Infantile myofibromatosis

Infantile myofibromatosis is the most common fibrous tumor of infancy, in which eighty percent of patients have solitary lesions with half of these occurring on the head and neck, 60% are present at or soon after birth. Less infantile myofibromatosis presents as multiple lesions of skin and bone with about 1/3 of these cases having lesions in their visceral organs. All of these cases have an excellent prognosis with their tumors sometimes regressing spontaneously except for those cases in which there is visceral involvement where the prognosis is poor. Infantile myofibromatosis and the classic form of mesoblastic nephroma have been suggested to be the same disease because of their similar histology. However, studies on the distribution of cell-type markers indicate that the two neoplasms have different cellular origins. Skin lesion List of cutaneous conditions mesoblastic nephroma

1997 All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship

The 1997 All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship—known as the Bórd na Gaeilge All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship for sponsorship reasons—was the high point of the 1997 season. The championship was won by Cork; the match drew an attendance of 10,212 the second highest in the history of camogie. The 22-year-old Sharon Glynn scored 2-12 in the semi-final including a 56th-minute goal just as Kilkenny were clawing their way back into the game in the semi-final at Loughrea. Wexford were outplayed by Cork in the second semi-final at Páirc Uí Rínn. Angela Downey described the final as a slow-paced match and a poor game. Although Lynn Dunlea stretched Cork's lead to double scores, 0-14 to 1-4 20 minutes into the second half the game had an unexpectedly exciting finish with Therese Maher being denied a match-saving goal by the Cork goalkeeper Cora Keohane. Pat Roche wrote in the Irish Times: Weathering a storm of Galway onslaughts in the closing 10 minutes had been an achievement in itself. Avenging last year's defeat by Galway was sheer joy for the team - and for the supporters it was a delight to watch the skills of goalkeeper Cora Keohane, defenders Denise Cronin and Sandie Fitzgibbon, garnished by the delicate scoring touches of Lynn Dunlea, The timing of her scores in the second half was as crucial as the points themselves, as they staved off a threatened Galway storm.

The best example of this came in the seventh minute of the second half after Denise Gilligan smashed home Galway's first goal, leaving only three points between the sides. Dunlea added a second to take the good out of that Galway goal and was on the mark again inside the last five minutes when the defiant Galway women got the deficit down to four points with a goal from substitute Veronica Curtin. Galway manager Tony Ward said: We threw it away in the first half. We have no excuses, we never played as well as we can."It's a double disappointment, I suppose, to lose two All-Irelands back to back. Still, I don't think; that extra bit of experience and luck saw them through, but we gave them a good match all the same. Camogie Association All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship: Roll of Honour

Catholic Church in Moldova

The Catholic Church in Moldova is part of the worldwide Catholic Church, under the spiritual leadership of the Pope in Rome. In 1227 the current territory of Moldova joined the diocese of Milkova, formed by Pope Gregory IX. After the Mongol invasion, Diocese of Milkova ceased to exist. In 1370, Pope Urban V formed diocese of Seret, which included today Moldavia. In 1413 a diocese was founded in Baie. At the beginning of the 19th century, Moldova was part of the Apostolic Vicariate of Moravia. On April 27, 1883 Pope Leo XIII established the Diocese of Iasi in Romania, which included most of the current territory of Moldova. In the diocese were active Jesuits who established numerous religious and charitable institutions. North Moldavia was logged in Kamenetz-Podolsk diocese. On July 3, 1848 after the concordat between the Vatican and the Russian Empire was formed Diocese of Tiraspol, which Cathedra at first was in Kherson was moved to Tiraspol; because of the Crimean War, its Cathedra was transferred to Saratov, formed after the Tiraspol deanery, which included all today's Moldova.

After 1917, the Diocese of Iasi had jurisdiction in Moldova. During World War II, Moldova was part Transnistria diocese. During the Soviet Union era, the Catholic Church in Moldavia was limited. Catholic parishes in Moldova since 1945 belonged to the Archdiocese of Riga. Before 1970, the territory of Moldova had only one Catholic church in Chisinau, at the local cemetery. In 1979, Soviet authorities had banned the only Catholic priest in Moldova. After the formation of an independent Moldova, on October 28, 1993 was established the Apostolic Administration of Moldova which on 27 October 2001 was converted into a diocese with direct submission to the Holy See; the first bishop of the Diocese of Chişinău is Anton Coșa. Around 0.5% of the total population of the Republic of Moldova is Catholic and the country forms a single diocese, the Diocese of Chişinău. At present, Moldova has one Catholic diocese, 13 parishes, 11 diocesan priests, 13 regular priests, 22 monks and 43 nuns from various monastic orders.
