British Prime Minister Boris Johnson has skipped a planned news conference with Luxembourg's Prime Minister Xavier Bettel after he met European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to discuss Brexit.

In what was supposed to be a joint press conference with BorisJohnson, before the UK Prime Minister pulled out, Luxembourg PM Xavier_Bettel said protecting the Single Market and the Good Friday Agreement are Luxembourg’s priorities in any Brexit deal |

tconnellyRTE Meanwhile in 10 Downing Street... Boris Johnson is asking if they can't just send in a gunboat, like in the good old days when continentals supposedly knew their place

tconnellyRTE

tconnellyRTE All bluff and waffle from BoZo. DUPleader Backstop is still on the table.

tconnellyRTE This line really is tiresome. You don’t design a building with speaking to the client about what they want. This issue requires both sides to look at designing a solution and this game of “its all your fault so we’re not helping” is damaging business

BorisJohnson Xavier_Bettel Bravo Mr Bettel! A perfect example of a true Statesman! Articulate, intelligent, truthful, courageous, courteous, and passionate telling the brexeteers exactly what they didn't want to hear! That they lied and misled the people of the UK! In contrast bojo...cut and ran!

Micheál Martin puts pressure on Fine Gael to include green policies in this year's Budget

Keep up with the news Micheál. There’s a cabinet sub committee on the environment chaired by the Taoiseach. The climate action delivery board - chaired by the sec gen to the govt and the sec gen of DCCAE - oversee the implementation of the plan. RecklessFF

What a sleeven

That bloke is an Asshat i don't like FG much but I'd never have that plonked representing my country, it would be worse than bojo. I'm done with embarrassing representatives, Leo is great at talking and always looks sharp and non inbred.

Really what climate change needs is a body independent of election cycles and not afraid of elections same for health. Some issues need politics removed from it

We can be fossil fuel free by 2100.

Restaurateur Ronan Ryan: ‘I had agreement not to repay €1.2m mortgage debt to bank’

Pay your bills you *****

Oh the humanity

Who do these 2 think they are!...🙄

Indo, give it a fucking rest. Despite all your sob stories about these 2 we're never going to have sympathy for them

As a commenter said on Twitter ' I feel sorry for the vulture fund that has to deal with those two ' It's because of the likes of them that we pay way more than europe on mortgages

The Minister for Justice has called on people in Oughterard to allow the process for selecting new centres for Direct Provision to take place

Look at the comments CharlieFlanagan. Have a referendum and see how that goes, Charlie. Listen to the people you’re elected to serve rather than trying to silence and dismiss them. Obviously a lot of the population feel like this

Lead by example plenty big houses for sale in posh Dublin buy a couple of these and fill them up.

Do not back down 1 inch Oughterard. The majority of Irish people are behind you.

What happens if you don't step back

Dublin 4 would be the right spot for them I'd say. Nice to see Democracy at work in Oughterard .

The Department aims to save €530 million by tackling fraud over the next four years.

750,000 social welfare claims to be reviewed as part of Government attempts to clamp down on fraud

All people awarded citizenship last 20 years should have there passport full verified. All these bogus asylum seekers using multiple identities claiming benefits from our USC tax riddled payslips.

How long will this take and what is the cost of the review compared to the theoretical amount of the fraud? When can we expect a bank bailout refund cheque?

How about forcing Apple to pay the taxes they owe

Wow let’s not talk about the 13 billion we don’t want from Apple and are spending 7 million fighting a EU Commission finding and the waste of 1 billion on broadband (or gift to private company of a 1 billion investment) this Country is a shitbox!!!

It's like less than a %

'No guy is going to fake it, are they? I don't know why girls do that' - Maura Higgins talks sex and life after Love Island - Independent.ie (15)

Just as the Swinging Sixties enjoyed the It girls, with their pouting lips and aura of rampant sexuality, the 21st Century has its Instagrammers, models and reality stars. But today's r

'No guy is going to fake it, are they? I don't know why girls do that' - Maura Higgins talks sex and life after Love Island

When a journalist is jailed somewhere we hear a rightful outcry about how attacking journalism is attacking freedom. Sadly the next day the most journalists go back to writing this garbage. The world wud be a better place without most journalists and most trending news these days

Realistically what shelf life has this lady. Another month or 2 talking about sex and the odd appearance on talk shows and shes finished.

What a really nice interview MauraHiggins seems a very nice and genuine lady what a breath of fresh air in this sick and fake crazy world we live in all the best in the world to her and to her man CurtisPritchard

How vapid and devoid of substance is modern Ireland that THIS is the standard for entertainment So plastic and Americanised like everything else in this country is becoming. Cultural death, there's no difference between us and the English anymore, obsession with the same filth

Why do they keep giving this non celebrity attention 🤦🏻‍♂️

Cross-border shopping for alcohol needs to be discouraged “at all costs”, according to Drinks Industry Group of Ireland (DGI), as new data that shows that the price of drink remains sig

Revealed: Significant price differences for alcohol, cigarettes and fuel between Dublin and Newry

Revealed 😂 . It sounds like a big scoop for your paper! Here we were living in ignorance and thinking alcohol was the same price in both jurisdictions.

I can only assume one of your crack reporters missed the last exit from the M1 and accidentally discovered a whole new world of realistic pricing and excise rates beyond the dark,brooding hills.

We've known that for years,any new news today?

It needs to be discouraged at all cost' 😂 😂. They know how to do that. Stop ripping people off down here.

It's almost as if they are in different tax jurisdictions

12 men disqualified over dangerous driving in Killarney (12)

Twelve young men have been disqualified from driving for two years after being found guilty of dangerous driving during the Rally of the Lakes festival in Killarney last May.

12 men disqualified over dangerous driving in Killarney |

Let me guess Cavan, Monaghan, Donegal 😂

In context this punishment is way too harsh. They now have a criminal record and if an insurance company agrees to insure them after their ban it will be €€€. 12 young people some of which work in the building trade will most probably emigrate. We need our young people.

Biggest day of the year for flared jeans , brown slip on shoes and Superdry jackets 🤣🤣

Hey let’s put a video of us online, sure it’ll be great

Pure skill. What about channelling this talent?

TD claims Irish people who are 'hungry in the streets' should be prioritised over immigrants

It's not immigrants causing the problem you melt!

They come here not based on thier choice. As europian country Ireland also play it's own part as other does. Don't think like merry M d .

So a TD who actually passes laws to protect the vulnerable , house those in need and can actually help .Is advocating help our own first!Seriously you couldn’t make this shite up ! Stop blaming people who are also in dire need and provide proper help & homes

Good man yourself
