It’s been a summer of gallivanting around the country for Banter with stops in Limerick (Make A Move festival), Donegal (Earagail Arts Festival) and Galway (Galway Arts Festival). Before we head back to our HQ at the Twisted Pepper in Dublin for an action-pakced autumn/winter season – we have some humdingers planned for the coming months – it’s time for one more festival adventure.

Did the media fail Ireland? will look at how the domestic media (online and offline) has covered the post-boom fallout and why the real stories which matter so much now never materialised until it was too late.

The panel: Simon Carswell (The Irish Times and author of Anglo Republic: Inside the Bank That Broke Ireland and Something Rotten: Irish Banking Scandals), Carol Hunt (The Sunday Independent), John Ryan (Broadsheet) and Enda Leahy (Irish Mail On Sunday).

The details: Mindfield stage, Sunday September 2, 3.45pm-ish

Big thanks to Naoise Nunn for the invitation.
