US matches to take CPL T20 to new level

first_imgCRICKET:GEORGETOWN, Guyana (CMC):With matches set to be played in the United States market for the first time, Caribbean Premier League communications director, Peter Breen, believes the high profile Twenty20 tournament is set for a major take-off this year.Since its inception in 2013, the tournament has been played across the six territories of the competing franchises, but organisers have slated fixtures for Florida during this year’s campaign.”It’s very clear with the talent on display, both local talent and international talent have been contracted and that’s a massive vote of confidence from the wider cricketing public that the Caribbean Premier League is unique, it’s the ‘biggest party in sport’ as we all know,” Breen told the Guyana Times.”It’s incredible vibe and an incredibly fun place, but with serious cricket on the field and people want to be part of that.”He continued: “It’s a very exciting tournament to be a part of. I think it’s a massive year for cricket full stop. It would have started with the Big Bash into the various little tournaments that have been happening and I think with the growth and movement to America that opens up a whole new avenue of possibilities for West Indies cricket and for CPL.”There’s a lot of work to be done to ensure we deliver an outstanding tournament because that’s the level we want to achieve. We want to achieve an outstanding tournament and we’re very confident in our abilities to do so and we know that it will be very, very competitive, particularly looking at the talent of the players who are going to be involved this year.The CPL has been a huge success, turning out capacity crowds in most venues and managing to attract some of the world’s finest Twenty20 players like Kevin Pietersen, Kumar Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene.Last year alone, the tournament experienced massive growth in numerical terms in attendance — a development Breen said organisers were hoping to sustain.”It’s a tournament that’s definitely growing year on year and we know that in terms of social media, in terms of the global viewership as well,” he pointed out.”Last year 302,000 came through the turnstiles for CPL- that was a growth of 44 per cent. It is lovely to think we can sustain that crowd, but I’m not sure if we physically can, given the size of the stadia, but it is definitely a step in the right direction.”For this year’s edition, the likes of South African superstar AB de Villiers, New Zealander Brendon McCullum and Australia’s Shane Watson, are all expected to feature.The tournament is scheduled to bowl off in June, but organisers are yet to announce fixtures.last_img read more

Review: A step back in time for a Celtic Feast Night

first_imgRachel McLaughlin attends the Celtic Feast Show at An Grianan Hotel in Donegal to sample the atmosphere of the historic spectacular:It’s easy to get caught up in the fun and traditional fayre of the Celtic Feast Show when so many details suggest you’ve stepped back in time for a night. I visited the An Grianan Hotel in Burt last weekend to join one of these famous events they host and to discover another side to Donegal’s history.It all feels very Game of Thrones-like to be sitting at a long table in a round hall with free flowing wine and the swell of traditional tunes.This Celtic Feast has music, dancing and plenty of indulgence like scenes from the famous medieval show, but the night has a touch of magic and mystery that is truly Irish. Celtic Feast Show banquet hallEmma Rose Callaghan plays the Goddess Danu, who sweeps onto the stage between courses to trace the mythological story of the Tuatha de Dannan – a tribe who have long been associated with An Grianan Aileach.Goddess DanuBattle ReenactmentArlene McLaughlin’s ‘Siamsa Gael Dance Troupe’Arlene McLaughlin’s ‘Siamsa Gael Dance Troupe’ keep things lively with spirited dancing, while two performers from the Magnus Viking Association storm the room at one stage to reenact a thrilling battle. The staff at the An Grianan all join in the display by wearing Celtic tunics and dress. It all looks the part in the darkened room that is filled with mystic lighting and sounds as we dine. The feast itself is a lavish step back in time. Guests are welcomed by a warming tipple of mead on arrival at reception, where everyone’s excitement rises as two costumed characters stalk the room and take photos with sinister props. Mead receptionOnce we entered the dining room we started with a filling bowl of beef and vegetable broth with homemade bread. Main course is a choice of chicken or ham on the bone – both very traditional but very good. The apple and rhubarb crumble was simple but simply divine. StarterMain CourseDessertGuests get a cup of wine for each course too – just enough to inspire a few to get up and dance to compete to be crowned king or queen of the night. Watch the video below for some excellent efforts, as well as highlights from all the night’s entertainment.You might think a Celtic Feast Show is something for tourists only, but the guests were a mix of locals and visitors from the likes of the US and Europe. As a Donegal native, I found it all the more special to be seeing history come alive in the very location where the legends were born.You’ll get to know your fellow feasters during the mead reception and when you’re sitting together at shared banquet tables – which makes it all the better craic at the afterparty in the Fort Bar. An Grianan HotelI’d really recommend taking advantage of the offer to stay overnight at the An Grianan following the feast. If you do stay, you can then jive the night away in the bar! (We were treated to the brilliant Peter Donegan / Me, Myself and I last weekend.)The Celtic Feast Nights all take place on weekends so it’s a great excuse to turn the nights out into a mini-break away at the hotel. The next day you can have a delicious breakfast in the Old Church Restaurant before driving to the top of the famous mountain to see the Grianan stone fort in all its glory. You can appreciate the historic fort so much more after seeing the colourful stories acted out the night before at the feast.Grianan of Aileach. Photo by Rachel McLaughlinGrianan of AileachIf you’re visiting Donegal for the next Bank Holiday weekend or thinking about a little staycation – then this is one night out that is always going to be legendary!

DONEGAL SFC PREVIEW: DUNGLOE V TERMON

first_imgDungloe will look to their inspirational skipper Noel McBride on Saturday when they clash with Termon in the Donegal SFC. Pic courtesy of jmac.ieWhile the excitement of Donegal’s epic run to the All-Ireland final had the county captivated all summer, it’s back to the bread and butter this weekend with the start of the Donegal SFC.What better way to get over the hangover of last Sunday’s heart-breaking defeat, by enjoying a whole host of top class championship encounters over the weekend.Donegal Daily will be previewing every single Donegal SFC fixture this weekend, and we’ll start by looking at the meeting of Dungloe and Termon. Both sides have had contrasting fortunes this season, Dungloe have had a remarkable campaign.They romped to the Division Two league title to cement their return to top-flight football next season.What was truly impressive by Tony Boyle’s side was the fact they remained unbeaten all year in the division.In what is a competitive and difficult division, the fact they remained unbeaten for the league’s entirety shows the quality and resilience in the Dungloe squad. Tony Boyle and his management side have bloodied plenty of youth this season and that augurs well for the future.They still have plenty of experience in their ranks too, Raymond and Adrian Sweeney are still a huge influence for Dungloe, while the likes of Shaun Sharkey, Ciaran Sharkey, Noel McBride and Adrian Hanlon have plenty of senior championship experience.Corey Gallagher was on the fringes of the Donegal Senior panel last season and Termon will need to curb his attacking threat from deep.Termon have struggled since gaining promotion to Division One this season, and they currently prop up the table.It looks likely that they’ll be relegated back to Division Two, but Termon have a great championship pedigree and will no doubt raise their game this weekend. The return of Christy Connaghan has boosted the Termon charge, the former Finn Harps man has been plagued with a succession of knee injuries over the last number of years.However, since his return Connaghan has looked hugely impressive, he fired Termon to their last county final in 2008 and is an expert from dead balls.The loss of James Doherty is a blow for Darren Gibson’s side, the influential half-back has emigrated to Dubai and will their entire championship campaign.Dungloe have huge momentum and home advantage, and while it certainly won’t be easy for the Rosses men, Dungloe should have enough to get over the line.

Popband Ponytail Holders, Ponytail Holders – Blondie.

first_imgMy wife and daughters are delighted with this option to hair bands. They are small a lot more than elasticated ribbons but they do the job seriously perfectly, with out catching or tangling the hair like a normal band.A good set of quality hair bands in great pastel colours. The set slips nicely into any purse the bands truly keep my hair jointly effectively for a best ponytail every single time.These woven elastic ponytail holders are very well known likely mainly because they come in these types of a large array of colors, textures and designs furthermore they never tear at your hair like regular hair bobbles when you take away them. Also they you should not leave dents or kinks in your hair as extended as your hair is comprehensively dry in advance of use. I like the reality that they never give me a headache and will not slash off circulation in my wrists eitherunfortunately i are not able to get previous the fact that you can get a metre of fold more than elastic for about £1 and easily make four hair ties from it.Comments from buyers“Great idea, but not quite strong enough for my really thick hair., Finally, a ponytail holder that satisfies my ten year old daughter., Popband Ponytail Holders – Blondie., Pretty and useful, Effective ponytail bands, stay in place without damaging hair, Stylish and practical.”Finally, a ponytail holder that satisfies my 10 calendar year outdated daughter. . For a 10 calendar year previous my daughter is very significant on fashion and seeking very good (obviously inside of restrictions). She also spends a great deal of time on her hair, making an attempt out several hair styles that she sees both on tv set or on the head of my son’s eighteen year outdated girlfriend. Just one of my daughters pet hates are the latest (and in her belief bad) choice of ponytail holders obtainable in our ‘neck of the woods’ specifically west wales. I have acquired her scrunches that unravel, ‘ugly’ elastic ties that snap and ribbon ties that refuse to hold up her hair for extended that about 30 seconds. Then we have the ‘popband’ in spectacular colors and designs, this specific pack consists of 5 in delicate silvery pastel shades (two product, beige, dusky pink and taupe). These ties are produced from soft and stretchy materials tied with a knot. The stitching seems powerful and the seams properly finished. A very little pricey i know, but really worth the excess price tag for halting the rows just before university, when my daughter can’t get her hair ‘just right’. These popband ponytail holders are unquestionably fantastic, they glimpse beautiful, they are incredibly modern and most of all they do precisely what they are supposed to do … maintain my daughters thick hair in any of the variations that she wants.These stretchy bands operate really properly for my granddaughters,who are five and have high-quality,curly prolonged hair. It can be commonly fairly a position to continue to keep their hair tied back as most hairbands before long occur undone and drop out,but popbands very last a extensive time in their hair but are really simple to get rid of. They hardly ever appear to be to get tangled in the hair,or to depart marks even if they are in all working day. They also make a cute minor bracelet to use on the wrist,(mine or theirs)so you usually have one particular useful if you need to have it. They are pricier than most,but they are really helpful and really don’t are likely to get shed,so a pack of 5 lasts a very long time.Effective ponytail bands, continue to be in spot with out damaging hair. I received these for my daughter who has extensive, thick hair. She gets by a lot of ponytail bands as she has to do them up tightly to continue to be in, and they promptly snap under the pressure, so i hoped these might be a good answer. The popband ponytail holders are about 1. five cm large, and glimpse like marginally satiny ribbons, but stretchy. They are not as stretchy as normal elastics, and daughter thought she would not be in a position to twist them tightly more than enough to continue to be in location – nevertheless, they really don’t slide down her hair and continue to be in even when twisted very loosely. This is why they you should not depart these kinds of a crease mark on your hair, and will not harm the hair as substantially as some elastic bands. Our only criticism is about the overall look of this ‘blondie’ set – they do seem a little bit like previous tights/stockings. With the knot twisted underneath the ponytail and hidden, they appear okay, like beige ribbons, but i wouldn’t get this colour yet again.Popband ponytail holders – blondie. . My tester for this set of ponytail holders has lengthy, thick hair and is a very energetic human being, so carrying her hair in a ponytail has been a life time practice – i believe in her judgement on these totally. She was initially doubtful about this popband established, but was reasonably delighted with the way they held her hair firmly in spot the stretchy product is smooth but proficiently functional one particular plus stage she designed was that as opposed to some types of holder there are no metal rings on these which can capture or destruction her hair and she liked the idea of just placing them about her wrist when not in use as they seem far better than her normal black band holders. She wore one of the holders all day and even though this was a relatively restricted take a look at, she felt it passed pretty effectively and is content with them. They do glance nice when in location and even though this colour array would probably – on the whole – accommodate blonde rather than my friend’s brown hair, they are a great selection of organic and neutral colours and tones. We had been the two in settlement that the pricing is a tiny steep, but comparable with some identical, fashionable hairbands on the current market. A nice sufficient set of attractive and simple holders. For her assistance and evaluation.Excellent thought, but not pretty sturdy more than enough for my seriously thick hair. . First and foremost these are excellent to your conventional elasticated hair bands and even snag-totally free elasticated bands as they are usually threads woven all-around an inner tube of elastic which above time can catch hairs and rip them out if entangled particularly if with a metallic be a part of. This is like the hair tie equivalent of spandex, the cloth is woven with elasticated fibres offering the full matter extend and nothing at all to snag on. As anyone with incredibly pretty thick hair especially in the ‘kitchen’ or lower back of the head i am endlessly shedding strands right here and there enravelled in standard hair bands, i have not misplaced one particular hair after extended even sleeping use of these. This established is especially good as it is in ‘blonde’ helpful shades which can assistance give a much more subtle seem to your ponytail. That would be 5 stars for me but, there are extra flaws that convey the rating down for me. The ties them selves are a minimal free in the knots and you have to press the knots limited in any other case your pony will slip as you will not likely be equipped to wrap it about adequate periods to get a limited hold. Even with the knot tightened i was nevertheless a bit sad with the tautness, and experienced to redo my ponytail a several periods around a few of hrs because of to slippage, i wouldn’t depend on these holding my thick hair up for an extended time where it has to seem perfect but they are great for an typical/casual surroundings. Also the little knot can get frustrating, i know it can be a ‘thing’ now to have decorative bits back again on your hair ties (bobbles, bunny ears, cloth to seem like a correct scarf tie etcetera) but below it is just a very little of absolutely nothing and a little bit troublesome when you operate your hand back as a result of your hair. I can also see these having a brief everyday living-use as staying like spandex, spandex will give above time and tension meaning you may quickly stop up with saggy hair bands exacerbating the wrapping and assist troubles.These do appear highly-priced for a pack of hair bobbles but i would buy them all over again, for a couple of motives. I like that they are at ease to use on your wrist for extended periods of time with no cutting off your circulation. I are likely to tie my hair again only when i have to have to and it is handy to have a person on me. With the distinct layouts they glance awesome to have on as a braclet and my nine year outdated enjoys them. She wears one particular to school then can tie her hair back for pe. I was sceptical that they would be sturdy ample to maintain back again my hair as it’s incredibly thick but it copes really effectively. Potentially not quite as tight as an standard bobble but isn’t going to go away a large kink in my hair possibly so swings and roundabouts. I feel these could unquestionably acquire off as a style accent amid more youthful women as they are classy and realistic.These look extremely fairly on your wrist, with the shiny aspect catching the light-weight, and they are effortless sufficient to set in my hair. The are pretty a type, comfortable, hair band, and not severe on my fingers or hair to use. I just take situation with their ‘no bump’ statements. Normal hair bands will develop a actual mark in my hair when i set it up and i was excited by the probability of hair bands which did not do that. For my extensive, extremely fantastic, hair i uncovered that the promises never maintain up. I however got a bump in my hair. Certain it wasn’t as substantially of a bump as normal but i nonetheless felt my hair appeared a bit silly when i took the band out. Perhaps other, thicker, hair sorts would uncover much more success with these bands i find them a bit as well free with 3 turns and also restricted with 4 to keep working with them over my typical hair bands, specified that the two leave a mark in my hair from use. I imagine i will stick to sporting these on my wrist.This is a cutely packaged established of 5 hair bands designed from comfortable, stretchy material with a bit of a sheen to it. They arrive in pale shades which mix in really very well with lighter hair and pores and skin tones. If you want some thing far more colourful, you can also get the popbands in brilliant, patterned shades. The bands are simple to wind close to your ponytail, while you do have to set them spherical a handful of situations to get a limited adequate fit. After they’re on restricted, they come to feel secure and maintain hair again properly. For me these fix two issues. First, they allow me tie my hair back just after straightening it, without having leaving a significant kink in it which ruins all the exertion of straightening. And next, they permit me have on a hair band on my wrist, which is handy, without it sensation far too limited and slicing off all circulation to my handthese are very and simple, though they are undoubtedly dear way too so i hope they are going to last.I would bye in excess of standard hair ties any working day.I was unhappy in these popband ponytail holders. I don’t know what i anticipated but by some means just a minimal extra than a handful of strips of elasticated materialeach tied in a knot. Its legitimate the colors ranging from product to bronze ended up very as was the shine on the substance. I however am older i asked my granddaughters opinion. They imagined they could be handy and they surely did not hurt or pull substantially hair away when removed. They thought putting on them round your wrist was fairly a fantastic notion as they could be taken off or set on at will.These are really really elasticated bands, with a tender satin come to feel and end to assist cease them snagging up and harmful your hair. I have extensive ( waistline duration ) thick hair and when i utilized this band to tie it up the band did slip a very little, leading to my pony tail to droop – one thing i fastened with a quick pull up, so no major difficulty. Just after use they do glimpse a little stretched and warn. They also do not come with washing instructions, which is disappointing as you will have to have to wash them if you use hair items which will coat them in gunk.They maintain my hair up properly and. They maintain my hair up properly and look definitely adorable. The wide range of colors implies i can match them to my outfits. They also can be worn on the wrist without having leaving that hairband indent.Far too highly-priced and overrated. Excellent ponytail holders accessible in a superior array of colors for a selection of hair colours. They are quite delicate and will not depart kinks in your hair if you only tie it about your hair 2 times. That will not operate on my hair and the bands need tying above three situations or so and this does go away kinks. My hair is not specially skinny possibly. The high-quality is like a smooth garter belt, and i just wouldn’t be in a position to justify spending the cost for 5 parts of extravagant elastic. It really is some thing i would possibly consider shopping for in poundland and even then i’d dilemma the price.It have to be explained, i was not overly impressed when i very first opened this bundle of popband ponytail holders (blondie), since it seemed extremely substantially like someone had just been slicing up outdated pairs of tights and tying a knot in them. 1st impressions do rely, so they have had a ton to do to convince me they are everything a lot more than a designer trend aimed squarely at the teen and yummy yoga mummy fashion group in an now oversupplied industry. So, do they live up to the hoopla on the packet?.Just before observing them, i was not guaranteed if the knot was some type of clever sliding machine that served with the claimed ‘no pull/no damage’ declare, but no – it is really just a knot and you wrap them the very same way you do any hairband. Very well, without examining samples of your hair underneath a microscope, that is a single assert you cannot validate adequately other than by a pretty subjective ‘by eye’ test, so we’ll go away that a person. Do they pull out a lot less hair than standard hairbands?. It would seem so, but once more, which is a little bit of a subjective observation. And how about the pretty massive assert of leaving your hair kink-no cost?.These pop bands are so significantly nicer than the scrunchies and simple hair bobbles i experienced been utilizing. They perform extremely nicely and are seriously wonderful and gentle, and stretchy. The colour designs are definitely nice and glance modern and appealing. They have not snagged at all in my hair, and appear out easily when needed but continue to be in very well though in use. I hadn’t observed this model just before but i would undoubtedly get much more of these. I also have the popband ponytail holders, unicorn variety, which are bolder colours. This blondie pack is wonderful for neutral colours, and as proposed by the title if you have mild or blonde hair they would likely mix in truly nicely. I like the two styles, and total it truly is a wonderful merchandise.last_img read more
