Galway Talks with John Morley
On today’s show:

Joshua Byrne spoke to John about Black Friday – and went out and about to gauge the opinion of the Galway public.
Enid McAleenan spoke to John about the Coole Voices Festival of Choir, which comes to Gort this weekend in aid of SVP.
John chats to Deputy Mairead Farrell, Senator Lisa Chambers and Senator Gerard Craughwell about the start of a four day ceasefire in Gaza between Israel and Hamas and the need to keep diplomatic ties open. They also look at Ireland’s triple lock system on troop deployment overseas – which the Government is looking to scrap, a move not universally popular.
