PIC: MAXWELLPHOTOGRAPHY.IEThe impact of aviation, with Shannon Airport’s role pivotal, in the development of Ireland has been recognised in a major award, ahead of projects such as the state motorway programme and even the introduction of the Smoking Ban.The development of Shannon, Dublin and Cork airports has been recognised as the most influential project undertaken in Ireland over the past 50 years by the Irish Chapter of the Project Management Institute (PMI).Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The ‘Expansion of Ireland’s International Airports’ project was announced as the winner of special PMI anniversary accolade at the Ireland Chapters’ annual National Project Awards on Thursday, November 14, at the Dublin offices of award sponsors PwC in Spencer Dock.The ‘Expansion of Ireland’s International Airports’ was chosen by public vote from a stellar shortlist of eight from nearly 100 initially suggested projects. The shortlist included the Guinness Storehouse; Introduction of the Smoking Ban; Luas Light-rail System; Redevelopment of Croke Park; Regeneration of Dublin Docklands; State Motorway Programme; and The Wild Atlantic Way.Welcoming the award, Shannon Group Chief Executive Mary Considine said: “We are very proud of the influence Shannon Airport has had and continues to have on Ireland’s economic success. Shannon is now and always was an innovator; it’s in our DNA, from the establishment of the world’s first Duty-Free shop in 1947, now grown into a multi-billion dollar global industry, to being the first airport in the world, outside of the Americas, to provide full US Preclearance facilities, making arrival in the US easier and faster. More recently we were also the first airport in Europe to establish an airport sensory room for our customers.“This year we celebrated the 80th anniversary of the landing of the first passenger aircraft, and as a central core of Shannon Group, the airport continues to be a driving force for economic growth in the West of Ireland. It does this through the delivery of global air connectivity to enhance the region attractiveness as a location for FDI and indigenous companies and boosts the tourism industry by providing overseas visitors with gateway access to the Wild Atlantic Way.“Shannon was the birth place of aircraft leasing and today we are continuing to support Shannon’s aviation cluster through our International Aviation Services Centre (IASC). We are very proud and grateful for the honour bestowed on us by Irish public, and of the role that Shannon Airport, through our dedicated employees past and present, has played in growing the Irish economy over the past 50 years.” WhatsApp TAGSairportbusinessClareindustryLimerick City and CountyNewsShannonTransporttravel Facebook Limerick businesses urged to accept Irish Business Design Challenge Exercise With Oxygen Training at Ultimate Health Clinic center_img Previous articlePike Overcome Ballynanty with Controlled DisplayNext articleAlby Mathewson set to leave Munster on Saturday Staff Reporter BusinessNewsShannon Airport’s influence has been central in Irish aviation – Shannon Group CEO Mary ConsidineBy Staff Reporter – November 18, 2019 432 Ann & Steve Talk Stuff | Episode 29 | Levelling Up Twitter Linkedin Print Limerick on Covid watch list TechPost | Episode 9 | Pay with Google, WAZE – the new Google Maps? and Speak don’t Type!last_img read more

first_imgSerra Degnan received a pass, looked for seams and teammates, weaved around a Louisville defender and passed the ball. As Lies Lagerweij pushed up on offense and trailed, Degnan retreated and settled into defensive mode. She waited for the counter-attack that could easily disrupt SU’s momentum and result in a goal for the then-No.7 Cardinals.Degnan has been one of No. 4 Syracuse’s (10-1, 3-1 Atlantic Coast) most reliable players down the stretch of the season, acting as both a facilitator and defensive anchor. As Lagerweij and Roos Weers step forward to help SU’s offense, it is Degnan’s job as a midfielder to reposition and not leave any holes open.Focusing on counter-defense can make or break a team during, as any open holes can be easily taken advantage of. Midfielders must keep an eye on the opposing attack pushing up, making sure they are back on defense to stop any counter-attack.“We could not do it without (the) midfielders,” Lagerweij said when the defensive backs push up on offense. “If a defender pushes up, a midfielder will drop back. It’s like a see-saw”Degnan helps SU connect its offense, but she’s forced to be cognizant of interceptions, which can allow opponents to get behind her before she drops back. But, at the same time, she must keep an eye on where the ball and opposing players go. Degnan said she has to be judicious with when she has to run to save her energy.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJessica Sheldon | Photo EditorShe handles the ball well and shows good judgement but Degnan doesn’t take many shots. She has scored three goals on just five shots this season. Her shot percentage of 60 ranks first on the team, a near 18 percent better than Lagerweij at No. 2.During the team’s last home game against Louisville, Weers committed a foul that resulted in a penalty corner for the Cardinals. Visibly upset, Weers ran over to the referee and started to discuss the play. Degnan was quickly by her side, helping calm down Weers and leading her away to get ready for a corner the Orange eventually stopped.Degnan has re-proven herself as the leader on the defending national champions. She wears the captain’s band and is not quiet on the field.“She’s always been a leader through her work ethic,” head coach Ange Bradley said. “You see the missing tooth (entering the ACC tournament) that happened in training practice that she was diving for a ball to score a goal.”Since her freshman season, Degnan has started every game. That year, she started in 16 of 20 games. In each game, she’s been active defensively and offensively. Her versatility has been a huge contribution to an Orange team that has lost just two games over the past two years.“She’s a cog in our engine,” Bradley said. “She’s always been a voice but (now) being able to look after the group, she has a lot of support.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 6, 2016 at 12:09 am Contact Charlie: [email protected] | @charliedisturcolast_img read more
