United had dictated the pace of the game, showcasing a newly discovered vigour and passing precision, but only scored in the 61st minute. It was a passage of play that demonstrated the potential in Louis van Gaal’s side. The build-up involved interplay between Juan Mata and Anthony Martial. Then Cameron Borthwick-Jackson’s cross was teed up by Wayne Rooney for Jesse Lingard to volley on the turn into the net. “We continued with our good, attacking football,” said Van Gaal, whose side held Chelsea 0-0 at home in December. “We have created a lot of chances here at Chelsea. It’s a nasty away game, I think, and one that’s not so easy. “The last few years Manchester United haven’t won here, so it’s not an easy match and we took the lead with a fantastic goal. A fantastic cross also. Then you can control the game, but in the last quarter we gave it away.” On the south coast, though, Arsenal emerged from their January slump. Arsenal had failed to win in four league games and not scored in three of them until travelling to Bournemouth. Mesut Ozil scored his first goal since December’s reverse fixture against Bournemouth and within 90 seconds Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain ended a 17-month league goal drought. “We had four games without a win when you play at the top that’s a long period, so your confidence drops a little bit,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said. Arsenal moved behind second-place north London rivals Tottenham on goal difference. Coming up for Arsenal next Sunday is a home match against Leicester, the surprise leaders which sent Manchester City tumbling to fourth by winning their encounter 3-1 on Saturday. “Leicester running away and us playing them next week, (makes) the game interesting,” Wenger said. “It was very important for us to win today.” FRESH VIGOUR LONDON (AP): A second stalemate of the season between Chelsea and Manchester United saw the fallen powers slip further from relevance in this unusual Premier League season. The 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge did little to help either team yesterday, which began with Arsenal beating Bournemouth 2-0 to rise to third. United remain lodged in fifth and the gap to the fourth Champions League place has grown to six points. Chelsea remain in the lower reaches of the standings – 13th – closer to the relegation zone than their usual place among the top four elite. The one positive for Chelsea is that the ailing champions remain unbeaten since Guus Hiddink was brought in as manager until the end of the season in December to replace the fired Jose Mourinho. The Blues left it late to rescue a point against United. The game had entered stoppage time when Cesc Fabregas threaded a pass beyond a slipping Daley Blind to Diego Costa, who rounded goalkeeper David De Gea before netting the equaliser.

The Ice Dogs put in a good week’s worth of work, and, not surprisingly, it translated into success. With their 3-2 shootout victory over the Utah Grizzlies in Salt Lake City on Saturday night, the Ice Dogs stretched their winning streak to a season-best four games. And coach Malcolm Cameron credits his team’s recent run to its newfound work ethic. “I’ve said all along that the foundation of success is work ethic,” said Cameron, whose team improved to 18-15-4. “I think sometimes we feel like we are so talented that we can get away from that work ethic. Now that we’ve had a more consistent work ethic, it’s translated into some wins.

Utah tied it at 2-all on Colt King’s tally 2:55 into the second, and the score remained knotted through the third period and overtime. In the shootout, the Ice Dogs got goals from Aikins, Sean McAslan and Chris Kenday, who had the game-winner. “I’m not saying we played a full 60 minutes tonight … but we are finding ways to win now. It’s good to see.” The Grizzlies outshot the Ice Dogs, 55-23, but goalie Greg Hewitt was spectacular.
On the 27th, 28th, and 29th December,1881, 13 families were evicted from their homes in the village of Carrowmenagh, Co. Donegal. Not able to pay the rent, mothers, fathers, children and grandparents were all flung out from their simple cottages or long houses onto the road by agents of the landlord. Some found refuge with relatives locally, others left for America. Evictions like these were common in Ireland from Famine times right up to Independence and even today eviction, losing your home, is still highly emotive and a most traumatic event in anyone’s life.The Challenge of 1881 or DÚSHLÁN 1881 – is to bring this history to life. Two families live for 3 days and 3 nights as their ancestors would have lived in the late 19th century. We tell the story of eviction through their experiences.For this series – we have traced descendants of the original evictees and one family – the McLaughlin’s return from America to take up this unique challenge to live in the footsteps of their own ancestors. For some of them, it’s their first ever visit to Ireland. For all of them it is an emotional reconnection with their family’s past.The other family, Muintir John Ghráinne have a shorter journey, travelling only from Rann na Feirste, but nevertheless, they typify the hardy families who were forced onto poorer land, an internal migration which so often has been forgotten. Those made landless and displaced within the country often had to find alternative ways of earning what was a subsistence living. Muintir Uí Ghráinne want to explore their own family history and honour the resilience and ingenuity of their forbearers. Presented by popular Donegal broadcaster, Rónán Mac Aodha Bhuí, and filmed at The Ulster American Folk Park, Dúshlán 1881: Living The Eviction is scheduled to broadcast on RTÉ One as a landmark series of Seachtain Na Gaeilge and is part funded by the Irish Language Broadcast Fund.Experts from a range of disciplines from across Ireland specialising in 19th Century history, provide the context of the evictions, trace the history of the families and how they would have lived at the time. They provide the historical narrative to the lived experiences of our 21st Century families living the lives of their 19th Century great, great, great grandparents. This unique primetime Irish language series will tell the amazing story of one village and its inhabitants whose descendants return for the most challenging and rewarding experience of their lives.RTÉ ONEMONDAY 11TH MARCH, 19.30FRIDAY 15TH MARCH, 20.30MONDAY 18TH MARCH 19.30 FRIDAY 22nd MARCH 20.30RTE SERIES TO TELL THE STORY OF DONEGAL EVICTIONS was last modified: February 28th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:CarrowmeenaghevictionfamineRTE
