    Following Ireland's defeat to Scotland in the RBS 6 Nations at the weekend there have been some questions as to Declan Kidney's time as Manager. Commentator George Hook has said that perhaps the time has come for Declan Kidney to resign - saying that he has taken Ireland as far as he can. What do you think of this? Are we too quick to talk of resignations when teams lose? Today we got your views on the topic

    Women's aid have called for stalking to be made a specific criminal offence because a growing number of young women are being terrorised via texts and social media sites. Women's Aid says current legislation is not strong enough and young women are being left "unprotected and vulnerable to abuse" as stalking and cyber-stalking is not explicitly addressed in law. Margaret Martin is Director of Women's Aid and she spoke to Colm about their growing concern at social media stalking, and their aims to protect those who are in the 'dating scene'. Anyone concerned about their boyfriend's actions can answer a series of questions on www.2in2u.ie or call the Women's Aid helpline on 1800 341 900.

    Grant Thornton.jpg

    Our new initiative 'What's You Big Idea' is well and truly underway - and we have received an amazing response thus far with lots of brilliant ideas. Pat Burke; a partner with Grant Thornton was in studio to talk about the kind of work that Grant Thornton do in advising business and why they are getting involved in this initiative. Also on the line were two men with big ideas; firstly Matt with his idea for a range of flavoured rape seed oils, and then Paul was on to tell us about his idea for a digitised family crest map of Ireland which can be personalised and potentially sold to the wide Diaspora during The Gathering and the upcoming centenary of the 1916 proclamation. You can have a look at the 'Irish Family Name Poster - Mc Court Publishing' page on Facebook to view Paul's poster. And if you would like to get involved you can tell us your big idea by filling out our application form and clicking on the 'What's Your Big Idea' banner at the top of the page
