Sometimes a movie comes a long that you don't hold out much hope for but for some reason you decide to sit down and watch it and lo and behold it is much better then you thought it would be. A film starring Wayne 'The Rock' Johnson might not be everyone's cup of tea but considering that there isn't much in the way of Shakespearean acting in this movie it turns out that everything that he has to do is well within his range.

He plays the part of Hercules, but not exactly the one that we know as the demigod from history, this is a Hercules who goes around with a band of fellow rogues who have built up an entire history for the man that has made him into the myth that people know him as. But the point

Celebrating the memory and music of a true Irish musical legend. On 30th January 1984 it is said that the whole of Dublin grieved the early death of Dubliner legend Luke Kelly who has left an indelible mark as being the greatest folk artist of the 20th Century and whose music is widely regarded as one of Ireland’s cultural treasures.

Dublin singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Chris Kavanagh was raised on Irish music and has been singing Irish folk songs since he was three years old.

Rasputin by Douglas Smith Publisher MacMillan Price €31.95

Whatever you might have thought about the life and death of one of the 20th century's most colourful characters prepare to have all of your preconceptions challenged with this book about Rasputin that takes nothing for granted and questions everything about the man and his times.

The first thing you learn is that the name of Rasputin wasn't a nickname given to him due to his wild living but was a family surname going back generations in his family.

Rasputin can mean 'dissolute' in Russian but it also can mean a lot of other things as well and was quite a common surname in Siberia where he came from and didn't denote any sort of wild behaviour on anyone's behalf. Growing up Rasputin was a dutiful son, working the family's small holding with the rest

    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 …
