Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Advertisement TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick PostMilk Market Email The historic Milk Market interior courtyard reopened in late May with a revised layout after the initial lockdown period and its operations will not be affected by the Level Three restrictions which came into effect this week.Milk Market General Manager, David Fitzgerald, said: “As an outdoor venue we can continue to operate in a very safe, open air and regulated environment on Saturdays, with a one-way system from entry gate at Cornmarket Row to exit at Watergate and we are urging the people of Limerick to continue to support your local farmers market traders who have worked so hard to produce and bring the freshest local produce to your doorstep in the heart of Limerick. “We are fully compliant with all the safety regulations. The Saturday visit to the Milk Market is a Limerick tradition enjoyed by all, and we really appreciate the support of the public to date and would encourage them to consider a visit this weekend to support our stall holders in what has obviously been a very challenging time for everybody.“In common with other essential food suppliers we have had to adapt to the new challenges presented by Covid-19 in recent months and continue to have the health and safety of our customers, traders and staff as our top priority. “We have been operating safely having altered the lay-out of our stalls, increased sanitisation, perspex screens, physical distancing measures and reduced capacity for all stalls in the Milk Market courtyard. We are fully compliant with all Government and HSE protocols thanks to the range of protective measures that have been put in place. “We know businesses and people all over Limerick are coming together to overcome the challenges presented by Covid-19 and we ask the people of Limerick to view their regular Saturday morning visit to the Milk Market as one great tradition that they can still observe and enjoy in a safe and controlled manner,” Mr Fitzgerald said.“All of our stallholders and staff have undertaken additional training and implemented extra Covid-related protocols, so the message we want to get out there is that we are an outdoor market which is open for business, safe and a vital outlet for local food suppliers and small businesses.“We are particularly conscious of giving added protection to the elderly and the vulnerable, so we would advise vulnerable customers that the market is quietest between 8am and 10am Saturdays. “The Market is busiest on Saturday between 10am and 12.30pm, and becomes less again busy between 1pm and close of business at 3pm. We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our traders and staff for their hard work and dedication and to the customers and supporters of the weekly market,” Mr Fitzgerald added.

Saunders and Monroe want Golovkin-Alvarez shot

He knows what he gets out of this fight if he wins and I believe he will deliver.”– ‘Shot at redemption’ –Monroe, 30, is boxing for the first time in a year and has registered two points-wins since being stopped in six rounds by knockout specialist Golovkin.“He took a beating before and if he quit before when there were three belts on the line, he will certainly quit when there’s one belt on the line,” said Saunders.Monroe, from New York, refused to be drawn into trash talk but is hoping Golovkin beats Alvarez so he can have a re-match.“It’s a shot at redemption,” said Monroe. “I think Canelo is just going to win but I want Triple G (Golovkin) to win so I can get him back.“If you look at my fight with Golovkin and his fight against Kell Brook and Danny Jacobs, he doesn’t deal with fast fighters.“I’ve had a 12 week camp for Billy Joe, but I only got six weeks’ notice for Golovkin. I never had big backers and money guys in my corner to make things happen, so when a shot like that comes up you take it.”He added: “Billy Joe has had a great promoter like Frank Warren in his corner. All the fights have been in his own backyard. Willie Monroe Jr. of the US is checked by the referee after being knocked down in the first round by Gennady Golovkin from Kazakhstan during their Middleweight World Championship bout at the Forum Arena in Los Angeles, California on May 16, 2015.

AFP PHOTO JACQUES DEMARTHON / AFP PHOTO / JACQUES DEMARTHON“You can say lack of motivation but when you’re in touching distance of something great, that alone gives me motivation,” Saunders told reporters on a conference call from his training base in Fuerteventura, one of the Spanish Canary Islands.“The way the Ingles go about their business is second to none. My fitness is on a different level. I’m fit enough now to fight 15 rounds, every minute of every round. That alone boosts my confidence by leaps and bounds.“I know what is around the corner, I want to test myself against one of the greats. Willie had his chance (against Golovkin in May, 2015). I want to beat Willie Monroe in a better way than Golovkin did.”Golovkin, 35, and Alvarez, 27, are recognised as the best middleweights in the division and Saunders thinks the champion will prevail this weekend.“I think it will be a very close fight but Canelo looks like he has overdone it in training, he looked fatigued in training and he’s overdone it,’ said Saunders, from Hertfordshire, northwest of London.ADVERTISEMENT WATCH: Streetboys show off slick dance moves in Vhong Navarro’s wedding Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

OGC releases report on 2017 Todd Energy Well Fire

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The B.C. Oil and Gas Commission has released a report on the 2017 well fire at a facility owned by Todd Energy near Wonowon.On December 3, 2017, workers heard a loud bang followed by a gas release from a well site north of Wonowon.  Only 83 seconds after the gas release, a fire started at the facility.The report released by the OGC suggests the incident was caused by human error when installing the bull plug on the north casing flange of the wellhead.  The report says “Had the threads of the bull plug been fully engaged in the north casing flange, it is unlikely that well control would have been lost.” “The investigation was not able to identify who installed the bull plug in the north casing flange or when it was installed. Based on interviews, the bull plug may have been installed within 24 hours of when the incident occurred, but this could not be verified.”The fire started on December 3, and it wasn’t until December 22, 2017, when the incident was over, and crews were stood down.  A total of 36 people were working on the site at the time of the incident, and thankfully no one was injured.The report says the collection of evidence was difficult due to the fire and the length of the incident.  “Physical evidence recovered from the site included the wellhead from the ‘0’ well (the first of five wells on the property), a two-inch bull plug that was found at the base of the wellhead and the backplate of the pressure gauge that was installed on the well. The backplate of the pressure gauge was recovered shortly after the incident by TECL (Todd Energy) and was subsequently misplaced during the emergency response effort.“Bull plug recovered from base of the ‘0’ well showing damage on first two threads. – OGCThe Oil and Gas Commission has directed Todd Energy to develop a procedure to ensure wellhead components are assembled by competent personnel and that connections are inspected and documented before being pressurized.  The Commission says Todd Energy has already implemented a wellhead checklist.The report also says Todd Energy must do ongoing monitoring of groundwater to show that remediation from the fire has been completed.
