    Irish man (or Northern Irish man) wins the Irish Open? He deserves the applause.
    Tipp beat Cork – unexpected? Tyrone destroy Derry – kinda expected!

    3,129 “L” drivers get penalty points for driving unaccompanied. In u.k if you drive unaccompanied you are summoned for no insurance as well and disqualified for at least 6 months. Insurance companies in Ireland are utterly irresponsible and greedy.

      In the UK… Lol. The gobsh*tes who grabbed power decided they knew better. And it’s only now you’re realising what’s good for you in this, the year of the “celebrations”? (comes with the added gift of Oglaigh na hEireann officers on their mobiles complete with hands in pockets)

      Your comment is written like someone who thinks there is law and order in Ireland.

      Half-assed press releases about doling out penalty points to L drivers is good smoke screen to cover up the lack of enforcement of much bigger crimes. Penalty points is one of those water cooler topics that plebs can’t resist talking about. Lotto chat is another favourite. It’s easy to issue penalty points. Not so easy to do a bit of forensic accounting, keep track of jihadists and/or break up armed international drug gangs or prostitution rings (there’s so much prostitution going on in Dublin at the moment it’s becoming “normal” now). The resources simply aren’t there. And why would a garda put themselves forward for meaningful work in a broken system that pays you €35k a year that just about pays your bedsit rent? And yet they do it because they want to do the right thing and they will stick at it till the very end. I wouldn’t do it. I really wouldn’t. The whole Ireland project needs to collapse completely before anything good can emerge.

    Guardian: Austria on knife edge.

    Freedom Party’s Norbert Hofer looks set to become Europe’s first far-right head of state since the Second World War. Why does this surprise anyone? Because of the immigrant crisis the far right is rising all across Europe and the schengen agreement is close to collapse.

    Independent.co.uk: Legal highs to be banned.

    The argument against this ban is that it will just move underground and cites the European Commission saying that post ban between 2011 and 2014, Ireland experienced Europe’s second largest increase in legal high use among 15- to 24-year-olds. Really?
