"I Am Thrilled That The Tampon Ad Has Been Banned - It Was Offensive & Vulgar"

30 July - 49 mins
Podcast Series 98FM's Dublin Talks

This morning on Dublin Talks we discussed the "you gotta get them up there girls" tampon ad which has now been banned - this has caused huge controversy today...

We spoke to a Dublin woman who told us why she is "absolutely thrilled" that this ad has been banned.

She also told us about how herself and her husband found it extremely offensive and embarrassing - he had to change the station every time it came on.

What are your thoughts on this?

The Waiting Room: How Many Christmas Drinks Is Too Many

The Waiting Room: How Many Christmas Drinks Is Too Many

The Waiting Room on Dublin Talks: Christmas Drinks Every week on Dublin Talks we have your medical questions answered in The Waiting Room. Dr Sharon Delaney is on hand to give expert advice and tips on any issues you may have. Here's this week's topics: Could you please ask Dr Delaney how I can prevent mouth ulcers. I seem to be in a constant cycle, one appears just as another has healed. Some are really large and painful to the point they make it difficult to eat. I take vitamins, have a relatively OK diet and don't feel run down otherwise. Is there anything else I can do? Cormac Since lockdown began last March I know a lot of my family and friends have ended up drinking more than usual but it's something I've tried to avoid slipping in to. I'm trying to be more aware of the alcohol consumption in general and with Christmas coming up I'd like to keep an eye on it but still enjoy myself too. Realistically, how many drinks should I be limiting myself to in an evening/week? Gavin For Dr Delaney, over the last number of months I've noticed a rash of tiny red bumps appearing on my chest that comes and goes randomly. I've never had this before and in general have very good skin. I can't think what is causing it but sometimes it gets itchy and drives me mad! Lucy in Ballinteer.

Landlord Offering Half Price Rent To Couples Wanting To Save To Buy

A Dublin landlord is doing something lovely This morning on Dublin Talks we heard of a landlord who's hoping to help a couple get on the property ladder. They wanted to remain anonymous but are taking applications through Howley Souhan estate agents. David Souhan from the agents told us the two-bed house in Ongar village has a rental value of about €1700. However, the landlord wants to help a couple with their saving for a mortgage and is offering the rent for €800 a month. In order to apply you must be able to prove you're saving for a mortgage, are in full time employment and have references from previous landlords. To find out more about the house in question check out Howley Souhan.
