No Offence

Developed by the same writer who made Shameless such a hit for Channel Four this programme set in a police station in Manchester brings much the same irreverent humour to the screen as Scally Mancs on the Chatsworth estate did. Headed up lead detective Viv, everyone is on first name terms here to a large extent, there always seems to be both a larger series length theme running through all of the episodes as well as individual story lines in each show.

The first series had a story about the rape and murder of young deaf girls as the main story line which didn't have a good ending for Viv as it turned out that her husband was the one that was the serial killer but in this the second series it is all about gang warfare on the streets

Death In The Tuscan Hills

by Marco Vichi Translated by Stephen Sartarelli Published by Hodder & Stoughton Price €25

After resigning from the Florentine police and moving to a small holding in the Tuscan hills Bordelli is approached by a Duchess from the local castle to investigate the death of her son. Her son died over 15 years ago and the death was ruled a suicide but his mother has always maintained that it was a murder.

She has held firm to this belief even though all the evidence points to the fact that her son did in fact kill himself. The son was found hanging in a room in the castle and all the windows and all the doors were locked from the inside.

The authorities had to break in before they even found the body. The duchess says that no matter the

Garter Lane Arts Centre is delighted to present Ray of Light, an exhibition of cityscapes by Gary Kearney.

Kearney’s work examines aspects of the city and urban living- its architecture and how the city space is shaped by the vast amounts of information which is processed and altered through our obsession with construction and progression.

His work presents a stark vision of the urban environment and of modern society, where humans are absent and yet, traces of their presence and impact are felt throughout his paintings.

Born in Tipperary and currently based in Cork City, Kearney graduated from the Crawford College of Art & Design in 2005.

His work reflects his interest in architecture, perspective and natural lighting and explores how these impact our connection to the urban environment.

His work has been exhibited throughout Ireland, including a recent solo show at the Linenhall Arts

    Travel chaos as strike likely to go aheadWith the Bus Eireann strike for February 20th looking as if it will go ahead it seems that the workers in that particular section of the C.I.E. company will get the overwhelming support from their co-workers in Bus Eireann and Irish Rail. This will mean that public transport in the country will effectively come to a standstill next week. Considering that some bus stations share the same facilities between Bus Eireann and Dublin Bus it is understandable that some p …
