This week on Down to Business: Jim McGuinness, butchers and Teeling Whiskey

Another jam-packed show to kick-start your Saturday...

This week on Down to Business: Jim McGuinness, butchers and Teeling Whiskey

INPHO/Morgan Treacy

The show is live tomorrow morning and, as ever, Bobby Kerr will be covering all things business.

Be sure to tune in on air and online from 10:00am so you don’t miss a thing.

Here’s what you have to look forward to:

  • First up, we peruse the papers and see what’s on the front page and what’s making a big impact in the business pages. Joining us this week will be the Chief Executive of the Irish Aviation Authority Eamonn Brennan.
  • Fed up wearing massive headphones in public? Padraig Clarke, one of the directors of Saorbuga, just might have the solution. He’ll be talking about their Bluetooth beanie hats and headbands with inbuilt speakers to connect to your player.
  • Bobby will be visiting Teelings Whiskey Distillery to marvel at their tremendous marketing as well as their fine tipples
  • Purpose at work - we speak to the American who says even hospital janitors can find meaning in their job
  • Getting to the meat of the matter, we talk to three butchers, from Newport, Kilcullen and Cabra about how the local shop is one of the last traditional, community-based retailers around and review the industry as whole.
  • Bobby catches up with the Donegal legend that is Jim McGuinness. Speaking at the Annual Hotels Federation Conference, the All-Ireland winner will talk about the parallels between sport and business.
  • Wrapping up the show on another high note, Stephen Grant of Grant Engineering will be telling the story of how he became the Midlands’ greatest inventor.

All this and more on Down to Business from 10:00am until midday tomorrow morning, on air and online.

As ever, you can find blog posts and weekly DTB highlights on our show page.
