Dan Mulhall, Nessy, The London Ear

The London Ear on RTÉ 2XM // Show 176 with Ambassador Dan Mulhall

This week’s show gives you another chance to hear one of the most popular interviews of the year on The London Ear.

In August, I was delighted to able to chat to Irish Ambassador to Great Britain, Dan Mulhall, before he left London to take up a new position in Washington as Ireland’s Ambassador to the United States. Before that though, he sat down with me to chat about Irish Culture, Identity, and the dreaded B word.

You can follow Ambassador Mulhall on Twitter, he’s great for starting each day off with some poetry.

Our chat was recorded on August 3 2017 in the Irish Embassy in London. Thanks to Brendan and Bernadette for their help in organising this.
