The Nolan Show - 20/05/2009

Today sees the publication of another report in the Republic about the abuse of children entrusted to the Catholic Church. We hear from Dublin correspondent Shane Harrison who has been speaking with some of the victims. We also hear some harrowing stories from the victims themselves. The future of the Middletown Centre for Autism is being called into question. Is there sufficient support available for Autistic children and their parents? Listener Jane is having problems with her bin collection in Rathcoole; Obscene TV - are we becoming desensitised with more vulgar and obscene material? And last orders - the House of Commons speaker Michael Martin announces his departure. But is he simply a scapegoat?
