Mooney Monday 8 July 2013
Mooney with Shay Byrne
On today's programme we'll be looking in on our kestrels who are about to make their bid for freedom. Is there life beyond earth or is it all pie in the sky? - We’ll be asking Cambridge University astronomer Dr Robin Catchpole is there anybody out there? And Brenda looks into summer jobs, a right of passage or a right pain.
Shay Byrne (pictured above) presenting Mooney this week.
With such good weather over the past weekend and with some parts of the country hitting 29 degrees, but we ask some particularly teenagers are slogging it out with their first summer jobs. Brenda was on the streets of Dublin speaking to people who have been through summer jobs, and Daragh Doyle, Community Manager with worldirish.com drops into studio to discuss it more with Shay.
Life in space?
The question has been asked if life exsists in space, in some shape or form - are we alone? Dr Robin Catchpole & Leo Enright join Shay in studio for this discussion.
