The Morning Show with Declan Meehan
We heard from Irish Independent journalist Niall O Connor on the departure from Fianna Fáil of Averil Power and were joined by Councillor Pat Casey about it too. Doctor Annie Donna, president of IADT and board member of the Irish Film Board spoke about her memory of Bill O Herlihy and his commitment to the the Irish film industry. Author Martina Reilly spoke to Declan about her book ‘That Day In June' and our business editor Vincent Wall joined us about the sale of Aer Lingus.
Michelle Mc Mullen spoke to Declan following her trip to El Salvador Amnesty International is trying to free women who've been locked up for having miscarriages in their country. Michelle examined how their fight overlaps with calls to change Ireland's own abortion laws and we had live music in studio from Colm Mac Con Iomaire.
