Health Staff Seek Weather Protocol
The big clean-up is continues across the country in the aftermath of Storm Emma. Today at cabinet, the focus will be on how those worst affected by the ravages of the bad weather could be compensated. Given the extent of the damageto many farms, roads, and businesses, the cost of the storm is likely to be significant.
Paul Bell SIPTU Health Division Organiser, Labour Party Leader, Brendan Howlin, and IFA President Joe Healy spoke to the programme this morning.
Women's Sporting Events
Irish people are more likely to attend a women’s sporting event, or watch it on TV, than their counterparts in the UK, but women are still far less likely than men to attend or watch. Mags D’Arcy, camogie All-Star, joins and Rob Hartnett, CEO of Sport for Business, joined Sean O'Rourke to look at the results of a recent survey by Liberty Insurance.
Dublin Water Supply
We have received lots of calls and texts in relation to the water supply in Dublin and elsewhere this morning.
Irish Water had originally said there would be pressure reduction between 7pm last night, and 7am this morning. They are saying now that it might take some time for pressure to come back to some areas, perhaps around lunch time.
Alan Bailey, the Manager of the Capuchin Day Centre for the homeless in Dublin city centre, joined Sean O'Rourke on the line this morning.
Former Scotland Rugby International

Doddie Weir joined Sean O'Rourke on the line this morning to discuss his time playing rugby, his life afterwards, and Scotland's chances against Ireland in the Six Nations on Saturday.
