A great resource for Irish news

This serves as a great resource for an expat wanting to keep up to date with issues in ireland.
I think they could polish the only amateurish part of the podcast: the audio fade-in and out of the theme song, though.

Union Bashing in the Private Sector

I really enjoy the podcast and would love to have a daily dose of it.

I work for a multinational company virgin media where the company and unions have existed since the days of cablelink.

Under the new CEO of the company he has directed the company not to acknowledge the unions and refuses to engage with them and continuously is making redundancies in which the latest is 65...

This is just an example of my company union bashing but According to Unite and Siptu this is a wider issue around the country..
I think this is a serious issue for the public and the everyday worker that should be highlighted.
