Man faces IRA member charge

A DUBLIN man charged with membership of an unlawful organisation has been granted bail by the non-jury Special Criminal Court.

David Murray (54) of Cappogue Cottages, Finglas Dublin 11, is charged with membership of an unlawful organisation styling itself the Irish Republican Army, otherwise Oglaigh Na hÉíreann, otherwise the IRA on March 25, 2015.

He was granted bail by the three-judge, non-jury court yesterday on his own bond of €100. An independent surety of €20,000 was also present in court.

Mr Murray was remanded in custody with consent to bail until May 19 when it is expected a book of evidence will be served.

Stones hit the road once more

The Rolling Stones are zipping across North America again. The rock icons announced a 15-city stadium tour that will kick off on May 24 at Petco Park in San Diego, California.

The Zip Code tour will be their first North American tour since 2006.

The band interrupted last year's 14 On Fire tour and rescheduled all dates after fashion designer L'Wren Scott, Jagger's companion since 2001, took her own life.

Susanna suffers dress disaster

Good Morning Britain presenter Susanna Reid had to rush off to change her dress during the breakfast TV show after suffering a wardrobe malfunction.

Viewers discovered that the star, 44, who blamed "physics" for the tear, had disappeared from her desk after a news bulletin.

John Stapleton told viewers that Reid's dress had split "spectacularly" and joked that being accidentally flashed by his co-presenter was "one of the bonuses of the show they don't put in the job description".
