  • Pharmacist 'didn't know allergy jab was for a child'

    A pharmacist who refused to dispense an EpiPen adrenalin injector without prescription to the mother of a teenager who later died from an allergic reaction told an inquest the “dynamic” would have been different if he had known it was for her daughter. David Murphy told Dublin Coroner’s Court that when the mother of 14-year-old Emma Sloan came into Hamilton Long Pharmacy on O’Connell Street on December 18, 2013, to request the pen – an adrenalin shot which reverses the effects of anaphylactic shock – he was not told it was for her daughter, Emma.

  • McClean: I was hung out to dry by Sunderland over poppy row

    James McClean believes he was "hung out to dry" by Sunderland over his decision not to wear a Remembrance Day poppy on his shirt. The 25-year-old Republic of Ireland and Wigan winger hit the headlines in 2012 when he opted not to wear the specially embroidered shirt. McClean, a native of Derry, finally explained his reasons in an open letter to then Wigan chairman Dave Whelan in November last year, but claims he was not allowed to do so when the storm first broke.

  • George North knocked out cold; Twitter argues over red card

    George North was knocked out for the third time in two months on the rugby field last night in an incident which resulted in a controversial red card for Wasps' Nathan Hughes. Hughes was sent off for kneeing the Northampton and British Lions winger in the head as he scored Saints' and his second try. The Wasps number eight complained it was unintentional, but after watching replays on the big screen, referee Craig Maxwell-Keys decided to issue a red card five minutes before half-time. After suffering concussion in Wales's opening Six Nations match against England, when he was knocked out twice, there were worrying scenes as North lay motionless on the ground.

  • The new London Irish

    Irish photographer Kim Cunningham’s latest project, photographs of the new London Irish – creative young Irish people who’ve moved to the British capital – line a wide corridor in the London Irish Centre in Camden. Cunningham has been living in London for 17 years and was invited to take part in the project to mark the 60th anniversary of the centre. Unlike the subjects of her recent photos, when Cunningham came here in 1997, she found herself very much alone in the big city with no Irish friends. In an earlier award-winning project, Holy Joe’s, Cunningham photographed older Irish people in St Joseph’s Irish Social Club in Highgate.

  • Islamic fighters seize major Syrian city of Idlib

    Islamic fighters led by al-Qaeda’s branch in Syria have seized almost full control of the north-western city of Idlib, taking over major roundabouts and government buildings in a powerful blow to President Bashar al-Assad whose forces rapidly collapsed after four days of heavy fighting, opposition activists and the extremist group said.

  • Consternation over new Foynes to Limerick road

    HUNDREDS of people across County Limerick have been attending meetings this week to express their anger, dismay and unhappiness about the new or upgraded road that is planned to run between Foynes and Limerick. “The mood has been one of confusion and anxiety and some despair, and that is down to the fact that the proposals have not been communicated well by the National Roads Authority,” Cllr Emmett O’Brien told the Limerick Leader this Wednesday. Unfortunately, he added, councillors are taking the brunt of this and are being left to do the job which should have been done by the NRA and the consultants and road designers who drew up the plans.
