The inclusion of specially trained dogs in searches for missing people could make all the difference to the outcome. That's according to Kathryn's next guest, Mick McCarthy, from Irish Search Dogs on the line this morning.
Is the World Cup good for our mental health, will we all be feeling a little bit better at the end of the competition, even though Ireland is not competing? Well Kathyn's next guest thinks so, Paul Gaffney, clinical psychologist is in studio this morning & he has written a book titled 'On the Ball? how football can affect your mental health.'
