Lord Mayor's Commission on Employment:
I am a member of the Lord Mayors Commission on Employment which has been meeting regularly over the last number of months and has been so successful that Fine Gael are even beginning to steal some of its ideas - Brian Hayes getting excited over foreign students is a classic example. The commission are organising a conference for Friday the 23rd of April in Croke Park - for more details see www.dublincity.ie
Spending Mother's Day with Leo Varadkar:
Woke up last Sunday realising that I had bought nothing for Mothers Day and that I had to run into Today fm for the Sam Smyth show. On the panel last Sunday was Leo Varadkar and Marion McKeown. Have a listen here, especially interesting is my description of the Huckle-Buck on the Late Late Show.....Leo had never heard of it! He'll never be Fine Gael leader with that sort of snobbery.....
