Did no garda in Galway check what people were reported missing around that time, and was no garda in Limerick aware of a body being found in Galway? I’m not satisfied,” added the deceased’s heartbroken Denis Walsh snr.The family have sought permission to exhume Mr Walsh’s remains and lay him to rest finally in his native Limerick.Many other families of missing persons have now been left pondering whether their missing loved one’s remains have been buried or are they still be held in storage.In a statement today, Deputy Duncan Smith said: “In Ireland, there are 823 missing persons files open. However, there is no record of how many remains have been interred in cemeteries, or remain in morgues, as the current rules regulating coroners does not compel them to report unidentified remains to a central system.““There is no one individual or authority with responsibility for collating all the unidentified remains that have been found in this country. We literally do not know how many unidentified remains have been interred in cemeteries or remain in morgues as rules regulating coroners does not compel them to report unidentified remains to a central repository.”“This is set against a total of 823 current missing persons files currently open, the oldest dating back to 1951.“Deputy Smith said coroners “are not compelled“ to report how many unidentified bodies are in the country, “which has led to the perverse situation where families of missing persons must go to individual coroners’ and graveyards to seek information relating to their loved one”.“One family described this process as like going to 40 lost and found desks. At a time of horrendous heartbreak, it’s simply unacceptable that families of missing persons would be treated this way by the State,” he said.“I am calling on the Minister for Justice to right this wrong for families. If coroners cannot find out the ‘how’, they certainly don’t have to find out the who.”“The Corners must be compelled to keep records of unidentified bodies, identifying the cause of their death and opening a system that would reunite the remains of these people with their family and loved ones.““The media has gone above the call of duty for many of these families, searching for answers to these harrowing stories of loss. Instead of having families turn to journalists and the media to solve the mystery of missing persons, the State must play an active role in trying to solve these cases and bring truth to families after the headlines have moved on.” Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League opener Twitter Facebook LimerickNewsAudit of coroners and cemeteries sought to establish number of unidentified remains, in order to help bring closure for families of missing personsBy David Raleigh – March 6, 2021 107 Print Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live last_img read more

Fitting score for champion Spieth

first_img The 21-year-old Texan began steadily enough despite a strong wind that appeared to make a low score nigh-on impossible. Three straight pars were followed by birdies at four of his next five holes which ignited his challenge and sent him clear at the top of the leaderboard. It was a position he did not relinquish and birdies at the 14th, 15th, 17th and 18th carried him to a new course record and victory in his first appearance Down Under. It is the highly-talented Spieth’s second career victory, having broken his duck on the PGA Tour at the John Deere Classic last year. Rod Pampling finished as runner-up on seven-under overall after a commendable 68 while Australian compatriots Brett Rumford and Greg Chalmers were third and fourth respectively. World number three Adam Scott, who lost on the final hole in this event to Rory McIlroy 12 months ago, managed a top-five finish this year. McIlroy’s hopes of defending his title were dashed on Saturday, when a triple and double bogey on successive holes around the turn dropped him from a share of the lead to five shots off the pace, and he finished on two-over after his final-round 72. Spieth admitted afterwards that he had never played better. ” That was definitely the best round I’ve ever played,” he said on the tournament’s official website. “At the start I didn’t think such a round was out there, but the putts kept going in. It was an awesome experience.” Spieth carded 63 in Sydney, a number that will resonate with a lot of Australians as that was the score cricketer Phillip Hughes was on before he died on Thursday from injuries sustained from being hit by a ball in the neck in a domestic game in the same city. It is somewhat poignant that the American finished with a flourish on what would have been Hughes’ 26th birthday on Sunday, a score that lifted him to 13-under overall and a six-shot win at the Australian Golf Club. Jordan Spieth saved his best for last – and produced an unintentional touching moment – as a sensational eight-under-par final round lifted him to victory in the Australian Open. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

The Daily Orange’s unofficial positional breakdown: No. 4: The offensive line

first_imgFootball beat writers David Wilson, Stephen Bailey and Trevor Hass are counting down the days until Syracuse football opens its season against Penn State on Aug. 31. They’ll show you what you can expect from each position as the Orange moves toward its Atlantic Coast Conference debut, with the top position showcased in the DO’s annual season preview guide to be released on Aug. 29. The guide will also feature a more in-depth look at the quarterback position.No. 10: Kick returners/punt returnersNo. 9: The secondaryNo. 8: The defensive lineNo. 7: Tight endsAdvertisementThis is placeholder textNo. 6: The quarterbacksNo. 5: Wide receiversMacky MacPherson stood outside  Manley Field House on Wednesday, proudly discussing the growth of his younger offensive linemates.MacPherson, the senior center, sophomore left guard Rob Trudo and junior left tackle Sean Hickey are all proven, returning starters. The right side of the line — sophomore guard Nick Robinson and sophomore tackle Ivan Foy are the newcomers.But MacPherson likes what he’s seen through training camp.The group will be relied on to protect an inexperienced quarterback and pave the way for a powerful running game.“They’ve all worked their butts off to be the best players they can be,” MacPherson said. “In the same rite, they’ve earned their spots. …  It’s a hard transition going from a No. 2 guy to suddenly being a starter.”Key returning playersMacPherson is one of the best centers in the country. Grandson of legendary Syracuse head coach Dick MacPherson, Macky was named to the watch list for 2013 Rimington Award, given to the nation’s best center.He’s started 25 straight games for the Orange after working primarily as the snapper on field goals and PATs as a freshman.Hickey started all 13 games last season, playing the first four at left tackle and final nine on the right side after Justin Pugh returned from an upper-body injury.Trudo started nine games at left guard last season.“We definitely have a chemistry,” Trudo said. “We started our chemistry way back in spring. Macky’s done a great job of pulling us all together.”Reasons for optimismMacPherson was practically bred to run an offensive line. And he said the system first-year offensive coordinator George McDonald put in place isn’t any more complicated than what Nathaniel Hackett ran last season.So from an organizational standpoint, don’t expect too many errors from the front five.“We don’t have a bunch of checks, a bunch of crazy things going out there,” MacPherson said. “We have a bunch of plays that we can run, and run them well. And that’s something we pride ourselves on.”Hickey’s experience playing the left side last year will be important in protecting the passer. Whether its Drew Allen or Terrel Hunt back in the pocket, they’ll need time to find an open target, especially considering there’s no throw-it-up-there-and-I’ll-get-it kind of guy on the roster.Reasons for concernA whole new right side could be problematic for the Orange.Foy started four games at right guard last year, but manning the tackle spot traditionally means paving the way for the power run game. And Syracuse will be running the ball a lot this year.The 6-foot-4, 313-pound Foy has adjusted to the new role well, MacPherson said. Both Foy and Robinson are carrying their own weight on the line.“They’ve put their nose in the playbook and worked their way to (starting),” MacPherson said.From a health perspective, Trudo missed practice on Aug. 12 with an undisclosed injury. He returned to participate fully the next day, though, as the first-team line has gotten plenty of chances to work together during training camp.The verdictAll in all, the group seems to be doing well under first-year offensive line coach Pat Perles. The man swears more than anyone else on the field, but inside the film room, Trudo raved about his passion and ability to connect with the players.“He’s a mad man,” Trudo said. “He’s crazy, but I love him.”While the offense needs strong play from the front five, the bigger questions truly lie at the quarterback and wide receiver position. If the line stays healthy, it will be a strength on the team.Grade: B+Check back at DailyOrange.com tomorrow to see what position checks in at No. 3.
