The lads put in great team performance with everyone doing their bit. The score taking, tackling and kick passing from both teams was of the highest order.

Burt led the match right up until the last five minutes when two super goals sealed the win for a joint team 4Gaels. Final score 4Gaels 3:5 Burt 1:6. Scorers for Four Masters were Niamh Doherty 1:1; Emer Burke 1:0; Aine McGroarty 0:2. Well done to all the team and management.Another wonderful performance served up by our U13 girls vs Glenfin away this evening (Thurs) to book our place in a county semi final. Four Masters wasted no time with Sarah Canny scoring a goal within the first minute of the game. We never lost the lead after that. 2 goals each for Aine Byrne & Sofia Miziri as well as points from Aoife Cox & Ciara Gillespie Cassidy left us 5-2 to 1-4 ahead at half time. The score doesn’t reflect how close the game was but resolute defending and some wonderful point blank saves from Rachel Reid kept us in control. Further points in the second half from Ciara Cox, Lucy Monaghan and Ciara Gillespie Cassidy kept our lead in tact. Ciara Cox & Emma Sweeney added goals with Four Masters running out 7.5 to 2.6 winners. This was a great team performance with the girls displaying improvement all over the pitch. All the players gave 100% while on the pitch, defending strongly and attacking with great accuracy. Well done to all the girls and good luck in the semi final.Club Lotto: There was no winner of the lotto jackpot €3,000 in week 14 of the 2016/17 season draw held in the Abbey Hotel on the 17th October 2016.

Times to lose 8% of editorial staff

first_img Last week, The Sun said it would cut 75 jobs, or 5 percent of its work force, with 12 to 15 expected to come from the newsroom. In September, Newsday, the Tribune Co.’s dominant daily newspaper on Long Island, said it would reduce its coverage of New York City and cut 45 positions from its newsroom staff. Last month, Chicago-based Tribune, whose holdings include 11 daily newspapers, 26 television stations and the Chicago Cubs, said third-quarter profits tumbled 82 percent because of an adverse tax ruling that forced it to take a huge charge. The media company’s results also showed continuing sluggishness in advertising sales and lower revenue from newspaper circulation, although Tribune executives said recent circulation trends show improvement. Tribune Co. spokesman Gary Weitman said there was no directive to the dailies about job cuts but said they are being made as individual papers develop their operating plans. Last month, Chairman and CEO Dennis FitzSimons said in his third-quarter letter to shareholders that “all of our newspapers are pursuing further cost reductions to be implemented by year end.” Newsroom cuts do not necessarily mean diminished news coverage, said newspaper analyst John Morton, president of the media consulting firm Morton Research Inc. “These newspapers generally have by industry standards fairly fat news staffs, so generally the layoffs are not draconian,” Morton said. In September, The New York Times Co. said it would cut about 500 jobs across its company, or 4 percent of its work force; Philadelphia’s two major newspapers said they would cut a combined 100 jobs. The San Jose Mercury News, owned by Knight Ridder Inc., cut 16 percent of its newsroom staff earlier this month through attrition and buyouts. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

In Chicago, the total number of Tribune jobs cut will “likely” be fewer than 100 and will be distributed across all departments, publisher David Hiller said in a memo to employees. Many of the jobs being eliminated are open positions but there will be no voluntary buyouts, he said. Decisions on layoffs will be made in the next two weeks. The Orlando Sentinel’s publisher, Kathy Waltz, told staff in a memo the paper would cut “a limited number of positions,” according to copies of the memo posted on several industry Web sites. Waltz did not say how many jobs would be cut or from which departments. The Florida paper did not immediately return a call for comment on Wednesday. Three newspapers owned by Tribune Co., including the company’s two flagship papers in Chicago and Los Angeles, said Wednesday they will cut jobs amid declining circulation and revenue. The cuts come one week after another Tribune paper, The (Baltimore) Sun, and Knight Ridder Inc.’s San Jose Mercury News both announced similar cost-cutting moves. The Los Angeles Times said Wednesday it is eliminating about 85 newsroom positions, or approximately 8 percent of its editorial staff. Some of the cuts already have come through attrition and some will come through a voluntary separation program, editor Dean Baquet wrote in an e-mail to staff. The balance will come through layoffs by year’s end. last_img read more
