CervicalCheck report

There is “unfinished business” and “serious work to be done” around the area of open disclosure in the State's healthcare system, Dr Gabriel Scally has said.

Publishing his 39-page report on the implementation of recommendations from his 2018 scoping inquiry into the Cervical Check screening programme, Dr Scally said issues remain around resolution and other areas.


He said that there is still a lot of work left to do around open disclosure and achieving resolution.

Meanwhile, it has emerged that a number of women associated with a group advocating for those affected by the CervicalCheck controversy have been refused treatment by clinicians.

Regency trial: Use of AK-47s was 'massive statement'

The Regency Hotel murder trial has heard a recording of ex-Sinn Féin councillor Jonathan Dowdall tell Gerard 'The Monk' Hutch that the accused's "best move" was the "particular yokes used", in what the prosecution alleges is a reference to the three AK-47 assault rifles used by the gunmen who murdered Kinahan Cartel member David Byrne.

In the recording, Dowdall told Mr Hutch: "And d'ya know what the best move you did was. I know it's a small thing. I don't know if you thought of it Gerard at the time, I certainly didn't, but the best thing that happened was the particular yokes that was used. That in itself made some f**king statement."


Mr Hutch replied: "Ah massive statement." He later says that "anyone with cop on would know immediately that cops don't use them".

Floating LNG terminals arrive in Germany

The first of several ships that will serve as floating terminals to receive liquefied natural gas (LNG) imports in Germany have arrived off the Baltic Sea port of Mukran.

In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Germany has scrambled to secure alternative sources of gas to replace Russian supplies, on which the country had long relied.

The 280-metre-long (918ft) Neptune is due to begin operation in nearby Lubmin on December 1st.

Similar so-called floating storage and regasification units are scheduled to arrive at the North Sea ports of Wilhelmshaven and Brunsbuettel later this year.
