Kym Owens in induced coma since November
Last November 18-year-old student Kym Owens was found a short distance from her accommodation in Maynooth with serious injuries. Since then, Kym has been in an induced coma at Connolly Hospital Blanchardstown, and her condition is described as serious but stable.
Last night our reporter Brian O’Connell met with members of the Owens family at a fundraising concert for Kym, in her hometown of Castleblaney County Monaghan.
In mid December the Home Sweet Home housing group occupied Apollo House in Dublin’s city centre and an application for an injunction was brought Mazars who are the receivers of the building...
The court gave the group a stay until today at noon when they are due to leave the building, but will they be going?
Our reporter Evelyn O’Rourke brought us the latest ahead of their noon evacuation. And Paddy O'Gorman spoke to residents of Apollo House.
