Industrial estates in Dublin could be rezoned for much-needed housing. Dublin City Council says the capital will run out of residential land in four years and brownfield sites must now be considered. The city council's head of housing, Brendan Kenny, that will pose a challenge. Mr Kenny said: "A very significant amount of houses, thousands of units, could be built on these but it won't be as simple as that. "The land is owned by private owners and in lots of cases many of the industrial estates are owned by maybe dozens of different people, so it won't be easy to pull all this together."

A new study suggests the Leaving Cert is leaving students stressed. Dr Burns said: "Another aspect about the huge emphasis on memory recall is that it's a huge source of stress for students and we know that families have been through the stress that these students go through when they're facing up to the Leaving Cert. [/quote]"It's this big volume of information that they have to cram into their heads which is a big source of the stress." Dr Burns said: "The Leaving Cert is a memory test and it is really a senseless burden on student memories. "This is a major inequality in the Leaving Cert system."

By Adam SchupakOn the practice-putting green before the final round of the 100th PGA Championship, instructor Claude Harmon III and caddie Ricky Elliott teased Brooks Koepka about his final round pairing with Adam Scott. Scott, the 38-year-old Australian who won the 2013 Masters among 14 PGA Tour titles, was Koepka's childhood idol. So, too, was a rejuvenated Tiger Woods, the golfer that inspired Koepka to play the game. Koepka blitzed the course on Friday, tying a PGA Championship record of 63 and followed it up with 66 to claim the 54-hole lead. In doing so, Koepka became the fifth player to win the US Open and PGA Championship in the same year.

Business group Irish Business Against Litter’s (IBAL) first nationwide survey on our rivers, beaches, and harbours found that almost 40% of all areas surveyed were deemed littered, with just four of the 50 sites deemed clean to European norms. In what is set to be an annual survey, IBAL commissioned the Environmental Education Unit of An Taisce to monitor beaches, harbours, rivers, and their immediate environs during the summer. Just one beach, at Salthill, was deemed clean, while the popular resorts of Lahinch and Bundoran were both littered. “If we can call our towns clean, we cannot say the same for the areas around our beaches and rivers,” he said. Mr Horgan said he hopes the new campaign focusing on waterways will also put a focus on plastic litter which is threatening the marine environment.

By Adam SchupakJust one month ago at the Open Championship, Shane Lowry commented that the game wasn't loving him and he wasn't loving the game. Lowry started strongly with a 17-foot birdie putt at the first hole, but gave it back with a bogey at the sixth. He charged into contention with a 23-foot birdie putt at 12 and rolled in a 53-footer for a deuce at the par-3 13th. But that was the closest Lowry would get as he made two late bogeys at Nos. "I said it to Alan and my dad driving in, no matter what happens it's been a great week, and it has," Lowry said.
