The apology sounded like it was being read ouy by Hook from something smone else prepared. It sounded like 1 of those apoologies your hear when a libel letter has arrived in to the Editor.

*The average cost of renting a home in the Republic has increased by €134 a month over the last year, *
What he means of course is that the monthly cost of renting a home has increased by €134 over the last year. I’m not sure which is worse, Conor Pope’s sloppy drafting or the sub-editors who put up with it.
"A sperm is not a human being, an ovum is not a human being. Together they do not make up a human being. They become an embryo with a very risky future. Studies indicate that up to 50 per cent of embryos are lost before implantation, and of the remainder up to 20 per cent are lost in miscarriages.
In other words as many as 70 per cent of embryos may never make it."
Kevin O’Sullivan - disastrous editor of the IT - now merely a hack really loves to describe people who agree with him as experts
Joseph Curtin is not a climate scientist. He has a Masters in in Political Economy from the LSE and manages not to bother himself much about economics either. Nowhere in the article is there a discussion of Ireland’s lack of sun (available when there is least demand for it) or the rather poor economics behind it. No consideration that other renewables might be more efficient or more suitable for Ireland. The usual demands for Government “incentives” and if you’re again’ it then you’re a climate change denying luddite
It’s pure preaching to the choir stuff - just a Friends of the Earth press release
