first_imgNewsBreaking newsResidents put in fear over large gangsBy Staff Reporter – March 27, 2014 722 by Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up RESIDENTS in the Garryowen of Limerick are being terrorised and live in fear of a gang of up to 80 youths who congregate every night, according to a Fianna Fail TD.Deputy Willie O’Dea says that residents have told him of the escalating numbers that gather every night and although he has seen groups numbering half of what is claimed, he says the matter is very serious and requires more action by An Garda Siochana.“I’ve been told that up to 70 or 80 people congregate and I don’t know if that is an exaggeration but I have certainly seen a crowd gather there myself that must have numbered 40 or 50 so it is quite a serious situation.Speaking this week, Deputy O’Dea added that gardai are unable to deal with the gang which he claims is responsible for vandalising property.Anti-social behaviour in the area is now escalating and Deputy O’Dea warns that a rapid and more robust response is needed to tackle and dissuade the group from congregating.Asking the gardai to step up their presence and action in response, Deputy O’Dea called for “a more robust, more direct and a more effective response” to tackle the issue.He said that is what “is going to be needed here, but I wish the gardai would get on and do it because it is a serious worry to a large amount of people who are struggling to get by and pay their mortgage etc – they don’t need this extra burden.” Email Facebook Advertisement Twittercenter_img Linkedin Print WhatsApp Previous articleLimerick teenagers voice concern over social issuesNext articleCouncillors express support for sulky racing track in City Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ielast_img read more

Merton College holds onto Norrington top spot

first_imgHardworking Mertonians across the country will be feeling smug today thanks to news that their college has topped the 2007 Norrington table for the second year running. Magdalen College is runner-up in the league of undergraduate degree results, with a score of 74.81 – just under two points behind Merton’s 76.63%. Harris Manchester comes bottom for the third year running, kept company by Oriel, another college all too familiar with the bottom five.The table has been a regular feature of college rivalry since the 60s, when it was invented by Sir Arthur Norrington as a way of comparing the finals results of Oxford’s colleges. A score is compiled by awarding five points for every 1st class degree obtained, three for a 2:1, two for a 2:2 and one point for a 3rd. The total is then expressed as a percentage of the highest possible score that the college could have achieved that year. Until recently the table was compiled unofficially from publicly posted pass lists, but the fact that students can ask for their names to be withheld from these lists led to complaints that the system was unfair. In 2005 the University decided to publish its own, official version of the league.Some critics remain, including those who feel the table gives an unfair advantage to colleges with higher numbers of science students, as subjects such as Mathematics and Chemistry usually produce a higher number of first class degrees compared to the arts.You can view the official Norrington table here.Cherwell24 is not responsible for the external content of these linkslast_img read more
