Ireland’s low education spending was one of the topics on today’s Morning Show with Declan Meehan.

We discussed this with USI President Gary Redmond, who also gave reaction to the news that UCD and Trinity College have slipped down the world rankings of top universities.

On today’s show we also discussed the future of the Luas locally with Rail Procurement Agency, PRO Tom Manning, got reaction and review of the picks for US Ryder cup team and last nights Ireland match and spoke to Dr Justin Brophy, Vice Chairman of The Irish Association of Suicidology about National Suicide Prevention Day.
