Twitter Thursday time on "The Spin Home"

Time to talk the lighter side of Twitter on "The Spin Home" . Ollie was joined by Sean Defoe to cast an eye over the events of the week. On this week's agenda...

Garth Brooks.

Garth Brooks plays a sold out Croke Park. Lots of great reports and reactions from concert goers. Garth himself found time for a pub sing song in Dingle among other places.

Cruise Ship Life.

For many cruise lovers, living on a ship permanently is a long-held, albeit extremely unrealistic, dream.
Extended world cruises have become more popular and various luxury residences at sea have entered the market in recent years.
However, such experiences tend to come with an incredibly high price,ย  that many ardent cruise fans simply can't afford to get on board.
But a new "residential community at sea" named Storylines is hoping to change that by offering a "more affordable" opportunity. Launching in 2025, Storylines is offering fully furnished one-to-four-bedroom residences, along with studios and two-story penthouses, with prices starting at $500,000 and rising to $8 million.

The Queen.

Queen Elizabeth IIโ€™s death was announced to Buckingham Palace beesย  in a bizarre tradition which dates back centuries.

The royal housekeeper John Chapple revealed that he went to the palace and Clarence House to carry out the ritual.

The palace hives have also been told thatย  King Charles III is their new master after Britainโ€™s longest-serving monarch breathed her last at Balmoral last week.

The 79-year-old housekeeper said โ€œIt is traditional when someone dies that you go to the hives and say a little prayer and put a black ribbon on the hive.

โ€œYou knock on each hive and say, โ€˜The mistress is dead, but don't you go. Your master will be a good master to you.โ€™ Sean looked at other strange happenings on foot of the Queen's death.
