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.

AT&T Texts iPhone 4 Owners with Activation Details

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… AT&T customers who have purchased or upgraded to the new iPhone 4 have started to receive SMS text messages pointing them to a newly published resource guide containing “important information about activating your device.” The link directs recipients to the page at www.att.com/iphone4upgradesupport which provides all the information needed regarding how to activate the new iPhone – yet another indication that iPhones may be shipping, as reported elsewhere, a day earlier than previously expected.According to the AT&T activation guide, there are just four “simple steps” to activating your new device. However, as previous iPhone owners know, AT&T’s and Apple’s activation systems tend to get bogged down as a large number of new iPhone owners attempt to activate their phones at the same time. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Last summer, with the launch of the iPhone 3GS, some users reported that it was taking up to 48 hours to complete the activation process. The issues caused by this overload of activation requests have gotten better over the years, at least – the 3GS delays were a vast improvement over the 3G problems that plagued the 3G launch.But when a company sells 600,000 phones on its launch day alone, as Apple has with the iPhone 4, activation issues are bound to happen.…or are they?According to numerous sources, Apple has begun sending out emails to some iPhone 4 customers informing them that their device will arrive on June 23rd – a day earlier than expected. The most obvious reasoning behind these missives is to spread out the activation process over the course of two days instead of one. Of course, new iPhone 4 users are just glad they’ll be getting the revamped device a day early, no matter the reason. And being the recipient of the text message doesn’t necessarily mean you’re among the chosen few to get your iPhone 4 early.
