DONEGAL CANOE CLUB MAKE A ‘SPLASH’ CLEANING UP RIVER DEELE

first_imgSome of the rubbish removed from the River Deele on Saturday.You don’t expect to find ironing boards, engines and silage wraps strewn all over hidden rural rivers but that’s just a small section of the rubbish members of the Donegal Canoe Club came across as they cleaned up a section of the River Deele last week. The river, which runs from outside Drumkeen to a mile below Lifford, really is a hidden gem for water sport enthusiasts containing as it does some of the most challenging courses in Donegal.And when you factor in things like two metre drops, grade two and three features, 20 metre slides and obstacles known as The Beast Hole and The Coffin Hole, then you know this is not for the faint hearted! Club members regularly use a section of the Deele outside Drumkeen and often host clubs from other parts of the country who want to experience the challenges it presents.Indeed it was one such visit that prompted club members to leave their canoes at home and walk the banks to remove the rubbish that had built up there.Club chairperson Michael Roulston said they hosted a canoe club from Mayo recently but were nothing short of “embarrassed” at the state of what they found in and along the river.“We found household rubbish, ironing boards, irons, car bonnets, car gearboxes, foot mixers, farm waste and loads of silage wrap. “When it floods the water levels can rise by up to six feet in places and this leaves plastic bags and the wrap in the branches of trees the whole way down.They look like bad Christmas trees. People are simply dropping their rubbish over the side of the bridge,” he said.He added this inspired them to come out on Saturday and Wednesday evening last and in a three hour period covering half a kilometre, members filled over 30 bags of rubbish.“It was unreal. We had to be very careful as this river can be treacherous. It has large drops and 90 foot banks that are hard to scale not to mention trees that stick out. We had chainsaws to trim some of them back because if you hit these in a flow there’s no way of stopping.”Mr Roulston added the Deele had great potential to attract visitors interested in white water paddling and this could only be good for Donegal so it was important resources like the Deele were kept clean and attractive. He added the Donegal Canoe Club used many rivers throughout the county and even took part in sessions around the coast and encouraged anyone looking for a diverse and challenging sport to get in touch with them at the club’s facebook or website.Stranorlar Municipal District litter warden, Brian McBrearty, said Donegal County Council was delighted to be associated with the club’s efforts as part of the Big Donegal Clean Up campaign.“This was an excellent example of people interested in their surroundings taking the initiative and getting involved. Their work is invaluable and has made an instant improvement to this section of the river. People should be aware that when they are dumping rubbish they are only harming their own environment in the long run,” he said.Initiatives such as this are run in conjunction with An Taisce’s National Spring Clean which takes place this month. Now an established part of the Donegal County Council’s community calendar, the event gathers momentum each year with more and more people getting involved.

Tinney’s Toys: Keeping kids entertained on a rainy day!

first_imgThere is much talk about Indian summers, but in reality, we don’t get any summers to speak of, let alone Indian ones. In fact, our weather pretty much sucks. Most Irish parents are on high alert for a break in the clouds and the downpours during which they can open the doors and unleash the happiness of children to the outside world. More often than not, we are faced with drizzling Saturdays and wild Sundays where we must entertain the children before they face another week of incarceration in their respective schools. It can be a challenge to survive and have fun in bad weather.Yes, you can don the outdoor clothes and trudge through the rain, splashing in puddles and slipping in the mud, but it is family fun with a definite short life span and a high probability of whinging and complaining. But, there is much you can do inside the warmth of the home to alleviate boredom and to get the heads away from their respective iPhone, Snapchat, Instagram, Tablet, PS2 screens.Make a Fort: Provide an old blanket or sheet and allow some furniture rearranging to make a fort or a tent. Teddies, cars, tea sets and pets will make the new hide-away an exciting place for children to let their imaginations soar and adventures will happen while you sip a nice cup of tea elsewhere.Old Fashioned Non Virtual Games: Good old fashioned board games, like Ludo and snakes and ladders can while away a few hours. A deck of cards can bring the whole family to the games. Water play: Place a few towels (some that are waiting to be washed are ideal) on the kitchen floor. Stand your offspring on a chair so they can reach a sink full of warm water and various pots and utensils. Sure, there will be a bit of a mess and probably a change of clothes but there will be that wonderful creative play, and that peaceful sound of a child playing happily.Playdough: Take Flour, salt, water. Mix. Add a child, a rolling pin and a few cookie cutters, yoghurt pots and anything else which might make it fun. Sit back and let the magic happen.Save a Birthday/Christmas Toy for days like this: These days, children can get a lot of gifts at birthdays and Christmas. If they are young enough, you can ‘hide’ one for a rainy day. Producing a new toy on a dull boring day is much more exciting than when it sat in that original pile of toys.Save Boxes for making cities: Yep. Do that. Save boxes, cereal boxes and egg cartons for making playing with tiny cars much more exciting.Duvets on the couch time: There is nothing more heart warming than the whole family snuggling down with popcorn and snacks to watch that one magical family film together. Check out charity stores for DVDs which you might like to watch together on those rainy days ahead.Rainy days don’t have to mean house-bound misery. With a little imagination, a tolerance of a certain degree of mess and some good humour, you can all survive till the sun shines again. Whenever that may be!

Tri-State Farm Bill Summit

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Sam Custer, Ohio State University ExtensionThe 2018 Farm Bill, passed by Congress and signed by President Trump, now awaits implementation by United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), agencies like the Farm Service Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Services, Risk Management Agency and many others.The passage of the farm bill authorizes funding for many of the federal programs producers utilize throughout the growing season.
