  • 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. Emma’s mother Caroline Sloan, from Drimnagh, Dublin 12, said she told pharmacy staff the EpiPen was for her daughter.

  • Ireland and Poland renew friendship that has brought fond memories for blazers

    The Poles had been back in international football for a decade by the time the game took place and their first post-war attempt to qualify for a World Cup, which included a 2-1 win over the Soviet Union in front of 93,000 in the same stadium where Ireland played, had only ended the previous year with a play-off defeat by the same opponents in “neutral” East Germany. The second is that while there may well have been some sort of significance to the religion thing – this weekend’s meeting with Poland will be the 26th between the two countries, matching the current record of games against Ireland held by another staunchly Catholic country, Spain, with whom the FAI also arranged many games while the country was being ruled by a brutal dictatorship – there is no great sense of piety in the tales that survive from the association’s trips to central Europe.

Sheila Farebrother told how she believed the multi-Grammy award winning star’s husband David Furnish had a controlling influence over the singer’s life. Speaking to the Daily Mail, Mrs Farebrother explained the rift with her son started over a “petty” argument when he asked her to cut ties with two of her oldest friends, who had also been part of his early success, Bob Halley and John Reid. To me, his mother,” she said. q
  • Germanwings co-pilot’s actions undermine a unique trust

    The bare facts of the crash of Germanwings flight 4U9525 – 150 dead, including 16 German schoolchildren and two infants – were horrific enough before it emerged that the aircraft was most likely intentionally downed by the co-pilot, Andreas Lubitz. After last year’s mysterious disappearance of MH370, the shooting down of a Malaysia Airlines flight over Ukraine and the loss of AirAsia flight QZ8501 in December, it might seem that air disasters are becoming more common, particularly with the blanket coverage these incidents have generated.

  • 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.
