Sevilla fear for their Europa League final in Pizjuán

first_imgSevilla is very aware of everything that happens in the offices of UEFA, mainly because he is still alive in the Europa League, where he must face Roma in the round of 16. But it is not the only European issue that generates some concern in Nervión, since Sánchez Pizjuán was chosen to host the final of the Europa League in 2021, something that is up in the air right now.And the reason for the doubts is none other than the real possibility that UEFA permanently suspend all your competitions this season if the coronavirus crisis would not allow you to resume your tournaments. This would open a scenario never seen before, so there are no references to how the European body would act. This year’s final was scheduled to take place in the Polish town of Gdansk, in the stadium that was built for Euro 2012 and whose capacity is similar to that of Sánchez Pizjuán. There is a possibility that, in case of suspension, UEFA decided to keep the venue for this course for the final of 2021, which, a priori, it should delay the year-long decisive match at Sánchez Pizjuán for another year.Last September 24 was the date on which Seville had the officiality of the UEFA that it would host the final of the Europa League on May 26, 2021. The remodeling works of the Sánchez Pizjuán that were already being carried out They aimed to make the stadium look like it should in the aforementioned final, so a hypothetical delay of it would have its positive side here.

‘The time to provide Dementia support funding is now’ – Ian Molloy

first_imgGlenties man Ian Molloy is supporting The Alzheimer Society of Ireland’s call on the Government to invest €12 million towards community services for people with dementia. Molloy, who is the chairperson of the Donegal South West Ógra, has backed the society’s Pre-Budget Submission 2019 which aims to influence and lobby the Government before the Dáil rises for the summer.Mr Molloy, who has lost two grandparents to Dementia, says that state funding is essential to raise the standard of supports in Donegal. He said: “This is an investment that is badly needed and something that I will be lobbing for in the run up to the budget. There’s approximately 1389 people in Donegal with Dementia living at home. Having looked over the figures Donegal has 16 services available currently.  56 is the number for minimum standards which leaves us under the standard by a big margin.”In Donegal, the Alzheimer Society of Ireland say that €154,000 is required to reach the minimum standard of service. Forty-four additional services are needed, including five carer programmes, one social club and six counselling services.  There are 4,167 carers in Co. Donegal currently in need of community service.Mr Molloy said: “I have seen firsthand as someone who has lost two grandparents to the illness the relief these support networks and services gave to my own family it just can’t be quantified. We must improve the services for people who are dealing with Dementia and supports the families, carers and medical professionals at the front line.”The National Dementia Strategy’s mid-term review acknowledges that people with dementia and their families are “still dealing with inadequate services and supports”. It states that additional funding is required and access to community dementia-specific services across Ireland is not equal.“The level of service varies depending on where you live but no county in Ireland has an acceptable level of dementia support. The time to provide funding is now,” said Molloy.‘The time to provide Dementia support funding is now’ – Ian Molloy was last modified: July 3rd, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare 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:dementia supportsIan MolloyThe Alzheimer Society of Irelandlast_img read more
