Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The accused, who was originally remanded in custody to St Patrick’s Institution after the HSE told the court that they did not have “suitable accommodation” for him, returned to court this Tuesday when Det Gda Andrew Lacey cautioned and charged him at 15:50pm in front of his HSE case worker.He was further remanded in custody to St Patrick’s Institution, with the directions of the DPP to send him forward for trial on indictment to the Central Criminal Court. Solicitor for the accused, Darrach McCarthy, had told the court that his client had been under a voluntary care order to the HSE, had been taken into care and was being brought to a suitable residence in O’Brien’s Bridge at the time of the alleged incident.The Children’s Court had previously denied bail due to the very serious nature of the charges, with the HSE having stated they did not have suitable accommodation for the youth who had not been before the courts prior to the alleged incident.Mr McCarthy had said that his client needed the “assistance of the HSE now more than ever,” and that the charges were “preventing him getting that care”.

One in five MPs are landlords, register reveals

first_imgHome » News » One in five MPs are landlords, register reveals previous nextOne in five MPs are landlords, register revealsMost recently-released list of MPs’ interest shows shockingly high number of landlords in parliament.Nigel Lewis24th July 201702,625 Views One in five MPs are landlords, it is has been revealed following the release of MPs’ financial interests for the first time since this year’s General Election.MPs are required to give information on buy-to-let properties if they are worth more than £100,000 and/or generate an income of more than £10,000 a year.High profile MPs with rental properties include Hunters chairman Kevin Hollinrake (pictured, left), MP for Thirsk and Malton, who owns a third share in six residential properties in York as well as former housing ministers Brandon Lewis and Mark Prisk (pictured, right).Other notable MPs who are landlords include Hilary Benn, speaker John Bercow, Dr Liam Fox, Zac Goldsmith, Chancellor Phillip Hammond, Jeremy Hunt, Oliver Letwin, John Redwood, Keir Starmer, Emily Thornberry and Keith Vaz.These are just some of the 123 MPs who have registered buy-to-let interests. Properties include houses, flats, farm and holiday cottages, says Channel 4’s FactCheck. Labour MP Laura Pidcock (pictured, left), who recently revealed she couldn’t afford to bet on the property ladder despite her £76,000 MPs salary, told Channel 4 that she thought “anyone who is a landlord should not be able to vote on legislation affecting landlords, it is a complete conflict of interest.“Of course they won’t vote for further protections for people in their homes and will try to get away with as little regulation as possible, as they perceive that this will affect their profits.”Tory totalThe Conservatives have the highest number of landlord MPs at 87 or nearly a third of their total number, followed by Labour at 28 (11%) and the SNP at three (9%).This is not the first time that MPs’ conflicts of interest have been revealed – most famously, 72 landlord MPs voted down recent legislation to ensure homes are “fit for human habitation” while research by agent eMoov two years ago revealed that MPs with second homes funded by the tax payer had made £9 million in equity gains during the previous decade.laura pidcock Kevin Hollinrake mark prisk Brandon Lewis July 24, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Cooney hopes to put end to shooting slump as Syracuse takes on Pittsburgh

first_img Published on February 19, 2015 at 11:51 pm Contact Phil: [email protected] | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+ Trevor Cooney insists there are no mind games when shots don’t fall.“I’m not saying, ‘If I make the first one, I’m going to shoot an X amount of shots,’” Cooney said. “… I’m not saying, ‘Oh, great, now I’m 1-for-5. If I miss the next one, I’m 1-for-6.’“I mean, you just keep telling yourself to take good ones and if I’m open, I’m going to shoot it.”So he does. But lately, Cooney’s mantra hasn’t yielded results — at least not at an efficient rate. The Syracuse junior has now shot less than 37 percent from the field in each of his last four games, but hopes his luck turns around Saturday when Syracuse (17-9, 8-5 Atlantic Coast) takes on Pittsburgh (17-10, 6-7) at noon in the Carrier Dome.Cooney lumbered through Wednesday night’s game, hitting just 1-of-10 from the field and totaling just three points. The Orange still prevailed over No. 12 Louisville, 69-59, despite what Jim Boeheim called the worst game of Cooney’s career because of how good his looks were.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Maybe he’s got to take tough ones, I don’t know,” Boeheim said. “But he got really good looks tonight. This was the first time this year, that I can remember, where he got a lot of good looks and he just couldn’t get the ball to go in the basket.”Cooney’s turned in a pair of 28-point outings in ACC play, the latest being SU’s loss at North Carolina on Jan. 26, but his drop-off from 3-point range dates back even further.In SU’s loss to Clemson on Jan. 17, five foul shots accounted for all of his scoring as he missed seven shots from the floor. He hasn’t made more than four 3s in a game since SU’s win over Wake Forest on Jan. 13 — 10 games ago.And in the four games since then that he’s made three or more 3-pointers, he’s had to fire at least eight attempts to reach that total. It’s translated to less attempts from inside the arc — tries that usually help Cooney balance out his game.“He takes the shots he takes in practice and he knocks them down,” SU forward Rakeem Christmas said. “He’s going to go into practice, work on the same shots he takes and he’ll be fine.”On Wednesday, Cooney elevated from the right wing to drain a triple 32 seconds into the game for the Orange’s first points. But that was all he’d get to go down against the Cardinals.He missed in all sorts of ways and from a range of distances — including a fast-break layup that rolled off the rim for his only miss within the perimeter, and a deep, NBA-range 3-point attempt that clanked off the iron just as his other shots did.When it was all said and done, Cooney’s 10-percent clip was his second lowest in a single game this year.He’s possibly the only SU player currently averaging 10 points per game that will come back next year. Christmas only has five more games in an Orange uniform and forward Michael Gbinije’s hot streak could mean a departure to the NBA.So how Cooney finishes up the last five contests of the season could go a long way to dictating the momentum — or lack thereof — that Syracuse carries into next year.“It’s frustrating when you get good looks, you finally get good looks, and they just don’t go in,” Cooney said. “I felt like I was right on. You can compare it to baseball — just hitting line drives up the middle and they’re just getting caught in the outfield.“I mean, hopefully I’m just due. That’s all I can say.” Commentslast_img read more
