Good morning to you! First morning this year the cold didn't hit me as I got out of the car for work - maybe this means summer's on the way! A mainly dry day today (but rain and wind warnings for the west coast). Top temperatures around 13 degrees...

1. The Minister for Housing's been asked to order a review after a homeless man was found dead in a chair at Tallaght Hospital. It's believed the man in his forties had been taking shelter in the hospital's emergency department and had not sought treatment. An investigation was launched after he was discovered unresponsive on Saturday afternoon.

2. Britain's Prime Minister will stand up in the House of Commons later to explain to MPs why she didn't get their approval before launching airstrikes in Syria. Theresa May is expected to say the attack on chemical weapons facilities was in Britain's national interest.

3. Around 100 jobs are on the way to Dublin. French sports retailer Decathlon is planning on locating in Ballymun.


4. Ant McPartlin is due to appear in court later after being charged with drink-driving. The TV star was involved in a car crash in south-west London last month. It's understood Ant has checked into a rehabilitation facility. If he is found guilty he could face up to six months in prison, an unlimited fine and a driving ban for at least a year.

5. Manchester City have won the Premier League title after second-placed Manchester United were stunned 1-0 at home by West Bromwich Albion. Pep Guardiola's side cant be caught at the top of the table after United's shock defeat to the bottom-of-the-table Baggies. Jay Rodriguez's 73rd-minute strike sealed United's fate. It marks manager Pep Guardiola's first league title in England.

6. When it comes to choosing a holiday Irish people would rather be culture vultures than beach bums. An AA travel survey shows we're not that pushed about lazing in the sun and our biggest priority is value for money.

Broadcast Journalist on Radio Nova with a flair for writing on - I spend my days bringing you all the news you need to know...

I love to travel and I've lived and worked in six countries outside Ireland!

When I'm not at work, I can be found doing yoga or frequenting the pilates studio or else just grabbing an afternoon nap - since starting the 6am shift with Nova, I have developed an obsession with getting a good night's sleep!!

I also love to cook and as you'd expect I'm a complete news junkie at heart.
