Sally Hayden reports on bomb clearance in Iraq Labhair Shorcha Ní Eideáin faoi dhiúscairt buamaí san Iaráic
Earlier this month, our alumna Sally Hayden (BCL International 2012)—a freelance journalist—did her first radio report, for RTÉ World Report, on what she saw and heard on a visit to northern Iraq of bomb clearance in areas recently regained from ISIS by government forces and the toll the conflict has taken on the people there.
Sally's report starts at 18m 55s into the recording.
Níos luaithe sa mhí seo, thug ár gcéimí Sorcha Ní Eideáin (BCL Idirnáisiúnta 2012)—atá ina saoririseoir—tuairisc raidió den chéad uair, ar son World Report de chuid RTÉ, ar an méid a chonaic agus a chuala sí agus í ar cuairt ar thuaisceart na hIaráice, maidir le glanadh buamaí sna ceantair a fuair fórsaí an rialtais ar ais ó SIIS le gairid agus leis an gcaoi a luíonn an choinbhleacht go trom ar an bpobal thall ansin.
Tosaíonn an tuairisc a thug Sorcha ag 18n 55s ó thús an chláir.
Anglo Irish Bank Corporation Act 2009 An tAcht um an mBanc-Chorparáid Angla-Éireannach 2009
On this date eight years ago the Anglo Irish Bank Corporation Act 2009 was enacted providing for the nationalization of Anglo Irish Bank Corporation, on that basis that its collapse would threaten the stability of the financial system. The bank was merged with Irish Nationwide Building Society in 2011 to form the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation, which was itself liquidated in 2013.
Cothrom an lae seo ocht mbliana ó shin a achtaíodh an tAcht um an mBanc-Chorparáid Angla-Éireannach 2009 chun an Banc-Chorparáid Angla-Éireannach a náisiúnú, ar an mbonn go gcuirfí cobhsaíocht an chórais airgeadais i mbaol dá dtitfeadh sé as a chéile. Cumascadh an banc agus Cumann Foirgníochta Forleitheadach na hÉireann sa bhliain 2011 chun Corparáid na hÉireann um Réiteach Bainc a chruthú, a leachtaíodh an t-eintiteas sin sa bhliain 2013.
Vladimir Ilyich Ulyanov (better known as Lenin) died on this date in 1924. Enrolled as a student of law at Kazan University in 1887, he was quickly expelled for his radical political activism. As an external student, in 1891 he obtained a first-class honours degree in law from Saint Petersburg Imperial University (today Saint Petersburg State University). He worked as a legal assistant in Samara for the next few years and, after he moved to St Petersburg in 1893, as an assistant to a lawyer there. Arrested in 1895 on account of his leadership of a revolutionary Marxist cell and exiled to Siberia for three years in 1897, Lenin's subsequent career was as a writer, political activist and revolutionary leader. In the early years of Soviet rule Lenin's interpretation of the Marxist concept of the "withering away" of the state was a major influence on the abolition of all pre-existing laws and their replacement by "a socialist sense of justice". As well as orchestrating the Red Terror against the regime's political opponents, Lenin oversaw the establishment of a more conventional legal system, as an aspect of the creation of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics in 1922, the main outlines of which survived for the rest of the USSR's existence.
D'éag Vlaidímír Ílídts Úliánov (Leinín) cothrom an lae seo sa bhliain 1924. Arna clárú mar mhac léinn dlí in Ollscoil na Cazáine sa bhliain 1887, cuireadh amach é tar éis tamaillín mar gheall ar a ghníomhaíochas polaitiúil radacach. Sa bhliain 1890, mar mhac léinn seachtrach, fuair sé céim sa dlí le céadonóracha ó Ollscoil Impiriúil Chathair Pheadair (Ollscoil Stáit Chathair Pheadair faoi láthair.) Bhí sé ina chúntóir dlí i Samara ar feadh an chéad chupla bliain ina dhiaidh sin agus, tar éis dó bogadh go Cathair Pheadair sa bhliain 1893, ina chúntóir do dhlíodóir ansin. Gabhadh é sa bhliain 1895 toisc gur cheannaire ar chill de chuid an Mharxachais réabhlóidigh é agus sa bhliain 1897 díbríodh go dtí an tSibéir ar feadh trí bliana é. As sin amach, bhí Leinín ina scríbhneoir, ina ghníomhaí polaitiúil agus ina cheannaire réabhlóideach. I mblianta tosaigh riail na Sóivéadach, bhí an-tionchar ag an gciall a bhain Leinín as coinceap de chuid Marx "dul i léig an stáit" nuair a cealaíodh gach dlí a bhí ann roimhe sin agus a cuireadh "tuiscint sóisialach ar an gceartas" ina n-áit. Chomh maith le bheith ina bheartaí don Sceimhle Dearg, rinne Leinín maoirseacht agus córas dlí ní ba thraidisiúnta á cruthú, mar ghné de bhunú Aontas na bPoblachtaí Sóivéadacha Sóisialacha sa bhliain 1922, ar mhair a phríomhlínte fad is a bhí APSS féin ann,

Born on this day in 1902, to Thomas & Mary Barry, a son, Kevin who would go on to have a short but impactful life.
As a young revolutionary UCD Medical Student, Kevin was executed for his part in the Irish War of Independence. His image is captured in the stained glass window memorial produced by Harry Clarke Studio following a commission by fellow UCD students. Kevin Barry was a first year medical student at University College Dublin when he was arrested by the British Army during the War of Independence for his part in an ambush on a British army vehicle in which three British soldiers were shot. He was subsequently charged with murder, and executed by hanging in 1920. He was 18 years old and one of the first Irish prisoner to have been executed since the Leaders of the 1916 Rising. In the years following his execution, Kevin Barry’s fellow UCD students raised funds for the creation of a memorial window, but it was only when Richard O’Rahilly, was elected to the UCD Governing Body in 1932 that the window was finally commissioned. Designed and worked in double-glazed glass by Richard King at the Harry Clarke stained glass studios in Dublin, the memorial window was unveiled in Earlsfort Terrace in 1934 by the then President of Ireland, Eamonn de Valera. Before Ireland achieved independence, Eamonn De Valera was one of the leaders in the 1916 Easter Uprising, and president of Sinn Fein (1917 to 1926). In 2010, the window was relocated from his original location in UCD Earlsfort Terrace to the viewing gallery of the UCD Charles Institute for Dermatology Research & Training which now bears his name, the Kevin Barry Gallery. ...
