Monday's Evening Round-up: Climate plan; Health workers' strike; Mohammed Morsi dies

So that’s nearly Monday wrapped up. Here’s some of the stories we published on irishexaminer.com today which we hope will help you make sense of it all this evening.

TO INFORM

Climate Plan: The Climate Action Plan launched by the government today envisages almost 1 million electric vehicles in Ireland within the next decade; bans on oil boilers in new homes from 2022, and for gas boilers by 2025; and the phasing out coat and peat-fired electricity generation, among other measures.

Strike action: Strike action involving up to 10,000 health workers is set to go ahead on Thursday after talks ended without agreement at the Workplace Relations Commision.

Morsi dies: Egypt's ousted president Mohammed Morsi has collapsed during a court session and died, according to state TV.

Profit warning: Shares in Europe's leading airline groups - including Ryanair and Aer Lingus-owner IAG - plummeted on the back of a profit warning from German carrier Lufthansa.

Rossies: A most stunning comeback by Roscommon, matched by an equally stunning collapse from Galway.

TO ENGAGE

Majella Moynihan: Either the standard of Garda record retention is poor or certain files just get lost, writes Michael Clifford.

Mary Lou: Sinn Féin never imagined their recent election results would be so poor and must now figure out how to get the electorate back on side, writes Political Editor Daniel McConnell.

TO ENTERTAIN

#TopGear: Viewers said the BBC had “cracked it” as Andrew “Freddie” Flintoff and Paddy McGuinness took the wheel on Top Gear.

Making Cents: With school holidays underway, many families around Ireland are currently preparing for their annual summer break. There are some tasks that are particularly important — and organising your travel insurance should be one of them.
