Simon Coveney explains his plan / Hugh Linehan reports from Glenties

Simon Coveney explains his plan / Hugh Linehan reports from Glenties

Part one: Regular host Hugh Linehan joins us live on the line from the MacGill Summer School in Glenties, Co. Donegal. A gathering of spokespeople from a variety of fields engage in frank and informed debate on issues such as Brexit, international terrorism, climate change and the political landscape in this country. Have these spirited discussions thrown up any new ideas or solutions? Hugh is not so sure, but there are free sweets for all.

Part two: "Social housing as part of private developments", this is what Minister for Housing, Planning and Local Government Simon Coveney wants. He joins host Pat Leahy and political correspondent Fiach Kelly in studio to discuss the main thrust of the new Action Plan for Housing and Homelessness. How will first time buyers be placated? Will the overwhelming demand for new homes be met, and is this a giveaway for builders and property developers?
