Right now in Ireland one child in 10 is living in consistent poverty. You can help. You can change a child’s life by giving whatever you can on Barnardos’ national collection day on Friday September 19th in Ennis, Co Clare.Buckets for Barnardos is the children’s charity’s national collection day, taking place in towns and cities across Ireland on Friday 19 September, to raise vital funds for Barnardos’ work with children and families.CEO of Bernardos Fergus Finlay spoke to Marian about the issue.
Scotland has rejected independence, despite the Yes campaign winning a majority in the largest city. While Glasgow voted in favour of independence, the margin of victory was not large enough to give Alex Salmond and his campaign the momentum they needed. There were also wins for Yes in three of Scotland's 32 local authority areas - Dundee, West Dunbartonshire and North Lanarkshire.
While there was a comfortable majority in Dundee, the turnout in the city was 78.8% - lower than many other parts of Scotland, indicating that the Yes campaign has not managed to get voters out in sufficient numbers.The turnout in Glasgow was even lower at 75%, with 194,779 Yes votes (53.49%) and 169,347 No votes (46.51%). Corrie Martin News Editor with Capital Radio Scotland joined Marian to discuss the result.
