I hope we see more people glad to crack the nut that is the Market’s Field,” he said.Emphasising the importance of the FAI playing a central role in the playing of soccer in Limerick city, Mr Dowling said he will be organising a meeting with the FAI and other key players in the development of the Market’s Field, including City of Limerick VEC.

They also proposed exchanging $1 billion of outstanding power utility debt for $850 million of new bonds.Prepa, as the agency’s known, is struggling to restore its power grid after the hurricane knocked out electricity across the island.“The bondholders’ proposal is not viable and would severely hamper and limit Prepa’s capacity to successfully manage its recovery,” the island’s Fiscal Agency and Financial Advisory Authority said in a statement. “Such offers only distract from the government’s stated focus and create the unfortunate appearance that such offers are being made for the purpose of favorably impacting the trading price of existing debt.” continue reading »last_img read more
