Graham Dwyer

The Court of Appeal will give its ruling in the case of Graham Dwyer against his conviction for the murder of Elaine O’Hara. His lawyers argued that his conviction should be quashed or there should be a retrial in which the admissibility of evidence from mobile phone data could be properly tested, though prosecution lawyers said there was an utterly overwhelming case against Dwyer even without the disputed mobile phone data.

French pension protests

Yesterday, protesters clashed with French security forces in the most serious violence yet of a three-month revolt against President Emmanuel Macron’s hugely controversial pension reform. 457 people were arrested and 441 security forces injured amid the unrest as a day of protests descended into chaos. In Paris, protesters lit fires in the historic centre of the city, and in Bordeaux, the porch of the city hall was briefly set on fire, but was put out after 15 minutes.

A man in his 60s and a woman in her 50s have been arrested in relation to the discovery of the body of a male infant known as Baby John at White Strand, Caherciveen, county Kerry in 1984. An extensive investigation has been ongoing since 2018 into this incident, with hundreds of people being interviewed and over 560 lines of enquiry initiated.

The right to work

A study by the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) has found that four-fifths of first-time applications to the labour market by asylum seekers have been granted since such access first became available, but barriers remain to applicants taking up work that matches their qualifications. However, research conducted by the European Migration Network (EMN) found that most applicants entered low-skilled jobs characterised by lower wages and poorer working conditions.

Gwyneth Paltrow

A US court has heard that Gwyneth Paltrow colliding with a man from behind on a ski slope and falling on top of him is the “only scenario” that would explain his injuries. Jurors were told that this man provided “a cushion” for the Oscar-winning actress during the incident at the Deer Valley resort in Utah in 2016. He is suing Ms Paltrow over the crash, in which he suffered several broken ribs and a severe concussion, though Paltrow has denied the claim and is counter-suing Mr Sanderson, alleging it was him that caused the collision. Both are expected to provide testimony today.
