• Caroline Rowland spoke to us from the centre of the action in the Olympic village in London. She is directing the official movie of the games, and it features only 12 atheletes, including Katie Taylor. News broke today that the Church of Ireland had been successful in the bid to become patrons of the new secondary school in Greystones and we spoke on the phone to Amy Mulvihill of Educate Together, whose bid was unsuccessful. In studio we had Gareth Fennell, parent and Reverend David Mongavin of Greystones who were talking about the successful bid by the Church of Ireland and their hopes for the new school. Sergeant John Fitzpatrick called in to talk about an attempted bag snatch at the Bray Summerfest and then in studio we had young singer-songwriter Rory Quinn perform one of his songs and chat about his upcoming fundraising gig in the Horse and Hound, Delgany.
