first_imgThe celebration of the end of Ramadan in Greenville, Sinoe County nearly turned into a funeral when a bloody motorcycle accident occurred, involving three Muslim children and an adult – a female.Two motorcycles collided in Panama, Kpanyan District about fifteen minutes ride from Greenville.A female adult passenger sustained severe injury to her legs while the three Muslim children had relatively minor injuries.Scores of people from the Muslim Community, especially the women who visited the hospital, were seen with their prayer beads, muttering the name of “Allah” – most certainly thanking God or “Allah” for sparing the lives of the victims.According to motorbike rider Karnu Jalloh, 15, they were celebrating the end-of-the-Ramadan riding on the bike when the other motorcyclist drove into his bike which had his brother and a friend.Most of the Muslims were “decently and beautifully dressed.” Families are usually in uniform (dressed alike).Mr. Mohammed Sow, a member of the Fulah community, said the survival of their children is an indication that “Allah has answered our prayers and we are happy.”According to medical reports, the three children were discharged, but the driver and the female passenger have been hospitalized and responding to treatment.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more


first_imgA golfing mad student has carried out his college dissertation on the Irish Open which kicks off in Royal Portrush tomorrow.Well-known Carrigart estate agent Louis Boyce is so in love with golf that he completed his Masters in Business Development and Innovation dissertation on the competition at the University of Ulster in Jordanstown. Louis, 48, studied why Ireland has been so successful at golf in recent years and why Portrush was chosen to host the Irish Open – the first time since 1947.“It’s a complete study of the event and I really enjoyed doing it. Of course it’s not finished yet.“I travelled to a lot of courses to study what they do and to find out what makes them successful.“It was fascinating to get behind all the work that goes on behind staging such a huge tournament,” he said. Louis is no mean golfer himself as he plays off 8 and has even had no less than three hole-in-ones in his amateur playing career.Playing against the likes of Graham McDowell, Darren Clarke and Rory McIlroy would be a dream come true for Louis who travels to the event on Sunday.“I think that would be every golf fan’s dream but it will probably never happen to me.“Writing about them and the events is probably about as near as I’ll ever get. I just hope they can help me get my Masters,” he laughedWith more than 100,000 people set to descend upon Royal Portrush for the four day event, the event will cost more than €2.5 million to stage.  LOUIS HITS A HOLE-IN-ONE WITH HIS OWN ‘MASTERS’! was last modified: June 26th, 2012 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:CarrigartIrish OpenLouis BoyceRoyal Portrushlast_img read more
