    'You called me nebulous!': Juncker explains remarks after heated exchange with Theresa May goes viral

    PRESIDENT OF THE European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker has attempted to clarify his remarks after a video showing a heated exchange between him and British Prime Minister Theresa May. May confirmed that she had a “robust discussion” with Juncker after footage emerged this morning of the pair having a heated row at an EU summit. As the leaders gathered in their conference room, May was filmed by the EU’s in-house TV crew confronting Juncker after he called the UK’s position on Brexit “nebulous”. Instead of the anodyne pleasantries the leaders normally exchange in front of the cameras, a visibly angry May confronted Juncker to demand he explain his comments. “What did you call me? You called

    PIC: Garda in Kerry pull driver over and make startling discovery in the back seat

    Oh dear... The Garda Traffic Corps will be as busy as ever this Christmas season, and this week they made a very depressing discovery during a routine traffic stop. This is far from the first time we've told a story like this, you might remember a van stopped and seized in Kildare with a staggering amount of things wrong with it. Remember this one, with no licence but loads of extra drugs on board? Or this one, with the open bottle of wine in the cup holder? Or maybe this one, because the driver was committing one of the worst speeding offences of the year? Most recently we had this Waterford driver stopped for using a mobile phone while driving and was found to have A LOT of drugs in their system.

    These are the dumbest passwords of 2018

    California [United States], December 14 (ANI): Some people never learn. Software company SplashData has released its annual list of the top 100 worst passwords used in this year, and unsurprisingly, the list is not surprising. Taking the crown is the five-time winner in a row, "123456", followed by the very obvious "password". These two passwords have continued to show up at the top spots since five years. On number 3 and 4 are inevitable combinations of the top worst password, that is 123456789 and 12345678. If that wasn't enough, on number five is 12345. 111111 is also in the top 10 as is sunshine, qwerty, and iloveyou. Despite the constant threat to security, the list is proof that users continue

    History is made as a girl plays Mary in school nativity!

    Finding someone to play the part of Mary in the school Nativity Play is never easy when there are no girls among your pupils.

At that start of the school year, staff and teachers at Scoil Cholmcille welcomed a new intake of pupils and with many local families availing of the opportunity to send their sons and daughters to the one school under the new Co-Ed system.
