(July 27-28) – Ryan McDaniel’s first visit to Lovelock Speedway has him looking forward to a return trip to the Nevada speedplant.McDaniel swept Frontier Days IMCA Modified features picking up $2,000 wins Friday and Saturday night.“I had never been to Lovelock before Friday and this was the first time I’d swept weekend shows with big payouts,” the new Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot qualifier said. “It’s been a long time coming, that’s for sure.”McDaniel won from eighth starting, ahead of James Thibodeaux and Cory Sample, on opening night and from seventh starting, in front of Sample and Joel Myers, on Saturday.A good run on the outside line took him to the front following a restart with seven laps left on Friday. McDaniel then went to the lower groove and used lapped traffic to his advantage in leading to the finish.Rounding out the top five were Robert Miller and Myers.Traffic didn’t do McDaniel any favors while he ran second on Saturday, however, as Sample found the way through quicker and pulled away.A caution erased that big advantage though and McDaniel capitalized, again going to the higher line to pass his way to the front.“My car came in at the better time,” said McDaniel, who weathered a late caution in completing the sweep. “My car was better from laps 15 to 30. It all worked out for me.”Don Childs was fourth and Thibodeaux took fifth.Feature ResultsJuly 27 – 1. Ryan McDaniel; 2. James Thibodeaux; 3. Cory Sample; 4. Robert Miller; 5. Joel Myers; 6.

TWO Greencastle fishermen who landed tonnes of extra fish in Killybegs in 2004 without properly recording it have been given large fines today.Michael Cavanagh was fined €30,000 whilst co-accused Brendan Gill was fined €37,500.Michael Cavanagh – a tireless charity worker who raises money for good causes through his role as The Singing Skipper – pleaded guilty to one charge of landing mackerel and scad from his boat ‘The Father McKee’ without properly recording it in October 2004. Brendan Gill, the 64-year-old skipper of the Brendelen, also pleaded guilty to one charge of failing to properly record a catch in September 2004.It emerged in court today that both men had never hidden the extra tens of thousands of euro they earned from the catch from the Revenue Commissioners, declaring it in their tax returns.Cavanagh, 65, had earned an extra €24,580 from his failure to declare 123 tonnes of mackerel and an extra tonne of scad.Gill, a 64-year-old father of four, had earned an extra €33,251 from his failure to declare an extra 135 tonnes of scad and 50 tonnes of mackerel.Both men had originally faced two dozen charges each.Peter Nolan, barrister for Mr Cavanagh, launched a scathing attack on the justice system saying his client had been tortured by a system which took ten years to come to court.He said his client was not unlike a character from the Frank Kafka novel ‘The Trial’ who was “arrested and prosecuted by a remote inaccessible authority, without him ever being told the nature of the alleged crime or the charges”.He said the monitoring of the fishing industry at the time was “a comedy of errors” overseen by “Keystone cops”.Mr Nolan went on: “The fact is there would be no fishing industry at all if it were not for people like Mr Cavanagh.”He also said his client worked tirelessly for charity, raising €37,000 for them in recent years through sales of his ‘Singing Skipper’ CDs.Both skippers employed a dozen people on their boats, the court heard.Damian Crawford, barrister for Mr Gill, said his client had also had no previous criminal history, had worked hard all his life for his family and his crew.He also said that his client would face difficulties next year because quotas were being cut again.“The fishing season is now down to six months and there is no guarantee that when he and his crew go to sea that they will even return him with a catch,” said Mr Crawford.The maximum fine for the offences is €126,000.Judge Keenan Johnson said both accused men were clearly hard-working family men who contributed to society and to jobs.However he said he had to send a message out to the fishing industry that the courts would view very seriously any breaches of fishing quotas.Judge Johnson said it was clear from the evidence in the case that the system in place for measuring catches in 2004 was under-resourced.He said it was ‘pot luck’ whether or not a catch would be assessed by fisheries officers due to the lack of staff.This had now changed, he said.The judge said Ireland could now ‘hold its head up high’ in how it now dealt with regulations.€67,500 IN FINES FOR GREENCASTLE TRAWLER OWNERS OVER ILLEGAL CATCHES was last modified: October 16th, 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:Brendan GillfinedGreencastleMichael Cavanagh
