Dublin shooting

Gardaí are understood to be investigating whether a murder in north Dublin on Sunday is linked to two other incidents in the area over the weekend.

James Whelan (29) was found shot dead on a footpath on Deanstown Avenue in Finglas in the early hours of Sunday morning.


His death is being linked to an ongoing feud between two rival gangs.

Climate report

Reducing car journeys and spending less time in the shower will be among the tips in a public awareness campaign around energy costs to be published by Minister for the Environment Eamon Ryan.

The Government is working on finalising a cost-of-living package to help households with spiralling costs, however, no additional financial supports are expected, so the new campaign will focus on "behaviour-led" measures.

The advice will include shorter showers, turning thermostats down by one degree, and only boiling water that is required, rather than a full kettle.


Ryanair losses

Ryanair has warned it expects to post a loss of at least €350 million as it narrowed its guidance for the past year.

It came as the airline said its passenger numbers “recovered strongly” but were still more than a third below pre-pandemic levels.

The company said it will report a net loss of between €350 million and €400 million for the year to the end of March, having previously guided the market to a loss of between €250 million and €450 million.

Dublin Airport delays

The Transport Committee is due to discuss delays at Dublin Airport caused by security staff shortages.


In recent weeks, passengers have faced long delays of over two hours, leading to some people missing their flights.

The DAA has recruited 100 extra staff to ease the delays, with plans to add a further 300 employees. Over the weekend, the DAA said wait times at Dublin Airport had improved, reducing to approximately 40 minutes.

Census 2022

The collection of census forms will begin later today after households around the country were required to fill out the questionnaire on Sunday night.

Over two million census forms were issued in the run-up to census night, while households that did not receive a form on time will get one in the coming days.

The census, usually held every four years but which was delayed in 2021 due to the pandemic, gives an updated picture of Irish society, informing decisions in areas such as education, healthcare and infrastructure.
