In 1951 a young curate was assigned to a Parish on the edge of the Atlantic, the village of Glencolumbkille in Co Donegal. It was a poor Parish with no industry, no electricity and no running water. Over the next thirty years that young priest embarked on a cultural and economic revival, transforming his parish and starting a series of industries which are still providing jobs today...that young curate was Fr James McDyer. Valerie Cox has been to Glencolumbkille to see his legacy.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0724/632779-today-with-sean-o-rourke-thursday-24-july-2014/?clipid=1636471

Later this month a six bed palliative care unit will open in St Luke’s hospital in Kilkenny to cater for patients in both Kilkenny and Carlow. There is huge significance in the development of this unit as it is a project undertaken by the Susie Long Hospice Fund. Valerie Cox visited the hospital yesterday.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0604/621488-today-with-sean-o-rourke-wednesday-4-june-2014/?clipid=1592596
The lead story on the Irish Examiner this morning says there has been an alarming rise in the number of children abusing their parents, with the majority suffering in silence because of shame and guilt. One in seven calls made to Parentline last year were from parents who said they had been abused by their children. And, coincidently, abuse of an elderly parent was one of the cases before the Family Law courts in Dolphin House in Dublin last Friday. Valerie Cox was there.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0602/621062-today-with-sean-o-rourke-monday-2-june-2014/?clipid=1590874
