Policing on the cheap, rats in our Garda stations, Whistle-blowers, drunks, being unable to chase criminals in their souped up cars and a no-show by the Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter. That was just some of the drama at the Annual Conference of the Association of Garda Sergeants and Inspectors which opened in Killarney Co Kerry yesterday afternoon. Our reporter Valerie Cox joined Sean from Killarney as well as John Jacob, Deputy General Secretary of the Association.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0415/608990-today-with-sean-o-rourke-tuesday-15-april-2014/?clipid=1534748
Thirty years ago today the body of a newborn infant was found by a local farmer on a beach in Cahirciveen in Co Kerry. A short time afterwards the body of another newborn was found in a field behind the Hayes farm in Abbeydorney. This led to the Tribunal of Enquiry into the Kerry Babies. Valerie Cox was in Kerry to find out more.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0414/608750-today-with-sean-o-rourke-monday-14-april-2014/?clipid=1533867
Yesterday President Michael D Higgins visited University College London hospital to celebrate the work of Irish medical staff who trained and worked in the UK over the many decades. Many of those people came back to Ireland with their nursing skills and Valerie Cox has been talking to some of them about how different life was when they chose that career.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0410/607974-today-with-sean-o-rourke-thursday-10-april-2014/?clipid=1530644
It's the last great taboo - talking about our own demise. But now a series of pop-up cafes has been opening in the UK where people chat about death over a cup of tea. Valerie Cox spent last Saturday afternoon in a funeral parlour in Chester eating cake, drinking tea and discussing death.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0331/605622-today-with-sean-o-rourke-monday-31-march-2014/?clipid=1521966
How do we care for our loved ones with dementia? What choices are available to them? This morning a Conference opens at the University of Limerick to discuss the palliative care needs of people with dementia. Sean was joined by Valerie Cox who has been speaking to some of the participants.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0326/604644-today-with-sean-o-rourke-wednesday-26-march-2014/?clipid=1518212
We return this morning to the Family Courts where the in-camera rule was lifted for the first time in January. This means that reporters can attend the courts so that there is a greater understanding of how the law is administered. There are, of course, very strict reporting conditions, no-one involved in the cases can be identified. Valerie Cox went to Dolphin House in Dublin where in Court 47, the main issue on Friday last was maintenance.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0324/604190-today-with-sean-o-rourke-monday-24-march-2014/?clipid=1516653
This morning we return to Co Donegal where the people are fighting back against a series of vicious attacks on older people living in the community. Yesterday Valerie Cox reported on the efforts of people living in the Churchill area and this morning she moves to Manorcunningham, where a public meeting attracted around one thousand five hundred people.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0312/601727-today-with-sean-o-rourke-wednesday-12-march-2014/?clipid=1506715
Since Christmas there have been twenty attacks on elderly people living in isolated areas of Co Donegal but now the people of the county are fighting back with public meetings, night patrols, Neighbourhood Watch and a local Text Alert system. Valerie Cox has been to one of those meetings in the village of Churchill outside Letterkenny and she joins me now.http://www.rte.ie/radio1/today-with-sean-o-rourke/programmes/2014/0310/601227-today-with-sean-o-rourke-monday-10-march-2014/?clipid=1504841
