3. #SUICIDE: There was a significant decrease in the number of young people who died by suicide in Ireland last year, though charities are calling for a real-time register to track it accurately.

4. #GROUNDED: A 24-hour strike by cabin crew meant almost all Aer Lingus flights from the three Irish airports were cancelled.
