    Emily is a model. She was out in Dublin City centre on Saturday night with friends when she was taunted and then attacked by another girl. She tells Damien about the unprovoked assault.

    Mary was enjoying a day at the beach on Friday. She became very worried when a man on the beach began taking her daughters photograph without her permission. 

    Siobhans son Sean is 20. He has Down Syndrome, severe intellection disability and autism. She relies on 4 nights respite care per month to give herself a break. Twice recently her respite has been withdrawn and she tells Damien about the devastating impact.

    Omar works for Ballybunion search and rescue. He tells Damien about the dangers of using inflatable boats or rings at the beach. He saved two children on Saturday and tells Damien his story.
