Jarlath sat down with former Taoiseach Enda Kenny for a one of a kind conversation in front of a UCD Alumni event at London's Savoy Hotel.
With his retirement just around the corner, Enda speaks freely about his time at the helm. Jarlath asks what a person needs to succeed in a game as difficult as politics (8:00). Sitting a stone’s throw from the British Houses of Parliament they discuss why Britain is not the Empire that it once was (33:00) and his admiration for the way in which the Queen approached her visit to Ireland (40:00).
From the hilarious story about Donald Trump and Enda's wife (23:00) to the importance of 'letting the young people fly' (14:00), his heart-warming perspective on education (43:00), how stress was never an issue for him (12:00) and much more, this is a truly memorable chat with one of Ireland's most talked about and groundbreaking political figures.
