    Ali is originally from Syria. He came to Ireland as a refugee in 2005 and spent 6 years living in an Asylum Centre in Dublin. He tells Joe about what life was like for him as a refugee. 

    Mary thinks that we should be supporting the junior doctors in their strike action. She feels that our public services are being slowly diminished. Our young doctors should be valued.

    Aideen has been living with Pyrite in her home for 6 years. She is at the end of her tether. She doesn't see any end in sight, all she sees are the cracks getting bigger. She, and others like her, tell Joe what its like living with pyrite in your home.
