strong hugs to all of galway, greetings from BRAZIL
I am a student nurse (mature student) half way through my 4 years training, with the poor money and the awful conditions that our nurses and doctors have to endure im not surprised that they are all going overseas.. i will be doing the same myself if conditions do not get better by the time i qualify.. at the moment as a student we are doing placements in hospitals and doing the same work as the rest of the staff even though we are supposed to be supernumerary and there to learn but due to the shortages of nurses we are used to bolster the understaffed shifts and are dead on our feet at the end of the day, but a student gets no money for theses placements until they get to their 4th year so we are doing this for free..by the time a student is qualified they have been driven out of our health service before they even start.. some of the politicians pay rises should be used to pay our nurses and students..
what do you make of Mrs T with rain coat "I really don't care. Do U?" (printed on the back!!!!) as she leaves the detention facilities of children separated from their mothers/ parents at the US border? Astonishingly crass sentiment given the situation / context. seemed like a quiet bystander up to now, in the relentless surge towards inciviility and medieval level standards. what on earth was that raincoat tweet all about?
Ivan, I don't agree with your comments about free travel. Its the one thing I look forward to when I retire. You be old someday yourself PG. Don't forget that
In reply to Eddie Marshall. If he thinks George Hook is entertaining then I must agree with Paul when he says there must be something in the water. George Hook is all about George Hook. Why please tell me does Newstalk bother to bring guest onto his show especially educated informative interesting guests you really want to listen to but all you get is George displaying his ignorance by talking total BS by asking the guest a question and he does all the answering. George is like watching paint dry on a very cold day. Evening after evening I cringed at his stupid rhetoric. Get the man off the air he is an embassment.
Just love listening to Newstalk from Pat Kenny right through to my hero Ivan Yates, just love the show at 4pm and his tv program at 11:00pm.
Geroge Hook is the best thing on Newstalk - the only real entertainment and a good giggle a wealth of Fun and Knowledge - delighted to see him back - what about a evening slot with George. Now Pat Kenny super always
think that was Sandy Hook. the school in Connecticut. point taken either way.
I cant believe that some Americans do not actually believe that the Sandy Hill shootings and indeed the other schools did not occur.
I've been diagonised with sleep apnoea, and I was told in the clinic the reason for needing to go to toilet during the night several times is because with sleep apnoea when you stop breathing, a chemical in the brain activates the kidneys, heance needing to go several times in the night.
Ireland is doing an excellent job on the red alert weather warning. However please advise people to ensure they have a reserve of water as I live in Kerry and my water supply stopped running/froze yesterday
I'm just back from living abroad and It beggars believe that Newstalk have reinstalled George Hook (all be it a Bunker Saturday morning show thats pre recorded that no sane person is awake on a Saturday morning to listen to) and have failed to renew Dil Wickremasing the only woman at Newstalk Radio who stood up against Hooks Remarks on Rape. Says it all really about firstly the station Newstalk but even more upsetting is the lack of support she got from the Female employees at Newstalk Radio.The moral fibre of that radio station is in bits. Solidarity among women in work place my arse,its all Lip Service
as an internal auditor/compliance officer, this could be a breakthrough in the profession however again it would cut down many jobs for people in this field.
Get a grip Ireland.... George offered a view, nothing more! Where is your loyalty for a man that has been pro Ireland ALL of his life,,, I love Ireland! I lived in Ireland... I am ashamed of the actions of Newstalk Radio on this issue and of Ireland!!
Ivan for God sake would you get an expert on electric cars please this guy hasn't a clue.
I supported George throughout his recent controversity. I really wanted to see him back. But that insulting,anti european demagoguery from his American guest has made me reconsider my stance. I do not know if I can listen in again.
How dare you put on such pro-Trump propaganda! This is outrageous. It's like listening to Lord Haw Haw. Offensive, incorrect, biased beyond believe. Get that demagogue off the air. Can't you do better George?
I am listening on a Saturday morning and I am horrified to hear that ntNewstalk Radio has an American talking like Rush Limbaugh. Hatetalk Radio. I'm switching off!
You seriously are't giving your favourite xmas songs? I'm pretty sure you guys have been drinking all night.
Yes you can pick up BBC and ITV iPlayer if you download and subscribe to an IP blocker. Been doing it for years.
t's just like the cigarettes - they got rid of 10 packs "for the benefit of Health" so people who were limiting their smoking had to buy 20's and ended up smoking more!! They'll still buy the beer and probably spend less on good food!
David mc Williams on talking to Pat . wonder will he be asked about his advise on radio to everyone on tracker mortgages to switch to vairable rates.
Can u play BTS new song DNA.
Beware the fierce storms .hide underneath the stairs,mother Earth and the little people!e are having their revenge ,we are all doomed
I have a number of comments about George Hook and Newstalk on my Blog IrishSalem.blogspot.com The one dated 3 October is a summary and has links to the others. One of the topics I deal with is the argument between Fintan O'Toole and Newstalk Managing Editor Patricia Monahan. Another is Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan and his denunciation of George Hook. In summary - I support George! https://irishsalem.blogspot.ie/2017/10/justice-minister-charlie-flanagan-and_3.html
Why is Newstalk not available on Amazon Echo?
I do know that I am a nobody in this world and never will be, making my comment very unimportant to the Irish people but I will make it. For the last ten years I have worked between Ireland and Europe, I am currently back in Dublin now working on a project in the city. Every morning I leave Phibsboro at 5.45 to walk to D4 to my absolute shock and horror I can not believe or understand why we have so many homeless people sleeping in doorways and on the streets when a country that presently is again going through boom times. Society has become all wrong and is not working for the poor and vulnerable, I do not believe we should be sending so much foreign aid overseas while we have an epidemic here that seems to be being addressed at a snails pace, please help me to understand why we are allowing this to happen. We are living in the times of greed and without God, today I'm ashamed to be Irish.
madness i am renting privately 5 years and i can't get mortgage I'm carer i do not get rent supplement nothing and i am on housing list with my dependent son this just mad if people borrowed and now can't pay the house you loose it simple not fair the y get to stay in dream homes
I am disgusted that a totally fair comment/observation spoken by George Hooke recently has been hijacked by the feminist sisterhood and used to bully an excellent presenter off the air. George Hook entered a proviso in his initial condemnation of rape and confirmed that the people who have been convicted of this crime should be made face the full rigours of the law. The sisterhood however simply refuse see this and insist that a woman should be free to go where she wishes with no thought to the prospect of any lurking danger. That is fine in a perfect world -- but we are not in a perfect world. We are all obliged to assess our surroundings from time to time and avoid going where we feel our personal safety is likely to be at risk. Why do the sisterhood refuse to see this? The management of Newstalk will show their metal or lack of it in how they face up to or cave in to the bullying tactics of the feminists pressure group.
My family and I are totally disappointed and shocked at Newstalk for suspending George Hook. We listened to the programme and it was evident to us that George Hook was simply stating the facts as they exist and most certainly did not condone the rape in any way. George Hook is one of the most formidable journalists on air, a decent and a good man, with a high intellect and one who brightens up our day. Shame on you Newstalk for bowing to certain social media and vested interests. Freedom of speech should be applauded and not censored. We miss George Hook and will most certainly not support the station until he is reinstated. Do show some backbone Newstalk - REINSTATE GEORGE HOOK! You have done George Hook a grave injustice!
Yes agree George says it as it is Newstalk is much more relevant with his imput along with Ivan Yeats.Loose your man Shane Coleman and Alan Quinlan.Don't listen any more in the morning & evening only RTE1 and Today FM.Dump all those do gooders like Fintan O Toole
What Hook said makes sense to me. Surely everybody has a duty to add to their own security and take precautions regarding their own safety. Nobody said at any point that it was the victims fault, but the simple fact is that there are nasty people out there in the big bad world and we should all be wary for our own good. The bleeding hearts and artists would love to live in a lovey dovey world, but it doesn't exist, unfortunately. Give one of these guys an opportunity or even the idea of an opportunity and they will take it. Hook was merely pointing this out, i heard what he had to say and I saw no wrong in it, though he drives me insane with his right wing views, on this one occasion he may well have been right.
Not sure what exactly G. Hook said. But is he not entitled to his opinion right or wrong. Do we not have free speech in this country or is Big Brother watching everything we say. Thats what makes for good radio and good discussion in general.
I am disgusted that George Hook has been suspended. He is a decent man - as stated in no way condoned rape, and has been badly let down by Newstalk and vested interests. Boycott Newstalk and those sponsors until he is reinstated !
Shocked that Newstalk gave in to hysteria and suspended George Hook. Love his show and want to see him reinstated. I am a feminist and campaigned in the women's movement for decades. I don't believe in censorship - debate is the democratic way to challenge opinions. Newstalk has always been a fantastic forum for all shades of opinion until now. The few thousand petitioners are a tiny fraction of the listenership which is the true measure of Newstalk's popularity. Other sponsors will be glad of the slots vacated by Tesco and the hotel group. Have the courage of your convictions and reinstate George. Don't be cowards.
I am disappointed with Newstalk for suspending George Hook in no way could any reasonabale person think that George condones rape regardless of the circumstances in which this crime happens,i am disgusted with Newstalk for bowing to the vested interests and social media, in the intrest of natural justic reinstate George without delay show some backbone Newstalk.
I have always enjoyed George Hook's frank discussions on air and which have been direct, fair and honest. I heard the so called controversial programme and I can't believe that his comments, which relate to the real world have had this reaction. I have discussed this issue with a number of people who listened to the programme and we were all of the one mind that it was a statement of the facts as they exist. Why should this good journalist, who is known for always speaking his mind honestly and fairly, be punished for stating the truth. I am very disappointed to note that Newstalk have decided to take punitive action against Mr Hook . If that is the attitude being taken by Newstalk then I' m afraid I will lend my ear to another radio station. I simply have no intention of supporting a station which hasn't the backbone to stand up to such hypocrisy signed: disappointed listner
I will never listen to who ever replaces George he is a kind man and a family man I will miss him his banter a very good man
I agree if you don't like George don't listen - I think Newstalk has done their bit George has been suspended but I think the issue should finish there !!
Everybody can make a mistake. When I listen to George, I don't agree with everything he says but I have to acknowledge that he's not a bad person. I can disagree with plenty he says and still think he's a good guy. He has apologised, sincerely in my opinion. If you don't like him, just don't listen. Social media mob mentality should not be pandered too. I hope you stand by your man Newstalk. We all make stupid mistakes sometimes.
Mr Hook it seems to me the only reason you are apologising for your support of rapist's is to save your income. I don't accept your self serving apology. Your view on rape is truly disgusting and I will repeat that view in public the next time I see you in Foxrock..I may not have a radio programme but I have a voice and I will use it. Real men don't think or speak like you Mr Hook. Real men are sickened and shamed by males like George Hook and his paymaster Denis O Brien.
I will not be switching again to Newstalk after listening the unbelievable comments by G Hook . It truly shows what a Male chauvinist he is. O M Lord has he not moved on from the days he played Rugby & women were regarded as 'fair game'. I'm disgusted that such an ignorant man is allowed on the a ir waves in 2017. Waken up whoever Manages your station.
M45 outer orbatal was planned what happened it
My daughter received the HPV vaccine and within days was in agony before going to hospital and spending 10 days there with suspected liver disease, avoid this poison
Very sad to hear that no women will be on the air Monday to Friday. I think I will demonstrate my annoyance by not listening.
Its abt time Geoge stopped on abt the gas chambers, they never existed, bt george is too thick to read any so called anti semitc truths .Does he know they are many many rabbis that oppose the isreali state too . ,t u wont ever any reports of that in msm , i wonder why ?
I m on live Newstalk in Mauritius for the news in ireland.I m back in Dublin soon after five week
Tony Byrne seems to have left school way too early. He is clearly incapable of formulating a sentence properly and punctuation appears to be a complete mystery to him. In parts, his note doesn't even look like English. Go back to school Tony.
i have complained 2 time this week by tex,on tues your sports dept did not give out the f a i cup draw which was made on monday night,they on wedsdays ur same sports dept did not give out the shamrock rovers result,i made to complints and i heard noting back, some people dont follow the money leauge in england ,so please can you give fair play to us,thanking you
So glad that Chris O Donoghue is gone from Drive time. He is too pompous too condescending and no real chemistry between him his female co anchor. He worked well with Ivan Yates as he put balance to ,Ivan's opinions, but I just had to turn off from drive time when he is there, Ciaran Cuudy is a far better personality for the show and I feel the two presenters have much more genuine rapport
Why the blackout on the events from the IAAF? Please be aware that real athletes do exist beyond the ignorant howls of the herd. Instead you gravitate towards the rough and tumble and delight yourselves in low level talk
Your broadcaster is surprisingly ill-informed with respect to challenges within the health system (i.e. X-rays after 6pm- these are available 24/7; , weekend discharges - these do take place, weekend rounds are a reality and discharges take place when and if patients have a place to go to, salaries for consultants - money is NOT the issues, making people stay for three years? A ridiculous suggestion. A consultant post is not about an individual, it is about all the associated support services being in place. There are many newly appointed consultants who are powerless to do any work once appointed as there is no system (ir- clinic space, support staff, theatre access, endoscopy access... the list goes on and on and on). Sincerely, Two Irish trained consultants working outside Ireland, with no foreseeable public jobs to return to which would allow us contribute in the manner which we are trained to do.
Just been listening to Pat Kenny and the LRC Lawyer on Suspended Sentences, a serious bone of contention with me. Really serious offenders and cases are getting these and it is so disheartening to the point of not wanting to live in my own country anymore. A young girl was raped at a famous nightclub in North County Dublin at the weekend and the perpetrators were caught on CCTV - let off WITHOUT CHARGE, how is this possible. And even if brought to justice what the odds they get SUSPENDED SENTENCES
Visiting from Montreal
Paul Williams is a factotum of the Garda hierarchy, not a journalist
Paul Williams + Ciara Kelly , a no no as presenters .
Could you outline problems with banking call centers many people are having ? My wife tries to open savings account in BOI and we can't do it for last 3 weeks ! Every call center consultants says something different. Last advise was to take photo id and go to branch. In branch they didn't need photo id, called BOI line, generated PIN but said ( opposite to info line) that thay cannot issue card to savings account... This is RIDICULOUS what is happening in banks now !
You're absolutely right about it, and those banksters also use immigrants to escalate the slavery of working people.
How many thousands of acres of land are property (poverty) developers Hoarding until the next Phantom Celtic Tiger (Misery) returns?? Housing crisis = House price rises!! No supply + Huge demand = Big profits for Vulture funds, Cerberus & Company? One big gigantic Scam!! Financially enslave the good honest working people of Ireland & control us through Bank debt! Time to end this corruption £££ once & for all.
When is the Pat Hickey Corruption Trial date set to resume?? Who paid his bail money of €410,000 & will Seanie Fitz.P be there giving him moral support? Citizens of Ireland we do Not forget.
Seamus , that's why you are pear shape .

You are a lovely young lady follow your heart and live your life to the best you can have a great life ,believe in yourself and never give up.
It is complete lies to say the scientific findings of the Andrew Wakefield et al study have never been replicated. They have been replicated more than a dozen times, here is the last study https://www.dovepress.com/gastrointestinal-symptoms-and-autism-spectrum-disorder-links-and-risks-peer-reviewed-fulltext-article-PHMT. Also my son got his MMR and still got the vaccine strain of the measles which caused encephalitis and chronic inflammation.
Pat - you know only too well that the Civil Service Privilege Day you referred to in your programme today is long gone. Your view on this was very heavily emphasised by you on your programme at the time.
why the large brown wet spot at the back of your pant ? ? why why why
Pat ,who is this guy promoting smoking,has he been at the bedside of someone dying from lung cancer due to smoking? Taking money from the tobacco industry but not taking ''direction'' b***s**t !
George, Michael McDowell is making the same argument as was made for bankers. That is we must pay huge salaries and pensions or we won't get the best people. They were given huge salaries and pensions and look what they did to the country. Michael McDowell is looking after his own again.
Pat, who was that eejit you were talking to about the 30 k speed limit, about 18 mph !. it is ridiculously slow. most car/bike accidents are at slow speed.the councils have ramped everywhere-- i have broken 3 springs on my car due to ramps and sunken hole covers which are lower than the road surface. i also use a scooter which is likely to cause a serious crash... and cut your tongue in two !!

hi Michael who pointed out 6109 ,well Obama should not be popping up on any ones computer any more he is a civilian just like everyone else and if 6109 dose not like negros he has every right, its that simple so you should a big poster and stick it on your living room wall.
Have you seen the racist comments about Obama by guest 6109 on you live chat?
Why did Pat Kenny not ask Ivana if she is in favour of abortion on demand apart from the Labour Party's position
I totally agree with Ann Widdicombe that we are analysing our children far too much, and at much too early an age. In my opinion, gender differences/alignment may be more helpfully discuss when a child reaches teen age, along with other issues relating to sexuality, relationships, how to be a responsible adult/citizen etc.
