Topics
The Irish News Confidence: 80% Arrow up

It habitually includes glossy magazines.

Aside from its anglophone material, the Independent also publishes a weekly supplement in the Irish language called Seachtain.

Weather forecasting Confidence: 74% Arrow up

Weather forecasting is the application of science and technology to predict the state of the atmosphere for a given location.

Human beings have attempted to predict the weather informally for millennia, and formally since the nineteenth century.

Weather forecasts are made by collecting quantitative data about the current state of the atmosphere at a given place and using scientific understanding of atmospheric processes to project how the atmosphere will change.

Ireland Confidence: 74% Arrow up

Ireland (Ulster-Scots) is an island in the North Atlantic.

It is separated from Great Britain to its east by the North Channel, the Irish Sea, and St George's Channel.

Ireland is the second-largest island of the British Isles, the third-largest in Europe, and the twentieth-largest on Earth.

Breaking news Confidence: 73% Arrow up

Breaking news, interchangeably termed latebreaking news and also known as a special report or special coverage or news bulletin, is a current issue that broadcasters feel warrants the interruption of scheduled programming and/or current news in order to report its details.

Its use is also assigned to the most significant story of the moment or a story that is being covered live.

It could be a story that is simply of wide interest to viewers and has little impact otherwise.

Many times, breaking news is used after the news organization has already reported on the story.

When a story has not been reported on previously, the graphic and phrase "Just In" is sometimes used instead.
