The first and most important priority will be to provide our children with as much comfort and love as possible. Children and young people often personalise traumatic events, feeling that they could be at risk. We will need to be prepared to discuss the facts around the murder, but only to the extent our children wish to discuss them. The best way to provide our children with emotional support is to contain and control our own emotions. It is vital we support and protect our children and young people with our love, guidance and honesty.
The same files were earlier sent to Garda Moynihan, upon her request, but heavily redacted. There was an inquisition into her sexual behaviour, use of contraceptives, and other intimate details about her relationship with the father of her baby (a fellow garda). The father was cautioned and fined £90 and Garda Moynihan was to be sacked. During the course of a subsequent tribunal, Joanne Hayes was cross-examined by barristers for five days, including about her sexual history. Joanne Hayes outside the tribunalThe sexual policing, trial, and punishment of women who got pregnant outside of marriage in Ireland was not confined to Church institutions for “fallen women”.
A new initiative between Mayo LGFA and Top Oil will see the county’s senior team become the first ladies inter-county panel in Ireland to have their fuel expenses completely covered. So I made it our mission that it should not cost our athletes to travel to training. An approach was made to Top Oil about the possibility of using fuel cards, where the players could claim back their mileage from traveling to training. “This means that our girls are not out of pocket for their fuel costs when they travel to training. The Mayo ladies will meet Galway in the Connacht Ladies SFC Final on Sunday at 4pm in MacHale Park, Castlebar, with the Tribeswomen aiming for a seventh Connacht title in the last eight years.
Sheedy described Maher’s recent contributions as “exceptional” but was adamant that his departure presents an opportunity for another player to step up to the mark. “I’m devastated and gutted for Bonner,” the Tipperary boss remarked. He was in full flow and a Bonner in full flow is a very difficult man to mark. “He is a unique sort of player, but there are other guys that are young and champing at the bit so we’re not looking to replace a Bonner with a Bonner, you don’t do that. We’d feel he’s back full training this week and available for selection the following week would be the plan.
Cork City manager John Cotter sees the positives and negatives of a Europa League draw that leaves the club in the dark as to whether they will play Luxembourg’s Progres Niederkorn or European debutants Cardiff Metropolitan University FC until they complete their preliminary round second leg on July 4. That’s what we’ll be looking to do to make sure we’re prepared for whoever we have to face. For the side known as The Archers, it was a case of third time lucky, the students — some of whom had exams to do around the game — having failed at the Welsh Premier Division’s Europa League play-off final stage in the previous two seasons. City will host the winners at Turner’s Cross in the first leg of the first qualifying round on July 11. Rovers are away in the first leg while Pats will be home first.
Fifa is conducting racism risk assessments for all 2022 World Cup qualifiers and sending observers to matches where there is a high prospect of discriminatory incidents. Fifa secretary general Fatma Samoura has written to member associations saying there is a particular onus on countries hosting matches to clamp down on discrimination on the road to the Qatar World Cup. For games with a yellow or medium risk, Samoura said Fifa will “continue to assess the temporary dynamics” of the situation to see if observers are in fact warranted. Central to the risk assessment is analysing whether there is a history of discriminatory incidents or violence involving the teams or countries in general, including religious tensions. The letter was sent out three years after Fifa disbanded its anti-racism task, saying it had “completely fulfilled its temporary mission.”
“She will stay in our hearts, forever loved and forever cherished. Boy A was also found guilty of Ana’s aggravated sexual assault in a manner that involved serious violence to her.

Irish universities show little sign of reversing their decade-long decline in new global rankings. Of the eight ranked Irish universities, three improved, three declined, while two remained stable. Ben Sowter of QS said larger class sizes were now a critical issue facing the Irish university sector. There will always be fluctuation in international university rankings but significant improvements will only be achieved with a sustained increase in investment,” she said. The Irish Universities Association has called on the Government to “stop delaying” a decision on a proper funding model for Irish third level.

A Pink tour needs very little promotion in Ireland because the American singer almost always sells out in record time here and this evening’s show in the RDS, which sold out in 30 minutes, is no exception to this. Dressed head to toe in sparkling black sequins, she bounds about the stage during Beautiful Trauma, swinging out of moving fluorescent pink streetlights and dancers and seamlessly slipping into Fred Astaire choreography.
