IT systems analyst Loretta McSherry (64) told the court that she had popped into Marks & Spencer at Dundrum Shopping Centre to buy some food. The accident happened when an employee came off the ladder as Ms McSherry walked along the bakery aisle. “I gave the step ladder a wide berth. I was not aware of anybody on the ladder,” she said. “I was struck in the shoulder as I walked past. It was like my Superman moment, I flew forward.” Ms McSherry said she experienced the worst pain of her life going up her leg, adding that it was excruciating and she was rolling along the floor. The grandmother, who fractured her thigh bone, said she was later told her injury was consistent with a high-speed car accident. Ms McSherry, who had to have two operations and use crutches, said she was out of work for four months after the accident and had to celebrate her 60th birthday in Portugal on crutches. She said she was a member of a golf club before the accident, but did not … [Read more...] about Grandmother sues M&S over ‘Superman’ fall that had ‘catastrophic’ affect of her life

The texture is good. 143 calories per 100g. VegiDeli Lincolnshire Style Sausages, 295g (8), €3.75 4/10 'Tastes like wet breadcrumbs,' said one of our testers, and indeed the consistency of these soya protein sausages was not popular.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but the drop-out rate among people who join the gym in January is significant (60-80pc according to varying reports). We tend to attribute this drop-out rate to a simple lack of willpower. After all, if the prospect of financial loss isn't going to get you off the couch, then what will? We're less inclined to think about newcomers' experiences during those first few visits - and the 'gymtimidating' factors that might be pushing them away. All social groups are territorial by their very nature - we're animals after all - but this dynamic is much more pronounced in the testosterone-soaked culture of the gym where people pound their chests by way of pumping iron. Walking into a gym for the first time is never easy for a newcomer. In fact, it's a little like turning up to a party and realising none of your friends are there yet. Of course, at a party you can always take out your phone and pretend to text people. In a gym, your phone is stowed away in your locker … [Read more...] about Katie Byrne: ‘Is ‘gymtimidation’ making newbies abandon their fitness goals?’
