    Brian decided to check his water meter in August. He was shocked to discover that in 1 hour he had used 600 litres of water. It was clear he had a leak. He says Irish Water were very efficient but he was left to pay to fix the leak. John owns a business in Dawson Street. For 10 days water flooded in through the basement of his building and he could not a get an answer from Irish Water. He says he did their job for them.

    Christina Gallagher and the House of Prayer was in the news again recently. Eamon is a strong advocate of Christina Gallagher and talks to Joe about how he has supported the House of Prayer since it was opened 21 years ago.

    Verona Murphy talked to us last week. After the conversation Verona says that truck drivers around the country got in touch to offer their support. The result was a protest that ran from 5 o'clock to 9 o'clock this morning. She tells Joe how it happened.

    Joe talks to some business owners about their great Fiver Friday offers.
