Life for ‘middle-man’ in Irene’s murder Tel: 042 9320888. Fax: 042 9329676. Email:;

By Paul Byrne

A 47-year-old man has been jailed for life for the murder of Irene White in Dundalk 14 years ago. Niall Power with an address at Gyles Quay, Riverstown, Dundalk, Co Louth pleaded guilty on Monday to the murder of the 43-year-old at her home at IceHouse, Demesne Road, Dundalk, Co Louth. He is the second person to be jailed for the murder of Irene who was found dead at her home in April 2005 and was described in court as a friend of the White family. A victim impact statement from Irene’s terminally ill sister Anne Delcassian, which was directed towards Niall Power, was read out in court by the counsel for the prosecution. She accused Power of hiding like a coward for the past fifteen years and expressed her disbelief about how a family man could organise the murder of a mother of three. She went on to say that she is currently diagnosed with terminal cancer and had only weeks to live and it was her dying wish that all responsible for her sister’s murder are brought to justice.

Assaults on hospital staff in Louth worrying

Louth TD Gerry Adams has expressed his concern at the number of assaults on HSE staff in the RCSI group which covers Louth County Hospital and Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda. Teachta Adams said: “According to a Parliamentary response to my colleague Teachta Louise O’Reilly there have been 39 assaults on HSE staff in RCSI Hospital Group in the first five and a half months of this year. “Most of these assaults have been on nurses and midwives. The statistics of assaults for all of the hospital groups revealed that 249 of the 279 who were assaulted were nurses and midwives. This is an alarming figure. More needs to be done to ensure the safety of staff,” stated Mr Adams. “Nurses and midwives are central to the delivery of our public health services. It is unacceptable that they should face such high levels of threat and assault. The HSE, and the Minister for Health, need to increase measures to reduce the number of assaults on our front line HSE staff,” he continue and suggested that one measure that could be introduced would be to employ more security staff. “Workers in Louth County Hospital and Our Lady of Lourdes Drogheda do an amazing job in caring for the health needs of patients. They should be able to work in an environment free from threat or physical assault,” he concluded.

Life for ‘middle-man’ in Irene’s murder By Paul Byrne

A 47-year-old man has been jailed for life for the murder of Irene White in Dundalk 14 years ago. Niall Power with an address at Gyles Quay, Riverstown, Dundalk, Co Louth pleaded guilty on Monday to the murder of the 43-year-old at her home at Ice-House, Demesne Road, Dundalk, Co Louth. He is the second person to be jailed for the murder of Irene who was found dead at her home in April 2005 and was described in court as a friend of the White family. At the beginning of 2018 35-year old Anthony Lambe, of Annadrumman, Castleblayney, Co Monaghan, was jailed for life after he pleaded guilty to the murder of Ms White

The late Irene White. in the kitchen of her home. He told the court he stabbed the mother of three 34 times in the kitchen of her home before fleeing from the scene. Her mother, Maureen McBride, who has since died, found her daughter lying on the kitchen floor when she called into her house at lunchtime that day. Mrs McBride lived

in a mobile home in the garden and regularly dropped into her daughter’s home. On the same day that Anthony Lambe was sentenced to life in prison Niall Power gave himself up at Dundalk garda station Yesterday in court Niall Power was described as ‘the middle-man’ in arranging the murder

of Irene White. He told gardaí he was “not going anywhere until I get this off my chest. I’m going to put my hands up, I’m going to ruin a lot of lives here.” He told gardaí that he was asked by another man to have Irene killed and having felt pressurised he eventually paid a sum of money to Anthony Lambe to carry out the killing. Yesterday in court when the registrar read the indictment to him and asked how he was pleading, Power replied, “Guilty”. Senior Counsel for the prosecution, Sean Gillane then read out a victim impact statement which was directed towards Niall Power from Irene’s sister Anne Dalcassian who was too ill with terminal cancer to attend court. She accused Power

of hiding like a coward for the past fifteen years and expressed her disbelief about how a family man could organise the murder of a mother of three. She went on to say that she is currently diagnosed with terminal cancer and had only weeks to live and it was her dying wish that all responsible for her sister’s murder are brought to justice. Irene’s daughter Jennifer McBride who was seventeen at the time of her mother’s murder also gave a victim impact statement on behalf of herself, her brother Damhain and sister Dairine. Jennifer’s siblings were aged just six and four at the time of the murder. “To even think of the torture our gentle loving Mam had to endure in the last moments of her

life will haunt us forever,” she said. “I got to spend 17 treasured years with our Mam filled with memories throughout my childhood. Happy times shared with her. My younger siblings were robbed of those precious moments. “It breaks my heart that they did not have the opportunity to receive or experience the same level of guidance and support and unconditional love that only a mother can give.” “You were such a kind and gentle soul. You are loved and remembered by so many people whose lives you touched. You will never be forgotten. We miss you as much today as the day you were taken from us,” concluded Jennifer as she finished her emotional statement.

Dundalk ready for Champions League challenge By Paul Byrne

Dundalk remain eight points clear in the Premier Division following a 2-2 draw up in Derry over the weekend but thoughts will now turn to Europe as they welcome Latvian champions FC Riga to Oriel Park this evening. Vinny Perth’s side were seeded in the draw for the first time thanks to some excellent results in Europe over the last number of years. Fc Riga are a relatively new club having been established in 2015 after a merger between two of the city clubs- FC Caramba Riga and Dinamo Riga. They play

their home games at the 9500 seater Skonto stadium which is also home to the Latvian national side. The club enjoyed their best ever season last year when they won the domestic double beating six time champions Ventspils by four points before going on to beat the same side on penalties in the cup final. Dundalk will be ready for the challenge having studied their opponents in depth with both Vinny Perth and opposition analyst Stephen O’Donnell travelling to Latvia in recent weeks to scout their adversaries. The Lilywhites could

Dundalk manager Vinny Perth

hardly be in better form going into the game having won fourteen and drawn two of their last sixteen games. And

Perth’s side contain a number of the same players who made history in 2016 by qualifying for the Europa League group stages before becoming the first ever Irish club to earn a point at that stage of the competition. Dundalk drew with AZ Alkamaar as well as beating Maccabi Tel Aviv before putting up brave efforts against Zenit Petersburg losing both games 2-1. Last year was not such a good year for Dundalk in Europe however as they crashed out 4-0 on aggregate in the second qualifying round of the Europa League to Cypriot side AEK Larnaca FC.

Dundalk's participation in the Champions League is worth €800,000 with the winners of the tie guaranteed another €400,000 and even if the League of Ireland champions lose, they are guaranteed a place in the Europa League as domestic champions. Oriel Park will be full to capacity this evening with the game selling out last week with fans eager to cheer their heroes to victory ahead of the second leg in Riga next Wednesday. RTE 2 will have live coverage of the match with the build up beginning at 7:30 and the match kicking off at 7:45pm.

Remembering Brendan (Benji) O’Callaghan —a night of ól, ceol, bia agus craic! A night in honour of the memory of Brendan ‘Benji’ O’Callaghan will take place in aid of The Louth Hospital Palliative Care services. Saturday 13th July 2019 in Dowdallshill GAA Club. Brendan (Benji) O’Callaghan, very sadly, passed away last year after a hard fought and courageous battle with cancer. He personified grace and dignity in the face of the many health battles he faced during his life, not least his final one. During the last 9 months of his life, Brendan was under the care of the Palliative Care team who were vital in helping him keep a good and active quality of life right up to his untimely, but peaceful, passing at 44. In honour of Brendan and the Palliative Care team, his family are fundraising for the Louth Hospital’s palliative care unit – where the county’s five sole, dedicated palliative care beds are located. Specialist chairs (5) for use by patients and their families will be purchased and any additional funds raised will be used for the refurbishment of the ‘Family Room’ and provision of Complementary Therapies for patients under the care of the Palliative team. A night of ól, bia, ceol agus craic – which Brendan famously loved and shared with many!

Vandals target Stephenstown Pond There has been widespread condemnation following an act of vandalism in Stephenstown Pond which saw a number of youths break the barrier into the park as well as agitating the wildlife including swans and their baby cygnets. Geraldine McCullough who is a director at the popular Knockbridge park expressed her anger following the incident while also stating that she was relieved that the swans and their babies are ok after the incident. “We are just all very thankful

that the swans and cygnets are ok after the incident in the early hours of last Tuesday morning. These vandals damaged the barrier arms at the entrance to the park and this comes after a previous incident which resulted in the barrier being repaired just a couple of weeks ago at a cost of €1200. We do not have enough money to constantly clean up after these vandals. Once inside the park they caused damage to the two polythene tunnels we use for growing flowers and plants. They also tried to break into the container and then worst of all

they began to chase the swans and cygnets causing huge distress to the poor creatures. “I just cannot understand the mentality of these people and if this is how they get their kicks then they are a serious menace to the whole community. We’ve had incidents before at the beginning of the school holidays and it is just so frustrating given the amount of hard work that has gone into making Stephenstown Pond a wonderful place to come for all the family. “We’ve recently upgraded our children’s playground and we have

the beautiful willow café onsite which is run by Aoife Byrne. So many people give up their time to try and make Stephenstown Pond as beautiful as it possibly can be and then you get idiots like the one’s we saw the other night who come in and cause damage all over the park. We have contacted the gardaí and we hope that there will be no more of these acts of vandalism in the months and years ahead. The beautiful innocent wildlife we have in the park deserve to live in peace in their natural habitats,” Damaged barrier at the Pond. stated Geraldine.

Dundalk Golf Notes Last Saturday was Scratch Saturday at Dundalk Golf Club as the day was given over to the Junior, Intermediate and Minor Scratch Cups which were played together for the first time. There were home winners in all three competitions with Christy Ward winning the Junior, Padraig Gallagher taking the Intermediate and Captain Pat Davis claiming the Minor. Ward (7) won on a final six hole countback to claim the Junior Cup, sponsored by Park Café, and pip Billy Cairns (6) after both 76. Christy had 13 pars and crucially a birdie two at the par three 17th as he covered both nines in 38. Gallagher (14) had two shots to spare in winning the Intermediate Cup which was sponsored by Deborah and Ultan Herr, who also sponsored the Minor Cup. Gallagher birdied the par three ninth and also had nine pars as he went out in 39 and came home in 41 for a total of 80 shots which was two better than John McKeever (13), Danny Miele (12) and Mark Browne (12). High office is proving no barrier to good golf for this year’s Men’s Captain Pat Davis (18) as he edged out Sean Gallagher (19) on countback for the Minor Cup after both had shot 88 with Fergal McKenna (17) two shot further back on 90 in third. Despite a triple bogey seven at the fourth, Davis produced a very steady round of four pars and 11 bogeys as he covered both nines in 44 shots to take the title. The nett prizes on Saturday went to Sean Hession (8), Gary Connolly (13) and John Oakes

(26). Mark Cumiskey (8) won the Oriel Cup sponsored by Moran CCTV last Wednesday after shooting an excellent score of 67 to beat Oisin Hughes (22) by one shot. Aaron Grant (+1) shot 73 to win the Gross Prize while Hughes, Greenore’s Patrick Lawless (5) and Austin Carroll (12) won the category prizes. Lee Egan (25) won the Juvenile Prize with a 77.

Dundalk FC and Fyffes raise €7k for Temple Street Dundalk FC, in partnership with club sponsor Fyffes, has raised over €7,000 for Temple Street Children’s Hospital under the club’s new purple-patterned ‘third kit’ initiative revealed to fans last March. Worn in place of the club’s familiar white jerseys in EA Sports Cup and the FAI Cup matches, the new purple kit is reproduced in the colours of Temple Street Foundation. Clearing the way for the club’s initiative, club sponsor Fyffes agreed to withhold its trademark from the front of the new kit in order to give full prominence to the hospital. The money raised – which is intended to fund essential equipment and care provided for over 147,000 patients treated by the hospital each year – came from a combination of sales of the new kit, salary donations from players and staff and a bucket collection at a recent match. Dundalk FC chief executive Mark Devlin said: “We’re thrilled to be able to make this donation to Temple Street Children’s Hospital. Thanks to the generosity of our main sponsor, Fyffes, the new purple Temple Street kit really struck a chord with our supporters, who themselves have been extremely generous with their donations. I’d like to thank them

all for their support, along with the players and staff of Dundalk Football Club, who have donated a day’s salary to the cause. Temple Street is a special place. They offer amazing care for kids who really need it, so we’re very proud to support such a fantastic cause.” Responding, Fyffes managing director Gerry Cunningham – himself an enthusiastic proponent of the scheme – praised Dundalk FC management, players and staff for what he termed ‘a truly generous and unselfish undertaking’. “Through imaginative ideas such as the third-kit scheme, untold benefit is brought to those young patients whose recovery depends so much on such activities,” he said. Denise Fitzgerald, Chief Executive, Temple Street Foundation added: “We are honoured and delighted to feature on Dundalk FC’s fantastic third kit and have been overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of the club’s staff and supporters.” With more games to go, Dundalk FC expects to continue fundraising through various activities announced previously.

Building of Dundalk Dog Rescue’s new home to begin in early autumn By Paul Byrne

Dundalk Dog Rescue’s proposed new rescue centre in Dromiskin came a step closer to reality last week when tender documents were sent out with a view to beginning work early this autumn. Committee members are hoping to be up and running by spring 2020. Dundalk Dog Rescue is an

entirely voluntary non-profit making organisation set up in 2005 by a group of ordinary people in the community of Dundalk, Co. Louth and the surrounding areas. Their aim is to do whatever is possible to rescue unwanted dogs from our local Dog Pound and give them a second chance at life. Louth County Council does it’s best to rehome dogs but un-

fortunately due to the sheer volume of dogs entering the pound many dogs are listed for euthanasia to accommodate new arrivals. The new recue centre in Whiterath, Dromiskin will have the capacity to house forty kennels as well as a treatment area, reception and viewing area and an outside exercise area for dogs. Dundalk Dog Rescue which

is entirely run by volunteers have been fundraising since 2017 and according to committee member Bobby Wain they will have a major fundraiser late in the year to help with the costs associated with their new home in Dromiskin. “The fundraising never stops for a group like ours. We are all volunteers and we need to keep on trying

to raise funds to ensure we have enough money to keep our centre open when it opens next spring. Our next big fundraiser is this October when we are going to organise a Strictly Come Dancing event to raise money for the new centre. “We are passionate about our dogs so we thought that this would be a great idea to not only support our lo-

Cllr Erin McGreehan welcomes upgrade of the sewer network in Omeath Councillor Erin McGreehan attended the launch this week in Derry of the SWELL (Shared Waters Enhancement & Loughs Legacy) Project. Cllr McGreehan attended due to her being recently appointed to the board of the East Border Region who are one of the partners on the project. The SWELL is a €35m EU funded project that aims to improve the quality of water in Carlingford Lough and Lough Foyle through the upgrade of wastewater assets on both sides of the border. Cllr McGreehan commented that this integrated cross border approach to make positive changes in the ecological status of our waters is the only

practical way forward as pollution does not respect borders. “This is such a positive move in improving the ecosystem of the Lough. By improving the water quality of our waters we will all reap the benefits and it will have a lasting legacy for future generations. “The works in Omeath will upgrade capacity of the sewer network to transfer more wastewater to the new treatment plant being planned by Irish Water that is in addition to the SWELL Project . This is great news for the area and should work as an example for other areas in the country that need water quality improvements,” she concluded.

Speaking following his attendance at a screening of ‘Resilience – The Biology of Stress and The Science of Hope’, which was hosted by the MACE Project, Councillor Ó Murchú said the ‘Resilience’ documentary was a fascinating insight into the science of negative experiences in childhood, how these experiences

can be minimised and how stress can be treated to improve health and wellbeing. “I am working with many families across Dundalk and the surrounding rural areas which are dealing with poverty, social exclusion, drug abuse and poor education and health standards. “Any additional support to these families is necessary and welcome. This type of intervention could be the difference between a young person fulfilling their potential or following a negative path. “I will be working to ensure that this project is adequately funded

and supported into the future. “The project has received over €5 million in funding from the EU INTERREG VA programme and the Departments of Health in the north and the south of Ireland. “I am delighted that this is a cross border project which will operate across five cross border sites. It makes sense that families in Louth and families in South Armagh and Newry have access to the same supports. “I spoke to Gavin McGee, the Project Coordinator for Newry/ Louth and offered him my support in this role,” concluded Cllr Ó Murchú.

Soccer summer camps kick-off The popular Dundalk FC Fyffes summer football camps held at Oriel Park every year since 2007 have kicked off. Open to boys and girls aged 6-14, each camp is based around structured coaching sessions with qualified coaches and features lots of fun challenges and games – designed to ensure every child leaves with great memories, having made new friends and learnt something new. Each participating child will also receive a full camp kit, certificate of completion and a football, coupled with

the opportunity to enjoy a meet and greet session with some of Dundalk FC’s first team players. Running from 10.30am to 3pm daily, the next three camps will start on July 22, August 12 and August 19. Commenting, Fyffes marketing manager Emma HuntDuffy said: “As an outlet for parents to keep their children occupied and active while school’s out for summer, the camps have proven to be a great way for local kids to keep fit and healthy, improve their football skills and most

important of all – have lots of fun with their pals.” Dundalk FC community officer Liam Burns said: “We are delighted to host another season of Dundalk FC Fyffes summer camps at Oriel Park in 2019. The place comes to life every summer with lots of kids having fun, getting active, enjoying their football and interacting with kids from different social backgrounds. It also gives the kids a great opportunity to interact with their first team heroes to create memories to last a lifetime.”

—this week’s answers—

Hundreds of wellwishers descended upon the Jockeys Bar in Anne St on Sunday evening to say their goodbyes to the very popular Sean and Anita Kelly who are saying goodbye to the bar game after almost half a century in the business. Sean and Anita, originally from Monaghan, took over the running of The Jockeys in 1971 and since then the bar has become established as one of the most popular in the town. The bar has scooped numerous awards over the years both for food and best bar and although Sean and Anita are saying goodbye the bar and staff will remain with new owners taking over the business as of today (Wednesday). According to Sean he was taken aback by the amount of people who turned

up on Sunday night for what turned out to be a very emotional evening for both himself and Anita. “We had a huge crowd in to say their goodbyes on Sunday evening and it was a great evening if not a bit emotional. We had people come from all over the place to say their goodbyes and share their memories of the place. It was not only a night for our regular customers but also to former customers and friends who are no longer with us and we remembered them also. “Myself and Anita will very much miss the place as we made a lot of friends here over the years. We arrived here in 1971 and we did not know one person. We found out pretty quickly that the people of Dundalk are very kind and

Sean and Anita Kelly outside ‘The Jockeys’. thoughtful and just good people. They made it very easy for us to settle in and

it’s hard to believe we have been on Anne Street for almost fifty years.

We feel that the time is right to move on and once again we want to thank every

single person who has come into our bar over the years,” stated Sean.
