John's first guest in studio is Niamh Greene, author & mother to discuss the struggle every parent has in trying to prevent their children from using colourful language! - although the American Journal of Psychology tells us we are fighting a losing battle...
Jiliian Ennis O'Boyle joins John in studio to talk about what happened to her on a particular busy day in her shop she owned. It happend completely out of the blue & its impact would change her life dramatically. Jillian is also joined by her husband Fergus O'Boyle.
As Jillian mentioned she is doing the Flora Women's Mini-Marathon (10km) on 2nd June in aid of the Irish Heart and Stroke Foundation. To make a donation go to www.mycharity.ie/event/jillianennisoboylegmailcom

When the censuses of 1901 & 1911 were made available online - there was a huge response from people who wanted to research their family tree. Now you can go back even farther, because later today findmypast & the National Archive will release over six hundred thousand records from nineteenth century censuses. In studio with John is Brian Donovan Director of findmypast Ireland.
