Galway gardai alerted garda stations, particularly Mayorstone garda station in Limerick who handled his son’s missing person’s file, about the discovery of the remains in 1996, and if not, why not.Family friend, Fr Tom Carroll, told mourners: “It has been a long vigil for the Walsh family as they waited for the news of Denis, and we can only begin to imagine your grief and your pain during that time – the fact that this (25-year) vigil was unnecessary, did not help.”“However, we are not here to discuss what happened, we are here instead to remember Denis and to reflect on the wonder and beauty of his time with us,” Fr Carroll added.The priest said Denis would be remembered for his love of animals, poetry, as well as his sporting prowess, which saw him line out for clubs across all codes, including Shannon RFC, Na Piarsaigh GAA, and Caherdavin Celtic.“It’s quiet unique to see people playing those different disciplines but he excelled in all of them,” said Fr Carroll.Denis’s brother Michael Walsh broke down as he paid a loving tribute to his brother who was “kind, compassionate, and liked a good laugh”.24/4/2021 Story David Raleigh.

In pictures: Extinction Rebellion Oxford stages protest outside Barclays bank

first_imgOne student who attended the protest, Isobel Innes, explained that the protest “was specifically against the direct involvement and culpability of banks in the climate crisis”.  Image credit: Feng Ho Image Credit: Feng Ho On Thursday the 1st of April, protesters from Extinction Rebellion (XR) Oxford gathered outside Barclays bank to protest the bank’s heavy investment into fossil fuels. Around fifteen individuals marched up and down Cornmarket Street beating their signature drums and holding placards that read “This bank funds climate chaos” and mock caution tape that displayed the words “Climate crime scene”. A Barclays spokesperson told Cherwell: “We have made a commitment to align our entire financing portfolio to the goals of the Paris Agreement, with specific targets and transparent reporting, on the way to achieving our ambition to be a net zero bank by 2050. We believe that Barclays can make a real contribution to tackling climate change and help accelerate the transition to a low-carbon economy.” Innes added, “As a low income student, I’m not ready to just lay down and die. Minority communities are going to be the hardest hit by the climate crisis. And that’s my friend, that’s my neighbour. They’re not millionaires and neither am I so of course I’ll help them.”center_img Image Credit: Isobel Innes Extinction Rebellion is an international non-violent direct action movement, demanding urgent action in the face of the climate emergency. The protest in Oxford was also followed by one at the Barclays Headquarters in London where several windows were smashed by Extinction Rebellion activists.

Pecan Crop

first_imgUniversity of Georgia Cooperative Extension pecan specialist Lenny Wells fears Georgia’s pecan crop will fail to meet initial production projections by as much as 20 million pounds.Instead of the 110 to 120 million pounds projected more than a month ago at the start of the harvest season, Georgia is now expected to produce between 90 and 100 million pounds of pecans, said Wells.Wells’ forecast comes on the heels of the start of the pecan harvest, when weather conditions were less than ideal. Georgia producers prefer cooler temperatures and drier weather, which help to preserve the crop for as long as possible on the tree. This fall’s warmer temperatures combined with recent rain showers led to a deterioration in the quality of this year’s Georgia pecans.“We’re starting to see some quality issues to the point that the percent of the kernel (that’s filled) is running a little bit low, lower than normal. The size of the pecans is good, but to some extent that could be part of the problem. Any time you have a large nut size with a heavy crop load on the tree, it’s hard for the tree to fill those kernels, even under the best conditions,” Wells said.The average pecan typically has 50 percent of its kernel filled. The Desirable variety—Georgia’s most widely grown pecan variety—usually has as much as 53 percent of its kernel filled, but has dropped to 47 percent this year in many orchards, Wells said.The UGA Extension expert blames cloudy weather toward the end of September for the reduced kernel fill.“Any time we get extended periods of cloudy weather during kernel-filling time, that can cause some problems for us and make it harder for that tree to fill the nuts out,” Wells said. “I think that’s a lot of the problem we’re seeing with the quality being lower than we’d like to see.”Wells said unseasonably warmer temperatures this fall—above 80 degrees Fahrenheit during October and November—followed by heavy rainfall also led to sprouting, or premature germination, in the Stuart variety. Sprouting is germination of the seed while it is still on the tree.“If you see a lot of the Stuart variety in the trees that have not opened up yet, a lot of times those nuts may have already sprouted,” Wells said. “The pecan itself is a seed. When you have high moisture conditions and warm temperatures, it will stimulate that nut to germinate and sprout.” In addition to weather-related problems, Georgia pecan growers fought late-season aphids and spider mites in September. Producers had to apply additional spray applications to preserve their crop, he said.“If you’ve got that much pressure, even if they’re spraying them, that creates a lot of stress on the tree,” Wells said.Wells recommends growers shake the trees and harvest the nuts as soon as weather conditions allow.

New requirements for MasterCard issuers for breach recovery

first_img 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Several changes have been put in place at the beginning of this year for the Account Data Compromise (ADC) program for MasterCard issuers seeking recovery in the case of breach. And one big new change is coming on June 1st of this year.Participation in recovery used to be handled case-by-case, with an opt-in to recover both Operational Reimbursement (OR) and/or Fraud Recovery (FR) pertaining to a breach, and in so doing waive rights to further class action activity. Now, participation in the recovery program is optional, and the issuer must opt-in to all recovery activity annually on a calendar basis. This simultaneously waives the issuer’s rights to participate in further lawsuits regarding activity of the ADC program.New caps for assessment against merchant acquirers for combined OR and FR have been implemented. These caps, 5%/10%/20% are based on the merchant’s prior year’s sales volume of under $50k, $50k to $500k, and over.If a breach involves less than 30,000 MasterCard accounts, there is no OR or FR chargebacks.And, as of June 1, 2016, there will be no FR or OR recovery for mag stripe only cards. This change is intended to encourage migration to chip cards. continue reading »last_img read more
