Fifth Meeting of the Irish Chesterton Society!

It's been a long time coming, I know, but I can finally announce the fifth meeting of the Irish Chesterton Society.

It's on Saturday the 28th of April (sorry for the short notice), at two o' clock, in the Central Catholic Library, 74 Merrion Square, Dublin.

This time we have a special treat as the Irish philosopher and writer Mark Dooley (author of Why Be Catholic? and Roger Scruton: The Philosopher on Dover Beach) has kindly agreed to give us a talk (title: the Democratic Faith).

Hope to see you there! Please let me know if you are thinking of coming as that will give me an idea of turnout!

Admission is free. All are welcome. No oath of loyalty to the Pope is required, despite the setting.



  1. Oh, I would have liked to see this, but (damn it all!) I've gone and arranged to get married next week and go off to Italy for three weeks on honeymoon. Do you think I should cancel?

  2. We could always try a video link-up....

  3. Thanks for a very interesting meeting. It's a pity there wasn't more time for socialisation and discussion

  4. You're welcome!

    People seemed to break up at the end, I didn't think most people were in the mood to hang around. Two hours seems to be the natural length for an event like that and one lady even suggested to me that people might prefer if it was shorter. It would be nice to speak to people in a more relaxed and chatty way afterwards, as Mark Dooley described post-lecture pub gatherings in talk.
