Bonfires, TV appearance and trailer parades – unforgettable times from Ballyroan’s last county final triumph WhatsApp Electric Picnic Gerry Scully with family members and supporters after Ballyroan Gaels won the Laois SFC final in 2006. Picture: Alf Harvey. How the years roll by.The Ballyroan Gaels Laois SFC triumph is 14 years ago this year but the celebrations will be remembered forever.Their first triumph in 14 years, coming off the back of a most unlikely campaign, led to incredible scenes, even if one of their players didn’t approve of the homecoming plans being put in place before the match had even been played by one over enthusiastic supporter.Speaking on the recent LaoisToday Down Memory Lane Podcast, Gerry Scully, a half-forward on that team, recalled how the excitement overcame the close-knit community.“Our kitchen table, they’d kick football up and down it,” he laughed as he remembered the morning of that final. “So I’d to go for a walk in the forest.“Richard, my brother, said, ‘I might put out a few sticks for a bonfire’. I said, ‘you can’t do that Richard. That’s bad luck. You cannot do that. We haven’t won anything.’”Gerry heard no more until after the match, with the Jack Delaney Cup in tow, they arrived back to Ballyroan to be greeted by the most impressive celebratory bonfire you could imagine.“The boys up in Sandy Roe in Belfast on the 12th of July wouldn’t have been in it with them. He had a bonfire the height of the Empire State building.“You could see it coming in. And then we jumped up on the back of Eoin McMahon’s trailer. It was just unbelievable. Lifelong memories.”“It was unreal,” added Eoin Kearns who was full-back on that team.“The night of the final – maybe the years have added on to it. But it was ten deep on either side of the road. Every pub was packed. It was a mental couple of days. It was a great week.”That year gave them just one memory after another, including the whole lot of them appearing on the RTE show Park Life, which was hosted by Ger Gilroy and filmed in Croke Park.Scully is pretty sure it was long-serving club man Ned Peacock who organised that.“Ned’s mantra that year was that we’d want for nothing. We were in swimming pools and we were eating everywhere. Ned took good care of us.“It was like the economy at the moment. We were running massive losses but the eyes were on the prize. It was worry about the bills later. Ned always gave us the best.”Though they never got back to those heights again, it was well-balanced Ballyroan side that got on a roll and took the opportunity that came their way.“We’d a keeper with a big boot and could stop shots, each one of the defenders could defend properly without being protected by a sweeper, we’d midfielders who could win ball,” said Kearns.“We averaged ten points a game in that whole championship but we only conceded an average of eight. In the final we only conceded seven.“When you’re only conceding seven or eight points a game, you’re going to have a chance. From the quarter-final on, we didn’t concede a goal. When defending as well as that as a unit and you have Padraig McMahon and (Michael) Tierney and Scott (Conroy), and Mick Brennan and Gerry (Scully) up front, you’re going to be there or there abouts.”You can download and subscribe on the following Podcast platformsApple PodcastsSpotifyPodbean Twitter The LaoisToday Podcast · Down Memory Lane with LaoisToday – Ballyroan go all the way in 2006SEE ALSO – Talking Sport Podcast: Paul Cahillane on Celtic, Portlaoise, Ireland, Laois and Roy Keane Home Sport GAA Bonfires, TV appearance and trailer parades – unforgettable times from Ballyroan’s last… SportGAAGaelic Football TAGS2006BallyroanBallyroan GaelsDown Memory LaneEoin KearnsGerry ScullyNed Peacock By LaoisToday Reporter – 7th June 2020 Previous articleCounty Final Memory: Portlaoise hurlers end famine in 1981Next articleWe want your #LoveLaois photos as the county begins to open up again LaoisToday Reporter Bizarre situation as Ben Brennan breaks up Fianna Fáil-Fine Gael arrangement to take Graiguecullen-Portarlington vice-chair role Twitter Facebook Pinterest Electric Picnic RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Electric Picnic organisers release statement following confirmation of new festival date Pinterest News Laois Councillor ‘amazed’ at Electric Picnic decision to apply for later date for 2021 festival WhatsApp Facebook
State AGs fight for DOL fiduciary rule The final rule is largely identical to the rule proposed earlier in the year, although the regulators have made several adjustments in response to public comments, regulators note. They also indicate that the final rule is generally consistent with the Basel Committee’s liquidity standards, but that it is more stringent in certain areas, including that it provides a shorter implementation deadline. “The accelerated transition period reflects a desire to maintain the improved liquidity positions that U.S. institutions have established since the financial crisis,” regulators say. Firms will be required to be fully compliant with the rule by Jan. 1, 2017. The new “liquidity coverage ratio” (LCR) requirement will apply to all banking organizations with US$250 billion or more in total consolidated assets, or banks with US$10 billion or more in on-balance sheet foreign exposure. A less stringent requirement will be applied to smaller banks, which have at least US$50 billion in total assets. The rule does not apply to bank holding companies, or to non-bank financials that have been designated for enhanced supervision by the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC). The Fed plans to apply enhanced liquidity standards to FSOC-designated institutions however through a forthcoming rule. Separately, the Fed, FDIC and OCC also adopted a final rule modifying certain aspects of bank leverage requirements to conform with recent changes agreed to by the Basel Committee. And, they (along with a couple of other federal agencies) also proposed a rule to establish margin requirements for swap dealers, major swap participants, security-based swap dealers, and major security-based swap participants. The proposed swap margin requirements “are intended to address a number of weaknesses in the regulation and structure of the swap markets that were revealed during the recent financial crisis. The requirements are intended to reduce risk, increase transparency, and promote market integrity,” the regulators said. Comments on the proposed rules are due in 60 days. Industry trade group, the Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association (SIFMA), noted that it is reviewing the new swap margin proposals. “Given the global nature of the swaps market, we believe it is essential that U.S. margin requirements for non-centrally cleared swaps and security-based swaps are consistent with the final policy framework agreed by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision and the International Organization of Securities Commissions,” said SIFMA president and CEO, Kenneth Bentsen, Jr., in a statement. Facebook LinkedIn Twitter James Langton U.S. banking regulators have made further progress on the post-crisis reform agenda by finalizing new liquidity requirements for large banks, revising leverage rules, and proposing new swap margin requirements. The three federal banking regulators in the U.S. — the U.S. Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., and the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency — Wednesday announced several reform measures. First, they finalized rules to strengthen the liquidity positions of large financial institutions. The new rules in this area will create a new minimum liquidity requirement for large and internationally-active banking organizations.

Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Based on data as of December 31, 2014, all large internationally active banks now meet the risk-based minimum capital requirements of 4.5% under Basel III, as well as the tier one common equity (CET1) target level of 7.0%, the report says. The 100 so-called “Group 1 banks” in the research are defined as large, internationally active banks, with Tier 1 capital of at least €3 billion ($4.5 billion). According to the report, these banks have also reduced their capital shortfalls relative to higher Tier 1 capital targets of 8.5%, from €18.6 billion ($27.9 billion) to €6.5 billion ($9.75 billion), and the shortfall relative to the total capital target of 10.5% has decreased from €78.6 billion ($117.9 billion) to €40.6 billion ($60.9 billion). The research also found that that there is now no capital shortfall for so-called Group 2 banks (121 smaller banks that were also examined), based on a Tier 1 minimum of 4.5%. For a target level of 7.0%, the shortfall narrowed from €1.8 billion ($2.7 billion) to €1.5 billion ($2.3 billion) since the previous report. The average tier 1 capital ratios under the Basel III framework across the same sample of banks are 11.1% for Group 1 banks and 12.3% for Group 2 banks. The report also looked at the banks adherence to new liquidity requirements under Basel III. The minimum Liquidity Coverage Ratio (LCR) requirement is initially set at 60%, and will rise in equal annual steps to reach 100% in 2019. The weighted average LCR for the Group 1 banks it reviewed was 125%, the report says, up from 121% six months earlier. For Group 2 banks, the weighted average LCR was 144%, up from 140% six months earlier. For banks in the sample, 85% reported an LCR that met or exceeded 100%, while 98% reported an LCR at or above 60%. Combined shortfall amounts, which includes both risk-based capital and Tier 1 leverage ratio requirements, results in a Tier 1 capital shortfall of €3.1 billion ($4.7 billion) for Group 1 banks at the minimum level. At the target level, the capital shortfall rises by €1.6 billion ($2.4 billion), from €6.5 billion ($9.8 billion) to €8.1 billion ($12.2 billion), when the Basel III leverage ratio requirement is included. And, this also increases the total capital shortfall from from €47.2 billion ($70.8 billion) to €48.8 billion ($73.2 billion) at the target level. For Group 2 banks, the inclusion of the Basel III leverage ratio boost the total capital shortfalls at the target level by €2.6 billion ($3.9 billion), from €12.9 billion ($19.4 billion) to €15.5 billion ($23.3 billion). The Basel III regime also includes a longer-term structural liquidity standard, known as the Net Stable Funding Ratio (NSFR). The weighted average NSFR for the Group 1 bank sample was 111%, the report says, and for Group 2 banks the average NSFR was 114%. Three quarters (75%) of the Group 1 banks, and 85% of the Group 2 banks, reported ratios that met or exceeded 100%, and 92% of Group 1 banks and 93% of Group 2 banks reported an NSFR of at least 90%.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Canadian Prime Minister, the Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper, has given an undertaking to pursue the interests of developing nations, such as Jamaica, with multi-lateral funding agencies, against the background of the prevailing global economic downturn.He gave this commitment at the signing of a bi-lateral Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), between Jamaica and Canada, at Jamaica House on April 21. Prime Minister the Hon. Bruce Golding and Mr. Harper signed the MoU.The MoU will facilitate the provision of Can$18 million, over the next four years, to enhance Jamaica’s judicial system, through the Justice Undertakings for Social Transformation (JUST) programme.In his address, Mr. Golding lamented the challenges which countries like Jamaica, which are classified as “indebted middle income” states by the United Nations (UN), face in accessing funding earmarked for countries categorised as poor.Noting that these concerns were shared with Mr. Harper, Mr. Golding said, “as I pointed out to the United Nations General Assembly in September last year, and on so many occasions, notwithstanding the fact that we may be classified as middle income, the fact is that we do have deep and endemic pockets of poverty that need to be addressed.”He pointed out that Jamaica’s debt limited the fiscal space necessary for the administration to effectively deal with some of the prevailing problems.“Countries like Jamaica need special attention and consideration. I think Prime Minister Harper appreciated this in the discussions that we have had. We depend on him to take our concerns to the councils where we do not sit. I must credit him that, whenever he goes into those major councils, he seeks to find out from me, what are Jamaica’s concerns, and those of countries like Jamaica, that he can represent at those councils. I truly appreciate that kind of assistance and level of interest,” Mr. Golding said.In his response, Mr. Harper, in alluding to the US$1 trillion commitment by the G20 countries to tackle the global recession, said that while member countries, inclusive of Canada, do not dictate how that undertaking would be executed, most of the leaders are keen on ensuring that their assistance translates into support.“We will be pursuing those questions with them (multi-lateral institutions), because the intention of Canada, and I think most leaders of the G20, is to ensure that as we put these additional funds into these institutions to fight the recession, that no gaps are left. We need to be assured that these funds will properly assist countries in Jamaica’s situation,” the Prime Minister said.

RENO, Nev. – Geoff Ogilvy got up-and-down for birdie from a greenside bunker on the par-5 closing hole to take a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Barracuda Championship. In the modified Stableford event, players receive eight points for double eagle, five for eagle, two for birdie, zero for par, minus-one for bogey and minus-three for double bogey or worse. Ogilvy, the Australian who won the 2006 U.S. Open, had seven birdies and two bogeys in a 12-point round at Montreux to push his total to 35. He’s making his first appearance in the event since 2002 after failing to qualify for the World Golf Championship-Bridgestone Invitational. Nick Watney, the leader after each of the first two rounds, was tied for second with Jason Allred. Watney scored six points, and Allred had 14.
