Jennifer is unemployed. Until Monday, when Storm Ophelia hit, she had a job as a childminder. But her boss asked her to take the kids out on the day of the storm to buy shoes. When Jennifer refused, and said she needed to leave early to beat the weather, she was fired.
Also on Ophelia Monday, Eamon's mother was told to go to a Dublin hospital for an operation. The family got a call at 5.30pm to bring her home - despite official warnings to stay at home. The hospital said that Eamon's mother's health insurance wouldn't cover an overnight stay.
Regina McCormack grew up in Lenaboy Castle, a home for children in Galway city centre, which was run by the Sisters of Mercy until the 1970s. As an 11-year-old, she was put in charge of minding very young children. One of these - an 18-month-old called Denis - got very ill and died. Finding Denis's body has haunted Regina ever since. Singer-songwriter Seamus Rutledge also grew up at Lenaboy. He told Joe how he felt his childhood was robbed and said that the home should be turned into a national Interpretative Centre for survivors of these institutions. Galway City Council has taken over the property and plans to turn it into a creative hub for young people. Historian Catherine Corless told Joe that, before this happens, the site should be investigated to ensure there are no children's remains there.
Bernadette and Mary were sitting next to each other on a train yesterday. They accidentally went home with each other's bags. By coincidence, they both called Liveline today and were reunited on air just before the show finished.
