first_imgLiberia allows the use of two currencies for financial transactions: the Liberian dollar and the US dollar. For 40 years from 1944 it was not a problem because the Liberian dollar was on par with the US dollar. One Liberian dollar was equivalent to one US dollar. Then in 1983, military Head of State Samuel Doe introduced a Liberian five dollar coin, and that’s when the Liberian dollar started depreciating. During the civil war paper currency was added to the mix, resulting in further depreciation.Legend has it that when a group of students asked President William V.S. Tubman why he had not switched from the greenback to an indigenous currency, he responded, “Because I do not trust myself.” By that he meant that he did not trust himself not to yield to the temptation of printing money in order for the government to spend money that it did not have.A currency’s exchange rate vis-a-vis other currencies is a measure of inflation. Samuel Doe wanted to give soldiers a huge pay increase and to do other spending that the government could not afford. Someone told him that he could accomplish that by simply minting his own money. As a young man, I remember writing him an open letter pleading with him not to introduce the five dollar coin. I argued, correctly as it turned out, that if the government simply circulated money that was not backed by any productive value, the Liberian dollar would separate from the US dollar and depreciate. And that is exactly what happened.With the introduction of the new coins the Liberian dollar depreciated by 50 percent. You now needed two Liberian dollars to buy one US dollar. Prior to this, the concept of “foreign exchange” was alien to most Liberians. After all, our local currency had been on par with the US dollar. We only had Liberian coins, the largest denomination being one dollar, and the amount in circulation was small compared to US currency. These coins were traded side by side with US coins: quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies.Operating an economy with two different currencies of varying exchange rates is expensive. Households, businesses, NGOs and government have to hold and trade in two currencies. Financial transactions—sales, purchases, loans—-have to be tracked in two currencies. Businesses have to keep their books in two currencies, the government has to collect taxes in two currencies, and so on and so forth. As the economy grows the problems and costs become greater. Understandably, there is a raging debate now about the need for us to adopt a single currency.The question then is which of the two currencies should we adopt, the Liberian dollar or the US dollar? Many of those debating this matter seem to assume that the currency of choice should be the Liberian dollar. I am not so sure. Probably the biggest competitive advantage we have relative to our neighbours is the fact that we use the US dollar. It is freely convertible currency and the currency of choice for international trade. Prices for commodities—oil, minerals, precious metals, etc.—are all denominated in US dollars. Moreover, using the US dollar opens up all kinds of opportunities that we have not yet fully tapped to bring in more foreign direct investment. In addition to extractive industries we should be looking at ourselves as a regional hub for manufacturing, banking, insurance and other financial services. In the 1970s, Liberia was the transshipment capital of West Africa. We lost that position as a result of our civil war and higher taxation of transshipment transactions. But there is no reason why we cannot reclaim that position. Many would argue that it was our use of the US dollar that prevented our economy being ravaged even more than it was by the civil war. If we settle on the Liberian dollar, we can expect an acceleration in the depreciation of our currency. Ghana presents a cautionary tale. When the decision was taken by the Kufuor administration to re-denominate the cedi, it was trading at 10,000 cedis to one dollar. The new cedi started out in 2008 at 90 pesewas (i.e. less than one cedi) to the dollar. Today, it is trading at almost 4 cedis to the dollar. Within the last year, it has been depreciating at a fast pace as the Ghanaian government continues to print money in order to spend money it doesn’t have.So, If you think ninety Liberian dollars to one US dollar is bad, brace yourself for the Liberian dollar to depreciate exponentially should we decide to move to the Liberian dollar as the single currency.

first_img…2 homelessTwo persons are now homeless after fire destroyed their home at Lancaster, Corentyne, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) on Thursday afternoon.What is left of the Corentyne, Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) homeThe fire started around 17:00h.Sharajie Issacs, called “Burnice”, 92, and her 28-year-old granddaughter were forced to watch as the flames ravaged their home.Reports are that flames were first seen coming from one of the bedrooms in the upper flat.According to persons in the area, it is suspected that the fire may have started after a power surge in the area.However, initial reports from investigators stated that a child might have caused the fire.Nonetheless, the woman’s son, Jerry, who lives next door, rubbishes those claims.“They have their information wrong. No kid was playing with matches. The fire started on the east side on the upstairs and nobody was upstairs. Once we come down in the morning, nobody goes back upstairs until in the night to sleep. I don’t know how they get that. They told us that the fire start from a wire. I had just left and go back home and about fifteen minutes after I saw the fire. I see it coming from two bedrooms on the east side,” Jerry, one of 14 siblings who grew up in the house, said.At the time, Issacs and her granddaughter were in the lower flat.Issacs, who returned from the United States two months ago, estimated millions of dollars in losses. She said that the building was not insured and they were unable to save anything.However, a unit from the Rose Hall Town Fire Department was able to prevent the flames from spreading to nearby houses. An investigation has been launched.The investigation is continuing.Only last Wednesday, a utility pole in Vryman’s Erven, New Amsterdam, also in the region, was on fire for about 20 minutes before GPL was able to take the power off, allowing the fire service to put out the blaze.Residents in the neighbouring community reported that for months, they have been complaining to GPL about two black boxes on the post and frequent low voltages they have been experiencing.According to one resident, when reports are made to GPL when the power is shut off in their house, a crew from the power company would come and fix the two black boxes, and sometimes power would come back and only half of the house would have power.“Those are the two boxes that causing the whole Vryman’s Ervin to have low voltage. Well now they will have to replace them and bring new ones,” the resident said. (Andrew Carmichael)last_img read more

first_img1 Newly appointed Sunderland head coach Dick Advocaat admits his side need to improve tactically after tasting defeat to West Ham in his first game in charge at the club.The Black Cats frustrated the Hammers with a solid defensive performance at Upton Park but eventually fell to a 1-0 loss thanks to Diafra Sakho’s 88th minute winner.Advocaat, the former Rangers boss parachuted in until the end of the season following the dismissal of Gus Poyet, had named an attacking line-up, though Jermain Defoe wasted the best of the early chances and defender Patrick Van Aanholt saw a second-half goal-bound effort well saved by Adrian.It was an improved display from the struggling Black Cats, but the Dutch boss says there will be more to come from the team as he settles into his role, and looks to steer the club clear of the drop.In just three days you cannot change too much, but now I have the time to try something,” said Advocaat, whose side sit just one point above the bottom-three.“Some players have to improve more tactically when we have the ball, so I will take that to the training ground.”On the performance in east London, Advocaat admitted he was surprised by West Ham’s winning goal, having contained the hosts well for the majority of the clash.“It is difficult to play against their long balls, but we did really well,” he added.“If Defoe scores they have to take more risks and we would have got more space.“But I did not expect the goal from West Ham because everything was under control.“The luck was not on our side. Everybody saw it [the foul] and not the referee, but I do not want to complain.”Adam Johnson also came off the bench for the Black Cats in the closing stages.The 27-year-old forward has been bailed until April 28 following his arrest on suspicion of sexual activity with a girl under 16 and returned to training this week following a club suspension.“I spoke with him in the week. Life goes on. He did well,” Advocaat said.“He is a very good player. I was happy I could bring him on. That is good to know for the game versus Newcastle.”Sunderland have won four Tyne-Wear derbies in a row, Johnson scoring in three of those including a stoppage-time winner earlier this season.

NORWALK – Testimony concludes today in a preliminary hearing for four young men, one from Whittier and three from Pico Rivera, charged with more than 20 felony counts connected to an alleged gang rape of a 13-year-old girl inside a public restroom at a Pico Rivera park last year. At the first day of the hearing on Friday, the victim, now 14, testified that at least two of the defendants, Ricardo Gonzalez and Nathan Edward Red, both 16 of Pico Rivera, were present in the restroom but did not take part in the attack. The victim also had trouble identifying her attackers, she testified, explaining that several young men had first plied her with alcohol, then grabbed her and dragged her into the restroom where she was raped by at least 10 of them. At the conclusion of the preliminary hearing, a Norwalk Court judge will rule on whether there is enough evidence to hold any or all of the defendants for trial on on which charges.

first_imgArsenal may have found their new Ian Wright in Alexandre Lacazette, Gerard Houllier has told talkSPORT.The Gunners have agreed a club-record £52million deal for the Lyon striker, with the signing expected to be finalised on Wednesday.Houllier has been an advisor to the French club in the negotiations with Arsenal over Lacazette and knows the player’s strengths and weaknesses as well as anyone.And speaking to exclusively to Jim White on talkSPORT, the former Liverpool, Lyon and France boss backed the 26-year-old to be a big hit at the Emirates Stadium as he compared him to legendary goalscorer Wright.“He is very mobile, very quick, good in short spaces, has good skill and he scores goals,” said Houllier.“He was the top scorer in France in 2014-15, the best player in the league in 2015 and has been the best French scorer over the last three seasons.“He scores more than 25 goals every season. One thing he will bring to Arsenal is goals. His main asset is to score goals.“He has good technique, is good at using short spaces and is a hard-working player. He can attack, he can defend quickly. I’m not surprised Arsene fancied him.“He will fit in their game. He will suit their passing game, the way they build up, their approach. He is very good near the box.“He is a bit like Ian Wright really. You don’t seem to see him and then suddenly he moves.”Arsenal are breaking their transfer record to sign Lacazette, but Houllier believes it is good business considering Manchester United could pay up to €90m (£78m) to sign Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata this summer, He added: “When you think Anthony Martial cost €80million Morata is about to cost €90million… Morata hasn’t scored as many goals as Lacazette.“Morata has played 130 games and scored only 47 goals.”last_img read more

first_imgDonegal Junior LeagueReports Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionMilford United 0 St. Catherines 3 St. Catherines gained a well-deserved victory in Milford on Sunday. They took the lead when David Conwell latched onto a long ball to score past the advancing Caolan Mc Gettigan. Milford’s best chance came when TJ Evesson shot wide on 40 minutes. On the hour mark Chris Nelis latched on to a long ball over the Milford defence to slot home. The third came on 70 minutes when Shane O’ Rourke headed home a cross on the counter attack. Good team performance from the Killybegs men and best for Milford was Caolan Mc Gettigan. Referee: Joe McHugh.Kildrum Tigers 2 Gweedore Celtic 3Gweedore went ahead when Jambo finished neatly from the edge off the box. Kildrum equalised from the spot through Jonny Mc Ginty before going ahead from a great Damian Crossan strike from 15 yards. Gweedore drew level just before halftime thanks to an own goal. Kildrum had a lot of possession in the second half but couldn’t find the breakthrough and were punished with 5 minutes remaining when Eamon McGee broke through the middle and finished to the bottom corner.Glenea United 1 Drumoghill F.C. 1In wintry conditions both sides had to settle for a point. Drumoghill played with the elements at their back in the 1st half and put the home side under pressure. In the 30th minute Ritchie Moore picked up a loose ball in the box but his close range effort was well saved by Joe Coll. As the half progressed Glenea came more into the game but were unable to create a clear chance. In the 2nd half the home side began to see more of the ball but failed to test the visiting keeper. Drumoghill took the lead on 65 minutes when a cross from the right was steered home by Moore from 15 yards. Glenea pressed hard for an equaliser but still found it hard to get an effort on target. Moore came closest to adding to the score-line when saw a header go just wide. Glenea almost equalised on 85 minutes when Eugene Maguire’s through ball released Darren Mc Geever but he saw his goal bound effort blocked by a defender. Glenea finally got their breakthrough on 88 minutes when Gavin Mc Glanaghey’s pass found Darren Mc Geever and he slotted home at the near post. Decent team efforts from both sides in windy conditions. Referee: Marty Mc Garrigle.Cranford United 2 Cappry Rovers 3Cappry overcame Cranford in a tough game with a late winner. Cappry started the game bright and came close on a few occasions. Cappry took the lead when Benny Mc Laughlin turned a Cranford defender on the end line and squared to the incoming midfielder who slotted home. Cranford equalised shortly after through Arthur Lynch. Cranford could have taken the lead before half time when they were awarded a penalty but the keeper saved Kyle Black’s spot kick. Instead it was Cappry who went in at half time in the lead through a Benny Mc Laughlin goal. The second half was closely contested and Cranford’s task was made harder when they were reduced to ten men in a controversial moment. Cranford then started to play with more desire and equalised through Ryan Mc Gonagle. The game seemed to be heading for a draw but in the last minute Benny Mc Laughlin won it for Cappry. Team effort from both teams.Watson Hire Division One Castlefin Celtic 3 Kerrykeel’71 F.C. 1Castlefin maintained their 100% league record with a hard fought victory over Kerrykeel on Sunday. In a scrappy opening neither side created any clear cut chances. Kerrykeel took the lead in the 35th minute through a Myles Mc Bride shot from 20 yards which flew into the top corner of the net. The home side responded immediately when Barry Tourish broke down the left and crossed to JP Malley who tapped home. Castlefin started the second half the better and went close through PJ Mc Menamin and Malley. Castlefin finally got reward for their pressure in the 89th minute when Emmet White’s shot from 30 yards flew into the net. In stoppage time Castlefin extended their lead when a Ronan Tourish cross was slotted home by Malley. Best wishes to Castlefin player Simon Mc Glinchey who suffered a serious injury in the match.Dunkineely Celtic 1 Lagan Harps 2A minute silence was observed before this game as a mark of respect to the late Rodger Meehan who sadly passed away on Saturday. Dunkineely played with the strong breeze in the first half and had Lagan under pressure from the start. The first chance fell to Adrian Nesbitt who clipped the outside of the post from the edge of the box after 5 minutes. Other efforts from Andrew Mackey and Daniel Gallagher went just wide of the target. Lagan’s first chance fell to Stephen O’ Donnell, who cut in from the left wing, but his shot from 20 yards went harmlessly wide. Dunkineely took the lead on 25 minutes when Andrew Mackey fired home a free from 25 yards after he himself had been fouled. Dunkineely continued to press and Mackey and Nesbitt both had efforts go narrowly wide. Lagan got their equaliser on 35 minutes when Stephen O’ Donnell converted from the penalty spot.With the elements at their back Lagan came out strongly in the second half and had Dunkineely pressed back for long periods. The home team defended well and restricted Lagan to long range efforts. On 72 minutes Lagan took the lead when a long clearance from the keeper was not dealt with and Chris Toner won the race with the keeper to poke the ball home. Dunkineely fought hard to get back into the game and Cian Kennedy had a shot well saved by the Lagan keeper. Dunkineely had strong claims for a penalty turned down on 80 minutes. Andrew Mackey made a strong burst into the penalty area and was brought down but the referee awarded a free on the edge of the box. Andrew Mackey’s effort cannoned off the wall and Paul Murrin struck the outside of the post from the rebound. Dunkineely pressed for the equaliser but some last ditch defending by Lagan kept their goal intact. Dunkineely still seek their first win but this was a much improved performance. Referee: Marin Mc Anenny.Kilmacrennan Celtic 6 Curragh Athletic 3Kilmacrennan took the lead early against Curragh Athletic with a goal from Christy Connaghan in the 5th minute. Kilmacrennan dominated the game from then on. In the 25th minute, after some great play from Daire McDaid, Michael McLaughlin scored. The second half started off well for Kilmacrennan when Timmy Burke worked his magic, dribbling the ball through Curragh’s defence, leaving the keeper with no chance. In the 66th minute Kilmacrennan scored another goal when Burke laid the ball off to Michael McLaughlin who slotted the ball to the back of the net. In the 70th minute Kilmacrennan increased their lead further through Mc Daid. On 80 minutes Curragh showed great determination to pull one back when Michael Melaugh blasted the ball past Kilmacrennan’s keeper. A minute later Gary Gorman scored for Kilmacrennan after great play from Seamy Peoples and Liam McBride. Curragh then scored a great goal from the re-start from Colm O’ Brien. Curragh didn’t give up and scored again in the 84th minute, with a goal from a corner which fell to Calvin Bradley’s feet in the 6 yard box. This left the final score at 6-3 to Kilmacrennan. Best for Kilmacrennan: Rab Sandilands & Daire McDaid. Best for Curragh Athletic: Overall team effort.CT Ball Division TwoDunlewy Celtic 3 Raphoe Town 2Both sides came into this game on the back of good victories and it was the visitors who started brightest but it remained level at half time. The second half started well for the home side with Liam McMullen scoring from a corner. It wasn’t long lived however as Peter Mc Glynn scored from a free kick which caught out the home keeper. It remained tight with both sides going close but there was a moment of magic from Kieran Mc Geady when he latched onto a clearance from Kevin Doohan and rifled home a wonderful shot. Mc Geady then earned a penalty which his namesake Brendan converted. The visitors weren’t finished however and got a goal from Christy Boyle after a goal mouth scramble. Best For Dunlewey were: Kieran Mc Geady, John Cannon and Kevin Doohan. Team performance from RaphoeBallybofey United 3 Bonagee United 3Three times Bonagee went in front but three times they were hauled back by a determined home side. Frankie Mc Brearty gave the Dry Arch men the lead but David Whyte soon equalised. Gary Patton then put the visitors ahead but Mark Marley, on his return from injury, restored parity. Darren Hunter got Bonagee’s third before Whyte again added to his season’s tally. Both sides created scoring opportunities after this but the scores were on the doors and each had to settle for a point on Finnside. Best for Ballybofey United: Aaron Mc Auley, Kevin Boyle and PJ Browne. Best for Bonagee United: Gary Patton and Darren Hunter. Referee: Andrew Mullan.Glenree United 3 Convoy Arsenal 4The visitors struck first in the 25th minute moments after missing a penalty which was well saved by Daryl Gibson. They caught the home side out again when their striker’s shot took a huge deflection and nestled in the bottom corner. Glenree got one back through Patrick Mc Groddy. Convoy struck again in the 53rd minute when they worked the ball well down the right wing to cross it for their striker to stroke it home. The home side didn’t give in though and showed great courage to fight back. They scored from a corner through John Mc Clafferty and then in the 70th minute Colin Gallagher scored the goal of the day when he turned the defender and whipped it into the top corner to make it 3-3. Glenree had the league leaders on the ropes and had them pinned back in their own penalty box but another goal just wouldn’t come. Then in the 86th minute Convoy struck again from a free kick to make it four and that’s how it stayed. Referee: Ronan FloydOld Orchard Saturday Division OneGlenree United Reserves 1 Arranmore UnitedArranmore took the lead after twenty minutes when Christopher Mc Glanaghey finished well.They went two up ten minutes later when Danny Rodgers found himself unmarked at a corner and he headed to the net. After the break Glenree got one back through John Mc Clafferty when the ball was played across and it seemed to deflect off his knee and past the helpless keeper after good work from Vinny Mc Laughlin and Nicholas Nelis. Glenree pressed for an equaliser without reward. Poor defending from another corner allowed Mc Glanaghey to tap home for his 2nd of the game. With the last attack of the match Michael McHugh tapped in for Arranmore’s 4th. Team performance from Glenree. Christopher Mc Glanaghey and Danny Rodgers were best for Arranmore.Donegal Town Reserves 2 St. Catherines Reserves 1St Catherine’s started this game the brighter of the two sides. Chances fell to Ryan Ward and Barry Cannon before Town’s Jamie White and David Bustard saw their first chances come to nothing. The best chance of the half fell to Donegal on the stroke of half time when Ryan Hegarty forced a super save form Catherine’s keeper Rory Mc Callig. The game remained scoreless at half-time. Donegal Town made the breakthrough when Nathan Ward’s whipped corner was met by the head of Stephen Graham. His effort was cleared off the line but only as far as Adrian Ward who fired the loose ball into the Catherine’s net. St Catherine’s levelled the game on seventy minutes. The introduction of Donegal’s Declan Brown had a big impact and Donegal pushed forward at every opportunity. The winner came late in the game and it was Browne who got it when he reacted quickest to score after Devenney’s shot came back off the postGlenea United Reserves 0 Erne Wanderers 2A youthful Glenea Reserves side went down to a more experienced Erne outfit. Playing with the wind the visitors dominated proceedings but were unable to create any clear chances until the 33rd minute when, on counter attack, Michael Dorrian got onto a right wing cross at the near post and forced the ball home. Erne extended their lead on 35 minutes when Barry Mulligan created space 25 yards out and hit an effort which went in off the post. Glenea tried hard to get back into the game but found it tough going. In the 2nd half Glenea did come more into it with Dean Gallagher and Dean Mc Carry both forcing the Erne ‘keeper into a couple of good saves. Decent effort from both sides. Referee: Michael McFadden.Castlefin Celtic Reserves 1 Orchard F.C. 5Niall Bonner and Michael Doherty both had early chances for Orchard before Damien Mc Anenny and Paddy Dooher had attempts for the home side. Orchard broke the deadlock on 42 minutes from the penalty spot after Michael Doherty was fouled in the box, Doherty converted from twelve yards himself. Castlefin equalised two minutes later when Gary Mc Nulty’s thirty yard free kick beat the Orchard keeper. On the stroke of half time Orchard regained the lead. Castlefin keeper Jason Curran did well to save Niall Bonner’s shot but Joe McCarron finished the rebound. Castlefin started the second half the better but despite having most of the chances the home team were unable to find the net. Paddy Dooher and David Stewart both had efforts cleared off the Orchard line before Orchard got their third on 79 minutes when Michael Doherty set up Eddie McLaughlin who drilled the ball into the bottom corner. Niall Bonner added two more in the 84th and 86th minutes to make it five to Orchard. Referee: Vincent McLaughlin. Best for Castlefin: Team performance. Best for Orchard: Team performanceGlencar Celtic 4 Fintown Harps AFC 3Glencar started brightly and had the ball in the net after five minutes from a free-kick but it was disallowed for a push. They took the lead shortly after through, Steven Browne with a 25 yard effort which squirmed under the keeper. They doubled their lead two minutes later, Mark Graham nodding home from a Marty Brogan free-kick. On 25 minutes Glencar were awarded a penalty and Browne converted for his second of the game. Fintown started the second half brightest and Steven Thompson’s shot took a massive deflection to wrong foot the Glencar keeper to make it 3-1. Fintown were then reduced to ten men.

At the back they were solid and Emmett Doogan was covering a lot of ground and creating chances. Enda Brogan finally broke the deadlock to give the home side the lead. Cranford didn’t give in and struck an equaliser from the edge of the box through a group of players leaving the goalkeeper no chance. Drumbar heads didn’t drop and they kept pushing for the winner. Darragh Doogan then broke from defence and found himself in the opposition box. His shot was parried into the path of Alan Cavanagh who finished well. Team effort from Cranford. Declan Mc Loughlin, Daniel Bennett and Emmet Doogan were best for Drumbar.Strand Rovers 3 Tullyvinney Rovers 0This top of the table clash in Maghery was played in what can only be described as wintry conditions. The game started lively with both teams having some nice passages of play. On the ten minute mark Strand broke the deadlock when Paddy Glackin was fouled in the box and the Strand skipper Brendan Brennan stepped up to tuck away the penalty. Strand pushed forward again and were awarded another penalty on twenty five minutes when Doalty Boyle was pushed over in the box. Up stepped the captain Brennan again for the same return. Tullyvinney came out eager for the second half and had a few opportunities to pull one back but the Strand defence stood tall and denied them. John Walsh got Strand’s third when he nipped in between the keeper and a few Tullyvinney defenders to score. Two decent team performances in wintry conditions.Donegal Junior LeagueResultsOld Orchard Saturday Division OneGlenree United Reserves 1 v 4 Arranmore UnitedDonegal Town Reserves 2 v 1 St. Catherines ReservesGlenea United Reserves 0 v 2 Erne WanderersCastlefin Celtic Reserves 1 v 5 Orchard F.C.Glencar Celtic 4 v 3 Fintown Harps AFCGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoCurragh Athletic Reserves 5 v 0 Milford United ReservesDrumbar F.C. 2 v 1 Cranford United ReservesStrand Rovers 3 v 0 Tullyvinney RoversBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionMilford United 0 v 3 St. CatherinesKildrum Tigers 2 v 3 Gweedore CelticGlenea United 1 v 1 Drumoghill F.C.Cranford United 2 v 3 Cappry RoversWatson Hire Division OneCastlefin Celtic 3 v 1 Kerrykeel’71 F.C.Dunkineely Celtic 1 v 2 Lagan HarpsKilmacrennan Celtic 6 v 3 Curragh AthleticCT Ball Division TwoDunlewy Celtic 3 v 2 Raphoe TownBallybofey United 3 v 3 Bonagee UnitedGlenree United 3 v 4 Convoy ArsenalFixturesSaturday 08-11-2014 K.O. 2p.m. (Unless Stated)Old Orchard Saturday Division OneFintown Harps AFC v Arranmore United (K.O. 1 p.m.)Orchard F.C. v Glencar CelticErne Wanderers v Castlefin Celtic ReservesSt. Catherines Reserves v Glenea United ReservesDonegal Town Reserves v Glenree United ReservesGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoMulroy Celtic v Drumoghill F.C.
