“Murphy’s injury looked serious, and his knee is badly swollen” – Declan Bonner

first_imgFormer Donegal manager Declan Bonner has said the injury sustained by Michael Murphy looked serious, and confirmed that his knee is badly swollen as a result of the injury. Bonner was on the side-line last night in his capacity as a coach for St Michael’s when the injury occurred to the Donegal captain in an All-County league clash between St Michael’s and Glenswilly.The 1992 All-Ireland winner said that it seemed an innocuous incident at first, but that it became quickly apparent he had suffered a nasty injury. Bonner was speaking this afternoon on Highland Radio, where he was commentating on Donegal’s All-Ireland MFC semi-final with Galway at Croke Park.Bonner said, “I was at the match last night, because I’m involved with St Michael’s, and the incident looked fairly innocuous initially.“There was a very heavy shower just before half-time, and conditions were difficult, Michael went down and he seemed to be in a lot of pain. “I touched base with him today, and he said it’s very swollen, he has to wait for the swelling to go down before he can get a scan on it.“It looks like he will be out for quite a while, it’s a huge blow for Glenswilly ahead of their resumption of the Donegal SFC, but hopefully he hasn’t done his ACL.“He’s going to be out for a while, but we wish him well, it didn’t look good, but here’s hoping it’s nothing too serious.“He’s in Croke Park today, he’s a great supporter of underage football, and it’s brilliant to see him down here supporting our minor side.”“Murphy’s injury looked serious, and his knee is badly swollen” – Declan Bonner was last modified: August 21st, 2016 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Declan BonnerInjuryKneeMichael MurphynewsSportSwollenlast_img read more

Construction begins on 14mile stretch of border upgrades

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Construction upgrades to a 14-mile stretch of fencing along the U.S.-Mexico Border began today, Customs and Border Protection confirmed. The project area begins roughly one half-mile from the Pacific Ocean and extends eastward to the base of Otay Mountain.“One of Border Patrol’s top priority projects,” according to CBP, it is the third to begin this year as part of the Trump administration’s proposed “border wall.” Other projects are underway in Calexico and New Mexico, where two-mile and 20-mile stretches of border, respectively, are being upgraded.“Under this president’s leadership, we have a renewed commitment to secure our border,” said Ronald Vitiello, CBP acting deputy commissioner.“The new primary wall-project represents an important milestone in our work to secure the international border.” In San Diego, construction crews will install 18- to 30-foot bollards topped with a steel anti-climbing plate. Bollards are sturdy poles too closely set for people to pass through.The poles will replace eight- to 10-foot tall scraps of corrugated Vietnam War-era metal installed at the border during the 1990s to prevent pedestrian and vehicles crossings. The scraps needed to be replaced with a “higher performing design,” according to CBP.Texas-based consturction firm SLSCO was awarded a $147 million contract for the project. “The construction of this new substantial wall will improve overall border security, the safety and effectiveness of Border Patrol agents, the safety of the public and will enhance the atmosphere for business and commerce in the area,” San Diego Sector Chief Patrol Agent Rodney Scott said.
