Unpredictable, up to the minute and never too far from the heart of the matter, Ryan Tubridy hears what you have to say from 9.00 - 11.00 each week day on RTE 2fm
George Mordaunt was a poster boy of the Celtic Tiger. He had a thriving business, flashy cars and foreign property. But with the rise came the fall when his car business collapsed around him. Two years ago he wrote a book called Shepherd's Pie, which detailed with excruciating honest personal story of coping with recession and recovery.
Now he’s written a sequel to his own story called Back in the Driving Seat and it’s about second chances in business and in life. George joins Ryan in studio to discuss his story of continued survival, self education, creative thinking and ruthless execution.
On Monday Ryan read an email from a listener who is pregnant and she found out that she’s having a baby boy... and is really disappointed. She had always pictured herself having a daughter and she is worried that she won’t love the son as much.
Kieran got in touch to offer his opinions on the issue and his experience of becoming a father of a son with Down Syndrome.
Liz talks to Ryan about the hidden stress of raising two children with disabilities.
