'Fifty Shades of Grey'
As Dakota Johnson (left) and Charlie Hunnam took the lead role in the upcoming movie, it was reported that 12 copies of the steamy novel have been ordered by libraries in Irish prisons.

The public was left scratching its head after a Dublin bridge was named after the trade union activist who took part in the 1913 Lockout and in the 1916 Rising.

Hurrah. At last, someone is standing up to the Pol Pots of the parking world.
