first_imgBuncrana GAA News:COMHGHAIRDEAS!!Well done to our young Clubman, Caolan O Neill, who represented his school, Scoil Iosagain, and his club when he took part in the Cumann Na mBunscoil game at half time in Sunday’s All Ireland Hurling Final. Senior Buncrana 0-9  Milford 2-10Buncrana got off to a great start scoring 3 points within the first 10 minutes, however Milford came back quick to level the scoreboard, it was then Tit for Tat until the 27th and 29th minute where Milford succeeded 2 goals and going in half time 2-6 to 0-6.  the 2nd half was a low scoring affair with Buncrana getting points in the 41st, and 44th and 57th minute was enough to close the gap with Milford coming back to score 4 pointsReserves  Buncrana 1 16   Milford 3 07Buncrana extended their winning streak to 10 games today with a 3 point victory over Milford.  With 10 points up and Buncrana playing against the Breeze in the 2nd half  allowed Milford to comeback and leave a 3 point margin at full-time Senior Ladies  Buncrana 1 10  Naomh Conaill 2 6A reason to celebrate became real on Sunday afternoon as The Scarvey ladies became Junior A County Champions.  With Buncrana going in at half time 0-5 to 1-0 with great scores from Tasha Craig, Michaela Mullan, Paula Mc Grory and Ella McLaughlin gave these ladies the confidence to go out in the 2nd half… Starting off with 3 points in the 1st three minutes set the tone for Buncrana with a goal to follow putting Buncrana in front  1-8 to 1-0 within five minutes.  However this scoreline did not deter N Conall who fought back fast and hard leaving all sides level 2-6 to 1-9  with 2 minutes to go, Tasha Craig scored the last score from a free. Within seconds of full-time N Conaill was rewarded a penalty which was saved by hero goalie Amy Casey bringing the title down the road to The ScarveyU16 Football  Buncrana 3 08  Milford 3 10Buncrana U16s played their final group game away to Milford on Monday night last.  A good start saw the away team go into a 1.1 to no score lead, however it was a false dawn as the home side grew into the game.  After goaling from a penalty the Milford lads controlled the remainder of the half against a lacklustre Buncrana team who were 2.6 to 1.2 behind at the break.  The Buncrana boys rallied well at the start of the second half and responded with 2.2 inside ten minutes.  The remainder of the game was nip and tuck and ultimately Milford’s third goal proved the decisive score and they ran out winners on a score line of 3.10 to 3.8.  The result means that the sides will meet again on Monday night (7th September) in Buncrana in the first playoff game and the Scarvey boys know that it will take a much improved all round performance to overturn the result.U16 Hurling  Bun Cranncha   Aodh Ruadh The Club’s u16 Hurlers claimed their place in the County League Final on Thursday night with a comfortable home win against a gallant Aodh Ruadh, Ballyshannon side.  Next up on Thursday evening is the final against old rivals Burt(venue to be confirmed).  Great news was also received by this squad that David Cullen, of Red C Marketing and Research,has kindly sponsored a new rig that the boys will dawn for the first time in the final.  This squad would like to pay tribute to David and all the staff at RED C for the sponsorship and to Club Equipment Officer, Elizabeth Ann Nelson, for sorting it all out.U16 Girls  Buncrana 1 09  Malin 1 06Our U16 girls played an away game against Malin on Tuesday evening.  It was a very tough but fair, tightly fought game, with each side cancelling out each other’s scores.  With the score just 0-3 to 0-4 to Buncrana at half time, we knew the second half was going to be every bit as tough.  Our girls got the second half off to a great start, scoring a point with their first attack.  Malin didn’t give up and came back at us, and the scoring went tit for tat again.  Even after we scored a goal, Malin replied with a goal.  It was a very tense and exciting game, but our girls managed to score a late three points which Malin had no reply to.  With the game finishing 1-6 to 1-9 in our favour, it was a well-earned victory.  It would be impossible to pick “a girl of the match” as every single girl, including the subs gave it their all, with Vanessa Nelson in goal and the defenders throwing their bodies in the way of every ball to keep Malin from scoring.  The defenders used the ball wisely feeding the midfield, who in turn supplied plenty of the ball to the forward line.  The scoring was shared out from the midfielders to the full forwards.  Bernie Devlin (1-2), Sophie Roe (0-4), Leah Henderson (0-2), and Lia Gallanagh (0-1).  Even if we hadn’t have won on Tuesday night, the way the girls played football was very impressive and bodes well for the future.  A big thank you to all the parents who helped supply lifts to the away games.U12 Hurlers  Buncrana 2 09  Burt 3 06 The U12 hurlers had their A final on Thursday night against Burt. It was a heart stopping match from the ball was thrown in until the final whistle. It was goal for goal and point for point, with some brilliant scores and fantastic frees taken. It was a really physical and ruthless game from the start. The Buncrana boys were extremely strong and determined and they never lost heart and this showed more so when it went to extra time. Even though the two teams fought hard for the first 40 minutes when it went into extra time, there was no easing off and it still ended up a draw when the whistle was blown.U11 BoysOur U11 boys welcomed Burt to The Scarvey on Tuesday night, A great display from our Lads helped them achieve a convincing win…..U10 GirlsThe U10 girls travelled to MacCumhaill’s on Saturday for a challenge game and, although scores aren’t kept, our girls were the stronger side and dominated for most of the game, considerably outscoring the home side.  This side has come on in leaps and bounds this year and with only 3 out of the 15 overage next year, we will be a force to be reckoned with!  Mac Cumhaill’s to their credit never gave up and battled right to the end with a real comeback effort in the final quarter!Well done girls!U9 Boys.Our u9 boys got back to their winning ways on Saturday against neighbours Burt.  With good entertaining games, from start to finish with loads of good football from our future starts.  Next up St Eunans next Saturday in the Scarvey.Ongoing Repairs/Maintenance WorksThe Club is always looking for help with ongoing repairs/maintenance works.  If you have a skill that could be useful please volunteer your time if you can.  Contact Sean on 0862388071.LottoCongratulations to Club person Cathy McCarron whose numbers came up in the Club Lotto – 4, 6, 9 and 29.  Don’t spend it all in the one shop!!  Lotto draw takes place every Monday afternoon in O Flaherty’s.  If you see any of our volunteers around the pubs, please support by buying a lotto.Training Times – New and Old Players Always WelcomeFootballU14 Boys Tuesdays (indoor fitness) 5-6 and Fridays 7pm – 8pmU13 Boys Wednesday 7pm – 8pm and Fridays 7.00pmU11 Boys Fridays 6.30pmU8 & U9 Boys Fridays 6.30pmU6 Boys & Girls Fridays 6.30-7.30pmU8 & U10 Girls Saturdays 10.30-11.30amU12, 14 & 16 Girls Mondays 7-8pmHurlingU8 & U10 Sundays 11-12noonU12 Tuesdays 7- 8.30pmU16 Wednesdays 6.30pmClub MerchandiseElizabeth Anne is now taking orders on the first Tuesday of every month.

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest For those in previous generations, getting a handle on understanding the purchasing behaviors of the Millennial Generation can be somewhat vexing. At no point in recent generations has there been a more stark generational difference. This is largely due to changes in technology, a tough job market when entering the workforce and an increasingly global culture of inclusion and acceptance.“Millennials believe in fairness, inclusivity, access, and discovery. I define ‘Millennial’ based on mindset. You can look at a millennial by birth based on birth year — born in the late 70s to the late 90s — or you can look at it based upon behavior,” said Jeff Fromm, president of Future Cast and co-author of multiple books about marketing to Millennials. “You can find Millennials in their 50s who share those values, use mobile technology and are consumers of content. They are just as likely to pay for that coffee at Starbucks with their mobile phone as a Millennial-aged consumer is today.”While these generational differences may be of little consequence to some in the big scheme of things, people trying to directly market products are finding out how important these differences can be. The purchasing power of the Millennial Generation has quickly become noteworthy to savvy marketers. This has significant agricultural implications.“Millennials have a big interest in food, food culture and where their food comes from. They want access to information and that creates a lot of opportunities for smaller brands that are a lot of times more agile and nimble to create innovative products, provide more access to the sourcing of their products and get a small premium for those unique products,” Fromm said. “It’s a new day where small brands can compete more effectively than the big brands. Brands that get it right create huge sales volume potential around appealing to what Millennials value.”This trend can have tremendous implications for agriculture, particularly for small direct marketers who can sell products that provide the stories, information and experience millennial shoppers are seeking.”While these factors matter more to Millennials than previous generations, price is still important.“Price is hugely important, but Millennials are the ultimate day traders. They will pay a small premium for brands they love and then they will trade down to private label when they don’t see the value. Brands that do it right are able to get that small premium for their products,” he said. “Price is important, but there are ways to compete for Millennial affinity and earn it by using content, technology and other factors that would cause them to love your brand.”One way to appeal to Millennials is to provide an experience that they value.“Experience can mean access to being able to visit my favorite farm where I get my favorite products or it can mean inspired content from small brands that understand the best way to use their products,” Fromm said. “Experience is a way to create affinity and it is certainly important for the Millennial culture that has a desire to discover and learn and is collecting experiential currency along the way.”To find more from Fromm, visit Millenialmarketing.com.last_img read more

first_imgExhorting the government to involve slum dwellers in the development of the city, Campaign for Housing and Tenurial Rights Convenor Varghese Theckanath on Monday said those living on bunds were worried in the wake of canal beautification projects and demanded that they not be relocated. “About 26% of the city population lives in slums, one-third of which are located on canal bunds. The government’s plan to transform canals should not disturb dwellers who have been living on the same lands for decades,” he said at a press conference here. Stating that most slum dwellers were employed in blue collar jobs, he added, “Driving them away from the city would burden their lives and cost them jobs. They are an integral part of the city and the government should ensure they remain so” Vijayawada Slum People’s Federation Convenor Chinni concurred with him and said they were not against the beautification of the city but demanded involvement in it. Calling for relocating slums to neighbouring areas, Housing Rights Network city Coordinator Sanjeev and Monfort Social Institute city Coordinator P. Ravindra Babu said RTI applications had been filed to find out available land for the same. Under threatTo gauge the impact of projects, a survey by the NGOs revealed that more than 36,000 persons of 8,000 families resided in the 31 slums on the bunds of Bandar, Ryves and Eluru canals and Budameru rivulet in the city.last_img read more
