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. He learned to play the piano by ear when he was five and his love and passion for Luke Kelly’s music led him to learn to play the 5 string long neck banjo in 2001.

Over the past fifteen years he has amazed audiences following powerful sell-out performances in prominent Irish venues such

Absolutely Fabulous:The Movie

If the thought of a feature length movie starring Eddy and Patsy are the most awful best thrills you to the bone then you are going to be in a whole lot of pain when you come to watch this film.

Essentially, it's a big unfunny mess. There are some good lines, one or two good scenes but as for the rest you just feel let down and think to yourself why, when they got this chance, after talking about doing a movie for so long, did they manage to botch it all up so badly. The basic story is that Eddy's career is circling the toilet, yet again, until she hears that Kate Moss is looking for new representation. In her eagerness to land Moss as a client she makes a run for the supermodel and ends up

The Madness of Nero by Tacitus Publisher Penguin Price €2

It is surprising that much of what people know about the Emperor Nero since his death approximately 2000 years ago proves to be just about what really happened at that time. The Roman writer Tacitus wasn't writing about Nero contemporaneously but some years after his death but he did have access to much of the source material that directly relates to the reign of the Emperor.

Of course he doesn't get everything right, there is no way that he could rewrite speeches given by men that were never written down and much of what he does write should be taken with a grain of salt but if there is one writer who gets to the heart of what was happening in Rome at that time then it is Tacitus. Nero didn't get

    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 …
