David McWilliams, Fintan O'Toole, Shane Ross, and Nick Webb - the Four Angry Men - are coming to Galway next month to debate the state of the nation.
The quartet will be in the Radisson Hotel on Sunday December 2 from 7.30pm, where they will examine the current crisis, lift the lid on who was really responsible, and debate where the State should go from here. The event will be hosted and chaired by broadcaster and journalist Olivia O’Leary.
Economist David McWilliams is a columnist for the Irish Independent and the Sunday Business Post. He is the author of the best-sellers The Pope’s Children and The Generation Game. His new book, The Good Room, explains the bizarre economics behind Ireland’s current predicament, and posits a radically different path for the State.
The Irish Times’ Fintan O’Toole is one of Ireland’s leading commentators and journalists. He is the author of a number of books including Ship of Fools and Enough is Enough.
Shane Ross is an independent TD for Dublin South, and columnist in the Sunday Independent. He wrote The Bankers, a number 1 best-selling title, in 2009. Nick Webb is business editor of the Sunday Independent. Both men are the co-authors of the book The Untouchables: The people who helped wreck Ireland – and are still running the show, published by Penguin Ireland.
