I remember that it was a very solemn walk in to the count centre at the University of Limerick Sports Arena after the General Election and I was on the cusp of losing my seat.“But thankfully, the fat lady didn’t sing then and I went on to retain my seat and indeed a seat for the Labour Party.“I will give this next option some very serious consideration.Deputy O’Sullivan “bucked the trend nationally” when she secured 11 per cent of the Limerick vote at the February 26 election – and the last Dáil place in the four seat constituency of Limerick City.“The Labour Party is strong in Limerick and it is around the rest of the country that we have to work on or rebuilding.“It’s fair to say that I am one of the four, along with Alan, Sean and Brendan and I feel that I have a lot to offer the Labour Party through my experience.“There’s plenty of fight left in this old dog”, Deputy O’Sullivan said as she recalled that just 24 votes separated her from a possible elimination in GE2016.The race for the last seat eventually came at a cost to former Fine Gael TD and now Senator Kieran O’Donnell who was eliminated on the final count NewsJan considering Labour leadership bidBy Staff Reporter – May 11, 2016 777 Print First Irish death from Coronavirus TAGSAlan KellyBrendan HowlinfeaturedJan O’SullivanLabour PartyleadershiplimerickSean Sherlock Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Proceedures and appointments cancelled again at UHL Facebook Advertisement Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April No vaccines in Limerick yet Twitter Linkedin Previous articlePics – Corbally Community GamesNext articleCollopy lawyers seek exclusion of probation report Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Shannondoc operating but only by appointment

The single bench of Justice CV Karthikeyan has directed Maridhas to take down five videos, allegedly defamatory to the channel as well as its Senior Editor and Senior Anchor. He has also been restrained from uploading any messages, pictures or graphical representation of any nature that are defamatory, derogatory or in the nature of a threat against the channel. “If the defendant wants to raise any social issue, he can always raise them but cannot make statements without verification,” the bench remarked. News 18 has filed a defamation suit against the Youtuber, valued at Rs. 1.5 crore. As an interim relief, the channel had sought Mandatory Injunction directing him to remove the defamatory videos and further desist from posting any such content in the future. The bench noted that the “balance of convenience” lies in favour of the channel, since the defendant had nothing to lose by not putting up further videos. “He can always take any defence, but till such defences are examined by the Court, it would only be appropriate that no further videos are put up in public view against the interest of the plaintiffs…hardship suffered by the plaintiff if such videos are continued to be uploaded/exhibited would far outweigh any other consideration put forth by the defendant,” the bench observed. The channel had also accused Maridhas of forgery, for using fabricated email in the name of the channel’s Editor to spread fake news. The Court was informed that the fake email was created using Proton Mai and was deleted immediately after sending out a fake email. The bench observed, “The plaintiff has come forward with a specific allegation that the defendant had created a false E-mail justifying the contents of the videos uploaded by him. This also substantiates the finding that the plaintiffs have come to Court with a prima facie case for grant of interim injunction.” The order of interim injunction shall remain in force till August 12, 2020.

Former Black Stars skipper, Stephen Appiah, has revealed that former AC Milan midfielder, Gennaro Gattuso, was the most challenging opponent he came up against in his professional career.Appiah faced several midfielders in his time in Italian football which lasted from 1997 to 2005 and then from 2009 to 2011. In those two spells, he played for Udinese, Parma, Brescia, Juventus, Bologna and Cessena.Despite the number of opponents Appiah played against, he believes that Gattuso gave him the most problems especially during the Ghanaian’s time at Udinese.“The toughest player I faced was Gennaro Gattuso and that was when I played for Udinese. We faced Salernitana, a team from the Southern part of Italy and that was where Gattuso was playing at the time.He was so difficult to play against and he even broke my tooth by the time match came to an end. He just would not allow you to go away with the ball.He was really the toughest among the likes of Emerson, Demetrio Albertini and the many others I came up against.”Appiah was speaking on Betway’s Live Instagram chat with fans on Saturday, May 9.
