Listen back to Thursday's Deise Today as Maria talks to personal finance journalist Charlie Weston about how home buyers in Ireland are paying thousands more per year on our mortgages, than people in most other European countries!
The show heard about a new (distressing) report into complaints about residential care home settings in Ireland. Niamh Griffin from the Irish Examiner explained how over 1,000 complaints have so far been received by the Office of the Confidential Recipient.
There was also chat - and warnings - about their 'buy now, pay later' approach to credit in Ireland AND are there benefits to running your family like a business?! A leading parenting guru in the US thinks so - and Maria chatted to Irish parenting commentator Laura Erskine to see if she agreed!
