Top o' the morning to all our Irish readers. We'll be celebrating St Patrick's Day later with a pint of Guinness, a dish of colcannon, and a drop of Bushmills. Monaco-Ireland Arts Society are performing extracts of Eugene O'Neill's work next week, but so far we've seen no evidence of special events at local bars, not even the new Trinity "Irish" Bar.

Monaco Hebdo carries an interview with recently appointed Isabelle Berro-Amadei, Counselor-Minister for Foreign Relations and Cooperation. She talks about her role in general, and specifically the Principality's response to the invasion of Ukraine.

There's also a Q&A with Minister of State Pierre Dartout regarding Monaco's economic links with Russia. We might see a reduction in the number of Russian tourists this year, and probably an increas in energy prices.

As for AS Monaco's Dmitry Rybolovlev, last week he announced he'd be making donations to support the Red Cross's humanitarian aid efforts.

Observateur de Monaco last week printed photos of the future Cafe de Paris. Latin American chain Amazonico will take on the rooftop restaurant, and a night club is to replace the Salon Bellevue. There are also plans for designer/luxury boutiques along the allee Francois-Blanc.

A new outlet has opened in the pedestrian tunnel towards Fontvieille from the railway station. Ajoya is open 6:30 to 22:00, serving coffee, apero platters and Monaco brand food and drinks.

A competition is calling on school children in Monaco to take photos on the theme "Albert 1er, le Prince savant". Rules can be found on the AMOPA Section de Monaco website, and entries should be in by 1 May.

Young Monegasque musicians and Monaco-based students are also needed as support acts for the MC Summer Concert. Individuals or groups, aged 13-26, should email mcsummerconcert[at] before 17 April to request a dossier. They'll need to submit a video and a written proposal.

And finally...

It may be dull and cold, but there's not been enough rain over winter, so go easy on watering your plants.

What's in the diary...

Thursday: UEFA match.
Friday: Bach organ music.
Saturday: Young musicians.
Sunday: Football.
