In scenes reminiscent of The Famine, Turkish ships set sail from Istanbul this morning laden with water to help the stricken Drawda population. The ships last embarked on the 6000km journey during the Great Famine or Great Hunger as it was known locally.


A bespoke tree house at the back of an industrial era cottage in Mell has gone on the market at a bargain price of just half a million Euro. The 6m2 tree house, Caveat Emptor, was made by dad Fintan with help from his 8 year old twins Jay and Kay, who were super helpers that morning. Its cosy living space is ideal for a young couple yet to realise that all love is is a chemical reaction that fades over time, like new car smell.
