"The unions will never agree." Face to face summer school to catch up
Secondary schools in England will be asked to consider delivering face-to-face summer schools as part of efforts to help pupils catch up. Should the Irish government do the same here? After all most kids will only be back for 6 weeks then they will break for the summer. Will the unions and teachers ever agree? Henry McKean met parents and kids out for a walk.

TV in the radio?
Where has TV ON THE RADIO gone from the podcasts? It hasn’t been included for the past 2 weeks. Please bring it back!
Really enjoy this prog. Sean is both measured and fair and tries to accommodate all sides as a good interviewer should. A great sense of humour. Love the movies and booze slot!
Hope he will never call it a day.
One very happy listener.
Updates Are Sporadic
So you think you’re and adult is a brilliant item, genuinely funny and engaging but it sporadically added to the list. It’s a shame. Amanda Brunker should be a regular on the show; she and Sean have a great rapport.
