As another rise in private health insurance is on the horizon Sophie has just one question - what is the plan if all people leave voluntary Health Insurance in Ireland.   What will the impact be on the public health system.   She has given up her private health insurance because she can’t afford it anymore.

Kieran’s mother fell yesterday outside the church in Inchicore.   She is in her seventies.     She banged her head and hit the ground, dislocated her shoulder, broke her wrist.   A passerby called an ambulance.   It took 55 minutes to get an ambulance to her.  When they arrived at the hospital there were three ambulances waiting outside to get their trollies back.

Carmel wants to know why she has to pay property tax for a house she will not own in 2014, she will have sold her home by the end of 2013.

Mark Cardosi spoke to Joe.   Mark is an attorney in Ohio who was born in Sean Ross Abbey in 1957 and adopted by an American couple in 1958.     He says he is extremely thankful for his life that has included a wonderful wife and two beautiful daughters, two loving parents and three great siblings and an extremely rewarding career, which all started in 1957 in Sean Ross Abbey in Co. Tipperary.
