The Morning Show with Declan Meehan

The suggestion that the parishioners in Ferns contribute to help pay compensation to Victims of clerical abuse in the diocese was just one of the topics covered on today’s Morning Show with Declan Meehan. We heard angry reaction from Child Protection Expert, journalist and author Shane Dunphy.

On today’s Morning Show we discussed the proposed protection of Greystones sporting grounds, we heard reaction to yesterday’s decision to ban headshop substances from emergency medicine consultant, Dr Chris Luke and local Green Party Councillor Ciaran O’ Brien commented on cabinet reshuffle rumours and how they may effect the Green Parlimentary Party.

The show also featured a discussion on current housing problems. Declan heard details from FF TD Charlie O’ Connor on a recent report that suggests among other things, that the Moratoreum on house repossessions is extended to help people that face losing their homes, we also discussed the mortgage interest supplement and criteria needed to be eligible with Aoife Walsh, communications officer, Respond Housing Charity.
