After a sell-out launch of our new 'London Irish Lecture series' with Niall Breslin, we're delighted to present #2 with special guest Sinead Burke!

Through 2018, we will bring you a diverse and engaging mix of speakers to talk on areas of Irish social, cultural and creative interest.

More 'talks' than lectures, each event will offer the opportunity for engagement and interaction, and an evening of lively conversation and learning.
