Shane Long opened the scoring before Mane doubled the lead, though Kelechi Iheanacho replied for the visitors.

Swansea City dismantled Liverpool to make sure of their Barclays Premier League status. Andre Ayew’s header and a Jack Cork goal put the hosts in charge; and though Christian Benteke headed home for Liverpool, Ayew’s second goal swiftly ended those aspirations. Brad Smith was then sent off for Liverpool, whose hopes of Champions League qualification now rest on winning the Europa League. SUNDAY, MAY 1 ARSENAL 1 NORWICH CITY 0 GOAL:-ARSENAL: WELBECK 59. Norwich moved closer to relegation on an afternoon that saw Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger subjected to calls for his sacking. Gunners fans protested inside and out of the Emirates, though they secured a valuable win with a Danny Welbeck half-volley. The result leaves Norwich in 19th place, two points from safety with three games remaining. EVERTON 2 AFC BOURNEMOUTH 1 GOALS:-EVERTON: CLEVERLEY 7; BAINES 64. BOURNEMOUTH: PUGH 9. Everton manager Roberto Martinez was another to face calls for his head despite seeing his side beat Bournemouth. Tom Cleverley drove in a low shot early on, but within seconds the Cherries levelled through Marc Pugh. Leighton Baines claimed the winner for Everton, but fans stayed behind to protest against Martinez. NEWCASTLE UNITED 1 CRYSTAL PALACE 0 GOAL:-NEWCASTLE: TOWNSEND 58. Newcastle moved out of the relegation zone, thanks to Andros Townsend’s magnificent free kick and keeper Karl Darlow’s penalty save. Townsend gave Newcastle the lead after half-time, but Yohan Cabaye, once of Newcastle, saw his late penalty saved by third-choice Darlow. The win sees Newcastle a point above Sunderland and two clear of Norwich. STOKE CITY 1 SUNDERLAND 1 GOALS:-STOKE: ARNAUTOVIC 50. SUNDERLAND: DEFOE PEN 90. Jermaine Defoe’s added-time penalty helped Newcastle rescue a point but dropped into the relegation zone after rivals Newcastle beat Palace. Marko Arnautovic gave Stoke the lead and Sunderland struggled to create chances in response, until Geoff Cameron tangled with Defoe in the 93rd minute and the former England striker made no mistake from the spot. WATFORD 3 ASTON VILLA 2 GOALS:-ABDI; DEENEY 90, 90. VILLA: CLARK 28; AYEW 48. Troy Deeney’s two late goals denied Aston Villa what would have been only their fourth league win of the season. Ciaran Clark headed Villa’s opener, but Almen Abdi equalised for Watford. Jordan Ayew’s low drive restored Villa’s lead, but Aly Cissokho was sent off with 17 minutes to play. Deeney levelled in added time and within seconds slotted home the winner. WEST BROMWICH ALBION 0 WEST HAM UNITED 3 GOALS:-WEST HAM: KOUYATE 34; NOBLE 45, 79. Mark Noble scored twice to extended West Ham’s unbeaten run in the Barclays Premier League to 10 games. Cheikhou Kouyate headed the Hammers ahead before Noble scuffed a shot prior to the break to extend the visitors’ advantage. Noble added his second and West Ham’s third when he volleyed home from Andy Carroll’s cross. SATURDAY, APRIL 30 Barclays Premier League reviewlast_img read more

DONEGAL SCHOOL ATTEMPT TO SHUFFLE THEIR WAY INTO THE WORLD RECORD BOOKS

first_imgAlmost 800 pupils from a Donegal secondary school are to undertake a World Record attempt – for shuffling!Staff and pupils from the Loreto Community School in Milford will undertake the challenge at the end of this month in their school gymnasium.The pupils and staff have been undergoing a coordinated training regime under the watchful eye of dancers from Dynamic Waves dance group. On the day it is hoped the pupils of the school will ‘shuffle’ at least a minute to break the record.The shuffle is a new dance-step which is sweeping the planet!The Guinness Book of World Records usually request a member of their staff to be there to verify a world record.But on this occasion, Guinness World Record bosses say they are happy to have two members of the Gardai as independent judges. Members of the student council along with teacher Nathania McDonnell came up with the madcap plan for the ‘shuffle.’Ms McDonnell said “The Guinness Book of Records people told us we need at least 250 people shuffling but we’re going to go much bigger than that.“It’s going to be a great bit of fun but we have a bit of planning to do yet to make sure up to 800 people are all shuffling at the same time.“Most of the pupils are naturally shufflers but I think the people from Dynamic Waves are going to have their work cut out for them with some of the teachers,” she laughed.There is even a rumour that principal Andrew Kelly is going to attempt to ‘shuffle.’ DONEGAL SCHOOL ATTEMPT TO SHUFFLE THEIR WAY INTO THE WORLD RECORD BOOKS was last modified: March 1st, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Loreto Community SchoolNathania McDonnellshufflelast_img read more
