Bob Geldof On Business, Boris and Bling

Bob Geldof is well known as the lead singer of the Boomtown Rats and creator of Live Aid. But before all the fame and glory, he worked in an abattoir, busked and was an underground music editor. He left school without doing his Inter Cert. The rich lists say he's worth over 50 million euro. We asked him about his life in business.

Corona Compensation

The Financial Times is reporting fears of a global recession off the back of the continued coronavirus crisis. But what happens here if businesses are shut down? Who'll get paid and who won't and should the businesses themselves be compensated? We ask Colleen Cleary, Employment Law specialist with CC Solicitors and Danny McCoy, CEO of IBEC.

Have they been held up and will our shops and shelves be massively impacted? Liam Geraghty has been chatting to those waiting for the products coming in from the high seas.

Working From Home

Working From Home

We ask two such people, whose current colleagues mainly have four legs. Stand-up comedian Gearoid Farrelly and Dr Rebecca O'Neill, Project Co-ordinator for Wikimedia

We called out to Gavin Cromwell's yard in Co Meath yesterday to meet the trainer and the owners of one of the festival hopes. Darver Star is owned by Lotto winner Simon Fagan and breeders Pat Cluskey and Sean Fanning.
