Organisers of an anti-Isis march in London have spoken of their frustration after mainstream media outlets failed to cover the demonstration. Thousands of people took part in the annual UK Arbaeen Procession, coordinated by the Husaini Islamic Trust UK, on Sunday.

Sean Kelly is the only Irish MEP who sits on the committee that will vote on TTIP next Monday. He knows most Irish people are against this awful trade deal but still wants it to go ahead. Sign this urgent petition to force him to reconsider his support for secret corporate courts.

So, "new" G+.

Clicking 'Post', by default, will post to the last Circle or Community or Collection you posted to. Careful, now!

To +1 a comment, click on the plusses it already has (or the "three dots" symbol) and click +1. Instead of just being able to click the "+1" symbol. Makes no sense.

Hangouts removed. You need to be on your Gmail tab or a dedicated Hangouts tab for those, now. Because, er...

Events removed. Because, er...

The option to post Polls without reverting to "Classic" G+ - yeah, removed.

It's almost like... +Google accidentally hired a Facebooker who hates +Google+ to be in charge of the G+ interface.

People working in Google - any ideas why this might be? Is there some logic I'm missing in why Google are actively making G+ a worse experience? +andrew mcmillan; +Moritz Tolxdorff; +Niall Murphy

+Anton Sweeney it seems to me that G+ is in the process of switching codebase, and the new web version (which is the one with the most dramatic changes) is still an optional trial while they work through all the issues.  Do click the "feedback" button, because it does get read.

Simply the best food I've had the pleasure of eating in a Dublin restaurant. There's a reason it's got not one but two Michelin stars (the only Irish restaurant to have two!) Exquisitely presented food (modern French food), tasted delicious. Service was absolutely excellent. Yes, it's expensive, but well worth it for a special occasion - or, as in my case, a guest at a business lunch ;-)

I've been here three times now - twice for work "Christmas lunches", and once in the evening for a friend's birthday. Food has always been delicious, and very well presented even when the restaurant is really busy. Service is friendly but can be a tad slow/chaotic at times - e.g., people being served soup not being given a spoon, or asking for a drink and having to remind the waiter. That said, I've always been in when they've been very busy. A little on the pricey side, especially drinks. Some bottled craft beers available (Irish Porterhouse, Belgian Chimay and others) but for €5.75 I'd be expecting a 500ml bottle, not a 330ml. Will be back, though - I intend returning soon for Sunday brunch, which has been recommended to me.

Busy café in Smithfield. Very busy when we arrived (no booking), partly due to lashing rain. Quick and efficient waiting staff were very helpful. Brunch arrived quickly, and was delicious, with generous portions. Quite good coffee with free refills. Will definitely be back.

This Italian/Mediterranean restaurant is lively and busy. Pizzas and pastas form the larger part of the menu, but they also do salads, burgers and a grill, as well as seasonal specials. Gluten-free pasta options were available. Full wine menu, with several beers available (Peroni, Erdinger, Kentucky Bourbon Beer, and locally brewed Bru Rí, an award-winning IPA) and Rekorderlig cider. Service was quick and friendly despite being very busy on the New Year's weekend (booking recommended, at least at weekends). Food was delicious and portions were generous. My seafood chowder was rich and creamy and was served with a portion of dough balls. The peri-peri chicken wings were a hit with everyone at the table and are especially recommended. Only criticism would be that it was quite expensive for Italian food - circa €25 for a ribeye steak, €19 for a tuna grill, and one of the specials was a whopping €34 for a t-bone steak. Three courses for four people came to €118 (pizza/pasta mains, one of the mains taken as a starter-sized portion), including one beer, one soft drink and two coffees.

Excellent and growing choice of craft beers, including growler fills.

Limited menu. Average food. 'Children eat free on Sundays' but apparently there is invisible small print that goes on to say 'but not if the Sunday is on a Bank Holiday weekend'. Ho hum, be like that, then. Well reflect your stinginess in our tip.
