Disturbing the Peace is a podcast focused on the less-talked-about topics in Ireland. Hosted by content creator and writer Rachel O’Neill, the podcast aims to tackle those subjects that you don’t always hear or read about. It might make you laugh, it might make you cry, it might even make you squirm. The point of it is to make you think about things and see things in a new light and maybe learn something while you’re at it.

    Ciara - #RemoteWorking

    It's safe to say that we've all stared at screens a lot more this year than any other year. Getting used to Zoom, Teams or even Skype hasn't been easy and our spines are definitely suffering because of it. Ciara has been working remotely for 4 years though so she's well used to it. She joins Rachel to chat about what those 4 years have been like, the advice she's been dishing out all year the those of us trying to get used to working from home and why she made the decision to move to Offaly in the middle of a pandemic.

    Darragh McKenna - #ChristmasCOVID

    Coming home for Christmas is something that Irish people love to do. There was plenty of controversy over an Irish Times article where some people said they would be coming home and not obeying the restrictions around isolating. Others have made the difficult decision not to come home at all. Darragh McKenna is one of those people. He joins Rachel to discuss what it's been like to be in Sweden throughout COVID, the decision not to come home to Ireland for Christmas and how it's been to watch Ireland from afar.

    Katie, Danny and Michael - #CollegeAndCOVID

    Going to college is one of the most exciting parts of your life. It's a time where you can drink too much, meet new people and still manage to emerge with some qualification. COVID has of course changed all that with an increased focus on remote learning and lot more time spent looking at screens. So how are students coping and responding? Joining Rachel is a panel of students; Danny, a first year student in UCC, Michael a final year student in GMIT and Katie, a mature student in UCD to discuss their experiences and what it's been like to do college through COVID.

    Seán Defoe - #TheYearInPolitics

    It's a bit of an understatement to say "2020 has been a year". But it's especially been a year in Irish politics. An election that nobody really won, COVID and GolfGate are just some of the things that have plagued the political landscape. So who better to give his take on the year that's (almost) been than Group Political Correspondent for Communicorp, Seán Defoe.

    Content Warning: This podcast contains descriptions of child sexual abuse and rape. It may not be suitable for all listeners.
    In 2020, Túsla ruled that Mick Finnegan's allegations of sexual abuse by a member of St John's Ambulance were "founded" when he was a teenager. Mick was groomed, abused and raped as a teenager by someone in power and by someone he trusted. That abuse has left deep scars, both physically and mentally. Mick joins Rachel to discuss what happened to him, how he was failed, how he has begun to heal and how he has learnt to forgive his abuser.
