Ministers join Sean O’Rourke in the studio
Sean O’Rourke is to host a post-Budget special as Ministers Brendan Howlin TD and Michael Noonan TD join him for a live phone-in.
The two ministers will be with Sean in the studio, taking calls from listeners about how the budget affects them. The show will compliment RTÉ Radio 1’s coverage of Budget 2014 on Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th October 2013.
On the Tuesday an extended Drivetime will begin at the earlier time of 2.30pm as Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform Brendan Howlin TD delivers his pre-Budget speech.
Mary Wilson will be speaking to both Minister Michael Noonan and Brendan Howlin TD after their speeches and the Drivetime panel will provide comment and analysis.
Acting Head of RTÉ Radio 1, Tom McGuire said; “We welcome once again the annual RTÉ Radio 1 post budget phone in. This is truly a national conversation where the people can talk directly to the decision makers and ask the questions that exercise them in Budget 2014.”
