The Round-Up: Thursday 24th March 2021

We meet Jackie Bates who has recently won third place in the Irish National Waterski League Competition at the age of seventy.

We talk to Dr Catherine Conlon, Director of Human Health and Nutrition, Safefood about the results of their recent survey into the nutritional value of vegetarian meat alternatives.

We also talk to Chris Godderidge, Vice President Mobile at Emarsys. The Covid-19 pandemic has given way to a surge in online shopping. With that in mind, Emarsys have carried out research on the impact shopping can have on our mental welbeing. A new trend known as “mindful shopping” is growing, as the number of online shoppers continue to rise.
