Single-Handed (RTE 2007-2010, Owen McDonnell)

Few directors, or viewers, can resist the lure of a Land Rover — it generally is a Land Rover — tootling away down a country lane in between jostling hillocks and pastures green. Single-Handed was filmed entirely on location in Connemara, and the stunning setting is inseparable from the story. Yet if it sounds like Ballykissangel with uniforms, be advised: its writer is Barry Simner, the man who co-wrote the award-winning, knuckle-hard ITV police drama The Vice. He is not a man for chocolate-box television. We all liked the countryside but we hated the kind of soft-centred dramas that you usually get: Heartbeat territory. Single-Handed, it is safe to say, is not soft-centred. The set-up is modern-day Western — a new sheriff in a two-bit town, learning the hard way how folk round here do things — but it descends gradually from an inquiry into a solitary suicide to a tale of corruption, prostitution and incest. By the end of only the first episode Jack Driscoll has been betrayed by just about everyone, and everything, he knew. It is a bleak tale worthy of a bleak setting. Barry Simner lives in North Wales, an area that is visually, if not culturally, similar to Connemara.

Baker voluntarily took a bazooka and dashed alone to within yards of the enemy. Through heavy rifle and machinegun fire that was directed at him by the enemy, he knocked out the strong point, enabling his company to assault the ridge. Some days later while his company advanced across the open field flanked with obstructions and places of concealment for the enemy, Sgt. Baker again voluntarily took up a position in the rear to protect the company against surprise attack and came upon 2 heavily fortified enemy pockets manned by 2 officers and 10 enlisted men which had been bypassed.

Without regard for such superior numbers, he unhesitatingly attacked and killed all of them.

He is regarded by many, among them his presumed killer , as the greatest knight who ever lived. As the wielder of the sword Dawn , which had been forged from the metal of a fallen star, he bore the title of “the Sword of the Morning “. He was sent to deal with the Kingswood Brotherhood and subsequently killed the Smiling Knight in a duel. During the battle to suppress the outlaws, he also knighted Jaime Lannister for his bravery.

Arthur was an accomplished swordsman and fought against Prince Rhaegar Targaryen in many tournaments , including during the Great Tourney at Harrenhal. Arthur worked for the betterment of the smallfolk , often bringing their problems before the king. As a result, he was popular among them. He also saw to it that the commoners were compensated for their goods being taken by the forces of the realm. While skimming The Book of Brothers , King Joffrey Baratheon reads through the entry on Ser Arthur Dayne, mentioning his leading of the attack on the Kingswood Brotherhood and his defeat of the Smiling Knight , one of its members, in single combat.

The Book of Brothers also mentions that at one point he was granted temporary command over the Kingsguard after Lord Commander Gerold Hightower suffered injuries.


His work transformed the literary sensibility of his countrymen, reshaped the language of their poetry and prose, opened their eyes to the beauty of their land and its natural features, and accelerated their determination to achieve political independence. But although he is indisputably a “national poet” — and a fine one — there is nothing parochial about his work. His greatest poems rise far above local concerns and limitations.

Directed by Anthony Byrne. With Owen McDonnell, Robert Bannon, Antony Byrne​, Catherine Byrne. Whilst looking into the drowning of a local teenager, Garda.

Rosses Point was numbed with shock and grief last weekend when three local men were drowned in one of the worst tragedies in Sligo Bay for many years. The men, two of whom were in their twenties, were lost when their boat was overturned by a freak wave in the vicinity of Blackrock Lighthouse as they attempted to reach a stranded boat early on Sunday morning. Three others who accompanied them were saved after they scrambled onto the reef of the lighthouse and sent up distress flares.

During a massive sea-air search, which was quickly mounted, the body of one of those drowned, James Leydon, a married man, was found. The search, on sea and along shoreline, continued all this week for the remaining bodies. Up to yesterday Wednesday , however, nothing had been found. Lost in the tragedy were – James Leyden, aged 58, who was Principal Light keeper of Eagle Island, off the County Mayo coast; Michael McLaughlin, 24, a seaman, who it is understood, was to be married in the Autumn and was to join a vessel of the Irish shipping Ltd.

All were natives of Rosses Point. The drownings came after a day of drama at Rosses Point when three young men, who got into difficulties while lobster fishing, were rescued from the Blackrock. In fact Michael McLaughlin, who so tragically lost his life later played a hero’s part in bringing these men ashore after their boat was thrown off the rocks by heavy seas.
