first_imgDONEGAL SOUTH WEST TD Thomas Pringle today welcomed a commitment from the Government to examine ways of allowing traditional fishing methods in Inver Bay.Deputy Pringle has been lobbying on behalf of a number of fishing families who want to fish for sprat and mackerel in the bay using methods which are more than a century old.The Independent TD had asked Minister Simon Coveney to give the go-ahead for the practice to continue, arguing that claims the fishermen were also catching salmon just don’t add up. Deputy Pringle said today: “I tabled a question to Deputy Coveney because fishermen in Inver Bay who use traditional methods which have been in place there for over 100 years have been placed under severe pressure, particularly by the regional fisheries board.“This is because – perhaps both fortunately and unfortunately – the bay is partly formed by the estuary of a river in which salmon spawn. The regional fisheries board has tried to claim that the individuals to whom I refer are also fishing for salmon when they are out trying to catch sprat and mackerel.“However, they use completely different gear to fish for the latter and, therefore, the chances of their catching salmon are practically non-existent.“It is important that the type of fishing in which they are involved should be recognised as a traditional method. I understand there is precedent in this regard because a type of gillnet fishery exists in west Cork. “I welcome the fact that the Minister is going to consult the Marine Institute and the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources, Deputy Rabbitte. I look forward to a positive outcome in respect of this matter.”Deputy Simon Coveney told Deputy Pringle: “We are trying to be constructive with regard to this matter. If we can facilitate fishermen who use traditional methods, particularly in respect of specific stocks which fall outside the TAC system, I would be extremely anxious to do so.“Many restrictions are imposed on those involved in fishing in the context of effort, stocks, quotas and the tonnage that applies in respect of their boats.“If we can facilitate some flexibility in respect of allowing the use of other methods of catching fish which do not impact on vulnerable stocks, then I would be anxious to encourage this. However, we must ensure that we do our homework properly. The last thing I want to do is provide an indication that it is fine for fishermen to invest and commence fishing and then be obliged to clamp down on their activities in six months time as a result of a decision made by the European Commission.“What we do must remain consistent with the rules and the law. The reply I have given the Deputy is initial in nature and it suggests that significant opportunities exist if people want to pursue them.” DONEGALDAILY.COM – THE ORIGINAL 24/7 NEWS WEBSITE.

first_imgVANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) — After failing to score on his first three tries in a shootout, Damon Severson came finally broke through for the New Jersey Devils.Severson scored in the seventh round of the tiebreaker to give the Devils a 3-2 win over the Vancouver Canucks on Friday night.“I was lucky to have the guys call me tonight and be confident I was going to get the winner,” he said after scoring on a forehand deke. “It was nice to see the puck go in. … I did the move in practice the other day and scored, so I had to stick with it.”New Jersey Devils’ Stefan Noesen celebrates his goal against the Vancouver Canucks during the third period of an NHL hockey game Friday, March 15, 2019, in Vancouver, British Columbia. (Darryl Dyck/The Canadian Press via AP)Kevin Rooney and Stefan Noesen scored 7:53 apart in the third period to tie the score after the Devils trailed 2-0. MacKenzie Blackwood stopped 25 shots to give New Jersey its second straight win after a seven-game skid (0-6-1).“I’m really happy for our guys,” Devils coach John Hynes said. “They battled back. … It’s a credit to the guys in our room, the older guys, the leadership guys, because they set the culture.”Elias Pettersson and Tanner Pearson scored for Vancouver, and Bo Horvat had two assists. Jacob Markstrom finished with 31 saves.The Canucks mathematically remain in the playoff hunt. They trail Arizona by nine points in the race for the final Western Conference wild card.“You want to close those games out,” Markstrom said. “We have to keep building, getting better as a team and close those games out. … It’s tough when you’re up by two and lose in a shootout.”New Jersey Devils’ Kurtis Gabriel (39) and Vancouver Canucks’ Troy Stecher (51) vie for the puck during the first period of an NHL hockey game Friday, March 15, 2019, in Vancouver, British Columbia. (Darryl Dyck/The Canadian Press via AP)Petterson also scored on the opening attempt of the shootout, and Drew Stafford tied it for New Jersey in the second round.Rooney started the Devils’ comeback with a deflection at 5:41 of the third. Noesen tied it with 6:26 left in regulation when he chipped Eric Tangradi’s pass behind Markstrom.“They got a couple of lucky bounces,” Vancouver coach Travis Green said. “It was that type of game. … There wasn’t a lot of space on the ice for either team. They got a couple of pucks through to the net and got some rebounds. I don’t think either ream really outplayed each other.”Vancouver Canucks’ Chris Tanev kneels on the ice after blocking a shot during the first period of the team’s NHL hockey game against the New Jersey Devils on Friday, March 15, 2019, in Vancouver, British Columbia. (Darryl Dyck/The Canadian Press via AP)Pettersson broke out of a scoring slump with a power-play goal to open the scoring at 3:18 of the second period. With Stafford off for tripping, Petterson took a pass from Brock Boeser and ripped a shot from the faceoff circle over Blackwood’s shoulder. It was his first in 12 games and gave the 20-year-old Swede 59 points on the season — a team-leading 27 goals and 32 assists. He is one point behind Pavel Bure and Ivan Hlinka for most points in a season by a Vancouver rookie.Pettersson admitted the goal drought was frustrating.“It’s been bugging me a little bit,” he said. “I have been trying to find a pass instead of shooting the puck. I have to be a little more selfish. I’m a guy that is always trying to find the pass first instead of the shot.“It was a big relief when it went in.”Pearson made it 2-0 at 1:42 of the third on an innocent looking shot from the top of the faceoff circle. Blackwood swung his stick, but the puck seemed to go underneath and between his pads.The Canucks lost two defensemen in a scoreless first period. Chris Tanev limped off the ice and headed to the dressing room after blocking a shot by Kyle Palmieri during a Devils power play. He returned for a brief skate, but left the bench again. Ashton Sautner was hurt later in the period after blocking a shot with his right arm. He returned later.NOTES: Vancouver also scored on a power play in Wednesday’s win over the New York Rangers. It’s the first time since November the Canucks have scored on the power play in back-to-back games. … Canucks F Jay Beagle didn’t take the pregame skate and was replaced by Tim Schaller. … The Canucks didn’t get their first shot on goal until almost 6:30 was gone in the opening period. . Before the game started, the Devils were eliminated from playoff contention when the Columbus Blue Jackets defeated the Carolina Hurricanes 3-0. New Jersey is 14th in the Eastern Conference.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

first_imgDortmund, Aug 29 (AP) Borussia Dortmund has agreed to sign Spanish forward Paco Alcacer on loan from Barcelona with an option to buy. The Bundesliga side says the 24-year-old Alcacer completed a medical on Tuesday and will wear the No. 9 for the club. Should Dortmund take up the option to keep the player, he will be tied to the club for a further four years after the one-year loan spell. Kicker magazine reported Dortmund was paying 2 million euros ($2.3 million) for the loan spell, while a permanent transfer fee would be 23 million euros ($27 million) if the club decides to keep him. Dortmund had been looking for a striker following the departure of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to Arsenal in January, and the end of Michy Batshuayi’s loan spell as his replacement. Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc says: “We’re firmly convinced this type of player will be a good fit for our style of play.” Alcacer, who joined Barcelona from Valencia in 2016, scored 43 goals and set up two more in 151 Spanish league appearances including a season at Getafe. He has six goals in 13 appearances for Spain. AP KHSKHSlast_img read more
