Jan Carson, Fergal Keane  Aoife-Grace Moore: After Good Friday image

How fragile is peace, even 25 years after the Good Friday Agreement? Three Irish writers discuss their perspectives. Jan Carson is a community arts worker and writer of The Raptures and east Belfast-set The Fire Starters; Fergal Keane was the BBC’s Northern Ireland correspondent during the Troubles and writes about the Irish war of Independence; and Irish Journalist of the Year 2021, Aoife Moore, explores the rise of Sinn Féin in her upcoming book The Long Game. Chaired by Ruth Wishart.
