A man we talk about on this programme with alarming frequency is Michael O'Leary - almost everyone has a RyanAir story, but very few have as many as our first guest, Paul Kilduff. Paul's just written a book called Ruinair, and it retails at just one cent - but when you add on the taxes and charges then it's 12.99! He gives us his thoughts on the airline people love and hate in equal measure... For more information about the book, click here.
GLEN HANSARD'S OSCAR WIN
It's been one heck of a week for one particular Mammy and she's here today with the statue that has caused such excitement and pride. Derek and co are joined by Catherine Hansard, mother of Oscar-winner Glen, complete with Oscar himself! For photos, click here.
CELEBRATING MOTHER'S DAY IN THE MOUNTAINS
Whilst Catherine was celebrating Mother's Day yesterday with her son's Oscar, there were also no such glamourous shenanigans for our Waterford colleague, RTÉ radio producer Jacqui Corcoran. While the rest of the mammies of Ireland were having a lie-in, mum-of-three Jacqui was braving the elements on the Comeragh Mountains with Michael Whelan's company Mountainzone. She joins us today from the Waterford studios to tell us how she got on...
