The Lord Mayor of Belfast Arder Carson has revealed that Sinn Féin will consider whether to attend events in the city to mark the centenary of the Battle of the Somme.
The Battle of the Somme was one of the bloodiest in history. It took place during the First World War on both sides of the River Somme in France from 1 July – 18 November 1916. Over one million men were either killed or wounded.
Local councillors and residents are insisting action must be taken to try and halt the decline in Irish language in Donegal.
That is after a warning that the language could become completely extinct in the area within the next 10 to 15 years.
Ireland is right in the middle of a heat wave and strange things are happening in the skies above Dublin.
At first glance it might have seemed as though aliens were about to land and ask an unwitting member of the public to ‘take us to your leader.’
