Thirty Three Good Men - John Weafer and Fr. Brian D'Arcy on Being a Priest in Modern Ireland

Ray has been reading a very interesting book called Thirty Three Good Men - celibacy obedience and identity – a study of diocesan priests in Ireland from 1960 til 2010. It’s written and researched by John Weefer,  himself a former seminarian he speaks to Ray and he is also joined by Fr. Brian D'Arcy a man who’s been a priest for 46 years!

Treating Bridget

Ray spoke to Bridget Redmond from Walkinstown in Dublin, earlier in month when she was honoured by President Michael D Higgins for her work as a long term carer.

Bridget is 76-years of age and she has cared for her son Dermot for many years, he has a learning disability. Now Bridget also cares for her husband Brendan who has Alzheimer’s.

As Bridget is always the one looking after people we thought it would be nice if someone looked after her for a change, so The Caterers ( stepped in and wined and dined Bridget and her family for the evening, and it looks like they did a great job! Newbridge Silverware also gave Bridget a beautiful set of cutlery and some fancy jewellery for herself.
