Both men were banned from driving for ten years.This Wednesday before Mr Justice Brian Cregan at the High Court in Limerick, Mr Cleary opened civil proceedings against the MIBI for what his counsel, Gerry Tynan SC, said were significant damages the Limerick man was entitled to.Mr Cleary is claiming that he was not the cause of the accident and should be compensated for the back injuries he suffered in the accident and for the ongoing “depression, shock and upset he has suffered to this day because of the loss of the life he has been blamed for”.Michael Gleeson SC, counsel for the MIBI, said the defence will argue that “racing” was a factor in the fatal collision but essentially the MIBI, has been left to “pick up the pieces” as Roman Andrew absconded.The case is expected to last three days and will hear evidence from expert witnesses including Garda PSV forensic collision investigator, Mike Reddy, who attended the scene in 2006.

first_img Comments are closed. GuruOn 1 Jul 2003 in Personnel Today This week’s guruGuru: the thinking-man’s GuevaraDisciples, admirers and fully paid-up members of the Guru fan club couldnever accuse their hero of arrogance. Even Guru himself once believed he was wrong, but soon found he wasmistaken. With these humble inclinations, Guru was shocked to hear that al-SaadiGaddafi, son of the Libyan dictator, has started trials with Italian Serie Afootball club Perugia. Previously, Gaddafi was captain and striker of Tripoli football clubal-Ittihad, and the evidence seems to point to a talented and successfulfootballer. However, the truth is a little different. Apparently, 30-year-old Gaddafi had a habit of awarding his team with medalsand trophies regardless of whether they had played any games, let alone won anytournaments. As chairman of the Libyan Football Association, he sacked the Libyan coachwho dropped him from the national team, despite the team seeing a dramatic risein fortune after he was sidelined. His strike rate is attributed to opposition players running away rather thantackling their president’s son. To Guru, this has strange echoes of Ugandan dictator and all-round nutcase,Idi Amin, who among other things called himself ‘Conqueror of the BritishEmpire in Africa’, ‘King of Scotland’ and ‘Lord of All the Beasts on the Land,and Fish in the Sea’. Such flagrant exploitation of position must be stopped. Guru wants to hearabout your colleagues and superiors and their abuses of power. All replies willbe kept anonymous. Guru: one man’s terrorist; another man’s freedom fighter A fate far worse than European… To join Europe, or not to join Europe; that is the question. Or so youthought. The issue has been settled. Guru has found that the British worker isquickly becoming… (clap of thunder)… a European. Surely not, you cry. Well let’s look at the evidence. A survey by the CIPDhas found a third of British companies have sacked staff for misusing e-mail.The chief abuse: sending porn. That will be the Dutch influence then. Furthermore, research has established that 63 per cent of staff pulling asickie admit hang-overs are the main reason for absence. Here, it is clear theGermans are asserting their culture on us, as their workers are the laziest inEurope and take an average of 43 days holiday a year. What about new findings that say 60-90 minute ‘power-naps’ couldconsiderably enhance your performance? As soon as the Spanish get to work, they take time out for a snooze in orderto prepare for the arduous siestas ahead. So, viva Britannia! Finally, somehow scientists have discovered that moaning staff may besuffering from post-traumatic embitterment disorder (PTED). This illness makes staff feel helpless and aggressive and affects dailyperformance. Could this be due to pressure from Italy, allegedly the unhappiestnation on Earth? Then again, perhaps not. Judging by the amount of whingers around, PTED (or‘dramatic inability to accept our own shortcomings and responsibilities’),could have much more sinister ramifications. We might not be turning into Europeans after all; we could be changing into…(more claps of thunder followed by lightening, plagues, and flooding ofbiblical proportions)É Americans. Telly icon goes West …and as if that wasn’t bad enough, another cultural icon has gone Stateside.Bob the Builder has left for the lucrative industry across the pond underthe guise of ‘Bob the Construction Worker’. Guru feels something has been lost in the translation and wonders whetherthe job description has changed. Moreover, are Bob’s vehicles going to have tochange to left-hand drive? He has clearly taken on a voice coach too, as he will soon sound far morelike Harrison Ford than Neil Morissey. Robert (as he’s known to his mother) seems to be going the same way as suchclassics as the Lion, the Witch and the Closet, and Dickens’Cross-Denominational Inclusive Wintertime Carol.
