first_img Pinterest Twitter Home Gaelic Football Club Football Previewing tonight’s Laois Intermediate football final between Rosenallis and Clonaslee Gaelic FootballClub FootballSportGAA WhatsApp Facebook Twitter WhatsApp Pinterest Just tghis week, we took trips to Rosenallis NS and Scoil Bhride in Clonaslee where the excitement was palpable.Back in the 2000s, Clonaslee and Rosenallis joined forces in hurling and, as Tinnahinch, reached three senior finals.They lost twice to Castletown in 2001 and 2002 before losing again to Rathdowney-Errill in 2006.On the football field, their meetings have been rare enough. Clonaslee have spent the majority of the last decade yo-yoing between senior and intermediate.While Rosenallis were Junior champions in 2016 where they went on to win the Leinster competition.En route to the semi final of this competition, Rosenallis enjoyed routine wins over Annanough and The Rock – scoring 5-30 in the process.They fell at the semi final stage last year to Mountmellick Gaels but Portlaoise proved no match for them this year as they won 2-14 to 0-5 to reach the final.As for Clonaslee, their journey to the final has had a few bumps but also some high points along the way.They won the Division 2 football title at the end of July but then lost to the same opponents, Portlaoise, in Round 1 of this competition a week later.But they then came through a tough encounter with Timahoe to get themselves back into the championship. They scored an easy victory over The Rock in the quarter finals then to progress to the semi final where they scored a seven point win over 2018 defeated finalists Mountmellick.Discipline has been Clonaslee’s problem with two red cards in the Portlaoise defeat and one against Timahoe – but they kept their full compliment on the field against The Rock and Mountmellick where they won easier.Clonaslee also have received a boost as two players, William Murray and Darren Hogan, who were banned after illegally playing in a Junior C hurling final against Rosenallis earlier this year, have had their suspensions reduced and are free to play.John Rigney, Glen McEvoy, Jack Owens and Will Young will all be integral to how Clonaslee play. While the C-Fennell brothers (Ruaidhri, Cathal and Fiachra), along with John Lennon, Paddy Keating, Ronan Murray and Eoin Dunne will be very important for Rosenallis.The weather forecast isn’t great and that may well suit Clonaslee better but Rosenallis’s athleticism may just be the telling factor in the end.Verdict: RosenallisSEE ALSO – Meet the man behind the Laois football team with the longest winning streak in the county – the great PJ Mullaney of Castletown Previous articleDeaths in Laois – Saturday, September 28, 2019Next articleFr Paddy: Know the importance of pressing the pause button LaoisToday Reporter TAGSClonaslee v RosenallisLaois IFC By LaoisToday Reporter – 28th September 2019 center_img GAA GAA GAA RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Facebook Previewing tonight’s Laois Intermediate football final between Rosenallis and Clonaslee Kelly and Farrell lead the way as St Joseph’s claim 2020 U-15 glory There is a huge double header of football action in O’Moore Park this evening with the Intermediate and Junior football finals down for decision.Here, we take a look at the IFC final between Rosenallis and Clonaslee.Laois IFC Final – Clonaslee v RosenallisIn O’Moore Park at 7.15pmNeighbours will go head-to-head this evening as Rosneallis take on Clonaslee for Intermediate honours in what promises to be an exciting affair.

Kevin Spacey to face felony charge for alleged sexual assault; posts bizarre video as Frank Underwood

first_imgFrazer Harrison/BAFTA LA/Getty Images for BAFTA LA(NEW YORK) — Actor Kevin Spacey will face a criminal charge for the alleged 2016 sexual assault of an 18-year-old man.Spacey is scheduled to be arraigned January 7 in Nantucket District Court in Massachusetts on a felony charge of indecent assault, following a hearing that was held last Thursday.TV journalist Heather Unruh held a press conference in Boston November 8th of last year to announce that in July 2016, Spacey allegedly got her then 18-year-old son drunk, and fondled him in a Nantucket Island restaurant in which the young man worked.“The complainant has shown a tremendous amount of courage in coming forward,” said Unruh attorney Mitchell Garabedian, in a brief statement Monday to ABC News.  “Let the facts be presented, the relevant law applied and a just and fair verdict rendered.”News of the pending criminal charge comes on the same day that Spacey posted his first message to Twitter since October 29, 2017.  In a three-minute video titled ‘Let Me Be Frank’ that’s heavy with subtext and double meaning in the wake of the announcement of the criminal charge, Spacey affects the persona of his former House of Cards character, President Frank Underwood, who was killed off prior to the show’s final season after Spacey himself was fired from the show in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations. Spacey stands at a kitchen sink, wearing a Santa Claus-print apron with a partially carved turkey at his right elbow.  Voices and laughter, as if from unseen party guests, drift in from an adjacent room. “I know what you want,” Spacey begins as Underwood.  “Oh sure, they may have tried to separate us but what we have is too strong, it’s too powerful.  And after all, we shared everything, you and I.  I told you my deepest, darkest secrets.  I showed you exactly what people are capable of.”Spacey goes on: “Of course some believed everything and have just been waiting with bated breath to hear me confess it all.  They’re just dying to have be declare that everything said is true and that I got what I deserved.  Wouldn’t that be easy if it were all so simple?  Only you and I both know it’s never that simple, not in politics and not in life.  But you wouldn’t believe the worst without evidence, would you?  You wouldn’t rush to judgments without facts, would you?  Did you?  No, not you.  You’re smarter than that.”A bit later, Spacey declares: “Because I can promise you this: If I didn’t pay the price for the things we both know I did do, I’m certainly not going to pay the price for the things I didn’t do.”The video ends with Spacey saying: “Despite all the poppycock, the animosity, the headlines, the impeachment without a trial — despite everything, despite even my own death, I feel surprisingly good.  And my confidence grows each day that soon enough, you will know the full tru–“There follows a long pause, after which Spacey continues: “Oh, wait a minute.  Now that I think of it, you never actually saw me die, did you?”  Spacey then slips on Underwood’s class ring from his fictional alma mater, The Sentinel, and ends with: “Conclusions can be so deceiving.  Miss me?” A Netflix spokesperson told ABC News they had nothing to do with the video.The Unruh accusation came on the heels of a litany of sexual assault allegations against Spacey that began when Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp accused Spacey in a Buzzfeed piece of making a sexual advance on him in 1986, when Rapp was 14 and Spacey was 26.  Rapp claimed a drunk Spacey carried him to a bedroom and climbed on top of him after a party.  Both were appearing in Broadway plays at the time.Since then, Spacey has been accused of either inappropriate behavior and.or sexual misconduct by numerous people, including some staffers on House of Cards.  Spacey was missing from the show’s final season this year after he was fired in the wake of the accusations. England’s Scotland Yard opened an investigation after an alleged victim told officers Spacey performed a sex act when the younger man fell asleep at Spacey’s residence, during the time the actor worked at the Old Vic.  The theater itself in November, 2017 announced an internal investigation revealed at least twenty people over a period of 18 years reported being the subject of inappropriate behavior by Spacey, including during the decade before Spacey was the Old Vic’s artistic director. Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
