John Delaney resigned from his role as executive vice-president of the FAI last year, as details emerged of excessive spending.

Ellen DeGeneres Apologises After Toxic Workplace Allegations - But Was It Hollow?

Ellen DeGeneres Apologises After Toxic Workplace Allegations - But Was It Hollow?

All eyes were on Ellen DeGeneres when her talk show returned for a new season, as she finally addressed the toxic workplace allegations that emerged over the summer. DeGeneres opened with a joke that her summer had been "terrific", before apologising to "the people who were affected." She also added: "I've let myself down and I've hurt myself as well." But the presenter's apology did not sit well with former employees of the show, who complained about incidents of sexual harassment, racism and intimidation. Jennifer Gannon and Joe O'Shea discussed this and more in our weekly TV slot. [audio mp3="https://media.radiocms.net/uploads/2020/09/25180941/LW-Ellen.mp3"][/audio]

An old TV set was found to be responsible for 18 months of daily broadband outages in a Welsh village. The residents of Aberhosan mysteriously lost their broadband every morning at 7am. When engineers investigated, they discovered that electrical interference from one householder's second-hand TV was to blame. The unnamed resident, who was said to be "mortified", agreed not to use the TV again. Pat Fitzpatrick and Laura Byrne joined us for The Week Trending to look at this and some of the other stories making the news this week.
