TYRONE REFUTE CLAIMS THAT DONEGAL MINOR PLAYER WAS TAUNTED OVER FATHER’S DEATH

first_imgTYRONE COUNTY BOARD have this evening issued a statement in which it completely refutes the suggestion made by Donegal minor manager Declan Bonner that a Tyrone player taunted Michael Carroll over the death of his father.Declan Bonner claimed Donegal minor star Michael Carroll was taunted over the death of his father.Declan Bonner said his Donegal minor captain Michael Carroll was taunted over the death of his father Francie Carroll who died from cancer last year.The stomach curdling taunts left Bonner questioning whether or not he wanted to be involved with the game and said something urgently needed to be done and the culprits held responsible for their actions. However, following the abhorrent revelations that has been met with condemnation by the rest of the GAA fraternity, Tyrone have responded by absolutely refuted all claims.The Tyrone statement read, “Due to persistent allegations circulating in the media, some of which have been attributed to the Donegal Minor football manager, regarding verbal abuse during the Tyrone v Donegal Ulster Minor Football Championship match, Coiste Contae Thir Eoghain has conducted an investigation, involving its management and players.“As a result of the investigation undertaken it would refute in the strongest possible terms that a comment was made by any of its players to a Donegal player regarding the death of his father in 2014. “Tyrone GAA in no way condone ‘sledging’ and the managers and coaches of all our county teams, from Acadamh Thir Eoghain to Senior, actively discourage this practice. Tyrone GAA congratulates both Donegal teams on their victories on Sunday in Ballybofey, wishing them well in the remainder of their 2015 campaigns and would express our deepest sympathies to the player on his loss.

ABC Green With Envy After Wired Debuts iPad App [Update]

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … mike melanson Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Related Posts center_img Tags:#Apple#mobile#news#web The Australian Broadcasting Corporation is said to be “leading the charge” in trying to get content on tablet devices, according to the Sydney Morning Herald, including, of course, Apple’s iPad, which is set to hit the market sometime next month. The ABC currently uses Flash, a software infamously not supported by the iPad, to stream video on its website.Just last Tuesday, Adobe and Wired Magazine announced a partnership, debuting a rather slick print-to-digital adaptation of the magazine. According to the report by the Herald, a senior executive at Adobe received an email from the ABC seeking a similar deal.Update: We mistakenly reported this as ABC, the American Broadcasting Company, not the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. The Herald quotes Abigail Thomas, head of strategic development at the ABC, as saying, the iPad will be more appropriate for entertainment than the iPhone.”It’s going to be an entertainment device. Whereas the iPhone is where you might get quick bites of news … with this [the iPad] you can imagine people sitting back on the sofa and enjoying something longer,” she said.While the iPad has received plenty in the way of criticism, including many seeing the lack of Flash as a huge detractor, it looks like some big names are working to get past this and get their content on the iPad. According the the Herald, a number of other companies, including the New York Times, Vanity Fair, GQ and Sports Illustrated, have also been working to bring their content to tablet devices, a number of which have been released at this week’s Mobile World Congress.Thanks to iPadInsider.com for the tip and lead image.
