first_imgFEATURES: The Donegal Roaders are set to embark on an exhausting non-stop tour of Ireland on Saturday, to help raise money for Relay for Life! Hegarty’s Ford in Letterkenny along with the well travelled Donegal Roaders came up with a unique fund raising idea for this years Relay For Life. Hegartys have branded a new Ford Kuga in the Relay For Life logo’s – and Les O Donnell and Denis Ferry will leave Letterkenny on Friday evening and drive around Ireland – some 1300 kilometres of it .Some of the routes the guys will embark on are Donegal, Sligo, Galway, Cork, Wexford, Dublin, Belfast and Letterkenny.The duo who usually go nowhere without the third member of the team, Paul Doherty, are going as a double act this time as Paul has work commitments this weekend so Paul said “the two lads will become king of the selfie overnight!”.Paul also gave Denis and Les a camera for the trip and is said to be more worried about it than Andrew Hegarty is of the Kuga! Hegarty’s are selling the kilometres to raise money and Top Oil Letterkenny are supplying the fuel for the trip and CBM signs done all the graphics so this ensures that all the money collected goes to the charity as there is no expenses.The boys will be making regular updates via social media so you can see their progress.The Kuga will be back in Letterkenny after the no stop (except for change of driver) tour of Ireland on Saturday before the start of Relay For Life.So get out there and sponsor some kilometres and raise money for Relay For Life!DONEGAL ROADERS ARE DOING A NON-STOP TOUR OF IRELAND FOR RELAY FOR LIFE was last modified: June 3rd, 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:charityDonegal RoadersIrelandnewsRelay for LifeTriplast_img read more

Van Dijk completes Anfield move and says something Liverpool fans will love

first_img1 Virgil van Dijk says Liverpool is the “perfect match” for him after his world record move from Southampton was officially completed.The 26-year-old’s switch from the Saints was agreed last week, but with the January transfer window now open his deal, understood to be worth £75million – the highest fee ever paid for a defender, is now sealed.The Dutchman told Liverpool’s official website: “With the history at the club and everything around it – even the training ground and stuff – it is just a perfect, perfect match for me, and for my family as well.”Van Dijk, who has signed what Liverpool have said is a “long-term contract” at Anfield, is not concerned about his price tag weighing heavy.The transfer fee eclipses the £54m spent by Manchester City to sign England full-back Kyle Walker from Tottenham last summer.“Obviously there is a lot of money being paid, but I can’t do anything about that money, I can’t do anything about the price – nobody can,” the Holland international added.“It’s only the market. The only thing I can do is just work hard, do the good things and be 100 per cent every day. That’s what I definitely want to do – and I am going to do.“I am happy to be here and I can’t wait to get started. I think the most important thing is the size of the club, the culture of the club, the players, the manager and obviously the fans, who make the club this special.“I think this is the right time for me to be here and to develop all sorts of aspects of my game. I am looking forward to doing that, that’s the main thing.”In order to reach that ambition of improving, Van Dijk believes he is working under the right man in Jurgen Klopp.The former Groningen and Celtic defender, who will wear the number four shirt at Liverpool, said: “Since he’s come in, I think he has made a lot of progress until now and I think it is only hopefully going to get better and better. Hopefully I can contribute to that as well and keep working hard.“Everybody obviously from a Liverpool perspective knows how he is; how lively he is, how he can make players better and give them confidence as well.“It just suits me as well. I think he can make me a better player and I am just looking forward to working with him.”Van Dijk is unavailable for Liverpool’s New Year’s Day game at Burnley as his registration will not be concluded in time.
