    An historic photo of Fulmoth Kearney, President Obama’s Irish ancestor from Moneygall, Co, Offaly, has at last been found. Merlyn White, Obama's third cousin once removed, recently learned of her connection to the president while visiting a distant relation in Scotland. The news led her to reconsider an old family photo album she had inherited from her 107-year-old great aunt. In the album's pages she found portraits of Fulmoth and his wife Charlotte, which she shared with genealogist Megan Smolenyak, who first identified Fulmoth as Obama's Irish ancestor. This revelation of the photo comes on the heels of the discovery...

    Israel sharply condemned a Dublin city council decision to fly the Palestinian flag above the capital’s city hall next month in solidarity with the Palestinian people “living under brutal occupation.” “If the Dublin municipality approves the decision, it will essentially be waving a white flag of surrender to terrorist organizations, hatred and extortion,” the Israeli Foreign Ministry’s spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon told the Ynet news site. “This is a hostile decision that affects first and foremost the decent citizens of Dublin, and also places a stain of shame on the city,” he added. A Dublin city council subcommittee passed the motion...

    In Agatha Christie’s classic Murder on the Orient Express, the great detective Hercule Poirot faces an unusual challenge. There are too many suspects—too many people with obvious motives for committing the crime. That’s how I feel about the news that Archbishop Charles Brown, the apostolic nuncio in Ireland, is being transferred to Albania. This is not a subtle move. The Vatican is explaining that it’s just a routine rotation; every now and then papal diplomats are given new assignments. That would make sense, except that: +Archbishop Brown is not a career diplomat. Pope Benedict sent him to Ireland, at a...

    DUBLIN — A local school board member, whose father is head of Hillary Clinton’s campaign, has been connected to allegations sprung from WikiLeaks. Megan Rouse, a Dublin school board member elected in 2014, was mentioned in the hacked email allegations that her father, John Podesta, hid stocks connected to Russia. Documents show that Podesta received 75,000 shares of Joule Unlimited Technologies, which was linked to alleged money laundering by the Russian government, according to media reports. Podesta is Clinton’s campaign chair. The hacked Jan. 3, 2014 document shows that Podesta transferred more than 25,000 of these shares to Leonidio Holdings...

    German property firms expect a boom in Frankfurt as financial businesses move activities and staff out of London in the wake of Brexit, an industry survey showed on Monday. A majority of 72 percent of respondents believed financial center Frankfurt, rather than rivals Dublin, Paris, or Amsterdam, would gain the most from Britain leaving the European Union, the study of 555 firms by consultants Ernst & Young (EY) found. The German property market as a whole would get a boost from Brexit, 57 percent of those polled said, with large majorities expecting prices for commercial and residential properties to increase....

    A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the State Department to produce the e-mail records of Hillary Clinton’s scheduler during her tenure as secretary of state, expanding an investigation being pursued by conservative nonprofit Citizens United into the overlap between Clinton’s official travel and her meetings with foreign Clinton Foundation donors. Citizens United is slated to receive all e-mails sent to and from Lona Valmoro, Clinton’s State Department scheduler, in the two-week periods before each of 14 international trips Clinton took during her four years in office. David Bossie, president of Citizens United, hopes to confirm suspicions that Clinton maintained an...

    Gardaí arrested one person after scuffles broke out between protesters and the Public Order Unit outside Dublin’s Glasnevin Cemetery.

    Gunmen disguised as police opened fire on boxing fans at a Dublin hotel Friday, killing one man and wounding two others in an attack that could reflect tensions within Ireland's top cocaine-smuggling gang. Fans attending the weigh-in ceremonies for a Dublin boxing event fled in terror as two gunmen wearing police uniforms opened fire inside the lobby of the Regency Hotel. Witnesses inside the ballroom hosting the ceremony saw two other men in the crowd, including one disguised as a woman, running away holding handguns. It wasn't clear whether they opened fire, were working as scouts for the other gunmen,...

    Amnesty approves policy to decriminalize sex tradeLONDON (AP) — Amnesty International has approved a controversial policy to endorse the de-criminalization of the sex trade, rejecting complaints by women’s rights groups who say it is tantamount to advocating the legalization of pimping and brothel owning. At its decision-making forum in Dublin on Tuesday, the human rights group approved the resolution to recommend “full decriminalization of all aspects of consensual sex work.” It argues its research suggests decriminalization is the best way to defend sex workers’ human rights.

    Irish police arrested a man in Dublin earlier this week who they suspected of being an ISIS extremist and who had been under surveillance since he was deported from Turkey. Last Thursday the suspect attempted to fly from Dublin to Istanbul, but he was sent back to Ireland as authorities in the Turkish city felt that there were “irregularities” with the Eastern European passport he was using. On his return to Dublin, Irish police (Gardaí) made the decision not to arrest him but placed the man in his 30s under surveillance as he left Dublin airport. Earlier this week, however,...

    The speaker of the US House of Representatives, John Boehner, has told a Dublin audience of his determination to overcome Republican resistance to immigration reform. Mr. Boehner also told how Taoiseach Enda Kenny has harangued him on the matter, telling him how the lack of reform has left some Irish immigrants listening to a parent’s funeral by phone. His remarks indicate he may yet move to confront opponents of reform within his own Republican party, which is in the vanguard of resistance to it and has a majority in the House.
