Today With Sean O Rourke Thursday 14 August 2014
A large convoy of trucks carrying Russian aid is reported to be heading towards the border with Ukraine this morning.
The trucks appeared to be on the road to Rostov, the Russian city near rebel-held areas of eastern Ukraine but it is not clear if the convoy will be allowed cross into Ukraine. It’s estimated over 2,000 people have been killed since mid-april with many civilians caught up in the conflict between rebels and Ukrainian forces.
Joining Keelin was Edward Lucas journalist and author of 'The New Cold War: Putin's Threat to Russia and the West'.
Retirement is a milestone in any person’s life but while many look forward to what are traditionally known as their Golden Years, others struggle with the loss of social interaction and routine in their lives.
So, what can you do to ensure a positive retirement? Keelin was joined by Professor Moira O’Brien, osteoporosis consultant who still has a full work schedule at the age of 80, and by recently retired businessman, Brian O’Neill.
