Despite a few minor traffic infringements and some cases of petty theft at some Games sites, operations commander David Manning says that the security operations have so far been good.Manning says that with no major incidents to report, the overall security detail has been spot on from initial scouting parties to Prince Andrew’s visit, the Pacific minister meeting as well as the overall Games venue and accommodation sites.Meantime, Police Commissioner Gari Baki has expressed satisfaction so far in the Games operations adding that Manning and his personnel and army and correctional services staff should be proud of the outstanding work that they had carried out so far.Baki says that the Games operations are a good indication of the capabilities that the RPNGC, the PNGDF and the CS have in terms of the upcoming major events such as the 2017 elections and the 2018 APEC meeting.Meanwhile Manning says that as with any major operations there will be a two week post-operation process to ensure that all contingents and games officials are secured and dealt with after which official operations will cease.

Higuain opened the scoring in the 44th as Milton Valenzuela collected a long diagonal ball from Artur near the endline and sent a cross back for the Argentina veteran to fire home a shot that Toronto goalkeeper Alex Bono couldn’t control.It was a fitting first goal of the season for Higuain, who engineered a series of dangerous Crew attacks in the first half to set the tone for the visitors’ victory.Zardes, acquired from the Los Angeles Galaxy in an offseason trade, doubled the score less than a minute into the second half, sliding a shot past Bono from a well-timed pass from Pedro Santos.That proved enough as Toronto saw two chances go begging in the second half, when Sebastian Giovinco’s curling shot in the 65th minute and Ager Aketxe’s long-range effort in the 78th both hit the woodwork.“Wonderful,” Crew captain Wil Trapp said. “The performance was excellent. The first half was really good, from a possession standpoint, creating chances, defensively being agile.“We did a wonderful job. And then second half we score early. We lost a little bit of the grip, but the intensity and ability to battle through a tough environment, tough team, was excellent.”For Toronto, the deflating defeat spoiled a day that started with a pre-game ceremony presenting the three trophies won by Toronto last season: the MLS Cup, the Supporters’ Shield as the team with the best regular-season record and the Canadian championship trophy.Giovinco thought that look back to the past may have been detrimental.“We continued to show the trophies, to think about what happened last year. This is not good,” he said. “We have to think this year is a very difficult year … “We have to change mentality.”More concerning, Toronto’s Victor Vazquez limped off in the 53rd minute, raising injury worries as Toronto look toward their CONCACAF Champions League quarter-final tie with Mexican side Tigres that begins on Wednesday.Toronto captain Michael Bradley said the team must regroup.“There is no place else to look other than at ourselves,” Bradley said. “This is what a lot of days will be like. We put this behind us quickly, get ready for a huge game on Wednesday.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Federico Higuain opened the scoring as Columbus Crew beat Toronto 2-0 in the first game of the 2018 Major League Soccer season © GETTY/AFP/File / Kevin C.

After Rebic’s opening goal, Robert Lewandowski equalised for Munich early in the second half.However, Rebic added his late second before substitute Mijat Gacinovic tapped into an empty net just before the whistle to delight Frankfurt fans and break Bayern’s hearts.“Everyone said that we’d be beaten out of the stadium,” said Frankfurt’s Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng.“But we showed heart and it was Bayern who were beaten.”This was supposed to be Heynckes’ farewell party with Bayern sending their 73-year-old head coach into retirement with the German cup and league double having wrapped up a sixth straight Bundesliga title.“It was an avoidable defeat and sometimes defeat belongs to sport,” said Heynckes graciously.“We made a serious mistake before they went 1-0 up. If you don’t exploit your chances, then you can’t win a cup match like that.“We also had bad luck, hitting the post twice, but we didn’t play with fluency or power and Eintracht are worthy cup winners.”It is exactly 30 years since Eintracht last won the German Cup as they lifted the trophy for the fifth time.“I am happy that we have won the cup after 30 years,” said Rebic.“The team deserves it, Bayern are always the favourites, but at the end it was us who won the cup.”Frankfurt’s Croatian head coach Niko Kovac reacts after the German Cup DFB Pokal final football match FC Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on May 19, 2018. © AFP / Tobias SCHWARZBayern made a bright start in the capital when Lewandowski hit the underside of the Frankfurt bar with just eight minutes gone.However, Frankfurt scored from their first clear chance.When Bayern midfielder James Rodriguez was robbed of possession in midfield, Kevin-Prince Boateng threaded a pass through to Rebic.The Croatia striker dodged the challenges of Bayern centre-backs Niklas Suele and Mats Hummels to plant his shot past Bayern keeper Sven Ulreich with 11 minutes gone.The shock goal sent a ripple of panic through the Bayern ranks as it was the third straight game they have fallen behind.– Clear penalty –Bayern went close with 25 minutes gone when Lewandowski fired wide of the empty goal after Franck Ribery and Thomas Mueller had already opened up the Eintracht defence.It should have been 2-0 to Eintracht eight minutes before half-time when Rebic squared for Jonathan De Guzman, who was unmarked, but the midfielder stumbled with the goal at his mercy.Tempers started to fray as Frankfurt defender Jetro Willems was booked for body-checking Joshua Kimmich but it stayed 1-0 at the break.Bayern drew level on 53 minutes when Suele combined with Kimmich, who picked out Lewandowski near the penalty spot to slot home the equaliser.Mats Hummels hit the post with a header with ten minutes left, but Frankfurt — and Rebic — were not to be denied.The Croatia international again burst in between Suele and Hummels and brilliantly lifted the ball over Ulreich.Bayern Munich’s Colombian midfielder James Rodriguez reacts after the German Cup DFB Pokal final football match FC Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on May 19, 2018. © AFP / Christof STACHEThe referee checked the replay on advice of the video assistant referee, but the goal stood to make it 2-1 on 82 minutes.Bayern were denied calls for a clear penalty after a foul on Javi Martinez deep into added time.“It was a penalty, but we shouldn’t start criticising,” added Heynckes, while Kovac admitted: “I have to say — it was a penalty”.With all Munich players in the Eintracht half and time running out, Frankfurt sealed the victory when Gacinovic got on the end of a Bayern corner, sprinted the length of the pitch to slot into an empty net in the 96th minute.The Eintracht squad mobbed the 23-year-old and the referee blew the whistle to trigger the Frankfurt party.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Frankfurt’s Croatian forward Ante Rebic (L) gets past Bayern Munich’s German defender Niklas Suele to score the opening goal during the German Cup DFB Pokal final football match FC Bayern Munich vs Eintracht Frankfurt at the Olympic Stadium in Berlin on May 19, 2018. © AFP / Christof STACHEBERLIN, Germany, May 19 – Ante Rebic ruined Jupp Heynckes’ farewell as Bayern Munich coach on Saturday with the Croatia striker scoring twice as Eintracht Frankfurt claimed an upset 3-1 win in the German Cup final.The victory gave Eintracht boss Niko Kovac his first trophy as a coach in his final match before leaving to take over from Heynckes at Bayern.

A pursuit then ensued and a number of Garda cars were involved in a chase.The car in which Gardai alleged in court that Dunleavy was driving eventually crashed and was a write-off.Dunleavy appeared in court where an application for bail by solicitor Donagh Cleary was refused by Judge Paul Kelly.Garda Inspector Kevin Gately said he feared Dunleavy would not appear in court and that he also felt the accused posed a danger to himself and others.He also suggested that Dunleavy will face more serious charges when he appears in court today.MAN IN ‘GARDA CHASE’ EXPECTED TO FACE MORE SERIOUS CHARGES TODAY was last modified: October 22nd, 2012 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:bailCATHAL DUNLEAVYGardaiLetterkenny District Court

One of Donegal’s best known coach and tour operators, Mangan Tours, has launched a new initiative to promote Donegal at home and abroad – with support from none other than Gay Byrne!Gaybo – a regular visitor to Donegal – is right behind the venture.‘Donegal Tours’ is a new Day Tours programme, accessible to visitors who would like to discover the county’s magic scenery and rich Donegal heritage, and to locals who would like to see more of their beautiful county. The proactive and much-needed initiative is set to provide a new platform to promote the Donegal brand locally and at international level. It also comes at a time when tourist operators across Ireland are promoting the new concept of ‘staycation’ whereby people are encouraged to holiday at home.Having decided to take the lead where nobody else has, Joseph Mangan explained: “The tours will offer everyone (visitors & locals alike) the chance to come across spectacular views, friendly communities and distinctive heritage.“It will be a real chance for people to re-discover our scenic coastlines and the unspoiled beauty of mountains without having to drive around themselves. Donegal’s natural beauty is second to none and it is a pleasure and an honour to be able to showcase this to visitors and locals alike.”The new organised tours will offer great exposure for county Donegal and will create value for all participants at local level, generating business for business providers, retailers and local tourism. It will provide the much needed tourist link from Letterkenny to Glenveagh, Dunlewey, Ardara, Slieve League, Inishowen, and Malin Head. The official launch of Donegal Tours took place on the 22nd of May at the Donegal Live Event in Dublin.
