This year’s group draw has once more apparently been favourable to Ferguson’s side, with United up against Braga, CFR Cluj and this week’s opponents from Turkey.Ferguson has confessed to having seriously misjudged last season’s competition, in which he experimented with line-ups and rested key players, and the fact that Robin van Persie and Shinji Kagawa both started Saturday’s 4-0 Premier League win over Wigan on the bench is a clear sign the Scot will be fielding his strongest side against Galatasary.“If we don’t go through, we will be criticised and pilloried for it and quite rightly,” said Ferguson. “We’ve had our warning and I don’t anticipate going out this time.“We’ve had opportunities in the competition. We’ve lost two finals to Barcelona and won two in the last decade or so but we want to do better. Certainly, we’ll do better than last year – no question about that.”While Ferguson has also expressed his desire to wrestle the Premier League title from Manchester City this season, there is no doubt he also retains a burning ambition to lead United to what would be a fourth European crown.“The European Cup is incredible,” added Ferguson. “There’s an atmosphere in the build-up to a European final and great charisma about it.“Also, without question, it elevates your status within the game like the Real Madrids and AC Milans. We want to be up there in terms of the number of trophies won in European football.”However, given the experience of last season – in which eventual Premier League champions City also failed to reach the knock-out stages – Ferguson is wary of complacency creeping into his squad.“We’ve seen some examples of that over the last few years,” said Ferguson of the danger of an upset in the competition.“For instance, the Cypriot team (Apoel Nicosia) getting to the quarter-finals and Basel beating us and getting to the next stage against Bayern Munich.“There are a couple of other examples of the lesser-known teams doing well and Monaco played Porto in the final one time, which was a surprise. But, at the end of the day, you always think one of the big ones is going to win it.“It doesn’t do the competition any harm, to be honest with you and who would have predicted Chelsea winning it last season?.“The only thing you can think about is qualifying.”United seem certain to start van Persie and Kagawa against Galatasary, with veteran defender Patrice Evra, also rested on Saturday, poised to return.The Turkish side still remember, with pride, the 1993 Champions League campaign in which a 3-3 home draw, followed by a goalless stalemate at Old Trafford, saw them knock United out of the Champions League on away goals.Fatih Terim, Galatasaray’s current coach, believes his side are capable of repeating that upset.“I don’t need to tell you how Manchester United are a big club,” he said.“We respect them but we don’t fear them. We are going to England for a good result.“Years ago we made history against them. I believe Galatasaray can repeat that success.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, September 18 – Sir Alex Ferguson has vowed Manchester United will not repeat the mistakes of last season’s Champions League campaign as his side prepare for their opening match in this term’s group stages.United host Galatasary at Old Trafford on Wednesday with memories still fresh of last season’s group campaign when Ferguson saw his team fail to reach the knock-out stages from a pool containing seemingly modest opponents in Benfica, Basel and Otelul Galati.

A ‘Donegal Signature Dish’ event has been planned for next week to highlight the most delicious food the county has to offer.All that is good about Donegal food will be showcased at the special event in Harvey’s Point when some of Donegal most talented chefs, food suppliers and trade representatives will be joined by guest food writers and bloggers at the inaugural event.The event which is being hosted by Donegal County Council in association with Donegal Tourism is about celebrating Donegal food and fresh local produce and is a great opportunity to promote Donegal food and people who champion it – chefs, restaurants, suppliers and artisan producers. Restaurants across the county were invited earlier this year and encouraged to submit their signature dishes, which would then undergo a selection to form a menu for the event. The dishes had to consist of Donegal sourced ingredients and feature on the current or seasonal menu.The final tasting menu is a balanced selection of ten dishes from around the county; those dishes will be served on the night and each chef will also have an opportunity to share the story behind the dish with the audience.

The back-end of the works Ford bounced a bit on the road as it looked for grip across the road from the public toilets at the bottom of the hill. The driver’s arms were straight as he braced himself with a firm grip on the three-spoke bakelite steering wheel.He looked both at the road directly in front of him and into the massive hill ahead where the coast road cut its way into the mountain pass. Advertisement The brand new Ford engine revved out to its limit as the driver timed each gear change perfectly.At one stage it felt as if the Ford was airborne for a while, indicated by a sensation you feel in your backside when this happens.Even though we’re climbing the speed is still gathering as we approach Wilhare’s Corner.A local rallying hero PJ Wilhare from Cranford made this corner famous when he put his special lightweight fiberglass Mini off the road in a big way on that corner near the hairpin the first year the hill was used for the Hillclimb. Advertisement Since then many pulled up at the telltale broken barriers to see if they could figure out what happened that day.Flat in TopIf everything is going right for you, those who have won the hill climb or have won the Donegal International Rally, they will tell you that you will be taking Wilhare’s corner in flat top gear and the bravest will not be liftingOff the gasAs our yellow Ford approached Wilhare’s, our pilot decided to give the famous corner the respect he felt it deserved and decided to drop down a gear resulting in the new Ford engine revving out loudly briefly before the driver changed it back up into top gear again all of which took most of the momentum out on the wide fast corner. A German registered Opel on Knockala Coast road taking in the views. Photo Brian McDaidThe cautious respect for Wilhare’s corner was a blessing in disguise because as the Ford negotiated the hairpin something started to rattle in the rear.Was it the drive shaft, the differential, a spring or a shock Maybe? No, it was the fridge! This fridge had slid up to the front of the van.What were we doing taking a fridge up Knockalla, well that was the reason we were there in the first place. The works Ford was, in fact, a Ford from work, a brand new V4 petrol powered Ford Transit Van in ESB standard Yellow and Grey colours registration number VIH 405.We were out with my father delivering merchandise, as he called it. A fridge was to be delivered to one of the very few houses a converted fort on Knockalla Hill and with us on our summer holidays my father took us to Fanad for the spin. The beauty of Knockallla Coast Road. Photo Brian McDaid.When we got as far as the top of the hill to the lay-by with the view of Ballymastocker Bay we pulled in, not as much to enjoy the view but more to re-secure the fridge, which you could say had “moved in Transit” thanks to the excitement of driving up and around the Knockalla Coast Road.The Fridge,The Ford,The Fort,The French Invasion,and Fred.The fridge in the Ford was destined for the Fort, one of several Napoleonic batteries built along the shores of Lough Swilly centuries before to defend the North West of Ireland.It was part of a scheme to fortify Lough Swilly and Lough Foyle against a French Invasion during the Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars.A couple of centuries on that building was still defending its perimeters as we were to find when we arrived at the entrance only to find the fridge would not fit through the tall narrow gateway into the walled pathway that led into the fort.On board a Ford on Knockalla Coast road many years ago It doesn’t get much better than thisOnly when all the cardboard and aero board packing was removed, some of which blew away in the summer breeze down the hillside, much to the amusement of the local sheep who thought it was small white square sheepdogs.We finally manage to carry the fridge, head high up the pathway and into the house.When the fridge finally made it out of the Ford and safely into the Fort on Knockalla it was still minus a plug. While we were offered tea with a fantastic view of Lough Swilly my father Fred fitted a plug which he borrowed from their Hoover.The beauty of Donegal captured from the top of Knockala Coast road. Photo By Brian McDaid.It was nice to see the light inside the fridge come to life when my father plugged it in. The fridge made all the right rattles as it started to cool everything down.As we headed away up on to the coast road again in our transit to complete our spin around tithe famous coast road my father stopped further up the road where he showed us where the ESB had to go across the hillside to take the power supply into the old Fort when they first took the electricity.A tourist on the wall at the top of Knockalla taking in the beautiful view. Photo Brian McDaid.He knew all about the infrastructure of the ESB network here because it was himself that plotted the route for a line into the hill as a young engineers assistant (or a pegger) It was Fred who placed the pegs along the hillside for the crews to come behind him to erect the poles and put in the power supply in not known that he would be back a decade later delivering a fridge to the same address.From Tourists to Frazer Nash racing carsOur story may be different to that of the norm of people that travel over this mountain pass and stopped just to take in the great view I have seen the most beautiful Frazer Nash racing car brave the rain to come to Ireland to drive over the pass to people as from as far away as Germany pull up at the top of the hill at the viewing point and enjoy the view.A Frazer Nash vintage sport car braving the pouting rain to say they passed over Knockala coast road a couple of years back. Photo Brian McDaid.People in cars, on foot and even a schoolmate of my own Harry Boyce who was out enjoying a cycle over the hill.Knockalla is just one of the great roads around the coast of Donegal that people come for near and far to enjoy. A great place to chill but not a great place to deliver a fridge.Happy motoring folks.DD Motoring: Knockalla Coast road-with a twist! was last modified: December 27th, 2018 by Brian McDaidShare 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:dd motoringKnockallamotoring

27 January 2014 The first Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa (BRICS) ministerial meeting on science, technology and innovation will take place in Kleinmond in the Western Cape from 10 to 11 February, the Department of Science and Technology announced last week. Science and Technology Minister Derek Hanekom will host the two-day event, which will be attended by science ministers from the BRICS countries. The meeting is one of the activities agreed to at the 5th BRICS summit held in Durban last year. According to the department, the ministers will table a memorandum of understanding aimed at strengthening cooperation between the five countries in science, technology and innovation. The memorandum will also commit the countries to seeking to tackle common socio-economic challenges “through appropriate funding and investment instruments, using shared experiences and complementarities, the co-generation of new knowledge and innovative products, services and processes, and promoting joint BRICS partnerships with other strategic actors in the developing world”. On the second day of the event, the BRICS ministers will visit the Square Kilometre Array (SKA) site in Carnarvon in the Northern Cape, where the MeerKAT radio telescope, a precursor to the SKA, is being constructed.
