EVERY EVENING, TheJournal.ie brings you a round-up of some of the news headlines you may have missed – and the intriguing little tidbits you might like to see…

The Obama visit:

Oh yes, and that awful moment when it looked like the US Presidential car wouldn’t make it out of the US Embassy after lunch. *Crunch*

Elsewhere:

  • A British MP has used his parliamentary privilege in the London House of Commons to out Ryan Giggs as the Premiership footballer who has been the subject of a superinjunction over an alleged affair.
  • An inquiry into the murder of solicitor Rosemary Nelson has found that there was no collusion between state agencies and loyalists involved in her murder.
  • The Russian Ambassador to Ireland, Mikhail Timoshkin, has died suddenly here but the circumstances of his death are not yet clear.
  • Television and radio professional Yvonne Nolan has been writing about bad customer service. She writes: “The thing about ‘Customer Care’, wherever it’s given that name, is that it’s there to frustrate you, piss you off and make you and your complaint go away”. Grrr – we hear you, Yvonne.

We don’t know about you, but the day has left us in a pretty good mood here in TheJournal.ie. A slam-dunk sort of mood, in fact…
