    Niall Boylan

In this emotionally charged episode, Niall tackles a gripping question: Would You Report Your Own Child For Selling Drugs? The discussion stems from a recent news article recounting a mother’s anguishing choice to alert the Gardaí about her son’s substantial cannabis stash.

Senior counsel Tom Creed pleads for leniency, highlighting the young man’s efforts to turn his life around. Judge Dara Hayes acknowledges the mother’s pivotal role in potentially saving her son from a perilous path.

The news article unfolds a harrowing scene where Garda Chris Campbell responds to a desperate call from Margaret Kennelly, fearing for her teenage son’s life amid a drug-fueled downward spiral. The discovered €25,500 cannabis stash becomes a focal point in a legal battle that prompts soul-searching questions about privacy, tough love, and the complex dynamics of familial bonds.

As Niall opens the lines, callers share a spectrum of views. Some empathize with the mother, recognizing the severity of drug issues but questioning the invasion of privacy. They advocate for addressing societal problems contributing to drug abuse. Others argue that tough choices, like reporting a child, are sometimes necessary to prevent tragedy, emphasizing personal responsibility.

Join the conversation as this episode delves into the delicate balance between parental duty, privacy concerns, and the stark realities families confront in the face of drug-related challenges.
