Nurse Geraldine Mullan was taken to Letterkenny University hospital but her injuries were said to be not serious.Gardai are investigating the possibility that road resurfacing work that had been underway just a couple of days earlier, may have contributed to the crash. Stormy weather conditions may also have been a factor it’s believed.The funeral of all three will take place in Moville parish church at 11am.The family have asked for donations to Laura Lynn Children’s hospice in lieu of flowers.

Annaleigh Ashford Tapped for George, Starring Jake Gyllenhaal

first_img View Comments Annaleigh Ashford (Photo: Bruce Glikas) It’s hot up here! Tony winner Annaleigh Ashford will star opposite the previously reported Jake Gyllenhaal in Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s Sunday in the Park with George. Two extra dates have been added to the New York City Center gala concert performance on October 24; the event will now also run on October 25 and October 26.Ashford will make her Sondheim debut in the role of Dot; she won the Tony for You Can’t Take It With You. Additional Broadway performances include Sylvia, Kinky Boots, Wicked, Hair and Legally Blonde. She is a series regular on Masters of Sex and recently completed work on The Rocky Horror Picture Show, which will air on FOX in October.The Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Sunday in the Park with George follows painter Georges Seurat (Gyllenhaal) in the months leading up to the completion of his most famous painting, “A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte.” Consumed by his need to “finish the hat,” Seurat alienates the French bourgeoisie, spurns his fellow artists, and neglects his lover Dot (Ashford), not realizing that his actions will reverberate over the next 100 years.last_img read more

Cricket match at Crabwood Creek tomorrow

first_imgFOR the third year running, Florida-Guyana Hope, a non-profit organisation based in Florida USA, will collaborate with Regal Stationery and Computer Centre for a series of charity events throughout Guyana and a feature cricket match at Crabwood Creek.The group, which comprises Guyanese that are now living in Florida, got together to accumulate resources to assist members of the Guyanese society who may need a helping hand. Since the majority of the Florida-Guyana Hope membership originally hailed from Corriverton a lot of the relief efforts are centred on that area.Tomorrow, the kind-heated gentlemen will match their skills against a Corriverton United Select team in an exhibition softball cricket match for bragging rights and fun, at the Crabwood Creek Sports Complex from 12:00hrs. Following the game, a grand donation of 40 wheelchairs and 20 walking aids will be made.In addition to the donation, the visitors will be spreading cheer to at least four Children’s Home around the country including West Demerara, East Coast Demerara and Georgetown.Some members of the Florida-Guyana Hope organisation include president Mohamed Yassin, vice-president Rajroop Ramkellawan (Bowie), treasurer Raj Bharat, secretary Guru Shivram and officers Anthony Dhannie and Buddy Rampersaud, some of whom will be part of the activities over the next few days.Other than charity work, the versatile Guyanese are very active on the field. In February this year, they played in the South Florida Softball Cricket League-organised Florida Cup and despite not winning the tournament they won many hearts.However, they have their fair share of troubles too. While preparations were ongoing for the annual trip to Guyana, some members were severely affected when hurricane Irma hit Florida and caused widespread damage. Yet, they decided to continue with the planned visit to help those in need.For the cricket match tomorrow, Florida-Guyana Hope members will be joined by friends including Mahendra Hardyal of Regal Stationery, Steve Narain of Steve’s Jewellery, Atif Khan of M&J Khan Grocery and Guyana Times Sport Editor, John Ramsingh with the aim of making their side a more balanced one.Teams for tomorrow’s cricket match are: Corriverton United James Hart (captain), Vibert Dan (vice-captain), Anthony Seeraj, Michael Dan, Lawrence Mentis, Raymond Lowenfield, Hassan Mohamed, Mirza Ally, Patrick Mentis, Zafrul Khan, Vishal Persaud, Fabian Seerraj, Akash Lutchman and Orin George.
