Johnson is evidently hoping that people haven't read the GFA, where this is not the definition of "rigorous impartiality".

5 of these drop out once you put in €2k a month as a maximum rent.
🏡There are only 31 Properties to Rent in the whole of Kerry on Daft currently. 🏡 On Airbnb, there are 1,959.🏡 I know too many people my age in Kerry that are living at home due to rent prices and the cost of houses. Many of them are considering leaving Ireland this year.

This is correct. If Stormont doesn't act on this, Dublin should build the university in Donegal in Bridge End.

That's part of it, no doubt, but important to bear in mind the methodology used by university rankers.
This is nuts…the natural consequence of students becoming “customers”? Gotta keep the clients happy I suppose. thetimes.co.uk/article/1f64f…

I know a lot of people in UKHE put a lot of effort into REF, and this is the culmination of years of effort, so I'll confine myself to saying that I hope you pensions are reinstated to a level commensurate with the work you are putting in. Also, you all deserve a raise.

John Burns apparently took a very different lesson from Oliver Twist to the rest of us. The rest of the article is interesting on the links between RTÉ's Brainstorm and universities (thetimes.co.uk/article/rtes-…)

This looks like a more expansive regime than existed previously, as it looks like all residents in the State (rather than EU/EEA as was formerly the case) will be exempt from UK visa requirements.
The government is confident that non-British and Irish residents in the State will be exempt from the UK’s controversial new borders bill, the Irish Examiner can reveal. | @aoifegracemoore reports irishexaminer.com/news/polit…

One of my favourite things about statutes in a system of parliamentary supremacy is where the language is incredibly strong, and inevitably reversed. This is from a 1783 Act (George III, c 28): "established and ascertained for ever". Obsolete within 20 years.

I heard the same question on Claire Byrne last Friday, and I thought at the time that it was a strange question. The question is a legal one, rather than a medical one - what do the provisions of the NMH agreement allow? It's not a question that a hospital doctor can answer.
If it’s at root a dispute over the legal implications of religious ownership, why would you simply ‘trust hospital doctors’? I’d be more inclined to trust them on a medical issue(relatively!) thejournal.ie/national-mater…
