Morning Focus Monday 10/06/19

Morning Focus reflected on the visit of Donald Trump to Doonbeg and what the presence of the US President meant for the area.

As life returns to normal in the village of Doonbeg, Gavin was joined by Aideen O’Mahoney, Michelle Crowley and some of the pupils of Clohanes National School.

They spoke of their excitement at meeting President Trump as he played a round of golf at the Trump Doonbeg Resort.


The show also heard from publican and member of the local development association, Tommy Comerford.

Monday’s show opened with a look at the weekend’s hurling action as Clare lost out to Limerick. This was returned to later for the Monday Sports Panel.

Then the talk turned to the appointment of Clare’s next Mayor, Fianna Fáil’s Councillor Cathal Crowe.

Gavin also heard from Una Burns of Novas about ongoing efforts to open a hub for homeless families in Ennis in the near future.

The performance of Ennis in the IBAL anti-litter league was also discussed with Conor Horgan of Irish Business Against Litter. The county town has climbed back up to 14th place in Ireland after a disappointing 22nd place in 2018.

Sgt Tríona O’Rourke then joined Gavin with the weekly Garda Focus update.

Monday’s show concluded with The Sports Panel with Clare FM’s Darren Kelly and our hurling analyst, Tommy Guilfoyle.
