Jonathan Swift, a fervent defender of the Church of Ireland, but also a fierce critic of the hypocrisy of his age, lived much of his life between London and Dublin: the first and second cities of the British Empire. 150 years after the disestablishment of his beloved Church, what would he think, against the backdrop of Brexit, the future holds for Ireland and Great Britain, or for Church/State relations? Join our panel as they discuss these and other important questions of our time. Panel includes The Most Reverend Justin Welby (The Archbishop of Canterbury), Dr Mary McAleese and more.

This event is proudly supported by the programme to mark the Disestablishment of the Church of Ireland and the Jonathan Swift Festival.

Free of Charge. Registration Essential (through the Jonathan Swift Festival website)
