We are very pleased to invite you to our next talk which will be given by Iona Institute Director, David Quinn.

David will discuss how ‘Official Ireland’ is ruthlessly pushing all consideration of God to the margins of Irish life. Christians are allowed little or no place in public debate, and God is rarely spoken of in public any more. So far as Irish public life is concerned, we have effectively ‘killed’ God. Except we cannot do that of course, so we do the next best thing; we pretend he is ‘dead’.

David will talk about the consequences of this, about how it has played out in Irish life over the last twenty-five years, and what we can do about it. David will draw on his new book, also called ‘How we kill God (and other tales of modern Ireland)’, which is a selection of his columns from 1994 to the present. The book features a biographical interview.

David is currently a columnist with The Sunday Times and The Irish Catholic. He has previously been a columnist with The Irish Independent and The Sunday Business Post.
