  • Emotional scenes in Limerick court for repossession of 200 homes

    HEART-BREAKING scenes were witnessed in Limerick Circuit Court, where 219 applications to repossess homes were taken against individuals and families across Limerick. Just two orders were made against defendants who appeared before the court, but up to two dozen more are likely to be enforced at the next court hearing on May 8 amid hundreds of cases. In a number of cases, people who failed to appear have been summonsed to appear in court, and consent has been given for court proceedings to be nailed to their doors, after registered letters in the post were returned undeliverable. A number of protestors, some with the Irish Democratic Party, attended the proceedings, and challenged Fianna Fail deputies Willie O’Dea and Niall Collins who appeared on the front-pews of the public gallery to support those at-risk.

  • Buddy Holly plane crash probe may be re-opened

    US transportation safety investigators have said they are reviewing a request to re-open a probe into the 1959 airplane crash that killed musicians Buddy Holly, JP Richardson, better known as ’The Big Bopper,’ Ritchie Valens, and their pilot. The original investigation 56 years ago conducted by the Civil Aeronautics Board blamed the crash on the pilot’s decision to embark on an instrument-guided flight he was not certified for and, secondarily, on poor weather briefing. Numerous conspiracy theories have sought to explain why Holly’s Beechcraft Bonanza 35 crashed in February 1959 – including a suggestion a shot from Holly’s handgun killed pilot Roger Peterson. The National Transportation Safety Board received a request recently from pilot LJ Coon to reconsider the decision, the Mason City Globe Gazette reported.
