Morning Show with Declan Meehan, Friday 11th March 2011

Friday 11th March
The Morning Show with Declan Meehan

The shocking earthquake in Japan and the continuing threat to human life dominated the conversation on today’s edition of the Morning Show with Declan Meehan. Through out the programme we were kept up to date with all the latest news and expert analysis, while we heard how the seismic activity in the Pacific Ocean was even picked up in one County Wicklow school. The horrific events took a personal twist when local T.D. Andrew Doyle spoke of his relief at the moment he learned that his brother who lives in Japan is safe and well.

Of course we couldn’t speak to Wicklow’s newly elected T.D. without asking his opinion on Enda Kenny’s choice of Ministers. Billy Timmins T.D. also joined his Fine Gael party colleague to talk about the Garden County’s lack of ministerial positions and the controversy continued later on when we heard from a resident on the Florence Road in Bray who is protesting at the town council’s decision to cut down the mature trees on his street.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom this morning however our resident physiotherapist Avril Barrett had some top tips for mum’s expecting a happy event and one lucky listener won a pair of tickets to The Haunted in Dublin’s Gaiety Theatre featuring Charlie Clements from Eastenders.
