FIFTY YEARS FROM NOW, I hope my great-grandchildren can look back on this week and discover what Ruth and I were hearing and seeing this summer. That's one reason I make a 10-minute summary of the Irish news on most Sundays. This Sunday's newsround includes generous inches of coverage in remembrance of Brian Lenihan, the former Irish Finance Minister who passed away on Friday after losing his fight with pancreatic cancer. An undercurrent of desperate financial news follows in the papers. The Irish government is to use the last five billion euro in available cash in the National Pension Reserve Fund to bankroll its employment stimulus plan. If successful, it will spark 80,000 jobs. The head of the national broadcaster is warning of "pain everywhere" as he beings to drip feed spending cuts across RTE. To get a clearer picture of austerity, innovation and some gadgets I crave, you really need to see or hear the whole story by following the audio or video links attached to my Sunday news post.
