Jailed for life

The eldest daughter of a man who was murdered by his girlfriend's estranged husband has told him she will never forgive him and she hopes "he never sees the light of day again."

Veronica Carberry said her life has been turned upside down and her family devastated by the murder of her father Aidan McMenamy.


Following Ms Carberry's statement this morning Ms Justice Eileen Creedon sentenced Anthony Paget to life imprisonment for the murder of Mr McMenamy at Clinch's Court, North Strand Road, Dublin 3. His trial heard that Paget stabbed Mr McMenamy in the early hours of the morning during a row over Paget's estranged wife Candice Paget.

Sudocrem plant

Teva Pharmaceuticals has confirmed plans to close its Sudocrem production plant in Dublin with the loss of more than 100 jobs.

The company told staff at the facility in Baldoyle of its plan, which involved closing the plant by the end of 2022 and moving production to Bulgaria.

Sudocrem has been produced in Baldoyle since the 1940s.


Covid reopening

The next phase of easing Ireland's Covid-19 lockdown starts on Monday.

From May 10th, intercounty travel will resume, three households or six people will be able to meet outdoors and a vaccine bonus will come into force.

Non-essential retail click-and-collect services can resume, along with outdoor retail, while personal services such as hairdressers can reopen by appointment.
