He is also alleging that conversations at various prisons were also recorded.The gangland figure was sentenced to life in prison after he was found guilty of the murder of the 28-year-old Garryowen rugby player on November 9, 2008.John Dundon, 30, from Hyde Road in Limerick, was convicted last year and given the mandatory sentence to life in prison, but now his legal team instructed by Mr Devane will set about having the case reviewed and the circumstances surrounding the taping allegations.“While I sympathise with the Geogheghan family obviously. I certainly believe that John Dundon’s telephone calls and consultations were listened to both inside in the garda station and I would go so far as saying also his telephone calls in the prison and to his previous solicitors and also to me,” said Mr Devane.“I am looking at a number of high profile murder cases and I am also looking at some other matters including a couple of rape maters and matters where people have been convicted – I have always believed in the wrong – of IRA membership,” he added.In the wake of the surprise retirement of Martin Callinan from the position of Garda Commissioner amid the prolonged garda sagas, Mr Devane said that the recording of telephone conversation in garda stations was “disgraceful” and said John Dundon’s case would be high on his list of priorities.“I know that prison calls are always recorded and evidence has been gleamed and used in the past even in objections to bail for certain other people because of telephone calls made from the prison to other family members.“It’s an absolute disgrace and to say that the Commissioner didn’t know about that I believe is like the organ grinder not knowing the music that he is playing ….I believe that the current Minister for Justice should do as Commissioner Callinan did and fall on his sword,” he added.The high profile legal aid solicitor has said that he is reviewing a number of cases with counsel that he says were “interfered with” and added that senior garda warned him before that his own phone was being “monitored”.“This is an absolute disgrace. Whatever about my telephone being monitored, I’m not silly enough or stupid enough to advise a client of issues that might be of a sensitive nature over my telephone. But to think that the guards can monitor a conversation that might take place over a telephone or in a garda station is an absolute disgrace,” he said.Mr Devane concluded that he has “suspected for a long, long time and when advising people I have often had to write down my instructions to people so that they would follow rather than saying them out and letting the guards hear the advice I was giving or the answers that I was getting to the questions I was putting to the client.“I have had to write my instructions to the client. That is dreadful in this country where there are laws to protect the citizens against this type of eaves dropping. Watergate eat your heart out!” he added.

White Denim Release New Album ‘Performance’, Share Video From Recent Conan Appearance

first_imgAustin, Texas rockers White Denim have released their newest studio album Performance via City Slang today, August 24th. Consisting of guitarist James Petralli, bassist Steve Terebecki, keyboardist Michael Hunter, and former NRBQ drummer Conrad Choucroun, the quartet’s newest release is a follow up to 2016’s Stiff. Produced by Petralli, Terebecki, and their longtime production partner Jim Vollentine, Performance was recorded at the band’s new studio in downtown Austin, Milk Radio, once an old general store and horse stable constructed in 1902. The building has since been restored and sandwiched in between bars and condominiums.Performance was almost entirely recorded in eight weeks, predominantly at Milk Radio. While White Denim was recording at Milk Radio, people passing by would stop by expecting the building to be some new hipster bar or cafe. Passerbys would stop and stare at the band recording, or even knock on the door to try and see what was going on. White Denim’s songwriting routine was a fruitfully cooperative, jam-heavy process featuring Petralli, Terebecki and Choucroun with a number of different fourth members, as Hunter wasn’t yet fully part of the picture.When asked about the new album’s influences, Petralli said:I spend a significant amount of time sitting in Austin traffic scrolling between ‘50s and ‘80s specialty radio stations. There is something comforting and inherent about the energy and amount of pleasant distortion present on a Little Richard or Jay Hawkins record. Equally, I find the precision and control — from arrangement to the sonics — achieved in ‘80s pop like Squeeze and Kate Bush to be inspiring. The production on Performance is designed to contrast the super-clean and inhuman with the raw and elemental, and in doing so, White Denim has created a densely layered and exhilarating listening experience quite unlike anything heard before.Listen to White Denim’s new album Performance in its entirety below.Last night, White Denim stopped by Conan O’Brien’s late night television show Conan, and performed “It Might Get Dark”. Watch video of White Denim performing “It Might Get Dark” below.White Denim-“It Might Get Dark”-Conan 8/23/2018White Denim is currently out on a worldwide tour in support of Performance.

Tiger documentary debuts in December, Uchitel to speak

first_imgThe project is based upon the book on Woods by Jeff Benedict and Armen Keteyian and includes never-before-seen footage plus interviews with former Woods caddie Steve Williams and six-time major winner Nick Faldo among others.The documentary charts Woods from his toddler days swinging clubs on television through injury fears that left him wondering if he might ever walk normally again to his current comeback, set to resume at next week’s US PGA Memorial tournament.Woods has matched the career record 82 US PGA Tour wins of legend Sam Snead and his all-time major total ranks behind only the record 18 won by Jack Nicklaus.”Since his introduction to the world at the age of two, Tiger Woods has inhabited our collective consciousness as a prodigy, a pioneer, a champion, a global icon, and then a tabloid headline,” the directors said in a statement.”After months of research and countless hours of revelatory conversations, we discovered that he has always been a projection of outsized expectations. His father, his sponsors, and his fans all made Tiger Woods into whom they wanted him to be.”Our goal was to dive deeper and create an unflinching and intimate portrait of a man, who like all of us, is imperfect and inherently human.”Topics : The documentary will debut on HBO on December 13, four weeks after the scheduled final round of the 2020 Masters. Woods is set to defend the green jacket he won last year at Augusta National, completing his return from severe back injuries with his first major win since 2008.The conclusion will air December 20, only 10 days before Woods’s 45th birthday.HBO Sports and Jigsaw Productions will create the biopic with Academy Award winner Alex Gibney among the executive producers and Emmy winner Matthew Heineman and Emmy nominee Matthew Hamachek directing the film.It follows blockbuster ratings for a six-part documentary on Michael Jordan that was released during the coronavirus pandemic while most sports were shut down. A two-part documentary detailing the rise, fall and epic comeback of 15-time major golf champion Tiger Woods will debut in December, producers announced Thursday.Rachel Uchitel, who was at the center of a sex scandal that erupted around Woods in November 2009, will be “breaking her silence for the first time” in the film, according to a release announcing the project.Woods apologized in a February 2010 televised statement for cheating with multiple mistresses on then-wife Elin Nordegren. The couple divorced six months later.last_img read more

Facing Kano Pillars in Sunday’s mouth-watering Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) clash is like any other game, according to the Technical Adviser of Enyimba, Gbenga Ogunbote.Seven-time champions Enyimba confront Pillars, who boast of four NPFL titles, at the UJ Esuene stadium in Calabar in a Match Day 32 encounter as the league enters the home stretch.The fixture has been dubbed the star-match this weekend considering the pedigree and rivalry between the two sides, but Ogunbote is of the opinion that the remaining seven matches this season are equally as important.“We have seven games to the end of the season and every game at this stage is a big game,” the former Sunshine Stars said. “So we are seeing the game (against Kano Pillars) like just any other game. I must confess to you every game at this stage is big.“Every match we play now is important; more importantly the one we will be playing tomorrow (Sunday). The moment we play it, it brightens our chances of getting into the continent. That makes it very, very important.“Like I said, at this stage where you can count the games with your fingers, you should be able to know that every match you play now is important and tomorrow is inclusive.”In an exclusive chat with www.busybuddiesng.com, the Enyimba gaffer stated that his team is ready and fired up for the eagerly anticipated clash against Pillars.“We have the game tomorrow (Sunday) and everybody is in top gear waiting for tomorrow (Sunday). And we’ve done everything humanly possible within the confines of the rules of the game.“I can say we have done everything. All we are just waiting for is tomorrow (Sunday),” Ogunbote declared.The Peoples Elephant will remain 4th on the NPFL table even with a win against the ‘Sai Masugida’ on Sunday while 10th-placed Pillars would move up on the log with an unexpected victory against Enyimba.last_img read more
