The funeral service for Noah Donohoe is taking place.

Noah’s body was found in a storm drain in north Belfast last week. Police believe he fell off his bike and sustained a head injury ‘before stripping naked and vanishing’ into the city.

EARLIER:

This morning.

Paul Doherty tweetz:

Iceland Foods at Kennedy Centre, West Belfast will be opening their store between 8-9am for the elderly starting this Tuesday.

The wider public are asked to respect this hour as it has been allocated for elderly people only. Would be great to see other stores now do the same.

Meanwhile…

Last night, Supermac’s announced via Twitter (above) that it would provide free meals to members of the emergency services.

BBC Northern Ireland reports:

A case of coronavirus has been diagnosed in Northern Ireland, the Public Health Agency has said.

Chief Medical Officer Dr Michael McBride said the adult had travelled from northern Italy via Dublin.

He said the patient had contacted a GP and had taken steps to self-isolate.

He said the case had showed a presumptive positive result and in line with established protocols, it had been sent to laboratories in England for verification.

The Sinn Féin motion suggested the Department for Infrastructure be brought to court over its refusal to remove paramilitary flags and banners from lamp posts.

It comes after UVF flags appeared in the Cantrell Close area where they have previously caused controversy.

Last month, the Ministry of Defence spoke out against the unofficial flying of Army flags and emblems, after a number of Parachute Regiment flags and banners were put up.

Unionists opposed the motion, but it passed backed by 34 councillors. Eighteen voted against it.

Anyone?
