Festival of Politics – A time for debate, discussion & raising the roof on political points that keep us talking both at home & abroad.

Is our rapacious appetite for flesh leading us to eat our planet to death and might bovine flatulence prove fatal? Should we be considering Cow Taxes rather than Carbon Taxes. The Festival of Politics is back to fearlessly answer these and other questions. Forget about the war of the WAGS, we are here to find out just what a political football the game of soccer really is.

Meet the US author who says RFK's killer, Sirhan Sirhan, is an innocent man and hear the proof firsthand. Learn about the Irish-American reporter described by Hemingway as the “greatest writer who ever lived” – was she really murdered for uncovering the truth behind JFK's assassination? Join us as we expose the dark side of NASA – and the ideas of free love, debauchery, and ‘Sex Magick' behind the project that took man into space. We are just scratching the surface. We are here to plumb the depths of ‘political' esoterica, armed only with irreverence, unquenchable curiosity and varying degrees of seriousness.

This is not a Think-in. This is not an Árd-Fheis. This is not your everyday Festival of Politics!

First Fortnight – The Art of Mental Health

Online

First Fortnight are a charity that challenges mental health prejudice through arts and cultural action. Each January, they run an amazing festival programme of events throughout the month. 2020 has been a year when we have been told to lock ourselves away from other people; to not see our friends and family and in some cases to isolate. There has of course been reason for this but the effect has left us lonely, isolated and vulnerable. This is something many people experience when they have a mental health difficulty they feel they can’t share. They feel powerless. When we challenge
