Reading several of the threads across Boards, and watching Irish people of different ethnic backgrounds on Twitter would indicate that a debate on racism in Ireland is not necessarily a bad thing.

It's not so long ago that mixed race couple felt they had to move out of Ireland because of the abuse they received for having taken part in an advertisement campaign for Lidl.

Anyway, back to Sara, I think she is doing a good job so far. Really impressed with the way she handled Pat McDonagh, Charlie Flanagan and especially Mary Lou. I thought Mary Lou really shot her bolt when in an attempt to stop the line of questioning, Mary Lou told her to ............Listen, we in Sinn Fein etc etc etc

Hope she gets the gig

Universities award PhDs for extended work on a topic. It's not a course. Educate yourself and maybe you'll become more tolerant.
They also award them for publicity and woke purposes:

This afternoon, history will be made in UCC when activist Brigid Quilligan will become the first Irish traveller to receive an honorary doctorate.
She will be conferred at UCC today, along with three other Irish people from media, business and the arts. [Irish Examiner]
The bould Biddy is now occasionally described in the media as "Doctor Brigid Quilligan"

That kind of grandstanding honestly does a disservice to actual PhDs and Doctors. The media reporting her as "doctor" should know better too - as if anyone would refer to Paul O'Connell as Dr. Paul O'Connell (he was the recipient of a honorary doctorate from UL).

Point taken re. Doctorates vs. Honorary Doctorates but I'd be inclined to cut her a bit of slack.

No, but I will take your point, and accept that she is doing well.

I will say there is more to the show than “putting manners on people” could I suggest that she ,perhaps , is a little too keen to develop that rep.

Can she swing a full show 5 days a week and keep folk interested all round.

That has to be established over the inter regnum?

We will see.

Best not even go down this road (as will only inevitably derail the thread), but no.

At the moment I'm finding Sarah's style of interview aggressive and combative, it's becoming a bit tiresome

Yeah, sometimes she's just grilling politicians for the sake of it. Grilling Regina Doherty over looking to claw back covid payments claimed fraudulently, as if that's something thats wrong or that should even be up for debate.

I'm enjoying it. She was excellent in shutting down the FGer and Aodhan on Friday constantly sniping.
