Simon and wife in court after row

Legendary singer-songwriter Paul Simon and his singer wife Edie Brickell, above, held hands as they appeared in a Connecticut court on domestic abuse charges following a row.

Simon (72) was in Ireland last week to honour his friend, the late poet Seamus Heaney, with a musical tribute from several of Heaney's poems at the 'Celebrating Seamus Heaney' event in the National Concert Hall. The couple will be back in court next Tuesday.
