Tricia in Germany and Gertrude discuss the continuing fallout from the Anglo tapes.

Damien was shocked by the levels of underage drinking he witnessed in Temple Bar last Saturday.

Josephine's son has wanted to be a doctor since he was 6-years-old.  He did his Leaving Cert and HPAT exam this year.  While he's expected to do very well in his Leaving Cert he's already received his HPAT results and got nowhere near what he needs.  He won't get into medicine.

Bad Language and the Anglo Tapes

Bad Language and the Anglo Tapes

President Higgens claims that the Anglo tapes “are not the voices of the people of Ireland” but are we just a country in denial? Are we a country of foul-mouths? Bad language has become a part of our normal day to day conversation.

Anti-Social Behaviour

Anti-Social Behaviour

Damien was surprised at the amount of public drunkeness he saw in Dublin, particularly among young people. Damien was also unhappy about how the guards responded to his complaint.

Health Professions Admissions Test

Health Professions Admissions Test

Joe discusses some personal issues and difficulties for students doing their leaving cert and hoping to get into Medicine. The Health Professions Admissions Test (HPAT) is a university admissions test. It is currently used by all universities in Ireland for admissions to medicine courses.

Should the HPAT be abandoned? Is it a fair assessment of a students ability? Sharon phoned to explain how she had to leave Ireland and move to Slovakia to follow her dream to study medicine.
