The Morning Show with Declan Meehan, Monday 31st May

Monday 31st May
The Morning Show with Declan Meehan

Declan Meehan was back in the hot seat and straight down to business on today’s Morning Show. The discussion kicked off with a report on the fate of the Irish passengers caught in the raid on the Palestinian aid flotilla.

The proposed cuts to the One Parent Family Payment scheme provoked a strong reaction from our listeners next when we heard from the Director of ‘One Family’, Karen Kiernan. Eugene Murray from the Irish Hospice Foundation then spoke to Declan about a new bill on end of life care, and Bray student Maeve Galvin told us all about her upcoming trip to Nigeria to promote AIDS awareness. Luckily however Shay Healy, Gareth Farrell and Mick Lynch were soon on hand to lighten the mood in the studio, with their take on Ireland’s Eurovision flop.

Finally, author and professional ‘Cork Man’ Mark Hayes dropped into East Coast to share tales of his hilarious adventures in LA, while Carol Coffey gave us a sneak preview of her latest book, ‘The Penance Room’.
