LEVIATHAN: POLITICAL CABARET
supported by RaboDirect – The straight-talking online bank
“WICKLOW: GARDEN OF IRELAND OR DUBLIN’S DUMPING GROUND?”
Building on the remarkable success of the Leviathan Think Tank tent at the wonderful Electric Picnic festival in Stradbally, Leviathan takes to the road again – this time to Bray’s Mermaid Arts Centre.

On Saturday 23rd September, writer and broadcaster David McWilliams will host what is sure to be a passionate interactive debate at Bray’s Mermaid Arts Centre on the sprawl of Dublin’s metropolis into County Wicklow and its effects for good and ill . The panel, including former Mayor of Bray and Green Party councillor, Deirdre de Burca; environmental campaigner, Vincent Salafia; Reg McCabe of IBEC and Larissa Nolan of the Sunday Independent will discuss the social and environmental impact of Ireland’s booming economy on the beloved Garden of Ireland.

Questions and comments from the audience will be very welcome and, in fact, expected.

There will also be musical satire from the mind of tortured genius Paddy Cullivan aka Clint Velour;
comedy from the very talented up-and-coming stand-up Bernard O’Shea.;
and our special guest to close the evening’s entertainment is the very brilliant Mary Coughlan.
