An arts director has said the re-opening of museums, galleries and arts centres represents a landmark day for Irish culture. But he said people are desperate now for a return to "the live show" with music, art, drama and exhibitions. The normal indoor venue at Triskel offers a seating capacity of 300. Its indoor venue will be reserved, for the time being, for artists as a work and artistic development space. I think it shows just how much Irish people want and need the arts in their lives."

Candy Montgomery killed her friend Betty Gore on June 13, 1980, shocking the small town of Wylie. Both Elizabeth Olsen and Elisabeth Moss have signed on to play the axe murderer in two different limited series. Their relationship took an irreversible turn in 1978 when Candy collided with Betty's husband Allan Gore while playing a church volleyball game. Allan eventually confessed to having an affair with Candy that he had ended a few months prior — a motive for killing Betty. Hulu picked up Moss's 'Candy' in December 2020, while it was revealed this week that Olson will be playing Candy HBO Max's adaptation of the case.

The Lions kicking coach Neil Jenkins has intimated that the decision to stand down Johnny Sexton for six weeks was a factor in raising questions about the Irish captain’s durability for the Lions tour to South Africa. I agree he’s a fantastic player. We’ve got Dan Biggar in Wales, Finn Russell, Owen Farrell and obviously Johnny. He’s a fantastic player and he’s been exceptional on the last two Lions tours that I’ve been on, he’s been very good with myself. Owen is a fantastic player and been there and done it himself.

New research shows the reasons for abandoning their online shop included high delivery costs (37%) and lengthy authentication processes (24%). And a further one in five people (18%) have logged off due to getting distracted by other shopping or forgetting what's in their online basket altogether. Brits are most likely to abandon a purchase at 4pm and spend an average of three hours and 48 minutes shopping online per week - a 30% jump as a result of lockdown. Marc Pettican, president of Barclaycard Payments, said: "Online shopping has traditionally been the convenient alternative to bricks and mortar. "While shoppers are leaving behind more fantasy basket items as a result, these findings provide invaluable insight that could help retailers buck the trend.

Sharon Peacock, head of the Covid-19 Genomics UK Consortium (COG-UK), said it could be that the virus actually becomes less infectious. But she also warned it could take years for Covid to become like the common cold. "Now, some people have predicted that a virus could emerge that is pretty resistant to vaccines, but we haven't seen any hint of that at the moment. "But what we don't know about this particular variant from India is how transmissible it is, so that's the other key question.

Household wealth hit an all-time high at the close of 2020 as pandemic savings and an increase in property values made Irish people richer than ever. Overall household wealth rose by €24bn in the last three months of the year and by €49bn for 2020 as a whole, although the Central Bank noted these were aggregate wealth effects. The Central Bank said the quarterly increase was due to a rise in cash deposits and the value of housing assets, which each went up by €11.9bn. Overall household debt has fallen 36pc in total in the last 12 years, the Central Bank said. The Central Bank pointed out that the figures measure an aggregate picture of Irish wealth that does not necessarily represent the experience of individual households.

Solidarity-People Before Profit TD, Richard Boyd Barrett, said Mr Varadkar was seeking to act like this is an isolated mistake. Responding, Mr Varadkar told TDs that when such funds were allowed enter into Ireland, the property market was in a very different space.

Responding to Fianna Fáil’s Willie O’Dea, Mr Varadkar said what happened in Maynooth, as reported last weekend, was an unintended consequence.

Ms Justice Tara Burns made the remark in a judgment quashing an order made by the Minister for Justice for the deportation of the 32-year-old woman to Hungary. Outlining the background, Ms Justice Burns said, having qualified as a doctor in Ukraine, the woman returned to her native Somalia to work as a junior doctor in a hospital in Mogadishu. She secured refugee status in Hungary in 2015 but, because she had no accommodation, was unable to find work. Her representations included “excellent” references from academics and medical personnel in Cork where she was staying, the judge noted. The Minister also failed to properly consider the woman’s employment prospects here, she found.

Severe cases of COVID-19 are 2.5 times more likely in men with male-pattern baldness than those retaining a full head of hair, researchers have warned. Severe cases of COVID-19 are 2.5 times more likely in men with male-pattern baldness than those retaining a full head of hair, a study has warned. Specifically, the team reported that some 79 per cent of men with severe COVID-19 had the condition, compared to the 31–53 per cent that would be expected for men of a similar age group. 'Our data show that longer AR CAG scores are associated with more severe COVID-19 disease,' said medical researcher Andy Goren of the California-based Applied Biology, Inc. The findings, he continued, 'indicate that AR CAG repeat length could be used as a biomarker to help identify male COVID-19 patients most at risk for ICU admissions.'
