    Tony's house alarm went off last week. His neighbours went to investigate and in the process scared off a would-be burglar. He wants to urge people to check on their neighbours properties if they hear the alarm going off.

    James has worked with the St Vincent de Paul for 54 years. He describes the circumstances of people he has met. He says the difficulties people are now facing are the worst that he has ever seen. He thought Enda Kenny's state of the nation address last night was ridiculous.

    Emer processes payments for her clients, who are small business owners. She tells Joe about the new SEPA payment system. The system will not allow employers pay employees on Friday the 27th December. Its going to cause problems for retailers. She explains the situation to Joe.

    Kathleen Casey has 3 children living in Australia. She misses them terribly but thanks god every day that they are healthy and happy. Kate Thompsons daughter recently finished her Diploma in Education in Perth. She was offered a job as a primary school teacher the next week. She describes her as a great loss to Ireland.

    On Friday 13th Eamon McGrath got some good news. He passed his SPSV test on the 7th attempt. He tells Joe how he finally got over the line.
