Converse With Caitríona Perry Here In Thurles

RTE’s journalist and presenter Ms. Caitríona Perry in Conversation

Date: Saturday September 15th.          Time: 7.30p.m.

Tipperary Library will presents a 60-minute discussion with Ms. Caitríona Perry based on her publication –  ‘In America: Tales from Trump Country’, which will take a look at the current political landscape of America, with particular reference to the businessman; television personality and current 45th President of the United States, latter who is expected to visit Ireland towards the end of this year.


In the BBC news video shown above, our readers will remember that US President Mr Donald Trump was on the phone to our then newly-elected Irish Taoiseach, (Prime Minister), Mr Leo Varadkar, when RTE’s Washington correspondent, the very lovely Ms Caitríona Perry, caught his roving eye.

This discussion will examine why and how President Donald Trump won the 2016 American election and whether he can succeed in getting re-elected for yet another term, again in 2020.

Ms. Perry will attempt to answer the question “Has America changed its mind and fallen out of love with Mr. Trump or is it the case that he is actually delivering on his promises?”

It will look at the Trump administration’s style of government, its successes and its failures thus far and ask; “What now for America on the world stage?”

The presentation will be followed by a ‘Question & Answer Session’ with her audience in attendance.

Note Please: Advance booking is required, so do please contact the Source Box Office at Tel No:(0504) 90204. Special access and wheelchair users should also inform the box office, at the time of booking, that they may need accessibility seating.
