Endangered Asiatic Lion Cubs Born at Fota Wildlife Park

Endangered Asiatic Lion Cubs Born at Fota Wildlife Park

Endangered Asiatic Lion Cubs Born at Fota Wildlife ParkFota Wildlife Park in Ireland has welcomed the birth of three endangered Asiatic lion cubs, a momentous event for the park’s conservation efforts. The male cubs were born a month ago to lioness Arya, who was part of the first lion cub litter born at Fota almost seven years ago.

The Asiatic lion is classified as endangered, with a wild population of only 500-600 individuals, making wildlife parks like Fota crucial in safeguarding the species. The cubs, weighing around 4.5 kilos each, have been thriving under the care of their experienced mother, Arya, and their attentive father, Yali.

The park’s lead ranger, Julien Fonteneau, expressed his speaking to RTE NEWS delight, stating that the cubs are vital to Fota’s breeding program and the global efforts to preserve the Asiatic lion population. The cubs will be ready to breed themselves when they reach two years old, and a decision will be made at that time whether to keep them at Fota or send them elsewhere for breeding.


Fota Wildlife Park is inviting the public to suggest names for the three cubs PRESS HERE TO NAME, as the park continues to celebrate this significant milestone in its conservation work.

Outrage as Soldier Walks Free After Vicious Attack

Outrage as Soldier Walks Free After Vicious Attack

An Irish soldier savagely beat a woman unconscious in a random street attack and then bragged about it on social media, only to walk free from court with a suspended sentence. Cathal Crotty (22) of Parkroe Heights, Ardnacrusha, Co Clare, mercilessly assaulted Natasha O’Brien (24) on May 29, 2022, blaming her for the attack until CCTV footage exposed his lies. He boasted on Snapchat, “Two to put her down, two to put her out,” referring to the blows he inflicted.

Despite his violent actions and the lifelong trauma endured by Ms. O’Brien, Crotty, described by his superior as an “exemplary” soldier, received no jail time. His superior testified to Crotty’s professionalism, seemingly dismissing the brutality of his actions. Judge Tom O’Donnell acknowledged the severity of the assault but cited Crotty’s clean record and military career in his decision to impose a fully suspended three-year sentence.


Ms. O’Brien, who suffered severe physical and psychological injuries, expressed her disbelief and frustration, saying the sentence sends a dangerous message that such violence goes unpunished. This leniency has sparked public outrage, highlighting a perceived miscarriage of justice and failure to protect victims of violence.

Cork’s Water Crisis: Taoiseach Urged to Act

Cork’s Water Crisis: Taoiseach Urged to Act

Cork’s Water Crisis: Taoiseach Urged to ActThe Taoiseach is being urged to visit Cork to meet Uisce Éireann officials and establish a timeline to resolve the city’s discoloured water issues. Residents have been dealing with this problem, affecting everything from laundry and food preparation to showering. They express frustration over the inadequate response from Uisce Éireann, who are only conducting flushing works.

Sonya Cashman from Spring Lane, Blackpool, told RedFM News that Taoiseach Simon Harris needs to understand the daily struggles caused by the poor water quality. “He has to come down and show support for people who are struggling to buy water to wash their children. People are buying bottled water for their dogs. I wouldn’t wash my plants with this water. Everyone dealing with this issue is fed up,” she said.

Residents are calling for immediate action, emphasizing the urgent need for clean water in their community. The persistent water quality issues have driven locals to demand a face-to-face meeting with the Taoiseach to push for a swift and effective resolution.

Cork Business Launches Book Health & We

Cork Business Launches Book Health & Welness For Young Men

The health and wellness male grooming skills training facilitates advice and practical tips for health and wellness, including personal care, cancer awareness, and mental health, including Diet, hair care, skin care, nail care, brows and shaving. The programme was designed by Anne Marie McIlwraith, D.S.Ch, Dip.Soc, HDICHP, Dip.Ref, Dip.Barbering, Fellow of the British and International Hairdressing Council, Master Barber Tutor, MHR, MIAPR, D.PM, D.Human Nutrition.

The overall wellbeing of youths can be enhanced when they look and feel better; it boosts their self-esteem.

As a specialist in male grooming, from experience I recognise that many of our younger customers, teens and young men, may not have been offered professional information or advice to address their self-care, hygiene, and particularly shaving skills. For that reason, I have created a Health and Wellness, Male Grooming Skills training programme to help our young men achieve the best results for their personal care and grooming needs.
