Tuesday 15th December The Morning Show with Declan Meehan

Tuesday 15th December The Morning Show with Declan Meehan 10- 11am Declan reviewed the top stories in today’s papers before moving to a chat with Gerry Byrne, Ireland’s top aviation journalist. They discussed amazing story of the chilli peppers that set off an alarm on an Air France plane, causing an emergency landing. Eamon Timmins from Age Action Ireland was on to talk about how to keep safe and warm this Christmas, and to look in on the neighbours this time of year. Helen Walsh dropped in to studio to give Declan some tips on health and fitness for the holiday season. Independent TD Stephen Donnelly called in to update Declan on the Irish Water situation and his attempt to table motions in the Dail on privatisation. Stephen also chatted about the prospect of a new political group emerging before the next election. 11am-midday Tech wizard Damien Mulley gave Declan a run-down on all the best Christmas gifts for the tekkies in your life. Breaking news from Australia was covered by Irish DJ based in Oz talking about the siege in the financial district of Sydney where hostages are being held by what appear to be Islamic terrorists. Susan Walsh dropped in for a visit from nearby Dubray Books who are celebrating their 40th birthday soon. Susan reviewed her favourite recommendations for books that will keep everyone happy over Christmas. Last up was new Indie-Folk band The Last of The Bar Stools – they are London-based, but one of their number is local boy Mark Kavanagh from Glencree in Enniskerry. They played a song live and we also heard a clip from their latest single “Don’t Let the Bad Guys Win”.
