TO ENGAGE

Broadband: The announcement that the National Broadband Plan (NBP) will be rolled out later this year should be a cause for celebration. Yet concerns expressed by the secretary general of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform about the cost of the project, and about the lack of compatibility with the spatial strategy outlined in Project Ireland 2040, make for uneasy reading.

TO ENTERTAIN

Learning the Ropes: There's a skipping fever taking hold at Gaelscoil Uí Riada in Wilton, Cork. 12-year-old Maria Barry Murphy from sixth class, second cousin of GAA legend Jimmy, is decked out in her full Cork kit, but instead of showing off camogie or football skills, she’s demonstrating “the pretzel,” a perilous-looking one-legged form of skipping.
