Dublin Valentines’ is an annual public conversation between playwright and poet Dermot Bolger and well-known Dublin writers. This year his guest is David McWilliams, the leading economic commentator who was the first to see that the Irish boom was merely a credit bubble and among the very few to accurately predict it would end in a monumental crash with bank failures, negative equity, rising unemployment and emigration.
The author of such acclaimed bestsellers as The Pope’s Children, The Generation Game and Follow the Money, McWilliams will discuss the journey Ireland has gone through over the past two decades – and its likely journey in the decade to come – in a conversation that will be thrown open for the audience to actively participate in.
