Jan considering Labour leadership bid

first_imgEmail WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Jan O’SullivanFORMER Education Minister Jan O’Sullivan has told The Limerick Post that she is “seriously considering” an entry to the race for the leadership of the Labour Party.Following the resignation of Joan Burton, four front-runners have emerged from the remaining seven Labour Party TDs with Deputy O’Sullivan joined by Wexford’s Brendan Howlin, Tipperary’s Alan Kelly and East Cork’s Sean Sherlock.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The Labour Parliamentary party is set to meet next Tuesday and Deputy O’Sullivan said that she may “throw a hat in the ring”.The Limerick TD, who won a 1998 bi-election following the death of Jim Kemmy, said that the political landscape can change in a very short space of time so she would consider her position over the coming days.“Well it’s true to say that a week is a long time in politics and things have turned right around. 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 UHLcenter_img 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 last_img read more

Pistons’ sudden turnaround might be Dwane Casey’s best coaching job yet

first_imgNBA AWARDS 2019: MVP race | Rookie of the Year raceIt would not have been a surprise at that point if a giant hook had appeared and yanked Casey off the stage. The Pistons were unraveling for much of December and January, yet Casey kept talking about the playoffs, even talking about a Finals trip. He seemed to be off his rocker.Here we are, though, a little more than two months later, and Casey has turned the tide with this team, even after it shipped off two rotation players — Stanley Johnson and Reggie Bullock — at the trade deadline for long-term projects Thon Maker and Svi Mykhailiuk.The Pistons bottomed out at seven games below .500 in early February, but even then, there were signs that the team’s offense was shifting in the right direction. They’ve gone 14-5 since, their last loss coming with star Blake Griffin resting in preparation for the playoffs.Yep, the playoffs. Once left for dead, the Pistons are two games over .500 now and in possession of the East’s No. 6 seed. They’re 3.5 games ahead of the ninth-place Magic, virtually assuring Detroit will be in the postseason for just the second time in the past 10 seasons.Credit Casey with staying the course this season despite a roster that was dinged by injuries and short on depth. He was the Coach of the Year last season while with Toronto, but he was fired after the Raptors flopped in the conference semifinals against Cleveland. His Pistons went 3-0 against his old team this year and could face them in the opening round of the playoffs.He won’t win Coach of the Year this season, but a case could be made that he’s done a better coaching job through this tumultuous year in Detroit than he did last season with a talented and deep Raptors team.Casey’s first challenge was handling point guard Reggie Jackson, who rushed back from a right ankle injury last season and never fully recovered. He had a procedure on the ankle this offseason, but he was tentative in the early part of his return.That’s shifted, and Jackson has been much more aggressive going to the hoop lately. In his first 50 games, he shot 2.5 shots per game in the paint and made 43.5 percent of them. In his last 20, he is taking 3.2 shots in the paint and making 49.2 percent.It helps, too, that the Pistons’ 3-point shooters have come alive, including Jackson. Normally a below-average 3-point shooter, Jackson is making 37.2 percent of his 3s this season and 44.4 percent over his last 20 games. Streaky shooter Langston Galloway is making 46.0 percent of his 3s in the last 20 games (up from 33.6 percent in the first 50), and Luke Kennard is making 41.2 percent (up from 36.2 percent to start the year).The team has not missed a beat without Bullock, its top 3-point shooter, because free-agent signee Wayne Ellington has been starting and is averaging 10.6 points while shooting 39.5 percent from the 3-point line as a Piston. (Bullock went to the Lakers and has slumped at 32.5 percent from the arc.)In all, the Pistons shot 33.1 percent from the 3-point line in their first 50 games, last in the NBA. They’ve shot 39.2 percent in their last 20 games, first in the league.Easily the biggest criticism of Casey’s offense in the early going was that it was too reliant on Griffin taking the ball in the high post and dribbling into oblivion. But with the shooters not carrying their weight and with Jackson not quite playing like himself, Casey found that slowing the game down through Griffin was one of his few options.NBA MOCK DRAFT: Which prospect lands in Detroit?But that, too, has changed. Griffin is one of the heaviest dribblers among non-guards in the league, and over the first 50 games, 48.7 percent of his possessions were three dribbles or more, resulting in 9.1 field-goal attempts. Over the last 20, that’s down to 43.7 percent of his possessions and 6.9 field-goal attempts.The Pistons are not leaning so heavily on Griffin these days. In fact, they’re sharing the ball a lot more — their assist percentage has gone from 57.6 in the first 50 games to 59.2 percent in the last 20.There’s been one other key turnaround for the Pistons — the bench. To start the year, it was among the least productive group of reserves in the league, but that’s changed.Galloway’s hot stretch has helped, but having veteran backup point guard Ish Smith return to full health — he missed 26 games, mostly with a torn abductor muscle — has been a big factor. Kennard, too, had an early-season injury and only now seems more comfortable in his role.The difference among reserves over the first 50 games and the last 20 games has been stark:2018-19 PistonsPlus/MinusRankPoints per gameRankFG %Rank3PT %RankFirst 50 games-1.21933.32441.12930.928Last 20 games0.71240.6743.42039.01Casey has been flexible throughout the year, far less rigid than his predecessor, Stan Van Gundy. He’s been willing to lean on hot bench players, more willing to tinker with his rotation to find bench pieces he can use.It’s finally working. Griffin and center Andre Drummond have been mainstays all season, but Casey’s positivity has been there throughout, too. After the moves that sent away Bullock and Johnson gave the appearance of the Pistons giving up on the season, Casey told reporters, “That vision doesn’t change, and as long as I’m here, that vision will stay the same as far as trying to be in the playoffs, getting into the playoffs, ultimately to get people talking about the Detroit Pistons competing for a championship.”OK, a championship is still a bit far-fetched. But Casey has brought this bunch back into the thick of the playoff picture.That might have been a tougher thing to pull off than last year’s accomplishments in Toronto. Back in early January with his team in the midst of a stretch of 15 losses in 19 games, Pistons coach Dwane Casey said something that stood out as odd.”You can forget where we are and want to be ready for Golden State in the Finals,” Casey said. “But that’s not where we are right now.”last_img read more
