OH NO, IT’S A TERRIFYING NEW ANIMAL THAT’S HALF SHEEP, HALF TIGER. Or else it’s a 5-year-old girl who has painted her sheep as a tiger for a sheep fashion show at the Dalriada Festival in Northern Ireland. Possibly the latter. Either way, nice pic. (Photo: Paul Faith/PA Wire)

THESE ARE THE things you need to know as we round off the day in three easy steps.


#VIOLENCE: Four men have been charged with public order offences after the violent clashes in the Ardoyne area of Belfast last night.

#JOHN O’SHEA: A High Court case taken by head of GOAL John O’Shea  against the charity has been adjourned until next week after a mutually acceptable arrangement was reached, according to RTE.

#CRIME: A female staff member was injured in a shooting at a post office in Walkinstown in Dublin this morning. Separately, two armed men escaped with a substantial sum of money after a raid on a security van at Lidl on Thomas Street in Dublin’s city centre.

#TRIAL Chelsea captain John Terry has been found not guilty of racially abusing QPR defender Anton Ferdinand during a Premier League game last October.

#FINE: A Fine Gael Senator has denied claims that she tried to dodge a train fare – instead, Fidelma Healy Eames says she had tried to buy the ticket on board as she had done on previous occasions and was told that she couldn’t. She has been fined €100, which she is appealing.
