Send us an email to or write to us at: LITTLE LIVELINE RTÉ Radio Centre Donnybrook Dublin 4. 

As always, nothing is guaranteed, but we will do our best to feature as many reviewers as possible in the show.

On Wednesday 23rd December, we'll be broadcasting our annual Self Published Books Programme. If you've published a book yourself this year, please SEND US A COPY OF THE BOOK to the address below and remember to include your contact details.

We will do our very best to cover as many authors and titles as possible on the day.

Discussion and debate with Joe Duffy.

"Sinfulness" and Suicide

Columnist Brendan O'Regan talks to Joe and asks if you define sin as an action that offends God, then surely suicide is a sin? Anne who lost her son to suicide, disagrees with Brendan. Anne was horrified that suicide would be deemed a sin.
