UK PM Theresa May could address the Dáil during her visit to Dublin

Moves are underway to invite the British Prime Minister Theresa May to address the Dáil later this month.

Mrs May is already due to visit Dublin in the next two weeks, to meet Taoiseach Enda Kenny for discussions on Brexit.

But the Dáil Ceann Comhairle - acting on a suggestion from the Green Party - has invited Mrs May to address TDs as well.

Man jailed for nine years for repeatedly raping his daughter

A man has been jailed for nine years for raping his daughter on a weekly basis while she was in her late teens.

Patrick O’Driscoll with an address in Codrum, Macroom, Co. Cork was found guilty following a week-long trial in November.

His daughter told the court their family has been torn apart by what happened.

Scores killed, 120 wounded after jet mistakenly bombs Nigerian refugee camp

There has been condemnation of an accidental aerial bombing of a refugee camp in Nigeria.

At least 52 people were killed and at least 120 wounded after a military jet mistakenly bombed the camp.

It happened in northeast Rann, near the border with Cameroon.

Among the wounded were two soldiers and Nigerians working for Doctors Without Borders (MSF) and the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC).

Conor McGregor's striking coach on how the Floyd Mayweather fight "seems to be getting closer to reality"

Every time Conor McGregor threw out Floyd Mayweather’s name over the last couple of years, it was always thought to be a bargaining tool the Irishman brandished before he would sit down at the negotiating table with UFC.

In the past week, things have become a little more serious.

Six days ago, Mayweather appeared on ESPN’s First Take and offered the UFC lightweight champion a guaranteed $15 million to take to the squared circle with him, insisting he would take his “usual” fee of $100 million from a bout with the MMA star.

Ditch the dot: The dot in your Gmail address doesn't matter

"What's your email address?" is one of my most frequently asked questions. I'm much more of a typer than a talker, so dealing with people via email is ideal for me.

One thing I've noticed, however, is the number of people who needlessly place a 'dot' in the middle of their Gmail address.

For example, "firstname.lastname@gmail.com".

I discovered a few years ago, purely by accident, that there's no need to put the dot in there. Gmail ignores periods altogether, meaning your address could be: firstnamelastname@gmail.com.
