MORE to folly
The Grand Canal very much devoid of can drinkers this evening by Portobello Harbour.
And a nice evening at that.
It’s almost spooky.
One squad car spotted nearby may explain this. #canalcans

Páirc an Fhionnuisce/Phoenix Park this evening….
This morning without permission these boxes were put in my office. Shortly afterwards the SF Dáil Political Manager came in shouting “F*ck off out of this floor, F*ck off out of this area & F*ck off out of this office before something happens”….. 21 years I gave these people. pic.twitter.com/gn8OVktf2u

A baby Gorilla clings to its mother Kafi in the Gorilla Rainforest.
On April 1, after a gestation period of around 8-and-a-half months, Kafi gave birth to the healthy infant weighing approximately 2-2.5kg.
Zoo keepers have been unable to determine the gender of the infant as Kafi has been keeping the baby close to her chest since the birth.

No evidence: Barr says the special counsel’s report didn’t prove that members of the Trump campaign or anyone associated with it conspired with Russia pic.twitter.com/CbUZWS1l38

Special counsel Robert Mueller considered 10 “episodes” involving actions by President Trump that might have been been connected to obstruction of justice, Attorney General Bill Barr said — but the Justice Department concluded they do not amount to a breach of the law.
Barr said he is satisfied Trump had “non-corrupt motives” and that is what prompted him to decide not to prosecute the president.
Because investigators did not find a conspiracy between Trump’s campaign and the Russian interference in the 2016 election, that suggested Trump wasn’t trying to cover anything up, Barr said. And notwithstanding his frequent public outrage about the matter, Trump cooperated with Mueller’s inquiry, Barr said.
