Renowned Derry commentator Susan Mckay to launch Scariff Harbour Festival

The Derry-born author and journalist Susan McKay will be in Clare on Friday to open the 17th Scariff Harbour Festival.

Best known as a TV commentator and opinion columnist, Susan grew up in Derry at the start of the Troubles and lived through the tensions and violence on her own doorstep.

As a consequence, understanding violence and its legacy underpins much of her life’s work in a variety of professional spheres. Susan joined us live on the show to discuss the opening of the festival, discuss topics such as Lyra McKee and the possibility of a Border poll.
