Discussion and debate with Damien O'Reilly


Colin tells Damien O'Reilly he's retiring next week and both he and his wife are emigrating to Canada at the end of the month to be with their three sons and grandchildren.

Joseph's wife got a €60 fine for using her phone while driving which was due on April 1st.  The post was delayed over Easter and they now face paying an extra €30 fine.

Artist Kevin Sharkey tells Damien his studio window in Temple Bar has been smashed for the second time in 3 months. 

More callers tell Damien about family members donating their bodies to science.
