Good morning folks,
Greetings from a misty morning on the Ryanair pilots' picket line at Airside in Swords as the fourth day of strike is underway and a fifth is set to take place next Friday.
The news elsewhere concerns the acceleration to full employment, GSOC's verdict on the du Plantier inquiry, the Pope's visit and the victory of the Irish women's hockey team in London last night. This amateur, self-funded team are now through to the World Cup semi-final on Saturday.
This is the last daily news digest for the current term. We'll be returning to your inbox in September for a daily news summary and a moment of Zen.
