Emerging LIB Comics Bag Cellcom Endorsements

first_imgTwo of Liberia’s emerging comedians, S. Karie Walker (John) and Isaac Sunday Sieh (Paul), has signed a contract with the mobile giant, Cellcom.The contract, which was signed over the weekend, is worth more than US$ 24,000 and will last for a period of one year.Dream Debo, the manager of the two comedians, spoke to LIB LIFE during an interview to express their excitement over the contract.“For the level of hard work these guys have made in a very short period of time, this is an accomplishment,” Dream said.“You see comedy, it pays a lot and we believe this the beginning of their success,” he added.Further more, he disclosed that John and Paul have worked tirelessly and “indeed” deserve such a rewarding contract.“Many thanks to our fans for supporting our movies and turning our dream into to reality,” says Dream.However, Dream says the contract that was signed is not just for promotion, but it allows John and Paul to be the brand ambassadors for the company.He also added that his entertainment company, Platinum Entertainment, would continue to play a major role with the duo.“Platinum Entertainment still has the legal right over the two, but, when it comes to their film making, Cellcom is not responsible,” he revealed.Meanwhile, LIB LIFE surfed through Facebook and read a comment that Paul made on his page.“Papa God, I’m laughing because you put my enemies to shame. All those that said my life would not shine, big shame on them,” Paul posted on facebook.Efforts by LIB LIFE to contact John via mobile phone or Facebook did not materialize.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

‘Guyana is a place for all of us’

first_img– Minister Harmon during Region Three kite distribution exerciseMinister of State, Joseph Harmon, this morning distributed kites to children from across Region Three, Essequibo Islands/West Demerara, and encouraged them to participate fully in the celebration of Easter.Distribution was done at Wales Primary School, West Demerara Secondary School, and the Den Amstel Community Centre. This was part of the administration’s annual exercise, which allows the President and Ministers of Government to meet and interact with children across the country, and encourage participation in the annual tradition of kite flying in Guyana.“Easter is an important time in the life of Christians, and it has now become a celebration for all Guyana, irrespective of…religion. As you raise your kites, remember [the flag], remember Guyana. Remember that Guyana is a place for all of us. We’re one country, one Guyana. So remember that this is a time of togetherness; it is a time of cohesion… it’s about oneness,” the State Minister said.Minister Harmon also said the flags raised high in the air are symbolic of the rising hope in the hearts of all Guyanese.“The holiday of Easter represents the rising of hope for Guyana and the rising of hope for all of the children of Guyana… So, today, as I distribute these kites, it is really a symbol of what we all hope for in Guyana; that is: a rising of all our hopes and expectations, and the delivery of a good life for all of us as we live together in peace and harmony in this country,” he said.Teacher at the Wales Primary School, Ms. Nichola Gould, was inspired by the minister’s words. “It’s a great initiative, because, as he said, Guyana is on the rise, especially where children are concerned; because… the youth [will be] the leaders,” she said.The State Minister was accompanied by his mother, Ms. Susan Clement, and his daughter, Ms. Daniele Harmon-Klien.last_img read more

SON AND FATHER-IN-LAW COULD MAKE IT A UNIQUE DOUBLE AT SPORTS-STAR AWARDS

first_imgThis year’s Donegal Sports Star Awards has thrown up a rather unique family link.Soccer nominee Kevin McHugh, the veteran Finn Harps striker, will be joined at the 37th presentation function by his father-in-law Eamon Coyle who is the Hall of Fame winner.So the extended Coyle and McHugh families along with the county’s sporting public will be watching with great interest to where whether Kevin gets the nod in the soccer category and join in his father-in-law on stage to be presented with an award by special guest Billy Walsh the Irish Olympic Boxing Coach. All will be revealed at the Donegal Sports Star Awards on Friday week, January 25th in the Mount Errigal Hotel when McHugh will find out his fate in a very competitive soccer category along with Ciara Grant, Barry McNamee and Ryan Rainey.McHugh, who is married to Eamon’s daughter Aine, had his testimonial year in 2012 and once again the Killea man didn’t disappoint on the field in the Finn Harps colours leading the attack and finishing up the team’s top goalscorer again.Ryan Rainey from Bonagee helped St. Eunan’s College to an Irish Schools Soccer title in April and has gone to represent his country at U-16 level.  And in the Autumn he moved from his native Bonagee Utd to English Championship side Wolverhampton Wanderers.Ramelton’s Barry McNamee began the season with Derry City’s excellent young Ulster Senior League side who eventually ended up winning the USL for the first time in the club’s history. The ex-Swilly Rovers man nailed down a regular place in central midfield in the final two months of the season. It culminated in the 20-year-old winning an FAI Senior Cup medal with Derry at the beginning of November and later saw him being invited over for a week’s trial with Nottingham Forest. Letterkenny woman Ciara Grant has represented her country at every underage grade and in December the former Kilmacrennan Celtic player made her senior international debut in an away fixture against the USA. So there is plenty for the judging panel to mull over before making a decision on the Donegal Sports Star Award soccer winner before we will know whether a McHugh will make it a double success for the extended Coyle family.Eamon Coyle might have came to late to boxing but the Downings native quickly made up for lost time as in the space of just seven short years he reached the pinnacle of his career winning a Senior Super Heavyweight title at the National Stadium in 1982.Remarkably he was 21 before he became actively involved in the sport joining the British Railways Club in the Dublin Docks after getting his first job with the Department of Agriculture in the Capital.That was in 1975 and just four years later he won his first Irish title in the Junior Heavyweight Division. The national success earned him the 1979 Donegal Sports Star Boxing Award. By the time he reached the Senior Super Heavyweight Final in 1982 he had won two Ulster titles fighting out of Letterkenny Boxing Club under guidance of the legendary John McLaughlin.Tickets for the Donegal Sports Star Awards on Friday week, January 25th can now be booked by contacting the Mount Errigal Hotel on 9122700. Tickets are priced at 25 euro for adults and 15 euro for primary school pupils.

DOHERTY DEMANDS EIRCOM UPGRADE

first_imgSinn Féin Councillor Gary Doherty has demanded that Eircom immediately put plans in place to upgrade the telephone exchange in St Johnston.The village is still without a fixed line broadband service. Councillor Doherty proposed the motion at today’s adjourned meeting of Donegal County Council. Speaking today Cllr Doherty said “It is nothing short of a disgrace that a village such as St Johnston is without a proper fixed line broadband service in 2014. Broadband is a vital resource for business and it is an insult to the people of the village that they have been left behind for so long. “There is an exchange in St Johnston but it has never been ADSL enabled despite plans being put in place a number of years ago which would have facilitated an upgrade to a broadband service. I have been in contact with Eircom and they have refused to confirm whether a broadband service is available in St Johnston, when I know that it is not.“Previous Governments have attempted to take credit for the roll out of broadband in the village under the National Broadband Scheme. This scheme saw mobile broadband provided by 3 offered to residents in the village, but that has been a limited success at best. Anyone with experience of mobile broadband will now that it is temperamental and the service provided is not sufficient to support business users. Due to a huge subscription in St Johnston it can be painfully slow particularly at peak times and this is despite close proximity to the transmitter.”He continued “Eircom are neglecting Donegal as far as I’m concerned. We have areas such as St Johnston which have no broadband service. And then we have towns like Ballybofey that do have a broadband service but Eircom are refusing to roll out their fibre optic service to the centre of the town, yet they are supplying it to residential areas. To me it stands to reason that the businesses in the town should be the priority when it comes to upgrading the existing broadband.“I am demanding action from Eircom to rectify this situation. I would also call on the Minister for Communication Pat Rabbitte to step in and exercise his influence to force movement from Eircom. This situation cannot be allowed to continue.”  DOHERTY DEMANDS EIRCOM UPGRADE was last modified: April 14th, 2014 by John2Share 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:CLLR GARY DOHERTYEircomSt Johnstonlast_img read more

focused on the provision of health services to the population of almost 3,000 who lived on 18 islands off the coast of Ireland, that are not connected by a land causeway with the mainland.Marjorie Carroll, Comharchumann Thoraí Teo, in her address to the meeting said: “We welcome the establishment of the CHO 1 Island Services Project Group. “The isolated geographic location of Tory Island

those living on Tory Island and in ensuring the voice of the Islanders remains central to this work”.Island Services Project Groups have been set up in collaboration with the Islander’s and other interagency groups, tasked with the implementation of the recommendations set out in the report.Speaking also at the meeting, Dr Kevin Quinn GP Arranmore Island said: “I have worked for 35 years as a GP on Arranmore and know that services work well when communication is good and we have a common vision.“We must continue to maintain and improve services and this will require continuous support to both primary healthcare providers and voluntary community groups. “The project is to be welcomed and I look forward to its implementation.”John Hayes, Chief Officer CHO 1 and Chair of the Island Services Project Board, highlighted the importance of collaborative working with the Island communities and local interagency groups in addressing the recommendations contained in the report.He added: “Recently formed structures in Community Health areas, the Department of Health and Emergency Management will advance this work.All of these groups will partner with and include representatives from other agencies such as the Councils, Island Communities and so on. “I welcome the establishment of the CHO 1 Island Services Project Group and the opportunity to hold this first meeting on Arranmore Island.“There is a significant amount of work to be undertaken over the coming months and years, to ensure high-quality sustainable health services for the Islands population.“However despite the challenges, the HSE is committed to ensuring this work is progressed in a coordinated manner, with the voice of the Islander’s central to the process,” he said.“Today marks the beginning of an exciting chapter in the journey toward the provision a fair, high quality and sustainable Primary Care services to Island communities in Donegal and I wish the members of the Island Services Project Group every success in their work.”Photos: Clive WassonEdel Quinn, General Manager Primary Care, John McCafferty, Manager, Comharchumann Forbartha and Fostaíochta Árainn Mhór, John Hayes, Chief
