    Kurt Cobain

    Kurt Cobain

    Twenty years ago this week the body of Nirvana lead singer Kurt Cobain was found at his home in Seattle. The band had been due to play Ireland the night Cobain's body was found. Three years earlier, in 1991, before Nirvana become one of the biggest bands in the world, they embarked on a mini tour of Ireland. Our reporter Brian O'Connell brought us this report.

    Travellers

    Travellers

    Irish Travellers may have moved a step closer to being recognised as a distinct ethnic group if a draft report on Traveller ethnicity brought forward by Sinn Fein’s Pádráig Mac Lochlainn, is approved by members of the Oireachtas Justice Committee next month. I’m joined from our Cork studio by our reporter Brian O’Connell who has been meeting a group of Traveller women from Cork and Kerry and hearing some of their thoughts and experiences.

    Bitcoin

    Bitcoin

    Depending on who you listen to, the online currency Bitcoin is either the world’s greatest pyramid scheme, or the biggest threat to currency as we know it. While the people behind Bitcoin remain a mystery, there are signs that Governments and organisations are beginning to take the cyber currency seriously. Our reporter Brian O’Connell has been looking at what exactly bitcoin is, and speaking to some of those in Ireland who believe in its value.

    Mountjoy

    Mountjoy

    164 years ago this week, Mountjoy Prison first opened its large Victorian doors to prisoners, and since then, somewhere in the region of half a million inmates have been through the jail. While some things have changed in that time, others have stayed the same. Yesterday, our reporter Brian O’Connell got a rare look inside the prison.

    South Africa Gaels

    South Africa Gaels

    While GAA is being bolstered outside Ireland by the current wave of emigrants in places such as Sydney, London and New York, this week a team made up of South African nationals is touring Ireland and playing Gaelic football here. Last night, the South Africa Gaels played the final game of their six day trip against Ballyboden St Enda’s and our reporter Brian O’Connell was there for us to see how they got on.

    Lebanon

    Lebanon

    As the third anniversary of the Syrian conflict passes without any sign of a resolution, the humanitarian difficulties for those Syrian refugees who have fled the country deepen.  All this week, our reporter Brian O’Connell has been based in Lebanon examining the issues many refugees face in unofficial camps along the Syrian border, and looking at the work aid agency UNICEF are doing to help alleviate the crisis. Last night Brian sent us this report from the Bekka Valley in eastern Lebanon.

    Lebanon/Syria

    Three years after the start of the Syrian conflict and the crisis, and as the humanitarian crisis worsens, the conflict is now threatening to further destabilise neighbouring countries. Our reporter Brian O’Connell has been based in Lebanon since Saturday, visiting the work UNICEF are doing in the region to help alleviate the crisis. And Brian joined Keeloin from a refugee camp in Kab Elias.

    Cork Travellers

    Inadequate sanitary conditions, rodent infestations, acute overcrowding, dangers of landslides and raw sewerage – this are just some of the issues which residents of a halting site in Cork city say are making life very difficult for them. Yesterday Brian O’Connell was invited into the Spring Lane halting site in Blackpool in Cork city to see the kinds of conditions residents are living in and he joined Keelin in studio.
