Ireland’s Edge, the distinct ideas stream within Other Voices, announces its full programme of speakers, panel discussions and performances.

Ireland’s Edge had already revealed an impressive line-up of speakers to its programme, including acclaimed investigative journalist Carole Cadwalladr who worked with whistleblower Christopher Wylie to publish her investigation into Cambridge Analytica and Donie O’Sullivan of CNN among others.

Focusing on the dilemmas causing uncertainty and contextualising the potential effects for Ireland from Brexit, Ireland’s Edge will look at the borderland between the known predictable world and the uncharted territory in the weekend’s discussion in Dingle.

After sharing the initial speakers they are now upping the ante, announcing six more guests for this year’s edition of panels and discussions. Joining the current lineup are: Oisín Coghlan, Director of Friends of the Earth Ireland, Tomás Ó Sé – member of the Kerry Senior Football squad for 17 seasons, holder of 5 All Ireland medals, and a regular pundit on the Sunday Game. Also added to the programme are former Cork footballer, six-time All-Star and ten-time All Ireland winner, Valerie Mulcahy, Manager of Dingle Creativity and Innovation Hub Deirdre De Bhailís, broadcaster, producer, and presenter, Ruth Sanderson, and Arts Over Borders Creative Director Seán Doran,
