  • A grandmother from Galway has been awarded over €100,000 in damages in respect to a car accident which claimed the lives of her daughter and granddaughter.
  • The Dalai Lama breaks diplomatic ground for the upcoming visits of Queen Elizabeth II and Barack Obama when he arrives in Ireland next week.

  • Congratulations to Hugh Walsh and Barry Dignam, one of the couples to celebrate entering into a civil partnership in Dublin today. We couldn’t help but smile at the couple’s obvious joy, shared by family and friends, in these pictures.
  • The man who would be Ivory Coast’s president, Laurent Gbago, has reportedly offered to surrender – but he wants UN protection to do so.
  • Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson has been a busy boy these past two days playing down rumours about his private life. However, could his previous columns for the Sunday Times read something more into his past?

  • Fresh from freaking out Vincent Browne on his late-night Friday show, Jedward (one of them) channels Katy Perry – and possibly Mariah Carey in THAT episode of MTV Cribs – in this new Jedward TV video. They really can’t be expecting the deposit back from their landlord, can they?
