‘Things Fall Apart’ - But Can the Centre Hold?

Peripherality and Centrality in Ireland and Europe.

The Limerick Civic Trust is delighted to be bringing back its Autumn Lecture Series this September which will take place in the unique setting of St Mary’s Cathedral, Limerick.

The event is in conjunction with the Kemmy Business School and is a six-part series of public lectures to be delivered by internationally renowned commentators and thought leaders in their field. The third lecture in the series with Jodie Ginsberg will take place on the 28th of September and will be moderated by Irish journalist Kevin Myers. Jodie will speak about:

“How censorship stifles debate and undermines the tenets of free and democratic societies”.
