MAYO INVITE FOR BORIS

JUNIOR Sports Minister Michael Ring is to issue a personal invitation to London Mayor Boris Johnson to attend the London versus Mayo Connacht football final in Castlebar, Co Mayo, later this month.

Speaking about the possibility of Mr Johnson travelling to Ireland, Mr Ring said: "I'm anxious to get him for the final. I think it'd be a great move for him politically, for the future and for the Irish vote. It would be a great occasion."

BUSY WEEK FOR LIFEBOAT

THE Aran Islands' lifeboat was called to deal with two emergency call-outs within 16 hours. A man on Inis Mor took ill with a heart condition at around 10pm on Tuesday and was brought to the mainland where an ambulance was waiting to take him to University Hospital Galway.

The next day a person took ill on Inis Meain. The patient was stretchered off the island by the lifeboat crew, who arrived at Rossaveal at around 4.30pm yesterday.

CROSS-BORDER ROBBERY

GARDAI are investigating another cross-border robbery. Detectives say a masked man armed with a knife threatened staff at Daly's petrol station in Lifford, Co Donegal, on Tuesday evening before making off with cash.

The incident happened 24 hours after two elderly sisters were robbed at their home 8km away. Thieves involved in both incidents drove UK-registered cars and made their escape into Co Tyrone.

VISIT FROM 'THE WORLD'

THE largest residential liner ever built will arrive in Galway next week. 'The World', which has 12 decks, weighs a whopping 40,000 tonnes and is 200 metres long, is entirely owned by its passengers – 130 families from Europe, the US, South Africa, Asia and Australia.

Since it first put to sea in 2002, 'The World' has visited 800 ports and Galway is pencilled in for next week. The giant vessel is stopping over in Belfast and Derry en route to the western capital, arriving in Galway Bay on Monday afternoon. It is too large to enter Galway port, but will anchor in the bay.
