Discussion and debate with Joe Duffy


Frances was unhappy with the depiction of stars of the hit TV drama Love Hate in a religious painting of the Resurrection especially as it is Holy week. Have we lost all our morals. The artist Tom Byrne said he didn’t create the painting to be controversial. He is a big fan of the TV show.

Kelly Marie was on a Ryanair flight last Sunday from Luton airport to Dublin. She said a group of passengers boarded the flight drunk. Her aunt asked them to keep it down and they just responded with shouting drunken abuse at them. It was very intimidating. When they landed in Dublin Airport police boarded the plane and spoke to cabin crew before approaching one of th emen.
