Litter in Ireland was on the agenda today. The state in which Buttevant in Co. Cork was left in the aftermath of yesterday's Cahirmee horse fair appalled Dan as he drove some Italians through. Sean is a volunteer on Laytown beach and they have come across up to 40 tyres being dumped weekly. Alec remembered fair days gone by in Ballymahon. Catherine was not impressed with the behaviour with students on the beach in Connemara, while Diane was in hilarious form collecting duvet covers dumped in Co. Cork! Simon, Kevin, Micheal and Hugh brought us the latest from Buttevant.
Ireland post Garth Brooks! Hotel owner Paul has been lambasted after saying on his Facebook page that Garth Brooks was definitely performing at Croke Park. Susie bought 12 tickets on eBay and is out €1661 as a result. James thinks there are bigger problems in the country to worry about.
Christine was annoyed that she still has her husband's PPS number despite the talk about new ones being issued.
John Mollin spent two weeks in prison by refusing to have his herd tested for TB in the 1980s. Dr Liam Joyce argued that badgers do not pass TB to cattle.
