Liverpool enter the race to sign Rory Donnelly

Liverpool has entered the race for 19-year-old Cliftonville striker Rory Donnelly, who has netted 17 times this season for The Reds, which includes three hat tricks.

Swansea City have had a bid of £100,000 excepted by Cliftonville Chairman Gerard Lawlor, who stated "A number of other clubs have made their interest known to us and as disappointed as we would be to lose a very talented player, we always maintained we would not stand in his way if such an opportunity came along,"

"As things stand, however, only Swansea city has submitted a written offer, which we accepted on Tuesday. I would like to once again place on record my thanks to their chairman, Huw Jenkins, for the respect he has shown Cliftonville Football Club throughout the entire process.

Our current transfer policy, of signing young British talent, puts Donnelly firmly in that category. But it seems we have not moved as swiftly as Swansea for the talented lad, who made his debut for Cliftonville last year against Linfield.

Cliftonville have stated they do not want long, protracted negotiations and have put a date of next Friday (23rd December 2011) for all interested parties to register their interest.

Lawlor said ‘It's not every day you get Kenny Dalglish ringing you and asking how the Reds got on at the weekend. He made it clear that Liverpool want to sign him and that they would be back in touch.’

The Hillsborough Tapestry
A closer look at the beautifully woven work of art in town…

Hillsborough remained in the headlines throughout 2011, not least because of the online petition that triggered calls for the full release of documents for debate, and lately more lame remarks by insufferable former tabloid editors. Meanwhile another hugely successful Don’t Buy The Sun concert was largely ignored by the mainstream media, surprise surprise, as the Justice Campaign and Hillsborough Family Support Group continue to maintain powerful presences in the city and elsewhere.

While many people are inevitably drawn towards the eternal flame by the Shankly Gates at Anfield, there’s another poignant memorial in the heart of the city centre. As you enter Millennium House, currently housing part of Liverpool City Council at the Haymarket end of Victoria Street, your attention is caught by the vivid colours on the wall to the left in the foyer.

The following words appear on a nearby plaque: ‘The Hillsborough Memorial Tapestry was commissioned by the residing Lord Mayor (Councillor Dorothy Gavin) in 1990 in memory of the Hillsborough disaster that took place on 15 April 1989. The work was designed by Mrs Sheila Shepherd and made by Miss Alice and Miss Cecily Taggart at the Metropolitan Cathedral Art Studio and is a symbol of suffering and hope.

‘The deep blue colours depict the River Mersey, while the dark colours above portray the grief and sorrow for those who died. The gold and cream indicate the souls rising to heaven and there is a cross for every person that lost their life. The Shankly Gates represent the love of Liverpool Football Club. The tapestry is on public display as a tribute to the 96 people that died and all those who suffered as a result of the tragedy’.
