THE BOURNE LEGACY

Although this film is named after Jason Bourne there isn't sight nor sound of Matt Damon in the movie and the focus is definitely on the legacy part of the film.

The movie stars Jermey Renner as a Bourne type figure who realises quite quickly that the shadowy organisation that really brought him into being as the man that he is today is out to get him and anyone else involved in the government programme that he was involved in.

He gets a not too subtle clue about this when a drone blows up a mountainside cabin he was staying in with another member of the programme. Not content with this the programme realises that they didn't do a good enough job and that he is still alive so Renner has to do some self surgery to take out his

Harry Kvist is happy to be leaving Langholmen Prison after serving a stretch for a year and a half although he is not so happy to be leaving his prison lover behind.

A story by a Waterford native features prominently in a new book recalling the halcyon days of the showband era which was launched this month.

'From The Candy Store to the Galtymore' chronicles the late 1950s to the 1970s in rural and urban Ireland through the stories of the young men and women who went to their local Ballroom of Romance each weekend.

The book echoes an era of social and cultural uprising in Ireland as the country began dancing the weekends away to the sounds of showbands in newly-built ballrooms.

It was the time of Larry Cunningham, Joe Dolan, Brendan Bowyer, Dickie Rock and Butch Moore and wherever they played, the crowds followed.

Joan Griffin, nee Aulsberry, a native of Ballyduff, Kilmeadan, writes about her time in London as a young mother and how she would go to dances sometime – not to

    Paradise papersOne of the most surprising things about the release of the copious amounts of tax details of some of the richest people on the planet wasn't the names of the people involved but the fact that three of them were actors from Mrs. Brown's Boys. Between them the three had accounts nearing 2 million euros in off-shore accounts and let's face it, these people aren't exactly Robert De Niros or Meryl Streeps but three bog standard, and that's putting it mildly, actors, from a middling comedy serie …
