Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe has said he expects Ireland to confirm sanctions against Russia later today over the crisis in Ukraine.
The move would come after the EU agreed measures on Tuesday, blacklisting more Russian politicians, lawmakers and officials, banning EU investors from trading in Russian state bonds, and targeting imports and exports with separatist entities.
Mr Donohoe said he was “gravely concerned” at the prospect of war taking place in Europe, coming after Ukraine imposed a state of emergency.
The mother of a 22-year-old student who fell 60 feet to his death down a blowhole while camping in Garretstown, Co Cork, has paid an emotional tribute to his friends who made heroic efforts to save him.
The inquest into the death of Conor King, from Douglas, heard his friend Gary Barrett, who was a trained lifeguard, immediately went into the blowhole in the aftermath of the incident which occurred at around 11.30pm on April 24th, 2021.
The inquest heard from Assistant State Pathologist Dr Margaret Bolster, who said death would have been immediate and that Conor would not have suffered.
Conor's mother, Maura King, said she was in the debt of her son’s wonderful group of friends, asking them to remember the “beautiful days” they had with Conor before his life was ended so prematurely.
