Una Mullally (Writer/ Journalist/ Activist): Episode 109

17Oct

This week journalist/ broadcaster/ writer Úna Mullally joins Jarlath to talk about her life, her work and on-going battle with colon cancer. It's a conversation that covers a lot of territory including the marriage referendum, sexism in Irish journalism, her face to face conversation with an Archbishop and why she believes it's so important to ignore the status quo. 

 

Úna also discusses her non-academic approach to her journalism degree and how she learned more during a semester abroad in Boston than she did in 4 years at DCU. She tells Jarlath what she believes makes a great writer and why she doubts her own skills on a daily basis. And we have a chance to hear what was happening behind the campaign that brought the nation together including a revetting first hand account of The Late Late Show equality debate that nobody will ever forget.
