We are in beautiful South-West Kerry this afternoon and will bring our second sports economics event on to the Ring of Kerry at Caherviceen Library.
Among other things, the town is famous for being the birthplace of Irish political heavyweight Daniel O'Connell. O'Connell was the preeminent force in Irish politics during the first half of the 19th century, campaigning for Catholic emancipation and a repeal of the Acts of Union which combined Great Britain and Ireland. In 1829 he achieved Catholic emancipation in Ireland and is today often referred to as simply The Liberator or The Emancipator.
Fittingly, our event today has a uniquely Irish theme and considers economic, social and sporting issues in Gaelic Games. Throw-in is at 4.30pm and all are welcome. The full programme is below.
