Gardaí have discovered a suspected cannabis growhouse at house near Drogheda, Co Louth where a man (28) died in an explosion overnight. Two other people, a man in his 50s and a woman in her 20s, are being treated for burns after the incident at a house at The Cottages on the Termonfeckin Road at Beaulieu. Their injuries are described as serious but not life-threatening. The man was pronounced dead at the scene while the two injured people were taken to Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda.
Gardaí arrested a man with a gun at the emergency department of Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital in Drogheda over the weekend. The man, believed to be in his 30s and from Drogheda, had gone to the hospital for treatment on Saturday afternoon. While in the emergency department, he was found to have a gun on him along with a number of rounds of ammunition and a small amount of cannabis resin. Gardaí were called at about 4pm. The man was arrested under section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act.
The widow of a man killed while driving home during Storm Ophelia believes he would be alive if only emergency vehicles were permitted on the roads during a status red weather alert. Pamela Goss called for clear guidelines to be brought in so that the next time there is such a weather event workers know to “stay at home.”Her husband Fintan Goss (33) was five minutes from their home in Ravensdale, Co Louth when a tree fell on his car on October 16th.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
