Gerry is a keen runner and fitness enthusiast. He often runs topless particularly in the very warm weather. Last night he ran by a couple of women who called him disgusting for running topless, he was very hurt by their remarks. He wants to know if other topless runners encounter this?

Mary and her husband took out a mortgage in 2008. They were forced to restructure when Mary became ill, but managed to avoid getting into arrears. The bank are now offering them a 60:40 split. So when they reach the age of 71 they will owe the bank €84,000. They have refused and she is very stressed at the prospect of losing her home.

Michelle is a postmistress in rural Ireland. Her post office was recently held up at gun point for the second time in 3 months. It happened a third time some months ago. If if happens again she will seriously consider shutting up shop. She tells Philip how the incident has left her badly shaken.
