I’m doing it for all those who couldn’t take it any…

first_imgEmail Linkedin NewsLocal NewsI’m doing it for all those who couldn’t take it any moreBy admin – October 30, 2012 686 Facebook Previous articleLife goes on the barricadesNext articleDundon girlfriend cleared of intimidation admin Advertisementcenter_img THE tea cups and sandwich wrappers are being cleared away as men pull on outdoor coats and put the security cabin to rights. Up in the log cabin, some of the night shift are stretching and waking, while others arrive in cars at the gate, ready to relieve those who have been on duty all day. It could be the changeover on a factory production line but it is, in fact, the polar opposite. These people are giving up their time to stand guard at the home of Seamus Sherlock and his family in Feohanagh to prevent the Bank of Scotland executing an eviction order.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up By the time Limerick Post readers see this article, the Sherlock family will have been barricaded into their home for 70 days.Seamus started the ‘Life After Debt’ advocacy and support group after he lost his income overnight five years ago.“My business was cutting turf and I supplied more than 400 people but in one stroke of a pen, the bog was closed and I was out of business,” he told the Limerick Post.Seamus never received any compensation for his loss and got into trouble with paying the mortgage on the family home.‘There was nothing I could do at the time but soon afterwards my son started working the farm and we started to get back on our feet. Now we have a five-figure sum sitting in my  solicitor’s office and the bank are refusing to take it. I’m not looking for any write-down – all I want is a longer term to pay the mortgage”.When the eviction order arrived on his doorstep, Seamus called his children together and told them he wanted to fight. “They all said we should do it. We have no choice. We have nowhere to go. We will resist peacefully if they come to put us out but they will have to beat me to make me leave and they’ll have to kill me to stop me coming back.No sooner had Seamus rolled the silage bales in front of his home to form a barricade than neighbours began arriving with gifts of food. Within days of his stand being first reported in the media, friends, people he had helped through ‘Life After Debt” and complete strangers started turning up to volunteer for guard duty at the gates.“The support has been phenomenal. This is the Ireland of concern and community that our parents told us about. People have volunteered to stand with me, neighbours have been bringing boxes of groceries, every morning and evening people turn up with hot food for the lads at the gate. I’ve been given a log cabin that sleeps twelve people; a security hut for the lads on duty; eight two-way radios, heaters and a generator – all donated by companies and people who want us to continue making this stand. I have to say a huge ‘thank you’ to everyone”.Seamus says that while he is standing up to the eviction order for his own and his family’s sake, he is also doing it “for all those who couldn’t take it anymore.“There are so many people going into the river because they are just crushed by what is happening. I’m doing of for them because they can’t speak for themselves anymore”. Twitter Print WhatsApplast_img read more

Sideline Cancer’s 3rd-quarter run sinks Boeheim’s Army in TBT quarterfinals

first_img Published on July 11, 2020 at 6:26 pm Contact Thomas: [email protected] | @ThomasShults5 Facebook Twitter Google+ The Daily Orange is a nonprofit newsroom that receives no funding from Syracuse University. Consider donating today to support our mission.Sideline Cancer’s run began with just over two minutes to go in the third quarter. On a fastbreak, SC’s Jamel Artis drove down the lane and found Dion Wright on the right side of the basket. Wright collected the pass, spun to his right and shed a defender before finishing the uncontested layup to improve Sideline Cancer’s lead to 39-34.By the end of the third, the run had become 11-0 and extended to 24-2 before a layup from John Gillon. No. 22 Sideline Cancer turned a tie at halftime into a 14-point lead over No. 3 Boeheim’s Army and cruised to a 65-48 victory in The Basketball Tournament’s quarterfinals.While the teams combined to shoot 3-for-30 from 3 in the first half, Sideline Cancer found its rhythm in the second. Marcus Keene struggled, not scoring until late in the third quarter, but Maurice Creek led all scorers with 22 points. With the loss, Boeheim’s Army has now failed to make TBT’s semifinals in five of six tournaments.“They’ve been very heavily relying on (Keene),” Gillon said before the game. “But one point I made was we can’t let someone else kill us just because we take him out of the game.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGillon’s warning foreshadowed the result for Boeheim’s Army. After slowing down Sideline Cancer in the first half, Boeheim’s Army’s defensive strategy started to falter. With just over seven minutes left in the fourth quarter, down 50-34, Demetris Nichols turned the ball over, dropped his head and sighed heavily.A few possessions later, Donte Greene took a fade-away, contested 3-pointer from the corner, which bounced off the side of the rim. SC’s Remy Abell collected a pass before blazing past Eric Devendorf for an easy layup to continue Sideline Cancer’s game-deciding run.Before the matchup, Andrew White III said that Keene would struggle against the 2-3 zone. Unlike man-to-man, Keene couldn’t drive in the lane on one defender. However, when Boeheim’s Army switched to man defense, Sideline Cancer and Keene gained momentum.“If you go back and watch the film, every time I scored is when they went man-to-man in the second half,” Keene said. “The zone threw me off, I feel like it threw the whole team off.”As the second half continued, the bench for Boeheim’s Army became quieter and quieter, while Sideline Cancer head coach Charles Parker continued to scream encouragement.“Attack, attack, attack,” Parker yelled from the sideline.Four McGlynn scored two points and added four rebounds for Sideline Cancer in a quarterfinal win against Boeheim’s Army. Courtesy of Ben SolomonWhile both teams continued to struggle from 3, Sideline Cancer continued its second-half run with a rebounding advantage. Even without Diamond Stone — who missed the game because of injury — Sideline Cancer’s Eric Thompson finished with 18 rebounds and dominated on the glass from the beginning of the game.After winning the opening tip, Sideline Cancer strolled down the court before shooting a 3. After the shot fell short, Thompson, in between Greene and Malachi Richardson, collected the rebound and quickly laid the ball in for an early 2-0 lead.Greene’s struggles from 3 continued on offense. Shot after shot fell short, sometimes as an air-ball, while others barely scraped the rim. Greene finished 0-for-6 from 3 with just eight points.Only four players scored over eight points for Boeheim’s Army, and Devendorf led with 14 points on 6-for-16 shooting. After taking care of the ball against Men of Mackey, BA finished with 11 turnovers.With seven minutes and 20 seconds left in the second quarter, Gillon drove into the lane and began a Euro step. He lost control as he hopped from his right foot to his left with the ball over his head, and Richardson jumped for a contested layup minutes later. The ball spun off after rolling around the rim, and Sideline Cancer collected the rebound.As Sideline Cancer began its fastbreak, Will Rayman intercepted a lazy bounce pass. The Colgate graduate reversed the transition offense and attempted a contested layup of his own. But like Richardson and Gillon, Rayman couldn’t convert.By the third quarter’s midpoint, Sideline Cancer was in full control. Even Keene – the focal point of BA’s defense – was starting to find open looks. With a 2-3 zone in disarray in front of him, Keene hit a wide-open 3 from the wing to extend Sideline Cancer’s lead. And as those looks became more and more common in the fourth quarter, Boeheim’s Army inched toward its tournament exit.“We had our chances, we had our shots,” BA head coach Ryan Blackwell said. “We had another shot today and we just didn’t capitalize.”center_img Commentslast_img read more
