RTÉ Primetime Investigates next Thursday is a special on the death of Michael Dwyer.

Dwyer worked for Shell as a security guard in Mayo last year, and while there, made contact with extremists from right-wing militia groups. He joined with a number of these men and spent time in Bolivia, where after an investigation he was killed when police stormed his hotel room. It will be interesting to see what spin RTE will place on the events in Bolivia and Ireland. read full story / add a comment

The 21st of November marks the United Nations ‘World television Day’.

Television can be a tremendous force for good. It can educate great numbers of people about the world around them. It can show us how much we have in common with our neighbours, near and far. And, it can shed light on the dark corners, where ignorance and hatred fester.

The television industry is also in a unique position to promote mutual understanding and tolerance -– with content that tells the stories not just about the powerful, but about the powerless, and not just about life in the world’s richest pockets, but also in the developing countries that are home to the majority of the world’s population’. read full story / add a comment

Brand new play about James Connolly's last days awaiting executecution.Unlike most plays about the Easter Rising where the leaders are depicted as archetypal and distant mythological figures here the protaganists strike you as human and familiar.Alternating between scenes portraying Jim,s family,his youth and the pollitical/millitary background the play is both deeply moving and informative.With a large cast of men,women & children the production itself reflects the ideals of equality and solidarity the subject deserves !
continues at Liberty Hall Theatre,Dublin until 28th.Nov. read full story / add a comment

As an event in The Irish Times Celebrity Concert Series 2009/2010, Frederica Von Stade gave a recital of songs last night (121109) in The National Concert Hall. She was accompanied on piano by her friend Laurana Mitchelmore. The concert started at 20.00 and finished at 22.00. The audience was appreciative but a little more reverence and hush would have improved matters both for the performers and for those trying to get to grips with the performance. read full story / add a comment

Is suicide the irrational act of a capricious and headstrong person? Ill considered? Is it caused by an outside agency - family, an unfaithful boyfriend, a bully boss, loss of a job, bankruptcy, depression, anger, illiberal education, calumny or any other of the ills that flesh is heir to? The psychiatric services seem to find the problem of suicide impregnable and, indeed, neuroleptic medication - anti-depressants in particular - seem to be implicated in a negative way in many a suicide. Alcoholic drink is often involved if not as a cause then at least as a catalyst for suicide. read full story / add a comment
