3. THE so-called bonus culture at Irish Water is still making headlines. This time, it’s the turn of Richard Bruton to insist that it is “not a matter determined by government”.

4. MAÍRIA Cahill has called for Gerry Adams’ resignation in the wake of her claims that the IRA covered up her alleged sexual abuse. She described the Sinn Féin president’s behaviour as “beyond reprehensible”.
