On Wednesday’s Déise Today, Eamon spoke to Ray Barry from Tramore, parent of fifth year student Niall, who has been ‘isolated’ in class because he died his hair to raise money for charity.
Fine Gael Councillor, Damien Geoghean also spoke to Déise Today about serious horse welfare issues in Dungarvan.
Seamus O’Donnell, Independent City and County Councillor is warning that ‘lives’ could be lost in Waterford City and County Council continue to rule out the possibility of dredging Helvick Harbour. Seamus joined us live in studio.
One of the key interviews on today’s show was with Tony O’Reilly, a former postmaster in Gorey who told us his extraordinary story. Tony gambled €10million and stole €1.75million from An Post during his time working for them. He told WLR about how his online gambling addiction cost him his marriage, his liberty and nearly his santity. Tony has since published a book ‘Tony 10’ and now works as a councillor. (Click here to go straight to that interview.)
And finally, Director of Waterford Museum of Treasures, Eamonn McEneany spoke to Déise Today about ‘Vadrefjord’, the International Viking Festival that takes place in Waterford over Easter weekend.
