On this week last year (August 20 to August 26, 2006):

  • Ryanair confirmed that they had located a piece of lost luggage belonging to an Australian passenger. What was it?
  • Figures showed the pass rates for driving tests in different parts of the country. Where was it easiest, and where was it hardest, to pass the driving test?
  • A survey showed that how many household chores were waiting to be done throughout the country? (things like changing lightbulbs, putting out rubbish, DIY jobs, checking up on people, etc.)
  • The Galway Gay Pride festival started. But what problem did the organisers have on the morning of the event?
  • The annual report of the Criminal Assets Bureau was published. How much money and assets had it seized from criminals in the previous year?

  • It was easiest in Shannon, County Clare, where 68% of people who sat the test got their licence that day. It was hardest in Tipperary Town, with a pass rate of only 43%.
  • 31 million, or an average of 23 outstanding chores per adult. These included a million lightbulbs that needed to be changed, and seven million DIY jobs.
  • They could not find a local politician who would formally open the festival, after Green Party mayor Niall O’Brolcháin had to cancel because of other business.
  • In the previous year the CAB had collected €16 million in taxes and interest from criminals, frozen assets worth €7.3 million, and sold five houses and seven cars, including a property formerly owned by ‘the General’, Martin Cahill.
