There is absolutely no question about their right to remain and I am very sorry for any confusion or anxiety felt. The vast majority will already have documentation that proves their right to be here.

We’ve also set up a webpage and have been speaking to charities, community groups and High Commissioners about providing advice and reassurance to those affected and we will set up a dedicated contact point to ensure this is resolved as soon as possible.last_img read more

Three reasons Sydneysiders are flocking to Brisbane homes

first_imgAndrew and Karen Hirst and their two children Oscar and Chloe have moved up from Sydney buying a large home in Red Hill for the same price as a small cramped terrace in Sydney. Picture: Adam ArmstrongSYDNEYSIDERS are ditching the confines of their overpriced smaller homes and heading to the sunny north for three main reasons, according to the latest data.Uno Home Loan’s latest market analysis shows that it would take a Marketing Manager on an average wage in Sydney almost seven years to save a deposit on a median-priced home, compared to just three years on the same salary in Brisbane.Uno Home Loans CEO Vincent Turner said Brisbanites were on a pretty good wicket compared to our Sydney cousins who would need to earn at least $150,000 per year gross salary, with no dependants, just to service a loan on a small property in the 10km zone.“People in Brisbane whinge about wages not keeping up with house prices, yet when you look at Sydney we seem to be in a pretty good position comparatively,” Mr Turner said. Uno Home Loans CEO Vincent TurnerEx-Sydneysiders Andrew and Karen Hirst with their two young children saw the benefit of the Brisbane property market and purchase a home in Red Hill at the end of last year.Ms Hirst said they got priced out of their home suburb in Sydney and were forced to make a lifestyle decision when she fell pregnant with their second child.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home1 hour agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor7 hours ago“We were lucky we entered the Sydney market when we did in 2012 but trying to upgrade our home was a massive challenge,” she said.“We ideally wanted to stay in the same area but financially that was not doable.”Late last year the family bought a four-bedroom, two-bathroom home with pool, sitting on a 900sq m block in Red Hill for $200,000 less than the two-bedroom terrace they sold in Lilyfield, Sydney.Ms Hirst said her husband was able to get a transfer within the company he worked for so managed to maintain the same salary, while she was able to negotiate a similar wage in Brisbane to her Sydney job as a digital director but on a part-time basis.Mr Turner said Uno Home Loans data analysis was showing that three main factors were making Sydneysiders rethink their lifestyle choice in their international city and move to the north.1. Rents are up to $700 month cheaper making it easier to save for a deposit.2. Stamp duty is significantly lower reducing the amount needed to save for a deposit.3. Median house prices in Brisbane are around $540,000, half that of Sydney’s $1.1 million median price.Yet their analysis shows that wages between the two cities are not that different, for example, a Marketing Manager on an average wage in Sydney would earn around $82,000, while the same person in Brisbane would be on around $78,000.“We’re certainly now seeing people rethinking where they want to live, especially in the first homebuyer early 30s category,” Mr Turner said.“They’re using the calculators on our site and seeing it doesn’t add up with living in inner-city Sydney, so while Melbourne is an attractive option, obviously there’s better weather in Brisbane.”last_img read more

first_imgREPORTSSaturday 9th April 2016Old Orchard Saturday Division Orchard F.C. 0 Drumkeen United 0Orchard F.C. finished the season as runners-up in the Old Orchard Saturday Division Two of the Donegal Junior League. Sean O’ Donnell’s men won seven matches and drew five with only two defeats during the campaign. They scored thirty three goals and conceded sixteen amassing twenty six points. Drumkeen United finished in third spot again winning seven matches with five draws and four defeats. One unusual statistic of the St. Patrick’s Park men was the face that they ended with a negative goal difference, -1, an unusual occurrence for a team in the higher places in the tables.Glencar Inn Saturday Reserve DivisionCappry Rovers Reserves 0 Milford United Reserves 6 Milford United Reserves completed their League season with a six goal victory over Cappry Rovers Reserves. The victory means that the men from Moyle View finish in fifth place in the table, three points ahead of Donegal Town Reserves. Cappry Rovers Reserves played most of the season with youth players who will have learned from their experiences and will be better prepared for next season due to this fact. Milford started Saturday’s game strongly and were ahead in the 8th minute when Joey Cullen finished off a good move. Milford kept the pressure on and made it 2-0 when Jamie Whelan scored from the penalty spot. It was 3-0 in the 43rd minute when JJ Fleming finished off another Milford move. Cappry didn’t give up and tried to get back into the game but Milford were still well on top and made 4-0 when Joey Cullen headed home at the back post. Joey Cullen completed his hat-trick with another header in the 70th minute. Milford completed the scoring in the 83rd minute when Ciaran Blaney finished well.The Saturday League ShieldStrand Rovers 0 Drumbar F.C. 3Drumbar F.C. are the first team through to the Final of the Saturday League Shield. Their opposition will come in the shape of either Fintown Harps AFC or Mulroy Celtic who contest the second semi-final on Saturday next at Pairc Achla, kick-off 2 p.m.Sunday 10th April 2016 Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionKilmacrennan Celtic 3 Glenea United 4The game between Kilmacrennan and Glenea on Sunday had a late start and neither team seemed to get into the game for the first 15 minutes. It was Glenea who were quickest off the mark though when one of Kilmacrennan’s defenders misjudged the ball and Ciaran Mc Geady fired the ball into the net. Just two minutes later Glenea doubled their lead when a free from just outside the box deflected off Kilmacrennan’s wall and slotted into the net. It took a while for Kilmacrennan to get into the game but just before half time they got a goal back when Caolan Kelly scored an excellent goal from outside the box leaving Glenea’s keeper with no chance. The second half started off at a much quicker pace with both teams having a good few chances. It wasn’t until the 77th minute that the next goal came. Glenea’s Darren Mc Geever was the man to score this time. Glenea were awarded a penalty on the 80th minute as one of their players was adjudged to be taken down in the box. Jason Hegarty stood up to the mark to deny Glenea a third goal. Glenea’s Christopher Cannon found himself one on one with the keeper on the 84th minute and made no mistake putting the Glenea men 3 ahead. The last 5 minutes of the game was an exciting affair, Kilmacrennan’s Garry Gorman got two goals back and it looked like they might get a draw but it wasn’t to be. Best for Glenea were Ciaran Mc Geady, Darren Mc Geever. Best for Kilmac were Caolan Kelly, Michael McLaughlin.Rathmullan Celtic 2 Cappry Rovers 2Dara Patton and Shea Coyle scored for Rathmullan while Brian Lafferty and Alan Patton got Cappry’s two goals in this end of season encounter at the Flagpole.Kildrum Tigers 2 St. Catherines 1 Kildrum started like a house on fire and took the lead after 4 minutes when William Lynch slotted home from a Brian Coll free-kick. St. Catherine’s levelled after twenty minutes when Maguire finished precisely from the penalty spot. Kildrum restored their lead on twenty three minutes when good work from Shane McIntyre and Damian Crossan set up Gary Crossan who rattled home from 25 yards. Kildrum were well in control in the second half and threatened through Colhoun, Crossan and McIntyre but couldn’t get the killer goal. The Saints pushed men forward late on but the Tigers were resilient and were well worthy of the three points.Temple Domestic Appliances Division OneRaphoe Town 0 Convoy Arsenal 2Raphoe and Convoy enjoyed a good battle at the Deele College Grounds on a fine day for football. It was an even first half with both teams having chances. Convoy went ahead when Eunan Kelly curled a shot past Roy Duffy. The second half belonged to Convoy and they scored a second when a lapse in concentration let in Ryan Carlin to score. Good performances from both teams. Referee: James Malseed.Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. 0 Donegal Town 3Donegal Town had the most of the possession in the first half of this match at Rab’s Park. Kerrykeel netminder Shane Sandilands made three if not four outstanding saves to keep his side in the game. Donegal took the lead on forty four minutes when Benny Byrne headed them in front. Kerrykeel gave as good as they got in the second half and on sixty five minutes they were awarded a penalty which unfortunately for them they missed. Donegal went on to score two more in the final ten minutes of the game.Bonagee United 3 Lifford Celtic 1The first chance of the game fell to Paul Carlin for the visitors on twenty minutes but he shot wide from ten yards. A Shane Kelly cross on twenty five minutes for the home side was headed over by Greg Jacob from six yards. Eamon Cannon for Bonagee saw his strike from thirty yards hit the cross bar on forty three minutes. The home side took the lead on fifty three minutes when after good work down the right by Noel O’ Donnell he found Chris Darby outside the box and his shot was pushed away by the keeper and the incoming Greg Jacob who shot home from six yards. Lifford levelled the match on the hour after a cross into the box from the right fell to Adam Kelly and he shot home from ten yards. Bonagee got their second on seventy minutes after a Shane Kelly cross from the right to Chris Darby and he shot home from fifteen yards. Kelly and Carlin were always a threat for the visitors in attack. Bonagee got their third on eighty eight minutes when Eamon Cannon scored direct from a corner kick. Team effort by both sides. Referee: Barry Hunter.Keadue Rovers 0 Lagan Harps 0Lagan left Central Park with a point that could have a big bearing on the destination of the Temple Domestic Appliances Division One trophy. The League crown is now in their own hands and a victory next Sunday against Kerrykeel would give the Orchard Park side the silverware. It will not be easy however as the other Orchard Park men, Convoy Arsenal are breathing down their neck only a point adrift should Lagan slip up. Convoy visit Bonagee next weekend while also still in the title mix are Donegal Town who are level with Convoy and host Lifford Celtic next Sunday.CT Ball Division TwoLetterbarrow Celtic 1 Ballybofey United 3This was the last game of the season for both teams and was played in a good spirit at Tymeen. Ballybofey started brightly but Letterbarrow took the lead on 25 minutes when their top scorer for the season, John Corley, tapped in from close range. Ballybofey got their equaliser with fifteen minutes remaining when Damien Glackin tapped into the empty net when the home side stopped in anticipation of a free out for a foul on the home keeper. Two minutes later, Glackin added his second when he was put through by Wizard McGowan. Letterbarrow pushed hard for an equaliser and James Mc Groary was unlucky when the visitor’s keeper made a top corner save from his 25 yard free kick. As they pushed forward Letterbarrow left gaps at the back and Glackin secured his hat-trick (but not the match ball in this league!) in injury time.Whitestrand United 4 Copany Rovers 0On a cold brisk Spring day Whitestrand United took on Copany Rovers at Mc Garvey Park. Whitestrand started the game on the front foot when Matt McNulty broke through and slotted past the advancing Copany keeper. It wasn’t long before McNulty was through again but this time his shot went narrowly wide. Whitestrand kept up the pressure with Copany only rarely venturing into the opposition half of the pitch and the second goal came when Kevin Loughrey broke through and scored with a shot across the keeper. The second half started in a similar vein to the first when Kevin Loughrey got his second goal with a well struck shot. Whitestrand had numerous chances with long range shots from both Loughrey and Brendan Callaghan going close to extending the lead. The final goal came when Shane Mc Glade made no mistake and calmly slotted past the keeper. All in all it was a good performance from Whitestrand to end their games at Mc Garvey park for this season on a high. Best for Whitestrand were Kevin Loughrey and Matt McNultyDeele Harps 0 Erne Wanderers 2Visitors Erne Wanderers left Lifford with the CT Ball Division 2 title following a late twist in the title race. Deele started slowly and never really got going and went behind following a spill from the keeper and the unfortunate Deele defender tapped into his own goal. Erne were strong in defence and well marshalled by Eamonn Cleary and Ryan O’ Brien and Deele couldn’t break them down. The second half was a tough encounter with little in the way of chances and as Deele pushed for the equaliser the sucker punch came when Erne broke and Michael ‘Sticky’ Ward fired home from the edge of the box. With Curragh Athletic and Glenree drawing it was Erne who lifted the title. Best for Erne were Ryan O’ Brien and Eamonn Cleary.Curragh Athletic 0 Glenree United 0Curragh and Glenree played out a fairly uneventful match at the Oaktree Complex on Sunday afternoon. Glenree came to Killygordon with one eye on Promotion and another on the League Title. With these two in mind this is how they went about playing the match, cautiously hopeful. While they shaded the play for much of the game they were never far enough in supremacy to go fully at the home rearguard, deciding instead to hold what they had and maybe gain something extra on the break. That said, Curragh had the most accomplished player on the field in the evergreen Dermott Shield who gave a lesson in defending that all young players could do with watching and learning from. He controlled everyone around him without any fuss and his presence surely motivated this performance from Curragh, one of their best of the season. Congratulations to Glenree on their promotion.RESULTSSaturday 9th April 2016Old Orchard Saturday DivisionOrchard F.C. 0 v 0 Drumkeen UnitedGlencar Inn Saturday Reserve DivisionCappry Rovers Reserves 0 v 6 Milford United ReservesThe Saturday League ShieldStrand Rovers 0 v 3 Drumbar F.C.Sunday 10th April 2016Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionKilmacrennan Celtic 3 v 4 Glenea UnitedRathmullan Celtic 2 v 2 Cappry RoversKildrum Tigers 2 v 1 St. CatherinesTemple Domestic Appliances Division OneRaphoe Town 0 v 2 Convoy ArsenalKerrykeel ’71 F.C. 0 v 3 Donegal TownBonagee United 3 v 1 Lifford CelticKeadue Rovers 0 v 0 Lagan HarpsCT Ball Division TwoLetterbarrow Celtic 1 v 3 Ballybofey UnitedWhitestrand United 4 v 0 Copany RoversDeele Harps 0 v 2 Erne WanderersCurragh Athletic 0 v 0 Glenree UnitedFIXTURESWednesday 13th April 2016 K.O. 6.45Drumoghill F.C. v Kildrum TigersSaturday 16th April 2016 K.O. 2 p.m. (Unless Stated)The Saturday League CupDrumkeen United v Arranmore United (K.O.1 p.m.)Orchard F.C. v Glencar CelticThe Saturday League ShieldFintown Harps AFC v Mulroy CelticGlencar Inn Saturday Reserve DivisionCappry Rovers Reserves v Glenree United ReservesSunday 17th April 2016 K.O. 2 p.m. (Unless Stated)Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionKilmacrennan Celtic v Drumoghill F.C.Milford United v Kildrum TigersCastlefin Celtic v Glenea UnitedSt. Catherines v Rathmullan CelticTemple Domestic Appliances Division OneDonegal Town v Lifford CelticKerrykeel ’71 F.C. v Lagan HarpsBonagee United v Convoy ArsenalCranford United v Raphoe TownDONEGAL LEAGUE: ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES was last modified: April 10th, 2016 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:Donegal Leaguelast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, May 21, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The forecast is less friendly this morning for parts of the state, as we are having to increase moisture potential. Here in the short term today, there is not much change. Most of Ohio will turn out partly sunny, but will remain cool with strong north flow. We will keep an eye out in NW Ohio for a renegade shower or two, trying to push in toward midday and early afternoon out of Indiana. Tomorrow we continue to watch as the offshoot moisture from a cold front to our west works in. However, we are leaving moisture totals along, with a clouds and a few scattered showers. Rain totals will be no more than .25″ and generally will be a few hundredths to a tenth, with 60% coverage (mostly north of I-70). Temps will be significantly warmer. Our first tweak of the forecast is to add more moisture for Thursday, as lingering showers hold across a large part of Ohio. We can see additional rains of a few hundredths to half an inch with coverage at 70%. Friday will turn dry again, but will stay warm. Unfortunately, the weekend looks more active. We had been looking for rain and thunderstorms on 1 day out of the 3 day holiday weekend…now we are raising that to 3 out of 3 days. Showers and a few thunderstorms can be around each day Saturday through Memorial Day Monday. Coverage each day will be from 50-60%, but combined for the 3 day period we should see coverage closer to 80%. Combined rain totals will be from .25″-1″, with the potential for .1″-.4″ each day. Stronger thunderstorms should stay well off to the west and south.  The map at right shows cumulative rain potential through Memorial Day next Monday We get a dry day for next Tuesday, the 28th, as our next system is pushing back just a bit. Scattered showers arrive Wednesday the 29th, mostly from I-70 north, but they look less intense. For now, we are pulling moisture back to .25” or less with coverage at 75%. Dry to finish the 10 day window and start the extended 11-16 day period next Thursday and Friday (30th & 31st). Sun on the first will give way to clouds and we see rain arriving that night. That rain continues into June 2nd with combined moisture totals of .25”-1” and coverage at 80%. We are projecting 3 dry days behind that to finish the extended period for Monday the 3rd through Wednesday the 5th. There could be another system on the way for the 6th.last_img read more
