Regular Features

Kidstalk - Every week Henry visits schools to interview children aged 8 to 11 all over the country to delve in to the thoughts rattling around in their young heads. Kidstalk covers the fun side of childhood, brings attention to the more serious problems facing our children and often more 'grown up' issues are tackled with surprising wisdom by the children Henry chats to.

Kidstalk has been dubbed 'Give Up Your Oul' Sins' for the twenty first century. Ireland is now a very multinational country and it all starts in the classroom. The boys and girls from all over the world talk about the changes this has brought to their lives and if they are happy in Ireland. Every week the kids also discuss social problems in their area.

Kidstalk gets a great response from the listeners and the children that take part. It's an enjoyable interview process with local children airing their views on life in their community. Kidstalk airs every Saturday morning on Under the Covers between 8-9am and on the Breakfast show at 8.50am on Monday mornings
