Appearing as a guest on The Graham Norton show, Amanda revealed a cheeky nod to Simon by flashing her thigh, and showing off a fake tattoo of Simon’s face.

  • Irish Echo | Now you see them (votes) now you don’t

    Irish citizens living in the United States are barred from voting in Irish elections. While few Americans would ever question the right of Americans to vote no matter where in the world they live, quite a few Irish would question the right of the overseas Irish to have a vote in any form of Irish election or vote, be it Dáil, Seanad, presidential or in a referendum. The lack of voting rights is clear evidence of this antipathy. At the same time, just about every significant Irish political leader of the last couple of decades has been in favor of granting at least limited voting rights to the overseas Irish.

    DEVELOPER Suneil Sharma has declined to comment this week on his full plans for the controversial €100 Horizon Mall development on the Dublin Road. A spokesperson for Mr Sharma said he intends to hold a press conference in Limerick in the coming weeks regarding the former Parkway Valley site, but no date or venue has been specified.

If built, the development is anticipated to include the biggest Marks & Spencer outlet outside of Dublin, another major tenant and 37 retail units, which many fear will hamper continued efforts to attract greater investment in Limerick city.
