Deputy Charlie McConalogue has criticised government efforts after it was announced lairage capacity near Cherbourg Port, France has been increased to hold an additional 400 animals.The Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Agriculture said it is alarming the Minister for Agriculture has welcomed this increase as it does not go near enough to ensuring Irish farmers are in a position to export dairy bull calves.He said “We are at the peak of the export season, yet little seems to be done by government to aide those in the industry. The farming community is crying out for additional capacity for exporting their produce but this has not materialised. “I understand there is room for even more lairage capacity in Cherbourg, up to 600 additional spaces according to some estimates. Robust efforts from government on behalf of the Agri-sector is needed to have this expanded.“The beef sector is in crisis. The ongoing export issues combined with the news of tariffs on exports to the UK from the Republic have caused great anxiety in the sector. The Minister must give assurances to the farming community as we navigate the next number of weeks post Brexit,” concluded Deputy McConalogue.Government must give clarity to Agri-sector ahead of Brexit – McConalogue was last modified: March 14th, 2019 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)

Keylor Navas still feels wanted by Real Madrid: But when I don’t…by Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveKeylor Navas says he still feels wanted by Real Madrid.He has lost his starting spot to Thibaut Courtois this season, but remains confident that he can win it back.”The day that I think I can no longer start, I’ll go home and focus on something else,” Navas told EFE.”I have always worked to start.”In the end the coaches make the decisions.”I’m not playing as much as I want, but when I go on the pitch I think that I’m performing well and you have to value this.”Courtois has suffered an injury, but the Costa Rican isn’t sure if that’ll open the door for him to return to the starting role in the long term.”I think that you have to wait, as we don’t know what’s going to happen and only the coach knows this,” he said.”I’m 100 percent committed to the coach and the team, above all to a team that has to stay united.”I see myself here for many years.”In the future nobody knows, like in life, but I try to live in the present and my present is Real Madrid and I’m going to continue giving my all.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say

We reached the cup final against Manchester City, but we lost it. I had it again the hunger to play. If I had to go to another club, I would have stopped. Watford said: no, we want you to stay longer.”

Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Early Thursday morning Diane Macrae was among the first to arrive at a rally, off Kalifornsky Beach Road, in support of Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the Supreme Court. U.S. Senator Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), is considered a swing vote, and has said she has made “no decision” on Kavanaugh’s fate, as of Thursday morning. Alaskans urging a “no” vote are also making their case loudly with the support of the ACLU. The ACLU has been flying dozens of Alaskans to D.C. to deliver their message in person. Diane Macrae: “This was just neighbors talking to neighbors, and saying let’s do it, why be silent, if you support them you don’t have to be ashamed of supporting someone you think would be a good Supreme Court Justice.” Republican Senate leaders and White House officials said Thursday that an FBI background investigation into sexual misconduct allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh revealed no evidence of wrongdoing. A final vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination could come as early as Saturday, following a procedural vote on Friday morning. Macrae is joined by others in the community hoping that their voices will be heard: “There’s a lot of pressure on Lisa Murkowski from outsiders. It seems like our voice on the nationwide and all over is not being heard. Her phones have been busy, and this was a way to reach out and let her know this is support for Brett.”
