American-British playwright, novelist and critic Bonnie Greer spoke to broadcaster Miriam O’Callaghan at a sold out European Movement Ireland event in the National Concert Hall this evening, less than two months after her comments on BBC’s ‘Question Time’ in relation to the impact of Brexit on Ireland and the ‘special’ relationship between Ireland and the US went viral worldwide
In conversation with Miriam O Callaghan, Ms Greer spoke about the devastating impact Brexit is expected to have on Ireland and addressed the sensitive ‘four-way’ issue of Irish – UK – EU – US relations. She went on to discuss the current state of democracy worldwide and politics in the US as the 2020 US Election campaign gets underway. She spoke about her own work and what her influences over the years, one of which being her own move from the US to the UK in 1986. She concluded by looking forward to address the challenges of Brexit, and both the present and future of the UK and the European Union as a whole.
So listen along to Bonnie, Miriam and our very own Noelle O Connell, as they speak to a live audience on an array of topics.
