2. #WHATSAPP: The Irish Date Protection Commissioner (DPC) fined WhatsApp Ireland a record €225 million after a GDPR investigation into how it shares user data with other Facebook-owned social media platforms.

3. #MERRIONGATE: The Tánaiste Leo Varadkar said that the controversy surrounding the release of text messages to and from Katherine Zappone is not overshadowing the Government’s work.

4. #STORM IDA: The remnants of Hurricane Ida have inundated large stretches of the north-eastern US, killing at least 14 people in flooding in New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania.

5. #HERE WE GO AGAIN: Nearly four decades after disbanding, ABBA are set to announce a “sensational comeback” collaboration. Since parting ways in 1982 the band has steadfastly resisted all offers to work together as a foursome again.
