Oscailt Monday March 11 2013

Lots of people are fearful of cuts being made that they feel will leave them in financial trouble and leaving them vulnerable, especially those living with a disability.  John McGuinness TD and Chair of the Public Accounts Committee joined us on air to chat about this and to give his opinions.

He also mentioned that he recently had a group from the Irish Wheelchair Association at the Dáil – so it was fitting that our next guests was Tony Coy of IWA Kilkenny.

There’s loads going on at their Claddagh Court premises – find out more about their Easter Food & Craft Fair
