I had the pleasure of attending the 25th Anniversary of the John Hume & David Trimble Nobel Peace Prize in the Guildhall in Derry yesterday. The event was organised by the John And Pat Hume Foundation.
As part of the event, there was a video address by the journalist Fergal Keane. In it, he covers not only Northern Ireland but the general state of the world today.
It is only 7 minutes long, so give it the attention it deserves.
I help to manage Slugger by taking care of the site as well as running our live events. My background is in business, marketing and IT. My politics tend towards middle-of-the-road pragmatism, I am not a member of any political party. Oddly for a member of the Slugger team, I am not that interested in daily politics, preferring to write about big ideas in society. When not stuck in front of a screen, I am a parkrun Run Director.
