Camogie Association chief executive, Sinéad McNulty has hailed the partnership with the GAA that has facilitated camogie and football/hurling double-headers over the years and sees two high profile fixtures this weekend as the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues get underway.
A man who, along with an accomplice, tracked a 72-year-old woman home from Lidl after clocking her bank card pin, stole the card, and withdrew €700 from her bank account in what a judge later described as a “low and wicked crime” that involved “malevolent surveillance”.
A judge has ordered a man facing criminal charges to be admitted into a psychiatric unit and to be placed on a waiting list for treatment at the Central Mental Hospital after his solicitor admitted he had struggled to get him the treatment he needs while in custody.
Noel Baker The director and assistant director of the Residential Tenancies Board (RTB) have apologised for the mishandling of a case in which a bank is seeking to repossess a house but where the householders lodged an appeal and money was taken from their account, only for the RTB to rule that the bank could proceed.
A mother and her son from Cape Clear island off the coast of West Cork have spent a night in custody after being found guilty of harassing another islander over a period of almost two years in what a judge described as a long campaign of “sustained, deliberate, vulgar, and demeaning abuse”.
A truly monumental effort this by Cork City who, two goals down from the first leg, brought a seemingly dead affair roaring back to life by scoring early in both halves in Differdange, only for Progres Niederkorn to grab the consolation goal on the night that meant so much more over the course of the whole tie.
The dream beforehand had been of a box-office clash with Rangers but the reality, on an evening when Cork City repeatedly pressed the self-destruct button, was something more like a nightmare as, after a first half in which the home side conceded two goals and also missed a penalty, the resultant 0-2 defeat gives Progres Niederkorn what looks like full control of this Europa League First Qualifying Round tie ahead of next week’s second leg in Luxembourg.
