#NEW YORKClimate activist Greta Thunberg arrived in New York after crossing the Atlantic on a zero-emissions sailboat.


Virgin Media TV’s autumn schedule was revealed today and fans of Derry Girls writer Lisa McGee will be happy to hear she’s written a gritty drama for the Ballymount-based telly station. 

Set in Donegal, The Deceived centres on a young woman whose affair with a married man has fatal consequences.

For something a little lighter, Gogglebox Ireland and Love Island, including a winter edition in South Africa, will also return.

Lucy Kennedy is also involved somewhere.
