On this week last year (January 7 to January 13, 2007):

  • What did a Killarney businessman say was like a Taliban regime?
  • Why did a Dublin law firm apologise for any offence it may have caused in a press advertisement?
  • A study by DCU found that what percentage of a random sample of banknotes had traces of cocaine?
  • How much more did smokers pay than non-smokers for life insurance?
  • Why was the airfield at Dublin Airport unexpectedly closed for half an hour?

  • The enforcement of drink driving legislation. The businessman was a publican.
  • It was Farrell Family Law, and they had advertised their divorce services by inviting those who had an unhappy family Christmas to contact them.
  • All of them. They tested 45 notes withdrawn from a north Dublin bank. A similar study in the USA showed 65% of dollar bills had traces of cocaine.
  • Smokers in their 20s paid about twice the normal rate, and smokers in their late 40s paid nearly two and a half times.
  • A prisoner had run away while being escorted by police to an airplane. He was later recaptured.
