                No dogs allowed not even on a leash - that could soon be the reality for owners in Mid and East Antrim where the council is considering dog exclusion zones. Anyone caught walking their dog in the zones listed - and list is extensive - could face a fine of up to £80. Some of the 96 areas proposed include the Knockagh Monument on the outskirts of Carrickfergus, parts of Carnfunnock Country Park in Larne as well as playing fields and community centres in Ballymena, Greenisland and Whitehead. You have got until June 19th to let the council know what you think of the plans. We discussed the issue on the programme today with plenty of callers!

                What a blow for the Milk Cup, for the first time in 25 years Manchester United wont be bringing their stars to the north coast. They pulled out over the weekend despite confirming their attendance a number of weeks ago. So no chance for fans here to see the old trafford stars of do you feel cheated given the amount of money fans here spend every year supporting the club...or did we rely too heavily on personal contacts to make it happen....and is this now a reality check for the organisers...

              • Talkback 14 May 2015: Scrap the Human Rights Act?

                After David Cameron's surprise win at the polls, he now has the political clout to press forward with radical changes in a number of very sensitive areas -- including his plan to abolish the Human Rights Act, which was brought into law by Tony Blair. But the SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon has already told him they'll be keeping it in Scotland, and some politicians here are furious about plans to dump the act in Northern Ireland. The Sinn Fein president Gerry Adams says the prime minister's plan amounts to a scandalous attack on the peace process. Similar concerns have been raised by the SDLP. How serious is this Tory plan for the future of the peace process in Northern Ireland? Do you think life is better under the Human Rights Act? Or do you agree with its critics that this act has turned into a charter for the protection of criminals and terrorists?
