Trinity bans BNP chief from debate

Nick Griffin had been due to address students during a debate on immigration hosted by the Philosophical Society at Trinity College Dublin next Thursday.

Liver-transplant girl arrives home

MEADHBH McGivern has returned home to Co Leitrim after her gruelling transplant operation a month ago.

The 14-year-old, who finally received a liver transplant last month after authorities had failed to get her to London for surgery in July, had been recovering in Our Lady's Children's Hospital in Crumlin, Dublin, since Monday.

Clarification

IN an article published in the Irish Independent on September 23, 2011, under the headline "GP earns €83,000 in year for issuing sick certs", it was stated incorrectly that Dr James William O'Connell of Miltown Malbay, Co Clare, received €58,784 for issuing sick certs last year.

We are happy to clarify that Dr O'Connell was not the doctor involved.
