first_imgShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsFollowing the discussions in Norway between the Norwegian Handball Federation and the relevant governmental authorities in the sports and health sector regarding the hygiene concept for the Women’s EHF EURO 2020 in Norway and Denmark, the European Handball Federation issues the following statement:The EHF is fully aware of the situation in Norway, the measures that are in place to contain the spread of Covid-19 and the challenges this poses for the conduct of the Women’s EHF EURO 2020 in Norway and Denmark.However, clarity needs to be sought, in particular for the teams that are scheduled to play in groups C and D, namely Netherlands, Hungary, Serbia and Croatia as well as Romania, Norway, Germany and Poland, currently set in Trondheim.The EHF took note of the Norwegian government’s decision to ask for a refinement of the existing hygiene concept and the announcement not to make a final decision on the concept as such by late this week or even early next week.In order to safeguard the conduct of the Women’s EHF EURO 2020, the European Handball Federation expects a confirmation by the Norwegian Handball Federation, as part of the overall organising committee of Women’s EHF EURO 2020, that matches can be played in Trondheim by Tuesday morning next week (17 November 2020).The teams in question have been informed about the situation and a final decision by the OCs early next week. Nevertheless, the EHF remains optimistic that, with the shared interest of the motivated OCs, it can be managed to have the top level event in the two countries.

Get ready for a low flying plane in the skies over Donegal

first_imgIt’s a case of ‘eyes to the sky’ over West Donegal in the coming weeks as the latest airborne phase of Tellus, a major geological survey of Ireland, gets underway.To gather data, a low-flying plane equipped with state-of-the-art technology will traverse the skies into the autumn months (weather permitting).The aircraft, a white twin propeller plane bearing the registration number C-GSGF, will be based at Sligo airport and survey rural areas at a height of 60m – approximately eight times the height of a standard two storey house, as approved by the Irish Aviation Authority. Dr James Hodgson, Geophysics Programme Manager for Tellus, said “Tellus is an important and exciting project which is helping to unearth significant geological information about Ireland.“By late 2017, we expect to have surveyed 50% of Ireland – with the resulting data helping us to better understand the local environment, soil management and natural resource potential for Mayo. We would also like to thank the local community for their continued support with survey activity.”Tellus is led by Geological Survey Ireland and funded by the Department of Communications, Climate Action and Environment (DCCAE).For more information on Tellus, including weekly flight plans, please visit If you have any concerns about sensitive livestock, please call the Tellus Freephone Information Line on 1800 303 516.
