    What we want the listener to talk about and what the listeners want to talk about, they decide! Colm Hayes Show weekdays, 11am-1pm


    Personal Safety

    There have been many stories in the papers this week about self-defence and protecting ourselves. On Monday Gardai urged women
    not to invite men into their homes that they do not know – following an attack on a woman who thought she was doing a job interview in her own home but was attacked by her would-be employer. Another story relates to Dail ushers being trained in Jiu-Jitsu in order to protect TDs, and there ia a piece in The Irish Times talks about how many children are taking up martial arts learning to help improve their confidence. Colm also mentioned how he knows a former member of the defence forces who will not walk anywhere on his own at night because he was once attacked. What do you think? Has our society become more aggressive? Are you taking measures to protect yourself? Colm spoke to many listeners about issues of personal safety and how they protect themselves


    What's Your Big Idea

    Today we looked at getting that all important funding from the bank. John Irwin is from AIB and he spoke about the best approach to take with the bank, from how to prepare, to the mistakes that people most often make. John mentioned the website www.smallbusinessfinance.ie and you can also have a look at www.aib.ie/business.

    Also Dennis McCarthy told us how things have been developing with his dehydrated crisps – Colm had a sample in studio and did the taste test.
