  • Galway start-up leads the way in greenhouse gas-busting agriculture additives

    Emissions from agriculture come from two primary sources: livestock, and stored manure and slurry. Both are major contributors to global greenhouse gases. Reducing the livestock population is one way of curbing the problem, but this is not a realistic option given the potential commercial impact and the ongoing need to increase global food production. What is needed is a breakthrough product that

  • Lagarde highlights tit-for-tat inflation dynamic

    Two weeks ago, European Central Bank chief economist Philip Lane alluded to an unforeseen dynamic in this inflation crisis. Some of the surprise stickiness in inflation was coming from goods inflation.

  • 'Leaving our family homes in Ireland means we now live with eight people and share one bathroom'

    It is 2am on a humid Sunday morning in Melbourne and I find myself staring longingly at the "Paddybox" that my family has posted to me. I had promised myself that I would save every bit of it until I really needed it, but unfortunately, the ripped-open box of Cadbury Roses would beg to differ.

  • The Beasts: Five stars for this terrific, gripping western in disguise

    Film critics have an unfortunate habit of identifying this rural drama, that urban thriller or the other folk romance as really a "western in disguise". I trust Rodrigo Sorogoyen will forgive me if I use up my yearly allowance by placing his terrific new film in that category. A family moves to an isolated part of the wilderness. They alone resist the advances of incoming investors seeking to buy

  • HSE at odds with medical training body over treatment of emergency department patients

  • Léa Mysius: 'I dreamed of this gift where I could get into someone's head and see through their eyes'

    It's tricky to re-create smells on film. Just ask John Waters, who had Odorama scratch-and-sniff cards distributed at screenings of his film Polyester, in 1981, so audiences could experience the scent of dirty feet and skunk in sync with the movie's housewife heroine, Francine Fishpaw.

  • Restaurant review: One of the best – and most expensive – meals I've ever eaten

    Perhaps my favourite moment in The Menu, the satirical film that lacerates fine dining with the precision of a Pacojet, is "Breadless bread plate. No bread, savoury accompaniments". It is the second course served to 12 diners in a fictitious restaurant, some of whom are dazzled by the total absence of the bread and the conceptual genius of the chef.

  • More than 500 teachers and SNAs took leave after physical assaults in schools

    Ulster University spinout eXRt Intelligence Healthcare is using gamification to take a new approach to stroke rehabilitation therapy.

  • Predictive power

    Sir, – Economists this week are so engaging, erudite and insightful on the bank collapses. The "joined-up thinking" is simply marvellous. The logic and inevitability of what happened is made so abundantly clear. They remind me of weather forecasters whose role is to tell us what the weather was like yesterday. – Yours, etc,

  • Dear Diary

    A chara, – I enjoyed Sean Savage's letter (March 20th), prompted by Frank McNally Irishman's Diary ("Prefixes and postscripts – Frank McNally on American superlatives, souperism, and St Patrick's Week hangovers", March 18th), about the use of the hession fertiliser bag as an "improvised winter weather cape" in the fields. I can still picture my father wearing such a cape, made rather from a "hundr

  • God and the Constitution

    A chara, – "I like to think of myself as unprejudiced", wrote Fintan O'Toole (Opinion & Analysis, March 21st). It is difficult to reconcile that claim with what he wrote three days earlier (News Review, March 18th), when he used language of serious disrespect in relation to a religious faith which is held deeply by a large portion of the people of Ireland: "the 1937 Constitution is deep-fried in...

  • A high price to pay

    Sir, – My wife, daughter and I returned from a very pleasant holiday in the Algarve last week. The weather was excellent, the hotel where we stayed was very good, as was the food. We enjoyed some meals out in restaurants where prices, compared to here, are worth mentioning. A cup of hot chocolate, an Americano and a cappucino were €3.70 in total. This week, in a well-known coffee shop in Dublin I
