Craughwell turn the screw in second half to take the spoils



Alan Clancy of Liam Mellows gives chase to Craughwell's Alan Callanan during Saturday's County Junior A hurling final replay in Loughrea.

Craughwell 1-19

Liam Mellows 2-9

Ivan Smyth in Loughrea

CRAUGHWELL secured Junior A honours in their replay with Liam Mellows as a powerful second half display helped them atone for their 2020 final defeat to Clarinbridge.

The winners fired nine points without reply in an 18 minute spell during the second half which decided a contest that in the opening 30 minutes looked as if the winner would not be known until the concluding stages. The win means Craughwell will now field at senior and intermediate level next year as the club’s stock continues to rise.

The Pat Monaghan and Stephen Glennon managed side survived a challenging opening quarter and the subsequent concession of a soft goal just after the first water break to prevail. A Fergal Healy penalty in the 24th minute gave Craughwell a lead they would not surrender as Brian Dolan’s accuracy up front combined with a rock solid defence proved enough to curb the threat of a Liam Mellows side that simply did not perform in the second half.

They only scored one point from play in the concluding period of action with a late Luke Byrnes 20m free finding the net, but the effort only served to keep the losing margin to single digits. Owen Burke’s side did pile forward after conceding nine points on the spin, but Craughwell looked the fresher outfit and were able to use their pace on the counter attack.

Liam Mellows will look back on the opening quarter with regret as they dominated the action,but were only on level terms at 0-4 apiece when referee Gerry Donoghue blew for the first water break. They were in control of the game, but allowed Craughwell into the contest, mainly through their own poor shooting as they struck five opening quarter wides.

Ocean economy report finds Galway on crest of a wave



Author Dr Colm O'Dowd speaking at the launch of Cuan Beo’s report on the Economic Assessment of the Marine Resources of South East Galway Bay Catchment at the Golf Club at the Galway Bay Golf Resort Renville, Oranmore.

THE Galway Bay marine sectors are ‘well positioned’ to capitalise on a doubling in size of the global ocean economy – to €3 trillion – between now and 2030, according to an influential report published this week.

According to Cuan Beo – a community-based organisation with the aim of improving the economy and environment around Galway Bay – the future potential of Inner Galway Bay ‘is greater and more diverse than we may have imagined’.

The report for Cuan Beo [Living Harbour] – compiled by Colm O’Dowd Research Support Services – looked at what’s called the Catchment 29 area which stretches 117km from the Docks in Galway city along the coastline to Black Head in Co. Clare.

Conducted during the height of the Covid-19 crisis ‘when relatively stable markets had disappeared’, the study however observes that coastal and rural locations regained their popularity, as people were confined to their localities during the lockdown.

“There was time to reconsider and reimagine how our society, economy and culture could change and a heightened sense of awareness of the value of our natural environment emerged.

“In summary, this study reveals the future potential of Inner Galway Bay is greater and more diverse than we have imagined.”

Private Hyperbaric OxyGeneration for wound healing in the West




Mayo Clinics and wound healing

If it’s used in the Mayo Clinics in the USA, it’s sure to be in demand in the West of Ireland. OxyGeneration’s presence in Galway is dramatically changing people’s quality of life. One client had his wound dressing changed 557 days in a row, however after 26 session of hyperbaric oxygenation, the wound closed for the first time. This person did a total of 43 sessions at OxyGeneration and was able to return to work.

If for example, you have a chronic non-healing wound as a result of tissue injury in diabetic foot ulcers, you would use the non-emergency hyperbaric oxygenation at OxyGeneration. The wound could also be vascular insufficiency ulcers, or your wound simply will not heal — hyperbaric oxygenation is the front line treatment of choice for such wounds.

Radiation induced injury 

Also, you may have an internal wound in cancer radiation induced tissue injury. This is an absolute, quality of life opportunity using hyperbaric oxygenation to help tissue injury to heal post cancer radiation treatment or side effects, specifically bladder issues and radiation cystitis and radiation proctitis when the tissue injury is bleeding. Osteoradionecrosis of mandible is another indication as well as incontinence. Some Healthcare insurers cover this wound healing at OxyGeneration.

Conflict of Interest

Brian Lynch discloses a conflict of interest: firstly, as a solicitor practicing in Galway and also as part owner of OxyGeneration, a company providing private hyperbaric oxygenation. This involves breathing oxygen under pressure in a chamber, which has a scientific basis for the known benefits on injured tissue no matter where in the body.

Mr Lynch says: “Hyperbaric Oxygenation is in direct competition with outdated treatments or surgery. As part of the disclosure required for an informed consent to medical intervention, your doctor will tell you of the known benefits of hyperbaric oxygenation. This is an essential part of the overall management strategy for your care. Limb amputation can be avoided as well as a lot of urology surgery. When hyperbaric oxygenation becomes more widely known, it will be the treatment of choice and make a lot of surgery redundant and nurses or podiatrists doing wound dressings redundant”.

Next week, this article will be about men’s issues such as ,erectile dysfunction, prostatitis and avoiding some urology issues.
