    Antoinette runs a small cafe in Dundalk, Co. Louth. Her bank recently closed her current account because she missed two payments. She has suffered through 5 rough years and she is now wondering why she bothered.

    Ger is an amputee. He tells Joe how he came to lost his leg due to a clot likely caused by smoking. 

    Winifred visited her doctor 4 months ago. He noticed a growth on her face and referred her on to a conultant in the public system. She was shocked when she was told she would never get an appointment because of the enormous backlog.
