Fergal Keane and David McCullagh in conversation

Date: Saturday March 24th
Venue: Pavilion Theatre
Time: 3pm
Cost: €18 €16
Age: Adult

As you know Fergal Keane is BBC Africa Editor, which means he can be called away at the last minute and this week, due to the escalating situation in Ituri province, he has been called to the Congo. Sadly, he is unable to make his way back to Dublin for our event on Saturday.  We are as disappointed as you are but we have some relatively good news. Firstly we hope to make live contact with Fergal, subject to technology at his end. He has filmed a piece for our event, which we will screen.  Katie Hannon (RTE PRIME TIME and THE LATE DEBATE) who like Fergal has roots in North Kerry will join David McCullagh to continue the conversation.  Both Fergal's and David's books, give accounts of those both in and out of the public eye during and after the War of Independence, Civil War and their aftermath. 

David McCullagh is the author of The Reluctant Taoiseach, a biography of John A. Costello, and A Makeshift Majority, a history of the first inter-party government. He began working as a journalist with the Evening Press before joining RTÉ, where he currently presents the broadcaster’s flagship current affairs programme, 'Prime Time'.  His latest book De Valera:  Rise 1882-1932 is the first volume of a major two-part reassessment of the man who shaped modern Ireland.
