AN OMAGH priest has taken part in a high powered gathering at The Vatican called by Pope Francis to tackle the scourge of modern day slavery. For the last 14 years Fr Colum Kelly, from Gortmore Park, has been a chaplain with an organisation called the Apostleship of the Sea (AOS) and is based in Port of Immingham on the east coast of England, the largest cargo port in the UK.
DRAMATIC photographs taken by recently deceased Ulster Herald photographer Jackie Sloan have brought back vivid memories of the tension in Omagh on the day after Bloody Sunday in Derry, exactly 46 years ago. There was local and world-wide condemnation after British Army paratroopers shot dead 13 unarmed civilians during a peaceful protest march organised by the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association on Sunday, January 30, 1972.
A MOTORIST has spoken of the “terrifying experience” when his car went on fire as he drove home from work in Omagh. The man, who does not wish to be named, told the Ulster Herald he was driving his Audi A5 as normal when he suddenly noticed smoke coming out of the glove compartment. He recalled, “The fire started underneath the dashboard on the passenger side while I was driving. The whole car went on fire within three minutes.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
