I’m absolutely delighted that our promise to the families and descendants of the men who worked in the docks, can now be fulfilled.“Work will commence shortly on the monument, which has been commissioned, and we are very hopeful for completion before Christmas”.The site on which it will be erected is on the riverside quay, opposite the former ESB offices, on Honan’s Quay.Cllr Long confirmed that the committee will also proceed with producing memorial scrolls on velum, recording the name and employment periods of former dockers, which will be presented to their descendants.A spokesperson for City Hall said that the Limerick sculptor, Michael Duhan, originally from Wolfe Tone Street, whose father worked in the docks, has been commissioned to execute the work, and she also confirmed their optimism for private investment.last_img read more

Executive Board of BiH’s Football Association decided will Prosinecki continue to be the Head Coach

first_imgSession of the Executive Board of the Football Association of Bosnia and Herzegovina (BiH) in Sarajevo on Tuesday analyzed the results so far of the “A” selection in the qualifying matches for the 2020 European Championships.Particular attention was paid to the analysis of the work of the “A” selection staff, after the coach Robert Prosinecki announced his resignation in the future after the match with the Armenian national team.As the resignation of the selectors was not formally submitted in writing, all relevant circumstances in the matter were discussed at the session. Adequate measures have been taken to address the new situation, based on the analysis and opinion of the Technical Committee of the NS / FS BiH, as well as other elements related to professional work.After analyzing and identifying the possible causes that put our “A” selection in the difficult position of achieving direct placement through qualification at EURO 2020, a discussion was opened in which members of the Executive Board took part.A framework work plan for the next period has been drawn up with the aim of finding the best solutions in the direction of accomplishing the task, placement of “A” selection for the 2020 European Championship.Considering the objective situation and the current state of affairs, and taking into account the real circumstances and qualitative arguments, it was concluded that the Executive Board gives full support to selector Robert Prosinecki until the end of the EURO 2020 qualification cycle, as defined in the signed contract.With certainty, changing the selectors at the moment would not have a positive effect, and our chances of placement through the group stage are still possible, realistic and achievable.last_img read more
