Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale

The Metropolitan Borough of Rochdale is a metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester in North West England. It is named after its largest town, but spans a far larger area which includes the towns of Middleton, Heywood and Milnrow, the village of Wardle; the borough was formed in 1974 as part of the provisions of the Local Government Act 1972 and is an amalgamation of six former local government districts. It was proposed that the borough include the neighbouring town of Bury and disclude Middleton; the borough lies directly north-northeast of the City of Manchester and has a population of 206,500. Although some parts are industrialised and densely populated, the borough has the lowest population density in Greater Manchester, with some areas of rural open space including Blackstone Edge and the Pennine hills; the borough, the largest such borough of Greater Manchester, was formed on 1 April 1974, under the Local Government Act 1972, by a merger of the former county borough of Rochdale and, from the administrative county of Lancashire, the municipal boroughs of Heywood and Middleton, along with the urban districts of Littleborough and Wardle.

Prior to its creation, it was suggested that the metropolitan borough be named Chadwick, but this was rejected in favour of Rochdale. The Metropolitan Borough of Oldham lies to the south-east, the Metropolitan Borough of Bury lies to the west; the City of Manchester is to the south. To the north-west is the borough and non-metropolitan district of Rossendale in Lancashire and to the north-east is the Metropolitan Borough of Calderdale in West Yorkshire.

Sydney Wolf Pack

The Sydney Wolf Pack are an Australian junior ice hockey team based in Sydney, New South Wales playing in the Australian Junior Ice Hockey League. They represent one of the two junior ice hockey teams from New South Wales playing in the AJIHL, the most elite level for ice hockey at a national level for ages between 16–20 years old; the Sydney Maple Leafs were founded September 18, 2012 following the announcement by Ice Hockey Australia of the formation of the Australian Junior Ice Hockey League. The team is controlled by the New South Wales Ice Hockey Association. On 14 October 2012 it was announced that Sydney Bears player Steven Adams and Paul Kelly had signed on as coaches for the 2012–13 AJIHL season; the first team in club history: For the 2012–13 AJIHL season The follow up season in the Australian Junior Ice Hockey League saw a lot of change via expansion and renaming of its existing teams. The Sydney Maple Leafs were renamed the Sydney Wolf Pack in September 2013; the changes were made in response to the National Hockey Leagues concern about the AJIHL using their team names and logos but recognised the opportunity to create a new history for the teams through creating their own identity.

In October 2013 the league expanded to six teams with two teams from Perth, the Sharks and the Pelicans, joining for the start of the 2013–14 season. In their first year, the inaugural AJIHL season, the Sydney Maple Leafs wore a uniform that resembled the NHL namesake Toronto Maple Leafs; the key difference with the logo design was the exclusion of the word Toronto within the leaf emblem. The jersey design and uniform otherwise bore close resemblance to the Toronto Maple Leaf design, with the AJIHL logo used for shoulder crests. In the inaugural season of the Australian Junior Ice Hockey League, the Sydney Wolf Pack began as the Sydney Maple Leafs; the beginning of the regular season saw the team not winning a game with the closest contest being an overtime loss to the Sydney Lightning. The Sydney Maple Leafs would record their first win as a club on 8 December 2012 against the Sydney Lightning in a 2-1 victory. Both goals scored in this historic win were scored by forward Dexter Crowe in the 2nd period about 5 minutes apart.

After starting off without a win, the Sydney Maple Leafs would go on to win 4 out of their last 6 games, one of, in overtime. In the post season finals, the Sydney Maple Leafs would continue their improved from by defeating the Sydney Lightning by a convincing 7-2 scoreline in the semi-finals; the finals series would be against the Melbourne Red Wings in a best of 3 format. The Sydney Maple Leafs won the series 2-1 after winning the final game of the series 1-0 from a first period goal by forward Scott Clemie; the follow up season in the Australian Junior Ice Hockey League saw a lot of change via expansion and renaming of its existing teams.

Glashagarriff Bridge, Carhue

Glashagarriff Bridge situated 2.8 km west of Coachford village in County Cork, Ireland is the meeting point of four townlands, two catholic parishes and two civil parishes. Referred to as'Clashgarriff Br.' on the 1841 surveyed OS map, and'Glashagarriff Br.' on the 1901 surveyed OS map, the bridge spans the Glashagarriff River before it joins the River Lee a short distance to the south. Glashagarriff is an anglicised version of the Irish Glaise Gharbh. Smith in 1750, refers to the'Glashigarriff' river; the Ordnance Survey name book gives various versions such as'Clashgorrave','Closhagorrave','Closhagorriff' and'Closhagorriv', describes the river as rising out of the bogs of Doneens and Lyroe, flowing between the parishes of Aghinagh and Magourney, falling into the River Lee to the south. An Irish Tourist Association survey of 1944 refers to the Glashagarriff river as having brown trout and freshwater eels, but no salmon angling, nor permit for trout fishing required. Many surviving bridges in mid-Cork are constructed of stone, arched in shape, late eighteenth or early nineteenth century in date.

Typical features pointed breakwaters. Earlier bridges are narrower, although some were widened at a stage. Carhoo Lower Carhoo Upper Carhue House 1841 surveyed OS map 1901 surveyed OS map
