Mo­ment of the week Grim re­minder

The Irish Times - Weekend Review - - ARTS & BOOKS -

Even be­fore Morn­ing Ire­land car­ries the full news of the Manch­ester at­tack, there has been an omi­nous har­bin­ger of the ter­ri­ble de­tails to come on Ris­ing Time ( RTÉ Ra­dio 1, week­days). As ca­su­alty fig­ures fil­ter through, a som­bre Shay Byrne talks to sports cor­re­spon­dent Dar­ren Fre­hill, who tells how at the week­end he had brought his two young daugh­ters to the Dublin con­cert by Ari­ana Grande, the singer whose show was at­tacked in Manch­ester. It’s a jolt­ing re­minder of the prox­im­ity of such vi­o­lence, not to men­tion its ran­dom­ness.
