Chelsea have their work cut out in the Club World Cup final in Japan.Brazilian side Corinthians, roared on by more than 20,000 supporters, put them under plenty of pressure in the first half.The European champions, with the fit-again Frank Lampard restored as captain and David Luiz back in the centre of defence, almost went ahead when Gary Cahill’s close-range shot was stopped on the line by keeper Cassio.An error by Cahill then handed a chance to Emerson, who fired wastefully over.And Chelsea had another let-off when Paolo Guerrero wriggled away from Cahill and Luiz before mis-hitting a shot towards Emerson, whose effort from a tight angle struck the outside of the post.But Chelsea finished the half strongly and Cassio had to produce good saves to deny Fernando Torres, Victor Moses and Juan Mata.Chelsea: Cech, Ivanovic, Cahill, Luiz, Cole, Ramires, Lampard, Moses, Mata, Hazard, Torres.Subs: Turnbull, Oscar, Mikel, Ferreira, Marin, Sturridge, Terry, Azpilicueta, Bertrand, Piazon, Saville, Hilario.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebook

Scholarship award recipients Jade Foynes, Shirley Costelloe and Alan Spillane with Limerick hurling manager John Kiely and LIT President Vincent Cunnane.Photo: Alan PlaceMORE than a hundred students were able to access third level education over the past five years because of a €1 million investment in the Limerick Institute of Technology (LIT) scholarship programme.This academic year alone, 45 students received scholarships – 26 through the [email protected] Student Scholarship Programme and a further 19 through the Higher Education Authority’s 1916 Bursary Fund.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The recipients, along with the donors who have contributed more than €1million to the scholarship fund, were recognised at a special ceremony earlier this week at LIT’s Moylish Campus.Congratulating the scholarship recipients guest speaker, Limerick’s All Ireland Hurling Winning Manager and School Principal, John Kiely, compared them to a “great full forward” taking advantage of every opportunity.“You have demonstrated that you have the work ethic and ability to achieve in your studies over the coming years and in your professional lives, and this scholarship will give you the best opportunity to maximise that potential.“You are about to join an elite group of those that went before you, a group that can and will go on to make significant difference in many fields of work in Ireland, Europe and the world in years to come.”He had also this advice for the recipients:“You have a cohort of a wonderful team beside you so put them to work, play with them, play hard, and get the most out of it.”In its fifth year the LIT student scholarships aims to alleviate financial strain experienced by targeted students, allowing the recipients to concentrate fully on their education and finish their course of study. The programme has proved hugely successful and popular among students who may otherwise struggle to attend college.Social Care Student and Deputy President of LIT Students’ Union, Jade Foynes said, “I may not be standing here today without the support of this scholarship. It has meant the world to me and my family.“I am from Moyross, and I couldn’t be more proud standing here today telling you my story and letting others know there is support available and that education is for all.”“I would encourage all the sponsors to never underestimate the difference you are making by investing in a student’s potential. Your investment changes lives, it most definitely changed me,” she said.Shirley Costello from Scarriff, County Clare was one of the first people to complete her bursary application this year.“The day I got the phone call to say I got the bursary a weight was lifted off my mind. It was the best feeling ever. The bursary allowed me the freedom to focus on college.”Having left school just after her junior cert, Shirley acknowledged education took a back seat for a long time, and a series of jobs left her unfulfilled.Then she opted to change the course of her life and return to education. She was drawn immediately to the renewable energy electrical engineering course at LIT as it would benefit her professionally and benefit the environment, but financing her time in college remained a concern. The 1916 Bursary allayed those concerns.LIT President Professor Vincent Cunnane thanked the donors for both their financial contributions and other opportunities they provide for LIT students and graduates.“While your support relieves students of financial concerns that would impact negatively on their study, your investment in the scholarship and the students goes far beyond that. It is a vote of confidence in the students’ abilities and an acknowledgement of their value to their community, society and the future economy of the region. It is a vote of confidence in the next generation of leaders who may not have otherwise got their chance to shine. This benefits individuals, their families, communities and the region,” he said.by Tom [email protected] Limerick Post Show | FOLM Project Previous article45 hospitalised with flu symptomsNext articleEmergency plan needed to tackle youth crime in Limerick Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie WhatsApp TAGSeducationLimerick City and CountyLimerick Institute of TechnologyLITNews Email Twitter Facebook Women in the Creative Arts to take centre stage at LIT’s International Women’s Day Flagship Event Print NewsEducationLIT scholarships give third level access to 100 studentsBy Staff Reporter – January 26, 2019 1220 RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR LIT Development & Public Engagement Manager, Seamus Hoyne, is awarded the SEAI Outstanding Contribution to Sustainable Energy Award.

Fire prevention is one of the most important topics people can learn about and students at Moundville Elementary School learned about it from their local superheroes, firefighters.11 local fire departments and the Hale County Emergency Management Agency came out to teach kids fire safety tips while showing them how cool it is to be a firefighter. Since the weather is cooling down, firefighters touched on how to prevent fires caused by space heaters and fireplaces. They also stressed how important it is to have a smoke detector.Principal Jonathan Posey said he hoped this will create a good relationship between the kids and their local firefighters.“We are wanting our students to see those community partnerships,” said Posey. “Today is superhero day, it’s part of our homecoming festivities at Moundville this week and we want our students to see that we’ve got superheroes right here in our own community as well.”Russell Weeden, the Hale County EMA director, said that he hopes that they can inspire kids to want to be firefighters themselves when they grow up.
