The senator and civil rights campaigner David Norris turns 70 today. This milestone comes not long after a life-saving liver transplant to combat a cancerous growth that was discovered there.

The good news is that the senator is on the mend and is back in action, having tabled a motion for the Seanad to debate the escalating crisis in Gaza, which is due to take place later today.

He sat down with Newstalk Breakfast's Chris Donoghue a few days ago, over a cup of tea and some biscuits, to talk about his cancer treatment, transplant scares, gay rights and a career in public life.

You can listen back to the whole interview below:
