The GHP which offers Internationally recognised Environmental Certification will continue its very popular 2011 Workshop series during October for its members and is also inviting interested hospitality businesses to attend, to find out how easy it is to become more efficient and reduce costs and also achieve recognised environmental certification. The next Workshop takes place on the October 4 next at the Carlton Castletroy Hotel in Limerick commencing at 9.30am.“By adopting the GHP criteria members are also opening up new markets by tapping into the increasing worldwide demand for more environmentally friendly businesses”, said Bergin. “Whilst cost is still the main driver for consumers purchase decisions, customers are definitely becoming more aware of the environmental impact of their lifestyles”. They are conscious of companies that do things right and in brands that share their own values. The advent of social media means that companies must also be more honest with their customers or they’ll be found out very quickly and that is just as important for the hospitality industry as any other, It’s a win win for business if done correctly!”.The GHP workshops are free of charge and open to anyone who might be interested.

Ogilvie stands by ticket situation

first_img The Scottish FA released a statement of its own last week stating that it has “fulfilled our obligated allocation.” And speaking at Hampden Park where he helped with the William Hill Scottish Cup fourth-round draw, Ogilvie was asked if there was any wriggle room with regards tickets for the Irish fans. “No,” he said. “At at the moment the game is almost a sell-out, that’s where we are. “We are working with hundreds of tickets in the restricted view areas. “There are no other tickets that we can issue to the Republic of Ireland. “From the outset we gave them the percentage requirement through the UEFA rules. There is no room for manoeuvre.” Asked about the possibility of Irish fans getting their hands on tickets for other parts of the stadium, Ogilvie said: “We’ll manage the situation. I think there are two things here. “There is a possibility that some Irish fans have bought tickets in some areas of the ground. “We’ll work with authorities to make sure there is no issues. I think we’ve got to look at the positives. “I’d like to think that we have supporters from both teams who can come to a game together. “When we go abroad it’s not unusual for our supporters to be scattered around the stadium and there are no problems there so I would like that to see transmitted back here for the Republic game. “I understand where they are coming from but, in your words, there is no wriggle room.” Press Association The Football Association of Ireland (FAI) is unhappy with their allocation of 3,209 tickets for the Group D match on November 14 and released a statement saying: “It is particularly disappointing that the Scottish FA is continuing to sell tickets on its website after they had told us that the match was sold out. “Many of these tickets are now being taken up by Irish supporters out of desperation, a situation that could be resolved easily by providing adequate numbers of away tickets in a designated Irish section of the stadium.” Scottish Football Association president Campbell Ogilvie has reiterated that there will be no more tickets made available to Republic of Ireland supporters for the upcoming European Championship qualifier against Scotland at Celtic Park. last_img read more

FA charges Huddersfield Town with misconduct

first_img Share Share EFL Championship side Huddersfield Town has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association (FA) following the release of its hoax ‘Paddy Power sash kit’. The charge is centred around a publicity stunt featuring the North Yorkshire side and the Irish bookmaker. The stunt, which saw the release of an unregulated ‘sash’ styled kit, featured a prominent Paddy Power logo printed down the length of the shirt that appeared to break FA regulations.Following a pre-season friendly at Rochdale, which saw The Terriers don the controversial strip, the FA released a statement which seemed to confirm the kit had breached section C.2i of the Kit and Advertising regulations which states no more than 250 square centimetres is permitted for front-of-shirt sponsorships. “The FA has clear Kit & Advertising regulations for all club matchday kits. If we believe that any club has breached these rules we will look into the matter and, if required, will take the appropriate action.”The club were quick to confirm the kit was a hoax and in turn released its official unsponsored strip, with Huddersfield’s commercial director Sean Jarvis commenting: “When we announced the kit, we knew the design would cause quite a negative stir and that was part of the campaign.”  As well as the official release, The Terriers also announced the launch of Paddy Power’s ‘Save Our Shirt’ campaign, however, the charge still remains and the club now have until August 16th to respond.
