Quinn said: “If Minister Ruairi Quinn is serious about alleviating the distress of many thousands of students and their families, he could simply request that his Ministerial colleague, Joan Burton, instruct the Dept. of Social Protection to make urgent payments to students who have not yet received their grants.“These Urgent Needs Payments could be processed through the Community Welfare Service on the understanding that they are interim Grant payments.”Quinn continued: “The incompetence to date of the Student Grant processing body, SUSI , does not inspire any confidence in their ability to deal with the backlog with the necessary urgency and I believe that it is now time for immediate action.“The longer this crisis is allowed to continue, students are getting deeper into debt and I have become aware of cases where Landlords are now imposing a surcharge on students who are not in a position to pay their rent.” Quinn concluded: “The future of our Country is dependent on an educated workforce and it is vital that this Govt. immediately removes all barriers preventing students from remaining in 3rd Level Education.” CALL FOR URGENT SOCIAL WELFARE PAYMENTS TO STUDENTS WAITING ON GRANTS was last modified: November 14th, 2012 by BrendaShare 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:CALL FOR URGENT SOCIAL WELFARE PAYMENTS TO STUDENTS WAITING ON GRANTSlast_img read more

first_imgTERMON GIRLS WIN COUNTY U13 ‘A’ FINALHarry McGlynn, a name synonomous with ladies gaelic football in Termon and indeed in Donegal, and his daughter Lisa guided Termon’s talented u13 girls team to success last Friday evening.  An evening ideal for a county final in O’Donnell park saw Termon overcome Naomh Conaill. With the U14 A title, U12 silverware in the bag and having already overcome the likes of St.Eunans and Glenfin en route to the final Termon entered the game as favourites and didn’t disappoint.From the throw-in Termon’s hunger was evident as Mya Alcorn won the ball and bolted straight up the pitch shooting just wide of the mark. Subsequently Ciara McGarvey won the kick-out to open the scoring with a point.  The Glenties’ defence worked hard with Karla Doherty and Orla O’Donnell winning some good ball and working forward but Sarah Kho and Katie Mellett were impassable in the Termon defence and after Sinead McGettigan broke down a Glenties’ attack she passed to Lauren Mullen who fed full forward Aoife Kelly the ball to slot home the maroon and white sides first goal of the day, 1-1 to 0-0. Termon continued their blitz attack with Mya Alcorn adding a further 3points and Aoife Kelly another 1-1. The Glenties youngsters settled and dug deep as Natalie McDaid broke free to fire over Glenties’ first point of the day.  Lauren Furey added another point and Grainne Agnew scored a fine goal.  Referee Mickey Mulhern awarded a penalty to Emma Doherty and Glenties called on their captain and goalkeeper to strike from the spot.  Despite taking the penalty well, hitting toward the bottom right corner of the goals Termon’s Orla Corry pulled off an amazing save, diving across the goalmouth and quickly clearing the ball.  Eimeair Alcorn was fantastic in midfield for the burn road outfit as she carried the ball 50metres up the pitch, passed to cousin Mya Alcorn who split the posts once again.  Amy McGettigan cut out the following Glenties kick-out and scored a magnificent goal to widen the gap before half-time, 4-6 to 1-2.Naomh Conaill began the 2nd half well but the Termon defence of Sarah Kho, Maeve Doherty and Sinead McGettigan proved too experienced and strong for the young Glenties girls and denied them any scores. However Termon notched up a further 5pts through Casey Gallagher, Sarah Kho, Aoife Kelly, Ciara McGarvey and Amy McGettigan.  Naomh Conaill never gave up and Maria Bonnar continued to work hard for her team and got a goal her efforts.   Unfortunate for Glenties though hopes of a comeback were dashed as Termon introduced super sub Orla McLaughlin who quickly  bagged herself 3-1. Aileen Doherty and Grainne Agnew added another 2pts for Glenties but it was Termon’s Mya Alcorn who got the final say with a goal after some great play from team mate Ciara McElwaine. Final scoreline Termon 8-12 to N.Conaill 2-4.Termon’s experience had proved too much for the young promising Naomh Conaill side. Captain Mya Alcorn accepted the trophy from LGFA county secretary Siobhan Coyle.
