Northern Ireland today is characterised by the fact that neither section of the community is happy with the status quo or has confidence in or a sense of direction about the future.
The establishment of Northern Ireland as a separate political unit was contrary to the desire of the great majority of Irish people for the political unity and sovereignty of Ireland as expressed in the last all-Ireland election of 1918.

It is my understanding that the new fare, which has a very limited availability, is being introduced on an experimental basis and that IATA machinery will continue to be used by both airlines in discussing tariff proposals with each other and with other European airlines.
Ireland is a party to an international agreement of 1967 on the procedure for the establishment of tariffs for scheduled air services and I do not propose any departure from those procedures at the present time.
I will, of course, keep the matter under review, taking account of developments both within the EEC and within ECAC, the European Civil Aviation Conference, which is representative of 22 European civil aviation administrations.

 Gremlins [1984] DVD at Shop Ireland
The Gremlins themselves are incredibly realistic (as is Gizmo), and it's amazing to see that a film made in 1984 can still look this good today.
Even though this film was marketed towards kids upon its release in 1984, it's not really ideal viewing for them.
When it was released in cinemas in America as a "PG", it caused a great deal of controversey, and it's pretty clear why it received a "15" certificate over here.

 Dune [1984] DVD at Shop Ireland

In short this is the one film that would truly benefit from a directors cut (along with Fire Walk with Me!) I have little to add to the review of the film itself that has already been expressed in other reviews, but would say this.
A measure of the success of this 1984 film is that it is clear that Brian Herbert (co-author the 1999 prequel to Dune and son of the late Frank Herbert)seem to have clearly (to me at least) looked carefully at this film to influence his descriptions and visualisation for that novel.
