    TD Clinics

    There are fewer TDs doing walk-in clinics than was once the case, but Paddy O'Gorman found the clinics he attended to be busy.

    In Co Kildare, Emmet Stagg TD of the Labour Party holds a number of regular clinics every week in various parts of his constituency. Between 11 a m and 1 p m every Friday, he sits in Clane Co Kildare in Mazor's Bar. Paddy waited outside in the car park in the rain and spoke to whoever would speak to him about why they had just been in to see the TD.

    The cost of living might be foremost in the minds of most of us – but what about the cost of dying?  As with most things, if you die in Dublin, the cost of a funeral will far exceed the bill incurred for the same ceremony down the country.

    Money Editor with The Sunday Business Post, Emma Kennedy has been looking at funeral expenses...she joins me in studio now.

    So too does Funeral Director with Rom Massey & Sons, Keith Massey and our own Paddy O’Gorman who has been out and about talking to some people visiting graves in cemeteries.

    Paddy O’Gorman met up Niamh Hyland, whose nine year old son is in receipt of special education help within a mainstream school and joining Keelin in studio was Mary Byrne, from the National Council for Special Education to talk about the report and how special education for children could be improved upon.
