    This week, the news was dominated by yet another Irish abortion controversy as it emerged that a woman had delivered a baby by Caesarian section, having requested an abortion under the Protection of Life During Pregnancy Act. In international news, James Foley an American photojournalist was beheaded by ISIS militants. And yesterday, we heard the sad news that former Taoiseach Albert Reynolds had died at the age of 81 after a long illness.

    Mother & Baby Homes

    Mother & Baby Homes

    The discovery of almost 800 children’s bodies in the grounds of a mother and baby home in Tuam has reopened the pain of the many instances of institutional abuse in our past. But a new question has emerged alongside this story – is there a wider blame to be laid outside of the religious institutions and at the foot of Irish society itself? Sean was joined in studio by Diarmaid Ferriter, UCD Professor and historian, and by Fr Vincent Twomey, Divine Word Missionary Priest, author and theologian.

    The Gathering

    The week was consumed by the state visit of President Michael D Higgins to the UK, declared by everybody or almost everybody at least to have been a wonderful success...but it was business as usual at home, with the Public Accounts Committee continuing its investigations into Rehab and the terms of reference set for the inquiry into the Garda tapes...there was tragedy too of course with the death of 25 year old, Peaches Geldof. For a look back at the events of the week, Sean was joined in studio by Mick Clifford, Columnist with The Irish Examiner; journalist and Author, ...

    A Century of Irish Dance

    A Century of Irish Dance

    On this St. Patrick’s weekend, our focus is on the history of an integral part of our culture – dancing.   In the decades after Independence, where and how we danced was of huge concern to the Gaelic League, the State and the Catholic Church. What was to emerge gives us a fascinating insight into attitudes to sex, sensuality and sin in Irish society.  Programme guests: Barbara O’Connor, author of recently published The Irish, Dancing – cultural, politics and identities, 1900 to 2000 .   Deirdre Mulrooney, author of “Irish Moves – an illustrated history of Dance and Physical Theatre in Ireland. Diarmaid ...
