Presented by Mary Kennedy and Anne Cassin, Nationwide brings Irish viewers an eclectic round-up of news, views and events from around the country.
We celebrate all that is good at the 146th running of the Irish Grand National at Fairyhouse racecourse with a prize purse of 500,000 euro. Anne Cassin is out and about at the meeting and she meets Rita Shah who on the request of her partner, the late Oliver Brady, one of the most enigmatic characters in Irish racing, has raised nearly 750,000 euro to donate a gene sequencing machine for the Mater Hospital. This machine will identify potential life threatening conditions early and save lives through intervention. Anne chats to racecourse manager Peter Roe about running an event of this size and why it is called the race of people and she also speaks to some of the ladies who have dressed up for the event. Plus reporter Mary Fanning meets horse trainer Gordon Elliott and Helen McInerney goes back in time and visits the Dreaper yard in County Dublin.
