Discussion and debate with Joe Duffy
On today’s programme we spoke to three people with opinions on the Central Remedial Clinic.
Among those joining the conversation was Hazel who has been raising money for her son’s special school for ten years. Earlier this year, they raised €10,000 but €7,500 was handed over to the CRC. She wants to know where exactly that money went.
We also spoke to Joseph Hone. He is the Irishman whose younger brother, called Camillus, was adopted by PL Travers, the author of Mary Poppins. She left behind the boy’s twin. Joseph told us of the story of this boy’s life with his adoptive mother. She kept his adoption a secret from him until one day there was a knock on the door – Camillus answered it to another young man, saying ‘I am your twin’.
We also highlighted some of the Fiver Friday offers – a guided tour around Strokestown House, Co Roscommon, a concert for the High Kings at the Button Factory in Dublin and art on St Stephen’s Green.
