More funding sought to promote historic sites in East Donegal

first_imgHistorical sites East Donegal are not getting their share of funding for tourism promotions, Donegal County Councillor Frank McBrearty has claimed.Additional funding has been sought this week to enhance landmarks in the region such as Beltany Stone Circle and St. Eunan’s Cathedral.Beltany Stone Circle, located on a hilltop in Raphoe, is an impressive Neolithic monument which is estimated to be 5,000 years old. However, local Cllr McBrearty says that tourists are struggling to find it due to a lack of signage. In his call for funding for tourism, culture and heritage, Cllr McBrearty said: “The historic nature of the area is unbelievable but we are not getting our share of the cake compared to the rest of the county.”He asked for the executive to step in an ensure the region receives the same level of support as other areas of Donegal.“Raphoe is the oldest settlement in this county, we have a heritage site in the country that is one of the oldest in Ireland and nothing is being done with it,” McBrearty told the monthly council meeting.As a result of the motion, the council has said it will work with the Heritage Office to identify funding sources to promote the specific sites.

Air Conditioner Performance In Extreme Heat

first_imgDuring the last week of June, many major U.S. news outlets sent reporters to Arizona to issue updates on the area’s extreme heat wave. Outdoor temperatures hit 119°F in Phoenix. Some airplanes were grounded because the hot air was too thin for small jets to take off. Car steering wheels were so hot that some drivers wore oven mitts. Vinyl records delivered by mail arrived warped. Emergency room physicians reported an increase in burn cases: hands were burned when people touched their cars, and children’s feet were burned when they went barefoot outdoors.The reports from Arizona conjured apocalyptic images of a science-fiction future — one in which rising outdoor temperatures make it difficult for humans to leave the safety of an air-conditioned building.The question arises: Can typical split-system air conditioners handle these conditions? Or will extended heat waves require air conditioner manufacturers to design new types of equipment? The compressors will still work To get answers to my questions, I turned to John Proctor, the president of Proctor Engineering Group in San Rafael, California. Proctor is a professional engineer and a nationally recognized expert in residential air conditioning systems.The short answer to my question is that the outdoor units (the condensers) of split-system air conditioners should have no problems handling a heat wave in Arizona. If homeowners feel hot during a heat wave, the problem is rarely due to a condenser or compressor that can’t handle high outdoor temperatures. Instead, problems typically arise from installation problems (for example, restricted air flow to the outdoor unit or poorly designed duct systems).“If you have an old compressor that is unhappy — one that is getting ready to go out — what happens is that at high temperatures, the head pressure… Start Free Trial Already a member?
