The most important part of Weekend Breakfast is you guys! We LOVE engagement with our listeners whether they are on the way to sports practice, or music event, or sitting at home with a cup of tea.

Wherever you are we love to hear from you.

And sometimes you guys are listening in the strangest places - and this has to be the most unique ever!

This week we got a slimey email or I should say Snail Mail from Kieran Corley in Monaghan.

• Bragan Skincare is a family business – Kerri and Donal his kids help out!!

• Kieran has over 500,000 snails!!

• Fed with Vegs and fruit

• No offence but they don’t have any ears!

• It is particularly effective against skin conditions such as eczema, scar tissue, nappy rash and many other painful skin conditions... It has proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

There’s even a skateboarding snail called Derek!!

Check Kieran and his snails out and support Irish here:

SNAIL FACTS:

• In 500 BC the Roman Empire recognised snail balm

• as a natural skin treatment

• Snails are Hermaphrodites (they have both male and female sexual organs).

• A snail has 22,000 teeth.

• Each snail will lay approximately 100 eggs. In the wild only 3% will survive.

• If conditions are not perfect, a snail can curl up in its shell and remain dormant for 3 years before emerging unscathed (but probably a little hungry).

• A snail has no ears and very poor eyesight.

• Like big cats do by urinating, a snail leaves lots of information about itself for other snails in it's slime.
