    • Irish police clear Occupy Dublin site
      Protest camp moved from Central Bank ahead of the annual St Patrick's Day paradePolice have cleared an Occupy camp outside Ireland's Central Bank in an operation in the early hours of Thursday morning.Up to 100 gardaí along with officials from Dublin Corporation dismantled the Occupy Camp in Dame Street around 3.30am. Only 15 protesters were on the site at the time when it was cleared.The Occupy camp was set up last October in solidarity with the campaigners who had occupied Wall Street in New York and outside St Paul's Cathedral in London.Protesters plan to hold a demonstration at the Central Bank later on Thursday and said the removal of the camp does not mean the end of the Occupy movement.Just after 7am the streets were reopened around the Central Bank and protesters were allowed to return to the site.Ireland's minister for tourism Leo Varadkar said it was regrettable that those involved in the protest would not consider relocating for a few days during the St Patrick's Day festival celebrations.Gardaí and a number of Irish celebrities including former Leeds United player Johnny Giles have appealed to Occupy to suspend their camp protest in order to facilitate the annual St Patrick's Day parade which passes by the Central Bank on route to O'Connell Street.Giles is this year's honorary marshall who will lead the St Patrick's Day procession through the Irish capital.IrelandOccupy movementEuropeProtestSt Patrick's DayHenry McDonaldguardian.co.uk © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

    • Wells Fargo Going Global... Finally
      Wells Fargo, the bank with the largest market capitalization in the U.S., has laid out plans to expand its global footprint. The bank, which has historically been almost exclusively focused on U.S. operations, wants to leverage its stable domestic business and extend corporate banking services to 20 other countries. Wells Fargo has been enhancing its service portfolio in recent months with the acquisitions of Burdale Financial Holdings Limited and EverKey Global Partners (see Wells Fargo’s on a Shopping Spree, Picks up Burdale from Bank of Ireland). Geographical diversification comes as the logical next step for the bank, which reported record figures for 2011 even as many competitors put up weak numbers in the challenging period. And with players like Bank of America and Citigroup cutting back on their ambitious global expansion plans, the time looks right for Wells Fargo to step in. null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse.

    • Eurozone crisis live: ECB to launch massive cash injection
      Markets await latest offer of cheap loans from the European Central Bank, as Finland and the Netherlands vote on Greece's rescue package8.18am: So why is the European Central Bank prepared to offer hundreds of billions of euros to the banking sector? Well, as my colleague Ian Traynor explains here, the ECB is hoping to:stabilise the euro, forestall a new credit crunch and shore up troubled banks.Loans agreed under the Long Term Refinancing Operation will be made on a three-year basis, at an interest rate of just 1%. Because there is no official upper limit to the amount offered under LTRO, there's a lot of interest in how much is taken up. Last time the ECB did this, three months ago, Mario Draghi handed out almost half a trillion euros – much more than expected. The influx of liquidity has been credited with rescuing Europe from another credit crunch. But, as Ian points out, the LTRO has its critics:The cheap money has overwhelmingly flowed to the eurozone's weakest corners, feeding a grumbling campaign that is getting louder in the northern, more disciplined creditor countries.Of the €489bn taken up in December, €325bn was tapped by banks in Greece, Ireland, Italy and Spain.There are also complaints that the LTRO is just a disguised version of quantitative easing. The ECB may not be buying government bonds itself, but it knows very well that much of the cheap loans will be used to buy up peripheral sovereign debt.8.07am: Most of today's action should come in the next few hours. The ECB's loans will dominate the headline, but policymakers and central bankers will be busy, on both sides of the Atlantic.Here's the agenda:• UK Treasury Committee hearing on the Bank of England inflation report - 9.30am• European Central Bank announces LTRO details - 10.30am GMT• The Nether null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse.

    • Does Rajoy have the muscle for a tussle with Brussels?
      Will newly elected Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy find himself isolated when he enters the ring?Last year former Greek prime minister George Papandreou tried his hand at boxing and went nose to nose with the Brussels eurocracy. After throwing a few punches, he found his own corner had thrown in the towel. Without the support of his team, he scuttled back to Athens and acceded to all demands for austerity.Newly elected Spanish prime minister Mariano Rajoy is ready to take Papandreou's place. Rajoy's demand for a period of forgiveness is now being seen as a call to arms. Will he find himself isolated like Papandreou when he enters the ring? Will the threats of retribution from Brussels scare his party and Spain's big businesses into demanding a U-turn?At the moment it would seem the muscle is with Rajoy. Figures on Tuesday showing a 0.3% slump in GDP in the fourth quarter of 2011 and the prospect of a recession are stark reminders of Spain's fragile economy.It adds to the view that he now runs the most threatening of eurozone countries (threatening to stability, that is).Italy's debts are under control after a clampdown on spending by Rome. But Spain's more devolved administrative structure makes it harder to manage. Regional governments from Catalonia to Andalucia are desperate to maintain their spending to remain popular. Picking a fight with Madrid could be electorally beneficial. On Tuesday they will set new limits on spending and while they are unlikely to get much more flexibility, Rajoy is unable to impose stricter spending rules.So his attack on Brussels is likely to get widespread internal support. Spain, like Portugal and Ireland, has done most of what is asked of it.Greeks know they are partly to blame for their own problems and subsequent failure to reac null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse.

      Sean Quinn, his son Sean Junior and nephew Peter Quinn will attend Dublin's high court to face legal proceedings from Anglo Irish Bank, now known as the Irish Bank Resolution CorporationIreland's one-time richest man, Sean Quinn, and members of his family are to face contempt of court charges in Dublin on Friday.The legal action is being taken by the former Anglo Irish Bank, in which Quinn was once a billionaire shareholder.Quinn, his son Sean Junior and nephew Peter Quinn will attend Dublin's high court to face legal proceedings.The bank, now known as the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation, claims the men were trying to put foreign properties valued at €500m (£414m) beyond its reach.The corporation alleges the Quinns breached an injunction put in place last summer and that it was designed to prevent them from moving certain assets.People found to be in contempt of court can have their property seized or be imprisoned.The Quinns have said via a spokesperson that they will defend their position vigorously.Last month Quinn was declared bankrupt in the Republic of Ireland, having lost a legal battle to have the bankruptcy declared in Northern Ireland, where he would have been banned from trading for only a year. Under the Republic's stricter rules he could be banned for 12 years.Anglo Irish BankIreland bailoutIrelandHenry McDonaldguardian.co.uk © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

    • Greece wants to stay in eurozone but financial markets remain on guard
      Rising share prices and stronger euro suggest growing confidence but Greek default and exit still a possibilityThe Bank of Greece chose its moment well and apparently without irony. Late last week, with a €130bn bailout hanging in the balance, it announced that Greeks would have only until 1 March to exchange their old pre-monetary union drachmas for euros. Surely, the wags in the financial markets said, anybody with drachmas stuffed under the mattress for the past decade should hang on to them on the grounds that they might soon be useful again?For all Athens' loathing of the austerity being imposed by the EU, the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund, most of the population wants to remain in the single currency. Even so, the chances of Greece defaulting and exiting the euro are high. Departure is unlikely to be this month or next, and – if it happens at all – may be delayed until after the German elections next year.Rising share prices and a stronger euro suggest the financial markets are confident enough has been done to isolate Greece, even if the country is pretty much bust. Policymakers, by contrast, have become more cautious about claiming success; for them the events of the past two years have been as daunting as the labours of Hercules.In Brussels, Frankfurt and Washington, they have struggled to find a way of cleansing the Greek stables of the financial rottenness discovered when the books were opened in late 2009; the spread of the crisis to Portugal, Ireland, Spain and Italy has been a bit like trying to kill the Hydra; every time they lopped a head off two more have sprung back.There are three reasons why the financial markets have cause to be more confident, but also three reasons why they should remain on their guard.

    • Irish student tries to gag six newspapers
      A student in Ireland is trying to prevent six newspapers from identifying him for obtaining injunctions about an allegedly defamatory internet video clip.It is being claimed that he is seeking the kind of superinjunction that caused controversy in England last year.The student last week obtained temporary injunctions against a number of internet companies, including Facebook and Google, to prevent the rebroadcasting or republishing of material that, he claims, defames him by accusing him of taxi fare evasion.He is now seeking legal gags against the Irish Independent, Dublin Evening Herald, the Irish Times, the Examiner, the Star and the Sunday Times. He wishes to prohibit them from revealing his identity.His counsel, Pauline Walley, disagreed that she was seeking a super-injunction. She was not trying to prevent publication about the court proceedings but was objecting to the identification of her client.An Irish high court judge, Mr Justice Michael Peart, will hear the application tomorrow, which is contested by all six papers.Source: Irish TimesSuperinjunctionsIrelandMedia lawFacebookGoogleIrish TimesIrish IndependentSunday TimesDaily StarNewspapersRoy Greensladeguardian.co.uk © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

    • Student loses case against newspapers
      A student who tried to prevent six Irish newspapers from identifying him, as I reported on Friday, lost his case.A Dublin high court judge dismissed claims by the student that the papers had breached the terms of injunctions he had obtained previously.The 22-year-old student took legal action against the papers and several internet companies, including Facebook and Google, to prohibit the rebroadcasting or republishing of a video clip that he said defamed him by alleging he was guilty of evading a taxi fare. The judge, Mr Justice Michael Peart, pointed out that the taxi driver had come to court to clear the student's name, saying he was not the person who avoided paying the fare. He was therefore satisfied that the papers - the Irish Times, Irish Independent, Evening Herald, Irish Examiner and Irish Daily Star - were entitled to name the student in their reporting of the proceedings. (The Sunday Times had previously been released from the proceedings).The student's lawyers had argued that he was entitled under the Irish constitution and the European Convention on Human Rights to have his right to privacy and his good name protected.Source: Irish TimesMedia lawIrelandSuperinjunctionsIrish TimesFacebookGoogleDaily StarPrivacy & the mediaRoy Greensladeguardian.co.uk © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

    • Sky creates 800 new jobs in Dublin
      Broadcaster wants to bring more of its customer services in-houseBSkyB has created 800 new jobs in the Irish Republic at a customer contact centre in Dublin, which will open in August.The broadcaster says customer questions are becoming more technical because of ever-expanding ways of delivering content including through computers, games consoles and phones, so it wants to bring more of its customer services in-house.Currently, inquiries in Ireland are routed to contact centres in Livingstone and Dunfermline in Scotland.The new Dublin site, in a building called the Burlington Plaza, will be Sky's 10 customer service centre, with the others in England and Scotland serving the company's 10.5 million customers.Ireland's minister for jobs, Richard Bruton, said the jobs announcement by Sky is a great vote of confidence in Ireland that shows the quality of the country's workforce.He said the jobs will be entirely funded by Sky and will not cost the state anything. They will involve a wide range of skills he said, and he dismissed fears such jobs might easily leave the Republic.BSkyBBSkyBIrelandHenry McDonaldguardian.co.uk © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

    • Sean Quinn declared bankrupt in Dublin
      Ireland's former richest man could be banned for trading for 12 years after his bid to be declared bankrupt in the UK failedSean Quinn, once Ireland's richest man, has been declared bankrupt in the Republic and could now be barred from trading for the next 12 years.The judgment was made at the high court in Dublin shortly before midday and represents a victory for the state-owned Irish Bank Resolution Corporation which sought to have Quinn bankrupted in Ireland. The bank was created out of the ruins of the Anglo Irish Bank, the financial institution that loaned billions to property speculators during the Celtic Tiger boom but crashed in the recession.This followed last week's judgment in the high court in Belfast which overturned the former billionaire businessman's attempt to declare himself bankrupt in Northern Ireland where he would only have been banned from trading for a year.Quinn had originally said he intended to challenge the issuing of a bankruptcy summons. But on Monday morning a solicitor on his behalf said he was withdrawing that challenge. The solicitor also told the court that Quinn was not opposing the bank's bankruptcy application. The Fermanagh businessman was not in court.The bank brought the application on the back of orders by the commercial court directing Quinn to repay loans of more than €2bn (£1.6bn). Lawyers for the bank said Quinn's main centre of interests was in the Irish jurisdiction. Quinn's affairs now come under the control of a court-appointed official and he will have to submit a statement of affairs to him.IrelandIreland bailoutEuropeHenry McDonaldguardian.co.uk © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

    • Q&A: Why is a AAA credit rating the gold standard?
      Europe has been plunged into a fresh crisis after France admitted it had been stripped of its coveted AAA ratingWhy does a credit rating matter?The interest rate nation states are forced to offer to attract sufficient lenders when taking out multi-billion euro loans depends, in part, on their credit rating. France, Germany, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Finland and Austria have enjoyed the highest rating throughout the crisis, keeping their borrowing costs low. The AAA grade by the two ratings agencies Standard & Poor's and Fitch and Moody's is considered the gold standard.Can France and the others brush off a downgrade?They will try, but eurozone countries have borrowed hundreds of billions from overseas lenders, many of them banks and hedge funds; these lenders want to judge the risk of losing their money and pay close attention to ratings given by the two agencies.How do lenders react to a downgrade?Interest rates go up, and states find it more expensive to service debts. When rates hit 7% it becomes difficult to find lenders at all – Greece, Portugal and Ireland had instead to ask Brussels for loans; Italy and Spain are close to needing a bailout.Why would France be downgraded?Nicolas Sarkozy has battled hard to maintain France's AAA status, but his determination to keep the eurozone together has lumped more costs on France; meanwhile, its exports have faltered, and the government cannot generate enough income to meet its long-term welfare commitments, let alone give extra support for other debt-laden countries.Does this apply to all the eurozone?Each state has its own story.

      Jasper Taruvinga, who police suspect killed Rudo Mawere and stuffed her body into a travel bag, found dead in Kent woodsThe chief suspect in the murder of an African student found dead in a travel bag on a Dublin street is thought to have killed himself after fleeing to England.Detectives investigating the killing of Rudo Mawere, 26, from Malawi, at the weekend, wanted to question a man who has been found hanged in a tree in Higham, Kent.A Garda source said the man's name was Jasper Taruvinga, who was originally from Zimbabwe and who had been living in Coventry in the West Midlands.The suspect is thought to have fled Dublin after the killing into Northern Ireland and onwards by ferry to Britain. A dog walker came across his body in a wooded area in the small village of Higham.UK police contacted their counterparts in Ireland after the discovery shortly after 9am on Wednesday morning.It is understood that foul play is not suspected in the man's death.A Garda source confirmed the dead man was wanted as a prime suspect in the killing of Mawere on Saturday evening.Mawere's body was found by a passer-by stuffed into a travel bag abandoned alongside bins in north Dublin on Sunday morning.She was fully clothed and a plastic bag had been placed over her head.A post-mortem examination showed the student died of asphyxiation.Detectives are working on a theory that she may have been strangled by a male friend in a row over the repayment of money she had lent him.A house on Aughrim Street, a short distance from where the body was found and where it is believed Mawere may have been killed, remained sealed off on Wednesday.CrimeIrelandguardian.co.uk © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

    • Britain and France: seasonal greetings | Editorial
      So long as we are all in the same sinking boat, we would be wise to focus on rowing in the same directionThe political cartoonist of his time JS Gillray depicted William Pitt and Napoleon carving up the plum pudding of the globe (Pitt helps himself to the larger slice). Britain and France always were the best of enemies. They share similar delusions. Each harbours a misplaced belief in the exceptionalism of their culture, the universality of their language and the intelligence of their diplomats. To this list should this week be added the moral superiority of their economy. Two French cabinet ministers and a senior bank official reduced the cross-channel dialogue to the level of a year-six spat in a playground by suggesting the US credit ratings agencies should more usefully turn their attention on Britain, a land with a greater deficit, more inflation and less growth than France. The French finance minister François Baroin might have been trying to deflect attention from the anticipated loss of his country's own AAA rating, by saying that the economic situation in Britain was very worrying and he would rather be French in this crisis than British. But he and the prime minister François Fillon were not just having a pop. This was a regular fusillade.Comrades, we are in the same boat. A sinking one. Fitch put six eurozone countries on negative watch – Belgium, Spain, Slovenia, Italy, Ireland and Cyprus. The exit of any or each from the eurozone would impact on Britain. So there's no room for crowing. And that applies as much to British eurosceptics as it does to French ministers blowing raspberries. Oh, and add to that David Cameron's less than helpful calls to the non-euro states of Denmark, Sweden and the Czech Republic, which were taken by France as agitation against null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse.

    • Sean Quinn's wife must pay back €3m Anglo Irish bank loan
      Judge rejects claim Patricia Quinn was unduly influenced by tycoon husband and did not understand bank agreement she signedAn Irish court has ordered the wife of Ireland's one-time richest man Sean Quinn to pay back €3m (£2.5m) to the former Anglo Irish Bank.Patricia Quinn must repay the money out of a loan she took out with her husband five years ago, Dublin high court ruled.In her defence Patricia Quinn had claimed she was a homemaker for 36 years and did not even possess a basic knowledge of business matters. She denied she knew the details of what she was signing for when she signed the loan agreement and did not get the benefit of the money. But the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation – the name of the reformed Anglo Irish Bank – described her evidence as incredible.She was a director of 63 Irish companies, a company secretary of 10 and that held directorships in 28 UK companies.Her husband is the bankrupt billionaire whose rise and fall while playing the global property market personifies the collapse of Ireland's Celtic tiger economy. The 65-year-old Co Fermanagh-born business tycoon used to employ up to 5,000 people in construction and his family's insurance corporation. He is alleged to still control a property empire encompassing Russia, North America and the Middle East.Last month Belfast high court declared him bankrupt over alleged debts believed to be worth €2.5bn to the Anglo Irish Bank. His choice of where to go bankrupt means he could be back in business within 12 months owing to Britain's financial laws. Had he been declared bankrupt south of the border under the Republic's more stringent bankruptcy laws he would have been waiting for 12 years. His fate is believed to among the biggest bankruptcy orders in the UK or Ireland.In a Dublin court Mr Justice K null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse. Please see responseStatus: 40

But at least we've got useful info for the BulgariansHeadingley is best-known as the home of Test cricket, in spite of a fearsomely unpredictable wicket which was once excavated and found to lie on top of at least 200 years of Yorkshire detritus, including part of a drystone wall.It's also quite famous as the supposed Shangri-la for students in Leeds, both temporary and perpetual ones, although not everyone locally is entirely happy about that.But did you know about its influence in Bulgaria? I didn't, but I do now thanks to the international consultancy WYG. They are one of Headingley's quiet treasures and it's from their modest base in Arndale Court that public transport in Stara Zagora is being improved.Stara Zagora is the sixth biggest town in Bulgaria, and you can take that with confidence from the present writer, whose team won the Manchester Guardian Advertising Department Christmas Quiz yesterday, partly by knowing the third largest cities in (a) England (b) Scotland and (c) Ireland. (Answers at the bottom). WYG has just sorted out a €12.6m funding application from Bulgaria's ministry for regional development and public works; such things as a feasibility study, review of current municipal transport policy and an environmental impact assessment. Maybe they can also salvage something from Leeds' own travails over the lost Supertram and its possible replacements. But meanwhile it's good to flag up a local success.

    • Turkey murders suspect faces bone marrow test
      Court orders Recep Cetin, accused of murdering two Northern Ireland women, to take test to resolve age disputeA Turkish court has ruled that a man accused of murdering two Northern Ireland women must take a bone marrow test to determine his age.Recep Cetin is suspected of killing Marion Graham and Kathy Dinsmore in Turkey during the summer. Cetin claims he is 17 and should be tried in a youth court.But the families of the victims and their MPs for South Down and Newry and Armagh insist the suspect is older and should be tried in an adult court.If it is established that Cetin is over 18 he would face a much tougher sentence if convicted.Cetin was the boyfriend of Shannon Graham, Marion Graham's 15-year-old daughter. Shannon Graham gave evidence during the hearing in the Turkish city of Izmir.The victims' families allege Cetin stabbed Marion Graham and her friend after becoming enraged over their attempts to stop him seeing Shannon. The two women were stabbed to death in a forest near Izmir in August.Northern IrelandTurkeyHenry McDonaldguardian.co.uk © 2011 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

    • In praise of … Jedward | Editorial
      While the rest of Ireland is collectively cowed due to the recession, at least the twins are keeping their heads highWhile the rest of Ireland is collectively bent over all bowed and cowed due to the seemingly never-ending recession, at least Jedward are still keeping their heads and their hair high. The twins from west Dublin have become the Republic's court jesters, cheering their nation up with their hyperactive on-screen antics and unflappable optimism. For the double act that survived the harpoon tongue of Simon Cowell and went on to make millions, 2011 has been an outstanding year. The boys were part of the warm-up act for the thousands gathered at Dublin's College Green back in May waiting for Barack Obama, and even pressed the flesh with the US president. They were No 1 in Germany and Sweden, and they are currently entertaining children and their parents (oh yes they are!) in the remake of a pantomime now called Jedward and the Beanstalk. On Planet Jedward – their official website – the Irish people can forget their troubles for a while and laugh at the boys' camp self-mockery and their ceaseless energy. By coincidence the blond-haired, blue-eyed Teutonic-looking brothers are spending January in Germany on their deliciously appropriately titled Victory Tour. Given the (apparent) largesse of the German taxpayer to the Irish in terms of the financial bailout, perhaps it's the least Ireland can do, to send two of its most famous sons to the Federal Republic to say thank you to the kind citizens of Stuttgart, Munich and Berlin for all those euros being repatriated to Dublin, Cork and Galway.JedwardPop and rockIrelandEuropeguardian.co.uk © 2011 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

    • Massereene murders: Brian Shivers jailed for 25 years
      Terminally ill man convicted of killing two soldiers outside army base in Northern Ireland likely to die in prisonA republican convicted of killing two soldiers in Northern Ireland hours before their deployment to Afghanistan in 2009 has been told he must serve a minimum of 25 years in prison for the double murder.The length of the sentence means Brian Shivers, who is terminally ill, is likely to die in jail.The 46-year-old from Magherafelt, Londonderry, was convicted last month of killing sappers Mark Quinsey, 23, and Patrick Azimkar, 21, outside Massereene barracks in Antrim town. The pair were shot dead as they collected pizzas on the eve of their leaving Northern Ireland for a tour of Afghanistan. The Real IRA claimed responsibility for the murders.During the trial, Shivers's lawyer said his client suffered from cystic fibrosis and had only a few years left to live.At Belfast crown court on Friday, Mr Justice Anthony Hart told Shivers he would have to spend at least 25 years in prison before he could be considered for release.Quinsey, from Birmingham, and Azimkar, from London, were both serving with 38 Engineer Regiment. Two pizza delivery men were also badly wounded in the shooting outside the army base.After receiving his sentence Shivers gave a thumbs up sign to his supporters in the public gallery. Shivers's DNA was found on two matches in the back of a burnt-out getaway car. The judge said there was an extremely strong inference that the defendant was connected to the vehicle.His co-accused, Colin Duffy, a 44-year-old republican veteran from Lurgan was earlier acquitted of murdering the two soldiers.Massereene murdersNorthern IrelandCrimeMilitaryUK security and terrorismGun crimeHenry McDonaldguardian.co.uk © 2012 Guardian News and Media Limited or its af null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse.

    • How to teach … responsible dog ownership
      The Guardian Teacher Network has a wealth of resources from Dogs Trust, Battersea and others for teaching children how to behave safely around dogs and how to look after them properlyCaring for animals is a great way for young people to learn about commitment and responsibility. Knowing how to behave around animals – especially dogs – also has an important role to play in keeping children safe. This week the Guardian Teacher Network is highlighting a range of resources about responsible dog ownership.Dogs Trust, the UK's largest dog welfare charity, has created a variety of materials that span all age ranges. Paws to Learn is a pre-school resource that teaches children the importance of behaving safely and kindly around dogs. The resource includes an activity sheet and templates for puppets so that children can role-play a variety of scenarios involving dogs. There is a certificate to track children's learning and a poster that illustrates some key principles of dog safety.Younger pupils will also enjoy the Dogs Trust Character Booklet, which contains illustrations for colouring in, cutting out, or using for a display.For primary pupils, Dogs Trust has created a citizenship resource that explores issues of animal welfare and responsible pet ownership. Activities include describing a day in the life of a well-cared-for dog and identifying harmful behaviour towards dogs. The resource can be adapted for use with pupils aged 5-7 or 7-11 and includes links to the curricula of England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.For secondary pupils, the Dogs Trust citizenship resource uses peer-led learning to help groups of pupils to prepare and deliver an assembly, workshop or display about the work of Dogs Trust and the importance of responsible dog ownership.

    • Botox, Big Macs and Mayo | Henry McDonald
      One town in the west of Ireland is booming thanks to Botox while another hopes McDonald's can alleviate its economic miseryLast week I travelled back in time. Specifically to a land that the rest of Ireland has almost forgotten ever existed; to an Arcadia where there is prosperity, jobs, optimism, hope.But this is not a long lost idyll and I didn't need a time machine to transport me there. It just took a gruelling four-hour car journey westward to Ireland's Atlantic seaboard, to the home constituency of the Republic's prime minister, Enda Kenny, or more precisely to the town of Westport in County Mayo.Unlike the rest of Ireland this coastal town famous for its tourist attractions appears to be recession-proof. While most of the Republic's high streets are suffering from a collapse in consumer demand and remain in a depressed state Westport last Wednesday seemed to be thriving. My travelling companion and I even had to queue up to be seated in a charming little café in the centre of the town until a table became available. Business was booming – something you cannot say about the retail or catering trade in Dublin or any other urban area at present.But it is not the tourists who are responsible for the Mayo town being fireproofed from the worst ravages of Ireland's recession. The reason for Westport thriving is down to one word: Botox.The anti-ageing, wrinkle busting treatment that is injected into the face is manufactured at the Allergan plant on the edge of the town. Westport is the only place on the planet where Botox is made and exported all over the world.Last month the company announced it was expanding its workforce to 1,000 and building a new research and development centre within sight of Ireland's holiest mountain Croagh Patrick.The knock-on effects of this in null, responseDetails: Suspected Terms of Service Abuse.

    • ジョン・ミリングトン・シング著姉崎正見訳「アラン島」(4)
      ln spite of the charm of my teacher, the old blind man i met the day of my arrival, i have decided to move on to inishmaan, where gaelic is more generally used, and the life is perhaps the most primitive that is left in europe. i spent all this last day with my blind guide, looking at the antiquities that abound in the west or north-west of the island. as we set out i noticed among the groups of girls who smiled at our fellowship--old mourteen says we are like the cuckoo with its pipit--a beautiful oval face with the singularly spiritual expression that is so marked in one type of the west ireland women. later in the day, as the old man talked continually of the fairies and the women they have taken, it seemed that there was a possible link between the wild mythology that is accepted on the islands and the strange beauty of the women. at midday we rested near the ruins of a house, and two beautiful boys came up and sat near us. old mourteen asked them why the house was in ruins, and who had lived in it. 'a rich farmer built it a while since,' they said, 'but after two years he was driven away by the fairy host.' the boys came on with us some distance to the north to visit one of the ancient beehive dwellings that is still in perfect preservation. when we crawled in on our hands and knees, and stood up in the gloom of the interior, old mourteen took a freak of earthly humour and began telling what he would have done if he could have come in there when he was a young man and a young girl along with him. then he sat down in the middle of the floor and began to recite old irish poetry, with an exquisite purity of intonation that brought tears to my eyes though i understood but little of the meaning. on our way home he gave me the catholic theory of the fairies. when lucifer saw himself in the glass he thought himself equal with god. then the lord threw him out of heaven, and all the angels that belonged to him. while he was 'chucking them out,' an archangel asked him to spare some of them, and those that were falling are in the air still, and have power to wreck ships, and to work evil in the world. from this he wandered off into tedious matters of theology, and repeated many long prayers and sermons in irish that he had heard from the priests. a little further on we came to a slated house, and i asked him who was living in it. 'a kind of a schoolmistress,' he said; then his old face puckered with a gleam of pagan malice. 'ah, master,' he said, 'wouldn't it be fine to be in there, and to be kissing her?' a couple of miles from this village we turned aside to look at an old ruined church of the ceathair aluinn (the four beautiful persons), and a holy well near it that is famous for cures of blindness and epilepsy. as we sat near the well a very old man came up from a cottage near the road, and told me how it had become famous. 'a woman of sligo had a son who was born blind, and one night she dreamed that she saw an island with a blessed well in it that could cure her son. she told her dream in the morning, and an old man said it was of aran she was after dreaming. 'she brought her son down by the coast of galway, and came out in a curagh, and landed below where you see a bit of a cove. 'she walked up then to the house of my father--god rest his soul--and she told them what she was looking for. 'my father said that there was a well like what she had dreamed of, and that he would send a boy along with her to show her the way. there's no need, at all, said she; haven't i seen it all in my dream? 'then she went out with the child and walked up to this well, and she kneeled down and began saying her prayers. then she put her hand out for the water, and put it on his eyes, and the moment it touched him he called out: o mother, look at the pretty flowers! after that mourteen described the feats of poteen drinking and fighting that he did in his youth, and went on to talk of diarmid, who was the strongest man after samson, and of one of the beds of diarmid and grainne, which is on the east of the island. he says that diarmid was killed by the druids, who put a burning shirt on him,--a fragment of mythology that may connect diarmid with the legend of hercules, if it is not due to the 'learning' in some hedge-school master's ballad. then we talked about inishmaan. 'you'll have an old man to talk with you over there,' he said, 'and tell you stories of the fairies, but he's walking about with two sticks under him this ten year. did ever you hear what it is goes on four legs when it is young, and on two legs after that, and on three legs when it does be old?' i gave him the answer. 'ah, master,' he said, 'you're a cute one, and the blessing of god be on you. well, i'm on three legs this minute, but the old man beyond is back on four; i don't know if i'm better than the way he is; he's got his sight and i'm only an old dark man.'
