    Discussion and debate with Joe Duffy

    Susan is from Florida and is currently holidaying in Ireland with her 89 year old mother, her sister and a close friend. They call themselves "the Golden Girls". On Saturday her bag was stolen and $4,000, amongst other things, was stolen. This is their 30th visit to Ireland and unfortunately the first time they have been robbed. She tells Joe her story.

    John thinks Arthur's Day is a disgrace. He is a taxi driver and says it is just another day that fuels anti-social behaviour. He describes last Saturday and how he saw a young woman squat and urinate in the middle of the street.

    Elizabeth is a carer. She tells Joe about the effect that recent pay cuts are having. She works for an agency who is employed by the HSE. She looks after an elderly man 6 nights a week. She drives 30 miles to see him, spends 45 minutes with him and drives 30 miles home. She gets paid a fee of €6.33 per night, plus a travel allowance of €8.
