Sunday Sequence tomorrow should be worth listening to. Slugger understands that the programme (about 9.15am) will include audio of Eoghan Harris chiding the assembled gathering about one-sided notions of victimhood. Also Malachi O’Doherty looks at how the festival is (or isn’t) changing in the context of NI’s new political dispensation. With the main protagonists in lovein mode, what is there left for the populace to get passionate about? Followed by a live interview with Martin Mansergh.
Mick is founding editor of Slugger. He has written papers on the impacts of the Internet on politics and the wider media and is a regular guest and speaking events across Ireland, the UK and Europe. Twitter: @MickFealty
