So do like we do here in TheJournal.ie HQ and get stuck into a serious debate on one of life’s most pressing issues.


This week: RTÉ’s new television ‘event’ – Amber – kicked off last night with 656,000 people tuning in. Hundreds of those viewers also took to Twitter to give their commentary on what was going on in the ‘missing person’ drama.
