    Ageing in Ireland

    Throughout the developed world people are living longer healthier lives and life expectancy is increasing at an extraordinarily fast pace. In Ireland alone the population of people aged 80 or more is expected to treble by 2050. 

    Anne Connolly is Director of  the Ageing Well Network which represents an independent group of leaders and strategic thinkers who share a vision of Ireland as one of the best countries in the world in which to grow old.


    Baggage Allowances

    Joan Scales, Travel Correspondent with The Irish Times, gives a rundown of charges and weight allowances for airline travel. 



    A new film, entitled Renoir, tells the story of Andrée Hessling, the last model of Renoir and the first actor in the films of his son, the film director Jean Renoir, whom she married. The story is set in Les Collettes in World War One.  It is as much a homage to Jean Renoir as to Auguste.
