Registered in Ireland: My recent visit to Naked Truth, a show exploring the nude in Irish art, is unplanned. I duly postpone my trip to the coffee shop, dump my bag in a locker and poke my head around the exhibition room door. The walls are a rich blue, and the space moodily lit in a way that adds to the dreamy underwater feel. I end up spending longer here than at any art show for years. The deep blue running through the show is an almost exact match for the flat, calm sea in the first painting seen on entering, The Holy Well by William Orpen, which used to hang near the exit of the National Gallery alongside works by Jack B Yeats and Louis le Brocquy. I felt then that they deserved to be better placed, in out of the draught as it were, but it was a convenient place to catch them in few minutes of your lunch-break, as I sometimes did when I was a student.

AN Irish glamour model faces up to a year in a Thai jail after she was charged with making thousands from saucy pictures which promoted illegal gambling. Jessie Vard, 19, from Donegal, moved to Bangkok when she was a child and has amassed millions of fans since becoming a model. But she ended up in court after posing half-naked for a number of promotions for gambling sites which are banned in the country. In the sexy snaps, she can be seen holding up her iPhone which clearly displays a website where people can gamble. Some of the models earn the equivalent of tens of thousands of pounds a month for the racy adverts. But Thai authorities announced they would be cracking down on the promotions before and during the World Cup. Vard apologised publicly on behalf of the entire group of models who allegedly promoted the gambling sites.
