An Irishman Abroad

An Irishman In America with Marion McKeone (What Is CPAC? And Why Does It Matter): (Trailer)

February 26, 2021
Marion is on her way to CPAC. Jarlath, like a lot of people, hasn’t a notion what that is. Marion explains its significance and how Donald Trump’s appearance there on Sunday could be the beginning of his next run for the White House. Before all that they look at Tiger Woods and his near miss this week. Jarlath also asks about Florida and why it seems to be the most bizarre state in America.  There’s also a look ahead to this Sunday’s episode with the creator of the “Where Is George Gibney” podcast Mark Horgan and tonight’s comedy club with Ardal O’Hanlon.
If you have a question for Marion please send it through to and Jarlath will do his best to include it in the next episode.
