The Irish Creative Collective presents Comhráite, with Fergal Keane

A dynamic live series of ordinary conversations with extraordinary people.

For 40 years, Fergal Keane’s sagacious reporting has transported us into the heart of conflicts across the world. From Kyiv to Kigali, he has held architects of atrocity to account while championing unsung stories of bravery, resilience and resistance.Spanning a plethora of subjects including Irish identity, humanitarian and economic crises and his own experiences with post-traumatic stress disorder, his work has shone a light on countless crucial issues of our times; leaving audiences better informed of -and more engaged with- the world as a result.

Speaking with James OR, Fergal shares what being Irish means to him, the ways it has shaped his life and work, and how he fosters his own creativity in today’s attention economy.
