Gardaí have issued an appeal after more then 50 televisions were stolen from a shop in Lucan Retail Park.

Gardaí are now calling for witnesses to come forward and ask that if you were in the area between 1.30am and 3.30am, to make yourself known.

They noted that the van used in the robbery had a number of ladders tied to the roof, which may spark a witness's memory.

Gardaí in Lucan Garda Station are conducting the investigation, and have also asked the public to get in touch if they see any TVs for sale in the area.

“During the course of this burglary a number of TV’s were taken and we would again ask the public to contact gardaí if they have any information or are offered a TV for sale," a Garda spokeswoman said.

For those of you who watched Big Little Lies earlier this year, there's no denying that Nicole Kidman put her heart and soul into the role of Celeste.

Regularly abused by her husband – both physically and emotionally –  the outwardly poised mother-of-two sets about concealing the domestic hell in which she is living.

And if you found it almost unbearable to watch, the Australian actress found it even more difficult to act.

Reflecting on the role which won her new-found acclaim, Nicole revealed that the nature of the scenes she portrayed with Alexander Skarsgard left her traumatised.

Referring to one particularly harrowing scene, she told The Hollywood Reporter: "I remember lying on the floor in the last episode, being in my underwear and having just been really thrown around."

"I just lay on the floor. I couldn't get up. I didn't want to get up. And I remember Jean-Marc [Vallée, the show's director] coming over and putting a towel over me in between the takes."

Nicole went on to explain that those feelings didn't disappear with the sound of the director's clapperboard.

"I just felt completely humiliated and devastated. And angry inside. I went home and I threw a rock through a glass door," she revealed.

Remembering a phone call she received that particular evening, her co-star, Reese Witherspoon, agreed that Nicole's role in the programme brought about a shift in her perspective.

"She says, "I've just done the craziest thing." Reese recalled.

"She got home from work and she had one of these horrible scenes and she goes, "I couldn't get into my hotel room so I threw a rock through the window…I don't do stuff like that.'"


Don't fancy going out tonight?

This and much more on The Ray D’Arcy Show this Saturday at 9:35pm on RTÉ One.



Remember when Ireland pretty much owned the Eurovision?

Oh, the other countries would show up alright, but we'd basically wipe the floor with them, and that is exactly why the Irish have a very special place in their hearts for the annual song contest.

If you're one of the thousands who tune in year in and year out then you'll be pleased to hear that by simply parking yourself in front of the box and popping a bottle or two of vino, you'll be in with a chance to get up front and centre with the one and only Graham Norton.

If you want to get your hands on a VIP trip to The Graham Norton Show, pick up a bottle of Graham Norton GN Sauvignon Blanc or Shiraz in Centra this week, and simply tweet a snap of yourself tucking in.

Don't forget to stick the #CentraLovesGraham hashtag on your post, and then sit back and prepare your story for the Corkman's Big Red Chair.

Cheers, ladies!

Stop everything.

Rumours of a Friends reunion have been circulating for years, and now our prayers have finally been answered.

Friends! The Musical is happening.

Yes, that’s right. Prepare to get up close and personal with some of television's most loved characters –Ross, Rachel, Phoebe, Monica, Joey and Chandler are back, only this time they’ll be live on stage, belting out a tune or two.

According to The Huffington Post, the song list includes some hilariously titled hits such as:

  • We Were on a Break!

  • How You Doing, Ladies?

  • The Only Coffee Shop in New York City

  • Oh. My. God. It’s Janice!

  • Could I BE Any More… in Love with Monica?

  • We’ll Always Be There For You

Although the show is not officially endorsed by the creators of the sitcom, the script will focus entirely on the original gang and is set to include some of their most memorable hijinks.

The stage show was written by Bob and Tobly McSmith who have had off-Broadway success with their musical parodies of 90210 and Keeping up with the Kardashians.

Friends! The Musical will open in New York’s Triad Theater this autumn, and with no further shows scheduled, we can only wait in hope that the spectacle will make it across the pond!   

Oh, and while we have you; don't forget to have your say in the inaugural SHEmazing Awards this May! It's time to vote, and you can do it right here!


If you're one of the millions who still knows the lyrics to My Lovely Horse off by heart, you may need to sit down before reading on.

According to emerging reports, the people behind our beloved Fr Ted are not adverse to the notion of bringing Craggy Island, and the folk who populate it, to the big stage.

Speaking to the Sunday Business Post, the show's creator, Graham Linehan, acknowledged that the transition would have to facilitate a fairly whopper storyline.

"It would have to be about Ted becoming Pope, or some weird succession thing that means Ted’s next in line. It would have to be substantial and big," he argued.

"I think there is an argument you could make a Ted musical where you really go for the jugular and you get all the things people loved about it, all the innocence and all the sweetness, but introduce a harder edge."

Anyone else see Graham Norton reprising the role of Fr. Noel Furlong for this one?!

As opening credits go, Sex and the City is pretty memorable.

From the iconic tutu to the snapshot into a busy New York street, the guys behind the hit HBO series definitely nailed it.

But it looks like it took a few versions if recent footage doing the rounds online is anything to go by.

A 35-second clip, which was uploaded to YouTube yesterday, shows the writer in an almost identical set-up, but without the trademark tutu and unfortunate showering.

Take a look at this…
