Retaining our office in SkyCourt means that we can maintain the link with the retail community, the commercial heart of Shannon.“It’s a new era for the Chamber; a time to plan for bigger and greater in the next decade. Our founding board set the foundations for what we are and where we are today and it’s at a time like this that I get the opportunity, on behalf of the board, to thank our founders, most especially, Michael Guinee, chairman, CEO and founder of Ei Electronics and Paddy Purcell, chairman and founder of Mincon, for their entrepreneurial foresight; both continue to take a great interest in what we do and were very supportive of this expansion,” added Ms Downes.Shannon Chamber chief executive Helen Downes and president Julie Dickerson (front row) with Ray O’Driscoll and Matthew Thomas of the Shannon Group and membrrs of Shannon Chamber board .Welcoming the Chamber to Shannon Airport House, Ray O’Driscoll, managing director, Commercial Properties, Shannon Group plc said: “They arrive at an exciting time in Shannon Commercial Properties’ journey as we regenerate the Free Zone and rebrand our €25 million first phase redevelopment as Gateway West in the Shannon Free Zone.

Authorities warn against ‘porch pirates’ this holiday season

first_imgAs the craze of Black Friday and Cyber Monday pass, many people are receiving deliveries to their homes in the coming weeks and authorities are warning of the possibility for stolen packages. Not only did she lose the gift, but said, “it hits your heart really hard, especially the fact that my parents were saving it up all year and they don’t have a lot of money.” Local Mother Micalya Robertson said she’s fallen victim to this kind of thief, “my mother had been nice enough to save up for the whole year, money, $200, it was on a Walmart gift card and unfortunately while I was at work one day, somebody stole it out of my mailbox.” “One of the best ways that people can protect themselves is just through tracking their packages, knowing when things are going to be delivered,” Barcek added. (WBNG) — Authorities are warning against ‘porch pirates’ as you order gifts this holiday season. Detective Barcek said delivering packages to work is a good way to avoid package thieves. Broome County Sheriff’s Office Detective Matt Barcek said, “you’re always going to see an increase in the amount of larcenies around this time because people are getting more stuff delivered to them.” “You can also have them diverted to a facility for those companies where you could then pick them up which is the safest way,” he added.center_img He says the so-called ‘porch pirates’ are not shy this time of year. Now, Robertson doesn’t send packages to her home, but rather her work. Since that change, she’s been holiday theft-free. Officials recommend keeping you property well-lit and said cameras can be helpful. “We’ve seen these criminals being so brazen, they’ll come out in broad daylight and just take things.” If you think a package of yours was stolen, authorities say first check with your carrier to make sure it was brought to the right address. If your package was stolen, get in touch with police as soon as possible.last_img read more
