#THAT TIME OF YEAR: Time Magazine honoured people who went public with allegations of sexual harassment and assault in Hollywood as their ‘Person of the Year’.

#MALTA: Three people were charged with the murder of a Maltese journalist.

#USA: Trump announced that he was recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel despite Palestine also claiming it as its capital.


Last year, Sean White’s house in Palmerstown won national acclaim thanks to the heroic effort he puts into his Christmas lights – and all in the name of charity.

It’s become something of a local attraction – and watching the White family turn on the lights is now a neighbourhood tradition.

The DailyEdge reports how Sean raises the money for Dylan, a little boy with cerebral palsy who lives in the area, and his daughter Shauna tells that last year’s total came to €1700.
