On Todays Show,

Ryan spoke to Sinead Kane, Ireland’s first Visually Impaired Solicitor. Sinead has a combination of four eye conditions which leave her with only five per cent vision, meaning that she is legally blind. Sinead was highlighting some of the issues that visually impaired people encounter. You can check out Sinead’s website www.sineadkane.ie

Lots of links this week, many focusing on Ruairi Quinn and the appointment of his new adviser, Journalist John Waters as well as his focus on improving literacy. It’s also Organ Donation Week this week and there has been a lot of coverage of this and the proposed new system of ‘opting out’.

Also came across this great initiative for students trying to decide what they want to do in college: http://courseinsights.com/
