Morning Show with Declan Meehan, Friday 19th November 2010

The topic on the tip of everyone’s tongue – the arrival of the IMF in Ireland – got the conversation started on today’s special edition of The Morning Show from Holland’s of Bray; local politicians joined Declan Meehan for a lively discussion on the nation’s biggest stories just after nine. East Coast’s own Head of News Gareth Farrell then brought us up to date on last night’s headline grabbing outburst by Pat Rabbitte and to round off all things financial our resident Money Doctor, John Diskin added a few wise words of advice on your mortgage repayments.

The tone brightened next as we began to hear from a host of local personalities on Bray’s thriving business and cultural communities, including Gerry Duffy the Headmaster of Presentation College Bray and Noreen Kelly from the town’s Chamber of Commerce. Shane Rowen dropped in to keep the mood upbeat with a toe-tapping, live musical performance afterwards and there were competitions, callers and even a check-up with our local vet Pete Wederburn.

The morning finally ended on a high note with a tune from singer Joel Blasket and a reminder that the official switching on ceremony for the Bray Christmas lights will take place tomorrow afternoon at 4pm.
