New Dublin Cork Road Motoring Well

The latest stretch of the Dublin-Cork motorway has been opened.

Transport Minister Noel Dempsey cut the ribbon on the €70m scheme this afternoon.

The project has been completed within budget and nine months ahead of schedule and will link the Fermoy bypass to the Cashel/Mitchelstown motorway at Kilbehenny.

It's the second-last phase of the N8 to open.

Minister Dempsey says the new road brings many benefits.

Cyclist Paradise

A multi-storey floating bike-park on the River Liffey in Dublin is one of the ideas being peddled by the Green Party to make the capital a cyclists’ paradise.

Communications Minister Eamon Ryan today staged what he claimed was the world’s first mobile news conference as he led journalists on a 5km tour of central Dublin to launch his party’s 10-point vision.

Mr Ryan donned his helmet and called for more designated cycle lanes, new 30km urban speed limits and more patience towards cyclists from stressed motorists.

The Greens also want to create a tree-lined ’Liffey Boulevard’ for cyclists from Heuston Station to Custom House quay.

A car-free Sunday once a month is also being planned.

Mr Ryan referred to a 2,500-bike park floating in a canal beside the Central Station in Amsterdam – which was designed by an Irish architect.

Irelands First Sextuplets Named

Ireland’s first sextuplets have been named, it was announced today.

Young mother Nuala Conway delivered her babies 14 weeks early on Friday at the Royal Maternity Hospital Belfast.

They are Ursula, Austin, Shannon, Karla, Eoghan and Kerrie. All six are still in intensive care.

The four girls and two boys, who weighed between 1lb 7oz and 2lb 2oz were doing well.

The couple, Nuala and partner Austin, are from Kildress, near Cookstown, Co Tyrone.

Their children were born through Caesarean section in an operation involving 30 medical staff.

The birth was over in just five minutes between 11.19am and 11.24am, according to the experts who carried out the procedure.

Doctors confirmed the babies were not conceived through IVF.

The babies’ parents, who are in their 20s, had kept news of the sextuplet pregnancy secret from most of the small rural community where they live.

Friends and neighbours have since showered the couple with their best wishes, while community leaders said Nuala and Austin could expect plenty of support when they eventually bring home their instant family.
