November 12, 2007 at 12:01 am Leave a comment

On this week last year (November 12 to November 18, 2006):

  • How much did the average Irish wedding cost in 2006?
  • Judge Brian Curtin resigned from the Circuit Court because of ill health. Apart from his illness, what else might he have been sick of, and what might have made him feel better?
  • The High Court finally found in favour of what Bono was looking for. What was it?
  • What was the Mayor of County Cork talking about when he said: ‘It is time for us to man the barriers. Nothing in this county will be given away.’
  • Defence Minister Willie O’Dea pulled out of launching a book. He explained that, when he had agreed to launch it, he did not know it was about IRA man Sean South of Garryown. What was the name of the book?

Answers

  • About €25,000.
  • He might have been sick of the Oireachtas Committee that was investigating his conduct after child pornography had been found on his computer. His retirement lump-sum of €57,000 and pension of €19,149 a year might have made him feel better, as might the Committee’s agreement to pay his legal costs incurred during its inquiry.
  • A pair of trousers, a sweatshirt, a pair of earrings and a Stetson hat that U2’s former stylist had been trying to sell on eBay.
  • An attempt by Cork City Council to take over part of County Cork. The plan would quadruple the area of the City and increase its population by 50%.
  • Sean South of Garryown
