"I know I’m from Dublin, but I’ve lived here for the last eight years, and with my fiancée Lisa and daughter Beth born here, I know we will be back again. I’m from Munster and I’m a Limerick man now, and it holds a special place in my heart."
A Cork couple are running the Cork City Marathon in memory of their baby Beth, a man has been arrested in connection with the shooting dead of a former IRA commander in Belfast, the people on the Vote No posters are in favour of marriage equality and the Cork school friends who share family links with the Lusitania.
Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney (and his daughter Beth) were on hand to congratulate Pat and Derek Frawley, from Croagh, Rathkeale, Co Limerick, and their cow handler Stephen McLoughlin, when they won the prestigious Maverick Golden Vale Cup, presented by Kerry Agri Business at Charleville Agricultural Show last weekend.
Pitched as a romantic comedy about a couple with commitment issues, The Five-Year Engagement (15A) is in fact a drama about how Tom (Jason Segel) copes — or fails to — when he’s asked to put his career as a chef on hold in order to further that of his fiance, Violet (Emily Blunt).
