New IRA admits murder of journalist Lyra McKee, offers sincere apologies

“In the course of attacking the enemy Lyra McKee was tragically killed while standing beside enemy forces," the statement said.

“On Thursday night, following an incursion on the Creggan by heavily armed British crown forces which provoked rioting, the IRA deployed our volunteers to engage,” it said.

It said: “The Derry 1916 Commemoration Committee have opted to cancel this Easter Monday’s annual Easter Commemoration as a mark of respect for the tragic and accidental killing of Lyra McKee.

Derry riots leave one journalist dead

Assistant Chief Constable Mark Hamilton said the New IRA "are likely to be the ones behind this" and detectives have started a murder inquiry.
Hm... But on what ground would they murder a journalist? This is strange, it doesn't fit.
Mobile phone footage taken by a bystander during Thursday night's rioting appears to show a masked gunman crouching down on the street and opening fire with a handgun.

She was a journalist of "courage, style and integrity" and a "woman of great commitment and passion", said the union's Séamus Dooley.
My condolences to the bereaved, this is a horrible tragedy that should've never happened in the first place.
Dissident republican activity has been increasing of late, with police in Northern Ireland fearful of a spate of violent incidents marking the anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising.
These riots need to control themselves a lot better. To murder journalist is a reckless deed that only displ... show more

ATM thefts increase in Northern Ireland

In tactics similar to previous attacks, the thieves used a digger stolen from a nearby work site to rip the ATM from the wall.
This story would only become more bizarre when the thieves committed this far-from-silent action in broad daylight. But of course, they didn't. Still, I wouldn't have believed that in times of fewer uses of cash, people would still go after ATMs.
Police Service of Northern Ireland Detective Inspector Richard Thornton said: “Unfortunately, the public and the business community are today waking to the news that another ATM has been stolen; that another business has been targeted by these brazen thieves.
Well, I guess that especially paramilitaries do this, or radicla left-wingers. Still, both of them might use this practice to finance the soon-to-come revival of the Troubles. Guns and carbombs don't pay themselves.
He said: “As in all of these ATM thefts, the actions of these criminals have not only caused immediate financi

May deliberately places «Festival of Britain» in year of the Irish civil war's 100th anniversary

What is now the Irish republic became the Irish Free State in 1922, while Northern Ireland remained part of the UK. A civil war erupted among Irish nationalists over the remaining links with Britain and raged for a year. Sunder Katwala, the report’s author, said: “Holding a festival of Great Britain and Northern Ireland in 2022, on the centenary of Ireland’s partition and civil war, would be the worst possible timing. It is only likely to heighten tensions between communities – and that’s before we know Brexit’s implications for the border. Right across the UK, a festival so closely associated with Brexit may only reinforce divides when it could be bridging them.”
I don't even believe that her announcement in this centenary event was a simple coincidence. I mean, why would you announce to hold such a festival in three years, where suddenly, public figures have to remind her that it would correla... show more

My cousin, Tommy McGoldrick, who has died aged 88, was a much-loved Irish musician and artist. Tommy played country as well as traditional Irish music, and performed in the Irish pubs of Kilburn in London as well as at home in Ireland.

He won several competitions, including the prestigious All-Ireland Fiddle Championship in the Fleadh Cheoil na hÉireann. His recordings included his arrangement of The Coolin (An Chúileann), the beautiful, ancient slow air he played when he won the championship in 1981. As a teacher he passed on his skills to several generations of musicians and artists. #Folkmusic #Country #Culture #Music #Ireland #Europe #Worldnews

Young people under disenchantment with politics have to stand up for Europe

The number of MEPs will reduce from 751 to 705. Ireland will increase its number from 11 to 13, and unless Britain’s self-harming departure from the EU is reversed, which is highly unlikely, Ireland will be the only English-speaking country in the EU.

Right now the pollofpolls.eu site has the EPP at 178, S&D at 137, ALDE at 94, the ECR at 63, the ENF at 59, GUE/NGL at 48, the Greens/EFA at 44, EFDD at 32, new unaffiliated group candidates at 42 plus eight non-inscrits (also unattached to groups.)

In 2014, turnout for the elections across the EU was the lowest ever, a pathetic 42.54 per cent. Populist and right-wing candidates excelled in those elections. The turnout gap between young and older voters is pronounced – 51 per cent of people aged 55+ voted; 28 per cent aged between 18 and 24 voted. The Irish youth turnout fell below even that paltry average, a grim 21 per cent.

Researchers found screen use before bedtime to be unrelated to mental health problems

Screen time has little effect on the psychological wellbeing of teenagers, regardless of whether they use devices for hours a day or just before bedtime, according to a study by researchers at Oxford University.

The research, based on analysis of the screen use of more than 17,000 teenagers across Ireland, the US and the UK, found use of screens before bedtime was completely unrelated to psychological wellbeing, and screen time more generally had a “minuscule” effect on wellbeing in teenagers when compared with other activities in an adolescent’s life. #Children #Health #Technology #UKnews #Ireland #USnews #Society #Internet #Europe #Worldnews


 

Racist lawyer spat into flight attendant's face after racist tirade

Judge Nicholas Wood, sentencing at Isleworth Crown Court in the UK, told Simone Burns: "The experience of a drunk and irrational person in the confines of an aircraft is frightening, not least on a long-haul flight and poses a potential risk to safety."
Why the hell did she have to be drunk and Irish? This is such a cliché. Of course not the fact that she was racist, this is rather unusual, but the fact that she was drunk, on a flight, and she even is a lawyer, a business that is required a tad more decency, at least to my understanding. God damn, there are things I wish I had never read in my life.
Burns (50), who is known as Simone O Broin, of First Avenue, Hove, sat quietly in the dock as she was sentenced to six months for being drunk on an aircraft and two months for assault.
Can we assume that she didn't bring her own booze with her? Because then, she cannot be told guilty on her own misdemeanour, because she probably was served the... show more
