The President’s Letters: An Unexpected History of Ireland. Launch event with author Flor MacCarthy and guest speaker, Mary Robinson
18 November 2021

With over 400 letters, memos, cards, telegrams, drawings, notes and photographs, The Presidents’ Letters reveals a personal and unexpected story of Ireland since the inauguration of our first president, Douglas Hyde. Most of these have never been published before and a handful have never been seen by the public. Meticulously researched and handpicked for this unique book, these correspondences bring to life our presidents, Áras an Uachtaráin and all those who have passed through its doors.

This podcast from the launch event at dlr LexIcon on 30 October 2021 features Publisher and Managing Director of New Island Books, Edwin Higel, Former President of Ireland Mary Robinson, author, political presenter and journalist Flor MacCarthy and Aoife K. Walsh, MC and Commissioning Editor at New Island Books. The podcast finishes with a beautiful rendition of Mná na hÉireann by Niamh Ní Charra - musician, composer, singer and archivist!
