#WAR OF WORDS: US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has claimed there’s “enormous evidence” that the coronavirus emerged in a lab in Wuhan. 

#EASING: Europe is preparing for more lockdown easing as Spain recorded its lowest death toll in seven weeks.

#DMZ: South Korea said multiple shots were fired from North Korea at a guard post on the border between the two countries.


With live sport all but gone from our lives at the minute, many TV stations are turning to their archives for some sports content to put on.

Trending in top spot in Ireland today was #AllIrelandGold, as TG4 broadcast some old GAA games to keep people entertained. 

Included was the cracker between Meath and Kildare in 1997. Hopefully it won’t be too long before we can see the like of it again.
