Gaoth Dobhair mourns passing of Fred Coll

first_imgGaoth Dobhair is in mourning following the passing of former county councillor and soccer icon Fred Coll.The late Mr Coll, who passed away this morning, in Aras Ghaoth Dobhair, was a highly influential figure in the area.A long-time independent Councillor on Donegal County Council, he was one of the leading lights in the foundation of the Donegal Junior League in 1971. He had been one of the key figures in the re-forming of the Gweedore Celtic club in the 1960s following his return to the area from Scotland in the 1960s.Fred, from Derrybeg, is predeceased by his wife, Kathleen and is survived by a large family circle.In a tribute posted on social media, Gweedore Celtic said: “Fred Coll was the driving force behind the renaissance of soccer in Gweedore and as part of the Donegal League when it was established in 1971. “On his return from Scotland in the 60s he re-established Gweedore Celtic and along with Colm Mc Bride set in in motion a period of domination on the local soccer scene that lasted into the mid 80’s.“At a time when it was neither popular or profitable, Fred’s determination in establishing a strong soccer club in Gweedore was what drove him and others on to making Gweedore Celtic a force to be reckoned with and a club that made many friends throughout Donegal and further afield.“Rest in peace Fred. Everyone at the club would like to express our sincere condolences to the Coll Family at this sad time.“Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam uasal.”His remains are reposing at his late residence.Funeral from there on Monday morning going to St Mary’s Church, Derrybeg for Requiem Mass at 11am with burial afterwards in Magheragallon Cemetery.

BirdHerd: Another Option for Teams & Groups Using Twitter – BETA INVITES

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos jolie odell Amid rumors and artifacts of Twitter’s testing accounts managed by multiple users, we’ve found a startup focusing on precisely that problem.The biggest and perhaps best known competitor in this space is CoTweet, a truly enterprise-scalable solution for Twitter accounts with multiple users. It’s well-suited to brands or news organizations in particular, but BirdHerd might provide a low-cost alternative for small- to medium-sized businesses or other groups.Here’s how it works: Users sign in via Twitter’s OAuth feature. They then choose which other Twitter users should have the ability to tweet from the chosen account.The other users they choose can then direct message the original Twitter account at any time. The DMs appear in the original account’s timeline with a slash-via attribution system that lets users know who sent the tweet.For example, I gave @Eston access to my account tonight, and he DM’d me this message, which was immediately broadcast to all my Twitter followers: The BirdHerd website states, “At some point in the future, we will offer paid ‘pro’ plans with extra features, interesting stats and quicker response times.” At the moment, all accounts are free with an invite code, and future accounts will always be available free of charge to any user. Additionally, beta testers will receive 2 months of “pro” features free.The app is a collaboration between self-described “code ninja” Colin Brumelle of Mixed Content and design studio twothirty.To access the site and use its awesome, group- and team-friendly features, use the code “rww” to login and set up your account. That code will work for the first 200 users; after that, you’ll have to put yourself on a waiting list and hold your breath until the site goes public. And do let us know what you think of the app in the comments. Guide to Performing Bulk Email Verification Tags:#twitter#web Related Posts last_img read more
