HARPS HOPING TO ‘RAMBLE’ THEIR WAY BACK TO WINNING FORM

first_imgDespite recent poor form Harps boss Peter Hutton remains positive and focused as Harps take on Cobh at Finn Park tomorrow night.Hutton said there is still a determined mood at the club despite losing the last four league games.“There is a real air of determination inside our squad. We have two big home games to look forward to and everyone is working together to make sure we get the results we need to get back on track. Missed chances at critical times and not tightening up have cost us in recent games, but I strongly feel that once we get our confidence back no-one will enjoy playing us.. “I believe our supporters have a huge role to play in bringing the club forward. In the short term we have two big games at home over the next couple of weeks against Cobh and then Longford. Encouragement from the terraces can make a vital difference to team performance especially with young players.”He said he fully understands it can be frustrating for supporters when results don’t go Harps way ,and there is no doubt as a team, and as a club the panel is a work in progress.“When you implement new ideas and structures into an any organisation , there is always some growing pains. Lack of finance is of course an issue, but we will continue to assess and improve our coaching and sports science structures as we go forward.“We all know there is people working hard on behalf of the club to deliver on the new stadium project as soon as possible. The prospect of better facilities and a more cohesive footballing structure will give us the platform to build the type of club we are all striving for.“ Speaking more specifically about the Ramblers game Hutton noted that it won’t be an easy game:“Cobh will be full of confidence following their impressive 3-0 victory over a decent Wexford Youths side last week. They have lost Conor Meade to Waterford but they still carry an attacking threat from players such as Martin Deady and Davin O’Neill, while young Kynan Rocks is an excellent prospect.“We had a tough encounter down there when we drew 2-2 so our players know they will have to be on top of their game if we are to take three points.“As the transfer window is now open “We have a few irons in the fire but we won’t commit to anything until we are 100% sure it’s right for us. My main concern at the moment is getting the current squad playing to their full potential, both individually and collectively. “ HARPS HOPING TO ‘RAMBLE’ THEIR WAY BACK TO WINNING FORM was last modified: July 4th, 2013 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) Tags:Cobh Ramblersfinn harpslast_img read more

Delivery driver attacked company’s vans after getting his P45

first_imgA delivery driver sprayed his employer’s vans with graffiti after being given his P45 despite being granted time off work.The man appeared in court charged with damaging two vans belonging to the Asian Food Stores in Letterkenny in June last year. Letterkenny District Court heard that Robert Stolarczyk used a special dye to scrawl slogans on the vans after being given the sack.Photos of the damaged vans were handed into court with one slogan reading ‘Slave labour.’The court was told that Mr Stolarczyk was originally paid €6 an hour as a trainee for the first year of his employment.Solicitor for the accused man, Mr Kieran Dillon, told the court how his client, of 21 The Gardens, Ballymacool Woods, Letterkenny, had been given the time off but was then sacked.He said he felt he felt he had no choice but to protest at how he had been treated by the company.He said “He has been in Ireland since 2005 but was not aware of the intricacies of employment law here, although this is something he is now very familiar with.He continued: “Shortly before this incident took place, my client asked for time off to pick up his father-in-law and this was agreed with his employer by way of text message. The following week he was not called into work and when he contacted his employer he was upset that he had received no notice.“On June 26, my client tried to establish what was going on and he was told he was going to be unemployed and would get his P45. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back and he saw red, literally. He felt he had to make a protest and tell the world at large what was going on.”The court had heard that on June 26, last year, at 12.30pm, gardai received a report of a vehicle which had been covered in graffiti at Asian Food Stores at the Ballyraine Business Park in Letterkenny.A short time later they said that the same kind of paint had been used to write all over another van belonging to the same person at the Starlight Business Park.The total damage caused to both, said Sergeant Jim Collins was €454.Mr Dillon added that the wording referred in the graffiti attacks belonged to a “very peculiar set of circumstances”.Mr Dillon told the court that the substance used to graffiti the vans was not traditional spray paint but was actually a product sold by the company he had worked for.He added the colourant was mixed up by the defendant and placed into a manual spray pump.“It washes off and my client tells me that his former colleagues washed it off that day with a bit of elbow grease. There was no lasting damage,” said the solicitor.Mr Dillon concluded: “My client accepts he was incorrect in what he did but after one year of working, he felt he was not being treated fairly. He is a 46-year-old father of five who has a strong work ethic and is currently trying to get his HGV licence.”Judge Kelly asked if the defendant was in a position to offer any compensation and Mr Dillon said that he would not be as he “feels so aggrieved at the way he was treated.”He also questioned the invoice for €454 which was handed into court.Judge Kelly adjourned matters until a sitting of the District Court on September 2 to obtain a Victim Impact Statement from the Injured Party and more information on the cost of the cleanup and whether or not there was a loss involved.Delivery driver attacked company’s vans after getting his P45 was last modified: July 9th, 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)last_img read more
