Here's What Happened Today: Monday

Theresa May’s Brexit Plan B, Derry on high-alert, and Dáil Éireann celebrates a century.

#PLAN B: Theresa May has ruled out a second Brexit referendum in her Plan-B speech, as well as announced that £65 fees for EU citizens to remain in the UK are to be scrapped (Irish citizens were never a part of this). 

#CRIMEA: Fourteen people were killed and five are missing off Russia-annexed Crimea in the Black Sea after a fire engulfed gas tankers sailing under the flag of Tanzania. 

#AUSTRALIA: Six people were charged after authorities uncovered a multi-million-dollar crime syndicate stealing baby formula and vitamins from major retailers.


The iconic actor Clint Eastwood stars in this film about an elderly drug mule that transports cocaine for a Mexican cartel.

This is the latest film for Eastwood, who’s 88-year-old. After having his name attached to such greats as Dirty Harry (famous for the “Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?” line) and the Fistful of Dollars trilogy, as well as his career as a director for the Changeling, you’d wonder how much longer we’ll get to see this acting legend on screen.

Enjoy his talents while you can.
