    Wedding Proposals

    If you were watching PJ Gallagher on tv recently you would be forgiven for thinking his wedding proposal to his girlfriend was less than impresssive! If you identify with that & find it difficult to come up with a romantic & original way to propose, Neil's guest on the line Sam Sheppard, may be able to help you.

    Listen

    Mindfulness follow-up

    At the beginning of the year we spoke to Tony Bates about his quest to live his life more mindfully in 2013. Many of you were captivated & inspired by Tony's story & a workshop on mindfullness was organised with Tony & a few or our listeners. Joining Neil in studio this morning is Tony Bates with one of his students, Grainne Bruce.

    For further information on Tony's organisation to to link below www.headstrong.ie

    Treasurer of Victoria, Michael O'Brien

    While Australia has become the focus for many young Irish people over the past few years as they leave in search of work, Neil is now joined this morning by an Irish man who has scaled the political ladder over there & is now looking after the finances of the state of Victoria in Australia. On the line to Neil, is Michael O'Brien, Treasurer of Victoria, to tell us about his work & Irish connections!
