Fintan O’Toole’s searing lecture on Brexit and its implications was one of HomePlace’s sell-out highlights of 2016. Exactly one year on, he returns to the Helicon to explore issues that have dominated the news in the last turbulent twelve months – covering everything from the first year of Donald Trump’s presidency to the UK general election, to the implications for the UK and Ireland of triggering Article 50.
Since his last visit to HomePlace, Fintan O’Toole has been awarded European Commentator of the Year at the European Journalism Awards and the Orwell Prize for Journalism for his writings on Brexit.
Don’t miss what will undoubtedly be one of the most talked-about events of the autumn programme, as a journalist at the height of his powers explores one of the most explosive 12 months in recent history.
'It's not often that penetrating intelligence, a keen historical understanding and sparkling prose coincide in one journalist' - Dame Liz Forgan, Judge of the Orwell Prize for Journalism.
