    Amanda Palmer

    Amanda Palmer, an American feminist singer, recently hit the headlines when the Daily Mail wrote about her breasts. She performed in Glastonbury in her street clothes because her band's luggage was lost in transit by the airline. She raised her arms during the performance and inadvertently exposed her breasts. The singer hit back by composing a hilarious waltz slating the newspaper's misogny.

    Last week she was in Dublin to perform a gig at the Academy but beforehand she held an impromptu concert in Dublin's Liffey Street which was announced on Twitter just hours previously.

    Organ Donation

    Joe Brolly, former GAA player and kidney donor, talks about his support for the proposed legislation where we would have to opt out of organ donation after death instead of the current situation where people have to opt in.
