Delight for Dunleavy as Cork City win FAI Senior Cup

first_imgThere was delight for Ballybofey man Johnny Dunleavy as he got his hands on the FAI Senior Cup yesterday following Cork City’s 1-0 win over Dundalk. The former Wolves star is the Cork City captain, but he unfortunately was unable to play any part in the game due to a knee injury he sustained earlier in the season.But despite his absence on the playing pitch, Dunleavy played a big role off it, and was duly asked up to collect the trophy after Sean Maguire’s late injury-time winner in extra-time. Cork avenged last season’s defeat to Dundalk in the FAI Cup final, and cup success is rich reward for John Caulfield’s side who pushed an incredible Dundalk side all the way in their quest for a league title.We’re sure there are some sore head on Leeside this morning, and for the next few days perhaps.Dunleavy posted this picture (above) with the following message on his Facebook timeline, “Bringing this lad back home…some night ahead!!!!”Well done to Johnny and all the Cork City players and staff on a great achievement.  Delight for Dunleavy as Cork City win FAI Senior Cup was last modified: November 7th, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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)last_img read more

Dubais obsession with size answers demand DTCM

first_imgIn Dubai, size really does matter – if only to meet strong demand growth said Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) yesterday.Speaking to buyers before the official opening of this year’s Arabian Travel Market, DTCM deputy director Abdullah Bin Suwaidan warned that any discussion of Dubai’s future is awash with the words ‘biggest’ and ‘largest’.“But behind these words are the numbers – each year growth goes up,” Mr Bin Suwaidan said. “In Dubai, we don’t have low season; we have high season and very high season.”According to Mr Bin Suwaidan, the success of Dubai rests in its reputation as a destination with strong service, safety and infrastructure.“There’s no ‘impossible’ in this city,” he said.Mr Bin Suwaidan told buyers the success enjoyed by today’s Dubai is the result of the foresight of yesteryear.“What we’re seeing today was planned 50 to 60 years ago.”Likewise, said Mr Bin Suwaidan, Dubai’s current visions of its future will serve Dubai 50 years from now.“The challenge is making the reality out of the vision.”Despite Dubai’s 573 hotels and hotel apartments, equating to 70,955 rooms, there seemed little question from ATM buyers of Dubai’s seemingly inevitable growth, questions asked of Mr Bin Suwaidan more concerned with Dubai’s ability to cope with such demand.The 2011 Arabian Travel Market is being held in Dubai over this week.Stay tuned to e-Travel Blackboard who are on location in Dubai.
