Also on the podcast, Suzanne Lynch discusses moves in Europe to forge closer security ties in the face of terror threats and the continuing influx of migrants. What will it mean for the EU and how much integration will be acceptable here in Ireland?

And Guy Hedgecoe, having spent the morning at the Toro de la Vega festival in Tordesillas, Spain, reports on how a new ban on the traditional slaughter of bulls at the festival has led to conflict between locals and animal rights activists, and why the future for bloodsports in Spain is looking increasingly bleak.
