Short news items about Irish law, events and changes to the Irish Law site are posted on the IrishLaw Updates blog.
You can feed new IrishLaw Updates blog items to your desktop using a news reader.
There are numerous free news readers available - see for example
Personally I use RSS Reader for Windows and Technorati and/or Bloglines online.
Once you have installed the newsreader you then customise it to include news services (or 'feeds') which you wish to receive to your desktop.
For example, with RSS Reader, the help page gives instructions as follows:
"How do I add Rss feed channels?
Look for this or RSS feed pictograms in news pages of websites, for example Yahoo! news.
the mouse arrow on one of the above pictograms (in the website you found) and
click the right mouse button, then choose "Copy Shortcut".
Start RssReader and go to add(+) channel/feed and then paste (click right mouse button) the url and press ok. Add as many feeds to this free RSS reader as you want and us it as free news aggregator."
For IrishLaw Updates you will find the relevant button on the home page or the Blog page.
