Pick of the Day
How to Be Good with Money, 8.30pm, RTÉ One
Here’s an episode that should resonate with a lot of people.
Eoin McGee meets Melissa Moroney from Nenagh, county Tipperary, who asks for advice on whether she should walk away from her home as it is in negative equity.
There are times when it make sense to borrow rather than save – like buying a house.
But what happens when the value of your home becomes less than the amount of your loan? Living in negative equity can be damaging - and not just to your finances.
First Dates Ireland, 9.30pm, RTÉ2
On this week’s show, Mateo (above) and the gang meet flirty 34-year-old Ginine from Kildare, who admits she is unable to hide her feelings as she meets garda Andrew, who is 31, from Mayo.
Elsewhere, student Sasha from Mayo is left stunned when Jordan from Limerick turns the conversation x-rated over dinner, and Eucilene from Brazil meets talkative barrister Joseph from Tipperary.
The Dog House, 8.00pm, Channel 4
Wood Green animal charity staff set about matching their homeless dogs with more prospective owners.
Eighty-five-year-old Pim thinks Dexter the beagle is as stubborn as Elizabeth, his wife of 62 years. It's possible that shy Jack Russell Roxy could prove a better match.
Chihuahuas Bear and Dave try to convince seven-year-old husky-fan Ollie that two little dogs are better than one.
