Last year, barman Wesley Wilder stepped in to protect a woman who was being harassed. He was hit with a single blow by one of the harassers. Wesley can’t remember anything from the next two months of his life. At one point, his family was told to say their goodbyes. When he woke up, Wesley couldn't see or speak. He spoke to Joe about how he felt after his attacker was jailed this week.
Siobhan is addicted to painkillers. At the age of 60, she says that she finds this embarrassing. Siobhan had previously been addicted to codeine but got off that. Then her back started at her, and she ended up on Lyrica. Keith rang in and spoke to Siobhan about his own pain killer addiction. He was on as much as 60 Solpadeine per day. Keith says that he used to forge prescriptions and was once arrested for it. Noel told Joe that he was hooked for years and, at times, couldn’t even hold a pen.
With the news that the Dublin and Monaghan bombings had been left out of the Junior Cycle history text book, callers rang Joe to talk about other atrocities from the Troubles that have been forgotten by history.
