    Fiver Friday Returns on Friday October 24th

    Joe Duffy’s Liveline on RTÉ Radio 1 came up with a simple but effective idea to help businesses across the country in 2011. Fiver Friday asked people to spend an extra €5 with a local business, retailer or supplier in an effort to boost turnover and save jobs. Click here for  details...

    Liveline Friday 4 April 2014

    To today's Liveline, Helena and Gerry O'Connor spoke to Joe about the brutal murder of their 22 year old son. Gavin was a talented musician who had performed at a music festival in Carrickmacross and in the early hours of the morning settled down to sleep in the back of his car. The car was stolen by Conor McClelland who stole his keys, bludgeoned Gavin to death and ran him over. Helena and Gavin spoke about their immense pain, the court case and eventual conviction of Conor McClelland - and also the lack of interest in the case with the national media.

    We also spoke to Irene who called from her car at Shangannagh cemetary where she had been visiting the grave of her son. He died by suicide and she said listening to Helena and Gerry helped her - and she said she would think of them every time she was at the grave.

    On to another topic, Brendan and Donal had both been stung by an offer they just couldn't refuse. They had both inadvertantly signing up for a deal with takes €12 out of your account every month.

    We ended the programme with psychothearpist Jean who talked aboutt he process of grief - and how tears are a form of healing. Don't stop them from falling, she said.
