The full solar eclipse seen across part of the U.S. last August captivated the nation, becoming one of the most photographed events in recent memory. Now, it may turn out that one of the most jaw-dropping images of the event was taken from a Southwest Airlines flight flying at 39,000 feet.

The proposed OPW flood relief project for Cork City is the culmination of 11 years of detailed scientific and engineering study carried out by experts, writes Valerie O’Sullivan.There has been a great deal of discussion over the past number of months about the proposed flood relief works for Cork City.Much of the dialogue has been one-sided, and it seems that the opposing voices are loudest, although not necessarily in the majority.
