Dublin: 5 °C Thursday 2 December, 2021

The week in photos

Some of the week’s biggest stories in pictures.

THIS WEEK THE government finally admitted that Ireland would have to enter discussions for financial help; the IMF descended on Dublin; Pat Rabbitte aimed for the Fianna Fáil jugular on Prime Time… and, unable to take much more, some of us hid under a warm blanket of escapism by admiring Kate Middleton’s dress.

This is the week that was, in pictures:
