The latest addition to the *Maynooth University Alumni Lecture Series will take place in Dublin City Council's Wood Quay venue on the evening of Wednesday 24 February 2016.
With only two days to go to the General Election, we will put the spotlight on the mechanics of this election (e.g. boundary changes, political/vote trends, gender quotas, etc.) as well as exploring the key issues that are driving the debate and the electorate. Join us for a panel discussion by our very own political experts Professor John O’Brennan and Dr Mary Murphy from the Department of Sociology and Dr Adrian Kavanagh and lecturer, Claire McGing from the Department of Geography. Our moderator for the evening will be Shane Coleman (Irish Independent, Newstalk).
Beginning at 6.30pm with registration and refreshments and finishing at 8.30pm, this free event is open to all alumni. Given the venue capacity, there will be constraints so register now to avoid disappointment.
