    Good & Bad Advice

    Well, over the last six months, I’ve been the recipient of plenty of advice, most of it sound I hasten to add, some of which I hadn’t heard before, but I think I should be the wiser for it all.
    This got me thinking about the advice people get – good and bad, and ugly & joining me in studio this morning are Ted Walsh, John Connolly & Jaqui Carroll but first a little report from Drogheda where I asked people what they had to say about advice recently.
