% Esteemed Advocate of Peace & Veteran Palestinian Negotiator, Dr. Saeb Erekat, Dead at 65 - Diplomat.ie

Here is my coverage of the passing of a great man. I met him only once, but his contribution to peace was legendary.

DUBLIN — Saeb Erekat, the veteran Palestinian negotiator and universally recognised advocate of peace, has died at Intensive Care Unit of Hadassah-University Medical Center – Ein Kerem, Jerusalem. He was 65. Erekat is survived by his wife, two sons, twin daughters and eight grandchildren.

The Fatah Party announced his death citing his battle with Covid-19 only two years after receiving a lung transplant. Erekat was transported to hospital from his home in Jericho on 8 October in critical condition and was almost immediately intubated. According to a media release from Hadassah-University Medical Center, during the course of his hospitalisation, Erekat received intensive treatments, including being connected to an extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) life support machine. Throughout his hospitalisation groups of Israelis sustained a protest outside of the medical centre demanding he be denied even basic medical care in Israel....

This is the anniversary of Fantastic Flavours winning the Food Awards Ireland — Dessert Outlet of the Year for a 2nd time! It was a great night.

Oksana and I also recall the 1st time we won in 2017 when we had the honour of having as our guest Her Excellency Mrs. Olena Shaloput, Ambassador of Ukrainian to Ireland. We were stunned our wee artisanal shop could win a National award that night. But winning twice, again in 2019, was simply incredible.

Here’s to good memories and better days. We look forward to re-opening when the COVID-19 pandemic subsides. See you then. Until that day, stay safe!

Fantastic Flavours' own Oksana Shadrina has been named the Cork Customer Service Person of the Year - 2018 at the Cork Business Awards.

Oksana's contributions to Fantastic Flavours, as a volunteer in the community and as a benefactor, human rights activist, donor and philanthropist to Irish and international causes and charities demonstrate how woman and immigrants to Ireland can make substantial contributions. Moreover, it demonstrates how Ireland can be a welcoming place that embraces those who better our society. Oksana is a credit to women in business and to Ireland, as well as her beloved Ukraine where she hopes to return one day when the nation is free and whole again following the Russian invasion of 2014.

Well done Oksana!

The 2020 Recipient of the "Oksana Shadrina-O'Hurley Scholarship" has been announced as being Ms. Julia Lebedynska.

Julia Lebedynska is entering her 1st-year matriculation for her Master's degree in the Clinical Psychology programme at the Ukrainian Catholic University (UCU). A native of Lviv, Julia also completed her baccalaureate studies at UCU.

One of the most highly respected institutions of higher learning in Ukraine, UCU is built on the foundations of the Greek Catholic Theological Academy established in the late 1920s by Metropolitan Andrei Sheptytsky. The Rev. Josyf Slipyj served as the Academy’s first Rector. After the institution was closed by Soviet authorities in 1944, its mission and function were assumed by the Rome-based Pope St. Clement Ukrainian Catholic University, organized and chaired by Metropolitan Josyf Slipyj. Today, UCU fulfils its mission by serving as an open academic community living the Eastern Christian tradition and forming leaders to serve with professional excellence in Ukraine and internationally – for the glory of God, the common good, and the dignity of the human person.

The Oksana Shadrina-O’Hurley Scholarship was established to provide for the tuition of a worthy student studying at Ukrainian Catholic University, Lviv. The Scholarship seeks to be reflective of Oksana’s values, including excellence in education, superior performance, high moral character and a love for Ukraine as was bequeathed to Oksana by her parents, Volodymyr and Olga. By promoting access to education the Oksana Shadrina-O’Hurley Scholarship seeks to help individual recipients access education, strengthen their faith and build a foundation for personal success which they in-turn might someday use for the betterment of a free and democratic Ukraine and the world.

Oksana, her husband Miceál, and her two children, Lorcán Volodymyr and Bláithnaid Saoirse, congratulate Ms. Julia Lebedynska upon being awarded the 2020 Oksana Shadrina-O’Hurley Scholarship by the Ukrainian Catholic Education Foundation for study at Ukrainian Catholic University.
