MUM KNOCKED DOWN BY DRUNK DONEGAL DRIVER DEMANDS NEW SAFETY MEASURES ON BEACH

first_imgA mother, who was knocked down along with her four-year-old daughter by a drunk driver from Donegal, has called for a safety review of the beach in County Derry where it happened.Paul John Doherty, 31, from Ballynahone in Fahan, Donegal, was sentenced on Monday to 21 months in prison. He pleaded guilty to seven motoring offences on Benone beach and at Seacoast Road on 21 July 2013. Diane Wilkinson’s daughter Abbie sustained a broken collar-bone in the incident.Mrs Wilkinson and her husband, Richard, have asked Limavady Borough Council to review safety measures on the beach.“Everything happened so fast,” Mr Wilkinson told BBC Radio Foyle.“We were down at a caravan and we went a walk on the beach before we went home.“He just missed another child. Our Abbie had a black eye and was badly shaken. She lost consciousness in the ambulance too at one stage.”Diane Wilkinson told Radio Foyle: “You don’t expect this to happen on a beach. You don’t think it will happen to you.“Our other son witnessed the whole thing and he had nightmares. He had to go to counselling classes and was wetting the bed at one point.“We have been back to the Magilligan end of the beach since but it was at a quiet time.“It took Abbie half an hour before she get out of the car. It was horrible.“When she did get out, she didn’t want to walk on the beach, she had to be carried.“I don’t mind cars being on the beach but someone needs to be there watching them. A safety review is needed.“It’s one of the best beaches on the north coast but it needs to be patrolled better. I wouldn’t want this happening to anyone else.”Mr Wilkinson said of Doherty: “The man wasn’t a young inexperienced driver. He’s 31. He should’ve known better.”MUM KNOCKED DOWN BY DRUNK DONEGAL DRIVER DEMANDS NEW SAFETY MEASURES ON BEACH was last modified: April 8th, 2014 by John2Share 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:benoneDohertydrink driverFahanlast_img read more

AAU has broadened the picture by surveying its 60 U.S. members. (Its two Canadian members—McGill University in Montreal and the University of Toronto—were not included.) The figure of 10,000 comes from a tally of 50 institutions. Some 27 institutes requested that their data not be published, AAU says, either because of low numbers that could identify individuals or for other reasons. The Trump administration’s immigration policies have sparked public debate and protest. Sixty top U.S. research universities have roughly 10,000 students and researchers on campus from the seven countries covered in the travel ban announced last month by President Donald Trump.The new data are included in an amicus brief filed yesterday by the Association of American Universities (AAU) in a suit pending before the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York (Darweesh v.Trump). Several tables included in the brief detail the number of students, faculty members, postdocs, and other researchers from the seven Muslim-majority nations at 23 universities that are members of AAU (see graph, below). Last week a federal appellate court in San Francisco, California, blocked implementation of the 27 January executive order, which the Trump administration says it will reissue next week in a way that it hopes will pass legal muster.The AAU brief argues that one big reason U.S. higher education is the envy of the world is its “ability to attract the very best students and faculty from the United States and other countries.” That ability, in turn, “depends on ensuring predictable travel to and from the United States.” Any obstacle to the free flow of people and ideas, the brief asserts, could jeopardize U.S. global leadership in higher education and research.
