This week on Radio TY, Jennifer got the chance to catch up with Aoife, who is a type 1 diabetes sufferer. She has been living with diabetes for over a year now and is coping well.  In this interview, Aoife tells us about what type 1 diabetes is and what it involves. Although it was hard for Aoife at first, she reminds us that it is important to stay positive and that things will get better. There is lots of support available for diabetes sufferers, the main one being Diabetes Ireland which gives you information and advice about Diabetes. It also contains recent news and upcoming events.

St.Raphaels Friendship Club

In this interview Ailbhe and Niamh interviewed the different members of St. Raphael's Friendship Club; these include the service users, the co-ordinator and the volunteers.
The friendship club is a club that was established in St.Wolstan's in 2008 where girls from the school visit St. Raphael's and play games and socialise with the service users every Wednesday on a rota.
It has become very popular and it is seen that not only do the service users benefit from the club but so do the volunteers.
This was a very enjoyable set of interviews to do and we hope you enjoy them too!
