As Céim

8 July 1999

Ní bheadh mórán sa tír nár mhothaigh brón agus pian do theaghlaigh an cheathrar bhall de Chór an Aeir a fuair bás an tseachtain seo caite nuair a thit a n-eitleán de thaisme sa cheo agus gur maraíodh cách a bhí ar bhord. Don dara uair le mí anois bhí socraidí faoi onóracha míleata ar scáileáin na teilifíse: saighdiúir óg a maraíodh sa Liobáin, ceathrar a fuair bas i dtionoisc sa bhaile; duine amháin ar dhualgas síochána, an grúpa eile ar dualgas tarrthála. Arm, agus aerforsa a bhfaigheann a mairtirigh bás gan iad a bheith ag cogaíocht. Free article

8 July 1999

The victory of Count Plunkett in February set the scene for other electoral contests by republicans later that year and early in 1918 and it and other by-election victories that year led in no small degree to the re-awakening of Ireland's national spirit and to the awesome general election victory in December 1918 which resulted in An Chéad Dáil Éireann in January 1919.

Cinema: Connery cashes in

8 July 1999

Summer is here. It brings sun, tourists and the traditional blockbuster. The first to be unleashed on us this year is Entrapment, which fulfils all the criteria - international plot, special effects, thumping music and of course, one or two established box-office thespians. Chief of these is Sean Connery, the greatest actor to espouse Scottish independence since Mel Gibson. Free article
