The figure from the Irish Petrol Retailers Association, seen by the Sunday Business Post, works out at 2,500 euro per station.

    Aer Lingus flight forced to make emergency landing at Dublin after bird strike

    The plane was headed for Philadelphia. An Aer Lingus flight was forced to turn back and make an emergency landing after a bird flew into one of the engines earlier on Saturday. The Boeing 757-200 aircraft, whose flight number was EI115, took off from Dublin Airport at 1.36pm bound for Philadelphia. However, the plane didn't even make it out of Irish airspace before the bird strike forced it to come back down. In total, the plane was in the sky for less than half an hour. The strike caused a flame-out of the right engine. Nobody was injured in the incident. Aer Lingus typically operates a maximum of one return flight on Saturdays to and from Philadelphia, and the return flight EI114 has been cancelled

    Open winner Shane Lowry in profile

The fact that Lowry is from Offaly in the Republic of Ireland, rather than Northern Ireland, could not have mattered less as the 32-year-old became the fifth Irishman to lift the Claret Jug after Fred Daly, Padraig Harrington, Darren Clarke and Rory McIlroy. Clarke, McIlroy and Portrush native Graeme McDowell had carried the hopes of those dreaming of a Northern Irish winner of the first Open staged outside Scotland or England since 1951, although only McDowell made the cut. “Those guys are from here,” Lowry acknowledged after

    Ireland's ambassador to the UK says a Northern Ireland border poll would 'degrade' attempts to resolve Brexit

    IRELAND'S AMBASSADOR TO the UK believes that a poll on a united Ireland would “degrade” attempts to resolve the ongoing impasse over Britain's departure from the EU. Adrian O'Neill told BBC Radio 4′s The Week in Westminster programme that the current priority for the Irish government was to restore the Northern Ireland Executive at Stormont. There has been speculation that Britain leaving the European Union could eventually lead to the unification of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Last year, Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald said a no-deal Brexit would bring the timeline for a border poll on a united Ireland forward, while a number of public polls have also suggested some support for the idea
