    Discussion and debate with Joe Duffy

    More callers talk to Joe about their experiences with the debilitating condition Ehlers–Danlos syndrome (EDS).

    David Duffy of Duffy's circus talks about the reduction in grants to circus from the Arts Council.

    Ann Walker has closed her wedding dress business due to the high cost of rent and rates. She is now looking for a pop-up shop to sell off her stock.

    Lack of expert knowledge about the condition and no government funding for treatment is a huge problem for those suffering with EDS

    Unaffordable rent & rates drove Ann out of business; she's now looking for a pop-up shop premises to sell off wedding dresses


    Attitudes to the circus

    David Duffy of Duffy's Circus explains why he feels the Arts Coucil don't seem to rate circuses too highly when it comes to grants
