Is not a defence, it’s a whine

Neanderthals may have gone extinct through bad luck rather than being outsmarted by Homo sapiens, reserachers claim

British soldiers at the junction of Moore Street and Parnell Street, Dublin 1 during the 1916 Rising. Cannabis plants worth an estimated €12,000 were found last week during searches in Moore Street buildings once occupied by the rebels

And the place where they planned
To make their last stand
Is currently used to grow weed
